When I first saw Tegan & Sara, I thought to myself, "I think I have a crush on them." Then I thought, "And I think they might be lesbians." As it turned out the indie pop rockers do happen to be lesbians, but it matters not to my crush--they're cute no matter what their sexual preference may be.
Dee Dee Supreme tries to cheer me up sometimes by saying, "I totally think only one of them is a lezzy lez and the other is just pretending for the sake of the act." But a nerd crush isn't about reciprocal love! I have as much of a chance with Tegan or Sara as I do with Natalie Portman and Tina Fey. It's the dream that counts not my sad sack reality (although, my reality does include the ever awesome Dee Dee who tries to set me up with cute lesbians... how many nerds can say they have a girl like that).
But I digress. Tegan and Sara are not the typical nerd crush... they're indie, they're musicians, and it looks like they're not very good at math. However, what they lack in nerd they make up for in dork. Tegan & Sara Quin are twins. Dork. They mostly likely speak of twin language. Tegan has a ptosis in her left eye. Dork. A ptosis is also known as Dork eye or Popeye. Tegan & Sara are Canadian. Dork.
They also rock the mullet as well as the mic. I can see where straight men might not be attracted to them, their might just a little too much gym teacher intimidation going on. But I really do think they make the mullet look good. And, yes, I am hypnotized whenever Roadhouse is on the television, but mullets are hard to pull off and it takes a super cute dork to do it. I'm also a big fan of their sound (They rock the moog--the dorkiest of synthesizers), and sometimes I like to imagine that they're writing songs for my female lesbian doppelganger, but perhaps I've shared too much.
Your mulletless dork-eyed blogger,
J. Douglas Musashi
