(Vampire Weekend comes on my iTunes Genius mix)
Me: Did you know these guys have the number one album in America right now?
A: (lip curled in visible contempt) Who?
Me: Vampire Weekend.
A: What do they do?
Me: Uh, I dunno. I guess they are these snarky East Coast / Ivy League boys that have a kind of laid-back, Afro-pop thing going on.
A: What do they sing about?
Me: I don’t know. Being privileged. How they don’t give a fuck about the Oxford comma. Guys that wear keffiyahs that don’t care about Palestine.
A: I’m so sick of 22 year old boys singing…about…
Me: Their lives?
