Also, has anyone listened to the 11-minute Kanye song yet? I haven't heard it, is it worth checking out?
At first glance, I see the merit in this article, but it is also so incredibly frustrating. I need to think more clearly about why it bothers me. Though a quote like this:
FK: When you were reading all these lyrics, did you ever imagine what they would sound like spoken?
SA: It's funny: I mostly imagined them in my internal "textual" voice — the voice I tend to use for all reading. Which is probably a ghost version of my own.
FK: So all the same tempo I'm guessing.
SA: Yeah, basically the same. And then I'd read some of my favorite passages aloud to my wife, and she would laugh at me because it sounded ridiculous.
makes it easy to see why I'm irritated. My emphasis, by the way.
