For as long as I’ve been a fan of The Dismemberment Plan (since ’05 during my college radio stint), I’ve lived with the sad reality that the D.C.-based band was defunct.

Ummm, no.” I am not really sure what spurred the idea. I think it had something to do with Angela moving to NYC and me wanting to spend some QT with her before she left. Or maybe I was just really bored. Being unemployed can make you feel kind of crazy and I was up for pretty much anything.
A: When Jackie told me she was going to come to Wormtown I was thrilled! Finally my twin was going to see me in all my glory… OK, so I was a little bit nervous, too.
Angela finished up work at Everyday Health and is relocating to New York City at the end of the month to start her new job- and to open up a satellite office for Buntology. In the interim, she’s using her time off to catch up on all the things that she’s been too busy to do since working:
Of course the big move will be chronicled in a yet-untitled, but captivating series for the site.
