Have a good semester, DJ kEtchUp

Alex started his semester today. It’s his final semester of classes. WooT!

I’ve been sick so I’ve got nothing for posts. Sorry gang. I must have got it from Gorgeous Guen!

I have been playing around with this Flock web browser. It lets me do some cool blogging tricks like blog from the browser (as opposed to the WordPress dashboard) and drop/drag images or text in from anywhere. Flock calls itself a social web browser. What the hell does that mean? Whatever, I am not terribly web 2.0 social these days but I do like the flickr feature that displays new media from my contacts in a media bar over the browser window. It’s a little cluttered but fun.

Anyways, we had fun at ye olde Clockwork last night. dj kEtcHup spun a mix of old and new rock gems, and then EsteHulk turned the funk up to 11 in honor of MLK day.

It was all fun and games until somebody broke out the suitcase nuke. Then it was fun, games, slagging on the Monte Cristo and gagging on virtual toxic flames.

Does Monday get any better than this?

Stay tuned for another Mandelbrot Set podcast, stat.

Love, lovers

love, lovers

Last night was the first of the newly minted TMI Tuesdays at Clockwork with Jelly and Hawks. The music was, as always, bangin’ and that’s not the only thing.

Luckily it was a rather intimate evening, because the shit that went down was truly not for public consumption. Let’s just say Alex and I got a lively education regarding the latest poseballs for lovers.

Jellybean and Hawks said that they noticed Alex and I acting a lot more, er, lovey dovey and stuff, I guess since he popped the question and all. Alex took the above pic unprompted by me, so maybe there’s something to that.

There has been some real RL stuff going down between us. Not bad stuff, but not easy stuff. So I think maybe we are a little more on each others’ minds. And I’m glad. He makes me feel all sorts of tingly, like a girl with a crush again.

Now for poseball shopping…

(n)eXt Podcast and keTchUp’s kitchen table rant

Clockwork is for lovers

This is a two hour set and I probably should have broken it up into a couple of sections, but oh well. It should stream fine, and if you’re downloading, I hope your connection is fast and smooth. Some weeks, there is just so much I want to get out because there is that much great new music—and I know there’s a terabyte of even fresher sounds coming down the tubes.

If you like what you hear, please buy some music to help support the artists. I think our entire system of “support” for the arts is fucked, but until some unlikely sweeping changes occur, I am a staunch centrist on the music downloading issue. What this means—and this is by no means a legal argument–is that I think the record companies and artists should stfu and not prosecute people who download music even though they have legal standing. It’s just smart business in the long run. In return, people who listen to music should realize that they are participating in a cultural community and whether or not they also make music themselves, they need to do things to support that community. Really support it. This means if you download even one song for free, I believe you should be putting a lot more than the $0.99 iTunes or $0.33 eMusic value back into the community. How do you do that?

1. Buy some music. Duh. Get an eMusic subscription. Support Bleep. Support CD Baby and AmpCamp. Support your local mom and pop store—those people are music geeks just like the rest of us and they run those places because of love and obsession, not to maximize profits for shareholders.

2. Go see live music, especially small venues. Buy music and t-shirts directly from the bands, even if they were mediocre. Doing this keeps them in peanut butter and socks.

3. Tell all your friends about the great bands you discover.

4. Lather, rinse, repeat.

If you download more than one song, you should think about supporting the music and arts community in the following ways: Booking bands to play local venues (your party at your mom’s house, rent the American Legion Hall, help bring good bands to the local dive bar); when small touring acts come through town, make sure they have a place to sleep (your apartment floor is way better than the van, and partying with the band rules); or start an indie label, a promotions company, or write a music blog—do anything that churns the butter and gets people excited. If you do these things, you’re putting back just a bit of what you owe.

What does this mean for Second Life? Same thing. Do it all in both places. No slacking, we’re all in this together and life is better with art.

MIA BLOGGER

Have you seen this chicken?

dj kEtcHup

Well, we knew Alexander Burgess had a semester of gradual skool, so we gave him some slack. But what’s stopped him from posting during the break? That farking AWNM dudes’ blog? Harumph. So they have nakie pics. M is for Myg has podcasts! And DJs! And Hulk! And snarkiness! Is this not enough? Seems like there’s a trend here. One that must be stopped!

If anybody sees this chicken, remind him from Myg that there ain’t no date set yet…

A girl blogger has needs, ya know. Regular posting is one of them, right along with daily thumb massages and coffee in the morning!

Top ten stories I want to see covered at aRE wE nOT mEN

You know all about it now, right? The Alex-Wrath-Hawksrock blog, Are We Not Men? After a year of reading MGG2SL, it seems they felt that the “typical guy” avatars of Second Life needed a strong voice in the media too, and who better, really, to represent. Fine. But if they’re going to have the backs of the typical Second Life Guy, there are some pressing issues they need to be addressing.  What follows here are Myg’s priority stories for the Big Bad Mens on the block.

makin2.jpgStory Number 1: Foreplay – not just seven minutes in heaven.

Story Number 2: Impress her for life: fold T-shirts like a GAP employee and get yourself laid!

Story Number 3: Talking to virtual women – strategies for the homebound and socially inept (I’ve got this on the “must read” list for several dudes already…) 

Story Number 4: When (and more importantly, when not) to go topless in public!Burgess and Wrath are mens

Story Number 5: Man clothes! Turns out you don’t *have* to wear the same t-shirt for six months afterall!

Story Number 6: Hair that doesn’t suck – the three styles every SLMan must have!1047056022_f47e0edad9_o 

Story Number 7: Porn for Women. Does it really exist? Yes, it does, and it comes with household appliances! 

Story Number 8: Gender bending 101 – get the most out of your orientation exploration without being a motherfucker to everyone else!

Benjina BigbellyStory Number 9: Do I look fat in this? How to answer critical questions without getting yourself killed. 

Story Number 10: Dirty old man – how to be one without being a complete asshole. (**Hint** do not assume everyone around you is in their early twenties!)
 Dirty old man again

I’m not saying they needed ideas – seems they have plenty of them. But I’m just saying, if the boys get it right we all stand to benefit a little from this venture.

So what have you got, fellas?

Damn.

We are the pretty, petty thieves, and you’re standing on our street.

morrisey_002.jpg

Okay, this started a couple of weeks ago when this charming man, Wrath, the biggest Morrissey/Smiths freak that ever was, noticed that “Morrisey” was an available SL last name. Someone pointed out that it would be funny if we had a Smiths/Morrissey night at Clockwork and all came with alts with the last name “Morrisey.” Well, hang the dj, that’s a brilliant idea. (And yes, we understand it’s not exactly the spelling of Moz’ last name. Leave the second S off for sorrow. Or something.) We laughed about it and agreed we should. But, as we have brilliant ideas all the time (ha!), we didn’t immediately pursue it.

But last night we started talking about it again and began thinking of first names to go with “Morrisey.” Myg disappeared and then, faster than a hairdresser on fire, this ugly n00b “Myg Morrisey” tp’d into the club. It was on. Soon there was “More,” “KillUncle,” “JellyBean,” “HawksRock,” “Jillian,” and “Suedehead” Morrisey. By the end of the night we had “Sable,” “Nene,” “Piccadilly,” and “Zo.” It won’t stop there.

morrisey_005.jpg

Morriseys are against rules. They are anarchic, friendly, and weird.

Morriseys generally travel in packs. Though there are no rules, Morriseys feel more comfortable in the company of other Morriseys. A lone Morrisey is a vulnerable target, and we don’t want to feel more vulnerable than we already do. Also, traveling in packs is a moveable feast, a transient Morrisey mob. While out traveling in packs, Morriseys will be noticed. Don’t panic. Stick together. Ask the people if they like The Smiths or Morrissey. When they say “yes” jubilance ensues. Encourage them to change their last name to Morrisey immediately.

What will come of this? I wouldn’t say, no. But you can bet there will be events, probably parties, sets, and Morrisey Mobs. Eventually, we will outnumber the Lindens. Get your Morrisey now. How soon is now? Today. Join the group -=Morrisey=-. Await instructions.
