The Silly Awards - The 5 Categories - CHOSEN



I am proud (I think) to announce the 5 categories chosen by the inner circle for the Silly Talent and Awards Show to be held some Saturday, EuroTime, this coming September.

The envelope please.  Drum roll...\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

1
Most Confusing Use of a Crustacean in a Dance Routine
(Shrimp, lobster, crab all qualify, no cephalopods allowed)

2
Most Abuse of Avatar Physics
(Crank up the sliders and let things flap in the breeze!)

3
Most Baffling Use of Motion
(Show us how you move in ways that make NO good sense.  Defy gravity, walk through your fellow dancers, slide like your feet are covered in grease.  Anything that's confusing.)

4
Most Misunderstood Mashup
(Urban grunge meets Mozart; Tinkerbell meets Nine Inch Nails; Terminator meets Glenn Miller...you get the idea)

5
Most OTT (Over the Top) routine
(Excessive use of set changes, props, effects (particles, etc.), costume changes....the type of routine that makes Donald Trump seem subtle) 


Thank all of you who submitted your ideas. 

Choices are limited to 2 categories per entrant.

Interested parties contact:

Shadow Tarber or myself, Lat "Yummy Lovenkraft for an application form.

The Silly Awards


Don't shoot the messenger. That would be me.

I am proud to announce that Shadow Tarber, Martin Yeats, and yours truly (don't roll your eyes) have teamed up to present something off kilter...the Silly Awards.  

One style of show dance is Burlesque. There are 2 definitions. One we are all too familiar with. That being:

"a variety show, typically including striptease."

But one seems to have gone on deaf ears.
"an absurd or comically exaggerated imitation of something, especially in a literary or dramatic work; a parody."
It is this definition, the 2nd definition, which lends itself more to the spirit of what we have in mind. A show that presents acts that would be absurd, comical parodies, of 'ourselves performing'...sort of a tension reliever. A chance to NOT take ourselves so seriously.  I see it following in the footsteps of another non-competitive event, the DotL Dance Challenge.

It's a combination 'dance and awards show combined'  to be held sometime in September on a Saturday of our choosing, Euro time. (midday SLT).

It is a show meant to poke fun at ourselves as performers, be it technical difficulties, noted and infamous performance guffaws, or non sequiturs. Its meant to be fun and hilarious to the point of irreverence. It is open to all. It will consist of 5 categories with 4 contestants in each category. It will be limited to two categories per entrant. 

There is also room for a limited number of intermissive (i made that word up) acts that will occur in between the regular acts. These will be shorter and could be about a minute long (a little shorter or longer) and must be performed in FRONT of the curtain so as to allow the next act to set up.

Voting will be limited to those in attendance and to one contestant per category per voter. There will be a HUD device created by Martin Yeats that each audience member will wear that will control and simplify voting and will only work at the venue.


And yes we have a trophy for the winners and we have a venue. And in the style of TV awards shows, we will have a gift basket. If nothing else, just come for the cheese.

So if you win at being awful, is that really a win? Don't you really want to lose?Hmmm...its so confusing....and meant to be that way. 

And now here is where you get to contribute ideas for categories. Send a notecard labelled SillyAwards - (yourname) as the notecard name and list your ideas for categories. Try to avoid the word "Best" in your category description.

Try to imagine contrasting the routine for your idea with some normalcy so as to provide a point of reference for the comedic poke.

Here is, to my way of thinking, a way of poking fun at, say "Most Confident Use of Animation Synchronization" (hope its not blocked in your country)

Ballet Primer 101

Here are some more examples:

Most Confusing Use of a Crustacean in a Dance Routine
(Shrimp, lobster, crab all qualify, no cephalopods allowed)

Most Unrealistic Routine
(Absolutely unable to be done physically in RL)"

Please contact either Shadow Tarber or myself for an application and further information..

Sunday, July 10, 2016


A first-time dance-challenge event was held Sunday July 10th for mainstream dancers. (A similar event for GOR dance was held Saturday July 9th.)

Bottom line...you have 4 hrs to create a routine from scratch. No recognizable sets allowed. The actual show, scheduled for 1:30pm SLT went on with only a few minutes delay....MUCH SHORTER DELAY than i expected under the gruelling circumstances. The LAG monster was even kind.

Organizers were: Ayita, JJ, Maia, and Nalani with Gunner stepping\d in to DJ, even having had another appointment at the same time.


So the challenge included: animations, sets, costumes, special fx, solos and groups. The list of performers were (in no particular order): Babypea, Kellan, Shadow Tarber, Diawa Bellic, Luna, Maia, & Ayita.

Songs were selected at random. A song for each decade from 1950 to 2010. I loved the song selections. 

First hurdle was that MP was down and/or severely crippled for 2 out of the 3 hours. What timing! Second hurdle was that I also I heard notecards were not saving reliably.

Whew!

 I visited all the build areas thru-out the 3 hrs as they were making them to pick up (steal) tricks. One thing I noticed was the popularity of texture-organizers so that will be 1st on my list to get if I don't already have one buried somewhere.

Also it wasn't as exciting as I thought it would be...cool stuff happenened  quickly in short spurts...then long periods of nothingness, not that its meant to be exciting for watchful eyes.  It's meant to meet the end objective...that being putting a routine together in a short span of time.  So there is a lot of 'thinking and creating and shopping and selecting' going on that is not visible. 

The final result was nothing less than amazing. I've seen less spectacular efforts that have had a week or more to prepare. Seemed, to me, as if people played to their personal strengths. It was touching. 

To be honest I expected A LOT MORE TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES and longer DELAYS between sets. Totally blown away. I can only credit the experience of those involved, professionalism, attention to detai, and passion for the craft.

FOUR things I came away with was 

ONE...how self-revealing it appeared to be for many. A few seemed to admit that they learned more about themselves. And to some, it was a humbling experience...

TWO...how so many people I have admired over the years came together in 'same time and place' to make it happen...

THREE ...how people participated from all the 3 major timezone areas. Real sacrifice from those who were doing it in their pajamas...or not...and

FOUR...how it was FUN and non-competitive, no prizes....everyone had their own creative challenges to face. 


It was all about the process and self-rediscovery as well as seeing how peers perform under similar circumstances and supporting and cheering each other on.  

So rumor is some venues will be doing 2 shows daily now. (just kidding).

The Paramount Players - How the West Was Danced


Come join us for an evening of classy but sassy entertainment as we the PARAMOUNT GRAND THEATRE, the Paramount Players dance for you July 9th at 7pm slt, in our new show, How the West Was Danced.

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.
