Bucky Ballot

My latest waste-o diversion is making my selections for CBC Radio 3's First Annual Bucky Awards. These voter-determined accolades for the Canadian independent music scene have trivially engaging categories like "Best Facial Hair" and "Band that most Resembles Itself" (Tegan & Sara would be too easy, they're identical twins after all...)

I am exercising my franchise with due diligence, attuning my discerning ear to assess the entries in "Catchiest Beat" and "Best Flow", doing my best to judge entirely on the merits of the music and not my loyalties to the artists (although it is near impossible to bring myself to vote against Joel Plaskett, Emily Haines, or Ron Sexsmith).

It's hard work voting in on-line polls!
