Movies & Mixes Monday: The Strokes

Happy Cyber Monday everyone! Does anyone want to recommend a store for me to check out and save on? I'll be perusing the stores a bit today but I'm mainly looking for dresses so I'm not sure if I'll be able to find anything for very cheap.

On a different note, I've been recently obsessed with The Strokes again... which happens to me every couple of years. I remember being in love with them in 6th grade, and again in 8th grade, and of course now, in college. I think they're one of those bands that I will never not like. I hope I get to see them live someday, I'm pretty sure I'd be able to sing along to most of their songs!

Julian's lyrics are actually pretty deep even though they're so simply worded; I was surprised by that. And it doesn't hurt that he's quite the looker too... I don't know what it is, actually. There's something in those sleepy eyes and messy don't-care-hair that draws me to him. The video above links to my playlist of The Strokes (about 17 videos), so let it play in the background as you go through your other online activities and you won't regret it! My current favorites out of the ones above: "Taken for a Fool" and "Someday". Good stuff. So good that it's worth listening to on repeat, despite the fact that I normally hate listening to the same songs over and over.

Posting has been pretty sporadic these past few weeks thanks to school-- as it is, I stay up till 3 AM trying to finish other things! After this week it should die down a bit, and so hopefully I can finish off craft projects and have something to do other than mind-numbing work. Apologies!
