The CBC has all the integrity of BP

Despite several emails to several people at the CBC, not one of them was ever responded to, not even as having been received.

Yet lo and behold, it isn’t just a new picture of Jian Ghomeshi that’s different about the new, improved “Q” web site:

as compared to the line it replaces, still in use on Jian’s own web page for his fans:

The change comes about without any acknowledgement that the earlier statement, which had been up there for nearly a year, was in any way misleading.
The sentence was simply altered, as if on a whim, by some enterprising revisionist copy writer.
Now we can all pretend it never happened.

The CBC aligns itself with the integrity of British Petroleum – pay the fine, without admitting guilt.

            It’s SO true. He’s got this act going where he’ll compliment women of all races but you see all the dates he brings to the events he goes to are all white women. If they are some other race, they have to be very light skinned with blue or green eyes.

    Listen. OK? Raymi is sort of slick. She’s not stupid. She’s good at getting folks over to her blog. So there is that. Strictly speaking she is not required to be a model of any particular virtue. She is a piss tank and until recently a real good dope smoker. That may not be the best example for the other impressionable young idiots who frequent her blog…

    Un-impressionable old idiots, like me, go to her blog because I am bored and stupid and enjoy the shit storm that happens when Raymi gets her knickers in a twist. Not anything I’m proud of, but on the other hand it’s the basis for a massive amount of internet and television so-called “reality” programming.

    Finally, Raymi often threatens to do some kind of other writing, one day. There is a sense that she may have some skill or gift that has legs. Not so sure about that. She’s funny sometimes. Really funny sometimes. Really fucking dull much of the time. I wish her well and hope she does not become some kind of internet Janis Joplin.

    Raymi’s blog, in a sense, is her diary. Except that it’s online and public. She started writing and people started reading and following along. Are you telling me none of you have ever written about your own lives? People read it cos they are interested in her life, her writing, her. She’s been doing this since 2000, nearly everyday, so clearly, it’s working in her favor. There’s no reason to be hating her and ripping what you think you know about her life to shreds. Why don’t you people get over it, ever?

      the thing with blogging your diary, Raymi/ Susan, is that with blogging every cringeworthy detail of your life all over the interweb, you lose your right to privacy, not to mention that of your family and everyone else unfortunate enough to be involved with your hideous self. You’re a pretty nasty human, so why should we hold back on referencing things you’ve announced quite proudly?

      Also, the cries from your whipping boy, LUCAS, that our anonymity somehow undermines our opinions and observations of Raymi’s VERY public behavior is stupid. If a whistleblower calls bullshit on some piece of shit corporation, it doesn’t matter who the anonymous finger-pointer is. Get a grip!

      And insisting that we plaster the internets with personal detail about who we are and why we hate Raymi is ridiculous. Indeed, I know for a fact that she cyber stalked and sent hate emails to a female friend of mine. She has a history of mental health problems (many undiagnosed such as sociopathy; narcissism matched with crippling insecurity – all of which is a TOXIC mix) so I’m not surprised that people are fearful of being anonymous.

    A Globe and Mail photographer captures Raymi in her element.

    For you cave dwellers, 26-year-old Toronto “blogebrity” (who even says that?) Lauren White has been running her widely read personal blog since “before you even knew how to attach a photo in email” (says her Twitter). From the time she was seventeen, she’s been amassing a mega intense army of followers—and just as intense army of haters—by chronicling the minutiae of her everyday life like it was her job. For those who follow along, it’s easy to feel like her biographer with all the needless details you absorb (didja know she’s related to Jack Kerouac?) and all the scene-y events you notice her at (where you pretend not to recognize her then check her blog the next day to see if you were in any of her photos). For others, it’s impossible to pinpoint the blog’s appeal, aside from the voyeurism it provides with little to no censorship. But love or hate her, when was the last time you broke up with your boyfriend only to have it covered by everyone from Eye Weekly (Kate Carraway, natch) to the Globe and Mail (with mandatory quote from subculture profiteer Hal Niedzviecki)? That’s the bizarro situation Raymi has found herself in (culminating in the Globe writer writing about it again to fend off threats of flaming dog shit from her loyal kingdom). Rather than us add to the weird discourse about someone so “uninteresting” that everyone keeps fricking writing about her, we thought we’d let her respond.

    If my non-news isn’t news, why do major outlets continue adding to the coverage?

    I very much agree with Kate Carraway’s epithet regarding a blogger’s high-quotient of (seemingly) undue bragging, though I feel she misses the point slightly, negatively and hypocritically so. Some bloggers (I, for one) are trying to make it. There is more to it than the cascade of here is my new jacket, here is a hamburger I ate, here I am wasted in a bar, here is my blah blah blah photos. That’s called filler. The question to know the answer to, or demand rather, is why the fuck should I care about a (scoff) blogger at all? I don’t know, why are you writing about me? Writers want to be famous too, no? What part of the picture are you missing?

    We all know what blogging is. We all know for every website there is a Twitter account, a Facebook account. We know there are invisible fluorescent red desperation arrows floating around a blogger’s monitor, so in the small town what is Toronto we do not acknowledge that we read them. We barely make mention of them, how uncool would that be, and for the same token we never acknowledge when something good happens for the people we follow, or bad. I was never allowed to say, “Guess what, I’M HUUGE!” (whether fact or fiction), you just don’t do that in Canadiana, and you don’t dare ever whisper of any intent of becoming so either. Then, if and when it happens, you still shut up about it lest you jinx it. When shit is flung, you have to pretend you don’t care. You must return from whence you came, no big deal zone. It’s so easy in Toronto to just dismiss everything and everyone. People fiercely love or hate something in Toronto. I am one of those somethings.

    I have been largely ignored yet secretly followed, pursued, for years. I am constantly second-guessing everything I share (I am even afraid to be typing this post right now because I know the comment suicide Torontoist can bring), but I do it anyway because I believe that it is good and appreciated and unique. Why does this post even exist at all? Who am I? To me the real story here—the big picture—is that ten years ago no one knew what a fucking blog even was, or why someone would share so much online. And now, ten years later, a national newspaper is on my case for not sharing enough.

    Here’s the story in stunted form (interviewers love timelines, helps them catch up):

    I’m twenty-six. Started my blog when I was seventeen. Steadily, deliberately, controversially attempted to show trainwreck lifestyle with world. Exhibitionism inspired by nerve.com, VICE and Toronto’s pre-hipster/mod scene (though none of us were mods, Mod Club at Lava lounge was the place to pretend to not want to be every Wednesday). Secretly worked as online model (webcam, live chat) while blogging at 19, living in Little Italy. Nudity from secret job inspires more exhibitionism, upping ante on blog. Show tits on blog, blog explodes. First wave of blogging trend hits the rest of world about the same time (2002/3). I pre-date that (from 2000), therefore am considered a pioneer. Went to head, also did not care, steamrolled through the rest of youth doing crazy things and showing it all on the internet. Eventually would be pigeon-holed into tits-for-hits blog, nipples become a big deal and never not get mentioned since. Always defending with excuses of art and rambly prose. Basically, my blog stood out. It was good shit, and bad. Its readership steadily grows, is consistent. Known for caustic sometimes overly defensive tone and overall penchant for flame warring, posting scathing replies to frequent hate comments/emails which I make use of for material. Am touted with, “fuck me? fuck you,” attitude. Villainous demeanor takes on force of its own.

    Breakdown, leave city at age of twenty, return to ‘burbs for one year. Get caught up in more scandalous life pissing awayness. Eventually cut the shit, meet guy who is to be next boyfriend of five years. Some say falling in love kills a blog. Document, chart, show new life. Move back to city to condo. Have been with guy for three years at this point. Blog wins awards. Known around Toronto, but kind of have a geek-sheen cast plus a bit of a snub here and there from the “cool” kids. Blogs received little to no bearing in real world then, though online readership, fans, whatever, continue to prosper. Total headfuck being so “well-known” online, and silently around town. They know you but they don’t let you know they know you.

    Perks begin to roll in as bloggers begin to receive more recognition and clout as viable sources for product placement (tastemaking). Stature increases. Blog benefits. More events, more blog posts showcasing them. Two years go by spent entirely drunk (and hung). Tire of events, tire of the entire scene. Begin to feel shallow and empty. Become unhappy. Attempt to cover that up via frivolous means. Outfits, things, booze. Disconnect from everything. Relationship ends. Leave. Multiple reasons why. It was tough, it really was and I’m presently still a mess but ultimately feel it was the right choice. We both benefit(ed) from this relationship, as shitty it is to even mention that. I don’t know if we will be friends, but I do know that you have no idea what it feels like to have a massive pack of people watching all of it unfold, pushing for more dirt, pretending to give a shit, or giving one.

    There has been a lot of support and I am entirely grateful for it. This is another blogging perk when you connect with people, they connect back. They reveal to you the most personal of things, it’s awing.

    As for now I’m overwhelmed. And taking advantage of the media attention, but it makes me feel mental and sort of a different person dealing with someone else’s life.

    So why after all this should you be made to care? I dunno. All I did was start a blog, guy. Seems all the uninteresting and banal shit I upload to the intershits is interesting after all. Oh, and because I wanted you to care. I made you care. Thanks for stopping by.

    The only thing that Raymi could do that would actually surprise anyone:

    -volunteer somewhere outside of her local bars/restaurants

    ( and no, this doesnt mean galas with giftbags that she slams on her blog)

    -tell us what she learned today ( i dont mean about herself)

    -be a little philanthropic sometimes, instead of just always focusing on her! her ! her!

    but let’s face it, she will always be a self centered brat who can’t help herself, let alone anyone else.

    Posted July 18, 2010 at 11:01 am | # | Reply to this masterpiece

    – claims she found a “niche market” at 17 and attempted to capitalise on it. In truth, she found an outlet where she could stoke the fires of her insane narcissism and delusion that she is SPECIAL and has TALENT.

    – a horrible, hideous, and negative human. She is unbelievably insecure but also prone to delusions of grandeur. She fluxiates between the two and attempts to quell her insecurity but being a c*nt to fellow females (via her blog, of course); which is why it is endearing that Raymi takes to this forum as “anonymous” and Mackee or whateverthefuck to defend herself and call out others for being anonymous.

      “tap into a niche market” = translation : signed up for an account on blogger.com. She seems to forget that she’s not getting paid, which nullifies the “market” part of the equation. What she’s doing isn’t any more “tapping into a niche market” than the billions of other people that sign up for Blogger, MySpace, Facebook and Twitter accounts.

      “Delusions of grandeur” hits the nail on the head. She’s a sad by-product of the unreality of the internet. A bartender that can’t even afford a car and crashes at friends or parents pads and begs, borrows and steals her way through life, thinks that she’s accomplished something impressive……simply by having an internet connection.

    I agree with Raymi. The only people pathetic enough to frequent her blog are dirty old men and losers with no lives. Who else would find a boring, 27-year old, uneducated, bartender whose week consists of taking the Go Train to her parents to mooch off them, serving drinks 2 days a week and occasionally flashing her little boy titties interesting?

      This is why most people do not like you dear:
      because you are quick to judge and slooooower to learn.
      you can’t accept criticism for anything and instantly go into bitch mode
      You always have to last word in everything.
      everything you show everyone is what makes so many hate you.
      didn’t your mommy ever sit you down and teach you that you won’t always be the center of attention, that some of your friends will end up not liking you.
      You cant dance. it’s just a lot of toeing around the house and throwing your hair. no rhythm. stiff, no emotion.
      You can’t make everyone love you. and when you’re so nasty to everyone who has opinions you go after them hardcore.

        The thing that I don’t get about Raymi’s body is how she has all this body fat – especially in the waist and hips – but has such small tits. It just looks so gross.

        Raymi doesn’t have a very nice body so she tries to look more interesting by getting tattoos. Poor thing.

    Raymi is the definition of someone who can dish it out but can’t take it. Almost everything that she writes on her blog is snarky, nasty shit directed at oblivious targets. Total coward – always says shit behind someone’s back. Like her date last night. She never picks a fight with someone capable of fighting back because she’s a chickenshit. She thinks that she can criticize whoever she wants but when someone criticizes her she whines like a baby. Too bad, so sad, bitch.

    In 10 more years, Raymi will be her mother in 10 years. Another bottle blond man-user, “pay my bills and I give you sucky sucky”, exhibitionist nothing who never amounted to anything but a washed up whore. Neither of them can exist without some snatch-hungry man kissing buying them presents. The old lady posts lingerie pics on her own blog, so what kind of mama could she have been to tragic little webcam Raymi? The funniest thing about Raymi is her always insisting she’s young and hot.

        Makes sense. It’s been alleged that the true story of how Jian met Lights when she was 14 is that he came across her via internet chat/messaging. Which is much more believable that the fantasy concoction that he has talent scouts on the lookout at Wal-Marts across Canada or whatever the ridiculous ever-changing “Jian discovers Lights” back-story is now.

No, Jian’s friend gave him her tapes & he had to meet her. No, he dated her. No, he manages her. Both of them have a problem with authenticity & reality.

            It’s possible that as a result of whatever transpired between them over the internet back then, Lights or her missionary parents backed Jian into a corner where he had no choice but to become her “manager”. Can anyone explain his over the top hyperbole back in 2003 when she hadn’t yet written or recorded anything? : ” i’ve signed a new artist named VALERIE who is the best thing in rock/pop music since PETER FRAMPTON came alive.”

            http://wonderboy.ca/pipermail/jianlist_wonderboy.ca/2003/000002.html

            It was 5 years later (with the help of a co-writer) that she finally had enough material for a 6 song EP. And we’ve all heard her weak singing voice. Jian blowing smoke up everyones ass back in 2003 and making claims of “managing” her for so long is very suspicious in light of the fact that she isn’t the least bit prolific a writer and is an average singer at best and only started making music (needing lots of help to do it) in 2008.

            Posted July 17, 2010 at 10:21 am | #

            Not to mention the fact that Lights is more interested in playing video games and reading comics than producing music. She isn’t really interested in music at all….

            In 2001 Jian wasn’t working for the CBC and Moxy Fruvous had broken up and he would soon need a job/cash which led him to his job at the CBC. There’s really no actual evidence of him “managing” her until 2003 which is when he announced on wonderboy.ca that he signed her. So why do they always say 2001? Is that the year when they first met online?

    I don’t know Raymi in real life but I’ve read her blog, followed her tweets and we’ve exchanged convos here and there. She is down to earth, honest and way more interesting than all you haters and stalkers. Why do you know so much about her anyway? You must read her blog, or hell, possibly subscribe to her posts?! Get a life and leave her alone. She can talk about what she wants to talk about and sometimes it’s about a cute top or guy she saw, a new recipe she tried, something strange or even news tidbits. Why not focus on another Canadian blogger who’s really a TRY-HARD? His name is Zack Taylor (http://www.ZackTaylor.ca). A Perez Hilton wannabe who is as Hollywood as a Jewish Justin Timberlake lookalike from Thornhill can be. Ugh! Or how about some totally self-absorbed American bloggers like Rumi Neely (http://www.fashiontoast.com), Jane Aldridge (http://www.seaofshoes.com), Celine Ouaknine-Soto (http://www.mylifeinheels.com) or the totally rando and weird lesbian midget Tavi??????

          About Me

          Clever, quick-witted cross between zoey deschanel i am weird and beautiful? and my mother she will love that but yeah, my mother is incredibly nurturing as much as she drives me insane she’s solid and so am i, well i could be if i needed to be, hahah ugh exactly. Somewhat of a serial monogamist I WANT A FUCKING BOYFRIEND, first time being single in ages by choice, first time making a go at this dating site thing also i am not a loser. Was engaged last year, left fiance after being together five years. i have to stop telling people this but i felt it was an important thing to mention like i’m worthy enough to be considered marriage material looking for more out of life i’m bored lets do this, enjoy the simpler things as well as spur of the moment indulgences. work hard i am busy, play hard i party and look good while doing it no uglies. Into closeness smothering the shit out of you, and building a life with someone you will be pussy whipped. Experiences are so much more enriching when shared with a partner fact. Am good for long periods of time spent together but also understand the importance of space read: when you’re being a crabby piece of shit i will let you think that i am the problem not you so go read the paper in the park and get the fuck out of the house your passive aggression makes me want to puke. I like to ride my bike or amble across the city on foot on my days off listening to music in the sun BAKED. going out to nice restaurants that you will take me to, dancing, patios, hanging out in the park on blankets, reading, doesn’t matter ultimately it’s the company that matters. I love music too but am no music snob by any means, it doesn’t define me could care less we all know this by now. I’m a pretty creative cook, fearless i have fucked up eating issues. I love animals. debt-free, kid-free, ready to rock you can have kids cos i don’t? just turned twenty seven i will be saying this until the night before my 28th birthday. Oh i love movies and live music and live sports only if drinking is included I like cottaging please have access to one. I can be equal parts princess trophy girlfriend and dirtbag sometimes i don’t shower. i’m into pubs i can hang with the guys and fine dining you better be too. put me anywhere and i will make it fun i am a hyper spazz.

          this next part was the afterthought because i started reading guy’s profiles and saw how much everyone was fluffing up their steeze so i felt i should bring it a little more.

          essentially, i set out to make myself famous ten years ago and carved out a specific little niche, successfully. don’t really want to advertise it on here, trying to get by on looks and charm alone, for once. basically i’m a smart one, a lucky one. maybe i’ll tell you about it someday.

          and then there’s this little wacky part you fill out.

          First Date

          on our first date i’d suggest a handful of options or let you figure it all out you’re paying. somewhere atmospheric, cozy. once i get over nerves if i like you i’ll probably demand to squeeze your leg or something affectionate grope the shit out of you more-like so you better be into PDAs otherwise piss off. i’m a secret romantic though can be shy about it. i can know a person my entire life and still have moments of shy around them i am adorable. once we decide that there’s mutual chemistry between us the rest pretty much just writes itself. we can hang out on a dumpster doesn’t matter we’re in lust.

          i dance like something you’ve never experienced before. a little motown, old timey funk, with great rhythm i will school you. not to brag or anything but i’m that girl your friends hate you for getting to first guys love competition and the thought of their friend having something before them makes them sick. manipulation tactic.

          basically i feel like anyone on a dating site is a loser. me included. the worst part about going on dates is seeing hotter tail cruising on by when you’re in the middle of being stuck in an hour or so long meeting. i am way too polite. meredith was right, the guy for you is not on the internet. he’s in the park not talking to you because he’s a fucking idiot.”

    The thing is she doesn’t dish it. She’s not writing nasty comments, or tearing others’ lives to shreds for shits and giggles. She talks about her feelings and her life. Many people who read her can relate to the things that she openly discusses. Many people have thanked her over the years for being so candid; many have said that she helped them through a tough time. So you’re wrong and she’s the bigger person here.
    She doesn’t have to “hack it” when it comes to flaming; that’s like saying that we should all just accept the worst from each other. The internet does not have to be like this. But hey, if you need an outlet for your hatred, what better place is there than the comments section.

    Allan, don’t be shy. I know first hand you are a much “bigger” man then Jian will ever be. His penis is Nowhereian as big as yours.

    Come on, Allan, the BP/CBC comparison is wildly unfair. BP has at least tried to put a plug in its slick-spreading gush-hole.

      So too, it appears, did the CBC.
      But the CBC is still leaking pollution, and acting as if it’s no big deal.
      “He has appeared as a contributor or guest on programs ranging from CNN Today and The National, to Late Night with Conan O’Brien.”
      Jian was never, ever a “guest on Late Night with Conan O’Brien” in the way everyone understands that term to be used.
      And it’s a bit rich to say that if you happen to be a musician or dancer with Lady Ga Ga that this qualifies you to refer to yourself as a “contributor” to Saturday Night Live.
      Utter bullshit. FROM THE DESK OF THE CBC!

      “Q has garnered the largest audience of any cultural affairs program in Canada and has become the highest-rated show in its morning time slot in CBC history.”
      What ratings were the show getting when it was the exact same thing in the afternoon time slot?
      What other “cultural affairs program” is the CBC comparing this show with?

      CBC marketing, along with Jian and George as willing participants, has fallen short of being ethical in the way they’ve tried to sell these two people.
      If they’re so talented and competent then why would you have to resort to lying and exaggeration?

        CBC/Radio-Canada programs have “the largest audience in Canada” as a result of the fact that it’s programs are broadcast everywhere, coast to coast. It’s easy to brag when you’ve got a monopoly on broadcast reach and no competition whatsoever.

      Too bad that all those Lilith Fair dates were canceled. Jian was supposed to be traveling around the US with Blights right now, but instead he’s stuck in a T.O. pub with Raymi the barmaid/blogger. Well, at least he’s got the hastily planned 6 date Lights Acoustic Coffee House Tour starting up soon (paid for by his Radio Starmaker Fund). He’ll be able to act like a big shot jet-setter for a week or two this summer and all will be well again in Jianland (at least temporarily).

          Does she just go around Toronto looking for mirrors to photograph herself in? The one of her in the restroom with the two toilet stalls in the background is very classy. I take it that she has OCD and can’t resist the urge to photograph herself….even in a public restroom!? EEP!

            They’re far better when she takes them in her own bathroom.
            We get to see her muff.

          • Did Allan just say "muff"?

            I wish i could link directly to her muff, but I can’t recall what month or year it was.
            However, the origin of my use of the word “muff” has a story attached:
            The Georgia Straight underground newspaper had a small “personal ads” section at the back.
            One staff member placed an ad that said “Janis, I want to eat you”, and the following weekend Janis Joplin was sitting on his lap as he showed her the ad.
            Another citizen of Vancouver placed an ad that said simply “Muff Diver”.
            Accordingly, the B.C. Crown charged The Georgia Straight under the Criminal Code, as the term “muff diver” was deemed obscene.

    Why did they change “Mixing insight and opinion with his trademark unscripted wit” to “Mixing insight and opinion with unscripted wit”?

    Did the patent office reject Jian’s application for the trademark on “unscripted wit”?

      Wait till the Association of Dictionaries finds out he’s trying to get “performative deep-thinkerly stammering” added to the definitions of “wit.”

      Easy, Girl With The Poon Tattoo.
      No need to flatter me as if I were Huge Hefner.
      Let me re-iterate, that PoonGirl and I have never met in person.
      Our relationship is closer to being that of two players in Second Life.
      But I have seen some pictures of the beautiful young lady.
      And, hey … wait a sec. … that’s no tattoo!

    They also changed “manages the career of rising international star, LIGHTS”

    to “has managed the international career of Juno-winning electropop performer…”

    She’s no longer a “rising international star”; now she’s just a “performer” with an “international career” (performing in pubs in England and coffee houses in the U.S.).

    O (or is it Q?), how the mighty have fallen!

        Jian & Lights deserve each other. They will use anyone & anything to promote themselves, without credit or thanks. But karma comes around….
