Spotlight on Nocturne Estates Rentals: Where Luxury Living Meets Tranquil Nights-Grand Opening on October 6th- Lanai Jarrico Reporting…

Photo credit to Poppy Lemongrass


Over the past 18 years I have toured many sims in Second Life and it never ceases to amaze me. Every landscape and detail is like stepping into an artist’s masterpiece and being a part of their unique artwork. I had the pleasure of such a place that took me away on an adventure into someone else's imagination brought to life. Nocturne Estates is one of those places where you feel instantly at peace surrounded by nature and beauty. I had the pleasure of meeting Fiore di Luna and learning about this new venue. I have a feeling it will be a place where others will feel the energy and experience the awe I felt when I was there.




Interview with Fiore di Luna






SLE: Hi Fiore, it’s nice to meet you.  Can you share a little about yourself?


Fiore di Luna: In my "first life" I am a travel nurse. I spend around 48 weeks a year away from home moving from city to city, state to state. With WiFi, my gaming laptop, and Second Life I can take a little bit of home with me on assignment. My passion in Second Life is building, interior design, music and dancing, and spending time with close friends.



SLE: Being a nurse is a selfless profession. Your passion is reflected in the beautiful atmosphere you created in Second Life.What inspired you to create Nocturne Estates? Can you share with our readers what it has to offer guests?



Fiore di Luna: I have traveled throughout the U.S. both small towns and metropolitan cities. I felt most inspired by the forested landscapes, the waterfalls and hot springs, and gazing into the deep blue waters of Crater Lake. I wanted to be able to share this experience with others. Our mission is to provide residents with a haven of refined living spaces surrounded by natural beauty. There are waterfalls scattered throughout the islands, hidden caves, and nature paths to explore. At Nocturne Estates we look to cultivate a community of like-minded members who will enjoy gathering at one of our venues for an evening of live music or sailing out from the marina on an aquatic adventure.




SLE: Your vision is outstanding. While touring the various locations on the sim, I noticed a lot of detail in the beautiful landscapes I explored. Did you design this sim yourself?


Fiore di Luna: I had envisioned a community of sims based on the Pacific Northwest (U.S.) The idea of living in and surrounded by natural beauty is what inspired me to create Nocturne Estates. I was fortunate to have met Poppy Lemongrass and Vitani Frakenstein, the two incredibly talented women behind Catacomb. They were able to see my vision, collaborate, and work alongside me during the design process. I would highly recommend Catacomb to anyone looking for a sim designer. If you look hard enough you'll find their signature tombstone buried somewhere on one of the sims. I would also like to recognize someone that has been a confidant, a sounding board, and a partner in the intricate design and creation of Nocturne Estates, Celeste Pinkney. Sometimes it feels as though we inhabit a shared hive mind. Thoughts and ideas flow effortlessly between us, and we finish each other's design ideas with beautiful synchronicity. Together, we have transformed mere ideas into works of art.


SLE: I will have to look for that!  Do you currently have any rentals available? If so, can you share some information with our readers?


Fiore di Luna: At Nocturne Estates Rentals, we understand that where you live plays a vital role in the quality of your second life. We have an exclusive portfolio of meticulously crafted rental properties available. Each residence is designed with the utmost attention to detail, featuring unparalleled views and a commitment to luxury that defines the Nocturne Estates experience.



SLE: Nocturne Estates isn't just about luxury rentals and amazing landscapes, tell me about Nocturne Alchemy, Whiskey Road and the marina?


Fiore di Luna:  Nocturne Estates will host a marina located near the expansive sailing waters of Fruit and Eden Islands. Nocturne Marina’s breathtaking waterfall views and crystal blue waters create an idyllic backdrop for nautical adventures. Our marina will offer a range of boat mooring options from permanent slips to transient moorings each designed to accommodate boats of various LI.



SLE: That’s a perfect setting for a romantic date on the water.




Nocturne Alchemy is an unapologetically sophisticated nightclub aesthetically designed with eroticism and kink pulsing through every corner inviting guests to transform themselves.  Patrons should be prepared to unleash their inner savage as they revel in the music mixology and ambiance of Nocturne.  We have curated a lineup of top-notch live performers and DJs featuring a selection of EDM, ranging anywhere from heavy dubstep and DnB bangers, electro, house, and chill downtempo, all mixed for our guests aural pleasure.

Whiskey Road Live Music Bar where the stage is set, the drinks are poured, and the music takes center stage. We're here to provide our guests with an authentic live music experience that pairs perfectly with their favorite whiskey or beverage of choice.  We invite guests to step into a cozy, rustic-inspired setting with ambient lighting and wooden accents framing an outdoor space made for dancing.  It's the perfect backdrop for an evening of live music. Our stage comes alive with the sounds of talented live artists. From blues and rock to jazz and acoustic sets, we curate a diverse lineup that ensures there's something for everyone's musical taste. Our mission is to celebrate the soul of live music and offer a space where artists and patrons can connect. Come and immerse yourself in the live music experience until the final encore.



SLE:  It sounds like you have a well rounded selection of music genres and atmospheres to just relax, people watch and have a great time. Are you currently hiring? If so, what positions do you have to offer and how can people apply?


Fiore di Luna: We recognize that there are many skilled and talented individuals in SL from DJs, live performers, graphic artists, photographers, videographers, designers, bloggers, and too many other talents to list here. We encourage people who are interested in contributing to this diverse and unique community to reach out to myself (divakadupul), celeste.pinkney, or one of our available staff members.



SLE: I’m excited to check out your events. What group can guests join to stay up to date with what’s going on at Nocturne?


Fiore di Luna:  We invite guests to join the group,  [ Nocturne Estates ] VIP. All of our events can be located on the SL Events calendar (search Whiskey Road or Nocturne Alchemy) as well as the monthly calendar located in our leasing office and discord server.



SLE: You have a grand opening coming up on October 6th, What kind of activities will be hosting?


Fiore di Luna: Beginning Friday Oct 6th through Sunday Oct. 8th Nocturne Estates will be hosting a Lollapalooza style grand opening.  We have had an incredible group of talented live artists and DJ mixologists to help celebrate our opening.


SLE: Congratulations on your grand opening!  Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers about Nocturne Estates?


Fiore di Luna: Nocturne Estates would like to send you a personal invite to the grand opening. Please reach out to divakadupul, celeste.pinkney, brooks.conundrum, pegasaurus.waifu, or kimmiewest for an invitation.

Canyon Cove - A Truly Unique Adults Only, Nude Optional Destination

 


Our Grand Opening is July 30th beginning at 11am. There are still some things needed to be done at Canyon Cove, aesthetics mainly, but people who come can enjoy surfing, caves, scuba diving, horseback riding, cliff diving, amazing DJ's, and an auto guided hot air balloon tour (adult). I'm debating myself about hang gliding though. If a hang glider crashed into the balloon my SLinsurance doesn't cover that. In the future I will have sim wide rentals in the sky complete with sim surrounds. My builder is none other than the hugely talented Naru Darkwatch. There is nothing she can't do from sim design to terraforming to landscaping to creating logos such a Canyon Cove's logo. I am truly blessed.

Canipanic Maslow and the ongoing legacy of the ~O~ Lounge - Wendz Tempest Reporting



    The history of the  ~O~ Lounge is rich and colorful with humble beginnings, a love for all music genres, and an appreciation for all types of voices. Novice, intermediate, professional, these titles do not mean as much as the fun and camaraderie experienced in the wonderful world of Karaoke entertainment.


   In the front and center, managing the ~O~ Lounge is Canipanic Maslow, veteran producer & performer on the fly, who has recently moved the lounge’s location to another region, complete with a new and larger venue. This year, the  ~O~ Lounge turns 16 and continues to open its doors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, still the prime location for discovering Second Life’s latest and greatest on the live music scene. 


  Here we ask Cani a few questions about himself and questions about what his greatest work in Second Life is.

WT- Please tell the readers a little about yourself, how you came to Second Life?

Canipanic Maslow (CM)- Initially I came to Second Life because I was playing Tiger Woods Golf on my computer. And I saw something that mentioned this 3D Virtual World, and I thought, ‘Wow, that’d be neat, I’ll see if they have golf.’  So I signed up for it and came in. They didn’t have golf. I found a golf shop in my search, but they only sold clothing. So for the first year or so, I just walked around visiting people and hanging out at different campsites, learning how to do simple things. And that’s about all I did until I decided to start the  ~O~ Lounge.”




WT- How about telling the readers how you were personally involved in the creation of the  ~O~ Lounge?

CM - I was hanging around this girl, named Bell Clellon, and she was a KJ (Karaoke Jockey) in real life. She had a thing she did every week in her town, where she went out there and ran the karaoke thing. I was hanging around with her and I said, “Well let’s do it here!”.  So she was the inspiration for it. When we tried it back then, there was no voice (in SL) so we tried it on Skype, and anybody that wanted to join us had to join Skype. It was really problematic. Basically, I gave up, thinking it couldn't be done.

One day I was hanging around a girl named Mitzi, we were on voice, and she told me, “Cani, mute your mic. I love this song!”. I didn’t know what she meant, but I muted my mic. And then she turned her speakers on, and she sang.

And that was the day the ~O~ Lounge was born because then everything was in sync. It dawned on me that as long as the microphone could hear the voice and the speakers at the same time, it’ll be in sync. Because before, we could never get everything in sync. That was the day Karaoke was born in Second Life. Open Mic Karaoke. There was nothing like that before. There were performers, but nothing with Open Mic.

And it took off right away. Mitzi was the builder so she built the lounge, and I went all around and was telling people about it. Nobody believed me. I’d say, “Next week we’re going to start Karaoke.” And they’d say, “Karaoke, what are you talking about, you can’t do karaoke here.”

Our grand opening was a hit, there were 28 people there because everyone was curious as to how we were going to do Karaoke in Second Life. We only did it once a week at that time, but people wanted more. It became 2 days a week for a few hours. Then more days and more hours, and people weren’t leaving after 5 hours. It was just a matter of 3 months when we decided to make it full-time, 24/7, because nobody would go home, they just wanted to sing and sing. And we’ve been like that ever since.


WT - What else do you do in Second Life to promote the Live music scene?

CM- Elvera and I, (Elvera Lerner is the co-owner of the  ~O~ Lounge with me), she is the co-owner of the ~O~ Lounge also, and The Music Hall of Fame Group. She keeps me firmly planted in reality and my head out of the clouds. 

The Music Hall of Fame Group was started by a woman named BringitOn Paine. She was one of the biggest promoters of the music scene in Second Life. She became ill and couldn’t continue on so she asked Elvera and I if she could take it over for her. In most groups with singers, all they’re able to do is send out notices for their shows. 


WT- Please elaborate on what the Music Hall of Fame group is?
CM- The Music Hall of Fame has a resource center. These performers can add their names to be hired and venue owners can come in and click on a board. There are three buttons which are, fees or tips, the genre they want, and the day of the week/time they need them to perform. There are 170 top performers on that Music Hall of Fame board and only the ones that fit that category or criteria, are going to be shown to them.

There’s also a board up there with all the open mic places and karaoke places I could find in Second Life because new performers need to get established. I always bring new performers to the resource center, and I show them that board and tell them they need to go to as many open mics as they can, to become established. Venue owners go there looking for people to hire, and that’s the way people get to know you.

There are other resources like where to get your stream, Soundcloud links, ReverbNation, or youtube, wherever they have their music.

I encourage people at the  ~O~ Lounge to start performing when I hear someone that I think can do it. Plus I also help people learn how to stream. That’s what I do, and everyone around me tends to be the same way. They have the same passions. 



WT- The  ~O~ Lounge continues to be a haven for novices and professionals alike, and your work with the Music Hall of Fame has helped so many performers. Tell us a little bit about what you’re currently working on?


CM- I have an  ~O~ Karaoke Lounge website that’s being worked on right now that is going to promote a lot of people as well as the  ~O~ Karaoke Lounge Podcast that I’ve reinstated which started in 2012.  I’ll be doing interviews, teaching people how to stream, making videos on how to stream, and dual stream, as well as making videos on the various broadcasters and how to set those up.

DIRTY RYTHMS: YA CAN’T KEEP A GOOD SIM DOWN – JOSH (THOMAS1 BELLIC) REPORTING


This past week, in my sojourns around the Grid, I ran into a wonderful couple, Richh and Alexxxa Devin, the owner/proprietors of Dirty Rythms.  Many of you will remember DR from years past, as it has always been a mainstay of adult club venues in SL.   After a Decade of service to the SL Community, Richh and Alexxxa decided to close their Fan-Favorites club, while they were still immensely popular, preferring to direct their attention to other pursuits.  But, after two years with constant encouragement from their legion of fans and friends,  they decided to reopen DR in a completely new venue.   On their anniversary, Richh opened a new club, Alexxxa’s Place…and the rest of DR returned around it.

One of the things that have always been a trademark of Dirty Rythms in general, and the proprietors specifically, has been Richh’s phenomenal generosity towards his guests.  Whether it is the gifts he gives out every hour to randomly selected guests at their events or the way he salts the ‘Sploder with extra cash, so “everyone’s a winner”.  Or perhaps it is the monthly photo contest with one lucky winner each month walking away with the 3,000 Linden prize!   Richh and Alexxxa run a First-Class operation, completely free of charge to their many guests. 

I managed to corner Richh and Alexxxa between gigs, and they graciously consented to answer a few questions I posed.


Josh (Thomas1 Bellic) (JB):    Hi Alexxxa and Richh!  Thanks for agreeing to chat with me.  Let me start off by asking how did you come up with the idea for “Dirty Rythms”?

Richh Devin (RD):   Dirty Rythms was always intended for the discriminating adults as an awesome spot for adult playtime as well as the hot spot for some of the best  DJs on the grid.

JB:    What an amazing build here.  Tell me, what is the basic Theme of the Dirty Rythms?

RD: Theme: Music and Entertainment

Dirty Rythms has everything for discriminating adults. Hot playtime spots with the best gear in SL. Awesome beach hangouts, picture-perfect spots for the SL photographers, and party spots for you and your friends, featuring some of SL's hottest DJs. Your fantasies come true! 

JB: What makes the Dirty Rythms compound different from other Adult Sims out there?

Alexxxa Devin (alexxxa.mynx) (AD): Dirty Rythms has been built with much attention to detail.  Upon exploring the sim people will find the perfect spot for photographs, naughty play, or both!  Music on the sim is commercial free and there are screens set up in strategic spots all over the sim for guests to watch the commercial-free video playlist!



JB: Tell me about some of the various areas in Dirty Rythms?

AD: We have various venues for themed parties such as Tiki Cove, the Tiki Bar,  Tiki Country,  the Beachhouse, the Romantic Gazebo, Alexxxa's Place  Lounge & Discotheque, the Photo Studio and of course,  the Swingers Clubhouse!      On exploring the Clubhouse, you will find the best Red Room on the grid, IMHO! Using the Teleporters on the sim you can select the various venues available here. There are also some hidden private spots on the sim, which people will find when exploring.

JB: OK Alexxxa… tell me…and I promise to keep it just between you and me….(and our 70,000 readers each month)….what are some of your personal Favs here at Dirty Rhythms?

 As a DJ of course I love being at the events of some of the best DJs on the grid right here at Dirty Rythms.  And, of course, we have some of the best furniture and gear for naughty play all over the sim, something for everyone, which we have tested thoroughly! 


JB: Do you have accommodations for people who may want to live here?

Currently, there are no rentals at Dirty Rythms. However, we have some  people who have made Dirty Rythms their 'home base' where they log in like home

JB: As you know, there is no shortage of Adult entertainment sims here.  What is the “Dirty Rythms” difference and why should people come here for all their entertainment needs?

 AD: We take pride in Dirty Rythms being the adult sim with class. You will discover that once you visit us.  People are encouraged to come and get naughty and know that they can expect to be respected because NO means NO on our sim.  The BIG difference?  No long list of rules when you land!    Our welcoming notecard mentions RESPECT and if respect is used by all, a list of rules should not be required!

JB: What has been your greatest challenge in operating Dirty Rythms?

RD: With the ever-dwindling numbers of people on SL lately, attendance to events, etc has been an issue but numbers have been increasing lately.  



JB: I understand you host special events here.  How can people find out about those things?

AD: We advertise all events on the SL Events page, the Dirty Rythms groups notices, as well as on our Dirty Rythms Discord page!   DJ Alexxxa's SL  Group is also used for all Dirty Rythms events advertising!  For booking special events such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, etc, please contact   Alexxxa Mynx (Devin).

JB: And how about the future?  Do you have any improvements or changes in mind for the weeks and months ahead?

AD: For the future, in the new year there ARE some plans in the works.  Once ready for unveiling, those will be revealed in the Dirty Rythms Groups notices as well as in Alexxxa's Group notices and of course, Dirty Rythms Discord page.  

JB: Is there anything else you would like to share with our SL Enquirer readers?

RD: We encourage all who read about us in the SL Enquirer to come and explore the sim and they will find their perfect spot for hanging out with their friends.   They are also very welcome to join us at the events as advertised on the board, on the events page, or on our Discord page.  Special events will also be advertised there!



So there you have it, folks.  If you are looking for a beautifully built sim, with wonderful events, adult entertainment options, and the most gracious hosts on the Grid, let me encourage you to drop on by and check ‘em out.   You’ll be glad you did.  And if you run into Richh or Alexxxa….Tell ‘em Josh sent ya!

BE there.  Aloha!

A NEW slightly risky Second Life dating venue opens in September

 


Zen Metal WANTED is a new Second Life dating venue and online website opening on Friday, September 30th. The Grand Opening will kick off at 8 AM, and Tonia Thraw will activate the dating boards starting at 8 PM. There shall be fireworks! From the beginning of September, the extensive, thought-provoking profiles on https://ZenMetal.Club are open to being filled up, but they cannot be read by anyone but the profile owner until the Grand Opening. What is different about Zen Metal WANTED, in addition to the profile fields that are completely unique and copyright protected, is the dating game rules; you will go on one date on the Second Life grid without exchanging any contact information. If you both like each other and want to turn the date into a relationship, you will meet at your rendezvous point as specified in the profile of the younger avatar. "Zen Metal WANTED is a dating concept designed to enable those who are 'everybody's type,' like celebrities, to date around without the pressure to commit to the first avatar that swoops by them. It is not nice knowing you'll have to reject yet another nice person who likes you a ton and expects interest shown toward them to lead to a relationship," explains Tonia Thraw, the owner of Zen Metal Projects. "While much-loved people love others' company and hanging out, it may not mean they're willing to commit to that person. Nice people don't enjoy rejecting nice people... So I figured I'd make it a part of the game. A part of the risk factor for also those people who don't get rejected a lot. Maybe now they will be. I was actually thinking of naming the place 'Stood Up' for the humor value of it," Thraw laughs. The festivities will begin at 8 AM and end sometime after 8 PM on September 30th at Gowers, Gaeta V - Second Life mainland.

(Teleporter to the event will be found here... Once the event opens.) https://zenmetal.club/register - The Zen Metal Club online dating profile registration. For questions, contact ToniaThraw Resident.

Spotlight on King of Queens Production-Not just another venue on the grid.- SLE Reporting…



King of Queens Productions is an entertainment company that caters to everyone with a special addition to couples looking for a full-service dream wedding experience in Second Life.  Owned and operated by Juan Boucher; a 15+ year SL veteran.  Many might recognize him from a successful club he ran back in the day called African Pride. After a long hiatus, he returned and focused his attention on working closely with live singers, choreographers, and dancers where he was inspired to create (KoQ) King of Queens Productions. The SL Enquirer sat down with Jaun to learn more about this unique entertainment company and what you can expect from KoQ.




Interview with Jaun Boucher


SLE: Congratulations on winning a Spotlight Feature. Also, thank you for taking the time to sit with us while we find out more about Kings of Queen.


Jaun: Thank you for giving me this opportunity, I am very honored that you gave me this time to sit with you.


SLE: First off, tell me about Kings of Queen as in where did its conception come from. For example its mission statement and what your plans are with the company. 


Jaun: After working for a while in Second Life when I returned back after a break and mastered Second Life again, I created King of Queen Productions, seeing that there is always a need for expanding in Second Life, and to use my knowledge to give Second Live Residents the best memory to take with them every time they leave my venue.  Because Second Life is for making memories, and those memories need to be treasured.


SLE: Your venue seems to cover a lot of aspects of Second Life. Meaning building, design, and shopping to name a few. Are you looking to offer as much as you can to the Second Life residence?

Jaun: It sounds like a lot, but with good management and time planning it really is not a lot :). I am doing landscaping and little builds, then my events are only a few days a week, so I carefully plan each project which I take on together with those who are helping me in it.  I will not offer a service if I cannot give the end product :)


SLE: You have stated you are from South Africa and wanted to give the KoQ the same kind of feel as South Africa. Can you tell our readers how you have or plan to achieve that?



Jaun: Right, now you thinking Elephants, Lions and Rhinos most probably :).  South Africans are known also to be friendly and easygoing, and I think this is what I plan to do.  We love nature as well, which is why my areas involve nature in it, like my Country wedding style, which reminds me of a typical South African Farm style in the country, and my beach club area - reminds me of the South African Coast. I am trying to support also South African designers in 2nd Life, by promoting them where I can, as there is a very few South African designers in Second Life.

SLE: Along with the live music and shopping you have mentioned you have a large wedding venue with various themes. Can you tell our readers about that and how they can schedule their large wedding there?


Jaun: I have 2 wedding venues, the Greece Style - which is surrounded by the ocean - a very formal venue, and we can cater to a lot of guests.  We recently had a wedding in that area, and it was very successful.  Then we have the large Country/Farm style area, which gives you the typical Country feeling at your wedding.  We have a few other styles as well, so depending on each client's needs and wants we can adjust the venue to what you want on your special day.  We plan everything for you in your budget!  They can contact me in-world via NC, visit our inworld Wedding area, or via our Website : https://625d45b3b0042.site123.me/.  Being together with my Second Life Partner for 10 years and renewing our vows for 10 years recently, I know the importance to make your partner/wedding day as perfect as possible.

SLE: We loved that you stress the importance of the community working together as a whole and including everyone while celebrating diversity and treating everyone with respect.  Without giving too much information away, what kind of service do you offer to businesses who are looking to promote at your venue?


Jaun: Well, depending on the promotion which they will need the field of promotion is big, and there are a lot of options.  Sponsor one of our Live Events - if they decide to Sponsor one of our Live Singer events, then during that 1 hour, the venue will be branded with their logos around the event.  The host will do promotion in chats, and also when we post events the Sponsor's logo will be visible together with relevant Landmarks.

 

For Clothing designers - We can do a catwalk promotional event - showcasing your designs with Models or even with Live Singers!!  It's unbelievable how much promotion Live Singers can bring to a venue - and I'm a bit scared to mention it now on here, as someone might steal my idea :P

SLE: For entertainment bookings, who can Djs and musicians contact?


Jaun:  They can contact me inworld, or via our Website contact page :)


SLE: Are you hiring for any positions at KoQ Productions? If so, how can people apply?

Jaun: I am looking for hosts (preferably qualified and know how to work with Live Singer Performances), and also looking for an Assistant Manager to be my right hand.  But as we all know Second Life, finding loyal ones who are willing to start and build that trust. to walk a path with you is hard to find.  I'm not looking for someone who works for me...I want someone who works WITH me.  I don't believe in superiors in Second Life, as we all have the same goal when we once logged into Second Life the first time - to get to know people and have fun..and that is important to maintain.

SLE: Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?


Jaun:  I believe we all are creators in Second Life, whether you build something, take photos, visit and support venues/singers/DJs, shooting a movie, it doesn't matter, we all are creators of our Second Life, and the one needs the other to make your Second Life worthwhile.  It's like a huge circle.  KoQ is not there to be competition, KoQ is there to ADD to Second Life as each place has its own signature.
