Forum

Hey loves!

You guys have been asking for a forum, so while I work on that one, you can actually use the discussion page on the RT30 Countdown with Inka facebook group!

There are a few topics up already, so feel free to populate it. I understand that it's not the same as a forum in a way that you can't pick your display name or have any sort of anonymity, but be comforted by the fact that the team will have a meeting later about how we can incorporate a forum into this site ;)

Good idea with the forums suggestion! I LOVE forums. I used to participate quite actively in a gaming forum for about 4 years. I was addicted to this online text-based strategy game...pretty kewl game, too. Oh well!

So yeah! Forums--on the to do ASAP list! :)

World's Biggest Band, A Death In Hollywood, and Young Lady Gaga!

Okay, yesterday didn't want me logging on so I couldn't post anything, but at least now, I'm able to give you guys more than just one bit!

GUESS WHAT!!

You know this lady?


Her name is Gloria Stuart and you may know her as the sweet old lady from Titanic. Well, she died last Sunday. She was 100 years old.

IN OTHER NEWS

From a band that started out as a joke to mock the other goth bands in a competition, Muse is now a strong contender for World's Biggest Band! I mean, there's U2 and everything, but they're currently on a tour hiatus until next year and it seems like no other band can come close.

Read more about it here!

Now, I was surfing around for a bit and I found some old (or young) pictures of Lady Gaga back when she was still going by Stephanie Germanotta.




So tell me!


Do you like Stephanie Germanotta better?
















Or is it Lady Gaga who stole your hearts?

Katy Perry Plays With Elmo on Sesame Street

I ♥ Katy Perry. I think she's so adorable.

Here she is singing a kid-friendly version of "Hot and Cold" with Elmo. They filmed this segment for a New Year's release, but it made its way to YoutTube and parents started reacting!

Too much cleavage, they say!

So producers pulled it out of the program flow. Question is: if they can change the lyrics of the song, why couldn't they just have made her wear something else? I mean, I'm sure they designed the outfit, I'm sure they SAW her wearing it, saw her running around in it, saw how much her boobs--oh..no WONDER they didn't change her costume :p

Here, watch!

*Pride*

Charice on GLEE was A-MAY-ZA-ZING!!

So much so that she receives an extra syllable!

She's adorable in this Telephone cover:



and just AWESOME in Listen:



Woo!!

Hey guys!

I saw the comment on my post about mean people, and this was my reply:

"It's aright Archies! I didn't generalize because I know there are very passionate fans out there, and some of them tend to get immature (bad combination LOL), so it's understood. :)

I was actually thinking to myself one time, "Archie is just the sweetest boy ever, and he has some of the most rabid fans, too! Talk about a wide spectrum!" hahaha!

Apology accepted, thank you! And yes, please pass by soon! :D Same building and floor as magic, yes. And no, I don't post on the Cbox anymore 'coz there was an Impostor Issue once before :))"

So yeah, I don't post on the Cbox, but I read it everyday :) Hallo guys! :D

RT30 Countdown, Fridays 6-9PM


Listen Up!

Updating polls today :D

Thanks for the picture Big Ben! :D

Monday, September 20, 2010

By the way

If your song doesn't get enough votes to break into the chart, then that isn't my problem anymore :p I'll be updating the polls on Wednesday.

You know what you should do?

SPREAD THE LOVE AND VOTE!!! :)

Btw, yes, I was monitoring earlier hehe. Hi guys! :)

Katy Perry's Batchelorette Party! And Some Sexual Harassment :p

What do the words "Katy Perry's Batchelorette Party" make you think of?

A pink room, fluffy pillows, feathers, soft blankets, plush beds, champagne, corsets and bustiers, high heels, stockings...ahh! The works, huh??

How about when I say, "Rihanna was there at Katy Perry's bachelorette party"?



I bet you you just had a flash about a previous post about their naked slumber parties.

Imaginations running wild? ;)

GOOD! Because here's a picture from that superfun night:



Unimaginable, isn't it?? Like, really--you wouldn't imagine it :p

On a bittersweet note, Katy Perry's soon-to-be better half Russel Brand was arrested recently for allegedly beating up a pap who tried to shoot up Katy Perry's skirt (we all know how rare Katy Perry upskirt shots are :p).

Katy Perry tweeted, "If you cross the line & try an put a lens up my dress, my fiancé will do his job & protect me."

SWEET! ♥

Now, TMZ.com said, "Fun fact ... It's not a legal defense to a battery that someone tried to shoot up your girlfriend's dress. But prosecutors know any jury would be extremely sympathetic to a celeb under these circumstances and venomous toward the paparazzi. "

Hmm..isn't that a form of sexual harassment, though? Or does that not exist if you're a celebrity?

Vote on the polls to share your thoughts! :)

By the way

Try to be nice to each other, guys.

Just to clear things up!

1. The RT30 isn't biased. Songs get in the polls once they reach a certain number of votes because the space there is limited. And the more songs there are on the poll, the harder it is to look for the song that you want. I'm quite OC so I like it when things are nice and neat, and that is the reason why some songs don't make it to the polls :) But if you want that to change for your song choice, then you MUST get more people to vote instead of doing the opposite and giving up to vote somewhere else. That REALLY won't get your song in, right? Trust me, once you get more people to vote, you'll be surprised :)

2. The bulk of the votes come from this poll, but put all the phone votes, ym votes, and twitter votes together, and it still makes quite an impact. So vote as much as you can and as often as you can :)

3. Fighting really won't get you anywhere. Bad-mouthing other fan-bases won't make their song go down the chart. Claiming something is biased won't get your song in (next time, at least :p). Only way to get it in? Just keep voting :)

4. If your song doesn't get in this week, then vote for next week and so on and so forth! :)

I'm just a spectator. All I do really is just give you what you guys ask for in the way that the votes come to me. :)

Enjoy listening tomorrow! Lots of surprises in store :)

Archie Fans!

As you all know, I added David Archuleta's song Something 'Bout Love last week at the request of a couple of Archie fans AFTER I've said that they SHOULD get more people to vote.

Here is the result of that whole week of voting:


But since Archie Fans have had enough time to get people to vote for the song, let's see if it enters the chart this week! Tune in tomorrow from 6-9pm :D

Innocence?

Hey guys!

Yes, it's been a few days since I posted...my fault! You know when Murphy's Law is at work--anything and everything can and will go wrong. No wifi, can't connect, I get disconnected, blah blah blah :p

ANYWAYS.

Yesterday? Much fun indeed. If you guys were in the 6750 area in Makati, then you should have passed by Starbucks because 99.5RT was broadcasting live over there :D It was pretty fun! I had so much fun, in fact, that I didn't mind boarding for 7 hours hahaha!

Soooo..

You guys do know about Kanye's breakdown on twitter, right? No? Well! What happened was that he was ranting in his tweets, then all of a sudden, it was almost like he had an emotional breakdown! Basically, he felt bad that harsh words like "Asshole" started being associated with his name. Type it out on google search and Kanye West will pop up. Now, Kanye West is a musician, and he makes music for people to enjoy them. Since that "I'ma let you finish.." stint with Swift, West feels like listeners can no longer fully enjoy his music because they associate his work with what he did. He feels like when people hear his songs, they don't think about the emotion or the inspiration behind it, they don't think about how this song can bring back some of their memories, or how this song can aid in imagining what their futures will be like. Instead, people think "Kanye wrote this song. God, he's such an ass for what he did to Taylor Swift."

Now, Kanye being an artist, he's distraught. Looking at it through an "artist"'s perspective, he just felt the need to express and not diss Swift. He said, "I'ma let you finish..." so his intent wasn't to disrespect her, but rather to be heard by his peers that his choice was Beyonce. Unfortunately, everyone can and did take it in the worst (and most obvious) way--he was seen as the man who slapped a little girl's ice cream cone to the ground.

He felt so bad, he wrote a song for Swift, and if she doesn't wanna sing it, then he will because the song is too beautiful to be left unsung.

His breakdown's bottomline? If you can no longer enjoy my music, then I will no longer make music.

THEN!!

During the recent MTV VMA's, Taylor Swift performed her new song "Innocent" from her new album "Speak Now". Many believe that the song was directed at Kanye West. Read up the lyrics:



"Lost your balance on the tight rope/it's never too late to get it back... Today is never too late to be brand new... Every one of us has messed up too. I hope you remember today's never too late...to be friends with you....You're still an innocent."

What say you? :)

Just Some RT30 Songs and How They Got In

Hey guys! Just a quick last post...I'm supposed to be resting today because I was rushed to the ER last night due to food poisoning. Anyways! Decided to let you guys in on some of the ways songs get into the chart and the polls :)

Charice feat. Iyaz - Pyramid
This song became really popular because Charice is a filipina and her first international single featured Iyaz. Pinoy Pride got Pyramid more votes than the number one song on the chart even before her song was added to the polls. She then debuted at number 1.

Colbie Caillat - I Never Told You
This song was on the playlist for a while, and once everyone noticed it already, votes started coming in through the phones, the textlines, and the yahoo messenger. Then messages were posted on the Cbox, asking for the song to be added to the polls. RT30 team did a tally and found that the song garnered enough votes through phone, text, and calls to be able to get in the charts.

These next few songs ALL got into the chart WITHOUT being added to the polls first. They got enough votes to get into the chart ON THEIR OWN.
The Bird and The Bee - Heard It On The Radio

Allison Iraheta - Scars

Mamas Gun - Finger On It

Bruno Mars - Just The Way You Are

Rihanna - Rockstar 101

Eminem - Not Afraid

Iyaz - Solo

David Cook - Bar-Ba-Sol

Then they're added to the polls. But since I don't want people unhappy and I want to give everyone a fair chance, I have added David Archuleta's Something About Love to the polls. Since I wanna make sure everyone's clear about it, too, I will post a screencap of exactly how many votes it gets by the end of the week. If it gets enough, you'll hear it next Friday on the countdown, but if it doesn't get in, then you guys will just have to do what I've been telling you to: GET MORE FANS TO VOTE. Simple as that.

Also, David Archuleta fans are more than welcome to visit me at the station, just so you know exactly how many calls I get for the rest of the songs on the chart. :)

Okay gaiz, gotta rest now. My meds are making me sleepy hahaha!

Oh, Cruel People

So, automatically, when the song that you love doesn't get enough requests to get into the polls, I have favoritism and I'm not updated. I love you guys so much ;)


You all are such lovely people!

Lemme set things straight..


All the other songs are on the chart because I get votes from the phone, textline, this website, and the yahoo messenger on my shift, and the other jocks get the votes during different times of the day. So it's not that I have favoritism or that I'm not updated, Thea and Joshua. It's that you guys are the only ones actively voting for Archie. I don't care about Linkin Park and Archie fans over facebook. If those thousands of fans aren't voting here, then they aren't getting in. If Archie is on the other countdowns on other stations, then they're obviously voting THERE, but they aren't voting HERE. If you want Archie to get on the chart so much, then get MORE people to vote.

If I had favoritism, then Charice wouldn't have debuted at number 1. I don't like Charice, and I don't like Iyaz. I don't like Sara Bareilles either, but she's in the top spots :p If I had favoritism, then the chart would look soooo different lol.

Tell you what, gather all your Archie fans and come over to the station. I'd love to meet you guys, Thea and Joshua and JJ. When you get to the station, I'll show you how I gather my votes so you see that I'm in to way cheating :) Anyone who comes to the station and asks, actually. I've had some Cookistas over and some Glamberts, too. They were soooo many! You Archie fans come to the station and we'll talk ;)

EDIT:

Okay, just to satisfy everyone, I'll put Something About Love on the polls so you guys can start voting for it. After a week (which is when I check the poll results to make the chart), I will take a screenshot of how many votes a few songs got just so everyone is informed.

Go, start voting!

EDIT 2:


This is both a bad and good example LOL

Bad because you HAVE to listen to RT hahahaha~! And it's a good example of exactly what I'm talking about. You have to get more people to listen to RT so more people can vote for your choice song. If this person listened to RT, then that'll be one more fan to add to the people voting for Archie, see?
