A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall

It's been almost a month since the big move, and The Muses Playhouse has made a successful transition to its current location in Winterfell Laudanum. Miss Serra has been very welcoming to us, and we look forward to continued success here. However, there will be one change in the Novem line-up: as of August 31, I will be stepping down as co-owner/manager of Novem: Winterfell. I had hopes that the move to a new venue would alleviate some of the stress in my SL, but as of yet the pain of the past still outweighs the rewards.

Taking my place will be a friend of Lulu's, AliceWendy Bookmite, who has worked at other clubs in SL. Viv and Lulu know that her experience and enthusiasm will bring a new and feisty twist to the Novem business, furthering what I started. I'm not quitting SL entirely, but I am taking a step back from the business end of things. I wish Lulu and Vivian much luck in whatever direction they wish to take Novem. Please direct all questions about the business of Novem to Lulu Seetan.

(BTW, i understand there is to be an establishment with a name similar to my own, in another Sim. I am not involved in that venture, but I wish them all the luck in the world.)

A Grand Opening, Indeed

The first event at our new home in Winterfell Laudanum was a wonderful success, to the point that after Mitsu Figaro's shift was over, Nova Sakigake volunteered to take over the turntables and keep the party going. Last week's theme was Villians in Literature, and the costume winners were Gregoe Zlatkis for his portrayal of the Headless Horseman; and Bela Lubezki as Harley Quinn. Great costumes you guys! This week's prize was L$500 cash money for each winner. This week's theme is NO THEME! It's CHAOS! It's a FREE-FOR-ALL! Dress accordingly! Wednesday, August 20th, 8-10pm.

The Next Chapter

When I came to Babbage Palisade so many months ago to help my sister Vivian run her brothel, I felt that the world was my oyster. We loved Steampunk and were excited to find a town that so totally captured what we liked about it. She and I commissioned a remarkable building, modeled after one by H.H. Richardson. As the months went on, our plans for Novem morphed and changed, from a burlesque theatre to, finally, a location for weekly themed entertainment. All the while, the escort business was firmly part of the plan. However, because of one thing and another (complaints from neighbors, building code violations, etc.), it was only a matter of time before the business changed its face. Vivian has busied herself with other projects, and our younger sister, Lulu Seetan, stepped up to co-host the Wednesday events with either Darien Mason or Gematria SteelGears.

Darien has gone through some changes, his own self: you might have noticed that he looks a bit younger than he did a month ago. It seems that the good Doctor had some sort of run-in with...a space-time continuum? A wormhole? I have no idea what happened to him, but for the time being he's a precocious 13 year old boy, full of youthful enthusiasm and bad judgement. I suffered the repercussion of this venturesome cocktail myself when the boy blew up our landmark building. Coming home one evening, instead of finding our magnificent stone structure, I saw a ramshackle wharf building filled with crates, barrels, and rum. This turned out to be fortuitous, however, as the theme for this week's event was "Piracy on the Palisade!"

For the event this past Wednesday, Gabrielle Riel herself filled in for the vacationing Mitsu Figaro, and man did she play some tunes. I had requested reggae/Caribbean/Latin music, and she did not disappoint. The crowd had a great time. The Best Pirate prizes went to Jenny Merryman for Best Female, and to Huntington Albatros for Best Male. Thanks to Fauve Aeon and Star Fairymeadow, respectively, for supplying this week's prizes.

After the prizes were given out, my staff and I were surprised by a turn in the normally pleasant demeanor of the men of the S.S. Seraph. Captain Maelstorme Smythe ordered August Dayafter and Gregoe Zlatkis to take me, Lulu, and Gematria up to their ship. We were manhandled (yay!) and forced to board their ship, but were then unceremoniously dumped at Winterfell Laudanum--no ransom demand, no plundering--just thrown overboard! Hmph.

But Winterfell turns out to be just what the Novem family needs right now: a quiet, beautiful spot to offer up our particular brand of entertainment (dancing, girls, and dancing girls...), in a Sim that does not have quite as many stifling regulations. I enjoyed our stay in Babbage, but the time had come to move on. And now, finding ourselves really liking the pirate motif, we put up a small tavern that fits this theme nicely. It even has a "naughty room" upstairs!

So, come by to look at our new digs, toss back an ale or two, drink some rum, and play with a strumpet. I think you'll enjoy the change of scenery. (Until I get the SLurl for the location, IM me or Lulu Seetan in world for more information.

OH! Next week's theme, on Wednesday, August 13th, from 8-10pm SL, is "VILLIANS--on the stage, and off the page!"

Piracy on the Palisade!

The day has come--Piracy on the Palisade is upon us! Avast ye blowholes and shiver me chum bucket! Have we got booty for you! In addition to the usual demented trivia questions (worth $L100 each), we have prizes for best pirate costumes. Best Female Pirate wins a beautiful pirate dolly key created for us by Fauve Aeon of All Dolled Up. "A key," you ask? Oh, it's not just any key--it's called "Double Jeopardy" and, according to Fauve, it is loaded with "pyrate goodness!" It has a drop-down menu with 8 custom winds, ticks on and off, and comes with a configurable note card to allow permission for people to wind the Doll. It tattles in chat when unauthorized users touch it, and "gives them a shock!" It will be offered for sale in the main ADU shop for L$500.

Prize for Best Male Pirate is a L$500 gift card donated by Star Fairymeadow of Wretched Dollies. You can see her enchanting merchandise in world at her shops in Winterfell Absinthe, or take a look at her online shop at SLExchange.

So, haul yer patooties to Novem: The Muses Playhouse tonight, 8-10pm SL. The parcel has been transformed into a tavern after a mishap with the original building (*growls* Thank you Darien...grrr...). Just tp to the usual location. Contact Lulu Seetan, MissLily Nightfire, or QliSteel Gears (aka Gematria SteelGears) for a ride if you need one.

Piracy on the Palisade!

Lily & Lulu's Pirate Fete, this Wednesday, August 6th, from 8-10pm SL, at Novem: The Muses Playhouse. All are welcome: Pirates, wenches, stowaways, monkeys, dim-witted noblemen--all will be allowed entry (however we make no guarantees as to your safety). Come for the mussels, stay for the clams! Don't like shellfish?--try the snails! Prizes for Best Pirate--Male and Female. Trivia! Dancing! Reckless abandon! Bring your friends--I'll give a special prize to the person who brings the most guests! This week's music is being provided by Gabrielle Riel herself! Co-hostess are once again Lulu Seetan and Gematria SteelGears. Let the carnage begin!

My pirate name is:

Calico Mary Vane
Often indecisive, you can't even choose a favorite color. You're apt to follow wherever the wind blows you, just like Calico Jack Rackham, your namesake. You tend to blend into the background occaisionally, but that's okay, because it's much easier to sneak up on people and disembowel them that way. Arr!
