A Virginia Tech student recently asked Nirvana to record a video shout-out ... and may or may not be under the impression that Kurt Cobain is alive and/or a woman.

Nirvana's former label, Sub Pop, posted the letter they got from the VT student asking them to record this message to university students:

  • VT Letter
  • Kurt Cobain Picture

"What's up, Virginia Tech? This is Nirvana! Just wanted to wish you guys a Happy Homecoming Week and good luck at the game this Saturday. LETS [sic] GO HOKIES!"

The student would be happy to link back to Nirvana's Facebook and Twitter accounts, they said, and then added this kicker to further make the case:

"It presents great publicity for them, as well as Virginia Tech loves Nirvana. We'd love to have her in our video." Alongside the Ying Yang Twins, no less.

The next time you break out your camera for that Kodak moment you feel might inspire the next generation, think twice.

Helen and Les Brown, a couple of California sweethearts born on the same day and married 75 years ago, died earlier this month - one day apart.

They were 94.

"It was a real love match, wasn't it?" their oldest son, Les Jr., told the Long Beach Press-Telegram. "They were together every day for 75 years."

Calif. Couple

The young Long Beach lovebirds eloped on September 19, 1937, and were married against their own parents' wishes, according to their sons.

Helen was from a working-class family, while Les was from a wealthier one. Both sides believed the love would never last ... so much for that.

An Oregon woman found that her Equifax credit report contained false information and sued Equifax when she was denied credit by multiple banks.

As a result, she won HUGE in court.

At one point, Equifax told her that her account had accidentally been combined with another person's. Miller eventually took Equifax to court in 2011.

Friday, a jury ordered Equifax to pay Miller $18.6 million, one of the largest-ever financial victories for consumer complaints against credit companies.

John Milkovisch has a different idea of recycling than the average beer drinker.

In the 1970s, the Houston resident decided to put the thousands of cans he had saved in his attic to unusual good use: he cut each one open and began to wallpaper the outside of his residence.

Beer can house

According to Ruben Guevara - the head of restoration and preservation of the Beer Can House in Houston's Memorial Park area - Milkovisch's goal was not to make his home into any kind of attraction:

"He said himself that if there was a house similar to this a block away, he wouldn't take the time to go look at it. He had no idea what was the fascination about what he was doing."

Amanda Berry showed up at the RoverFest concert in Cleveland on Saturday night, where she was cheered by a huge crowd - and rapper Nelly.

Held captive in the city for a decade, she made her first public appearance a day after Ariel Castro pleaded guilty to kidnapping and rape charges.

Berry walked on stage with her family, wearing sunglasses and dressed in jeans and a black T-shirt. She smiled broadly, but didn't address the crowd.

Nelly called Berry back to the stage after his music set to meet her.

Berry, 27, was held captive along with Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight until their stunning rescue this May, when Charles Ramsey aided their escape.

All of whom vanished between 2002 and 2004.
