UNPLUGGED AT SEA
KISSONLINE EXCLUSIVE
Wow! What an amazing night! KISS played an incredible unplugged set of classics and rarities on the KISS Kruise in their first non-makeup show in over 15 years. The band was in excellent spirits, acting very playful on stage with each other, and they really appeared to be enjoying this special time with their fans.

KISS was originally slated to play for an hour, but once the one-hour mark passed, they just kept adding songs to the set. Paul remarked that they were having so much fun that they didn't want to stop! It was obvious that the fans felt the same way, as they were ecstatically singing along, word for word, to the many rarities that the band performed.

Here's the "Unplugged At Sea" setlist:

Hotter Than Hell
Calling Dr. Love
Sure Know Something
Christine Sixteen
Do You Love Me
Shandi
I Love it Loud
Forever
See You Tonight
Black Diamond
Hard Luck Woman
Beth
Everytime I Look At You
Just a Boy, I, Mr. Blackwell (medley)
Anything For My Baby
Two Timer
C'mon And Love Me
Rock and Roll All Nite

MY KRUISE STARTED WITH A BANG!
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
My KISS Kruise started out with a bang! I actually happened to be on the same plane as the band today, and we met prior to boarding. Here I am pictured with Gene and Paul as the guys arrive at LAX for their flight to Miami, Wednesday morning. The band is in great spirits, looking forward to the cruise, meeting the fans, and doing all kinds of special stuff.

MY PAUL STANLEY PAINTING
KISSONLINE FAN LETTER
In May of this year, Paul appeared on George Lopez's television show, and together they created a painting called "Help Those In Need." The painting was auctioned off with all proceeds benefiting the American Red Cross and tornado victims in the southern USA.

I was thrilled to be the winning bidder in the auction, which was for such a great cause. The painting is proudly displayed in our home, and I thought you'd enjoy seeing it too!

CRAZY COMIC BOOK CROSSOVERS
NEWSARAMA
By Albert Ching, Newsarama Staff Writer and Graeme McMillan, Newsarama Contributor

"Archie Meets Kiss" might be the latest unexpected comic book crossover, but it's far from the first. Heck, it's not even the first bizarre team-up involving Archie characters.

The history of comics is full of unlikely pairings either because of the characters involved -- like say, Batman/Danger Girl -- or the fact that, like in "Archie Meets Kiss," real people are involved, dating back to Pat Boone serenading Lois Lane in an issue of her oft-wacky Silver Age series.
