Another concert in Second Life

Posted on Saturday, February 7, 2015 in My life

Last night I found time in my busy schedule (LOL) to attend a concert in Second Life. Actually, I had to postpone watching Shetland and again, I didn’t have time to chat with my fandom and vegan friends (I really need to find the time to do that soon). The concert was performed by Bara Johnson and Free Roos.

Swedish Bara Johnson became known to a bigger audience when he appeared in the Emmy nominated HBO documentary ‘When strangers click‘. He was discovered in Second Life but is now both a virtual and a real life performer (singer/songwriter). I wasn’t feeling well and haven’t been for a while now. Headaches, neck pain and a sore arm. I’m not sure what’s going on. I was afraid it was something to do with my medication or rather the condition and I’m taking it for, but I know I have a cold coming on, so it’s most likely that.

Back to the concert. When I heard that Bara Johnson was back in Second Life, I knew I’d have to make time to listen to him and his new partner and bandmate Free Roos.

Unfortunately, this evening, I managed to make a fool of myself (or rather my avatar did). I couldn’t find my dance animation for a while. Maybe no one noticed, but it felt incredibly awkward to just be standing around when everyone else was dancing. I found out that I had another performer’s group activated, meaning it showed above my avatar’s head. Actually, I saw that some other avatars had other groups activated as well, so again, maybe it wasn’t that serious, but I was embarrassed all the same. Then I managed to somehow jump in behind a sort desk (mixerboard?) to stand beside the ‘dj’ (that was just a bot, so she wouldn’t have noticed anyway), but still. Then finally, I managed to jump backwards out of the bar. It made me feel like a total newbie/noob.

Other than that, it was an enjoyable evening.

I’d expected Bara (real name Jonas) to speak like he comes from the north. It must have been the documentary that made me believe that, because at the time he was living up north. Actually, he speaks with a very ‘southern’ accent in Swedish, like the people in Wallander should do, but usually don’t (in Stockholm, apparently they imagine that people all over Sweden speak as they do). It must have been because he was speaking English in the documentary that I didn’t notice.

Another concert in Second Life

Tonight the whole family went to a Russell Eponym concert in Second Life.

This is my mom listening to the live music until she got ‘ants in her pants’ and wanted to leave.

This is my sister and I, who were able to stay the whole concert:

Another concert

Posted on Friday, August 22, 2014 in My life

Tonight I went to another concert in Second Life. This time my mom went with me. It was a fundraising concert with Simon & Garfunkel songs. It was fun, though it took my mom ages to get online on the mini laptop. I will definitely keep going to these events.

Me and my avatar

Posted on Saturday, August 16, 2014 in My life


Today, I was on a concert in the 3D world Metropolis. My avatar’s hair wasn’t rezzing, and I looked like a prisoner from a camp. It made me feel a bit embarrassed. A little later, I went to another concert in Second Life, and my mesh top wouldn’t rez. I felt embarrassed there too.

Funny how much you identify with your avatar. While I’m inworlds I AM my avatar.

The image is of me the way I look to myself. 🙂

A concert in Hypergrid

Posted on Monday, July 28, 2014 in My life

Tonight I went to a concert in Metropolis (Hypergrid). It had been ages since I last went to a concert or other event in a 3D world and back then it was usually in Second Life. The guy who had the concert is called Russell Eponym and he usually performs in InWorldz, Second Life and Third Rock Grid (where I’ve never been). It was nice. It brought back memories from when I used to dance for money in Second Life. Long story. LOL. I’ll probably be back next time he performs in Metro. I’m also going to search for other events in Second Life and in Hypergrid capable worlds.
