The Fantastic Weekend Review

Hellllo  London  City...What a flippin fabulous weekend  we  had  here  in  SL.
Usually  I'd  tell you about  about  the amazing  venues  we  have  here  in  the top destination  in SL...Then  I'd move  on to the Awesome  LIVE show  in Regents  Park  ..... BUT,  I'm  too excited!! I want  to share it with  right  now.... This weeks  show, will go down  in  SL  history.... Grab a cuppa, get  ya  feet up  and  read  on....

The chances of anything coming from Mars are a million to one, but still they come.....

The story so far...
A huge mass of luminous gas has erupted from Mars and sped towards earth.

Across two-hundred-million miles of void, invisibly hurtling towards us, comes the first of the missiles that is to bring so much calamity to earth.

THE WAR  OF  THE WORLDS!!! This show  was  EPIC!!!

I'd actually  pay a huge  amount  to watch this awesome  show, but  it was totally FREE and open to everyone  to enjoy....  we  pulled  out all  the stops... Special  FX,  Pyrotechnics, Lasers, Video, Music, a Custom  built  Stage and surrounding concert area,  Martians, if  you missed  this... you missed something  really  special...

This fabulous virtual  show  was fully  interactive  too, brought to  you  by  London  City,  the  top destination  in  SL, and sponsored by DX Exchange, the easiest way to buy in world currency, with Regional UK HQ in London City!,

We invited  the audience to  play  a  role  in  this  wonderful  interpretation of  The War Of The Worlds... asking everyone who wanted  to  take  part  to dress  in  the turn  of  the century  clothing.... cloth caps  and  shirts for  the  chaps, and  long dresses with a bustle for  the girls.

A hush fell  over  London  City as  the  concert began,  then we  heard  the famous  lines "No one would  have  believed  in  the last  years  of  the  19th  Century that  human affairs were  being watched.... "  the crowd roared and  Regents park  lit  up with  bright green laser lights...

Then "action"  places  please!!!....
Everyone  took  to  the stage, and  took  part  in  a choreographed dance  routine.... all  in time, all  the practice paid  off  (lol)

This is where  I wished  I was  in  two places at  once,  in  the show  and  watching  the show.... thank  heavens  for  the panning  camera.

The  whole  show  brought  shivers,  it was  truly awesome, and  hard to  beat... this show  is way ahead  of  anything else  available  in SL...

War  Of The  Worlds, is a Sci-Fi  novel  written  by  H.G Wells in 1895, it centre's around  London as  it is  invaded  by Martians,  it details  the  conflict between  Mankind  and  the Extraterrestrial race.

The book has  never  gone out of print since and has  spawned  T.V shows, Radio shows, Feature Films, Musical  shows, Comic  Books , a Record  Album, and now hit  SL, by  London  City.
 This story has something for everyone,  Romance, Action, Adventure, Monsters,  Military, Science you  name  it  this  story  includes  it all.

It's  the second  time  London  City has  attempted  this  huge  interpretation  of  the show,  bigger  and  better  than  ever  before. I'm ecstatic that so  many people came to watch, and  more took  part, all  feeling  the  energy  of  this  awesome  adaptation.  Well done to everyone who took part, we  look forward to  more  interactive this  space...more are  coming  you way London.

Also  over  the week, we  have  seen  the  new  pavilion  open

found  in  Sim  3  Victoria,  this is  the  new meeting  place for all the cool  peeps  to hang  out.

Juiced  we had  a murder  mystery and seance  night, and a Greek night  to  name  but 2.

Worlds  end  a fantastic  Brit Pub, bringing  you pub quizzes and zany madness,  just  like  we  like  it.

Substation  playing  us  retro yesteryear  golden  oldies

 Bar Soho  playing  the  Best music,  if  you don't hear  it here,  it's  not worth  listening  to open 5 days  a week, especially for  music  lovers.

Madame  Lala's delivering fun tongue  in cheek  banter and  music  to get  ya  toe  tapping

The  Crown,  giving  you  the best  Adult  fun to be had  anywhere  in  SL.

All in  all this week  has  to be  one  of  the  most  memorable, plus  we said  good  bye to  Margaret  Thatcher,  love  her  or  loathe  her  she  is  part of  our  history, and as  you  know  we  follow  Rl  events  very  closely, so we sat  and  paid  tribute  to  England's  first  female Prime Minister.

Well,  that's all from  me  this week,  I'll see  you for  more  fun  and  frolics  next time  in  London  City...  the top destination  in  Second  Life,  accept  no  imitations!!

The Pavilion, Victoria, London City3

The Pavilion in Real Life, is a new building in London's Victoria Park built in 2007.
It is a central point in the park and public meeting place, with washrooms and drinking fountains.

One of the key factors of the building is shared ownership between various sport and community groups and the public, to foster pride and a feeling of ownership in the public parks.  Currently it houses the Pavilion Cafe.

In London City, Second Life, The Pavilion serves a very similar purpose, replacing the original adult hub structure with a more contemporary Meeting Place, Freebie Shop and Help Area for new and experienced users alike.

We hope you will enjoy this latest addition to London City3

The Fabulous Weekend Review

Hey  London  City what's  happening ?
Well,  it seems real  life London  decided  to follow  us and  take  our  lead, fed  up with the horrid weather, we  declared SUMMER  IN THE CITY.... and  I think  it heard  us... its  been glorious weather here... I think  this  is  the  first time I've seen  people  smiling  this year :P....

Gobby  Magoo arrives  in  London City
So, as a new  Resident  to  London City, what can  you expect  to  find  here...  I caught  up with  Gobby  Magoo ( a new  resident to second  life) ...lets follow her  on  her journey around the awesome  London  City.
First  off Gobby landed in  Sim  1  hub,  this is  located in  Soho, one  of  two  hubs  in  London  City, here  people gather, it's a great place to  make  new friends, catch  up  on  all  the gossips, meet before  heading  into  the city for fantastic  night  life.

I asked  Gobby  what she  thought  of  the the hub  in  Soho...
"Well" she said " its  has  everything  I expect  London to be...Bright and  Bustling, and  loads  of  people  about" ...
She wasn't wrong, London City  is always  busy, with fun  loving people.

Some  of  the  first  people  you will meet on arriving  are  our  fabulous  greeters, a dedicated  team  of  people, who enjoy nothing better than a good  chin wag, and helping  all new residents  find their way round  London  City, these guys are worth  their weight  in  gold, always ready to lend a helping  hand  to  the new residents.
Here's a few  of  the team  that wanted to say  hi.

Hi, I'm Tourma  - I've  been a London Greeter for about 5 months although I've been in SL for over 6 years. I love the atmosphere in London - always busy and interesting, always something happening.  There are so many visitors from all round the world and the sense of Community is great.  We often have lots of fun chatting and bantering together and I've made some good friends and enjoy welcoming and helping new people that arrive at the Welcome Hub.

Hi, I'm  RonnieQ, I joined the  London City team in October 2011 (halloween day!)

I really dot know what to say about myself, im a happy person, (or try to be) how likes to hang around, chat and help new residents. 2011 (Halloween day!) (Spooky!!)

Hi I'm longjohn. I have been in Second Life over a year nowI've been working  as a greeter a few weeks now. It's nice helping the new comers. Lots to learn. I also host at Madam Lala's which is a chuckle.

Hi,  I'm CoffeeQueen, most people call  me  CQ,I've been working in London for about 1 and a half years now.  I started off hosting in Bar Soho, and now also work in Substation and run The Worlds End Pub with Katty.

I thoroughly enjoy my work in London, and have made lots of dear friends along the way.  What I enjoy most about working in London is the people.  I have met so many nice people since I arrived in London, and love to see the regulars who join us at the events.

 Haloooo I'm Lokirat, been in London for almost a year, and sl for 3 years. I love working in London for the parties and events we have, there's a great community spirit, and we're all here for each other no matter what goes on in RL. I wouldn't leave for the world! :)

and  they are all under  the watchful  eye  of  Evie.

Name: Evie
Time in SL: almost 4 years
Time working in london: almost two years (I think)

I enjoy the interaction of SL and love that I can log on and chat to so many different types of people globally.  I also believe in supporting others to come into and enjoy our community

And I'm a naturally stubborn person so I love a spot of ping-pong!

And on  behalf  of  all  the team and managers we want to say  thank  you for all  their hard work xx

If  you think you have what  it takes  to be a greeter,  if  you  like  to chat and  help people. Contact Evie or  Bean in-world, and maybe  you can  become  one  of  our fantastic  team.

too  much too soon :P
I decided to  take  Gobby aound  some  of  the wonderful  venues  in  London  City... we jumped  in a mini,  this little car  drove  us  around  the sims  giving  us  landmarks  and  information as we  took  in all  the sights.... we decided  to  get  out at  The  crown  Pub...  The Crown  is  found  in  Sim  3 Victoria,  its an  adult  pub,  with adult  themes, this  is  for Adults  only, and for  no  strings  fun, hot and steamy... sensing  this  wasn't actually Gobby's  cup  of  tea, we moved  on  to  Substation.

Substation, found  in Soho, a retro place, where everything  is a golden  oldie,

the venue  is  a throw  back to  the 60's and  the music  certainly gets  your  foot tapping with all  the great tunes we  know  and  love. We found  ourselves at a Horror event,  where everyone dressed in scary costumes  for a chance to win  some  Linden Dollars.

Then  we  moved  on to Bar Soho,  fresh, clean, and swanky,  Bar  Soho is  for  the  music  lovers, boasting a different Dj, Host  combination nightly, Bar Soho is the place to see and  be  seen.

right after the events  closed, its time to say goodnight before  heading  off elsewhere in  London  City...we had a group  hug.

Every Saturday Regents  Park  plays  host  to  an awesome  LIVE  open air concert,  that  is  totally free to attend.... This week i  took Gobby along, you  will  never  guess who was  in  concert... go on ... have a guess....

Only  the awesomely talented  Helvis  Xue!!!!

Have some  of  that!!!

Helvis is  a fantastic  singer, singing  all  kinds  of  modern songs  with an Elvis  twist. Its a totally different take, and  thoroughly enjoyable.

Helvis  sang  his  socks  off  for  over an hour,
entertaining  us  not only with  his awesome voice,  but  his fun banter, this guy really know how to work a crowd,  much  like  the  King himself.

As always  people flocked in to  the park, filling  it  up very quickly, it's always advisable to get  there early to get  your place  on  the dance floor.

 Gobby and  I were  there partying  with  the best of  them.

I think  I for one partied a bit too  hard ... oops

Thank  heavens  for  the Sunday Smooth at  Lala's, with  Bailey spinning some soothing easy listening  music, and fun relaxed banter.... A come as  you are event, what could be simpler....

Later we bumped  in  to  Regent Hoof  himself...Regent  is  the  Jr Ewing  of  London City, he had  this  to say " Nice  t*ts toots"

I asked  him  if  he would  like  to share a few words with  us  on  the blog....
"toots, I'm too busy to fart, let alone talk.  Tell um how wonderful their old mate Regent is.  Find some way of letting the birds know that I'm a man of power and will get them a kebab afterwards and a taxi home.   Well a minicab cos its cheaper."

Ahem ... moving  on ...

Gobby and  I  moved  on to  Juiced,,, a  themed  club with a difference.... the themes change daily, along  with the d├ęcor,  plus  the music  is  themed  to the event  to boot ...we had a right old  hoot, as we attended a biker night event.

BUT  THEN ......

SHHHHHHH!!! I think  it's all been a bit  much for  our  new friend Gobby  Magoo,  lets  let  her sleep it  off....

And we still had  loads  more venues  to  Visit,... The Worlds End in  the West  End  sim 2.
Dykes  on  Bikes and  the SweatBox Sauna,  The Palladium to mention  but a few,  oh well,  we can  hit  them  next  time, sleep well Gobby xxx

I caught  up with  Gobby again, after she had  visited a few  other sims  found  in  SL, I asked  her what she thought  of  them .....

well... I guess  that says  it all  :)

Thats all from me  this week, I'll see you  in  London City ( the best destination in  SL) next time for  more fun and  frolics xxx
