I had a dream last night that I was reading Stereogum and you had a YouTube video up of Carl Newman waiting to use the bathroom at Emo’s in Austin. Then you wrote something below it like, “People, please stop sending us pointless videos. We’ve complained about this before,” and the “before” had a link to where you’d discussed it previously.

I don’t think this makes either of us look good.

OK, it just doesn’t make me look good.

Actually, Ben, I think this is more common than you think.

Everybody, share your confounding indie rocker dreams. I know my wife has one or two that involve Colin Meloy. (It was totally innocuous though; they adopted a kitten or something.)
