Club Pyramid

Outside:
Image

Inside:
Image

Club Pyramid is basically a popular hang-out spot for artist and employees signed to Pyramid Records. Although it's listed as a 21+ club, like most clubs ID clearance tends to be waived for very important individuals.

The Club: Looking through a number of layouts and interiors, however it will be a more upscale establishment with a bar. There'll be booths, as well as VIP sections and a Cigar Lounge. The mainstage will be fairly large, and have 3 poles to support up to three dancers a song when at maximum occupancy. Each dancer will perform for three songs on the main stage for their sets each hour, and during especially busy nights? They'll be expected to perform additional dances on the pole at the bar as well as the ones in back of the booths.

60" Flat Screens are stationed throughout the club to play music videos, and various sports including Basketball, Football & Hockey.

The club itself will have two stories. With an elevator as well as a V.I.P Bar upstairs. The dancer's changing and locker rooms are closed to the public and situated on the first floor in the rear of the club. There is a designated area for lap dances on the first floor. Although this is in a section that while secluded from the main area, is still open with a circular sofa unit lining the walls. The private rooms are upstairs, and cost various different prices.

The VIP rooms cost $10 for a basic but private booth with a curtain in addition to what the dancer charges for dances. A sofa is provided to sit on.
The Private rooms have doors, a pole in the center of the room, themes of some kind such as The Oval Office or Arabian Nights. They are $20 dollars a room, and have a more comfortable sofa.

The Champagne rooms are the most expensive rooms in the establishment. As well as the most intimate. There are less of them in comparison to the other rooms. However smoking is allowed in them, and in addition to the sofa? There are beds in the room, and televisions where customers can watch anything from television to purchased adult films. A hot tub is also incorporated into the room. The cost of the room also goes towards Champagne and these rooms cost $500 dollars and are for our high rollers. Since it is assumed that a good deal of time will be spent in these rooms? Food is allowed in them, and the patron is able to request outfits for their dancer to wear. Of course all acts signed to Pyramid records will have either access to the VIP or Champagne rooms.


HQ & Home


Image

Artist(s) under the Pyramid label can opt to live in a shared community (at no expense) home that also doubles as a recording studio for talent. The reason for which the shared home exists is to help build relationships amongst the many recording artists working under the label as well as foster an environment that inspires artist creativity and maturation. Similar to other house-based reality shows , the residents of the house's lives are recorded and filmed for a televised program, although "private time" can be edited out of filming at the request of the artist.
It's also not a bad place to stay if you're just starting out on your career, if you're strapped for cash or you just want the company.

-A gym/Dance studio
-A world-class kitchen
-A confessional room
-A swimming pool
-A mini-bowling alley
-A mini-bar
-A recording studio
-A zen garden
-Skyline Balconies
-10 bedrooms, 1 community shower.

Cast of the Summerhouse:




Here is the founder/ CEO of Pyramid Records

Image

Real Name: Bryce Howard
Relationship Status: Married
Age: 33
Race: African American
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 195 lbs
Eyes: Dark Brown
Networth: $68 million


Tattoos (if any): A Pyramid on his back as a tribute to the organization.
Education (If Any): A Master of Business Adminstration from Harvard and Poli-Sci Degree from Columbia University.
Backstory: His father a high ranking member of the Conservative Vice Lord street gang. A regional boss who oversees many opertions and believed in getting his children involved from early ages. To that end they were taught to be ruthless, but intelligent at the same time. They recieved the best educations that money could buy, and all of them took at least one life before the age of 16 to steel them to the world. Bryce and his 3 brothers and two sisters are all part of the organization and were tasked with pulling in revenue. Bryces' illegal enterprises are heroin distribution as well as a number of killers that he hires out. Many of his employees do not even know that they work for him, which is a testament to his ability to stay out of the spotlight. His real successes have been legitimate businesses such as a gym that trains MMA fighters and has turned out plenty of professionals, a casino, a record label that is quickly gaining steam as well as his flagship Gentleman's Club. He started it up after attending a bachelor party at one that was less than entertaining and sought to get the best talent and to make sure the club was top of the line. To that end, he only shows up when he wishes to sample the talent or to check on operations every now and then.

Job Description: He leaves the day to day to his Chief Operating Officer, but he owns it and gets final say of all the going ons' at the club or other ventures.



Personality: Notes Cold, ruthless, and methodical. He can be generous when it suits him, or he can be cruel. The only thing that really matters to him is profit, and he doesn't have a stomach for failure or for disobedience. Bryce is a proud family man, and his wife isn't outright concerned with the women that he sleeps with on the side. He doesn't bring any of it home, and he can be generous to girlfriends on the side as long as they follow his rules and don't try to bleed over into his personal life.

(Give it to me Baby by Rick James interludes )
When I was high as the sky
Out all night just dancin'
You say, 'Let's go home' {Come on, Rick, I'm tired, let's go home}
That's the time I start romancin'

You say how can I love you, how can I love you, baby
When your body keeps on movin'
I say wait till I squeeze you, oh
Maybe then you'll start to groovin', come on, girl

Give it to me, baby (Give it to me, baby)
Give it to me, baby (Give it to me, baby)


Recognizing the song as his ringtone , Bishop awoke from his slumber in lethargic fashion. A possible side-effect of the type of experience he had partaken from the previous night. The song serving as a fitting metaphor for his life. A feminine hand had secured itself around his torso sometime during the night, from the looks of who it had belonged to a redhead whom he had recognized as the lead singer of a popular band, and to the right of her, another arm had bound itself around the waist of the aforementioned girl, this one belonging to another artist he recognized, a nice looking honey-skinned shorty from the islands, both of whom were featured as prominent artists aligned with rival record companies. A satisfactory smirk crept onto his features upon his discovery, reaching for the cellphone atop his nightstand, he recognized the call as belonging to his older brother and boss Bryce, he would respond texting. "You won't believe who's in my bed right now ;)" , sending out the text-message.

A replying message soon prompted following the text he sent out. "I all ready know who you're with, and I don't care, there's some important matters I need to discuss with you ASAP. Need you at the HQ, fate of the business at stake!!!". Bishop shedding the comforters from his side sitting up against the corner of his bed , a look of disbelief written onto his face. He more than anyone understood his brother was not the practical joking type, scanning the last bit of text for a moment, trying to figure out just what might have occured, he took a shot of the still sleeping beauties with his phone before heading to exit the premises of the undisclosed personal estate.

A careful thumb brushed away some unruly curls. Theo was always an early riser. In this new life as well. He had been up since 5:30, making breakfast, dressing, tuning his guitar. After an omelette for himself, Theo had chopped up some of the house's fruit basket for his roommates. He snatched a pineapple morsel and took to his laptop.

This was all so comfortable. To the point of disbelief. The decor, the money, the momentary stillness. It was too odd not to be living in a small crap apartment in New York, whoring his music at clubs and street corners.

Theo breathed a happy sigh and returned to that past, for a sweet moment.

Mom, Dad, & Assorted Siblings,

Hey guys! I'm settling into the new house. I know I said I'd write you earlier, but it's been a crazy week. I recorded a single with some producers already. We're hoping it will get some radio play within the month. It still feels so surreal. I can't believe I'm in such a big label. And the reality show business? Big brother does exist I guess.

Anyway, I'm doing great. I should be able to see all you soon enough, I haven't started recording my first album yet.

Hit me back with some news from home!

Love you all

P.S. Expect some stuff in the mail. It's cruel to leave $1.6 mil sitting around.


He sent the message, returned quickly to Word. A naked document awaited him. Theo was quite sure it craved lyrics as bad himself. His fingers picked back up a staccato rhythm. Type, delete, edit, hum the bar, write notes instead of words, delete.

Elaine sucked in a breath before parting with her taxi.

She felt incredibly lucky. How had this luck come to her?

A suburban girl, destined to be the third orthodontist in her family. Instead, she chose a destiny of parties and liquor. And somehow, all this fun led to music. Music that she created. And now, music that gave her fame. Elaine had to smile. She knew how many musicians had faced trials she would never even meet before becoming famous. She figured that she'd be sharing this house with them. But not her. She wondered when her luck would run out. But the smile on her face and her heart warded away any negativity. Hell, she hadn't even known what negativity was since she had received that phone call.

Elaine lugged her dual suitcases from the taxi alone. The driver had held no love for her, mostly due to the hotel's mini bottles that she had toted and consumed with gusto in this cab. Elaine cursed her lack of strength as she made her solo trek up the driveway.

"Less clothes next time," she murmured.

Soon enough, she was inside thanks to that issued key. She left her bags at the door. There had to be someone fitter than her for the task of lugging them on another journey a top the staircase.

The insistent ringing was enough to rise Sabina from her sleep, and if she weren't surrounded by mountains of pillows and comforters, she would have gotten to her phone minutes before she got herself frustrated. The problem was, the ringing was coming from across the room and not just at an arms reach. By the time Sabina woke herself enough to get irritated, she'd managed to untangle herself from the sheets and pillows and attempted to jump from the bed, only to trip and stumble as one of her feet got caught. By the time she reached the phone, she was seething, breathing fire. For who could be calling her at this early hour. Flipping the phone open, she jerked it to her ear, "What?" came the venomous hiss, until her mother answered in an equally flushed manner.

Dressed in a sports bra and sleeping shorts, Sabina left little to the imagination when it came to night-wear, but it was hardly an attire most see her in. Crossing the room to disappear into the large bathroom, her voice softened as she continued to speak to her mother, the language she spoke in rolling off her tongue in an exotic fashion. About an hour later, she'd be descending downstairs, showered and fresh to face the day, dressed in a bright summer dress that came to just above her knees. Her thick black hair was braided into a thick coil to hang behind her, resembling a tail.

"Good morning," she called out to Theo, as she crossed to the kitchen, opening up the large stainless steel fridge. She hadn't noticed a new face walk in just yet, but once she closed the fridge door, with a carton of orange juice in her hands, she noted an Asian girl standing just off in the doorway of the lobby. "Hello?" Sabina called out to her with uncertainty.

Re: Pyramid Records

I like this pace, this is good. If the first two days are sign of things to come. By Thursday or Friday we should be able to start, I believe. We'll probably pick up a lot of players when the roleplay becomes listed.
