For Fellow Fans...

((I hope this plug is ok ♥))

If any of you guys are interested in joining an "off-LJ" White Stripes community. Please check out Candycaners: A White Stripes Forum. I'm one of the two admins there and we've only really got two active members so far. I've done most of what I can to make the board look eye-appeasing and will also be cleaning up to make room for some good topics.

And to make this post deal with the White Stripes (and not a forum for fans of theirs).. I shall include my detailed opinon I wrote on the White Stripes a few days ago.

    Sittin' On Top Of The World- Jack White {cold mountain ost}

Stripes on 100 percent.

(thanks for reminding me another_slender ).

it's a great interview. if your a hardcore stripes fan you wont learn anything new, but it's just great to see them setting there, on film... speaking. well, meg doesnt say much as usual... i think she's asleep through part of it. but still, you get the idea. footage of the new tour that i didnt know existed. i'd like to see if i can find that anywhere. anyway, i cant really say too much because it's only thirty minutes long and i wouldnt want to ruin the point of watching it for you, so try to catch it in sindication.

your friendly neighborhood moderator,



THe White Stripes are the featured artist on FUSE's show 100%. It's showing all this week, I think the time is 8:00pm..but I can't be sure. I haven't seen it yet, but from the commercials it looks to be a really interesting interview! Just letting you all know in case you didn't before!

(no subject)

Earlier I mentioned that there were some things I wrote down and they aligned up with what my director has been saying. These are not exact quotes, but rather the meaning I found in the quotes.

TWS: "It's better to build creativity, not number."
My Director: "I'd rather have a band of 10 who give 110% and have heart then a band of 50 with people not outputting."

TWS: "We shock some people with the sound coming out of two people."
My Director: "We're a 1A Band, but we can still play with the intensity that would make us sound like a 5A band."

TWS: "Trick the audience into listening to the 'story' rather than just the song."
My Director: "Instill an emotion in the piece, get the whole story across and not just a few sentences."

I'm sure there are quite a few more things that match up. If it worked for the White Stripes, why can't it work for a High School band who has a director that has just as much passion into music as Jack does ((in alike and different senses))?
