An Inconvenient Question

An Inconvenient Question

No one at the CBC reads The Tea Makers. Right? I asked a simple question – “where is the opinion piece that you say Jian Ghomeshi wrote for The Guardian?” And that Jian Ghomeshi himself says that he wrote for The Guardian. The answer to that question would reveal a lot about today’s CBC. Even […]

Generation B S

You can’t write your own Wikipedia page. It’s not allowed. Understandably. Its purpose is not to simply publish the endless droning of a braggart, who, as it turns out, never actually walked on the moon (I’m looking at you, Sting!). But the tech-savvy members of Generation B S, have found an easy and obvious way […]

Waiting For Jian To Answer A Simple Q-uestion

Waiting For Jian To Answer A Simple Q-uestion

It’s been three months since I first began asking Jian, his staff, and now the CBC to answer a simple question. What editorial/opinion piece written by Jian was published by The Guardian? It says very clearly on his Wikipedia page that … He is also a writer whose editorials and opinion pieces have been published […]

The CBC, Jian Ghomeshi, and Wikipedia’s ‘conflict of interest’

The CBC, Jian Ghomeshi, and Wikipedia's 'conflict of interest'

If you’re eager to learn more about the many accomplishments of Jian Ghomeshi and the high regard in which he holds himself, there are three presumably reliable places to go. There’s the CBC page of his biography. There’s Jian’s own home page. And there’s good old Wikipedia. And if you do go to each of […]

A tale of two twitterers

There are those who say Gomeshi and Strombolopoulos must have photos of numerous powerful CBC executives in bed with dead women or live boys (or comatose ladyboys) for them to still be on the air. I say pshaw, fiddlesticks, and horse hockey! Jian and George are simply far too busy living their fabulous lifestyles to […]

How it works

We all know and accept that celebrity interviews are almost entirely a charade, but it’s always fun to hear Charlie Brooker dissect it once again.

Things to Blame Jian for: (I also think Twitter saved his life).

Things to Blame Jian for: (I also think Twitter saved his life).

I’m in a bad mood, and Jian is annoying me tweeting about the olympics and being all annoying.  (all art by PoonGirl). Like who THE FUCK DOES HE THINK HE IS ! With this gem – To all those tweeting/texting me: Gordon Lightfoot is not dead. We’ve spoken to his manager & confirmed. This was a […]

Me & L. R.

In 1969, Lou Reed looked right at me He and I go way back. A little more than 40 years to be exact. We met at a drab hotel on Denman Street in Vancouver, overlooking English Bay. Lou and I sat on the floor, him eating from a box of Sunkist Raisins while  I held […]

You underestimate yourself, Jian

You underestimate yourself, Jian

Billy Bob Thornton underestimated me

A re-visit, and closer look, at the misunderstanding that captured the civilized world’s attention. In this brief version, Jian Ghomeshi adds additional commentary, to help put it all in context. Context, is everything. from his remarks at Ryerson University: “We were ready to do a half an hour interview about his, quite frankly, mediocre music, […]

The Utter Boredom and Bullshit of Jian Ghomeshi

The Utter Boredom and Bullshit of Jian Ghomeshi

The idea existed before he was born. The principle is at the core of most of the shows on both radio and television. Every aspiring journalist and broadcaster knows it instinctively, intuitively. Almost half of what we’re exposed to is the exact same routine. Interview someone famous and you’ll be famous. And it’s all that […]
