“But in the unlikely story that is America . . . “

Democratic National Committee Fall Meeting
Washington, DC | November 30, 2007

– Do you guys believe in, like: change, hope, repair, heal, you know: things?
– In the words of HOSTEL II’s Todd: “Fuck, no.”

  – What about three words formulas in general?
  – Well, you know, having been called names like Social. Fairy. Dust., we know a thing or two about that. It’s ok.

  – Does the term “Krisenstolz” ring a bell?
  – Well, “crisis,” to us, spells like “i-n-t-e-r-n”—and while they’re confused, deranged, and too young we choose them too young, beautiful, and willing. So while they keep messing things up from a professional perspective, they are, aesthetically speaking, great to look at. And in this sense: yes, we are proud of them.

  – What else?
  – We are suckers for Hoefler & Frere-Jones fonts.
