Carl Wilson on Celine Dion

Here's a nice interview with Carl Wilson- not, that is, the Beach Boy, but rather the author of the most worthwhile response that I came across to that recent Sasha Frere Jones New Yorker article on whiteness in indie rock that so predictably caused such a stir. Wilson's newly-published book on Celine Dion is the subject of the above interview, and it sounds like a very thoughtful articulation of matters I spend a lot of quiet time dwelling on, so I just bumped it to the top of my reading list.

Leave it to Canada to select the least legible font for this bridge-building article. Can't Canada be a little less boring?

They have such amazing things to say, and a tremendous wisdom about the human race. I like the Canadian magazine The Walrus, for instance.

It had a recent issue on The Arctic, and in it there was a personal essay about a guy who lived in the arctic and found a dead walrus and gouged out its teeth, when he found that someone else had gotten to its tusks.

It was all for the glory of having a piece of walrus bone.
