A case of Garden State Syndrome

Garden State Syndrome” is what they are going to call it, and it will happen like this: A big summer love movie will get the college market crying to their Live Journals, and the accompanying soundtrack — lush with nicely coiffed pseudo-indie tracks — will lure them online to get smacked with an RIAA lawsuit. (How many of you new Iron & Wine/Shins fans went out and bought the GS soundtrack? That’s what I thought.) Who knows what it’ll be this summer … but come next fall, a lucky group of perfectly-dirties will moan the next heartthrob hit, all due to some boring-ass onscreen love spiel. Get over it, folks: “Eternal Sunshine” was waaaaay better, and you can find all that music in the Guardian (‘cause we like it too.)
