Andy Samberg's the Lonely Island Tell All!

Andy Samberg's the Lonely Island Tell All! is an article on Pitchfork about the Lonely Island Boys. Supposedly,  "'Saturday Night Live's' Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone announce their debut album, reveal their deepest secrets. "

How can it not be awesome?

"In addition to INCREDIBAD and dick humor, we talked to Samberg, Schaffer, and Taccone about the music they love (including their favorite T-Pain songs), their roles on "SNL", amazing/bad/horrific album covers, and being forced by Justin Timberlake to watch 'N Sync videos on YouTube.

Pitchfork: Just for the sake of our transcriber, could you guys each take turns saying your names?

Schaffer: Yeah, hi, I'm Akiva. We've done this before, by the way, and it never works.

Pitchfork: [Laughs] Okay, cool.

Jorma Taccone: We all sound identical. Okay, so do it again.

Schaffer: I'm Akiva. This is my voice. This is the sound of me talking.

Taccone: Okay, he sounds bored.

Schaffer: Yeah, I'll try to keep this tone throughout.

Taccone: This is Jorma. I have kind of a deep, manly, sort of commanding voice.

Andy Samberg: And this is Andy. My voice is the kind of voice that somebody who is in the cast of "Saturday Night Live" would have.

Schaffer: It's a really famous-sounding voice.

Taccone: He's like a total dick.

Samberg: Like someone who's way more important than the other two.

Taccone: You'll put all of his quotes in bold. And then a parenthetical "(dick)" afterwards.

Schaffer: Yeah, write anything he says in a gold, sparkly font. Instead of quote signs put dollar signs.

Taccone: Sort of like a champion asshole.

Pitchfork: Done. So you guys are watching Kanye rehearse right now?

Schaffer: It's on the feed in the building, yeah."
