A few weeks ago I met a man who kept saying 'music is for the soul' while the band played. I knew what he meant and I wasn't really sure at the same time. For now I'm going to interpret it as a simple expression of the magic medicinal powers of music to transform the ugly truths of pain, heartache and anger into a force that soothes, consoles and uplifts. Gold's got nothing on that kind of alchemy. Music is for the soul. Music is for the soul.

There's a few items of note from the artists:

Charlie Bobus, founder of Inspirator International, is hoping to transform some of his album sales into a poetry lounge and youth Centre in Jamaica. You can help him out here.

Eastborough is trying to transform online votes into a spot on the Late Show. You can help her out here.

In case you missed it the 510 was transformed back to the Spadina Bus a little while ago:
