LAST DAY TO ENTER CONTEST TO WIN WHITE STRIPES ITEMS
Last month on February 21st WhiteStripes.net and the Little Room turned 10! During these past ten years we watched the White Stripes evolve into one of the best rock 'n roll bands of all time and go out on top! So, with that said, I have decided to run a contest/donation drive. The contest contains some rare items and your donation will help out with regards to the hosting costs for the website as well as the Little Room messageboard. Here's the skinny. For just a $10 donation to WhiteStripes.net you will be entered in the running for not one, but TWO Rob Jones White Stripes concert posters. I have collected these over the years and have obtained duplicates from time to time. The first poster is from a show I attended (and was lucky enough to meet Jack and Meg!). June 23rd, 2003 in Cincinnati, Ohio. The second poster is from the November 24, 2003 show in Camden, NJ. Also included will be the Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground 7" single, released back in 2002. To make things more interesting for every $5 donated after the initial $10 you will receive another entry. So, for example, a $15 donation throws your name in the hat twice. Along with the posters and 7" vinyl single, the winner will receive some various items (stickers, pins, etc) from the load of Icky Thump promotional material I still have. The winner will be drawn random style and will receive an email from me shortly after the contest ends AT MIDNIGHT EST Friday, March 16th. The winner will also be announced in the news feed on WhiteStripes.net
WhiteStripes.net and the Little Room survives on YOUR help! Thank you very much to those who contribute!

FAN VIDEO FOR FELL IN LOVE WITH A GIRL

GRIFFIN + THIRD MAN RECORDS IPHONE 4/4S CASE REVIEW
I have always been a fan of Griffin cases for the iPod touch. So, I was surprised (pleasantly of course) to see that Griffin was teaming up with our friends over at Third Man Records to make a very unique case for the iPhone 4S. Old technology, meet new technology.
As you can see the case resembles the iPhone bumper cases that were all the rage when the iPhone 4 hit the market. This case comes in three pieces. The frame, which consists of two hard plastic pieces that wrap around the sides and ends of the iPhone, keeping it well protected. But, thatís hardly unique. The piece that makes this case stand out from all the rest is the backing. Incorporated into the case is a special cut, Third Man Records black vinyl record, pressed by United Record Pressing. You also have the option of ordering a pack of three interchangeable vinyl record inserts to mix and match with your frame of choice. The contents of the insert pack are:
1 White vinyl - cut from The White Stripes' Candy Cane Children
1 Black vinyl - cut from The Raconteurs' Steady As She Goes
1 Yellow vinyl - cut from The Dead Weather's Treat Me Like Your Mother
I have the black case with my black iPhone 4S. It looks slick and feels great in the hand. The iPhone fits tightly with no wiggle room once installed. All the ports and buttons are easily accessible. For you shutterbugs, the case does not affect the iPhoneís camera in any way. At the time of this review, I have had the case on my phone for two weeks and it has held up well, showing just a few minor scratches on the back. Thatís with putting it in and out of my pockets constantly throughout the day.
This case will be staying on until it falls off. It provides enough protection for me and it just looks good! Looks are important, right? You canít beat listening to your favorite digital tunes all wrapped up in vinyl. You can order the case as well as the interchangeable vinyl inserts from either Griffin or Third Man Records.
