The Drax Files: World Makers [Episode 26: Absinthe]















https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MleYk8-F1CQ

“Second Life is so multifaceted that you can’t really make a judgement as to whether somebody’s activity is more serious than somebody else's!” says Absinthe, a virtual super model: “I get up in arms when people put down Second Life as escapism!” 

Yes Absinthe, who works with HIV/AIDS children in her day job, fully embraces her SLelebrity status despite the raised eyebrows of friends and colleagues when she mentions what she terms "my hobby". 

Indeed there is no shortage of articles which dismiss in particular the fashion industry in this largest user-created virtual world as lonely adults playing Barbie & Ken after-hours.

But there is so much more underneath this playful engagement with avatar dolls: exploration of identity, ethnicity, class and embracing the creative impulse in all of us, those are just a few themes that run alongside Absinthe’s story.

Not to mention that her FEROSH project has brought her recognition beyond the virtual realm as this fashion compendium is available in physical print, rivaling RL publications in its beautiful presentation and style. 

But let us for now simply embrace the wonderful distraction of some talented women in gorgeous dresses, accessories and hair.

All in The SL Family: A Close Look At Second Life Families- Rere Sandalwood Reporting…


One might think they are seeing double upon looking at DOUBLE TROUBLE Elliott Lafeyette and Rockford Ewing on the Stinger Night Club Dance floor.
But blink again, and upon a closer look, you will realize that what you see is not a hallucination…because what you are really seeing are identical SL Twins!


According to Daph Wallace, a hostess that not only works at Stingers, but at an array of clubs and venue, this trio is actually part of a set of triplets. “They are [not only] triplets, they have a brother too,” she continues as she kindly greets Stinger patrons, “…and they are fine as hell...”

Yet physical looks aside, seeing this part of a family trio can potentially make an SL patron ponder on the importance of family, especially in SL.  In fact, if one digs deep enough, one can find more than triplets and siblings in SL.  After all, there are families in SL that not only consist of husbands and wives, but can include prim babies, SL children, aunts, uncles and even college age children.  Further, these family member may not only function as family in SL, but may extend on into real life as well.


Blood Related

For instance, MrsStormLove, manager of Seduction Estates, has successfully joined forces with her brother, Seduction Estate owner Mr. Jazzy Melody in the creation of a SIM dedicated to providing merchandising opportunities to creators, as well as a venue for clubbing and other adult-oriented fun. MrsStormLove contends, “In SL you don’t ever know who you can trust, and you may meet people who you can call family…but the truth is can you?”
MrsStormLove in a sense, answers her own question by aligning herself with individuals who are also related to her in real life.  As Mr. Jazzy Melody explains, “I was invited to SL by my [real life] brother and my sister-in-law MrsStormLove.” RL relationships withstanding, the relationship between MrsStormLove and Mr. Jazzy Melody is a testament to the power intrinsic in SL because they not only love one another enough to hang out in SL, but they have expanded upon that love by creating a SIM that is a reflection of their sensual taste and family-oriented style. To affirm this, MrsStormLove states, “There is a show of respect and love in knowing that you have someone you can count on that is true family and  who will do the same for you….someone who values your opinion, and who sees the person behind the avi.”
To echo MrsStormLove’s sentiment, Mr. Jazzy Melody says, “I have love for my family on different levels...My r/l Bro is my blood and my sister-in-law…I love her like she is my blood sister...and we run my business together.”



  Solely SL Family
While there are RL families that also function as SL Family, there are other families who not only met on SL, but have decided to align themselves as family within the game.  One such family is the Akan Tribe.  Though PilarGomez acts as the tribe’s matriarch, the true behind the scenes leader is KWAME ANNAN αţεŁŁ (maxwellsamson).  In fact, αţεŁŁ is keenly responsible for the creation of the Akan Tribe, and has dedicated himself to adding even more SL Family to his fold by recently partnering with RAINY Cheri.  αţεŁŁ explains that the creation of his SL family started from bonding with another person from the same country as he is from.  He continues, ”[Specifically, I was] reading a profile of a woman...I then talked with her [and found that] she was from Africa too and after a week of talking, she asked me if I would like to be her brother. I agreed because I thought it would be great to have a sister in-world.”

With the start of that one sister, αţεŁŁ now has a huge family that consist of a partner, three sisters that include Mâɱâsiтà (pilargomez), Pòsh Quèèn LIU.JO (dinnate), and ƈɦǟɨ'ռǟ աɦɨȶɛ αţεŁŁ (nettaboo711), Aunt Şε αd Ѡit Iէ αţεŁŁ (toomuch4u2), daughter Ameyo  ANNAN  αţεŁŁ, and nieces Lisette qorchess Gomez (lisette.seranno), Qᴜᴇᴇɴ LIU.JO Dᴀᴜɢʜᴛᴇʀ (ttrane) and Яazzyвoo αţεŁŁ ɦɛǟȶ ůςιαηợ (crazzyb3lla). 
Though KWAME ANNAN αţεŁŁ’s family is growing by leaps and bounds every day, αţεŁŁ affirms that he not only has great family and great friends, but that “it is all about da lovin that God gave us to share ay.”


 Sharing the love in SL, Husband and Wife Style
Like it is possible to create an SL Family, it is also possible to find real love in SL…a love that can lead to the creation of an SL family that extends into RL. This possibility is a reality for partners Cinn Hansome and JA Hansome, who function as both a RL and SL couple. In SL, the couple runs Ocean Pointe, a family role play SIM that includes a clinic and family-based housing.  As Cinn Hansome explains, “I am a nurse in rl [but am] off of work on disability and thought it would be fun and challenging to open a realisitc clinic in sl...I find so many people here want a real pregnancy experience [and] for a myriad of reasons...I do my best to help...[consequently] the family evolved from there…”
This family evolution has led to not only love with JA Hansome, but has led to a real life comradery with Cinn’s SL sister, Toni Stickfigure. “I have known Toni Stickfigure for two years,” Cinn Hansome states, ”…and I met my SL sister in rl and we went on vacation together and plan on it again…”
Yet with the building of these family-based SL relationships, the biggest challenge can, according to Cinn Hansome can be “Time and Distance.” She continues, “Waiting on someone to come online [can be hard]…wanting to be together but having a computer between you [can be hard too].

JA Hansome adds, “Misunderstanding is always a huge threat in SL because of the lack of real physical interaction. Without seeing body language, hearing voice inflection and the constant threat of gossip, "drama" can always be a huge problem.”
Though this is the case, it is always best to rely on RL understanding and tolerance, as echoed by Mr. Jazz Melody.  He goes on, “Family don’t always agree...we all have different opinions but we sit and work it out together…In R/L i have 12 siblings not including myself...and we have learned its ok to agree to disagree. We are mature and love each other enough to sit and talk about until we come up with a solution. We have a bond that cannot and will not be broken...people have tested us on many levels but we always come out loving each other that much more.”


With a bond that extends from SL to RL, it seems as if a stronger bond is created across the board, and what a blessing that is!

Spotlight on the Elegant Luciano's Jazz Club & Lounge – Sunny Love Holiday Reporting…



Fans of Jazz music know that Jazz is synonymous with elegance, class, and grace. So one would, of course, want the venue that they enjoy their favorite Jazz music in to possess the same qualities. In order to truly enjoy and have a realistic experience at an jazz venue in Second life, the atmosphere must be light hearted, fun, friendly and “all that Jazz”. After attending the grand opening of Luciano's Jazz Club & Lounge, I was convinced that this lounge not only upheld all the qualities previously mentioned but so much more.


As soon as I teleported to the red carpet, my imagination sent me to a very upscale Jazz club in New York. I was quickly greeted by the lounge manager Sydney de Prata with a warm smile. After showing me my seat with a few friends that had already arrived, my heart was warmed with the flow of music and drinks. I waited with anticipation for Luciano de Prata to take the stage, and grace the packed room with his voice. 


Now, I have heard many live singers before, but none with such a silky smooth voice as Mr. de Prata. As the drink flowed and the dancing began I snuck up to the 2nd level on an elevator quite unique to second life……where I was glad to see another bar (more liquor…yay!), and classy lounge area that included a greedy table. Everyone was down stairs enjoying the event but I imagined men with black tie suits and cigars would be filling this lounge up once word got out. I was completely impressed overall with the event, and as any good reporter would, I contacted the lounge staff to find out more information. I was delighted that Mr. de Prata agreed to meet with me knowing how busy his schedule was. 

The following is the delightful conversation Mr. de Prata and I had:



Sunny: Hello Luciano, Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to meet with me today. Wow the venue is very lovely. I understand the great Catta Grizot, the creator of Atrium Designs built this club for you. Please explain to our readers the story behind the design.

Luciano: I'd love to. Even though I am Norwegian I've spent most of my adult life in New York,      where I've worked in music and entertainment. One of the theaters I kept returning to always caught my eye in a special way. It was so timeless and inspiring. The Bowery Ballroom originally built as a shoe store in 1929, believe it or not. I took inspiration from that for the facade of Luciano's. That is however the only similarity it has with the Bowery. I don't have the skill-set for building this as I wanted it to be, but Catta Grizot happens to be a good and old friend of mine. She loved the idea, and together we had it finished in about a month. She did it amazingly, I must say. No wonder she is so successful.

Sunny: Wow…..that is wonderful, and I must say it looks very real life like. What was your inspiration for opening Luciano's Jazz Club & Lounge?
           
Luciano: Throughout my years in Second Life, it was most of all the incredible live music that made me stay. I particularly love the ballroom jazz clubs that has become a true SL trademark.
Still, I always wished for a more intimate kind of Jazz Club as well. Like you would find in Manhattan's theater district or the Latin district in Paris. A quaint venue with that certain timeless atmosphere. That is why I decided to create Luciano's.

Sunny: Ah I see. I was able to attend the Grand Opening which occurred on December 27th, 2014, and I must say I felt the intimate, elegant, and timeless atmosphere as soon as I walked in the door so job well done. Since then, your jazz club has reached the top 10 of jazz clubs on every Saturday on the traffic stats…..that has to be exciting. What do you think helps contribute to the overnight success?

Luciano: Well, I like to think this was not a long-shot. Neither was it a spontaneous project. I have been toying with this idea for years, and built the venue about 20 times in my head. But timing seemed right now, and I got all the right people involved in the process.

Sunny: Yes, I think great staff always makes the difference! Speaking on staff….How many musical acts do you have currently playing here?

 Luciano: We have live concerts with a series of singers every Friday and Saturday as well as DJ's. So far this year we have booked acts throughout April, most of them for several gigs. I believe 8 different singers in total.

 Sunny: Other than Jazz…….What type of music is featured at your club?

Luciano: Naturally we try to feature as much jazz music as possible, but we also play quite a bit of blues, pop, rock and a bit of Latin American music.

Sunny: Always nice to give a variety. So tell me….where can people find out about upcoming events at Luciano's Jazz Club & Lounge?

Luciano: We have a very active Facebook page that I would recommend checking out. The web address is https://www.facebook.com/LucianosJazzClub. Also, people would be wise to join our group in-world. As we advertise all live music events there.

 Sunny: There are many talented people in sl who are always looking for a warm, and comfortable club like yours to perform at. How would one go about auditioning to perform at your club?

Luciano: Every Thursday we have Open Mic sessions between 5 pm and 7 pm slt. If someone stands out at one of those we will often offer them to come back to do a paid concert. Also singers and agents should feel free to approach me personally if they wish to play here. I pick all acts for the lounge myself.

 Sunny: Oh I am sure you have a great eye for talent. I was really impressed with your natural singing voice…..Have you been preforming in SL long, or did you just decide to do it for your club?

Luciano: I've been performing all my life, but I never thought I would be doing it in SL. It was in fact just after opening the club; I realized it would make a lot of sense to occasionally do a concert myself as well. And I've quite enjoyed it, to be perfectly honest. But I still prefer to come in here on a Saturday, sit at the bar with a glass of red, and listen to someone else blow the audience and myself away.

Sunny: That is amazing! I truly enjoyed meeting with you today. I am quite sure you are going to be doing big things in 2015. I wish you nothing but success! Thanks you for your time.



Please take time and visit Luciano's Jazz Club & Lounge, located on the wonderful sim of Lago De Prata The staff makes you feel at home, the atmosphere is inviting, and Luciano's voice is heavenly. Take your special someone for a night on the town, you won't regret it.
