at your convenience

here is the link to the kanye west "storytellers" videos.


kanye just gets it. what struck me most (other than the performances) were the responses on the page. kanye isn't trying to be artistic--he is an artist. i don't understand why artist is such a bad word to so many people. but the lighting (my goodness, the lighting...if i could describe what i'd want my bedroom to look like, i finally have a point of referene), the instrumentaton and the histrionics of it all...it's just perfect.

and, i actually like "808s and Heartbreak" more than Thom Yorke's "Eraser"...so there.
