The world may be on the brink of World War III (an optimist's hyperbole) but let's talk about how popular Miley Cyrus got off of her VMA performance. On August 25th after Miley’s VMA performance her Google peak rating went from 67 to 100 in less than 24 hours. Meanwhile, during the same period of time the US military moved cruise missiles into position to strike Syria.  France, Great Britain and the USA are now aligning against China, Syria, Russia and Iran (Russia has sent two warships to the Mediterranean), while Syrian President Bashar Assad said his civil war-ravaged country "will defend itself against any aggression" in the face of rising expectations of a punitive military strike by Western powers. President Obama meets with congressional leaders today (Thursday, August 29th) and a strike may be imminent.

Kanye West: 'Beautiful' Soul Or Raging Egomaniac?


I am fascinated by Kanye West on every level. I thought his first two albums, 2004's College Dropout and 2005's Late Registration, were and remain some of the strongest, most diverse and imaginative hip-hop collections of the decade.

As a producer and rapper, his imagination seems limitless — he covers more ground in his cultural references than any other contemporary pop musician under the age of 40. He's also, depending on your point of view, a sensitive soul or an egomaniac of the highest order. At this point, West is like Blue-period Jon

West's new album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, is one of the year's most anticipated albums. And in "Runaway," a nine-minutes-plus opus, West takes himself to task for being an arrogant perfectionist who can "always find something wrong."

"I'm so gifted at finding what I don't like the most," he says, shortly before offering up a toast — in blunt language — to self-centered perfectionists such as himself. Because West knows that, in any given art form, it is not uncommon that one person's self-centered perfectionism is another's acclaimed genius.

"Runaway" was also the taking-off point for a 35-minute avant-garde musical that aired on TV in October. It includes images as varied as a phoenix fallen to earth, ballerinas and an eerie parade whose marchers carry a giant papier-mache bust of Michael Jackson.

As with so much of what West does, describing it makes it sound pretentious or precious — in execution, however, the work has a bristling, poignant yet confrontational energy.

At other points on the album, West diffuses his self-regard so that it becomes universal. In "Lost in the World," West creates a surging soundscape that transports the listener, carrying you along with him as he seems to travel around the world, searching for his place in it. Being "lost in the world," as the song title says, means combining American and African pop rhythms with a sample of the poet-musician Gil Scott-Heron declaiming, "Who will survive in America?"

Scott-Heron placed his question in the context of the oppressed and of conspiracy theories that were being floated at the times about radical groups such as the SDS, the Black Panthers, and the Young Lords. West, appropriating it, applies it to the drama of his own life. You can say it's yet another example of egregious self-aggrandizement. It's also superb music-making.

While Kanye West is very much a man of the pop moment, I think he connects with a very strong strain in American popular music: the musician who cultivates an image that is inseparable from his music — an artist whose work can be enjoyed on its own — yet which is fully completed only when we also form opinions about his public persona, his statements, his actions.

From
Elvis Presley to Bob Dylan to Michael Jackson to Madonna to Bruce Springsteen, pop music has a history of both sincerity and assuming a pose that takes on its own authenticity. This 60-year-old tradition finds its current embodiment most glowingly in Kanye West.

IT'S WORLD AIDS DAY MOTHERFUCKERS!
FUCK BRENDEN
mata_harii
It's WORLD AIDS DAY and guess who is it's most active member of the AIDS club? Blacks,who are only 12 percent of the population, account for nearly half (46 percent) of people living with HIV in the United States. Blacks also account for 45 percent of new HIV infections each year. The rate of new HIV infections for Black men is about six times as high as that of White men. The HIV incidence rate for Black women is about 15 times as high as that of White women. At some point during their lives, one in 16 Black men and one in 30 Black women will be diagnosed with HIV. In conclusion? You better check yo'self before you wr-wr-wr-wreck yo'self, foo.

Martin Freeman may still play Bilbo Baggins!
FUCK BRENDEN

MARTIN FREEMAN AS BILBO BAGGINS?
God, I hope so!
 
Yesterday, the British newspaper The Sun ran a story saying that Martin Freeman (a.k.a. Tim from the original U.K. Office) had to decline an offer (and seven-figure payday) to play Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit movies due to a scheduling conflict: The actor was already committed to shoot the BBC series Sherlock, in which he plays Dr. Watson. That’s all true, but according to sources close to the Hobbit production, it’s not over yet. New Line and MGM, the studios backing the Hobbit films, have since come back to Freeman with a proposed schedule that would allow him to shoot both projects. All parties are currently negotiating a deal.


Good news, right? What do you think? Is Freeman the right guy to play the titular hobbit in Jackson’s next epic trip to Middle Earth? How will Freeman’s Bilbo compare to Ian Holm’s? Whose feet will be hairier?

The flawed and beautiful man that is Kanye West took to twitter to clarify a few things.  Kanye said, "These aren't regular tweets... this is stream of consciousness ... I want you guys to know and feel where my head is at..." and it was evident in reading the tweets that it definitely wasn't regular tweets.


REAL TALK!Collapse )
