love is blindness

Jack White – Love Is Blindness (U2 cover) by qwertyqwerty099

This song is burnin’ up my stereo right now. Well… it’s smoking up my computer as it’s not available on iTunes and I can’t find a copy of Q Magazine anywhere. For Achtung Baby’s 20th anniversary (yes, twentieth- eeek!), Q hustled a cover version of the album with a mighty impressive lineup paying homage to U2. But, by far, the best track is Jack White’s cover of Love is Blindness. He kills it with that screeching guitar and the raunchy analog fuzz and his half-mad screams. Oh, Jack!

(Thank you to LT for the discovery!)

the veils are thinning…

This doc is fantastic! Went to a screening of Wake Up with a group of friends at my local indie bookstore. Afterward, there was a Q&A with Jonas Elrod (the subject and director.) He was charming and hilarious and completely down to earth. The doc recently had its TV premiere on OWN and has screened at fests like SXSW. You can watch online or buy the DVD. *Recommended for skeptics and believers alike.
