This Conspiracy Theory About Kanye West Might Explain His Strange Trump Obsession

This Conspiracy Theory About Kanye West Might Explain His Strange Trump Obsession

Kanye West has been shocking and horrifying everyone with his support of Donald Trump, his extremely messed up statements about slavery and racism in general, and his absolutely wild tweets. No one is exactly sure what’s happening over in Calabasas, but it’s seemingly not good.

Twitter user and @Snowcone96 has a theory. If you get through the whole thing, you’ll either be completely on board or horrified by the lengths fans are going to in order to excuse Kanye’s behavior.

He starts by introducing us to artist Tremaine Emory who @Snowcone96 seems to believe is one of the few people in on an elaborate performance art piece by West:

Then @Snowcone96 shares tweets form Kanye about certain specific artists, suggesting they’re alluding to the current “project” that Kanye is doing.

Especially this piece by Joseph Beuys, where he locked himself in a room with a coyote (someone please call animal protection service on the past). But in Kanye’s piece (that @Snowcone96 is imagining) the coyote is racism?

Kanye has also referenced Andy Kaufman, who is known as a subversive comedian whose work often went to such uncomfortable places he’d be booed off stage. Kaufman was really more of a performance artist than a comedian. Lord knows, a lot of what Kanye has been doing is extremely uncomfortable, but there’s no proof any of it is a performance. Unless you believe @Snowcone96:

There are also references in Kanye’s tweets to “the prestige,” which is also the name of a film. In the film, the prestige is pulling off a magic trick so incredible no one can figure out how you do it. Both Kanye and Emory have been making references to the movie, it seems, and Emory has also mentioned Kaufman.

It’s all ART. ART!! But @Snowcone96 has no idea why or what the ultimate purpose is, nor does he seem to have a clue as to why Kanye would be sowing so much hurt and discord to promote some art idea.

Also, his ideas are ripped off from Reddit:

That’s okay. Kanye’s new album would have to be absolutely transcendent to cut through this mess, and in my opinion, Kaufman is overrated.

Aliens Might Be Real And It Seems Like People Are Too Busy To Care

Over the weekend, The New York Times released an exhaustive report on a secret and not fully declassified government program that studied U.F.O sightings within the Department of Defense that seems to indicate there have been documented alien visits to our planet. 

The reports says there have been many sighting of aircraft, as well as recovered materials that include alloys that don’t exist on earth and which had “strange effects” on the people who handled them. Whatever.

Perhaps this would be big news literally any other year, but with the pressing and overwhelming issues in politics, culture, and abroad, the most anyone seems to be mustering for aliens being real is a “meh.” Folks are responding with less fervor than they do to a Trump tweet, perhaps because a tweet from Trump is more likely to start a nuclear war. If aliens have been visiting, that’s fine. But did they vote third party?!

Until a space ship literally lands on the White House and crushes the entire Trump administration, I don’t think anyone will really get as excited about this as they should be. We want to see them, if you know what I mean.

'Game Of Thrones' Might Have Revealed The Cure For Greyscale Last Night

(Spoilers ahead, obviously!)

If you watched the season premiere of Game of Thrones last night, you know that Sam Tarly is currently studying to be a maester, though most of his duties involve taking care of people with greyscale and cleaning up feces.

You also would have noticed that Jorah Mormont is one of Sam’s patients.

But possibly what you didn’t notice is that Sam might have totally found a way to cure Jorah’s greyscale in one of the books he was reading about dragonglass. 

REALLY. Reddit user Beastmodekait took a screenshot of one of Sam’s books at just the right moment to capture half a page about the medicinal uses of dragonglass.

Obviously, the screenshot doesn’t reveal the entire passage, but it does appear that the page talks about ingesting (presumably ground) dragonglass as cures for diseases. The author apparently dismisses this claim, saying that it could hurt “gullible” people by having them waste time and money eating dragonglass instead of  using “practical treatments.”

As Beastmodekait pointed out, Shireen’s greyscale was restricted just to her face (though not cured entirely), and she grew up in Dragonstone—which we now know has large stores of dragonglass with which she could have come into contact. It fits! And it also happens to be a great excuse to get Jon and Dany to finally have a Targaryen family reunion.
