Second Pride 15   Leave a comment

The 15th Second Pride Festival opened up on Friday, and will be running through June 23. This year’s festival has additional significance, as 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, considered by many historians the cornerstone point of the homosexual-rights movement.

You can find out the schedule of events at the festival Web site.

New Friend of the Fairelands

I was looking for a breakfast restaurant this morning, when my phone went off. The call was from Morgan instead of a robocall computer, so I answered; “Hey, newb, what’s happening?”

“You tell me,” Morgan said, sounding bewildered. “I was wandering around the commons up on your starbase, when a glowing blue ball popped up in front of me. It’s still here, sitting in front of me, and I can’t get away from it; it follows me around. Do you have something loose up here I need to worry about?”

This is going to be an exciting time for Berry.  We’ll miss her in the regular blogging trenches of Second Life, as I’ve already told her on her article; but I understand her feeling that, as an employee of the Lab now, she needs to put a firewall between roles.

As she notes in her article, please don’t contact her directly to solve any problems; that won’t work, and will load her down with unfulfillable requests.  File a normal ticket.  Be a nice avatar.

Sorry, we are closing! — Poulet Koenkamp

So, we get home late last night from a trip to Chicago, bringing home a cold that the husband says I started working on before I left for Chicago. Everyone else gets to bed, but I’m not asleep yet; so I log in to Second Life for the first time in a week, looking for a little relaxation.

Lots of Great Swag At New Uber!

The others have clued me into the promotion blogs, telling the goodies that are coming out for sale at the various creator events around Second Life. I just stumbled into this one today, and the pictures say this new round of Uber is going to be fantastic! There’s lots of goodies to drool over, including quite a few separates that you can try mixing/matching.

I don’t know if Harper wants to try all of us doing our choices from the selection available. But I’m already saving up the cash to buy some of this, and you’ll want to as well.

Fantasy Faire 2019: Builders of Hope

Fantasy Faire 2019

Can you hear it? The sound of sunrise, the colour of calling, the touch of melodies brushing over your skin. Faint rhythm of molten gold, beating like a heart somewhere in the distance, sparking purple with every hit. 

The Fairelands are waking. Waking and calling us home.

This year the Fairelands will stay in our realm from April 18th to May 5th. Yes, you read it right, eighteen days instead of eleven! The busy event program will last only the traditional eleven days, but the usual unofficial extra days are now official: you can shop, quest and explore the Fairelands to your heart’s content without wondering when they might fade.

We’re building hope in the Fairelands –  come join us.

More information in the Press Release.

9th Annual Oscar Fashion Photo Contest — And the Winners Are….

The field shook itself out fairly rapidly for this year’s Oscar Fashion Photo Contest.  As ever, thank you to all the entrants, and I hope you enjoyed the opportunity to show off your red-carpet chops.

The main difficulty this year was between First and Second Places.  It could easily have gone the other way, and almost did.  A fresh evaluation gave this order, however; and I’m pleased to welcome a new First Place winner this year.

So, with further non-ado, here’s this year’s placers ….
