Hello!  This is my first post in the Little Room, although I post a tiny bit over on White Swirl.  I started listening to the White Stripes thanks to a glowing article in Time in 2001.  My love grew from there, but my true moment happened in the mid-2000s.  It was my first night on a cruise ship heading towards Columbia and my normal insomnia kicked in.  It was 1 or 2 am, my sail-away martinis had worn off, so I decided to go for a jog.  It was pitch black and you could not see except a few feet of ocean lit up by the boat.  No lights were in the distance.  There were a couple of men doing maintenance, but beyond that I was alone on the running deck and it was so peaceful, and I felt alone and small in a good way.  While I ran, I listened to White Blood Cells, Elephant and GBMS. It was as close to perfect as real life can get.  After that I was hooked.  I was able to bring my husband on board with It Might Get Loud.  He watched to fulfill his U2 fandom and found a new outlet instead.  

 

I promise my future posts won't be this flowery.  And I look chatting with y'all.

Don't sweat the floweriness, it's very cool to hear about experiences like that.  Welcome aboard, looking forward to more posts from you.

Hello! I have posted some on this forum but I have yet to post here. I have been listening to Jack for as long as I can remember. My dad first saw them on Conan when they were the musical guest for a full week. Does anybody else recall Jack's guitar solo on Conan's desk? Ever since I grew up with the White Stripes and I loved every minute of it!

I think the solo on Conan's desk was during Let's Build A Home, even though the week they played on Conan was during the release of Elephant.

 

And welcome to the forum.

Let's Build a Home/Goin' Back to Memphis.  It used to be on YouTube, but I couldn't find it when I searched just now.

It's on Dailymotion. Got taken down from YouTube due to copyright.

That's what I figured.  Definitely one of the best things ever.  Thanks, Astro3, for giving us an excuse to pull it up again :)
