Inspired by Sofi’s Canada Day list of Sexy Typewriter’s Top 14 Canadian Boyfriends, here’s my attempt at a List of Top Canadian Girlfriends. Let’s take it as a work in progress, shall we.
♥ Aisslinn Nosky, violinist
Just go to one of her concerts and all will be clear.
♥ Adrianne Pieczonka, soprano
Most of all, because of the Puccini CD, which crushed me.
♥ Margaret MacMillan, historianBecause Paris 1919 reads like Noel Coward. Spectacular off-the-cuff public speaker, great sense of humour. Plus, reminds a bit of Vita Sackville-West.
♥ Diane Dufresne, singer/screamer/angry woman/artist
♥ k d lang
♥ Karina Gauvin, soprano
Because of everything. Lately, the Purcell and Canteloupe CDs.
♥ Marie-Nicole Lemieux
Because of, doh–everything, but especially that long interview on France Classique. And Vivaldi alto coloraturas. And “Ne me refuse pas” CD. And and and and and and and and.
♥ Margaret Atwood, writer/sage
Mostly because of getting it. And Cat’s Eye. And Surfacing. And feminism, but that comes under getting it.
♥ Nancy Greene, skier
♥ Patricia Rozema, film director
♥ Josey Vogels, sex columnist
♥ Regine Chassagne (Arcade Fire)
♥ Tanya Tagaq, Inuit throat singer
