Kanye West Presents Runaway

If you happened to have 35 minutes to spare and want to see some WEIRDstuff then watch this video. This Kanye West masterpiece shows flashes of brilliance as well as lunacy. The premise of the short film is that Ye rescues a phoenix played by lingerie model Selita Ebanks who falls down from the cosmos. She is rejected for her differences while on earth is eventually torn away from West and returns to her own realm. The acting is horrendously corny and you would definitely expect better from Yeezy. A part of me just feels like he just put together all the random shit he could think of in to this wild compilation. On the other hand all of the music is fantastic and will be on his My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album dropping November 22nd.

If your a Miami Heat fan your all smiles right now. As for everybody else….HATERS! Nike always puts out the best commercials, but this is probably one of the best. No one team should have all that power!

SF Giants Are Going To The World Series


The rain came down hard in San Francisco on Saturday night but the drought is over. The Giants are headed to the World Series for the first time since 2002.  I was just one of many Giants fans, new and old, who watched the game in a bar around SF and took to the streets to celebrate after the victory.  Honking horns and loud whoops poured from passing cars and doorways for hours after the last pitch. Even idle police cars and fire engines sounded their sirens in celebration.  Its been a great ride and its time to bring on the Rangers.  LETS GO GIANTS!!!!  Hit the jump for more pics.
