H.G. Wells Exhibit Focuses on the Writer and his Science Fiction Contributions

HG Wells exhibit_001-Start at the front wall to learn about his childhood and his education.

–By Netera Landar

How many of you remember the movie, “The Time Machine,” and “War of the Worlds?” The man behind the possibility of moving forward in time without a ship and an alien invasion was H.G. Wells. Those who dared to think outside of the box, to create novels that went beyond the question of “what if,” inspired generations to come.

Being a time travel/SF/paranormal author, not only do I respect Wells’ message, I have so many more questions that extended beyond “why?” Had I the opportunity to travel back in time to speak to Wells, I would ask him why haven’t we learned the lessons of past generations to stop creating new wars? Would we be generate parallel worlds if we altered time with even one event? What if all the libraries of the world were closed and the only form of instruction came in the disc you suggested? How can you safeguard language so it isn’t forgotten? Who forgot to pack the darn instructions to the discs? What books did you grab before you returned to the future? Why did early SF authors think aliens wouldn’t have a more human-like form? Why are they all bugs?

Learn about H.G. Wells at Netera’s Coffee Shop on Snug Harbor. Click on the teleport door to go upstairs to our exhibit or take the staircase on the side of the building. Share your comments about what questions you would ask H.G. Wells had you the opportunity to speak with him.

Russian Community Opens Black Orchid Club On Snug Harbor in Second Life

Ebony and gray tones dominate the formal setting. Here color adds glamour and sophistication.

By Netera Landar

With the grand opening of Black Orchid night club, it’s clear to see that the sim values an international community. The Russians feel at home here having met Snug Harbor’s owner, Ty Lomes, back in 2010. Shortly after, they opened a Russian Park on the sim.

“Nehama is a Russian singer who also enjoys popular English songs. She not only is a DJ here, she owns and operates the club. You can often find her performing on the Titanic here in SL. She has a voice like Marlene Dietrich,” said Lomes. “The building was created by Inga Zaenta, who also made the airport here.”

The other DJs filling the entertainment schedule are: Vishenka on Sunday and Chychelka on Friday. Nehama is there on Tuesdays. The DJs play popular songs in Russian and some American tunes from 10 a.m. to noon SL time.

The club is open to the public, as well. You can visit it through the teleport system located in front of the Dance Emporium on Snug’s boardwalk. It’s located at Snug Harbor – Dance Emporium – Black Orchid Club – Snug Harbor 115, 133, 3801. Make sure to dress formally and wear your translator so you can interact with those in the club.

Check Out Sky Blue Yonder at Snug Harbor

Snug Harbor Blogger

When Ty said there was a new venue on Snug Harbor, we were thrilled. More music is always a good thing. So first chance I got, I IM’d Quinn Mallory1974, the owner of the venue Sky Blue Yonder and asked for an interview. He agreed and I immediately stated that I loved the idea of an airship being a venue. It’s not something you see in SL’s music scene. You might see a space base, but this was different and deserved your attention.

“Sky Blue Yonder was created about two months ago,” said Quinn, back in August. “Logi Arizona (Logan.Weder) created it. In my six years of running venues and going to them I have never seen an airship venue before so I thought it would be great idea.”

He couldn’t name all the venues he owned, but managed to recall a few: The Clock Tower Venue, The Lighthouse and Guthries 2. High on his list of important things as a venue owner are making everyone feel as if it’s their second home and to provide great music. His greatest supporter is his partner Vivian Baxter, who lends a hand in helping him host.

The venue schedule features: Paris Cloyd at 8PM SLT on Mondays; Joe Paravane at 7 AM SLT on Tuesdays; Jon Regent, Fridays at 8 AM SLT; RoseDrop Rust on Fridays at 9 AM SLT and Fabs Keytarman on Sundays at 7 AM SLT.

Asked what he loves about running a venue, Quinn replied, that he can present a special place for people to come to listen to their favorite musicians. He learned about Snug Harbor from Barby Celtic Warrior, a long time performer and renter on Snug Harbor.

Quinn’s introduction to virtual worlds began when he was looking for 3D chat programs instead of Paltalk or MIRC. He stumbled on Second Life by chance. In time, he learned the ins and outs of this world through various strangers he met in sandboxes.

Small Plane Airstrip and Vintage Field House added to new Snug Harbor sim

Snapshot_004

You probably thought there was nothing else Snug Harbor owner Ty Lomes can add to make the nautical sim any better and bang he adds something new. Tucked away on sim 9 is a wave-splashing, vintage themed beach that looks like time never altered it. Thanks to the contributions of Pearl Sweetwater and  Ingazaentz, the retro-looking beach will be a great new hang out. Residents will have the opportunity to host parties, while visitors can rez a surf board and ride the wave after joining the navigator group. Pearl was responsible for adding three kickin’ new waves and Inga built a unique field house and terraformed the land. Grab an ice cold pop from the vintage color and chill on Snug Harbor beach.

Snapshot_007

Snapshot_008

You won’t find your standard field house here. Inga has incorporated a historical military theme in a mural, gun-metal gray salvaged ship parts for the counter and check out the small plane above.

So why the new playground?

According to Ty, he was ready for expansion. This is about as far as he can go North at this longitude. It became an estate corner and he wanted to add a new beach and a bigger wave. It’s a great new way to make it a more interesting place for all that walk on the shore.

“I was going to make it accessible by road, instead of boardwalk and someone told me why don’t you put in an airstrip. I said okay, but when you put in an airstrip you have to figure out what to put at the end of it. The building process took about a month. We ended up putting in a little field house and a place big enough to turn your plane around,” he said as we talked on the new stretch of beach on a Saturday afternoon. He added, “And only for small planes. I didn’t want a big airport. You can land here now and you can ride the wave.”

Snapshot_011

Snapshot_012Ty said it’s suppose to appear retro themed, like it’s been well used and been there forever. Inga, a Russian speaker, set out the nautical items arranged on the beach and created  the vintage field house and Pearl did the break-neck waves, water current and the rocks on the shore.

Inga’s plane awaits its pilot.

Snapshot_013

Two new properties are available near the air strip. Perfect to watch planes take off and land or to personally fly your own small plane.

Taking fun to a new level, Ty and Inga are introducing Easter Island. Think cultural versus paintball and you and your friends  can easily clock in an SL hour of this real life game with a virtual twist. Though it hasn’t had an official opening and rules aren’t yet posted, everyone is invited to teleport up  there. You’ll find teleports near the dance emporium in the town area.

No mystery to how these were moved here.

The Marvelous Melodies of MillTycoon: Classical Lessons to Children’s Theater

Tags

, , ,

Snapshot_008

Conducting interviews with musicians in my Snug Harbor coffee shop is simply wonderful. For one, its a perfect opportunity to have an uninterrupted, one-to-one conversation with a talented individual. I have learned about their musical background and influences, if they’ve performed in real life and if they are songwriters, as well.

Snapshot_010I had recently caught up with MillTycoon, who had been a guest on my former chat when it was held on Terric. I had accepted an invitation to one of his Second Life gigs and returned it with an interview request. Mill is quite talented as a pianist and he interacts well with his audience.

In real life, Mill calls California home and he told me that he’s been performing since he was 13 years old. He doesn’t remember a time without music. Those early classical lessons from 7 to 12 years old and jazz from 12 to 16, were taken with a little coaxing by his parents. As for his love of musical theater, “The Sound of Music,” and “Annie” were his favorites musicals and still hold a special place in his heart.

How it began….”I could play the piano, so I managed to get some performances in a children’s theater and at parties,” he explained, tapping into his memories of those early years. “Mostly things were set up by my family in one way or another. I always could play by ear, so when left to my own devices, I would also play rock. Bruce Springsteen was a big favorite of mine at the time.”

Then came compiling his mental database of music…Firing up his playlist were cassette tapes for birthday presents and listening to the Top 100 popular songs on the radio.

“I could play every big hit on the radio from 1984 by the end of the year,” he said.

Though, when it came to advancing his education, music wasn’t his major. He focused on American Studies as an undergrad.

Mill stated, “Sort of a general Liberal Arts degree, which covered classes in American movies, history, literature, demographics, and a music minor, which was sort of curtailed. And then I got a PhD in Music years later.”

He explained that his education was one of the rare cases of a student who didn’t have a music major degree as an undergrad, then decided to apply for a PhD. His master’s degree was included into that larger degree, so he had nothing until he had a PhD.

“I taught as a TA (teacher’s assistant)  for the university for several years, then some community classes, as well as piano and voice lessons, which I still teach,” he told me.

Mill stated that he heard about musicians performing in Second Life, but he hadn’t explored it until his girlfriend wanted to come in-world to sell some of her merchandise.

He doesn’t recall how he began performing here just that he did a search for venues with a piano and started asking the owners if they needed a piano player. He confessed that it took three months before someone hired him. His girlfriend and Kyle Bronsdon, a piano player, taught him the technical aspects in order to perform in a virtual world.

“They helped me when I was starting out,” he admitted. “I would go to Kyle’s venue and hear him all the time.”

On Second Life, Mill has rezzed a little upright, but for about three years now, he’s been playing a white grand piano. (Who wouldn’t like to play one?)

“In real life, I have a digital piano called a Korg M50, which is hooked into a mixer with my microphone, and then into the back of the computer,” he explained, adding that he asks for open-ended requests and attempts to play anyone. “Tony Bennett, Katy Perry, Patsy Cline, Tom Watts, songs from Miss Saigon, The Cars, Weezer. I play wherever people direct me. I play by ear so a lot of songs are easy, and I work hard to learn and maintain the rest of them. I have a giant book of condensed lyrics that I made, sprinkled with notes all over the margins so I don’t forget certain things.”

As for his performance schedule on Second Life, he plays five gigs every two weeks, only one of which is weekly. So that gives him a little time to hear his favorite Second Life artists, such as Jeffah, Isabella Rumsford, Sing, Luciano, Kyle Bronsdon, Mamaa Sais, and Jen Waddington. Sassy, co-proprietor of CYD Productions, is his manager.

He also has written about 130 songs throughout his life. But his serious writing endeavors actually began in 2004. Mill has five albums worth of material that had been developed from that point on, including a brand new album that was due to come out when I interviewed him.

For 29 years, he’s entertained an audience. What does music mean to him?

He’ll tell you, “Its hard for me to say what music means, since it’s always been in my life and I have never known life without it. I get songs stuck in my head for hours quite often. It is almost like asking someone what food means to them. There is great food and there is filler, but it’s a constant in life.”
