    Yep, I said it. Kim Kardashiand and Kayne West have been voted by Tim Magazine as being among the top 100 most influential through the past year. I have never been one to downplay achievements by others, or not give credit where credit is due. But most 'influential'? In the world? I can't find an angle to anything either one of them have done that I would want my children to be influenced by. The only thing I can think of is to be self successful. Even then, there are so many ways in which both of these people did it wrong.

    So I have to ask, what makes them seem so influential to Time Magazine? Kanye turning himself into some sort of Jesus figure to his fans? Kim... being... on a reality show?

    Come on, Time. Do you need more readers that bad?

    Yeah, that's ridiculous. I need to check out this list. You would think that Time Magazine (it's not TMZ or People after all) would be at least just as considered with politicians, billionaire inventors, scientists, philosophers, astronomers, etc to focus on the likes of Jeebus and the girl that got famous from a sex tape.

    Yep. There has to be some sort of reason for this. Other than seriousness, of course. I feel like the people making the list were all sitting around at 3 am, eating pizza and drinking, staring at the clock wishing to go home, and said, " You know what'd be funny? If we add Kim'ye to the list to mess with the boss." And somehow it made it through. You know, like the unpopular prom queen affect. Everyone votes for her thinking the other people won't, and bam! Kim'ye makes the list!

    The unpopular prom queen effect.. yes! Gotta be, right? How else do you explain it? I mean, what are they using they're massive influence for anyways? How to shamelessly self-promote? How to ruin classic and proactive photo art? How to ruin award's shows and get people to call you the second coming? I really hope another power couple comes along and 'de-thrones' them, that is actually good for our culture.
