Every time Kanye West tweets the heat office basically downs tools – tools, in our case, being laptops, thrown spiraling to the floor, and fashion consumables flung swiftly out the window – before sitting in cross-legged in a circle and waiting in awe as we read each and every tweet, savouring every single letter. And this morning Kanye West tweeted twice, so you can probably imagine what productivity is going to be like today.
“I saw a pre-screening of Pacific Rim yesterday and it's easily one of my favorite movies of all time,” he said. “This is not another ‘Robot’ movie,” he continued. “Guillermo del Toro is a master.”
