Funny because the 300 Spartans were... Greek and not Roman? It drives me up a wall, and keeps me from loving the song as much as it deserves.

He most certainly does, largely because he is always interpreted as "honest" rather than hateful. That's really the major issue I had with Dark Twisted Fantasy: he seemed to want to play it both ways in terms of being simultaneously applauded and pitied for his assholism, especially in terms of his relationships with women. But that's obviously just my take. I know others feel differently.

I also think Kanye's signature has always been his creativity at production and not his lyrics, which people generally could take or leave. Of all the big hip-hop names, I'm not sure any of them relies less on his lyrics than Kanye.

Exactly. I like to think he does it with the full knowledge that it's incorrect for irony's sake. But really, who knows...?

It's certainly possible Kanye is confusing Romans with Spartans, but I've heard 'keep it 300' refers to the Roman numeral for 300, or CCC (meaning Cool, Calm, and Collected)

Anyway, he needed to rhyme something with '300 Bitches, 300 Trojans'

This is a great read, from an unlikely source:

Lou Reed > Kanye West - The Talkhouse

That is a great read. The perspective from another musician is especially fascinating, and Reed has a direct response to the accusation I made of Kanye earlier: that he wants to be simultaneously applauded and pitied for being an asshole. Reed says that kind of schizophrenic attitude is a mark of manic depression. I hadn't thought of it that way.

KANYE WEST ‏@kanyewest 1h

I saw a pre-screening of Pacific Rim yesterday and it's easily one of my favorite movies of all time.

I miss his Twitter rants. It's a shame he deleted all his old tweets. It was a rare insight into the mind of a madman.

Black Skinhead is always

Video got taken down. People on the Kanye board are saying that it's tour visuals because "stage" is written in the url and the video is split three ways, suggesting that parts of it will be on separate screens. Not to mention the haste in removing it. It's a terrible video no matter what, but it makes more sense as background visuals. I certainly hope they're right.

Maybe he'll incorporate this into that Jetsons movie he's working on.

Update: Kanye tweeted that someone leaked the video well before it was done and "fuk you."

Which doesn't make me feel any better, it's still going to be terrible if this is the concept they're going with.
