Guess he doesn't want anyone to steal his "revolutionary" stage set up (slanted floors) and "innovative" show idea (reading poorly written lines back to a computer voice over) or "hi-tech gadgetry" (pushing images of 'buttons' on a video screen)
Good thing my memory isn't so good or I might try to attempt to recreate this unprecedented show.
If I was Superfly/AC, I'd be doing everything I could to distance myself from him, even to the point of not even acknowledging his presence at the festival, and probably to the point of apologizing to fans.
He doesn't need to have any pictures up on the site, that show's nothing for anyone to be proud of.

I don't know if anyone has said this already somewhere else, but I think its interesting that Kanye hasn't addressed this on his blog. I definitely expected him to, but maybe since there was such backlash from his last rant, he's just trying to pretend it didn't happen like Superfly is?? Just odd how no one is addressing it at all... something of this magnitude and with this kind of press coverage, not to mention the disappointment to fans, is worthy of a statement.
I probably wouldn't have been as disgruntled as I was if someone had come out and said something to the crowd about why it was taking so long or if Kanye had said anything to the crowd. He could have said "I hate hippies, Bonnaroo is the worst thing ever and you can all go to hell" and it probably would have been better. It kinda seemed like he thought he was practicing his show in the mirror and nobody else was around to watch.
i can't help but to feel a little sorry for him... i'm sure he didn't want everything to happen the way it did.
all he had to do was announce the lateness, apologize for sucking, acknowledge the crowd at least once.......and an array of other things could have been done to prevent the hatred spewed upon him. he brought it on himself thinking he was bigger than bonnaroo.
his big ass swolen head (maybe from the car crash) caused this backlash against kanye and his ego.
like robert randolph said, "theres no place for people like that at the roo. we all paid to have a good time. bonnaroo is for the audience. kanye sucks"- more like a paraphrase cause i dont really remember exactly what he said, but it was good and made me jump up from my seat and dance around even though i could barely feel my body by that point.
