SPORTS & LEISURE- Puckettes Calendar Available Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

Many major sports league utilize Stacey in their marketing...

A lot of people get all hung up at Holiday time, because they don't know what to get that Special Someone for a Christmas present.
Readers of this column won't have that problem, however... because they'll know that the 2011 Puckettes calendar is now available.
The Puckettes, who are the GOHA hockey cheerleaders, put out a calendar every year. The proceeds go to several Puckette-style ventures.
A Puckette calendar is 12 months of hockey cheerleader goodness. Each month is theme-driven, with one of the Puckettes representing each 30-31 days.

ART & ENTERTAINMENT: Pop Art Display opened in Second Life-Sandy Demina reporting...

Morghana Savira
Staff Reporter
• Monday, December 20, 2010
A new exhibition area devoted to Pop Art has been opened on 23 November :the Pop Art Display (P.A.D.) .

By raising daily commonplace reality to the artistic dimension Pop Art accomplishes its transfiguration: it sheds light on what is closer yet often invisible to us and through such an artistic process it penetrates the meaning of life in mass society.

The identity of form and content in the advertised product undergoes a process of estrangement and reversal. In pop works of art the sexy element of images becomes disquieting, euphoria has a shade of melancholy, glamour and make-up are covered with a dim layer, precision is turned into provocation.

Pop Art has widened two key concepts of modern times, “double” and “dislocation”, and has highlighted mass media as the incessant producers of the double of everything. Most of our experience is the experience of the “other” reality, the one that the media have arranged for us and communicate to us.

SPORTS & LEISURE- Dance Ballet Academy Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

At 5 feet tall, Ballerina Stacey can still kick Kobe Bryant in the face.
You wouldn't have to hang out with me that long to figure out that I'm sort of a jock.
I'm the only one of my girlfriends who owns a hockey jersey. I'm the only person I've met here (outside of the people I met at the particular sims) who has watched a football practice. I'd have watched a football game as well, but I was in jail after a fistfight.
A good psychiatrist could probably convince me that I have some unresolved love-me-Daddy issues from my childhood, but I don't have time for that kind of sh*t. I just play a lot of golf, and maintain a level of fashion that makes Butch jokes not really work on me.
However, like any girl, I have a great deal of admiration for those who are Graceful. I'm not graceful, and say "Ooops" as much as "Hello" when I try to navigate a busy nightclub. It carries over into real life, as I was an awful waitress. You were getting your martini shaken, not stirred.
Of course, someone who plays on the computer as much as I do is bound to develop a little bit of manual dexterity, and a girl can use that skill to become a paragon of femininity. That's where this article is headed today.
There are certain girls who wield a bit more clout than others when people look at the Fairer Sex as a whole. Princesses, cheerleaders, diva-type singers, head nurses, Best Actresses and Supporting Aactresses, Miss (Your State Here), etc... if you're 8 year old daughter wants to grow up to be one, you know what I'm talking about.

SL ARTS & LITERATURE: Discovering an Ancient Celebration with a Virtual Twist.

The Yule Festival in OZLAND began December 10th and will continue through January 2nd , 2011. It boasts a vast array of events, an incredible festival site in the ruins of an Ancient Roman Fort, and a heart and celebratory spirit in the Celtic tradition. The Yule Festival is the first of eight such annual events produced by The Wild Fox Rovers that coincide with the Celtic Year. Poetry, Storytelling, Music and a Snow-person building contest all are part of this diverse celebration. This event caught my attention because of my interest in the bardic and oral storytelling traditions of the Celtic people. With the Festival being almost a month long, there is still plenty of time to catch the great events and enjoy the spirit of Yule in Second Life.

In today's economy, when we're all thinking about how to save a few dollars, doesn't a mix and match wardrobe make a lot of sense?

Bridging the gulf between super high fashion and a more approachable version is the focus of Bliss Couture Basic which opened its doors on December 10.

Bliss Couture Basic consists of 35 new mix and match designs.

The collection made its debut with a rambunctious fashion show by Mimmi Boa, Miss Bliss Couture 2010 and producer of the event. This new Bliss concept follows closely on the heels of their recently released hair range.

Bliss Couture Basic has opened with a big bang with a 50% off sale on the complete new line. These prices are valid from December 10th to 28th, and the range is available at the amazing location specially designed by its highly talented designer, Amutey DeCuir.

SPORTS & LEISURE-GOHA Season Ending Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

The Puckettes... if you need a laugh, the right wing of the cheer formation is Kacey and Stacey.
Last chance to catch the biggest hockey league on SL!

The Global Online Hockey Association is concluding their 11th season Tuesday night. Come on down and check out some virtual hockey!

Even if you don't like hockey, come down and watch yours truly do some cheerleading. I'm a Puckette...the short one, if you end up sitting in the Heavens.

GOHA runs a very well-done hockey league. They have nearly a dozen teams, all stocked with dedicated players. They have several top-notch arenas that don't lag badly. They have people like Jack Belvedere and Kayden Piers who work tirelessly to put forth a great product.

I've managed to gsther much of the sweet gear GOHA offers, mostly by flirting shamelessly with the league staff. Hey... I like jerseys, and try to get every one- home and away.

I love GOHA, and can't recommend it highly enough. If you want to play, they have constant training and rookie orientation. Everyone's friendly. You a girl? Girls play- and frequently star- in GOHA. Are you a Neko, or do you have a horse's tail? It's all good at GOHA.

If you like cheerleading, I'd recommend the Puckettes to you. It's easy to pick up, you get mentored by the veterans, and you end up with a bunch of cool outfits. I actually use the cheerleader HUD to dance in clubs, but I'm somewhat eccentric and feel dances should involve backflips.

Just want to watch hockey? Even better. There's plenty of room in the arenas, we have games nearly all the time, and the atmosphere is welcoming and hospitable. I even try to hand out coffee to the fans, as hockey arenas are cold if you aren't skating or dancing. I can guarantee that you will be appreciated.

Here's GOHA's website:

...and here's the Puckette's website:

... and here are the remaining games... you can get to the arena with the links from the website:

Tue Dec 7, 2010 6:00 - 7:00 PM Cobras @ Polar Bears Brooks Arena - Blueliner Sim
Tue Dec 7, 2010 7:15 - 8:15 PM Whales @ Wolves Jericho Hill Arena - Jericho Hill Sim

SL ARTS & LITERATURE: Get Wrapped Up In Stories at the 3D AIDS Quilt

Jenaia Morane believes in the power of stories. She believes in the power of stories to transform. Classic literature, new works, fiction of all sorts can do that, but that is not Morane’s passion. Her objective is the story of YOU – the story within you and how such stories can be used most importantly to heal. Morane herself would add that her projects are not about her. Morane’s gift, and her mission, is setting at liberty the stories of others and allowing them to soar in the open breeze where they can do the most good. Morane, along with partner Marty Snowpaw, are the creators of Story Quest – The Virtual World Story Project, and of Storybook Island. They have added a new chapter to the story of their work on the Second life Grid: The 3D Aids Quilt.

Tis the season! Time for creative forces of the Virtual World to don their festive apparel, and let fly with holiday cheer. Some events have already taken place.

In between the virtual holiday shopping, and the treasure hunts for festive freebies, add as many of these events as you can stuff in a stocking to your “Must Do” list through New Year’s Day:

Free At Last! Thank God Almighty!
Stacey in her new outfit. It was torn off her 10 minutes later.
Stacey is paroled from Pandora's Box Prison...
Your favorite feisty little sportswriter is nothing if not fearless. Not a lot of people would allow themselves to serve a week of their time at Pandora's Box Prison, but Stacey Cardalines is not a lot of people. She's actually just one person.

SPORTS & LEISURE-Sailing And Whaling (on Stacey)- Stacey Cardalines Reporting...

Stacey lures her foe at the charity event into a state of overconfidence...
Staff Reporter
• Monday, July 12, 2010
I spent a better part of Friday attending charity events. They were held in areas ranging from a wrestling ring to a sailboat race. All for a good cause, as we say.
A friend of mine named Sea Gypsy has run into some IRL difficulty. She just lost her home, and doesn't have the money to keep up her SL house. Her friends banded together to help her out with the virtual house. It's the least we could do.
I attended the sailing race, although I didn't sail. Me on a sailboat is an ugly thought, and I'd most likely have fouled up the more serious sailors. I stayed on-shore, took some pictures, and that most likely worked out for the best.
