Western States Rally Championships
Posted 2003-03-15 by Staff
With the Gravel Crews new technical partnership with MTX & Streetwires for the Ford Escort ZX2 the crew is taking the next step in racing the Western States Rally Championships, the stepping stone to national level rally racing.
With this technical partnership news not quite news yet, the team headed off while most of the country is under snow and the road trip north came under snowfall itself just outside of Los Angeles on the Grapevine freeway. This did not delay the crew one bit as they made way for the chance to race for the first time on the famous terrain of the northwest Doo Wops events. It rained all the way up, rained some more, and rained all the way home – but was a fun event to drive and support team was happy, as the car did not incur any damage.
This Doo Wop Washington event is two separate events in one weekend of the ten events on the WSRC schedule for the year and the Gravel Crew racked up some good points to start the season off with a solid start.

Sexy and Talented Alexia Lei
Posted 2003-03-12 by Prescilla
LOCATION: Seattle, Washington
BIRTHDATE: February 25th 1981
ETHNICITY: Guamanian and Mexican
STATUS: Long term relationship
DRESS SIZE: 1-3
PM: Hey what's up Alexia! Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to do this interview with me. So where should we start? Hmm....Probably everyone is wondering how you got into modeling.
Alexia: Actually my best friend was the one that got me interested. He would take me with him to shows and I just saw what the industry had to offer and thought that I may have something to contribute. I was approached at one of the local shows- Extreme Autorama by the girls *ahem, Prescilla* that were heading up the SZX.US, site launch.
PM: How long have you been modeling and where could we expect to see you next?
Alexia: Ive only been in this since about February. I will be at Hot Import Nights Seattle 2003 in March. I am featured on a few sites, also competing to be the new model.
PM: Do you feel any anxiety or excitement before making an apperance at a major event?
Alexia: Yes! Of course! haha... I get butterflies right before an event. I get really excited and nervous, because anytime you put yourself out there- there are going to be mixed opinions about you... and that always makes me nervous.
PM: Making an appearance and doing a photoshoot are two different things. Which one do you prefer more and why?
Alexia: I prefer making appearances. Photoshoots are always fun, but when you get to make an appearance, you get the chance to mingle and meet new people. I like to be out there talking to fans (or potential fans) to see what they think and want to see next. Feedback is always welcome!
PM: Okay enough about modeling... Lets get to know more of the personal side of you. Describe a typical day for Ms. Alexia Lei.
Alexia: Haha... where do we start?! Ok- I wake up at 5:30AM to get ready for work... I love my job. I get to work for this great extreme sports company and the benefits are great. I manage a department that handles special promotions for the company. Pretty tough job- but excitiing because everyday poses a new challenge. From there, I head home to see my dog. His name is Paco and hes a white chiuaua. Soo adorable. I usually clean house, start something for dinner, and then get on the computer to answer emails and work on my getting my graphics and web design skills better. I update a few sites for friends and have a few pages on communities of my own that I try to update at least a few times a week. I really enjoy doing graphics and web design. I will be going to school to get my degree here shortly. Then, its off to bed... gotta get some rest to start the new day. Boring... I know! haha... Weekends are usually more exciting. I'll head out to a favorite club with a few of my closest friends to dance the night away...
PM: If you could pick a favorite outfit to where, what would it be?
Alexia: a white tank top and a pair of my significant others sweatpants. So comfortable... hahah
PM: In your opinion, what do you think makes a woman sexy?
Alexia: Personality and sense of humor. A girl could be hot, but if she has nothing to say, what a waste. ;)
PM: Hmm... You have an exotic look, may I ask what nationality you are?
Alexia: Im half Guamanian and half Mexican.
PM: Wow! That's a pretty exotic mix. So how was it growing up being a biracial child?
Alexia: It wasnt really an issue for me. I grew up in a military family, so we traveled a lot. Many of the kids I was around were in the same situation, so we had a diverse group of kids. I was really lucky to be able to experience the different types of backgrounds that that environment provided. I never really had an issue with being biracial.
PM: When growing up, what cartoon could we expect to have your eyes glued on?
Alexia: Speed Racer! I loved that cartoon! haha... And you cant forget about Tom and Jerry.
PM: Did you have any celebraity crushes as a teenager? Like New Kids On the Block or Zach from Save By The Bell?
Alexia: Oh no you didnt go there... haha... Actually, I had the biggest crush on Zach from Saved By the Bell! And I loved New Kids on the Block. Jordan was my favorite.... sooo embarassing... haha...
PM: What was the most craziest thing you have done on a dare?
Alexia: Hmm.... have to think hard on that one. Id have to say- there was this one time... at band camp... haha just kidding... but really- I was playing video games with a friend- and we always make bets that the loser has to do something crazy and embarrassing. Well, I lost that round of Mario Kart, and my best friend at the time had this fixation with making me flash people.... sooo she dared me to flash the guy in the drive thru at McDonalds. (keep in mind- Im only 14 so lets just say that I hadnt been blessed with much as of yet) So we pull up to the window and I pull up my shirt- and it was one of my friends brothers. How embarrassing. At least he got a laugh out of it. -Thats the craziest I usually get. ;)
PM: Any closing remarks you'd like to say to your fans?
Alexia: I would just like to say thank you to those of you that really do support me in what I believe in and do. I really appreciate all of the positive AND negative feedback that I get from fans. It helps to know what people really think. Thanks to my closest friends for loving me enough to tell me when I look tore up before I take a picture and before I post one up. I really love you guys! Come check out my site www.alexialei.com! Thanks also Prescilla for doing this interview on me =).
PM: I would like to thank you once again for taking time to do this interview with me. Good luck with everything!

Ring The Alarm - Hip Hop Under Attack
Posted 2003-03-12 by urbankidd
What is hip hop. Is it the earthy rhythm spoken verses of the Fugees? Or the bust-a-move beats of the break dancing era .hmm…or maybe both. Is that possible? Either way the essence of true hip has definitely taken a different tune in today’s urban lifestyles.
Everywhere u turn, it easy to find artist labeling themselves as hip hop idols. Claiming to live the "hip-hop life" rappers like Ja Rule and Nelly, seem confused in my opinion, into hip hop’s real meaning. Even artist like Eminem, king of controversy himself, claims he’s the truth and a answer to the rap world today. Don’t believe the hype you guys. Eminem is just an image. He’s nothing more than a talented white rapper in the spotlight. The media has found its way to manipulate society into thinking he’s what’s right. Don’t get me wrong, this guy DOES have talent, but is he the answer or just another Elvis.
It took much time to come to my senses on what real hip hop is. To me, it’s the feeling you get through your bones when a track comes on that really reaches you. I’m talking about how it grabs your soul and makes you forget your problems. Its like a drug. It lives in me…and in many of us…but this unbearable mask the entertainment industry has put on us can often blur the real message of music.
Or maybe that’s just me. Maybe I’m the only one who thinks rapper’s theses days have sold out. Rapping about air force ones just doesn’t get it for me. It seems that record companies nowadays manufacture artist, as if they were G.I Joes. If I could change one thing in this world, it would be in hopes people could go back into the roots of hip-hop music. I want them to really take a look into what is really happening, and examine the truth. Don't categorize the real music by the amount of records artist can sell, but rather the meanings of expression they put into their music.

The Falken Tire Drift Showoff was off the chain last Sunday. This event will be remembered as one of the milestones in the history of the Import scene. Everyone was totally stoked on the Japanese drivers coming from Japan to demonstrate this exciting Motorsport.
Props go out to all the sponsors, participants and producers for putting on this spectacular event. Hopefully we'll be able to help put another one on soon in your town. One of our camera people almost got tagged by Koguchi's 240 as he came around the 1st turn. That dude is super sick and really knows how to put on a show. All we can say is kick ass. If you missed this one then better luck next time.
We were kinda bummed that Lance Shimatsu couldn't compete in the contest with his Isuzu Rodeo. Would have loved to see a Rodeo flip from Lance. NOT! Maybe next time Lance.
Somebody spotted a new 2004 BMW 5 series and said that there's a HUD (heads up display) incorporated in the dash. God bless the Germans...except the fascist ones.
Watch out, pretty soon cops will be chasing you with their Big Mexican Wiener...BMW Donates Motorcycles For Pentagon's First Police Motorcycle Unit. BMW of North America, LLC has donated six R 1100 RT-P police motorcycles to the United States Department of Defense to assist the Pentagon Police in establishing its first motorcycle unit.

In reality TV show news, MTV is going to give ex-members of GnR (Slash, Duff, Izzy, Matt) their own show. Maybe they should get a new singer before they tape the show. Plus w/ Slash all sober and Duff getting his MBA how crazy can they still be?
Check out this gay clip from one of our Canuck friendlies.
Mrjonp returns with his official sophomore album “Transology.” Simply put, it takes you on a powerful and uplifting journey of the past, present and future.

The curriculum: Remixes of classic trance tracks like Energy 52’s “Café Del Mar.“ Signature progressive trance sounds of producer Paul Van Dyk. Aggressive driving basslines and old school techno vibes, topped off with emotional female vocals over progressive house rhythms. Welcome to the study of trance music. Check out a clip from the CD.
Here's an image of the 2005 Nissan Skyline set to debut in Japan. 400HP, top speed - 180MPH. Hopefully this will reach our shores as well.
Indie Rockers, check out the Pavement Slow Century DVD. This one chronicles the life and times of Pavement, one of indie rock's greatest band. This 2-disc set comes w/ 2 live performances and all of their videos including alternate versions.
Anyone see Dave Grohl's gf on the Grammys? Man, that guy is one lucky dude. All of the songs on the new record about heart ache was written about her when they were broken up. See, goofy rockers do get the girl...especially if you can sell a couple million records.
If you were harmed in that Great White club fire incident then SHUT THE HELL UP!!! Anyone still listening to Great White let alone go see them at a club deserves to be burned. Def Leppard, now that's a real band.
Check out this Pokemon Hummer before it goes again..and no it's not a picture of Pokemon giving someone a hummer.
