Kanye West's much discussed fifth album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was released today.† So we have that to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving week.
One of the biggest stories to emerge is that notoriously snooty and score-stingy music site Pitchfork awarded the album a perfect 10.0.
Does this signify the emergence of Kanye as the current king of pop having felled the biases of even the most ardent hipsters?† Or does it spell the inevitable end of Pitchfork as the leading taste-maker for music fans juuust off the mainstream?
Or does it mean that in today's economic climate anyone will write anything just to get pageviews to try to boost advertising dollars?
I'm guessing option three.
Therefore, in the vein of trolling for clicks, check out my review of the new Kanye West album, where I give it my lowest rating ever… a negative 2 out of 10!
I didn't feel like actually paying for the new Kanye album, so I just listened to the preview clips on iTunes.† No worries: 30 seconds per song was plenty for me to recall that Kanye's raps range the gambit from self-serving to innocuous.† The beats seemed claustrophobic, leaving me wanting less, not more: 15 seconds would have been plenty.† By the time I got to the preview clip of "Hell of a Life" where Kanye (I think?) spits autotuned nonsense to the melody of Black Sabbath's "Iron Man," I realized it was time to thank God for giving me the power to save $9.99.† This album deserves below a zero.
-2 stars out of 10
Ever wonder what would happen if the greatest rapper alive met the worst rapper alive?
Well, until Jay-Z does a song with 50 Tyson, this new song featuring Jay-Z with Kanye West will have to do.
"Power (Remix)" is all over the web today.† You gotta wonder why Kanye keeps doing this.† He wants people to think he's this great rapper and then he tosses himself on a song with someone who actually is a great rapper and embarrasses himself.
Midway through the track, he raps about wanting to keep the troops out of Iran.† For now, how about we just figure out a way to keep Kanye off Twitter?

Not for real things like government and law, but for important things like the best web meme of 2009!
It's the URLies, Urlesque's web awards that decide who the public's favorite web items are for the year. Is it Keyboard Cat or David After Dentist!? Who's it going to be!? The anticipation is killing me!
I haven't been this excited since I entered the 8th grade student council race as treasurer. Who needs actual politics? We all waste enough time online to admit to ourselves that we love all things internet, so let's be honest.
I'm pulling for Keyboard Cat. What about you!? Go vote!
Alright, the headline of this post is not true: Kanye West is seriously alive.† I just titled the post that for the lulz.
Rumors are that those rabble-rousers over at 4chan started this craziness.† But I'd like to believe it was started by the collective dreams of every human being on planet Earth.† You've read The Secret, right?
Why do I feel like just by mentioning 4chan I'm going to get this site hacked?† I guess I should start thinking of a new password.
Justin Timberlake stepped in front of Tina Fey and said "Imma let you finish" at the Emmys. It's a pretty good sign that a joke is dead when it gets said into the microphone on an awards show.
For the past week, the Kanye interruption has been the most popular meme on the internet. According to Know Your Meme, Google searches prove that for the past week, Kanye West has been bigger than Jesus.
Here's how the joke works on the web:
Pretty simple, huh? Like I said, even Justin Timberlake can do it.
Here's what I'm getting at: It needs to stop. See the end of that Jesus graph up there? That's where we are. And according to my step-by-step for the joke, this could be one of the most witless formulas ever. In just one week, Kanye has become more over-quoted and annoying than Napoleon Dynamite.
Yo, internet. I'm not gonna let you finish. Stop.
