IN MUSIC- JooZz Magic's brilliant sound in Second Life - Sandy Demina Reporting...


Staff Reporter
• Monday, July 26, 2010
JooZz is a Dutch musician, who started his musical career at the age of six. Playing the recorder first, which was replaced by the piano a year later. First band was formed at high school and ever since JooZz is deeply in love with Music.
In 1982 he entered the Rotterdam Conservatory, but family business needed him badly. Now, a few years later, it's Music Time again. Time for a second career...and hey, a Second Life as well !

The music of JooZz is best described as “coming from nowhere, going places”. Starting from scratch, JooZz takes you along to many exciting musical destinations, transferring breathtaking vistas into jewels of brilliant sound. Sometimes danceable, always rich, spiked with healthy doses of melancholy and lessons of life. Using the piano as a base point of reference, JooZz’s compositions, independent of any music style, keep your mind in motion until the next time you hit the ‘play’ button.

SPORTS & LEISURE: This The Crazy Blogger 'Should Have Made The All Madden- Stacey Cardalines Reporting...


Stacey wore her best t-shirt to the biggest interview of her animated career
AN INTERVIEW WITH SFL FOUNDER ROMEO TORVALAR

When people find out I'm a sportswriter, they invariably ask me about the same two or three topics. Cheerleading and wrestling come up a lot, as guys like those concepts when related to my pretty little avatar. The other question I get is "NFL style football," which has nothing to do with my looks.
Well.... scratch THAT one off the list. The majesty of SL has given birth to the SFL.

SPORTS & LEISURE- Oil Spill Zombie Rabbit Apocalypse- Stacey Cardalines Reporting...


... a Smurf's eye view of Stacey watching an oil spill
What with that oil spill in the real-life Gulf of Mexico, a person needs Second Life to get away from reality to.

Unless you have my job... then you end up at an oil spill. What's worse, it's also a Zombie Rabbit Apocalypse... 
because, as you know, thAT when bunnies get motor oil on them, they grow to be 8 feet tall and crave human blood.... sort of like the Nesquik Bunny with Riger Clemens' steroid use and the diet of Godzilla.


I went to the Oil Spill Zombie Rabbit Land sim today. It's right here:

http://slurl.com/secondlife/Kalvatar/194/141/22


Unfortunately, I went during the daytime, whenthe Zombie bunnies are sleeping. There sure is a hell of an oil spill happening there, although the adjoining nightclub or nearby suburban Manor development were not at all slowed by it.

Not much was happening... which may have been lucky for me, as I have enough problems fighting humans who aren't superpowered by a bath in crude oil. Sims take a while to get going, but I'd rather be a healthy writer with no story than a Pulitzer Prize winner with qa gigantic zombie bunny wound.

I did meet an executive from the oil company, who told me that everything was under control.

I tried to get the owner for an interview, but I keep odd hours. I also have a goofy monitor, and have trouble in dark sims. If you want to snoop around there, I get the sense that you may find something worse than I found.

MUSICIAN SPOTLIGHT-Azriahl Alternative Rock- Sandy Demina Reporting...


Staff Reporter
• Monday, July 12, 2010
Ontario native Kevin Kennedy (also known as Azriahl) brings a knife's edge to his solo acoustic performance as well as power and command in full band format. This is not the usual strumming balladeer. Soulful curios sifted from post-grunge rubble combine with his earthy candor to create rich songs and lyrical imagery. As broad as his northern home land, Azriahl's influences span the edgy rock of Alice in Chains, introspect of Radiohead, and gives a respectful nod to storytellers like Bob Dylan.
More than a decade behind the microphone has given Kevin an easy going but seasoned stage presence that engages his audience. He has the experience and instinct to absorb a crowd's energy and give it back in his performance. He thrives on it in fact and lively performances and approachability make Azriahl a crowd favorite anywhere he goes.
 
Typically, Azriahl’s sound falls into “Hard Rock Alternative”, and is always adding to his list of original songs as well as personalizing covers to breathe fresh life into inspiring tracks. As a band, they love outdoor festivals and gatherings, willing to place their music into the hearts and minds of anyone in attendance.
Azriahl after 2 years and half of live performance in Second Life is not so much inworld as before.However I've been lucky to catch him on line and so he kindly responded to my usual little virtual interview...

Staff Reporter
• Monday, July 19, 2010
ZeroOne Paz is a multi-instrumentalist and composer in the San Francisco Bay Area. He has performed in nearly every kind of musical ensemble imaginable, from orchestras to rock bands, bluegrass to acid jazz. His SL solo performances are unlike anything else you'll hear in the SL live music scene. Beautiful originals and heartfelt covers, sung by ZeroOne, and played on VIBRAPHONE! His fabulous virtual backup band is called The ZeroTones!

ZeroOne performs regularly in Second Life as a solo artist, and with singer/songwriter Pato Milo as a duo, and in jazz ensembles, playing drums, percusion, and vibraphone. He has composed three scores for aerial ballets and several soundscapes in collaboration with various Second Live artists.

Staff Reporter
• Monday, July 05, 2010
Everyone in SL should be sure to partake in the Harper Messmer Experience: this 100% virtual artist delights his audience with a soothing blend of pop, R&B, and rock featuring his own songs and those by some of today's popular artists.

Harper is one of the most popular artist in SL where he built a very good following.
At every gig he usually gathers his fans where they have the chance to listen to his voice just inworld.  He's not interested to pursuit any RL career.So he belongs to that group of artists who just want to perform in SL.
