Nine hundred and ninety-nine times out of a thousand I couldn't give a toss about 'celebrity' gossip. Who cares if some talentless former reality show contestant is going out with some other talentless former reality show contestant? What's the world coming to, in my day people had to actually be good at something to make a name for themselves blah blah etc. etc.*
Anyway, today is DIFFERENT, because today I learned that my Hollywood alter ego, disgraced former Generation X movie starlet Winona Ryder, has been photographed *holding hands* with Blake Sennett, aka the one out of can-do-no-wrong twee US indie band Rilo Kiley who isn't Jenny Lewis.
When he's not not being Jenny Lewis, Blake Sennett is (or was, I'm hazy on the details) in another twee US indie band called The Elected, who wrote one of my favouritest songs ever, and one which is on the list of twee indie tunes to be played at my funeral.
Here we go, you will all, without exception (actually probably not Betty) like this, it is a lovely little song about growing up, thinking you're getting old, and getting all nostalgic for all the old friends you've lost touch with. Clearly this was written in the days before Facebook, as it's now impossible to avoid all your old friends whether you feel nostalgic for them or not, but that's even better, because that makes it a bona fide part of social history:

Happy Leap Year Day, Winona and Blake and everybody!
