Earlier this afternoon, Some Songs Considered golden boy Justin McCarthy and I – along with friends of the site Nate Scott# and Ben Wormald – attended the Washington DC screening of Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3, and while there are most certainly a baker’s dozen worth of hot-takes yet to be written (which will most certainly flood your newsfeeds over the next few hours), the truth is that this event was something that deserves more than a half-day’s turnaround worth of processing time.

Fortunately, there is a social media network that is built solely around the concept of real-time analysis, no matter how debased, so Justin and I made sure to take full advantage of the liberal cellphone policy in the theater.

This was a gospel album.

And honestly, the fact that the whole thing actually worked and wasn’t just a TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES sign with “Real Friends” in the background is a god damn miracle.
