Music has always been one of my great loves. I think it stems from listening to so much of it in the womb. My parents were LA Sunset Strip party kids so I did spend my time in the womb out on the strip A LOT. I’m guessing from hearing live rock music all the time created a strong love for it. I also say this because I’m more of a rock girl than anything else…I love ’60s garage rock, ’70s old school punk, all forms of ’80s rock, ’90s alt rock and all the current indie rock. But I was raised by my grandparents and all they listened to was country and Elvis. The reasoning why I believe it all took place in the womb.
A little over 5 years ago I got my first ipod as a Christmas gift. At the time, I started to upload my cd collection into my computer to put on my ipod. I must’ve gotten too busy because I never finsihed! I’d have to say that I only got about two thirds of the way through my 300+ cds. When I moved from my loft to my house back in 2006, I packed up all my cds in boxes and that’s where they called home until a few days ago. I unpacked them all, organized them and put all the ones into my computer that hadn’t made it back in 2006. And the funny thing is I actually came across a few that I’d never even opened and/or listened to! It’s like Christmas all over again!
I’m currently listening to Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness by The Smashing Pumpkins. This is one of the cds that I just imported into my computer and that I haven’t listed to in over 5 years! It’s amazing how songs and/or albums can bring back so many feelings and memories. For instance, when I first moved back to LA to live with my grandparents during my freshman year of high school, I bought this double disc album shortly thereafter, and I literally listened to it every night to fall asleep to. Takes me back to a time when both of my grandparents were still alive and times were good. At that time, when I was 14, The Smashing Pumpkins was one of my absolute favorite bands. My grandfather, liking nothing to do with rock, always refered to them as the “Busting Gourds.” So funny. But he was a good sport with having to listen to my music all the time.
The Smashing Pumpkins actually did a tour for this album and didn’t want to deal with Ticketmaster, so they did used their own method for selling tickets. Three hours before tickets went on sale, they announced over the radio where they would be selling them. I happened to be listening to the radio that day after school when they started listing off ticket sales locations. All were pretty far away but then they announced they were going to sell tickets at Rhino Records in Claremont! I was ecstatic! Thankfully I was able to convince my grandfather to drive me to Rhino Records and stand in line with me for tickets. Since I’d just moved, I didn’t really have any friends to go with, so I bought just one ticket and went alone. They played at The Palace in Hollywood (which is now Avalon) and my grandparents drove me there, dropped me off and picked me up that night after the show. Yes, I went to a show alone at the age of 14…that’s how much I loved The Smashing Pumpkins. And it was an amazing show…general admission and only 1000 tickets sold per show. I was right at the front of the stage directly in front of James Iha, the guitarist.
I plan on selling off a bunch of my cds because I don’t really have much use for them now that they’re all in my computer and backed up. They just take up space. But certain ones that have a lot of meaning and hold memories for me, I may just have to hold onto. I’m a little sentimental like that.

My fortune today…
I know I’ve said it before but I’m going to say it again…Girlfriends Films is my favorite company to work for! And they obviously love working with me as well as they’ve been hiring me every time I come to LA! So far three releases have come out featuring me…and not only am I featured in the DVD, but I’m also on all three covers! Here are all the titles that are out so far…
Lesbian House Hunters Part 5 contains my first scene for Girlfriends Films. I was lucky enough to shoot with the super sexy Dana DeArmond! I’d been wanting to shoot with her for a long time and it was more than I could have hoped for. You’re going to love this scene like everyone else that’s already seen it!
Women Seeking Women Vol 68 is something that everyone on the Girlfriends Films forum has been waiting for. Everyone wanted to see me and Sara Stone shoot a scene together…and I’m sure they’re all happy with what came of the pairing. We had a super sweet and passionate scene together. It’s a must-see for big natural boob lovers!
Imperfect Angels 10 is a must-see if you’re a fan of mine! Because not only am I in a scene with superstar Andy San Dimas, but I’m also in a scene with naturally big busted Avy Scott! I hand picked both women myself and can’t tell you how much I enjoyed both these scenes! You have to see this one!
If you haven’t already gotten your copies, what are you waiting for? I just added them to my official store http://www.jelenajensen.com/store/ so be sure to order your copy…it comes direct from me and personally autographed!
