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
Behold the magnetic greatness of Baby Magneto
That is awesome.
2x Kindle keyboard (Wi-Fi) - shattered screen on first one, crushed other in a car door - cost to replace - first one free, second one $69.
Kindle Keyboard (3G) - broke while in a case in my coat - cost to replace - $69
iPod nano 6G, orange - dropped in the street and shattered screen - cost to replace - free due to kind Apple Genius
iPad LTE 3G 32GB - dropped onto kitchen tile while holding baby, split screen - cost to replace - $150 (AppleCare+ and replacement charge)
Now, mind you, this is the tech I’ve had a hand in breaking, not the tech that’s gone bad on me and was replaced under warranty.
This is my daughter, Charlotte. She’s five months old today. She has had a pre-existing condition since she had a stroke at five days old.
She and I would like to thank everyone for re-electing President Barack Obama and preserving the Affordable Care Act with its prohibition against denying healthcare for those with pre-existing conditions. The Affordable Care Act means that Charlotte will have healthcare through my wife and I until she is 26 years old.
More importantly, the Affordable Care Act means she’ll be able to choose to live anywhere in the United States without fearing that she’ll be unable to get health coverage.
We want to thank everyone once again for re-electing President Obama.
