Emmy Rossum + Adam Duritz > Weirdly Cuter than Zooey and Ben



Even in our most inebriated and/or masochistic mind-spirals, we've never attempted to make a mash-up of Emmy Rossum's lilting Imogen Heap-esque "Slow Me Down" and Counting Crows' classic dad-jam "Mr. Jones." Even though it might sound good. Some things should remain sacred. Yet Emmy Rossum, the person, and Adam Duritz, the only man in rock with a dread weave, may in fact be working on their own little mash-up—one that includes actual humans. The recently divorced actor/singer told People that she can "understand" why "chicks dig Adam Duritz" and cites his kindness, creativity and intelligence as reasons why said chicks would be into dude, alluding to the fact that maaaaybe it is she who is into him. The obvious mention would be like, "EW, she is 23, he is 45, and dating him would be like going for Steven Spielberg's hippie younger brother, mega Phish fan vibes, plus running yr fingers through a DUDE's weave is just like, not that appealing." But we'd also like to point out that Emmy Rossum went on tour with Counting Crows and Burning Spear over the summer and therefore is kind of like dating a second-year NYU student with a Nag Champa habit and a closet full of climbing gear. So, as fans of love, we are gonna have to go ahead and briefly co-sign this one, and hope we never have to think about it again. Ever. EVER EVER EVER.
