Going to the chapel and…………..

MGMGAH!!!! If you are anything like me you just had a little “squee!” when you read that! Yep, our little girl is all grown up and she went and got herself hitched this week. Did you miss you invite? Nope. Being the strong-willed and busy woman that she is, Meegan Danitz eloped and married Rebecca Dembo on July 6th! Meegan Dembo has promised that there will indeed be a wedding inworld and if I have anything to do with it (and after she sees this post, I probably will not!) it will be the event of the year!

I can only assume that, in addition to their hectic schedules, Meegan and Rebecca chose to elope to have a moment of love shared between just the two of them and not with all of the nosy paparazzi. And to that I say “Awwwww…..” and “Bullsh*t!” I want pictures! Who wore what? Who gave the brides away? Was the kiss chapel appropriate? So many things that I NEED to know!! Since there were not photographers and zero details have been shared with the public, I have taken it upon myself to create how things might have played out through some possibly doctored photographs.

wedding 2Yes, I know that Meegan wearing white is a bit of a stretch, but it could have happened. Not that wearing the color of purity makes one so, but many brides attempt to pull it off!

wedding 3Possibly there was a wedding selfie taken to send to their friends and family. There better not have been since I did not receive one, but it is still a nice idea! And maybe their quickie wedding followed the wedding of Whathisname and Gina!

wedding black and whiteMaybe they got in touch with nature and had a lovely wedding in the woods and Meegan realized that wearing white was not fooling anyone!

Aside from the dresses, hair, makeup, flowers, and pretty much everything else that I wanted details on but received none, I gave a lot of thought to what their cake topper must have looked like. There are so many options, so many directions they could take that. I would like to share a few that came to mind!

cake topper3Of course there is the lovely Mrs. & Mrs. design incorporating the diamond solitaire, an image that is synonymous with weddings.

cake topper2Or perhaps they went with something a little more “Awwwww” like this lovely silhouette of, well, love!

cake topper 4Or maybe they went for the humorous side of things, though to be honest, as much as Meegan might like the idea of being put over Rebecca’s shoulder and hauled off, I doubt she has to be hauled to the altar!

caketopper1I like to believe that they went full on kitsch and a touch nerd and used the images of two completely bad ass women super heroes!

No matter what everything looked like and how the whole event played out one thing is certain; two people who love each other very much made an awesome commitment to one another and that is a beautiful thing! Join me in wishing them all of the best and keep your fingers crossed that they let me help plan the inworld wedding!

In celebration of the event we will be having a Tacky Wedding Theme at After Dark Lounge on Sunday July 10th  night during our normal show hours! Slap on your tuxedo t-shirts and terrible bride’s maids dresses and join us!

I cannot help but wonder if we might be seeing something like this from them down the road!

Deep-ish Thoughts

If you are a regular reader of this blog you will probably come across this post and think  that someone had kidnapped Tyche and taken over the writing. I can assure you that I, Tyche, am not being held captive anywhere and I am indeed the one writing this blog. I just plan on taking it down a road I do not often travel. There will be minimal joking, just heartfelt words….and some joking…..because I cannot help myself!

As many of you know, we lost an awesome person this week. Brandy Maltas, also known as Kalli Birman in Secondlife, passed away after a valiant battle with cancer. I did not know Brandy well, but I know many in SL who did and I know that she was always a tremendous supporter of the live music scene in SL The few times that I had the pleasure of making her acquaintance she was always nothing but sweet. She even contributed photos to the blog when I was just starting out writing it and had little clue what I was doing. Everyone at After Dark sends their thoughts and love to her family and loved ones. Is it a cliché? Yes, but it is also true.

Brandy’s passing got my mind churning. To a large extent many of us feel somewhat immortal until we are forced to face our mortality. I am not going to dwell on the sad. I am however going to step up on my soapbox for a second. When that feeling of immortality is coupled with the veil that existing in a virtual world can provide us, people sometimes forget that there are real people behind the cartoons that appear on the screen. Having the ability to be anything or anyone you want in SL is amazing, but it also comes with some responsibility. Am I rambling, possibly, but I promise it will all make sense eventually!

I will stop talking in circles and get to the point. I am sure that damn near everyone is familiar with “The Golden Rule” (for those well versed in the songs of Lonely Island, I am NOT referring to THAT golden rule!). At After Dark we have our own version of The Golden Rule. It is simple and to the point. Don’t be a dick! I do not often see people breaking that rule at After Dark, but it never hurts to be reminded. You never know what is around the corner and you never know when the last impression you made on someone could indeed be your final impression you ever leave on them. Feel the love, embrace it, it is all around.

I will step down from my soapbox now and offer a big hug to you all. Remember to feel the love and please, don’t be a dick.

A letter from the heart…..literally.

lifeline

Dear friends, patrons, musicians, staff, random passersby, and anyone else who might be taking the time to read this,

Allow me to introduce myself.. I am Meegan, well, a part of her at least, a very important part of her if I do say so myself! No! I am not her ass. Ugh. That ass gets all the limelight. People take pictures of it, write poetry about it, even make shirts in honor of it. It is always all about the ass, no one ever stops to think about me, the heart.

Yes, this is Meegan’s heart. Oh, you did not think a heart was capable of reaching out and writing a touching letter? Well, aren’t you just close minded! I can and I will and you will read it and possibly tear up as you do….that is IF you have a heart.

heart-attack-copyAs many of you know, I went through a rough patch lately. Meegan asks a lot of me as she puts me into most everything that she does I try my best, but recently my best was not enough. So I had a little glitch. It happens to the best of us, but when it happens to a heart it brings everything to a screeching halt.

 

I want to thank everyone for picking up my slack while I was recovering, You people, all of you, you showered Meegan with the love that I was unable to fill her with while I was down and out. You were understanding when I silenced the stage at After Dark Lounge for two weeks. You were worried about Meegan’s well being when I dropped the ball. You reached out and sent love and caring when Meegan returned. You were there to welcome live music back to the stage at After Dark once I decided to get my shit together enough for Meegan to start running shows again. You all are awesome and I think you from the bottom of my, well, from the bottom of me.Love-Letter-Heart

Meegan and I have come to an agreement. She will not work me like a slave driver and in return I will do the one job that I have to do and do it like a boss!

One last thing before I go. Yes, that ass is fierce, but never forget that were it not for me that ass would not be shaking!

Much love,
Meegan’s ♥
