B-Boy Limping


Ezra Koenig and John Wray…

…discussing songwriting at a NYPL Young Lions event yesterday evening.

A few things:

1) Ezra’s obsessed with Jersey Shore,

2) John Wray is pretty, and

3) Doesn’t it seem like Vampire Weekend is everywhere these days? Not only because of the video with RZA, Gyllenhaal,and a Jonas brother and the SNL appearance, but because Ezra is running a blitz of a defensive campaign. Poor kid; he’s so hyper-aware of his image and our perception of it that he’s doing everything to save it. Which means talking about it, talking about it, and doing things like this designed to talk about it some more (also, you know, his love for Haruki Murakami).

I’m sort of sick of all the talk.

Which is why I’m pointing you to actual performance, the two songs they did on SNL this weekend.

Walk this way.

P.S. This:


(It’s Jorma from The Lonely Island, also an SNL writer. He does this a lot.)
