A love letter from George

Finally, it arrived.  Although, I think it was just bulk mail he sent to every admirer.  Somehow, his light heartedness seems fake and forced.  Here is the love letter.

George drops such literary gems as “fer real”, “doper” and signing off with “Piece”.  He really knows the way to my heart.

Hi,
Hope you’re having a golden summer wherever you may be… Been working like mad on the launch of season seven of the tv show and the radio show. Lots of changes in the works… I think you’re going to dig what the team is coming up with. Including changing the name of the TV show. I’m thinking of calling it ‘The Jeffersons’ but CBC isn’t really going for that.

Regardless, this page is being shut down soon (Fer real). Now, I know people hate to move, but this is an easy one, so if you are up it, I’ll be at a new fb page. Work, life, and horoscopes (kidding obv). And much doper (read: dumber profile pics as evidenced below)

Piece,
GSx.

PS… Don’t go see The last Airbender… That movie made me hate life.
Go see ‘Cyrus’ instead.

George Stroumboulopoulos

Hi, aside from wandering the streets in search of the best Grilled Cheese Sandwhich. This is where you can find me…. The Hour (We’re thinking about changing the name) Weeknights at 11:05 on CBC TV (TV/ONLINE) The Strombo Show. Sunday nights 8p-Midnight on CBC Radio 2 (RADIO/ONLINE)

Another gem George wrote on his page:

George Stroumboulopoulos Hi. Welcome to the new page… Please tell your friends and enemies – well, use your judgement, don’t tell your crazy friends. This is where I’ll be, like TRON locked in this profile. By the by, if you haven’t heard the new album by ‘The National’ you need to get on that (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yfySK7CLEEg). Merci/gracias… GSx

PS… I want to start a backgammon tournament and televise it like they do with poker.

– right George, so no one can watch it like with your show … whatever it’s called.

    Any bets on whether Jian will interview George about his acting experiences on “Q”? YUCK! (At least they didn’t have to put too much makeup on George to make him look like a zombie).

    If Richard was so obsessed with ratings, how did George keep HIS job?

    Shocked as shit that this website is still up.
    I see you’re still writing lame criticisms about people and things and concepts which you know nothing of.
    I am curious about who you guys are, and what, if anything, you’ve ever contributed to the world.
    In the meantime, you are assholes; I wish you ill.

      They`re replacing everyone on the show, but not the host. That`s how the CBC operates these days, everyone except for the people at the top are to blame for the Corp`s failures.

    Ha. Why am I here? Who gives a shit what George does. He is on TV, radio and online. He likes his job. He works hard. People like him, and want to know what he thinks. Do really think the losers (myself included) who post on this website will have as much success and fulfillment in the careers they’ve chosen…..I think not. So piss off and let the fat man ride his motorcycle.

      George chose radio, specializing in hard rock and in sports. How much success would you say he’s had?
      Are you one of those listening to his obscure, one-night-onle, SUNDAY NIGHT radio show?
      The work he does for the CBC makes no mention of bikes or riding. The only reason you know about that is because he wants you to know about that.

          If it read “Population 120 000” THEN it would have been referring to his viewership.

    Years of sentiment about George on here vindicated by the fact that no entertainment editor in the country cares about what’s happening with this show.

    Changing the name of the show is an act of desperation on the part of The CBC. Would they change the name of a successful show?

      Hey, the CBC could own the rights to the price is right and change the name. Why? Basically, cause they need something to do.

    I decided to post this because only members of George’s “fan” page on Facebook got this love letter … I figured it was safe to assume that none you received it ;)

    I was appalled by his spelling, is he trying to be cool ? Piece ? Fer real ? Does he know he’s turning 38 soon !

    If the show ends up being only 30 mins, I hope his salary is cut in half too.

    Wow. George’s grasp on the English language is breathtaking. I think the Canadian media should re-think its standards, or at the very least CBC should not be funded by the Canadian tax payer. Perhaps George and the rest of the idiots at the CBC should beg for change on the side of the street. I’m sure all the Hour fans could round up a buck, once of course it takes ten of them to figure out exactly how much that is.
