As we mentioned in the first post of this round of Ask the Panel, this series would focus on entertainment and a bit more. Over the past few weeks, we’ve learned about our panelists’ favorite movies, books, and musicians. Now it’s time for the “more” we noted earlier, which – you’ve guessed it – is food.

For this round, our panelists grabbed their adult-sized bibs and slipped into their eating pants, ready to share the foods that make their mouths water every time they’re within close proximity. Without further ado, we’ll end the series with the following question:

What foods can you not live without?

For last week’s edition of Ask the Panel, our panelists shared their must-read book recommendations. Some suggested great American novels along the lines of The Great Gatsby, while others opted for classics like Lolita. Others chose books that spark the reader’s creativity or even influence their personal finances.

This week, we want to know which musicians our panelists can simply not get enough of. Without further ado, we’ll continue the series with the following question:

Who are your all-time favorite musicians?

For last week’s edition of Ask the Panel, we learned about our panelists’ favorite movies. Some were foreign films hailing from places as far as Hong Kong, while others were set in the heart of Alabama. While some were classic coming-of-age flicks like The Breakfast Club and 10 Things I Hate About You, others focused on blowing stuff up or the really, really, ridiculously good looking.

This week, we want to know what books our panelists curl up to on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Without further ado, we’ll continue the series with the following question:

Which books would you recommend to all of your friends?

For the latest installment of our interview series, we’ve invited our new music writer, Elaine Jones, to interview Chloe Chaidez of the Los Angeles-based band, Kitten.

Surely these LA rockers are bringing the angelic aspect back to The City of Angels.

The band may be young, but there is no frivolity here. Kitten is going to be everywhere soon. I can feel it.

We’ve rounded up a few new and old faces for our Ask the Panel series, back by popular demand. Our panelists include the founder of an ethical clothing boutique, the creator of a couture events and photography company, our very own music writer, the CEO of a digital media beauty company, a women’s wear designer, and a fashion blogger.

While our questions for the panelists previously centered around fashion, we’re switching it up and instead focusing on entertainment… and a bit more. (You’ll see exactly what we mean by “more” in the fourth installment.) Without further ado, we’ll start the series off with the following question:
