Conversations. And a Video.

Kid Sister ft. Kanye West - "Pro Nails" from Ruben Fleischer on Vimeo.

G: I think it's funny that Kanye starts out his rap by pointing out that, "Yes, here I am on this song. Why? Because I liked it."
J: i know...anthem. i was thinking yesterday while listening to clipse, kid sister and spank rock that my favorite thing about rap is how they stretch the limits of language so words and stanzas sound beautiful together.
G: I love that rap uses all sorts of formally described techniques from poetry like, different types of rhyming schemes. But then there is this unique thing where.. it's not like poetry where you can have somebody else write it and you read it, the delivery is half the art.
J: Exactly.
G:Like Kanye's funny little internal rhyme "goods" with "could"
J: I think it goes "to hide the goods i would need pants big as hammers."

I am obsessed with this video right now. I understand that it isn't for everyone and half of the love is seeing my excitement about it and dancing for you while I make you watch it.

(If you are so lucky.)

But, Reuben Fleischer is a genius and break dancing finger shoes! Who doesn't love break dancing finger shoes? I sure did.
