Regardless of whether Kanye’s new album is overrated, there is no doubt that his household name has just increased slightly in font size. He is a celebrity apart from anything else; his fame is greater than his life itself. I don’t know what to make of it. I think it best to conceed that I am just a little bemused and instead of passing a negative and ill-informed judgement on the whole affair (I haven’t even heard the whole album, just seen his name everywhere and everywhere), I will instead pose the a contrasting philosophy of another artist and let your judements be passed. Richard D James (aka Aphex Twin) is an entirely reluctant superstar, his Aphex Twin situation is very known. He has however posted music under many many different names in order to detract his worth and the credit that spindles often in his direction.
I’m not sure what to make of it all; so I speed up the tempo and pretend I don’t have a computer screen in front of me.
Anyway, here’s a song by ~He’d prefer you didn’t know.~ aka “The Tuss”
The Tuss – Rushup I Bank 12
Has to be one of the most sweatiest songs that still retains a certain amount of dignity. Once you get past the irritation it could display, once you accept that there really ARE that many snare sounds per second, you see past it, you dance, you become superior, the sound is not on you; rather you are on the sound. It then puts every object and movement into slow-motion, and sometimes you need to do that to find the emotions inside you that cannot be understood at your in-experience.
