Musician Jack White praises analog living, says ‘there’s no romance in a mouse click’

Jack White, of The White Stripes, The Raconteurs, and The Dead Weather fame, isn’t happy about all things digital. In his new role as Record Store Day Ambassador, White issued a statement expressing his sadness about kids these days, lamenting the death of meatspace for art and entertainment. “How can record shops (or any shop for that matter) compete with Netflix, TiVo, video games that take months to complete, cable, texting, the internet, etc. etc?,” White asks. “The internet is two-dimensional… let’s wake each other up.” White wants you to leave your cave.
