Lenny: 
hmmm, playing for real
Lenny:  tell me the ten most interesting things that happened in your world this week

Lenny:  people rarely refer to me as kind, so who's lying?
Ivana: i was being facetious
Lenny: too big a word for me, let’s go to #5
Ivana: you're the one with the masters degree
Lenny:  oh yeah, that. howzabout 3 days grace as #5
Ivana:  for lorraine caruso, it's #1, as in "Most Added." (cheesy, but i could't resist)
Lenny: there u go, focus
Ivana: I hope PoMo radio realizes how genius the donnas are
Lenny:  me too, i love the video. it's time for some girlpower at the format
Ivana:  radio talks a lot about "branding." here's a well-known brand they should be all about. some biggies came in this week, wjbx, khbz, kfma, etc., so maybe radio is smarter than i think
Lenny: 
what number are we on?
Ivana: we're at lucky #7
Lenny::  ah, mickey mantle
Ivana:  for that, I'm going with my other favorite NYC band, the bravery. they'll be playing during CMJ, as will my other other favorite NYC band TV on the Radio
Lenny: 
the bravery is exploding in london, following killers, franz and strokes success
Ivana:  my other other other favorite NYC band elefant has a big SMASH on its hands with "Misfit." geordie gets to work them now (lucky guy)
Lenny: is that #8?
Ivana:  no. all my favorite nyc bands count as #7 (although Interpol still counts as #2 and #3)
Lenny:  i nominate ted volk and the music as #8, whaddya think?
Ivana: great minds think alike! that's where i was going
Lenny: u found some great minds?
Ivana:  it's just an expression--don't worry, i wouldn't dare put my mind in the same category as yours. ted has breathed new life into the music project with "breakin"—what an awesome song!
Lenny: kissing up is always good, hey kris metzdorf bought me a bobblehead
Ivana:  you two can discuss baseball all you like—i'll be picking fleas out of my cat with my teeth and cleaning the grout in my shower with my own toothbrush—that's more compelling to me
Lenny:  oy. baseball playoffs... i love this game. ok, back to #9?
Ivana: baseball isn't nearly as interesting or exciting as America's Next Top Model or Trading Spouses
Lenny:  killers, sum 41, hoobastank's new single "disappear".... let's talk howie and christine
Ivana:  you could've referenced them with the bravery, since the band is now signed to island
Lenny:  but not gonna take america until '05
Ivana:  Sum 41 is a big hit, The Killers' Mr. Brightside is a big hit, the new Hooba single is another #1 smash
Lenny:  IDJ rocks the hey-ouse. and howabout crossfade, closing down the majors this week and proving that active rock smashes will work at PoMo with the right label conviction and huge callout
Ivana:  that is very true. kroq is playing "Slow Hands" now. I must dance.
Lenny:  i nominate stu, ron, stephanie and john for #9 or is that #10? jewish girls shouldn't dance
Ivana:  except to interpol
Lenny:  my daughter and i dance to coheed’s "blood red summer"
Ivana:  dude, i've been waist deep in interpol since BEFORE their first cd came out. i've earned the right to dance
Lenny:  is that a sexual reference?
Ivana: not remotely. i have only maternal feelings for interpol, not sexual
Lenny:  me too
Ivana: you'd look good in a suit
Lenny:  suits are ok, it's the ties that are a problem for me
Ivana:  "and celebrate the myriad ways that I love you..."
Lenny:  oy. did we get to #10 yet?
Ivana: hang on, big finish. let's make it a good one
Lenny: ok, hit me with your best shot
Ivana:  oh god. i can't respond to a pat benatar reference
Lenny:  sorry. ok then, fire away
Ivana:  alright, here goes: #10 are my favorite virgins for closing wbcn on the explosion. this will be the "tipping point" the song needed
Lenny: who you calling a virgin
Ivana:  bill carroll, howard p., jenni sperandeo
Lenny: 
ok, one final question..... and i think a fitting close for the column... what did kroq add this week?
Ivana: nothing
Lenny:  perfect, say goodnight gracie
Ivana:  goodnight mrs. calabash
Lenny:  wherever u are
Ivana:  exactly
