The Pitchfork 500

The Pitchfork 500, which is's guide to the best songs between 1977-2006, is out now. I have two copies, just in case you wondering (great christmas gift for audibly handicapped).
You should check it out. Here is a snippet about the Nas classic 'It ain't hard to tell' from his seminal debut 'Illmatic'.

Video: Kanye on Conan - Heartless

First post today is an easy one for me, embedding a pitchfork found vid of Kanye doing his Heartless thing on Conan O'Brien. If you haven't already done so, go buy the album. It's worth purchasing even just for the three track patch of gold in the middle of the album (Paranoid, Robocop, Streetlights).

He's sharpened it down into blog form, and yet has still been to keep posts from 4 years ago. Woohay! Anyway here's a youtube from his site featuring ATrak and Mr West comparing beards.
