A couple days back an enlightening article appeared on the CBC that published the findings of a Scottish University's study aimed at unearthing the link between musical taste and personality.
And I have some bad news: indie music fans did not fare well. At all.
Apparently we lack both self-esteem and a steady work ethic.
Now I used the collective pronoun back there because I assumed you're an indie music fan; if you're not, well, according to this study that's for the better. But fortunately, there's a musical genre remedy for anyone ailing from low self-esteem - which I don't think I am, pretty sure anyways - and that is embracing whimsical Jazz since, "Jazz fans tend to be creative and outgoing, with high self-esteem."
As for the poor work ethic, that's irrefutable: a prudent, hard-working person would certainly be reading a novel at this moment (that must be read for Thursday), instead of blogging.
But I can always blame its incompletion on being an indie music fan.
The reincarnated Watchmen are playing the MTS Centre on October 30th, part of Power 97's Super Powerball Extravaganza. Tickets are only $14.97 for the first 1000 folks, then shoot up $5 after the first K are sold. Don't know when they're on sale.
Current rotation: M83 - Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts
