Kanye West Meets Wes Anderson in Tumblr Mashup
The Kanye Wes Tumblr has been around for a little while, but with the recent release of West’s Yeezus and Anderson’s Grand Budapest Hotel just around the corner, it’s time to revisit this marriage of two very distinct styles.
The blog was started in August 2012, and it manages to merge the lyrics of the popular rapper with the imaginative movies and characters found in the award-winning director’s films surprisingly well. In one mashup, the Fantastic Mr. Fox crew raising their glasses in “a toast for the douchebags.” In another, a video clip of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou gets dubbed over with “Runaway.” And in more still, West’s lyrics are tacked on to photos of Sam and Suzy (Moonrise Kingdom), Margot Tenenbaum (The Royal Tenenbaums) and more from Anderson’s universe.
