Joey deVilla, aka
Accordion Guy in the 21st Century, is disgruntled (trust me, Accordion Guy is at his best when he's not gruntled). His beef? The fundraising dinner held last night for Canadian MP Sam Bulte, aka
Hollywood's MP, because of the perhaps coincidental linkage between her advocacy of extremely restrictive copyright legislation and her acceptance of financial support (57% of her campaign war chest) from institutions such as the Canadian Motion Pictures Distributors Association, Canadian Publishers Council, and the Entertainment Software Alliance.
Of course, AG, isn't simply opposed to Ms. Bulte—that's just politics and we wouldn't link to it. AG's angle is that Margot Timmins, of audiophile-revered Cowboy Junkies fame, is providing the entertainment, and, as AG correctly observes, the Cowboy Junkies probably owe their careers to the viral marketing that was the "mix tape," a form of courtship communication/ritual that Ms. Bulte's supporters are seeking to prohibit.
Worth the bandwidth.
