Kanye- He definitely graduated

Today i decided that one of my favourite albums of all time is Kanye West's Grammy winning Graduation. It has such a variety of amazing songs that suit every mood and moment. This album got Kanye an amazing 8 Grammy nominations which he won 4 of including Best Rap single and album.
There was so much hype leading up the album as Kanye and 50 Cent announced they would release there albums around the same time and they both said that their album would outsell the other rappers. Which Kanye did win, the album went double platinum in America and Canada and went platinum in the UK and got to number 1 in the album charts in each of these countries.
This album has really seen Yeezy go on to great things, his follow up album 8o8's and Heartbreaks is an album which divided opinion all over the world, I for one love this album, it gives a real dark insight into his life as a global superstar and the tough times he had faced after his mum died. This album was not as successful as Graduation but still went platinum in 3 countries.
His next album for me displays his genius better than any of his previous albums. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is exactly as titled. Beautiful, very dark and twisted in more ways than one. But this is what gained it, its brilliant critical reception across the world with many people branding it as the best album of 2010 and a work of art that explore West like none of his previous albums have before.
personally i think this man is genius his passion for art and fashion is shown in his music and his personality, although he is very controversial, he is fully aware he is a global super star.

I never really started watching Lost when it first arrived on channel 4 in 2004, but recently i needed something new too watch, so i gave it a go. I tend to enjoy these types of shows, i loved Flashforward and was disappointed when it got dropped. I started to watch lost and instantly got addicted, I started to stay up into the early hours of the morning with my eyes glued to the screen, its fucking awesome!!! 
I think whoever wrote the first few episodes, is genius. From that moment when u meet the main characters u feel like u know them, it gives u flashes of their past, memories that are relevant to each epiosde. With each flash is a new insight to how they feel or how past experiences and how they will react to different situations. I am about half way through season 3, not one episode has failed to throw up a new challenge to the survivors, a new question to the watchers. I really don't have the slightest clue as to what can happen in the next episode i watch its so unpredictable, thats why i love it though. I know i'm only half way through i am anticipating the end with excitement and disappointment, i don't want it to let me down, but im sure it won't!!!!!!

Take 2

Hey, the first blog was pretty limited so here is another one!!!! I am watching Lost currently, i never really got into when it was shown on T.V but i am hooked now. I'm only on series two but i am steadily working my way along it and have really enjoyed it. Other shows i have watched recently are things like Jersey Shore, and yes i do love it.
Who doesn't enjoy watching people getting absolutely hammered, i do. I also watch Geordie Shore which is good but just not as good as Jersey. I was born in North Yorkshire and i like to think of myself as a Northerner, which i am cause i am Scottish :D I have moved around in my life a lot, due to my dad being in the army, which he has been for 26 years, yeah that's fucking commitment!! I had been at my secondary school for 5 years, which is the longest i had ever been at a school, i boarded there and met some awesome people, including my girlfriend who is called Katie. I am going to a sixth form in September and hopefully she will come to, as she has already been accepted as well. I have a passion for football, although i have not properly played for a few months as i tore ligaments in my foot just before my R.S exam, which was not a good situation.
Well that's a more in depth analysis of my life so far, i will be back to tell you much more of my opinions and views on any random shit i can :)
