What trend would you like to see less of in the new year?
The decay of the English language and grammar in both casual and formal Internet communication.
Which of your prior resolutions have you succeeded in keeping?
The only thing I've ever kept in my life is a really, really bad lifestyle, which I've finally quit. How's that for resolve!?!
What are you looking forward to in the new year?
A civic activist or official brave, bright and noble enough to put an end to the gunfire in Toronto and get wayward youth back on track. In other words: fucking leadership.
What changes would you like to see in the way music is made in Canada?
A return to memorable lyrics and the calibre of voice (and melody) that allows them to be heard. Or is it my hearing that's in decline?
Which underappreciated Canadian artists will be huge in 2009?
If there's any justice: Montreal's Hexes and Ohs, Toronto's Two Koreas.
