I'm a sophomore in college with a massive Stripes obsession. I was a latecomer to the greatness that is Jack and Meg -- I bought all their albums this summer (and in a weird order: White Blood Cells, De Stijl, Get Behind Me Satan, Elephant, The White Stripes). Long story short, they are essentially all I have listened to since.
When I'm not in the lab or library, I'm at the coffeehouse (because caffeine and live music should be available in IV drip). I also love to play piano and hike on the Appalachian trail. If you must know about other music, I do listen to the greats like Hendrix, Dylan, Nirvana, and some other popular indie (oxymoron?) like Bright Eyes, Beck, Cake, The Killers, Modest Mouse, The Strokes, etc. But really, all I've cared about for a while is the Stripes!
I oscillate back and forth between PA and VA for school and home, and my goal is to see them live the next time they come to the area: Harrisburg, Philadelphia, DC, Baltimore, Richmond, Norfolk. So any heads up about that would be awesome.
I did quite well this Christmas for a girl who already owned the 5 best albums in the world -- I finally got the Cold Mountain soundtrack with Jack's wonderful bluegrass songs, and an iPod to play the White Stripes all day long...
Nice meeting you all!
