05.27.11 – double shot friday, kanye west and king crimson

I love it when I’m listening to a song and somebody recognizes a sample in the song that I didn’t even know was a sample. This happened with today’s double shot, when my roommate identified the “21st Century Schizoid Man” in Kanye West’s “Power” as a sample from the band King Crimson, a band that most people have never even heard of. Check it out for yourself.

This is even more appropriate for today because as I was sitting on the porch reading today, a guy running by wearing headphones looked straight at me and said “Fuck it, the world’s ours.” I assume that he was singing along with this Kanye song . . . or he hates people who read.
