Spotlight Feature On Renowned Machinima Artist, RYSAN FALL Pandora Drezelan Reporting...

Rysan Fall

Rysan Fall is an amazing, charismatic machinima artist in Second
Life™. He has been a part of this virtual world for over four years.
This is an insight to his journey.

Regarding his very unique Second Life name and his inspiration to come
to Second Life:

‘At first, I was trying to be clever with the preset list of legacy
names that were being offered at the time. I saw the last name “Fall”
and I figured it would be easy to come up with something clever. But,
I also wanted my name to mean something. I came up with the name
“Rysan” and it seemed to fit well with the last name, kind of like a
play on the phrase “Rise and Fall”. In a way it explains the futility
of man. No matter what you accomplish, achieve or gain in life, you
still could lose it all. And that reminds me to be humble, and
grateful for any goodness in my life’.

‘I joined Second Life in December of 2007, after I heard of an
unfortunate news story on CNN™. The story exposed how some people were
using a Second Life sim for illicit activities and had to be shut

MUSIC SPOTLIGHT FEATURE: Music Grove Academy Starts Classes on February 12th. Allen Eppenberger

Music Grove Academy of Performance is a lovely campus, designed by Indi Vella. The grounds are well thought out, with a number of focal points to hold your attention without being overwhelming. The most eye catching feature is the school building itself. The front facade is stylishly curved. But as you continue, you're aware of a distinctive piano shape, that the Dean, Adevina Citron-Gearz, is quite proud of. She has been involved with music in physical reality since she was young, and as a performer in Second Life since March of 2010.

When Second Life impacts real life ....

Second Life is regularly touted as a place to be what you want to be or do what you are unable to do in your real life. And when one comes across an avatar with just such a story, of someone using SL to achieve RL dreams and overcoming RL’s cruel hand, it has to be told!!

I am incredibly honoured to introduce to you Johnathan Hiess. Many of you will already know of him in SL as he is a well-known DJ who performs at a number of SL’s most popular dance venues, and who can sing too!!

A more self-effacing person I have not encountered in SL. He is a man whose driving force hasbeen to make a difference in the real world, especially for his children and his daughters particularly. But in so doing his original ambitions of being a DJ in real life took the back seat. He was 16 years old and playing at KMEL Radio Stati

on in San Francisco, but his Mom and Dad convinced him that he should go to school. He went on to finish college majoring in criminal justice from Sonoma State. The market was heavy with applicants at the time so he joined the Marines.

Johnathan decided joining the Marines would give him the opportunity to make a difference to the world in which we live. In his time as a Marine he pulled an Army Soldier from a burning Humvee undoubtedly saving his life and before that it was four kids from a burning car, but he himself took a bomb blast in 2004 by an IED, which curtailed his career in the Marines.

Music is what pulled him through his darkest days following the bo

mb blast that took his legs. All that was available at the time was a compilation CD of Celine Dion’s. You can imagine that she has a special place in his heart now and as it turns out Celine has a soft spot for Marines herself, so she was somewhat of a guardian angel for him and now the core of the music he plays in SL is none other than, you guessed it, Celine Dion. Her music has been a healer for him, helping him deal with the anger, pain and nightmares. He has had to learn to walk again and wear prosthetics.

Johnathan says “when I take the stage now, whether it be here in SL or RL, when I see people moved by what I play and do, I forget what’s wrong with me, and for those moments I also belong. I see people smile. I see people cry, this is when I don’t feel so alone.”

The CIGNA Corp offered him a position and it was CIGNA th

at brought him to Second Life. When he learned he could DJ in here he was going to do it as a hobby but not before long his name as a DJ in here exceeded SL. Johnathan says “I got my dream in a way, that dream of me playing for thousands of people. A lady inside of Franks Jazz loved my voice. Her name was Tamara McDaniel in RL. She is a casting director for Paramount. When she told me who she was I said OK Lady SUUUUUUURE…..” She was not only the real thing she casted him as a DJ in a low budget movie named Suspicion where he played a DJ that gets shot!

He was then asked to do music between live bands for real life concer

ts. He recalls “Then I thought I had touched the sun when at Cricket Wireless Pavilion I was doing the music for Cheap Trick, Poison and Def Leppard. As you know they are setting up for the next act you play music as the crowd is going back and forth to get beer food and the restroom break. I was given a time hack because it was about time for Poison to take the stage. So my last song was AC DC ‘Highway to hell.’ Well as I played it, I was only allowed 1 minute 38 seconds before they took over, but the crowd got so into the song. The sound engineer was about to cut my stream when Bret Michaels and CC came out on stage and

began to sing along to the song. I was in awe. The crowd were screaming and were so into the song that I was allowed to continue. Once the song was over, Bret Michaels asked me to stand and he announced my name to the crowd and that I was an Injured US Marine and I was the one that played the AC DC song. I went home that night with a new sense of myself. I thought it could not get any better, but I was wrong. In January just a year ago I got a call from Live Nation to open for Slash and Myles Kennedy as they were opening for Ozzy Osbourne. This was at the Comerica Theater and I happened to run into Ozzy. The man t

ook me aside and we talked and he gave me the best ass chewing of my life. Here was a mega star sitting with me and I was asking myself if I was good enough to even be there and he said don’t you ever fucking question yourself. You are here for a reason. And he went on and on about how wrong I was. In the end he revealed some hard times he is going through, and then he said God bless you and he gave me his cloak! It’s amazing how he spent several minutes giving me an ass chewing and to turn around to say God Bless You and give me his cloak. He’s a good man, a really big man of character, totally opposite of what he sells himself as. All in all, I am grateful.”

His son DJ Sena Hirsch, is now following in his DJ’ing footsteps.

In posting this article it is my wish that others will see that Second Life can and does make a huge difference to people’s lives and that it can have a positive effect on their real lives too.

Elvera Lerner is a singer who takes with her voice, the hearts of hundreds of SL and RL listeners

       Recently, Elvera performed across 52 Second Life© venues. The venues were full of activity while she graced the stage and now with the Challenge of Elvera’s now over, I can introduce you to her. 
Elvera Lerner is not a stranger to the stage, having been singing and performing live since she was a small child. She is a natural soprano, but has a great range and voice which enables her to sing a mixture of songs that suit different venues and events across the grid.

She is currently touring as Christine in The Phantom of the Opera and in her one-woman show "The Julie Andrews Experience" and in the New Year opens as Sandy in Grease for its 40th anniversary. She has rightly been called "the voice of SL" and lives up to the name in every way possible

Ringing in 2012. Is Peace a Possibility? The War is Over and a New Year Begins. How will you contribute? -Lanai Jarrico

No matter where we are in the world there are things we all must face. Challenges and Opportunities surround us all the time. Many speak of world peace, other just need peace of their own.

Whichever you want more is up to each person and it begins with each day. It is a chance to do some good, improve on your health and meet goals you set for yourself. Time is often a problem. It cannot be bought without sacrificing or procrastinating on the other important things in life. Prioritizing is the first step.

Whether we are part of the real or virtual world, we all have the ability to make changes that will contribute to the type of peace we all desire.
