NPR blogged that authors Sarah O'Brien and Lacey Soslow of the book Geeky Dreamboats got a few guys right (Michael Cera, Jason Schwartzman, Justin Long) in their celebration of the word's sexiest straight-A studs, but were off the charts by naming Kayne West and Jake Gyllenhaal as geeks.
To give this post a Reverb spin, here's my top 5 list of comely music men highlighted in the book:1. Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie from Flight of the Conchords
2. Jason Schwartzman of Phantom Planet
3. Andy Samberg of Saturday Night Live
5. Kayne West (even though I think he's wrongly associated)
This post gives me an excuse to squeal for a quick second about my love for the boys of Flight of the Conchords, (and post the following photo).
Final consensus: good book to drool over, if you pay money for that sort of thing-- but they certainly left out a few sexy goobers such as Conor Oberst, and Ben Gibbard. What on Earth were they thinking?
