Kunstchameleon presents The New Babbage Social Salon at Dark Alice featuring Rusell Eponym who gathers us together for an hour of story and song on the stream 11am – 12pmSLT on Certain Wednesdays, beginning April 10th
10-10:50AM is the reading and chat salon preceding Russell’s concerts, we will gather and read original work, favourite works of stories and poetry and generally pass a pleasant social time in voice and text. Sound or sound translation required but you do not have to speak in voice if you prefer not to.
Who: New Babbage Social Salon featuring Russell Eponym
What: chat salon with Fauve (voice and text), then live concert with stories and song (stream)
Where: Dark Alice, #20 Babbage Square, New Babbage Your Taxi
When: Wednesday, April 10, 10-10:50am for Salon, 11am-12pm for Concert
Theme: ‘Tea Party’, Gothic Lolita, or Victorian/Steampunk garb as befits the City-State of New Babbage in the times before 1890.
Light New Babbage RP is OK but Russell’s shows always bring fans from all over the grid who are unfamiliar with the City and the Lore, so please help them feel welcome. April 10th, Fauve will read from the Gothic Lolita Novel Kamikaze Girls by Novala Takemoto and read a poem by Arika Takarano.
Future Salon readings under consideration or by request:
1.Audiobook listening – The Asylum for Wayward Victorian Girls – Emilie Autumn
2. Selections from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through The Looking-Glass
3. Lists from The Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon
4 +…suggest your requests or volunteer to read. Good themes would include similar to the above examples or literature or poetry related to similar themes.
No politics, religion or controversial topics at Salon, please. While there are many worthwhile serious topics in our modern typists’ times, a Social Salon is specifically designed for passing a pleasant time together and gives us the opportunity to lay aside everyday cares and worries in order to have an enjoyable time with friends.
*Note: If confused regarding the term “Gothic Lolita” as a fashion and sometimes a lifestyle, please do reference these resources:

This Salon is a purely social one with a focus of entertainment and merriment. For Educational Presentations, I highly recommend (and attend) the excellent monthly Aether Salon of New Babbage. You can peruse some of their past topics here
For Tomorrow: I am still not sure that a pre-concert chat and reading time will be a viable part of this event but I am preparing the 2 readings anyway and will try it for a while to test. I am very surprised and pleased that Kamikaze Girls reads aloud with such humour, actually and it is lots of fun to read it this way…even if the First Life cats are not a very appreciative audience…
I listed the event on the SL events calendar and with the daily Stories Unlimited notecard distribution that Caledonia Skytower has kept going forever. I should probably reset the visitor counter as well since I forget to take headcounts.
