Sweet Static

Yes, another mp3 blog. Trying to share what I like with the world. The music here is for sampling only and are up for a limited time. It's simple really you see. If you like the music then go out and support the artists. Buy a cd/mp3/eight track, make a request on radio, see them live, tell others about it. This way this wonderful medium hopefully won't be stomped on.

Sweet Static is an mp3 blog that allows me to share the music I love and also to point out other cool things around the internet that catch my attention. It is also a place where I can talk about my radio show by the same name, now on Thursday nights from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm on CJAM 91.5 FM in Windsor, Ontario. Got something I should hear? Email me at sweetstatic @ gmail.com. All comments left here are emailed to my inbox, so you can get a hold of me that way also. You can also follow the show/me on twitter at sweetstaticcjam.

Broken Social Scene vs. Canadian Idol

Chart Magazine keeps the world up to date on the biggest war ever. Broken Social Scene origially dumped on Idol after a whole slew of ex-participants got Juno Award nominations. To read that you can head here.

Well doing publicity this week for the upcoming season the judges struck back, commenting on how flat the Scene's vocals were in their Juno performance and then the Simon Cowell wannabe Zach Werner said "Yeah, well, how many records have they sold, honestly? I don't know if they did or they didn't go gold, but I know that Rex Goudie sold 21,000 tickets in St. John's himself over the course of three concerts. I'll bet you that if the guy from Broken Social Scene took a nice shit in St. John's, he couldn't attract any flies to it."

Really the whole thing is kinda stupid. Do these kids deserve Juno noms? Not really. But at the same time why bother dumping on them.
