The Internet made sweet, sweet love to me today

WARNING: this will only be entertaining to all music writers (UGH), all white guys in college and most people who live between Bedford Ave and Ludlow Street. I don't typically impose my personal trash reads upon you guys, but this is a comedy emergency.

Stereotyping People By Their Favorite Indie Bands, Part 2
11:28 am Monday Jun 14, 2010 by Stelios Phili
We thought no one was left unscathed after Stereotyping People By Their Favorite Indie Bands: Part 1. Fortunately, we were very, very wrong. Last time, we called out Vampire Weekend fans for their ever-subtle Pete & Pete pickup lines, but this time we’ve taken the invective even farther. (Well, hello, Sleigh Bells fans!) Again, in collaboration with Jeff Luppino-Esposito and in tribute to Internet genius Lauren Letoand her “Stereotyping People By Their Favorite authors,” we rebel against the misguided notion that stereotyping isn’t an awesome idea.
