Let’s Go Back to February 2008

Chasing ContentAt the start of every month, I take a moment to look back at what I wrote last year at this time. This serves as a “Best-of” list and helps highlight great pieces from the archive.

I’ve missed a few months of doing this, case in point is February 2008.

Let’s fix that omission right now!

You can read all of the posts I wrote seven years ago this month . . .

or just these highlights!

Need Something to Blame, Why Not Hip-Hop?

I went to a conference where one of the speakers blamed the erosion of values on “Chuck E. Cheese” and “hip-hop culture.” Those were his exact words. I’m glad we finally pinned down this problem. Now we can do something about it. Did you get the sarcasm there?

This kind of ignorant thinking really infuriates me. Both Chuck E. Cheese and hip-hop music have great things to offer. I hate my culture being used as a scapegoat all the time. It needs to stop.

The Third World is Right Here

This is not a metaphor either. We have people living in this very province who live in Third World conditions. It’s hard to believe that this could happen in the rich and abundant country we live in. This is something we should be rallying behind. Let’s do something!

Be Happy With the Little Things

It’s a hard thing to do when we see everyone around us having things we don’t have. It’s the human condition to want more. But perhaps, we should be content with what we have and appreciate all of the little things more. Rest in Peace, Lucas Tait!

A Brief History of Hip-Hop

I did this series before I started working in radio. It’s a nice little series. You should check it out!
