Northern Touch (Canadian Classic)

"Yo, We notorious
Ain't nobody can't bang with us
Rascalz, Checkmate, Kardinal and Thrust
Choclair comin' down wit the Northern Touch
Yo, why you people wanna bang wit us?
Ain't nobody can't hang with us
Rascalz, Checkmate, Kardinal and Thrust
Choclair comin' down wit the Northern (ticka) Touch, baby

(Misfit of Rascalz)

Check the lingo we spread through out the atmosphere
So distinctive no other style comes near
So when you here, you got to peer over the legde
To get a glance to know who is the man with the talent
Rippin' the words like my body on the apparatus
Sky's the limit so we're bound to break through the strattus
With these rhymes that are classic
Forget the fazzle, the fashion
Step in some make on the microphone
Hey, yo world domination the base of the foundation
No time wasted
Fire walk, we trail blazing
Burn to the next destination
Flexing on this world exploration,
Teamed with the best in the nation
Yes, so who dat be?
Cause I'ma design fine rhymes at this salary
All the way from T. to the Van City, all stars
School boys treat you like a fantasy
Word up


Yes, yes, from the Northwest
Van City, T. O., uh
I like chillin', Monday night raw watching
Me and Dannio at the Skydome
When its in town my peoples know
I just be regular, so haters start dissing
But steady, reciting my lyrics up wit my, uh, in their mouth
They swallowing, talking `bout they need some oxygen
People need to know Choclair don't move in no slow mo
In doing me like a gyne-colo-gist
Dollars in business
Now how you gonna feel when you see the 6, triple O,
Wheels start to peel
Swab dawg appeal
Y'all know the deal
If you don't ask my man
Why dawg, he'll tell you to circle round the spot
T-dot, represent like my Northwest connects, Rascalz
They make the cash flows indeed
I down the Goldschlager, big seed puffed up
Choclair with the...

Yo, we notorious
Ain't nobody can't bang with us
Rascalz, Checkmate, Kardinal and Thrust
Choclair comin' down wit the Northern Touch
Why you people wanna bang wit us?
Ain't nobody can't hang with us
Rascalz, Checkmate, Kardinal and Thrust
Choclair comin' down wit the Northern (ticka) Touch


Yea, yea, yea
I'm runnin' with these villianous cats, sir
Flod the dock while kickin' it all about rapture
You heard of killer cats like this
Smooth, dominate your sessions
Like o's get boxin' when I'm flexing
Dilligent, running up on ya
So what you thinking?
I got rhymes like politicians steady politicing
Stick a move, I don't age, yo I'm improve
Been maximizing my time like
We fighting in the spotlight
'Aight then
You want a battle you must be tripping
Whack niggas should be served an ass whipping
We fortify your life with five figgas
____ season over land
Got people in Jamaica, Trini and London, Australia
I bring the soul to the front like my alias
Curb style, we'll make your nigger buck wild
Cold flippin', sad trip then I dip and thats it


Notorious superstar
Just to see you smile and enjoy yourself
I know you up in here to release your delf
So I'm fronting with the loop, whoever's got the wealth
Where you?
I'm in the V I, undetected like a stealth
Girl you add a shape, simply you add a figure
Can I zoom zoom, like a shot you pull the trigger
Whatever you've seen hunny I'll show you something much bigger
When its said and done, you'll be like "ooh thats my n---a"
Started from scratch, baby blued eyed figure
Shes a gold digger
On to Hilfiger, got juice you wanna swigger
We even answer for them, 'cause we're that much bigger
A regular over style that you wanna represent, present
In otherwords I pay the rent
I'm the past to the present and the future
What ever suits ya, its all the same
this kid's got game

We notorious
Ain't nobody can't bang with us
Rascalz, Checkmate, Kardinal and Thrust
Choclair comin' down wit the Northern Touch
Why you people wanna bang wit us?
Ain't nobody can't hang with us
Rascalz, Checkmate, Kardinal and Thrust
Choclair comin' down wit the Northern Touch,
the Northern Touch baby"

- Rascalz "Northern Touch" from the album Cash Crop

Maybe I Should Use This Line

"Some women are beautiful because God put them together just right.

And some are beautiful because of what's on the inside;




Baby you've got it all."

- Detective "Fearless" from the television show Boomtown. (he's on the left)

A Heart is Fragile

"A heart is a fragile thing. That's why we protect them so vigorously, give them away so rarely, and why it means so much when we do. Some hearts are more fragile than others. Purer, somehow. Like crystal in a world of glass, even the way they shatter is beautiful."

- Narrator on Everwood

Happy in Love? Really?

“Love love love. Find me one single person who’s been happy long enough to be worth talking about, happy in love, I mean, that fake nest lined with steel wool they call love. Not very likely. If there is such a person, they must be blind, blinded by their terror of being alone, so blind they can’t see the blood pouring from their gaping wounds."

- Monique Proulx. The Heart is an Involuntary Muscle. translated by David Homel and Fred A. Reed. Douglas & McIntyre Ltd, 2003. pg 73

What a cynical way to look at love. I don't agree with this speaker's quote at all. I truly believe that I can find that kind of love that she seems to think does not exist.

Writing Expresses the Truth

"The unspoken contract that exists between the writer and reader—your promise to express the truth of how people act and talk through the medium of a made-up story."

- Stephen King. On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft. Scribiner: New York, 2000. pg 186

Fiction holds truth. I don't think many people actually think about that. Writers try to express a truth with their writing and good writing usually has a lot to offer.

Moving On

"The only thing worse than feeling you can't move on, is the moment you realize you can."

- Tommy from the television series Instant Star

I completely identify with this sentiment. I'm going through this exact thing right now, which you would know if you read my main blog Silent Cacophony or if you follow me on Twitter. 

It's a scary thought, thinking you can't move on, and even scarier when you realize you can.

It's funny how everything that has been happening lately, even watching a random episode of this show, which I normally don't watch, ends up speaking to me.

It's like it's just the time for me to move on and the world is letting me know.

Santa Prepares Us for Disillusionment

Doctor Weekes: "Most children in America are subjected to a particular from of indoctrination from their earliest years, in which they are repeated reinforced in their belief of a powerful figure who does not actually exist. However, evidence is given to them to support that belief by stories to make the child believe that the whole world believes in this particular mythic figure."

Step: "You're saying Stevie's problems are because we taught him to believe in Santa Claus?"

Doctor Weekes: "On the contrary, I think Santa Claus is, by and large, quite beneficial. When the child is finally allowed or forced to recognize the non-existence of Santa Claus, then the child is able to go through the vital intellectual process of reconstructing reality in light of new evidence, complete with back-forming new stories to account for past events. This prepares the child for many other disillusionments and gives her vital and well-supported experience is maintaining her grip on reality independent of the stories told to he at any given time."

Step: "So Santa Claus is good."

Doctor Weekes: "Santa Claus is not usually maladaptive and can be turned to a good end. I doubt many parents have that in mind when they tell them the ludicrous chimney story."

Step: "No I imagine not."

Filler Friends

David: "Everyone has friends from high school."

Claire: "No they don't. Maybe they have people they talk to or even do things with but they're not really friends. They're just filler."

(Everyone in the room just looks at her)

Claire: "What? It's true."

Stories Can Be Expressed Different Ways

"Stories do not need to be written to be told. Stories can be expressed any way human beings can communicate."
