Fashion File

Hello, my name is Jian Ghomeshi, previously known as Jean in my York University days.  I think Jian sounds more ethnic and fun !

My idol is Zac Efron, we have nothing in common except the most important thing, OUR HAIR ! 

 

Imagine if I was Jian Efron ?  That would be totally ethnic to the maximus and score me extra points.  Back to the important stuff though.  Style is VERY important to me, I was in a rock band you know.

Sometimes pink and ruffled does the job.

         But mesh is nice too ! 

Like most bad-asses a leather jacket usually does the trick. 

These days I’m clean-cut, after all I do work at the CantBeCool.  You didn’t hear that from me. 

I used to rock a 5 o’clock shadow at any time of the day. 

I  also used to experiment with longer hairstyles.  For a while, I thought I was so talented I possessed magical powers so I would dress like I belonged in the Alice in Wonderland cartoon.   Mad Hatter in da house !

 You may think, “Jian, how did you get to be so stylish” ?  The answer is, I like to wear what feels right.  After all, I know who I am by now, I am 32…okay…42…ish.

Jian Efron, what a ring to it that has.

Nowadays, I try to look as good and as young as possible except when I’m on the air ! When I’m on the air, it’s not about what I wear it’s about my talent.

What I want you to know most about me, Jean Efron, is that I am a nice guy.   Sometimes I faulter like everyone else and yes my style has had more reincarnations than Madonna’s style has.  But you know what ?  That is my right as a man.  I need approval, but I can’t let you know that.  So when you see me, please compliment me on my hair.

    I’m not a Jian fan but I wouldn’t be averse to him taking over as host of The Hour. It would be a welcome change from the hyperactive, fast talking, giggling at his own “attempts” at humour, sitting on the edge of his chair, vertically challenged “man in black”.

    Why are so many Q shows about Britain or stories from The Guardian? Doesn’t Canada (& not just Toronto) have enough Arts? Culture? Entertainment?

    No, I haven’t run out of things to bash George for ! This is just the tip of the iceberg for me, and you’ll want to tune in when (at my convience) I will post another rivetting expose about George.

    Jian is an art critic and George is a political renegade. Why don’t you go vote in my poll and let your voice be heard there.

    So now it’s Jian’s turn? Run out of George bashing material? Yes he comes off as obnoxious, Yes he plays the “ethnic” card rather too often. Yes he comes off as smug by times… but have you listened to what else is out there in the privates?

    His producer needs to reign in his more annoying habits. The show can be saved!

      Just because the CBC hired Jian, it doesn’t mean they have to hire every failure in the music biz.

      I see that they still, still!, have the Billy-Bob interview at the bottom of
      http://www.cbc.ca/q/ page.

      There once was a list of the staffers at Q, but they seem to be hiding it now, except for the end-of-week credits.

      http://www.insidethecbc.com/q/

      The staff, as of January 2008, before many fled the show was interviewed
      http://www.acc-cca.ca/reg/viewabstract.php?id=780&cf=5 for “Case Study: Q, CBC Radio One and Emerging forms of ‘Canadianism'”
      by Joseph Turcotte, MA. Communication Studies, Wilfrid Laurier University
      Full text: Not available

      Sometimes the staff behind Jian’s disastrous career show up in the Q:Americans.Before.Canadians blog such as Peter Mitton [ http://www.cbc.ca/q/blog/2009/12/why_cant_christmas_music_be_co.html ]

      or Tori Allen [ http://www.cbc.ca/q/blog/2009/12/have_we_lost_emotional_honesty.html ]

      or Rachel Matlow [ http://www.cbc.ca/q/blog/2009/12/are_there_some_prejudices_that.html ]

      Jian often has to take what is given him. He has no godly powers, that is obvious.

      This is the Toronto version of “Freestyle” looking to the college-style of (U.S.) National Public Radio.

        Shall we blame Noorani then?
        “The Show’s Executive Producer
        Arif Noorani was a producer with This Morning for the last two years. His other radio experience includes three years as a Producer for News & Current Affairs with CKLN Radio (Toronto). He has worked in film and video as a maker of short experimental films and as a co-director on a feature length documentary, that have screened at film festivals from Mexico to India, as well as across Canada. He has written for numerous magazines and worked as an online editor for a website. Outside of journalism, he has worked in the arts sector as a programmer with numerous multidisciplinary arts festivals and film festivals. ”

        and there is where he went wrong “….and a former member of This Magazines editorial board. “

        Proving once again that the CBC is just a big Toronto-lovefest & that the rest of the country doesn’t matter and shouldn’t bother trying to be included.

    At high school in Thornhill he was “John”.

    And even then people were rolling their eyes.

        from the York Pravda of 19 Nov 2009 http://www.yorku.ca/yfile/archive/index.asp?Article=13684

        “Left: Jian Ghomeshi entertains the crowd at the Bryden Alumni Awards

        Emcee Jian Ghomeshi (BA 95) opened the show with personal anecdotes that had the audience laughing, but took a serious moment to share his thoughts on the value of a liberal arts degree.

        Being a renaissance person is a way to find success today, he said. Its what people are looking for well-rounded, interesting, interested humans. Thats what York brought to me.

        Surely you are reading http://www.jian.ca/eventsitem.php?Id=33 daily to see his ” eyes of an Arabian princess” as Rick Mercer joked in 2004 on potentials for the next GG.

    The Curious Case of Jian Ghomeshi.

    Jian Ghomeshi’s date of birth has that Benjamin Button disease! At one time it was 1964 :

    But now it’s 1967 in his (likely self written) Wikipedia entry :

    Yes, Jian goes to Queens Park every now and again and gets someone to whisper words of Farsi in his ear so he looks like he knows what he’s talking about.

    Perhaps there is a magical “Farsi Whisperer” he travels with.

    If Jian Efron got a nose job, he needs to get a refund from his doctor.

    Not that I think Jian is really of any use whatever, but there is one thing you ought to know that is a black ink fact.

    Jian (pronounced Zhee-Ahn) is Zhee-ahn because the guy is a Persian-Canadian or Iranian Canadian or whatever you’d like to call it. And Zhee-yawn has been helpful, supportive, loyal, etc. to that community and that’s not much to make fun of.

    Unless of course you’re a fucking ignoramus mall rat-cum blog commenter. Hypothetically speaking of course.

    No, don’t keep it up. Spike his car, poison his food. Hire away the dumb staffers.

    We don’t want to know that Jian exists on CBC, neither radio, nor TV.
