It seems like everyone in blog land is ranting lately. Luckily, I like to follow the crowd. I wasn’t going to say anything on this topic because people funnier and quicker than me (there are a few) have already tweeted and meme’d about it. But I really don’t care because I keep scratching my head about the ridiculous-ness of it all.
Someone has started a GoFundMe page for Kanye West. They’re calling it Get Kanye Out of Debt (seriously?) And people are donating to it!
Listen, I would never want to be accused of stifling creativity, but can we look at this for a minute? Kanye has expressed his annoyance at people, like Mark Zuckerberg, giving money to build schools in Africa and not to him so that he can create “dope shit”.
THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH GIFS ON THE INTERNET TO EXPRESS MY DISDAIN.
Kanye, you just released an album. Deal with that first. Then, sit down and think about your life choices. Your wife is OK with you calling Taylor Swift a bitch and talking about doing adult things with her. I think the two of you should re-think your stance on this because you have children. The internet is forever, Yeez. How are you going to explain that to your daughter when she starts Googling? Which, in today’s world, will probably be sooner than you think. Get help. Quick.
And Kim- WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU? Just in general, I’d like to know.
Also, where’s my GoFundMe page? I could always use some extra cash (who doesn’t?) I want to create some dope shit –that phrase is addicting– on this blog, anybody want to support the cause? Didn’t think so.
The other thing I feel the need to rant about is the fact that Apple will not help investigators crack into the San Bernadino shooter’s phone. From what I’ve gathered, Tim Cook basically believes that if he does it in this case, people will feel like he’s going to do it for them. I think. Whatever, it’s crazy and he’s wrong.
Honestly, if the government spying on my phone keeps me safe – spy away. For the record, Tim, that’s not what it means. And, although there are many, many conspiracy theorists out there today (I’m looking at you, Facebook.) I really don’t think anyone truly feels threatened by you writing a code to over ride the wipe out feature on this particular cellphone. Think of it this way, if they do feel this way, what do they have to hide?
WWSJD: What Would Steve Jobs Do?
If you’re looking for a legitimate, not full of shit, GoFundMe page to donate to, the school where Lisa works has hit hard times. They’ve been in the same building for over 40 years but are now being told they have to find new accommodations. Which 1) totally sucks and 2) costs money, lots of it. So, if you have a few extra bucks to give and are feeling generous, feel free to give. To borrow from Kanye’s campaign speech: DO IT FOR THE KIDS!
What do you think of Kanye’s antics? Sign of a breakdown? Should Apple lend a hand?
