A Seattle musician's life and career are reminiscent to those of Kurt Cobain.
Thadeus A. Thomas was a real Yellow Pages salesman who wandered onto the set one day and tried to sell the cast and crew Yellow Page ad space. Gus Van Sant was so intrigued by him he asked him to appear in the film.
Have you uh, talked to your daughter? Hmm.
Blake: Hmm. Yeah I've been talking to her on the phone.
Record Executive: What do you say to her?
Blake: Hmm-mm. I do the voices she likes. I don't know. I tell her I miss her.
Throughout the film Blake plays guitar both left handed and right handed. (Kurt Cobain - on whom Blake is reportedly based - played left handed.)
