Hello. Sorry I haven't been adding my biting cultural commentary amongst Grainne's lovely fashion illustrations, but it's been a wild last month. Meanwhile, Mr Kanye West put his entire short film Runaway on YouTube, and it's worth a watch. He seems to realize he's not a great actor, and keeps his dialog & lip-sinking to a minimum. Advantages: the art direction is beautiful, and it dwells on the modern ballet dance for a good 50% of the movie, and of course the music from his album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" is pretty damn good. Disadvantages: Hmm, this could be discussed in the comments, I don't want to be too hasty with criticism. The plot is reminiscent of Shakespeare's ambiguous poem "The Phoenix & the Turtle," about the love of a mortal with a phoenix - - perhaps Shakespeare's strange text could serve as commentary on Kanye's allegorical music video, or visa versa:
Property was thus appall'd,
That the self was not the same;
Single nature's double name
Neither two nor one was call'd.
Reason, in itself confounded,
Saw division grow together;
To themselves yet either-neither,
Simple were so well compounded.
