Chasing Content – February 2010

The chase is on!

It’s time to hunt down that elusive content that tries to leave us in the dust and tuck away into the archives.

We do this at the start of each and every month here at Silent Cacophony and highlight the best posts of the previous year at this time.

You can read all of the posts from last February or just these favourites of mine,

Some Trek is Better Than No Trek – There were some problems with the Star Trek reboot but it’s nice to have a brand new movie franchise. New Star Trek adventures had been conspicuously absent for too long.

Amazing Beauty and Grace on The Ice – I was completely blown away by the performances of Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir in the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. This ice dancing pair truly deserved to win the Gold Medals. I could watch them skate all day long. Simply amazing!

Castles in the Snow – I had my first trip to Winterlude last year and had a great time. If you get a chance to go up to Ottawa this month, make sure you check out this three week Winter Celebration. If you can’t make it up there, you can always look at these amazing photos from last year’s event.

Olympic Medals (Up Close) – I had a chance to see the Olympic Medals up close when I visited the Royal Canadian Mint. I was surprised to learn all the detail that was put into each and every one of the medals.

Winterlude Graffiti – Graffiti art is one of the four elements of hip-hop culture. I was delighted to see it being represented at last year’s Winterlude in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

I had some good times last February. I really enjoyed watching the Olympics, going to Ottawa to experience Winterlude for the first time, and writing tons of blog posts. It will be hard for February 2011 to live up to last year, that’s for sure.

Thanks for Chasing Content with me. See you here tomorrow for Teaching Tip Tuesday!
