numb3rs, by Ran

some numbers for you to digest...

10 more weeks until the release of my next album. (there is a clue included in this blog somewhere)

8 more weeks of school.

8 days until the end of the NBA Season.

7 days until the release of Year Zero by Nine Inch Nails.

also, 7 days til April 17, the last day to file your taxes.

6 days until 145 years to the day that Abraham Lincoln signed an act abolishing slavery in the District of Columbia.

5 number of spam comments I get on average per day. I DON'T CARE who's spying on me, I DON'T want your free iPhone, and I DON'T CARE about your show that's 1000000000000000000000000000000 miles away, and you're darn right SIZE MATTERS!

4 albums in my rotation right now: Che Grand's Fixtape, K-Os' Atlantis, Redman's Red Gone Wild, and some cuts from my new jawn.

3 GB. the size of my iPod Nano. What was I thinking?? this can't even hold 1/4 of the songs I have on my computer... selling on Craigslist as we speak.

2 weeks suspension recieved by Don Imus after racist and sexist comments on Rutgers' female basketball team. (about a lifetime short if you ask me)

1 day since a new mode was added to online play in GEARS OF WAR-- Annex!! (Halo Players--it's like Crazy King of the Hill.). sweet!

0- Executions in AZ since 2000, until next week:
Now 50, Robert Comer was convicted in 1988 of killing a fellow Apache Lake camper during a 1987 crime spree during which he also raped another camper after tying up her boyfriend. Besides the first-degree murder and armed robbery conviction for the shooting death of Larry Pritchard, Comer also was convicted in Maricopa County Superior Court of sexual assault, armed robbery, kidnapping and aggravated assault for the attacks on the female camper and her boyfriend.

and in the spirit of numbers, here's an oldie but goodie for you to digest while you wait for the newness...

The life of a teacher/MC

well, I must say I'm about at the peak of frustration with my job, but the only thing holding me together is music. I'm working on this new project, pretty dope I might add, meeting some great folks out here in Phoenix, but the job, as I feared, is not quite all its cracked up to be. I know I came here for a reason, and now I'm realizing that it might not be to teach. But who knows...still early in the game (I've been here 7 mos now), but I didnt think it'd be this rough still.

I miss Philly...except when I read about the 100+ murders going on out there. I'll be back in June.

Back to writing.
