this is the 3rd post in a week about thao (bag of hammers! summer song! check the muxtape) but i can't help it, i am so into her. look at her, so cute. new coolest girl evs.
last night (after roof vogue-ing, please see post below) we went to see she&him play at nyu. correction, *I* went to see THAO & THE GET DOWN STAY DOWN (who opened) and DAVE went to crush on zooey deschanel in the flesh. turner and l. sturg came to check the scene.
a few OBSERVATIONS:
1. thao sounds like cat power on 500 red bulls and she is funny and she BEATBOXED and i was just basically feeling it 100%.
2. college students are fucking weird, man. everyone was like zombie faced while we were all cheering and dancing. i was totally mindblown when this girl pulled out her LAPTOP and was VIDEO CHATTING between sets! holy shit! the youth of america is SO BIZARRE!
3. this one might sting a bit. umm...
YEAH. I SAID IT!
zooey is so cute and pretty and stylish and all that, the sound of her voice is lovely, don't get me wrong but...it was kind of a snooze. she's been sick i guess and canceled a show here and canceled her press and so i think she was not on top of her game but..dang.
she seemed like she wanted to be anywhere but on that stage and i was getting sleepy. (turner and louise peaced out halfway through! haa). dunno, it's just not my scene. sorry.
i would rather listen to this instead.
