    Ive been thinking about this. Why cant Matthew Good guest-host the Friday Current or Q or something?

    George should really consider alerting the cops to this sicko’s obsession. In recent weeks on this blog, he’s written a sex fantasy about the guy and admitted to peeking through The Hour offices’ windows. Do the right thing and stop enabling this guy, he’s not well.

      You appear to have as much grasp of the law and media as Tod Maffin does.

      George should really consider himself lucky he has a dedicated fan who actually dares to be critical and isnt a woman in her mid-20s who vainly pines for George.

      In four of these pictures I see people that engender a fair amount of pride in being Canadian.
      I find that what they have to say for themselves to be interesting, and I’m interested in whatever they think is interesting.
      Can’t say the same about George. He makes everything he encounters quickly become more and more uninteresting.

      Might need proof of citizenship with Barney, but I can certainly see him doing an edgy show, particularly with a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other.
      And of course, that purple mouth.

    Matthew Good would be great as a replacement for Strombo.
    Matt could end every show with a tune.
    Load Me Up, Time Bomb, etc

    Bottom left: Matthew Good. This is not as absurd as it might sound.

    Upper left: Raymi the Minx?

    Recognize few of the quadrapeds you picture.

    The large purple one in the middle is comforting like the Georgie Porgie after vacation.

    Irshad too-full-of-herself-I’m-at-“En-Why-U”-in-Nawh-Yahk Manji is obvious and overexposed and wants to be a leading Amurrican commentatori, see her music blog. She would not come back to small town Canada, but they are the only ones who pay her for free lance non-print crap.
    She even has to edit her own wiki page and have music on her readings to cover up her voice.

    Doug Aren’t-Me-a-pretty-artist-hasbeen-author Coupland couldn’t stand to do anything for more than a half-hour, that’s for the hired help of the studio.
