Death Cab SUCKS.
Ben and Zooey at an Obama fundraiser in August. Maybe my dude Barack will help get this engagement vetoed.
This is actually pretty old news, but I had to share my period of mourning with you, my fellow Closeteers.
The lovely and talented Zooey Deschanel is engaged to singer/songwriter/Mopey McMoperson Ben Gibbard, of Death Cab for Cutie and Postal Service fame.
It’s no secret that I pretty much love Zooey. And that I had about as much chance to get with her as Lloyd did with Mary Swanson. But C’MON. BEN GIBBARD? Can you get ANY more cliche than that? Rising indie rock starlet engaged to another indie star, one who really helped usher in the whole “indie is cool” movement? UGH.
Mourn with me, Steel Crew. I’ve lost her.
At least there are silver linings: (1) If a shaggy hipster like Ben Gibbard can get a Zooey, then technically, so can I (all I need is guitar skills and platinum records, no sweat) and (2) there’s always Katy Perry.
