Todd Babiak is an arts columnist at the Journal. Also, a novelist (immediately after publication, it's endearingly impossible to find copies of his books in Edmonton's independent bookstores that do not have his signature).
Also, apparently, Todd is someone with poor taste in music.
As someone whose colleagues insist on checking her iPod weekly -- to compare and contrast the Boney M single alongside the Moldy Peaches, the Beatles up against the Black Eyed Peas, and other embarrassments barely offset by the cool indy music my brother sends me -- I actually laughed out loud reading about Todd's office tribulations.
Ah.... Smooth Jazz....
