Elliott vs. Celine / Matt LeMay vs. Carl Wilson

May I have your attention, Torontonians*!

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

Soundscapes in Toronto
Sunday, June 28th at 2:00pm

Reading and discussion with two writers from the 33 1/3 series of short books about albums:

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.

For more info, visit the Soundscapes website here.

*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.
