Naked For Nirvana.

An interesting story I heard on NPR today. The once naked infant that adorned the cover of Nirvana's "Nevermind" is now 17 years old, and telling his story. While 'his story' isn't particularyly relevant to pop culture, Spencer Elden is telling a story that is worth a listen. It is pretty fascinating to hear the perspective of someone who was so much a part of pop culture, but had no idea at the time. When he was just one year old, Spencer could hypothetically see a 9 foot by 9 foot billboard of himself stretched across the walls of Tower Records. Now, living a typical 17 year old's life, Spencer's story offers an interesting perspective into how pop culture has changed over the past couple decades. To read, or listen, to the entire segment, follow the link below:

This is so cool that you found this. I was a huge Nirvana fan back in the day and never once thought who this baby was/is. Interesting read, Nab!
