Kanye’s Twitter Rants to be Immortalized in ‘milk and honey’ Inspired Book

While not exactly the book we were expecting from Kanye West, Uh Huh Honey, will have to do until then. The latest in the trend of Rupi Kaur’s Milk and Honey parodies, Uh Huh Honey immortalizes Kanye’s tweets with accompanying illustrations by the author Red Gaskell.

The book features some of Kanye’s more recent tweets, following themes of creativity and expressing one’s self. 

 

 

 

In the book, Kanye’s inspiring tweets are accompanied by sketches by Gaskell, which he shared on his twitter.

I got in touch with Gaskell and asked him a few questions about his work, mostly about what inspired him to publish Uh Huh Honey

Kanye’s back on twitter and he’s been waxing poetic about life, creativity, and greatness. Everyone, whether they hate him or love him has been talking about him and his tweets. That was fun and entertaining but I wanted to make something.

When I asked him about if he would produce similar works for tweets from celebrities and political figures like Cher or Donald Trump, he responded with “I don’t know maybe.”

Kan-Yay! Kanye West Is Releasing a Philosophy Book

During an interview with Hollywood Reporter Kanye West revealed that he was in the process of writing a philosophy book called Break the Simulation.

 

Inspired by intellectuals and philosophers in the past along with inspiring textbooks about his philosophy, everyone should have seen this coming.

To celebrate the news of Kanye’s new book, here are some quotes from his talk at Oxford University that may give us some insight on what’s to come.

 

1. “…I said The Matrix is like the Bible of the post-information age…If you have a focus wide and master senseis like Laurence Fishburne and you have a squad behind you, you literally can put the world in slow motion.” – Kanye West

 

2. We have the ability to approach our race like ants, or we have the ability to approach our race like crabs.” – Yeezy 

 

3. “One of my biggest Achilles hells has been my ego. And if I, Kanye West, the very person, can remove my ego, I think there’s hope for everyone.” – Kan The Louis Vuitton Don

 

4. “My goal, if I was going to do art, fine art, would have been to become Picasso or greater.” – Mr. West

Taylor Swift badly photoshopped into Jafar

Today Was a Fairytale, and Taylor Swift is the Disney Villain

If you’ve seen Taylor Swift’s newest music video for ‘Look What You Made Me Do,’ or the lyric video, or her new line of serpent specific merch, or have been on the internet, it shouldn’t surprise you that the pop princess has fully embraced her new reputation as a capital-S Snake.

 

You know who else is a big-ass snake? Jafar.

Disney’s Wiki article on Jafar is surprisingly in-depth and surprisingly really harsh. 

 

Like numerous clinically-diagnosed psychopaths, Jafar wears a metaphorical mask of normalcy, establishing himself as a cool-headed schemer and gaining the trust of those around him. An emotional sadist, he gets a laugh out of seeing another fellow’s dreams turn into nightmares one by one.

 

Sound familiar? Although, let me be very clear (because I’m afraid of Taylor Swift’s legal team): I do not condone any accusations or rumors of Taylor Swift’s alleged psychopathic behaviors, clinically diagnosed or otherwise. 

 

Jafar is the most stylish and fashion-forward character of the franchise. He’s tall, bony, dressed in extravagant red clothing, and carries a gold, ruby-eyed, cobra-headed staff.

Am I wrong?

Seriously though, am I wrong???

 

Following the release of ‘Look What You Made Me Do’, I figure we’re around the point in The Return of Jafar where Jafar makes his debut as a genie. Powerful, vindictive, and very well accessorized. But there’s no way he’s actually in charge. After all, he’s the guy granting the wishes.

 

At the end of OG Aladdin, Jafar’s in hiding. Call it house arrest, call it unpopularity. What was T Swift even up to after Kim’s Famous Snapchat receipts? Plotting her revenge, apparently.

So what happens next? Will The Return of Taylor suck as much as The Return of Jafar? And what about the sequel to the sequel? How will Aladdin and the King of Thieves pop up? Jafar isn’t even in King of Thieves!

 

If you ask me, this whole feud should have been direct-to-DVD.
