While we'll leave the inevitable gloating, hand-wringing, and potential wagering to all the jurors, bloggers, and music fans out there, here are some fun facts about this year's shortlist to mull over in the lead-up to the big show on September 19…

Much in the same way that we had a bit of fun hunting down some 2012 Polaris Music Prize Long List <a href = 'http://polarismusicprize.ca/article/418/2012-polaris-long-list-fast-facts/'>fast facts</a>, we also decided to do a bit of nerding out about the <a href = 'http://polarismusicprize.ca/article/435/the-2012-polaris-music-prize-short-list-is-here/'>recently-announced</a> Short List.
So we've compiled some fast facts about the Polaris Music Prize 2012 Short List:
Polaris People For The Week Of June 8 ““ Dan Bejar Speaks, Julie Doiron Day Happens, Toads Get Licked, And More
One week. Actually less than that. Six days. June 14.
That's when the 2012 Polaris Music Prize Long List gets officially announced in Vancouver, BC with the <a href = 'http://polarismusicprize.ca/article/409/dan-mangan-hannah-georgas-veda-hille-to-be-at-polaris-music-prize-long-list-reveal-in-vancouver-on-june-14/'>help</a> of Dan Mangan, Hannah Georgas and Veda Hille. That night will also feature the official launch to arguing about said list with a <a href = 'http://polarismusicprize.ca/article/410/vancouver-long-list-review-happening-june-14-2012/'>Vancouver Polaris Salon</a>. And after that? Dance party.
Meanwhile, those artists who've already proven their worth by hitting past Polaris Lists, the Polaris People, continued to do interesting things this week.
Polaris People For The Week Of April 20 ““ Patrick Watson Everywhere, Owen Pallett + Linkin Park And More
OMG, did you hear about Hologram Tupac at Coachella? That's craaaayyzzzeee. It's totally cool right? Like, think of all the possibilities? You could have Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain and Jim Morrison on the same stage at the same time!
We'll stick to real performers, thanks. Like the Polaris People. They're the best and they did all kinds of interesting stuff this week.
If last month was supposed to be <a href = 'http://polarismusicprize.ca/article/373/polaris-people-for-the-week-of-april-6-plants-and-animals-owen-pallett-great-lake-swimmers-and-more/'>Death March</a>, whatâ€™s this month? April-calypse? 'Cause it sure doesnâ€™t feel any less busy.
Here at Polaris Central weâ€™ve been up to all kinds of things. Weâ€™ve got Salons happening in <a href = 'http://polarismusicprize.ca/article/377/toronto-new-juror-initiation-night-salon-happening-april-17-2012-in-toronto/'>Toronto</a> and <a href = 'http://polarismusicprize.ca/article/375/the-shivers-by-slam-dunk-happening-april-17-2012-in-vancouver/'>Vancouver</a> on April 17, then one in Montreal on April 28. On top of that, two of the Salons we did in February in <a href = 'http://polarismusicprize.ca/article/376/vancouver-polaris-salon-podcast-for-feb-21-2012-online-at-aux-tv/'>Vancouver</a> and <a href = 'http://polarismusicprize.ca/article/378/montreal-polaris-salon-podcast-for-feb-25-2012-online-at-aux-tv/'>Montreal</a> are now podcasts courtesy of AUX TV.
We arenâ€™t the only ones being busy, though. The actual musicians, the whole reason we exist, were full-on working, too.
