The Spirit of SL

dancing at the FogboundI have been determined to get inworld and visit some of the great seasonal sites as well as catch up – again – with friends. My day had been somewhat up and down. A VERY good up was news from my surgeon about my foot. *smile* His words were music to my ears: Push it Ahuva – USE that foot, wear shoes. At this point you’ll do more harm by NOT using than by OVER using it. Yes! Since I’d already managed to get into a pair of boots with 2.5 inch heels, that was both reward and incentive. *laughing* Those 2.5 inch heeled boots are my “flats”, btw.

fogbound at ChristmasLogging in I got more UP day. Hunter was on and we chatted for a bit. I don’t remember the last time we both were on with a few moments to relax and catch up. While we were saying “bon apetit” in parting, Patricia Anne logged in. Oh my, I don’t think PA and I have talked since perhaps the summer. Maybe even the spring. It seems like years. We had a great time chatting and catching up on both RL and SL. I’d been listening to Taunter while I chatted. She was singing at a formal attire venue so I had a chance to take one of my gowns out of inventory. :) The risque brown one that would never ever work for me in the material world. Was lovely, as always, to listen to Taunter sing. When she was done, I headed to Fogbound, my home away from home when it’s NOT Friday night. (Then home away from home is Tribeca, of course.)

Once there, I saw more friends – Mae and Yanik. *smile* Bob was playing great Blues and the mood was perfect. Y joined me shortly after I arrived, so I got up to dance! We also had a LOT of catching up to do. I guess that’s true for me for all my friends. Since the last time I managed to get in was nearly 2 weeks ago, there’s a lot to cover.

Alessandra with the red boots onAs we danced I did the usual cam-around-the-room. I noticed a great looking pair of red boots. So nice, I thought I might like to find a pair for myself. I clicked on a boot and checked the object profile and took a screen shot for future reference. For the record: N&N City boots by candice OHare! I IM’d Alessandra, she of the lovely red boots, and told her I thought her boots were great! She said thank you and I said you’re welcome. I smiled, thought no more on it, and continued chatting with Y. Well. I saw an incoming box and checked. Alessandra had gifted me with a pair of the boots!!!!!! So generous! A simple compliment generating such a thoughtful gesture.

Yes, there may be griefing. Yes, there are trolls who announce unpleasant things in the local chat. Yes, SL has its share of not so pleasant beings. But SL also has the beautiful lovely people who reach out and make the world a happier place to be. Thank you SO much, Alessandra! You are a star!

Cutting Loose on a Weeknight

weeknight dancing shhhh. Don’t tell anyone. I slipped inworld, met a friend, and spent the night dancing. Ahhhhh. That felt GOOD. We were listening to Taunter rock Key West.

Loving the Live Music

I joined two more music groups last night! I don’t know where I have been that I have never heard of Taunter Goodnight before (doesn’t that sound like a James Bond name?) but oh my! what a huge oversight that was!! Taunter is FANTASTIC!! Superlative. Wonderful. Amazing. I was looking for something to do last night, chatting with Lalo to see what music might be happening (we have discovered that we both enjoy following the good music around the grid). As we chatted, my Live Music Enthusiasts group posted:

Taunter Goodnight LIVE @ the Drunken Drow! 5pm!!!!
Pure honey dripping with sultry seduction…! She will seduce you with her renditions of Pop, Blues, Classic and Alternative Rock!

I said “let’s try something different, this sounds good”. So we headed off to the Drunken Drow.

I thought I’d been there before, but if I have, either it’s been remodeled or I didn’t cam about. I’m SURE I’d have remembered the aquarium. I do like fish. :) It’s a great venue. I KNEW I was on the right track when I saw Lin Ochs tp in. Lin owns a great music venue himself: Up the Creek in Houses. I am there regularly for my Komuso Tokagawa fix. I see Lin at other venues as well so I know we have similar musical tastes. Lin promised I would not be disappointed and oh my was he right. Yes, Taunter OWNS Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”. As well as several Bonnie Raitt tunes, and Linda Ronstadt and yes, she even does a fantastic job on ZZTop’s “Tush”, just to name a few. Ah, Taunter, I think I’m in love. *grin*

Not only does Taunter sing in a rich, warm, solid, pitch-perfect voice, but she has great crowd banter as well. So not only do you love the singing, but you are smiling and grinning from the chat as well. I met the host of Drunken Drow, Raredread Nightfire, a charming gentleman. All in all it was a wonderful wonderful evening and I know that I will be back there.

After a great performance like that, sometimes it’s hard to go and hear other music. But the night was still young and there was still time for dancing and chat, so we headed over to FogBound, which seems to be turning into my home-away-from-home these days. :) There was more live music happening there: BigJim Allerhand and Tabasco Delicioso (BigJim Adam and John Stilwagen in RL). They played some amazing “swampy” blues. Great voice, fantastic music, and again great crowd banter and rapport. So what else can a gal do but join the group so she can follow them about?

SL is full of incredibly wonderful live music. Get out there (in here?) and listen.
