Would you read?

"Listen if they wrote a book on your life you think anybody will read it?" - A.Z.

I was 14 when I first heard that quote, I couldn't fully understand how relevant this would be in my life right now. I first interpreted A.Z. as just using his Witt to make a statement, but the more I thought about it your life has to be very entertaining for a person to sit through a large collections of thoughts and ideas.I know if a large number of people wrote a book, it would likely go unread. I'm not saying that I'm the world's most important person nor am I saying my life is that dull I just feel like I also think about people I encounter everyday, majority of the people have very dull energy and such non charismatic features about them. Television has become a staple in today's society because everyone wants to see, Visualizing and Imagination are pretty much a thing of the past. This media age has turned us into very nosy people, wanting to track and follow a persons every move and what better way than to do with a television. Think to yourself what if a book about you could captivate the same reaction out of a person the watch they watch television. Honestly since I thought about that the quote the other day, I been trying to live my life as if someone would write a book about me someday. Meaning capitalizing on important moments, doing exciting things and not falling victim to a regular dull routine. Hopefully someday I will be able to tell whether or not people would read my book. Now my question to you is would someone read yours?

That AZ quote...

Is that off the AZ CD with "New York - New York" on it? You know the cut with Rae and GFK? That's the AWOL CD.

This isn't from Doe or Die is it?

Or is it from AZiatic.

Let me know asap. I will be thinking about this for a while.

Cool.

I had been thinking about this all day.
