It was Seany1235 Blinker's birthday yesterday and we all had a great time down at his Club Underground with dj Troy spinning some terrific tunes! The theme was cream and coffee, but it soon changed to banana splits and hamburgers as people donned 'food' avatars and outfits! Seany, well known for his love of kebabs, enjoyed every minute of it as he shape-shifted into a cute little cupcake with big boots! Hibiscus and I both took lots of pictures and it was a party to remember! Happy Birthday Seany!!
Happy Birthday to our very own best mate Ed Follet!! It was Ed's birthday yesterday and there was a surprise party for him at the HangOut Club. Ed must have been suspicious because he had a nice new silk shirt on and looked ready for a fun SL party! And it was loads of fun!! dj and club owner Janis Short played some amazing music and everyone really enjoyed the evening! Many Happy Returns of the Day Ed, hope you had a fantastic time!
I had this notice from one of my groups today and basically this is very important, it affects anyone who uses the internet and considers that they have a right to privacy in respect of emails and other means of communication:
"NO SL & no use of any internet accessing item for 24 hrs. April 22 Online ‘Blackout’ to Protest Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA), This act will eliminate any Privacy protection offered by Google, Microsoft or any corporation. The gov. will tap ALL, know ALL . As philosophers this is our chance to ACT for a cause. I ask for your support.. No philosopher holding their internet life dear be on tomorrow. Hugs... of course you are free to choose."
If you care about keeping your life private and do not want any snooping on the internet, then join the protest and stay off of the internet altogether from midnight tonight for 24 hours. It's hard, we are all so used to talking to our friends around the world in SL and by email and other sources, but the choice is yours. I'll be watching the tv instead; Yikes! I never usually switch it on!
I’ve started to explore SL a little again, so I went over to Kat Kassner and Laredo Lowtide’s fabulous New London Village this morning for a catch up. I've always been inspired by Kat and Laredo’s amazing quality and detail they put into their building work in the London sim. Kat and Laredo have made a few changes since my last visit; The London Village looks even more awesome than it did before, and believe me it was fantastic then! You can now do archery and sword fighting there, they have a special group you can join; there is a distinct feel of history about the sim now, some medieval features which fit nicely into the present day architecture; in fact, just like the real London Town. I found a giant horn you can blow near the archery information spot, so I gave it a go! I quickly stopped when I realised this is probably so loud it would call all the people in the sim over. Luckily I was visiting very early in the morning when only a few early risers were there! The London Village seems to have more expanses of green fields than it used to have, and there's a hill which overlooks the London Village, just like Greenwich Park. There’s a great tavern called The Guy Fawkes Inn near the Tower of London and Trafalgar square, moved to a new location, has a life-like Nelson’s Column with the Admiral Lord Nelson peering out over the capital landscape. There’s always plenty going on in this brilliant sim, the Doctor Who theme adds to the magic of it all and the night-life is very popular. The London Village is a favourite with so many people, you will never find it empty, the regulars and visitors feel at home there. It‘s all thanks to Kat and Laredo’s hard work at keeping The New London Village one of the most vibrant meeting places in SL.
Some say you can never be too rich or too thin, but for Truths Marder you can never have too many Rez Days! Truths turned 5 on April 6 and an informal celebration was held on that day. The lovely TXBarbara Bailey dj'd at The HangOut and a great time was had by all.
But then on April 8 another party was held, a surprise party, this time with a salute to the New York World's Fair of 1964 as the theme.
The HangOut was decorated with memorabilia of the time and dj and club owner Janis Short played music of the era. The club was packed with Truths' and partner Nahiram Vaniva's many many friends, dancing, chatting and playing trivia.
It was a time of memories and also of looking forward to many many more happy rez days and other celebrations amongst friends. Does this mean that Truths is actually 6 now? No wonder Truths kept fainting!Happy Rez Day Truths!
There were big celebrations last night at the HangOut Club, it was club owner/dj Janis Short's birthday and she had made the club into a beautiful fairyland for a fantastic party. The theme was' wings' and people wore some wonderful outfits. It was a lovely touch of Spring away from the real life cold weather. We all had a brilliant time. Happy Birthday Janis!!!!
