Long Way Home

So this Sundays the day Im doing the Los Angeles marathon. I think Im ready to go, five months of training and about 450 miles running later. Started having some leg problems this week, which sucks, but Im gonna suck it up and do it anyway.

Some people have asked me why in the world Id want to do a marathon. I think it makes perfect sense. Its gonna hurt, yeah, a lot, yeah, but you gotta be a masochist to be in rock n roll, right? Think about it. All the late nights, the hangovers, the jet lag, the critics, the bad reviews, the rejection compared to all that, this race is a cinch.

I want to thank everybody who has donated to the innocence project, the charity Ive chosen to run for. Theyre really worthwhile and super appreciative of what you all have done. It means a lot to me also that you guys would donate to this worthy charity on my behalf.

And, if you havent made a contribution yet, youve still got a day or two to do it.

Thanks and well talk to you after the weekend"


hope his leg heals up

I'm not going to make a donation. Fact is that I only like to donate to increase nature's good. It's not like I don't support the project, it's a good thing Dexter's doing, but I just support other charities more. And donating to it just because Dexter asks us too, isn't going to do it for me.

amen
i think it's great that Dexter is doing this to sopport something that he really believes in and is new and different but is just doesn't make me wanna do it (which by the way will cost me three times what us citizens pay)
still... run Dexter, ruuuun.........

All I want
All I need
Always lies just out of reach
I've been coming up empty

I ran as fast as I can run
I pushed as hard as anyone
But still there's nothing for me

(And I want)
I've tried as hard as I can
(And I need)
I've taken all I can stand
(And I fall)
But I am running a race
Against Oprah
Against Oprah, yeah

Burning out, strung along
Now my sorrow is my song
My whole world is half-hearted

For my pain I have none
After all is said and done
Now I'm back where I started

(And I want)
I've gone as far as I can
(And I need)
I've taken all I can stand
(And I fall)
But I am running a race
Against Oprah
Against Oprah, yeah

(And I want)
I've tried as hard as I can
(And I need)
I've taken all I can stand
(And I fall)
But I am losing the race
Against Oprah
Against Oprah, yeah

Against Oprah

Well I think Dexter indirectly told us that they've been feeling kind of disappointed with the success they didn't have with Splinter and GH...

Well, any artist, no matter who they are, would be disappointed if not very many people like their work.

I know that. However some people insisted that they were ok. My personal opinion is that if they do not get a huge succes with a brand new album, they'll split right after it.

I highly doubt that. If that was true, they would have given up a long time ago.

Okay.. Forget what I've said. Dexter just wrote that because he's got nothing else to say. It's just decoration.

Well. I must be really wrong and misunderstanding things.

A very good CD though not well-accepted by people (Splinter).

Right after, a GH.... A re-releasing of an old song. (DM)

A website out-of-date. Only journals are updated.

Oh, yeah. Everything is just fine.

Splinter is Gold! and I'm sure he will be Platinum. (America only)
The complete music video collection is gold.

I guess it's ok.

Greatest Hits got to #8 in the charts... that's DAMN good for a compilation.

I think he ment it in general, I know this has been said already, but with every new album, from every band, there is good and bad reviews....If he ment is seriously then offspring probably won't have last much past Smash.

Remember, no matter who good it sold, Smash wasn't very well liked by critics, because all critics are cynical assholes.

I bet he's gonna sleep and rest the day, and write to us day after that. :D But I hope he will write to us about the throwing up's and all those nice feelings that comes when you run over 40km's.

and wanna know if he came up with a new song while running :D

Gayman

I really think he had other things in mind when he ran....after 30km anyway. :D

Gayman
03-19-2006, 03:27 PM
Or his mind wasn't moving at all. That's what I think. :D
