In a truly sad bit of news, beloved Canadian music journalist Nardwuar the Human Serviette has suffered a stroke.
The news of Nardwuar's condition was made public today (December 9) through his various social media pages. It was explained that Nardwuar had suffered the stroke while at Mint Records' Christmas party on Saturday (December 5) at Vancouver's Astoria venue. He was taken to Vancouver General Hospital and remains in the facility's care.
A tweet, which you'll find below, includes a picture of an ambulance's route away from the Astoria, which noted that it was picking up a "confused male" with an "altered level of consciousness."

His sense of humour is there, and stroke or no stroke, he's still editing his videos and returning emails from his hospital bed."
