But it's Matt and Kim's under the radar appeal that has afforded them Matt and Kim will be playing a handful of UK dates in April of next year. Real Couple: Matt & Kim: Movin' and Groovin' - THE COUPLE BEHIND THE EPONYMOUS INDIE Their story goes like this: Matt (Johnson) and Kim ( Schifino) met while they were students at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. They started dating. Energetic indie pop duo Matt and Kim were performing at Mexico's Vaiven Festival on March 25th Now the band has (reluctantly) canceled their remaining tour dates until she recovers. . 04/29 – Carlisle, PA @ Dickinson College .

The system allocates each state a certain number of votes, based on the number of seats each state has in Congress. California, for example, has 53 seats in the lower house, plus the two senators which are allocated to each state, meaning it gets 55 votes in the electoral college.
See how the Australian election would play out under US rules — it might help you understand the system that will delivered president-elect Trump. The only exception is Washington DC, which has no congressional representation but is given three votes.
The winner of the popular vote in each state is awarded all of the state's electoral college votes, with the exception of Maine and Nebraska, which award two of their votes to the popular vote winner, and the rest to the winners of their congressional districts. This means that it doesn't matter if Mrs Clinton won by almost 2. Mr Trump has won smaller vote margins in the states, but he has won states rich in electoral college votes, such as Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio, which helped him reach the magic number of So how close was it really?
Assuming New Hampshire is counted for Mrs Clinton, she would need at least another 36 electoral college votes to claim the presidency. A combination of Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin would have put Mrs Clinton in the White House, and it turns out the combined margin in those states was justvotes.
Here's how that figure comes about. Matt knows what it is.
We already named it. It's gonna be "Shorty.
Did you have a hard time finding a place you both liked? We did search for about a year, but we agreed on everything we wanted for the most part.
Kim and I bizarrely agree on a lot of stuff, like way more than two people who spend 24 hours a day together should. Somehow we don't want to kill each other; that's the amazing thing.
We're kind of the same person. We shared a cell phone for like six years.
How did you call each other? We never had to—we're always together! What was on your list when you were house hunting? We wanted at least three bedrooms because we both do a lot of work at home. Surprisingly, for a band, 95 percent of the work has nothing to do with music. Kim's always answering emails. We're just really involved with everything from the artwork to our music videos, so…we both wanted our own office space.
We've been sharing one room as an office, but it makes it really easy for Kim to turn to me and be like, "Hey, what do you think of this? I think it might be a scientific fact that men cannot multitask.
So we needed our own workspace. Matt isn't very organized at all.
I organize everything in our place except his computer. I'm the kind of dude that when the desktop gets full, I just drag it all into one folder called "desktop. Did you know for sure that you wanted to stay in Brooklyn? We both grew up in the Northeast, so it's nice being a few hours away from where we both started out.
I don't know, it's a weird addiction. Did you tell her about how you proposed when we were looking for a place? You guys are engaged? No, not proposed like marriage-proposed. After a year of looking, we were hanging out in LA and went over to my friend's place, which is a great house in Silver Lake. So I peeked at some real estate—it's so much more affordable than it is here.
I was like, "Kim, we should move to LA. And I said, "Hell no, thank you! You weren't serious, were you Matt? I was kind of serious. I think it was a desperate feeling. Yeah, not to get all serious but We don't see our families or friends a whole lot.

We hadn't found a place, we were stuck living in the place we're in now and things just seemed to be getting worse than they'd been in the past six years….
But luckily, we've had a good year. Is it ready to move into, or are you going to do any major work first? We're moving the kitchen from the downstairs to the upstairs, so that's a big job. It's a fully gut-renovated building, so it's a good slate to start with. The dream is not to have a practice space anymore and just be able to have a room set up in our apartment. So we're talking about soundproofing…. Are you bringing any of the furniture you have or buying all new stuff?
We have some finds—like a couple of old '50s tables and some cool, old chairs—but we're definitely looking forward to getting new things. We'd always see things we wanted and not be able to get them because we cannot fit another thing into our [current] apartment. We live in less than square feet now, and the new place is around 2, or 3, We're at the point where we're thinking about what's going to go where, and every day I'm going to the store to buy another home magazine….
I'd definitely like to get rid of all our [low-end] furniture.

I think that's another grown-up step. Is there anything you've seen that you can't wait to get? There are a lot of great stores around [Williamsburg]. But I also know that in Vermont, the used furniture market is a lot less expensive. We want to take a road trip with a box truck and see what we can find. We want a giant kitchen table, one of those really big tables with a thick wooden top.
Yeah, my brother and I did our homework at our kitchen table every day.

We didn't go to our rooms. So the table's one thing. And we need a bed frame. We definitely need a really good couch. I want either two couches or a sectional because we're always competing and trying to fit when we lie down. And I always get the bad end of the deal. He just takes up the most amount of space. It's a very "old country" feel. The first time I went to Matt's parents' house, I loved it. It's a Vermont-style house that just has this nice homey feel with, like, clapboards on the bottom and… What do you call that?
You're not going to be able to explain this! I don't know, we like things that feel…like [exposed] beams and chipped paint… We like the old personality of places rather than super-new, super-clean. It has to have a feeling of history or whatnot…. We're going to coin that. I don't think we can coin that because I think it exists. Do you like to decorate with personal stuff or buy made art for the walls?
We're definitely buying a lot more art now. In art school, we'd trade pieces, so we started building our collection that way. Now we're buying stuff. I'm really into buying stuff at galleries. He doesn't like to go to museums because he can't buy the stuff.
Like, they show it to you but you can't buy it?
What are you most looking forward to about the new place? Well, it's just so gross in the building we live in now. Tell her what I saw in the hallway M: Kim looked through the peephole one time and thought she saw someone pissing in the hallway.
But no, it wasn't that. It was two people having sex right outside of our [apartment] door. We were just about to leave and head out on tour and There's this drug dealer who goes up to our roof.
And I like to play detective and write down every time I see him going up to the roof. I don't know what I'm going to do with this information, but I like to keep it just in case…. And so all of a sudden, I heard someone in the stairwell and I was like, "He's there again! And I was like, "Ohhhhh, they're having sex in the hallway!
As many things as you can catch from sex—especially from someone you might have sex with in a hallway—you can catch way worse things just from that hallway. I just saw his ass. It's a sight I cannot get out of my mind. A sight you can't unsee.
That is pretty gross…. You must be looking forward to having friends and family over to your nice, new place. Our families are very excited about this. Right now, we can't have anyone over because you can't move in the [small space]. So…parties at our new house! We go out every night on the road, so when we come home that's not what we want to do. The idea of being able to have people over and just hang out is really nice. Do you get to see your families a lot since they're up in New England?
We're super-close to our families. If we play in Boston, there are 20 of my family members on the guest list. They come out in full force.
