Kanye West screen test for Bowfinger remake


NYT had a thing about SNL and Kanye



Keep it together. Keep it Together. Keep it together.

the times article linked to this video of Kanye West on his twitter which has more than 1M views; it was difficult to watch but what I think it boils down to is his people are recommending against him buying back from his label his publishing — i.e. the full money stream if his songs are used in television or movies or commercials. He mentions “fela, marley, ‘pac” — he also says “s-word” which is “slave” which I think has something to do with Prince (the artist formerly not known as Prince) putting out his records independently at the end, to mixed effect.

I don’t think I recognize any Kanye West songs, but I get he has sold in the tens of millions. i get him confused with Jay Z, Puff Daddy and sometimes John Legend.

I am the stupidist and least hip concert promoter and the worlds worst blogger. Oh, Kanye claims that he took the Mensa test and has IQ of 132 or 133 which puts him in “Sigmund Freud mentor range” duly noted. (I think I did that thing in 2nd grade and got similar results but presume I could barely bust triple figs if I put me self thru it againsly I could not even figure out how many permutations of Palo Alto City Council race (!) five candidates for 3 seats, I am saying “10” when maybe it’s “20” or “13”. I could make a model. It would be 10 if it were 5 for 2 seats. Now i have to update this for “platos republic” and “math”. Also I am so extra thats the tea.



maybe i could get into grad school in pop culture or anthro like at sjsu by writing about this speech
