Pop Music and Party Clubs in Second Life- Ccoursey Reporting...


 Are you in need of something different?   Maybe something a little more playful and loud?  Pop music is a global commercial music culture with public appeal. It is a collection of sounds influenced by various genres including, urban, dance, Latin, rock and country. You can find a variety of Pop and Party Clubs in Second Life that keep the energy flowing.
            Visiting Pop Clubs with friends I’ve learned this type of venue has a bit of a different vibe. These clubs are unique in the way things were usually done in Second Life.  It seems the more gesturing the better, as long as they keep the mood uplifted and tone upbeat.  DJ's will talk during the music, some personally thanking tippers or even greet you as you come through the door.  Hosts are friendly, laugh constantly, encouraging dancers, gestures, and teasing.  They didn't rely on conversations so much as friendly 'we are here to party' chatter. 
 Stepped into a different kind of atmosphere by visiting some of these Pop/Party club scenes



Big Daddy's
            At some point, everyone has heard of or been to Big Daddy's.  There is good reason... This club is fun.  It has a great mix of party music from pop to rock, the hosts are friendly with constant chatter, and the club is well put together.   You teleport in and it is best to move to the side and just take a moment to rez, because there is people here day or night so if you're like me it is going to take a minute.  The hosts here were more of the type I was used to having conversations in nearby and whenever I go I have to say they involve everyone.  They greet everyone like old friends.  It is very well put together with the stage clear and upfront so you can find the dj and host easily.
 In honor of October being breast cancer awareness month, they even decorated for it.  The whole environment is fun, promoting a good time.  This club is always hopping. 



Energy Club
            This place was new to me, but there was no disappointment. It lived up to its name each time I dropped by.  I loved the way it flowed, but let me explain how different it was than what I am used to.   Once I stopped by, there was German, Spanish, and English being spoken. With the assistance of translators conversation happened easily and naturally, where there might be a stutter in other places with so many varieties this seemed like a normal every day thing.  There were a lot of nationalities, there was a lot of energy too. It was fun.  They played gestures often, but stayed upbeat.  There were a lot of older avi's at this place, In fact, I was a younger one.  The DJ's were engaging the crowd, they talked whileI was there instead of the ones that just play music.  Even the shift change went unnoticed until someone spoke.  Lichy Love Portal was there the first time I went, and I have to mention her, because she was great.  She was friendly and kept the crowd actively involved. She was quick to answer questions which makes people feel like they are being heard.   There is a lots of interaction at this club.  It was surrounded by water, a blue overtone to the whole places with dances in the floor and as Lichy said "in her belly", this place is a must see.  I was surprised to have never heard of it before, but impressed with it.   It is definitely a place I will go when I am in the mood for party.  


Rez Nightclub
            Another well known and busy club in Second Life is Rez.  I chose it because it is a place where one of my favorite dj's might show up, DJ A.F.I.  She is always fun to watch, a real sweetheart to speak to.  Rez is a nightclub and mall combined, and from what I understand a sister club to Club Ambrosia.  Landing you walk through a line of stores to get to the club.  It is always busy. Rez is another place that might take you a moment to rez everything.  The music is a great mix, each dj is different with mixed styles. It is a great build, the stages are all around the floor for patrons to dance.  Best part for me was the pink floor.  Dances are different here for both couples and singles, there were some I was unfamiliar with that I had to see.  If you are looking to be around people at a fun upbeat environment, then Rez is a good place togo, day or night.   


Woods Club
            When I was looking for pop clubs a friend told me to check out Woods.  I found that you need to come during PM SL times to catch people  here though.  This build is gorgeous.  I loved the grey with gold trim, the dances in the woods sign on the floor, and the bars and tvs set up around the place.  The dances were common, I recognized most from other clubs, but they did match the music.  The music here I would say are more like party music, not so much pop.  The atmosphere was great though. It is very upbeat.  It was a nice mix of avatars here from 26 days old to 6 years.  Some friendly chatting in my box and nearby, others were like me spectating and enjoying the scene.  Friendly hostess and DJ, decorated for Halloween to add to the theme of the month.  It is a nice place to hang out sobring friends to this one. If this is your type of music and you wish for more relaxed conversation then this would be your club.  



The Black Inferno
            I have to admit I fell in love with this last place.  It was a mix of hip hop, club, pop, reggae, and a bit of Rhythm and blues.   The Black Inferno was one of those places you could teleport into and have to sit back a moment to take it all in.  The club was very colorful.The build is beautiful. There are steps on both sides of the club room.  The Dj was a talker, fun and upbeat, his music selection was a great mix to match his attitude.  The hostess, whom I fell in love with, Tahiry was all over my box letting me know where things were since she realized I had never been, and kept nearby flowing with several conversations at once.  A multitasker!  She let me know that Mondays, Fridays, and Sundays were tag free here, but there was a charge to come on other days.  She did say even though you pay 300L for a tag, the Black Inferno gives back to its members.  You add them to your pics and you have a chance to win lindens and gifts from their sponsers, plus they are good with club contests.
There was a manager when I was there and she was in nearby with Tahiry. She was friendly, taking a moment to talk to me too.  I was told The Black Inferno was the only four in one club on the grid, meaning, they had a male strip club, a female strip club, a regular club (that I visited), and a casino in one.  The club had a nice mix of people when I visited, and they didn't spread out like other clubs sticking in a tighter knit group they included everyone, laughing and dancing.  It was great.  I had a lot of fun here, I will be visiting again.

Linda Lauren's Color Forecast™!


It’s Money Honey! A Guide to Finding a Job and Making Lindens in Second Life- Debby Sharma Reporting...


Unlike real world where there is always necessity to fulfill our basic needs, comforts and luxuries, in virtual worlds we do have these needs as well. You may often hear virtual world being an escape for us, a window to live our imaginative life to the fullest. So, when there is no requirement of any necessity to be fulfilled, we still love to shop.
Who does not like to shop? Our bags are full of items we used once in our entire virtual life time or never used at all. Most of us know how to bag the pennies and feel the struggle.
Here are a few tips for the starters and a list for the existing Second Life residents:
The following are the ways to earn lindens if you are just starting.


·         Trivia Balls
There are clubs in Second Life that have trivia balls. A random general knowledge question is asked in local. If you give correctly answer you get a few lindens.
 For a starter this is one of the best ways to earn some. One such venue is located in Wasteland Reloaded http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sommerinsel/225/34/23 , answer trivia questions to win L$2.

You can also use your event search and type in the keyword “trivia” to find other  places to earn lindens with your knowledge.


·         Contest Boards
One of the main activities which helped me purchase my first home in second life are contests. Clubs across the grid host contests to dress according to a theme. To participate in most contests, it it required to join their group as a VIP and click the “Join Contest” on the Contest Board. After about two hour or at the end of the shift, voting starts. Some clubs either select one winner or three or as many winners as they choose. Participants may ask for votes during the voting time if the rules permit. They vary between venues hosting contests.  Contest participants can win a substantial of amount of lindens this way.
 Most clubs put in L$250 which is split among winners. However, clubs may give out as high as L$2000 up for grabs. For example: Club Vanity http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Carnival%20Land/93/198/1804 Energy Club http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Energy/103/112/21



·         Traffic Huds
There are many huds available on the SL marketplace. Add the hud to your outfit. Each hud has  info on how to operate.  Always read the info before you start. Once you wear the hud, you will be given a place. Teleport to the place and move around for 2 or 3 minutes to get paid. Only condition is you can’t stand at a place for  a long time or be away from keyboard. These were introduced to increase traffic in a region. It was once upon a time a good suggestion for business in SL. However, it has lost its magic for the business in the later years. For a person wearing a traffic hud, one can earn as much as L$20 per hour. A few links to get huds on market place are;

·         Sploder
Once you have a few lindens in hand, you can play the Sploder at clubs. Pay the Sploder and you might get lucky and win some extra lindens. At some sploders, you may have a loss too. So, I prefer the no lose sploders. If you pay L$20, there is guarantee that you would get it back. The hope is you might get much more and never lose. One such club you may want to visit is The drunken lizard beach http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Portimao/212/158/22.

      Park your avatar
There are some places where you may park your avatar for a while to get paid. Sometimes you have the option to go away from keyboard for long time and just camp. It is one of the ways to increase traffic and make some easy lindens.

Neko Launge http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Volokov/23/98/286 pays L$1per hour. While I was visiting I saw old avatars about 4 years old doing the same.

The following are  ways to earn lindens if you are an existing player in Second Life. You may also adapt the above ways too. These require either a few Linden Dollars or experience to start off.



·         Affiliate Business
Under the business category look for affiliate programs in the marketplace. Here is the link https://marketplace.secondlife.com. All you need is to rent a shop space. There are businesses that give you the franchise to sell their product for a percentage of commission.
·         Photography
It is one of the most cherished careers in Second Life. If you can take a good shot and you have an unusual view to things, you may want to take photography as your career choice. A good graphics card helps. There are tutorials available on you tube and various blogs. One of the upcoming photographers, Val Valsnia started with L$50 per picture and now makes L$500 each. There are many great photographers. It is a tough market but you have a creative look, you are spot on with lot of customers.


·         Custom build
There is always a need for builders. For starters try building something and put it on marketplace. If your product has a wild appeal, you may soon open a store in world. To learn building, you may join the most active group in Second Life, Builders Brewery. Here is the link for more information on the class schedule. http://buildersbrewery.com

·         Animation
With building comes the basic animations. Although there are many poses in the marketplace, there is always a need for a few realistic ones. There are very few pose makers inworld. This one has a great demand among customers. They are wanted by builders, designers, bloggers, models, fashion magazines and end users. You can learn to make animations on Youtube. Among other free software, I prefer one called Qavimator http://www.qavimator.org/  to make animations and save them in .bvh file and later upload to SL. Note that it takes L$10 to upload per file.

·         Textures
If you are good with digital art, this one is for you. However, if you are a starter, there are many tutorials available on the web. Artists would normally suggest PS, i.e., Photoshop and it the best. But if it is too much to start with, try playing around in http://www.picmonkey.com . Pixlr is almost similar to PS, but it does not support PSD files. You can work around it with PNG files. Here is the link to the editor http://apps.pixlr.com/editor/ . The cost of uploading a texture is L$10 each. Here is the catch, either you may sell seamless textures on the marketplace or if you are artist in real life, you may sell your art inworld. Before selling textures, I suggest you to read the TOS and be aware of the infringement rights.

·         Scripting
Animations or builds do not function like real life without the scripts. All hands down to the scripting experts. If you know java or any programming language, you may be able to do a little bit of scripting. Scripting is taught in world as well. Builders Brewery has scripting classes. This is another career which has a great demand in SL. You may sell scripts on marketplace. If you look into second life community there are special on hand jobs available for scripters.

·         Modelling
By modelling, I mean fashion models. Clothing, accessory designers and fashion magazines are on the look-out for models. There are modelling schools in world. But, they are not cheap. Total fees may vary from L$500 to L$10,000. There are free modelling schools (FMU) available as well. To be among the top celebrity models, it is best suggested to get into the best schools to get maximum exposure.


·         Estate Sales agent
Although this job can be taken by a newbie too, but the estate owners normally do not hire newbies. The estate owners looks for some experience and stability to hire these sales agents. After one is hired, they get  rigorous training for about a week. You can earn a percentage of commission selling virtual land in SL. This percentage when converted to pennies is so much, that you might be the owner of a small land yourself living lavishly. But the only requirement is that you have to be really good at marketing. You may hear the job opening either from a friend or community in Second Life but seldom at any agency.



·         Re-Sale
Do you love breedables? I do. You must have a home in second life to breed and take care of them. Breedables range from fantasy animals like meeros to pets like dogs, cats to farm animals like horses and plants. Breed your pets and sell the younger ones in a rented space.  Another kind of resale is to sell food and weapons etc. Food? Yes, food. If you roleplay as a Gorean, an avatar has to eat food to do the various activites in Gor. There is a world of Gor who have traders ad merchants selling food, bricks of copper, gold and silver and weapons which are based on G&S Hud.



·         Advertising/Public Relations
To be an advertiser, you must have an active group in world and a space to put up the ads of your clients. Show your marketing skills, bring in clients and get them customers. You can be an Ad agent for The SL Enquirer and earn a good commission Just click here to apply for a job with the SL Enquirer

 You can also create your own agency where others come to buy and sell products and services.


Other professions may include a machinima artist, role players like doctors, gynaecologists, nurses, bloggers, writers, policemen etc. One can search for more in http://search.secondlife.com.





·         Jobs Agencies
Ever since March 2012, I have always been looking for a job. The best place to look for job is at job agencies. Click on the board to receive a note card for application. Even  if you have no virtual work experience, you can still fill out an application.
 There are jobs for managers, hosts, DJs and dancers throughout the year. Other jobs also are available from time to time like sales agent, writers for various magazines and news sources as well as scripting and building for land owners.


If you need training with any club jobs you can visit Club Staff University http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Portimao/212/158/22 . It is a learning school or clubs jobs as well as a training facility for new employees.
A few landmarks you may want to visit while job hunting are: Job Squad http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sommerinsel/225/34/23 Jobs 4 u Job Center Agency work and employment http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/No%20Devil/201/138/22 Pisces Jobs http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/No%20Devil/201/138/22

AVIE POLL: How to Handle a Nasty SL Break-up-Ccoursey Reporting


"Never make permanent decisions on temporary feelings." -Wiz Khalifa

I asked several people "What advice would you give someone going through a nasty SL break-up?" and I gathered a bit of what is called 'easier said than done'.  A few said "Grief the idiot until you feel better", but that is only going to result in you getting in some trouble plus only a temporary feeling of satisfaction.  If you are involved in any kind of relationship in SL there will eventually be fall outs, some worse than others.  Here are what a few had to say about them.





Cris:  What advice would you give to someone that is going through a nasty SL break-up?
Newt:  The best thing is to have a cheap hide out home and/or get an alt to get away from it all to recollect yourself.

Cris:  nods... So you think it helps to escape a minute?

Newt:  Yes.



Cris:  Do you have any advice for people going through nasty SL break-ups?

Natty:  Oi!  That's a loaded question it really depends on the situation.... But don't be intimated and stand your ground would be the basic advice I would give.  Easier said than done though LoL

Cris:  Does it get easier?

Natty:  Basically you have to keep in the back of your mind the reasons you left him or her or he or she left you and come to terms with it just like a RL relationship.  And try to stay away from them if you can.



Cris:  What advice would you give a person going through a nasty SL break-up?

Dan:  The best thing to do is center your attention on other things cause the pain is dreadful.  Spend some time, maybe try to figure out what you did to make it a bad break up.  Don't talk bad about the person you dissolved with rather his/her fault if it was bad break.  The steam will still be there so leave well enough alone and try to move on if you really loved that person keep the love deep inside you, hold them close to your heart.
Cris:  Do you think it is best to give it time or jump right back in the dating game?

Dan:  Oh definitely give it time for the pain to heal.



Cris:  What advice would you give someone going through a nasty SL break-up?

Sins:  As in how nasty?

Cris:  In general...

Sins:  Well, I must say, it depends on the depth of nasty happening.  Mute and Cut it saves you from the drama.  Most of mine are friends so...  But to give the best advice it depends what is going on.

Cris:  Do you let people wallow or do you push them to get back into the dating game?

Sins:  Well... I say let it come to you... not you go to it... all in time in SL.  When one does not look for it, it tends to find you not you find it.  I never did.  Every situation is different but if it can't end nicely... then mute... and move on, there's too much out there.



Cris:  What advice would you give to someone going through a nasty SL break-up?
Oz:  As in coping with it afterwards?

Cris:  Pretty much.

Oz: Hmm....  For one to be able to cope with an SL break-up, all it really takes is time, depending how close you were to your partner.  Some say that SL is just a game, and it is, but the emotions one usually shows is often real.  The effort that somebody puts into a relationship is real.  Others may find it as a joke, but to those who truly care about their partner, the pain one feels is usually real.  You may never see their actual face, or hear their actual voice.  Here, you're able to grow an emotional and mental connection that you otherwise would have never been able to anywhere else.  The sad truth about dealing with a break-up, is that, the closer you were with your ex-partner, the harder it is to get over it.  Hang out with some friends, clear your mind, and just try to enjoy yourself.  You'll find yourself having fun sooner than later.  You'll forget it ever happened or why you were even sad in the first place.


Cris:  What advice would you give a person going through a nasty SL break-up?
Test Cluny:  1)Strip club 2) Loose shorts 3) Lap dance chair 4) 3 hours 5) $300.... Will clear the mind and body and only happy thoughts past and future will flow.



On that note, it really depends on the situation and the people involved.  It's best to try to keep it friendly, because really if it isn't fun why do it?  At some point you liked, even loved, each other and it will be hard enough without becoming nasty.  Good luck and remember even in SL you're never alone, someone somewhere is or has gone through something similar.
