Spotlight on ll ƜIƝƬƐɌ ll (11winter11)- An acoustic rock star with a voice that melts snow - Lanai Jarrico Reporting…


Winter, unlike the season, brings warmth, passion, and a vibrant personality full of humor to SL's live music environment.  He performs professionally in Real Life in countries all over Europe; Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Bulgaria, Romania, Cyprus, Serbia, and Hungary.

This powerful songwriter/performer performs a high energy, rock, blues rock and classic rock guitar show covering tunes from Elvis and the Beetles to Bon Jovi, White Snake, Aerosmith, Gun and Roses all the way to Metallica!

A home atmosphere filled with music encouraged him to begin playing the piano at seven and then he picked up the acoustic and electric guitar at the age of twelve. He had his first professional concert in 1998 and since then has performed for audiences as large as 15-20 K! 
As a songwriter/performer he says, "The emotion is what the song and the story behind it is what represents me and to those that listen."

With Winter, you can be sure that you will only get a real live performance. There is no pre-recorded playback. You get all the little variances of his "in the moment" showing, as he radiates out to each of you that request his interpretation, the finest music in SL.  Yes, my friend, WINTER IS HERE!

Interview with Winter

Lanai: Hi Winter, It is a pleasure getting the opportunity to chat with you. I’ve been hearing your name around the grid. You seem to be creating a buzz. Where are you from and what is your history with music?

Winter: Hello Lanai! nice to meet you, and thank you for your kind words! I am from Cyprus. My History with music started when I was 6 years old, as I began learning the piano, at 15 I picked my first Guitar and created my first Band. I Have been doing that ever since! :)

Lanai:  What does music mean to you and which person or people inspired you the most?

Winter: Music is my life. It keeps me sane... the first bands that inspired me the most, were bands like Metallica, Iron Maiden, Manowar and Megadeth.

Lanai: How did you discover Second Life and what were your first thoughts?

Winter: I first Entered Second Life in 2011 where I was in for only 6 months, on another Account. I deleted that account and after a 7 Year absence, I came back 2 years ago on Halloween :)

Lanai: Who helped you get started in your SL music career?

WInter: Dj Flames, Arisha, helped me get started and explained the basics. I used to sit around campfires and play songs for friends on voice. I really didn't know there was a live scene.

Lanai: Now that you have been performing in SL for the past 2 years, do you consider SL a game or an extension of your real life?

Winter: I consider SL a little bit of Everything! And a part of my RL! :)

Lanai: Every artist has something uniquely different from the other. How would you describe your style and genre?

Winter: My style and genre is Rock and Hard Rock,with a little Blues inside sometimes played with an acoustic Guitar. there are no effects (other than a little reverb), no playbacks, no Loopers or anything like that. I try to change a lot of songs to fit my style and way of playing. A lot of people call it 'Winterify' :))))

Lanai: What Genres of music do you personally listen to and which ones do you like to perform?

Winter: My Main Love is Heavy Metal and Classic Rock. I love to also listen to more toned down rock and Blues stuff. To me the most important part is Catchyness and Melody. This is also the style that I play in SL.

Lanai: What fulfillment do you get performing in Second Life compared to performing in front of a live audience?
Winter: It is VERY different. The coolest part of it, is that you get to play in front of People from ALL over the world at the same time. People who might not have ever heard you in RL. Another Cool thing is the friends that you make throughout the journey!
Lanai: Do you also perform in real life? With the pandemic how has that impacted you?
Winter: Yes I do perform in RL. I am the singer in Rock/Metal Band . Our 6th Album was just released 2 months ago and we have not been able to tour it or even get to perform some of the songs. I can't wait to perform for people again. The Buzz you get from the crowd and the reactions, when you see someone is VERY different, and emotions run high.
Lanai: You are a very talented artist. It shows in the crowds you draw in SL. What advice would you give others who want to perform and find success in SL?
Winter: My BIGGEST advice is Stay grounded and true to yourself and the people who come to watch you. Don't try to ride the high horse cause people are not stupid. Stay Humble and appreciative.
Lanai: What is your availability and how can venues book you for a performance?
Winter: Unfortunately the time zones are sometimes a disadvantage. I am on European Time. I can play anywhere between 9AM and 3PM SLT

Lanai: Is there anything else you would like to share with our reader?

Winter: I just want to say a BIG thank you to ALL the people who support me. I really appreciate them and all the fun and memories we create every day! Cheers and thank you!

Thank you Lanai for this interview.

Those who love and follow the trends of fashion consider winter the most glamorous of the year. It is during this time of the year that coats, beanies, gloves and boots come out of the inventory to accessorize.

Just as in the Autumn, furs are going to dominant the look of winter. You will find this trend in full pieces, such as jackets and vests, as well as detailed fur shoes and handbags.

 Silver and gold is one of the biggest trends this season. These metallics are perfect for  brightening up the sober looks of the season. Long coats, bodies, boots, skirts, etc. It definietly brinsg on the bling with the application of lurex and sequins.

 Coats are a must to combat the cold.  It you don’t want all the padding and bulk, a nice knit sweater works too!  arrive at parties in the cropped and maxi models, showing that the classical trend of the season can also be refined. In addition to these items, dresses and knit skirts are also great choices for that warm and cozy look.

Other trends that are popular this season are stripes and plaid. Those patterns will continue to be featured in winter.  If you like this style. You will find skirts, blouses, pants and dresses to add to your wardrobe.

The total black look can be sleek, sexy and worn in many occassions.  Accessories give all black that extra kick needed to create your own personal goth or classic look.
Take your gothic outfits out of the closet and use and abuse of the black color. Black is the main color in this trend!

It is very common for  avatars to be spotted with underwear showing.For example,  in the bars, clubs and adult hangouts where clothing is optional.  Believe it or not, lingerie is trendy any time of year. We're going to see sensual laces and bras made to be displayed. From the vintage and classic to the contemporary- Silk, satin , lace and velvet in pajamas, robes, tops and kimonos. A nice pair of heels for the ladies or some body art for the men, really add to the sexiness.

 Hats are a trend in the winter fashion and they are part of the favorite accessories of several men and women. It can be a tricky accessory for woman when using hairstyle that seem to poke through the seems.  What better excuse is there to shop for hair that works with a hat!

As we go deeper in winter it is that time where we have to make sure we not only look fashionable but we keep warm as well.

What is included with your purchase is: 
- The Duster Coat (All 4 colors) in 5 different sizes. 
- The alpha layer
GioMEN Duster Coats are `rigged` so they will move along with your body's natural movement, will follow your avatar movement (to a certain extent) because they are "attached" to your avatar skeleton, they will bend with your avatar joints and stretch with height. You can modify them (only texture will work) after having dropped them to the ground or with open EDIT window, NOT while wearing them. You cannot reposition or resize the object. It will fit the way it fits no matter what. Modifying their size will have no effect on the worn rigged meshes, while worn they'll "revert" back to their original size.

The HUD that is delivered with your purchase helps you change the cardigans, shirts and scarves. All parts are interchangeable so feel free to make your own combinations. 
Priced at 380L a good price for a cardigan.

Happy Winter Shopping!

What do you wish for this Christmas?- Debby Sharma Reporting...

HO! HO! HO! Santa is in town filling your chimneys with Christmas wishes. Have you been good this year? Oh well, Santa loves all. He sees a child in every soul. As we grow up, we look up to Santa as a myth, but we must always cling to the hope that all will be good one day. Being Santa’s little helper, I went around asking everyone what you wish for, this Christmas. Here are a few wishes this year, 2014.

Ann Lako: I would wish for prosperity for all creators and designers in SL, for the griefers and scammers to once and for all be gone from SL so they can no longer plague the residents of our community, and most importantly that everyone be able to fulfil their hopes and dreams that brought them into SL.
Annie Melson: Hmmm..... well, since I don't separate SL and RL, my wishes would be the same. My wish this Christmas is for everyone to have happiness, friends, family, love, and health. It sounds trite anymore because so many people say it, but for me it is the absolutely truth. What I want for myself is for my husband to continue to be well and cancer free, and for my kids and myself to remain healthy and happy.
Bianca Xavorin: Going into the New Year I am letting go of the past and only taking the good with me. I am grateful for my partner Walter Gedenspire. I can only wish that we continue to grow as we have for the past two years. I wish all my friends and family everything their hearts desire, along with happiness, health and abundance.

Boris Twist: I had just awoken and with coffee in hand doing what I could to get dressed and out the door for a service gig at church, I read this delightful note very quickly. It was a question I thought I understood but with no time to think about it and respond. Since then a day had passed, wind storms covering California and Coastal Oregon had taken out the lights and power on our street all night to mid-morning. It was total black in every house on the street and I managed to get in bed with a flashlight and my cell phone. About 4AM in the morning I contacted Joseph Nussbaum of Second Life using his FB account, we had planned to meet on this morning to begin filming a new project. It was still dark in the neighbourhood with no progress outside or any work teams in the area from what little I could gander. I feared that power would be out much longer than expected. Joe is East coast and responded in the hour. By 7AM weary from the constant dark I managed to get up and dressed with the aid of my trusty flashlight realizing that without power to recharge anything I would be totally dead in the dark soon enough. Coffee and a warm place to sit were at the top of the list. Not a soul up and down the street had a light on as I slowly rode my bike to comfort but alas, the Starbucks shop had no sit down interior, just windows, drat! Spurred on by these events I went into super drive and wheeled over to the DMV to renew a license and back to the 102 where I managed to find and join the East Portland Recreational and Community Centre. Touring the halls amid Families, seniors, Meals on Wheels, Workouts, Zumba, and the Pool! It was almost noon now I hoped the time spent away from home was enough . . . by the time my bike pulled down my street I saw pretty much the same, but wait! A porch light! . . . and then another! Delighted my spirit renewed I took stock of confusion left by the darkness and made a good effort to right the messes. Debby asks “What do you wish for this Christmas in Second Life?” I wish not for myself but for all the wonderful members, residents, workers, administrators, artists, employers, builders, architects, scripters, lovers, singles, children, furries. Everyone! I wish you the best and may your days be rich and rewarding this coming year. For myself . . . after much thought . . . free land, free prims for life, of course!!
Cali Karsin: My name is Cali Karsin, and I am the Co-Publisher & Editor-in-Chief of Cultured The Magazine inside Second Life, and for Christmas, I wish the best for my staff, readers, family and friends, may they get all the love, family, food, and care they desire. I also wish to send my condolences and love/support to those who are not fortunate enough to be with loved ones/certain loved ones this year, may they be there in spirit. I wish to raise a lot of money for Toys For Tots this year, and I wish for good health on all of my family and friends. I wish for more smiling faces to be reading Cultured The Magazine. That is all. I am so fortunate for this spectacular year, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Calina Kestentine: Hmm good question! I think I'd love a gift card to Miamai, though, always a safe bet
Caoimhe Lionheart: At times, we all pour out our misery in Second Life, whether it’s sharing with someone the adversity’s of our daily real world lives, or the misery some choose to inflict on others inworld. I hope our misery's would be more the former than the latter, but hate is a way of life for some. So my Christmas wish for Second Life is that I wish that no more lives would be torn apart, whether it’s the person whose real life is intolerable or the intentional inflictor, the Internet troll. I hope time will heal both of their hearts, and that they each find a friend whose love will stay warm in their hearts their entire lives because life should be lived without a hurting soul. This year I wish Second Life to be used for the good, the enrichment it can bring to every one of our lives and that our thoughts of love out number hate in each of us.
Christian Carlsson: Oh, that was a difficult question. I am not the kind of person that thinks ahead that far... I have what I need and what I don't have, I usually am able to get so; I rarely think of what others can get me. A donation to any of the many charities that are around in SL around Christmas would be the nicest thing I can think of.

Dely Morgain Muse: less bad people

Kennice Morrison: I dunno haven't really thought about it. Okay a nove beautiful story ordinary house. She makes the best homes in sl but we never got round to getting one.
Lanai: My Christmas wish besides shoes (a girl can never have enough) is that all who observe the holidays is surrounded by love, peace and happiness. One of my greatest joys is to surround myself with positive people in both RL and SL. People who are selfless and do great things for the good of the real world and Second Life community. It is a gift that keeps giving all year round.
Pam Astonia: I would like to find a deserving newbie, and give her/him $L5000 and wish them a Merry Christmas. If it had to be something I would wish for, it would be 1500 more prims for my house. Lol!
Roman Godde: Hmm I really have everything I want in SL, Im happy where Sl has taken me, met my rl wife on sl, great friends family, notoriety for my blog and photography. So I think Ill take my wish and just tell Santa thank you, but next year I want a pony
Trin – Bubble Courtois: Hey Debbie !!! You know, I have no idea really... Nick has been away for a month so my main wish is just to have him back for Christmas, which I hopefully will. Wanted to have a big Christmas party for all our friends and family but ran out of prims to be able to decorate for it lol... Aside from that, and the obvious girly stuff like clothes, shoes and furniture, I don't think there is anything I specifically wish for, for Xmas lol. As long as I have my Nick with me and our son. I have everything I need.
Zahra Singh: Just in Second Life? I wish for more group space, more tattoo layers and more updates from Linden Lab regarding Second Life 2.0. I am excited to know when it will be released and what they will do with the current Second Life.
The same question was posted on my Facebook, here are the responses.

My wishes this Christmas was simply to have a Christmas tree with lots of presents. Thanks to friends and my employers, all came true by 22nd.of December, itself. On behalf of SL Enquirer, I wish everyone Merry Christmas!! May all your wishes come true, may your hearts be filled with hope and love forever.

ITS WINTER SPORTS SEASON - Glossom Resident Reporting…

The air smells like snow. Do you know that smell?  Waking up to a frosty morning, a cold, crisp day, the frost breath on our mouth, these are reminiscences of how this 7th natural wonder of the world smells like. Winter wears its beautiful white coat landscapingon every path and making Second Life even more beautiful.

The next few weeks are perfect for practicing Winter Sports. Thousands of Ski and Snowboard fans seek the best places to slide on the snow. With breathtaking scenery as a backdrop and with unique landscapes, winter sports provide so much fun and entertainment to children and grown-ups of all ages who enjoy the snow.

Winter sports are a fantastic way to experience nature. Some residents love the white flat surfaces, while others prefer to burst down the slope at high speed. The keywords here are snow, play and fun. From ice skating to skiing, building a snowman and challenging friends to a snowball fight, whatever the sport or activity, the opportunities are endless.

The SL Enquirer went around SL and found six wonderful trails for the best winter sports. Here are some reasons why you should not fear to adventure into the virtual snow.

Armadon East - "The Boom Winterland Wonderland"

Start your journey with a sleigh tour around the venue, revolutionize the sport of ice dancing with an original choreography; take a lift up to the mountain's peak where you can start exploring the site with a snowmobile, or test your bravery by snowboarding downhill at high speed. And after a well spent day in the snow, there is nothing more comforting than nice cup of hot chocolate.

 Holland Paradise - "Rib & Caycee's Winter Paradise"

Virtual Fishing, snowmobile rides, couples ice skating, carriage rides, horseback riding and sledding are some of the Winter Sports available in this beautiful venue. Here residents coexist with wildlife but no conflict has ever been reported.

Aero Pines Park - "Winter Festival at Aero Pines Park"

The famous Aero Pines Park is celebrating its 8th Annual Winter Festival. Among many other attractions, Winter Sports are a highlight on the calendar of events. Horse Sleighs, Sleds, Snowmobiles, Ice Skating on a beautiful Ice Rink and Cross Country Skiing are some of the offers on this multi-sim venue.

Grand Canyon North - "Lake Tahoe Ski Resort"

Grand Canyon plus Snow is equal to magic. Lake Tahoe Ski Resort offers a wide range of snow sports, like sledding, snowboarding, slalom skiing, snow tubing and snowmobile riding. On a beautiful setting, it inspires couples to romantic sportive adventures.

Landing point:

StarRiderII  - "Christmas and Winter Holiday Village - Ice Skating!"

At this typical Christmas Village you will find a beautiful frozen lake with all the facilities for ice skating. After a nice ride up on the ski lift you will reach the mountain slope where a wide open area is available for other sports like skiing and sledding. Fishing on ice holes is also available for those who prefer less active activities.


As you arrive at the Winter Ice Rock Festival venue your eyes will rest on magnificent mountains reachable by sky-rail and full of opportunities such as skiing and sledding.  At the mountain base, an ice skating rink awaits you, among so many other offers.

Landing point:

Grab your warmest clothes, depart on an adventure, climb snowy mountains and have a wonderful time.

Happy Holidays,
