Shawn Colvin poses nude

I knew a guy once. Came into a bar I worked. Always full of ideas. This was one: "Playboy should do their take on Parade's annual salary issue. Just sub the clothed head shots with nude body shots. Damn, tell me that thing wouldn't sell."

Not sure this is what he had in mind. But, it's getting closer.

Musicians ranging from the ballsy, sexy Kacy Crowley to the better-clothed-and-heard Lounge Lizards got naked for a calendar - all to help with medical costs for songwriter Jon Dee Graham's son. Read more about it here.

My friend Matt has for years wanted to do a coffee table book of celebs on the toilet, and gained encouragement when I told him about that photo of Stephen Dorff on the can that appeared in "Detour" magaine (back when they let just anybody work for them).

It wouldn't have to be anything naughty--just kind of along the lines of that famous Frank Zappa photo.

I think I might have to buy this calendar.

JSBankston: I think I recall a picture in Rolling Stone of Jenny McCarthy on the toilet. Now we have three pics already for the book. I'm sure there are others.

Lemme guess--she was photographed, as always, with her mouth open, grimacing, right?

i remember a friend of mine had a picture of himself on the toilet for his yearbook picture, but he doesn't exactly qualify as a celebrity...

shawn colvin? she's the dawsons creek theme-song gal, no?

Nope. I think you're thinking of Paula Cole.

Colvin prefers to shave under her arms and is probably best known for winning a Grammy for 'Song of the Year' only to be upstaged by Ol' Dirty Bastard as she was about to give her acceptance speech.

A friend of mine had a picture of John Steinback leaning forward and looking pensive, placed at just the right angle and height on the wall opposite his toilet. The first time you had to do your business at his house you would be in for a shock when you found yourself face-to-face with the author.

Steinbeck, excuse. I was between naps when I wrote that....

Who's that on the cover? Kacy's on the right, yes? Shawn on the left, maybe? That ain't Shawn Colvin in the middle...

My guess for the middle is Trish Murphy.

I ordered a copy ... so maybe I will follow-up with whatever photo becomes my favorite month.

Be warned--"Miss April" is a nude Don Walser.

TJ: Think you're right...this is from Trish's website:

Earlier this year Jon Dee Graham's 8-year-old son was diagnosed with a bone degenerative condition; the family was left without health coverage when their carrier filed for bankruptcy. The Austin music community has rushed to support one of its best loved and most profoundly talented guitarists, in part by recording Jon Dee's songs in tribute. Please visit www.texasmusicroundup.com to get your copy of "Big Sweet Life." Features "Butterfly Wing" sung by the New Hot Damn (Trish Murphy, Kacy Crowley, Renee Woodward).

And that's definitely Kacy at right...and I don't believe that's Shawn on the left. Git yer damn calendar and let us know!

It seems like logic would tell you it is probably Renee Woodward - the final third of New Hot Damn.

I must say, Kacy is one of my all-time favorites. She is actually a "Rare, Rare Find" I've been meaning to write.

Trish and Renee are another story. Never quite got either of them. They are the soy milk to Kacy's whiskey.
