Protect yourself in Second Life with ☢ EXCLUSIVE WEAPONS ☢ Owned and Operated by Roby Tandino –Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

 Second Life is full of adventures and all sorts of things to do, but sometimes you need to sift through your inventory of gadgets and bust out some weaponry to handle your business and protect yourself from griefers, zombies or those e-gangsters and their goons on the combat role play sims.

It’s a vicious job with lots of bloodshed but someone needs to rack up on the body count and keep things in check. What happens if you don’t have weapons to protect yourself? You better run and teleport to Exclusive Weapons!

Let us point you in the right direction where you will find weapons, shields, magic spell casters and protection tools to help you feel safe and secure in areas you are not familiar with. There are even monitoring tools to protect your business too.

Recently I met Roby Tandino, the proprietor of Exclusive Weapons. This store is  one of the longest running Weapons distributors in Second Life boasting 6 years of providing protection to the community. Their best clients are informed clients and The SL Enquirer is here to help spread the word.

Ascension: A multimedia LEA sim by Mantis Oh- Persia Bravin Reporting...

Set in an ancient/futuristic landscape with surreal plants and hybrid insects, Ascension takes the visitor on a trip of sound, color and light.
Explore the seven levels of the Ascension tower and lose yourself in a mysterious world where musical notes appear from under your feet, where robotic bumblebees hover close by and where particles shimmer in the alien atmosphere.



Hi SLE readers,

    I thought I’d write you a note while I enjoy a refreshing glass of water with lemon and an energizing bowl of fruit and vanilla yogurt. It has been a while since I’ve expressed my gratitude to you, the reader, my friends, hard working team of writers and all those that have supported The SL Enquirer through the years. It has definitely been a journey, one I have shared with you in the public eye. I just want you to know I am grateful for each and every one of you for being there to motivate me to continue to do what I love; creative writing, meeting people from all over the world, learning from you all and being a part of some of your daily reading routines. 
  As I approach my 8th Rezzday on May 9th, I can’t help but sit back and reflect on the years gone by. It seemed like only yesterday that I was waddling barefoot around the grid with no real direction, wearing silks and constantly being approached by Goreans. I had no idea that what I was wearing meant something to them.  Things have certainly changed from those times, readership has grown tremendously from the monthly hits that are now equivalent to our daily hits, times two. 
   Every day when I wake up, gather my senses and check my emails, it is like opening Christmas presents. There is something new to tackle each day, a new person to meet, the most encouraging comments and my friends and SLE family in Second Life ready to greet me. Living a Rock star lifestyle isn’t so bad, but without you as my rock, I would not be a star. I just wanted to express that to all of you. I wish you all well with whatever dreams you have and encourage you to follow them. You never know that the path you choose today will lead you in a whole new life changing direction tomorrow. I certainly believe in dreams coming true. If you continue to strive for what you want and do what you love, only good things can come of it, even in the virtual world.
Stay positive, have a great day and another will soon follow.

-Lanai Jarrico

Mr Hunter – Tea Couturier Reporting…

Hunts in Second Life has become more and more popular not only for the store owners but also for the shoppers. It is a way of purchasing goods in SL for a fraction of the price or even for 0L. 
However, hunters do not participate in hunts for this alone, They participate for the thrill of the hunt by figuring out the clues and then locating their prizes. You will find numerous of hunts within SL for women but there are not as many for men.

   "Mr Hunter" is a well known hunt launched over a year ago. It is dedicates its self to men’s only fashion and for men who are interested in fashion. It is for those men who also want to participate in the same fun the ladies of sl were experiencing.

Interview with Mr Hunter’s founder, Lasher Spiritor

For Aeva Heartsick - A fundraiser to help a much loved creator - Nehem Resident Reporting…

Everyone loves a great creation in second Life. Often times we landmark our favorites so we can visit them over and over. What if your favorite creator needed help? 

For many, Second Life is a way to communicate, a way to make money, a way to live. What you may not know, however, is that Second Life sometimes plays a very important role in real life as well.  Amesha Jewell, the creator of Aeva/Heartsick, is one of those people. Due to various physical and mental conditions, she is unable to work in real life, so she turned to Second Life to do something she loves. Her Skins, shapes and other items are adored by many.

Change is Good – Even in Second Life- Linda Lauren Reporting...

Change something in your environment and watch how much that single change will uplift your personal vibration, boost your energy and improve your mood.  We don’t realize how much that overflowing Inventory that holds our possessions can block our ability to enjoy a Second Life existence without frustration, lag and system crashes.  Possessing an excessive inventory is the contributing reason to all of the above complaints.  

Torley Linden has a really cute video called “Confessions of a Second Life Hoarder” and though it’s exceptionally funny, there is truth to it!  A clean inventory will make for a happier Second Life experience.  To see the video and read the step-by-step tutorial click here:

All those freebees we get as we teleport across the grid can add a substantial amount of prim and/or scripts. Regular clean up is the answer.  As an SL paying resident since 2006, here are some of the tips I’ve picked up along the way:

Let's start with Inventory Items

My Time with the Psychic Medium Linda Lauren- Definate Balfour Reporting…

 I had the pleasure of meeting a celebrity that happens to play within Second Life, Linda Lauren. 

For those that don’t know who she is, she’s a psychic medium that has numerous accomplishments including art, writing, energy consultant, and has been trademarked as the Travel Psychic for her talent in travel readings. She has a sim and has devoted it to her real life lifestyle and selling products to help those needing them!

Linda Lauren is one of the most interesting people you can find right here at The SL Enquirer, having her own column where she writes and you can read her words of wisdom, but when I found out she was more than another writer I had to meet her for myself.

Spotlight on Ted McKenna, Owner of Carnel Oasis- Mackenzie Abbot Reporting…

On first impression, you would see a quiet, unassuming resident dancing his heart out in a local nightspot.  But Ted McKenna has, after 6 years of playing, been there, done that and bought the shirt.

We meet in his club, Carnal Oasis, after a well-attended 2 hour DJ event on one of Dream Walker Isle's beaches.  He offers me a drink and we start talking about his early days in a club on Kokomo.  The story starts with him being brought in as a Security Manager but losing the job not long after when the entire sim disappeared. 
So what happened and why did everything disappear?
It was a private sim. In those days, copy-bots hit Second Life real hard and the sim owner did not want to be responsible for any vendors losing any of their items, so he shut the sim down to any vendors and shortly after that he closed the sim.  A number of merchant sims had major issues during that time until safeguards were put in place to control the copy-bots and still, to this day, they are a factor.

Interview with Ted McKenna

As we leap into April, many of us still feel ourselves shaking off the winter chill. We often trapped inside, and long for the warmth of spring. The wait is over! 

What is more lovely in the spring than a walk in the park? Aero Pines Park offers just that, and more. It is a massive 6 year old sim with a wide range of activities including: horseback riding, canoeing, balloon rides, and horse drawn carriage rides.

Spotlight From Behind the Scenes at Paramount Playhouse- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

SLE often shines a spotlight on venues, performances and activities that take place across the grid. Most of the time you see interviews with business owners or self promoters, this time we are taking you behind the scenes to meet the staff that help make it all happen.
Paramount Playhouse first opened its doors in December of 2012. Today it is known as home to classy burlesque, comedy and other fine entertainment in an elegant yet casual atmosphere. The performances you may have seen or heard about most recently are Cleo and the Czar for the month of April, as well as past performances featuring Christmas Tails, New Year’s Spectacular, Mardi Gras, special performances by Glenn Bunjie and Elvis BubbaC Johns, Fab Four and The Beatles Tributes, Dancers’ Showcase, and Sexy Coast to Coast. Paramount Playhouse sure has been busy between rehearsals and show times to deliver quality entertainment that is very similar to going to the Big Apple and taking in a Broadway show. The difference is, admission is free and the interaction between a global community of guests and staff is paramount.

The modest Pathmaker Campbell-MacGregor is the owner but he wanted us to shift the spotlight and attention on those that help him provide Second Life residents with Paramount Playhouse shows.

Pathmaker told The SL Enquirer, “The creation of the paramount was making dreams come true - and those were the dreams of my partners LeAnn and Lotta - to have a place to perform and to be able to exercise our own creativity.  Pat and Bo Sharpshire, the owners of the Sprit Marina Sim made that dream possible; they are dear friends and the physical building of the Paramount was Pat's gift to us. But a working theater is much more than three owners and a building, no matter how dedicated the owners nor how large their dreams.  Our Cast members are what make it possibly for the Paramount to function and it's very important to me that they receive the credit and recognition they deserve”.

With that said, let’s meet the staff J

Happy 3rd Rezzday to BOSL Radio!

It’s Four-Twenty! What’s the Meaning Behind This Term? – Lanai Jarrico reporting…

Let me enlighten you with a little bit of  random history on this term. The Cannabis subculture refers to this time and date as a code number referring to the consumption of Marijuana. It’s earliest reference began by a group of California teenagers that called themselves the Waldos, in the early 1970’s.  These teenagers would meet up outside of the San Rafael High School, near a statue of Louis Pastuer where they made plans to search for an abandoned cannabis crop they had heard about. They never found the crops but the 420 term stuck and continues today for pot smokers as a countercultural holiday in North America.  Many have observed this day throughout the years by meeting up in public places like San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park, the University of Colorado’s campus and even crossed over into Canada where it has been observed at Vancouver Art Gallery and Parliament Hill. Events have also taken place in New Zealand at the University of Otago. It is an ongoing debate for states where Marijuana is illegal. In recent years legalization of Marijuana across the U.S has been a hot topic. Some are fighting for their right to smoke, while others see bigger reasons to legalize.

So why have people continued to celebrate marijuana if it is illegal in most states?

Tom2point0 .... giving soul to the metaverse one note at a time - Lacy Muircastle reporting ...

In my wanderings around Second Life I happened upon a performance by one Tom2point0.  I really enjoyed his performance, in fact so much so that I even went to his link to listen to more of his music.  I found a song about drama which was rather apt since I had just written a piece on what SL would be without drama, and it rather appealed.  Take a listen, it is actually really amusing and boy will you hear things that ring true for your second life and probably your real life too.

VMS News: The Rockit Club: If the House is A Rockin'- Pen Dragon Reporting...

What do you do if you have years of experience performing live in SL? Plus a ton of friends who are top notch live performers, as well as too much club equipment just sitting in your inventory? Well, if you are Tricky Digfoot, you follow a dream and open a small, laid back and fun live venue!
The Rockit is that venue. After performing live and being involved in a large sim aimed at the SL music scene, he decided to step out of his comfort zone and open his own venue at which he and his friends would perform and he could book other great live shows.
"I've performed in SL for a  few years now with a group.  We owned a sim at one point but they kinda went to big for me. It was bit much with my busy RL. So anyway, I had a lot of club equipment in my inventory that was just collecting dust so to speak. So I decided to open a club on a smaller parcel and keep it simple and a little less stressful."
