Runaway Short Film-5/5*'s
I believe openings for diverse interpretation translate to attributes of greatness. This short film promoting Kanye West's new album, My Dark Twisted Fantasy,  meets that exact criteria. It was only fitting to have a small film to go along with what some music critics claim to be a "perfect" album. Containing 13 tracks of poetic and rythmic masterpieces, Kanye West decided to take a very original approach to such an album and tell the story through visual stimulation. The short film reveals that of a beautiful bird who has flown in from another planet in a heap of destruction while Kanye is driving in the woods. He takes her under his wing (NPI), and falls in love with her. She is immersed in a world of glamor and perfection. Kanye's character does everything in his "power" to provide an ideal life, yet the world's judgment drives her to a breaking point to fly away.
    There has already been much criticism for such an out-of-the-box approach, this pertains to people's lack of ability to see genius. The way the songs are sequenced with the video, it is obvious Kanye knew exactly what he wanted the outlook to be in relativity to each song. It is a wonderful piece of artwork that deserves the recognition it has obtained. Hopefully people can look beyond his past mistakes and allegations because he is a true visionary who has used negative aspects of life to provide the world with a sterling translation of the human psyche.

Vman 21 Party feat. Kanye West & Keri Hilson
Perhaps it was the Kanye West and Keri Hilson appearance or the thousands of dollar bills raining from the ceiling, either way the Vman 21 party was a night to remember. After meeting Kanye, I can state with confidence that he is a very nice and cool guy. The media needs to stop portraying him as the villain. I enjoyed conversating with various guests through out the party, especialy one very cool freelance photographer. The atmosphere of the celebration was truly heightened when the beautiful miss Keri Hilson entered the building to join Kanye in the VIP area. The party was obviously VERY exclusive, yet I was still able to get my small posse into the gathering through connections. The event was held at the Mondrian Hotel in Soho and lasted until the wee hours of the morning. I managed to keep my dance moves energized most of the time. What a night to remember!

Vman 21
The old saying "no risk no reward" seems to be the tag-line of Kanye West's career, and the Vman 21 issue. Grazing the cover of Vman's latest issue is Kanye with a one-hundred dollar bill in his mouth. Vman has been hosting a promotional gathering featuring myself, Petey Wright, and Brazilian model Monica Pedro. We play the part of futuristic assembly workers placing dollar bills in magazine slips and sealing them air tight. The promotional is being held February 6th and 7th, 11am-3pm on 11 Mercer Street. The Vman party will be held February 15th.
