Calas Galahdon's A Christmas Poem

Here we go again, it's time for Ty Tenk and Truck's annual Christmas sim.  This is a sim new and experienced avatars won't want to miss for Christmas, especially if you enjoy a peaceful experience by yourself or with a close friend, including skating, hot air balloon ride, sleigh ride, dancing, completely amazing scenery and overall experience. This year includes some favorites from last year such as the classic Christmas pavilion etc, but they've added a super cool magical cave entrance.  This is a must see sim.  Huge thanks to them for continuing to make their Christmas sims for our enjoyment. My friend Cash and I checked it out and he and I took the pictures shown here. More pics in my Flickr as linked directly by clicking these images or their official Flickr group here:

FlyGearZ and Whymsee

Visit FlyGearZ here:


I received some group notice of a FlyGearZ dance duel of the huds event, so curiosity got the better of me and I popped over. I was pleasantly surprised to find a HUGE steampunk airship, Alice, filled with a bunch of ppl, mostly decked out in steampunk gear, on the cog dance spots.  After instructions and introductions we danced with the dance leaders Ki, Kiran Sporg and Jenna Dirval who led from the front stage.  The location was the FlyGearZ steampunk airship complete with many moving giant cogs and clock tower.  The event was the duel of the dance huds with full audience participation.  I grabbed some pics to show here, then cammed a little to also get a shot of WhymseeDancer Metaharper the dance bot that caches dances.  The sim is home to Whymsee and FlyGearz events and apparently various other explore areas to cuddle, play and experience according to the sim info.

The group states:
"FlyGearZ: What is FlyGearz? First and foremost, we are a group of like minded, carefree dance oriented, party peeps! What kinda of party peeps, you ask? Think of your self as a passenger on board the magical Danceship "Alice" where your in-flight entertainment is YOU; dancing like crazy!We promise the crew will take good care of you! As with any flight, seating is limited to 50 or so  prime "seats.""

Jenna gave me a some extra info. when I asked such as
-- the Facebook Whymsee link here: and FlyGearZ here:
-- frequency of events: Whymsee 3 weeks out of the momth  and FlyGearZ 1 time a month.
--owner name: Cordie, Cordelia.cerise whose been doing this for years, although Jenna more recently has been helping with PR and Whymsee and FlyGearZ  and FlyGearZ duel of the dance huds
-- and more of the event info. like the Whymsee theme and set is different every week with a big show once a month with big show set changes but the FlyGearZ stays steampunk and the airship stays in the air all the time.

"from here on there be dragons", by alpha Auer at Split Screen Installation Space

Visit Split Screen Installation Space, "from here on there be dragons" by Alpha Auer here:

This exhibit runs November 20th, 2016 through January 31, 2017

Split Screen owner and curator, Dividni Shostakovich, writes about this exhibit: "In a faintly futuristic building, golden dragons roam. Some are Chinese, others are European.  Their reflections shimmer beneath them. And on the floor these imaginary beasts walk upon are images from an old map. Come see "from here on there be dragons" by Alpha Auer, one of the most distinctive artists in Second Life. At Split Screen Installation Space until 31 January 2017."

That pretty well sums it up, although Alpha has a nice note card at the landing about her exhibit and I'll quote but a small excerpt here: "When Medieval and Renaissance map makers got to the edge of the world, they used to write "beyond this place there be dragons," meaning dangerous or unexplored territories that sailors should beware of before attempting to cross into them."

 The surrounding build is done in recognizable Alpha style, colors, and reflections.  The golden dragons are detailed creatures congregating about the interior of the structure. Some are holding large pearls or balls and almost seem to be playing a game or greeting one another, although seem to be of various breeds or styles.   There is also a cool free avatar/costume by Alpha at the landing so be sure to grab that too on your way in or out. As always, Split Screen hosts talented artist and Alpha has done a great job here. I mostly used the designated sim windlights for the below pics but as you can see I changed it up once and the first small pic I didn't take, as that's the official sim ad..

Telrunya Winter Wonderland

Visit  Telrunay Winter Wonderland here:

This is a beautiful peaceful sim to explore.

The sim info. reads: "Welcome to a new chapter of the Telrunya sims, a truly magical Winter Wonderland in its captivating and unique beauty. A gorgeous landscape where time stands still, especially made for you... to just be."

The sim owner/designer, Nessa Zamora's profile states: "My goal with these sims is to offer these places of peace and tranquility to everyone who needs it, for their own reasons. To be yourself, no matter what color, gender, religion, sexual orientation, looks, illnesses... Here you can be you, just as you are. Welcome."

This is exactly what I felt and saw.. serenity and peace. This snowy wintry land has plenty of serene places to rest, skating, dancing, and exploring.

I noticed this sim is on the SL Destination guide and then I noted Inara Pey already blogged this sim  with a lovely description that really captures it so rather than repeat everything everyone has said, I'd direct you to her post here:

For some beautiful pictures check these out:

Liam Wahwah Wakeman

The music management group of Whispering Sands Live Promotions does a great job promoting many SL musicians, both those they manage and others, and I've blogged them and their musicians, events, specials, etc many times, but while I've also blogged their Sunday evening open mic nights before, I want to say a little more.  They really do a fantastic job of offering opportunities for new and up and coming musicians to try out their skills with a few songs at their open mic nights Sundays from 7-9pm SLT here: Whispering Sands Promotions AND Jagged Edge Music Venue, Sunset Cove (42, 204, 29)  Their mgt blog for info on musicians, booking, promotions is here:
P.S. their sim landscaping is beautiful too.

Tonight they had a great lineup of new singers and seasoned pros making for a great time.  Approx 45 visitors attended.  I decided to blog them again because this time they had a couple of singers I was not previously familiar with.  One was Liam Wahwah Wakeman.  His partner and manager Anashara Dubois told me he plans to start singing regularly in SL in a couple of weeks.  This will be a treat for us all if his performance tonight is any example of what he has to offer.  First of all he has a wonderful smooth beautiful voice but his guitar playing blew my mind. He also managed to perform 3 diff genre in his 3 song selections.  It was at this point in the evening I was chatting briefly with WSLP owner/mgr Jorr that SL truly has some impressive professional talent.  I snapped a couple of pics of Liam as I do believe he will become very popular in SL fast. And Yay, I sorta have a blog scoop on him here now.  Anyway .. you won't want to miss him.  Remember his name, Liam Wahwah Wakeman. I hope to hear a lot more of him soon.
