White Stripes

This is a pic of the White Stripes performing three days ago at a youth centre here in BC!?! How sureal is that? It has given me new-found appreciation for this band. Their recent icky thump effort is not my favorite and I'm still a little surprised Jack hasn't ditched Meg for solo stardom - but hearing that they continue to get their kicks out of playing to a handful of juiced up teenagers does my heart some good. And today they're playing in Iqaluit, Nunavut of all places:

And here's the Simpsons version.

And... Michael Gondry's unique style of repetitive images timed precisely to the musical beat can also be found in the Chemical Brothers' train video for Star Guitar.
