Jack White, "the Coolest, Weirdest, Savviest Rock Star of Our Time"*
I so admire Jack White's commitment to his artistic vision.
Early in the White Stripes career he walked away from a record label because they didn't understand that "Red, white and black was a sacred part of what Meg and I were doing. For a label not to understand that meant there were a lot of other things they wouldn't understand."
For Jack White's new solo career, "he has a new color palette: blue. There were blue P.A. cabinets, a blue drum kit, blue guitars. He was having some new blue suits made for himself, and a new blue logo. He said the band, meanwhile, could wear whatever they wanted - as long as it was blue."
|"Third Man Records: the [Nashville] headquarters of Jack White's various musical enterprises, and the center of his carefully curated world. White is obsessive about color and meticulous in his attention to detail. It's a one-stop creativity shop as designed by an imaginative kindergartner - a cross between Warhol's Factory and the Batcave." |

"Zero-waste is just another term for a collective understanding, manifest in daily acts, that on a finite planet there is no "away" to throw things. And the closer you get to no waste at all, the deeper you wade into territories that are no longer about stuff, but about culture and consciousness and understanding your place in the cycle."
