ESPN the Magazine Fantasy Football Edition

This is a nice cover and looks like a cool photo shoot. I might have to pick up Arian Foster in my Fantasy League this year.

Listening to your heart

I've been reading The Alchemist on and off for the last week. It has a lot to do with personal journey, goals, destiny, etc. I wanted to share an excerpt of this one page in particular though:

"Everyone on earth has a treasure that awaits him," his heart said. "We, people's hearts, seldom say much about those treasures, because people no longer want to go in search of them. We speak of them only to children. Later, we simply let life proceed, in its own direction, toward its own fate. But, unfortunately, very few follow the path laid out for them–the path to their Personal Legends, and to happiness. Most people see the world as a threatening place, and, because they do, the world turns out, indeed to be a threatening place.

"So, we, the hearts, speak more and more softly. We never stop speaking out, but we begin to hope that our words won't be heard: we don't want people to suffer because they don't follow their hearts."

"Why don't people's hearts tell them to continue to follow their dreams?" the boy asked the alchemist.

"Because that's what makes a heart suffer most, and hearts don't like to suffer."

From then on, the boy understood his heart. He asked it, please, never to stop speaking to him. He asked that when he wandered far from his dreams, his heart press him and sound the alarm. The boy swore that every time he heard the alarm, he would heed its message.

I went to this cool pizza spot in Brooklyn this past weekend. They have all types of special "pies." If you're in the neighborhood, check it out.

Vocabulary, Sounds and Fonts

Since I've been making beats, I've seen the parallels between having a range sounds, having a good vocabulary, and having a collection of fonts: They're all vital to better expressing yourself.
