WTF is a construction bag? It's a garbage bag.

Kanye is a musical genius. That has zero correlation to his ability in any other field, such as marketing, clothing design, or choice of spouse.

I have never heard them referred to as construction bags.  They are contractor bags, and, yes, that's basically a really big and durable garbage bag.

Working in and around construction, I've heard both, along with plain old "trash bags".  Nomenclature depends on who's running the job, but it's always a thick plastic bag that's gonna stand up to more than your average hefty, and works well in place of visqueen in a pinch, with a side of duct tape.

Dear Kanye:

The only reason you're famous is because you lusted after Kim Kardashian after you saw that piece of a joke Ray J piss all over her and thought "hey! there's a woman who would do whatever it takes to be famous" and you jumped right on board but she knew you were crazy to begin with and resisted you until you saddled her with 4 kids and a mental break down. Well done. Now go ahead and fade into obscurity because no one cares what you have to say or design or create.

My proof is Kim would NEVER date an unfamous person and that her career trajectory (and fame) is based upon dating a succession of B List singers and athletes up to successful comedian and rappers.

Remember, Kim doesn't have any talent.

100% this.

Also, all Kanye ever farking did was speed up soul vocals and put loud distorted beats over it. Like, it's not that good, he's been doing the same shiat for literally 25 years.

It was a team effort. It might not have happened without Quincy, although Michael was big enough by the time Off The Wall came out that he would have sold records regardless. Also, a ton of his success was also the performance aspect, which he was absolutely a genius at. He even got that shoe patent.

But yes, Quincy was a huge part of it. They were both geniuses at what they did.

IMMA LET YOU FINISH BUT KANYE WAS FAMOUS BEFORE KIM

[Fark user image image 425x251]

My proof is Kim would NEVER date an unfamous person and that her career trajectory (and fame) is based upon dating a succession of B List singers and athletes up to successful comedian and rappers.

Remember, Kim doesn't have any talent.

Ray J wasn't famous when she farked him and her mom released the tape. His sister Brandy was and had just plowed through an intersection killing a woman. Kris knew she could both take the heat off Brandi and throw it on Kim and make her famous.

Ryan Seacrest the Pest did the rest.


Close. I knew about Ray J waaay back when from Moesha days, but then again I was in the Atlanta hip hop scene in the 90s.  So I'll give you that he wasn't an A-Lister, but he was on the cover of Jet Magazine in 2000. He might have missed yours and white America's radar (if you were even alive then).

Fark user imageView Full Size


And the part about the sex tape, again Ray J was more famous than Kim K, to your point, given that his famous sister was in hot water with that manslaughter charge, (you might have about it being a calculated move to take the heat off of Brandi), but don't forget the momager Kris negotiated the release of the tape to further Kim's career. It couldn't have been released without her permission and she was paid for the performance. That sex tape was in 2007. By that time Kanye had several Grammys and broken world records.

I only care enough to point out it was NOT Kim who made Kanye famous, you're 180 degrees wrong about that. Cheers, Kitty.

I was gonna say. Theres this stupid trend for high-end labels ripping off the lives of poor people to sell their stupidly priced shiat.

Seeing those pics I had flashbacks to the swap meets my parents used to take me to where bags or boxes of clothes from department stores that couldn't be sold anymore were put out and people were free to take what they wanted (price was based on weight)

I guess he wanted rich people to experience the thrill of digging through a pile of clothes then fighting with each other for that last M sized garment in the pile.

TDWCom29: Kitty2.0: TDWCom29: Kitty2.0: Dear Kanye:

The only reason you're famous is because you lusted after Kim Kardashian after you saw that piece of a joke Ray J piss all over her and thought "hey! there's a woman who would do whatever it takes to be famous" and you jumped right on board but she knew you were crazy to begin with and resisted you until you saddled her with 4 kids and a mental break down. Well done. Now go ahead and fade into obscurity because no one cares what you have to say or design or create.

///(I say this as a cam model)

Uh, noooooo. He was mega-famous way before that. Hell, he was more famous than Kim when they married

Yeah. No. Kim had been famous since OJ.

??????????????????

We have very different definitions of fame. Her dad was known during the OJ trial, and he was maybe the...8th most important person of that trial. No none knew wtf Kim was back then except maybe a passing mention of Rob's kids

Are you doing a bit right now? Because if so I'd like to know so I can stop this


He's wrong. None of Kardashian kids were known or in the limelight like they are now. Kim wasn't really big until her porn tape.

Like you said, her father was definitely well known during the trial, and not even the biggest name.

Yep, I remember being utterly confused who the hell these people were and why I should care they made a sex tape.

Saying Kim was more well known is comically inaccurate.

I listen to metal and even I knew who Kanye was (mostly because of Saints Row 3 but still)

Kanye's debut album was 2004. Her sex tape was released in 2007, which launched KUWTK.

I'm not as old as you people are and knew of Kim long before Kanye so if you want to split hairs, I guess it depends on which demo you're a part of...I was a part of the Atlanta hip hop scene but never whatever the hell it is Kanye does. (What does he do?)

When he did what he did to Taylor at the Grammys I legit said, "who the fark is this clown?" And then his Kim obsession was revealed.

At any rate, I stand by the sex tape being released to take the heat off Brandi and put it on Ray J.
