Good Morning!

GREETINGS, everyone!!! While I spent my weekend agonizing over the feud between Spencer Pratt and Mary-Kate Olsen, I hope all of you were enjoying your air-conditioned-induced work-free days.

As for me, I just wanted to give a lil shout to the VH1 Blog. Why? Well, they're the first major blog to link to one of *my* stories. Remember that Mizz Na'Tasha item I posted in regards to her gracing the cover of Smooth magazine? Well, I never realized it'd be such a success! So much so that it grabbed the attention of the VH1 Blog. So three cheers for a first step in getting The Platinum Pen noticed by the "big wigs." haha

Okay, moving on.... how much do I freakin hate (sorry, my mom always tells me I should only reserve the word hate for Hitler and a couple losers I used to know--but I really hate songs. I really, really do) L.A. radio? One would expect L.A. to have wonderful radio stations, right? Ugh, couldn't be more wrong. Every channel I click, I am lead to the same freakin songs. And let me just say on the record, I don't care how damn popular it is, but I hate that song "Bleeding Love." Ugh, it's always on. And it's soooo annoying. I want to stab the radio everytime it comes on. Not to mention, L.A. radio (mainly KIIS-FM--gawd, and even Power 106) still feels the need to play "Sexy Can I" by Ray J. Can we say OVER it?! And lastly, "Lollipop" by Lil Wayne. Just strangle me, why don't you. Oh wait, and how can I forget the worst ??? "Bye Bye Bye," by Mariah Carey. OMG. Sorry yall. It's Monday, I'm tired, irritable, need my coffee.

BUT... on a much more relieving note, good news: To those who are over mainstream L.A. radio (minus good 80's r&b/dance stations like 93.9 and 102.3), I have turned to an alternative music source. When I am in my car, I'll still try to dig through radio stations, in between balancing the music on my CDs. But now when I am at home, I will opt to listen to iTUNES radio. I've actually been doing this for about 5 years, but I go through phases of time in which I listen frequently, and I go through phases of my station of choice. Station of the moment? Radio Danz . It's all dance music--mainly house-ish type stuff--and it's always fun and lively. You can make song requests from the station's playlist, and you are allowed up to 2 per hour; and provided that the song hasn't been played in the previous 3 hours, your requests will be played in no more than 15 minutes. You can also add songs to the station's playlist by emailing . Anyway, I strongly suggest giving this station a listen. I've been listening to it all the time, I've discovered so many new songs from the station, and I just wanted to spread the word. :-)

ENJOY YOUR DAY, EVERYONE. I promise to make more posts this week. Once again, I apologize for the shortage last week.

I hate that "Bleed" song too.. it's an updated version of Sinead O'conner, right? Think about it.

Not that I know of. I think it's an original. But it'd be interesting if such were the case... I'll google it.
