    Yay, another of Montreal fan!

    I'm undecided about Stuart Murdoch from Belle and Sebastian. I want him to be beta, I really do, but part of me thinks his chronic fatigue syndrome could have something to do with how he comes across.

    Gary Glitter -- musician, ESTp, pedophile

    (...If Ezra fronted a band, I have a feeling that the performance would look a little like this...)

    Herzy, yeah, Maynard is a borderline case, just like Nick... It could go either way... (You like Tool..? I wish I knew more girls who liked Tool... My life would be better I think.)

    Some IEIs:

    Marilyn Manson




    Eminem

    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    I think Zack de la Rocha is either IEI or SEI. His music is more Beta, though. RAtM were my middle school favorites.



    "How could we forget those ancient myths that stand at the beginning of all races, the myths about dragons that at the last moment are transformed into princesses? Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love."

    Kurt Cobain (6 to 8.3)

    Freddie Mercury, I've gotten into Pink Floyd (7 to 10)
    David Bowie, I could definitely get into, thanks for mentioning
    Bono = awesome (7 to 9+)
    Michael Jackson (7+ to 9+)

    Wink possible beta musician: my two-cents

    Conor Oberst: IEI or LSI maybe? he had a traumatic and basically sh*tty childhood.



    a taste of his lyrics. they make me think IEI very much, except for the possibility of extensive and complex underlying meanings

    one of MY personal favorites, Lime Tree:
    I keep floating down the river but the ocean never comes
    Since the operation I heard you're breathing just for one
    Now everything is imaginary, especially what you love
    You left another message said it's done,
    It's done

    When I hear beautiful music it's always from another time
    Old friends I never visit, I remember what they're like
    Standing on a doorstep full of nervous butterflies
    Waiting to be asked to come inside
    Just come inside

    But I keep going out
    I can't sleep next to a stranger when I'm coming down
    It's 8 a.m. my heart is beating too loud
    Too loud
    Don't be so amazing or I'll miss you too much
    I felt something that I had never touched

    Everything gets smaller now the further that I go
    Towards the mouth and the reunion of the Known and the Unknown
    Consider yourself lucky if you think of it as home
    You can move mountains with your misery if you don't
    If you don't

    It comes to me in fragments, even those still split in two
    Under the leaves of that old Lime Tree I stood examining the fruit
    Some were ripe and some were rotten, I felt nauseous with the truth
    There will never be a time more opportune

    So I just won't be late
    The window closes, shock rolls over in a tidal wave
    And all the color drains out of the frame
    So pleased with a daydream that now living is no good
    I took off my shoes and walked into the woods
    I felt lost and found with every step I took
    "If you can find out little melodies for yourself on the piano it is all very well. But if they come of themselves when you are not at the piano, then you have still greater reason to rejoice; for then the inner sense of music is astir in you. The fingers must make what the head wills, not vice versa."- Robert Schumann

    I agree with IEI.

    The imagery in his lyrics is amazing. I used to really love this one:

    I baptized myself in change
    And one by one I drowned all of the people I had been
    I looked in the mirror and someone new was there
    Still I was as helpless as a chess piece when I was lifted up by someone's hand
    You are free! You are free! You are freezing

    Robert Del Naja of Massive Attack, IEI

    Best interview I've found:

    (0:30 onwards)




    (ignore the video, it is badly out of sync)

    Beth Gibson of Portishead, IEI (she's pretty uncooperative at first, but very interesting)


    (find the rest yourself)

    James Hetfield of Metallica, LSI

    lol, I love the way it is necessary to write that he is paedophile.

    By the way, I find it coincidental how Del Naja starts talking about Gary Glitter in the second video around 0:45 given the conversation, haha.

    Some popular rappers:

    T.I: EIE
    Eminem: EIE
    Lil' Wayne: IEI
    Birdman: SLE
    Paul Wall: SEE
    Cassidy: SLE
    Dr. Dre: SLE/LSI
    50 Cent: SLE
    Kanye West: SEE
    Tupac: IEI
    Immortal Technique: EIE

    Gilly: I saw that you typed eminem as IEI. Is this the general consensus of his type? He seems a lot more EIE to me but thats prob just cuz i want him to be my identical :tongue:
    what about him strikes you as IEI?

    You might remember Lightning Crashes from about 15 years ago. Here's a live version with Adam Duritz of Counting Crows (probably another IEI)
