Totally missed the memorial of Nate’s passing 2 years ago on March 15th. Truly one of the smoothest voices in the game. We got love for you Nathaniel Dwayne Hale (August 19, 1969 – March 15, 2011).  RIP.  This track off Music & Me (2001).

The Strokes – Hard to Explain

The Strokes were awesome.  Maybe they still are?  I dunno.  But their first album Is This It (2001) was great, and I saw them live at the Schnitz in downtown Portland on their first nationwide tour.  Did I mention how cool I was back then?  Don’t worry about it.
