  1. “The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want. The beauty of art and music is that it can last forever if people want it to. Thank you for sharing this experience. Your involvement will never be lost on us and we are truly grateful.â€

    That's a nice way of putting it.

    To be honest, this doen't come as a surprise. The White Stripes have been out of the spotlight since they stopped touring because of Meg's fear of flying. Jack remained in the spotlight with his various side projects and it was clear these project occupied ALL of his time.

    I'm still sad they decided to just end it after a few years of silence. It would have been great if they made one last album, I'm sure they still have it in them to produce another gem.

    Jack is a traveller, I fear that the Raconteurs and the Dead Weather will, eventually make place for other bands involving Mr. White.

    One of my favourites: Blue Orchid

  2. Canadian radio listeners may hear Dire Straits' controversial "Money For Nothing" blasting across the airways once again if the nation's broadcast regulator overturns the recent decision to ban the English rockers' classic hit.

    According to the CRTC, they have received more than 250 letters since the ban was announced on January 12, and today, in a letter sent to the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council today, urged the CBCS to reconsider blacklisting the 1985 Grammy-winning track.

    "Given the exceptional nature of this situation, the Commission has asked the CBSC to appoint a panel with a national composition to review the complaints," wrote CRTC Secretary General Robert Morin, who asked that the age and origin of "Money For Nothing," as well as its intended message, be considered in the evaluation.

  3. Maybe it's a bit too long to add in it's entire, but I love these lyrics from Demon Days (by Gorillaz)

    In These Demon Days It So Cold Inside

    So Hard For A Good Soul To Survive

    You Can't Even Trust The Air You Breathe, Cuz

    Mother Earth Wants Us All To Leave

    When Lies Become Reality

    You Numb Yourself with drugs and TV

    Pick Yourself Up Its A Brand New Day

    Don't Turn Yourself Round, Don't Burn Yourself

    Turn Yourself, Turn Yourself Around Into The Sun

  4. No weirder than any other country on the planet. Not quite sure what that was supposed to mean. All countries have their share of nutjobs who do ridiculous and dangerous things for attention.

    Totally not cool, Viaene.

    I've never seen such 'jump-to-wrong-conclusions' like I did yesterday. I don't mean here on SF, but on other websites and in the news.

    Sure, every nation has his crazy persons, that's true. But no country has that many guns and citizens killed by guns as yours.

    I'm sorry if I offended any of you, but through all the mixed information that came to Europe yesterday, that was the only thing I could say about it.

  5. Maybe http://soundjax.com/ can help you? I always use this sound-search engine if I need some sound.

    The problem you have with looping sounds can probably be fixed by some kind of sound editor like Soundforge, or perhaps even with Atmosphere itself?

    If you're willing to spend money: http://www.soundsnap.com/ has high quality sound libraries.

    Or you could just go searching in the real life library for greenpeace cd's or something ;)

    Good luck!
