This Is Not Zedd

In their reporting on the silly feud—excuse me, silly “feud”—between mononymous DJs Diplo (too old for this) and Zedd (approaching too old for this), the Daily Mail used a photo of someone who is Diplo above a caption that read “Diplo,” and a photo of someone who is not Zedd above a caption that read “Zedd.” I am not one to talk, as the best I could do if pressed to provide a description of the DJ (whom I’ve never heard speak) would be “bearded and millennial-looking,” but this remains tremendously funny to me.

1. Zed what they call the letter “Z” in the U.K. which is weird. It’s “zee” not “zed” and that has nothing to do with these photos of various goons you have posted.

2. Too old for fucking what? Today I turn 35, and last weekend on a goddamn camping trip some lady said I was middle fucking aged. I looked in my closet this morning and put on a BLACK ROMPER and have been rocking it all over town eating ice cream, because there is no such thing as “too old.”

3. I am going to live to be 105, so technically only 1/3 of my life is over now.

Thanks for letting me share these thoughts.
