Q of THE WEEK: "LEATHER ME ALL OVER" is OVER! (scroll down for the past two weeks of responses) *New Q begins on December 4
SHAWN SAYS: Jon, as it should be...your Ramones leather should rule your wardrobe.
My favorite leather is a tight fitting 70's style women's leather jacket. It's hot as hell, I tell you! And it smells like a combination of leather, smoke, and rock n' roll...mmmm rock n' roll...know what I mean?
"Black leather, I wear it on stage Black leather, I'm gonna wear it to my grave Black leather, I will wear it anywhere Because my name is JOAN JETT and I don't care Just the feel of it on my flesh make me Feel wild feel possessed But I'm not don't get me wrong I'm the baddest slick chick and I'm singin' This song"
BARBARA SAYS:Leather? I could write a book about leather. There was nothing hotter than Jim Morrison in his leathers. Lonn Friend's book is Life on Planet Rock. Mine would be Musicians In Leather.
You know, a coffee table book for lonely nights? Every photographer wants to do a coffee table book. Maybe Scott Weiland on the cover...Halford on the intro page...David Lee Roth on the back. Joan Jett could write the intro.
I have two favorite pieces of leather. I have a leather vest with a Danzig press pass from the first show I ever shot and a leather motorcycle jacket that I wear to every shoot.
I wear the vest for Danzig, and the jacket for Lemmy from Motorhead. -Lemmy always has on leather. Leather is hot, sexy, and tough.
Nothing says ROCK WITH YOUR COCK OUT like leather. Nothing says touch me like leather. Tell Santa I want a pair of black leather lambskin pants for Christmas. I already have the steel toed Harleys.
GREAT QUESTION! Maybe next week should be tattoos! (Did that already-JL)
Love, Peace, and Wishing for a ten thousand dollar Harley Store Gift Certificate NOW.

NICOLE SAYS: hmmmm. My fave leather would have to be... some leather arms I made out of an old pair of leather trousers, that I always wear for gigs.
They criss cross on the inside, and are a black snakeskin effect on the outside. For some reason they make my arms feel stronger, and so when I dance I put more forse into every move...ace!
Couldn't dance with leather trousers though. How would I move? lol And, of course my leather belt with chains attached for the full Shakira effect. LOL

Q of THE WEEK: (scroll down to Monday, November 27)
GEORGIE SAYS: Hey Jonathan! Hope you're having a good week. I have a pair of Acme cowboy boots that I picked up a flea market (they call 'em 'swap meets' out west) in Kentucky for about $75.
They're black with a red flame pattern. If Gene Simmons were a cowboy, he'd wear boots like that. hahaha
But truth be told, if I had a black leather Ramones jacket, it just might be my #1 favorite piece of leather. ~Georgie
JONATHAN: The Ramones black leather jacket with the full on emblem is my favorite, but what I neglected to say is that it is a small medium and fits Jeanette better than me. The one I wear is my much worn Sisters Of Mercy heavy black leather jacket with a their huge logo on the back. Turns heads. Especially when nuns see it.-LOL

Q of THE WEEK: "LEATHER ME ALL OVER" continues (see yesterday)
JANE SAYS: Hi Jonathan. Well, here goes my favourite piece of leather is a jacket I bought 18 years ago on Venice beach.
I also had it spray painted on the back with an original design, all flames and skulls etc - 'really cool'. Not that I can wear it so much now - I just tend to take it out of my wardrobe and get all nostalgic about the great time I had in California, ahhh the memories of the fun times I had wearing that jacket. Thanks for the question it has made me smile!
TRUDY SAYS: Hi Jonathan. My fave leather item is definitely my 3/4 bikers leather jacket. I totally loved the thing as soon as I set eyes on it!!
Later on in that year, I think it was 1989-1990, I had the honor of meeting Little Angels, The Almighty and Dangerous Toys and more than willingly all the boys from all the bands signed the back of the jacket for me. :)
It is still a talking piece with people I meet and always a 'happy memory' conversation with my friends. I'll always cherish it as some of the people in the music industry that I've idolised and supported over the years have taken their time out to show their support to me, one of the fans, and also it's something that my children love and adore. :)
HOLLY SAYS: Mine is my favorite leather mini-skirt...and vest ...and jacket and Highthigh high heeled boots.
Entire outfit. It is so cute.

EMMA SAYS: My biker leathers!! :o) Because they keep me safe & look great too! November 21 Björk Born in 1965 in the Icelandic capital city, daughter of Gudmundur Gunnarsson (who was electrician) and Hildur Hauksdóttir, who divorced before her second birthday, Björk grew up in a hippie type community with her mother and her 7 siblings. She started to study classical music at the age of 5 and released her first album in 1977 (mainly traditional Ice- landic folk songs and international hits translated in Icelandic) when she was only 11. Dur- ing her teenage years, Björk became involved in several bands, most of them being punk: Spit & Snot (1977), Exodus (1979-80), Jam 80 (1980), Tappi Tíkarrass (1981-83, who fea- tured the documentary Rokk í Reykjavík (1982)) and Kukl (1984-86). Then she formed the pop group The Sugarcubes with Einer Orn and Siggi Baldurson and eventually other members Thor Eldon (with whom she had a son in 1986), Magg Ornotfsdottir and Bragi Olafsson. The band released its first single in 1986 and its first album, "Life's Too Good", in 1988, and disc- overed international success, especially in UK. During her Sugarcubes years, Björk also coll- aborated with the Icelandic jazz group Gudmundar Ingólfssonar Trio for the album "Gling-Glo" in 1990, and featured 808 State's "Ooops", which is the start of her electronic music interest. The Sugarcubes eventually split after a few albums in 1992 and in 1993, Björk released her first solo album, "Debut", collaborating with producer Nellee Hooper. The worldwide acclaimed success of the album (nearly 3 million copies sold) enventually gave birth to her second album, "Post", in 1995, also with help of Nellee Hooper but also techno gurus Graham Massey (from 808 State), Howie Bernstein and Tricky, followed by the remix album "Telegram" the year after. There is so much more, including her riviting perfomance in "Dancer In The Dark" in 2000. She continues to sing and act, and will be around for a long long time.

SASH SAYS: Hi Jonathan. This is a good question. My current favourite is my black leather sofa I bought a few weeks ago as it's huge, glossy, butter-soft and wonderful for curling up on with the bloke after a hard day at the office. Although, I also recently bought a pair of dove-grey goatskin leather gloves which are fast becoming a favourite item too. I LOVE leather.

NEW Q of THE WEEK:LEATHER ME ALL OVER
I cant imagine anyone who doesnt love leather.
Whether its an article of clothing or any item-what is your favorite LEATHER?
PIL SAYS: Hi Jonathaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan! :) :) :)
I'm glad you haven't forgotten all about me, although I deserve it for my flakines - but what can I do; I'm TOTALLY occupied with my baby sons...very, very active baby sons, might I add. :)
Well! You didn't, and I appreciate that very much. So now it's about leather, I see...you just keep amazing me with your ideas!
LEATHER! Oh, leather! I simply LOVE leather. It keeps me warm and breathing, I truly think it doesn't look better on anybody else but me, just as nothing else fits me better than leather. Personally, I think that it's because I'm a cow.
He he! :)
Nah, seriously, I really do like leather. It's warm, beautiful, sexy, protective and it just gets better the more you wear it. My favorite leather object must be my dark brown leather pants, that have followed me through thick and thin for almost 15 years now.
We've been firewalking together in snowy Norway, we've danced in the mud at Roskilde Festival, we've been riding motorcycle in the rain and at night, we've practically been inseparable through every winter here in Denmark since I got them. We've been slapped in the booty several times because it just looks too tempting not to, I guess.
I think they've actually even hooked me up with some dates, I might not have gotten without them. :)
And of course they've also played their part and had their share of the outcome at those occasions. ;)
Come to think of it, I think I have to pull them out of the closet and wear them right away now! Gotta go, bye-bye!

Q of THE WEEK is over! (scroll down for all responses) *New Q begins on Monday November 20
1. Strange Days by the Doors. -"Lost Little Girl" would be as appropriate as hell for being lost on a fucking island as I wait for Jim to come and save my sorry ass, because I know he is still alive...and I want his pants. -"People Are Strange" would remind me of the real world, and "Love Me Two Times" for the ultimate Jim fantasy.
2. Grace by Jeff Buckley. Jeff has this spiritual thing that happens with his voice in his work. The has never been anybody that sounds like Buckley and there never will be. He sure as hell doesn't sound like Lukas Rossi to me. Who thought that up?
3. Full Moon Fever by Tom Petty. If you are lost on a fucking island, you need something to keep you going. Tracks like "I Won't Back Down", and "Yer So Bad" just keep you going. Of Course, I would have preferred a whole fucking Tom box set.
4. Enemy of God by Kreator. If I am stuck on a desert island, I need music to be pissed of with. Mille can reach right in and make you want to raise the "Flag of Hate".
5. The Essential Suzi Quatro. Suzi was first. She still kicks ass. She had inspired me to become a singer-and then I started smoking. Now, I write about music and take pictures instead. Suzi needs to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along with Joan Jett and so many other women that kick ass.
I would also need a three month supply of Jack Daniels and the finest herb available ...food and water might be nice-but if I am going to go I want to be happy. UPDATE:
However I wish in hindsite I put Stevie Wonder -Innervisions in there somewhere *sigh*
The Queen one was in memory of my mispent youth!
I am still mispending as much as my age will allow.
AND ANOTHER UPDATE:
Ok, here goes the revised version, in no particular order (disclaimer, the old choices still stand, but I am a greedy bitch)
1) Muse -Absolution 2) Foo Fighters One by One 3) Neneh Cherry Man 4) Queens of the Stone Age Songs for the Deaf 5) Scissor Sisters Scissor Sisters
And the winner is ..ah that would be telling!
JONATHAN: You are so cute Jules. I ran every change. I hope that was it? -lol ;-)
November 16 Marg Helgenberger Ahh, the face of one of my favorite TV shows, "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" was born in 1958 in Fremont, Nebraska. She earned a degree in drama at Northwestern University. A talent scout recruited her from there to work on the soap opera "Ryan's Hope" (1975) where she appeared over the course of the next four years. In TV series she won an Emmy for her portrayal of a hard- bitten prostitute who catered to Vietnam War soldiers, in the series "China Beach" (1988). She also was George Clooney's love interest in a multi-episode arc of the monumentally successful TV series "ER" (1994). Got her start as a local news weather girl in her native Nebraska. The news producer felt her name was too long and made her change it to Margi McCarty. This was her night job. Her day job was as a meat boner at the meat packing plant where her father was a meat in- spector. Her greatest claim to fame on the silver screen may be when she played opposite Julia Roberts as a chemical exposure victim in the popular movie Erin Brockovich (2000). In her personal life, Helgenberger is the daughter of a cancer survivor and is very active in supporting research for breast cancer.

Q of THE WEEK Rocks on: (Scroll down for all the responses)
C-ROD SAYS: Cool. First question can I crash land with an ipod instead of a CD player? No? alrighty then...5 CD's:
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts -Sinner. Just because I'm hooked on it right now. Thommy kicks ass on the drums and I could carve me some drumsticks and play along.
Twisted Sister -Stay Hungry. For those headbanging moments and the title would be relevant unless the island has plentiful plant and animal life.
Dio -Dream Evil. Just so I could listen and cry with "all the fools sailed away"
Thommy Price -Sex Drums Rock 'n' Roll. Unless this plane wreck is in the future after "Thats Amore" comes out, then I want that instead because "I play drums" kicks some serious ass!
Ramones -Road to Ruin. This one doesn't need an explanation does it? JONATHAN: I spoke with Thommy the other night. In the new year he plans to go back in the studio and finish it. I have a full demo of it...but cannot share it. You can listen to my radio shows on the net, and can hear Thommy ocassionally.
2. Alanis Morrisette (cos I can't help singing with and won't lose vocals whilst stranded) 3. Tenacious D (always make me laugh out loud even when alone and never fail to get me through a boring day at work) 4. Skunk Anansie (still have lots to analyse musically, vocally and lyrically ..could take months) 5. My own (So I can at least continue writing whilst stranded =D)
LESLIE SAYS: Stranded on an island with 5 CD's...they would have to be:
Scorpions: World Wide Live. A great compilation of their music. Queensryche: Operation Mindcrime. Need I say more? Now 23: Love the mix's occasionally.

Elvis Presley - anything....even the Christmas Album "If Every Day Were Like Christmas". LOVE HIM! Is there anything I need to explain about THE KING!???
The Beatles-1967 - 1970 - Such a diverse collection of the best songs ever written. Some of my favorites are "A Day In the Life", "Hey Jude", "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", "Something", "Across the Universe".
Heart Greatest Hits: Live - I LOVE Ann Wilson's voice...and the songs on this record are powerful, dangerous and sexy..."Barracuda", "Crazy On You", "Bebe Lestrange". The Wilson sisters at their finest. :-)
U2 -"Unforgettable Fire" - I already told you guys last time what I feel about Bono. The music and magic of this band is incredible. I love the ambience of this album and over vibe.
30 Seconds to Mars -"Beautiful Lie" - I love Jared Leto's vocals. They are full of passion and conviction. His acting career is a side job to his delivery of these vocals and lyrics on this album. The soundscapes and production are enchanting and powerful. Love the dynamics and roman- ticism.
Aerosmith -A Little South of Sanity Various -Queen of the Damned Soundtrack Rooster -Rooster Goo Goo Dolls -can't think of the album title? Green Day -Warning
Ok why I chose the albums. Very difficult choice as I have so many albums that I love.
Aerosmith as you know are my fave band...and that album is a best of and covers all my fave songs by them. Queen of the Damned Soundtrack...I tend to play this when getting ready to go out. I'ts very heavy and dark and I just enjoy listening to that album. Rooster...a great band, very under rated I think. Not one bad song on their debut album. Old style rock and the whole album rocks. One you can sing along to all the time.
Goo Goo Dolls...another band that are very underated. Again, a great album. Not a bad song on the album. I love every single song on this album too and can sing along to it all. Green Day. Everyone seems to have gone Green Day mad after their album American Idiot...which is a great album to be fair to them. But I luv the Warning album. Very varied styles on this album. Again, can sing along to all the songs. Not a bad song on the album, my fave song being "Misery".

MARIE SAYS: 1. Nora Jones -Because I love to sing along to this CD and it relaxes me. 2. AC/DC -Back in Black. This CD will make me want to shake my ass no matter what so I won't get to lazy or depressed. 3. Eagles -Greatist Hits Vol II. The best sing along rock album ever. 4. Led Zepplin -Stairway to Heaven. Just because it's part of who I am today. 5. Lynyrd Skynyrd -Greatist Hits. They were my first concert at age 12 and made me who I am today. This will be the CD that keeps me sane!
DAWN SAYS: OK Jonathan. Gotta love these "Lost" questions. Ok, here goes:
1. Rent -Movie Soundtrack (these songs have been sung by my friend's and me so much at work that they are permanently wedged in my brain and it would make me think of them). 2. Kimberely Locke -"One Love". She's one of my favorite female singers of today (not only 'cause she was a finalist on American Idol), but also cause I've met her dozens of times and seen her perform and I love her to death. So I'd want to have memories of that with me. 3. Depeche Mode -Singles 86-93. Every song of their's is a haunting, personal, deep and exhilirating experience for me and I've loved them since I was 17, one of my all time faves. 4. U2 -"The Joshua Tree". By far, the BEST album I've ever owned. I coin my life on certain songs and I wouldn't be able to NOT listen to BONO being stranded. 5. ANY 80s' compilation- Have to have the music that defined me and makes me laugh, sing, jump around and act nuts (something to cheer me up when those days get realllllly long!!)
TINA SAYS: Oh, this is a fun one! Lets see....how 'bout some Cat Stevens for sure. He makes me feel good. I could relax and forget where the hell I am and the mess I've got myself into!
Then there would have to be some Bob Dylan 'cause he is real and could help keep my mind straight!
How bout some Taproot 'cause they say everything I'm thinkin' all the time.
Gotta have some Alvin Lee to play me some blues!
Last but not least for sure Id need some Megadeth to deal with my anger issues. Specially while I'm tryin to catch that fish cause I'm gonna get hungry for sure! lol. Only 5? That would suck all by itself don't u know?!!!
November 13 Kiera Harris The 5' 7" upcoming actress and model was born in 1986 in Wichita, Kansas, the 3rd of 4 daughters (Sky, Trinity and Zandren) of parents Denise and Jim, Kiera Harris graduated from Wichita High School North in 2005. She began her performing career in dance at the age of 3. This continued throughout high school and led to becoming an award-winning cheerleader and letter woman. Kiera was also active in choir and swimming as well as being an honor student. As she grew up, her height and beauty made her a natural for modeling which she pursued throughout the Midwest. Her mo- deling exposure brought her to the attention of independent film producers eager to cast her in their projects. Although never completed, her participation in two other films, "Adrenaline" and "Cursed Waters", gave her the invaluable experience she need- ed to tackle her co-starring role in "Framing Frankie". While filming "Adrenaline", Kiera had the memorable opportunity to work with and be coached by actor Ray Duke. The micro-budget horror film "Cursed Waters" gave her a chance to work with many hand- crafted special effects with Phillips Films. Kiera has been a model representing several independent skin care lines along the way since she was a young child. It was through a modeling website that she was discovered by Nigel Sheppard and Ben Allen to co-star in "Framing Frankie" in 2005.

You are Lost on an island, and with only The clothes on your back, you luckily have a small portable CD player with about 3-months supply worth of batteries.
What 5 CDs are you hoping you have with you that will keep you from going insane?
Explain why you will be able to listen to them Over and over and over? Remember its at least 3-months.
JEN SAYS: I would take Enigma, David Bowie, the old ones like Uncle Aurther, Silly Boy Blue, ect.
Sting. Nothing like the Sun album. George Michael, and Oleta Adams Circle Of One album.
Good to hear from you. Will try and respond to all bulletins. They are better than blogs for getting a response as I have found out. Keep them coming.
Love from Jen xxx JONATHAN: Thanks Jen. I agree. Blogs are ok...but I'd like to think that people love reading about what other people think on certain subjects. So, please do continue to participate. :-)
NIKKI SAYS: Okay...this is kind of a tough one. WTF? Batteries and a CD player?
Are there any special "self pleasuring" devices? That would throw off the "battery use" dynamic...because I'd have to play CD's for a couple of hours and then hum for the remainder of the 3 months.
In the event that wasn't an option *sigh* I suppose I'd have to have;
Tool -10000 Days Imogen Heap -Speak For Yourself Jane's Addiction -Nothing's Shocking Soundgarden -Down On The Upside Red Hot Chili Peppers -Blood, Sugar, Sex, Magik
Oh GOD...I'd be in HELL...JUST FIVE?!?! JEEZUS...I change my music more than the Republican Party changes their "spin" on current events. I can't do it!
What about Big Brother and The Holding Company? STP -Core? Prince? Warren Haynes? Gov't Mule??? Or...Tears for Fears?!!? Concrete Blonde? Stevie Ray Vaughan?? Muddy Waters?!? NIRVANA!?!?!?!?!? The Foo Fighters?!!!!!!!
I can't do it!! This whole island thing WILL NOT WORK!!! Aaaarrghghhhh!!
JONATHAN: LOL...as I told you Nikki, this is by far the best and most humorous response I've recieved up to this point. Fun reading it. Thanks again. ;-)
1. Frank Sinatra's -My Way. I want Frank singing to me at night being lonely there. 2. Depeche Mode's -The Singles 86-98. They could make my life easier on that Island for your...a little lust can't kill you anyway. :) 3. Bo Bice -The Real thing. Well if there will be a little lust...I want Bo with me! :O 4. Echoes: The Best of Pink Floyd- Do I have to explain this one? 5. The Cure's -Galore. To help me with my Friday's Madness! lol! Hugs!
WENDY SAYS: This took some time to mull over, but I would like to have a Reggae CD. Any Horace Andy to trick me into thinking I am on vacation.
Any Ella Fitzgerald, cuz she has the sweetist voice that any sad song has an uplifting mood to it (also it's fun to sing along with her).
A CD of David Sedaris. Reading his books will entertain me at night and/or feel like someone reading to me before bed.
Pizzicato Five, cuz it's fun to sing along with while making a hut and tools too, and Thelonious Monk to produce fire.
November 10 Britanny Murphy One of the stars of "Sin City" (and filming "Sin City 2"), was born in Atlanta, Georgia and raised in Edison, New Jersey. Brittany first honed her acting skills in regional theater at the age of 9. By age 13, she had signed on with a manager and began appearing in tele- vision commercials. In 1991, at the age of 13, Brittany and her mother moved to Burbank, California, where she landed her first television role on the show "Blossom" (1991). This lead to a starring role on "Drexell's Class" (1991), a series that proved to be short lived. Brittany's major breakthrough film appearance was in Clueless (1995), the Emma meets "Beverly Hills, 90210" (1990) comedy, in which she starred opposite of Alicia Silverstone. In February 2000, she appeared [with Girl, Interrupted (1999) costar Winona Ryder] in "The Vagina Monologues", reading a chilling story of a Bosnian woman's rape camp exp- eriences. Was set to star in a biopic of Janis Joplin, but the film was grounded over battles for the rights to Joplin's songs. She had won the role over Courtney Love and Emily Watson. In the early 90s, she was the lead singer in her band, called "Blessed Soul". Ranked 32nd on the Maxim Hot 100 in 2003. Named #8 on the Maxim magazine Hot 100 of 2005 list. In May of 2006, her single "Faster Kill Pussycat" with Paul Oakenfold reached Number 7 in the UK singles chart.She's a huge fan of Tears for Fears and stars in their most recent video "Closest Thing to Heaven".

EVA SAYS:Slowdive--Souvlaki, Belle & Sebastian--Tigermilk, Siouxsie and the Banshees--Kaleidescope, Lil Kim--Norotious K.I.M., The Smiths--Hatful of Hollow.
I'd choose Souvlaki for that trancy, meditative feel that brings me to memories of rainy mornings and heartache; Tigermilk for the whispers of vocals and the folky feel; Kaleidescope for Siouxsie's killer voice and the powerful songwriting; Notorious K.I.M to satisfy my need for booty shaking and trashy, feminist-induced lyrics; and Hatful of Hollow, because it's just damn good.
TROUBLE SAYS: Hello Jonathan. I have such an eclectic taste in music I would probably bring 5 of my mixed CD's - They hold every- thing from Siouxsie & The Banshees, Snoop Dogg, Sarah Brightman, U2, Deftones, American Head Charge, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Elvis, Led Zeppelin, ....the list could go on and on.
If I had to pick actual CD's they would be 1) Deftones -White Pony 2) Siouxsie & The Banshee's -A Kiss in The Dreamhouse 3) Sarah Brightman -Classics 4) Black Crowe's -Shake your Money Maker 5) A mixed CD :)
Hope all is going well for you!!! Take Care, Trouble

Toto - Past to present Guilty Pleasure. The musicians on this CD are...Phenominal, such good songwriting. Songs that make you want to do something with yer life.
Guns N Roses - Use Your Illusion 1 & 2 Their best album I think. Such amazing musicians again, and I idolize these guys. They rock. (Full stop exclamation mark).
Chinapples- EP Lol. My cousin, such punkyfunky music. Shit-kicking music lol. Something to make me laugh and dance to. We all need a smile.
BILLIE SAYS: Hi mate! Can I really only be 5 CDs? BUGGER! Ok, here goes a feeble attempt at reducing my favs to that of only 5.
1. Jeff Buckley - I LOVE Jeff, the man was an enigma who was clearly way ahead of his time. Why is it people only ever pay attention to something that was great at the time when they die? It's when they die tragically that people take notice of what was infront of them. I've listened to the Grace album almost a million times and it's never failed to evoke emotions or please me aurally. 2. MCRBlack Parade - Cause it's only just come out and I have been waiting MONTHS for it's release. These guys have come a long way from when they first began. Their music has evolved, their image has evolved and now what we have is the near finished product. They've become somewhat upgradeable. I likey, I likey, I likey alot.
3. Billy Idol - Why? because the man's got attitude, and it'll help with the solitude. Throughout my whole life I've had CD's come and go which I have not replaced. There are some things that are replaceable with carbon copies. Billy Idol is definitely UNREPLACEABLE. I am reasurred in the knowledge that I'll have Billy to rock to while pumping my fists wildly into the air.
4. Chris Cornell - Another musical genius. Enough said. Ps: his version of Ave Maria is edgy but still beautiful.
5. The Cult - There's no reason for taking these guys. They're just one of my favs ever.
There you have it Jonathan, I've managed to actually complete another one of your Q's. LOL x's and o's
LARRY SAYS: 1. Pink Floyd - "Dark Side Of The Moon" - I can still listen to this album twenty years later over and over. 2. Pink Floyd - "Animals" - same thing here. 3. Led Zeppelin - "Song Remains The Same Soundtrack" - Just an amazing listening experience for me. 4. Mighty Lemon Drops - "Laughter" - This CD makes me feel good 5. Primus - "Sailing The Seas Of Cheese" - even on an island, I need to hear bass and feel wierd. This album does that for me. November 8 Tara Reid A familar face ay? Yep.

NATALIE SAYS: Hello! Well, it'd have to be The Doors, Led Zep, Melanie Safka, Guns 'N Roses, and Johnny Cash!
I listen to these over and over all the time. I just love the 70's and 80's sound of bands like The Doors and Led Zep. Especially the 70's when music seemed to mean something to the people playing it and the ones who were buying it!

Def Leppard - Pyromania. 2 words; Guitar riffs. I literally could not survive without it.
The Gits - Enter: the Conquering Chicken. Mia Zapata had the most amazing voice I have ever heard, right next to Janis Joplin. Her lyrics hit close to home. I could listen to her voice in any format or any song for days on end.
KISS - KISS. It's KISS! What more do I need to say?!

Q of THE WEEK: "FEAR OF FLYING" *Ends today (scroll down for all responses)
TRACY SAYS: Flying is not fun!!!! I have never flown anywhere.
I'd rather go by car or boat. If your boat sinks you've got a chance, well as long as you can swim!!!!!! With a plane crash your only way is down, down, down!!! There's no way I would ever ever get on a plane. Love Tracy xx
SHAWN SAYS:Flying during the holidays can rule and suck. One, you get stuck flying with people who are toting everything from skis, presents, boxes, crying babies...crying husbands and wives...crying old ladies.
Second...your chances of getting snowed in at some random international airport, such as, oh I don't know...Denver...are right at about 80%...and spending Christmas Eve night snowed in with 50 other stranded, tired, pissy, grinches would completely suck jingle balls.
Third...who can afford a $500 ticket to fly roundtrip from Phoenix to Albuquerque...ha.
On the brighter side...there's nothing more rewarding then walking off a plane, hopping in a car with your grandmother who you haven't seen in a year...heading to your home where there's a hot fire burning in the fireplace, beans and green chile on the stove, and a big pine tree with all the decorations you made when you were a kid hanging like icicles off each little branch.
Merry Christmas and all that jazz...but personally, Halloween kicks it in the ass!
MONIKA SAYS: Normally, I wouldnt mind flying, but after the crappy flight my best friend Annette just had with her flight (from Corpus Christi Texas to Spokane, then Spokane, Washington to Seattle, Wash- ington then home to Corpus), I'm not sure if I have the patience!!
Not only did her plane have trouble with its landing gear on its way up to Spokane, then she gets laid over for 1 1/2 hours in Spokane to Seattle cause the engine wasn't working on the other plane.
Thats not the end of it. 2 days later, she was on her way home to Texas and got stuck in the middle of the huge storms they had there. Flew over where she was going (Corpus Christi, Texas) 2 times from San Antonio, where she was to leave her plane to get back to Corpus Christi. (so the planes were basically 'following' the storm now).
Then back to Austin, where they had a long lay over there...then back to Corpus Christi AGAIN!! The plane was to LAND in San Antonio at 4:30 pm. They got to Corpus at 12:00 am!!
She finally just said "To hell with you, I'll get my stuff tomorrow, I'm gettin' the f**k off this plane NOW!"
So, ya, flyin' doesn't sound too appealin' to me. I'm suppose to go to Texas at Christmas...umm, not sure if I'm goin' or not!!

Q of THE WEEK: "FEAR OF FLYING" (scroll down for all the responses)
BILLIE SAYS: Hey Jonathan. Yikes, I haven't done this in a while huh? Let's see, flying during the holidays. I haven't really flown anywhere during the holiday season in the last 10 years or so.
But I do remember one year my whole family flew back to the islands for a two month holiday. That was some good times right there, it wasn't so bad I guess. Airplane food wasn't really fit for human consumption back then, if I remember correctly it was more suited for the bin.
I have this insane fear of flying, so I really have no idea how I'm going to handle a 12-hour flight to LA. Nothing a few sleeping pills won't fix huh? When we flew to the islands I was ok, back in those days air disasters were rare. These days it seems you have to pick and choose which air service you think will be safest and hope for the best.
A good friend of mine dated a air hostess a few months back. The horror stories! For instance (this happens alot apparently) there have been known occasions where one of the wings engines would stop. That's only one of the things you DON'T hear about when your onboard in high altitude.
Can't quite remember the others, I was trying to overcome my fear of flying. Until that. They say you run a higher risk of being hit by a bus than airplane disaster. Guess that's something we're not too sure about.
VERA SAYS: Have only ever been in a plane twice in my life up until recently! Alot of people I know find that very hard to believe, but it is true!
Sadly lost a very good friend/promoter(only 23-years young) this year to a brain haemaorage! Just before he died, he organised a Charity SkyDive for Male Cancer, which we very reluctanly signed up. He died in July, we jumped in August!
That soon sorted out any fear of flying in the future. Was the most amazing and life changing experience I have ever had, so much so,
I am going back for seconds and organising another skydive for charity in Easter next year!
R.I.PPaul from The OOPS Crew (London UK)...so sorely missed, but never forgotten.
TERRI SAYS: Interesting question. I have no fear of flying at all.
I've flown a few times in my life. I like the view from planes and some airport approaches are beautiful.
My time will come when it is right, and I'm not going to let fear stop me from doing things.
I am not going abroad this year. So, no planes.
November 1 Toni Collette Toni, born in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia in 1972 is one those actresse's that changes looks, hair, weight, ect. more thany any I can think of. She is a in- credible rising star that is wildly diverse in her roles. Starred as Sonya in the Sy- dney Theatre Company's 1992 Production of Anton Chekhov's "Uncle Vanya". Dropped out of Australia's NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Arts) in order to make her first film Spotswood (1992). Nominated for a 2000 Tony Award for her \performance as "Queenie" in Michael John LaChiusa's musical "The Wild Party" on Broadway. Gained 40 pounds in 7 weeks for Muriel's Wedding (1994) with the help of a dietitian. Though she vowed not to gain any more weight for movie roles, director Curtis Hanson convinced her to gain twenty-five pounds for her role in In Her Shoes (2005). She believed it was important to her character's personality. Personal quote (IMDb): "I'm an actor not a movie star. I prefer it that way. I think when you watch big stars on screen; it's really difficult to look beyond that very fa- miliar persona. As an actor, you can play different characters and not be recognized. I know I've got parts that other bigger, more famous actors wanted. I think in some cases their fame is a hindrance because they're too identifiable."

NIKKI SAYS: Flying is a pain in the ass. (Not that a brisk gov- ernament sanctioned body cavity search isn't a blast with TSA ...but um...uh...yeah.)
Flying around the holiday season is nightmare. Last year, they lost my luggage and cancelled the last leg of a flight for me, so I ended up driving for five hours after having flown for about seven hours. Not good.
I'm glad the security measures have been put in place. Now if only they could come out with some Valium vending machines next to all those damn Starbucks...I'd be set!!
SPIDERBABY SAYS: I am not afraid of flying. Been doing it since I was 7 years old. I do find it more of a pain in the ass to fly since 9-11, though.
I realize that there has to be stricter screening processes, but some of the stuff is ridiculous. Especially since they don't seem to give you enough time between connecting flights in the first place.
Coming back from Cancun last year was a nightmare.
Don't plan on flying this winter, but that could change at any given time.
NICOLE SAYS: It's ok. I flew to Italy to see my family. It's quite restricted. I had to throw away my bottle of water just in case it was chemical's and I was a terrorist!! (I was drinking from it!)
And, a lady travelling on the same plane had £60 worth of make up taken away, again in case it was explosives. It's quite sad that it's come that far but I understand that it is better to be safe than sorry. Nothing will stop me visiting my family though, and I still get a buzz taking off. :)
October 31 Happy Halloween Deidre Hall The well known soap actress was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1947. She has emerged as one of America's most beloved actresses, who delighted her fans in August 1991, when she returned to NBC-tv's number one daytime program "Days of Our Lives" (1965). Hall created the role of 'Dr Marlena Evans' in 1976, a character whose popularity has created a furor and a fan following seldom seen in television. The favorable regard in wich Hall is held has spanned all demographics and regions. She was named Best Television Role Model; won the prestigious America Women in Radio and Television (AWRT) award in 1994; garnered five Best Actress awards from Soap Opera Digest (1982-85,1995), and broke new ground for daytime stars when she guested on shows such as "The Tonight Show", "Night of a Hundred Stars", and "20/20" at the birth of her surrogate son. Recognizing her continuing appeal, in 1990, the Hallmark Co. chose Hall as celebrity spokesperson for a new card line called, "To Kids with Love". The following spring, Deidre became the sole spokesperson for Dex- atrim. Deidre's elegant fashion statements have not gone unnoticed in the press. Twice naming her the "Best Dressed Woman", she was also named one of America's ten most beautiful women by TV Guide and Satellite Orbit. Hall has graced the covers of national and regional magazines such as People, Woman, Woman´s Own, TV Guide, Woman's World, McCalls, Family Circle, Shape, Los Angeles Magazine, Beverly Hills (213), Orange Coast and First for Women.

JULIE SAYS: No fun at all, just a major hassle. All just middle of the road experiences 'fraid, just a pain in the ass to get to where you wanna get to!! I'm going to Tenerife in a few weeks, then Greece in December.
GLITTER SAYS: I Love flying 'cause it makes the time go by so much faster.
Driving and traffic just plain right out sucks. I always have to sit by the window and sleep the whole time though.
I get jet lag really bad, and that is bad but all in all it is pretty kewl.
I have a steel plate in my neck so when I go to the airport I always get ready to be stripped searched and my luggage is always the one to get picked for the whole world to see that I just threw my shit in my bag and left. haha.
My brother lives in Michigan and I like to see him every six months so I fly often. Not only that, my family is in San Antonio and I live in Dallas so yeah you could say I am a frequent flyer.
But here goes to all the strip searches. Just have another Jaeger shot...lol...haha
SHARLA SAYS: Ummm...interesting that you would ask ME this question...because I am TERRIFIED of flying!
Haven't flown in 14 years. I know...I need to get over it. Just haven't yet.
So, I will NOT be flying for any of the above holidays...and I'll just use the excuse that it just isn't "safe" right now! :-)
JONATHAN: Sharla, what happens if the band gets booked in New York? Gonna drive. ;-)
