ART & ENTERTAINMENT: Pop Art Display opened in Second Life-Sandy Demina reporting...

Morghana Savira
Staff Reporter
• Monday, December 20, 2010
A new exhibition area devoted to Pop Art has been opened on 23 November :the Pop Art Display (P.A.D.) .

By raising daily commonplace reality to the artistic dimension Pop Art accomplishes its transfiguration: it sheds light on what is closer yet often invisible to us and through such an artistic process it penetrates the meaning of life in mass society.

The identity of form and content in the advertised product undergoes a process of estrangement and reversal. In pop works of art the sexy element of images becomes disquieting, euphoria has a shade of melancholy, glamour and make-up are covered with a dim layer, precision is turned into provocation.

Pop Art has widened two key concepts of modern times, “double” and “dislocation”, and has highlighted mass media as the incessant producers of the double of everything. Most of our experience is the experience of the “other” reality, the one that the media have arranged for us and communicate to us.

December 2010-SL Toys For Tots -Stacey cardalines Reporting...

All Stacey wants for Christmas is help for Toys For Tots... but she'll take a new pocketbook if Santa has one laying around.
Stacey visits Toys For Tots...
Without going on for too long about my personal life, I'll share this with you. I've been rich and I've been poor, and it's better being rich.
One of the better parts of beig wealthy is Christmas. I get some genuinely cool stuff. My husband, who is somewhat of an oaf, has actually figured out shopping. I'm French, and- especially with presents- the French have a well-deserved reputation for being difficult.
So... he simply gives his check one week to our babysitter Ellen, Ellen then takes me to the mall, and I get whatever I like. I just have to act all happy and unexpectant on Christmas morning, and everyone goes home happy.
Last year, I got a lovely overcoat, a necklace, and a trip to Quebec. The year before, I really cleaned up... new Volvo (the nanny only chose the color for me, after asking me what color I wanted). My nanny has since gone off to Dartmouth, but the Colonel simply switched gears and now my kid sister and I are going to the mall this Saturday.

SPORTS & LEISURE- Dance Ballet Academy Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

At 5 feet tall, Ballerina Stacey can still kick Kobe Bryant in the face.
You wouldn't have to hang out with me that long to figure out that I'm sort of a jock.
I'm the only one of my girlfriends who owns a hockey jersey. I'm the only person I've met here (outside of the people I met at the particular sims) who has watched a football practice. I'd have watched a football game as well, but I was in jail after a fistfight.
A good psychiatrist could probably convince me that I have some unresolved love-me-Daddy issues from my childhood, but I don't have time for that kind of sh*t. I just play a lot of golf, and maintain a level of fashion that makes Butch jokes not really work on me.
However, like any girl, I have a great deal of admiration for those who are Graceful. I'm not graceful, and say "Ooops" as much as "Hello" when I try to navigate a busy nightclub. It carries over into real life, as I was an awful waitress. You were getting your martini shaken, not stirred.
Of course, someone who plays on the computer as much as I do is bound to develop a little bit of manual dexterity, and a girl can use that skill to become a paragon of femininity. That's where this article is headed today.
There are certain girls who wield a bit more clout than others when people look at the Fairer Sex as a whole. Princesses, cheerleaders, diva-type singers, head nurses, Best Actresses and Supporting Aactresses, Miss (Your State Here), etc... if you're 8 year old daughter wants to grow up to be one, you know what I'm talking about.

SL ARTS & LITERATURE: Discovering an Ancient Celebration with a Virtual Twist.

The Yule Festival in OZLAND began December 10th and will continue through January 2nd , 2011. It boasts a vast array of events, an incredible festival site in the ruins of an Ancient Roman Fort, and a heart and celebratory spirit in the Celtic tradition. The Yule Festival is the first of eight such annual events produced by The Wild Fox Rovers that coincide with the Celtic Year. Poetry, Storytelling, Music and a Snow-person building contest all are part of this diverse celebration. This event caught my attention because of my interest in the bardic and oral storytelling traditions of the Celtic people. With the Festival being almost a month long, there is still plenty of time to catch the great events and enjoy the spirit of Yule in Second Life.

SPORTS & LEISURE-GOHA Season Ending Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

The Puckettes... if you need a laugh, the right wing of the cheer formation is Kacey and Stacey.
Last chance to catch the biggest hockey league on SL!

The Global Online Hockey Association is concluding their 11th season Tuesday night. Come on down and check out some virtual hockey!

Even if you don't like hockey, come down and watch yours truly do some cheerleading. I'm a Puckette...the short one, if you end up sitting in the Heavens.

GOHA runs a very well-done hockey league. They have nearly a dozen teams, all stocked with dedicated players. They have several top-notch arenas that don't lag badly. They have people like Jack Belvedere and Kayden Piers who work tirelessly to put forth a great product.

I've managed to gsther much of the sweet gear GOHA offers, mostly by flirting shamelessly with the league staff. Hey... I like jerseys, and try to get every one- home and away.

I love GOHA, and can't recommend it highly enough. If you want to play, they have constant training and rookie orientation. Everyone's friendly. You a girl? Girls play- and frequently star- in GOHA. Are you a Neko, or do you have a horse's tail? It's all good at GOHA.

If you like cheerleading, I'd recommend the Puckettes to you. It's easy to pick up, you get mentored by the veterans, and you end up with a bunch of cool outfits. I actually use the cheerleader HUD to dance in clubs, but I'm somewhat eccentric and feel dances should involve backflips.

Just want to watch hockey? Even better. There's plenty of room in the arenas, we have games nearly all the time, and the atmosphere is welcoming and hospitable. I even try to hand out coffee to the fans, as hockey arenas are cold if you aren't skating or dancing. I can guarantee that you will be appreciated.

Here's GOHA's website:

...and here's the Puckette's website:

... and here are the remaining games... you can get to the arena with the links from the website:

Tue Dec 7, 2010 6:00 - 7:00 PM Cobras @ Polar Bears Brooks Arena - Blueliner Sim
Tue Dec 7, 2010 7:15 - 8:15 PM Whales @ Wolves Jericho Hill Arena - Jericho Hill Sim

SL ARTS & LITERATURE: Get Wrapped Up In Stories at the 3D AIDS Quilt

Jenaia Morane believes in the power of stories. She believes in the power of stories to transform. Classic literature, new works, fiction of all sorts can do that, but that is not Morane’s passion. Her objective is the story of YOU – the story within you and how such stories can be used most importantly to heal. Morane herself would add that her projects are not about her. Morane’s gift, and her mission, is setting at liberty the stories of others and allowing them to soar in the open breeze where they can do the most good. Morane, along with partner Marty Snowpaw, are the creators of Story Quest – The Virtual World Story Project, and of Storybook Island. They have added a new chapter to the story of their work on the Second life Grid: The 3D Aids Quilt.

MEMORIAL TRIBUTE: Gone but Not Forgotten: A Tribute to Annabis Moody/Sharonna Spyker

Staff Reporter
• Tuesday, November 30, 2010
by Shon Charisma

It's so hard to say goodbye to someone who has touched your life and your heart; many on the SL grid and IRL are learning this now as their dear friend, Annabis Moody/Sharonna Spyker (Anne Cunningham IRL) lost her bout with cancer just before Thanksgiving. However, by remembering her exuberant spirit and encouragement, it is helping to lessen the pain of such a major loss.

smile, laugh, love, explore, express

These are the words that grace the profile of Annabis Moody, and they are words that embodied a woman who many thought to be sweet, good-hearted, and able to make others tap into their potential and aspire to accomplish their goals.

Sharonna was a Jacqueline of all trades--a host, model, an owner of club Dream Away, COO of ZHENYA ZONING Real Estate (ZEN), manager of Zensuality and land manager, independent music promoter for ZEN LIVE, cyberjournalist (working for SL Enquirer), and PSG Sandbox Admin, among other things.

FASHION Insight - Lacy Muircastle reporting ...

Miss China - Blossoms Sweetwater
Ms Virtual World 2011
Introducing Miss China - Blossoms Sweetwater

Blossoms arrived in SL on the 8/9/2008.

She started out her Second Life as an ordinary fashion loving girl and then the bug caught her and turned her into a model. Blossoms quipped “it is a SL dream. A Cinderella story.”

She absolutely loves to go shopping, followed by meeting people and chatting, oh and not forgetting hunts.
Blossoms’ pet peeves in SL are arrogance, cheats and those who just downright treat others unfairly.
She says she has been inspired by many people in SL such as Kay Fairey and Sora Tatham... both of whom are from Japan. She believes that they work as a bridge between Japanese speaking people and people from other countries and that they introduce Japanese designers to the world.

Ms Virtual World 2011
Well it is that time again – how time flies. 30 gorgeous ladies have been selected as the finalists for the 2011 MSW Pageant and over the next week or two I will introduce theses lovely ladies to you. The event is to take place on the 19th December 2010.

So without any further ado it is my privilege to introduce to you:

Miss Chile - Mel Endrezzi

Mel arrived in Second Life on the 21 March 2009. She has by no means rested on her laurels in her time here and is a professional runway, print, video and live model. Mel did her training as a runway model with Laver Model Academy under the guidance of Dagda Burner.

Mel is affiliated to many model agencies such as Dejavouge, Belle, Maritima, Arcobalenco, Rema Elite and King of Queens. She also currently manages Tropical Model Agency.

She loves meeting new people and finds it truly amazing that you can meet people from all around the world here and that distance is not an issue. She believes that Second Life gives everyone the opportunity to live out their dreams.

She has been inspired by many wonderful people in SL and finds the creativity portrayed in SL astounding. Mel has great admiration for people with positive energy and good ideas and who can translate those into SL. Mel is able to take this inspiration from SL and incorporate it into her RL design career.

Mel’s virtual life style is inspired by the colours of the season. She believes that fashion is not just about going to a store with good designs to spend money, she believes that fashion is a lifestyle.

Creativity is clearly important in beautiful Mel’s life as Tempura Japan is her favourite place in Second Life and when I asked her why she replied “Tempura Island is my favourite place in SL for their creativity in designing absolute reference to the nature, space and deep time peace.”

Mel is very excited to be one of the official candidates for this year’s pageant and she says that it is one of the most wonderful events in SL and the people who run it are so lovely.

Mel we wish you all the very best!

Virtually Faithful - Shon Charisma Reporting...

Me at church...
Staff Reporter
• Monday, November 22, 2010
In the year I've been in Second Life, I have immersed myself into various places to learn about what goes on in SL and what people do in SL. One thing, besides writing, that I do that connects with my real life is get virtualwith my faith.

SL ARTS & LITERATURE: “Alice’s Restaurant Massacree” an SL Holiday Tradition

Traditions are a funny thing, especially holiday traditions. You never know quite how a tradition starts, how it perpetuates itself, and who might share that same tradition with you. In November 2008, as the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday approached, Shandon Loring had a wild idea to present folksinger Arlo Guthrie’s Alice's Restaurant Massacree on Thanksgiving Day in Second Life. With no expectations of a large audience, Loring prepared Guthrie’s 20 minute song/monologue/political riff complete with a replica of the church described in the song, and sent out a few notices. Many fans of Arlo Guthrie consider Alice's Restaurant … a “must hear” part of the American turkey-full holiday. That first year the Library was over three-quarters full, inspiring annual encore presentations including this year’s presentation on Wednesday, November 24th at 7pm SLT at the Seanchai Library at Info Island International. Like all presentations at Seanchai, this one benefits charity: donations will be accepted for War Child North America.

SL ARTS & LITERATURE: The Opportunity in Written Word

Second Life in its entirety is one big opportunity. Agreed? It just all depends on what you are looking for. There are a lot of people creating opportunity in SL: people who put in time, care, passion to providing something for people to use. Lots of these places are empty. No one is ever there. Virtual dust bunnies run in thundering herds, and creators wonder why. The key to providing opportunity in SL is that it must be tied to activity. “If you build it, they will come” only works in baseball movies, and sometimes not even then.

Jilly Kidd provides opportunity. I still remember the first conversation I had with Jilly at the end of the Autumn Writer’s Exhibition 2009 where she said, “We have to find a way to work together on something.” Jilly sees opportunity, breathes it, and eats it for lunch.


Overview of Eagle's Rave

We are at Eagle's Rave, Italian land where there is still a perfect combination between commerce, entertainment, romance and socializing. Here you can find really everything, going from the many fashion shops, to the romance of a beautiful gondola ride along the canal that surrounds the land remembering the beautiful city of Venice, to the adrenaline given by a parachute launch, or simply to meet for a night out. The owner Robert67 Soulstar believed much in his project and with time has been able to create a truly multi-functional land with the help of trusted and talented employees. And today we have had the pleasure of meeting one of his right arm, the manager Mara Klaber, that in this short interview gave us the opportunity to know and appreciate the many shades of Eagle's Rave.
1) How did the idea to open the land has born?
Like so many apparently crazy ideas. Without a single well-defined, easily identifiable reason. A bit for fun, a bit maybe for a touch of boredom you feel when you go wandering around with nothing to do in SL. Or maybe, probably due to the unconscious desire to prove yourself, to show that you can give form to something that could not be found on SL and that could create an idea, very vague at the time, a classy commercial space that could combine "business with pleasure, business with leisure. In short, a place to find classy clothes and accessories, mainly of Italian fashion, but also where you can spend your free time having fun, dancing, playing and especially encountering serious people, with the same desire to spend nice hours in SL.

SPOTLIGHT FEATURE: The Allure of Allure: A Club Review….ReRe Sandalwood Reporting

Staff Reporter
• Monday, November 22, 2010
In an SL World where many behave as if they have a sense of entitlement, it is refreshing to come across a place that puts the needs of the customer first. At Allure, Zaurak ( all music requests are honored, bringing forth a family friendliness that is often not found in SL Clubs. Whether you are into Pop, Hip-Hop, Hard Rock, or Ska, Allure provides a plethora of music for all.

Practicing the epitome of customer service, Allure employs a wealth of DJs that believe in doing all they can for the customer. DJ Salem (also known as Salem Haiku) is one of many Allure DJs that fosters the creation of Allure’s positive family atmosphere. Handsome and rugged, Haiku encompasses the true essence [and definition] of a man—until you hear her voice and realize that behind the avi is a self assured woman. Though some may chuckle, or even cower in fear upon realizing that DJ Salem is a woman, it is this type of unconventional atmosphere that makes Allure an even more pulsating and lively place.

Bloodlines friendly, you may come across vampires either anxious to party, or desiring to spar with one another. In fact, as one walks around the club’s grounds, cemetery plots can easily be seen of fallen bloodlines. While this may intimidate the average Bloodlines player, it also adds to the mysterious atmosphere that inhabits Allure.

If you are not into the Bloodlines game, you may come across other mysterious creatures and beings. For instance, one could easily come across a witch who is anxious to better understand her power—all while inhabiting a world that easily misunderstands her.

Yet whatever category you fall under, Allure provides an insatiably unpredictable atmosphere that can easily appeal to everyone—even the common mortal.

Can buy, sell lindens and become an affiliate through Xchange4LS
Eclectic Charisma News -
I've been in Second Life for almost a year now, and whenever I need money, I just click on the little green money amount on the upper right hand corner of my screen, type in an amount, and hit OK.

VOILA! Money in my account. And with all the clothes and shoes (lots of shoes) I buy on a daily basis, it never dawned on me that maybe this way of buying Lindens didn't work for every SL resident. It also never dawned on me that I would ever want to sell my Lindens (it never seems like I have enough as is) or become an affiliate with a company so that I could make money from people looking to buy and sell Lindens.

And then I met Amanda01 Parx, responsible for marketing and customer service for Xchange4LS.

I felt like a total newbie as I talked to her about Xchange4LS and its benefits to SL residents, but Parx was willing to answer all my questions, and the answers she gave showed me just how important a provider like Xchange4LS can be to SL residents.

MUSIC: :Karter Stonecutter Rocks Second Life! - Sandy Demina Reporting...

Staff Reporter
• Tuesday, November 16, 2010
Karter joined the US Navy out of high school and spent most of his time in Florida, where he teamed up with some fellow sailors and started working gigs at the chief's club and special events. Out of the Navy, he went right into the piano bar circuit for a few years before realizing his heart was in Rock 'N Roll. Now he spends his time touring North America working large rock clubs and festivals, living a rather modest musician's life on a definitely modest musician's salary!

His diverse musical background provides for a unique performance. His piano bar days give him the experience to engage his audience and it's always evident in his performances. But don't let that fool you. Karter can rock with the best! He can adapt to most any styles and venues, which has given him longevity and popularity in the musician communities around the United States.

Whether it be indulging his audience in sweet romantic ballads, old standards or rockin' the house, a good time, a solid performance and some fun lasting memories are what you can expect when you come to see Karter Stonecutter. ( )

On November 14, 2010—from 2 pm to 4 pm—fun was had by all at Fux Club. All came out to celebrate the opening of the Jamaica *Land We Love* (236, 27, 23) SIM; the place was so packed that movement was limited and lag was constant! All lag and lack of movement aside, the stellar live performances of EyesNcharge Bluebird and Emo Mocha wowed the audience, and left the crowd swooning for more. As described by CaNDyLaDy Ghost, Jamaica *Land We Love* SIM owner, “EyesNcharge is so full of vibes…when she sings, she moves mountains!”
After EyesNcharge conveniently moved a few mountains with her voice prowess, Emo Mocha wooed the ladies with a hosts of soulful renditions. His performance of Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come”—along with a selection of other powerful covers—had ladies begging him to marry them.
Their performances, along with the versatile spinning style of DJ Detroit (aka Sir Brennen), proved that that there ain’t no party like a Fux Club Party!
Along with stellar live performances, friendship and friendly camaraderie were constant themes at the Fux Party. Everyone—from the local pit bull to the Afro’d out brotha—flocked the SIM in celebration of its opening.
The party not only celebrated the opening of a SIM dedicated to reenacting the Jamaica experience, it also reaffirmed a sense of nostalgia for the SIM owner. As described by CaNDyLaDy Ghost, “Jamaica is my heart, my home. Born and raised in Kingston, my motivation [to build this SIM] was natural. [When I] closed my eyes and thought of home, [I realized that Minka Pearl and I had to make the Jamaica *Land We Love* SIM] as realistic as possible.”
CaNDyLaDy continues: “[The Jamaica*Land We Love* SIM] was built on positive vibrations and [the] inevitable energy [that comes along with sharing] Jamaica with the SL community. For those who haven't gotten the chance to visit…come to JamRock and get a feel of what Jamaica would be.”

SL POLICE REPORT: Could it be possible that registered sex offenders could be roaming the grid unbeknownst to you? How would you feel if you were to find out that someone you know in SL is a registered sex offender just by doing a little research? Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

According to (Rape, Abuse and Incest National network), every 2 minutes, someone in the United States is being sexually assaulted. 1 in 6 woman and 1 in 33 men will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime. The sad thing is 60% of these rapes are never even reported to police and approximately 73% know their assailants. These are some very harsh statistics that leave people broken, feeling completely violated and sometimes even helpless, making it hard to heal both mentally and emotionally.

Should these predators that cause so much havoc and fear in their victims even be allowed to have the same freedoms as everybody else and be in SL too?  Can they be rehabilitated or is it a sickness that cannot be treated, leaving them to strike again and again and even prowl our grid.

Patriot Island and the US Military Veteran's Center- Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

A good time was had by all at Patriot Island!

    Every Veteran's Day, I am a sure bet to pop down to Patriot Island and the US Military Veteran's Center. You should do so as well....

My husband IRL is a veteran. He has been shot at on four continents. And while I'm a former urban high school teacher and have actually come closer to getting killed than he has, he still has had experiences that I, as a civilian, can't begin to hope to relate to.

Besides, I tend to get very immature when asking him about his experiences in the military. "What's it like to shoot someone? Could you see his facial expression? Have you ever broken someone's neck with your hands?" Yeah, that's about all the support he gets out of me. To be fair to me, he doesn't really seem to ask for/need much support... but a good wife still wants the best for him.

Over the last couple of weeks, I've shared with you some of the sights of NY Health Scapes, and this week, I conclude that journey with--yep, even more great things you can do there!
As I mentioned in previous articles [article #1 and article #2], NY Health Scapes is made up of 20 sims that feature not only wonderful SL versions of New York landscapes, but also great activities and sites for visitors and residents to enjoy.

There's no way I could ever tell you of every attraction unless I spent a good year or more traveling all the sims of NY Health Scapes, which is why I suggest you check out all the Travel Guides for yourself.

But just to entice you even more, I wanted to spotlight places you should check outnow.

One of the first places I stopped at is the Sea Crystal Carousel in WaterWay New York.

SL ARTS AND LITERATURE: Constellations of Writing at the London School of Journalism Space Station

Some columns just write themselves. I am almost embarrassed to admit it. I contacted the illustrious Jilly Kidd (RL Author Adele Ward), who runs the Written Word Group for writers in SL. It was just with a soft inquiry about covering Written Word and featuring something upcoming. What I got was the fodder for about three or four columns. The scope of what Written Word does is immense! I knew they had a broad scope, but I had no idea how broad. So I chose to start with one aspect of the amazing spectrum of things Jilly opened up for me: The Space Station at the London School of Journalism.

Big hearted musicians in Second Life have turned into Santa’s little helpers, helping to raise funds for scores of underprivileged children this Christmas.

Christmas comes but once a year and this yuletide, the generous music community of Second Life are hoping their incredible talents and combined hard work will help put a smile on the faces of thousands of children in dire real life situations. A dazzling new Christmas themed CD featuring the work of over sixty SL based musicians is due to be launched on November 1st with 100% of the proceeds being donated to the venerable ‘Toys for Tots Foundation’ which was conceived back in 1947 by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. Over the past 63 years, it has managed to raise funds to purchase a staggering 81.3 million toys valued at more than $487 million and given joy to countless generations of children from impoverished families or those living in care. This is actually the second year that this CD has been produced in world, but the organisers are optimistic that this year, they can break last year’s record of 1062 CD's sold and 1.6 million Lindens raised for this worthwhile cause.

The new Pulse TV Network is already making its presence felt and they just busted open the doors with something different. The launch of Girl Talk turned out to be a great first live taping because they have that chemistry that works. For those that missed the debut with hostesses Nani Xue and Demoneka Daehlie, you missed a great show that has me looking forward to the next one.
A professional team like that can only be expected when they are in the forefront of evolving today’s SL Talk shows. Behind the scenes the productions team consisting of Filming Techs Paddington Baar and Starlite Schnook, Production Assistant MamiChula Vella, Sound Engineer Tedd Bearsfoot and Segment Producer Prissy Price, took their assigned positions and delivered. The topic was great and the production was well organized and put together from start to finish. 
I was told hostesses’ Nani and Demoneka designed and decorated the set. I found it to be very welcoming with a theme of bold pinks and deep purple on the stage wall with some lighter neutral tones and accents that worked well with the audience seating area. The backdrop of the set had a comfortable seating area display with nice fluffy pillows, blankets and throw rugs over light wood floors. The feel in the room was definitely created by a Woman, in this case two very independent and professional women.
Besides the perfect set, Girl Talk was honored to debut with their official first guest, Comedian, author, poet and entrepreneur Hiliary Grant, also known as DearGabby Lemon.
