Look On My Works, Ye Mighty, And Despair

This from entertainer Kanye West, whom some of you may even have heard of:

“I realize that my place and position in history is that I will go down as the voice of this generation, of this decade…

…Because I have sacrificed real life to be a celebrity and to give this art to people, which is great.”

We are not worthy.

    I’ve heard of him. Isn’t he a singer? I wasn’t aware he was so incredibly full of himself, though. Then again, I don’t really know anything about him.

    Kanye’s the guy who became infamous during the fundraising broadcasts in the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. While standing next to a serious-faced Mike Myers, Kanye famously looked into the camera and said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”

    Myers’s reaction to Kanye’s statement is hilarious.

    Ah, that was Kanye? The dude can barely put together a coherent sentence. He lost me about five seconds into his rant.

    In other news, Mike Myers does not do serious well. I keep waiting for him to say “Party on!” or break into a ridiculous Scottish accent.
