Chasing Content – The Best of Last October

Chasing Content OctoberIt’s hard to believe that it is October already.

Time is absolutely flying by, as are the blog posts. Let’s not let them get lost in the archives.

If you find something that speaks to you here, please share it on Facebook, Twitter, or any of the other places you hang out online.

You can read all of the posts from October 2014,

or just these personal favs . . .

Trail Run to Albion Falls

This is one of my favourite places to visit. I hadn’t been there in years, so it was really nice to see that nothing has changed. It is still beautiful and captivating.

Classroom Newsletter – Comic Strip Style

Last year, I made the communication between home and school a bit more fun. Instead of prose newsletters, I sent home ones in comic strip form. I found that they were eagerly anticipated and read. Regular newsletters are often just trashed. Why not give it a try?

Barracks Skatepark in London, ON.

This is a great skatepark with many unique features and ramps. It also has a bowl. I highly recommend visiting this park for a great skateboard session.

Is the new Spider-Man truly Superior?

He might not be, but the story is such a great read. And it keeps the possibility of Peter Parker returning to don the costume once again. Until he does though, I am in rapt attention with this series.

Thanks for Chasing Content with me!

We do this every month to look back at the month that was last year. It let’s us all reflect on those times and helps make sure that great posts don’t get buried in the archives.

Delaware Lions Skatepark

Delaware Skatepark

The Delaware Lions Club has been working hard to bring a skatepark to the community for over a year now. This weekend, they officially opening the park.

Ribbon Cutting

The mayor, members of parliament, the local hockey team, the fire department, and plenty of visitors were on hand to witness the grand opening ceremonies.

Double Quarter-Pipe

The park is really nice. It has a double quarter-pipe with a small spine between them.

Launch Ramp

There are two launch ramps. This one has no coping at the top.

Rail and box

And it leads to a rail and a box to do some grinds on.

Lions Skatpark Official Opening

It was a great morning of skating, free food, and community involvement.

Pool Ledge Coping

This ledge has pool-styled coping that isn’t found in a lot of skateparks. It’s a unique feature.


This pyramid is a strange combination. It is close to a China Gap but is filled in with a slight curve in the middle.


The other launch ramp is a quarter-pipe and leads towards . . .

Getting Air

a set of stairs and another down slope.

London Skateboard Co-op

Members of the London Skateboard Co-op team were on hand to perform a variety of tricks at this new park.

Delaware Skatepark is located at Lions Park just across the street from Delaware Central Public School.

Hip-Hop in the Brydges Highlights

Community Centre

This past Saturday, we transformed Caradoc Community Centre into a spectacular concert hall for Hip-Hop in the Brydges.

Hip-Hop in the Brydges FINAL POSTER

It was a special fundraising concert for the local Lions Club and Optimist Club of Mount Brydges.

Setting Up

We had three DJs and a huge line-up of rappers and performers on the bill.


Sankdafied kicked off the night with a stellar set of his new material.


The Typewriters put on an amazing performance, as always.


Up next, Kleneslate took the stage. He was a last minute addition to the program but blessed us all with a great set.

Three DJs

Three DJs rocking three sets of turntables at the same time. It was absolutely incredible. We were basically a DJ band.

DJ Hullewud is on the right, DJ Arctic is on the left, and I was set up on stage just behind him.

This was the highlight of the night for me. I couldn’t believe how cool it was to be rocking with these amazing deejays.

Arctic The Destroya

DJ Arctic took a moment to step out from behind the turntables and show his versatility. He kicked some of his fast-paced rhymes and entertained the crowd.

Bannock and Sunshyne

Sunshyne rocked a great set with her son, Bannock. I somehow managed not to get a pic of Lyrical Mind or Dabs. Not sure how I missed that, but I had a lot to do that night.

There was a photographer there. I hope to share his images here soon.


Es travelled the farthest to get to this gig. He hails from Mississauga.

Sharky and Chase March

Here I am, backing up Sharky the Great!

The View from My Decks

I had such an amazing view from behind the turntables all night.


Traffimatics jumped off stage to get the all-ages crowd hyped!

It was a great night and I loved every minute of my first ever event as a promoter.

Now Booking Shows

I would love to bring all-ages clean hip-hop events to other communities. If you are interested in having a show like this in your town, please contact me.

The Great Machine Rules the City

Ex Machina Vol 7

Ex Machina: Volume 7 – Ex Cathedra

The mayor of New York is an ex-superhero. He fights the good fight in politics now instead of being a vigilante. He still has his powers though and is able to communicate with machines. Unfortunately for him, someone has figured out how to reverse the lines of communication. Now, they will try to use him as a pawn. Could the Great Machine become a machine for someone else? No spoilers here. All I will say is that it is a good chapter of this on-going series.

Ex Machina Vol 8

Ex Machina: Volume 8 – Dirty Tricks

The first story in this collection is a stand-alone that has a long-deceased ancient civilization trying to communicate with the mayor. It’s a great story that deals with racism in our modern age. I loved it.

After that, we have a five issue arc that focuses on a mysterious woman who seems to have her own political agenda and tries to take a page from The Great Machine’s history.

Ex Machina Vol 9

Ex Machina: Volume 9 – Ring Out The Old

This issue is priceless. The mayor is getting his own graphic novel biography and it stars the writer of this series, Brian K. Vaughan. He pokes fun at the convention of comics and a few fellow creators.


I also love that one of the characters mistakes him for Brian Michael Bendis. It’s hilarious.

Ex Machina Vol 10

Ex Machina: Volume 10 – Term Limits

The saga of The Great Machine comes to an epic conclusion in this volume. I really wasn’t expecting that.

I don’t think the mayor was expecting to put his old costume on again either. It turns out though, that The Great Machine was needed for one final mission. It feels a little too final though. Mayor Hundred completely abandons the costumed hero game and continues to set his sights on the political realm.

I would love to know what happens next, but this is the final story of this graphic novel series. It’s too bad too, it was a great read.

We Are Called to Rise

We Are Called to Rise

We Are Called to Rise by Laura McBride

Avis knows her marriage is in a bit of a slump, but she is caught completely off guard when her husband admits to an affair and declares that he is moving out.

Meanwhile, an elementary school student starts an assignment in class that has him becoming penpals with a soldier overseas. He has a few issues with his home life as well.

The soldier also goes through some major turmoil, and somehow all three lives become intertwined.

I didn’t know what to expect from this novel but I was familiar with the poem for which it was based.

We never know how high we are
Till we are called to rise;
And then, if we are true to plan,
Our statures touch the skies

– Emily Dickinson

The poem served as the thesis to the novel. Each character was able to rise above the less-than-ideal situations they found themselves in, and even find a happy ending. I really enjoyed this novel and I hope you will too.

The 2003 Power Blackout Explained


Ex Machina: Volume 6 – Power Down

This series is absolutely incredible. I read the first five volumes a while back and decided to binge read the next five, since they were sitting on the library shelf practically begging me to.

The story revolves around a former super-hero. He has the ability to communicate with machines. He can hear them all the time and even give them commands. He’s the world’s only costumed super-hero and goes by the name of The Great Machine.

During the September 11th attacks, he was able to thwart the terrorists and prevent the second tower from falling. He was championed as a hero, but soon hung up his wings to move into politics. Now, he fights for his city in a different way, as the mayor of New York City.

This story this time around deals with the 2003 blackout and it wasn’t as simple as we were lead to believe. Unfortunately for our hero, this blackout also affected his powers.

The 2003 Power-Blackout wasn’t fully explained in this issue, but an interesting character popped up who just might have had something to do with it, however inadvertently.

I love the what-if style of this story. It feels so believable, like an alternate version of what we could be living right now. The writing and art is also incredible. I can’t wait to read the next issue and see just where this story arc takes us.

Whovians and Companions Together for One Night

Fan Expo Toronto is a huge comic book, science fiction, gaming, anime, and horror convention that happens every year.

This year was special because the Women of Doctor Who were  featured guests at the function.

Are You My Mummy

I took my kids and we all dressed up as characters from the TV show. I cosplayed the 9th Doctor (Christopher Eccleston) and my son dressed up as the Empty Child (Are You My Mummy?)

We bumped into a lot of people who were creeped out by his portrayal of the character. If you haven’t seen that episode, it was a very dark and scary.

An Evening with the Companions

We had a lot of fun looking at all of the Doctor Who merchandise and vendors, seeing fellow Whovians in great costumes, and attending the special panel, An Evening With the Companions. 

Karen and Jenna

Karen Gillan (Amy Pond) and Jenna Coleman (Clara Oswald) took questions from the audience and told great stories about their time working on Doctor Who. My kids even got to interact with them by asking them a question.

It was a great day and I am glad that Fan Expo paid tribute to our beloved fandom two years in a row.

Here are the highlights from last year . . .

Doctor Who at Fan Expo 2014

Daredevil Secrets from Fan Expo Toronto

I love going to FanExpo in Toronto every year. It’s pretty much the last event of the summer and is always a great way to wrap up the season.

Daredevil Hat Balck

I was really hoping to find a Daredevil baseball cap this year. I’ve wanted a DD hat for my collection for years. I was very happy to see this one at the convention. I bought it right away.

DD Sketch Off Duel

I was also really excited to see Alex Maleev in this sketch-off duel.

He talked about how he kicks everyone out of the house when he works. He said that his place is small and that he likes to work on the floor. I have never heard another artist say that before.

It was also surprising to hear that he never read comic books in his youth. The first time he even saw a comic was when he came to the United States in the 1990s.

He managed to get a job after only being here for two months. Apparently, he threatened to jump out the window if they didn’t hire him.

He was incredible to listen to during this panel. He took a number of questions from the audience as he worked on the challenge piece. Both artists needed to draw Doctor Doom.

Dale Keown is a penciller but Alex Maleev is also, an inker and painter. He managed to ink his drawing in the short forty minutes the two artists had to work.

Alex Maleev Sketch

This is Alex Maleev’s finished piece. They raffled it off, but I was not fortunate enough to win it.

I knew that I wouldn’t be able to attend the autograph signing session he had later in the day because it conflicted with the Doctor Who panel I was going to. I really wanted his autograph though.

Alex Maleev Autograph

My son approached Alex as soon as the panel was done and he asked him to sign my hat.

I couldn’t believe it. There were only two things I wanted to get at Fan Expo this year; a Daredevil hat and an autograph from Alex Maleev. I got them both in one item. How crazy is that?

Daredevil Hat Red

I saw this red hat and bought it too. I don’t ever want to wear the signed one now. It’s just too awesome.

Daredevil Hats

I need a bigger shelving unit for my collection now.

Daredevil HeroClix

I also bought this little HeroClix guy.

FanExpo was a lot of fun this year. I’ll post about the Doctor Who Adventures we had as well.

Stay tuned to Silent Cacophony for more!

Latest Graphic Novel Reads

Spider-Man - Matters of Life and Death

The Amazing Spider-Man: Matters of Life and Death

I haven’t been reading Spider-Man comics in the correct order. It’s not because I didn’t want to; it’s because I get whatever is available at the public library at the time.

This one takes place slightly before the last one I reviewed here. In this story, Spider-Man has to battle an army of Spider-Slayers who want to destroy everything J. Jonah Jameson holds dear. Spider-Man defeats them, but at quite the cost.

A new Venom is also introduced in this volume and he’s awesome. And after the main story, Spider-Man has to content with a hostage situation with a very cold and calculated killer. To close off the book, there are a few bonus Fantastic Four stories to read as well.

Ender's Game - War of Gifts

Ender’s Game – War of Gifts

Ender’s Game is an amazing novel that has spanned dozens of sequels, prequels, comics, and even a feature film. This latest addition to the cannon features four stories, one of which is has never been told before.

The first story shows what Valentine had to put up with in middle school while her younger brother was off at battle school. Her older brother made a suggestion for her that set them both on the path to becoming influential writers online. It’s a nice origin story of characters that we have come to know in the original series.

The title story revolves around another child at battle school and a internal battle about the right of religious practice.  Overall, this is a nice companion piece to the Enderverse saga.

Star Wars - Shadow of Yavin

Star Wars – In the Shadow of Yavin

This graphic novel features the original characters of the films we all fell in love with as children. The story takes place right after Episode IV and continues the events that led up to Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back.

The Rebel Alliance is looking for a safe base of operations. They have already lost several bases and are worried that there is an Empire spy in their midst. That’s why Princess Leia sets off on a secret mission to establish a new one.

The story shed some light for me on the Hoth Base seen in The Empire Strikes Back. It makes sense that they are on such an inhospitable planet. They were being hunted mercilessly and had to constantly be on guard.

This is an on-going series that is a reboot of sorts. Apparently, they are not going to be bound by what happened in the original trilogy. It’s a great idea that has worked in the animated series, The Clone Wars, bridging the latest trilogy of films. As such, this series could be quite good. I look forward to reading more.

Summer’s Gone (It Goes By Quicker Every Year)

“Summer’s gone . . . a summer song,
You’ve wasted every day”

– Summer by Buffalo Tom

This time of year, I always listen to this song and start to wonder if I really did waste every day.

Of course, I worked this summer. A lot. I couldn’t just have lazy, do nothing, days. I had a few of those though. Wish I could have had more.

I went skateboarding a bunch of times, went to the beach several times, did a lot of live shows and performances, did some community theatre, and had a pretty good time overall.

I guess I can’t really complain.

This fall has a lot of great things on the horizon. Really looking forward to it all.

Thanks for sharing the journey with me here on Silent Cacophony and everywhere online.

Chasing Content – Is it September Already?

Chasing ContentChasing Content is a monthly feature here on Silent Cacophony.

This is how it works, at the start of each month I look back at the blog entries I posted the previous year in that month and highlight some of my favourites. This gives us a chance to dig through the old posts and unearth some gems that might otherwise get buried in the archives.

It’s now time for the September 2014 edition.

Read all of the posts from Last September . . .

or just these personal favourites.

Reading Salad 

A great lesson that teaches students that they need to think while they read. It uses a hands-on and is quite visual. It is simply brilliant and a great way to start off the school year.

Hula-Hoops on the First Day of School

Still my favourite activity to kick off the school year. Click through and you’ll see why. It’s a bit unconventional but a lot of fun.

The New Spider-Man, Miles Morales

I really enjoyed this comic book series and would love to see this version of Spider-Man on the big screen one day. I highly recommend you read it.

Daredevil Autographs

I collected a few more autographs last year at Fan Expo. I’m really excited about going back to the event this weekend. Alex Maleev is going to be there this year. I would so love to get his autograph. I probably won’t be able to though since he is doing a signing at the same time at the Doctor Who panel. :(

Doctor Who at Fan Expo

Last year was so much fun.  This year, the ladies of Doctor Who will be on hand. I can’t wait to see Karen Gillan and Jenna Coleman. Should be a lot of fun!

First Day of School Lesson Plan

I’ve used a variation of this plan every year for the past several years and it has never failed. It’s due for a tweaking though. I never just re-use units or lesson. I always strive to improve and build upon past successes.

Thanks for Chasing Content with me

It’s always nice to look back and see what was. Hopefully this month will be just as good as it was last year.

Kitchener Aud Skatepark

Kitchener Aud Skatepark

This skatepark is known affectionately as The Aud.


Located outside of The Kitchener Auditorium, it is a nice place for both the experienced skateboarder and the novice.


Here is a double-layered box,


some grind rails and ledges,

Hill Ledge

and a double camel hump. It’s a little hard to see the contour of it in this photo, but it is a nice obstacle to skate. And one that I have never seen elsewhere.

Launch Ramp with Rail

Here is the launch ramp with a rail to slide or grind.


This pyramid has metal grind bars on it that are very nice for the beginner to experiment with.


This quarter-pipe is a little steep. It reminds me of the Widow Maker at Beasley in Hamilton.

More Skatepark Tours

Lions Lake Trail Run

Lions Lake Trail

I collect trails. I am always on the lookout for a new spot to explore. My latest adventure was at Lions Lake Trail in Floradale, Ontario.

Lions Lake Trail Shore

The parking lot brings you right to the shore

Woolwich Dam

and the Woolwich Dam.

Lioins Lake Wooded Trail

The trail is only a few hundred meters further down.

Maple Syrup Farm

It cuts through a Maple Syrup Farm. You can see the blue lines that are used to collect sap from the trees. You can even veer off of the trail and walk toward the farm building to buy some.

Trails End

I keep running until I came to the end of the trail. It wasn’t as long as I had expected, or hoped for. Either that or I just didn’t take the best route.

Floradale Park Sign

So when I came to the road and saw this sign, I thought it would be a good idea to run to the park and explore some more of the local area.

Path Back to the Trail

Along the way, there were two entrances back to the Lions  Trail that I had left to go find Floradale Park. I probably should have taken one of them and kept running on the trail.


But I figured 2.5 kilometers down the road wasn’t that far. I had visions of a beautiful park ahead with more trails.

Woolwich Fire Department

I never found it. I ran on the road for way more than two and a half kilometers. I passed the firehouse and realized that I would have to run a fairly big loop on the road to get back to my starting point.

Woolwich Reservoir

I pretty much never run a route that doesn’t include a trail. That section today though was a little too short for me. I know I didn’t choose the best route and could probably run here again and have a different experience. Perhaps I will.

Woolwich Run Map

I love my phone app and all of the data it provides. As you can see, I ran 8.03 kilometers in 43 minutes with an average pace of 5:24 per kilometer. You can also see that there were several hills and changes in elevation along the route.

Want to see more of my trail collection?

Doon Skatium – Kitchener’s Mobile Skatepark

Doon Skatium

Kitchener has a mobile skatepark that it sets up in various neighbourhoods throughout the city. It is called “Doon Skatium”

Doon Box

They often set up shop outside of the Pioneer Park branch of the Public Library

Doon Rail

I love this rail! It is great for beginners, since you can skate right on to it without having to olley.

Doon Fun Box

They have an array of ramps that include a fun box, quarter-pipes,

Doon Launch Ramp

a launch ramp, and more. Apparently, they have more ramps in the trailer that they can set up depending on the crowd any particular night.

Doon Mobile Skatepark

Here’s an idea of what the whole mobile park looks like when it is set up. Apparently, there were more ramps that they could have brought out as well.

More Skatepark Tours

Ain’t Nothing Like the Old School (Commodore 64)

Commodore 64

I had the urge to dig out my old Commodore 64 and play some old school video games.

Computer not Working

When I turned it on though, I couldn’t get any of the games to load up. I knew what the problem was so . . .

Fixed Disk Drive

I took apart the disk drive and fixed the door lock mechanism. It was quite easy. All I had to do was slide a pin back into place.

Bubble Bobble

And I was playing my all-time favourite video game, Bubble Bobble once again.

Burger Time

I love these old school games. Anyone remember Burger Time?

What’s your favourite Commodore 64 game?

Beasley Skatepark – Hamilton


Beasley is the first permanent outdoor skateboard park that I had ever seen.

Beasley Bowl

It’s the oldest skatepark on the entire Eastern Seaboard. People have been coming here since the mid 1980s to skate.

Bottom of the Bowl Addition'

I skated here a lot when I was a kid and it wasn’t until many years later that parks like this became commonplace.

When I skated here as a teenager, this ramp didn’t even exist. Skaters have been maintaining and improving the park for years now.

Bowl Addition

This ramp is a new addition as well. It’s only about five years old.

piano ledge

I love the look and feel of this park.


It was nice to get back here after all these years and enjoy a skate on a very familiar park.

quarter pipe

This is the famous Widow Maker quarter-pipe.


a standard rail,

start ramp

and the launch ramp.

This weekend, they are running their 23rd Annual Sk8 Jam.

Beasley 23

It’s always a lot of fun. Hope to see you there!
