Brian Wilson + Zooey Deschanel <3

From Myspace's Artist on Artist series: Brian Wilson & Zooey Deschanel chat with each other for a spell:

I'm resisting the urge to go super-fanboy on this one, but it's pretty well-known that The Beach Boys are my favorite band of all-time (and That Lucky Old Sun is a damn good record, if we need more contemporary commentary). I also, as it happens, enjoy the record Volume One by She & Him quite a bit! Ergo, this interview is something that I, and those who feel similarly, would enjoy watching.
