As we prepare to enter a four-day weekend of tryptophanic bliss, we're feeling thankful for "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," the dazzling new album from Kanye West.

Below, a cornucopia of 2010 Yeezy-related coverage on Click Track.

July 29: Kanye joins Twitter. We follow him. Closely.

Aug. 6: The premiere of the "Power" video is so much more thrilling than the Arcade Fire live stream from Madison Square Garden.

Sept. 13: West premieres "Runaway" on a largely drama-free VMAs.

Oct 4: We recap Kanye's breathtaking "Saturday Night Live" performance.

Nov. 4: Our readers say Kanye's album cover for "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" is uglier than Taylor Swift's cover for "Speak Now." C'mon, people.
