Jack White: RUBBISH at Call of Duty. Well, probably: White clearly isn’t a fan of games full stop. “There’s no beauty in sitting for hours playing video games,” he writes in an opinion piece to promote Record Store Day 2013, posted earlier this week. There’s some good zingers in there too about what White sees as the downside of digital content and communication. “There’s no romance in a mouse click,” he writes. “Out there, people are still talking to each other face-to-face, exchanging ideas and turning each other on. Art houses are showing films, people are drinking coffee and telling tall tales, women and men are confusing each other and record stores are selling discs full of soul that you haven’t felt yet.  So why do we choose to hide in our caves and settle for replication?” He also praises vinyl, as you might expect: “We need to re-educate ourselves about human interaction and the difference between downloading a track on a computer and talking to other people in person and getting turned onto music that you can hold in your hands and share with others.”
