Indie Rockers for President

If I were running for President of the United States and The Strokes were my opponents, my attack ads would definitely paint them as elitists. I mean, come on, Upper West Side indie rockers with rich parents? The ads would write themselves.

Also, I think I’d add Sufjan Stevens to my ticket to get the evangelical vote. Another brilliant move from my campaign.

Some Things Last a Long Time

This song came up on my iPod during my morning commute. It was the perfect soundtrack to my MARTA ride. If you’re not familiar with Daniel Johnston, I highly recommend renting The Devil and Daniel Johnston. Such a great documentary.

This song has been covered by a few people over the years. You can check out some of them at Hype Machine.
