A few weeks ago I was at dancing at the Sable when the Florence the manager was kind of enough to encourage me to stay to listen to the singer that was just about to get on stage. It would be an understatement to say that I was captivated after only moments of hearing Xara Fiaso cover of Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good”.

Wow, I thought, this woman can really do amazing things while making a song her own! I knew, I had to bring her to the Basilique and share her with my friends.

So, join us for a very special event with exciting singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Xara Fiasco performing live from Lismore, Australia just for you!

Day: Monday, October 10
Time: 4PM SLT
Dress: Your smartest semi-formal

And here is a sample of her amazing work!

You’re never too old to trick or treat

Just re-read this post from last year with some friends on this Halloween, and thought it be nice to repost. It’s all about what Halloween was like for me as a kid, I hope you enjoy it :)

Save that terribly dark and rainy night that a big kid stole my Jack-o-Lantern candy bucket, Halloween was a terrifically exciting time as a child. I’d forgotten how fun it actually could be and had a somewhat condescending view of this very weird, very-North American ritual that most Europeans only know from movies and Second Life. Then I got a chance to go trick or treating all over again at Havenhollow, and oh, how fun it all was!

Just the very idea of getting costumed up and going fearlessly into the neighbourhood after dark was so electrifying; the candy we were so excited about collecting a few hours before, became scarcely more than an afterthought when the night was over and it was time to put our exhausted bodies to…

Last chance to see Paradise Lost in Second Life

There are only tickets available for two more performances of Paradise Lost in Second Life:

There are no more performances planned, so if you’re going to take part in this very, very special Second Life event, this is your last chance. If you’ve already been and loved it, then please tell your friends to get tickets ASAP.

Saying goodbye to all manner of things

Becky:

Lovely pictures and a surprisingly germane song to pair them with. Thanks for the visit, Ella <3

August bank holiday weekend (and labor day) is always full of bittersweet feelings for me. Summer is almost over. This summer is ending rather abruptly in the UK with the weather plunging almost overnight in the last couple weeks.

I thought I would kick-off the almost-beginning of autumn with a wee retrospective of some of my favourite summer fashions from 2014  (baby’s first summer in SL!) all set to the soundtrack of the song Michigan by the Milk Carton Kids, which I’ve been obsessed with much of this summer. So hit play on the video before viewing the fashions below… and keep your hands where I can see ‘em. It’s time to say goodbye.

Today, I headed over to the Basilique Sim which has been my most regular haunt in the short time I’ve been in Second Life to date. This is still one of my favourite Sims with a picture perfect scene…

A huge thank you to bloggers and the SL media from the producers of Paradise Lost

Season 2 of Paradise Lost in Second Life is now well underway with a very enjoyable sell-out performance presented last weekend. We’re still getting fantastic reviews. The show is clearly continuing to surprise and delight nearly everyone fortunate enough to get a chance to watch it.

Paradise Lost in Second Life is no longer new, so it’s unlikely to gather the same kind of attention we received during the first season from bloggers and SL media. This makes getting the word out more of a challenge. Which brings me to the point of this blog post.

I’d like to thank you, bloggers and SL media, for sharing 80+ articles (see below for a full list) mentioning Paradise Lost to date. Your support has blown me away. Many, many people who first learn about the show, learn about it through your posts on your blogs and social media!

Still, there are still so many people out there in Second Life who have never heard about this show – and would be delighted to know about it – which is exactly where you can help spread the word.

What’s the best way to spread it? I’ve found one of the best tasters of our work is our appearance on the DraxFiles World Makers Series – Episode 18. Just this one video and a link to the marketplace where tickets can be found, is usually enough to inspire people to recognise that what we’re doing is worth seeing for themselves. It’s got it all – great behind the scenes footage, background information on how we made it, scenes from the show, and real life footage of the producers, of which I’m one. Here it is, if you’ve not yet seen it yourself.

So, I’d like to remind you, that we’re now performing Season 2 of this ground-breaking production - we have 9 shows left for which tickets are available on the MarketPlace. If you’ve not yet spread the word about Season 2 already, please help us out so more people can have an opportunity to be once again blown away by what they never thought was possible in Second Life.

And here, are all your posts… Thank you again! (and thanks to Caitlin Tobias for the photo above)
