This is way too much/I need a moment.

Kanye's been
standing around looking dramatic and wondering why people won't notice him (it's 'cause we're busy listening to Cocainism), so he dropped this off at my doorstep this morning, said, "Nice shot, Ron Ron," and then disappeared in a cloud of smoke to keep the myth going.

It's just after 6:30 am PST and this song is already everywhere. In fact, I probably heard about it from your site. And even though I'd prefer if it had a more fresh name, like "Clout" or "Aptitude," and even though I have to deduct points for "At the end of the day..." and that dumb and random Austin Powers mention, please: I will be listening to this today until I start to feel sick from repetition, because of all those wonderful "HAH"s that I can't believe Kanye still includes after all these years, because Arizona doesn't care about brown people, and because of the sheer lack of Drake.

Kanye O. West - "Power."
"I guess every superhero needs his theme music." OH DEAR. Apparently he's been listening to Skyzoo ("Every hero got his theme music"), which I can't fault him for but I can certainly rib him a little for. Skyzoo's better at introspection over a beat than Kanye, but he's not better at making my heart leap out of my chest like this particular song does. Sorry, Brooklyn!

(I have fallen out of love with you, TSS. It's just not a good fit anymore. But I wish you well in all your endeavors, and thanks for the mp3.)

I think they're both just lifting the "every hero needs his theme music" line from the same source: he movie 'I'm Gonna Get You Sucka," where he has Boogie Down Productions follow him around playing "Jack of Spades."
