Battles’ Ty Braxton fakes a temp job

Posted August 15th, 2007 by Eric Greenwood · 2 Comments

In an old post from 2002 by fake news satirists at The Onion, Battles guitarist/vocalist Ty Braxton pretends to be a temp at a Boston law firm: 

“I have so much going on in my life right now,” Braxton said. “I’m helping a friend start up a little Cajun food stand, I’ve gotten way into this Russian poet Mayakovsky, I’ve been hanging out with this really cool girl I met when my band, Sophie Drillteam, did a show with hers. Honestly, I just don’t have the time or energy to put into some job.”

In spite of his happiness, Braxton said he makes sure always to project an air of dissatisfaction, in both facial expression and posture, while in the office.
