News of the Weird



Good morning from a sunny RL London, where half the country is off to get their second harpooning this morning.  Good luck if you're one of 'us'.  Take a brolly, it is bound to rain the moment we set foot out of the house!

Last night in London in Second Life, it was standing room only for the marvellous Frankie Valli and the Jersey Boys / Four Seasons.   

The newsreel (below) shows some pictures of our drunken Saturday night adventure and the weeks news condensed to just 3 minutes!

Madame Bailey is down in the dungeon or as we call it, Substation Sunday from 11am SL time (7pm UK) with CoffeeQueen and her famous running buffet of music.  At 1pm SL time, join Katty on the Beach in a drunken stupor playing cool hits to chill to.

Seekers on Saturday




We're having a sing-a-long party with Mavis Cock (who later became Judith Durham).

The Seekers are an Australian up-tempo folk/pop quartet, formed in 1962.

They were the first Australian pop group to achieve major chart and sales success in the United Kingdom and the United States.

The group had Top 10 hits in the 1960s with I'll Never Find Another You, A World of Our Own, Morningtown Ride and Georgy Girl.   The Carnival Is Over is still one of the top 50 best-selling singles of all time in the UK.

Reformed in the late 1990's, The Seekers were still regularly performing until 2015.  However due to the ill health of lead singer Judith Durham, the band has just ended their farewell tours.  Last year a new show on Broadway called Georgy Girl and telling the musical story of the band has reignited interest in the group.

Enjoy The Seekers in London City on Saturday.   Party starts at 12pm SL time (8pm UK) with the show an hour later.

Bank Holiday Eve



Artists impression of Second Life this weekend.

You know us Brits like our public holidays, and its been a month since the last one!

So here comes 3 days of Weekend, or 4 if you wiggled it a bit and added the Friday too.

Although the real life weather is looking more than a little bit crappy, with the odd hurricane, and some electrical storms thrown in for good measure, you can rest assured that the sun is still shining in London City.

Starting Friday, we have four days of weekend with all the clubs partying hard.  Immerse yourself in the virtual sunshine with us, grab a beer and lets party!

Weekend Gossip



Well here we all are. The morning after the night before and we lived through our hangovers. Congratulations!

Last night Karen Carpenter tried her best to get us all maudlin, but she hadn't figured on us being innoculated thanks to an hour of cheery tunes beforehand. 

Here are some pictures of the party, but first, catch up on the news. The only broadcast you ever need to here.   See you at Substation at 11am PDT (7pm UK) and at The Worlds End Beach party at 1pm SL.
