Staff Reporter
• Thursday, May 13, 2010
On Saturday May 8, 2010. I was invited to attend “Alice in WonderSland”, a production put together in SL by the Avatar Repertory Theater.
It's definitely a MUST SEE from start to finish for those into the performing arts. Everything from receiving my ticket, falling down a rabbit hole and feeling like I was seated at the Mad Hatter's Tea Party, til it was all said and done. I was at the edge of my seat. It was well put together perfectly and the cast delivered a fantastic performance that captured my imagination. Despite having a griefer show up, That only meant, this crew is doing something right. 

After Receiving my ticket and NC of instructions, I teleported to the entrance where I was greeted by Art Usher JadaBright Pond. I handed him my ticket and was lead to a giant wooden door.
Intrigued I teleporting to a dark shadowy domed room . A spotlight was shining against a worn black and white checkered floor with seating for the audience built right into the scene.

The first scene started in the woods where Alice begins her wondrous adventure. She spots a white rabbit and curiously follows him into his hole where she falls for what feels like an eternity, landing at the bottom looking at many doors. One being very small...

SPOTLIGHT FEATURE: Golden Hearts Jazz Ballroom Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

The basic recreation of the view that Mr. Cardalines had before Stacey completed her conquest of him...
A lot of people come up to me and say, "Stacey... you sure do a lot of sports... often ones that involve physical violence or ridiculously powerful machinery... do you have any sort of delicate, feminine side at all?"

Yes, I do.

One of my favorite places on this virtual earth we share is the Golden Hearts Jazz Ballroom. Run by our good friend Christabelle Vyper, GHJB is a sim dedicated entirely and 100% to Romance.

SPOTLIGHT FEATURE- Extreme Paintball- Lacy Muircastle Reporting...

In Second Life as in real life anything is possible and if you can think it, then you can do it and so we introduce to you Extreme Paintball!!
Paintball is an exciting game of Tag and Hide and Seek all rolled into one. There are many variations of the game, where two teams attempt to cross terrain, capture their opponents flag, and return it to the flag station without being marked by a paint pellet. Each player is armed with a C02 marker that shoots soft gelatine balls the size of a bath bead. These are filled with a washable paint that splatters upon impact. Games vary in time, but most players will get in several games in a session.

Extreme Paintball a division on of Ultimate Experiences, is a professionally run SL paintballing venue. Whether it's a corporate event, stag party, birthdays, rezz days or just a day out with friends, you can be sure your day will be a memorable action packed experience. 

Extreme Paintball has exciting and varied game zones where you will be tasked with different objectives and missions. These tasks, should you choose to accept them, must be completed within the game time and without you being marked and eliminated by your opponents!
You can get all your game requirements at the venue, including a full line of paintball guns, markers, goggles and paintballs.

Known as a pioneer of virtual music, Cylindrian’s performances carry the listener on a journey guided by lyric and melody. Though, she likes to perform various cover songs that have inspired and moved her, she prefers to perform her own original material.
The woman behind the avatar, Grace Buford began her musical adventure at the tender age of 4 years old while listening to her older brother practice piano. That was the spark that ignited her desire to make music. Passion, perseverance, and determination have always been present in her music from that early age. Her desire to hone her craft continues even today as she attempts to impart some of that same ethic on her music students.  


Lanai's Diary: 5 YEARS LATER. Lanai Jarrico Reporting...

Staff Reporter

I literally woke up one day back in October of 2004 and decided I needed to be a virtual world journalist because I wanted to write about what was going on. Also to throw a little salt on the issues that lingered in that primitive virtual culture..

Moving the paper to Second Life from The SIMS Online in 2005 during the great TSO migration, I just continuing what I was doing and ended up on the throne this past week celebrating a milestone while waving like a drama queen in a popularity contest. But I'm not complaining...

5 Years later, not much has changed with my delusions of grandeur except for tons more readers to the newspaper, loads of inquiries and a host of creative friends who share this same shameless virtual world addiction.

On Mother's Day, (May 9th) my avie turned 5 and I didn't even log into SL. I pretty much let it slip by like all the other years. Except, this year it happened to be a real holiday and I happened to be dining out of town and celebrating with my RL family. After logging in the next day I got to talking to Sir Brennen and mentioned never having a Rezzday party....

SPOTLIGHT FEATURE: Steve Beck- The Model Maker- Persia Bravin Reporting...

Monday, May 17, 2010-
Ask any woman in Second Life what her most treasured possession held in inventory is and chances are it won’t be the extensive collection of shoes, love letters from ardent suitors or even special photographs, but something far more basic, yet central to a woman’s identity-her shape.

In our virtual world, the shape you choose to wear gives reveals vital clues about our real life tastes far more than any other accessory. It is ultimately what defines how others see us, reflecting how we want to appear in our pixilated world. There are thousands of shape designers in Second Life and as a keen social observer (ok-nosy journalist) I can now enter a room and after a quick scan, match shapes to designers in seconds. While the majority of shape makers stick to producing wave upon wave of standardized variants on your typical ‘model’ silhouette, one man has very cleverly, used real life scientific research into what constitutes classical ‘beauty’ and transferred it into SL to produce a breathtakingly beautiful selection of shapes.

SPOTLIGHT FEATURE- A Mother on a Mission. Project Jason & Garden for the Missing ~Lanai Jarrico Reporting...

Staff Reporter
• Monday, May 10, 2010
Virtual worlds can be viewed as a time consuming “game” to many who have never experienced what an international community can achieve while working together. But according to 51% of our readers. Second Life is an extension of their real life.

There are still those people in our real world who are ignorant to this new social networking generation and are quick to pass judgment before realizing Second life is much more than a video game or waste of time.

As a virtual journalist, I view this platform as an ingenious media tool. With access to countless resources and networking communities all over the world.

The ability to help pass along news has always been my way of bringing awareness to many fundraisers, organizations and resources that help people or, at least try to influence others to be a part of some of the great and well known Humanitarian efforts in the world.

From The Red Cross, The American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life', West of Ireland's “War Child”, Toys for Tots to Project Jason.

According to reports by organizations across the country, there are over 2,300 people reported missing daily and over 900,000 cases a year. The majority being adults with close to half of those being juveniles under the age of eighteen. These numbers have rapidly increased from 25 years ago when numbers averaged roughly 150,000 annually.

These numbers are staggering and leave many families and loved ones to wonder, Where can these missing people be?

Feeling helpless, many stop there, but for the loved ones it is a daily struggle with unanswered questions, hopes of recovering their family member, and beginning to heal.

These heartbreaking stories play on for many around the world. These people need our help and support. 

How can We Help? Let's begin with one mother who has been on her mission since June 13, 2001.
