Please, don't kill yr. idols. Dear teenagers of 2007, in 15 years, I hope some cute new band's video sends you on a nostalgia trip for your crazy expensive jeans and your limited edition sneaks and handscreened, microcrafted t-shirts. You know, much in the same way that Pinkie and I, sitting up way too late on a Sunday watching MTV2's Subterranean (since the trains were fubar AND it's raining so we didn't go out as usual) did for our green Docs, flannel shirts, and and vintage Levi's during the video for the Silversun Pickups' "Lazy Eye."
"It's 'Dirty Boots,'" Pinkie said. "Are they gonna kiss and stage dive at the end?" And she was so right -- we're pretty sure someone involved in the production of the video for "Lazy Eye" had that darling Sonic Youth video in mind. Had you noticed this? Are you as old as we are? Is anyone? Compare and contrast below.

...And hey, isn't that Mike Mills (remember him?) as The Bartender? I suppose -- he is an actor and director now, you know. [Ed note: Before you think I'm a complete and utter idiot, pls. see comments.]
