All day long a song was stuck in my head, but I couldn't quite remember what it was. I also couldn't begin to describe it to some one.

Just realized it was "Seven Nation Army" by the white stripes

this one is very similar:

Have you seen It Might Get Loud?

Jack White, The Edge (U2) and Jimmy Page discuss the guitar, discuss their guitars, build guitars and play music.

I watched it last week and liked it a lot more than I expected. We even watched all the special features.

It's best watched with big speakers.

Security has been instructed to allow bikes inside so long as there are no complaints ( of people doing wheelies in the hallways :) )

Nice! I'm not quite sure what is encouraged where I work.

Wow. More details about the expedition/adventure part?

The baby sized holes in the pavement I've experienced were in Denpasar, Bali. It made riding one's bicycle home along the pavement somewhat difficult.

We have a charity box at work and sometimes I think they put the chocolates in there that the companies haven't been able to sell elsewhere...occasionally, you'll get things that you don't see regularly in Oz like Reese's peanut butter cups. Other times, you get chocolate which is obviously old as it's gone white.

All kinds. :D

At a net cafe in Bondi and my time is about up, so I'll sign off for the moment.

There's a little cafe across from our offices.

They have dubbed me "Miss Coffee."

:coffee2:

I enjoyed that. I especially liked the Jimmy Page stories about recording in that old mansion. And The Edge showing how he uses various equipment to play accompaniment with the reverb coming from his own guitar was neat too.

Jack White stepped on a guitar to play it. He was the weak link of the three.

Are you high!!?
Srsly glatt, put down the pipe. Jack White oozes talent - guitar isn't even his thing and he KILLS it. While the edge strums chords and twists knobs. The edge didn't even PLAY anything when they were all together because there weren't enough effects machines to make it more than strumming a chord. Gah!


Not weak:

glatt 05-20-2010 11:16 AM

Can't see the video you posted while I'm here at work.

I'll admit Mr. White can play the guitar better than I can. I'll give him that. He has talent. But of the three, he was the weak one with the least appealing music.

jinx 05-20-2010 11:18 AM

OMG.
You're dead to me.

keep in mind that Jack is the only one of the three that has to divide his attention because he's also singing and playing keyboard.

scary talented, in my amateur musicians opinion.

jinx 05-20-2010 11:24 AM

Especially since he's actually a drummer.
