Venue Review: Rockers Nightclub rocks its Roadies!! Shay Dalek Reporting...

 
 
August 20th was certainly a night to remember, that was the night Rockers Nightclub closed its doors on its former sim to reopen at a brand new location. Let me say, if you have ever been to the old Rockers, the new location is absolutely incredible. Roadies had been teased for weeks about the upcoming move and the build was kept strictly out of prying eyes. The anticipation was enough to make a grown man squeal and when the evening finally came around, Roadies descended upon its new club in droves.

SL ARTS & LITERATURE: BOOFest Schedule Announced

Presentations and presenters for October's BOOFest of ghost stories told around the spooky autumnal fires at Bran have been announced in a preliminary schedule. A baker's dozen or presenters with even more spooky and scary stories to share with Second Life residents in this free community event.

SPOTLIGHT FEATURE-Move over Bunnies and Horses, a new technology is in town. From the creators of Shark Club Gaming comes a new concept in virtual world technology; Buildables. Lanai Jarrico Reporting…





Lanai: Batrastard, thank you for taking the time out to show me this very interesting project you have been working on. With beta in its final phase, it is time to let the robot out of the bag and introduce SLE readers to "Buildables". You have teleported me to the secret location on a couple of occasions and I got to browse the collection.  I must say, this new concept is very impressive. I can’t wait to see them hit the market and in the hands of many avatars across the grid.  When will they be available to avatars?



 Batrastard: Thank you so much for the compliment!  And on behalf of the whole "Sharkclub" team, it is much appreciated!   Beta is planned to end on Sat. Sept. 24th.  Then we will take a couple days to get some last minute things in order, set up vendors, and such, than open the sim to the public on Wed. Sept. 28th!  We might take an extra day, so don't hold it against me if we have to open on the 29th!

BOSL Fashion Week

Dear Fashionistas and Amigos:

The BOSL Fashion Week is well underway so grab your totes; gird up your corsets and dress to impress! The Style Armageddon is upon us! The final runway rapture is looming!

The cacophony of conflicting trends, incomprehensible chic offerings, and maniacal “must haves” is bigger and louder than ever! This year we break the mould as you witness the most titillating, tumultuous, fabulously haute couture, gloriously glam-obsessed, deliciously deranged, and relentlessly entertaining week of fashion to hit the grid! You are about to embark on a fashion journey that will inspire and rejuvenate, and nobody is immune!

Cutting-edge, trend-making, dazzling sets that will overwhelm the senses, built by top-of-the-line SL architects and award winning artists; the grid’s top models show us their fashion-savvy styling talents and choreography – and both SL and RL fashion designers present their latest fashion designs that run the gamut from sophisticated elegance, to dark decadence, to no-boundary avant-garde, to abstract couture, to “comic book couture,” to a walk-back-in-time tribute to SL’s fashion industry. And our first look at the Official Candidates for the 2012 MISS VIRTUAL WORLD Pageant. It’s all here to be experienced and savoured for one week only!

SL ARTS & LITERATURE: BOOFest - A Weekend of Ghost Stories

A partnership which began with a single story-based weekend last March has blossomed into three popular events, the most recent of which will come to Second Life the first weekend in October. BOOFest – a celebration of stories best told around the blazing autumnal fire will feature a gathering of virtual story presenters and their spooky and scary best Saturday, October 1 from Noon to 4pm, and Sunday, October 2 from 10am to 2pm, and 3pm to 5pm – all times SLT.

Take Five with Jewelry Designer Earth Nirvana

I love clothes. There, I've confessed it. When I'm on the grid, if I'm not working, I am at some store (or on Marketplace) looking through outfits to buy. Clothes and shoes. All the time. But there is another important component to a Fashionista's diet besides clothes and shoes: accessories! The right pair of earrings or set of bracelets or sparkling necklace can set off an outfit. I will admit that in the past, I wasn't as focused on my accessories as I needed to be, but over the summer, I began to appreciate what a little bling on a ring could do for my wardrobe, so I set out to find me great pieces that could be worn with my traditional tee-jeans-sneakers 'fits or my steampunk puppet 'fits or my...well, you get the picture.

I met Earth Nirvana through Facebook. We became FB buddies there and occasionally made comments about each other's postings, and then I realized that she actually was an artist who designed jewelry in-world. Of course, me acting like I had all the money in the world, quickly went to her store on Marketplace and began buying up. Not only does Earth offer great pieces (I so <3 her earrings and bracelets), but she offers these wares at awesome prices. With SL's ELEMENTS Jewelry Fair 2011 kicking off this past weekend, I thought I would talk to Earth about her wares, her inspirations, and her goals for the next year.




Earth Nirvana, born in-world December 26, 2008, is a mother of two and the sole visionary and creator behind Earth’s Bangles & Other Creations, a business that prides itself with supplying SL residents with quality items at low cost. Earth’s Bangles complements all looks from the glamorous to the casual with a $50L or less price tag. Using various shapes, colors, textures and styles, drawing inspiration from everything around her, Earth manages present an array of fashion and costume adornments.

9/11 was observed across the Second Life Grid




September 11th marked the day, the world stood still and we all witnessed a horrific act upon many, who lost their lives that day.  It affected each one of us in some way and It evoked not only fear, sadness and anger, to sent shockwaves around the globe.

This event has also brought about a great courage that was witnesses by all on that day, as firefighters raced up the towers in a selfish act of helping others and losing their lives along with many husbands, wives, daughters, sons, mothers and fathers. Most of us can remember exactly where we were or what we were doing at the moment they got the news.

The Great Debate about Operation Repo- Is it a staged show or are people really this emotional about getting their car snatched for not making payments?



Today while having a conversation with a  friend about one of my favorite shows, Operation Repo. He told me that it was a staged program. I had a hard time believing it until I saw this video clip, nearly collapsed with laughter, but still a bit confused about it being a skit. Why would Matt take one for the team and why would this young Michael Jackson Impersonator embarass himself like that for 4:41 minutes of fame. If he  has mental issues like Froy says, what is he doing being able to drive???

 Please sit back, with popcorn if you have some, because this is seriously some funny stuff, staged or not. Feel free to leave your opinion in the comment box below!

Have a great weekend!

On Tuesday September 6th, Avatars from across the grid filled my bedroom or two hours of great music, fun and games and no one lost an eye.
From truth or dare, spotlight drawings and exploring the unique over sized bedroom venue, to spin the bottle and random linden payouts, there were plenty of ways to evoke that party animal, and this was one party worth talking about.

Interview

Lanai Jarrico: Hi Linda! It’s always great to chat it up with you. You always have something going on and also some very cool events coming up in September and November. Let’s start by letting our readers know what you do and how you found Second Life?



Linda Lauren: I am a 4th generation Psychic Medium, Energy Artist, Pet Psychic and Reiki Practitioner both in real life and in Second Life.  I discovered SL around 2006 through a few podcasts I was following at the time.  I wasn’t on very long before I decided to become a paid resident and was soon asked to do readings for a Halloween event.  We had a lot of crashing back then and I needed an assistant to help with crowd control and appointments.  I asked my RL and SL Business Manager, (Sumi Portola in-world) to join so she could help!
