You don't have to assume the worst in me

The personal likes of a music loving, book reading, film watching obsessive geek who spends way too much time watching TV and getting emotionally attached to fictional characters.

When these two were just kids running around Manhattan…

Absolutely dying of laughter

Suffice it to say, he is out here doing what he’s doing because it makes him happy.

He kicks the ball my way. I kick it back. And then we all pile into two cars to go eat chili and talk about movies and vegetarianism and “The Piña Colada Song”—anything besides his own music or Casablancas himself.

At the end of the meal, I buy. By way of response, Casablancas leads the Voidz in a spirited and deeply embarrassing serenade of “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow.” (x)

Thanks Amanda (x)

Julian forgets the lyrics to ‘You Only Live Once' and asks Nick for help. x

The Strokes were SO FUCKING GOOD you guys.  ugH. UGH. The setlist seemed to be the same one from the Port Chester show, which was like, a perfect setlist. Great mix of old and new, all the hits pretty much.  I was up on the barrier on the side as you can see and had a pretty good view - this is a time I really felt my tall male privilege.  The crowd was pretty rowdy, like the medics seemed to be taking out 2 people at a time each song, like crowdsurfing them out. It was pretty nuts. There were a few points I almost had trouble breathing but it ended up being alright.  Just. DAMN.  Like you know your favorite band is your favorite band but then you see them (this was my first Strokes show) and you’re like oh of course THIS is why this band is so important to me and why I stood here for hours getting a mighty nice face sunburn.  No other band would I even think of doing that for. Every song just sounded so good.  Julian forgot to come in on You Only Live Once (yes, he yelled “YOLO”) and then started it, and I think he forgot some 12:51 lyrics but I couldn’t really tell.  I got chills during Automatic Stop and Razorblade and Hard to Explain. And hearing 12:51, the first Strokes song I ever heard and the one that got me into them was so so so so great, aahhh. Like I had to step out of myself for a moment and be like, wow this is IT WOW.  I’m screaming along with these songs that are like THE songs by THE band that was heavily heavily formative.  And seeing them with a lot my internet pals just made it so great too. and just. AAAHHH. I had so much adrenaline after it. I was screaming and jumping around. What a great day, what I great band.  I feel fulfilled. 

Aww sounds great, I’m not at all jealous (fuck me I’m jealous)



Crying over this show so much, damn it Strokes come to the UK please and play a proper non festival tour! 


So excited for a show I can’t even go to, this is what The Strokes do to me

Oh god its weird that they are playing a show like tomorrow, and next weekend and one in August. What is this magic?

I’m trying not to get too excited as The Strokes play with my emotions, but it is interesting that Cult Records is running the new mailing list. Clearly future new music will be happening at some point, probably 2015.

It is from the very funny Rage videos where Julian, Fab and Nick introduce their favourite videos.

That particular bit is from this part and there is a playlist of all the parts on YouTube

This is so fucking cool even if I can’t go just knowing the guys are back together playing live makes me ecstatic
