New Mayan Calendar Discovery

Well, I guess most of us made it past the apocalypse.  I heard through a potentially, though probably not too likely, reliable source that after months of meticulous archeological care in excavating the site of the definitive Mayan calendar, a team of German archeologists made an astounding discovery.

This team of scientists, through the use of the most state of the art technologies now available in imaging and mass spectrometer analysis determined there were other carvings on the underneath yet still buried side of the calendar.  Due to the age and fragile nature of the stone, great care and months of effort finally allowed the stone to be turned.

On the back side, the scientists discovered a 2013 calendar!  When the press secretary from The World Ends Today Organization (aka, Kiss Your Butt Goodbye Society) was contacted for their official response to this discovery, Ms Mala Justid's only remark was, "never mind".

In hind sight, maybe we should have paid more attention to the central image in the carvings... a Mayan face sticking its tongue out at all of us... probably wasn't an accident.

End Of The World Party

Now's your chance to go out in style and say that final good bye to your friends and loved ones.  Use it as your chance to tell off your boss...  say all those things you'd normally be afraid to say because of what might happen the next time you show up for work.  Who cares?  THE WORLD ENDS TONIGHT!!!!!

Come celebrate this once in a life time experience with the SLavE Girls DJ Band.  We'll be playing at Pueulla beginning at 1PM SLT until 2:30PM or the world ends, which ever comes first.

Let's all get together and see how it turns out!!!

SLave Girls DJ Band isn't like the usual tribute bands.  Rather than a tribute to a particular band, the tunes they use in their shows are tributes to female performers.  If you'd be interested in a booking, contact 2qt2bstr8 Baily in world.

Lead Vocals:  Ani (anibrm.jung)*

Merry Christmas from SLavE Girls

If you've not ever heard of them, SLavE Girls is a "DJ Band" in Second Life™.  They're not really a tribute band, but their play list is always a tribute to female performers.  Their act is their tunes and their open chat.  They love to interact with their audience and they're always up for a good time!

Check 'em out the next time you get a chance.  If you'd like to look into booking them for a gig, contact  2qt2bstr8 Bailey, one of the band's founders, in world.

Keep an eye out for an announcement for an upcoming show that will herald in the new world... or not!

SL™ Public Surfing Sim Updates

There are a few places one can check to see lists of public surfing sims in Second Life™.  "In world", there's a information and freebie "giver" sign next to the loaner surfboard rezzer on the beach of the SL Surfing Association's (SLSA) home at Solace Dreams.  Just touch the sign to get the freebies, information notecards, and a list of land marks to some of the known public surfing spots.

The Surfwatch Wave Report has also just had updates to both the list by wave type and the alphabetical list.

Another good source for SL™ surfing sims is on Cierra Theriac's blog, Surf Side.  Cierra has a section on Surf Spots where she makes note of the type of wave at each location.

While you're at Cierra's blog, check out the post about the upcoming end of the season celebration and awards ceremony for the SLSA.

If you happen to check out the in-world surfing sim list, take a stroll over to the SLSA Hall of Fame building and give it a look-see.
