(Huffington Post)   Jack White leaves in the middle of his concert at Radio City Music Hall, leaving a mob of about 100 people demanding to know why he didn't finish and ordered pizza instead. Really, though, the true mystery is why he'd eat New York Style pizza   (huffingtonpost.com) divider line 71

Subby sounds like he's from Chicago.

New York Style Pizza is like chocolate -- the only people who refuse to eat it either have legitimate medical reasons for being unable to eat it (allergies, diabeetus, cannot eat solid foods, etc.) or are assholes of the highest order.

Hey, at least he wasn't eating Ohio Style pizza.

I haven't been back to NY in ten years. I miss the pizza, so, so much, but I hate NYC with a fiery passion.

Nothing about this story is shocking to me in the least... it seems exactly like the type of thing he would do.

I get that people have different music tastes, and certainly understand buying albums that seem original and unique. But all of Jack White's skills center around creating a global, word-of-mouth/social media-driven, self-marketing campaign, not around creating music. If you're going to spend at least $40 on a ticket, it should be on someone who puts their actual music ahead of everything else. It doesn't seem that hard to tell the difference.

I paid $10 to see him with the Raconteurs a few years back. Best $10 concert I've ever been to. If you don't think he's a skillful rock & roll machine, you don't know dick about rock & roll.

I don't know what the 'walking off stage for pizza' shenanigans are about, but the guy can farking jam and his reputation is 100% based on said jamming, not whatever the fark social media crap you're talking about.

That's OK Jack. I couldn't last more than 45 seconds during the Meg White Sex tape because the sound system was too good.

gingerjet: Nothing says "asshole" more than those who think their city is the center of the universe.


To be fair, s/he was just responding to someone who volleyed a "I hate NYC" shot.

While I have no clue what crawled up Jack White's ass and caused him to cut the show short, I will say I just really like pizza. Whether I can eat it while walking, or need to sit down and eat it with a fork, any sort of combination of cheese, sauce and other stuff is generally quite tasty.
 
2012-09-30 04:38:51 PM
The only place you can get "New York Style" pizza in NYC is at Sbarro. The rest of it is simply called "pizza."
 
2012-09-30 04:50:01 PM
Maybe he was jonesing for some Cleveland-style pizza?

I saw him in August and wish it would have been 45 minutes. I had hoped to see some of that Under Blackpool Lights magic. Ended up with the guy doing a masturbatory homage to his career.
 
2012-09-30 05:37:12 PM
If that picture is recent, maybe he should lay off the pizza for a while...

translation: It was the first time he has ever clearly heard himself in his monitors, and is sounded like shiat. So, naturally it's the sound guys fault.

I came in here to say this.

As some other Farker said in another thread, Chicago-style "pizza" isn't pizza at all, it's a bread bowl filled with spaghetti sauce.

Probably got all pissed when he realized that some of the amps in the place didn't use tubes. Can't you see how he dresses? Don't you know how he's too cool for technology?

Pizza!

I was born in Chicago and lived there unti I was in the 7th grade.

Never heard of deep dish pizza until I was in high school.

Still have never tried it (even though I go back every couple of years to visit family).

A perfect Chicago pizza has a thin, crispy ( not soggy like NYC pizza) crust.

With sausage, peppers, onions and mushrooms.
 
2012-09-30 07:29:53 PM
It's not "New York Style" - it's simply "pizza" - period.

Everything else is garbage.
 
2012-09-30 07:37:51 PM
New York-style pizza is pizza. That sloppy casserole bullshiat they serve in Chicago is not.

mscleo: A perfect Chicago pizza has a thin, crispy ( not soggy like NYC pizza) crust.


If the only NY pizza you've had was soggy, you haven't had good NY pizza. Also, I live in Chicago and you're right, the predominate style is "thin and crispy," as in thin and bland like a cheap cracker, and even the "good" versions are only marginally better than a "good" frozen pizza. ANd the cheese is on top of the toppings, so the toppings don't cook. And it's cut into squares, which is stupid. How the fark are you supposed to eat that without all the cheese and toppings sliding off with the first bite. Stupid.

Good NY style has a thin, chewy, yeasty crust closer to good bread than a shiatty cracker. I'd rather have my pizza on good bread than on a Saltine. And apparently most of the country seems to agree, as I've never had crappy crust like a "thin and crispy" anywhere else in the country.

In the end, your favorite pizza is what you grew up eating. Some of us are more fortunate than others to have lived in NY.

I think we can all agree that the best pizza is in New Haven, CT.

I think we can further agree that Jack White is an extremely talented guitarist, and that he is doing a fine job at bringing back old school Rock and Roll (with a new school twist).

No? We can't agree on that? Oh well, I guess we just can't be friends anymore. Consider yourself un-invited to my next birthday party.
