Zooey Deschanel And Ben Gibbard Announce Split

    It looks like another alt-darling couple has hit the rocks: just weeks after art-rock OGs Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon (of Sonic Youth) announced their separation, She & Him ingénue/prototypical Manic Pixie Dream Girl Zooey Deschanel and Death Cab for Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard have done the same. The split comes after two years of marriage; the couple announced that their separation was “mutual and amicable”. This news is really going to damage the burgeoning Deschanel/Gibbard fan-fic market.
