I can’t say I am a huge fan of Kanye West. Which is a shame, because he is probably quite a talented artist (sans autotune). But I am a fan of his blog posts, and the repercussions they inspire.
First there was operation humble kanye, orchestrated by the inimitable Steven Colbert (my hero), and now Kanye Webst Week, a homage to all 2.0 related madness by the great man himself. Now, one may argue that Kanye is just misunderstood genius (in fact, i think he argues this all the time), but even he has alluded to the fact that his ego needs to be reined in somewhat. It’s nice to know that all egos are susceptible to audit. Especially as I now work with some particularly big ones. The power of the web will potentially render all as equal (you can’t win, Kanye).
Can’t we all just be nice and polite, people, and don’t you know that TYPING IN CAPS MAKES IT SEEM LIKE YOU ARE SHOUTING?
In other genius, remix and rap related news…
Probably better than Kanye. Yes, I went there.
