Musical Appreciation: The Strokes / SNL

No one, but no one, does filthy and bored like Julian Casablancas. Problem skin + a thickness + the most unwashed hair I have ever seen somehow equals intensely grimy hotness. IT'S YOUR GIFT, JC.

Plus he said FUCK on teevee- YOU REBEL, YOU!

Doree somehow managed to get us 2 tix to the Strokes show at MSG in April. The scale of that venue combined with the fact that Is This It? came out 10 years ago is making my head spin.

This song is really taking care of Monday, feel me?

fuck 10 yrs. dios mio!

Couldn't be summed up better! You get the impression that his fingernails are kind of long and have strange black gunk under them but you still want to hit it.

GOD I WANNA BONE HIS FACE 4EVA. But Nick still looks like he smells like shit. I gave him a hug once and checked the bottom of my shoe. If you've ever seen the $2 bill show MTV did with them you can see a v young AL wearing a bob, glasses and a yellow shirt...I've loved him since my Velma days!
