In the recent podcast with Bret Easton Ellis, Kanye West talked a little about Zappos.com, and how they were putting out a "shit product" -- the company has responded by actually selling a "shit product." Umm ... got um?

How does the community feel about vinyl bootlegs? For example: Kanye West's Graduation (to my knowledge) has never officially been pressed. However, Vinyl-Digital has pre-orders up for a limited edition purple pressing.

Annie Clark (St. Vincent) recently reviewed Arcade Fire's latest album, Reflektor, for The Talkhouse - the same site that featured the late Lou Reed raving over Yeezus and Ezra Koenig's (Vampire Weekend) goofy take on Nothing Was The Same.
The Arcade Fire have released an album that elucidates our constant psychic vacillation between uber-connection and utter disconnection. They ask you to be aware of your fractured attention span/psyche/in touch with your humanity. Arcade Fire so mercifully avoid the Nuremberg-rock cliches ("Hey!") in favor of sleaze, anxiety, and pathos that you can dance to.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are suing the leaker of their engagement video, who, it turns out, was Chad Hurley (one of the co-founders of YouTube).
The couple's lawsuit states Chad Hurley wasn't invited to the elaborate Oct. 21 proposal at San Francisco's AT&T Park, but was allowed to stay because he signed an agreement not to post any video or images from the event. West allowed other cameras to film the event for possible broadcast on E! Entertainment Television, home to his fiancee's show "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," according to the suit.

Kanye West's Yeezus tour continues to be plagued by equipment issues, this time due a crash en route to Vancouver involving one of the tour's equipment trucks. According to Kanye's publicist the accident damaged the tour's "custom-made video truss and 60-ft circular LED screen" so badly that the gear is "beyond repair." As a result, last night's Vancouver show was postponed as well as the shows scheduled for Denver and Minneapolis. There is no word yet as to whether more dates of the tour will be affected.

Even if you're a fan of his music, it's easy to write off Kanye West's numerous public rants this year--whether at his concerts, another artist's listening party, or via Twitter--as mere publicity stunts, aimless babbling, or whatever. But if you read between the lines and actually think about the topics he's been bringing up during the Yeezus album cycle--including in his music--and especially if you paid attention to his interview with BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe, it's increasingly obviously that writing Kanye's rants off as such is in fact a lazy misrepresentation of what he's been trying to do.

Further proof of this emerged last night when Kanye sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to clear the...

Following on the heels of their highly publicized Twitter feud, Jimmy Kimmel and Kanye West are set to either reconcile or take the feud to another level face-to-face on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight. Be sure to tune in, as it seems very unlikely that we won't get at least a few classic Kanyeisms out of this appearance.

In a new interview, Rick Rubin stated that Kanye West recorded enough music for another full album while working on Yeezus. This should all be taken with a grain of salt considering how much material Kanye records for each album that never sees the light of day.
Initially, he thought there were going to be 16 songs on the album. But that first day, before he even asked me to work on it, I said, “Maybe you should make it more concise. Maybe this is two albums. Maybe this is just the first half.” That was one of the first breakthroughs. Kanye was like, “That’s what I came here today to hear! It could be 10 songs!”
