LU Masquerade W W W.20SOM E T H I N GSU D B U RY.C A
Event: Laurentian STA Annual Masquerade Dance When: January 31st, 2015 Where: Ernie Checkeris Theatre For the past three years, Laurentian University’s Student Theatre Association (STA) has hosted an annual masquerade dance. With over 200 tickets sold for this year’s ball, the masquerade didn’t disappoint! Tickets had been in high demand since they went on sale in November 2014, and students from all departments and programs dawned their best gown or suit (and mask) for the evening. Food and drinks were served all night long, and music played until the very end. It was a great way to beat the winter blues and have a blast with fellow LU students.
Join our team! Now looking for…
All funds raised from the masquerade support the Thorneloe Theatre community in a variety of ways, from organizing professional workshops and events, to helping fourth year students to go to Theatre Ontario in Toronto. The hard work and dedication of Thorneloe’s members paid off, and the STA couldn’t be happier with the event. With the success of this years masquerade, there is no doubt that next year’s will be bigger and better than ever. All in all, it was a great night out with theatrical flair; exactly what the STA was hoping for!

STITCH & STONE NEW TO THE DOWNTOWN CORE IS GABRIELLE ROY’S CHIC
AND ECLECTIC SHOP, STITCH AND STONE! WE MET WITH HER TO TALK ABOUT HER BUSINESS AND CONTEMPORARY FASHION. TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT STITCH AND STONE. We are a bohemian-chic inspired boutique featuring women’s clothing, jewelry and home décor, and proudly showcase many amazing Canadian designers. More than a little boutique, we capture a vibe you’ve been longing for! WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED? Our humble home base is at 76 Cedar Street. Shop online at stitchandstone.ca, or follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter! HOW LONG HAS YOUR BOUTIQUE BEEN IN BUSINESS? I started a pop up location in October 2014. It was a huge hit and gave me the courage to find a permanent home where I could create an atmosphere that I knew Sudbury would love. We just opened our new location February 5th, 2015! YOU DESCRIBE STITCH AND STONE’S STYLE AS “BOHO CHIC”. WHAT KIND OF CLOTHING AND ACCESSORIES DO YOU CARRY? Boho chic combines organic, colourful, folk-inspired pieces with simple and modern ones. I believe that I carry something for everyone, as my tag line reads, “A style for every story”. My customers range from 16 to 65+! It is important to me that my customers feel like themselves in their new purchases. I don’t believe that you have to wear revealing clothing to be sexy. If you feel great in what you are wearing, then you feel confident. And that is sexy! WE HEARD YOU RENOVATED! TELL US ABOUT THE NEW LOOK. It is cozy, welcoming, and like a little piece of home! With the great vibe of downtown and the amazing brick walls, it was just a matter of decorating. I didn’t do it alone; it took a small village to pull it all together. My dear friend Mr. Terry Vendetti helped turn it into a whole new level of awesome-ness! WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR MUST-HAVE ACCESSORIES FOR SPRING 2015? It’s a bit of a surprise, but a few hints: layering tanks, maxi dresses, cool rompers; think airy and flowy! Really beautiful accessory lines are coming…but those I will keep a secret! photo by: Amanda White Photography

Music W W W.20SO M E T H I N GSU D B U RY.C A
Jessica Sigurdson Musician of the Month
20SS: HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A VOLUNTEER MUSICIAN WITH THE SUDBURY SYMPHONY? JS: I have been a volunteer musician with the Symphony on and off for about 6 years. I was unable to play with the symphony while I was in University, as I was in Kingston! 20SS: WHAT IS YOUR FIRST MUSICAL MEMORY? JS: My first musical memory is my little keyboard I got from my parents. I didn’t know how to play piano as a child, so I spent most of my time hitting the demo buttons and listening to what they would do. 20SS: WHAT GOT YOU STARTED? JS: My grade 7/8 music teacher suggested I take music and join the senior band once I started highschool. It was so much fun!! 20SS: YOU PLAY THE CLARINET IN THE SUDBURY SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA, WHAT OTHER INSTRUMENTS DO YOU PLAY? JS: I play bass guitar and very basic guitar. I used to play around with a few other instruments when I was in highschool and college, but not so much anymore. When I first started out with the symphony I was playing bass clarinet. 20SS: WHO/WHAT ARE YOUR BIGGEST MUSICAL INFLUENCES? JS: This is a really hard question for me, sort of like asking who your favourite band is. There are so many! I don’t really have a specific piece or person who influences me per se, but certain styles definitely catch my attention. In the “Classical” world I have influences such as Berlioz and Mussorgsky - if you haven’t heard their music, you should, but I am also influenced a lot by classic rock music like the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, etc. 20SS: WHAT HAS YOUR EXPERIENCE BEEN LIKE WITH THE SYMPHONY? JS: It has certainly been a learning experience for me. When I first started out in college, it was my first serious gig that did not revolve around school and the ensembles we had there. It is a lot of fun to play in the symphony, but depending on the difficulty of the piece it can be pretty nerve wracking. The reward is great when you feel the positive vibes coming from the audience. They really love our stuff! 20SS: WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PIECE THAT YOU HAVE PERFORMED WITH THE SYMPHONY? JS: I would have to say that my favourite piece that we have performed so far would be Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Mussorgsky is one of my influences, and I am a huge fan of this work. I was ecstatic when I heard we would be playing it!

20SS: WHAT SKILLS/PERSONAL ATTRIBUTES ARE MOST IMPORTANT TO BEING A SUCCESSFUL MUSICIAN? JS: The skills that I find important are to be able to play well technically (meaning you can play and make few mistakes), and to play musically. Playing musically means you bring out the most of the music. You don’t just play what is written on the page, but make it really come to life by adding dynamics, dramatic pauses where it calls for, etc. Just like people do when they are speaking. It isn’t all monotone. I would say that for personal attributes, self-discipline is an important one because you need to be disciplined to practice, and to get the full benefits of your practice time. The skills of playing will generally come along with self-discipline as you train your body to do the movements needed to play. 20SS: WHEN YOU AREN’T PLAYING WITH THE SYMPHONY, DO YOU PERFORM ANYWHERE ELSE? JS: Last summer I played a little bit at the SRO’s open mic nights, which was a lot of fun! I was playing bass guitar and performing with my boyfriend, who plays guitar. I also played at Summerfest with the band The Stampeding Buffalo, and we plan on doing some more gigs and possibly recording sometime soon, which I look forward to.

STO C KS A N D B O N DS STOCKS Most of you have likely heard of someone owning ‘stocks’ or ‘shares’ in a company. While any company can have shareholders, when using the term people are most commonly referring to the common shares of what is referred to as a publicly traded company. Simply meaning anyone with money can purchase an ownership stake in that company through a Stock Exchange. (Think Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), or the NASDAQ). A shareholder of a company will participate in the profits of the company in the form of either dividends; which is simply the company flowing a portion of their profits directly through to the shareholders, or by having the value of that share increase. As you can imagine, investing in stocks can be a very lucrative undertaking. Someone who purchased one share of Apple back in 1998 would have paid approximately $1.50, while that same share today is worth nearly $130! That being said, as the ‘owner’ of a company, you also take on the risk of the value of that company diminishing or even going out of business thereby reducing the value of your investment to $0. “Ok,” you say, “this sounds pretty simple, but I’m not big on the idea of all that risk. What’s my other option?”
BONDS With less risk comes somewhat less reward, which is exactly the case when buying Bonds. When you buy a bond, you are basically loaning money to whomever it is that you bought the bond from. Bonds can be issued by anyone from small companies to multi-nationals or from small municipalities, all the way up to big governments like Canada. When these corporations/governments issue a bond, they bind themselves to specific terms like what date they must re-pay the loan (known as maturity) and what interest rate they’ll be paying to borrow your money (known as the coupon). The more likely a corporation or government is to repay the loan in a timely manner, the lower the interest rate. Conversely, if a company’s financial status indicates they might be at risk of late or non-payment, they will have no choice but to pay a higher interest rate to compensate the lenders (psst…that’s you!) Companies are classified based on the likelihood of repaying their debt by their credit rating, which is assigned by one or more rating agencies like S&P, Moody’s, or DBRS. While you’re not likely to see your investment in a bond grow as quickly as a stock when the economy is good, when things take a downturn, owning bonds from companies and governments that are financially stable can protect you from hefty losses.

Homegrown THC +Blazing Trails WHO HASN’T COME UP WITH SOME CRAZY STORIES HANGING OUT WITH A FEW FRIENDS MIDWEEK ON YOUR COUCH, IT’S A PRETTY TYPICAL EXPERIENCE. WHAT ISN’T TYPICAL IS ACTUALLY DEVELOPING THAT STORY INTO A FULL-FLEDGED FEATURE LENGTH PRODUCTION WHICH IS EXACTLY WHAT SHAWN MCLAREN, WILL ANDREWS, AND CRAIG COUPAL ARE DOING. WE MET UP WITH THE THREE OF THEM AND GOT THE SKINNY ON THC+ AND THEIR PLANS TO MAKE THEIR FADED FANTASIES A REALITY. 20SS: TELL US ABOUT THC+. THC: The story surrounds two stoner pals, Chuck and Doug, one human and one vampire. One day while hanging out and lamenting the fact that Chuck as a vampire can no longer enjoy their high flying escapades they find out that vampires can get high off THC positive blood. Hilarity and horror ensue as the demand for THC+ increases into an industry of its own.This whole idea started as just two of us joking around and telling stories. Then as things went on we kind of realized we might be on to something and started writing it all out. The more we got into creating the story the more excited we all got about the idea and finally it came to a point wherewe had to make it happen. The universe clearly wants us to make this epic stoner comedy/ horror we’ve come up with so we’re cashing in all our favours and running with it. This isn’t going to be your typical film that just happens to be shot in Sudbury, this is going to be a showcase of Sudbury and the creative people we’ve got to draw from. 20SS: TELL US ABOUT THE LAUNCH PARTY. THC: To kick this whole thing off we’ll be hosting a Psychedelic Carnival at the Grand Nightclub March 13th. There will be games, prizes, live art exhibits, great bands and a special viewing of a teaser for the film. Five Bucks at the door gets you into the biggest, loudest party in town, you won’t want to miss out! This will also launch the start of our Indiegogo campaign – making a movie isn’t cheap you know! So if you want to help out in small (or large) way donations are definitely welcome and appreciated. 20SS: HOW CAN WE DONATE? THC: We’ll be launching our indiegogo campaign March 13th so make sure to look for THC+ on facebook or visit www.thcpositivemovie.com for all the details as they become available. “What’s in it for me?” you might ask – we’ll have tons of donor perks to choose from, but more on that once we launch.
20SS: WHERE CAN WE FIND MORE INFORMATION? THC: Look for THC+ on facebook or head to our website at www. thcpositivemovie.com. And don’t forget to come out to our Psychedelic Carnival launch party Friday March 13th to get all the details first hand!

covergalls NEW WORK WEAR FOR WOMEN.
20SS: WHAT WAS YOU INSPIRATION FOR COVERGALLS CLOTHING LINE? AW: When I entered the mining industry I had to go find Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to wear - so coveralls, hard hats, belts, boots, everything- and when I walked into the store there was absolutely nothing for women. I grabbed the smallest size from the rack and had a seamstress take in the garment and chop off a foot from the bottom, because it just didn’t fit but it wasn’t until I went underground and asked where would I go to the washroom that I discovered the bigger issue with the coverall. It was then the idea for a coverall made for women started to sprout. 20SS: WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THE FUTURE? AW: We are working to expand our product line. After our pitch aired we launched our new glove designed and manufactured in conjunction with Mechanix Wear, a glove brand already well established. Right now we’re working on our new bib overall, which of course comes with our “rear trap door”. The prototype just arrived and we have begun testing and gathering feedback for the final design and production. Also, based on demand we will be launching the Coverguy this spring – a male version of the Covergall and a new camo line up. 20SS: WHAT WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE ON DRAGONS DENS LIKE? AW: It was an amazing experience. I do have to admit it was very intimidating and scary walking down the stairs and facing the dragons but once they warmed up it was like having a conversation. The due diligence process since the pitch has been a crash course in starting and running a business. The lessons learned and the experience in the den are invaluable. 20SS: YOU EXECUTED YOUR IDEA PERFECTLY, DID YOU HAVE A GOOD IDEA THAT YOUR BUSINESS PLAN WOULD BE A SURE THING? ON THE COVER: ALICIA WOODS CREATOR OF COVERGALLS”
AW: You never know, but I studied extremely hard and ensured I was well prepared before entering the den. You need to know your business and industry in and out and be prepared to speak to every aspect of it.
20SS: WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE PEOPLE IN SUDBURY WHO WANT TO BE ENTREPRENEURS ? AW: Over the years and throughout my career I have been given some great advice that I follow and will share: surround yourself with good and like people, trust your gut and don’t use fear of failure as a reason to not do something. Also, being a mom, wife, entrepreneur and having a full time career I have learned the importance of prioritizing and balancing. I have learnt that you can’t do it all and it’s ok to lean on the support system around you. 20SS: WHERE CAN READER BUY COVERGALLS WEAR? AW: Readers can check out our product offering and purchase through our online store at covergallsworkwear. com/store/. For those in Sudbury they can try on and buy at Soucie Salo and Vallen. 20SS: WHAT HAS CHANGED IN YOUR LIFE SINCE THE SHOW? AW: The outcome has been very positive and the product has been so well received. It has opened up doors to speaking engagements and opportunities to share my experience and mentor the next generation of women entrepreneurs and those looking to enter the mining industry. Most importantly though is that it is allowing Covergalls to encourage and make young females aware of the opportunities that exist for them in non-traditional fields and roles. In terms of product, the exposure has opened up doors to new industries like farming, oil and gas, trades and utilities and our online store has seen a big increase in sales. 20SS: WHAT IS SOMETHING PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU? AW: That I was involved with Girl Guides of Canada for over 15 years. It’s an organization that has taught me so much. It enables girls to be confident, resourceful and courageous. 20SS: WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES AND LOCAL PLACES YOU LIKE TO SHOP OR EAT OUT? AW: In my free time I enjoy downhill skiing with my family, being out on the boat, watching my children play sports and traveling. I love the food and atmosphere at Verdicchio’s and for a quick, healthy fun place to eat I go to Sizzle. /COVERGALLSWORKWEAR /COVERGALLS /COVERGALLS

M.O. Littles hip hop artist
20SS: HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY? ML: I started off when I was about 10 years old writing poetry, which eventually turned into raps as I got more exposed to hip hop. Both of my parents were english teachers, so writing came naturally to me. It wasn’t until I was 12 or 13 that I started vocalizing my rhymes and recording them on my homie’s grandma’s hand held tape recorder. We practiced and practiced because we only had one take to do the whole song haha. 20SS: WHAT IS THE MOST DIFFICULT THING YOU’VE HAD TO ENDURE IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY? ML: The most frustrating thing, I think, is the people who are out there to take advantage of young artists. There is a huge learning curve with this business and there’s a lot of people out there who will exploit those who are more inexperienced for their own personal gain. I’ve encountered my fair share of snakes in the grass but I’ve never been the type to let anyone else stop me. 20SS: HOW DOES IT FEEL TO FINALLY BE GETTING YOUR BIG BREAK? ML: Ha ha ha. The term ‘big break’ is a bit of an enigma. I’ve gotten to where I am sheerly from hard work and determination, plus a little talent. I’m very proud of my accomplishments but this game isn’t about getting to a certain level and feeling like that’s it I’ve made it. It’s a journey, not a destination. If you think I’ve done well so far, you ain’t seen nothing yet. 20SS: WHICH WELL KNOWN ARTISTS HAVE YOU HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH? ML: I’ve had the chance to tour and perform with Bone Thugs N Harmony, Mos Def & Talib Kweli, AZ, Dead Prez, Machine Gun Kelly, Snak The Ripper & Celph Titled & Apathy just to name a few. 20SS: WHAT ADVICE CAN YOU GIVE LOCAL ARTISTS LOOKING TO GET INTO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY? LM: The only advice I can give is keep at it. You have to be a 110% dedicated and willing to sacrifice to get what you want. That means giving up on your social life, missing birthdays and possibly being a broke ass for quite some time. If it’s just a hobby for you then that’s cool too but you need to recognize that this isn’t a part time hustle and if you really want to make something of it, you have to give it your all.

Trish Rainone actress
20SS: IS ACTING SOMETHING YOU’VE ASPIRED TO DO FROM A YOUNG AGE OR IS IT SOMETHING YOU REALIZED LATER IN YOUR LIFE? TR: I used to dream about doing it, but I was way too shy. I was a dancer, and comfortable on stage performing, but as soon as I had to speak- I would freeze. I actually was exempt from the yearly oral presentation in grade school, because I couldn’t get any words out once I got in front of the class. I did a few episodes of a kid’s show that aired across North America when I was about ten and remember being terrified of the camera crew and of having the cameras on me. Yet, really intrigued. Luckily I got my lines out! 20SS: WHAT IS SOMETHING READERS DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU TR: I have a wish box. I write down all my goals and wishes and throw them into the box. It’s a little wooden box that my sister’s gave me when they were younger. 20SS: WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR THE FUTURE? TR: I’ve been lucky and have worked hard with coaches at The IYA Studio in Toronto (Tony Babcock and Micheal Gordin-Shore) and booked a few gigs recently. I did an episode of Paranormal Survivor (Episode 5- airing in February on TRAVEL/ESCAPE as Regina in Regina’s Haunted Rental), booked a commercial with Zazeen TV, and have been trying to produce my own film, Hidden Cemetery, with an amazingly talented actress, Rebecca Rodley. 20SS: HAVE YOU BEEN INSPIRED BY ANY ACTORS IN PARTICULAR? TR: I am so inspired by Jessica Chastain. I think she’s a brilliant actor and very captivating to watch. I’ve been inspired by actresses I’ve worked with. I always learn from my co-stars. Mary-Alice Farina played my boyfriend’s mom, Sally, in the film, A Lot Like Marriage. 20SS: WHAT ACTOR WOULD YOU LOVE TO WORK ALONGSIDE AS LEAD MALE IN A FILM OR TV SHOW? TR: If I got the chance to work with Ryan Gosling, my life would be made. I watched him on Breaker High growing up, and he has come so far since then. Seeing someone’s growth as an actor impresses me. That shows me they’ve worked really hard and put in a lot of hours to be as good as they are. 20SS: WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR ASPIRING ACTORS IN SUDBURY? TR: Train, train, train. Set really clear goals for yourself. Maybe get a wish box and throw those goals in there! Just take opportunities when they come. Trust your gut. Ask your boss for that time off to go audition. Follow your passion and remember that days on set are really long and far from glamorous. Be nice to people. 20SS: FAVOURITE LOCAL HOT SPOT? photo by: Yunner
