I realized that Macs and Netscape are evil, so new direct links have been added to the review of the Vanderbilt Strokes show. Enjoy, if you haven’t already!
Christmas came early this year… someone bought stuff off my wishlist. Yay!
And I just like to congratulate Nick Valensi for being the first Stroke to make it into one of my dreams! You’ve ARRIVED! In the dream last night, I was talking to some girl named Nic, and when I called out her name, he kept responding, and I was like, “NOT YOU. I’M NOT TALKING TO YOU!” He was drugged out in my dream.
The Strokes have added an extra London date to their tour. God I want to see them a Brixton so bad.
Jenn is sending me weird links like this Strokes bracelet.
Ladies and Gentleman… the weirdest quote of the day come from The Independent in London, England: “Ben Knowles, editor of NME said: ‘Because of the size of the market in the US, it is more conducive to cutting-edge music [like the White Stripes and The Strokes]. Bands like Coldplay and Travis have been commercially successful here but they are hardly breaking new ground.'”
The Strokes, who?
Ah.. how a review of The Strokes should be… everyone knows that the REAL show is after the show.
Um… some of The Strokes were at the Circle and Square show last night at The Mercury Lounge. Kind of bizarre. Maybe someone saw that I had a Circle and Square pin next to my Strokes pin and gave them the heads up.
Dude- I heard Julian Casablancas is hocking little dolls on the Cartoon Network. I don’t even know what Gundam is!
On a sentimental note… How beautiful is this picture?
Ready for your consumption:
*Snort* I still find this funny. The Times sucking it up big time. Oh the irony of the mixup!:
The picture caption on Thursday with the Pop Life column, about bands that are bringing new energy to rock ‘n’ roll, referred incorrectly to a highly regarded recording by the White Stripes, which is in the forefront of the movement. It is “White Blood Cells,” not “Is This It,” and it is the group’s third album, not its first. “Is This It,” as the column noted, is the first album by the band Strokes.
Cast, “Desert Drought”… the singer sounds like Robbie Williams… and Saves the Day.. that Funeral song or whatever it is… are these kids out of high school yet? I saw the vid last night and I kept thinking of Ben Lee or something.
And I don’t know what this is… but it’s an odd design for a site basically about porn.
The Strokes, “When It Started” is on NME Radio right now. Excellent.
And no matter what anyone says, Starsailor is quite good. Even if “Lullaby” sorta sounds like “Happy Xmas” by John Lennon.
I keep forgetting… Travis loves NY… and NY loves Travis.
Coldplay just updated…. Wonder if they are going to do the cover of “Here Comes The Sun” in New York next week…
THE COLDPLAY COUNTDOWN:… 3 MORE DAYS UNTIL CHRIS, GUY, WILL AND JONNY.
