The comments over on the Stereogum post about the pending nuptials of Ben Gibbard (DCFC) and Zooey Deschanel (She & Him, Almost Famous, and, most importantly, Elf) have made me double over with silent laughter about ten times. Well played, Stereogum commenters. It’s worth a post just to note the guy wondering what their celebrity couple name will be (“Booey Gibbanel or Zen Deschbard? I like Zen Deschbard. Or maybe Booey Deschbard.”)
Inciting the most indignation is the fact that people didn’t know they were dating (I know, right?! I thought we were BFFs). I generally don’t care about romances of famous people, but I have to admit being pleased in my heart when I heard this announcement because I totally called it back in August when they both appeared at that awesome music supergroup event at the Democratic National Convention event in Denver:
Female intuition INTACT!
And then they went and covered the Everly Brothers together all sweet-like, and I was like, CLEARLY.
So yeah. Sorry, heartbroken guys.
