Kanye West Music Video of the Day: “Monster” (feat. Nicki Minaj, Jay-Z, Rick Ross & Bon Iver) [Explicit]

Third single off My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. No clue how much longer this one’ll be up considering it’s both unofficial and incomplete, but it’s here for now so have at it.


Yeah watch this because I really doubt it’ll end up in rotation on MTV. Awesome re-appropriation of horror movie tropes and cliches, with the high fashion and slight silliness you’ve come to expect from Kanye. Also the song hasn’t shifted from the position of my favorite hip-hop track of the year (probably) so it’s always worth a listen! ALWAYS! NEVER STOP

Although I’ve found hashtags that date back to 2002 (lol, N.O.R.E.), it really took off with Drake with his many, many hits that combine saying something, then pausing annoyingly, and then closing with a half-assed pun. (ex: “Swimmin’ in the money, come and find me… NEMO”). The Drakeian version of hashtag rap combines the intellectually lazy reference-qua-referencing of Family Guy episode with a pregnant pause that actually drives home how much better it would sound if there was a “like” or “as” filling that sucking abyss of silence and suckitude.

Christopher Weingarten in the Village Voice’s “20 Worst Songs of 2010,” writing about Nicki Minaj and Ludacris’s track “My Chick Bad.” Now that I’ve read about hashtag rap, I’ll hear it everywhere. dammit

“I Just Had Sex (feat. Akon)” by The Lonely Island

When you think about how pretty much every pop song being released these days might as well be this song, this gets a little more awesome.

Best moment is Jessica Alba’s sweet dance moves at 2:29. so kyuuute

hey wutsup maybe i deleted you


I’m defollowing the people I follow who use tumblr to:

  1. Write about their lives and just post pictures
  2. Just post pictures

(Unless I think of you as like a major inspiration or something.)

I’m letting you know because it’s only fair if you were following me out of mutual respect or something.

That’s not to say I don’t respect you, I do respect you— we’re just using the service for different purposes. If for some reason you’d like to cater to my taste, I’d just really prefer your own art/impressions of others’ art (writing, drawing, photography, whatever) than the binary “I saw this and liked this so I clicked reblog.” I can’t handle seeing the same picture three times in a row, call me obsessive, my bad.

It’s not personal. The internet ain’t personal.

You may now go back to not caring about my approval. shanks
