theurge14: unlikely: The bonus is 1982 Jane Wiedlin (the guitarist on screen at 02:16). She was up there with the bass player from the Bangles in the "rock and roll dreams" department.

I still would.

Is that a sharpie on the desk in front of her? I wonder if she just finished drawing her eyebrows on.

Your version seems to have some opaque material spread across it.

ristst: I recently saw an interview with Jane, and she seemed to have some kind of facial tick happening.

It's a well know fact that massive cocaine abuse can cause problems with muscle control. Wonder if she's still using the stuff? Or does she have some other medical issue that would cause this?

The bug guy from Men in Black 1 comes to mind.

Gordon Bennett: chaos731: Jane = goddess.

Oh yes. She was the Bailey Quarters of the Go-Gos.

An excellent reference, complete with the "which one looks better" inference.

Clear the floor, I've got the CSB covered here:

I was playing a music festival out in LA. After a couple of shows. we went into town to Jack's Sugar Shack on Vine near Hollywood because a couple of bands we were friends with were playing there. In between the two bands we knew was a band fronted by two chicks. I thought they were really good, so I approached the lead singer.

She introduced herself as Kathy and offered me a beer. She seemed more interested in my band and how we were enjoying LA. After a while, she introduced by to the Bass Player. "This is my friend, Gina. Gina introduced herself, "Gina Shock."


Holy shiat, I fell like the biggest rube that fell off turnip truck. It was two of the freaking GoGos and I was the only one in the room that didn't realize it. With normal instead of stupid 80s hair, she was quite smoking. "Well, I guess you know now I wasn't just ass-kissing you."

She continued to fill me with her GoGo Juice and she was so nice. When it was time to go, I went to Kathy do say good bye. She gave me a hug, so I decided to go for a kiss. She seemed to like that so I went in for the full-on snog Just then my brother yelled at me, "It's time to GO!" We looked at each other furtively for like a half second then with the same look of disappointment like "this ain't happening."

And I was whisked from my sweet GoGo forever.

D Ray Morton: Not bad. Who plays their instruments for them?

Gina Shock, Charlotte Caffey and Kathy Valentine need people to play instruments for them?

You don't really ... know much about music, do you?
