The Nightflowers competition on www.enya.com ends. The winning names are: Fragile Moon, The truelove found across the night (Ancient) and Kan Hooromay Eepha. Three extra prizes be awarded at The End of The Games. Roma will award prizes to three people who submitted names for flowers that already exist! Roma may be a tricky and sneaky puzzle master, but she's always generous with prizes. Roma's note, left in the Castle at www.enya.com:

Hello Everyone,

Congratulations to the winners of the 'Nightflower' competition. Well done to all of you, you had some pretty inventive names! the prizes will be announced after The Loxian Games. It may interest you all to know that there will be three extra prizes awarded after the Games. Why? Because there were three names submitted which already exist! But you will have to wait until the Games finish to find out who the three extra prizes will be awarded to. I can't give you the names of the nightflowers as you may encounter them during the Loxian Games.

Well, maybe. Maybe not.

Well done to all!

Roma Ryan

Hello Everyone,

The first of Autumn - earth-time - approaches! Although The Loxian Games will not commence on this date, nevertheless, to celebrate the First of Autumn there will be a special event. As the first of Autumn reaches us all at slightly different times, the event will begin just after midnight on Monday 21st September and end at midnight on Wednesday 23rd September. Please to to the library on Roma Ryan's website and find the Nightflowers. Obviously, as this is a Loxian Games event, the winners won't know what they have won until the end of The Games. Have fun!

Cover of The Very Best of Enya

September 19, 2007

It's the album cover that launched a 100 controversies. The artwork for The Very Best of Enya is posted on www.enya.com. The new artwork was announced on Unity several days in advance of Warner sending it out to its affiliates. A cool well done to Roma Ryan for letting the forum have first peek at the new cover.


September 7, 2009

The Second Loxian Games: The websites are starting to change--Romaryan.com, Nicky Ryan.net, certain parts of enya.com, as Roma uploads her terribly sneaky and downright dastardly teasers of what's to come with the next Game. In a surprise move that left us all reeling, she snuck into Unity this afternoon and had the infamous Mr. Nigel Borealis Australis post a message on her behalf. Yep--the games are coming, and she's not telling when! Beware; Roma's at it again!

September 4, 2009

The Second Loxian Games were announced on Unity today, an exclusive announcement to the Forum. No start date has been given yet, but it sounds like it's going to be soon.

In other news, several online retailers, including CD Japan have pre-orders for a special edition of the "very best of" Enya cd due out in November, which includes a dvd with documentary footage and, perhaps, music videos. We're dealing with rumor city here. Who knows what's going to be on dvd--a re-released and updated music video collection, the rumored biography project from the Galway ceremony in 2007? The Japan release of the compilation is set for November 18th. It should come out in the U.S. on November 17th. After a quiet doze through the Summer, Unity is getting quite busy these days!

26/8/09: 11:57 a.m.
Hello everyone,

It's been quite a long time since our last communication. I hope you've all had a chance to relax during the summer holidays. As you will see soon on the Home Page, Warner Music will be releasing a new 'Best of Enya' album this November 16th. They have asked Enya, Nicky and myself to choose the tracks, which we are in the process of doing at the moment. They will also release a special edition which will contain both DVD and documentary footage. I will keep you posted as we progress with this. Hope you've all been keeping well.

A listing for a new Enya "best of" compilation has appeared on www.play.com, The Very Best of Enya, with a release date of November 16, 2009. Neither Aigle nor Warner have yet made an official announcement, but in the past, play.com has proven to be a reliable source of early Enya release information. The Treecat would be very happy to find the new Enya compilation titled My! My! Time Flies! The Very Best of Enya, and using that gorgeous photo of Enya standing by the lake that was used on the Swedish MMTF promo cd. My My! Wouldn't that be the best Enya album cover since The Memory of Trees?

Clip from video Trains & Winter Rains

October 22, 2008 The new video for Trains and Winter Rains is now available to view at AOL.com, Trains & Winter Rains This is an extremely slick and contemporary video, featuring black and white photography, bright neon colors and the hard sheens of glass and metal of a big city landscape. It's a radical, and welcome, departure for Enya videos. If you want Enya to put on the velvet robes and go back to the Celtic mists, forget it. She's stylishly dressed, black gloves, silver jewelry--a contemporary woman in an upscale, contemporary landscape. Enya, you go, girl!
