Happy Cinco de Mayo! Here's What's Happening Today in Second Life:




Cinco de Mayo ( May 5th) is not a federal  holiday in Mexico or the United States. However, it is still celebrated. This day commemorates the Battle of Puebla in which the Mexican army claimed victory over France during the Franco-Mexican War in 1862. In the United States and Mexico, Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican Heritage with parades, festivals, traditional music and food. For others it is just another reason to get their drink on! (Even if it lands on a Thursday this year)
In Second Life, there are a few events happening but don’t forget to dress up first!

4:00pm SLT at River's Song Restaurant and Catering
On May 5, 1862, the Mexican army defeated the French army at the Battle of Puebla. This single military battle signified defeat of a European colonial power, and a victory for the Mexican people. This single battle was the roots of Cinco de Mayo.
What Cinco de Mayo has come to be, is much more than one battle in the colonial history of Mexico. Rather, it has come to signify Hispanic and Mexican pride and a time to celebrate the rich culture.



7pm SLT Cinco de Mayo at Club Eros with DJ Eco Spiritor
It's festival time!!   Wear your Spanish style dress, grab your sombrero and come party!! DJ Eco Spiritor will be spinning the tunes and taking requests.  Dress in theme and enter our contest or just come for the friends and music.  As always, our Sexy Cupids will be here to tease and tantalize you. 

Wherever or however you celebrate just remember to have fun! Happy Cinco de Mayo

In search of History: “Mexico in three times” Bimala Tagore Reporting




       Let me introduce you to “Mexico in three times”, an important documentary dedicated to the Centennial of the Mexican Revolution. Intelligent film reported by prominent Mexican voices, it enhances animated maps and artistic paintings. This film develops an enriching critical vision of crucial moment in history of Mexico in general charge of Enrique Krauze, writer for the International New York Times and Clio editorial director.

  Krauze was responsible for the writing vision and mission of this documentary it tries to explain the gradual process of decline of powerful Spanish monarchies and how Mexico claimed his independence. The sudden “power vacuum” in 1808, caused by Napoleon's invasion of Spain, would be the opportunity of autonomy of Mexico. This situation opened the door for Mexicans to reach their independence The first rebellions were severely repressed and this documentary reflects this troubled historical moment with an impeccable script movie in charge of Greco Sotelo and directed by Juan Prieto.



   Is relevant to this libertarian cause the Miguel Hidalgo’s conspiracy”, important figure who left the debate of freedom and summoned the people into rebellion. The scrip movie, wrote by Laura Emilia Pacheco and David MacareƱo, show how this leader defended a territory in hunger and poverty, dependency being the main reason for this and the valuable legacy that has ever been left to man: respect of the sovereign rights of countries. 


   This film - through a deep historical analysis – develops the most concerned ages of Mexico emancipation. Also the sim where the film will be screened is perfectly set in a traditional fair of Mexico. Even if you don’t understand Spanish you would feel absolutely astonished by the quality of this presentation. It includes gastronomical details such as exquisite variety of “mole” to guest, a detour dance dedicated to the moon, paving stone and colonial paintings of renowned Mexican artists.


    This documentary is a significant opportunity to know other culture in Second Life.  The land, called “Pabellon de la Cultura”, is deeply tied to Mexican national identity and regional culture this time.  This is other way to experience Mexican past without having to take a long plane flight. I felt in Mexico few seconds and almost saw the spirit of Octavio Paz whispering in my ear ancient secrets.  You can travel via teleport, without ever leaving your comfortable seat.



I really recommend this place and opportunity to face century old reality. This is a supranational perspective from the historian and you could understand how Mexico played an important role in the Latin American independence.  These documentaries provide a synopsis of one hundred years liberation efforts and also includes of several visual arts that developed over the geographical area and Mexican war of independence. 


    Arts and culture are an integral part of society in Mexico. You will although watch early and late murals in hands of Rivera, Orozco among others. The paints work reveals this rebellious character and the art of storytelling trough images. They are stunning Mexican print art work. These arts crudely follow the history of Mexico. Become a part of this cultural event. For those of us who really love this “game” called Second Life, the realization of any event like this depends on the community.

Cinco De Mayo; What’s it all About? Lanai Jarrico Reporting…




Cinco De Mayo is also known as El Dia de la Batalla de Pueble. It marks a day in history when the Mexican army celebrated it’s victory over France in 1862 at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco- Mexican War . It was a battle that lasted 6 years.  Since the defeat, the United States has adopted the holiday turning it onto a celebration of Mexican heritage and culture. It is very popular where there are higher concentrations of the Mexican-American populations, like Los Angeles, Houston, and Chicago. It is also observed in many cities across the states. In 2005, Congress issued a concurrent resolution to the President for appropriate ceremonies and activities. Celebrations on this day include festivals, dancing,  Mexican food, drinking and mariachi performances. In Second Life it is also observed by Many.

 I found a couple of places having activities for Cinco De Mayo so grab your camera and let's go party hopping. You will most likely meet new people, get involved in the festivities and have fun!

Check out whats going on this weekend!

What is Cinco de Mayo and why do we celebrate it?- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…




      Well…If you think it is a celebration of intoxicating proportions, you are partially right, but if you wanted to get all Wikipedia nerdy about it, Cinco de Mayo is not a National or Mexican holiday nor is it Mexico’s Independence Day, like peeps might believe it to be.

  The United States has taken over this unofficial holiday to give people more of  a reason to let go of their inhibitions and party on with drunken madness, but it has become commercialized.

OPERA JOVEN sim is in danger of closing-GUADALAJARA, JALISCO, MEXICO - La Perla Tapatia



According to the descriptions, Jalisco is one of the most beautiful States in Mexico. Guadalajara City is the capital. This SIM is a touristic replica built by OPERA JOVEN (www.operajoven.com) a RL nonprofit cultural & artistic organization. But, it is in danger of closing its doors like many other non profits being hurt by LL's decision to cancel the 50% discount given to non profits on islands tiers.
http://tinyurl.com/sl-discount-cancelled


Moby Randt writes in a notecard, 

"This is a shame because these organizations provide SL many content and handle diverse interesting educative and cultural projects. Without this discount surely many of these organizations will abandon SL soon."


Without this discount, OPERA JOVEN cannot keep paying this sim and unfortunately it will disappear.
 However, Linden Lab offers these organizations to pay in advance up to 2 years before 2011 to still benefit of this discount. http://tinyurl.com/sl-offer-pay-in-advance

At this time, six months costs $885 dollars, equivalent aprox. to L$250,000.

From 2011 this price will be doubled.
