There are a few things that will always entertain me.

Lately, Pitchfork has been doing what any sensible collective of media-obsessed opinion-slingers do in a year that ends with a nine: creating lengthy lists of the very best of the past ten years.

Pure joy, distilled down to just over three minutes.
