Someone in this community brought to my attention that this community is falling apart. I'm really quite sorry. And truthfully, I agree, this community is falling apart. I've realized this for the longest time, but never did much about it since I kept busy with other things. And if anything Strokes/Albert related came up, it came on thestrokes and to me, it seemed redundant to re-post it here.
So I guess I just want everyone to know that I am re-working the layout and have been working on a background for these past few days.
But I do have a question...
Does anyone know any good Strokes fansites anymore? The ones I used to visit were all closed. And I really can't get any new pictures. So if anyone could give me any sites with good pictures on it, it would help me a lot.
One of my friends actually left this community last week because it's like unactive in ages. Come on people, relive Albert's community!!! He deserves it!

Sitting innocently in the balcony at the Kings of Leon show at the Roseland on Monday 8/8, when two mangy hipsters decide to scramble over the bar into VIPLand—stepping on my hand and nearly kicking me in the head in the process. Thank you David Cross and Albert Hammond Jr. Albert scratched his afro fanatically through the whole show (David not so much, what with the baldness), which made me itchy like when we had to watch lice filmstrips in 3rd grade...
