No, Seriously--Kanye West Can Suck It!...

This is suppose to be a blog about my comics, not a soapbox. I'm in the midst of alot of different works that have to be finished by Friday, and I will be more than happy to share them...just give me a sec. I'll be posting some inked pages pretty soon, leaking some background info on the stories, the whole nine. I'm not too good at all of this bloggin' stuff, but I'm getting there...

It's also March, which means I owe you a mixtape--I'm working on the cover for that, and it should be done this week. No, it's not the epic one that Tess and I are working on--that'll come soon enough. But this one is just as dear to my heart as that one will be... in some ways even more. ..

It'll be based on Jazz--Jazz Fusion, more specifically. What's jazz fusion, you say? Basically, in the late '60's, jazz musicians started to explore even farther different forms and improvisations, while at the same time rock musicians started to do the same thing. So they started to make bands together, used alot of, uh, inspirational tools, and made the most eclectic, beautiful music ever to come from this planet. Though, it does depend on how you like your jazz/rock/insanity--my girl thinks it sounds like chaos. I'll go into that when I post it up, but seriously folks--you have no idea what affect this had on me at a young age. Or maybe you do...

Oh, why the Kanye West stab, you say? This is why: I am so SICK of hearing his name spoken in a godlike reverence when it comes to being "unique", "progressive" and--fuck!--"innovative"! Are you people serious? Or are you, like, confusing definitions? You see, I am actually okay with everyone calling him "great", "terrific" and even "genius", though it makes me queasy. Because that's more of a matter of "taste"; like, let's say someone came to you and said: "Pizza Hut is the best tasting pizza on earth!!" Sure, okay, they have tastebuds of a caveman, but its still a lot more feasible than them saying:"Pizza Hut is the most genius, innovative pizza creators ever to make pizza in the history of pizza!!" Then, you have no choice but to shoot them point blank in the skull, because that is ridiculous. c'MON--PROGRESSIVE?! HAVE YOU LOST YOUR MINDS???!!!?!
