Julia Lau: In the Wildflowers and Weeds

Posted:5/29/2006 3:02:00 PM by Joel Edelman
Listening to this album crashed my broswer, but why should you care? Julia Lau does an excellent Paula Cole impression on In the Wildflowers and Weeds, but what does it all mean?

Well, there's plenty of low- and midtempo tunes on the album, and some of them run together a bit, but her voice is so even-keeled that it's not a problem. Read the full review >>>

Petition in support of Ghomeshi's alleged victims signed by F*cked Up, Constantines

As you may know by now, CBC star Jian Ghomeshi was recently fired by the radio network after receiving reports that Ghomeshi exhibited violent behavior and unwanted sexual actions towards multiple women. Now, a petition has been started to support the alleged victims of Ghomeshi.

In part, the petition states, "We condemn the PR attempt to make you out to be a "jilted ex” and we see through the deplorable strategy of re-routing a conversation that should be about consent and assault to one about BDSM. No one should be abused anywhere - not on a date, not in a workplace. No one should be intimidated out of coming forward with their own stories."

Notably, the petition is signed by several prominent musicians including Fucked Up, The Constantines, Owen Pallett, Jennifer Castle, Katie Stelmanis, and many others. See the petition here.

Charges dropped against man jailed for posting Exodus lyrics

As you may recall, earlier this year, a man was jailed for posting Exodus lyrics on his face book. James Evans posted lyrics from the Exodus song "Class Dismissed" on his Facebook page and was jailed by Kentucky police for making terroristic threats. He spent more than a week in jail before being released (without having the charges dropped.)

Well, recently, the charges were dropped against Evans. Represented by the ACLU, Evans through an ACLU attorney stated "Evans is relieved that these very serious criminal charges have been dismissed, and he is grateful for all of the support he has received during this difficult time. A conviction on first-degree terroristic threatening could have landed Evans in jail for up to 10 years."

The police and DA's office have not released a statement.
