Canadians aren't out of touch with the world at all.
I think Canadians think we're misrepresented and unappreciated and such, but we're not. We're just a normal country doing normal things. We're not special, but we're not completely unknown and misunderstood as well.
I'm proud to be Canadian. I think we live in a great country, but I assure you Canadian Aphrodite, there are far more than 5 canadian coldplay fans. I think they're concert at the ACC would justify this.
I wasn't the biggest fan of Billy Talent when they came out. I mean, I'm not a big fan of theirs right now either, but I've heard a lot of good things about their live show. A friend of mine who doesn't like ANY rock music saw them play at his university. He loved them! He went out and bought their cd that same day.
