It’s been an incredibly busy time here in safe confines of the KlosterKave. I’ve been sketching out a new book, researching a long-form piece for Grantland, and cultivating a richer, hardier autumnal beard with a steady diet of jerky and gravy. I’ve been away for too long, and for that I’m truly sorry. As a small token of penance, I am unveiling here a project that has been in the making for some time – my Ultimate Music Fan Survey. It’s in two parts, ten questions each. It should only take a few minutes to complete, although this is not to discourage you from devoting significant contemplative time to certain questions. There are serious philosophical inquiries of incredible gravity contained within these links, so please go at your own pace. Feel free to spread the word to fellow music aficionados – the more responses, the more reliable data. Once responses start to taper off, I will post the results here – I might even use pie charts. For now, please enjoy.
