Some of us quietly assemble our plans for global conquest and world domination in the pages of our private journals. But not Kanye West! Kanye knows that sharing is caring and pooped out a high-top sneaker’s worth of Twitter gems last night. At the top of Kanye’s to-do list? Starting a school/design center/Chinese buffet called DONDA, in honor of his late mother Donda West. And you — yes, you! — can be a part of it. Especially if you are one of the following…
”architects, graphic designers, directors musicians, producers, AnRs, writers, publicist, social media experts…app guys, managers, car designers, clothing designers, DJs, video game designers, publishers, tech guys, lawyers, bankers, nutritionist …doctors, scientist,teachers…”
DONDA’s goal, as of last night’s Twitter rant, is to “help simplify and aesthetically improve everything we see hear, touch, taste and feel. …To dream of, create, advertise and produce products driven equally by emotional want and utilitarian need.. To marry our wants and needs.” So, basically to Kanye-ify the world. But also! “To design the MTV Awards.” And oh, yeah, “Help education. School systems were designed to turn people into factory workers. Schools should be designed to prep human beings for real life.” I believe the children are our future.
AND SPIKE JONZE IS PART OF THE PLAN! One free Spike Jonze with every purchase! Says Kanye’s Twitter, “Spike Jonze and I want to do a Summer school that tries new forms of cuuriculim. [sic]” (Spelling optional.)
And if Kanye was our superintendent of schools, well, “Kids you should be able to take majors starting in grammar school like how it is at performing art schools.” Think of all the disillusioned 11-year-old liberal arts majors!
So, anyway, if working for a Kanye West appeals to you, there’s a Gmail for that.
