Are CBS censors slipping or was this a common case of mishearing? Last Sunday, cameras caught Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco exclaim, "This is f---ing awesome!" after leading his team to a Super Bowl victory. One week later, Jack White might have slipped another expletive by the censors. During a performance of "Love Interruption," White and bandmate Ruby Amanfu sang lines into the same microphone. You can judge for yourself in this video if White or Amanfu change the word "fight" to the other word.  In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter , CBS executive Martin Franks denied White or Amanfu used the four-letter word.  "We had 10 editors, and three people on site, and all are experienced, all with multiple Grammy, multiple Big Brother, multiple Tony experience, experience with doing these delays," he told The Hollywood Reporter . "They went through all of the rehearsals.

The Virgin Mobile FreeFest - the annual, all-day music festival that brought Jack White, Skrillex, Alabama Shakes and more to the area last October - will return to Columbia's Merriweather Post Pavilion this year, spokeswoman Audrey Fix Schaefer confirmed on Tuesday night. There are no other details, such as the lineup or date of the concert, to report as of now, Schaefer said. Last year, I.M.P. chairman and FreeFest producer Seth Hurwitz said he hoped FreeFest would take place at Merriweather again.

When I talked to Alex Rinkus, a 26-year-old from Washington, for the scene story in today's Sun , he made it a point to emphasize why FreeFest was special compared to other American music festivals: "I just respect that they're trying to put on a good concert. " Pretty simple sentiment, but it rang true. FreeFest garners headlines (some from this writer and paper) for its unique price ("Wait, really, no money at all?" wondered a few lucky thousand with quick-enough mouse-clicking skills)

Rumors circled the past two years that the quirky duo of Meg and Jack White, better known to the rock world as the White Stripes, was no more. Much had changed since the release of the minimalist band's last album, 2005's highly experimental Get Behind Me Satan. Jack, the Stripes' visionary, left his hometown of Detroit for Nashville, Tenn., where he settled into married life and had a daughter. He also formed a side project called the Raconteurs and released Broken Boy Soldiers, one of last year's best indie-rock albums.

It all started in the middle of a sweltering summer day last year when two musician friends hooked up to shoot the breeze and jam. One guy, Jack White of the White Stripes, happens to be one of the most visible and eccentric stars to emerge from the indie rock scene in years. The other, Brendan Benson, is an acclaimed power-pop rocker whose work has yet to garner much mainstream attention. Together that day, the two interlocked their '60s rock-inspired sound and came up with a memorable ditty called "Steady, As She Goes."

There's a lot riding on this album - for the White Stripes and for rock 'n' roll. As the centerpiece of a heralded new wave of bands, the Stripes have generated more respect and enthusiasm - among critics and other musicians, at least - than any other U.S. band since Nirvana and Nine Inch Nails more than a decade ago. Despite all the magazine covers and MTV exposure, however, neither the Stripes nor the many aligned bands, including the Strokes and...

Welcome to Mardi Gras week. Even on a Monday, Internet users have plenty to gawk at as New Orleans avoids allowing a celebration to get in the way of a shooting, the Pope resigns for the  first time since the Middle Ages, and Jack White brings down (maybe) the wrath of the FCC. Don't worry, though: A kind soul has drawn Calvin and Hobbes into real-life scenes, giving us an escape hatch into a fantasy world of talking tigers.

You'll never see a more tactile expression of the intimacy between artists and their instruments than in Davis Guggenheim's elating "It Might Get Loud." This documentary on the art of rock guitar from the point of view of three contrasting masters turns what could have been a disjointed, catch-as-catch-can pseudo-essay into a soaring lyrical flight. William Butler Yeats asked, "How can one tell the dancer from the dance?" Guggenheim lets us see the merger of musicians with their compositions and their tools, including not just their favorite guitars but also amplifiers, microphones and speakers.

THE NEXT TIME you buy term insurance, you might not sit down with a life insurance agent. The commissions are so puny they're rarely worth an agent's power of persuasion.A new distribution system is developing, with different players and new ways of marketing. Banks and stockbrokerage houses are selling by telephone, mail or Internet. Licensed agents still take your order, but they're voices at the end of a phone.Increasingly, agents who give personal service will be focusing on the well-to-do, who buy high-commission cash-value policies for investment, business and estate planning.

The black, red and white stage set accented with 11 chalk-white potted palm fronds may have been elaborate, but the music was unrelentingly straight forward. At Merriweather Post Pavilion on Tuesday night, the White Stripes, the powerful duo of Meg and Jack White, delivered a show crammed with musical thrills. Rock bands with three times the members and more spectacular backdrops seldom perform with such uncut, visceral energy. The show, which stretched for about 90 minutes, kicked off with a high-octane version of "Blue Orchid," the stellar first single from the Stripes' latest album, the brilliantly weird Get Behind Me Satan.
