A-Z: Z

Lyssa's Log: Zootopia. So my friends went and saw Zootopia in theaters the other night. She said it was a good movie and that she really liked it. My favorite band also went to see it and they said it was good and decided to do a cover of one of the songs from the movie, Try Everything by Shakira. I'm looking forward to seeing this movie. From what I understand, its about a new rabbit police officer who wants to fit in and fight crime. Apparently nothing goes right and she gets help from an annoyed fox. I don't really get a whole lot from trailers! Shakira stars in the movie too, I believe she's a gazelle. Zootopia looks like a really good one, and from what I've seen from the trailers, its awfully funny! Who else went to see this movie? And if you haven't, do you want to? Ya know what else looks like a good one? The Jungle Book. And Captain America: Civil War. I can't believe we're closing out A-Z, Its been such a fun activity. Well, Peace Out!

Lyssa's Log: Yuck! We all know that some food can be gross, brussel sprouts, broccoli, radiators, carpet cleaner...I'll stop there. Everyone dislikes at least one kind of food. I don't like ravioli. Kristin doesn't like any vegetables or fruit. Robbie doesn't like potatoes. Xander doesn't like spicy tuna. Mom doesn't like brussel sprouts. Dad doesn't like tomatoes. What don't you like? What food can you not stand? You may have one food from every food group. If you had to eat your favorite food and ONLY your favorite food, how long could you go without losing taste for it? My favorite food is pickled okra, so i think I could go about 2 or 3 months. What's your favorite food? Favorite meal? Favorite drink? How long can you stand it before saying yuck? I think I'd make it about 2 months before saying yuck to pickled okra and milk. Peace Out!

Lyssa's Log: Xtra special! I went to my 4th concert last night and it was AWESOME! I went to see Home Free, the world's first and only country A Capella band. I saw them in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the Cox Business Center!  I got to say hi and hug my favorite member, hug the tenor's girlfriend, the bass' girlfriend, the newest member and I got to highfive the merch guy Nate! I enjoyed this very much! I got to hang with Chance (the newest member) for 15 minutes! He and the rest of the band signed a packet of brown gravy for me! I amused the bass, Tim, slipping my glasses on and off and making a squeaking sound while I did it. I conversed with the beatboxer, Adam, about movies and my being short. I was very happy with this show! They are a bunch of amusing dorks. I gave Chance an odd compliment. I said "Hey Chance! Can I give you an odd compliment? You is like a broken skunk, you do not stink." He got a kick out of that! I gave Austin's girlfriend a plastic cow, her favorite animal is cow. These guys are seriously fun and talented creatures. Adam hit new low notes that made my necklace vibrate so much that it was jumping and floating off my shirt! My family and I got to take pictures with their tour bus Waldo and my sister and I took a couple intermission selfies! Peace Out!

Lyssa's Log: WINTER JAM!!!!! I experienced my first Winter Jam on March 13, 2016 at the Tulsa BOK center! The bands were: We Are Messengers, New Song, Matthew West, Crowder, Lauren Daigle, Red, Sidewalk Prophets, Stars Go Dim, KB-Tedashii-Trip Lee and for King & Country. In my opinion, for King & Country was the best! Red shot fire, Matthew West shot confetti, Crowder played Cotton-eyed Joe and for King & Country was still the most amazing! I am still amazed by some of the little, yet so important things. Like: Joel Smallbone of for King & Country placed his hand on mine and called me love, his brother Luke walked right past me, Luke's line in every performance of It's Not Over Yet "I never knew Tulsa Oklahoma had so much swagger!". I just love these little moments that I will cherish for years. How many Winter Jams have you been to? Which was your favorite band/pairing in that year's line up? Speaking of Winter Jam, Who went to see the new Winter Jam movie? I can't wait! It's called This Is Winter Jam with special guests like Colton Dixon, Tony Nolan and more! I enjoyed the Winter Jam experience, and these bands made it so special, and going with my friends and family made it so much better. I'm sad to see A-Z come to an end, so lets make these last few letters count. Peace Out Y'all!

Lyssa's Log: Very, very interesting! There are many things in this world that are interesting. Some more interesting than others, like bikes are more interesting than chairs and marsh mellows are more interesting than noodles. Camping is interesting,  animals are very interesting and bands are very, very interesting! You can see where my interest lies. I want a lizard, lizards are interesting. I saw my favorite band in the entire world, live! That was awesome! And very interesting. Camping for 10 days with all my friends and family? That was interesting. Very, very, very, very interesting. Violins: interesting. Cellos: very interesting. Cello player Benjamin Backus: extremely interesting and awesome! for King & Country: very, very, very, very, very, very, very, VERY interesting. What did you experience that was very interesting? I have a lot of very interesting stories I could share, but I won't. My father is a very, very, very interesting man, my family is a very, very, very interesting family. I have very, very, very interesting friends. Did I mention that everyone I hang out with was very, very, very interesting? No? Well, they're very, very, very interesting. Hey! I found another very interesting thing! My soup, its very interesting. Tell me what interests you! Peace Out!

Lyssa's Log: Uncles! I have many uncles, Uncle Roger, Uncle Marvin, Uncle Shawn, Uncle Brad, Uncle Jerry, Uncle Rod and that's it.  I love all my uncles, I may not see them all the time,but I still love them just the same. I can't help but pray for Uncle Roger, Uncle Marvin and Uncle Shawn because they're usually traveling. I pray for all my family, because I love them. I have many aunts along with my uncles: Aunt LeAnne, Aunt Eileen, Aunt Julia, Aunt Margie, Aunt Allyson and Aunt Cheryl. Wow, I've really not much to say. We close out the challenge I will have some cool things to talk about starting with W. So um, Peace Out I guess.

Image result for tedashii 2015Lyssa's Log: Tedashii! Tedashii is a christian rapper from Hawaii.  He was born on March 8th, 1977 in Lufkin, Texas . Making him 39.  Believe it or not Tedashii is his real name. Also know as T-Dot, Tedashii Lavoy Anderson has released four solo albums, Kingdom People, Identity Crisis, Blacklight and Below Paradise, on Reach Records. My personal favorite song is Dark Days & Darker Nights featuring Britt Nicole. As I've mentioned before, I saw Tedashii join up with KB and Trip Lee on the Winter Jam 2016 tour. That was a good pairing. I saw Big Hero 6 in theaters with my family and one of the lines from the movie is "Tedashii is here". So when we heard that Tedashii would be at Winter Jam, me and my dad instantly said "Tedashii is here!" I think they should have introduced him that way at Winter Jam, but sadly they didn't. My brother Robbie likes his song Bravo. No matter how much I dislike that song, he will play it. But hey, it gets him to be quiet. He also enjoys a song by Family Force Five that Tedashii features in, its called Chainsaw. WARNING: One you've listened to Chainsaw, you won't stop listening to Chainsaw, you also won't stop bowing to the knees and cranking it like a chainsaw. I'll put a link to his song Dark Days & Darker Nights with Britt Nicole. Please check out his music, I think you'll enjoy it. Peace Out! Tedashii - Dark Days, Darker Nights ft.Britt Nicole (Lyrics) - YouTube
