The Neighborhood - Afraid

What’s that, YouTube? A NSFW music video? Oh, I am so there! Before last week, I wasn’t too interested in The Neighborhood’s music, even though I did enjoy Sweater Weather, one of those songs that I’d consider a potential track on the OST for the inevitable Tumblr movie where David Karp—played by Jay Baruchel—is an elitist hipster jerkoff to everyone who ever cared about him. In fact, Afraid would make a good track on the soundtrack too. I mean, “When I wake up, I’m afraid somebody else might end up being me”? That’s the kind of existential tunage that would be awesome for this movie that I expect to be paid handsomely for because the plot I’ve come up with here is amazing and it’ll probably be better than that David Fincher mess from a few years back.

Just kidding, I love David Fincher’s movies. In fact, aside from The Newsroom, I like Aaron Sorkin's work too. 

Now I sound like the elitist hipster.
