Stevo gets up on stage with Yo Yo Ma at the NAC… how pinko-lefty is THAT?

Well, I have to grudgingly give credit where due. After all of the arts-bashing that this government has been merrily doing, some keener at the PMO came up with the good idea to try and portray The Boss (not the one that performs with Clarence et al) as slightly less aggressive.

I would have loved to have been a bird on the wall in THAT meeting.

Keener: Well, sir, we feel that it would be a smart idea to try and come across as pro-arts… might get us a few centre-left swing votes in the 24-35 female demo.


Keener: S-s-sorry sir.

Steve: Better. Now what have you come up with. SPEAK!

Keener: Uh, well, the famous cellist, Yo Yo Ma is coming to town in early October. Maybe you could get on stage on do a song with him. Something light, like “Sunshine and Lollipops”???

Steve: WHAT!!!! That’s a GIRL song!

Keener: Sorry again… s-s-s-sir. How about “I get by with a little help from my friends”? An old Beatles tune???

Steve: I HAVE NO FRIENDS! ONLY POLITICAL ALLIES!!! But wait, that song does compute to a 4.6% increase in the 55-65 white female dog-owners demographic. Hmmm. Yes, I will do it. Now prepare my bath!

Now. Iggy. How the hell are you gonna follow up?
