Just take me inside your arms and hold me tight
And always be by my side, if I am wrong or right

Thank you, KimYe, for being the epitome of living the lavish, ridiculous, and sometimes excessive lifestyle but ultimately not giving a fuck what anybody says and just simply doing y’all & hustlin’. “All the screams from the haters, it has a nice ring to it.” 

Favorite quotes from this interview:

On making it: “I am a black American male from Chicago,” West says, “who had my rehearsal dinner at Versailles and then got married in Florence with a view of the entire city.”

On who attended their wedding: It doesn’t even matter to me whatsoever, who would show up. Because the most important person to show up there, to me, was Kim. And that’s all that matters to me. I had to fight for that for seven years.”

On what he hopes on building: I think I have a good chance of success in building something that has longevity, high integrity, high success rate, and is very fulfilling, not only for me creatively but also in adding fulfillment to people’s lives. Adding ease. Adding wonder. Adding magic.

On doing things that people deem as “uncool:” Family is super cool. Going home to one girl every night is super cool. Just going home and getting on the floor and playing with your child is super cool. Not wearing a red leather jacket, and just looking like a dad and shit, is like super cool. Having someone that I can call Mom again. That shit is super cool.”

Instead, I’ve been thinking about an anecdote in Tina Fey’s Bossypants. Amy Poehler, then new to “Saturday Night Live,” was engaging in some loud and unladylike vulgarity in the writers’ room when the show’s then-star Jimmy Fallon jokingly told her to cut it out, saying, “It’s not cute! I don’t like it!” In Fey’s retelling, Poehler “went black in the eyes for a second, and wheeled around on him,” forcefully informing him: “I don’t fucking care if you like it.”

Cleaning up space on laptop & thought I’d share a few snaps of shows I’ve had the opportunity to shoot this year. The National played with Tame Impala in Dallas on the ACL-spillover this past October. Only my second time seeing these vets but wishing it was much more.
