Today is Love The White Stripes day

Funny that the song accompanying the video below could have been about the Jack and Meg union, well, considering we actually knew more about it than we do. Maybe Meg didn't know what love was, so Jack split? And, if not, she still follows him around like a puppy dog ... one that consistently does what she's told. Anyway, it's one of my favorite songs on the new album. Strong tune, great geetar and so stupidly easy to love.

One final thought on Meg: We were discussing Salem and witches and witch burning last night in class, so this is where this comes from, but ... how many times do you think Meg went as a witch on Halloween? How many times does she still? If she refused to dress up and nevertheless went out in public on Oct. 31st, she'd still beat out a barrage of witches in a costume contest without so much as trying. It's a good thing she didn't exist in Salem in 1692.

Last final thought? Go read Margaret Atwood's Half-Hanged Mary. It's amazing.

I would really like to see the White Stripes in concert.

You were my friend, you too.
I cured your baby, Mrs.,
and flushed yours out of you,
Non-wife, to save your life.

I had a visual of myself as one of those friends. Afraid, guilty and glad it's not me.

Erase all thoughts of Ryan, and prepare yourself for Jack and Meg. When I saw them on Saturday, they were even better than '05. The audience was even more milktoast than '05. No goth country kids in sight this time. :(

Yeah, this is one of my favorite songs on the new album too, right up there with Little Cream Soda.

I think of Meg as a good

Yes, go on. A good ...?

Sherpa said...

a "good goth," is what I meant to say I think.

Oh, I came back to say that "You Don't Know What Love Is" was on their set Saturday night...Besides, although Jack has had gotten into a few fights in his time...he's definitely a different type of performer than Ryan A.

Jack does have a certain knack for playing to the crowd. It's all in that coy smile of his, isn't it? Yeah, this one will be good.
