Iqaluit Online Article

As I mentioned earlier, IqaluitOnline has done a story on my Canada Reads ambitions. I'm quite, quite happy with it. You can read it here. (And I just read that the White Stripes are in fact going to play here on June 27!!! It's a great day.)

That's a cool article, kinda brief, but should get your name out there a little more. The new White Stripes single is f'ing hot and they are great live, I suggest you get some tickets and go.

Fearless,
The author warned me it would be brief, but he was big on the praise, so I like it anyway! He also told me that he'd add any developments if they should arise, so it's nice to have him in my corner.

Apparently, there might be only 500 or so tickets sold at less than $40 a head, so I might have a hard time securing tickets. But I've been a long time fan and if there's a way, I'm going to be there. It's so unbelievable really. We hardly get any Canadian bands here, let alone the White Freakin' Stripes!

Nice article, John, and the links pointed me to the Canada Reads site where I posted a vote in favor of having you join the crew...I didn't tell them I was from Texas. :-)

Hey look, I've gotten Canada Reads attention from the Americans! See, I'm good for business...

Seriously though, thanks Sam. I really appreciate the support!

The link isn't working for me, I'll have to try again later. But that is excellent news anyways, getting your name out there.

And the White Stripes! Woot, hope you're able to score some tickets.

That's a great article with some great links in it. Well done you! I hope this helps raise your profile with a certain national broadcaster.

You really should try your darndest for tickets - you said yourself that you don't get many acts through town.

Allison,
I hope you were able to link there after. You're right though, the exposure could only help.

As for the White Stripes, my wife is as determined to go as I am, and if there's anyone able to make connections it's her. Hey, why haven't I gotten her to help with the whole Canada Reads thing?

Barbara, The CBC had no choice but to hear about it (I emailed the link to them). I just hope I'm still on the side of "Determined Fan" rather than "Crazy, Obsessed Blogger". It's such a fine line, eh?

Excellent nod in the article John, well done. I'm off to mention you to Canada Reads.

John Mutford said...

Thanks Dale,
Again, I appreciate the support. Though it's starting to seem like the only way they'll publish your comment is if it's against me! That can't be a good sign...
