It’s time for another round-up of posts. We do this at the start of every month in a little feature called Chasing Content. So, please take a moment and explore what was happening here on Silent Cacophony last year at this time.

Read all of the posts from September 2011

or just these cool ones. . .

Use Lego to Teach Science – I love using Lego to teach my Grade 4 units on Pulleys and Gears. It is a quick, easy, and relatively inexpensive way to have students experimenting and building simple machines for a variety of real-world purposes.

On the Red Carpet at the Stylus DJ Awards – It was hectic being on the red carpet for an award show, but I still managed to get some great interviews from hip-hop artists, singers, comedians, and television stars.

Everyday People Interview – Here’s an exclusive interview I did with Hamilton hip-hop group, Everyday People. You can read it, stream it, or download it for free.

Stupid Cell Phone – Having a cell phone comes in handy some times. I thought having one with me this day would help me win a radio contest but my phone had other plans.

Skateboarding, Batman, and Photoshop – I so wanted this picture to be real. It’s hard to know what is authentic these days with pictures being so easy to doctor. Oh well, it’s still a cool shot.

Not Impressed with Digital TV – And I’m still not. I wish we could go back to analogue. Sure the signal was a little fuzzy at times but I actually did get more channels back then. Some days I can’t even tune in certain channels at all now. But I am watching less TV these days, maybe that’s a good thing.

Thanks for Chasing Content with me!
