I’m not sure where you are right now, dear reader, but here in Montreal it’s pretty bloody cold. I consider myself a winter creature, but the wind-chill is resolved to carve off my face with an ice pick. However, to combat the frigid temperatures while walking around the city, I find that listening to icy music lends equilibrium to the season, and makes the -30 somewhat more bearable. Think of it as fighting snow with snow.
