My Playlist for the Month

i’ve been looking all over the internet for these songs. very few of them can still be found as records. i remember the first days after i declared myself the straight edge oath, these songs were the first to grasp my ear. well, not all is actually that old, some are new references or new songs from old bands. i’d really love to put this as .zip and upload it, but i know some really cruel people over the internet who will do whatever it takes to make me regret that. so i guess i’ll just put it here and hope it has good use for those who seek.

Love Interruption

By Jack White

I want love
To roll me over slowly 
stick a knife inside me, 
and twist it all around. 

I want love to 
grab my fingers gently 
slam them in a doorway 
put my face into the ground. 

I want love to 
murder my own mother 
and take her off to somewhere 
like hell or up above. 

I want love to 
change my friends to enemies, 
change my friends to enemies 
and show me how it’s all my fault. 

I wont let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me x 2
Yeah I wont let love disrupt, corrupt, or interrupt me anymore. 

I want love to 
walk right up and bite me 
grab a hold of me and fight me 
leave me dying on the ground. 

And I want love to 
split my mouth wide open and 
cover up my ears, 
and never let me hear a sound. 

I want love to, 
forget that you offended me 
or how you have defended me, 
when everybody tore me down. 

Yeah I want love to 
change my friends to enemies, 
change my friends to enemies 
and show me how it’s all my fault. 

Yeah I wont let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me 
I wont let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me 
I wont let love disrupt, corrupt, or interrupt me anymore.

Just for the record, this is indeed true… Fairly recently, I reached out to the guys to try and make amends and offered to reconcile for the sake of having peace back in our lives (plus I know how much it meant to alot of the fans.) I figured it was still possible to try and save us because they hadn’t made any announcements yet or begun any public activity with another drummer but sadly, they declined my offer (well, actually their lawyer did…they didn’t even tell me themselves.)

Sorry gang, I honestly gave it my all… So now the fans on my twitter and facebook can please stop asking me to go back to DT. I tried, and the door is now shut, the ball is now in their court, not mine.

PS – I’m not crying or looking for mercy by posting this. I am merely trying to set the record straight as that is always the most important thing about my relationship with you guys. no BS, no spins, nothing to hide and for better or for worse, I tell it like it is.

I’ve also recently seen some people accuse my online activity of “looking for attention or media coverage” or “looking for sympathy”, but it’s honestly none of the above. I merely value having an open and active communication with my fans, always have, always will. It is the cornerstone of everything I’ve done since day #1 with DT.

This was posted here FOR YOU GUYS to know about here on MY message board on MY website. If it ends up on Blabbermouth or some other website that chooses to sensationalize it, that is THEIR doing. I did not send it out or create a “press release”. I am merely responding on a thread on my own Forum.

Anyways, onward and upward.

A video tribute to Cobain by Jared Letto.

“I heard today was the day Kurt passed away 17 years ago. Can’t believe it’s been that long. So grateful for his contribution and inspiration. Not sure I’d be doing this if it weren’t for him. He gave us all permission to create no matter what our skill set and reminded me that dreams are possible. Thanks for that. This made me recall a short piece of film I shot when I heard they were making a film celebrating his life. I made it to explore the character and explore creative possibilities. I never sent it to the studio or to anyone but thought I’d share it now…”

I know it’s two days late. Well, it took me that long to recover from the shock.

yeah, I know it is two days late

The White Stripes would like to announce that today, February 2nd, 2011, 
their band has officially ended and will make no further new recordings or perform live. 

The reason is not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any 
health issues as both Meg and Jack are feeling fine and in good health. 

It is for a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve What is beautiful and special about 
the band and have it stay that way. 

Meg and Jack want to thank every one of their fans and admirers for the incredible 
support they have given throughout the 13 plus years of the White Stripes’ intense and 
incredible career. 

Third Man Records will continue to put out unreleased live and studio recordings from 
The White Stripes in their Vault Subscription record club, as well as through regular 
channels. 

Both Meg and Jack hope this decision isn’t met with sorrow by their fans but that it is 
seen as a positive move done out of respect for the art and music that the band has 
created. It is also done with the utmost respect to those fans who’ve shared in those 
creations, with their feelings considered greatly. 

With that in mind the band have this to say: 

“The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong 
to you now and you can do with it whatever you want. The beauty of art and music is 
that it can last forever if people want it to. Thank you for sharing this experience. Your 
involvement will never be lost on us and we are truly grateful.” 

Sincerely, 
Meg and Jack White 
The White Stripes

Alex Turner is a genius musician, and a really talented song writer, but now we’ve got this beef. But he shouldn’t have touched my guitar.
