Wow! KK has Never been busier than now in SL!

I made the decision to move The Merry Dolphin (my mermaid shop and playground) just before things started really heating up for SL Peacefest! Not smart, but things just kinda happen that way sometimes!

The shop is no where near ready…I can’t find half my inventory or the playground itself!
( Lesson #1 create a temp folder when you move so you can find it all quickly when you unpack! Lol didn’t I just post about this? Don’t you just love it when you don’t take your own advice? )

I will post new landmark when it’s ready for you.

Meanwhile I’ve gotten a good start on the page for the Performers on the peacefest blog. Please stop by and visit your favorite artists’ page, and leave a comment! This helps them and it helps Peacefest by getting the word out faster. More links is good!

So visit and link away my friends!

It’s all so easy! If only in rl could we manage to be so fast an efficient. I toured a sim last night that was used for a large event put on my friends at Cafe Wellstone. They pulled in lots of newbies to Second Life, and I was amazed at how organized and well thought out the whole space was. A nice “mall” area with tutorials, skins and tips for those just getting in so they could get up to speed quickly and enjoy the festivities. Beautiful grounds, well mapped, and user friendly for new and old Secondlifers alike. The whole thing would be a massive logistical nightmare in rl.

Funny too the tour was just after a “meeting”, for SL Peacefest (coming up in just over 3 weeks!). Like real life only much easier, faster, and cheaper! The whole group is really pitching in as we get closer to the event. I feel a real sense of teamwork happening!

A friend invited me to a group as they prepare for a wedding. So clever! Just start a group, then send one message to all as things progress. No stamps, no “save the date” cards. Just a group. Simple!

One of my favorite organizing tools in SL is the inventory window. You can set up multiple folders with names to help que you for what you are looking for, such as “dresses”, “home decor”, “hud apps”, “skins”, etc. Now if I could only carry over 4 thousand items on my person at all times and simply click on a folder to make it jump out for me in rl! That would be Sweet! Maybe someday….

Hey SL friends!

Last week we had our SL Peacefest 08 kickoff fundraising event. We had an anonymous matching donor and made over $L50,000 for our peacefest charities!

Woot!

What fun this was for me! I had never sailed before….Thanks so much to Julia Ceres for letting me ride along!

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!

 

Yes the people are wonderful…in fact, that is a necessary part of the whole SL music experience. Go to a live concert right in your own living room? Yes you can. I am a business owner, sometimes companion, friend, and other things on Second Life, but after all, it is the music experience that keeps me logging in again and again.

Musicians pay a huge price to perform in world. They work for tips only, no tickets necessary. And with the low Linden to Dollar ratio, they really do work for peanuts…make that Less than peanuts.

Yet were it not for these fearless few who sing and play their souls out for us, I would never have lasted so long in this realm. It is more than soothing and uplifting. It is knowing you are there, with the performers and audience in some way, all experiencing the same live performance at once.

We don’t deserve such joy. Yet we embrace it happily, and sometimes take it for granted. Let us appreciate these selfless SL musicians and tip them heartily whenever we enjoy a performance. Go often, and be entertained…soothed….even lifted up, with our SL live musicians.

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……
