Elysium Cabaret’s Show of February 15th 2019

If it’s Friday, it’s Elysium Cabaret, and hey it was Friday! Welcome to the weekend! Friends and family gathered under a canopy of imagination at The Empire Room on the Copperhead Road sim. Paul and Jilley welcomed arriving guests who were immediately enveloped in DJ Corri’s intoxicating tunes. Wiz was indisposed, we will say he was working in RL but I heard he was really in jail for trying to feather dust a meter maid who was attempting to give him a parking fine. Okay I’m lying, Wiz was not in jail! Does anybody know where he has been? He has gone missing! We need to put an APB out on him. FIND OUR WIZ!

*climbs to the top of the nearest mountain and yells out, “WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!”

Well. The show must go on, and on it did go. Let’s take a look at the fine performances presented! All made with love of music and movement, a celebration of creativity and human imagination. Let us share with one another.

==========================================
Jo
With Seb, Diamonte, Queenie, Nara and Jilley
Jo created something unique and very special, striking and artsy that is a must-see in SL dance.
Black or white – Glee Cast

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
It’s actually a convoluted tale. I went to an art installation by Meilo Minotaur recently and she generously made the avatars she used available for anyone to take. Some were perfect for a dance and I had the set in my mind right away: very simplistic, stark and childlike, as they are, plus mostly white and black to show them off. The set idea is based on a Cica Ghost exhibit I saw years ago and the trees and cats are actually from her store. But I needed a song. I googled black and white plus songs and this Michael Jackson one popped up and finally all the elements were in place to create the dance.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Actually this was the fastest I have ever put together a dance. Three days after I found the avatars this dance was boxed in its rezzer and complete. That’s very unusual, extremely fast for me. A chunk of time was spent negotiating with Cica to sell me modifiable trees and cats to add the rezzer script as her work is rarely mod. It just all seemed to come together neatly.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
I know the whole thing makes no sense at all. To me it is just a very visual experience, about the achromatic colours, black and white, inspired by the avatars who were just longing to dance. But it was great fun to do.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Don’t look for any subtleties. Laughs. But I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed turning these avatars into dancers!

==========================================
Adam
With Bella, Dear, Si, Zena, Beebs
Adam took us back in time to bounce us in our seats with this upbeat high-energy tune.
Justin Timberlake – Can’t Stop the Feeling


==========================================
Paul
DNA-Kindrick Lamar
Paul unleashed the shadows with this bold song, performed on a beautifully lit set, rich with mystery and intrigue.


==========================================
Corri
With Cael, and Zach
Corri got in touch with her inner Mistress, and I heard Miss Ame coached her on showing her teeth to this sexy guys!
Lady Gaga – Teeth


==========================================
Denyaii
With Soco, Sammy, Melvis, Seb, Diamonte
The guys and the gals all teased each other, then the guys took the gals back to their cars to take them for a ride. Looked like fun!
Prince & The New Power Generation – Sexy M. F.


==========================================
Elayn
With DarkRaven Ninetails, Paul Woodrunner, Cannon
Whiskey – Marion Hill
Dark, mysterious and sexy, Elayn dropped a few jaws with this smoaking act, plus the lighting on the set was warm and enticing.

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
Had this song in my list for a while. Just love the beat and the dark steamy theme.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Getting off my butt and getting it done. 🙂

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
Just sexy fun really. Whiskey just always has that ‘dangerous’ sort of feel to it. What’s not to love?

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Don’t drink.. alone. 😉

==========================================
Jilley
With Jo and Gracie
The three lovely princesses, though one of them was (and is) a bit of an evil Princess! Guess which one… if you guess right, you win a prize!
Call Me a Princess


==========================================
Bella

With Everyone
Fun and super sexy tunes with fabulous choreo, everyone had a great time coming together on stage to dance the final act of the night!

Let’s Look at the Elysium Show of February 8th 2019!

It was Friday night, and that meant, it was Elysium Cabaret. Excitement was in the air as guests came from near and far, dressed in their finery, gathering in friendship in the glamorous Empire Room at Copperhead Road. Paul and Jilley welcomed friends and family as DJ Corri sizzled the airwaves with her tunes, getting people bouncing in their seats. Wiz was backstage, assuring dancers were prepared, stretching out and applying makeup, spraying hair and zipping up costumes… Babypea was chained up in the dressing room trying to regain consciousness. It was almost showtime! What came next? Let’s look at the pictures and see!

WELCOME TO THE WEEKEND!!

Dear
iRobot – Jon Bellion


==========================================
Ariel
With Dev, Rhonda, Bella, Adam, Beebs, and Cael
Chattanooga Choo Choo- Tuxedo Junction


==========================================
Ally
“Chandelier” by Sia (Piano version)


==========================================
Antonio
With Hailie
Motion Picture (Blake Mcgrath)

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
I had another song an set in mind, but then Blake dropped this an I heard this song and couldn’t stop listening to it, it felt right.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Well the timing to be honest, I know there are some rough spots in it, this was my first time putting a chair dance in, and my timing was harsh with my animations but over time I”ll probably redo it I have a few other things I’d like to do with this.

3. What does this dance mean to you?
Just took a little leap and reviled more than Hailie or I normally do on stage, and yes I was in control of her clothes (as always) and it was a little gift for her, was a year ago on valentines day of all days that our avs meet av to av and started talking.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Not really, you will see it again with a few changes, maybe a little steamier. However don’t be looking for the movie to be released publicly anytime soon.

==========================================
Eva
With Nara, COWGRL, Zena, and Jo
Meat Loaf Bat out of Hell


==========================================
Hailie
Queen – Loren Gray

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
I found this song as I was searching Youtube and loved it from the moment I heard it. Instantly a set sprung to mind and it is something a little different to what I usually do.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Nothing very challenging with this one, just attempting to take note to the finer details to make transitions looks smoother. Although with lag, you never know what is going to happen, will I be naked again? who knows, I hope not lol Maybe I should put two pairs of panties on just to be safe! lol

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
No deeper meaning to this for me personally, just love the song and my set reflects how it inspired my imagination. However, I do feel the song reflects the strength of a woman.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Nothing else to know about this, just watch out for the flames, as the dragons may escape, they are pretty friendly really when they are not hungry. I will be sure to feed them before the show…….but I have been very forgetful lately *giggles* oh well….hope you enjoy the show 🙂

==========================================
Queenie
With Lina, Jo, Gracie, and Jilley
Pink Floyd – Time


==========================================
Babypea
With Ame, Zach, Diamonte, Stoke, Sebastain, Gunner, Jordan, Web, and Wiz.
Low feat. RuPaul by Todrick Hall

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
I was searching YouTube for a particular genre of songs for a themed show, and came across this song. I fell head over heels in love with it, to the point of obsessively listening to it over and over and over for several hours. The video is BRILLIANT and lead me to my latest crush, Chester Lockhart. He is BEAUTIFUL and played the scarecrow in the video. This song pumps energy, the words to it are brilliant innuendo, and I love how they have modernised The Wizard of Oz.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
A lot of characters I needed to fit into the dance, bringing them in at different times to compliment the song. Plus three sets. But the costumes were the most difficult. I wanted Wizard of Oz but wanted it sexy and modern, not the traditional for the costumes. Was all put impossible to find exactly what I wanted. The scarecrow was really difficult. Try finding a sexy well-made mesh scarecrow costume. But I am really satisfied with what we did.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
Total fun and super badassery! LOVE the rhythymn!

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Check out my new obsession, and get obsessed with this amazing uber sexy dude, he is mesmerising and the epitome of SWOONABLE DELISH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3FBS6bwnlKY

Remember the February 1st 2019 Show?

I sure don’t. I wasn’t at this show. Where was I? Well, to be completely honest, some bitch who wanted to steal my magic bag gave me a poison cheese ball. I took a bite and fell into a deep, deep sleep. I slept through everything for like two weeks straight! I only woke up after my cat started licking my face but she was just after the cheese ball. I was most likely snoring with my mouth open. Judging by the raw patches on my tongue, I’d say she licked the cheese ball out of my mouth, so now I have cat germs. I have no idea what I missed during my slumber. Let’s find out!

Nothing in particular this time, just moving parts and no scene change but lots of pink, bling, money and sexy ladies!

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
Nothing meaningful in this set, just a lot of fun.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Getting my movers in a half circle right so i wasn’t bumping into the wall…lol

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
This act was lots of fun to create. Like I said…the message it sends. No one should be made to feel bad for who they are. Be good to one another.

I LOVE THE LORAX!!!!

Honky Tonk Badonkadonk
1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
It started with wanting a prop people could wear and change. Well, shoes wouldn’t work so well, outfits either, and then it hit me – everyone can wear a hat right? Once that started the ball rolling it was so much fun finding favorite songs that tied back to hats.

Carmen Miranda – The Lady in the Tutti Frutti Hat
2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Making the hats took longer than I thought – I had piles of hats everywhere making sure they worked and getting them into place. Piles and piles. Mountains of hats – everywhere. It was weeks before I wanted to even look at a hat again.

Men Without Hats – The Safety Dance
3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?

Let’s Look at Elysium’s January 25th 2019 Show!

Some people have been sick but still managed to get to the show and perform. Other than that, some people have been resting or wandering around the streets in a daze, pestering the passersby for spare change and cigarettes. Unfortunately one of these vagrants wandered into The Empire Room on Friday night. Paul dispatched security to remove the nuisance from the premises, but then it was learned the derelict was none other than Babypea. So they grabbed her and dragged her backstage, keeping her under watch until showtime cause she was opening the show.


Hey, look, it’s DJ Corri!

That was an attempt at a distraction. Not feeling well so will get right into last Friday’s show. But first!!

Of course we have our Golden Tweezers Award, the person who posted the funniest post in group chat during the show… funniest determined by a panel of judges comprised of me, myself and I. The weekly winner receives a nice trophy AND their post is preserved here on the blog. HERE is this week’s winning post:

Black Dagger Brotherhood

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Being Prim heavy till I changed a few things.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
Just fun, it’s a repeat but I thought with the theme, this would be a good one to show again.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Nope just sit back and enjoy all the steam heat of the city club.

==========================================
Hailie

Woman Like Me – Little Mix and Nikki Minaj

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
As you may know from some of my previous sets I am a Little Mix fan! When I heard this song, I knew I had to do a set.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Trying to get everything timed right, with the transitions and costume changes is always a challenge. So there was a lot of adjustments but I managed to get it done, however, I pray that with lag we don’t end up naked lol.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
This is purely fun and a lot of sexy, thank you to my ladies Lina and Jilley Roo for dancing with me.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Well…..Roo charmed the prison guards into keeping her warm at night. Personally I think something else was going on there but you know Roo is a bad girl. Those guards (Bill and Bob) were smiling, so it made it easier on Lina and I when we were smuggling contraband in our bras! No one knew…..until now of course. Ha! …….Roo is going to kill me now so I had best lay low 🙂

==========================================
Mikiko
With Zena and Rhonda
Salt-N-Pepa – Shoop

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
THE THEME was CITY HEAT. So pretty much urban, hip hop and I just loved this song the min I heard it, the beat the choreo just popped into my head the kind I wanted for it.

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Not much really I had so much fun building this urban city set.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
Mostly fun I loved the theme.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
I love to do chor for songs with great beats you just cant go wrong with that 🙂

Miami Vice Theme

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
My inspiration started with our theme, city heat. I love to do a mini theme for my crowd dances so this morphed into Miami Vice. Miami fit the city and heat, and who does it with more style than Crockett and Tubbs? Double bonus – as detectives, they’re the “heat” too 🙂 For the music, I started with the Miami Vice intro, then chose 3 songs that were used in MV episodes. The detectives had a few words to add of course.
Smuggler’s Blues – Glenn Frey

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
The set was a challenge for me! For the crowd dances we need to have space for 50 people, and I wanted something fun that also tied back to Miami Vice. Do you know how few Miami Vice things are on marketplace? A bit of demolition, duct tape, and I’m pretty happy. Hopefully people noticed the bartenders – and of course I had to have flamingos!
Naughty Naughty – John Parr

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
This dance was pure fun! I try to make each crowd dance a bit different, and a surprise or two. Hopefully I hit the mark! PS – the 80’s rocked.
The Heat is On – Glenn Frey

A Loving Look at Elysium’s Show of January 18th 2019

The muscles in my legs burned in spite of their tone conditioning as I pushed them to their limit, hands balled into fists as arms pumped, matching my strides. I was panting hard, sweat running from every pore, stinging my eyes and dripping from my nose and neck. Behind me, I heard a loud whizzing sound and leapt into the air, jumping from one roof to the next, lithely landing in a crouch and rolling under some rubble as a mini-nuke exploded behind me. I ducked down a stair case in the crumbling, war-ravaged brick building, my leather boots crunching on broken glass as I hurdled over debris. I could hear the yelling, the gritty male voices echoing off the ruined walls all around me, “COME ON, GIRL! LET’S DO THIS!”

I halted a moment, leaning against the wreckage of a wall as I closed my eyes, wiping perspiration from them and my forehead, trying to calm my heart that was pounding my ears. The roof of the building was half caved in, a piece of it hanging precariously above my head. I could see the sky through it, a bit of blue stained with orange fire and smoke. I took a drink of water from the canteen attached to my belt, then reached for my semi-automatic shotgun, hearing rapid footsteps coming down the stairs into the alcove. I braced myself then spun out and around, blasting the heavily armed man with a few rounds, watching him collapse into a lifeless pile of flesh, blood, and camo fatigues. Another attacker right behind him, I gritted my teeth and spat another battery of gunfire, stepping towards him with each pull of the trigger. I then doubled back up the stairs.

Stalking cautiously out onto the roof, I knew it was me or them, and I would have no peace as long as they remained. I had no choice but to eliminate them. I was not going to back down. If they wanted a fight, they would get one. I opened my Pip Boy and equipped my missile launcher. It was a small, personal missile launcher, perfect for home or office, excellent for settling small neighbourhood disputes. On the next roof, I could see the Commander and his henchmen, mercenaries. Gunners pretended to be all legit but they were really nothing more than raiders with nice uniforms and a formal chain of command. Hired guns, they were. Gunners, they called themselves. Capturing me, they desired. I frowned a moment, glancing around for Yoda, but then shook my head. That was a different game.

I fired off a blast of four missiles at them, watched one of them with great satisfaction as he flew into the air and splat into a lifeless heap.

“PEA,” the Commander hollered. “You need to STOP THIS! No one else needs to die. Let’s sheath our weapons and talk.”

“PISS OFF,” I yelled. “I have nothing to say to you other than, DIE, MAGGOT!”

He pointed a gnarled finger in my direction and stepped towards me from the roof of the next building, his voice rising above the fires and ash, the smell of gun powder and the echo of explosions, the cries of the apocalyptic warriors in the streets below. “YOU made a commitment. YOU chose to make an agreement. NO ONE forced you. It is time for you to keep your end of the bargain.” He then started to unbutton his khaki green shirt. Sliding a hand up inside to a shoulder, he pushed the garment from one arm then the other, letting it ripple to the tin roof. And there he stood, shirtless, his powerful, muscled chest fully exposed, the bulging pecs and rippled abdomen coursing with riverlets of sweat that glistened in the sunlight like diamonds.

“STOP THAT,” I yelled. I pointed my missile launcher at him.

He stepped closer, slowly, almost prowling, his sultry blue eyes locked on mine, a sweaty blond tassel of hair draped like a curtain across one eye. His biceps bulged as he clenched and released his fists. He moved closer and closer to me. I slipped back, lining my missile launcher up on him as my eyes trailed to his hands which drifted to his belt. “We don’t need weapons.” His voice was low, deep, slow, like a raunchy whisper as he dropped his belt.

I gasped as I lost my breath in an exhale so deep and hard, it felt like someone had hit me in the solar plexus. My lips parted and I faintly panted as I dropped my missile launcher, the loud thunk reverberating as it hit the floor. I eased back down the steps until my back hit a wall, watching him unblinking as he coolly continued to tread closer to me, as though in slow motion. Sunlight back-lit him as he descended the stairs, giving his entire personage an ironic halo. I started to quiver. “You can’t make me,” I insisted. “I have a right to change my mind.” I tried to keep my voice strong but there was no hiding the trembling in my words.

“You have a responsibility. It is time to make good on your commitment.” His voice was calm, cool, collected. Calculating, cunning, clever. What other “C” words can I find that would work here?!

“I can’t right now,” I pleaded. “I don’t have time! Now is not a good time!”

He finally stood right in front of me. Raising an arm, he leaned in, bracing one hand against the wall alongside my head, his face so close to mine, I could feel his breath warming my mouth. My tummy tightened and I felt an aching tingle move down into my thighs as adrenaline surged through my veins, causing my head to spin. My legs went so weak I thought I might collapse.

“THIS IS CHEATING,” I whimpered.

He smiled then brushed my lips with his own and murmured, “Welcome to the weekend!”

I tried to stamp a foot but it was a feeble effort. I cried out, “But I don’t WANT to dance! I want to play Fallout 4 and kill things and blow shit up!”

He ran his full moist lips up my cheek to my neck and up to my ear, then whispered, “Bad luck. You are on the lineup. You made a commitment. Now log off here, log into Second Life, get to the club and stop mucking around.” With that, he stepped back, grabbed me by one arm and twirled me, smacked my ass. “MOVE IT, GIRL!” It was an order.

“Fine,” I huffed through gritted teeth. “But you still cheated! Asshole!”

So off I went to the show. Before we take a loving look at the show, let us bestow a Golden Tweezers Award. Tonight’s Golden Tweezers Award is a duet, complimentary posts that work together like chocolate and peanut butter. Tonight’s winners are: GREENIE AND QUEENIE! Ou I made a rhyme! Actually that is Kelly and Red or something like that, I don’t use display names so I see… GREENIE AND QUEENIE!! For this bit of hysteria:

[17:15] Queenie Acacia: Pea is touching bums
[17:16] Greenie Flanagan: waits for her turn

LOL! CONGRATULATIONS QUEENIE AND GREENIE!

NOW for a look at the show. People are unwell, the flu is rampant and thus, the show was more quiet that usual. But even the ill soldiered on and this is a sample of what went down:

9 to 5 – Dolly Parton
Hailie and company decided it was time to show them who the real boss is!

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
Antonio and I watched Dumplin’ a few weeks ago and since then I got this song stuck in my head. Plus it kinda relates to my work life (and I am sure many other people feel the same) working in offices for many years and all the stuff that goes on lol

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Well, upon setting up costume assistant, I asked Antonio to set up a folder and just call it ropes, ok so that worked but I find out when we run through the set that I got tied up in ropes too! lol I have no idea where they came from!! *coughs* So of course we had to change the name of the folder to not include the word rope as every time it would tie me up! Antonio found it quite amusing and I think he preferred that I got tied up, so as to save him some time later lol.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
This is a bit a fun but also reminiscent of my secretary years and how it felt to work in that office at times.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
Just I hope you enjoy it!

Dr. West is a close friend of mine!

1. Why did you choose this song to create a dance to? What was your inspiration?
I have a whole folder of Faderhead that I am working through. I love Faderhead. I want to stalk him! His voice undoes me….

2. What were the particular challenges you dealt with when creating this dance?
Well, Web build the set and it is always a challenge when working with someone else, getting the visions to blend, explaining what we have in mind. I think it came out exceptionally well. I really love both the sets.

3. What does this dance mean to you? Is it a bit of fun, or is there a deeper meaning?
It is a dance based on H.P. Lovecraft’s Herbert West–Reanimator short story. H.P. Lovecraft is the Father of Zombies. I love zombies.

4. Is there anything you would like others to know about your dance?
I am the epitome of DEAD SEXY, LOL! I am the sexiest corpse. How I love being wretched and horrible.
