What are your favorite green room supplies?
Mason Thorne: well green things along with glass things to consume the green things and water and coffee from kilko coffee house
How would you describe the Mason Thorne experience?
Mason Thorne: Well I rely on audience participation so its important that they are in it too they are my band members then i mix in the masonized folk standards to keep them dancing
You have wild intros how do those happen?
(I think he wandered off ….)
Mason Thorne: Well I needed time to make sure all my stuff was working when I first started. Bob Dylan always does a little tongue in cheek intro at his shows so I worked one up so I could make sure I was on the stream and had good levels ect. No one had ever done anything like that in SL I guess so everyone loved it and it made them laugh so I got a friend of mine who does professional voice overs and made a few. After years I dont need the extra time before to make sure everything is going well as much but they have become part of my show. Which reminds me I have to make new ones the ones I have now I think ppl call the vintage intros
What is your fondest musical experience RL?
Mason Thorne: Every Grateful Dead show I ever went to before Jerry was gone

“Yoru calls him “Mesmerizing Mason,” because he astonished us ….Hawaiian surf musician who is himself as hot as lava? -it was as if lightning had struck the orgy pit amidst the thunder of his music.”
How was playing for an orgy as a surf God?
Mason Thorne: well that was a good idea and I had loads of jokes written for it but when it was going absoultly no one was paying attention to the act on stage including me so it was a tough crowd but since I got to get naked and swirl my prim penis around on stage it was super fun. Okay it doesnt do that but I imagined thats what was happening
Mason Thorne: second life is all about imagining it will happen and then it does
Fan Girl time…
