never understood pitchfork hate and i never will. just another website that panders to a certain audience, just like this one.
Personally, I don't hate Pitchfork at all. I think they do a really good job with content and promoting good music. I just hate the people that I've met IRL that flock to that website. I've never actually had a conversation with someone who is of "the pitchfork crowd" and didn't want to smack them a few times afterwards. Maybe I'm judging the whole by a few, but damn they were some of the most pretentious douches I've ever met. Every. Single. Time.
