“The Warehouse will be offering a preferred viewing area on the lawn at many of the 2004 Dave Matthews Band’s amphitheater shows. Based upon feedback gathered from the Warehouse surveys, we have decided to implement this ticketing improvement that Warehouse members have requested. A limited number of members to this area will be selected to gain access to the Warehouse Preferred lawn area.
A special roped-off section, generally located in a central area of the lawn will be restricted to Warehouse members holding special Warehouse lawn tickets, until intermission. Warehouse Preferred lawn ticket holders will be able to secure a nice vantage point from which to watch the show and a greater opportunity to interact with other Warehouse members.”
Yes yes… one of the best producers alive, as well as someone who brings more to this positive element people call “hip-hop”… Kanye West, has just dropped his “official” debut cd College Dropout.

All-in-all, this album is something different. Made myself listen to it, as well as analyze the damn song (lyrics and beats). I can truly say beats, rhyme, and reason—hands down, one of the best hiphop (solo-artist) debut CD I ever bought and enjoyed in a while (maybe even since wyclef’s Carnival). As he said on MTV, VH1, and BET… go download it wherever/however you can—and if you like it, support…buy it! I guarantee that you will.
well… today, or tonight, is the start of my “track-and-field” workout. just came back from 24, that was dope… 11pm and not a lot of people—sweet. i did a lot of pondering on my way to the place, as well on my way back from it. one major thought that i did remember was… working out isn’t hard at all. its making yourself want to go, get dressed for it, and drive to the place that is. after doing the workout itself, its driving back to your place, taking a shower, and calming down your nerves to go to sleep. meanwhile, the morning after, the hardest thing is not to be sore, or at least not to walk like it. i’m glad i got psyched even though it was pouring big-fat rain drops outside; flash-flood warning and all in the OC. tomorrow, shit—i’ll be walking like a duck.
in other news, the mammoth trip left me with a sweet taste in my mouth; and making me want to get some more of it. a few suggestions have been made by people that there might be another trip or so …soon. i myself would like to go again fo’shizzle. that’ll be dope if i can go on the 29th of february… geez, that day doesn’t come often; and how many times can you say that you boarded on feb. 29th …you know?!?! if you would like to roll, or going to be up there sometime soon, drop a line.
from my mind to yours, …eat, drink and be merry! …i mean live healthy! (too)
