I am proud to say that today I finished the country music half marathon today!
13.1 miles of pure accomplishment
Hahaha I honestly didnt realize what I was gettin myself into. This was my first marathon over 3 miles haha, and it didnt set in until I got dressed and ready this morning at freakin 4 sumthin AM!! Dad Lazenby challenged Grady and I to run it since b4 we went to LA this january. When we got to Centennial Park this morning and saw all the 30,000 other runners lining up, then it OFFICIALLY hit me. I must say tho, this has been such a valuable, rewarding experience. I finished! I did it! Mind over matter!
I thought I'd have a buncha poetic stuff to say about finishing, and how I've grown from the experience, but its just too soon I guess. Im really proud of myself and thankful to Dad and Mom Lazenby for gettin me and Grady. Check these AWFUL pics i took on my blackberry during the run haha. Oh and congrats to everybody else that finished as well
As Grady, Sir Lazenby, and I prepare to spend the bulk of the summer traveling around Colombia, I've been doin a lot of research on the country, some of the slang, and the culture. Last Friday we listened to a few Colombian artists we'd never heard of. None of us can even IMAGINE the type of music we are gonna make when we're there. The fact that im actually gonna be in Colombia hasnt actually hit me yet, and I dont think it will til I start packing... or maybe on the airplane... or maybe not even til im there! Lol who knows. However I DO know that this is gonna change our lives dramatically. Ive never been out of the country, not to mention I've never written original music for advertisements, documentaries, films or anything. And I'm doin all of that plus more. So please believe i am on a permanent high on level TEEEEENNNN. I been tryna polish up my Spanish and everything! Ya boi gon be COLD with my Spanish by the time i get back! hahaha
When we were listening to Colombian music on YouTube, we came across a fairly popular rap group from Colombia called ChocQuibTown that all of us really enjoy. They kinda remind me of a Colombian Fugees haha. Hopefully we'll get the chance to work with them. I love their song "Somos Pacifico" and the video is sick. Check it out
Yo! the other day me, my gf Henna, and my boy RJ was chillin at my crib watchin TV and we were JUST talkin about actor Terry Crews when his new Old Spice commercial came on. If u havent seen it yet, u gotta check it out, its already one of my favs. Old Spice has been KILLIN it with their commercials since the Superbowl in my opinion. And Terry Crews makes lookin that muscular SO FUNNY hahaha its the total opposite of sex appeal cuz dude is a FOOL. Henna cant stand him! She said he look gross lol. I been a Terry Crews fan since the movie White Chicks came out forever ago. Oh and another random fact, my parents are friends with his wife (?? thats wut i said). ANYWAY, check out the commercial.
So... look at where my Lexus search has brought me
To the land of the unthinkable
A 2012 Lexus LFA supercar, priced at a reasonable $375,000 hahahaha. Oh yea, and its ONLY available as a 2-year lease, with the intent to purchase lol. Only 500 are gonna be built worldwide and I'm thinking it might go pretty fast.
SO! Of all the realistic goals I set that people already think are ridiculous, let me go ahead and make an EVEN MORE ridiculous goal. And yup, its this car hahahaha. How long do i have? Well, ASAP. Its already 2010, so I need to be able to spend $400,000 on a car pretty comfortably by 2012. Good thing is that these are made to order and I'll get to specify everything from the interior/exterior to the type of aluminum 10-spoke wheels. Gettin a lil over 200 mph, w/ a V10 engine, and 0-60 in 3.6 seconds, im toooooo hype right about now. I want one lol. Realistic or not, just leave me alone and let me dream big hahaha
Earlier this week, the Nashville Scene's blog, Nashville Cream, posted an article about the GZA performance at MTSU last Wednesday. They gave my band Biscuits and Gravy a pretty dope mention. Check it out:
"Finally, Biscuits N Gravy took the stage to wash away the mediocrity. It's been a hot minute since we've seen Biscuits N Gravy but -- as with the food from which they take their name -- we are never disappointed. Their synth-washed jazz fusion sound paired with Future, one of the city's most reliably entertaining MCs, never ceases to make us smile. Seriously, if you built a fortress out of late-'70s Stanley Clarke records and then gave that fortress the ability to rap, it would sound just like Biscuits N Gravy."
Also, they talked pretty bad about some of the local openers for the show, and they went HARD on the lack of promotion for the event!! LOLOL! Honest journalism is the best.
