Favorite Song from…

August 28, 2009

I don’t wanna be a douche bag DJ and ask you all the same questions but I am and I will.

Now playing: Tim Virgin with Jared of Kings of Leon at Lollapalooza ’09
via FoxyTunes

A Whiskey Missus Quote:
Beer for breakfast does have some unfortunate side effects. Believing you can drum with air sticks, for one:


And might I say OH MAH GAH…


Nacho, guitar/mirror tech

August 1, 2009




Caleb: Dude, I told you to only ever bring me the gilded mirror!

Nacho: Sorry, I couldn’t find it in your makeup bag. You’ve got like 10 bronzer compacts.

Caleb: Hey Man, these spray on tans don’t last forever ya know.

Nacho: Dude you are such a pussy right now.

Caleb: Thanks Bro

Caleb to Reflection: Focus Caleb, Focus! This is the big time…Matt and Al are watching…you can do it buddy!!!

…and let the show begin.

A comment from Christina: I had nothing to do with this dialogue, it completely wrote itself.

Michelangelo's Nathan

F*ck David! Now this is a Masterpiece!

Michelangelo's Nathan

Michelangelo's Nathan

I truly feel this may not only  be one of my best pieces of work
but also an all time low for me. Yes, I admit it,
Houston we have a problem.
I’ll beat all of you to it…I have way to much time on my hands.
Oh Well…even with a bad perm Guns McDraw is a hotty.

It’s like a decapitation…It’s impossible to look away, the horror!

you will be missed

you will be missed

It was a brave death my friend. You may be gone but you will live eternally through the music. Rock On!

R I P Gibson

July 10, 2009

Apparently Caleb ended the life of his beloved Gibson at T in the Park.
May you rest in peace Geetar and may you finally get the girl in your next life.

Oh and let’s not forget the Drum. Kind of getting the Farrah Fawcett short end of the recognition stick.

RIP to you too!

They say death comes in 3’s, Matthew take note! At least Jared has more then one Bass.


Thanks for being so patient people! It was quite a project, over 500 albums were submitted. ALL have been counted and organized and the results are in. I think it’s safe to say Kings of Leon fans have excellent taste!

top 10 album covers flt

Some of you inquired about the top 10 song list I previously asked you to contribute to. I am taking another route and letting WordPress and Poll Daddy do the work for me. If you vote on the poll that I posted recently I will conclude your top songs once I post all the KOL albums and their songs. It is just way too time consuming for me to list, organize, calculate and post all that on my own.
Stay Tuned!


All great fun but I couldn’t help be reminded how out of touch I am with the TV and movie world. My various unhealthy addictions to social media and longhaired rock stars leaves no time and I’m thinking maybe that’s a good thing. Regardless, there were really funny moments and totally lame moments so lets recap shall we?

What is the appeal of RPattz? Does anyone else see the resemblance to a man hit in the face by a frying pan? His head seems incredibly large to me as well, and I’m not talking as a metaphor for his ego, I’m talking literally. Is it true vampires cannot see there own reflections in a mirror?

Leanne Rimes singing Jizz in my pants? What!!! Perfect casting!!! Keyboard Cat? Genius! Screw Eminem, Keyboard cat would’ve been better.

Explosions, great but the addition of JJ Abrahams on Keyboard solo, oh the irony…and a performance a lot less dorky then you would think.

The popcorn head guys in the gold unitards were disturbing, who was the fey that came up with that idea? How cool was Bruno with his freakishly funny boundary pushing, incredibly uncomfortable yet sidesplitting antics? Love it! Aww, his poor ball-sack, but how appropriate he landed on Vanilla Ice who could hook him up with Ice Ice Baby…right?!

I think Kristen Stewart should take a note from Ashley Tisdale and Sandra Bullock’s excellent choice in footwear! Those puppies rocked! Gorgeous and sexy with a touch of sluttiness…kudos to both of you ladies, you looked fabulous.

Kiefer Sutherland, stick to drama. Jim Carrey, Prop 8 joke good, Swine Flu joke bad. Catherine Hardwicke what the hell were you wearing, all that outfit said was, “had to go commando.”

I would like to reflect a little on Zac. First off I would like to apologize for not giving him a chance. I admit I wrongly judged him because of his performance in HSM (which I never saw). But, I have come to the conclusion that he is freaking adorable and if I were 3 years younger…oh boy! Although I wish someone had lent him their mirror cause the hair in his eyes was driving me crazy.

I was able to catch the Kings performance before the live stream cut out on me, which of course they rocked. Caleb looked like he was having fun and I must say I LOVED his outfit. So much better then his DAD sweater. It looked like he stepped away from the swimmer killers he usually wears and pulled out a roomier pair of pants. I thought they looked great, they gave him “some what” of an ass. I’m all about the ass. I love a nice ass. Did I mention his ass? The beard is prrrrrfect. As I reflect on Jared’s performance (and by performance I mean his hotness) this evening, I have to say I absolutely love the Chace Efron look. It’ s much better then the RPattz look he use to be sporting. Matt rocked the guitar as usual and Thank God Nathan left the sleeves at home. I was disappointed I didn’t get to see what the ladies wore but maybe we’ll see pictures later. I’m sure they did not disappoint.

Well all in all it was a great promotional “Twilight: New Moon” 2 hour long commercial and I think that Andy Samberg did a great job. I’m sure they are all off having a fabulous Hollywood time but I’m off to bed and quite content at home with my real boobs, my tanless body and my live cat to write my little tales and my little clue games.

(This is a repost of a post I wrote many years ago about Deb Charlton who died this past Wednesday. I thought I’d share it one more time.)

I have been a music fan my whole life but growing up the bigger the star the more likely you and your friends would both be fans. Never was there any kind of music connection as there is today. Back then if you liked country you were probably southern, if you liked rock and roll you were probably a teenager, if you liked R&B you were probably black, and if you liked Bruce you were probably from New Jersey. There were no indie bands or indie stations there was not much diversity at all. I think one of the smartest things that bands like Pearl Jam and KOL have done is to include these social networks onto their websites.

I first went on to the KOL site before the MSG concert. I perused the site and contributed to the blogs and quickly made friends. As we all know it’s taken us Yanks awhile to catch onto the greatness of the Kings. The really cool thing about that is the amazing friends I have made from across the pond. This brings me to why I’m writing you this story; to tell you about my dear friend Deborah Charlton.

Debs was one of the very first people I connected with, she praised me for my funny stories and loved my play-by-play commentary about the MSG show. She explained that due to a liver condition she was in a wheelchair and if she could she would attach a jetpack to the back of her chair so she could hover over the stage while the band played. I instantly loved her after playing that visual in my head. My kinda gal. We quickly became friends and have pretty much spoken via the Internet every day since.

Debs is a single mother of a beautiful 11yr old named Amber. Deb had a liver transplant a few years back but it has since failed and she awaits another to be available. She recently started taking shots that help reduce the swelling of her organs so she can breathe properly and be strong enough to receive a second transplant. From what I understand, the shots are equivalent to Chemo and leave Deb very ill. She isn’t having much luck with the shots. She feels they aren’t working and have more of a negative result for her.

Debs was recently selected by the Willow Foundation to receive a special occasion of her choosing. This is much like the Make A Wish Foundation who grants wishes to the terminally ill, an organization probably more familiar with Americans. Deborah has chosen to see the Kings of Leon at the O2 on the 30th of June. I don’t think there’s anything else I need to say about how big of a fan she is after writing that.

The dress has been purchased and the new red shoes have been described in perfect detail to her KOL friends, and I have no doubt we are all just as excited for her as she is for herself. There is no one who deserves this more then Debs. She truly is the sweetest, kindest, most positive and freakishly funny people I have ever known. Many nights have been spent up late; me due to insomnia she because the morphine makes her wired; doubled over with laughter unable to complete a sentence. The next day I would always receive an email from my precious friend thanking me for our late night gabs that made her feel better. How she’s able to make me feel so special when she is going through so much pain is amazing.

Deb has found much strength and love among the KOL community and I truly feel her love for the music and the friends she has made have kept her going. We need Deb to be strong and get through this tough time so she becomes well enough to even receive the liver she so greatly needs. All I ask of you is to pray pray pray. Whatever you believe or not believe we need to send positive words and thoughts her way. Believe me, when I tell you this is a special person. If you ever meet her or talk to her online you are truly lucky. My wish for Debbie is to be standing at the concert with her daughter by her side dancing away in her red shoes and sexy denim dress looking as beautiful on the outside as she is on the inside with nothing but a bright and healthy future with many many concerts ahead of her.

Please leave Debbie a comment here, on the KOL site, her facebook page, or twitter.

Thank you!

Debs friend Christina

xoxo xoxo

Kings of Menudo

April 29, 2009

After just 2 months back from their year long tour for OBTN, Kings of Leon are eager to get back into the studio to cut another record. Always ready for a new challenge and spicing up their music by new inspirations, KOL took the word spice literally. Check out their new cutting edge image and you will definitely get a sense of what the music will sound like. Yo Vengo Yo Vengo!!!

Kings of Menudo

5 minute commute to the stadium but stupid fuck here forgot her cash and God forbid the stadium parking lots upgrade to that crazy modern technology called Credit Card Machines.

My seats are not so bad; I’m on J Rod side kinda in the middle on the end. I am a walking audio-visual geek armed with my phone, my flip video camera and my digital camera. I am also wearing glasses that are not strong enough but look cool. I’m also wearing what I affectionately call my Sally Jessie Raphael’s that I bought at the dollar store. Basically they are equal to the planetarium telescope as far as magnification is concerned. I love them, but I look like a 5-year-old Jared Followill, sans white dinner coat. And do I have both pair on my head at the same time? Why yes I do, thank you very much.

Stream of Consciousness

Watchmen on, Nathan was right they are awesome.
This is my kind of music.

There are 20 musicians on the stage. Looks like half of them keep wandering on and off the stage. Interesting concept.

The lead singer is tall as hell; HE’s probably 6’2. They kinda look like frat boys.
No tight jeans.

Here comes some random dude again. The triangle player, wonder if he gets any chic’s with that as his instrument; and what about the groupie who sleeps with him at the end of the night? What is that conversation with your friends like?

Oh my God, I totally hooked up with a dude in the band!
Oh yeah? The drummer?
Umm, no the triangle player.

OK update on the wondering musicians. Turns out they are the horn section, and the triangle player is also in the horn section. Phew!

Major drunk girl sitting behind me! This could definitely be worse then the tool kit from the MSG concert. F-bomb in a high pitch squeal with a Philly accent is like nails on a chalkboard. NOTE TO SELF: Stop saying fuck in public so much and be conscious of saying YES and not YEEH. This chick makes me want to be a better woman.

Horns are amazing! Watchmen are rocking. Seriously, I love it when a band makes me say hmm, must hear more. The lead singer has a great voice and the music sounds awesome.

Gah!!! It’s the Walkmen!!!! I never get it right. It’s the Yogi Berra in me. Sorry guys u rock though, even if your not super heroes.

I wonder if they “rent out” the horn section for the gig, this band cannot be this big.

Really mixed crowd, young/old/gross/ not so gross/drunk/sober…

Dear God:
Please no tall Dudes in front of me this time? Thank you! Love you! Bye. Click. Dial tone (I am determined to make that joke work).

Walkman just held that note for a good 1 ½ minutes?!
What lungpower…wonder how long he can swim under water.

Very nice girl just sat down next to me…no doubt we will be BFFs by the end of the night. Happens every time. No one can resist my charm.

Horn section whistles too. Is that extra in the rental contract? Yes! The horn section is a rental from NYC and this is their last night with the Walkmen.

Walkmen have finished.

And the roadies take over. Man, they work fast. What is all the equipment I mean so much is involved with setting up. I wonder how it makes the band feel knowing how many people depend on them for their own careers. I don’t really know how it works but really it as a reflection on their success as musicians. If you look at it on a business level it is amazing! All the way down to those assholes in the parking lot that don’t take credit cards. Does this affect their decisions as a band? That’s a lot to carry on your shoulders.

It looks like all the Flyers fans came straight from the game over to the concert. They are all wearing their bright orange t-shirt. Thank God I chose not to wear the orange hunting vest. Caleb’s poor guitar would be so confused and have a hard time finding me.

Even some of the roadies wear skinny jeans!

I swear I keep thinking I gotta pee then when I go it’s not even enough for a drug test. IGNORE THE URGE CHRISTINA! I wonder what happens if one of the guys has to go? Is it like the puke thing and they go in a bucket? These are the types of questions I would ask if I were to interview them for Rolling Stone magazine. Oy, so sick of the canned question/answer shit I keep reading over and over. Pee breaks, the people need to know!

It is 9:01. Heads up peeps, the zoom on my flip sucks.

Jared has a new guitar, black. That’s all I can tell u about it. It’s black and its cool. It looks just like the white one but its black. Hey man, I know my guitar shit what can I say.

What is up with Philly chicks? Cover the fuck up! Am I old? There is way too much cleavage in this joint and not good cleavage. It just looks slutty…and fake…and cold…I mean come on, the girls who are like 2pds and have huge fakers look like they’re gonna tip over at any second. Not even an ass as a counter-weight. Bring back the 70s real boobs no bras. Speaking of that whatever happened to Nathan’s pink drum kit? It was so cool and it always reminded me to do my monthly breast exams.

Are my jokes too obscure? Does anyone get them? Fuck it. I’m all ROFLOL over my bad self.

Lights down…getting so excited!!!!

Ugh, obstructed Jumbotron again…WTF?
Hot Dude Alert: 3 rows down…oh no, he’s wearing PINK underwear. To me that say’s “I have a secret!” Drums yes, undies no.

There are major amounts of duct tape used by the roadies. If they run out I have plenty in my trunk.

Oh, drunk girl you are like Katherine Hepburn in A Philadelphia Story, a class act.
A fight just broke out in the GA section! I just saw some girl flailing her arms around. Girl fight? Oh God. Here comes security. The crowd is pointing out the instigator to the guards. You’ve been thrown under the bus dude! He is now being escorted out. Did that girl fight him? That’s hysterical.

One of the stadiums has or had a jail and a court, but I can’t remember which one.

And cue the church music!

Here they come!!!

Matt is wearing a vest. Apparently vests are very popular with the ladies and they will all be happy to hear he is wearing one.

Oh this just sounds awesome!!!!

Taper Jean Girl
Trying to take video, I have a clear view. The girl in front of me is like 4’9”. Caleb height.

My Party
Can we trade that in for McFearless? No?

Molly’s Chambers

Red Morning Light
Oh sweet! Didn’t expect that. This crowd seems to know the older stuff, where as the MSG crowd not so much. Everyone is buying all their older albums now I guess. I became a fan at BOTT and did the same thing. I think Aha Shake is my fav. But Fans and bucket LOVE those songs.

California Waiting
Harsh light in my eyes, I am now blind.

Yay!!! Crowd Loves this!

Finally the smell of Pot where the hell has that been? I was starting to wonder? Oh wait, don’t think it’s the crowd…nope…its Nathan.

Another one I love.

(I will punch drunk girl and then be escorted out, but it will be worth it).

Ah yes, I ordered up this one special for my gals. You know who u are ; )

Hmm Caleb just gave himself a little chest rub, OK. Well it looked like that from here.

Caleb says a few words. Says he’s impressed by the crowd and hopes they sing along. Which means…

Sex on Fire
Zzzzzz…My new bff Natalie and I are in agreement this is not our favorite. So we chat.
Philly folk are enjoying it, fun to watch.

Geek boys in the row in front of me are rubbing each other’s bald spots. True fact.


I requested some ass wiggles and he ain’t delivering. But the jeans are nice and tight. So damn tight I would say the man is a boxer-brief dude maybe? Hmmm. He’s got some big ass feet too, at least in those boots.

This is the very first song of theirs I heard on the radio. Perk my head up moment. Sold!

Another fight?! This time it’s right next to me. The guard is screaming at the guy. I missed the whole thing. He’s not getting kicked out though, just a verbal ass-whoop.

Cold Desert
Matt sure knows how to make that song sound purdy. Damn he is good. The best thing those brothers ever did was kidnap him from Oklahoma.

Caleb thanks the Walkmen.

Use Somebody
Ugh guy in front of me keeps bending down to talk to his incredibly short girlfriend and obstructing my view. I knew there would be a catch. He’s like 6’2”ft. Caleb’s wishful thinking height.

Does Jared realize the audience is behind him? He spends the whole time facing the amps. Is there a mirror attached to them or something?

Slow Night So Long
Matt is gonna need some Tylenol tonight. Major head banging.

Oh no! drunk girl just fell and tried to bring my pants with her!!! How come I get accosted at all the KOL shows I go to? Well 2, but whatever.

Natalie and I chat before the encore. She is a super fan much like me and it turns out she reads my blog! She went to MSG too. We both agree this concert definitely has a better crowd.

Some royally stoned girl next to her tries to speak to me, but I have no idea what she’s saying. I just nod and smile.



Caleb is trying to say something to the crowd but everyone is freaking out. He stops and laughs then continues. Humble words much like MSG.


Does this song have a name yet?

Oh I love this song!!! My last shot at seeing an ass wiggle. Matt plays the shit out of this song. I think I’m having a religious experience. Seriously, he can play. His abilities are best described in my very first article about KOL, titled Kings of Leon; you can find it on my blog. I’m in heaven. No lie it’s like we just made out!

No ass wiggle WTF…oh Caleb…how could you. My horny heart is broken.

And that’s it they wave good-bye! I’m sad…its over.

Its like Christmas morning, you anticipate the day for so long. Each song is like a gift that you eagerly want to open or hear in this case. You are so excited but before you know it all the gifts are open; all the songs are played and that special day is over. I will watch the video over and over but it’s never the same as being in the moment. Hopefully, they will return and I will still believe and never lose that feeling of excitement and anticipation. I’m off to call my friends much like I did when I was little, and tell them all about the wonderful gift the boys brought to my hometown.

Thank you, Thank you…you are blessed and loved!

Dear Ladies:

As a complimentary service for your visit to our fair city while you are on tour with your fella’s, we’d like to offer you an exclusive 99% off shopping spree on the day of the concert. We offer this service to all the spouses of our visiting bands.

You will be escorted from your hotel room to an undisclosed location ( for security purposes of course) where you will find a warehouse filled with the finest of apparel, accessories and jewels all by high end designers such as Gucci, Dior, Loubitoun…OH the list will go on (once I look up some top designer names) Stella McCartney (that’s a good one right?) It’s my understanding if you put copy in Cyan blue Rock Star girlfriends can’t read it, I don’t know why I think it has to do with interviews and their fella’s not wanting them to read some stuff, goes for their parents and their kids as well.)

All we ask of you is that you leave your belongings at the front gate with our security guard. That would include the keys to your hotel room, tour bus, houses, farms, cars, etc…(again, for security purposes of course). Get Kirby groomed, apparently one of them thinks he’s twitter follow worthy and he should be a good distraction for a couple of hours.

Spend the evening shopping, take ALL the time you want. No rush, really, long into the next day if you’d like! note to self; remove all “made in China” stickers from knock offs. Make sure Granny gets started on those fake tags. Double up her arthritis meds for the week. You will have access to the finest of apparel and accessories before they go in stores. Remember to spray paint bottom of heels Red for an authentic Loubiton look at least 2 days ahead, don’t want anyone leaving red foot marks and sticking to the floor like Bono’s wife did last time. And fucking learn how to spell LOUBITON!!!

We will also be serving dinner in our private dining area off the loading dock  with cuisine from one of Philadelphia’s finest french eating establishments. Remember to order a platter from Chik-fil-a. Also get a couple of boxes of Riunite.

We hope your stay in our city is comfortable and pleasent and feel free to contact us if you have any special requests.

Thank you ladies!


Your Philadelphia Welcoming Committee

Dear Jared:

I don’t usually like to post random pictures on my blog. I would like to try to keep this blog filled with interesting stories or pictures with humorous captions much like the one with Nathan’s guns, and that pic of you and Matt which was so damn cute. So as I was saying, unrelated pictures to a specific topic won’t be found in here…..

until I saw THIS!!!!




What the hell are you trying to do to me? I have resisted for years due to the fact I am old enough to be your very very very young Aunt but now you’ve just gone too far! Seriously baby Followill you need to wear that EVERY DAY or not wear that as the case may be!

Listen, we are in a recession and you need to do your little part to help out with the nations economic struggle. How you ask?

1. By bringing joy to the lives of the poor struggling ladies of the world, no matter how young (within legal limits) or how old (seriously, my mother saw this and her exact words were “WHOA!”) via bejeweled bare chested vest wearing pictures such as this.

2. Starting the shirtless  trend which no doubt J2mff wannabe’s will be copying the look thus saving cash on shirt purchases.

3. And last but not least the market will be flooded with gold necklace purchases which will then flood cash into the economy driving down the cost of precious metal in turn driving up stocks which will then stabilize the economy and all will be well with the world.

See Jacob? That’s all you need to do. You’re like a HOT Alan Greenspan. Fate is in your hands my friend.

hugs and kisses, baby!


is the contest over? I have a last minute entry!!!

I call it Ode to “J to the mother fuckin F”
(could also work as a vanity plate)


Oh hello! What’s your name? Smith?

Nice to meet you Smith. Enjoy the show…


…and you? What’s your Name? Wesson?

Hello Wesson, are you two twins?

Open Letter to Kings of Leon

February 24, 2009

Dear Fella’s:

I would like to preface what I am about to say with the following; everything I write about is all in jest and I have the utmost respect for you as musician. It really is all about the quality and originality of the music you produce and by no means has anything to do with Nathan and his charming sense of humor, blue eyes, black wavy hair, tight jeans, sexy lips, square jaw or hairy chest. I am just trying to share my appreciation for your talent and the man…. I mean “the band.”

In the past several months I have been writing these darling little tales about you and my love for your music and have developed a bit of my own fan base. I thank you for being an inspiration to me and letting me ride on your coattails, but there is an issue that needs to be addressed. Every day I check my blog activity; I write for a few online sites and keeping up with the stats is all a part of a days work as I’m sure you are well aware. One issue I have come across is the huge majority of people who want to know how tall you are. Seriously, 9 out of 10 search engine results that bring me the most traffic is “How tall is Nathan, Caleb, Jared, Matthew…Nathan,” basically after the word “tall” just insert your favorite Followill….hmmm… what?!…oh.

Guys, come on! This is very important stuff the world wants to know. It is seriously the #1 search followed by Caleb Followill + Drugs, Caleb Followill + alcohol, Caleb Followill + Sex, Caleb Followill + STDs, and Caleb Followill + asshole (I’m sorry Caleb, that is really what they search for but I figure its all the HAer’s jealous boyfriends and maybe your brothers). Listen, you don’t have to write me back, just put the info in your wikipedia bio. I’m willing to sacrifice the blog hits for the inquiring minds.

And people just to give a guesstimate, I figure Caleb is probably about 6’2, so the other guys are a probably anywhere between 5’11 to 6’0. I think Nacho is probably the only short one which makes me think he may very well be a Roloff and not a Followill. Anyway, if you could do us all a solid and let us know that would be great…shoe size would be nice too….Nate, 13-14? Am I right??

hugs and kisses with tongue


This just in: I have it on good authority that Caleb Followill is actually 4’9″ those are some mighty high heels he wears to make up the difference.

very cheeky!

Top 10 Fav Rocker Guys,

February 14, 2009

I am not gonna lie looks have a lot to do with some of the choices here. Superficial? Yes but i figure sex appeal makes up about 25% of a good rocker. The other 75% are the chops that make them musicians. My theory is the combination of the two creates a true Rock Star.

rock-stars41. Nathan Followill – Kings of Leon – Drummer

My favorite band at the moment is Kings of Leon and although I am not a percussion afficionado I know what I like and he sounds damn good to me. Of course there’s the guns, the eyes, the hair…I mean damn look at the dude. We don’t get a true sense of what he can do vocally through his back up and harmony contributions, but rumor has it he has some major pipes. I hope we hear more of that in the future. Maybe a little duet with his gal Jessie?

2.Caleb Followill – Kings of Leon – Rhythm Guitar, Lead Singer
All the boxes are filled on the Rock Star check list when it comes to Caleb (she said in her best Casey Kasem impression). For me its all about the voice. It’s so unique and I just love the way he uses it. Caleb’s voice is definitely his best instrument. His lyrics are really great. I love the metaphors and the slang…Guitar Go Get Her…OMG! And of course he’s a sweet piece of eye candy. I’m a sucker for tall skinny dudes (I miss the long hair though).


3. Mick Jagger – Rolling Stones – Lead Singer

Oh Mick, I don’t know what it is? The energy? The hair? The ability to impregnate a woman while passing them by on the street? I don’t know but he’s like David Koresh or Charles Manson to me – I follow willingly.


4. Jonny Greenwood – Radiohead – multi-instrumentalist

Radiohead is my all time favorite band. Jonny, in my opinion is the most talented and just a master at all things instrumental. He is so creative and original and clearly a well educated musician who is not afraid to push the boundaries.


5. Robert Plant – Led Zepplin – Lead Singer

What a great voice this man has and incredibly sexy! I love watching the old videos of Led Zepplin in concert. “Kashmir” is my favorite song of theirs. The ultimate sex song, just put it on repeat and go at it.


6. Keith Richards – Rolling Stones – Guitarist

The bad boy. I love the story of when he got pissing drunk and passed out, and when he woke up the next day he realized he recorded what would later become Sympathy for the Devil. About 3 bars were recorded and the rest of the tape was of him snoring. My other favorite story is how a magazine had voted him the most likely musician to die in the next year, and that was in the 1960’s. It really does amaze me he is still alive. Clearly he’s held together by spit and whiskey.

7. Jim James – My Morning Jacket – Lead Singer – Guitarist

Otherwise known as my boyfriend…in my head…I just love him. He goes against all my usual attractions but there’s something about him I find appealing. Maybe he just hits on that little part of me that’s intrigued by the warm and cuddly safe place guy. He looks like he’d be a good spooner. Oh yes, the music…that’s why we are here right? He rocks ’nuff said.


8. Ian Astbury – The Cult – Lead Singer
Rain and She Sells Sanctuary; those are some awesome songs. Ian is holding up pretty well in his later years. I am kind of afraid to hear any of their new stuff though. I’d be heartbroken if it sucked.


9. Jimmy Page – The Yardbirds – Led Zepplin – Guitarists

Just much respect for a talented musician. And of course, bad boy, sexy, drug addled, skinny…do I need to go any further with this?


10. Justin Vernon – Bon Iver – Lead Singer – Multi-instrumentalist

I am going through a major Bon Iver obsession right now. They/he takes me to a very zen place. When I am feeling anxious he calms me. He’s like Xanax for the ears. I don’t advise taking Xanax and listening to Bon Iver at the same time; you run the risk of becoming a zombie.

This ain’t rocket science but I just love all things music and always look for a reason to write about the subject.  Please feel free to add to this list in the comments. I love to hear your opinions and welcome fresh music suggestions at all times. If you are on a groups street team, again feel free to share!

The Video’s have been added to my list of suggested songs. Caleb’s little ass wiggle at the end of Black Thumbnail has me rethinking my love for Nathan…..nah!!!!

Dear Caleb:
Honey, I just have one request and believe me I truly do love them. They are very cool and sexy. I have no doubt you take very good care of them. But darlin’, please. I mean they gotta be walking around the house at night by themselves at this point.
Don’t you think its time to retire the boots.

Seriously, haven’t you had them long enough?


CALEB: “Thank you England! If it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t have been able to afford these awesome new Prada boots. I bought them over there in the UK, you know…where Italy is?”

NATHAN:”Shit, this says its the Brit Awards, I thought it was the Academy awards.”

CALEB TO JARED: “Do you think they can tell I just used a darker shoe polish?”

JARED: “Who gives a shit, where the fuck is MY mic? Heads are gonna role! Thank God I found that speech in my jacket pocket left over from the Grammy’s.”

NATHAN: “Thanks Mom and Dad! Love You! BYE (click, dialtone)!”

NATHAN: “Thank you God! Love you! BYE! (click, dialtone)!”


CALEB: “I think I feel the Spanish Inquisiton coming on again….uh oh”

NATHAN: “Damn, Caleb!!!!”

LILY: “All over your new shoes!”

JARED: “They still smell better then the other ones”


NATHAN: “So this isn’t the Oscars and we didn’t win for best Home Movies? When does the next People Magazine Sexiest Man Alive issue come out? I need to get a jump start on that campaign.”

Sweet Jesus they are hot!!!! The boots…and the boys!
