Long Time, No Post...

Hey guys!

Please note: I have not forgotten about my loyal Platinum Pen readers. I love this blog and I have invested SO much of my time and energy into this, and I still plan to keep it running. Things will just be a little slow for now, as I think the content of the blog will change to some degree. I need to figure things out, but this is DEFINITELY still going to be around.

For now, until I update further, please visit http://marcmalkin.eonline.com to see some of my reporting!!!

Fall And Magic

Fall has always been the season where anything good that's happened in my life has happened. It's like total utter magic, and I don't know why or what, but it just is. And it's been that way ever since I was born. It's just the greatest season. And it reminds me of so many things. I think this is the point at which I start missing school at Oregon and all that. But whatever, I'm at an incredibly exciting point in my life right now. Things are so incredibly amazing. I think they will only get better from here--provided I keep networking and just keep working it like maj. I'm meeting SO many people and experiencing so many things that most people will never experience in their lives. I don't want to jinx it.

But anyway, all I wanna do is curl up to some overcast weather and some chill hed kandi house songs. Gawd, I love fall. I've been a regular at The 'Bucks all week, buying out the supply of syrup for those Pumpkin Spice Lattes. ahhh what can I say?

Seriously, so many weird things have been happening lately. weird, good, unexpected?

Hey Everyone!!!!

AHHH just tried to write a post, but no luck. Anyway, I just wanted to apologize for not updating this thing lately. I feel like such an unloyal blogger. I just landed a reporting position at E! Online. So my life has been increasingly busy.

I love you all though, and I plan to do a major update soon!!!

XOXOXOXO

I Owe an Apology...

I feel really bad about my negative statements regarding the new 90210. Am I bummed that there is something trying to take the place of the most amazing show in my life? Yes, of course. I think what bums me out the most is the fact that it's not even in the hands of the original people involved in the development of the show.

But as far as my comments go in regards to the acting and the characters and so forth, I do take it all back. I met the majority of the cast last night, and I spoke to them individually at great length. They were the most normal, funny, lighthearted, down-to-earth people I've ever met in this business, and I hope newfound fame does not change them.

So with that said, yes, I do look at this show in a little bit of a negative way (based on where my heart is--with Aaron Spelling and such), but I will not say anything else negative about the show from this point on. I wish the show and the characters all the very best.

Sound Off: Which of the Following Can You Tolerate Least

While the majority of us were busy gettin' crunk n stuff over the weekend, Heidi Montag and Diddy apparently had enough time to grace the blogosphere with some terrible nonsense. Which is worse? Diddy's non-sensical rant about Sarah Palin, or Heidi Montag's unshockingly horrible new song "Party's Wherever I am." ? I honestly couldn't make it through either of them, so you be the judge.






Did You Survive??

Good morning, everyone!

This 3-day weekend was far more than I ever could have imagined. It was SO much fun! On Friday I went to OC, and then for the rest of the weekend I pretty much covered all of LA--hitting up everything from the hotspot gay clubs on Santa Monica Blvd., to the hostpot regular clubs in Hollywood/West Hollywood, to random bars in Studio City, to parties in the West Hollywood Hills. and the list goes on. I feel so full from eating and drinking all through the weekend.

last night, my roommates and I hosted the official Chingy Comeback Movement party. It was badazzz.

Now I'm just tired and in recovery mode. Not hungover at all or anything like that. More just like in hunger-hangover mood. Ate soooo much. But wow, so much fun!

I will post more later. For now, I'm just trying to focus on staying awake and doing my job.

XOXO

Apparently Hilary Duff Still Has a Fan

She may be just another face to the majority of us, but to some Conoga Park, CA resident, Hilary Duff is clearly their numero uno! 

Damn, it's too bad SDohertyFan doesn't fit on license plates. That would TOTES be on mine!

Solange Knowles is Kinda a Diva Bitch


The lesser-known of the Knowles sister duo made an appearance on a Las Vegas Fox channel to talk about I guess her album or something. And naturally, the producers of the show planned to ask her about Jay-Z selling his Vegas club 40/40. I don't see this being a particularly juicy question. It's not like it's related to some scandal. She could have given some B.S. answer. Give these journalists a break for doing their freakin job! But instead, she gets all defensive on the reporter who happened to appear confused. Watch as Solange calls the station out for introducing her on TV in such an "unprofessional" manner, and the producer tells her that the question about Jay-Z didn't even appear on air.

But, like everything these days, celebs always gotta fire back. So after you watch the vid above, you can view Knowles' personal video response in which she defends the situation and explains why she did what she did. Gawd, really? 

Good News For Fans of the ORIGINAL 90210!

SOAPNET is showing a 24-hour marathon of the greatest show ever!!! So while all you alchys spend Monday recovering from your Labor Day bingefest, you can totally hit up your TV screen all day for some sikkkkkk shit! STOKED!

The New 90210 is a Classless Skankfest and Tori Spelling is a Lying Famewhore

I once again hate talking about the stupid 90210 2.0. It like bothers me inside my heart. It kills me, in fact. And the more I hear about it, the more upset I get. I wish Aaron Spelling were still alive so he could put a ban on this crap. It's tearing me apart. And there is yet one more thing to add to my anticipated hatred. Entertainment Weekly posted a pretty interesting interview with former foes and co-stars Shannen "GOD" Doherty and Jennie Garth. The best bitch we knew and loved appears to have cleaned up her act. Now she's like all mature and shit, and that makes me upset. I miss the cigarrette-smoking, bitch-slapping, trash-talking, Rick Solomon-marrying Doherty. Not this proper, well-behaved, soft spoken chick. Who is the girl anyway?

But anyway, Doherty and Garth revealed some skankalicious 411 about the premiere of the 90210 remake. And this scandalousness is shit that wouldn't even appear in an ep of Melrose Place for crying out loud.

"All I know is there's a girl giving a guy a blowjob in the first episode," says Doherty.

"I thought, Aaron Spelling is rolling over in his grave right now," Garth reacts.

And EW also gets to the nitty gritty of Tori Spelling's not-so-best-selling memoir which I saw sitting on a table next to a rack carrying the Lauren Conrad Collection at the Kitson outlet store only two months after publication. So sad.

EW says, "In Tori Spelling's book sTORI Telling, she tells some pretty harsh stories about you, Shannen. Did you read the book?"

And the newly mature Doherty responded all properly, saying, "I will censor myself out of respect for Jennie because she's friends with Tori. I got passages sent to me and a vast majority of it is incredibly exaggerated. Maybe it's a difference of how I was raised. I just don't believe you write personal on-set experiences in a book. For me, when you work it's almost a sacred experience whether you get along with everyone or not. In 27 years of acting I've never sold out one of my cast members. Ever. And I will stick to that."

Tori is pathetic. We all know she was a bitch of her own right in those days. But she felt like selling out her former co-stars was a good way to make a buck. Note to Tori: nobody cares about your stupid book or the stupid drama you have to recount by living vicariously through people who had a far more exciting life than you!

My Hero Shannen Graces This Week's Cover of UsWeekly!!!


Janice Min's famed celeb tabloid took a break from the Speidi sagas and finally decided to place an icon on it's cover!!! I have nothing more to say except that I want to murder the new 90210, but I am thrilled that at least it's giving my idol Shannen Doherty the exposure she still deserves. I am the hugest 90210 fan on the planet and I always will be. Nobody loves her/Brenda more than myself, and I proudly and confidently state this.

Shannen's probably pissed that she has to share a cover with a newbie like Carrie Underwood. [snooze]. Shannen should have been granted the entire cover. Nobody in the world is worth sharing the Goddess of television's space!--well, except maybe Jason Priestley. He's kinda the effing sh*t!

Same Sex Marriage is "Not Only Unhealthy, But it is Illegal in 48 States"

In wake of last week's news that Hallmark has very appropriately created four same-sex-themed cards for sale, the pathetic and rigid minds at the American Family Association want to remind the greeting card company that same-sex marriage is illegal in 48 states, stating that the lifestyle is "unhealthy" and "promoting same-sex marriage for profit is not the very best for families or our nation." 

Well, unfortunately for the right-wing Christian Fundamentalists who run and/or support the AFA, the two states that do allow gay/lesbian marriages are doing extremely well for themselves. So despite the coalition's warning/reminder, it's pretty safe to say that Hallmark will be just fine with it's very money-minded, innovative and liberal decision.

And anyone else who has a problem with this can eff off!

Remembering Aaliyah

Aside from today being the birthday of two of my favorite people on the planet (Grandpa Joey and Sheryl Thompson), today also marks the seven-year anniversary of the death of Aaliyah Dana Haughton, more simply known as just Aaliyah. Regardless of the year, each August 25th, I always try to do something to commemorate the life of the most beautiful, humble and talented woman of R&B.

At just 22, the entertainer's life was taken due to a plane crash in the Bahamas. Aaliyah was an singer, actress and dancer. She was linked to R. Kelly, having married him at just 15 years old. The marriage was annulled based on Aaliyah's then-age, and she was most recently linked to Roc-A-Fella's Damon Dash at the time of her death in 2001. She was also very close friends with hip-hop artist/producer Timbaland.

She left us with so many beautiful songs. Among them, my favorites are definitely "I Miss You," "I Care For You," "Back and Forth," and "One in a Million." I shall leave you with my favorite Aaliyah song "I Miss You." It was one of the final songs she released, and it is quite fitting for this posting, considering the nature. I don't know what's more sad--the music video itself, or the circumstances that led to the dynamics of the music video.

Rest In Peace, Aaliyah.

BREAKING: Kim Kardashian Rushed to Hospital; Sliced Open Her Foot


God's gift to the Armenian kind, AKA Kimberly Kardashian, has been rushed to the ER at a hospital in New York after slicing her foot open on a glass table. Reports are saying there was so much blood from the incident that it looked like a murder scene!

Buttt....this could be a blessing in disguise for the sexpot, as reports are also saying that this mishap may result in the inability for Kimmy to partake in Dancing With the D-Listers as was originally planned. You know she did this shit on purpose. She realized what a complete mistake she'd be making by agreeing to do the worst show ever! So she went through all this! Good choice, Kim. It'll all be worth it in the end.

My Full-Moon-ish AOL Experience

Okay, weeeeeirddddd...Tonight I signed on to an AOL screen name that I NEVER use. And two instant messages popped up over the course of the evening, consisting of very bizarre content.

Some Skanks Will Never Learn

Who in hell's name let Audrina Patridge walk out of the house looking like that (see above)? Awhile back, I posted a different photo of Audrina's spaced-apart breasts looking like shit. But this one surely tops 'em all! There's a lil sumthin called "proportion," Ms. Patridge. When you are size 00, you should not be trying to sport them DD's. And even moreso, you should not be trying to fit them DDs into an XS bikini top. This oblivious ho needs to get her boobs redone. They don't look good, sweetie!

Ugh, I need to finish this post and publish it, because the longer I am forced to look at this gawd-awful photo, the more angry I am increasingly getting by the minute!

Perez Outs Yet Another--Teenyboppers Will be Crushed

Leave it to Perez Hilton to break the news of one's gay/lesbian-dom. He has a habit of doing so, and his latest outing is New Kids on the Block's Jordan Knight [gasp!]. It's a good thing the news is brought out now, as opposed to years ago because at least all of the boy band's fans are now hopefully married. We know back in the day, the ladies would have been crushed!

Per Perez, Mr. Knight is super close to coming out to the public and he currently does have a boyfriend. So is he dating fellow gay boy-bander Lance Bass? Nope, apparently the former Sweet Valley High actor is named Harley (eew) and currently works as a trainer at Barry's Bootcamp in L.A.

So if Lance Bass turned out gay from NSYNC, and Jordan Knight is apparently gay from NKOTB, then (at least) one of the Jonas Brothers has to be gay, too, right? I mean it would only be fitting for boy band statistics. I kinda think all of those Jonas Bros are gay, but that's just me. I mean, those chastity rings they wear have got to be a cover-up to avoid having to sleep with a woman.

BET Celebrates the 2000th Episode of 106 & Park

Oh, man. These are the days I remember (see photo). Back in college when I'd rush home from class and turn on the tube to catch AJ and Free hosting 106 & Park. I freakin loved that show! But AJ & Free and have been gone from the TRL-ish-but-way-better hip-hop show since '06, and the show got replaced by two lame-o's Terrance and Rocsi. And quite frankly, I haven't really watched the show since.

But I will give big ups to the network for making the show last this long...and it's still goin for that matter! 2000 epsiodes is a lot of music videos, a lot of guests and a lot of Freestyle Fridays.

Keyshia Cole, Big Tig, Soulja Boy, Jennifer Hudson, Busta Rhymes, Terrance Howard, and a much too heavily tattooed Bow Wow all came on the monumental episode yesterday to chat up the crowd or perform a song.

Congrats, 106 & Park!

Preview: The Game's New Album LAX

Check out The Game's new album LAX before it hits stores August 26th. Click here to listen. The new album is definitely not radio friendly, so if hip-pop is your thing, I can already tell you this won't be your thing.
