Ben Blackwell Q&A Christmas Edition

Post by higherlimits »

White Swirl is pleased to announce that Ben Blackwell has agreed to do another Question and Answer session with us. The Q&A "series" was originally just going to be a recurring thing with Ben but we decided instead to expand out to other people. Anyways, we've decided it was time to ask him some more questions. Due to the timing of the Q&A all christmas related questions are welcome! We're going to try to get this all done and posted up for Christmas.

As always questions will be anonymous and won't show up when you post them.

Deadline for questions is December 22nd!! That gives you 5 days to think up your best question!

The BEST question (as chosen by Ben) will be awarded a free Third Man Records Tri-color record! (Don't worry, not Transit, everyone here already has that one)
If you don't know who Ben Blackwell is then perhaps you should read the liner notes of some of the White Stripes releases, he is often thanked in them and even wrote the ones accompanying "Under Blackpool Lights".

Ben is the official historian of the White Stripes, the entire White Stripes Historical Department and the worlds foremost expert on White Stripes collectibles.

Ben has been drumming with The Dirtbombs since he was 17, is the founder of Cass Records and is currently "Pinball Wizard" at Third Man Records.

We will be taking question submissions throughout until May 1 so please post them here! We're making it an anonymous Q&A so no one will see your questions until they're answered! Please post as many as you can think of and we'll take the best ones, please make them good!

If you're asking something about a record label (TMR or CASS) please indicate which one... questions like "How do you decide what is pressed" could mean either label...

I'd like to sleep 100 days, my feeling has gone, flesh cold and numb.

nope just post here, all posts you see have been "approved" so everyone can see them. We've already got 20-30 posts

i'm to add:
it will be a tri-color of "I Cut Like a Buffalo" complete with a wide-assortment of other Third Man/White Stripes/Raconteurs goodies. Seriously, the prize pack will blow the winner's mind

also, check out the first Ben Blackwell Q&A for an idea of what questions Ben likes to answer. He handpicked the questions to answer out of all submitted.
