How Kanye Really Feels

Screen Shot 2015-02-10 at 11.16.15 AM

The Grammys took place on February 8th and felt more like a concert rather than a accolade of artistic excellence. When it came down to the album of the year award,artist Beck surprised audiences around the globe when he beat fellow nominees  Beyonce, and Sam Smith. When walking onstage to accept his award Beck was briefly interrupted by Kanye who everyone believed was going to repeat his infamous speech interruptions like he did to Taylor Swift at the 2009 VMA’s. Surprisingly Kanye walked onstage but quickly exited leaving America shocked and confused. Later on that night Kanye sent the above tweet while at a Grammy after party.

*Here I write a poem dedicated to the technique called Tanka*

                         Turns out the Moms are Ebola Zombies

I was trying to go to #NYCC and dedicate my costume to Halloween

My boy told me it was located in Stark Vegas

And here I am dressed up as that guy from #My1DWWAFilm

Turns out I ended up at #BinderCon with moms

My SAT score was high so I fit in pretty well here

All until I realized Malala a female activist was standing there

 

I felt idiotic until I remembered who else was there

Malala’s ex husband  who I was for Halloween

I decided to play Mr. #stealyourgirl and told her to come here

I  asked  her if she remembered the motto in Stark Vegas

And told me to think of the moms

I told her remember what she did to me during #My1DWWAFilm

 

We call it the My 1 dirty woman word and Film #My1DWWAFilm

Yeah and we filmed ourselves there

I knew these things because of the moms

Poor Malala but at least it was Halloween

We left and went to the little chapel where we got married in Vegas

If she didn’t do me I told her I would leave her here

 

When I told her that I would leave her here

She told me it’s my turn to do what she did to me at #My1DWWAFilm

I told her I never did it in Vegas

On second thought dear why are we there

She meant to say I think I know what I wish to be for Halloween

One of the moms

 

I turned to her and said screw the moms

She could not believe with here ears what  I was saying here

Happy National Coming Out Day was on #Halloween

I told her baby let’s make it like #My1DWWAFilm

When there were tears in her eyes she said look there

I’m like baby I don’t care to look, everything is nuts in Vegas

 

#Malala turned to me and said it’s not about Vegas

You Must Die You haven’t cured #Ebola said the moms

She’s right THERE!

I told her to come here

The Mom turns and said we must die on Halloween

I got up very calmly and said I’m only the guy dressed up from #MY1DWWAFilm

 

 

 

I Just Turned 1

A little FYI I just turned 1 on twitter, I never had this experience before and wanted to share it. I normally forget my password which is why I never made it. Find me on twitter if you would like @spoonofsuga, cute name right? Well, that would’ve been my domain name if I didn’t lose […]

YT University and IG Confinement

The social media networks I use everyday, religiously, are Youtube, and Instagram. I also have a Google+, and Twitter account, but I never use them. I honestly can not figure out how Google+ works. Back in 2010, I deactivated my Facebook account. Maintaining a Facebook account, and being a freshman in college was not easy work. Plus, Facebook gets everyone into trouble.

My Youtube account, and Instagram account are used in two totally different ways. On Youtube I watch a variety of things. I use it to watch vlogs, tutorials, reviews, music videos, comedy skits, relaxation videos (ASMR), and I sometimes come across a laughing baby. No one has my Youtube information, I do not upload videos, and it’s not even my real name. It is purely used for educational, and entertainment purposes. Instagram is a different story. Instagram really is an addiction. You may not post everyday, but you are definitely on it everyday. I have not logged out since I downloaded the app. Instagram is the ultimate “Let me be nosey” app.  My Instagram is public, but it is also not under my real name. Your Instagram handle is something you give out freely (@_geniuschild). I have met friends on Instagram, and reconnected with old ones; however, you can also lose friends over Instagram, it’s called “Unfollow.”

On both accounts I am pretty careful with what I comment, and post. Even though on Youtube no ones knows it is me, I keep my negative comments to myself. On Instagram my posts are either funny, serious, artsy, photos of Bob Marley, photos of outings, or an occasional “selfie.”

“Controlling Your Public Appearance” by Danah Boyd, does not make me change my thoughts of how I use social media. I do not post anything that can cause me to lose a job, or a potential job. When my name is searched everything that is seen is volleyball related. However, if my Instagram were under my name, and my pictures were to appear, the person searching my name would know: I am humorous but sometimes serious, artistic, a lover of Bob Marley, who rarely goes out, and posts “selfies” once a month.
