Newness

Well old news, new news, not horrible!

Good news is, we have pictures from our Saturday show, I just have to organize them like I like and put them for you all to see!

Bad news is, we are moving Paramount again. I know, already? Why? Well for the past few weeks, our sim has been griefed more than we'd like. Not being able to get someone from management to restart the sim like we'd want... anyway, we are moving once again. Thank goodness no shows going on until the new year! :)

Also we don't have time for the art gallery... so sadly we are closing that, but adding a pond! ;D

Dance into Christmas Sneek Peek

OUR CHRISTMAS is coming up shortly! Tomorrow infact!! YAY! So here is a short song to get stuck into your head :D

You know you want one for Christmas!


I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas by Gayla Peevey

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Dec9Jb_Ac4

Here are some song facts for you to enjoy...

(from Wikipedia)
"I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" is a Christmas novelty song written by John Rox (1902–1957) and performed by Gayla Peevey (10 years old at the time) in 1953. The song peaked at number 24 on Billboard magazine's pop chart in December 1953.

Peevey was a child star (born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma), before her family moved to Ponca City, Oklahoma when she was five.[9] When released nationally by Columbia Records the song shot to the top of the charts, and the city zoo acquired a baby hippo named Matilda.

Peevey was filmed performing the song on The Ed Sullivan Show in October 1953, airing on November 15, 1953. A video of this performance is available on her website.

Thank you!

Thank you all for coming out to see our Cleo and the Czar play and the Leonard Cohen Tribute Show. No pictures are up from the show due to just being busy!! If I am able to get some screenshots from the shows or pictures I will post them.

One more Cleo

The Players are putting on a satirical play. December 3rd at 7pm slt at there new home. Cleo and the Czar is about Cleopatra and her many escapades of being a queen.

Cleopatra VII ruled ancient Egypt as co-regent for almost three decades. She became the last in a dynasty of Macedonian rulers founded by Ptolemy, who served as general under Alexander the Great during his conquest of Egypt in 332 B.C. Well-educated and clever, Cleopatra could speak various languages and served as the dominant ruler. Her romantic liaisons and military alliances with the Roman leaders Julius Caesar and Mark Antony, as well as her supposed exotic beauty and powers of seduction, earned her an enduring place in history and popular myth.

This production contains adult situations and sexual activity.

His first album, Songs of Leonard Cohen (1967), was followed by three more albums of folk music: Songs from a Room (1969), Songs of Love and Hate (1971) and New Skin for the Old Ceremony (1974). His 1977 record Death of a Ladies' Man was a move away from Cohen's previous minimalist sound. In 1979 Cohen returne…

Leonard Cohen - Seems so long ago, Nancy - 1969
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7vbH3Yzz0Q

Here are the lyrics for you to sing along

It seems so long ago,
Nancy was alone,
Looking ate the Late Late show
Through a semi-precious stone.
In the House of Honesty
Her father was on trial,
In the House of Mystery
There was no one at all,
There was no one at all.
It seems so long ago,
None of us were strong
Nancy wore green stockings
And she slept with everyone.
She never said she'd wait for us
Although she was alone,
I think she fell in love for us
In nineteen sixty one,
In nineteen sixty one.
It seems so long ago,
Nancy was alone,
A forty five beside her head,
An open telephone.
We to…

Boogie Wonderland tonight

Come join us for an evening of classy but sassy entertainment as we the PARAMOUNT GRAND THEATRE, the Paramount Players dance for you August 20th at 7pm slt, in our new show, Boogie Wonderland.

Disco is a genre of dance music containing elements of funk, soul, pop, and salsa. It achieved popularity during the mid-1970s to the early 1980s. Disco can be seen as a reaction against both the domination of rock music and the stigmatization of dance music by the counterculture during this period.

The disco sound has soaring vocals over a steady "four-on-the-floor" beat, an eighth note (quaver) or 16th note (semi-quaver) hi-hat pattern with an open hi-hat on the off-beat, and a prominent, syncopated electric bass line. In most disco tracks, string sections, horns, electric piano, and electric rhythm guitars create a lush background sound.

Country music is a genre of United States popular music that originated in the Southern United States in the 1920s.It takes its roots from the southeastern genre of United States such as folk music, Blues music, and Western music. Country music often consists of ballads and dance tunes with generally simple forms and harmonies accompanied by mostly string instruments such as banjos, electric and acoustic guitars, and fiddles as well as harmonicas. The term country music gained popularity in the 1940s in preference to the earlier term hillbilly music; it came to encompass Western music.
