Amanda Saint Informs Ghost Talker It Isnie Her!!!!

Posted by Jill Angel Stafford on Jan 04, 2008

Last year was a bullsh**it year for the real Amanda Saint aka Amanda Stafford. Originally a Marvel Comic book fill-in who died and faded into obscurity in the mid seventies she is now finally reborn.  Still cursed with mortality new knowledge in her reincarnated form of being Celt Sun Goddess both blinded and over-whelmed her. Hardship followed three-fold. Amanda Stafford in her mortal form endured corrupt role models, darkened souls and callous behaviour. Not to mention loss of dignity, loss of friends, loss of money and ofcourse like others would have you believe sanity. Below is where it began so to speak. Critics know most musicians have to work and to most art has no value in the modern world. In Celt culture the way I see it the Sun Goddess illuminates peoples souls. I am a proud Celt girl and an immigrant from Scotland. Ghost Talker I am glad you like the song it is not my favourite as I wrote it as a teenager so the words have a different meaning to me. You see I always wanted to go back home as my parents brought here through no choice of my own. The sad truth though is you can never go home as times passes you by and things change. The one thing I can bring from my homeland is a love of music and dance!!!! Celt power all the way!!!!

Tonite`s episode:

"New Host, New Job East End Appears!!!!"  

Overview:

New host Chris Staig sang and made a comment we could sing Elvis songs in tribute to his 73rd birthday. One person did my mummy is a fan me I am different pictures of the king himself litter her walls. Anyway I was in a bad mood when I arrived as I was 11th and I get restless waiting I am like a big kid in ways. However when I told Chris (my ex) to shut up I was O.K. silence is golden sometimes. My brain is not use to working so many things fill the mind as I have started a new job. I had to remind myself that in the summer for amusement I would not sleep for 2 days as I quit smoking pot for a while and sleep deprivation can be intoxicating what can I say. I also seen a performer I had not seen since Graffitis`s. They use to have an open mike nicknamed "Mad Bastard Cabaret" on Monday nights hosted by Kevin Quain in Kensington Market part of Toronto. Anyway he did a version of a David Bowie song that was truly unique. I have never heard the 1974 classic Diamond Dogs ever been sung that way Bowie himself would have been awe struck!!!! Also I cannot help but notice that East Enders are making the pilgrimage to the West End of Toronto. I do not feel the need myself to go East as I know the best musicians are located in the West End.

Songs:

Life Death and the American Dream

It was a tribute to my eviction and Ghost Talker when fundamentalist right wing religious American loves your music you know you have hit a nerve. You see freaky girls like me may be damned for eternity but they know I can sing like an angel if I want!!!! For reference see below link: http://radio3.cbc.ca/bands/Amanda-Saint/blog/2008/01/Amanda-Saint-Informs-Ghost-Talker-It-Isnie-Her

I explained the meaning of the song to me being about 2 men talking or how I envision it!!!!

After Show:

Chris (my ex) said people seemed to like me. It made my heart glow to still see cute kids dressed in black in the audience, as I am not a hippie. It turned out to be a good night after all as I got to do what I love enough said!!!!

Tonite`s episode:

"1st Appearance After Move CIBC Geek Alert!!!!"  

Overview:

I must admit what I like about Mitzi`s is it is one of the few bars in Toronto where you can have friendly conversations with strangers. I love to watch people on the prowl.  Work is a necessary evil I must admit. I am beginning to realize why I hate women. You see me I want to be left alone and today I had to deal with petty behaviour I mean I know to some I dress like a slut, however to deny me Styrofoam cups well what can I say!!!! I like to encourage instead of hearing it via a 3rd party. Anyway back to the music and not caring if they hate me!!!! 

Songs:

Sunshine:

Chris Staig introduced me as I tested my guitar I think my amp was dying. I strummed away some rift to test it as Chris was trying to introduce me. The amp made it. Anyway this is a Saint style feel good song. Listen to the chorus that's my favourite part!!!!

Gotta Get Down:

I like to talk about CIBC VISA when I do this song I must admit I prefer travel to banks. As a special note today in replacement of the Styrofoam cup I brought into work my stainless steel CIBC Visa mug. I asked the audience to imagine me in a bank. It is a geek alert that is my observation. Don't you worry though I have already made enemies at work based on rumours from the past, I feel they judge me, remember it's none of your business I wish people would ask me to my face. I really have nothing to hide I am innocent and bewildered because your life only seems to mean something to people when it's scandalous.

After Show:

A girl and boy were sitting in back and the girl said thank you.  I love that stuff because there's no money in it but you realize most people talk about pursuing a dream, me I do. You see in essence art is a pure evolution of emotion and senses combined as one. It gets you through the day knowing that you can most never try, enough said!!!!

Tonite`s episode:

"The Saint Comments On YVR, Little Scotland Rules and a Stern Warning To 10th Generation Scottish Weasels!!!!"  

Overview:

Before my expose on my favourite open stage in Toronto. I would like to tribute a CBC 10th generation Scottish weasel due to the backstabbing and sneaky behaviour I have had to endure with like-minded woman in the office. Now mummy tells me to be nice yet the only Canadian friend she has is French Canadian!!!!  Why do you think I have to seek the comfort of the Eastern European community, if you are beyond 2nd generation in my opinion you are no good!!!!! Carole MacNeil is a disgrace when I had to endure the lies and negative image of the beautiful city of Glasgow Scotland. I was disgusted I live in Canada and also own a nice knife I have had for 16years now!!!! Do you know Ms MacNeil Glasgow won awards on architecture and beauty and that wee boy you interviewed did warn you not to disrespect Glasgow yet you did? Don't you know they all have relatives in Toronto I am surprised you are in one piece to be honest with you? You are a shit reporter since I havenie been back due to a messy divorce I would love you to make good and instead of denigrating your culture learn why you are Canadian and not Scottish.  We can make a documentary together and I will ensure it presents my place of birth in a good light. Which brings me to the Scottish talent in the pub. The 1st act was featured on CBC radio 3 and has moved from YVR even Staig has had air play not Amanda Saint ofcourse although Korsi I do appreciate the Merry Christmas and you have a good sense of humour. Why don't your cronies stop playing their friends? He admits to the hippies although my ex`s comment I will not report on due to the negative image of a certain culture prevalent in YVR.  The YVR refugee even met a friend who sat beside him. A few acts on his new friend was so excited that he attacked the mike stand. Now I should also tribute one the regulars from London. Even with the accent he is a loser and is a pride to the Celt nation because he has a high voice, cannie dress, and plays piano keep up the shit talent England!!!! Which brings me to the act before me.

The wee blonde boy in the audience screamed out in horror his guitar isnie in tune I tried to stick up for the act but people were leaving the bar. I must admit nails scraping on a blackboard would have been easier to endure!!!! I was brave though since I advised buddy not to touch my mike stand so on with show since Staigy knew I was on my own!!!! He was laughing because everyone was in a state of shock after that one!!!!

Songs:

Poor Poor Johnny Drunken Trip:

I encouraged the audience to drink as after all McAuslan is $5cad a pint. I mentioned my blog last week as it is a personal favourite you see CBC may not play my music but even Strombie I bet reads my blogs.  Thanks for not responding to my email I now know I no longer have to watch "The Hour" as I have cable now enough said!!!!

Baby Really Love It When Your DOA:

I introduced this as one of my personal favourites. I love the rift and to poser like Stroumboulopoulos learn an instrument before you develop an attitude. Trust me in high school the cool kids like me and Stepto would never look at you twice!!!!

After Show:

The blonde kid asked me who originally performed "Baby Really Love It When Your DOA" as he would like to cover it. I wrote it I responded Sammy did good as well I watched his act all kidding aside. Music snobs only appreciate you when you have a hit right? Hope I never succeed because then people like Stroumboulopoulos will want to know me right. I respect Korsi as she has supported me regardless I know who the music lovers are!!!! Enough Said!!!!

Tonite`s episode:

" Freezing in T.O.!!!!"  

Overview:

Tonight I was actually freezing my ass off smoking cigarettes outside. Thank you Premier Dalton Maguinty (I know it's spelled wrong but when I see old perverts smoking outside strip clubs I know a lot of us hate you and the hippy legislation you passed on smoking!!!!)  With stupid dolts in mind it brings back memories of my British Airways phone work with mainly American members. To clear up any confusion in Toronto bone-chilling cold happens maybe at most 3 weeks a year I figure. Ofcourse I hate it because it dries out my skin and is not pleasant to endure as even snot can freeze. So to my American neighbours to the South just keep in mind there are colder places in the U.S. I bet Philly or Chicago let's not forget Buffalo are just AS HELLISH!!!! You should know aswell from time to time I have been known to comment on "Vice Magazine". Special Note: (I cannie add to the Punk html anymore CBC radio 3 is lucky to have it instead!!!!)  So as a special treat I have found this prema link on I think related to the history network my birth father grew up in the Gorbels and ignorant behaviour is plaguing our society. As my mummy has told me in some ways Canada U.S. cultural misunderstanding parallels English Scottish misunderstanding!!!! http://boards.historychannel.com/thread.jspa?threadID=300023512&start=45

Anyway you can tell from the above overview for the most part it was an uneventful night so on with the song analysis!!!!

Songs:

Mother Ovation Classic Live: 

This one I practiced although I must admit with the chest cold and actual cold if you wanted to hear Amanda Saint's singing resemble Stevie Nicks from Fleetwood Mac tonight you hit the jackpot!!!! As men have told me I have a raspy voice but I like to sing clean once in a while!!!! Mummy should also know the aggression and feeling of the songwriter's intent was full tilt boogie in the execution of the song. My little sis Jill would have been proud, as she is the only one that knows the true mummy!!!!

Should Have Seen Her Saturday On The Fly Mix:

Like a lot of veteran musicians to the open stage review jobs interfere with rehearsal time so once and a while you have to go with the flow!!!! I must say myself there was a hard edge garage feel to my rendition tonight I even made up words on the 2nd verse. It was a magical night I promise in the future to substitute words so every performance will be special to my fans!!!!

After Show:

My ex- Chris said my voice was really raspy tonight. I must admit I only watch American Idol when it's the beginning and the acts are bad. I would never myself want to be a pop star (thank god I'm past it!!!!) but I can only imagine the frustration a kid with dreams would have if they were sick and fate not talent killed there dreams!!!! Anyway I went for a smoke Chris asked if he could come I said no!!!! Outside a guy asked me who wrote "Should Have Seen Her Saturday" as he really liked the song again I replied it was me!!!! The 1st song he said reminded him of Lou Reed I liked that correlation as my itunes version of "Sunshine" someone said reminded him of Pink Floyd and I like that to!!!! You see you know your relationship is down the toilet when you have to leave to feel good about yourself keep that in mind ladies!!!!

" High School Jazz Equals Art Critics!!!!"  

Overview:

http://www.songcastmusic.com/profiles/amandajanestafford

http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=829181831

I have updated my bio in Songcast as my ex Chris reminds me I am selling Sweet Fuck All On Itunes!!!! What amuses me however is if you go on to the Featured Profiles to my laughter I must admit profiles exist with no discography, email, or bio. What I am to do being an aspiring entrepreneur and all, as I said before if you want a cheap laugh click on the Featured Profile list and see if they exist!!!! Anyway I arrived in a freaked out mood as my favourite bartender was missing and the music no longer Alternative Rock but High School Contemporary Jazz. The crowd didnie seem the same and the overbooked review was skinnier than usual. The good news for Amanda Saint was I went on 4th, which is good cause 4, is my favourite number!!!!

Songs:

Knocking Knocking On Your Front Door:

To me the crowd seemed filled with Art Critics and a woman who's cleavage defied gravity as her low cut top was hard to miss!!!! I encouraged them to drink. I dedicated yet again the song to the fine men woman in blue at 11th Division in the fine city called Toronto Canada who inspired it. You see recently I HAVE MOVED AND APPRECIATE THAT THE FRONT ENTRANCE WAY HAS CAMERAS I love channel 59. Ironically enough where I work a Police Station is near, but to me if you have witnesses you are safe. As those who have been harassed by law enforcement must know they do not like to give out there names. So to me I know that a camera protects me from the cops as they can get away with it!!!! I want my Health Card back but I know someone will get in trouble so I will never see it again!!!!

Baby Really Love It When Your DOA:

I know people like it and it has a catchy rift!!!!

After Show:

I went for a smoke and was happy my voice sounded in shape. As what I have done in recent as I have a job now and as people who deal with people know, people are a primary source of stress, is dance and sing along to music I like. Recently I bought "Beautiful" by Garbage and sing along to "Shut Your Mouth" and "Til The Day I Die" as I love the way Shirley Manson sings. I harmonize though as I have a slightly deeper voice and love to play with the interpretation. I have always believed that Scottish woman are the best white girl singers. They do not care about the rules and base singing on feel. When I was 15 years old I saw Annie Lennox do "Who's That Girl" to an acoustic guitar she did it perfectly. You see to me if you can sing stripped down and feel it you are a Goddess. Anyway my ex followed me out and gave his usual two cents saying you did good ashame about the audience. Usually I go out to smoke to escape and have peace and quiet and watch the crack freaks on the street, but now that's ruined!!!! Anyway inside we had a discussion on don't open your mouth unless you have the guts to do it yourself as my ex fancies himself a comedian, but it's in one ear and out the other so to speak. I should give honourable mention to the girl in the kilt that followed me. I know she wasnie Scottish and I know she didnie upstage me even though her ego would tell her she did. I promised a cover as she covered Diablo "Close To Me" eighties lesbo one hit wonder. I plan in the future "Sympathy For The Devil" with Staigy. Let's see if my brain will let me remember the words!!!! Stayed tuned for more Kiddies!!!!

"Substitute Blog Landlord Tennant Board Revisted"

Posted by Jill Angel Stafford on Mar 30, 2008

The Last week has been a trying one for Amanda Stafford akna Heather at work. The cat was on her last legs with blood coming out of her mouth. In the Stafford family spirit we continued on they brought me as an Easter present 4 cartons of DK`s, and we hung pictures on the walls. You see I figure tobacco from the Indian Reserve is better for me as I have always believed it's the preservatives they put in smokes that make you sick!!!! Don't worry though I would love to cut down on smoking but it is a crutch and fresh air and cigarettes seem to calm the nerves, as my cat died last week, and ta boot I have an admirer at work. A mature woman who sits behind me and I could not help but notice the cuts on her arms you see every time I look behind me she's looking it seems. I have made it obvious she it not my type. I have even referenced the outcome if I crack "Small Town Boy" "Bronski Beat" Saturday she seemed to linger behind so I told her not to follow me home no response it's amazing!!!!

Anyway in tribute to people some may view as sick and others perverts since I have now moved due to attempting to fix my toilet which unfortunately is considered negligence as the judge showed me the technicality on the lease that burned me. I will revisit The Trial and Tribulations on Amanda J Stafford verses The So- Use Credit Union:

Way back in April of 2007 beyond http://vice.typepad.com/vice_magazine/2007/09/dear-vice---ban.html and quitting my job for a better life after deserved time off. I discovered to my dismay even though my ex wore on my nerves (that is why he is gone), that being single women after a 15year relationship had its challenges. Anyway the outcome of trying to fix my toilet was flooding. The landlord took me to court, as originally he wanted money out of my family. I lost but I must admit I stuck up for myself and one good thing about Canada is everyone can have there day in court as it was important for me to prove to my family, it was accidental and no malicious intent was involved which I was successful in doing!!!!

Trial Breakdown:

Missed original Landlord Tennant Board appearance June 23rd. 2007

Outcome: Eviction

Remedy: Pay $50CAD and request a Stay On the Eviction

Result: Stay On Eviction:

NEEDED THE ACTUAL LADY WHO WAS SICK TO EXPLAIN WHY IF I
ASKED HER TO TURN OF THE WATER SUPPLY AT THE MAIN DUE TO
THE FAWCET BEHIND THE TOLIET FROM BEING SEIZED AND UNABLE TO
TURN OFF TO PREVENT FLOODING TO SO-USE CREDIT UNION. IN

INTIMIDATING AND ABRASIVE ATTITUDE!!!! THE MATTER BETWEEN
SO-USE CREDIT UNION AND AMANDA STAFFORD 240-304 DURIE STREET

Reference 1.1:

To Whom It May Concern,

Below is a retyped reproduction of the letter I received from my landlord (So-Use Credit Union) on September 28th, 2007:

September 20, 2007
Ms. Amanda Stafford
240 Durie Street, Unit #304
Toronto, ON
M4T 1M6

Dear Ms. Stafford:

Re: August 27, 2007, Madame Chair Olga Luftig asked us if there were any dates we would not
be available to continue the hearing. So-Use Credit Union, at the time, did not have any
problems with dates in September other than those disclosed at the time, being September 4th
and 5th. The rest of September did not present any problem with us. Madame Chair Luftig
indicated to us if there were any problems with the eventual date, both parties would have to
agree to change the date.

Although I do not personally have any problem with October 4, 2007, I have just learned that our
Property Manager and a witness (and who was present on both July 23rd and August 27th) will
not be in the country from October 1st to October 10th. We did not expect that the adjournment
would go into the month of October.

Please consider this letter as our formal written request to you to change that date until a mutually
agreeable date after October 10,2007, so that our Property Manager can testify at the hearing. In
addition, we will not be able to attend a hearing scheduled on the following dates:
 Monday October 15
                       Tuesday October 16
                       Tuesday October 23
                       Friday November 2
                       Monday November 5
                       Tuesday November 6
                       Wednesday November 7

we would appreciate a response to our request, in writing, by Wednesday September 26, 2007.
Thank you.

Your Truly,

(Signature)

Marc Sirard
Chief Executive Officer

pHs. Since I received the letter on Friday September 28th, how would I proceed to respond to this letter? In addition I believe it would not be my responsibility to agree to a change of date on the continuation of the eviction hearing. In fact I think it would be between Madame Chair Olga Luftwig and the So-Use Credit Union.

Please respond prior to October 4th 2007 to email address mandiejane@amandasaint.com or I will assume that I should not attend October 4th 2007 Landlord Tenant Board Hearing (LTB) until otherwise advised.

Yours Truly,

Amanda Jane Stafford

RE: August 27,2007 Hearing Adjournment to October 4, 2007


Dear Ms. Stafford,

I do not understand why you say: "Please advise ASAP as to what date you
want, after you contact the Landlord Tennant Board (LTB) Madame Chair
Luftig." I have already communicated to you in my email earlier today
to you, we are proceeding on October 4th as directed. We are not
changing the date. In fact, my actual words were: "Please be advised
that So-Use Credit Union will be at the hearing on October 4, 2007 and
you should be there as well."

We will see you at the hearing on October 4th.

Yours truly

Marc Sirard
CEO, So-Use Credit Union

   --- the forwarded message follows ---

Please advise ASAP as to what date you want, after you
contact the Landlord Tennant Board (LTB) Madame Chair
Luftig. Again it is not my responsibility (Amanda Jane
Stafford) tenant's problem. It would be the problem of
the So-Use Credit Union since even though you have damaged
my apartment (304-240 Durie Street) with unauthorized work
orders, (painting my living room and bedroom beige)
nothing to do with flooding. In fact I still have a
constantly running toilet, bathroom has not been painted
in 6years, and paint is flaking from the ceiling. Not to
forget a faucet that constantly drips, unpainted kitchen
in 6 years, garbage piled up in the back alleyway
attracting rats, and a superintendent that has approached
me outside, accused me of removing a "For Rent" sign which
I did not. In fact laughing at the fact I will not be
living there much longer. Maybe you could even replace my
blinds or broken fan that was damaged when my apartment
was left in a shambles, not only when it 1st repainted it
an ugly colour and was not required, but when I awoke on
the 2nd occasion to find approximately six men including
(Lee) packing my possessions in boxes and I had not even
dressed. Wanting to fix my cupboards by just showing up (a
notice in my door is not due notice) when my mailbox key
sticks. In addition having to call the police on 2
occasions as (Lee) and neighbour in apartment
(204) entered my apartment without my permission.

Final Outcome: I) Stay Removed

                          II) Eviction Notice Christmas Eve

                          III) Pay So-Use Credit Union Insurance Deductible and Court Costs

                                (Sorry I forget the amount due to move!!!!)

Anyway in retrospect I am alive have a roof over my head and I always tell myself it could be worse!!!!

    AMANDA SAINT akna Heather (European Reservations!!!!)

    All I can say is when I looked at the comments in the high school year book (Cawthra Park Drama Program Alumni!!!!) I was shocked as a few comments were hidden in the ad pages. References to stripping and travel were mentioned!!!! Travel became an actual reality for me over 10years now. Music with an Indie edge also has become a reality due to it!!!! Believe it not "The Birkman Report" a personnel hiring tool lists high creative ability and travel agent go figure!!!! Check it out!!!!

  • I must admit that my life has been plagued by geeks.

  • Now it has become a mission of I AMANDA SAINT and other well known aliases to break sterotypes. One of which that geeks are smart, please view above article for reference!!!! Also keep in mind, that the good travel agents and travel personnel are usually good looking and hate corporate geeks, pretentious noveau art critics and ofcourse A and R goofs!!!! Not to mention these people have to fly a lot on commercial carriers so keep that in mind Mc Witty Criag Norris!!!!
