Chasing Content – September 2010

It’s always nice to look back at the trails we have taken to get to where we are today.

That is why at the start of every month, I dig through the archives to unearth some of the best posts from last year at this time.

You can read all of the posts from last September or just these favourites.

Know Your History: 16 Bars – Know Your History is a monthly radio segment I produce for DOPEfm. This episode serves as a comprehensive guide to the art of 16 bar raps. You will learn how to count bars, why they are important, and how they fit into the culture of hip-hop. You can read the transcript, stream the podcast, or download the show for free.

I Learned Something From a Comic Again – Here’s the answer to a pressing question that had baffled me for years, “How come boys have buttons on one side and girls have buttons on the other side?”

Water Refill Stations – They really should have these things all over the place.  I know I always bring a water bottle with me but there often isn’t any place to fill it up. There really should be.

Take Back The Night – I went to this event for the first time last year and I felt guilty for being a man. I know I shouldn’t have felt that way, but it was hard to hear about the harmful, hateful, and selfish things some people can do to the women in our society. I plan on going again this year to be supportive of the women who should never have to put up with this.

Thanks for Chasing Content with me.
