Steampunk Compilation On Pandora Radio

A fascinating aethernet service, Pandora Radio, allows one to fashion a customized musical station according to ones preferences.  One simply needs to seed the station with a selection of songs or artists and their “Music Genome Project” matches similar works based on a vast variety of descriptive criteria. 

Here is a link to the “Steampunk” station I created. It is seeded with the following artists with the advice and suggestions of several of my acquaintances and friends on plurk:

  • Abney Park
  • Beats Antique
  • Evanescence
  • Ghoultown
  • Lacuna Coil
  • Muse
  • The Cruxshadows
  • The Dresden Dolls
  • The Klezmatics
  • Vagabond Opera
  • Voltaire
  • Within Temptation

Several other worthy artists were also recommended, but alas Pandora did not yet have them in their libraries.

Fantastic Fun On a Monday Night

Well, I was having too much fun at my rezday party and forgot to take pictures.  Instead I have a shot of the amazing crowd who gathered last night for our First DJ + Trivia event.  Miss Cerise Blackheart provided a solid two hours of steampunk musical selections to backdrop the wonderfully challenging trivia questions prepared and presented by Mr Touma Yoshikawa.

Prizes for the evening were two lovely art pieces supplied by Miss CathyWyo1 Haystack from her vast collection.  Those and many more can be seen at her display galleries on Thistle Hill and on the roof of Steampunk Adventures

The Tiger Turns Two

On this day two years ago he arose from the fiery bowel of hell this demon ..arising from the sulphur, fire and brimstone to blaze a molten hot trail through the electrromagnetic confines of Ssecond Life, broke free from the bonds of the electromagnetic cyberaethers, bringing forth .. mystery and intrique..what is the truth behind his denomic animal attraction …

OK, a little over the top maybe?  Well, some things call for a little flash and dash.

Today, 1 Sept, 2010, your friendly neighborhood tiger celebrates his 2nd rezday.

Some of my friends decided to throw a party for me.  So, come on down to the Empress tonight, starting at 6PM SLT we have two great LIVE shows.  Around 8PM  Miss Reghan Straaf will take over the stream and entertain us with her fabulously eclectic collection of musical selections.  I’ll have some pictures to post afterward.

Another Astounding Evening at the Empress of the Aethers

Last night we were pleased to host two outstanding performances.  Miss Riverstone was soulful, sultry, wimsical and fun.  Comments floating around the room included, “gorgeous voice,”  “she could sing me to sleep and I’d be in heaven,”  “she’s like Rosemary Clooney.

After Andy we had the great privilege to host Patrick LaSalle and Beth Odets.  This spirited and talented couple requested a chance to play at the Empress earlier that day and we were so pleased to be able to accomodate them.

We had a wonderful energetic crowd the entire evening.  Thank you all so much for your support and appreciation.  Our full week of excellent entertainment continues tonight with EricSteffen Mistwalker at 6PM and Strum Diesel at 7PM.

A fine time was enjoyed by all.

Last night, Monday 2 August, we had our usual bi-weekly Mix-it-Up Monday soirre with His Grace Lucien Bretano supplying the musical entertainment.  His Grace?  Yes indeed.  His lovely wife, Tehanu Marenwolf just recently purchased some additional  land, thus launching  them into the ranks of the Caledon peerage as Their Graces The Duke and Duchess of the Wind.   Therefore, last night was something of a celebration of thier ascendancy and we were delighted  that several notable persons paid a visit to the Empress, some for the first time.

A full house enjoys DJ Lucien's musical mix.

Among those attending I saw Their Graces Middlesea (Wrath Constantine and Aevalle Galicia), His Imperial Majesty Emperor SteelCobra Calamari, the ever gracious Miss Saffia Widdershins,  the lovely and talented Miss Magdalena Kamenev and several citizens of Austral including Captain Sir Danyell Wytchwood and his Lady.   It was by far one of the best attended Mondays we’ve had in a while.
