You Never Know Where

You never know where a door will lead. In the Paradise there is a mysterious door set in stone.

Mysterious Door

Opening the door, the entry way has an ominous feel with it bright lights. Still, it is captivating, so let’s enter in and see where it will go.

Walk Into The Light

We end up at the NVhe countryside. Peaceful, sweet feeling countryside. There are little meeroos running about the door. Possibly they know a few things?!?

The Countryside of NVHE

These doors work only if you are in the associated group. If you need an invitation, send me a message. Residents of NVhe already are part of the group, so go on over to Paradise, enjoy the ocean water, the sea side breeze and the fun dances waiting for you. Find the secret underwater cave, done your merwear and swim about to your hearts content.

A Sneaky Moment

Not to long ago, IEVL was standing in his building on his parcel that neighbors mine.  I popped over for a quick visit to discover he was away from the keyboard playing that real life game.  Honestly, it can be so addicting!

I grabbed a few pictures while he was gone.  I now see how short I really am by Second Life standards.  We were overlooking my parcel.  I have to say, I do like the view.  When he came back, I let him know I snuck a couple of snaps.

Enter Trouble at Lush

This past week, my sister Zadi wanted to talk to me.  We do not get to talk very often because our online hours are different.  Typically, my online hours from my virtual family is this way.  They are on in the day and I am typically on late in the evening, if at all.

Anyway, the two of us were chit chatting and it can be rest assured that when this happens, we are up to something.  That something I can’t discuss because a squirrel took it and secreted it away.  😛

As I studied for one of my real life law exams, Zadi gave me momentary measures of breaks from studying.  She teleported me to a club that she was hanging at named Lush.  Lush plays pretty much standard club music. Predominately pop dance music.  It is an okay club.  Not my style or taste, but we all know that I am biased towards the styling of the various types of Rock found at !Exodus!, as well as the people.  Every club has their following.

For me the downside to Lush is actually the things that are common in most virtual clubs.  You have the DJ, the Host or Hostess and a set of dancers.  All of which expect tips.  Honestly, I don’t want to listen to the emotes or watch a dancer dance, strip or entice.  Its plainly boring.  I rather the intimate teasing, jokes and conversations of the patron.  Someone emoting through the conversation is distracting and disruptive.  Really, my feeling is go to strip down club for that.  Don’t combine the two.  Blah!  Then you have the only true conversation going on being the dancers and the Hostess or Host spamming you with emotes or who you should tip at this great club – rawr!

Meh – I am just not into it.  It’s not my style.  I know others love it and that is great.  The club is not empty, does have active patrons and it looks all pink and dangerous.

Nevertheless, Zadi and I did our scheming, planning and overall enjoyed our time together.  I am going to drag her over to !Exodus! to show her how the Rockers do it and why we do it better.

Learning at SOMA; Rocking at !Exodus!

Its been a little while since I posted.  Honestly, real life has a way of stealing time from me.  Curious about that, check out the real life stuff over here.  Onto virtual living….

Since I was home sick and was mostly in a coma, my activities were limited to a television, an audio book, my music or a brief moment virtual world hopping.  My choice of the day was a class at the SOMA School of Design.  Visit their website here.  They hold some classes in world and sell classes that you can view through a special hud they have created.  The New Student Starter Package comes with the hud, which has 19 classes for you to view on your own time in world.  You can get that here.

Anyway, I popped into one of the classes on working with 3D objects in CS4.  The class was for both CS4 and CS5.  It comes in parts. I was only able to catch the first part.  Usually the classes happen during the day when I am at work.  But this is why I love this school.  I can do classes at my own pace as long as I have the class in my hud.  Eventually, I will go pickup the other parts.  I love being able to learn new things.  Especially things that can be used in multiple realities.

Upon landing, I rezzed a bit and then grabbed a seat.  This girl grabbed the same seat as I did and ended up sitting on my lap.  She sent me an IM saying “This is my seat.”  Problem is, she never looked to see that she was sitting on the edge of the seat.  I was in the center, which shows I was there first.

She had to stand up to resit herself after I moved.  Why did I move?  I have the flu and I really did not feel like giving someone that has been in world a while a lesson on politeness.  She is attached to that seat – meh – she can have it.  I was there to learn, not to fight.  So here is me concentrating on the lesson at hand.

 

The teacher was Katya Koolhaas.  She is patient, informative and knows her topic.  If you want to earnestly learn, skip the shortcuts and work through these huds.  There is an immense amount of information here.  You can find her at SOMA or in the virtual world of Second Life(R) and you can ask her any questions regarding SOMA.

Last week or maybe the week before, I loose track, I was back at my favorite club,!Exodus!.  It was a blast.  They never disappoint me.  I stop in randomly and I have to say, they are extremely consistent.  The DJ for the session was personable.  He paid attention to the chat while spinning tunes. Then he integrated aspects of the chat into his DJ set.  Not to much talk, and not to quiet, it was a fun set.  He even sang the TIGER song to us.  LOL!

The DJ did some quick avie changes, from the human to Tiger to Spongebob to a toaster.  His special love also had done some changing…she had a Miss Piggy and she did the toaster as well.  I grabbed some toaster snaps.  You will never see two toasters dancing together in real life, but you might in a virtual world.  Check it out ~ Dancing Toasters!!!

The Club!!! ~ !Exodus!

I wanted to share my favorite club within the virtual world of Second Life(R).  I am a rather shy person and its difficult to meet new people.  It truly is something that I struggle with.  Friendships come hard for me.

There is a club named !Exodus! that I am in love with!!  The DJ’s are a lot of fun.  The Hosts & Hostesses know how to keep just the right amount of conversation going.  I have yet to show up without someone greeting me.  Even the patrons greet people as they come and say bye as they go.

People are really there.  As in present.  They have not walked away in some kind of afk zone.  They are socializing, chatting away and dancing.  They respond to what the DJ is saying and to one another.  And they have events regularly.  Even during the hours that I am able to get there.

I have gone from club to club to club only to find lots of avatars dancing, but absolutely no communication going on.  O.o  Or …… barely anyone there and either some chatting or lots of gestures.  In  either case, its boring.  If I go to the club, first its the music I want to hear.  Second, I want to share the experience with someone.  I can stay on my own parcel and play music if I want to listen to it alone.  These factors are important and more important then how many blingy objects or how fancy the place may be.

I love my music and love music of all genres.  !Exodus! seemingly plays rock of various types.  Its fun, its awesome and its great.  I am in love love with this club.  If you want to check it out, use this link and tell them Neoma sent you.

Ahhh and here is a pic or two from the very club.
