Advertisements As part of our ACS student spotlight series we were able to sit down with real life rock star Sam Cash and ask him a few questions. Sam’s band, Sam Cash and the Romantic Dogs released their latest record “Stand Together, Fall Together” last September and since then have been touring and playing gigs around Canada. Here’s what he had to say: What year and option are you in? 4th year Culture Studies What about ACS appealed to you when choosing a program? It seemed like the sort of program that had a bit more of a foundation in creativity and free thought.
Your latest album “Stand Together, Fall Together” has gotten some really positive reviews, care to tell us a little about it? We released the record in september, and it’s been a really great ride so far. It’s really cool to see that people have been digging the record, and it’s started to get us some better gigs–which is rad! Has there been any class you have taken that has influenced your music? Not necessarily, but I think the whole experience of being in school and being in a band has forced me to hone my writing more.
Even though many of the essays I’m writing at Ryerson have nothing to do with music, I’m still engaging in the writing process in different ways than I would had I not been in school. Most writers–of any kind–will tell you that the key to good writing is to just keep doing it, so at Ryerson I have that opportunity–even though writing an essay at 2am after a gig is not ideal. How to you balance school and your music career? It’s really difficult most of the time.
If we’ve got a tour, I usually know months in advance, so I take time off from school when I can see that it would be too hectic to do both. I also don’t really take full course loads, because it would be impossible to that, and play gigs/write songs/practice/tour. I’ve just found my own way to make it all manageable. What’s up next for you? What are your plans when you graduate ACS? We’re just gonna keep playing, and touring.
I’m gonna keep writing, and hopefully finish up at Ryerson sooner rather than later. I have no specific plans after I graduate–I’ll just see where life takes me I guess. In the last few years, what achievement have you been most proud of? I try not to pat myself on the back to early. I’ve been working really hard, and I haven’t gotten to where I want to yet. I’m proud of a lot of things in the past year, but that doesn’t mean I can relax and feel like I’ve accomplished everything that I’ve wanted to.
I’ll keep my head down for a few more years, and then maybe I’ll have a better answer. Any upcoming shows we can catch you at this summer? Yeah we’re playing a bunch during the summer. www.samcash.ca has all the dates. But I’m really excited to be playing TURF (Toronto Urban Roots Festival)–and Hillside festival will be a pretty fun gig at the end July Thanks for taking the time to answer the questions Sam, keep on rocking!! Use Grammarly’s plagiarism checker because accidental plagiarism is still plagiarism.
Can a person become a successful artist and live in Toronto? This question is explored in the novel “How Should a Person Be?” by Toronto born artist Sheila Heti. The novel is semi autographical using transcripts of real emails and conversations. The exploration and growth of the main character Sheila within the backdrop of Toronto is an essential read of any student and artist trying to make their way in Toronto.
A city that has always lived in the shadow of it’s counterpart New York City, Toronto has been despised and under appreciated by a large member of the Canadian population. That’s why Sheila Heti’s “How Should a Person Be?” is so important, it is unapologetic in its setting of Toronto and represents a much more accurate representation of Toronto than the definition of “Toronto the good” that is still engrained in peoples minds.
Heti’s novel gives us, Toronto dwelling writers and artists, permission to live and create successfully in Toronto. Her work motivates and excites with the idea of transcribing life events in all their roughness in to a piece of art. ASB Ryerson is an entirely student-run and locally operated group. ASB can be simply described as traveling with a purpose. Ryerson students volunteer their time and work in developing countries while they experience and learn from another culture.
The program is open to all faculties, giving students an opportunity to learn from other team members’ perspectives as well as their own experience on the project. ASB requires dedication, enthusiasm, and hard work, but is exciting and life changing not only for you, but for those you will be helping overseas. It inspires and challenges you every day, while altering your perceptions of this world and your place in it.
ASB is simply an amazing experience ASB believes that respecting and understanding other cultures can foster positive change both in our own community and abroad. ASB is about changing the world in small steps by encouraging students to change themselves. Our actions in our own community affect people all over the world. ASB believes journeys like ours will have a lifelong impact on students, and help shape them as the leaders of tomorrow by giving them their experiences today.

com/ – Post written by Jeffery Patterson Piper Kerman seems like she would be a horrible prison bunkmate. The author of the book “Orange Is the New Black: My Year In a Women’s Prison”, which the hit Netflix show is based, comes off as superior and infuriating throughout her memoir. Kerman judges almost every prisonmate in the book, if not based on looks then on intelligence or personality.
While judging every other women in the facility, Kerman subtly and not so subtly points out why she is better than them. Another downfall of the memoir is Kerman stating what the reader should believe instead of showing it. For example, instead of explaining her time in prison and allowing the reader’s intelligence to come to their own conclusions she flat out states the governments war on drugs is ineffective.
Stating things without backing it up comes across as lazy writing. The tip of the iceberg was when she somehow tried to justify heroin by saying there are less deaths from heroin per year than cigarettes. Oh the fallacies! I’m usually partial to novels than their film adaptations, but in this case, stick to the show. Ryerson’s Next Top Speaker is back!

To start off our new series of interviews with ACS students we got a chance to ask powerhouse Megan Stulberg a few questions. Megan is the lead editor of The Continuist, writes for Fat Girl Food Squad, as well as interning at The Modern Literature and Culture Research Centre. Photo: Matthew McCalla Here’s what she had to say: Q – What exactly is The Continuist? A – The Continuist is an online and print arts publication based out of the Arts and Contemporary Studies program at Ryerson University.
We design and print zines (essentially a mini magazine with a specific target) with artwork, photography, writing and more from student submissions. We also host workshops, music shows, and other events that demonstrate a creative focus. Q – How did you get involved? A – I joined the Continuist team within my first few weeks at Ryerson in September 2011. One of the former editors who has since graduated, Jenna, spoke in front of my class about an open meeting that the Continuist was having.
I was pretty nervous in the first few meetings and didn’t say or do too much, but since then my involvement has increased significantly. Q – Can anybody submit art? Can anyone become a member on your team? A- Anybody can submit to our publication, yes. We advertise mostly on campus but we do frequently receive submissions from students of neighbouring universities (U of T, OCADU) as well as local artists.
We try our best not to exclude anybody and promote all forms of creativity. However, since we are a Ryerson-affiliated publication, only Ryerson students can currently become members of our editorial team. Q – How do you balance The Continuist and schoolwork? A – I barely do! I’m a full-time student, have a part-time job, have an internship, work as a freelance artist and run the Continuist.
For most of this, I just use my agenda obsessively and hope for the best. As for The Continuist we have an amazing editorial team this year and everybody is eager to split the work and contribute new ideas. We also receive constant support and feedback from various Ryerson faculty members. Q – Do you feel that ACS courses have impacted your art? A – Not really. My artwork has significantly improved since beginning at Ryerson but I’m not sure it’s because of the coursework.
I’m definitely interested by what I’m learning in Arts and Contemporary Studies, but I don’t think they’re related. I think that my art has changed mostly because of the personal growth I’ve made throughout my time at Ryerson so far, as I’ve moved to Toronto and have become more independent. Art by Megan Stulberg done in black ink Q – Since you have been on The Continuist team, what achievement have you been most proud of? A – I’m really proud of how far we’ve come.
We’ve improved the quality of our publication, as well as the quantity. We’ve gained more of a fan base, and have expanded the nature of the events that we host. I am extremely proud of the team that I work with. The achievement that I’m most proud of would probably be a music show we hosted at a bar in February 2013. We hadn’t done anything to that scale before and 200+ people came. It was great.
Q – What do you hope to achieve with the Continuist in the next year? A – We hope to throw another large music show, continue to improve the quality of our large annual publication, and produce smaller themed zines. We hope to increase our budget so we can host more event on campus. Q – What’s next for the Continuist? A – After our launch party this Thursday, we’ll be hosting a film screening and discussion with Ryerson professor and Canadian film scholar Murray Pomerance.
We’ll be posting about it on our website, Facebook page, etc within the next week. Q- Final question: What are your plans after you finish your degree at Ryerson? A- Right now I’m still trying to figure that out! I’d like to pursue a graduate degree in publishing. I’ve also recently looked into a MFA program at OCAD. The Continuist’s table at Canzine 2013The Continuist’s music show at the May, February 2013 Wow! Thanks for taking the time to talk to us Megan, you’re doing some amazing stuff! Come out this Thursday, November 7th, for The Continuist zine launch and art showcase.
The event starts at 5pm and goes until 8pm and is located at 111 Gerrard Street East, first floor, in the newly renovated MLC Research and Innovation Zone. RSVP here. It’s going to be rad.
