The Getaway

The Getaway

I chuckle to myself as I sit here tapping this blog into my phone.

Why I hear you echo?

I’m now on holiday from work till the 14 April and it just made me chuckle because I’m going absolutely nowhere!!’ Nowhere!

My trip will be from bed to work desk and as of tomorrow it will be from bed to sofa! Living the dream, the current Covid19 one.

I didn’t have many plans when I first booked the time off. Only I had planned some days hanging out with my daughter and her son. Day trips that kind of thing.

Sadly due to Lockdown that is not possible.

I’m right now missing my son and daughter a great deal. Doing the brave I’m ok and I’m fine face but inside my heart struggles with the knowing I have no idea when I can next hug them.

It’s such an uncertain time and I’m wondering how long this may go on for.

We are in the early stages and already it feels suffocating the restriction to life as we know it.

But, we can find ways to explore the world in the confines of our isolation. Today I’m taking you to a place called The Getaway.

Day out?

Day out?

If you are looking for a day out, forget it. No really forget it.

You are not going anywhere at all.

Get away from that car!!

I mean it, away from the car!

That’s about how our lives are right now. Summer is around the corner and for some odd reason I’ve been summer clothes shopping. Online of course!

I did ask myself today why? I mean really why? We can’t go anywhere at all right now.

Still should the Zombie Apocalypse start and I have to go on the run, I’ll have some excellent new outfits to wear.

In the meantime we can live vicariously within our virtual worlds.

This dress was for the Saturday Sale. It may still be out. I’m not sure, but suffice to say it has a hud and you really cannot miss out if you bought the fatpack.

CORE – Manticore Games

CORE – Manticore Games

Core is an endless universe of games and worlds designed by a global community of creators.

A multiverse if you will,  of places to go and just have random fun in and if you are feeling creative, go create your own vision.

I applied when this was in the Alpha to explore it and see what it was about. I figured I’m not a creator but definitely an explorer and like to find news things to do when I fancy.

I’m so recommending this as frankly I have had a laugh just flitting about the place pretending I’m this chick on a skateboard racing around people.

I met a guy and asked how to take a photo. Well I fell for the oldest trick in the book.

The good old Alt F4!!!

Need I say more. I’m averse to instructions and tend to blunder my way around. I eventually catch up and so maybe next video I will astound you with my camera skills. Right now come check it out below. Why not? Lets face it in this current climate of self isolation, we need to find our own entertainment and lets just explore everything there is out there.

Back to basics. New normal.

Back to basics. New normal.

Do you feel like we have slowly been going back in time and suddenly we now find ourselves having the time to spend doing all those things we put off?

Me neither!

Unfortunately unlike many other people who now find time on their hands and may be suffering some itchy boredoms, my day is still the same as always albeit the  silence which was my friend is not so currently.

I value my alone time, I need it. In fact it is essential for my mental well being. So if you read about a woman who loses her shizzle, that will be me.

When Mr Corona Virus decided to spread its ugly tentacles to the world, it did so with such severity it took control of all our lives. Its ending many lives prematurely and making living lives more difficult because of the things we have got so used to.

But let me add, things could be way worse in life. Dont  moan.

A sentence of time with your loved ones for weeks on end is not the end of the world. In fact could be a time to discover each other and maybe listen for a change. Yes hands on the phone you who is half here and half watching tv whilst tapping on social media. You!

There is so much more to life than what you are used to.

I don’t think once this all is over, we will return to our usual lives so easily.

I believe this is a testing time and we will learn the things we take for granted and whats important. Well I hope so as otherwise as a species its true we learn nothing.

But spare a thought for the dysfunctional families out there who are stuck in the same walls together. There are people suffering because of this forced isolation and we may complain about our situations but domestic violence in homes is serious and there are children and partners who look forward to their normal days as they can escape temporarily what they face.

It’s those people I fear who suffer greatly at this time and we must be vigilant in keeping our ears open to those situations and reporting them so no child or adult is left to suffer.

Other than that, discover the pages of a good book or two or three.

Here’s the concert event:-

 

Doing anything this weekend? Like all of us we are at home and finding a new way of living during this pandemic.

https://youtu.be/mGHA1gtM97w

 

March 23, 2020 – San Diego, CA: Veteran Second Life “Rock Star” Seth Regan a.k.a. Mankind Tracer is planing a return to his Second Life shows… and in a big way! On Sunday, March 29, 2020 at 2PM SLT, Seth is planning a big 4 sim live concert event backed by Linden Lab. Seth has been out of SL since his final performance back in August, 2016 when he performed a benefit concert to help raise much needed money for his dear friend and manager Kalli Birman’s children after she sadly lost her battle with cancer.

After 20 years of professional touring with various cover and originals projects, Seth discovered Second Life in 2006. He quickly rose to stardom as the most widely recognized live performer in SL. He continued his meteoric rise by introducing live video shows and holding the largest ever event in SL with his first “Peace, Love & Belief” concert which took place on 23 sims. He later blasted that record in 2011 with PLB 5 which took place across 63 sims! In 2008, Seth’s SL fan group the “Friends of Mankind” flew him out to Amsterdam to perform at what is hailed as the first ever SL meetup. They repeated it again in 2009 with over 20 countries represented at the event.

Seth has played countless benefit/charity concerts over the years, raising money to help organizations and even individuals in need. This Return Concert will similarly be a benefit with 100% of your donations going to help the World Health Organization’s effort to battle Coronavirus. Please consider making a donation. Seth will not have any tip jars at the event, but there will be clickable banners to the WHO donation page at the event. You can also click here to donate directly to @WHO: https://www.covid19responsefund.org

During his time performing in Second Life, Seth has been the recipient of the most prestigious awards including “Best Live Performer”, “Best Singer Songwriter”, “Listener’s Choice Award”, the “2011 Best of SL Lifetime Achievement Award for Outstanding Contributions to Second Life”.

This is a concert event not to be missed! The “Mankind Tracer” fans are already buzzing! If you don’t know Seth’s music, you’ve been missing out. He has released 7 albums that are available on iTunes, Spotify and everywhere else. Just search his name and you’ll find his music. His live concerts have set the tone for many SL performers who would follow. One word of caution, Seth is fond of dragging people up on stage so be sure to dress to the nines in case you are one of the few he pulls up on stage. 

Grab Seth’s 7th album “Covers – Part I” here:

Although there are 4 sims for this event, fans are urged to arrive early before the 2PM SLT scheduled concert start time. 3 sims will be set for the general public and the 4th will be used for the stage and for Seth’s group, the “Friends of Mankind” and other key VIP’s. Attendees are asked to wear Seth’s colors, red and black. Check out Seth’s own clothing line on SL Marketplace called “R:O:K Store”.

Keep an eye out on SL’s Destination Guide, Blogs, Firestorm, Social Channels, websites and other online spots for posts about Seth Regan’s highly notable return to Second Life.

My Personal Friends

My Personal Friends

I’ve noticed a lot of mixed thoughts and differences appearing on social media the past week or so about COVID-19 and how people are relating to it.

This isn’t the time to argue about whether or not someone used a mask in a photo, or a merchant is making profit from COVID-19 merchandise. Is it?

I don’t believe people are choosing to offend or to be upset on the flip side.

Many merchants sole incomes are made in Second Life. Remember that too.

We are ALL in this together. But I totally agree that in terms of anything related to this epidemic, they should be educational and light relief. Not salacious scare mongering.

We all are dealing in this time of let’s face it an (unprecedented in our lifetime global emergency) in many different ways.

But, make sure that you show respect to those around you who you may not know are personally suffering from. Remember, you may be perfectly fine in your world but someone else is not.

Show respect and be kind about how people are dealing.

We are humans and deal in different ways. Some find laughter, some find reflection and some deal with the harsh reality directly in the face.

Whichever way you deal with it remember that not everyone deals in the same way as you.

I personally am a laughter person and so hence my Thelma in isolation videos. They will continue as she finds herself facing what we all do. But in a light hearted way to only make you smile.

Because at the end of the day I’d rather laugh than cry. This is last weeks episode if you haven’t seen it.

Saturdays have always been the night of the dance video. But today I thought I’d mix it up a little with a Second Life tour of the new Jian Zoo.

One thing I love about life are nature’s wild life and their individual characters.

To bring a sense of that into our virtual world just makes it seem all that more special.

So if you are stuck at home and at a loss for something to do in Second Life. Pack up a picnic in your backpack and sun hat on your head and head to the Jian Zoo.

The Saturday Blues

The Saturday Blues

Saturday blues.

I haven’t got them but I know a few of my friends are currently struggling at the moment.

I’ve managed to do all sorts of housey things in the real world. Even changed the bedding and stroked the cats.

Made incredibly ridiculous videos about self isolation for my friends and basically just a normal day for me.

I’m used to being alone and occupying myself.

Boredom has never really been a word I’ve used.

Though it may come to my vocabulary on days of work because we are restricting what our roles are doing and not calling people.

That I may struggle with, as despite my loner ways, I love talking.

It’s part of my psyche and keeps me motivated and part of life.

Time will tell.

In the meantime I’ve been compiling a few videos and will see how I narrate these given I have not done that in front of the housemate as yet.

This could be interesting!!!

In the meanwhile our virtual worlds are actually getting more traffic as we spend more time participating within them.

So if you are going to decorate your garden with something for you and your loved one why not trying out the zeros Hiding place.

It has some lovely couple animations within it.

Currently $60L on the MP!
