Happy St. Patrick's Day!



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

A very happy St. Patrick's day to you all!

Join everyone in The Worlds End pub today at 12pm 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, its what St. Patrick would have wanted!

Joe Dolan on Saturday



Continuing the Irish Festival for St Patrick's, top entertainer Joe Dolan in Concert on Saturday.

Joe Dolan was an Irish entertainer and recording artist.

He is known mainly for his flamboyant shows which include many well know standards and for his high pitched singing voice, without using falsetto, which is reminiscent of Greek singer Demis Roussos.

Whilst Joe never achieved notable chart success in America, he regularly toured the States and played a residency in Vegas.  In Ireland he is the only Irish singer to have charted in the top ten in each decade from the 1960s onwards.

Joe Dolan died in 2007, but his talents live on and whilst you may not be familiar with the singer you will certainly know the songs and enjoy Joe's rendition.

On Saturday we invite you to enjoy this remarkable entertainer at Party in The Park.

Party starts at 1pm SL (8pm  UK) and the show is an hour later at 2pm SL.

Everly Brothers on Saturday



Appearing  this Saturday: The Everly Brothers.

Don and Phil Everly first became famous back in 1957 with Bye Bye Love and quickly established themselves as Rock n Rollers for the rest of that decade.

 Wake Up Little Susie, Cathy's Clown and Walk Right Back followed successively before they moved into the rock-a-ballad style they later became synonymous with.

In the mid 1960's they chart topped with, Crying In The Rain, Devoted To You, All I Have To Do Is Dream, Love Is Strange, Ebony Eyes, When Will I Be Loved and other softer rock songs.

By the start of the 1970's both brothers had become addicted to amphetamines which lead to a nervous breakdown for Don and the duo stopped recording. By the time both were recovered, disagreements had turned into a feud and the brothers did not perform, nor communicate with each other for a decade and pursued fruitless solo careers.

Thirteen years after the split, they performed some tense reunion concerts together beginning in the UK in 1983 where they had agreed that they would only talk to each other whilst on stage, but only if it was necessary.  Encouraged by the media hype of the reunion, in 1984 they recorded, On The Wings Of A Nightingale which was to be their final song to enter the charts.

By the 1990's the brothers had made peace with each other, but their stop-start careers had eroded their following and they continued to perform one-off reunion concerts every few years until their last appearance in 2004 as featured artists for the Simon & Garfunkel tour Old Friends, Live On Stage.

Phil Everly died in 2014, but the Everly Brothers legacy will live on.
We invite you to experience their heyday and bask in the incredible love songs penned by these talented and troubled souls.

Party in the Park is at 12pm SL (8pm UK) with the stage show an hour later.

Farewell to Oz Linden



On Tuesday evening the Linden's held a farewell party for Oz, who after almost 11 years at the Lab, has decided that now uplift is complete, his mission is accomplished. Quite rightly Oz wants to retire and on a high note and leaves Second Life in a scalable position with a bright future.

A party was held on Simon Linden's region and as you can see for yourself, the Vice President of Engineering was an immensely popular Linden.   

We wish him all the very best with his future endeavours.

A lovely love-in



 Last night at our CND site full of nuclear disarmament ladies with hairy legs and guys with hair down to their ankles, we basked in the glory that was Cat Stevens, who told us where we were going wrong.

After a bit of bra burning, the crowd settled down for a love-in with copious amounts of grog.  We were soothed by his melodic voice and whatever we were smoking at the time.






And in case you missed the World News of The Week in 3 minutes.. here it is..
