The Script’s fourth album, No Sound Without Silence, is the sound of a band firing on all cylinders and channeling the momentum of their last, rocket-powered campaign. The trio of songwriters had so many ideas while touring last year, they were busting out of the specially built mobile recording studio they’d taken with them on the tour bus. They finished touring #3 at the end of last year, took a scant couple of weeks off, then quickly re-entered their studios in London and Dublin to begin work on the highly anticipated No Sound Without Silence.
17-year old Lorde must be having a blast. She has been sitting high atop international music charts, won Grammy awards and is now involved with one of the biggest movie productions of the year – Mockingjay Part 1 from the Hunger Games trilogy.
If you think it sounds kind of dark and brooding — She confirms the inspiration in an interview with a LA radio station:
“I wrote the song specifically for the movie, she said. “I reread the books, and I just wanted to tap into everything that Katniss is feeling in that film and … the crazy stuff that goes on. I just wanted to make something kind of dark and haunting.”
I watched a video of some guy folding shirts in less than 2 seconds so I decided to give it a try.
We had just the most amazing summer ever, right? Well don’t cry for me Cadborosaurus, because the fall is just as stellar for getting out to play in Victoria.
I once made a promise to myself that I would try to discover ALL the parks in Victoria with my kids. That’s a BIG promise. We have a lot of parks, playgrounds, bogs, hiking trails in Victoria. A lot.
It’s especially awesome when you head to one of your favourite parks and find that it’s been completely renovated with all-new playground equipment.

We had a chance to tour Our Place on Pandora recently. We were amazed at the building itself and how amazingly clean it is. We met a couple of volunteers who pride themselves in keeping this haven for the homeless in tip top shape. They even clean the showers after every use. A famous quote comes to mind by Samuel Johnson. “A decent provision for the poor is the true test of civilization”

Another quick check-in with the miracle of living on Vancouver Island…with these dolphins.
These 100 or so Pacific White-sided dolphins were playing in the wake of these boats not too far away from the Inner Harbour.
Thanks to Victoria Explorer for posting the video!
Went out running yesterday around Elk like and passed a women and her dog and thought “wow, she looks exactly like her pup”. It happens sometime, where owners look like their pets and we think it may be unconcious…or maybe the same diet or lifestyle? lol. How about dogs that look like other things?
I just love this song. Here’s the video for Ingrid Michaelson’s – Girls Chase Boys. She has a new album called Light’s Out.
The video is a tribute to Robert Plant’s — Simply Irresistible — remember that one from your MuchMusic video-watching days?
