Twisted Features #3

Much Ado About Prime!

This week we’ve got a few things going on with local lighting store, Prime Lighting Design.  As  Hallowe’en fades away, our thoughts begin to sway to the tune of upcoming gift-giving season.  Prime will be spotlighting some unique alternative gift ideas throughout the week, as their ‘Tis the Season theme hits the internet.  Check in through out the week to see some great gift concepts.

Twisted founder, Paul Reaume, spends his days working at Prime and is personally excited about the store’s holiday theme.

“We’ve decided to go with a Norman Rockwell inspired theme throughout the store as we approach the holidays.  If you go onto our Facebook page, you’ll see that we’ve changed our cover photo to reflect the theme.  In designing the image I wanted to pay homage to the ‘Saturday Evening Post’, illustrated by Mr.Rockwell.  I’ve always been a huge fan of his work, and I really enjoy utilizing that passion here.”

Paul will also be completing a special Rockwell-inspired artpiece which will be displayed at the store, and later raffled off!  More details to follow.

Later this week, Twisted Studio will also be posted their spotlight on Prime Lighting Design.  So be sure to come back to the site on Friday, while we look at Prime and what makes them such a great retail location.  In the meantime pay their website a visit, or pop into their Facebook page and say hello!

Twisted Features #2

Posted on 29th October 2012 in Twisted Features

The haunting season continues this week, as Hallowe’en looms closer and closer still.  As you get prepared for a chilly, windy, and rainy evening of Trick-or-Treating, consider stopping by Tecumseh Mall.  Many participating retailers will be offering treats to their costumed guests between 5:30 & 7:00pm.  While you’re there, be sure to show your support for local community theatre group, Theatre Windsor.  This non-profit organization has extended the run of their Haunted House at Tecumseh mall all the way to Hallowe’en.  Click here for more details.

Last week we spotlighted local podcast series, Horror 101.  This week, Cash has released his latest installment “Episode 14: Why Trick-or-Treat, When You Can Have Both?”.    Join the Horror 101 crew as they discuss some scary movie gems, and reminisce of Hallowe’ens past.  While you’re there, why not take some time to check out some older episodes as well!

Carrying on in true spirited fashion, Prime Lighting Design has continued their appropriately themed “Bats in the Belfry” promotion.  The sale will continue to October 31st.  Hurry in while you can, these greatly reduced, and tastefully designed fixtures are….flying out the door!  For more information continue on to Prime’s homepage, or Facebook page.

Last but not least, we’ve also introduced our Roots Program and our first Roots Member ‘Cheryl’s Crafty Creations’.  This week we will be unlocking the CCC website for the public!  While we work closely with Cheryl to iron out the last few wrinkles of her online presence, we’d like to give the web community a clear idea of the wonders she creates.  Stay tuned to Twisted Studio for more information!

Twisted Features #1

Posted on 21st October 2012 in Twisted Features

Hello and welcome Twisted Fans to the first of our on-going newsletter series, Twisted Features.  Our community, local businesses, and economy and the strength of which is extremely important, so we’d like to take a few moments each week to discuss and celebrate some of the exciting things going on around us.

Bone-Chilling savings are the theme of the week at Prime Lighting Design, as they roll out their “Bats in the Belfry” promotion.  The lighting store has drastically reduced the prices on retired industry favourites, but quantities are limited so hurry in.  Check out Prime’s website for more information on this jaw-dropping event.


Carrying on the spooky nature of things, Twisted Studio will be spotlighting local webcast series, Horror 101.  Windsor’s own horror expert, Cash Wampum has made a name for himself summarizing and critiquing scary films new and old.  Check back in to the Studio site tomorrow to learn more about this awesome local series.

The chills don’t stop there, of course!  Starting Friday, October 26th, Theatre Windsor will be hosting a haunted house at Tecumseh Mall.  Theatre Windsor is a local non-profit organization with a history of spooking residents.  A recommended donation of $2 will be accepted as admission, and we’ll be sure to post more information as opening night lurks closer.

Coming up on Thursday, Twisted Studio’s own, Dave Rocha will be posting his informative essay on the war of 1812.  His carefully thought-out piece will be examining the age-old question of who truly won Canada’s forgotten war.

That’s it for our Twisted Features this week, but keep checking into the site as we continue to polish things up, and dust out the corners.

Onwards & Upwards
