Posts Tagged ‘Kanye West’

Was reading through some old posts back in 2008…

…and I didn't realized how much I missed kanyeuniversecity.com until now. Remember that place? Kanye would post random crap on his blog from sites like Selectism, Hypebeast, Yanko Design… places that I still go to today. The man basically inspired me to blog the way I did back then. It's kind of a shame that we don't see that part of Kanye much anymore.

A Public Service Announcement

Go out and buy the new Kanye West album next week. Seriously. Don’t just download the leak… but do it anyways because it might convince you to buy it after you listen to it. It’s just that damn good. The man has not slowed down at all, the guy is still that brilliant fucking wordsmith that we’ve all associated him with. If you want a taste of what this lyrical genius can dish out, listen to ‘I Am A God.’ ‘Black Skinhead’ is also very good and deserving of that 3 minutes of your fucking precious time.

OK, I’m done circle jerking with the rest of the internet now.

Correction

…but this is even more crazy.

I don’t normally post multiple times on the same day but this an exception, a necessary one at that.

It was a good day

I’ve never been compelled to comment on a movie that I’ve watched, mainly because I lack the perspective and intellect to carefully articulate something on the film. This practice is done as to avoid the scorn and laughter from movie aficionados who can only view such posts as uneducated and amateur. But screw convention, I’m going to do it today.

I watched Gran Torino tonight, and I have to ask that everyone watch it. It was a bit of a downer of a movie to finish off the night, but nevertheless it was an amazing movie. Not only did I expand my vocabulary of racial slurs against asians and colours, but I also realized that Clint Eastwood – retiring from acting after this – can create a movie that can just touch you in ways that even an idiot movie goer like me can understand – him kicking the crap out of punk-ass asian gang bangers didn’t hurt either. I know a lot of my friends may disregard this movie as looking a bit too masculine for their tastes but I digress: it’s got a little bit of something for everybody and it needs to be watched. I hope Eastwood reaps the rewards for this.

And finally, today was the day I went out and entered into the world of high-end fashion by buying a parka. Fashionable, in the sense that not only the street kids in the magazine ads wear something similar to what I purchased but also high-end in that it cost an arm and a leg to get. But it was worth it: no more cold afternoons up at SFU, where one could claim as evidence for the north pole shifting its center square on our fair mountain school. Thanks to the boys from Hart and Sole, and thanks to Sam for taking the picture.

One more thing: The new The Killers album is dope. I highly encourage you all to take a listen. The illest album by The Killers I’ve heard yet. Also, there’s some dope Kanye West remixes put out by Benzik, Plain Pat and Mr. West himself. I’m personally loving the remakes for Flashing Lights, Love Lockdown and Workout Plan, with Workout Plan getting some bonus points for mixing some Smash Mouth in there. Old school!

There’s some more crazy stuff to add to your playlists.

No Substance

Hello all. I realize that I haven’t been writing much lately, most of my posts being limited in text and more so on random ass images in order to compensate over my lack of writing ability – even my prof winged an email to me over the break telling me that I suck. Unfortunately, this one of those posts. But don’t worry, hopefully this post will a) be much more funnier than whatever I could come up with and b) be worth more your time than any of my drivel. I blame Yeezy for this new lazy blogging approach that I’ve taken up.

Class

I am a man of simple tastes, though ever since I’ve discovered Mr. West’s blog I’ve been exposed to a certain aspect of today’s culture that I have begun to consider investing in. From beautiful women to just pure awesome, the allure of high culture has acted as a siren song to this young slob. I cannot resist.

The greatest thing I’ve seen so far? This glass bed. I will be king if I ever set my ass on this fine piece of furniture. Impractical? Dangerous? Probably. But fucking dope? You bet your ass.

Aww yeah

Aww yeah

New York New York

Under normal circumstances this really shouldn’t deserve its own post, but hey, I’m so addicted to this new fangled thing here that I’ll write just about anything to make a new post.

Anyways, uploaded the New York pictures my Dad took this summer, which you can see the thumbnails for on the sidebar. They look absolutely amazing, but unfortunately I couldn’t put them all into the widget as the maximum was 10. In the next few days, I’ll see to it that the rest of the pictures can be seen. Dad did good here.

On a completely unrelated note, I just can’t get enough of the new Kanye West album after a week or so since it dropped. ‘Welcome to Heartbreak’ is the new audio orgasm around here, a pleasurable sound to be sure.
