Flattery Will Get You Linked

Zoilus has been included on the CBC arts website's roundup of "English Canada's best arts and entertainment blogs," for which I'm grateful. (They're in alphabetical order, so scroll down to the bottom... Hey, what's wrong with reverse alphabetical order now and then, hmm? [I've been saying this since I was a child whose name began with W.]) All fine company, of course, though the reprinted example of my post-Vegas blah-blah-blah seems rather short of being a "typical" post. (I can just imagine CBC site readers thinking, "Zounds! I simply must get more lame jokes about showgirls!") I also bristle at the "Wilson prefers indie rock, but dabbles in everything else" remark: I don't prefer indie rock to free jazz/improv or country music, for instance; what emerges here has more to do with my evolving sense of dialogue with readers than what I exactly prefer. Also, most of the artists covered here wouldn't call themselves indie rock. But that's semantics. Granted, though, in hip-hop I totally own up to dabbler status.
