Lex Fridman Podcast

I understand that Kanye doesn't wanna be called by his social security name anymore but...

'Ye' is just kind of... abrupt.

It sounds like you're saying "Yay" but in a super sarcastic kinda way.

Personally I think "Kanye" is a great name and he could have dropped the last name and just kept it at that and it would have been fine.

I've never even heard of anyone else with that name.

But whatevs...

I feel like the reason most people are still calling him Kanye is for one thing, SEO. Seriously. The other reason is because, let's face it, Kanye a lil crazy.

He's not so crazy that he doesn't make sense, he totally makes sense and he's right about shit. But...



That said, slightly cray or not, I like Kanye better than I like Lex.

I'd never seen Lex get his ass handed to him (elegantly, Ye style), so God bless.

Lex essentially tried to get Ye to bow down over those tired old talking points...

Ye didn't submit and he never should.

End of story.

So...

Lex = whatever. Ye = 2024.

I tried to search and see how tall Lex is just out of curiosity and then I found discussions where people are making a lot of similar jokes, so I just didn't realize it was basically a meme.

One guy even said he'd jogged past Lex in the park one day...

I feel like people gargled Lex's nads too much in the beginning and he got an overinflated sense of self-importance and now he thinks he's equal to Ye.

Oh my God, it's Ye.

I can't believe it.

This is huge.

Probably an even bigger guest than Elon Musk.

Brief summary

Lex: That's not true about the media!
Ye:   Yes it is.
Lex: OK but you're not supposed to say it!
Ye:  I'm a top 5 writer in human existence. Here's a sketch of my water city. I like zippers.

100% accurate summary.

And I mean, when you put it that way...

Like, why did I ever even like Lex.

I've caught maybe 15 or so of his interviews. He's OK getting a decent convo out of science/tech people, but Kanye is out of his league...
too fast and multidirectional.
And Lex is not really a boat rocker. Failed to muster a single challenge to ghoulish Albert Bourla in a Dec '21 episode.
After that I wasn't expecting much from him other than the occasional interesting guest.

It is pretty funny that he would have a big enough ego to tell Ye to "have the balls" to submit in the correct manner. Lol

I know... pretty disgusting, TBH.

Looks like Kanye needs to be very careful who he considers friends and who he lets into his circle.

Way out of his league. I didn't expect him to really be so far out of his league, TBH...

I dunno what I expected, but it wasn't that.

Kinda crazy...

Even Elon "Rocketman" Musk, "Richest Man in the World" is in Lex's league.

Kanye must be a litmus test of the soul.

(Lex failed. Lol. Not miserably, but still a fail.)

Even Elon feels like a bit of a joke next to Kanye...
