So why do they call you The Shoegazer?

A look into the statistics of this blog indicate that many fans of shoegaze music wind up here, thinking they’re going to find news and mp3’s of great bands like Slowdive, Jesus & Mary Chain, Swervedriver and more.  Surely mentioning those band names will spruce up the google hits.  But the nickname is quite simple – in order to find money and other random items on the ground, one must look down – gaze at one’s shoes, if you will.  So you see, it’s really just a coincidence that I’m a big fan of bands like Lush, Moose, Adorable and My Bloody Valentine.

It seems, however, that there are other ways to look downward and find money.  Case in point – the individual below, spotted by The Shoegazer at a recent house party with more than $100 sticking out of the top of her dress.  You may notice that this is not a “FOUND” entry, which means that The Shoegazer recovered no actual cash.   These bills presumably remain with their source, who appeared to be having a great time.

got money? flaunt it!

    Well, BUT, duh, the inspiration for the nickname was your professional and personal interest in the music genre.
