Dear Jack White,

If I am ever in Nashville I intend to stop by Third Man Records! I don’t get out much though, so don’t expect to meet me any time soon.

I recently heard an interview with you on NPR. Actually, I’ve heard several interviews with you on there. They seem to like you quite a bit.

I love your philosophy on music. I’ve never managed to get myself to convert to digital files only. I can’t get myself to get away from the idea of physically owning something. I also like the idea of lending good things to good friends. I can’t do that with a digital song!

Music is too often overproduced these days. Compare The Cure’s first three discs to their last three discs. The recent stuff is so sterilized as to be beyond listenable! The same goes for Bowie and Reznor! They just don’t know when to let go anymore.

I won’t call us kindred souls or anything dumb like that, but people often do not get my penchant for honest-to-god letters. “Why not just send an email?” I get asked all the time! People like that just don’t get people like us!

p.s. you should produce a David Bowie disc. I can’t think of anything cooler!
