Kanye West is an asshole. He doesn't realize that the whole point of being moral, caring, and religious is to center your life around helping others and the greater good. The more he claims he "deserves" Grammy's or "spots in the Bible" (by the way, I don't think this article has much validity), it shows that his basic mentality is "LOOK HOW RELEVANT AND THOUGHTFUL I AM. PRAISE ME". That's no hero to anybody. Piss off.
The syndie episodes wouldn't have anything to do with the DVD, since it's the same contract from the day it entered second-run until one year after it leaves first-run on Fox and the first syndication cycle ends.
