>Can someone please tell me what they like about Kanye West?
His music is execrable.
He carries on like a jerk.
He’s as ugly as a hat full of arseholes.
Who the heck voted this guy not one, not two but twelve Grammy Awards?
Now you might be asking yourself whether I’m just too old and unhip to ‘get’ what it is people like about Kanye West.
And you’d be right. I am too old and unhip to get it.
But here’s something that you might not suspect if you’ve read this far.
I have seen Kanye West live in concert.
That’s right. Live in concert.
Not that I wanted to.
He was a support act for a proper band – U2.
Let me give you the tip. His performance was truly terrible. That surprised me somewhat given all the hype about him.
Given a choice between going to a Kanye West concert and going surfing – which I also hate – I’d choose surfing.
Unless someone had a radio playing Kanye West.
That’d be the pits.
>I hate surfing.
There. I said it.
Sun, sand and surf have become an iconic part of Aussie culture so it’s no surprise that we have had so many champions including the first world champion, Midget Farrelly, Nat Young, Mark Richards and Mick Fanning along with 7 time female champion Layne Beachley.
I don’t care.
And the fact that I’ve never surfed hasn’t influenced my decision.
