Dear Sleigh Bells,
I want to get my boyfriend something special for our anniversary but he seems to only be into beef jerky and video games. Any suggestions?
You could get him a beef jerky kit so he could make his own and lots of hot sauces to flavor them. [Sleigh Bells guitarist] Derek wants to make a Sleigh Bells hot sauce. Derek’s not big into video games, but that’s pretty much all he eats: hot sauce and beef jerky. Literally, we can just pour hot sauce into his mouth.
