murray!

I remember I got into some heavy stuff last year, and uhm, he [Murray] sat me down. And he was like ‘If I see you do that again, I’m walking off the tour.’ And that was kind of what you needed, you know. Having someone you care about. Cos if he walked off the tour, I’d be f- I would have no one.

LOTS of requests for this, finally fulfilled. This is me singing the bare-bones, original audio track Murray Gold used for MISSY’S THEME in series 9 of Doctor Who. He wrote a lovely little lullaby, which I recorded a capella, and then he reversed it for the final track. (The pauses indicate where I was singing along with a metronome.) There are a lot of rather grand conspiracy theories about what the reversed lyrics actually were, but these are the real deal!

MISSY’S THEME (ORIG LYRICS, MURRAY GOLD) 

Sing the days of love

Softly lay me down

Tenderly the night will come

In your sweet embrace

Sing the days of love

Softly lay me down

Tenderly the night will come

Gently lay me down

Harper gov’t appoints another oil and mining exec to NEB
The game is "rigged," critics say and the National Energy Board is now a "pipeline approval" machine.

The game is “rigged,” critics say and the National Energy Board is now a “pipeline approval” machine.

The Harper government’s appointment this week of a Calgary resource development executive to the National Energy Board (NEB) has federal opposition parties decrying his background as a Conservative Party volunteer, and the overall pro-pipeline agenda of the federal government.

On Tuesday, Conservative Natural Resources Minister Greg Rickford appointed Calgary engineering PhD Murray Lytle. “Dr. Lytle brings many years of experience in the oil, gas and mining fields and will prove to be a valuable asset for the National Energy Board as it continues to fulfill its mandate to ensure the safety and security of Canadians and the environment,” said Rickford in a statement.

Half of the board’s 12 members are now oil and gas professionals, and all but one were appointed by the Harper government since 2006.

Ben! Ben Bass and Missy again. I didn’t get to work with Missy a lot throughout the season. Because I had so much time with her last season, we developed such a great friendship that I missed working with her. It was just a little sacrifice to be able to work with everybody else. I had to miss working with my bud! Ben, I wish I could have had more scenes with him. We had a few or I was in the room while he was doing his thing. But him and I, our characters never got to do much. There is one scene, like the third to last episode, he and I got to work on and I love watching him work. I love watching his process and he is such a sweet man. I wish I had more scenes with Ben because I learned a lot within the times I got to work with him.
