Relay For Life. Wonderful cause and they encourage people to do something. You look at all these cool things you can do to raise money for charity. You're psyched and ready to get out there and think: I can do that.
No you can't.
If you're not an established presence, don't expect a good turnout. The hotshots are out in force with their friends and friends' friends too so your efforts and voice get smaller and smaller until you're a speck. The theory that having a regular event brings in more people is a myth; either you have it or you haven't. And nothing says camraderie like teams of friends' and acquaintances scheduling opposite. Consider towel thrown in. I'll be sticking with slots at existing festivals and faires. Except Halfway There Fair. Because I wasn't invited to that. Voiceless DJ, remember?
Thank you to those who attended Hearts & Souls' Friday events and had a good time with us.
Our weekly music event for RFL will conclude this Friday on location at the Starship Diner pier at the Fishiversary. I'll be playing a 90 minute set from 7pm SLT. Lots of Surf tunes!
On that note, it's 7Seas' 6th Fishiversary this coming weekend. I'm working on some new catchable Daleks as well as a new Dalek for RFL donation to accompany the perennial Purple Dalek (you saw it first with me in 2011). It will be good to see the Shikamis again. Their key builder Meissa Thorne has departed Second Life but I have a Flat Meissa coming along for the Starship Diner pier. Also expect many silly wearables debuting. I've got great neighbors, with WyVy on one side and Marianne & Pygar on the other. Toryn was my buddy request but her place is on the far end of the next sim! *arrgh*
I love my new Swing Club. Look for action each second Saturday. Sometimes it's friends, sometimes it's folks from the retro circuit, sometimes it's just me and Seven. We have fun regardless. You should come. You're missing great tunes. Usually from 6pm SLT.
St John is a nice place. I'm happy Miz Gabi made it. It's laid back and barely a hint of drama to be found. I randomly play an hour here and there on my stream when I feel like it. It's all about the European influence in the architecture, the Jazz, the heady scent of magnolia, and the low down, all existing in harmony. There's tea and cakes so come on by.
