Out with the old and in with the new!

The holidays are over. Whether you celebrate Christmas, Solstice, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Festivus or any other winter holiday of the sort, it is now behind us. As the new year approaches we welcome the time to look back at the past year and ahead at the fresh, new year for the blank page that it is.

First, my Christmas was very nice. Thank you for asking. I hope that your holiday celebration was just as nice. I hope that your family did not drive you any more crazy than normal, that you got everything you asked for and that you truly celebrated the real meaning of the season…….eating and drinking. Nary a Christmas has gone by since I reached drinking age that I was without a bourbon slush in my hand in the evening and a bloody mary in the morning! (I do jest and I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday season!)

Before we look at the year that is to come, I find it only fitting to look back at the year that we just passed. We lost a lot this year. I am sure I need not remind you of the countless celebrities that we lost as well as the many outstanding musicians. We also lost a friend and supporter of live music earlier this year. Brandy will always be in our thoughts. Everyone deals with loss in their own way and the musicians that grace the stage at After Dark dealt with the passing of so many talents by doing what they do best, paying tribute through the music.

I do not want to dwell on the sadness and loss that was abundant this year, especially when there was so much silliness and good times that took place this year as well! There were parties, shenanigans and good times a plenty this past year. Let us take a brief walk down memory lane!

After Dark was nominated, more than once for an Avi Choice award!

Meegan and Tyche jammed Minnesota style!

Oblee showed up more than once as a non puppet avi. Much to Ty’s dismay.

We had, at least in this bloggers opinion, the most unique and interesting griefing the night that the floor kept sliding.

Loads of new musicians rocked the stage, along with long standing regulars and those we hadn’t heard in a while!

And those are just a few of the highlights! There were endless conversations that out of context would completely boggle the mind. There were millions of dances as a result of millions of taps to Meegan’s behind. There were IMs of every type imaginable, and occasionally there were IMs accidentally typed in local, which then lead to more mind boggling conversations!

Thank you to everyone, the musicians, fans, regulars, people who randomly found After Dark in search and those who have no idea how they ended up there but had a good time anyway! Without all of you After Dark would be nothing! Join us as we embrace the newness of 2017 and make it one hell of a year!

I leave you with a picture that sums up just how awesome After Dark is. This picture was taken on September 28th. This was not a Halloween party, or October 28th when one might expect to see this kind of thing. No, this was just another night at After Dark.

‘Tis the Season!

merryThe holiday season is upon us, there is no denying that. Hell, in some places it seems to pop up right after July 4th in retail stores. With the holidays comes stress, worries and often some Bah Humbug! Whoever wrote the song “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year” must have been high! We at After Dark want to help make your holidays more tolerable. In the spirit of the season I have taken it upon myself to rework the lyrics of some of our beloved Xmas tunes and give them a bit of an After Dark spin!

In the style of “Baby It’s Cold Outside”
I just want to stay…. (Baby it’s After Dark)
Don’t want to go away….(Baby it’s After Dark)
Meegan’s fierce ass is looking fine (I think that to myself all the time)
I really should go to bed (Psh, you can sleep when you’re dead)
Instead I’m rocking the dance floor (So why not dance a little bit more?)
Eff it, I’ll stay (I knew you would anyway)
‘Cause baby it’s After Dark!
In the style of “Jingle Bell Rock”
After Dark
After Dark
After Dark rocks
People go their to shake their derrieres
Lots of great music and people to perv
Ask one to dance if you get the nerve
After Dark Lounge is the best lounge
for dancing cares away
Live musician will have you wishing
You didn’t have to work the next day
Get yourself to After Dark
Tap Meegan’s tush
And totally ignore the clock
Because After Dark
Because After Dark
Because After Dark ROCKS!
merry2
 In the style of “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”
You know Shanny and LG and Tyche and Portia. Dark Phaeton (the man dancing with no shirt on)
But do you recall….the one who pays them all?
Meegan the fierce assed owner
Runs a freaking awesome club
And if you’ve ever been there
You might already be in love
All the musicians and regulars
Think Meegan;s pretty sweet
They like to tap her bottom
So her dances will move their feet.
Meegan is a kick ass dame
with an ass to match
She greets all as they come in
and even when they crash
Ohhhhhhh
Meegan the fierce assed owner
Runs a freaking awesome club
And if you’ve ever been there
You might already be in love
In the style of “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus”
I saw LG spelling my name wrong
When I landed at After Dark last night
She knew I saw the misspell
But she said what the hell
And went on with her hosting gig
which she does so well!
pjparty
Festive as fu…..uh….fa-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, right? Need some more spirit of the season? We have sooo got you covered! This Sunday December 18th, After Dark Lounge will be hosting a Christmas PJ Party! There will be prizes for festive jammies. Linden prizes, you ask…oh HO HO HO No! Gag gift prizes. Tyche will be picking then out so chances are they will be rude, crude and possibly offensive! If that is not reason enough to be there then you might just be a Scrooge! And now I leave you with one of the most celebrated sayings of the season……
merry3

 

 

It’s the thought that counts!

we-hold-these-truths-to-be-self-evident-cover-620x350There are some very obvious truths in the world. Things that cannot be denied. You don’t have to have money to be happy. You don’t have to have a great voice to sing in the shower. You don’t have to be rich to be my girl. You don’t have to watch Dynasty to have an attitude. Just leave it all………and there I go getting off track. The point I am trying to get is that you don’t have to win the top prize to know that you are doing a good job, or to write an acceptance speech. Especially when you write for a blog!

Before the absolute silliness commences, I need to get serious. Everyone at After Dark would like to congratulate all of the nominees and  winners of the Avi Choice Awards. In case you missed the results, we didn’t take home any trophies, but we did make it to the finals for Favorite Live Venue! Thank you so much to everyone who voted and to all of our musicians and regulars that are just such damn amazing people. All of you  put us in the top 5 in a sea of amazing nominees! That alone proves how many awesome people come to After Dark Lounge!

Ok, now for the silliness!

Had After Dark Lounge won for favorite Live music venue, I would like to think that it would have gone down a little like this.

MC: “And the Avi Choice Award goes to…….After Dark Lounge!  *massive applause* After Dark Lounge is not able to join us this evening because, well, it is a building and does not get around too often. Thankfully, through the magic of modern technology we have After Dark via Skype to accept the award”

*camera pans to gigantic screen above the presenters. After Dark Lounge comes into view. A booming voice is heard*

“It is a pleasure and an honor to be receiving such a prestigious award. There are so many to thank, I do not even know where to begin! I supposed I should start with Meegan Danitz. Meegan, you are the platform beneath my structure. I would be nothing were it not for you and your love of live music and your commitment to the live music scene in Secondlife. When I was just a tiny prim I dreamed of greatness, but never did I know to what a level that greatness would reach. I am forever in debt to you Meegan and I hope I am not relegated to the deep dark recesses of your inventory anytime soon.

Next I need to think TheaDee for making me gorgeous. You gave me my first “look” and you keep me hip, hot and current. You are a miracle worker and without you I would be nothing more than an empty brick square.

Speaking of making me look pretty, LadyGlory…… You get me all dolled up for theme nights and let me pretend I am a different building for a short while. Also to LG and Portia, Dark, and Shanny, you all make people love me. You make them feel welcome from the second they land on my gorgeous hardwood floors. You make them want to come see me.

And to those regulars and all of the many musicians……It is a pleasure to have you all inside of me. I have had more musicians inside me than The Madison Square Garden and I love it.  I know that sometimes it can get a little tight inside, but those are the nights I love the most. Knowing that people are ass to elbow inside of me and enjoying the hell out of themselves make me feel completely full, not just in my cavernous space but also in my heart.

There have been times when I was scared. When I thought the music was gone and never coming back. *Cue rain and gentle sniffles* When Meegs got sick…..every year during Burn……when Meegs work was being a total douchebag…….The music always came back though, and the fans returned and my purpose as a venue was once again fulfilled.

Tyche….how could I forget Tyche? You were unexpected, loud, bossy and boisterous. For shit’s sake, you write about me damn near every week. I can admit when I am wrong and filing that restraining order against you was stupid of me and having it repealed was one of the smartest things I ever did.

Last but not least I would like to thank the higher beings…..the Lindens. Your world lets me be me. Hell, it lets me be, period! This one is for you!

Thank you all! After Dark OUT! *drops the mic*

Tell Ty Vol. 8!

everyone-seems-normal-until-you-get-to-know-themIt has been a long, long time since we ventured down the road of the silly and wonderful “getting to know you” game that is Tell Ty, but here we are again! As I was working on the blog last week is occurred to me that there was one Tell Ty response that I had sitting in my inventory that I had never posted! Shame on me!!

If you are new to the blog, or if the passing of months leaves your brain needing a refresher course, you can find the previous volumes of Tell Ty here:

TELL TY VOLUME 8!

Vol. 8 only features one person’s reply to Tell Ty. There was an awesome conversation about pictures that goes along with the reply. When I send out the requests for replies to Tell Ty I request a picture of the person I am featuring. For most this is a very simple request, but for one specific person it was a little more of a struggle to decide which picture to use. Behold, the awesome conversation!

SaraMarie Philly: Does the pic need to be square?
Tyche Szondi: nope
SaraMarie Philly: How about circle?
Tyche Szondi: works just fine!
SaraMarie Philly: Can it be shaped like a rabbit?
Tyche Szondi: I prefer a goat, but a rabbit will do
SaraMarie Philly: What if the picture IS of a rabbit?
Tyche Szondi: Hahahaha!
Tyche Szondi: Can you give me a rabbit with your face photoshoped onto it?
SaraMarie Philly: Do you want my whole body, or just my head?
Tyche Szondi: Whatever, I am not picky                                                              SaraMarie Philly: How about I send you about 50-75 pictures of myself and you can choose the cutest one.
Tyche Szondi: That works too. Or a rabbit, either way.
SaraMarie Philly: SL kinda squished me into being a “little person”
Tyche Szondi: I can desquish
SaraMarie Philly: If I send lots of pics, will you make me a shrine?
SaraMarie Philly: I mean…..”wall”
Tyche Szondi: If by shrine you mean print them all off and hang them in my closet…then yes!
SaraMarie Philly: yes yes yes, perfect                                                                         Then this picture was sent:

saramarie in pain

SaraMarie Philly: This one I kinda look in pain. That’s good, right? Very….musical.
Tyche Szondi: I can feel it                                                                                            Then this picture was sent:

saramarie face tattoo

Yes children, “back in the day” After Dark Lounge was known as After Dark at Rhi’s Poem.

SaraMarie Philly: Here’s one of my new tatoo.
Tyche Szondi: THAT is dedication to the venue
SaraMarie Philly: With this tatoo, RHI’s can never fire me.
SaraMarie Philly: Or change my timeslot.
Tyche Szondi: Hahaha!
Tyche Szondi: I might have to use that one                                                        But then…then this picture was sent and all other pictures were forgotten!

SaraMarie Bunny

Tyche Szondi: And we have a winner!!!!!
Tyche Szondi: OMG, I just horse laughed
SaraMarie Philly: I don’t know…..Do I look too fat?
SaraMarie Philly: ahahhaa
SaraMarie Philly: and hairy?
Tyche Szondi: You are rocking it. not everyone can pull it off, but you own it!
SaraMarie Philly: hahaha OK awesome
SaraMarie Philly: At least SL squished me to be thinner instead of the other way.
SaraMarie Philly: Nobody wants to be a chubby bunny
Tyche Szondi: I might have to make a photo montage!
SaraMarie Philly: in your closet you mean?
Tyche Szondi: Everywhere
SaraMarie Philly: hahahahaa

Any person willing to photoshop their face onto a bunny and turn themselves into a meme definitely deserves to not have their Tell Ty reply forgotten! So….without further ado, here it is!

Saramarie Philly’s Tell Ty!

1. Tell me something random.
I really like buttered popcorn flavored jelly beans, though I rarely buy them. I should go buy some.
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.
I love to laugh. 
3. Tell me something that not everyone knows about you.
While I have played keyboard, violin and guitar in my shows and sung a variety of different styles including opera, my primary instrument for the first 4 years of music college was the clarinet.

WOOHOO! There you have it! Another volume of Tell Ty is in the books!

Ty’s Choice Awards 2016!!

Disclaimer:
This is not meant to belittle the Avi Choice Awards. Like everything else that I write, this is written in the spirit of silliness and fun!

TCALadies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! Children of all ages!

Oh wait….wrong pomp for the circumstance!

**DRUMROLL**

Booming announcer voice: “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the second annual Ty’s Choice Awards! And now…your hostess with the mostest, Tyche Szondi!”

Thank you disembodied booming voice! Welcome everyone to the second annual Ty’s Choice Awards! Can you believe it has already been a year? Can you believe that I have been permitted by management to host again this year?!?

Speaking of management, we are thrilled to have the marvelous Meegan Danitz in attendance this year, Following last year’s series of “wardrobe malfunctions” she has decided to make sure that nothing of that nature will occur this year. I am sure you all got a good look at her on the red carpet, I honestly did not know that someone could look so stunning in a full length mumu! mumumeegan

Ahhh……Ty’s Choice….MY Choice…the only award that is given completely arbitrarily based on the opinion of one person, There is not panel of judges, there is no selection committee, there is just me and whatever strikes my fancy! It happens to be my most favorite awards show of the year, and I hope it is in at least your top ten!

But I digress! Some of the awards require a bit of explanation this year, Why you ask? Because I happen to like catchy names and when one fits and makes sense in my head I realize that it might not make so much sense to everyone else. If they do immediately make sense to you, you might want to seek professional help! Oh! And for those of you who are paying attention, you might have noticed that the award itself has changed this year. I certainly think it is a better representation of the award’s namesake!

On with the show!

As was the format last year, I will not be boring you with long-winded attempts at making you laugh or over produced musical numbers. We are here to find out who won!  Now, When you read the list you need to read them in an announcer’s voice. “And the TCA for ________ goes to_____!” Extra points if you read them aloud, in public and get strange looks from people around you!

congratulations-4308

Let’s hear a round of applause for all of our winners! Remember, there are not losers at After Dark Lounge…..well, there was that one guy that one time, but that is what the “block” feature is for!

The after party is calling and the booze is flowing. I must apologize for the lack of red carpet pictures this year. It came down to hire a photographer or have an open bar and I think that we can all agree which if the more important of the two!

Much love and many congratulations!

~Ty

It is an honor just to be nominated…..

……but it would be total kick ass to win!

AWARD

Unfortunately, this award is not one of the Avi Choice award categories!

The crew at After Dark is honored and humbled to announce that the club has received not one, but TWO nominations for the Avi Choice Awards! Not only that, but our amazing owner, her royal fierceness, Miss Meegan Danitz has been nominated as well!

After Dark is nominated for Favorite Stage or Theater Set Design, because, let’s face it, the place is gorgeous, warm, inviting and the perfect setting for spending an evening listening to your favorite live music! The venue is also up for Favorite Venue, Sr (in operation more than a year). Are they calling After Dark old? Heck yes it has been around (Not “around the block”, c’mon people! This is serious biness!) and in a place where live venues come and go it really is a great honor to be among those that have stood the test of time!

The lovely and talented Miss Meegan Danitz is nominated for Favorite Dance Choreographer. She very modestly claims that she does not belong in that category, but if you have ever seen her perform on the stage, you know that she most definitely does!

We are also pleased to announce that several of our regular performers have been nominated as well!

Max Kleene: Favorite Acoustic Singer, Favorite Rock Singer, Favorite Pop Singer, Favorite Male Performer

Sassy Nitely: Favorite Acoustic Singer, Favorite Female Performer

Vinnie (Acoustic Rhapsody): Favorite Acoustic Singer, Favorite Rock Singer, Favorite Pop Singer, Favorite Original Songs Artist, Favorite Instrumentalist

Happy New Year!

New year crowdAs the holidays draw to a close and the start of a new year is just around the corner, we at After Dark Lounge would like to take a moment to thank everyone for making this past year a wonderful success!

To the musicians who grace our stage:

You keep the crowds coming! We are completely spoiled with the amount of good music and song writing that we have at our fingertips in SecondLife. We thank you for choosing to share your talents on the After Dark Lounge stage! We are both proud to offer the best talent on the grid and humbled that you all chose to play on our stage!

To our audiences:

Not to sound too braggy, but we have some of the absolute best audiences in all of SecondLife! Friendly, chatty, damn good looking, just all around great people! The fact that you keep coming back tells us that we are doing something right! With so much musical talent available at the click of a mouse, we are grateful that you choose to spend your time with us. Thank you all for your continued support, your fantastic tips and your pretty/handsome faces!

new year quote

Thank you seems so inadequate, as all of you, musicians, regulars, friends, newcomers, have made After Dark Lounge what it is and keep it going!

Have a safe and happy New Year!

They’re Baaaaack!

You might have noticed that the stage at After Dark was very quiet this week. At least we hope that you noticed! After Dark was extra dark this week because Meegan and Tyche were tearing it up at BURN2, Guerilla Burlesque style!

camp roguery_001

                                                                 Roguery Camp

It was wonderful to see many of our After Dark regulars out and about on the playa, enjoying everything that BURN2 has to offer, and especially at the shows that we were performing in! If you did not get a chance to make it to BURN2 this year, you owe it to your self to make it next year. It is unlike anything else in Secondlife and it definitely needs to be experienced first hand as pictures and retellings do not do it justice! Speaking of pictures, perhaps you would enjoy seeing some of what Meegan and Ty were up to.

The photographer for After Dark’s blog failed pretty miserably at getting pictures of the live performers, but in her defense she did have a LOT on her plate this past week. Cut her some slack! After Dark regulars Voodoo Shilton, Funkyfreddy Republic, Saramarie Philly and Twinghost Ronas all gifted their music to BURN2…….yet the only picture that slacker photog managed to get was this one! TGBURN_005In addition to the live music and the stage shows there were tons of other events that took place at Roguery Camp. Interactive dance sessions, themed parties that included Tutu Tuesday and Corsets and Cigars and loads of other good times! Just a few more pics of the good times for those who missed it. Not to rub it in or anything, but yea, it was awesome!

                                                              Burn baby, burn!

So that is where the week went and why the stage at After Dark was silent, aside from a third of a Saramarie Philly set when they decided to restart the sim! But like the title says “They’re baaaaack!”. And what do you think of when you hear that? It had better be Poltergeist! Halloween is right around the corner and we will be celebrating it at After Dark this Tuesday starting at 7pm! Throw on your best Halloween garb and have a chance at winning prizes that will be awarded each hour! Four hours of live music featuring Twinghost, Steely Decosta, Funkyfreddy, and Oblee! Come to welcome us back from BURN2 and scare the pants off us*!

*There are no guarantees that the staff of After Dark will be wearing pants.

 

Ty’s Choice Awards

 

 

Disclaimer:
This is not mean to belittle the Avi Choice Awards. Like everything else that I write, this is written in the spirit of silliness and fun! RS90s-cup-trophy*DRUMROLL*

Booming announcer voice: “Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the first annual Ty’s Choice Awards! And now…your hostess for the evening, Tyche Szondi!”

Thank you! Thank you! You can all sit now, there is no need for all of that. There will be plenty of time to show your undying love and appreciation for me at the after party!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the first annual Ty’s Choice Awards! This is an award show like no other! There are no nominees. There are no losers. Rather than having our regular musicians vying against one another for some silly statuette, I have taken it upon myself to give each of them an award in a category completely tailored just for them! Another way the Ty’s Choice Awards are better than other awards shows is the lack of long winded acceptance speeches. (Unless any of the artists would like to send me an acceptance speech, in which case I will gladly feature it on the website!)

One final thing before we hand out the awards. Unfortunately, Meegan Danitz cannot be with us this evening. As some of you may have witnessed before the show while on the red carpet, Meegan was told by security that if she had one more nip slip she would be banned from the show and not allowed back on the premises until the show was over. Upon hearing this, Meegan untied her wrap dress and walked the rest of the red carpet with her dress hanging open and all of her lady bits showing. At the end of the red carpet she was taken into custody. We wish her the best and look forward to seeing her at the after party!

Now on with the show! Screw the silly jokes between awards, and the music numbers. Let’s give these things out! Now, When you read the list you need to read them in an announcer’s voice. “And the TCA for ________ goes to_____!” Extra points if you read them aloud and get strange looks from people around you!
