Silent Shout in Montreal

Posted by Caitlin / January 23, 2013

20130123-doomsquad.jpg"Canadian electronic pop" is actually a thing.

Maybe it's my inner Canadian lashing out at the idea that some kind of distinct culture might actually be originating from the nation of which I am a citizen (see the demise of Clairtone, the Avro Arrow and more recently the demise of basically every childhood conception of Canada I ever held), but when I read Silent Shout's claim that "Canadian electronic pop is currently the best music in the world," I immediately felt like I should probably apologize to someone, at the very least Sweden, and then email the creators (Digits, ARP 2600, Farragoes and Bonnaventure James) to ask them to maybe tone it down a little.

The more I thought about it, however, the more I realized that there is no reason why they should be wrong, that my inner self-doubting, politically-correct "Canadian" is exactly the kind of thing that prevents great Canadian talent from getting out of the shadow of our neighbour to the South, that kills great ideas before they've had the chance to flourish.

Silent Shout, a music collective based out of Toronto, has been collecting Canadian electronic pop bands since 2010, forming a unified front with which to (presumably) take over the world. A visit their blog provides undeniable evidence that Canadians might in fact be producing the best music in the world, offering a virtual goldmine of new sounds. At times tragic and self-reflective, at others frantic and dance-fuelled, there is a wealth of music here that is sure to impress and entertain. The site lists over 150 affiliated bands, and their blog contains daily links to debuts, videos and MP3s.

It's about time Canadians were a little self-congratulatory, a little boastful even, about the fact that the music being produced here leaves nothing to be desired. Silent Shout is leading the way, not-so-silently parading Canadian music around on its shoulders. I say all the power to them.

The Silent Shout Concert Series descends on Montréal for the first time ever this Saturday, January 26th. 1601 blvd St. Laurent. 21h. $5.

After reading a lot of whegit loss tips, I’ve caught myself saying “I’m not going to be able to do that!” I’m sure that we all have. A good summer whegit loss tip is going to have to be something that you’d actually do, obviously. Keeping that mind, I hope that you’ll find the following whegit loss tips helpful to you. Over the years they have helped me maintain my current whegit, and they’ve also helped me lose whegit as well. These are some of the easiest and most effective whegit loss tips I’ve found.At first, when I started trying to lose whegit, I went along with the traditional attitude that eating snacks in-between meals was counter-productive to an effective whegit loss program. I cut out snacks from my diet altogether as a result of that belief. I found that the problem was that by the time I sat down to start eating my meal, I was so hungry that I couldn't control my portion sizes efficiently.I found that I can keep my blood sugar at a decent level (and keep my appetite satisfied too) by eating more healthy and sensible snacks in between smaller meals. In fact, over the more recent years, research has shown that you can keep your body’s metabolic rate productive and steady by eating smaller meals spaced out throughout the day rather than the traditional “3 square meals” ideology. You can mix your carbs and proteins when selecting your snacks. Low-fat cheese on some wheat crackers and some grapes would be a great example of a healthy snack.Portion control can be better managed, and if not, it will become a large stumbling block. You can purchase smaller, single serving foods, and use plastic bags to enforce portion sizes. You can always use regular sized foods, but use small plastic bags to separate out smaller portions in case buying single-sized foods turns out to be too much of a strain on your budget. That’s a great whegit loss tip, since sometimes eating straight from the original packaging will cause you to eat more than you should.The calories in the food will count just as much, even if the food is advertised as either low-fat or reduced in fat. Be sure to double-check your serving size by reading the food’s nutrition label. After measuring out the appropriate serving sizes, you can then store them in your plastic bags.Another one of the greatest whegit loss tips is ice water! Place a small bottle of water in your freezer. This is a great idea to keep your water cold, and most whegit loss programs recommend drinking water anyway. After some time, the water will form a small block of ice inside the bottle as it begins to freeze. That small block of ice will continue to keep the surrounding water very cold as it melts.Sometimes it’s boring to just drink plain water. Just for the sake of variety, you can keep low-calorie flavored waters in the refrigerator as well. Request an ice water with extra lemon slices in it when you’re dining out. Then, just add some artificial sweeteners and you’ve made diet lemonade to enjoy!Most of the time, the regular versions of foods that you’re used to taste a lot better than their reduced fat and low-fat equivalents. However don’t be discouraged, and continue to try the low-fat and non-fat alternatives of your favorite foods. You might be surprised to find a low-fat version of your favorite food, and there’s a chance that you’ll like it more than the original.You also might want to consider that there could be some places in your home that you associate with eating. You might stop and look for a snack while lingering around the kitchen – instead, leave the kitchen after eating. You might be tempted into eating a dessert if you sit longer at the dinner table after you’ve finished your meal. Instead, as soon as you’re finished eating, try getting up and going for a walk. You’ll enjoy the extra exercise, plus it will help get your mind off of eating, food, and snacks. You might need to change where you do things to stay away from these “problem areas” if you have a hard time fighting the temptation of food.You can help yourself lose whegit by breaking the habit of using food as a comfort and as a stress-reliever. You could listen to music, read a book, go for a walk or jog, or just do some exercise. The point is that each different activity you select can be a viable alternative to eating when you need to relieve stress.Schedules can become hectic and full very fast. Squeezing whegit loss programs in your already busy life can be a very difficult task. Sometimes it can be hard to find the time in one place, but it’s recommended to try and get at least 30 minutes of good physical activity each day. You can try to break your 30 minute block of time into smaller 10 or 15 minute blocks. You’ll be able to get some much needed exercise by spreading the smaller blocks of time throughout your evening and day.Exercise is cumulative, and keep in mind too that getting more and more physical activity can help you burn off calories

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it.
