This bitch goes out to that extremely annoying woman who does the Thursday "whats happening in Halifax" on Information Morning on CBC AND who also does art reports in the Coast. Anyone else find her annoying and conceded?
Every week she talks about the same bands, Windersleep, Joel Plasket, Jill Barber.... FUCKING YAWN!!!!!
YES we know that you like those bands, YES we know that you are on the board of AFCOOP, YES we know that you are zainy and want everyone to think you are edgy, and contemporary.
No need to flog a dead horse.
But what pisses me off more than her smarmy voice, her desperation to be a scenester (I bet you she lives in the North End and tells everyone she does) and her painfully aweful radio banter is the fact that she plugs the same SHIT every week. She always makes it obvious that she doesn't like "commercial' music, yet plugging Joel Plasket and Jill Barber every fucking week is no different than what c100 does with Britney Spears and all that garbage. What I would like to tell her, more like yell in her fucking face, is that there exists more music in Halifax AND in the world than folk-rock. Sure, she will talk about and play some obscure 'campy' band that she thinks is a novelty, but when she plays this 'novelty' music she rarely knows anything about it other than its not commercial and its zainy.
Seriously, The Coast and CBC, get someone who knows about music and Art who will represent you, not some fucking obnoxious scenester who knows ten "bands."
There is more to musical life than a singer/songwriter who can strum three chords.
|Enough with the Chord strummin'|
