[14:09] Andromeda Mesmer: All those dates seem fine.

[14:12] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: So the kickoff is the End of July ?
[14:12] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): the chicken hats were a feature of early oktoberfests. kendra designed them. we should see if we can recreate them
[14:12] AbbyRose Abbot: We would like to do a Circus themed eveny in mid-August "if" we can get builders, designers, etc to help with it.

[14:13] Delia Lake: didn't the logo have a chicken, Pat?
[14:13] Ceasar Xigalia: :)
[14:13] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): here's an idea - a six hour party starting in anzere and going thru each sim in order when it opened. a different theme/DJs for each hour
[14:13] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: I ws thinking that we could have a sort of tour, were we go from spot to spot in CDS where there are ..historiccal events happened, includng the opening of each sim.
[14:14] Lilith Ivory: I think the chicken had a big meaning in the beginning
[14:14] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): i don't recall that delia! but you migth be right. will try to find photos
[14:14] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): great idea cleo. there's lots of history to celebrate
[14:14] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: i like the idea of a progressive party to kick off ?
[14:14] Delia Lake: we have one of the original nutcrackers in MoCA
[14:14] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: neat !
[14:14] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: Hi Stephen
[14:15] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): we coudl recreate the U-quake by deleting half the NFS sim :)
[14:15] AbbyRose Abbot: I like the idea too.
[14:15] AbbyRose Abbot: Hi Stephen
[14:15] Delia Lake: lol Pat.
[14:15] Lilith Ivory: Hi Stephen

[14:15] Delia Lake: Hi Stephen
[14:15] Stephen Xootfly: Greetings, everyone.
[14:15] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: so some temporary, historical info, installations on each sim.. that can be traveled from one to another like a tour.. telling bout CDS/??
[14:15] Catz Jewell Lane (Catz Jewell): hi stephen
[14:15] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: OH DEAR PAT !
[14:16] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: that might upset sudane ! :)
[14:16] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=neual ... ng;500;646
[14:16] Andromeda Mesmer: Is there any chance we could get some of the old buildings upt up? Like something from Al Andalus? Or any others? I understand that some people liked the old church.
[14:16] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): chicken hat. on ulrika
[14:17] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: i dont know .. but the AA merger is a big part of our history Andromeda. that is true
[14:17] Delia Lake: the chicken logo is on the wall upstairs in the rathaus
[14:17] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: I wonder if draxtor would do a machinima for us, as he is a former citizen ?
[14:17] Stephen Xootfly: Are talking about advertising CDS for a specific event?
[14:17] Delia Lake: Drax did machimima of both NFS and AA. I'm sure we could play those
[14:18] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: OH Stephen, sorry, the CDS is about to have its 10th anniversary !
[14:18] Andromeda Mesmer: yes - 10th anniversary.
[14:18] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): we should mark the al andalus merger and demerger in some way. difficult to do it in a way which does not offend someone tho. we should try
[14:18] Stephen Xootfly: neat!
[14:18] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: Brainstorming about the events.
[14:18] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: yes pat, how do we do that ? .. an instalation at the edge of the sim where AA was
[14:18] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: movies slide shows ?
[14:18] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): i'd like to commemorate those we have lost too. kendra looms large in my mind. she was a creative brain who designed much of neualtenaburg
[14:19] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: definitely , nods
[14:19] Lilith Ivory: on flikr are some pictures about when the AA Sims joined us
[14:19] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): those are all good ideas cleo
[14:19] Delia Lake: I was thinking about Kendra too
[14:19] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: we need to just start gathering everyhing we can get our hands on
[14:19] Stephen Xootfly: is it too late to commission someone to write a play about the founding and history? then have avatars play it out?
[14:19] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: OH that is a great idea Stephen !
[14:19] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): love that idea stephen! we are not short on drama
[14:19] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: I think we can do that before Spetember 21
[14:19] Andromeda Mesmer: If there are any old timers still around in SL somewhere - like old Lindens, or old former citizens, we should let
[14:20] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: hahaha pat and i can throw tomatoes at each other.
[14:20] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: hmm.. old lindens, ??
[14:20] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): i think reaching out to forrmer citizens is a good idea. some will be amazed we are still here
[14:20] Stephen Xootfly: or, have Cleo and Pat bots throw tomatoes at each other.
[14:20] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: Theprincess might rise up from the grave
[14:20] AbbyRose Abbot: speakers would be nice
[14:20] Delia Lake: Hanley left LL years ago
[14:20] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: yes !
[14:20] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): and there are some lindens who were sponsors at one time
[14:20] Andromeda Mesmer: Commemorating those who have gone away would be good - whether gone from RL too, or just from SL.
[14:20] Delia Lake: he works for a ngo in the SF area now
[14:21] Stephen Xootfly: yeah, like the official historian reading a history that is poetic would be cool. Like Canterbury Tales.
[14:21] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: We can ask around
[14:21] Delia Lake: a lot of the really good things about sl would never have happened without Hanley
[14:21] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: So who writes plays ? Ludo
[14:21] Catz Jewell Lane (Catz Jewell): comedy?
[14:22] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: we actually have a citizen who did a similar thing in rl stephen
[14:22] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: wrote a play about the town, for it anniversary
[14:22] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): we should reach out to connnected communties too - those who were in al andalus, the people around kendra in port neualtenburg and cedar island and caledon too
[14:22] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: Roma
[14:22] Stephen Xootfly: nice.
[14:22] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): yes, roma too
[14:22] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: definitely Cedar Island
[14:23] Andromeda Mesmer: Roma would be great.

[14:23] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: was des ever a citizen?
[14:23] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): we should invite prokofy neva to come back and predict our immiment demise :) like he's been doing for ten years!

[14:23] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: YES Pat !
[14:23] Ceasar Xigalia: Des used to write on the forums
[14:23] Andromeda Mesmer: The Abranination celebration went on for the whole of June.
[14:24] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): i don't think des was ever a citizen, just a friendly foe

[14:28] Andromeda Mesmer: I still have my old outfit and skin and even system hair.
[14:29] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): factions were also a big part of our history. would be good to have some info on SDF, DPU etc. maybe invite them to hold stalls and stand on their soapboxes?
[14:29] Ceasar Xigalia: :)
[14:29] Stephen Xootfly: combining an anniversary party with a new sim opening would be pretty grand.

[14:42] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ovQgzi4KDLQ

[14:43] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: all get in the amphitheater and show the old movies
[14:43] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): is a link to the kidnap of kendra by the evil forces of caledon
[14:43] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: can we do that . ??
[14:43] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): i love the idea of movie night. there are several machinima we coudl show
[14:43] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: drax did one and i cross the bridge moon built. :/
[14:44] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): we could encourage ppl to develop new ones too. a competition? maybe
[14:44] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: yes ! good idea pat
[14:45] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: i am going to hope draxtor wil come back and judge !
[14:45] Stephen Xootfly: I can't find the specific show. They do interviews with artists, builders, and community.
[14:45] Delia Lake: maybe in the autumn. I think Drax is sort of taking the summer off
[14:45] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: nods
[14:45] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: :)
[14:46] Andromeda Mesmer: I looked up - for publicity - the online newspaper - it is http://alphavilleherald.com - but does not seem to be very active. However, there are bloggers around who publish regularly. I just don't know who.
[14:46] Stephen Xootfly: Drax would be the best resource for machinima anyway.
[14:47] Delia Lake: maybe Saffia and Erlik would do another Prim Perfect show here
[14:47] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: a contest would be cool, pat .. a machinima contest..
[14:47] AbbyRose Abbot: Jami Mills and Friday have a magazine.
[14:47] Stephen Xootfly: Okay, Prim Perfect is what I was thinking of. Thanks Delia.
[14:47] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: gridwide ? to do a history of CDS
[14:47] AbbyRose Abbot: Perhaps they would do an interview in it.
[14:47] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): for a while there was also the neualtenburg cabaret... we could even recreat that!
[14:47] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: i mean the contest pat what would you think ? grid wide, or just citizens ?
[14:48] Ceasar Xigalia: neualtenburg cabaret?
[14:48] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): open it up. non-xitizens have features us before
[14:48] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): "for a while, the short-lived Cabaret, designed in the style of Berlin in 1930, and providing a stylish, decandent, bourgeois counterpart to Second Life's many red light districts."
[14:48] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: yes i think that is good pat
[14:48] Pat (Patroklus Murakami): http://secondlife.wikia.com/wiki/Kendra_Bancroft
[14:49] Stephen Xootfly 's ears perk up at "Cabaret"
[14:49] Andromeda Mesmer: There is a 1920's themed Berlin in SL. Unfortunately not comfortable to move in - built strictly to scale.
[14:50] Catz Jewell Lane (Catz Jewell): no Liza Minelli Stephen sorry she's busy, lol
[14:50] CLEOPATRA Xigalia: what about a time capsule ?
[14:51] Stephen Xootfly: drats
