Brad is right, I will be posting about Icky Thump soon, prolly like tomorrow.  But for now, check out this performance of "Icky Thump" on Conan last night. 

Radi-cal!! 

Yes, I already have tickets for the show at the Greek Theater September 21.  And yes, the obsession borders on Misery-like, I know, but I can assure you all that when I met Jack White I clearly held back from axing his legs off or any of that crap.  I was the very picture of composure, really.  Yup, that's me.

I'll try to refrain for a while once I post about the record....

That feeling's in the air:  it's almost time for a new White Stripes record!  This one's gonna be called Icky Thump and it comes out June 19.  Part of the excitement of a new White Stripes record is always seeing what their new style will be.  I would even go so far as to say they are Beatles-esque-- between each record they disappear for a bit and come back with a totally different look.  So here's what we have this time:

Woo hoo!  I gotta get me a pi....I mean, a copy of that magazine!

Despite not really being all that concerned with fashion, per se, myself, I have to give Jack White (we all know he is the mastermind of the group) credit for being such a fashion forward kind of guy.  He is always off on his own trip, whether its music or style or anything and I respect that....even if I dont always love the look!  Let's take a moment to ponder the many looks of the White Stripes, shall we?  For a band that only limits itself to dressing in three colors (red, black & white, in case you hadn't heard), they sure go crazy! 

Exhibit A, The Early Years:

This is when they were going for that childlike thing, circa 1998.

Exhibit B, The Uber Arty Years:
