Guns N’ Roses’ Appetite for Destruction. My mother is a devoted Catholic, the cover of the album made her eyes pop! The cross and the skulls… It was actually too much for her. But, pretty amazingly, she ended up being cool with it (or was she just acting? Hehe, who knows).

What book are you reading now and what’s the score (1-10)?
Conversations with God. 10! Makes you see things from different angles.

What new movie should people see? Why?
The Avengers! Robert Downey Jr is such superb eye candy. Impartial recommendation? I know. Pardon me.

What music do you choose to start your weekend with?
The Chemical Brothers! Gets me in the mood to party! (NOT!) …Well, I go to sleep at around 10pm. But I do love The Chemical Brothers.

And music you choose to end your weekend?
Andezzz! To chill me out before Monday begins.
