Ha! Not really, but this is a reimagined glimpse back to the Postal Service’s formative years. In honor of the 10th anniversary of their debut album, we have PS member Jimmy Tamborello auditioning members for the spot that would eventually be taken by Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard (all of that was just too twee for words). Up for the job? Weird Al, Aimee Mann, Moby, Duff McKagan, Paige Hamilton from Helmet, Nate from Sunny Day Real Estate, Blink-182′s Tom Delonge and a slew of others.

On Saturday, Zooey Deschanel married Death Cab for Cutie singer Ben Gibbard in what will be remembered as the indiest of unions ever. The top-secret wedding took place in Seattle and Gibbard’s band mate broke the news on Twitter when he said, “Wedding day! So excited.” Zooey’s already crossed over to music with her band She & Him and now Gibbard will be acting in John Krasinski’s “Brief Interviews with Hideous Men,” which comes out on Friday. Although every emo boy with a hard-on for Zooey is probably crying and rocking himself back and forth in his closet right now, we’re secretly super excited to see what kind of indie rock magic this couple makes together.
