I'm Goin Mobile

Heya loyal claimers, there won't be a post for Thursday or Friday, gotta hit the road to see The Who in Phoenix tonight. I'll try to get something up maybe on Friday, but don't count on it ok? I'll see ya Monday for sure. See ya next week!

Crush Of The Week: Famke Janssen

Famke Janssen has played a voluptuous "Bond" girl in "Goldeneye", a transgender femme fatale on the F/X show" Nip/Tuck," and super mutant Jean Grey in the "X-Men" trilogy, but this time she takes on her hardest role to date as she plays Totally Claimin's "Crush Of The Week!"

Why is she our Crush? Because she's an angel, an angel that appears in the newest ad for PETA's popular "Be an Angel for Animals" campaign. According to Famke, the easiest way to earn your angel wings is to spay or neuter your companion animal. Well, I'm sold. I'd do it this second if she were here right now wearing that outfit telling me to do so. Can you neuter goldfish? I am willing to learn.

You Want The Best?
You Got The Best! KISS!

KISS lives. Actually, to be honest, they'll never die, not as long as Gene "The Demon" Simmons has money to be made (and as a member of the loyal KISS Army, I say that with love).

It was announced recently that "KISS Comics Group" will launch its inaugural comic book entitled, "KISS 4K." Oh sure, as kids we all had the KISS comics rumored to be printed with the blood of the band members, but this one is different. "KISS 4K" will be the first KISS comic ever produced with involvement of the band themselves. Also, as with everything related to the band, it will be bigger and better than anything else out there. The "KISS 4K" comic will be available for the first time ever in an oversized $50 "Destroyer Edition" at the Wizard World Los Angeles Convention this March, and has the honor of being the biggest comic book ever produced, measuring 30 inches high by 18 inches wide. Look, you wanted the best? You got the best. Here are a look at the covers, and of course a look at the new incarnations of the band.

The comic will continue in an ongoing series starting up in May by writer Rcky Sprague and artist Kevin Crossley. Also, there will be an online KISS comic running in conjunction "KISS 4K" that will expand upon the continuity and story of the print version. So what is the comic all about? According to the KISS website, "the whole storyline, which is a twelve issue arc that branches off into other KISS storylines, goes from dimension to dimension and universe to universe as our friends at KISS have to save all the universes, or at least our very own while the others blow up along the way." No word on whether or not they have to meet the Phantom. Here's the trailer for the comic and for your consideration, a few lessons in Kiss-tory in the form of some MP3s.

Up Late With Stewie And Brian

Like most of you I watched the Oscars the other night, so more than likely you (like myself)didn't know that over on Fox, they were aggressively plugging the upcoming premier of "The Winner." The series is from the creators of "Family Guy," and stars "The Daily Show's" Rob Corddry. During the spots, they also promoted "Up Late With Stewie And Brian," Stewie's late night talk show available exclusively online. If you haven't seen it, you can here. Enjoy ya claimers.

Under The Sea With My Morning Jacket

A question a lot of people get asked but always have a hard time answering is "What makes you love (insert band name here)?" The obvious answer is because you like the way they sound, but what really makes you truly love a band? What sets them apart? For me, it's the way the Flaming Lips put on a show, the way Phish can noodle for a half hour without ever getting boring, or a Black Crowes impromptu jam on a Bob Marley tune, or the passion Pearl Jam displays day in and day out. Well claimers, here is a reason to fall in love with My Morning Jacket: they're giving you the prom you've always wanted!

The band just announced on their website that "For all of you who missed your prom back in 1956 or 1986 or 2006 for that matter, we will be hosting the 1st annual MMJ 2 night prom, March 6th and 7th, at the fabulous, prom-ready, 40 watt club in Athens! The first time we walked thru those hallowed 40 Watt doors we said to ourselves, "this place looks perfect for a prom!" And now the dream will be a reality. The theme is a futuristic/retro under the sea vibe - costumes (tuxes, suits, robots, mermaid and lobster costumes, anything prom/ocean related) are not only encouraged - they are MANDATORY!!! NO ONE will be admitted without proper attire! There will be cake, balloons, fishnets, classic cars, chaperones, spankings, and a whole lotta shakin goin on - 2007 style up in this bitch ya'll. Come prepared to dance the night away, and make up for all the proms you missed..."

That, is an act of love. Now, like back in high school, if I could just get a date for it!
