Where I'm From

As we travel down highway 101 the scenic route...

I had a conversation the other day with my brother about the lack of love Arizona gets. We just had the Super Bowl and FBR all in one weekend. The valley for a few days felt like Vegas even if it was for 4 days.

I'll start with the bad side of living in the Phoenix area:
-3 months of dry heat, but you get used to it.
-Lack of entertainment in the valley. It seems that hardly any artists come here other than for a major tour.
-Scottsdale is like a fake LA. Its LA for people who cant afford to live in LA.
-Lack of shopping. We have no "streetwear" shops which can be a good or bad thing. People live to go to the mall out here.
-NO hip hop scene at all, a place like Cinespace could be huge out here.
The Goodness of living in the Phoenix area:
-We are 45 minutes on a plane from Vegas and LA. Both plane tickets are cheap.
-Summer, yeah its hot but thats an excuse for girls in bikinis. Pool parties are where you will see some of the baddest chicks on the planet.
-Scottsdale its expensive, but again some of the baddest chicks in the country at these clubs.
-FBR and Suns games...women, women, women!!!
-Cost of living is dumb cheap out here. Yeah you may live in the city but your paying $1500 a month for an apartment the size of my room. That $1500 out here can get you a 4 bedroom house out here with plenty of room. Yes, I know its a trade off.
-Last but not least its February and youre in The North Face's 2008 collection. I'm in this weather.
See you in February 2009 for the NBA-All Star game.
