Austim Awareness Show


** A little background to Lighting The Way - Autism Awareness Event **

Just to give you all a little background on this show. I had started the Lighting The Way - Autism Awareness events here in SL back in 2010. Every year since I 1st started, I generally had one month long event, however, with some RL health issues, I had to dramatically cut back this year.

The reason I started Lighting The Way was because of my two children, whom both are on the autism spectrum. It was during this time I craved a means in which I could play an instrumental role in lighting the path from darkness for people who were diagnosed autistic.  My son suffers from the most severe form of autism while my daughter has the milder form known as Aspergers, so I decided to utilize SL as my platform for building awareness.

I started to have the dance community take part in the Lighting The Way event back in 2013 with a few acts here and there. Since most on the spectrum love all types of music, I thought this would be a wonderful way to help raise awareness. Over the years, I have watched Dancing For Autism grow into something that brings me to tears. The thought and dedication that each director and dancer brings to the stage, words can't even begin to explain.

The feedback has been such a positive one from not only through the dance community but from the audience members as well, whom some have been on the spectrum. To receive an IM from an audience member thanking me for having something here in SL to help raise awareness on what Autism is, they stated..... " having a place to go where I don't have to be judged and can be myself, makes me feel comfortable, I don't worry". Comments like that, is what drives me year after year to do this. It does HELP more than any of us can ever realize.

With every act, with every kind word, with every song choice, it does help. 



Paramount hits the stage at 4pm slt, Saturday, April 22nd

Color My World Sneek Peek


So our new show coming up is all about COLOR! We have a wide range of songs, there is a wide range of color sin the world afterall! So for your enjoyment, please have a  listen to Yellow Submarine by the Beatles. Ever seen the movie? It's quit.... interesting.
The Beatles - Yellow Submarine 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FZLIcQf47TQ


Here are some song facts for you to enjoy...


(from Wikipedia)
The album...
Yellow Submarine is the tenth studio album by English rock band the Beatles, released on 13 January 1969 in the United States and on 17 January 1969 in the United Kingdom. It was issued as the soundtrack to the animated film of the same name, which premiered in London in July 1968. The album contains six songs by the Beatles, including four new songs and the previously released "Yellow Submarine" (1966) and "All You Need Is Love" (1967). The remainder of the album was a re-recording of the film's orchestral soundtrack by the band's producer, George Martin.

The project was regarded as a contractual obligation by the Beatles, who were asked to supply four new songs for the film. Some songs were written and recorded specifically for the soundtrack, while others were unreleased tracks from other projects. The album was issued two months after the band's self-titled double LP (also known as the "White Album") and was therefore not viewed by the band as a significant release. Yellow Submarine has since been afforded a mixed reception from music critics, some of whom consider that it falls short of the high standard generally associated with the Beatles' work. It reached the top 5 in the UK and the US, and has been reissued on compact disc several times.


The film...
Yellow Submarine (also known as The Beatles: Yellow Submarine) is a 1968 British animated musical fantasy comedy film inspired by the music of the Beatles, directed by animation producer George Dunning, and produced by United Artists and King Features Syndicate. Initial press reports stated that the Beatles themselves would provide their own character voices; however, aside from composing and performing the songs, the real Beatles participated only in the closing scene of the film, while their cartoon counterparts were voiced by other actors.

The film received widespread acclaim from critics and audiences alike, in contrary to some of the Beatles' previous film ventures. It has also been credited with bringing more interest in animation as a serious art form. Time commented that it "turned into a smash hit, delighting adolescents and esthetes alike".

All You Need is Love Sneek Peek


Since we had to cancel last week, this week you deserve a sneek peek!! Due to some real life issues with a few of the dancers, we are doing our Love show the 18th and 25th! Night Player show will be on March 4th.

Here is a sneek peek of the show. You may remember this song from the movie Beavis and Butt-head Do America.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Love Rollercoaster
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1cbsLKXasQ


Here are some song facts for you to enjoy...

(from Wikipedia)

"Love Rollercoaster" is a song by American funk/R&B band Ohio Players, originally featured on their 1975 album Honey. It was composed by Beck, Bonner, Jones, Middlebrooks, Pierce, Satchell, and Williams. It was a number-one U.S. hit in January 1976, and became a Gold record. In Canada, the song spent two weeks at number two.

"Love Rollercoaster" was covered by the Red Hot Chili Peppers in 1996, recorded and produced by Sylvia Massy. This version includes original rap-based verses and additional lyrics provided by guest female backup singers, as well as the horn section being replaced with an approximation played on kazoos.

An animated music video was made for the song, featuring Beavis, Butt-head, and the band riding an amusement park roller coaster, intercut with scenes from the film. The song is played early in the movie as well, when Beavis and Butt-head arrive in Las Vegas. In the dance hall scene, a fictional funk band is shown performing the song live (the one appearing on the background of the single cover).

Although the song became a crossover hit, peaking at No. 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 Airplay chart and at No. 22 on the Mainstream Top 40 chart, it did not enter the top 10 on the Modern Rock Tracks chart (peaking at No. 14) and it failed to enter the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

The band has never performed the song live.

Here are some song facts for you to enjoy...

(from Wikipedia)

"Oh Yeah" is a single released in 1985 by the Swiss band Yello and featured on their album Stella. The song features a mix of electronic music and manipulated vocals. The song gained popularity after being featured in the films Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Secret of My Success, among other films. It has become a iconic anthem of the 1980s, and used to metaphorically represent lust (in various forms) and cocaine.
