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 ended their ongoing 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.

St. George's Day




A true story, of the history of Saint Georges Day..

Happy Saint George's Day.  Saint George is the Patron Saint of England.

Today marks the day that a dragon was slain.  <insert mother in law jokes here>

In old England, brave George is remembered for summoning tremendous strength, courage and determination.  He killed the fire breathing old dragon that had been attacking the villagers, destroying their crops and turning their homes into ashes.

St. George was actually an outspoken Roman soldier serving a Pagan Emperor. He protested the treatment and torture of Christians by his fellow Romans.

St. George, with wife Mildred
He paid for his beliefs when he made a plea to the Emperor Diocletian to spare the lives of Christians. The Emperor decided that if George cared so much for these lowly citizens, then he must also be a devout Christian himself.  He was tortured to force him to deny his faith and when this did not yield the desired response, he was beheaded. Poor George was only 33.

The slaying of the dragon is symbolic of the courage George showed against the Emperor.  It is however a little ironic that George did not win his battle, nor did he ever set foot in England.  He was born in Turkey and died in Palestine.

Saint George's day was adopted in 1222, when he replaced Saint Edmund the Martyr (King of East Anglia) as England's Patron Saint.

Happy Birthday Ma'am



The Queen celebrates her 96th Birthday today.

In a new picture, issued to mark the occasion, it shows her Majesty with her two ponies on the Norfolk estate.

Prince Philip spent much of his retirement at the estate since 2017 and the Queen used to regularly visit until the Covid pandemic forced them both to move back to Windsor castle.

Buckingham Palace says it is not planning any kind of public events around her birthday, though there will be tributes from her family.

Easter, The Jebus Revival!





Jan Couch     -      Tammy Faye Bakker     -      Vestal Goodman

This weekend in London City, we're holding a "Revival".  A toe-tapping high tempo, deep south, Gospel concert, starring our versions of Jan Crouch and Tammy Faye Bakker as hosts, with Vestal Goodman (known as Vestal Virgin) as the lead performer in our show.

In America, selling God is a multi-billion dollar, tax free business, raking in wealth for its televangelists, unimaginable even by the most famous of performers.

Each week millions of people tune into crying preachers who offer everything from cures for terminal illnesses to guarantees of making you as rich as them, so long as you send them your hard earned cash on a regular basis.

The premise being that God is a bit strapped for cash and that a mighty oak will grow from the acorn you plant.

Perpetually embroiled in scandals of racketeering, prostitution and embezzlement, it is also a cut throat business with each ministry condemning other ministries and producing evidence on each other,  as they compete for the prize fund of your money.

Kenneth Copeland     -     Benny Hinn     -     Robert Tilton

Top of the tree is Kenneth Copeland, with a tax free estimated worth of over a billion dollars, a fleet of private jets and his own airport, all used for spreading the word of the ministry... and holidays.

Every so often things go wrong, as it did in 1987 for Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker, who were the original Satellite Televangelists. Jim was found guilty of mail fraud and sent to prison for 47 years, but paroled just 5 years later. His mistake was to oversell time-share stays at Heritage USA, a city he had built to spread the good word.

Since the Bakkers mistakes, other televangelists have stopped offering tangible assets and instead offer to use their own hot line direct to God (who speaks to them constantly) to get you the things you want.  Since this cannot be measured, its all perfectly legal and profitable in the extreme!

However, with such extreme stakes involved, the production value of the shows produced by each ministry is paralleled only by Walt Disney studios.

Our Revival concert highlights the very best of the glitz and glamour you can expect as your sins are melted away.  It is tongue in cheek, has a free bar with hard liquor, the occasional hooker for our preachers and lots of crying.

We are not poking fun at people's beliefs, we are however aiming to lambaste the highest paying entertainment job in the world.

Starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with 'The Hungry Goodmans' on stage from 1pm SL time.

How to cure anxiety - NHS 'Game Change' via Virtual World



Virtual reality therapy has successfully been used to treat NHS patients with severe anxiety and agoraphobia in a trial led by Oxford University.

The immersive technology helped them move from a “housebound existence to life back in the world outside”, according to a study published 5th April 2022, in The Lancet Psychiatry.

Social Avoidance is a huge issue which has been greatly acerbated in the past few years due to world events, but no one should ever need to feel isolated, due to a wealth of similar like-minded people, who can all connect with each other and enjoy the fun and connectivity of a virtual world.

'Second Life' by Linden Lab is the largest virtual world and will shortly be in it's 20th year.  It is fully inclusive and offers its users, called Residents, the opportunity to engage with people anywhere in the world, using Avatars that represent the persona they are or would wish to be,  build friendships, relationships, visit attractions, events, concerts, and most importantly, interact from the comfort of their own home.    

You do not need a headset and viewers support PC, Mac, Linux and some mobile devices.
