Polaris People For The Week Of February 22: 10 Great Gifs Edition
Sometimes we here in Polarisland need to shake things up a bit. So rather than compile all the latest brilliant bits of intersection between the music media and past Polaris nominees like we usually do, this week we did something different â€” we went gif hunting.
That’s right, we plunged headfirst into Tumblr’s darkest depths of fandom and here’s what we found:
Grimes (2012 Short List)
This is clearly Grimes pretending she’s Sauron entering the battlefield at the Siege of Barad-dur.
Leonard Cohen (2009, 2012 Long List)
This one was called “Leonard Cohen â€” White Man Dancing.”
Feist (2012 Champ, 2007 Short List)
Leslie Feist pretends she’s Chad Kroeger.
Fucked Up (2009 Champs, 2012 Short List)

This is bad sit-up form. (Also, check out some of The Grid’s other Polaris gifs.)
Drake (2012 Short List)
Neil Young (2011 Long List)
We were really hoping to find gifs of Shakey smoking some of those massive joints from Journey Through The Past. Alas, it doesn’t appear that Neil fans are prolific giffers.
Metric (2006 Short List, 2009 Short List)
Anyone else look at this and automatically start humming Ultravox’s “Dancing With Tears In My Eyes”? Anyone?
Coeur de Pirate (2009 Long List, 2012 Long List)
Well, this is clearly self-explanatory.
Owen Pallett (2006 Champ, 2010 Short List)
That is the picture of a man pleased with what he just accomplished.
Sloan (2011 Long List)
If this isn’t the most gif-able moment in Canadian music, I don’t know what is.
