INTERESTING HAPPENINGS IN THE WORLD (BEYOND AMERICA'S FINANCIAL COLLAPSE)

I just read that Jack White is forming another group. In addition to the White Stripes and the Raconteurs, hard workin' Jack will soon release an album with The Dead Weather, a new band including Raconteurs' bassist Jack Lawrence, Queens of the Stone Age member (and erstwhile touring Raconteur) Dean Fertita, as well as Alison Mosshart of the Kills (pictured at right with Mr. White).

I eagerly await.

Your first post in a month about something other than the financial mess and you choose as your subject... Jack White.

Oh well, I guess it fits with the "fraud" theme. ;-)

Toast, at this point if I posted anything that you could even theoretically agree with, I wouldn't be doing my job!

But, just for you, tomorrow morning I post about Angus Young, Jim Calhoun, Chris Dodd, whoever hosts Dancing With The Stars, and Tim Geithner announcing additional support for banks in 50 states and 123 countries.

And I'll have Avril Lavigne playing in the background.

/I kid.

(Sort of.)

That sounds like a post I can believe in.

Sweet! I was just thinking the other day that Jack was due to put out another album. I figured it would be the Stripes (thpough Meg had that little issue of a nervous breakdown a couple years ago).

But I'm really looking forward to hearing the new band.

Well, don't stop believing. 'Cause belief's about all you're gonna have in terms of that post!

Me too. Whether The Stripes, The Racs, Loretta Lynn, what have you, all his stuff has a basic core sound, but the variation from that point is pretty extreme.

Basic core = Awesome

Word on the street could be that Jack White is throwing away his answering machine tapes, and I'd get in line.

Toast knows not what he mocks...Exhibit A: I uploaded him "Consolers of the Lonely" and he was gushing over it until he realized it was White.

Best. Hoodwink. Ever.

Mike you might want to start drawing up an FDIC post. That, or start drinking and sharpening your pitchfork.

That was pretty damned funny. And I'll admit the Raconteurs are surprisingly listenable.

But Jack White is still a fraud. ;-)

I fucking love it.

Uhhhh, that'd be because they're unsurprisingly great.

I thought that was Meg White sitting next to him until I clicked on the pic.

Yeah, Jack obviously has his type.
