this morning around 7:15, after dropping off my sweet at work, driving north on inner lake shore i saw what looked to be an oversized-load truck driving slowly southbound by the mies van der rohe towers. as i got got closer i saw a guy was standing on the back of what looked like a moving van with tall walls surrounding him and really really bright lights and a camera pointing at him. i spent the next block and a half or so staring up at that rather than the road.
anti-climax of the story is that it was kanye west. i assume it was a video they were shooting, but dunno since he was just standing there, 20 feet above the street, and my windows were closed.
i like kanye, so this put a smile on my face.
