Movie: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Release Date: 1 July 2010 (USA)
Runtime: 103 min

The world is divided into four kingdoms, each represented by the element they harness, and peace has lasted throughout the realms of Water, Air, Earth, and Fire under the supervision of the Avatar, a link to the spirit world and the only being capable of mastering the use of all four elements. When young Avatar Aang disappears, the Fire Nation launches an attack to eradicate all members of the Air Nomads to prevent interference in their future plans for world domination. 100 years pass and current Fire Lord Ozai continues to conquer and imprison anyone with elemental "bending" abilities in the Earth and Water Kingdoms, while siblings Katara and Sokka from a Southern Water Tribe find a mysterious boy trapped beneath the ice outside their village. Upon rescuing him, he reveals himself to be Aang, Avatar and last of the Air Nomads. Swearing to protect the Avatar, Katara and Sokka journey with him to the Northern Water Kingdom in his quest to master "Waterbending" and eventually fulfill his destiny of once again restoring peace to the world. But as they inch nearer to their goal, the group must evade Prince Zuko, the exiled son of Lord Ozai, Commander Zhao, the Fire Nation's military leader, and the tyrannical onslaught of the evil Fire Lord himself.

All show times are in sl time.

There are 17 minutes between when the movie ends and the next begins so you have plenty of time if you are late but try not to be more than 15 minutes late if you want to be sure of seeing it all :).

The Show Times Are:

8:00am - 9:43am
10:00am - 11:43am
12:00pm - 1:43pm

4:00pm - 5:43pm
6:00pm - 7:43pm
8:00pm - 9:43pm

After this it gets hazy. Unless we can find someone who's time zones match it's catch as catch can. the dvd will be placed beside the tv and all you must do is click it and click play from the drop down menu. if someone is already there watching, then you should be able to just click play on your own viewer and it will start to play for you since the movie is already in motion. it's when the movie has ended that it won't start.

Please remember that, unless you are here when start the movie (Phoenix viewer and some others), the movie will not automatically start as soon as you land. Viewer 2 users MUST press play even if you are here when when I start the movie. The play button for Phoenix and some other viewers is on the bottom right of your screen next to what looks like a small movie camera. If you are in viewer 2 and don't know how to play just the media without the music on the land playing at well: To play media (movie) only, go to the play/pause icon next to the speaker icon on the top right of your viewer. Hover the mouse over the icon and select "More" from the menu that comes up. There stop all but "Parcel streaming media" use this to play and pause the movie as well. Rember though regardless of what you do here the movie will restart when the next show time hits. So please becarfull not to pause to long.

You MUST have the most current version of Quicktime for media to work!!!

If you teleport out, you will have to start the movie over again when you get back! It's not like a dvd player. You can't pick up where you left off, so unless it's super important, stay put. If you MUST leave, might as well come back at the next showtime :).

Movie day is not just for our family members! Feel free to pass this notecard on to your friends or bring your friends along with you :).

Love and Light,

Today starting at 3pm we will have 3 different amazing musisans performing. For those of you who came to our Fall of the Year ~ Festival Samhain you know just what sort of a treat you are in for.

3pm - 4pm - Zachh Cale

Zachh sings songs in a mashup style of pop, classical, soul, jazz and new age. Schooled in classical piano, he later learned to play more by ear, sing in a more soulful manner, and trust his musical "gut."


Now he blends both traditional and popular approaches to composition and performance. The result is a fresh and varied combination of melodies, rhythms, and arrangements which he hopes stimulates both hearts and minds of listeners.

He also writes music for solo piano. Come hear for yourself!

4pm - 5pm - Moss

Mordewis Greymyst (Moss Bliss IRL) has been playing guitar badly since 1964 and has been known to sing passably. He has written a few award-winning songs (no, not Grammys), but mostly finds and performs rare and/or forgotten songs that are known only to die-hard folk musicians with ears for lyrical excellence. His performances are largely reserved for Science Fiction conventions and Pagan gatherings, where he breaks out the songs he is too embarrassed to play elsewhere. He lives in Sevierville TN USA with his four guitars, two housemates, three snakes, and four cats, and is very happy. He is also Senior Editor for a couple of small ePublishers, a Peer Support Specialist and mental health civil rights activist, and so many other differing endeavors it is hard for him to get around to music.


5pm - 6pm - The Jubilatores (Pavel Snowfield)

The Jubilatores perform medieval music from England, Spain, France, Italy, Germany and a few other countries in Europe.

Instruments include: Lute, oud, saz (guitarra Saricina), citol (guitarra latina), rebec, fyddle, psaltry, dulcimer, harp, jaw harp, drums of various types including riq, tar, dumbec, portitive organ, virginals, transverse flutes, recorders, dulcian, reed pipe, symphnoium/organistrum (hurdy gurdy), medieval bell, zills, Tombra mariana, gems horn, and various other instruments.


Come out and enjoy a great show!

Movie: Avatar

Release Date: 18 December 2009 (USA)
Runtime: 155 min
Part 1 - 75 min
Part 2 - 80 min

When his brother is killed in a robbery, paraplegic Marine Jake Sully decides to take his place in a mission on the distant world of Pandora. There he learns of greedy corporate figurehead Parker Selfridge's intentions of driving off the native humanoid "Na'vi" in order to mine for the precious material scattered throughout their rich woodland. In exchange for the spinal surgery that will fix his legs, Jake gathers intel for the cooperating military unit spearheaded by gung-ho Colonel Quaritch, while simultaneously attempting to infiltrate the Na'vi people with the use of an "avatar" identity. While Jake begins to bond with the native tribe and quickly falls in love with the beautiful alien Neytiri, the restless Colonel moves forward with his ruthless extermination tactics, forcing the soldier to take a stand - and fight back in an epic battle for the fate of Pandora.

All show times are in sl time. Because this is such a long movie, it's presented in two parts (this wasn't my idea, it's how the sl dvd is set up). As such, I will break up the show times into the two parts to allow more leaway for those who arrive a few minutes late or find they don't have time to finish the second part but can return for the second part later. It also gives you a brief intermission between parts to get up, get drinks, and other things before the next part so you dont miss anything (and with this particular movie, you REALLY don't want to miss anything!).

There is a 15 minute intermission between parts 1 and 2 and there is 10 minutes between when part 2 ends and the next beginning of part 1 starts. so all in all try not to be more than 10 minutes late for either part!

The Show Times Are:

Part 1~ 5:00am - 6:15am

Part 2~ 6:30am - 7:50am



Part 1~8:00am - 9:15am

Part 2~ 9:30am - 10:50am



Part 1~11:00am - 12:15pm

Part 2~ 12:30pm - 1:50pm



Part 1~2:00pm - 3:15pm

Part 2~ 3:30pm - 4:50pm



Part 1~5:00pm - 6:15pm

Part 2~ 6:30pm - 7:50pm



Part 1~8:00pm - 9:15pm

Part 2~ 9:30pm - 10:50pm



Part 1~11:00pm - 12:15am

Part 2~ 12:30am - 1:50am

Movie: The Time Traveler's Wife
Release Date: 14 August 2009 (USA)
Runtime: 107 min

The Time Traveler's Wife is the time-defying love story of Henry DeTamble (Eric Bana) and Clare Abshire (Rachel McAdams). Henry is a librarian afflicted with a genetic disease that causes him to travel through time more or less randomly. Henry's random and unpredictable escapades are often dangerous, terrifying and sometimes life-threatening ordeals because he ends up buck-naked and starving in unknown places and times. For those reasons, Henry keeps himself in top physical shape and taught "himself" all type of survival skills such as pick-pocketing, street fighting, or picking locks. After a random while, he always goes back to his "present" but is largely unable to affect his future. At age 28, he meets 20-yr old Clare Abshire. He doesn't know her but she has known him since she was 6 and has been waiting for him all her life and will do so the rest of her life...

All show times are in sl time. Please notice there are 13 minutes between when the movie ends and when it begins. So MUST not be more than 10 minutes late (ideally) if you wish to view the entire movie.

The Show Times Are:

5:00am - 6:47am

7:00am - 8:47am

9:00am - 10:47am

11:00am - 12:47pm

5:00pm - 6:47pm

7:00pm - 8:47pm

9:00pm - 10:47pm

11:00pm - 12:47am

Unless we can find someone who's time zones match it's catch as catch can. the dvd will be placed beside the tv and all you must do is click it and click play from the drop down menu. if someone is already there watching, then you should be able to just click play on your own viewer and it will start to play for you since the movie is already in motion. it's when the movie has ended that it won't start.

Please remember that the movie will not automatically start as soon as you land. You must press play on your viewer for it to work. If you are in viewer 2 and don't know how to play just the media without the music on the land playing at well, then go to preferences and disable music. There is another way and I will put it in when I learn it. Please be sure to have the most current version of Quicktime or the movie may not play for you!!!

Movie day is not just for our family members! Feel free to pass this notecard on to your friends or bring your friends along with you :).

We had such a great time with our Festival and I want to say thank you to all the performers, photographers, and general visiters and participants that made it great!

If you had a particular event you enjoyed and would like to see again either at future festivals or just generally on sim Please let us know in a comment or let me, Cali Ciaco, know in world. We would love to continue to have events for our friends and family thought the year not just at our festivals and your feed back can help us in planing those as well as in making our next festival even better.

If you or your friends took any pictures of the festival please e-mail them to Alurel.kingdom@gmail.com or send them in world to Cali Ciaco so that we can share them here on the blog.

We would also love to start publishing poems, short stories, or real in world stories about your experiances in Alurel. If you are interested in sharing some of your work here please send it through e-mail or in a note card just as you would the pictures.

As autumn progresses you will start to see bare trees and browning leaves, which we will begin to clear away in preparation for winter. We hope you continue to enjoy the our forest as the chill gets deeper.
