They played a few songs at relevant points in the interview -- songs that the blurb says have been removed from the online release. The irony is that at one point, before playing Avril's Skater Boi, McBride said to the kids at home something to the effect of, "Go ahead and record this on your iPod. I don't mind. Avril doesn't mind. Go right ahead!"Ah, our public broadcaster, serving us all so well. I mean, I love the CBC and all, but why are they so terrified of this?
Apparently CBC's lawyers mind.
Secondly (and this isn't really ironic, just funny) Kevin Drum is hawking titanium frying pans. This is funny to me, because I've seen these pans before, and was initially interested in them until I had a conversation with the salesman. The conversation went something like this:
Me: Wow - non-teflon, non-stick frying pans. Just titanium, huh?
Salesman: Yup. Made in Germany.
Me: Really? Who in Germany is making titanium frying pans? (Dreading answer.)
Salesman: A company called Krupp.
Me: (Dread justified.)
Now, the company Kevin points us all to is Danish, so he suggests getting a frying pan to support free speech. Whatever. If it means money goes to the Danes instead of the company that used to make artillery for the Kaiser and the Nazis, I'm all for it. Several of the Krupps were indicted at the Nuremberg Tribunal, so I say buy Denmark.
