As far as the Sliding Doors game, if Berman had stayed only a poet, he probably would be at the fame level of Matthew Zapruder or Dean Young.

Thx @morrisp,

Both David & Rob were huge Cure/Echo fans, you never heard it in David's voice but I hear a lot of goth/crossover in Rob's. I have a pic of them looking pretty gothy somewhere, it was sent to me around the time of David's passing.

This IG account was their other roommate at the time, she has a bunch of old pics of Rob & David:

Re: the 2nd pic (with the cig) -- looks like Malkmus borrowed that shirt at one point (or vice-versa).

Good eye, the first pic was taken ~86, the Starlite Walker pix ~8 years later.

Weeeiiiird. I've never been able to get into Avalanches, but I guess it's cool to see them pay tribute to David.
