It was a fairly typical mid-February day in the Podex Exchange. Even though it was winter, people still had a need for Lindens, whether for clothes, a new look, or just tipping the local DJ. And so they kept coming. And this being February, there was another reason: Valentines Day. Men, and some women came by to get Lindens for the purpose of getting something for their sweetheart, whether it be flowers, jewelery, or renting a private place for a day or two. They made some good business up to and during February 14.
But Valentines Day wasn't the only reason people were getting Lindens. There were fundraising events, such as the Second Life science-fiction convention which collected cash for cancer research. Then there was the big party that took place shortly after Valentines Day: Mardi Gras. Coming so soon after the day associated with romance, Some were calling it the singles' counterpart of the better-known holiday. And people would spend money for fancy outfits, or in the case of the guys for beads.
It was at one point that the attention of the tellers was drawn to a couple visitors at the door. Both were women, but one didn't have any feet but instead from the waist down had a serpentine, snakelike body, wearing a black and red dress. The other was a bit more normal, having legs, but was covered in white fur with a tail and rounded ears. She was shorter, wearing a purplish dress, and a lot of beads.
"Um, can we help you?" one of the tellers asked.
"Yes," spoke the shorter lady, "We're going shopping to get dresses for tonight's party, and we're likely to need a few more Lindens."
"Certainly, Ma'am. Just fill out this short form, and we'll make the trade through Paypal, Ukash, direct bank transfer, Bitcoin Wallet, and a number of other ways ."
The two stepped over, the smaller lady walking and the taller using her tail to push herself over.
"British Pounds," the white-furred lady answered.
"Certainly. Just put down the ammount you wish to exchange for, and the transfer should just take a few minutes."
"I have a bit of currency in another virtual world," the taller woman asked, "I don't suppose I could bring some of that over?"
"We can transfer and exchange with several other virtual world currencies to Second Life Lindens. We added the Adult Grid, Mobius, and Lost Paradise not long ago."
It didn't take long at all for the exchange to be made, and the two ladies soon had their Lindens.
"There you go," the teller told them, "Please come again soon."
"We probably will. Too bad no one will throw us Lindens like these beads earlier."
"From a Mardi Gras parade?
"Yeah. One of the floats pushed me into the water. I had to take of my shirt to wring it dry, and all of a sudden the guys nearby started tossing these beads at us."
They had a good chuckle, and the women went on their way.
The Podex Exchange is located at the Coda sim at (45, 218, 61), with a website at http://www.podex.info/. Jacek Shuftan is the CEO. Besides Second Life Lindens, it deals in the currencies of nine other virtual worlds.

Frets Nirvana and other musicians took part in a benefit concert at Veterans Isle. The event ran from 5PM SL time to around 9PM (Midnight EST). Besides Frets, Zak Claxton, JimmyT29 Dukes, and Noma Faulta also took part.
A total of 181,500 Lindens were raised in the four hour live music event. The money will go to the Homes Four Our Troops charity.
At about the time Grease Coakes was reviewing the furry fox avatar from Avatar Planet, one of the Newser's readers informed us where to find another brand: Anthroxtacy. Often called "AX" for short, the company also had a club in addition to it's store. But sadly the place closed down and so did the only place many people knew of where they could get these particular avatars. Although no longer updated or with customer support, the avatars are available at a cheaper cost. Grease went over and got one, giving it a look-over.

Bay City residents are familiar with Uccello Poultry, or "Uccie" as she's commonly called. Besides being involved in local activities, such as her recent winning of the title "Miss Bay City," she also runs a blog about various things and doings, mostly about Second Life, "The Poultry Report." Adult content is part of her postings, such as the weekly "Topless Tuesday" posts. Unfortunately, such content is affected by a new policy of Blogspot, or Blogger, on which her blog runs. Starting March 23, all blogs that run under Blogspot that contain sexual content such as nude pictures or videos with bare breasts and sex organs or sexual activity will be listed as "private." This means they can been seen only by the blog's owner, or those with whom he or she has actively shared it with. This means that "The Poultry Report" would suddenly have a much smaller audience.
Rather than take down the "Topless Tuesday" and other nude pictures, Uccello made the decision to move her activity to a new location. Following her entry on Wednesday February 25, "The Poultry Report's" new posts will be at https://poultryreport.wordpress.com/.
Perhaps it is easier to objectify bare chests on women than it is on men and likely this will always be so. It is an erogenous zone, after all. And as much as I decry the inequality between men and women on this issue ... I can understand some of the reasoning behind Blogger's policy change. I can't help wonder, though, if Google/Blogger will crack down on violent images. Which is more harmful ... a picture of a woman's breast being caressed or one being carved at with a knife? Frequent exposure to anything will desensitize a person to the stimulus it provides. ... Frankly, I'd rather see more breasts ... Since my efforts with The Poultry Report have to been focus on Second Life I'll abstain from delving into the nanny state concept behind all of this. Perhaps I'll tackle it in the future if I can find an SL tie-in.
The Second Life Newser also uses blogspot as a platform, but as the publication has a "workplace safe" policy, Blogger's move will have no effect on who can view it.
Hopefully, Uccie's blog will do well at it's new location.

Thursday February 19 was "Best in Fire" at the classic rock club "The Vinyl." At 6PM, a number of residents dropped by to listen to the talented Perri Prinz spin a number of tunes in theme with the event. Most were wearing outfits to match the theme such as red or flame patters, or sporting demonic avatars or flame animations. The dance floor was also flickering with red hot flames, "Don't worry, it's concrete underneath."
DJ Perri played a number of smoking hot tunes, such as "Heat Wave," "Hot Line," "Disco Inferno," "Some Like it Hot," and Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire."
Love, is a burnin' thing,
And it makes, a firey ring.
Bound, by wild desire,
I fell, into a ring of fire.
I fell into a burnin' ring of fire.
I went down, down, down,
and the flames went higher.
And it burns, burns, burns,
the ring of fire, the ring of fire.
About two dozen attended the party that night. The prize that night for the best appearance in theme was raised to a red-hot $1250, of which Nikolinni Mhia was the winner.
"The Vinyl" has regular events held twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6 to 8 PM SL time, and is located in HV Community (67/207/4051) .
As the Dawn Spacecraft nears the dwarf planet Ceres, we are learning more about this enigmatic object out in the Asteroid Belt. We already know that it expels water plumes... Could it also hold a warm liquid water ocean under its surface? We will talk about why some things are called asteroids, but other things are called comets, and what the links between them are. We will also talk about different kinds of asteroids, and where they might all come from.
7 PM PST (SLT) Thursday at the Meridian Cafe!

On Thursday February 19, The Nisean Realms pony area held it's Lunar New Year event. Although a roleplay event for those in the community, visitors could attend as observers.
We are entering the Lunar New Year of the Ram (Horin: ahem, Ibex). Gather around the Ibexian Commons to take part in the festival, be part of the land's magic, and perhaps even see some fireworks.
Emperor Horin also showed off one of the new NPC pony constructs, to help give the impression of a more populated area when fewer residents are around. They certainly looked like a pony avatar, just completely still. One nearby local commented upon seeing it, "Daw! They look soo cyooot!"
As for the roleplay's plot, "Well, there was a bit of a surprise (for this character). Raikou Hake-sensei, who I've been attempting to catch- erm - speak to for some time now showed up. It wasn't a hitch, but it does move the story further along toward reversing some things and bringing the Spring of Knowledge back. You'd know that character as Amehana." What had happened to the spring? "It's disappearance is linked to the desertification of the area around the Ibexian capital (the desertification isn't shown in sim beyond the stepps looking drier than the coast). During the reign of my father the land became unhappy and started to withdraw the magic around the capital keeping the area more fertile. As time passed it continued. When I won the throne I made some decisions due to grief that further displeased the land. It is my hope that working with Raikou will unlock the key to fixing things."
And so the adventures at the Nisean Realms continue

Besides the "Samedi Gras" parade in the city streets, it seems the 1920s New Orleans themed community of New Toulouse held a "Lundi Gras" parade in the waters of the bayou. Several boats, rafts, and other things that floated took part in this aquatic version of the Mardi Grads parade. The proclaimed "King of the Carnival" King Blake proclaimed:
It is commanded that the residents of New Toulouse and all who visit her adhere to the following decree:
… that the residents and observers of the capital city shall embrace this evening’s riverine pageantry and put forth their great determination in attending the magnificent spectacle of maritime craft that shall sail upon the great Missedabracket River;
… that a local priest shall preside over the ceremony at its commencement for the blessing of the fleet and to ensure our entrusted fishers, trawlers, piscators, and those with rod and reel a safe and bountiful season;
… that those in gracious attendance shall show no tolerance and put forth their licentious efforts in the bountiful spirits, grandeur, and pleasures that await following the evening ceremony.
Nikita Weymann of the community newsletter "The Tattler" described the event:
This old bird has seen a lot of odd things floating in the waters of New Toulouse, but on Lundi Gras there was a new addition to the flood of Carnival activity: the Krewe du Canard held a little bayou regatta. The vessels were varied, ranging from Blake Palmer’s fishing boat, to Henri Godenot’s float-styled pirogue, to whatever sort of Jules Verne-type craft the Whitefalcons were piloting. Admiral Callidus Waydelich showed up in an inner tube; one would suspect the Mondragons had more impressive naval technology than that, especially after seeing that flying elephant float they made for Samedi Gras.
The parade sailed along the river, amusing the spectators on the deck of the Mama Cree. Then the Duck Armada sailed back to its home pond, and the krewe members went to the Toulouse Caboose, where they proceeded to get polluted. DJ Q got them dancing, Doc Avalon got them drinking, and Lundi Gras may never be the same, especially if the boat parade becomes a regular Carnival event.

Yours truly had a busy weekend in Second Life, from the Roma Lupercalia, to the opening party of Paint Second Life Purple, to the Second Life Science Fiction Convention, and Marianne McCann's Rezzday party, and more.
So much to see, and so little time to write about it. Before yours truly could explain things in detail, it was time to rest up for his day job in real life for Monday. So the scoop on what happened sadly will have to wait.
Burn2 is pleased to announce the upcoming event Burnal Equinox, which takes place March 27 through 29th this year. The Theme is "Balance."
Equinox is the time when the day and night are of equal length. It is also the start of both Spring (Northern Hemisphere) and Autumn (Southern Hemisphere). In the virtual world, we can mix all things together, so we can have bats flying down to sip the nectar from the new spring flowers in the daytime, or autumn leaves transforming into buterflies at night. Our only limitation is our imagination.
This event is a short but bright and exciting burst on the calendar. It will feature new and experienced artists, live musicians, DJs, and performers all working to an interesting theme. All are welcome to join the celebration.
Artists and builders are invited to sign up for a plot and build to the theme. DJs, live musicians, and performers are also welcome to apply to play during the event weekend.
Please let us know when you have included us in your publications as we link back to online TV, magazine and blog posts at Http://www.burn2.org/media_coverage. We would love to include you! Just email a link to your content to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll include it.
Burn2 is the virtual extension of the Burning Man festival and community into the world of Second Life. It spreads Burning Culture and the Burning Man Ten Principles all year round. Burn2 is one Burning Man regional, out of more than 100 first world Regional groups.
We encourage you to use the following labels and hashtags when you write about the event: Burn2, #burn2. We will promote those tags to make it easier for people to find your content.

Frets Nirvana, the premier guitar artist in the virtual world Second Life and the US Military Veterans Group announce the the second benefit in 2015 in Second Life for the Veterans Support Organization, Home For Our Troops .
Frets Nirvana states: “HFOT is a privately funded 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization building specially adapted, mortgage-free homes nationwide for the most severely injured Veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. Most of these Veterans are multiple amputees, paraplegic, quadriplegic or suffered severe traumatic brain injury (TBI). These homes restore some of the freedom and independence our Veterans sacrificed defending ours, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives. Since its inception in 2004, over 90 cents of every dollar spent by Homes for Our Troop has gone to directly support Veterans. ”
Home for Our Troops benefit concerts feature premier Second Life talent monthly at Veteran’s Isle. The concert on February 22, 2015 is scheduled from 5-9 PM PST. Featured artists will be Zak Claxton, JimmyT49 Dukes, Frets Nirvana and Noma Falta.
ABOUT HOMES FOR OUR TROOPS - HFOT builds homes as a departure point for Veterans to rebuild their lives, and once again become highly productive members of society. Despite their life-altering injuries, many Veterans have embarked on new careers, completed their college degrees, or started families. Empowered by the freedom a mortgage-free and specially adapted home brings, these Veterans can now focus on their recovery and return to their life’s work of serving others. Many have embraced their roles as motivational speakers, sharing their messages of persevering through tragedy with groups and classrooms around the country; others take to a national platform to promote awareness of veteran suicide, homelessness and PTSD. Their incredible stories are the driving force for the work for HFOT.

For those whom want their Ash Wednesday religious services reflected in Second Life, a few builders have made some ash cross marks, which are actually avatar tattoos. Among them, a freebie one by Edd Thor.
Tattoo layers are required. A selection of ten. Ash Wednesday is observed by some denominations as the beginning of the time of preparation for Easter. A cross made of ashes may be placed on the forehead, perhaps with the words, "Remember you are dust, and to dust you shall return." To the best of my knowledge, the church clip art from which these crosses are derived are public domain. If this is an error, please notify me (Edd Thor). Please distribute these as you wish throughout the Second Life communities.
The tattoo can be found on Marketplace (Here).

Entering the year of the Ibex (or Ram, or Sheep, but this is Ibex, and so the Ibex insert themselves wherever they can).
The Ibex Empire, Ibex Empire (177, 166, 25)
* * * * *
The Solar New Year has already happened in Ibex. Not everyone goes by that calendar though. Many Ibexians go by the Lunar Calendar. Thus Ibexians tend to celebrate both. The Lunar New Year tends to be a bigger affair since the Solar new year has so many things that happen around it to drown that celebration out.
The Ibexians honor the Lunar Pearl by gathering for moon viewing together and the enjoyment of feasting. It is traditional to compose haiku or poetry honoring the moon and her beauty. Moon and/or star related fashion and food are common. Those of the Starlight Samurai division may be seen in ceremonial procession with the Crystal Priests and the carrying around the country of the Lunar Orb, a very large perfect fire opal sphere. Musicians and singers perform their odes while dancers dance. In some towns of the empire special songs are performed via the clashing of horns, and for these even the kirins are sometimes seen partaking.
This will be an In-Character event, though spectators are welcome. If someone would like to DJ and collaborate songs for the stream or over voice (that are in keeping with either the Japanese, Chinese, Mongolian, Ainu, or Tribal African music styles, or are moon related but do not fit these) then please feel free to contact Amehana Ishtari. Performers are welcome.
This event culturally also facilitates the average Ibexian (and guests) in being allowed to assist in care of the main crystal of the land through an ancient process. In combining the chi (energy) of the love in the hearts of Ibexians, the light of the moon, the wisdom of the living of life seated in the mind and expressed through calligraphy brush, motion, and mouth a special type of energy then is gathered into the Lunar Orb and passed into the main crystal.
Word is that both Raikou and Emperor Horin plan to attend. If both actually do show then some very important events for the land will start unfolding as time goes on. The Imperial Treasury may even be dispensing special amulets created specifically for this year's events for attendants.
For best enjoyment make sure that you set your viewer to midnight. Although set for two hours on here it may run longer, or not. Scheduled at this hour so as not to risk conflicting with events for the Trotsdale Library.
Be watching. Raikou and Horin will soon be embarking on their quest to rebalance Ibex and reverse the in-lore desertification around the capital area. Part of the roleplay will revolve around the Capstone rune, but there will also be some adventuring required to gather particular items and artifacts. Those interested can send when they are most available so that semi-regular session can be scheduled.

Visible Woman?" Well, like so many builders, she's still at it. She recently sent me a "Le Smart T-shirt" Coming in three sizes of Mesh, it's actually a couple dozen shirts in one.
Her interest in child avatars goes beyond just clothing. She developed a racing group with child avatars in mind, the "SL Kids Racing Association." It has a racetrack at the Nightshark sim at (43/58/3511), and a Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/SLKRA?pnref=story
Beckye, in either form, is still at work.
