Avante Garde LEA8 2014

Visit here:
See more info. here:
music by: Avantegarde, "Again"
Sunday the 27th of April at 1pm second life time, a collaborative Second Life work, The Russian Avante- Garde, opens in LEA8.  The virtual world exhibition is featured on four interactive viewing stations within the Museum and was created by Alpha Auer (Turkey), Bryn Oh (Canada), Caer Balogh (USA), Eupalinos Ugajin (France), Jo Ellsmere (USA), Nessuno Myoo (Italy) and Soror Nishi (UK). This is all part of a bigger RL exhibit held in the main exhibition hall of Moscow’s Manege Museum.  Tomorrow the SL exhibit is opening and will be streamed live and included in the RL exhibit thanks to Peter Greenaway (UK) and Saskia Boddeke/Rose Borchovski (Holland) and supported by the British Council.

The whole area is very interesting and I posted many pictures a short time ago on this blog if you care to scroll back, but at this time I will focus on the Coppelian  bots by Jo Ellsmere, and made a little video recording of their movements.  I am quite mesmerized by them.  But go see the immersive exhibit before watching this video, as the exhibit is so impressive life-size and in person, well, virtual person : )  Enjoy!

I have been meaning to do a little thing with this song for a while and my good friend Kathy Nikolaidis' birthday was a great reason to get me going on it.  Plus it works well for Strawberry Singh's Monday meme today about poses in SL.  I'll write more later.  Anyway.. Happy Birthday Kathy!

Addendum... ok, so Berry's last Monday meme was a post about SL poses and fav poses and pose shops in SL.  See here post here:

I have so many poses and animations and I'm horrible about organizing them, so it's even hard for me to find the one I wanted as needed sometimes, but here is a shot list of some of my fav pose shops, keeping in mind that I love individual poses from a wider variety of shops.  I think I probably have some from almost any pose store in SL and it just depends on the individual pose. 
* Purple Poses (great variety and inexpensive)
*Exposeur Poses & Animations (really like their couples poses, but they also have a good variety)
*Essential Soul (love their large group poses)
*Del May (unique poses)
*oOo Studio Poses (great couples poses and others pretty unique)
*I also have and use a great many PNP poses
*Kabuki has some great poses and fun props like my snake or bike
*Diesel Works
*Chanimations has fantastic props/poses

There are just Soooo many great pose places, I can't list them all. I'm a poser for sure.

So her meme was in conjunction with the pose fair by Humanoid that has tons of great poses by a large variety of pose makers.  I did take some pics when I visited.  Visit here:

Happy Easter

Visit here:

Rev. Bret (Babailey) Resident leads the congregation in a really good service at God's House of Prayer in Second Life.  My sis Lexi tp'd me in before RL church a few weeks back and we sat through a Christian church service that was pretty typical of a RL service.  They have a beautiful church, Christian gallery, freebie area, and nice park. 

Visit their web site here: for a schedule of services including Easter Sunday.  

When we visited I noted, Pastor Brett's profile states: "I was a Pastor in the United Methodist Church for 15 years.  I am currently attending and am active in a Full Gospel church.  I have been a Christian since the age of 22." He gave a dynamic sermon that day and I'm sure there will be something to offer over at House of Prayer for Easter Sunday, so if you can't make church RL, try it out in SL.

  Their web site says, "The House of Prayer is a Christian church in Second Life®, a virtual reality. House of Prayer is a church where Christ is the head. We are a Bible believing fellowship of Christians who not only worship but serve our Lord in all ways. House of Prayer is place for individuals from all walks of life to come in and praise the lord in their own manner.  The church is accessible 24/7 and provides a safe haven for those that need to escape and spend some quiet time with God. House of Prayer is provided as a FREE place to be for those who wish to worship, fellowship, pray together!"

"And very early in the morning, the first day of the week, they came unto the sepulcher at the rising of the sun. And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulcher And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great. And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted. And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him. But go your way, tell his disciples and Peter that he goeth before you into Galilee: there shall ye see him, as he said unto you. (Mark 16:2-7)" The Bible

Flat Ebbe Linden Meme

Ebbe Linden_001
Since I work full time and have a busy RL I have not been able to successfully stalk Ebbe Linden like so many others apparently have. I must say I'm jealous of all the other groupies who chased him down lately according to Strawberry Singh's blog-see here:  But good for them really and out of the deal there are more photos that prove this new Linden Lab CEO really is out mingling with the rest of us.  It also made for a great meme for Berry to do this week.  She made a flat Ebbe for us to take out.  I took him to The Station sim which you can visit here: and where there is currently a fun Easter egg hunt for L$ and fun prizes going on and there will be a cool Steampunk art exhibit soon.  The Steampunk style sim, by expert scripter and builder Enigmatic Deir, is loaded with tons of fun things to do and see, many rides, a couple of clubs, rooms for rent, a couple of theaters that can be booked for free use or sit and watch movies for free any time, and so much more.  I can only dream the RL Ebbe will read this blog post and want to come visit the sim and I might see him. 

Anyway, Berry's blog meme goes like this: "Meme instructions: Pick up a copy of Flat Ebbe Linden from my marketplace store for free and take him to one of your favorite places on the grid. Also, share at least three things that you’d like to tell Ebbe."

*Like Berry I would say # 1 is to work on the SL reputation.  I've said this before in Hamlet's New World Notes blog when Ebbe first took the CEO job.  A little positive PR would go a long way in helping people realize there is so so much going on in SL and it's not all about "interactive porn".

*I'm still hoping for a great SL official viewer that I like.  Yes, I use Firestorm and at this rate I probably always will.  It's just way easier for me and has some features I like. 

*I'd probably waste my 3rd request/comment asking for a photo with him.  Yeah yeah, I know it's like 3 wishes and that would be wasting one on myself right? Well the meme said to share 3 things you'd like to tell him and one of Berry's was to tell him she appreciates his interactions with residents and tweets.  This is sort of like that, right?  : )  Only in a selfish sort of way I guess. O well, it's my meme response, go make your own.  Inquiring minds want to know.

I really enjoy Berry's Monday memes and this is yet another I was excited to do the minute I read it.  She did flat Rodvik in the past and he and I had a great date that I previously blogged.  Just use the search bar if you are interested.

Easter Egg Hunt for L$ and Prizes at The Station Now!

Visit here:

Easter egg hunt.jpg
Welcome to The Station Easter Egg Hunt!  The hunt runs Tuesday through Saturday April 19th.  You will be searching for two types of eggs.  The golden eggs hold L$ and the multi-colored eggs have gifts inside.  Search the entire sim, ground level Dead City, sky level, The Floating City, and the many hidden areas around the sim to find thousands of Lindens worth of L$ and prizes, some small and some large.   The larger prizes may be harder to find, so enjoy exploring while hunting and have a great time.   Please join Miri's club group if you'd like to stay apprised of sim events.  Note: The ground level has some private residences and there will be no hidden eggs in these locations.  Please do not enter private rented residences.  The rooms that are NOT rented you may enter and search for hidden eggs. You can ride the human sling shot to get to the ground level and you can reach the sky level by taking a balloon ride up or enter the ground level fun house to teleport.  There are many hidden places in this sim.   If you have any questions please contact Kara Trapdoor, Enigmatic Deir or other sim staff if you see them around.  If an egg is not working properly, is emptied out, or there are other issues we apologize but this hunt is just for fun and no extra reimbursements will be made.  There are a lot of gifts and Lindens to find.   Thanks for visiting the sim and have fun!
