You might wanna check out this new video from everyone's favorite divorced sibling rock duo... The White Stripes. The clip was co-directed by Jack White and the Malloy Brothers, I didn't know who the bros were so I googled em and it said they've directed (the amazingly bad) Metallica's - St. Anger music video, the goofy Kid Rock - "Cold and Empty" music video, The Shins - New Slang music video and are currently working on a movie titled "8 Track" which was written by Zach Braff (who just so happens to be the reason The Shins have some cash in their pockets now).
The video is for their new single "Icky Thump" which is way better than ANY of that crap on that last turd record "Get Behind Me Satan". The only negative things I have to say about this new jam is the keyboard solo sounds like a shitty bagpipe (NO GOOD) and John Gillis is kinda rapping ala The Beastie Boys (NO GOOD AGAIN). But both of those things are growing on me a little with each listen. At least homeboy finally got wise and put down that goddamn marimba, picked up his axe and wrote some heavy riffs again. Good call Jack, I hated your shitty marimba and that dumb doorbell song man. Sorry, I'm just being honest. Don't do that to us again, k?

If you're looking for a music website that's updates alot and always has killer jams on it, bookmark http://www.aquariumdrunkard.com/. I hadn't been over there for a while so I played some catch up on that site today and really was blown away by this Terry Callier album cover. It was the reason I listened to the song, which is killer too in case you were wondering. If you know of cool sites I should be linking, have song/video recommendations or naked photos of yourself email them to me. Only females need apply to that last one, male with nude photos can send yours to email@example.com.
