It was a bitter-sweet experience, the party at the Underground Club was to mark the final day for much loved couple Brie Janick and Seany1234 Blinker who were leaving the London team. They had decided on a ‘wackiest outfit’ theme for the night and people turned up in mind boggling outfits to join in the fun. Seany dj’d as Brie played host to a very crowded and rowdy club. The atmosphere was absolutely electric as Seany played his last set in the UGC. The sim came close to collapsing a few times with people crashing and coming back for more!! It was ironic that it was a party to beat all parties, everyone had a mission, and that was to show Brie and Seany that they will be deeply missed! Also people wanted to show that everyone was united in their friendship of this great couple.
You could hear that Seany was near to tears as it approached midnight when he was to play his final song, and we all felt choked with him. Suddenly Brie called all the club team to the stage, I would imagine it was the first time ever that the stage has been invaded by so many people, and it was very touching as these people are a real family to each other, working and playing together since Virtual London began.
Brie had sent out a message to the club saying “Hey everyone... me and Seany wanted to say thank you for all your hard work. It’s time for me and Seany to move on. It's been a pleasure working with you all these past months. It’s an end of an era after 2 years here. We are still on SL. We wish everyone the best and all good luck.”
As Seany finished his set Brie announced that everyone should go out into the street, people beat the lag by struggling into the road to see what it was all about. Then it happened! Bit by bit the club came apart, the famous UGC was tumbling and soon there was just water and a few bits of abandoned equipment. The club sign hung like a ghost in the air as people stood thinking this was a fitting end as the club will never be the same again to the regulars there.
I would like to thank Brie and Seany for the wonderful times they have given us and for all the hard work they have put in over the years. They did it because they loved Virtual London and this article is to let them know that the people of Virtual London love them!
