Guerilla Burlesque performs this kind of act every friday night on Idle Rogue at midnight.
Tuesday, November 13, 2012
November 4th- November 25th 2012
Spend a little time walking through the cherry trees at Idle Rogue. Head east from the water stage and enjoy the pretty surroundings and the work of our three featured artists. You can purchase any of the works by right-clicking and paying the easel vendors.
Musical guests throughout the month will include JordanReyne Deezul, Rara Destiny, POL Arida, Saintess Larnia and Lisa Brune, performing on The Falls stage on Fridays throughout the month
Featured Artist: Chewie Quixote
Chewie is one of the star performers of Guerilla Burlesque and started taking photographs ( screen captures ) as a history of the troupe's activities as well as a visual record of the acts that have been performed. Chewie was inspired to improve the quality of her work by the works of Lingual Markus, Senjata Witt and Graham Collinson. Her work has received quiet praise from mentors and fans alike.
In addition to her work as an interpretive dancer and a photographer, Chewie is also gaining a solid reputation as a machinimatographer.
Chewie's works can be found at DeviantArt, KoinUp and YouTube
Featured Artist: Kavisha Quan
I wanted to make pictures that were more than the usual family snaps, or the often-seen romantic shots.
The beauty of buildings, the beings and the environment.
In this series of pictures I have taken pictures from outside of Second Life. These are from the visually stunning but sombre game of Esther, with a favorite thrown in for all you Guild Wars fans.
You see in my work combinations of these things, visual beauty, architecture and the solitude of gaming in a social world.
The angle is the thing... my eye loves what it sees."
Featured Artist: Autumn Teardrop
"I've been taking photographs in SL for a while now, because I love catching those beautiful moments and people that I see. I feel my strengths are in spur-of-the-moment shots, especially at live events or social gatherings. I've never done anything even remotely visual in RL, so it's a nice escape, I get to do something different. :)
I do not currently take wedding shots or arranged live events, sorry, my RL makes it a bit difficult to commit to specific times, as is being in a weird time zone (New Zealand). But if I'm present at something, I'll generally be busy taking random shotsof people and things (and handing them out if they're any good).
I've got a little gallery where you can see some of my work. Feel free to drop in and have a look some time."
Scheduled Events:We had scheduled an opening event featuring musical performances by Rara Destiny and Jordan Reyne, but Linden Lab had other ideas for that night. Since we have scheduled concerts for the Art Walk Stage throughout November, we figured we'd just march on. Come along to any of the friday morning concerts and enjoy some of the best live performances in Second Life while you soak up the Art Walk Atmosphere.

This event will be presented from 12am on Saturday, October 29th, and you can get help converting that time at the very easy-to-use World Time Converter. The lineup, announced today, is:
12am Jordan Reyne: well known in Second Life, award-nominated steampunk siren Jordan Reyne performs a polished fusion of dark folk, industrial found sound and acoustic melodies. Her rich vocals convey edgy tales and noir observations with an easy grace that has taken her across the globe to reach audiences from all walks of life
1am Amphibic: "quite dark and lyrically understated", "quirky songwriter meets orchestra" ... you can get a good feel for the material at Amphibic's Facebook Player
2am - Maxdmyz described as focused, tight, and hypnotic, Maxdmyz are a genuine industrial metal outfit (a rare thing in Second Life) about to show online audiences the relentless power that's causing all the talk
This is an extraordinary infusion of genuine talent for Second Life. Thanks are owed to Jordan Reyne, Factory Nation, Secret Rage and Anek Fuchs for their assistance in presenting this event.

|Is it just being in your undies that draws you out? One of our best attended theme nights recently, and a lot of fun too. Maybe we should dispense with themes and just have Undies Night :-)|
I'll post more after the meeting, so that I can report any astounding developments (I jest) as well as the few upcoming things I do know about. Hope to see you there, you'd be very welcome

We think the triple bill of Guerilla Burlesque, Lisa Brune and Loreen Aldrin will be a delicious strong brew, irresistably flavoursome and good for your soul. Join us from midnight in the Guerilla Burlesque Theatre at Idle Rogue, this Friday, July 7th, 2012.

At midnight the team from Guerilla Burlesque opens proceedings with their high-energy dance revue. This week featuring performances from beloved stars Jewellah Magic, Chewie Quixote, SexyS Quintessa, Kiriam MacIntyre, Sho Kyong, and Chucci BigBear, doors open from 11:45pm to allow you to met with friends, find your seat and enjoy the ambience of a live stage show.
At 1am, delightful Lisa Brune returns to Idle Rogue. The dizzying combination of her rich voice, alternative classics and a stunning avatar proved incredibly popular at her first outing on the IR stage, and we look forward to more from this fabulously cool performer
At 2am Idle Rogue favourite, Jordan Reyne, joins us for a performance that melds folk noir, powerful alto vocals and industrial found sound with an accoustic and loop musicality that is unique and original. Jordan Reyne is a premier performer whose recorded works are award-nominated and whose real life resume includes the legendary Glastonbury Festival.
At 3am Kristopher Walpole returns to Idle Rogue after an absence of some months. Kris's original music is the stuff of classic indie ballads - wistful themes, clever guitar and a voice that reminds you of a Saturday morning comedown. It's glorious alt yearning and the perfect finish to an amazing evening at Idle Rogue

Chewie Quixote made a lovely video from the friday theme night party this week. If you're not joining us for this weekly event, you're missing out on some warm and funny times with a crew who are always welcoming. It's on every Friday at 12am (that's midnight thursday, or hey, look over there to your right, it's a calendar!) and the Prince Of Rogues, Curti5 Rexen, oversees a playlist that is always a blast.

I believe in this endeavour. I am personally supportive of any venture that makes use of the immersive nature of virtual worlds to facilitate greater self-awareness. That is what I, personally, have gained from Second Life, and I see daily examples of ways other people use the medium to teach and to learn. It's no stretch for me to see how autistic residents could use the medium to learn life and social skills, in addition to gaining access to good quality support services, and that is the endeavour Marcus Morris and Guardian Spirit are proposing.
This Saturday night, Guerilla Burlesque will perform a special event, one-off show in support of Guardian Spirit, who will simultaneously hold a first-life event to raise funds and awareness. The show, under the direction of Curti5 Rexen, will feature some of your most-loved performers in a themed program full of dazzling effects and clever routines. Please set aside time to join us from 7pm on Saturday night for this wonderful cause.
You can see footage of the Guardian Spirit sim here, and read Marcus Morris' interview with his local newspaper, The Billings Gazette.

LizAday Solo was the first to come to me and say "we need to do something"; hot on her heels was G.Bevin, and while I was worrying about compromising Jordan's dignity, it was G who rang her and said "would this help?". Without them, the Benefit For Jordan Reyne would not have happened, and as most of you now know, it was an outstanding success, and will make a real difference to Jordan's current, fairly dire, circumstances.
G also ran up the webpage, with the buttons to make purchases and donate directly. We wanted people who could help to do so in a way that was immediate, and that bypassed the handling of people in the middle. For those who would donate in world, we wanted something simple and transparent, so that you could all see that the money went where we said it would go, as soon as possible after you donated it. Hence "Rogue Fretwerk" now outed as my alt :-)
I'm going to post the thanks to the next entity as his avatar, though I would be overjoyed if people in his real life know how kind and thorough he is. Dragonfly Live brought in several performers. I was schooled hard last time I did a charity event about asking people to perform for donations, and didn't want to do it this time. I asked in the most general way possible for people who wanted to give their time and ebergy, and I want to thank Mel Cheeky, Pol Arida, Russell Eponym, G, Liz, and Loreen Aldrin for their immediate generosity and response. But Joel (Dragonfly), filled out the rest of the bill with really talented, generous musicians who joined with the others to make the event not just successful, but a joy to participate in. I'd be thrilled to death to have attended that concert in real life, it was as good as any festival you can imagine (okay, maybe not soundwave, but horses for courses lol).
I need to thank, individually, and specifically, Russell Eponym, Mel Cheeky, Marvin, Pol Arida, Brendan Shoreland, Lisa Brune, Rara Destiny, Dragonfly, Loreen Aldrim, PT Beardmore, Lyrica Acoustic and LizAday Solo for their thoughtful compassion and their professional courtesy. Some of those people are not on facebook, or are not on my facebook (lookin' at YOU Russell Eponym), so if you know them please let them know how immensely grateful I am. Whether or not you know them, please support them, go to their gigs and tell your friends about them - they deserve it, they rock.
Important to thank is Thea Dee and the army of host-assistants she brought to the fray, ready and schooled for war lol. You guys made it fun and charming, I loved working with you. Thanks also to Cricket Palianta for shouldering the load in her super-heroine way - you don't know how important a break is til you haven't had one for seven hours! This event not only had the best musicians on the grid, but the best hosts, and it showed. I was so proud to be amongst you.
Last but never ever least, big love to my personal wailing wall, Lingual Markus, who never lets me down, and Shippy Creations who always builds me up, as well as the Guerilla Burlesque team and the mighty Idle Rogue. You guys are the net, and I'd be splattered guts without you.
Thank you all, on my behalf, and on behalf of Jordan, who will, I am sure, thank you herself when she is able to get decent access to you all. It's estimated we raised over 900 pounds - I draw the line at learning english money, I think it's enough that I master six clocks without lasting damage. This is a lot of money, though probably not if you have to pay a rental bond and rent in advance with it. We made a difference, and we showed Jordan how well she is loved across the globe. Congratulations, and again, always, and with more than a little astonishment - thank you.

|You can donate directly, or purchase albums at http://idlerogue.org/jordan/ ... but you'd be missing, potentially, the concert of the year|
Friends of Jordan Reyne are gathering in Second Life this Saturday, April 7, to raise funds to help Jordan get back on her feet.
Due to a series of unpredictable personal disasters, the things Jordan had been able to count on as part of a stable and nourishing life broke down, with the eventual result that, this very week, Jordan is homeless, without income, and has suffered losses to her personal belongings and equipment. And when we watched her put her beloved dog into foster care, some people thought: enough was enough. Those people, generous musicians and friends who have grown to love Jordan, decided to offer what they could - the proceeds from their work. To help.
A look at the lineup will show you that this concert will feature some of the very best live performers in Second Life. From the dynamic thumper Pol Arida to the cutting-edge alt maestro Dragonfly, to glam rocketeer LizAday Solo, every act is an outstanding example from our thriving live music industry.
What we need now is you. You and all your friends. Bring a few bucks along to the Benefit for JordanReyne at Idle Rogue in Second Life. It is the single best live music event you will see in Second Life this year. It will be a fun show, built out of love, as the best ones always are.
All donations will be collected and paid to Jordan via her Second Life account. You can also donate to her directly, via Paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org), or purchase her albums to contribute. Use the link below to access the Benefit's home page.
Throughout my time working with Jordan Reyne, I have come to know that her particular gift is to shine a light on a dark place, and show us that everything will be okay - that it's okay to yell, and it's okay to howl, and it's okay to curse. That there's darkness everywhere, but you're okay if you can look it in the eye.
It's our turn. Jordan needs some light. Tag, you're it.

We have been approached by Marcus Morris, the founder of Guardian Spirit, to assist with raising funds for the sim he runs using the Second Life Platform. Marcus, himself on the autism spectrum, has established a sim and has effective plans to develop it as a virtual training facility for autistic clients. It is envisaged that the Guardian Spirit facility will assist with:
- Effective training of social and employment skillsDeveloping pride, self-confidence and self-esteem in our autistic clients
- Easy, fun and affordable virtual training and counseling
- Precision employment training and placement
- Real world growth for the autistic client through a virtual setting
Guardian Spirit is a registered Non-Profit organisation. Because of the many and varied ways avatars are asked to support charities in Second Life, Marcus went to some lengths to provide evidence of Guardian Spirit's first life presence and non-profit status. We know you want to know that the money you donate will in fact reach it's target. Those wishing to pursue verification should IM chryblnd Scribe inworld in the first instance.
The Guerilla Burlesque troupe is very supportive of Autism awareness, and they are all keen to present a fun show to a new audience - this event will be held at 6pm SLT, and not our usual midnight timeslot. We hope fans will be excited to invite their friends who cannot stay up late enough to see the weekly show. Curti5 Rexen is overseeing the production of this event, and we plan to release more information on just what the event will feature over the coming weeks. What you can be sure of is a vibrant, dynamic and quality production from a team who does just that every week.
Save the date and join us for a fun night with a heart of gold. Saturday, April 21st from 6pm at Idle Rogue.

Please share this information with musicians and other performers who may be interested in this venture. These are fee-paying bookings, with conditions attached, as we are hoping to enhance our audience's experience and ensure the smooth delivery of the entertainment we provide.
DeepSky Timeless and Guerilla Burlesque - March 2012, a set on Flickr.
Another amazing event from Idle Rogue Productions. Featuring the music of DeepSky Timeless, and a post-apocalyptic Medicine Show stage set built by Chewie Quixote, the show featured the choreography of Diawa Bellic and lighting by ShippyCreations.
Special Guests Guerilla Burlesque and FacelessAPe Mefusula added lustre to an already startling musicial performance. Try to catch this show when it plays Idle Rogue again.
Special thanks to the production team mentioned above, to the Guerilla Burlesque dancers and their guests who volunteered to fill the empty spaces. You all rocked this show.

DeepSky Timeless is a writer and musician whose metal and prog-rock formed the backbone of the extremely popular virtual band Deep Sky Traveler. Deep's post-apocalyptic vision informs his music, and his sweeping soundscapes are profound, electrifying and flecked with wry humour. This is music you can only hear performed in Second Life, and features all the lights, dazzle, dance and spectacular you know to expect from an Idle Rogue production.
You are invited to dress in theme or just come along to witness just how good virtual entertainment can be. From 6pm, Saturday March 31st at Idle Rogue.
Stay connected for details of more of the very best of Second Life's musicians as they return to Idle Rogue and we get back to doing what we love best - live music. Let's rock!
