weak week's and
wow - my blogging efforts have been weak lately. I have been on the road a lot with my job and I am not one of those "wired" people.
I caught a bit of the Juno's lastnight, only out of curiousity. Makes me feel glad that I do not work in the music side of TV anymore. I used to work at the NewMusic and Muchmusic and loved it, but when I left I started to really get into and enjoy music again. Not sure why I noticed a change but it happened.
CTV did a good job with the shooting of the show- it looked nice. I could have predicted some discontent amongst the artist there. Broken Social Scene mentioned something-I know these groups want to have some recognition, but people it is the Juno's. Like they say, it is what it is. The reason groups like BBS and The Arcade Fire are cool is because outfit's like the Juno's have no idea who the hell you are (lthough I think they both won one award) . Fuck them I say (sorry mom). I can honestly say that I do not know one Michael Buble song, but the Juno folks have and so has a lot of the population who listen to the radio. I did see Buble on our show in an interview and he did seem smart, and likeable, and that goes a long way.
I think the Juno's accomplish one thing- the term "juno award winner", looks good on a press release. As does Grammy award winner, American Music Award Winner, Billboard Music Award Winner, Brit Awards, Latin Grammy Awards, MTV Music Awards, MuchMusic Video Music Awards............................................
