I'M YOUR MAN, MAYBE, BABY:  CanCon Warning! Our Juno Awards Desk (HT: Randy) has alerted us that the nominees for the best in Canadian Music have been announced this morning, and your nominees for Artist of the Year include Carly Rae Jepsen, Justin Bieber, Deadmau5, and Leonard Cohen.** Also receiving nominations in various categories? Kathleen Edwards, Japandroids, Michael Bublé, Rush, and Nickelback. This year's inductee into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame is k.d. lang, and yes I consciously rewrote this sentence to avoid capitalization issues.

** This is not as large an age gap as the Best Actress gap between Emmanuelle Riva and Quvenzhané Wallis.


  1. Mindblowing fact of the day--Carly Rae Jepsen is older than Adele. Really.

  2. Have any of you seen Leonard Cohen in concert the last couple of years? We saw him in Calgary in November - and the man performed for three and a half hours. Sure, there was a 20-minute intermission halfway thru, but still: this 78-year-old man performed for three and a half hours. When you've got a catalog as deep and as rich as his (with songs that often and easily hit the 6- or 7-minute mark), it's not surprising that he could put together a show that long. BUT STILL.

    AND he released a terrific album in 2012, too. In a way, I guess we should thank his manager for robbing him blind, and making sure this brilliant, amazing artist did not go gentle into that good night.

  3. I just saw k.d. lang last week do a couple of songs at the show Isaac posted a clip of earlier (called the "Cabinet of Wonders" and boy, was it ever). Somehow I always forget how amazing her voice is. I'm hoping that she will pop up more often now that she's moved to my hometown.

    (Shameful admission; I've always loved Cohen songs, but only when they've been covered. I've never liked him as a singer.)

    Also, what capitalization issue with K. D. Lang?

    "Kathleen Edwards, Japandroids, Michael Bublé, Rush, and Nickelback."
    One of these things is not like the others.

    Wait, five of these things are not like the others.
