and guess what, he's a total aXXXXXe." I overheard that on the bus on the weekend (no I wasn't eavesdropping, she was talking really loudly on her cellphone).

I don't usually pay attention to pomp and ceremony like the Junos but I can't help notice all the disappointed comments I've been hearing. Kind of amusing. It was a total and complete flop. I'm glad I never paid for a ticket or even watched it on TV. The only happy people are those who won the awards (and what a pathetic line-up that was) and the bars and restaurants in downtown Halifax. Not a good day for Canadian culture. The one bright spot was Pamela Anderson getting more boos than cheers.

I have to say that I enjoyed the Junofest. I saw Sloan play live for the first time in a zillion years, and they were much tighter than I remember. Good stuff. Slowcoaster was, as usual, very entertaining at that venue, as well. The free concert in Grand Parade was also quite good.

The Flamenco band playing at Pogue Fado on Friday night was awesome, as well.

I do have some complaints, of course. IMHO, they should've left the stage up in Grand Parade all weekend, and had live music in the afternoons and early evenings. That's pretty much the standard with the Acadian Festivals, and the ECMAs have their indoor 3-day music marathons, so why not the Junos?

The bracelets were a silly idea. The person who attached mine told me to "leave it on all weekend, those are the rules!". I, of course, laughed at her suggestion. And whoever thought that Ginger's was large enough to accomodate the number of people who wanted to see Nathan Wiley and Ron Sexsmith should have their heads examined. I'm disappointed about missing those two.

I didn't watch the actual award ceremony. Was it any good?

Sidenote: There was a clear line of sight from my workplace to the red carpet. One chance to take out BM, and I didn't take it. Sorry all.

Second sidenote: I ran into (well, brushed by, really) Kalan Porter while walking by the Shoeshop on Saturday night. I thought he was a young girl at first, until one of my friends said "that's Kalan Porter!". My response, of course, was "who's whatnow?".

Okay, the Globe & Mail had that big picture of Pamela and her huge falsies, and I wondered if they tested silicone implants on animals before they became available for humans. (relevance: Anderson's a big PETA supporter.)

Then I thought about mice with gigantic tits and i had to pull my bike over and calm down for a second.

You should have pulled your bike over before starting to read the Globe anyway.

Tsk, tsk. You really should keep up on your celebrity "news". Pammie's bazooms are saline implants. She had the silicone ones removed years ago.

I'm confused. I thought she had them all removed and had renounced being bosomy altogether.

It just occurred to me that I'm kinda glad someone like Pam exists to try out all of these bodily implants, just so I don't have to.

Would that be four, or six on a mouse? Anyway, if you're an "ear" man, you're set.

ed'd to add:

Her recent scraps with KFC and her involvement with PETA strongly suggest the silicone brain isn't going to be a runaway success.

What a drift ... from Ben Mulrooney to Pammie Anderson's bazoomy bits to mutant mice. Only on Babble!

I missed most of the Junos, but was somewhat taken aback by how emaciated Kalan Porter looked - I haven't kept up with his career lately, but now he appears to be about 90 pounds soaking wet ...

Agreed, they sucked out loud. Too bad really, because I've seen them a couple of times live in small clubs and they're way more entertaining than that. Jacob's voice was shot, not that he's the world's best singer anyway ...

Kardinal Offishall on the Junos
quote:
"It's really atrocious what they do to hip-hop in this country and what they do for the artists," he said. "And it's one of those things, I just feel like the token hip-hop artist from Canada."

"For urban music in this country, I mean, not only was hip-hop not televised, but also reggae and R&B," said Offishall. "To me, it's sickening and then they have the nerve to bring in a hip-hop act [Black Eyed Peas] from outside the country. I just had enough."


What the hell is Coldplay and the Black Eyed Peas doing at a Canadian Music show? Why do we feel the need to legitimze ourselves this way? 2005 was a breakout year for Canadian Rock, yet the Junos saw fit to import Coldplay rather than try to get The Arcade Fire to play a set. Four Canadian Idols were there (none of whom won,) yet The Wolf Parade, Metric, The Constantines, and K-Os are all absent.

Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal music scenes are getting full-section treatments in the New York Times, and they give us Pamela Anderson and "Let's Get Retarded"? What a disgrace.

Well CTV broadcast the Junos in 11 countries so they wanted 'name acts to get people to tune in I guess.

Blame CTV it was their decision to bring in the foreign workers for bigger ratings and bigger profits for the shareholders.hehe.

Ordinarily, I hate those anthropomorphized pictures of kitty cats.

This one is an exception.


My youngest watched a bit of the red carpet stuff at the Junos. I guess the dork in the stupid looking jacket, with more forehead than a man ought to have was Ben Mulroney.

I doubt you could find anyone more annoying than this guy. It was unwatchable.

omigod- I've heard of that 'museum'!
It was cited in a cultural resource management course as a classic example of the worst in the biz . . .
