I had a nightmare last night about the kickoff of Affiliate Summit West 2006. Once again, crowd favorite Corey Newhouse will be back as the MC, and that’s where my dream started.
We were talking over the agenda for the conference when I had a brainstorm. I thought it would be a great idea for Corey to assume the name Kanye East (a take on Kanye West), and I would write a rap song for him that lampooned the players in affiliate marketing.
It was going to be this grand production in the spirit of the opening ceremonies of the Oscars when Billy Crystal used to do a song and dance about the big movies.
No need to tell me that it’s a ridiculously bad idea – I know, it was a nightmare.
I know this is a bit off topic, but I needed to exorcise it from my mind, and I figured if I streamed it onto my keyboard, I could get rid of it.
Rest assured, Corey’s MC work will continue to be his hallmark comedic stylings laced with references to Vegas, fatherhood, and affiliate marketing.
But if I have my way, he’ll enter the stage to the tune of Gold Digger. Good song.
