Elysium Cabaret’s February 21st 2020 Show

Creation was on overdrive at Elysium this week. This show was full of surprises. I have seldom seen a show with so many choreographers doing things that are completely different from the genre of music and style of act that they more typically create. Our cherished audience was treated to performances that inspired, delighted, and filled a mind with wonderment. I’ve seldom felt so small before such majesty. It was glorious! Thank you to our dedicated choreographers, our team of dancers, Paul, Jilley, and Wiz for keeping everything nailed together, and DJ Gunner for the tunes. A huge thanks and much love to our audience… thank you for letting us share our imaginations with you. WELCOME TO THE WEEKEND!

I do wonder what was up with all the bananas at the show….

The after-party is really becoming a thing too, with thanks to Tempe and Jeni for dancing peeps and DJ Gunner spinning requests! Hanging out and enjoying a bit of socialising with music and dance… good fun!

Let’s take a look at some pics from the show.

Elysium Cabaret’s February 7th 2020 Show

It was another fabulous Friday night in The Empire Room at Copperhead Road. Elysium Cabaret entertained a cherished audience with some of the finest choreographers on the grid. Their dedication and talent was appreciated by all, as they shared their imaginative creations with family and friends. There are no strangers at Elysium, just friends we haven’t met yet. Which is part of the fun of dance… meeting new people and making new friends! It is such a fulfilling social outlet as well as a creative one. Jilley and Paul welcomed arriving guests, greeting them with champagne and caviar. DJ Gunner warmed up the crowd with some fine rock and dance tunes as The Wiz wrangled the talent backstage. Babypea was found under a riser, enjoying a pre-show snack of beer and pork rinds. It was a good night! Welcome to the WEEKEND!

It was Friday night so that means, it was Elysium Cabaret! This was the last Friday of the month, so it was our monthly theme show. Tonight’s theme was Flashback Friday, allowing our choreographers to present some of their best and most favourite acts ever. What a great show it was, some old acts, some new, all fantastic. With Paul and Jilley greeting arriving guests, DJ Gunner spinning the tunes, Wiz backstage sobering me up, the show started with a whole lotta steam and finished with a tear. It was all powerful stuff. Thank you to our friends and family for filling our audience and sharing the joy of dance with us. Let’s take a look at the show! Oh, and WELCOME TO THE WEEKEND!

Donation Completed to Wildlife Victoria

Well, I sold the 73,050 lindens which is what you have to do to convert them to USD. I then processed the credit which is what you have to do to withdraw the lindens to Paypal. It all finally cleared today, and I made the donation to Wildlife Victoria. Linden Labs took a small chunk for fees totalling 22.61 USD, which is I believe 5% of the lindens when ‘selling’ them (converting them to USD) and then 5% of that when processing the credit (withdrawing them to Paypal). But I topped the donation up to an even 400 AUD, which more than covers what they took.

I again THANK each and every person who participated with this donation by performing in the show and/or donating lindens. And THANK YOU to Nara for suggesting this event. Wildlife Victoria appreciates every dollar donated, and it all adds up. Every bit helps. Following is a screenshot of the donation receipt, and a copy/paste of the message on the receipt, as well as the receipt number with date and amount. I did black out my surname and address for the sake of my privacy.

Thank you for your generous donation towards wildlife affected by bushfires and extreme heat events in Victoria. When it comes to wildlife, the real work begins after the main crisis has passed. Your support will help wildlife shelters and carers in bushfire affected areas, as they rebuild and tend to all the extra animals in need of care over the coming months. Your donation will also assist wildlife carers who are struggling to care for hundreds of flying foxes left orphaned by the extreme heat events all over the state.

Please add our number – 03 8400 7300 – to your phone contacts if you are travelling in a fire affected region in
the coming months and see wildlife in distress.

On behalf of all of the injured and orphaned wildlife that will receive a second chance, thank you.

Receipt No. 0126055
Date 29/01/2020
Amount 400.00 AUD

Andy’s Video of the Bushfire Appeal Show

Thank you Andy, this is beautifully done. Thank you for the message at the end of the video, as well.

Please give this video a like and share it. People can still donate directly to the bushfire appeal organisation of their choice.

Correction from previous post: It was NARA who suggested we donate our tips from this past Friday’s Australia Day-themed show to one of the Australian bushfire appeals. We chose Wildlife Victoria because they had been missing out on a lot of the donations being given, so we wanted to help them out. But any donation to any bushfire appeal is a blessing, and we thank you for anything you have given or will give.

Elysium’s January 24th 2020 Australia Day Show!

This was a very special show. We had already planned a theme show for today. In celebration of Australia Day which is January 26, we had already decided to do an Australian-themed show on the 24th. Then Nara suggested us donating our tips to the bushfire appeal in Australia. As most people know, the bushfires still raging in Australia have devastated the nation and killed over 1 billion animals.

As of 14 January 2020, fires this season have burnt an estimated 18.6 million hectares (46 million acres; 186,000 square kilometres; 72,000 square miles), destroyed over 5,900 buildings (including approximately 2,683 homes) and killed at least 34 people. An estimated one billion animals were also killed and some endangered species may be driven to extinction.

And the fires are still going. Due to the horrid drought that has ravaged the land, wet gullies and areas that usually remain untouched by bushfires are also so dry, even they have burnt, leaving nowhere for wild animals to retreat to. Some species are feared to be extinct after so much destruction. Australia is reeling under the extreme need, people are doing everything they can to help people and wildlife who have lost homes and habitat as well as so many injured animals. So everyone who made dances for the show tonight agreed to give all tips to Wildlife Victoria, who have put out a bushfire appeal.

https://www.wildlifevictoria.org.au/

Our show was fun, beautiful, and deeply touching. We thank all who participated, whether it was on the stage, behind the scenes, or in the audience. We THANK everyone who donated! Together, we raised 73,050 lindens. I have begun the process of withdrawing this as real life money. It will take up to five business days, but hopefully no more than three. Linden Labs took 5% (!!) which there is no way around, apparently they don’t even make exceptions for charities. So the amount I am awaiting is $262.11 USD. I will report back what that converts into once the donation is made. The final amount will depend on the exchange rate on the day. At the moment, it’s $384.04. The bushfires are heartbreaking, but we each do what we can, and every bit helps. This will help. It is something we can do.

Meanwhile, today was also DJ Gunner’s RL birthday. How hold is he? Depends on how you place the candles! After the show, a lot of us stayed and celebrated The Man’s special day.

Here is a look at a very special show, with a very heart-felt ‘Welcome to the Weekend.’ Love to you all!

EPIC POP | ”Hope” by Nathan Wagner
I usually post two pics of each dance, but Sarah’s dance was so emotional, I have included more pictures from her dance. She made us all cry. And seeing the pics of Lewis, a koala the world came to know through a brave woman’s rescue… it was overwhelming. Sarah’s tribute was deeply touching. It is so hard to type this. Words do not do it or any of these bushfire catastrophes justice. And the people… when you think people are bad, just look at all the people helping. People at home, risking their lives to try to rescue other people and animals, our firefighters risking their lives to try to stop the fires. All the volunteers rescuing and treating wildlife, searching for injured animals, and setting up feeding and watering stations for animals who have lost their homes and food sources. People from all over the world caring, giving, and trying to help Australia heal. It is love. It is overwhelming.
