@ White Chapel Londen LEA

Singer, Songwriter, Musician, Artist

Totally wild Suzen Juel!

 Suzen grew up with a family of French Musicians Artists and Writers, no wonder she was playing guitar by 13 and expanding. Suzen’s first CD came out in 1989. She began performing in Second Life in 2005 with her 6 string guitar. Being one of the first Indie artists to perform in second life she has seen the music scene grow

While expressing her artistic side and emotions through her music, words and art it emerges as a tapestry of color and sound.

Suzen’s musical style is powerful, bold, sensual, earthy and wild!

Suzen Juel aka Juel Resistance also shares her Art in second life.

She did a LEA build in 2016 I got the chance to ask her a few questions in this blog post.

  • “Suzen you are obviously passionate about your music and Art.
  • What would you say is your main motivator to create?

“My main motivator to create is a push of thought that is so powerful it can’t be ignored. The logical reason however is…(like Dylan once said, I don’t like the songs I hear so I wrote my own)….I don’t like a lot of things I see around me….blank walls, silent rooms, no color….So I wanted to create things that make my eyes happy, songs that make someone…somewhere…feel what I’m feeling. We all express what is inside of us in different ways. Some people are vocally expressive, others express through fixing things, or creating lavish meals, or simply cleaning a space around them…..it all has a purpose. I become overwhelmed with an emotion of sorts and it comes out through color or sound.”

Fantasy Faire SL

“Celebrating its ninth year, Fantasy Faire 2017 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, role-players and performers in the virtual world, bringing their own visions together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer.”

From the Fantasy Faire website

Unfortunately, Cancer is a disease that has touched all of us in some way it’s a very worthy cause and Second life hosts many events that support Relay for life.

 Visit the Totals page to see what SL events have earned for Relay For Life during the year: Sl Totals

This amazing creative colorful fantasy events end tomorrow builds are up through may 4th.. I hope you have had time to go see all the amazing builds and shop to support cancer research.

I didn’t get to spend as much time as I wanted to at Faire this year but that is a common occurrence in second life.  Time even in a virtual world is precious and gone too fast.

Enjoy what time you have as all too soon it may be gone.

The time I had to spend at fantasy faire I thoroughly enjoyed wandering around meeting people seeing the builds and yes shopping. lol I bought toys. I kind of have a thing for toys I buy particles and bubble blowers and recently even a ridable mesh horse. Hey it has to be fun right?

Now hop on it and run off to Faire tomorrow is its last day!

Niamh’s Journey

33915079612_12ee986357_b

Niamh’s Journey of Dreams

“Niamh’s Journey of Dreams” is a collaboration between the amazingly talented Cybelemoon and Ceakay Ballyhoo.

“Are you ready to follow Niamh?

Grand Opening Wed, April 19th, noon SL time

Caledonia Skytower, from Seanchai Library,

will be reading from the journey as we go.”

Niamh's Journey Invitation_Opening Poster

Cybele’s “Tales of the Tuatha” was chosen to be the inspiration for a new sim-wide installation on Mistwood Isle.

Ck’s previous work “The little girl and the forest beyond” was such a creative journey. Once I heard of her involvement in bringing one of Cybelemoon’s stories to “life: in Second Life I was so excited to see it!

“CK has tried to do justice to the original tales of Cybele’s blog and the accompanying pictures which make for the typical warm, fairytale feel that is Cybele’s style.

She’s had help from Elwyn Lorefield who has the amazing powers to script and create the effects much needed for the mysterious Firefly Forest!

Follow the story through the storyboards, click on them for the NCs with the text, and follow in Niamh’s path as she tries to retrieve all her lost dreams!”

Cybele Moon (Hana Hoobinoo) or the Dune Mouse, maintains a wanderer’s life in both worlds.

Cybele loves the telling of tales. She is drawn to both history and myth.

In real life, she photographs both dreamy landscapes and old stones, sometimes using an infrared camera. Her photos have been sold in art shops and displayed in a museum gallery – as well as a few galleries in the virtual world.

“I have a mix of SL and RL in my photos. For me, there is only a fine line between a perception of reality and a vision, and so, as with all things my work is constantly changing and evolving.”

“Ceakay Ballyhoo (CK) has been around SL for quite some time.

 Recently, she has shifted her focus from socializing to art.

First as a photographer, later combining photographs with atmospheric builds.

In 2016, she felt she was ready for a full installation and got a grant for a  LEA sim. For six months’ people were able to roam around in her Watercolor Wander, completely built out of watercolor paintings and watercolor textures.

Finally, having developed her own style and a fairly unique trademark, ideas were flying around again soon. Having your own world to wander around in is very inspirational and highly addictive!

It led to the installation The Forest Beyond which was on display from January till March 2017 and now to this joint effort with CybeleMoon.”

CK has an inworld gallery and an artwalk with collected art of fellow SL artists. Both can be reached by taking a tp from the Landing Point at Niamh’s Journey (UP).

The questions I had to umm coax out of him …

What is the sexiest thing a Fan has ever done for you?

I guess I need more fans cos im having trouble coming up with an answer

(sounds like you Jedheads need to get on this )

What color are your eyes?

I have brown eyes

How old is your favorite T shirt?

  • I have a lot of t-shirts. Picking a favorite would be like picking a favorite Dead or Phish song.
  • Don’t laugh, but I wear a lot of JLB t-shirts around the house, since I would never wear those outside.
  • One of my oldest shirts is a hand-made batik Phish shirt I got years and years ago in New Hampshire. I wore it at a few of our Phish Bowl concerts.

Iam so thrilled to see  Lil’ Frenchie elo‘s work at Commune Utopia!

Elo’s work ranges from seductive, mysterious, sensual, sexy, passionate, sad, restrained, bound, hidden, loving, raw and real. Elo evokes feeling with her work it is palatable. You can feel the emotions she portrays in each piece. Her passion comes roaring through as clearly as the random still calm shots do.

Elo always manages to stir feelings and emotions in me with her work.

Come on by and see how her incredibly beautiful talent affects you.

Commune Utopia hosts an opening party Saturday January 21st @ 1pm slt.

Here is your teleport.

“The delicacy of the female beauty captured in “A Ray of Light” belies the strong contrasts that create a sense of something almost too perfect to belong to the real world– thus belonging imminently to SL. “ taken from Yoru’s announcement at CU.
