Fellow Jetthead, if you are reading this, my heart goes out to you. Let us know if we can help. I’m willing to bet that the person who took your stuff is NOT a Jetthead, because I don’t think we could do this to each other!


EDIT: If you live in the Chicago area and have any information about this crime, please contact your local police and report it.

Activity Grrrls’ Radio Revolution airs on Hunter College’s WHCS radio station every Tuesday at 2:00 PM Eastern time. On tomorrow’s show, Steph and Danielle are going to interview a very special guest: ME!

You can listen live online tomorrow HERE.

After the show airs, they will archive it HERE. I’ll let you know when they post it. The first show from this semester is already up, and they gave Born to be Jetthead a shout out at the end. Check it out. Thanks guys! (Their shows from last semester are archived here.)

We’re going to talk about Joan Jett and The Runaways from a fan’s point of view. During the interview you will learn such fascinating things as:

  1. My first name.
  2. What a Pittsburghese accent sounds like.
  3. How I feel about Kristen Stewart’s transformation as Joan Jett for The Runaways movie.
  4. What the hell “JJElektric” means.
  5. My favorite Joan Jett and The Blackhearts album.

And more!

I have never done anything like this before, so if it sucks, I will delete this post and pretend it never happened laugh at myself in a healthy, well-adjusted manner.
