Shins' Crandall, Girlfriend Arrested for Domestic Assault

What’s funny about this story (not that bruises in hotel rooms are ever funny “ha ha”), is that where I’m originally from (albuquerque, nm) we have very few celebrities to boast as our own. Translation: The Shins and Elyse from ANTM, as indie-significant as they are, are actually kind of big deals over there (as are Beirut, Freddie Prinze Jr., and olympic gymnast Trent Dimas…I know). So this story may have legs in the NY media, but in my little desert town it’s like Britney getting carried away on a stretcher.
