I know, I squealed too! Because we all love She & Him, right? How could you not? It’s a band made up of the constantly adorable Zooey Deschanel and the always impressive M. Ward, and if that doesn’t do anything for you, then listen to that little track above. If you’re still unmoved, then check out the album’s tracklist:
01 “The Christmas Waltz”
02 “Christmas Day”
03 “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”
04 “I’ll Be Home For Christmas”
05 “Christmas Wish”
06 “Sleigh Ride”
07 “Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree”
08 “Silver Bells”
09 “Baby, It’s Cold Outside”
10 “Blue Christmas”
11 “Little Saint Nick”
12 “The Christmas Song”
Are you weeping with joy yet at this inevitably glorious album? If not, then check your pulse, because I don’t know what else could be wrong with you besides death.

Sometimes, or, well, a lot of times, celebrities will put something on their bodies (clothes, not semen), and my only reaction is “why?” There’s this confused, lost little lamb look that goes along with it, and if it’s really bad, a genuine pouty face, but that’s the gist. And that whole sequence is exactly what took place when I saw this picture of Zooey Deschanel at the Our Idiot Brother premiere.
I love Zooey Deschanel. Love, love, love her. I love her music, I think she’s insanely gorgeous, I simply adore her. But this dress? It’s not right. I’m sorry, but it’s not. I think Zooey’s the kind of pretty girl who should just stick with ultra simple clothing items, you know, like nice jeans or potato sacks, because all these frills and possibly homicidal neck ruffles just take away from that magical natural beauty, right?

Are y’all psyched for the apocalypse or what?! Heads are gonna motherfuckin’ roll, you guys. I’m so pumped. Last night, I had the perfect excuse to do my favorite things (make out and watch Zach Galifianakis movies, natch), and today I’m going to be completely worthless and offensive and terrible all day, and if anybody calls me out on it – suck it, I’m about to go to hell, I’ll do as I damn well please.
Sad facts though: the Rapture is supposed to start on May 21st at 6:00 PM, and some people say that it’s 6:00 PM in your specific timezone, so I guess Armageddon will just roll its way across the globe at a leisurely pace. The thing is, it’s already been 6:00 PM on May 21st somewhere in the world, and so far everybody seems cool. That particular theory could be wrong though, so I’m going to go ahead and wait for 6:00, east coast time, and give Jesus a good hour or so to show up, then I’m going to go to the drive-in or something.
Anyway, I know there are some people that want to hear their favorite celebrities’ outlook on the End Times, so I won’t deprive you of that any longer:
See, Pete Wentz, Zooey Deschanel, Roseanne, and Jonah Hill are all very solid people with really reliable opinions, so if you’re running around losing your damn mind over the end of the world, just follow one of these people’s advice and you should be just fine.

In mid-2008 I was pretty obsessed with Volume One by She & Him, the band made up of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward. So much so that I eventually became embarrassed by my enjoyment and had to retire the CD to the same box I keep the Cold War Kids in. Then today I saw that their new single has been released (with guest vocals by another great band, Tilly and the Wall) and I was pleased to find that everything I liked about the music on the first album was represented in this song with a slightly different spin. Zooey’s voice is pretty undeniably strong and interesting. She’s got a throwback sound and M. Ward’s a great folky fix even on his own. I am officially anticipating Volume Two.

500 Days of Summer actress Zooey Deschanel married Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard on Saturday night near Seattle. I’ve only become familiar with Zooey’s work recently, but I really like her. She was on Top Chef Masters a few weeks ago — God, that show sucked. Beyond having more food restrictions than I have (no gluten or soy and she’s vegan), she seems to be very likable and down to earth.
Anyway, I’m trying to imagine what their wedding reception meal was like. Water, arugula and strawberries?
Congrats to the happy couple! And please, make sure you reproduce — eyes like yours shouldn’t be wasted!

Many of us die-hard Zooey Deschanel fans have fallen in love with her on more than just the big screen — her debut album with her band, She & Him, was called Volume One and exceeded everyone’s expectations. It’s a really great album! If you haven’t heard it, I’d highly recommend checking it out.
“We’re working on it. I can’t say exactly when it will be finished. … Give me some time! I need a break!” she says. “I’ve been writing a lot, and we’ve been recording some, so, hopefully, I don’t know. I don’t want to put a number on it, but it’s going well and, I mean, it’s fun, as always.”
