2004 CJLO Staff Picks

“Hey, let’s do our Top Ten lists and post them on the website”. You figure that would be enough to send everyone scurrying to their keyboards and add to the avalanche of year-end lists that are fail-safe crowd favourites, if not the mark of lazy writing. So what happens when we’re too lazy to even do that? Well lure them with free alcohol.

So it was at the CJLO Christmas Party that I navigated through the crowd in search of fellow CJLO DJs to fill out their lists so that you can shop better before the year is over. Of course, given that this mightily ambitious endeavour takes place in an alcohol-friendly environment, the lists were not always complete, readable or even dealing with our friend, Mr.2004. And that, lads, is punk rock journalism.
