Find Me On:
Giving off a big time mid-90s, band-nobody’s-heard-of video vibe.
Im confused. It sounds like he’s only going to be really committed to this for 22 days, then he’s gonna only keep doing it if it’s easy. Which would mean there is a very real possibility that he is going to shit all over his friends theory when he has a big mac after 30 days.
CGMS obviously stands for Country Gramma’ Middle School. Your rules do not apply.
Sounds like this kid might be a gummer. Wait a minute… Michael_??
Eh, it’s kinda catchy. Not “Paper Planes” catchy.
Shut up, dude.
And Christmas is here.
Too bad, but I’d rather them go out on a high note than release crappy record after crappy record and me gradually not care anymore (looking at you Weezer).
Not so sure, I’ve heard stories of Deal and Frances not getting along very recently.
Ew man, bummer. Fingers crossed they can find some good chemistry with someone. Really dug their new EP. Advancing years hurt a lot of acts, hopefully they can work it out.
This doesn’t even make sense.
So wait, is Child Rape a good thing? Now I’m all confused.
Wow, the Gauntlet was just thrown down… hard.
But it’s all kind of pointless because North Brooklyn sucks. South Brooklyn all day and all night.
This will probably get vociferously downvoted, but I laughed.
I wait with bated breath.
The thing about Kanye that I can’t seem to add up is what he is trying to work towards. For really amazing artists, it is all about the art. Mozart, Michelangelo, Shakespeare the thing that drove them was their own work. But Kanye states in this interview and in others that his music is simply a tool of his greater goal, a department in the mega corporation of his true genius. He talks about product being the all important and comparing himself to Jobs and Disney. But those men had a vision that their products were born from, a clear goal. Kanye seems to desperately be trying to work towards the end game of having this vast empire but not real vision for it to come out of. He may have industry to match Jobs or Disney (well, no he doesn’t) but his real problem is he doesn’t have any real purpose to build around, so much of his satisfaction and motivation seems to come from outside influence and media attention rather than an internal artistic passion. In that way he is kind of like Hughes, who bounced around from one over the top project to another looking for his great purpose. The main difference between Hughes and Kanye is that Hughes only cared about the project for the projects sake. he truly loved his work, he was consumed by it. Kanye only cares about most of these projects as far as it will build his legacy and his wallet. But for that to make him relevant, he needs to be building to something BIGGER, and I don’t think he really has any idea what that is.
This comparison doesn’t really work, is stupid, and also… is pointless.
Child Rapist is definitely not a good look for your emo front man.
Kanye is starting to seem more and more like a less sympathetic version of Stringer Bell with his struggles to “Make It” in the corporate world.
The fact that you can even seriously have the thought the “Nigga” has a non racial context speaks volumes about how ignorant some people in America are. Given your perspective, perhaps Solange is one of them.
“You know more than anyone niggas love drama.” I know you’re most likely not a reader of Stereogum, Solange, but probably shouldn’t make statements on twitter that sound a whole hell of a lot like a general put down of your entire race. Particularly when its already a stereotype. Just putting that out there.
Hopefully it doesn’t hurt smaller stores too much.
Then you need to realize that all this stuff you’re talking about has, wait for it… nothing to do with this video and maybe you should drop it.
Every person associated with Glee should’ve left that show two years before they did. Except for maybe the nerdy gay kid, that show is probably always going to be the high water mark for him.
I’m not sure if you figured this out yet, but you missed the point.
