RP Nexus News: True Blood Pumping in SL Cursa Charisma Reporting...

The phase of the moon kept the werewolves away, but vampires and fairies came out to play on July 2 with SL's Saturday night mistress of hiphop, DJ Nisa on Black Soul Rhythms Radio, at the Fangtasia Club in Hypnotic. BSR's Bobbie Naidoo was hostess, presiding over a major event with dozens in attendance.

(Podcast of the event is available here!)

Started in October 2010, this is a vampire sim, but there is no hunting and no biting. The True Blood clan has both vampires and humans as members and they "all just like to hang out, attend events and have a good time." Your reporter was hesitant despite this reassurance in the sim info card, but quickly found it to be accurate. The atmosphere was casual, friendly, and open, and signs on the wall declared, "No biting on premises".

LIKE OMG A MAKEOVER! ~Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

 I recently underwent a complete Avatar transformation courtesy of Ivy Maverick CEO of Maverick Designs and the Prince of Second Life (Yes, there is one in SL) and I have to say, like most peeps, I’m uncomfortable with drastic changes  but my post make over recovery time was painless and the experience  was a lot of fun. Together they truly collaborated and created the virtual me, in an Avatar.

  Music Event Production throughout SL. Artist management agency providing venues with performers, hosting and music management. 

   JaxxonRoxx Resident's Bio

Jaxxon hadn't had any sort of musical background until he decided to take up singing at the age of 14.  His first band was comprised of school friends and they would play the occasional concert.  With time, Jaxxon found himself with different musicians and they worked at many clubs in Gibraltar, establishing himself within the local music scene.  Having learned to play guitar and with an ever increasing fan base, Jaxxon knew it was time to showcase his own material.  This led Jaxxon to record his first album, with a well known band in 2002.  Jaxxon is producing his own songs now.   He also plays acoustic and electric guitar.

Currently he is working on his second album with fellow friends as well as constantly playing with his current band, Jetstream.  He hopes his next set of heartfelt songs will propel him to bigger things and is ready to take his music to a higher level.   Jaxxon comes to us in SL hoping to reach a wider audience.  Jaxxon will play covers, tracks and his own original material while singing in SL.

Celebrate St. Patrick's Day the Virtual Way and Teleport to a few charming places today!

Clenching my fist around a bottle of Jack Daniels and reporting from the front line isn't always the safest and easiest thing to do, but I like to go hard at what I do especially sporting a skirt this short and gripping onto a gold coin for dear life just for a story.

Insight from SL Elders. Is SL losing its luster or is it just us? Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

The SL Elders are becoming harder to find these days because many of them have left the grid altogether or visit once in a while to observe progress. Most are usually harder to spot then a UFO.
 Often times they can’t believe I’m still here but my response is simple. I’m a shameless SL addict and I want to continue to write about this virtual world and stay in touch with all the friends I have made through the years, but… I do question our future as the virtual world community evolves.

    Being called an elder makes me feel old, but it is what it is and I have been here long enough to have seen many different phases of Second Life and a multitude of personalities come and go. It saddens me when they are avies I have known for a long time that have done great things for the SL community

Women and shoes: A love affair in pairs no different in SL than in RL ...

For women shoes can become an all-consuming obsession. In RL some shoes can cost a fortune; yet while money itself does not bring happiness, a pair of new shoes brings on a kind of exaltation. Unlike clothes, shoes have a distinct advantage. Whether you're fat or thin, short or tall, beautiful or ugly, you can buy all the shoes your heart desires. They are capable of making you feel sexy, elegant or sporty at a single stroke. But in Second Life the fat thin rationale does not fly, yet we are still as obsessed about our shoes as we are in RL.

In RL we all aspire to owning Hermes, Gucci, Caovilla, Ferragamo, Blahnik, Laboutin, in SL it is Stiletto Moody, Maiyterya and FM Shoes.

Our intimate relationship with shoes begins shortly after we learn to walk. As soon as we want to feel "grown-up," we slip on a pair of our mother's shoes, preferably high heels, instantly heightening our sense of what it means to be female. And then what happens? We grow up and get to be the same size as Mummy and our personality begins to assert itself with the first independent purchase of shoes. As adults, we ask shoes to be our representatives. At any given moment, they are indicators of our age, mood and desires.

More than anything else, women's shoes speak the language of sex. You don't have to be a moralist or an anthropologist in order to understand the message transmitted by a girl in a pair of rubber-soled loafers versus one wearing noisy stilettos. But that's only a first impression. That old chestnut (heels = sex goddess, flats = nun) is constantly challenged by variations in fashion and customs. And yet, one thing remains certain: a high-heeled shoe is the object of apparel that - more than any other - marks the difference between men and women.

Shoes have featured prominently in the popular female narrative, be they Cinderella's glass slippers (clearly a symbol of virginity) or the stilettos worn by the metropolitan predators of "Sex and the City" - women who share two great weaknesses: men and shoes.

What’s more what about all the options we have since we have the option of wearing skirts, pants, or three-quarter length pants and that opens up all sorts of shoe possibilities. Then there are the seasonal choices we have to make, i.e. in the summer, we can wear open-toed shoes, in the fall we can wear pumps, and in the winter we can wear boots.

So with that alone, we have to have a black, brown, and a neutral pair of each type. That is nine pairs right there. Those shoes also double as going out shoes. Then we must have nice shoes in the event we have to wear an evening dress somewhere. We have a pair for the winter and the summer. Then, we have our sneakers. We have our working out sneakers and our stylish sneakers. Then we have an array of flip flops and sandals. So to our men out there, you see how we easily rack up that many shoes. ...It’s all about options.

CULTURE - The Creation Story, The Angels Perspective - Piper SecretSpy reporting...

Picture and elaboration by Unity Productions

With this article, my collaboration with SLE begins. Every week, I will try to offer a review about some work on stage in SL. I hope this idea will be desirable, as well as my style.

The performance I want to deal with this week is 'The Creation Story - The Angels Perspective', by Unity Productions.

Preceded, during the summer of 2010, by 'Come Away My Beloved', the idea to transpose in dance form the story 'The Beginning' by Gene Edward took shape in October.

Pet Karu and her group, within two months, managed to create a compelling performance, during which viewers are surrounded by scenery itself, which takes place at various levels and in different directions.
