In preparation and curiosity of the new Tron Legacy film by Disney, I had to check out the original 1982 Tron. It’s suppose to be cutting edge and revolutionary for its use of animation. I gotta say, for 1982 it was impressive. The creativity and use of their resources was close to genius. A long with the simple plot with a clear message the original Tron will actually be difficult to top.
I’ve already heard mixed opinions about Tron Legacy, but I’m looking forward to the 3D experience. Jeff Bridges young and old don’t let me down!
Here is my simple desktop background tribute to the lightbike scene in the original Tron.
Dana White says that Georges St. Pierre “…is the most popular athete to ever come out of Canada. Ever!”
He might not be right now but with that kind of statement Dana got enough attention for GSP. More importantly Dana is building his brand and promoting his events. MMA=UFC and UFC=MMA. Those two are now synonymous with each other. That alone is Dana’s greatest achievement.
Let’s cut straight to the point, Kanye West is a genius. That’s right Taylor Swift fans.
I’m not saying I agree with everything he does or creates. The man still makes mistakes and isn’t perfect. But this is all part of his genius. These days any publicity is still publicity.
How did Kanye make a name for himself? First he knocked on every door in the music industry and bugged them to listen to the beats he produced. They loved his classic style by grabbing from old school samples. But then he shocked the hip hop industry by wanting to be an MC. Let’s face it, Kanye isn’t the best MC nor is he even qualified to sing (hence the auto-tune). Now he’s rolling around on top of the hip hop heap. Thanks to some lucky breaks and incredible connections (Jay-Z).
That in a nutshell is his journey, but I want to get back to how he made a name for himself. He literally took the microphone out of our hands and said his name over and over again. He stuck his name in every other line in the media and they ate it up. Kanye has created an eccentric persona and people want to know what he’s going to do next regardless of whether they like his music.
I ignore the ET reports and Twitter bombs and respect the artistic talent that is Kanye West. He might be a jerk in the public eye but I don’t care. That’s his way of owning our ears. I respect him for being consistently creative.
