Video: Kanye West - Power (Uncensored)

Kanye West POWER by Marco Brambilla (Director's Cut)

It's safe to say that Mr. West has raised the bar again with the visuals to his latest,newest. My only complaint is that it's too short. Before you hit the play button I'd advise you do so in an office free setting. Better to be safe than sorry.

*Interesting facts - Director Marco Brambilla is Canadian, attended Ryerson University, and his directorial debut was "Demolition Man" starring Slyvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes.

IMO: Time Waits For No Man

This morning while trying to get myself together I began to think about time. The idea is that time is something we can never hold on to, that it constantly moves even when we do not. I for one always feel that there is never enough. I'm always looking for more whether it's prep time getting ready in the morning or a few more minutes courtesy of the snooze button. Why do the things we enjoy seem to just speed by, whereas the things we dread take an eternity to end? In the company of friends time is something that we rarely account for but in the office there is always a dash as of quitting time. I use these two examples as they are two completely different environments. Is it that certain social settings merit our attention more than others? Or is it the people we share our time with that make it that more special? I heard once that a man with too much time can only get himself into trouble. What I think is if you have too much you need to give me some!

Profile: Bun B

PROFILE: Bun B from dee vazquez on Vimeo.

If you don't know who Dee Vazquez is get familiar! Profile is an insightful series comprised of  a simple Q & A between the interviewer (Vazquez) and the artist. The questions don't change but the responses vary from introspective to all out hilarity.  Watch out for the "Sword"! In this particular Profile she chops it up with Port Arthur's finest Bun B. Check it out!

Welcome Back

After a very lenghty hiatus I have decided to put my focus back into the future. This blog started as a release during a very dark period but has progressed into an embodiment of me and all I do. I've received so many positive responses but of course with time directed to other artistic endeavours it has been difficult to be as consistent as I should be. For the readers I thank you for following my journey. There is much to catch up on and I promise there will be no more gaps. For new readers look at this as a new beginning, feel free to catch up with past postings and see what I see.

Welcome back class is in session,
