DJ A TRAK giving DJ lessons to Playboy Bunny?!

"My publicist set up a feature for me this week and she later admitted being scared that I would mail her an anthrax letter. I should really send her flowers instead. Why did she think I wouldn’t like this? I just spent an afternoon with a Playboy playmate. To be specific, Kelly Carrington, Miss October" -A Trak
