The Wire: Spotlight feature: Rap Music by Zouk Music Ambassador, Caribbean, French, Creole, English -Cynamon pearl Reporting


Zeelot Gearz is a Zouk music ambassador coming from the Caribeann island of Guadeloupe. He has the talent, smarts and business ‘know how’ to market himself and make a presence in the game worldwide. And you would have to, coming from and obscure little location in the French West indies. The music of Zouk is reminiscent of African rythms, calypso and even a bit of salsa.

If I had to find the Guadeloupe on a map it might take me a minute,but located southeast of Puerto Rico and close to Dominica next to Martenique stands a French West Indian paradise.

Moni Telling-Moni Fashions Project, Jewelery, Womens clothing designs,photography Cynamon pearl Reporting...




The Moni Fashions project is the brainchild of creative owner and entrepreneur Moni Telling. Moni is a jeweller crafting custom bling designs, who also designs women’s clothes in addition she is great photographer. When I think of the true essence of an entrepreneur Moni Telling comes to mind. She exemplifies the characteristics of a motivated and creative soul. Moni has cultivated multiple skills and talents all on her own.

The Wire: Spotlight, Aza Photography Modeling Group -- Cynamon Pearl reporting



An organic process of avatar transformation is taking place in Second Life and photographers are in the advantageous role of facilitating this magic. Just ask experienced photographer Azarene Jewell who has been finessing her talent behind the lens now for three years in Second Life. Moreover, Aza has taken initiative in setting the stage, which entails conceptualizing a theme and then translating the story and executing the idea into a desired outcome. These are elements required to make your professional photos a success. Aza tells me that although she enjoys taking photos of anyone her niche has streamlined more toward professional models, artists and fashion editorials. Aza Photography has definitely carved out its own signature style with that ‘something’ that is unqiue.

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 http://slurl.com/secondlife/hypnotic/70/22/25 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".

FYI Talk ~~ Essence of Ebony CEO and Model Latrelly Flux

As an African-American woman in real life and in Second Life, I'm always interested in learning of people, events, and spaces in the metaverse where African Americans are acknowledged, celebrated, and given support.

Over a month ago, I was at a talk show on the grid where the discussion was on black models in Second Life. Specifically, the hosts were talking to the CEO of the Miss Essence of Ebony Competition, Latrelly Flux, the model VA community manager Kalyabreea Capelo, and Miss EoE 2011 Imani Enzo.

In real-life, as a doctoral student, I'm interested in the ways African American women find, create, and develop themselves in virtual spaces, so the discussion on race, gender, virtual worlds, community, and more fascinated me beyond belief.

It was that fascination that made me contact Flux so that I could sit down with her, talk to her, and learn more about EoE; it is an entity in Second Life that definitely deserves press.
