We are starting a new event in Alurel!
    As many of you know, I've been a story teller in Alurel for more tan 4 years, though I've mostly retired since Alurel Family acquired a new home in Alurel itself :). At one point in time I read all over sl, my own works and the works of others, full novels, short stories and poetry, in guest spots and weekly events. Since then I've been mostly reading at our festivals and occasionally at literary venues I've been asked to appear in :).

    Recently, however, some of the longer standing family have expressed a wish for me to start reading again and I have spent a long time giving it serious consideration. With our current empty plots, we are lacking funds to have our usual events for some time now. And to be honest....I sort of miss the readings too!

    I would like to announce the beginning of Alurel's Fireside Tales (once called Aianna's Fireside Tales, but this seemed far more appropriate as I am no longer reading all over SL). Alurel's Fireside Tales will consist of short, fantasy stories read live over a stream by me twice a week. The stories may be written by me or (most likely) by some other author. 

    The reason I am reading twice a week instead of once a week is to try to accommodate more than one time zone. One day will be geared toward European times and the other toward American. Readings are generally an hour long, though some short stories CAN carry us past an hour. If the short story is going to be far too long then I will split it up into two readings...which means you'll just have to come back the next week to hear the rest :)).

 Days and Times:
Tuesdays starting at 1 pm slt
Fridays starting at 5 pm slt

http://slurl.com/secondlife/Alurel/187/168/24

    I'm starting the readings with the book "Dreams Underfoot," a collection of short stories written by one of my favorite authors, Charles de Lint. This series of stories are all urban fantasy. They are all set in a city called Newford, which was written to be seen as any city in the world, only if you look closely, there's magic everywhere! Faeries, elves, goblins, all things magical, light and dark, beautiful and ugly, fly, lurk and wander about under our noses if only we know how to look. That is the magic Charles de Lint creates in his tales and these are the tales we shall start with!

    The first story I will be reading from "Dreams Underfoot" is called "Uncle Dobbin's Parrot Fair" and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

    So I will see you in Alurel Village on November 29th at 1 pm slt and again on December 2nd at 5pm slt for "Uncle Dobbin's Parrot Fair!"

Love and Light,
Lady Aiánna Ferúviál
Queen of Alurel

    Welcome to Alurel's first Midsummer celebration! I know our seasonal festivals are usually at least two days in length but these are lean times for most everyone these days.

    The Sun is at it's strongest! The fae  and fauns are frolicking in the wood! Come and join them in their dance of life and love for this season of warmth!

The Light of the Year ~ Litha Festival of the Sun

(All Events are at the above landmark unless otherwise specified)

Schedule of Events:

Sunday, June 19, 2011:

10am - 12pm - Aianna Oh - A Return to the Old Ways

What do we mean by old ways? Well, a long time ago, story tellers would pluck a story out of the air and tell it to their listeners around the fire. This is how all of Aianna Oh's short stories have been written. This story telling is not done in voice but in local chat. While she can read a written tale aloud, making one up in voice is another matter. But typing one out is much easier...it's harder to stutter when typing :). Aianna may designate one or two trusted friends to copy and paste all she types to be cleaned up later and added to her collection of short stories in case she crashes before she's finished.


12pm - 2pm - Skye Galaxy - Alurel Midsummer Ball

There are no words to adequately describe Skye Galaxy, Sean Ryan in rl! When Sean sings, it's like watching art come to life...lines of poetry transformed to sound and marching through your soul, moving you in a way you've never been moved before. His is a voice and talent like no other in any world and I feel blessed to have the privilege of having him here in Alurel! You really do NOT want to miss Sean play!!!


2pm - 3pm - ChangHigh Trinity Sisters Fireshow of Light, Life and Love
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Alurel/187/168/24

"The spirit in us greets the spirit in You." The Trinity Sisters are truly a sight to see. They are one of the most unique acts I've seen in sl. Customized animations, props and particles that are beautifully synchronized to flow with their DJ's music. It's quite a show!
This show is held in Alurel Village as there is not enough space in the Ballroom:

The current recession has be making it hard for everyone to afford the little extras particularly with companies raising or at least not lowering the prices they charge. With that in mind Lady Aianna has custom built a beautiful elven aboreal village! With much lower rental cost than a full plot these absolutly lovely tree houses would make a great home for those who love Alurel but can't afford the land prices.

Each aboreal house has its own teleport, a generous amount of prims and a lovely view. We are excited to be able to welcome more people into the Alurel Family with these affordable homes.



Details:
 L$ 200 a week, 100 prims but only 18 avalable.



Come by and take a look we would love to welcome you home!

Visit The Alurel Village in world

The Bloom of the Year ~ Festival Beltain
(All events are at the above land mark unless otherwise specified)

Schedule of Events:

Saturday, April 30, 2011:
12pm - 1:30pm - Drum

DRUM's goal is to bring the world to you via the power of drumming. Our aim is to have fun and to create incredible, beautiful rhythms - live.

Right now our performances consists of 6 different drum cultures, Taiko (Japanese), Native American, African, Latin, Indian and a very special set of Rusty Drums. We are planning many new exciting sets for the near future!

Members of the DRUM group have collaborated to create the unique sounds, drums, and animations that enable us to perform. Our performances are live and are subtly different each time - they are not pre-recorded music. The sounds are created right within Second Life. We then send them out and back in via stream in order to provide you with a lag free experience! We hope you enjoy our performances as much as we enjoy providing them.

Brigitte Kungler - Director/Drummer
Kell Babenco - Drummer
Ladyslipper Constantine - Drummer
Lorin Tone - Drummer
DMom2K Darwin - Drummer/Equipment
aterebor Zenovka - Drummer/Sound Stream
Yagin Fallen - Sound Stream

1:30pm - 3pm - Albannach
Albannach is an exciting , wild, tribal type group of Street Performers in Scotland.  Virtual Albannach was established in June 2009

3pm - 2pm - Caoilte Savage
Caoilte Skytower (pronounced "Queel-chah") is Irish, Scottish, English and American Folk/Rock, all tied together with his incredible voice and skills on guitar!  He has been involved in music for 35 years, performing folk and rock music in RL pubs and cafe's since he was 21. Cao has been active in various reniassance and folk festivals over the years, as well as other events. His voice is relaxing, as described by his fans. This opinion makes him feel honored, as he stated, "The songs I sing mean a lot to me, and it comes across in my delivery."  Cao finds it important to truly connect with his audience, making them laugh at his humorous songs, clap along with the drinking songs, sing along with the classics, and even cry at the sad ones.

4pm - 5pm - Pete Mroz
Pete Mroz is a traveler, your new best friend, the charming ice breaker, and the proverbial “life of the party.” Always the fearless ring leader, he catches you off guard with his “don’t I know you” sly grin and playful sense of humor. He’s harmless and fun till he whips out his guitar and opens his mouth to sing- then you are captivated- Who is this guy? You really don’t see it coming- the guitar tone, the clarity, the sparse, melodic, hook laden riffs that incorporate heartfelt soul and blues. Then there’s that voice- angelic is a word that comes to mind- his voice soars through the air like a warm ribbon of light- effortless and spot on. Call it a command of his instruments, call it charisma, call it an anointing- it’s as if he’s flying and it sounds like freedom to me. It is that freedom that quietens a room and draws the audience into his world.

5pm - 6pm - Heath Elvehjem (Heath Vercher): musician, composer

Heath began his musical career prior to his teens where his experiments with music creation led him to the discovery of what would be a driving force in his life. It was not until he was around 16 that he gave his first public performance. These first steps were of course not pleasant but Heath kept working and in the not too many years since has turned these beginnings into a blossoming career.
During his formative years, Heath gained some influences from some great performers, notably Jim Brickman, Yanni, David Lanz, Billy Joel, Marc Cohen, and Bruce Hornsby. Though some of Heath's playing style could be attributed to these influences, his style is a combination of New Age and Contemporary musical genres that stands on its own.

6pm - 7pm - Christopher135 Quan
As a member of the West Coast Songwriters Association, Christopher has been involved with music and performing for nearly 30 years. 

Christopher's songwriting includes a range of genres from heart-felt originals to jammin' blues to praise & worship. And of course, Chris enjoys playing his favorite covers.  Either way, Chris reaches down deep into his soul to deliver a soulful perfomance, kissed with ambient keys .... that which emerges... captivates one's heart...

Sunday, May 1, 2011:
7am - 9am - A Return to the Old Ways - Stories by Aianna Oh
This event is held at The Story Pavilion on the Loxingly Estates: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Alurel/214/223/24

What do we mean by old ways? Well, a long time ago, story tellers would pluck a story out of the air and tell it to their listeners around the fire. This is how all of Aianna Oh's short stories have been written. This story telling is not done in voice but in local chat. While she can read a written tale aloud, making one up in voice is another matter. But typing one out is much easier...it's harder to stutter when typing :). Aianna may designate one or two trusted friends to copy and paste all she types to be cleaned up later and added to her collection of short stories in case she crashes before she's finished.
Aianna Oh has been telling stories since childhood. She began putting them down on paper by the age of 12, poetry by the age of 8. She wrote her first novel in conjunction with her father at age 15, which turned into a series of 6 books and a 7th offshoot. At the time it was said that "she had the imagination while the old man had the grammer she lacked." Now all grown up and able to express herself with her own words she writes her poetry and short stories as the whim strikes her and is currently starting a new series of novels on her own.

9am - 10am - Radegund Bracken, poet, singer, storyteller
This event is held at The Story Pavilion on the Loxingly Estates: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Alurel/214/223/24

Radegund is a writer, a singer, a storyteller, a runereader, and a mystic-in-training, with influences ranging from deep mythology and folklore, to high literature and zoology, to Looney Tunes and Muppets.  She has been writing since before she could write, often dictating to a handy grown-up to fill in the words on the pictures she'd drawn.  A graduate of Carleton University in Ottawa, she has published several small chapbooks through her small Whimsivore Press (after which her SL group is named), and has been a featured poetry reader on several stages in Toronto.  Her readings are filled with rhyme and song, with lots of laughs and a generous helping of out-and-out wonder.

10am - 12pm - Maypole Dance with DJ Lucien Brentano

This event is held in The Faerie's Garden: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Alurel/175/199/24

Join us for a two hour frolic around the Maypole as DJ Lucien spins a vibrant, joyful Mayday mix! Dance among the flowers and fae and just have fun as we celebrate Spring, the joy, the love, and the......fertility ;) of the season!
  One of Caledon's most popular DJs, Lucien's been bringing the BEWM to the airwaves since 2009. He's played some of the biggest shows in the Steamlands and helped found KBWM Radio - a combination Internet radio station and DJ coalition. His music library spans eras, genres, continents and cultures. While he specializes in the emerging steampunk genre, he's comfortable and well versed in many other styles.

The Alurel One Year Anniversary Spring Ball:
YES Alurel the sim is now one year old! Amazing as it seems we've been here that long. Though Alurel as a family has been around much longer than that, we've decided that this is still an event worth celebrating, and as it falls right next to Beltaine itself, we've combined the two celebrations! Join us for this two hour FORMAL celebration of Beltaine and the Birth of Alurel sim!

12pm - 1pm - Maximillion Kleene

If music feeds the soul, Maximillion Kleene is the food of the gods. His dynamic musical range and smooth groove provide many a listener with a virtual buffet of auditory temptations. Max started his music career with formal study of piano at the Royal Conservatory but quickly realized that it was the guitar guys who got the chicks. By 19, he was seriously immersed to the very center of his musical soul in AC/DC and from there branched out to experiment with sounds that range from Pearl Jam to Foo Fighters  to Jason Mraz. Max brings high energy and a vast repertoire of quirky, classic, and current covers to Second Life. Oozing charisma and charm, he provides his fans with an hour of musical magic.

1pm - 2pm - Allister Westland
Allister Westland is a well established and popular musician in SL who's performances get rave reviews. His shows consist of a mix of classic rock and modern popular rock cover tunes as well as a collection of original material that showcases his musical diversity and abilities. You will hear anything from soft acoustic ballads in their purest form with only his acoustic guitar and his rich soulful vocals, to hard driving heavy rock tunes with the full production sound  of his self performed and pre-recorded backing tracks.  Allister sings live and combines both acoustic guitar and electric guitar in his performances and with the advances in technology  available to him in the studio from which he performs from, will sometimes layer live keyboard and drum parts to his songs.  His unique musical style  is influenced by everyone from Van Halen and Joe Satriani to  Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and other classic rock favorites.

Movie: Dorian Gray
Release: 9 September 2009 (UK)
Runtime: 112 min

A naïve young man. A lovelorn artist. A corruptible Lord. A deal with the Devil. It all paints a dark picture of a Victorian London and how the rich and infamous party at their peril. Here, the telling of time and its consequence of experience for life's treasures' takes its toll on the body, mind and soul. The haunting and bleak tale of power, greed, vanity and inevitable self-destruction is ever present amongst the deceit, opium dens and sin.
Fresh-faced and innocent, Dorian Gray arrives in London to move into the house he has inherited. Almost immediately he falls under the influence of amoral and calculating Lord Henry Wotton, leading to a life of increasing debauchery and even violence. Through many years Gray stays as young-looking as ever, while a portrait painted when he arrived grows old, reflecting his increasing excesses. Eventually the picture, now secreted in his attic, becomes almost hideous to behold. When true love finally enters his life he realizes he must guard his secret at all costs.

Release Date: 27 October 1995 (USA)
Runtime: 111 min


When sheriff Barnum investigates the death of an elderly rural resident, he discovers a teenage grandson living in the basement. Raised by his grandparents, he has experienced the world only through books, never leaving the family farm. He is sent to a state home for boys where he has trouble fitting in socially. His odd appearance and unusual abilities cause the small town residents to fear and ridicule him. However, not all are afraid. Some begin to view his potential and gifts with wonderment.
Harassed by classmates who won't accept his shocking appearance, the shy young man known as "Powder" struggles to fit in. But the cruel taunts stop when Powder displays a mysterious power that allows him to do incredible things. This phenomenon changes the lives of all those around him in ways they never could have imagined.

Movie:Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole
Release Date: 24 September 2010 (USA)
Runtime: 97 min 
Soren, a young barn owl, is kidnapped by owls of St. Aggie's, ostensibly an orphanage, where owlets are brainwashed into becoming soldiers. He and his new friends escape to the island of Ga'Hoole, to assist its noble, wise owls who fight the army being created by the wicked rulers of St. Aggie's. The film is based on the first three books in the series.
All show times are in sl time.
There are 23 minutes between when the movie ends and the next begins so you have a bit of time if you are late. Try not to be more than 20 minutes late if you want to be sure of seeing it all :). If you want to be sure to have enough time to be able to pause (on your viewer, NOT the tv) when rl interferes then show up right on time! (be sure you are pressing pause and not stop or you will have to start viewing the movie from the beginning again!!!)
The Show Times Are (subject to change according to attendance):
6:00am - 7:37am
8:00am - 9:37am
10:00am - 11:37am
12:00pm - 1:37pm
2:00pm - 3:37pm
4:00pm - 5:37pm
6:00pm - 7:37pm
8:00pm - 9:37pm
10:00pm - 11:37pm
12:00am - 1:37am
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 :).

Movie: The Sorcerer's Apprentice
Release Date: 14 July 2010 (USA)
Runtime: 104 min


Balthazar
Blake (Nicolas Cage) is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan
trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (Alfred
Molina). Balthazar can't do it alone, so he recruits Dave Stutler (Jay
Baruchel), a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as
his reluctant protégé. The sorcerer gives his unwilling accomplice a
crash course in the art and science of magic, and together, these
unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness. It'll take all
the courage Dave can muster to survive his training, save the city and
get the girl as he becomes The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

We are very proud to announce another new addition to Alurel! We have a new Residential Sim to the north of Alurel and the plots are already filling up.

Wymberel is just as lovely as Alurel adding to the grounds to explore and enjoy. Just as with Alurel a lot of thought and car has gone into its planing and decoration and you will find delightful details and little hidden places and fun things.

On of the main attractions of Wymberel is the labyrinth in its center. Though its a small and not too complicated hedgemaze it is delightful and ment to be explored slowly and with a friend or lover. Full of little hidden spots and suprises in all its turns please do take the time to enjoy it and all of the land we have.

There are many delightful houses here as a reminder, all homes that do not have a sign by there door are privately owned and while there grounds are free to explore we ask that you do not enter the home uninvited. However if the sign is present please feel free to go in and look around.

Because we make an effort to be a home for all people we are also making both regons more micro friendly. You will find mushroom and other seats and things sprouting up with micro poses and other wonderful toys for them as we can find and add them.

Please come by and explore and enjoy. You might just find a home in our forest among the fae.

If you happen to have a boat I would recomend bring it by if not I have one you can borrow. It will be of use for you in the Alurian Sea that we have off our Eastern coast surrounding Endelmor Isle.

the Island is a nice quite place with an Elven boat house and volcano. The perfect place for a romantic picnic on the beach or a leasurly strole.













While all our waterways are kept open for boat and swiming traffic none offer the space and freedom of the sea. come spend some time sailing and exploring. You may want to grab your fins and merforms, as there are things to find and see under the waves as well as above them.














Endelmor is one of the few totally public places in Alurel and there is no land for sale here. So come on by and enjoy it!
