808s + Heartbreak Custom Nikes

22 12 2008

All of Kanye’s new stuff has been banned from my listening devices.  808s and heartbreak breaks my heart (and hurts my ears) to listen to, but I feel no hesitation posting about these custom AF1s inspired by the 808s + Heartbreak artwork and Kanye’s “geek chic” attire.

Sneaker customizers MACHE and emmanueLabor created the ultimate in sneaker art.  From the houndstooth plaid, to the Kaws artwork featured on the album, these Forces are fresh.  (Even note the heart on the tongue.)

Props to HighSnobiety.


Kanye – Love Lockdown video.

7 10 2008

I wasn’t a fan of this song when I heard it on the MTV VMAs…and I’m still not a big fan of it.  But I love Kanye, and I can appreciate the evolution of an artist.

I love this video.  It inspired me to post to my blog again…something I haven’t done in two or more months.  So that might be an indication of how much I enjoyed this video.

Flashing Lights Videos Leaked

2 06 2008

Or so says the man himself. Straight from Kanye’s Blog:

I shot 3 vids for flashing lights cuz I ain’t like the first 2. I loved the 3rd one that I released with Spike and hit the world with that. I actually had Sam Speigal , Spike’s brother and co-orchestrater of THE TOUR MUSIC, do a remix 2 the scary one 2 make the music fit. I planned 2 put it on a DVD later this year. No rant’s here just an explanation of why yall getting those other vids rt now that I ain’t approve and why I ain’t finna post neither on my blog. So I hope whoever leaked them got the shine they was looking 4 cause that’s all they’ll get now. And I know that’s incorrect english but that’s how I talk when I want 2. Oh and I’ve just been 2 busy 2 get at the New York Times for all that his Ego BLAH BLAH BLAH bullshit so stay tuned. For fun, I want yall 2 read this whole post in the Grandma’s Boy JP robot voice LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

And just so everyone knows, in my not-so-humble opinion, using numbers as words should be left to 14-year-old girls in AIM chat and the occasional text.

Oh, and Ye’s reference to Grandma’s Boy. Check it out. 🙂

And lastly, all three Flashing Lights videos:

#1 — The one Kanye liked; the “Official” video

#2 — Uh, he just didn’t like it…

#3 — Didn’t want to release, but was going to but on the DVD later

Flashing Lights #3

29 05 2008

Ok, so this is reportedly the last video.  However, I think this is some sick game of Kanye’s.  “Let’s seehow much garbage the consumer will eat up?”  Or perhaps, “How can I stretch the longevity of this album?”

It’s A-Trak. Fool.

Ye, you have legitimized the wearing of this atrocious fashion accessory.


(The Glow in the Dark Shades are all you, Kanye. AND should only be worn by YOU.)
