is there any debate that the queen of canadian blogging is, has been
and probably will forever be Raymi the Minx?
as you know i am a gigantic fan of canadian blogs, canadian blogging
so i say that with all much due respect to all the others up there
shining a light on the great white north.
but raymi has seriously put it out there.
and whats fascinating, she hasnt even put it all out there.
love her or hate her raymi has led by example for the last 16 years
which has arguably been the best 16 years of blogging.
today east coast west coast united in love as
bc’s keira-anne interviews to’s raymi for 20 questions
long before their super sweet 80s hit “Forever Young” appeared (beautifully) in “Napoleon Dynamite“,
the german group Alphaville in 1984 released their debut single
“Big in Japan”
a melancholy synth driven curiosity reportedly about two lovers trying to kick heroin.
I will wait here for my man tonight
It’s easy when you’re big in Japan
waiting for the man, a nod for what lou reed was doing on the velvet underground’s debut track two decades previously
Hey, white boy, what you doin’ uptown?
Hey, white boy, you chasin’ our women around?
Oh pardon me sir, it’s the furthest from my mind
I’m just lookin’ for a dear, dear friend of mine
I’m waiting for my man
but really it was about being a loser in your hometown, but it’s ok
in a beautifully magical place
across the sea
there are people who understand you perfectly and love you
and there you are godhead.
the people of france think i was the editor of the daily nexus.
but whatevs, merci.
