Um, so I guess this is the full video for Kanye West's new single "Power".  Where is the rest of it?  It's only like a minute long.  I'm so confused.  I can't believe I stayed up to watch this last night when it premiered on MTV at 11 PM.  I was falling asleep but fought to stay up since I'm a big fan of this song and wanted to see what Kanye would put together but I was severely disappointed. 

I know he is trying to go the avante-garde, artsy route and shit but I really have no idea what's going on here and I really don't feel like wasting energy trying to figure it out.  I'll admit that it's really cool imagery but you couldn't give us the full song?  WTF!?!?

I did a little digging and found the song that Kanye sampled for this one.  I thought it might be a Beatles sample when I first heard the song a few months ago but then I quickly realized that they would ask for way too much money so I figured it had to be someone else.  The song is "21st Century Schizoid Man" by King Crimson.
