Don't Be An Amazing Musician

..if you wanna live past 27, that is.


The 27 Club, also occasionally known as the Forever 27 Club, is a popular culture name for a group of influential rock and blues musicians who all died at the age of 27, sometimes under mysterious circumstances. There is some debate as to the criteria used to include people in the “27 Club”. The impetus for the Club’s creation was the death of an unusual number of 27 year old prominent musicians within a two year period of time. Lists commonly include Hendrix, Morrison, and Joplin; Brian Jones is usually included too. Kurt Cobain is now often included due to his impact on music in more recent years.

I am a very superstitious person. Like I have certain rituals I must do before I do something like if I walk alone in a dark street, I bite my tongue (so the ghosts won't see you or something), when I say something bad, I always apologize to the universe and take back what I said (I fear karmaaaa). I also make sure I don't step over any corners with just one foot because I feel like there's a string attached to the tip and it'll stay with me 'til I make my other foot--wait, that's being OC, sorry.

ANYWAYS!

Basically, I'm superstitious. So, hearing about this was pretty cool. I mean, music and lore...two of my favorite things in one! Heeee...know anyone else who ended up becoming a member of the 27 Club?

Ke$ha -- March 1



Justin Bieber -- March 1

Jason Castro -- March 25




Jay Sean -- March 26



Mariah Carey -- March 27



Fergie -- March 27

So many musical names celebrated their birthday this March!

Is it because March and Muse (Greek Mythology reference here) start with the same letter? How about Music? LOL

Okay, whatever. Either way, though, tons of artists have been celebrating their birthdays and there could be so many more that I missed!

Call me up at 6330995 and 7060940 and give me a name from the list above and, and you get tickets to the Reel Time Advanced Screening of Date Night if you do! Just leave your name, city, and contact number so I can put you on the list.

I'll post this up on the RT30 fanpage and the RT30 group page so you can clicky :D

Good Luck! :D

Alana: Banned From The Station. JUSTKIDDINGLOVEYEW ♥

A few months back when JJ and I were having a tricky time preparing for the show, we decided to open up our arms to interns. We got a few, but they didn't last long. Some of them had conflicting duties, some just weren't really into radio and didn't do so well.

Then came Alana.

Her school didn't require her to have hours done, so she came to us because she wanted to know what it would be like working in radio.

Alana was a breath of fresh air! The first few months she was there, you wouldn't believe how often JJ and I would say, "Thank GOD for Alana!" She's smart, funny, dependable, she takes instruction well, and she's just an all around AWESOME GIRL OH YEAH.

Alana was the first of our interns, and she's been with us for half a year already. She's been working hard and non-stop for free ham and cheese, and movie tickets (and experience, of course), and this summer, we're happy to let you have a nice long break.

She'll be back soon, but for now, work hard on your school stuff, have a blast this summer, and don't forget to drop by the station every now and then so we're still all complete. :D

We love you, Alana! We'll miss you for a few months! :D

Iyaz covers Greenday: What a flop!


Who would have thought that Iyaz liked Greenday enough to cover 21 Guns! BUT it isn't as impressive as we thought it would be! Maybe Iyaz should stick to the RnB auto tune tracks! What say you? Hit the comments to give your two cents worth!

-JJ

Lady Gaga's Telephone (explicit version :3)

----------------------------------------------

Soooo...! This week, for the first time since the RT30 started, the hottest new entry debuted at number one, BUT this isn't the first time it happened in RT history.



The last time this happened was back in September 1992 when Madonna's single "Erotica" debuted at number one on the RT40.

This was because Madonna had released an erotic coffee table book before she released the single, so the anticipation for this song was INSANE.

There...a little trivia for you from us here on the RT30 team. Hope you enjoyed this week's show! Keep sending in your votes and requests for next week. Let's see what'll happen to "Alice", eh? ;)

RT30 Last Week's Top 5 and Dropouts

Hey guys! Check this out :D

LAST WEEK'S TOP 5
5 TRAIN - HEY, SOUL SISTER
4 OWL CITY- VANILLA TWILIGHT
3 JASON CASTRO - LET'S JUST FALL IN LOVE AGAIN
2 ADAM LAMBERT- FOR YOUR ENTERTAINMENT
1 ADAM LAMBERT- WHATAYA WANT FROM ME

I love Train! But the only song I really, really like from them is Ordinary from the Spiderman 2 OST. Owl City was just here and Alven, Clarisa, and Jessica (from the RT30 Team) were able to watch him! They said he looked high on-stage, just like he seems like he always is. How else do you come up with the kinda songs he has? Haha!

At number 3 is the GORGEOUS and MARRIED Jason Castro. I wish he'd sing that song for me.

And naturally, you've got Adam Lambert with For Your Entertainment and Whataya want from me at number two and one respectively. This guy cannot seem to be stopped! Such a diva, I love it.

Here are the dropouts if you missed this part of the show :D

DROPOUTS
29 LEIGHTON MEESTER - SOMEBODY TO LOVE
28 MILEY CYRUS - PARTY IN THE USA
24 SNOW PATROL - JUST SAY YES
10 JAY SEAN - DO YOU REMEMBER
9 KRIS ALLEN- LIVE LIKE WE'RE DYING

Can you imagine? Kris Allen dropped from number 9! And Miley Cyrus and Leighton Meester really don't know if they're gonna drop out or comeback in or dropout again. Then of course we have Just Say Yes and Do You Remember...or we don't. Oh boy.

Votes are food to these songs! Don't let them be malnourished heehee.

Come back a little later, 'kay? 'Coz I'll be putting up entries as the show goes along ;)

Yaya Jayan

We've had this yaya since I was in the 4th grade. Her name is Jayan.

She isn't just any old yaya! First of all, really isn't old. Second, she's got this strange personality with a billion quirks.

1. She's so in with the latest celebrity gossip.

She LOVES watching E!, Entertainment Tonight, and The Insider. She watches out for her favorite actors and actresses like "Jakie" (Jackie Chan), "Angelica" (Angelina Jolie), "Bread Peet" (Brad Pitt), "Heelaree Dap" (Hilary Duff), and "LinD-sai Luna" (Lindsay Lohan).


2. She really knows her finances and anything that's got to do with it.

She has an ATM, so she can manage her money (she has other businesses). Sometimes, she asks me for help withdrawing from "Weswes Bang" (East West Bank), "Mitrobang" (Metrobank), or "Yunyun Bang" (Union Bank).


3. She's almost totally involved in the family.

She and my dad were talking about getting a "fak mashin" (fax machine) one time, and she never failed to wake me up and remind me that I had "botai" (Muay Thai--she remembers Billy Blanks' Tae Bo tapes that she used to work out to) every MWF morning.


4. She's really comfortable at home already, so we do trust her when she's around our things, even though she likes to mess with them. She's scared of all our things anyway--she thinks they're all potentially hazardous to her health.


-Liquid eyeliner.
I had liquid eyeliner before that I never used, so she got it from my bag and asked if she could have it. I said, yeah, sure. Then she excitedly entered the bathroom and faced the mirror. She got the wand out and asked me how to apply it. I said, "Just trace around your eyes." She pulled down her...eyebag(?), put the wand to the rim of her eye, and traced a nice solid line along the INSIDE of the skin. She let go and proceeded to tear up, asking me what was wrong and if it really hurt that way. I told her to wash her eye out and never gave her liquid eyeliner again.

-Mace.
One time, when Jayan was home alone, she was cleaning up the master's bedroom. When she got to my mum's vanity mirror, she looked through its myriad of contents as she usually does, searching for something to satiate her boredom. Among the bottles of perfume was the new can of pepper spray mum bought us for when we commute. On the can, there's a print of an angry gorilla with the words "BACK OFF!!" on it. She thought it said, "BACK OFF!!" because of it's strong, alluring scent. So she opened it and sprayed it on her arm. The first thing she realized was that it said "BACK OFF!!" because it stank. Then, she also realized that she could no longer breathe. Then she thought she was gonna die. She never tried any of our perfumes again.

-Berocca.
I'm sure most of you know what Berocca is. It's a tablet you dissolve in a glass of water to get your RDA of vitamins and all that good-for-your-health stuff. Jayan knows that, too--that it's good for your health. So one time when she was feeling sick, she saw the Berocca mum left behind and thought that it contained all the vitamins she needed to get better, so she got one and popped it in her mouth. After a few seconds of chewing, her mouth started to froth. She thought she was gonna die.


5. She brings us Midnight Snacks at 9pm.

On the menu would usually be egg sandwiches, "pinitpit" (grilled cheese sandwiches :p), fruit salad, PB&J, and chips.


6. She's a party animal

When friends come over to drink, there's usually half a bottle we save for next time. When I see her tipsy a few nights later, I know to buy a new bottle for said next time. She also used to dance with us (9 years ago) in my old room. She loved Weird Al.

Oh yeah...she thinks that every nice song she hears on the radio is by Air Supply.

That's Jayan for ya.

The Dangerous Freudian Slip

Why does it always happen to me? lol

Seriously...there have been so many instances where I'd say something and I'd just end up beet red in the face.

Exhibit A: Nagaraya

Nagaraya was one of our bigger sponsors a few months back so we got alot of yums from them. On air, we'd read billboards for them and stuff, and to put extra effect, some of us would eat Nagaraya while in the booth. I'd eat Nagaraya while reading something about Nagaraya. One time, I choked. So I coughed, excuse myself, and said, "Sorry, I've got nuts in my mouth."

When I finally realized what I said, my eyes popped outta my sockets and I tried to save it. "No, no, I meant that I'm eating...I've got nuts down my throat." After that, I was just like never mind...RAAARRGH.

Exhibit B: Moddess

Moddess was gonna hold an advanced premiere for New Moon, so they had a little contest on air. They wanted girls to call in and answer the question, "Who do you like better--Edward or Jacob?" First caller gets two tickets to see both of them shirtless in the movie before anyone else does. So I started the spiel, basically telling people what they had to do. I gave a little example:

"Who do you like better--Edward or Jacob? Personally, I like Jacob, but I kinda like Edward better because I like my men hard." And again, right when I said it, I kinda pressed my hand against my forehead and tried to save myself. "What I meant to say is that, you know, Edward is hard and I like that..you know, 'coz he's a vampire...."

*sigh*

Exhibit C: Pineapple/Problem with Gibb

Last night, I stayed in the booth with Gibb to keep her company since Jos was still at work. So as her co-host, I helped her with reading some stuff off the yahoo messenger while she manned the board. I was helping her figure out how to read a message from this guy who really needed to go back to gradeschool and re-learn pronouns ("may crush me"). He was telling us about how he was having trouble approaching this girl he likes because she's always with her group of friends.

"Just go up to her and say hi!" said Gibb.

"Well," I started. "I read somewhere that men tend to be intimidated by the tightness of a girl's..." I paused and seriously thought about the word that was just at the tip of my tongue. Possy? Ah! "..clique." I finished. Gibb was looking at me like I grew another head. "What?" I asked.

"What did you say?"

Then, again, I realized what had come out of my mouth. "Clique! I said 'tightness of a girl's CLIQUE!"

Then Gibb went on telling me that I had to shut up before I said anything else lol.



Oh boy. I hope this doesn't happen when Jason Castro's around.

BOOTH!

WOW. It is COLD in here! Hahahaha!

You know who else will be in the booth with me tomorrow?

I'll give you a little hint:



EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!

Once he's here..the booth will significantly heat up, I think :> yummyyyy...

Hahaha!
