I was supposed to show you the Kanye West’s Ed In ’08 promo, which apparently is getting lots of YouTube attention, but was so bored and disappointed by the spot -- perfunctory, obvious, unimaginably forgettable -- that I needed a jolt of West’s live performance at the VMA of his new song, Stronger -- whose opening chorus (see below) might actually be a good anthem for Ed In ‘08.
N-n-now th-that that don’t kill me, can only make me stronger.
I need you to hurry up now, cuz I can’t wait much longer.
I know I got to be right now, I can’t get much stronger (wronger?)
Man I been waiting all night now, that’s how long I been on you.
I need ya right now. I need ya right now
