Kanye West on George W Bush: “I can definitely understand the way he feels”

Posted from The Citrus Report

And this is how friendships are made, understanding where one is coming from. Kanye West just told the world that he understands the way GWB feels. “I can definitely understand the way he feels.” Exact words.

Actually, here is what he said in full:

“Well I definitely can understand the way he feels– to be accused of being a racist in any way. Because the same thing happened to me, you know, where I got accused of being racist. And with both situations, it was basically a lack of compassion that America saw in that situation. With him it was a lack of compassion, with him not rushing– you know, him taking the time time to rush down to New Orleans. With me, it was a lack of compassion of cutting someone off in their moment. But nonetheless I think we’re all quick to pull the race card in America. And now, I’m more open. And the poetic justice that I feel, to have went through the same thing that he went, and now I really more connect with him on a humanitarian level… because the next morning, when he felt that, I felt the same thing.”

We think:

Thanks Pitchfork.

Friends Forever: A Film by Ryan McGinley, featuring Girls and Smith Westerns

Posted from The Citrus Report

What we like about this film by Ryan McGinley is that it focuses on two bands we love, Girls and the Smith Westerns, two bands that got a bit big last year. And we like Ryan McGinley, the guy really does have a very beautiful aesthetic. “Friends Forever” was shot at this year’s Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. Enjoy.
