Pride: Pracatan on Saturday: "I lub ewe"



Something camp for Pride.

This week it's Margarita Pracatan  a Cuban singer and gangster who found unexpected success in the 1990s.

Her big break came on the Clive James TV show where each week Margarita would play out the show, singing  her own unique rendition of famous songs, but performed on a Casio electronic organ, often with an unusually fast beat, and often playing all the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order.

Now, in London, she  performs a breath taking show with an unusual orchestra provided by a Casio organ.

A show not to be missed!  Trust us!

Party starts 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the concert an hour later at 1pm.

Seekers on Saturday




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

The Seekers were 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 had to end their farewell tours after the show at the Royal Albert Hall in London, when Judith's declining health had become obvious.  

Last year a new show on Broadway called Georgy Girl, telling the musical story of the band reignited interest in the group.   Judith Durham lived to see the incredible resurgence of interest in talent. She died on 5th August 2022 and the world lost one of the most amazing voices ever, but her legacy continues.

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

 TP: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/100/100/23

Shortly before her death, Judith Durham released Acapella album demonstrating that she had retained nearly all of her beautiful voice, despite suffering a brain bleed earlier the same year, but the concert in London City features Judith at her absolute best.

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 hideous dragon, 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.

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.

All our bars, clubs, speakeasies and dens are open through the holidays as the good lord would want.
The big show is on Saturday at 12pm SL time. Tammy Faye Bakker, Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Vestal Goodman, Jan Crouch, Happy Harold Goodman take to the stage for the annual revival!

Dusty Springfield on Saturday



Perhaps one of the most iconic looks of the 1960's belongs to singer Dusty Springfield, with her white backcombed hair and thick eyeliner.  It was a look that so many have tried to emulate.

Dusty is appearing in London City on Saturday and the party starts at 1pm SL time (8pm UK), with the show an hour later at 2pm SL time.

Clocks go forward tonight in Europe and UK.  Back not normal times next week.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!



Pissed as a fart, "Two fingers of whisky please"

A very Happy St. Patrick's day to you all (so it is).

You can join everyone in Substation at 11am SLT (7pm UK) for a right proper knees up with copious amounts of liquor.

St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Partaay, was born in Belfast in 1955 and is credited with forcing Christianity on the people of Ireland.  But he did some good things too..  He was the first 3 parts pissed Bishop who would regularly have a nip, mid-sermon for medicinal purposes whilst singing Hymn's in the style of Boris Yeltsin.

The Apostle of Ireland, came to a sticky end when he fell into a vat of rum in 1995, but left this world with a smile and a burp.

Let's all party today, it is what St. Patrick would have wanted!

His most famous songs include, "For Lovin' Me", "Early Morning Rain", "If You Could Read My Mind", "Sundown", "Carefree Highway", "Rainy Day People" and "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald"
