Oh I have gone and made a new White Stripes animation y’all…………….
Although I seriously recommend you go watch the widescreen HD version. Because, well otherwise I might well have not bothered doing it in HD eh. Hit the arrows and make it 720. And that’s all animated, the footage is really just bits of printed card.
In other, less exciting news, Third Man Records had another vinyl love fest. (Yes this has happened before.) Only this time it was in Austin Texas at SXSW, so they reissued every 7" from the back catalogue plus two Stripes LPs and a Raconteurs LP in Texas Sized Vinyl. That’s 8" and 13" records for the confused, ’Y’alls turntables ain’t big enough.’
And they did it at Franks, a quite excellent gourmet (?) hotdog and beer joint. In fact they even made a ltd. edition White Stripes hotdog. Really it was a massive nerd fest.
That be Jack White’s nephew Ben Blackwell, owner of Cass Records, drummer from The Dirtbombs. ^
All these shots are from my light leaky Yashica, so, well, there’s lots of light leak. 35mm 200 ISO Kodak. They also had a branding station, being in Texas, so I got them to brand my notebooks:
I came home with enough vinyl and stunning Rob Jones screenprints to seriously make my other half wonder if she’d made the right decision.
