The Very Best

I have never been to the place that serves the world’s greatest cup of coffee or the best apple pie. I don’t know where these places are. My travels in life have not led me to sample these items, but I have found the location of one such beverage that is better at in Durham, N.C. then any other place I have ever consumed the drink. It is so good that I will make the claim that it is the world’s greatest. Yes people you should travel from wherever you live to Durham, N.C. to try the best root beer in the world. The Chipotle on Erwin Road has the world’s greatest root beer. The best Barq’s root beer pours of the soda fountain at this location. I was as shocked to taste this liquid delight as you are to read that the best root beer resides in North Carolina. But it’s true. I wouldn’t lead you astray.

It's about time...

… for a new Kanye West album, not another 808s & Heartbreak but a rap album. Ye hasn’t put one out since 2007s Graduation and with no new album scheduled for this year I must look to 2010 for a new West album. I can only hope he has something planned. Why the sudden need, well, Jay-Z’s BP3 leaked early and I wasn’t blown away. It made me think that I have not been blown away by a new album in a long time, THAT SUCKS. The only other album I’m excited for this year is Lupe Fiasco’s L.A.S.E.R.S., but that’s not coming until December and his stuff has a history of getting pushed back. So I’m left with the hope that Kanye is in the studio right now (we know for a fact Steve is, even though he wants us to shut it down). Four albums. Four classics.

And yes, I am listening to Kanye as I am writing this.

Album Rankings
1. Late Registration (Heard ‘Em Say, Gone, Roses, Diamonds are Forever)
2. The College Dropout (Family Business, Two Words, Jesus Walks)
3. Graduation (Flashing Lights, Stronger, Good Morning, Can’t Tell Me Nothing)
4. 808s & Heartbreak (Welcome to Heartbreak, Heartless, Robocop)

For your listening pleasure my favorite all-time Kanye song - Family Business from The College Dropout.
