Even the holliest jolliestChristmas elf has something heor she hates about the holidays.Whether it’s getting a terrible giftfrom your Secret Santa or tryingto navigate the bustling malls insearch of the last few items onyour list, Josephine Cleo is cele- brating the things we love to hateabout the “best” time of the year.In her show, Holiday Snidings,Cleo is taking her snark andsongs to the Wolf PerformanceHall stage on December 10,telling stories, performingChristmas songs and three of her own original songs. The showwill be fun for all ages – “nothingsaucy, just sassy,” said Cleo.Zach Havens, of the band ToTell, will accompany her songson the piano.“Christmas is just rife withopportunities to make fun of it – and I don’t mean the religiousaspect,” she said. “I’m billing itas ‘Celebrating the things welove to hate,’ but it’s not mean-spirited in hate, it’s the annoy-ances.” Though the show may poke fun at some holiday tradi-tions, Cleo compared it to “thegrumpy old man with the heart of gold,” adding that it was reallyabout getting into the Christmasspirit.Cleo said she draws some of her inspiration from working at aMAC makeup counter at a mallduring the holiday season, whenher co-workers would sometimes be up to half an hour late for their shifts because they couldn’t finda place to park. “You think it’ssupposed to be this time of givingand goodwill, but (people) willram your car to get your parkingspot,” she laughed.“It’s a show meant for fun, andI want people to come to laugh(because I’m funny), forget their troubles (because the show isengaging) and bond over the not-so-great holiday headaches (mis-ery loves company!),” she added.“I also hope they will walk awayfrom the show having found afresh new voice in London(mine) that aspires to reach theheights of the Divine MissMidler,” of whom Cleo is a hugefan.Cleo is already on her way toBette Midler-level stardom, hav-ing a small piece of the star’s his-tory on stage with her onDecember 10. After finding anonline auction of one of Midler’smicrophones from a show Cleoherself had attended at Caesar’sPalace in Las Vegas, “a split-sec-ond decision and mouse click later, and I am now the proudowner of Bette’s Shure KSM9handheld vocal microphone inchampagne finish,” she grinned.“I said to myself that if I wonthe auction, it would be an omenthat good things are to come, andthat I am on the right path towardmy dream of being a singer.Maybe it’s just wishful thinking, but if Bette started inBathhouses, then surely I can begin my career at the Wolf Performance Hall!”Cleo is a graduate of theAccounting program atFanshawe, and is currently work-ing as an Accountant in London.Though she is fairly new to our city’s music scene, this is not her first time on stage. In May thisyear, she put on a show about her  journey to becoming a singer.“I’ve known since I was 11 that Iwanted to sing, but I just never ended up getting there,” she said.Her May show had people in hys-terics, and this Christmas show promises to be another excellentnight of entertainment.Part of the proceeds fromHoliday Snidings’ ticket saleswill benefit London’s HumaneSociety. Cleo has a dog and a catfrom the Humane Society andsaid she thinks they do a greatservice for the furry citizens of our city. “A relationship with a pet is like no other. It’s uncondi-tional love,” she said. “Anythingthat I can do to support (theHumane Society), I will.” She isalso encouraging people to bringdonations of wet or dry cat foodto the show, as well as monetarydonations to purchase raffle tick-ets for some awesome prizes,including a MAC cosmetics gift basket and gift cards to Best Buy,Weezi and Grooves.Tickets for Holiday Snidingsare on sale at Weezi (2-204Albert St.), Grooves (353Clarence St.) and her website josephinecleo.com. Tickets are$20, and the show starts at 6:30 p.m.
Seasonal snark to put youin the holiday spirit

On December 6 at noon in theAlumni Lounge, the Women’sCampus Safety Committee will be providing a memorial for the14 young women, all engineeringstudents at École Polytechniquein Montréal, who were murderedon December 6, 1989 by MarcLepine. Fourteen other students,of which four were male, wereinjured and Marc Lepine subse-quently killed himself.The murder of such talentedyoung women profoundlyshocked everyone – both womenand men. For women, it was aterrifying reminder of their vul-nerability to hatred and harm as aresult of their sex and aspirations.For men, it was a stark realiza-tion of the fear that women faceevery day of their lives.There was no doubt that MarcLepine had targeted the women.His suicide note talked aboutother women whom he wished tokill. When he first entered theuniversity, he separated the menin the building from the womenand made statements during theshootings about “fighting femi-nism.”December 6 has become theanniversary of what is known asthe “Montréal Massacres,” butmore importantly, it has beendesignated as the National Day of Remembrance and Action OnViolence Against Women. Butthere is a present perception bysome that women are no longer  particularly at risk of violenceand that there is no longer a needto advocate for social and politi-cal change, or education andtraining to prevent violenceagainst women. Others suggestthat the violence that womenexperience is no different fromthe violence experienced by menand that is mostly perpetrated bystrangers or casual acquaintanc-es.In Ontario, a Committee wasformed in 2003 by the Chief Coroner’s Office to reviewdomestic violence related homi-cides in Ontario each year. Thesecases are homicides perpetrated by intimate partners – notstrangers or casual acquaintanc-es. In Ontario, there are approxi-mately 20 to 30 domestic vio-lence related homicides a year. In2010, there were 18 cases,involving 36 deaths reviewed bythe Domestic Violence ReviewCommittee. Most of the victimswere female. There were twomale victims and both of thesewere the children of the perpetra-tor. All of the perpetrators weremale.It is estimated that there areover 600 cases of missing andmurdered Aboriginal women inCanada. In spite of repeatedattempts by families of thesewomen to have these cases fullyinvestigated, the tragedies thatthese families experience – Amnesty International callsthese tragedies of a national pro- portion – continue.What can you do about it?Acknowledge that this vio-lence is still happening. Learn torecognize the signs of abuse andknow what actions to take.Attend the memorial onDecember 6 at noon in theAlumni Lounge to honour the 14engineering students, to honour the missing and murderedAboriginal women and to honour all of the women – our mothers,our sisters, our neighbours, our friends – who have been abusedor lost their lives in our owncommunities through violence.
