THE CITY AND THE PROVINCE SHOULD CUT FUNDS TO THE ECMA!!!!!
My blog site is number one on the list!!!
The world must know what's going on with the bureacratic ECMA!!!!
Here's a comment-
Are they getting archive video of you for the next time some billy-goat Irving stooge roughs you up and locks you in jail?
Or better yet, they'll shut up the only independent voice willing to be heard through simple character assassination - some vague accusations along with a few shots of you hanging around downtown and they'll be able to raise a mob of fluoride-numbed "concerned citizens" to harass and bully you out of the cause.
Don't let your guard down Charles - these people aren't used to being challenged in an honest manner.
The negative stories coming out (1) about the ECMAs from other non-corporate media sources are very much in line with your experience.
Denying Irving-crowned New Brunswick blogger of the year is a flagrant abuse of such an event's responsibility to provide access to representative media.
Incidentally - some of the fluoride zombies who attack you keep saying this is about free music for you. As evil as this is, in our consumerist pact into debt-based oblivion - is not the issue:
The media pass presumably allows media to take photos from close to the stage and perhaps interview musicians. Although I can't understand why a true maritimer wouldn't want to peruse Charles' photos and hear his take on things. That is - unless he or she is a total dick.
It seems more of the Charles deniers are total dicks - keeping more than half the tickets away from the public is a dick move. These producers and record executives should go home and listen to the albums - rather than hogging seats a true fan would kill for.
They just don't want Charles' camera there while they monopolize the situation - entertaining themselves at the tax payers expense (assuming the city or other government initiative has a "role" in this).
To keep the people, music and internet free - Charles should be embraced as tightly as these mini-PPPs - they provide a nice rush of excitement for a week or so, but Charles keeps the city hoping almost 365 days a year (except when he's at the hospital, getting a clean bill of health or down at the jail, getting worked over and robbed of his livelihood [Atlantica photos] by authoritarian thugs).
