    Aurora looks good, maybe a lil memory heavy. so far i dont think it has the option for a message to show along with the alarm

    I don't think it's impossible: In the create an alarm window, there's a place "Run: Drag application or file here". For that, you could make an applescript file to prompt a message of choice.
    About the memory usage I don't know, I use it occasionally but I haven't monitored its consumption. Well, at least I haven't experienced it slowing down my computer in any obvious way.

    I have been using this Alarm Clock application since 10.5 or so. Sadly, it does not seem to be generally available anymore, so I have attached it here. It still works great on Yosemite.

    It runs in the menu bar, lets you do timer, alarm clock, or stopwatch. It lets you choose a song for the alarm with gradual volume increase. It was free when it was available, and I still have not found a better alarm clock application for the Mac.
