    What up peoples! I've just dusted myself off after
    making angels in the snow outside for the past 20
    minutes, and my snowpants are drying over the fake
    fire here in the office (what's up guys! This is only
    taking me a few minutes, I swear). Been a mad hectic
    week since...well...last week. Canadian Music Week
    breezed through Toronto...and was it ever a mild
    breeze. What is with the lack of 'official promotion'
    for events showcasing styles of music besides those
    based on self-congratulatory guitar noodling? Not
    that I don't dig some nice indie rock shit at times,
    but the lack of interest in promoting electronic and
    urban music is completely reflective of the archaic
    views of a music industry built on guarenteed returns
    on financial investments in artists that are churn out
    these styles in the most palatable and boring forms
    for the mainstream. It's pretty sad.

    YA GOT THAT? If I was in grade 11 english class, I'd
    probably get red marks all over that last sentence.

    Ok, so the rant could go on and on...but really, I
    needs ta let you peoples know about a very special
    guest reaching up to the 'BEST KEPT SECRET' this

    The one and only PAW MIWA aka PPPP aka Agent 204 will
    be reaching up (hands outstreched for sho) to blend up
    some funk, post-punk, no wave, and melodic electronic
    treats for the 'Best Kept' faithful. Last time he
    touched down on the show, Paw blew our minds with
    tight selections and an encyclopaedic understanding of
    the choons he digs. Definitely tune in tonight if
    you're into getting schooled on some different
    biznizz, as Dalia and I try to stay outta the way of
    his hands banging out drum patterns on the edge of the

    Come and check out Dalia and myself Venus tomorrow

    Chicks Dig It has made itself a new Monday night home

    accordian freestyling chords with a percussionist
    jamming alongside. Niceness! All the selectahs were
    wikkid, of course...big ups to Sabrina, Chocolate,
