Stop trying to define yourself by what you’re above rather than what you’re about.
stop hating and start enjoying
I burned so many calories playing volleyball, badminton, and swimming that I am still allowed 1800 for the day. I’m going to just have a drink and call it a night though.
Curt Schilling in the booth for the Braves game? Way to ruin an otherwise terrific Fathers Day, ESPN.
I hate to say it, but the new Kanye that leaked - if it is the album - once again confirms that he’s one of the only hip hoppers actually pushing the form, and that his arrogance is not only not entirely unjustified, it may even be essential to his art.
What he said.
fuck that shit. Conan/Pardo/Dana Gould/Patton, all artists pushing the limit while remaining humble. I don’t care how talented you are, don’t be a cock
I don’t see Kanye as arrogant. I see him as being incredibly uncomfortable in his own skin. He works in an art form where arrogance, self braggadocia, and pride is paramount and has been so since the beginning. He reminds me of someone still trying to fit in with a crowd. He is talented and in almost any other field he could just let that talent guide him without having to worry about what others think or how commercially successful his endeavors become. He has an almost childlike innocence. Everybody knows that Beyonce video was better than anything Taylor Swift has ever touched but most everyone also knows that it was a stupid MTV video award and whomever won did not matter. Who thinks they matter? The young and the naive. There’s no arrogance in thinking you should speak up about that, just the misguided passion of the young and naive. (Think of Fiona Apple’s first MTV acceptance speech.) To compare him to those three amazing comedians is apples to oranges. Comedy is a field awashed in humility and self doubt. No one takes the stage in front of a brick wall and talks about cars and chains and money. Rappers do that before they even obtain the cars, the gold, the money. There are people in hip-hop today that are bringing humility and self-doubt to the stage. It is refreshing. I think Kanye is the bridge to that happening in hip-hop. He is straddling the line. But his arrogance and cockiness is tongue in cheek most of the time. Listen to his song ‘Monster’. That is a masters course in hip-hop ego and knowing how monstrous and comical it can be. Sorry I took so long to say this but I am a passionate defender of Kanye West. I think he is on another level of talent that will take years and perspective to truly appreciate its magnitude. There have been many talented people in many fields that behave poorly (much worse than Ye) and it irks me that so many people pile on Kanye. I’ll spare you all my thoughts on why people attack Kanye so quickly and easily when sparring others.
