What a disgusting troll she is. And he looks like he's subsisted solely on a diet of Chicken McNuggets from the moment he was born. So gross. Thank god they didn't reproduce.

This is the best post on BV ever. The last line: "zooey...keep yuh head up sister! xx" really nailed it. The xx sign-off leads me to suspect that Frohawk wrote it. Really, I'm not surprised. Who else could be that funny and that cool?

The reason you all hate her is because she has been marketed directly to you. White, cute, nerdy, vintage clothing, off-beat taste, mediocre music. You hate her because she is you.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 7:47 AM

10:07 thinks it's cool to post from Boise. Probably the gayest post I've ever read. 'keep ya head up sista' .. huh?! Only someone not from NYC would write that.

she is a very untalented person (acting or 'singing').

death cab for cutie are a really good band.

it was doomed to failure.

It was the pressure of living two lives, being ben gibbard and will forte was too much strain.

Posted by caroline pokachick | November 2, 2011 9:55 AM

Ben Gibbard sweats more than any other artist I know. It looks like someone poured buckets of water on him after a show.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 10:06 AM

8:14 thinks he is superior, and then uses the word "gay" as a synonym for "stupid"....

Dude is probably staring sadly at a picture of the Brooklyn Bridge while sitting in his parents basement in Cleveland.

"The reason you all hate her is because she has been marketed directly to you. White, cute, nerdy, vintage clothing, off-beat taste, mediocre music. You hate her because she is you."

I want to laugh at that. Except, well, I hate her because I hate the dweebs that she's marketed to and if the people who can actually relate to her hate her too then I find myself wondering who the fuck does like her?

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 10:14 AM

What's not to like about her quirky acting talent? I don't understand why nobody up here likes her? She doesn't make you laugh in New Girl?

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 10:21 AM

Does this mean she gets to return her indie-cred card and BV will stop posting She & Him news from now on?

"Cotton: The Fabric of Our Lives" - I love the part where she goes to the vintage store, then the record store!? Wow, so cool.

She really does seem to hit the BV demographic perfectly. Just like Michael Cera.

The last She & Him record > any of the last 3 DCFC albums. If it is M(ontgomery) Ward she's moved onto now, he's a very lucky man.

You guys are harsh. I'd still do her.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 12:35 PM

I don't know about the dude being queer, or her being marketed to me, or what flavor hummus they used to smear on her cooter before the nasty, allz I know is that I would still do her as well.

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 12:45 PM

can i bang zooey now?

Posted by Anonymous | November 2, 2011 12:45 PM

She's a good looking woman, Ben Gibbard isn't a bad looking guy, though he is sometimes overweight, he looks pretty thin in the picture attached to this post.

Pretty weak that they only lasted 2 years, but they know more about what is better for them than I do.

"New Girl" is a pretty funny show IMO, I will continue to watch until it's canceled.

Don't listen to She and Him, have heard them, not my thing.

Love Death Cab, though haven't liked the more recent stuff (pretty much after Transatlantacism) though I have heard good songs from each of the more recent albums.

I wish them both luck in their future endeavors.

I am posting this from my bedroom in my parents' house in the Long Island suburbs.

The girl with large breasts in "Two Broke Girls", another show I enjoy, is Kat Dennings.

I've been told from LA friends that she defecates standing up. It's like a slight hunch or something. Supposedly better for digestion and a more thorough cleanse.

Zooey is just fake. No indie cred. I know because I'm cooler than you. I'm not kidding. I actually do get to decide. Now stop doing stuff I already did.

Posted by Scott | November 3, 2011 12:44 AM

"Indie cred" is possibly the gayest term ever. People who divide anything into categories other than good and bad on their own merits should be fucked to death by a feral OWS chimp.
