    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I thought he did it tastefully....then where kanye is bragging about all the pussy he got and Kimmel responds with "yeah, I saw the video" was pretty good. He probably got a months supply of material from the reaction

    This is an awful post. Don't criticize the behaviour/art of a guy because he hasn't beaten a woman (even though with all eyes on him, his idea of a song about his girlfriend is called "the perfect bitch")? Who exactly was pretending Chris Brown is important? Blah blah blah oil spills?

    You embarrass yourself with both references to Beethoven ("probably worse" and "relevant" :lol: ). Ever been to a symphony or listened to a soundtrack?

    I won't blather another word on this unworthy subject but there is a critical difference between "taking flak" and "not deserving it."

    I don't understand how people believe kanye is talented. He just experiments a little bit and people thinks it genius. My 4 year old can make better beats than him. Lyrically he's awful. Just another mainstream pop act.

    big deal right?

    OK yes lyrically he often leaves something to desire, but if your 4 year can make better and more creative beats than him, then shit, get him into a recording studio STAT

    kanye is an obviously emotionally reactive and fragile dude...and kimmel responds with an easy joke that wasn't even really funny, and then continues to bully the guy. I mean, I get the guy needs to eat, but it's just shitty continuing to poke someone you know is going to respond.

    the thing I find kinda fascinating about all of this though is how disparate responses to guys like kanye, TO or lebron tend to be...I mean, they're all talented, but even beyond that, I personally like and respect aspects of the ego and braggadocio--it feels more simply youthful and spirited than anything threatening. it goes without saying, a lot of other folks find it obnoxious and something other than any of them simply expressing themselves in an overt and charged way.

    I'm a bit offended that you need to jump to such a harsh tone so quickly, but whatever. You might be responding to some other post I made on another forum that doesn't exist (who knows), but I never once suggested Kanye is or ever was a blameless human being. I simply said it's silly how Kanye receives such vitriol for being nothing more than a self-important jerk (there is criticism embedded in that label btw) whereas it's completely normal for our culture to forget shit like John Lennon or Morgan Freeman or Charlie Sheen beating women, or to forgive people of actual importance (such as newsworthy people like our lawmakers) for doing fucked up shit.

    The oil spill bit was hyperbole. A joke. I'm glad you picked up on that. Oh, and who ever mentioned Chris Brown in the first place? RIiiiiiight.

    You're either drunk, stupid, or illiterate because I also never said Beethoven was a worse musician. I said his flights of drunken rage were probably worse exhibits that a human being could display than, say, being Kanye West. I'm not a "fan" of classical music, but it's the only other radio station I'll listen to when I'm in the car. That doesn't mean it's particularly relevant to contemporary culture though. Anyway, the only reason this is part of the discussion is because I just wanted to compare impotent male rage between the two men (Beethoven and Kanye) and how we respond to their actions. Maybe it was unnecessary to bring up whether classical music is "relevant," but I don't really care because there's no argument here: it's not. (That doesn't mean it has no significance, be that cultural or historical, but this discussion is waaaay less engaging than talking about Kanye West.)

    Thank you, that's very thoughtful of you.

    Oh. I thought you were?—didn't you say?—oh well. Anyway, I didn't say anything about who deserves what. I was just pointing out how there's this peculiar—though not inexplicable (because: racism)—fetish about Kanye's ego. Why does it make people so impassioned? Why does this get talked about more in such a viciously disapproving way when, at the same time, actually important and actually despicable shit gets shrugged off?

    Who: I appreciate that you actually take time to think about this stuff in threads. I generally choose to not engage, and sometimes it's nice to have someone actually speak up.
