On the threat of by no means getting an invitation to Sunday Service, I’ve to say I like the stark design theme of Kim and Kanye’s home the place the predominant concepts appear to be “what if all sharp edges and unforgiving surfaces?” and “ECRU!” Their home appears to be like just like the set of a Star Trek episode the place Kirk and Spock meet a society of monks who reside under the radioactive floor of an alien planet. Spock briefly considers becoming a member of the order earlier than Uhuru realizes that the monks have utilizing the flickering mild of their historic fireplace to hypnotize Spock. Spock rips off his MAGA hat and returns to the Enterprise on the final minute. A traditional!
The snuggly, hygge vibe of the fluffy pillars provides a welcome if perplexing softness to the in any other case extreme panorama. I do not thoughts it, regardless that I resolutely don’t perceive it. They type of appear to be props from a Honey, I Shrunk the… film. Like, in actual life they’re little tufts of Q-tip fuzz however to the eponymous shrunken individuals they stand up like a tender and immovable fortress. Admit it, you’ll completely watch a film referred to as Honey, I Shrunk the Kardashians. Kanye is engaged on a groundbreaking mission with a shady scientist (performed by Jonah Hill) when issues go awry proper in the midst of filming an episode of KUWTK, trapping Kim, Kris, Kourtney, and Khloe in a tiny world as Kanye and, controversially, Tristan Thompson, should race in opposition to time to embiggen them once more.
The concept of Kim working from a large ant after which sitting down within the confessional to complain about it’s going to maintain me for the remainder of my days.
Anyway, again to the home. To cite John Lennon out of context, “So… that is Khristmas.” Kim and Kanye are richer than I’ll ever be and so they don’t have any possessions in any respect. What is that this, Walden Pond West?
The place is all of your stuff?! Why do not you may have any mud? How are we going to make a Honey, I Shrunk the Kardashians cinematic universe when there’s actually nothing on any of the surfaces? They are going to shrink down and it will simply appear to be they’re on a fair bigger clean expanse. They will be trying round like John Travolta in Pulp Fiction however on a film set that hasn’t had the CGI added but.
In any case, kongratulations to Kim and Kanye and Krampus on efficiently placing the Marie Kondo again in Marie Khristmas.
