I used to have this fairly large Strokes logo window decal stuck to my college dorm room window, facing a busy New York City avenue. It was my way of telling the world, that a Strokes fan was dwelling behind the constantly closed blinds.
I actually have no recollection of where I got the decal — I must’ve swiped it from a record store or something.
However, I do remember one time I heard a Strokes songs coming up through the vents in my suite. I totally freaked out, running out into the hallway, putting my ear next to all the neighboring doors, then inspecting the floor above me, but I couldn’t locate the source. It was only a couple months later that I figured out that the tunes were coming from the very cool owner of the shop directly below my room.
Every day in March I’ll be posting something from my Strokes archive. Please tweet or FB like if you enjoy where this is going.
