Kanye West…Go on I dare ya

…to watch all 34 minutes of his new work. I can’t say I’m a fan, but there’ve been a few great moments from him – my favourite being Flashing Lights – a dark, menacing short film that sampled trance synths better than anyone else.  His latest opus is rather pretentious and self indulgent which is very Kanye, but what I like about it is that you don’t know what’s coming next, he surprises and confounds and entertains. How many hip hop or modern performers are making art? I think the film has the phoenix representing his career so far…who knows. She’s a sexy wee bird though. I love, love the sequence with the ballet dancers against that green wall after the last supper scene (puhhleease Kanye).
