…because they are always complaining about the 7 inches they don’t have.
I’ve forgotten who first told me that joke, but it’s one of my favorites.
Well lord knows why it’s taken Jack White until the end of the US tour to finally mention the 3-inch record player they’ve been selling at the shows. Yes that’s right, a record play that plays 3-inch records. I remember seeing it at the shows…I think it cost around 130 dollars at the merch table–which of course I didn’t have to spend on something I would almost never ever use. But it’s kinda cool…I guess. Just wonder why Jack’s mentioning it now. Have they gotten to the end of the tour and are now worried they’ve made too many of a big-ticket item and now he is trying to direct sales to the product? Sorry, I’ve been reading Freakenomics, I’m skeptical of everything right now…
UPDATE: The kids tell me that they just started selling them at Coney Island…hence why announcing the product now.
