Second Life Stuff


So, I head over to a concert in an art gallery with a show by an artist I had never heard of just to hear my favorite musician Louis Volare….

and there at the top, as I listen to music, I am drawn…I mean sucked into the absolute hypnotic mystery of this one photograph. He’s called the Haserot Angel….and he sits at a cemetery somewhere in Ohio.

The photographer, whom I only know as Eidolon Dreamscape in Second LIfe and Bittermuppet on Flickr has captured him, this mysterious crying angel in such a way that I myself am drawn to tears. Now I do not cry. I very rarely cry. But this picture (not the one here, but the one in Second LIfe…very similar to this but with the wings showing)…it actually made me feel for this ….statue!

Second life, real life, whatever. My real body was crying real tears and still is. Call it synchronicity or coincidence. It’s an incredible thing.

I am humbled by it…..drawn to my knees.

Good job, Eidolon!

Oh my!  New locations, new stuff, freebies, wow oh wow!

New sim just opened up recently and we are exclusive (so far) there regarding the Mer life!

And once there (in addition to the great music) you can teleport to all sorts of wonderful places such as

Another new shop is at the Barn in the very popular SLNE (New England) Sim, Nantucket Square:

Second life musician Louis Volare, (aka Louis Landon) has posed a challenge to his SL friends, and real live counterpoints. He is offering a daily free download of a brand new performance, a daily improv, for those of us who wish the war in Iraq to end. In the name of peace, he plays freely, every day. All he asks is that we share this gift with as many people as possible.

Peace Revolution

HIs music is so powerful it has brought me to tears….on more than one occasion. Here are his words on his gift to world peace:

  • I have decided to add a new improv to my MySpace page every day until the war in Iraq is over and our troops come home. It will be a free download. When possible, I will have a very short concert at the Peace Revolution! Center and will perform the improv that I will post at 9 pm SLT. If you take advantage of the free download, all I ask in return is that you e-mail the music out to as many people as possible and that you ask them to pray for peace. Together we can change the world.
    Love and Peace Always and Everywhere,
    Louis Volare aka Louis Landon

Go there now and spread the word!

These kids did it right, and they didn’t have a clue how until they actually did it! I love a good success story. So they meet, fall in love, decide to share their story via an independent film. Get it done, get it viral, and “screen” it on Second LIfe. Such a raw, brutally honest, sometimes funny, yet still tragic and at the same time kind of everyday story. Ipod owners saw it first, then Youtube, then Second LIfe. It’s a classic story that never grows old, told in techno geek funk of today’s whatever the term is now for yuppies. I loved it, and I hate I didn’t find it until now……

Second Life allows you to be/do create whatever and whomever you want to be, want to do, and all the other stuff you can only dream about in real life. Yet, many groups and activities which begin in-world often bleed into the real world, and vice-versa. While it is technically a game which begins on your desktop, it extends to real friendships, relationships, business opportunities and community involvement that is very much real, and no game at all.

If you have any notions about wanting to market your product or service in Second Life, I have a free gift available over at Santa Sal’s Big Christmas Giveaway event which just launched

Santa Sal Giveaway

This is a huge event and there are plenty of gifts there for non marketers as well!  These events are always fun, but Harris Fellman has really made his Sal character into quite a spectacle…lots of humor and even a little bit of controversy…

Speaking of Controversy!

Major uproar on Amelia Island going on…as we residents are being uprooted and booted off the island! I just paid my squatting fees for a month 6 days ago and now have no home as of Saturday!  We were all in kahoots over it last night. Apparently the island has been purchased and will be a Gorean community…. Ouch!

So, Pat (Koanwrangler)  has already found a new place for Portable Empire Island, I understand, so hopefully we will all be fine soon.

I will post the new SL URL as soon as I get it.

Thank you Torley Linden for all of your super duper Vids on SL!
