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.”

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).

Virtual Relationships

29267033674_f71be2418a_b

Virtual Relationships

The word Virtual is an adjective its meaning has evolved with technology’s advance in our world. One Virtual definition is being in effect but not in fact or name or close to but not quite something. A new definition describes virtual as existing or occurring on computers or on the Internet.

Close to but not quite something would imply that a virtual relationship isn’t real. I would disagree with this in many ways, your experience of something you believe is always real. An emotional exchange can have the same effects on the psyche in virtual space as in physical space. Sharing time, love, humor and fun virtually can exude warmth and connection even virtually.

Friendships and romantic relationships have been and are more frequently being forged virtually. In some ways, a virtual relationship requires more thought and effort as subtle visual cues are nonexistent. In some ways, more open in communication possibly due to the illusion of protection or distance may make it easier to share deeper feelings and thoughts.

Pillow Talk

An intimate conversation about Love, Sexuality and Relationships

One of the most fascinating things within our virtual world are the connections we make with others, often we meet people we would not easily encounter in our regular lives or experiment with lifestyle choices and relationship styles.

Building friendships and love relationships on a virtual base has many benefits and also, its own unique challenges. With the freedom to explore our desires many more options open up to us and we are able to learn about ourselves and grow as individuals and gain beautiful experiences.

We would like to talk about all sorts of topics this brings up, have a discussion and an exchange of experiences and perspectives.

Let’s connect on a more intimate level, we invite you to join us

Commune Utopia Pillow Talk Location

YES Live Blindboy Gumbo

http://www.leegibsonmusic.org

YES!

Blindboy Gumbo is back!

Wednesday March 15th live @ Commune Utopia 11am

Your ride to the show click here.

Northern Englishman Blindboy Gumbo is a songwriter who blends an urban mix of slide guitar and Rock, with a hint of Alternative Country into an exciting spicy gumbo within an acoustic setting that is both familiar and inviting.

This Geordie knows how to use classic inspirations, to fuel a new generation of tunes to leave you with eargasms.

I Find Blindboy Gumbo to be a totally impressive musician.

Blindboy is an original songwriter, who is very creative and quite a talented and skilled slide guitarist.

He has a huge sense of humor, quite a sexy accent and a incredibly swank fashion style.

These things all combine to make him and his show memorable in every way!

Once you hear and experience Blindboy you will be hooked he shares a glimpse of his soul at every show and it is wild, moody, beautiful and rough! (in my opinion)

This Video Project Scifi is done by Fushia Nightfire

Featuring Blindboy Gumbo’s Everyday Life.

“Any performer capable of bringing soulful melody to a song about an adult toy is one worth listening to, and Blindboy Gumbo’s cheeky sense of humor defines his on-stage presence – along with his gruff and graveled voice and the kick of his slide guitar. All just part of his irresistible Northern UK charm” Willow Caldera
