flashing lights

so next week, Kanye West is bringing his 'Glow in the Dark' tour to Austin and since I am his number one fan and his future wife, I am incredibly excited about this. I was telling crista yesterday and she had no idea who I was talking about, so, if anyone else out there hasn't had the pleasure of discovering the amazingness of Mr. West, this is for you:

Kanye West is an American rap artist and hip hop producer. He released his debut album The College Dropout in 2004, his second album Late Registration in 2005, and his third album Graduation in 2007. His first three albums have received numerous awards (including nine Grammys), critical acclaim, and commercial success. West also runs his own record label GOOD Music. West's mascot and trademark is "Dropout Bear", a teddy bear, which has appeared on the covers of his three albums as well as the singles cover for his songs Stronger and Homecoming.

I got that info off wikipedia, and you can find out all about KanYe on there, just type in his name and his whole life story comes up. It even talks about the recent passing of his mother, who was a HUGE inspiration to him, especially in his music. He also has a website KanyeUniverseCity(dot)com where he posts blogs daily and fans get to comment back and forth with him and each other. Unfortunately, there is a $25 yearly charge to be in his fan club, and I am not about to pay $25 to post a comment on his blog.
He says he lives for fashion and loves going to all the fashion shows in Europe as well as here in the states. He loves furniture, he's always posting blogs with pictures of some random expensive architecturally innovative pieces of furniture.

anyway, here's one of his latest music videos for Flashing Lights, enjoy!

My friend went to this concert last night, he got wet over Kanye. I heard it really was a good show though. I hope you enjoyed it and I also hope this counts as a comment.

LOL, I just noticed this post. Not sure what it has to do with math other than Kanye sells millions of records (millions = a number : a number = math related) Cool, we're on the right track. Oh and I went to concert too and it was awesome. Rihanna "Ella Ella Ella..."
