Rockstars and their cats...

Yep. I know this is a slightly strange topic, but I've decided to add a little life to this blog by adding a bit of feral fun. (Note:Although the picture above was probably made by putting a poor kitty through a lot of pain, you have got to admit, it is cute.)


I am not quite so sure what to make of Kurt Cobain and his history with cats. I heard him say in an interview once that he liked cats a lot, as they had a 'Fuck You' attitude. And from the pictures above, it is quite obvious he gets on well with cats . But there have been quite a few rumours going around about Kurt's mistreatment of cats.Apparently,in 1981, Kurt killed a cat by trapping it inside his parents’ chimney. This was an accident. In 1991, Kurt dyed his kitten, Quisp, red, white and blue with Kool Aid — then watched it have sex with his pet rabbit Stew. This was not an accident. However, I have found no proof of this, so until further notice, it is merely a rumour. I desperately hope it is, otherwise as a cat lover, I might have to stop liking Kurt. However, that will never happen. Nirvana's music is too good.


Oh Freddie, I do love your pyjamas here. Oh, and your cats are adorable too. Although the cat in the other picture looks slightly freaked out. I can just imagine the thoughts running through his head ."Oh my goodness, I'm in the arms of a rock genius! What should I do?" Just enjoy the moment little kitty. 

Freddie Mercury went as far as to write a song about his cat called 'Delilah'. The album's dedication went 'To all cat lovers-screw everyone else'

Delilah, Delilah, oh my, oh my, oh my - you're irresistible - ooh ooh ooh
You make me smile when I'm just about to cry
You bring me hope, you make me laugh - and I like it
You get away with murder, so innocent
But when you throw a moody you're all claws and you bite
That's alright !
Delilah, Delilah, oh my, oh my, oh my - you're unpredictable - ooh ooh ooh ooh
You make me so very happy
When you cuddle up and go to sleep beside me
And then you make me slightly mad
When you pee all over my Chippendale suite
Ooh ooh Delilah
Ooh ooh Delilah
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You take over my house and home
You even try to answer my telephone
Delilah, you're the apple of my eyes
Meow, meow, meow,
Delilah - I love you, Delilah oh
Ooh you make me so very happy - you give me kisses
And I go out of my mind - ooh ooh
Meow, meow, meow, meow,
You're irresistible - I love you Delilah
Delilah - I love you, ha ha
You make me very happy - oooh oh yeah
I love your kisses
I love your kisses
I love your kisses
I love your kisses
I love your your your kisses
I love your kisses

AWWW, isn't that cute!

John Lennon is the first of our Beatles in this blog entry. Lennon like Mercury had quite a strong obsession with cats and although he didn't go as far as writing a song about cats; when he was living with May Pang, he named his two cats the musically derived Major and Minor. 
In Liverpool, there were at least three cats in his house. When he was on tour as a Beatle, he would phone home to his Aunt Mimi to ask how the cats were getting on. His Mum had a cat called Elvis, named after you know who of course.And when living with his wife Cynthia, they had about ten different cats. 


I couldn't really find that much information about Paul McCartney and his cats, but I did find these very cute pictures.


It seems to me that most of the Beatles had a fondness for cats.
Although I couldn't find any pictures of the last Beatle, Ringo Starr, with cats, I did manage to find this:
Perhaps he prefers animals that are slightly more ferocious.


 That cat looks very Rock N Roll.

What's that cat doing in the car anyway? If you tried to get my cat in a car, she would scratch your face until you were permanently scarred for life.

I really do love this picture.

And to finish off...
Here's a picture of my beautiful cat:

Blogs in general

People who write blogs are usually thought of as self centered. I mean, who really cares about what you have to say? But in my case, I'm not really writing this blog for anyone apart from myself. It's nice just being able to talk about whatever you want. I know, that there is a chance no one will follow my blog. But that's ok, writing a blog is a nice way for me to express my feelings.I think everyone should have a blog. Because to be honest, no one is going to read it unless you choose to tell people about it. And you don't have to. It's kind of like a diary you can access from anywhere.

Oh, and I'm going to write myself a personal note to stop typing "..."
It's just dot dot dot all the time. I need to stop.

Uh oh... I knew this was going to happen

I told myself I wasn't going to get a blog. I told myself time and time again. Everyone in school has one, and I absolutely HATE copying others, it shows no originality. And yet, it was so tempting...

I love singing, and I've decided I'm going to try and get a career in music. I'm teaching myself how to play the keyboard and guitar. Unfortunately... I'm not really that good yet. Firstly, teaching yourself is not really the best way to learn, but my parents won't let me get lessons. Secondly...I only got my guitar two weeks ago. So bear with me. I'm no professional.

So, now I've decided to get a blog to express my feelings, as none of my friends are as in to rock  music as I am.  Who cares if I'm not showing any originality by getting a blog like everyone else. I just hope no one from school finds this....

I might have to switch schools.
