Next month, various items from Kurt Cobain’s personal collection will be put up for auction. Among them, his actual Blockbuster video card — issued from the 1508 North Orange Grove location in Los Angeles. If a laminated membership card doesn’t do it for you, maybe the MTV Moon Man that Nirvana won for 1992’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is more your style? You can get more info on the auction by checking out this report from NME.
Starting bid for the Blockbuster card? $100. The Moon Man? $50,000. I’d go for the card, TBH.
That way, perhaps I can use it here — the Twitter account for the very last Blockbuster store in existence:
The bell by the register is there to alert us if you have a rental question. The mini gong is for medical emergencies.
