I’m sure by now most of you have heard Kanye West’s album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. On the track “Blame Game”, which is probably my favorite song on the disc, he recites an excerpt from a poem and “cites” the name Chloe Mitchell. From that point most were wondering, “Who is Chloe Mitchell?”. At least, that’s what I wondered. Upon my initial research I found that Chloe Mitchell was a character on the soap opera, The Young and the Restless. But then I thought, well that doesn’t make sense. So, after searching a little further (cause I wanted to know) I learned that Chloe Mitchell is of course an actual person and the author of the poem. Her site iamchloemitchell.tumblr.com gives a glimpse into her world and she even speaks on how her poem made it into the song. You can also read the entire poem there. I admire her passion for writing and philosophical thinking. I even “borrowed” a Mark Twain quote I found interesting on her site to post on my facebook page. Seems to be someone with a great spirit. Peace & Love!!!
