The Rich Girls Are Weeping

02 June 2006

Embarassing, I know. Shhh! Don't tell anyone, but I think I'll always have a crush on Death Cab for Cutie guitarist/producer Chris Walla, with his expensive haircut and deadly cheekbones and well, killer chops (seriously, watching him perform is fascinating) -- not to mention that whole running (setting up?) really nice recording studio thing (hott!). See him and the Gibs rip it up, acoustic style, on Sessions at AOL. It's a nice set, though Mr. Ben Gibbard's comment in the interview about how they're no longer flying the indie rock flag was a little uh, depressing.

Oh Walla, you big liarpants. If you weren't making a living off of being in DCFC, you'd make a great living off recording other people's records. Don't lie. You wouldn't be a barista.

Ryan: Oh, those were the days, all right! (Please don't ever make me think about the Gibs in the buff again, 'kay?)

Kate: I know, right? Can we smack him upside the head? Whatevs Walla!

pinkie would like to register that she so has never owned a death cab record. ever. it's that genre of indie i don't understand, which is joined to my suspicion that the gibbs has no naughty bits to cover with said record from the equally defanged mr. meloy. as cindy pointed out re: a certain mr. oberst, the masculinity that is presented in this genre is so unthreatening. of course this whole argument makes me embarrassed, since i have to admit that whatever i'm listening to must bring teh seX0r. =P
