The Sound of Settling: Death Cab for Zooey

Maybe I'll feel better about this in the morning. Maybe it won't hurt so bad after a morning cigarette and breakfast beer. Actress and musician Zooey Deschanel is now engaged to Death Cab for Cutie's frontman. How is Ben Gibbard going to write sappy breakup albums if he's marrying the quintessential indie princess? How could Zooey betrothe a guy who sings "now we know all the words were true in the sappiest love songs" and genuinely inquires "can you tell me why you're so sad"? Is this sound of settling? Is this the sound of my heart breaking? Right now I feel like if Zooey had to pass me over she could have at least wound up with someone awesome like Glenn Danzig and not Le Petite Prince d'Ennui, but I'm gonna go write some morose love songs and figure this shit out.
