Glossary update: JELA=Jett Eye Lock Alert

The “Do You Wanna Touch Me” video from my last post had so much Jett Eye Lockage that I felt the need to update the glossary page with a new acronym:

JELA = Jett Eye Lock Alert

I will be looking for this in videos from now on, and I will tag them #JELA when they contain significant eye lockage.

Do you have any Jetthead terms to add to the glossary?


Glossary Update: 11/18/2009

I added three new terms to the glossary today:

IHMFLY: Acronym for “I Hate Myself for Loving You.” See “Hate.”

P&S: Abbreviation for “Pure and Simple,” the album of that name released in 1994.

UYA: Acronym for “Up Your Alley.” See Alley.

Glossary update: “CTW”

Don’t ask me HOW I forgot to add CTW to the glossary the first time around, but I did.

CTW: Acronym for “Change The World,” the second single from the 2006 album “Sinner.”

Check out the rest of the Glossary.

“Dog” and “KOTL” added to the Glossary

Thanks to comments by Jeanne, I added the following terms to the glossary:

Dog: Abbreviation for “I Wanna Be Your Dog,” a Stooges cover song from the Up Your Alley album. (See Alley.)

KOTL: Acronym for “Kiss on the Lips,” a song released on 2004’s Japanese import album “Naked.”

See the rest, and make suggestions HERE.

Glossary page added

When I sent live tweets from the Joan Jett show last Wednesday, I realized that I like to use a lot of shorthand for song titles and various things in the Jett universe. For example, I would rather type JJBH instead of spelling out Joan Jett and the Blackhearts every single time.

Abbreviations like JJBH are common in the fandom for those of us who have been around awhile, but brand-new Joan Jett fans would probably not know what some of our terms mean. Imagine the “WTF?” moment that a casual Twitter user would experience if they had stumbled across a tweet from me that just said, “touch me.” And then imagine what would happen if they could find me after that. <Shudder>

Rather than make newbies figure everything out on their own, I thought it would be helpful to define some of the acronyms, abbreviations, and slang we use in one place. So, I added a glossary page to the site. Here’s the link (there’s also a tab for it at the top):

I started with the terms that I use often. Please check my work and make additions or corrections as necessary in the comments. Thanks!
