The Tiger Turns Two

On this day two years ago he arose from the fiery bowel of hell this demon ..arising from the sulphur, fire and brimstone to blaze a molten hot trail through the electrromagnetic confines of Ssecond Life, broke free from the bonds of the electromagnetic cyberaethers, bringing forth .. mystery and intrique..what is the truth behind his denomic animal attraction …

OK, a little over the top maybe?  Well, some things call for a little flash and dash.

Today, 1 Sept, 2010, your friendly neighborhood tiger celebrates his 2nd rezday.

Some of my friends decided to throw a party for me.  So, come on down to the Empress tonight, starting at 6PM SLT we have two great LIVE shows.  Around 8PM  Miss Reghan Straaf will take over the stream and entertain us with her fabulously eclectic collection of musical selections.  I’ll have some pictures to post afterward.

A fine time was enjoyed by all.

Last night, Monday 2 August, we had our usual bi-weekly Mix-it-Up Monday soirre with His Grace Lucien Bretano supplying the musical entertainment.  His Grace?  Yes indeed.  His lovely wife, Tehanu Marenwolf just recently purchased some additional  land, thus launching  them into the ranks of the Caledon peerage as Their Graces The Duke and Duchess of the Wind.   Therefore, last night was something of a celebration of thier ascendancy and we were delighted  that several notable persons paid a visit to the Empress, some for the first time.

A full house enjoys DJ Lucien's musical mix.

Among those attending I saw Their Graces Middlesea (Wrath Constantine and Aevalle Galicia), His Imperial Majesty Emperor SteelCobra Calamari, the ever gracious Miss Saffia Widdershins,  the lovely and talented Miss Magdalena Kamenev and several citizens of Austral including Captain Sir Danyell Wytchwood and his Lady.   It was by far one of the best attended Mondays we’ve had in a while.

Too Much Entertainment for One Night

Dear Friends,

I have the great pleasure and pride to offer you a rich selection of live entertainments tonight (July 14, 2010) .  There is more than can easily be conveyed via the abbreviated formats of twitter or plurk; so I will resort to good old-fashioned blogging.

First, on stage at the Empress of the Aethers (SLURL) tonight we present two outstanding vocalists. We start at 6PM SLT with Miss SweetLilly Pinelli followed at 7PM SLT by our very own Miss Andy Riverstone.   Miss Pinelli’s vocals have been described as “Mesmerizing and effortless.”  She performs hits by artists such as Jewel, Coldplay, Colbie Cailiat, Anna Nalick, accompanied by her acoustic guitar.  Miss Riverstone debuted with us two weeks ago to wide acclaim.  She has the body of a fawn and the voice of an angel.  Her repertoire consists of jazz standards and other soulful favorites.  Mr Denny Kozlov will be on hand as your host for the evening.

Unfortunately, I will miss these exceptional  performances due to an engagement of my own.  Tonight at 7PM SLT your friendly neighborhood tiger will be reading the Sherlock Holmes tale “The Red Headed League” at the West of Ireland Library and Cultural Center (SLURL).  I will not be overly disappointed should you choose to enjoy Miss Riverstone’s exquisite musical stylings rather than listen to my own growly tigery voice. 

In either case, let us not forget that tonight is also Wednesday night which means that it is time once again for  the weekly revelry at the Blue Mermaid (SLURL).  After starting your evening at either the Empress or Library please avail yourself of Miss Hypatia Callisto’s generous hospitality, Miss Magdalena Kamenev’s eclectic musical collection and the general bonhomie that always prevails at the Blue Mermaid.

Finally, today also happens to be Bastille Day.  Therefore, the good citizens of New Toulouse are preparing a fireworks display to start at 8PM SLT on the banks of the Missedabracket.  Radio Riel will provide the music with dancing to be held on the New Toulouse Jardin Riverwalk.

Release the Kraken!

(Warning:  This is an exceedingly long post)

It started innocently enough on the evening of Tuesday, 29 June.  Her Grace of Care Firnas mentioned some odd commotion under one of the isles of Steam SkyCity.  Speculation  began that it might be the hatching of new Sky Kraken.   Miss Inglewood made a quip about Krakens and Cheese.  Then Miss Iwish suggested the Discovery Channel should have a “Kraken Week” similar to their ever popular Shark Week.  From there the puns began to fly for the next 90 or so minutes.  Here is a transcript of the chatter from that night:

Fogwoman Gray: something is restless under Steam SkyCity
Fogwoman Gray: how odd
Hope Dreier: Sky Kraken?
Fogwoman Gray: something Deep is stirring
RockAndRoll Michigan: A kraken?
Jillian Vayandar: ack, not the krackens!
Fogwoman Gray: is it possible? (more…)

In Which I Provide A Summation of the Recent Past (Part First)

Dear readers,

I must apologize to those of you who so diligently read this journal.  I have just realized it has been two whole months since my last entry.  And so, I will take this occasion of my so-called Rez Day, the first anniversary of my initial descent into the metaverse, the translation of the analog self to the digital as it were, to provide a brief account of just what the devil I have been up to, if you will excuse the expression.  That date was actually September 1, but it took me a while to get my thoughts down.

I will start by saying that the last two months have been marked by transitions and changes, by highs and lows, discoveries and losses.  One of the more significant changes and discoveries over the last two months has been my adoption of the aetheric short journaling service known as twitter.  Those of you with whom I have shared this medium of communication will already know much of what I will lay down here, but there are many who do not.  It is, therefore, still useful, I think, for me to provide a record in these pages.
