A blond wig
The bud lite is sweet on your lips, bro says to wig.
A mid thirties writer-type texting someone, drinking coors lite.
Kids making out. Looking at the old man [me] claim his seat.
Climbing the seats.
When I get there to my seat a hipster next to make-up kids says, SWAG.
This is a crowd of people who are still hungry.
Sitting by ...
Seeing Radiohead also at a hockey stadium.
guy booting in the bathroom
Talking to the overweight make-up artist about changing city.
[after I moved down into better, less cramped seats]
white ladies next to me in the good/better seats texting and drinking tall cans and later leaving early
I feel like I'm in a movie or something.
Kanye: This is what rap music is. This is what art is.
With Tyler the creator
Whinier than I imagined.
White guys losing their minds in front of me.
Talking to the cop before the show starts about his daughters. I tell him I have a kid [she’s in California at the moment]
The old writer type sadly standing and never moving at all while behind him blonds Instagram and juggle vodka sodas
No effort to make the [show] video good, I think they are making it bad for a point. A reason.
The video and view were released gradually, if not artistically.
Bibby b[asket] ball jersey
Drunk white kids emoting wild and free and I've never felt that loose before.
Bibby took his white undershirt off
A tether on the mic to Kanye’s wrist
Throwing shit off the stage
The odd safety rig strapped to him
Kanye: Fashion show they were very mean to me. Tonight I'm gonna research it.
And he Broak into mean to me. [?]
All in auto tune – [“]You will feel my pain.[”]
Fuck public opinion he says and talks about merch.
I've sold more merch than the pope.
How do you keep people impoverished? You make me feel like I could be somebody.
The white kids in front are still.
This is my vision. I didn't have nothing to do with those prices.
I am the Tupac of apparel.
Steve jobs is gone.
The hallways are smoked over. [I’m leaving here, a little before the show’s over.]
K: I'm the greatest artist living.
