This feels familiar and sad. She’s right, she will think of him every minute of every day.

To My Sweet Christopher,

You were the best father, husband and son-in-law. Your patience, empathy and love always showed through.

You had always said I saved you, that you wouldn’t be alive if it were not for me. My heart gleamed to see you happy, living and motivated. Excited for life. Doing everything you could to give back. We had the time of our lives in the last decade and I’m sorry, my sweet love, that I did not see what happened to you that night. I’m sorry you were alone, and I know that was not you, my sweet Christopher. Your children know that too, so you can rest in peace.

I’m broken, but I will stand up for you and I will take care of our beautiful babies. I will think of you every minute of every day and I will fight for you. You were right when you said we are soulmates. It has been said that paths that have crossed will cross again, and I know that you will come find me, and I will be here waiting.

I love you more than anyone has ever loved anyone in the history of loving and more than anyone ever will.

Always and forever,
Your Vicky

:Vicky Cornell’s letter to Chris Cornell as posted @ billboard on 5/24/17:

 

Like a Stone
On a cobweb afternoon
In a room full of emptiness
By a freeway I confess
I was lost in the pages
Of a book full of death
Reading how we’ll die alone
And if we’re good, we’ll lay to rest
Anywhere we want to go
In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently
I’ll wait for you there
Like a stone
I’ll wait for you there
Alone
On my deathbed I will pray
To the gods and the angels
Like a pagan to anyone
Who will take me to heaven
To a place I recall
I was there so long ago
The sky was bruised
The wine was bled
And there you led me on
In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently
I’ll wait for you there
Like a stone
I’ll wait for you there
Alone
Alone
And on I read
Until the day was gone
And I sat in regret
Of all the things I’ve done
For all that I’ve blessed
And all that I’ve wronged
In dreams until my death
I will wander on
In your house I long to be
Room by room patiently
I’ll wait for you there
Like a stone
I’ll wait for you there
Alone
Alone

True Romance soundtrack gets deluxe vinyl box set release for 25th anniversary. Quentin Tarantino cult classic coming to vinyl for the first time. GOT MINE!

Despite the soundtrack’s notoriety, this will mark its first legit release on vinyl (there was a South Korean release of “dubious origin”), and they went all out with the presentation. The deluxe package comes in either Clarence-inspired “king gold” vinyl (limited to 297 copies), Alabama-inspired clear with aqua and pink splatter vinyl (limited to 686), or white blood splatter vinyl (limited to 2,000).

Our True Romance Story

Other than the violence and mob mayhem this movie has elements to describe what our true romance felt like…two lonely and unlikely people winding up together, compassion, adventures, Elvis, phone booth sex :). BMF loved Pulp Fiction (BMF!) and from there discovered everything Quentin Tarantino to include True Romance. He calls me up one day and tells me drop what you are doing and go find this movie and watch it. So of course I did. (more…)

Found a BMF burn today.

Found a whole big container filled up with hundreds of Jeff’s cd burns. I shall have to go thru every single one, should take just about 10 years. I found a video of us from 2008 learning the proper way to drink absinthe. Real absinthe, the illegal kind before they legalized it. It was so wonderful to see him again with his perfect high spirit and pure true love ways. I can’t wait to watch it again.

He burned the following 22 songs, not positive when as the date is fucked up @ 12/31/1994. That is of course not right. There are no names on the 22 songs. I’ll have to listen to each and every one, but I already know it will be filled up with all the right songs to remind me of him tonight … along with another random movie pick called, Rabbit Hole. The part with the dog…crushes me with familiarity. His spirit is shining hard tonight. “You carry it around, always, like a brick in your pocket, it never goes away.” (more…)
