    Dammit! I was really hoping he would make it back to the tent. Sad, sad business those arctic winters.

    Beautiful yet devastating. Was this done in one of those christmas snow globe things?

    Ouch, the loveliness.

    Sheesh.

    I could watch this a million times. I would like to live in a snowglobe (although apparently it is treacherous).

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
