Mary Lou Lord described you as sensitive, vulnerable and said you aroused maternal feelings in her. 
Mary is cool. Maybe she thinks I’m vulnerable. She knew Kurt Cobain, and we met right after his death. I think that ever since we got to know each other, she tried to transfer the feelings she had for him onto me. But “vulnerable”… that actually fits Cobain better than me.

And it’d burn up part of the counter top and we’d have to go ‘OK, let’s do it again.’ Clean off the counter top, then here comes the robot, then burn the lyrics. I don’t know, it was kind of fun, watching the lyrics burn.”
