However! Upon learning that La Shea was leaving back to LA, I thought to myself- why not close the cycle! She was leaving in three weeks from the time we decided to go ahead with it though, (she left three days ago) so we hit the ground running with a follow-up video for good ol' times sake. La Shea is a gem and takes me back to a time where my biggest concerns were where to sit at lunchtime and if I could stay out late on the weekends. I will miss her, but I'm so glad we got to have one last hoorah before she took off to start this new chapter.
I figure at the very least it's a good opportunity for me and Eliav to play around with green-screens, and for me to try not to laugh instantaneously when trying to be serious and/or intimidating. I also like having a prepared answer in case anyone asked why there were two Kanyes and no Kim... Prepared answer being: Because Kanye's ego is too big for just one person. Real answer being: Ain't no way we're getting naked for an internet video. I mean, exorbitant amounts of money- of course!! But internet video... Meh.
I also grew tremendous amounts of respect for Kanye, overdosing on his interviews and analyzing the Bound 2 video probably more than any person should ever have to (I know the timecode and duration of shots, people!!!). If I created the stuff he has, I might demand genius status as well. And the failure for the public to recognize such would definitely result in unsavory, frustrated behavior on my part. Suffice it to say, I could learn a lesson or two from Kanye's confidence.
