I just wanted to take a break from watching old Cop Rock clips on youtube to bring your attention to the following event happening at
Sunday, June 28th at 2:00pm
1. New York’s Matthew LeMay, Pitchfork writer and author of “XO,” a book about Elliott Smith’s, arguably, greatest record and the myths and misunderstandings that surround his popular image.
2. Toronto’s own Carl Wilson of Zoilus.com and The Globe and Mail, author of “Let’s Talk About Love: A Journey to the End of Taste,” a book about the Celine Dion album with that Titanic song on it, the deep and dubious reasons why people hate Celine Dion, and why Elliott Smith thought they shouldn’t.

*Abby, Continuum’s resident Torontonian, assures me that this is in fact the correct term for a person from Toronto. She might be pulling my leg though.
