So here we are - the final weekend review of January 2012. This month has gone by so quickly, but as the saying goes 'time flies when you are having fun'. Of course they also say that 'time flies like an arrow, but fruit flies like a banana', but we shall pass over that one as the talk of bananas makes me giddy.
Friday started off for us as it usually does with a visit to Bar Soho where we had a Best in Wild West theme with DJ Billy 'The Kid' Arentire and hostess Lisa. This helped everyone unwind before we all turned in to tie dye clad hippies for Madame Lala's London Revue. Special guests were a tribute to Peter, Paul and Mary and the contest was somewhere between a peace protest and a love in. Although if I am really honest, from the state of how some people were dressed it was more like a protest against good taste...
|Peter, Paul and Mary (as opposed to Mary, Mungo and Midge)|
|The peace protest|
|Mapoo lets rip|
|The crowd shake their pixels for Ms Little|
And that is it from auntie Bailey for this week. All that remains for me to say, in the spirit of Friday's event at Madame Lala's establishment, is "May peace shower down on you".

Remembering the extraordinary talents of Amy Winehouse.
A month ago we brainstormed with Mapoo Little about an idea for an Amy Winehouse concert on Saturday evening. We thought it would be fun to have Mapoo using her powerful and tuneful voice to sing the songs of Amy and for us to come up with a satirical stage and set reflecting the chaotic lifestyle of this iconic singer.
Given the sad news yesterday of Amy dying in the afternoon, we felt inappropriate to continue with the concert as planned. Many people were in our collecting IM's urging us to go ahead with the planned schedule, saying it would pay homage, whilst an equal amount advised against it, saying it would distasteful given that the news had just broken.
We decided to disappoint fans, rather than risk offending people and Mapoo put on a truly amazing concert featuring the songs of Lady Gaga with only about fifteen minutes notice of a change of schedule. If ever a decision went down to the wire, this was it. Rightly or wrongly, we decided to reschedule Amy Winehouse for another day once everyone gets a chance to comes to terms with the fact that this immensely talented, yet tragic character is no longer with us.
During the concert, Mapoo paid tribute to Amy and sang two songs as tribute, including "Rehab", which was extremely poignant, if not a little unnerving.
People were saying that if only she hadn't done the drugs, pills and booze, that we would have this talent going on to greater things and producing more soulful songs for us for years to come. Could this be true, or was the very lifestyle, the chaotic and unhappy existence fuelled by an aggressive relationship and the mood altering substances, that put her mind into the dark and remote recesses from where she could write her musical, bleak poetry? We shall never know.
We have all seen Amy Winehouse recently, a shadow of her former self and whilst we are shocked at her passing, it was not entirely unexpected. It is immensely sad that anyone so young should self destruct in such a public manner and that she felt she could only access her creativity by being in a mind-set that untimately lead to her death. Amy Winehouse, singer, songwriter and talking-point was 27.

Visitors were treated to another super concert this weekend given by live performer Mapoo Little.
Mapoo had created a circus top, complete with elephants, giraffes, high wire and trapeze, especially for her Cher concert here in London City.
Singing like a pearl as usual, Mapoo involved the audience as more and more people flocked to London City when they heard the circus was in town.
With 83 people at the concert, more than twice the capacity of our old sim, this was an extra special night for all. Good company, superb music and spectacular show.
Mapoo returns to London City on Saturday 23rd July with an Amy Whinehouse concert. Don't miss it!
The Sunday sim race was one of our favourites to date. This time we decided to flood the sim and have a power boat race.
It was the start of a heatwave in real life London and with many of our visitors coming from england in RL, some water to paddle in was especially welcome.
Don't forget, its Amy MacDonald in concert next Saturday.
Have a great week, whichever world you are in.

It has sure been an eventful Weekend at your favourite London destination, Mainland London.
Friday saw the delightful return of Demis Roussos wowing the crowd in Madame Lala's, with his energetic songs, including the show stopping climax, Zorba. Everyone danced until dawn!
Demis Roussos Greek singer, best known for being the main musical partner of movie soundtrack composer and electronic musician Vangelis throughout the 1960s and 1970s. Roussos has sold over 40 million albums worldwide.
Mapoo gave an incredible performance. Her voice was powerful and sultry, as she boomed out the classics, from Private Dancer to Nutbush.
Being a popular destination, Regent's Park remained at full capacity throughout the evenings events including Mapoo, Bar Soho and Madame Lala's. As we always recommend that you arrive early to avoid disappointment!
Sunday morning's Coffee and Donut Kickstart saw the early birds gather in the park for the a catch-up on the weekend. This early morning gathering is particularly popular with those who for various reasons were unable to attend the night before, but want to know how it went and if there is any gossip!
A Killer Cucumber was discovered at the Sunday Kickstart, but was promptly detonated.
Due to dodgy stock, the afternoons Coffin Race was held over to the following weekend, when an unfortuate side effect was discovered sending people a few million feet into the air.
By the time we had all found each other again, black storm clouds had gathered on the horizon and we thought it was probably time to take cover. The sun was well and truly over the yard-arm, so we rode the bus to the Star & Garter pub, to start the evening off with a Pub Quiz and an old movie that everyone could either watch or pull to pieces. The movie last night was from 1937, Will Hay in "Oh, Mister Porter".

|The scene is set for an Evening with Madame Lala.|
People often ask Madame Lala to dig deep into her record collection which spans a few centuries and over crank some old songs to modern disco standards.
This morning, during a gin induced depression, Madame Lala sat cleaning all her old scratched vinyl and has decided to throw a cheese and whine party from 1pm PDT in Madame Lala's
Her gramaphone is ready to play all her 33's at 45 and her 45's at 78. She's bought a new needle and Lala hopes you will come and reminisce, laugh and cry at these old records that she has scraped the barnacles off.
Please Bring A Bottle
