I can tell you with utmost certainty that Jack White and Little Jack were both just in Costa Rica and Nicaragua. Now I'm just wondering if this photo was shot there...

I believe this is a staged shot (blood bright, no clear wound, shirt perfectly white, wallpaper clean), and it looks to me like he's revealing something.

My guess is he is finally revealing the name of the object he's holding on the GBMS cover art, written in red paint on the wall behind him, in a TMR bathroom. Also, below the painted message there will be three official vinyl prints of GBMS. First three people there get one.

I don't think the yellow represents The Dead Weather, instead it represents Third Man Records. Maybe meaning the first White Stripes release from the new/official Thrid Man Records.

perhaps it could even be exactly what it looks like. Jack was in a yellow bathroom with a bandana and a motorcycle helmet and he cut himself, and then decided to have someone take a picture of it. Stranger things have happened.

That is the profile picture on Alison's facebook. When you could click on it it said, "Costa Rica Jo Mccaughey". You can't click on it anymore. I assume the whole band was doing the helmet and bandanna thing while riding motorcycles or ATVs.

Well it being the intro to all the other sites too makes me think it's not Dead Weather. It could be, yes. It could be Stripes. It could be just about anything. Interesting and exciting that's for sure! The yellow represents TMR I think

Might be the Black Belles or something, has anyone checked their site today?

Jack cut himself while doing some plumbing repair after Brian (Kingsnake) made visit to TMR?

No, it's not the TMR bathroom, at least not the ones I've seen and I don't think they have more than one set of bathrooms.

I think this was taken in Costa Rica hence the Latin American style tiling. See the post I made about Alison's profile pic.

Well I was thinking that Jack might have set that pic up once they got back since they were dressing like that over there, he might have used that as inspiration in doing that photo, still think that might be the case. Though for the life of me I can't think of what the hell this is a reference to. I get the color schemes, but I'm not seeing the whole picture at this point, Jack is strange sometimes.

I wouldn't get too giddy over WS-related-ness. It's on the Rac site, too...
