What if you were in Vampire Weekend but you weren’t Ezra? Can you imagine anything better? You probably get to make out all day but with all of the smart fans because the showboat dreamgirls who saw you on SNL are all lead singer focused. You bring suitors back to your apartment (back on the Upper West Side because now you can afford the rent. Or maybe down payment in our low tide economy) and tell them about how Wes Anderson’s main protegé directed your video and that’s only because you turned down Wes, you wanted that new shit (Internet, the dude’s name is AYOADE). Then you joke and say, Just kidding, Wes Anderson thinks we are corny but I don’t give a fuck, I am traveling the world buying socks with every country that I visit’s flag because what else are you supposed to do when you blend rock star with absolute modesty, glee club supernova. Man, what a life. Fuck the haters, day in day out.
