Digital Rabbit Hole-“Window On A Train” ~ Our Entry For The UWA Vl Machinima Challenge 2013 ~

We needed a train! 
Not just any old train, but a 1970′s Diesel Train, detailed and very real looking inside and out. Nat and I scoured every train-store, Marketplace train offering in SL, and could not find what we wanted. One of the reasons I think our production took as long as it did (close to 5 months) was finding that illusive train. So being hopeful, even while we were being  disappointed, “I heard so and so made a train for so and so” and finding all leads running into dead ends, we decided to build a track and maybe..”The train would come.”

Spotlight on KARIMA HOISAN By Marriellanna Resident

It was both a sad and joyous occasion when Karima Hoisan agreed to come to perform for us at Irish Estates recently, her first time back in realms for several months.  The elation at seeing her again was tempered with the knowledge of why she had left sl in the first place - to make the long Journey from her rl Costa Rican home to visit a friend in the United States and more poignant still, it was a journey made with the sole purpose of being at the end for a  childhood friend dying from Cancer.

Irish Estates Events: Poetry Reading by Karima Hoisan -September 13th @ 1pm SLT

Dear friends,
I warmly invite you to my poetry reading this coming; Thursday September 13th 1-2 pmslt. Irish Estates. It has been four months since my last reading, and I admit I am somewhat nervous, but at the same time, very excited to be doing my first, at such a beautiful, and elegant spot. This is a new venue for me.
I have some new poems to share and over half of them are to my own musical compositions. I have chosen what I feel is an eclectic mix of moods and feelings, all accompanied by images played behind me, and hope they delight you for this hour.

You are cordially invited to join me. I look forward to seeing you all again...

-Karima Hoisan

The Poetry of Karima Hoisan at Ce Soir Arts - Allen Eppenberger Reporting…

Ce Soir is a place of quiet solitude. I was to be here for the poetry of Karima Hoisan. The hosts for this evening are Aeon and Mireille Jenvieve-Woodford, the owners of Ce Soir Music and Arts. I strolled about the grounds of this sim during the mid afternoon settings. The low shadows give the location a Gothic feel. Rather than a trimmed and manicured garden, you will find grounds that haven't been mowed, and trees in need of pruning. This is a wonderful setting for the buildings, which are open and spacious.

I had the opportunity to sit down with Ms. Hoisan on the Tuesday before her performance at "Kari's Kantina del Mar" to conduct a quick interview. Ms. Hoisan has been in-world for four years. Currently living in Costa Rica, she prefers to keep her persona in Second Life and physical reality separate. Karima isn't classically trained as a writer, yet she has been writing since the age of 9. She's published in the default world, writing under a pen-name. Karima has two poetry books published, and two children’s books of poetry. She is featured in an anthology of 13 poets chosen internationally and published this year in the USA. She also plans on publishing her book “Digital Rabbit Hole” in RL, in a soft-cover format.
At one point, she had not written in over a year, so she brought a friend into SL. There, they read to each other to get their creative juices flowing. She sometimes writes her own music to complement her poetry.
