I got one of these in my Love Interruption 7” single too. Wonder if they’re supposed to be rare or something.
The card that was with my Love Interruption 7”. I can’t scan the bottom portion of the peacock picture but it says “Lot 975: Partially Leucistic Peacock (Pavo critstatus). The back portion contains an email between Robert Jones and Jack White. I find it incredibly funny that Jack’s email is email@example.com

I can speak for a great number of people up here when I tell you that we’re just a little tired of being used as a heavy-bag workout for every third-rate radio gasbag, every shoeless Bible-banging preacher, and every pecker-wood politician from hell to breakfast just because we have good public schools, decent public parks, and places we all can walk for free in the woods or by the sea, and a semblance of a decent health-care system.–

Many of you have likely heard about the bombing at the Boston Marathon today. I’ve created this downloadable wallpaper to raise money to benefit the victims. All money raised will be evenly distributed between Boston Children’s Hospital and Red Cross of Boston. You can donate here.
Please spread the word, not only for this one, but for all charitable endeavors, including blood donation. The people of Boston need our help. Let’s give it to them.

the west wing meme: ∞ eight speeches [7/8]
“More than any time in recent history, America’s destiny is not of our own choosing. We did not seek nor did we provoke an assault on our freedom and our way of life. We did not expect nor did we invite a confrontation with evil. Yet the true measure of a people’s strength is how they rise to master that moment when it does arrive. 44 people were killed a couple of hours ago at Kennison State University. Three swimmers from the men’s team were killed and two others are in critical condition. When, after having heard the explosion from their practice facility, they ran into the fire to help get people out. Ran in to the fire. The streets of heaven are too crowded with angels tonight. They’re our students and our teachers and our parents and our friends. The streets of heaven are too crowded with angels, but every time we think we have measured our capacity to meet a challenge, we look up and are reminded that that capacity may well be limitless. This is a time for American heroes. We will do what is hard. We will achieve what is great. This is a time for American heroes and we reach for the stars. God bless their memory, God bless you and God bless the United States of America.”

You’re not a bigot or a homophobe or hateful if you don’t believe in what I want. You are if you try to prevent me from having my beliefs. If homosexuality or gay marriage is against your beliefs, don’t get gay married or be homosexual. But your beliefs do not get to dictate what other people do or what the current definition of equality is. It wasn’t so long ago that equality did not include people of color. It wasn’t so long ago that Jews were slaughtered for their beliefs. Let’s remember that while the Constitution doesn’t dictate what you believe, it does dictate equality for all people and it does dictate enhanced protections for minorities to prevent the tyranny of the majority (see Title 9 and Affirmative Action and Hate Crime laws).

Jack White on the Radio City Walk Off
Q: I don’t know if you want to talk about this or not, but I was at the Radio City show where you walked off. I loved the show, but people made a big deal about it. What was going through your head that night?
A: Oh, I just do what the crowd tells me to do. I always do that. I always have and always will. If I play an old folks’ home or a fire station, I shut up when the crowd tells me to shut up. I provoke when the crowd tells me to provoke. The crowd’s in complete control of me. So that’s, that’s what will happen at any given night you see me.– http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/q-a-jack-white-on-new-dead-weather-and-solo-tracks-radio-city-walkoff-20130226
