erin68 and satin : cocoa beach music mansion

The week has been a whirlwind of activities in the virtual world of Second Life. The grid is alive with events and parties after a long summer of holidays.

We went to Cocoa Beach Music Mansion to just relax in the beautiful ballroom and listen to live singers, Satin Galli and Erin68 Frog.

With a nod to country, jazz and vocals, the duo sang romantic songs to a full sim of avis dressed in their finest ballroom attire.

Beautiful gowns twirled on the dark red carpet while the singers sang. Such a great way to spend a Sunday evening in the arms of my angel.

A new original ballet

Before there was Second Life, there were avatars...

This is a ballet based on the real story of the "Living Goddess", or Kumari Devi, who is worshipped in Nepal. Chosen as a child, she becomes a living goddess. What does this mean? Through ritual and tradition, she provides hope, peace, and serenity to her troubled people. What does it mean to all of our living gods and goddesses, our heroes and icons, our prophets and stars across the lands? All who flower, are idolized, and grow old or die replaced by a new one in a forever progression. What does it mean to be a living goddess? Join us as we honor Kumari, journey to the mystical mountains to see the battle of the gods, and participate in the joyous progression of the new living goddess. Choreography by Inarra Saarinen, music by Solary Clary.

Audience Comment:

["Living Goddess"] very much captures the emotion, which was unexpected and enjoyable; I am stunned in fact. I was unsure of how such a thing would work in SL. Well I had heard of ballets going on here; however admittedly had felt they would lack the authenticity. It's just such a lovely thing to enjoy with friends and wonderful to be able to experience in the comfort of your own home. You are doing an amazing job; its really beautiful and it really has the feeling of attending soemthing special. I'm sure it means so much to those who are lucky enough to find you.

Thank you Inarra Saarinen, Artistic Director of Ballet Pixelle for this post!

I needed a bit of a chill, so I took that tp to Virgil's Music Cafe to go hear Tone Uriza, the bluesman. He was strumming and picking that guitar and singing with that raspy voice of a seasoned blues singer.

Gawd, I love music. All of it. I can go from hardstyle trance to the 3-chord progression of the blues. There is nothing better than music to get the body moving, peeps... nothing!

After a hard crash, the Teknival sim came back alive. As each of us made our way back in, I noticed a shout had come in for dj Pan Tripsa at the Psytrance stage. Gotta goooooo!

Pan, the dark psy master was spinning and the place was live with his music. He started the set with brand new tunes never heard before until today.

Later, Barbs Kurka took the stage after another dj had crashed. Barbs kept the dark psy going as each of us kept dancing around the shrooms and colorful decorations.

I also went to the Foem stage where the entire stage was a beautiful sculpture of flowers. Sooooo pretty! I loved this stage the best with the giant flowers in a rainbow of colors.
