Runaway Train!

Recently I had the chance to see Kanye West's Runaway "music" video, you can't really call it that in all fairness it is 35 min's long, so I saw the Runaway film. Before I watched it I was afraid it was just another ego stroking affair with Kanye tell the world how great he really is, and how we need him and all the other rubbish he spews at times. I bit the bullet, gritted my teeth and dug into it. In essence it is a huge ego stroke however Kanye ain't playing dumb this time. The Runaway video is a star-studded affair with a wide number of artist contributions and with Victoria’s Secret model Selita Ebankso appearing as a superhumanly beautiful phoenix, falls from the sky and then in love with West, only to discover that she must burn and return to her world. It's a force worth noting.

So what am I saying really? With a "film noir" feel to it, Kanye seems to have brought that 60's Hollywood cinema, with a flare for ground breaking musical appeal of Micheal Jackson's thriller all into a one. It has a great musical and cinema feel to it, fusing the two into one beautiful work. Plus with with a great visual presentation and contemporary feel. Unfortunately the choppy dialog presented by Director Hype Williams does detract from the experience and some still frames make the piece feel animated. All in all I feel
as an artist and nothing more, Kanye West in this film has pushed the bounds of a music video and presented a dynamic piece.

The composition of the film is 9 different songs from Kanye's upcoming album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" and Runaway being the leading single from that album, works well to create a buzz. Kanye has also leaked a mix-tape "G.O.O.D. Friday" which features some of the mastered track that may be featured on the album. As for the Runaway video it features some intense cinematography and beautiful ballet piece choreography by Yemi Akinyemi, as for the tribute to MJ that felt kind cheesy
. I believe it was pretty well done video and reminded me that Kanye West is still an artist to be reckonded with, and some of that big ego has some bearing.

Anti - Valentines Day?

Valentines Day, also known as lovers' day, is said to be the 2nd biggest money making day after Christmas. This commercialness of the day has made a lot of people very anti-valentines! Many people see it simply as a money-making scheme and want nothing to do with it!

I'm not a big fan of Valentines day either. Yes receiving cute smses from people you havent heard from in years, getting chocs and cards are all good and well, but is a meaningless gift really better than no gift at all? Poor guys feel pressured to out do the next and waste money on elaborate flowers and teddy bears... Girls feel pressured to cook and wear sexy lingerie... What happened to spontaniety and the element of surprise?

I want to know if my boyfriend brings me flowers one day its because he felt like it and not because society told him he should.

After speaking to a lot of people today, most of them even refused to mention the word Valentines Day... were they all single bitter people? Not at all... I think as you grow up the novelty of Valentines Day wears out... its quite a shame as the story behind Valentines Day is quite a sweet one... Maybe one day there will be more meaning to 14 February... We can either wait for the unlikely day or give it our own meaning. Today I spent Valentines Day at home by myself and its been the best Valentines Day I have ever had! I got to relax a bit, cook for myself and declutter my closet... might not be the ideal day for most people, but when you are over-worked... a day spent like this is truly priceless!!!

Sex, Alcohol and Shared Dorms

Research shows that students in inter-sex college accommodations are more likely to binge drink and have more sex than students in same sex residences. A survey of over 500 students at universities in the US found that students living in inter-sex residences were 2.5 times more likely to admit to binge-drinking on a weekly basis. They were also twice as likely to say they've had at least three sexual partners in the past year.

This Week in Tech News

CNN reports that for most of the past week a Google image search for Michelle Obama returned a result with a picture of the US first lady altered to look like a monkey. Bormbarded with outrage and complaints Google blocked the site that was hosting the image and stated that the site was spreading malware. The image showed up on another site and was back in the search results but as of Wednesday was permanently removed.

A man was arrested for refusing to tweet: police arrested a senior vice president from Island Def Jam Records, saying he hindered their crowd-control efforts by not cooperating. The crowd at a mall where Justin Bieber was appearing got out of control, and police wanted the man to send a tweet asking for calm; he refused and they arrested him on a felony assault charge 'for putting people in danger.'

Be careful what pictures you put up on Facebook, it seems even the privacy policies of the social networking site are not full-proof. A Quebec woman on long-term sick leave, due to a diagnosis of depression, lost her health benefits after her insurance provider found pictures of her looking happy smiling on her Facebook at parties and out on the beach.

How much does the internet weigh? 500 billion kg! According to CNET. To reach this figure, they added together public data on the weight of every computer, server and connecting cable.
