yes and yes! Just another shining example of a great concept for a poster.

The White Stripes - Hand Springs

I took my girl to go bowling downtown at the red door
after an argument I started
cause I thought she didn't like me anymore
I can't help it sometimes I feel pitiful
and of course she's so young and beautiful

I bought us two glasses of coke
that's her favorite and I wanted to make up for earlier
but I dropped her glass and it broke
so I just gave my glass to her

she laughed and so did I in our lane
and then she went to a vending machine
to buy a candy cane
but right next to that was a boy I knew
with a spring in his hand
playing a country pinball machine
called 'stand by your man'
I saw him talk to her
but I stayed in my lane
and played my game steady
and was thinking of a day
when I'd be too old to throw a ball this heavy

but I guess I'm young now
so it's easier to knock 'em all down
then I looked and saw her say to him
'you're really hittin' that ball around'
and he's lookin' at her the way I did
when I first met her
I could see in his face
white flowers
and cups of coffee
and love letters

I was sorry to interrupt their game
but I went and did it anyway
I dropped my red bowling ball
through the glass of his machine
I said 'are you quick enough to hit this ball, mr. clean?'
I was scared to lose her
so I couldn't help being mean

and that ended both of our games
I said I was sorry
but my girl left with him just the same
I thought how much I hate when love makes me act this way
I was bent over a broken pinball machine
in a bowling alley and I threw it all away

If anyone is serious about trading for this poster I'd give any poster or posters in my collection for it.

you name it, i'll do it. pictures for proof.

this was my first white stripes show, but at the time i had no idea how much cool merch was at the table. i'm almost glad i didn't get it then, because i probably would have taped it to the wall in my dorm room or something and completely ruined it.

but still, i regret not getting one of these so bad. by far one of my favorite jones prints.

ps - yes, whatever you're thinking. i'd even do that.

I knew it as soon as I saw it. No one posted anything here, so I thought I would be the first.

Every big white stripes fan knows exactly what this poster is all about. Not exactly as cryptic as Rob's latest work. But kudos for documenting it. :wink:
