The Joke: South Park, Kanye West, Fishsticks

(… fyi: this posting is pretty random…)

Person A: Do you like fishsticks?
Person B: Yes.
Person A: You like to put them in your mouth?
Person B: Yes.
Person A: What are you… a gay fish? (laughter)
Person B: (blank stare) (laughter)

So, last night South Park premiered an episode that… well, that sorta chumped Kanye. If you didn’t see it, then you can watch it here.

Basically they were getting on him and his ego… but to me, it didn’t really make sense because I couldn’t understand why they would make an entire episode- 22 whole minutes, just to rip on Kanye West– I mean 10 minutes, okay, but the entire episode???… it was sort of perplexing to the point that it wasn’t really that funny (or as funny as I had hoped). I watch South Park pretty adamantly and there’s always atleast one scene in which I laugh uncontrollably, but for some weird reason I sort of chuckled here and there, but it wasn’t thaaaat funny *shrugs*, idk….

Anywho, so I posed the question (of why they would make an entire episode about one rapper) to friends and my friend Randall said:

“Supposedly South Park doesn’t like Family Guy cause they feel like they’re biting ‘their’ style….and then Kanye is gonna be in a Family Guy spin-off…..so this was their way of getting Kanye in the mix”

And for those of you who don’t know Family Guy is going to do a spin-off called The Cleveland Show, featuring Peters neighbor Cleveland and his family. And after some research I found out that Kanye West is indeed suppose to play a character on the show named Kenny West who is an all-around cool kid and the archenemy of Cleveland Jr.

Sooo with all that said South Park bashed Kanye to bash Family Guy (or something like that)… again I just don’t know, I feel they should have made it more obvious that they were bashing Family Guy because it was just too indirect…. anywho, this is how Ye responded:

SOUTH PARK MURDERED ME LAST NIGHT AND IT’S PRETTY FUNNY. IT HURTS MY FEELINGS BUT WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM SOUTH PARK! I ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY EGO THOUGH. HAVING THE CRAZY EGO IS PLAYED OUT AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE AND CAREER. I USE TO USE IT TO BUILD UP MY ESTEEM WHEN NOBODY BELIEVED IN ME. NOW THAT PEOPLE DO BELIEVE AND SUPPORT MY MUSIC AND PRODUCTS THE BEST RESPONSE IS THANK YOU INSTEAD OF “I TOLD YOU SO!!!” IT’S COOL TO TALK SHIT WHEN YOU’RE RAPPING BUT NOT IN REAL LIFE. WHEN YOU MEET LITTLE WAYNE IN PERSON HE’S THE NICEST GUY FOR EXAMPLE. I JUST WANNA BE A DOPER PERSON WHICH STARTS WITH ME NOT ALWAYS TELLING PEOPLE HOW DOPE I THINK I AM. I NEED TO JUST GET PAST MYSELF. DROP THE BRAVADO AND JUST MAKE DOPE PRODUCT. EVERYTHING IS NOT THAT SERIOUS. AS LONG AS PEOPLE THINK I ACT LIKE A BITCH THIS TYPE OF SHIT WILL HAPPEN TO ME. I GOT A LONG ROAD AHEAD OF ME TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE I’M NOT ACTUALLY A HUGE DOUCHE BUT I’M UP FOR THE CHALLENGE. I’M SURE THE WRITERS AT SOUTH PARK ARE REALLY NICE PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE. THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO DRAW MY CREW. THAT WAS PRETTY FUNNY ALSO!! I’M SURE THERE’S GRAMMATICAL ERRORS IN THIS… THAT’S HOW YOU KNOW IT’S ME!

But the whole reason or main reason for me creating this posting was actually to give South Park two thumbs up on re-creating Kanye and his crew- very cool. They matched everyone exactly- from the hair to the shoes. The only thing is that they completely left out Virgil Abloh… that’s pretty lame, I know he’s probably sorta upset they didn’t recreate him (who wouldn’t be).

there’s more depending on the day, the time, the moment.

*These guys pretty much refer to themselves as the G.O.O.D. Music/ Pastelle Fam. So basically everyone you see him rolling with is pretty much helping him with the label in some way or another.

Kanye and friends have been in Paris just “ackin a fool, stuntin’ on em” , but seriously though many of you all HATE the looks being worn by Kanye & Crew, I however have to applaud in many aspects— okay, yes they may seem to be trying to hard, but really they aren’t.

Taz, well if you know anything about the dude he just dresses over the top- that’s him. Fonzworth he’s staying true to himself and continues to make us proud by looking like a true dapper southern-bred gentleman (Georgia-bred to be specific). And Kanye, well he just has a love for labels and that’s just how some people are, but I’m pretty sure with age he will transcend the labels. And the other guys, well I don’t really know their history per se, but from what I’ve been learning about them they seem to just be “doing them”. They all may be turning it up a few degrees for fashion week, but hey Kanye’s trying to launch a label so they’re getting ALOT of publicity from this… and from what it seems they will surely have a superb line.

Sidenote: seriously though, these guys have style in their own way… I’ll do an individual profile on each of them later.

Kanye in Paris: Swagger on a Hundred Thousand Trillon

I must say Ye’…. you’re a hoot. (laughter).

Did he just say, Martin LOUIS the King Jr.??? I think he did.

Yes Ye’, you’re the “numba one stunta” and we applaud.
(applauds in the background)
But really guys, how fly is this guy…. yeah, he could be a bit more humble, maybe a bit more nice, but we can’t deny his flyness.

Kanye? 50 cents?// Kanye West Louis Vuitton Sneakers

Lol, this video will make you laugh.

He forgot to remove his bag from the runway at the Louis Vuitton show, so the photographers are making remarks about this. This video is shot from the photographers pit.

Here’s some pictures of Kanye at the Louis Vuitton Show:





And finally, here’s a closeup of the Kanye for LV shoes:

PARIS — Marc Jacobs and the Louis Vuitton men’s studio director Paul Helbers have some design competition this season. Kanye West, who was sitting front row at the Vuitton show, has designed a line of five LV sneakers. Only one design, above,
was featured in the show — a monochromatic midtop with no frills, save for a quilted flap in the back, all the easier to tuck pants into. “The inspiration came from a jacket with a huge collar in the movie ‘Dune,’ ” West says. “Most sneakers focus on the tongue, so I wanted to do something different.” West knows whereof he speaks: he says he has no idea how many shoes he owns, but he does know that he routinely needs to send shipments off to storage. The LV-meets-Kanye kicks will be available at Louis Vuitton stores in June.
