Video by Nitwacket, Tuesday July 27. Last weekend, Raglan Shire had it's annual Woodstock tribute, the "Woodstock." The fifteenth event of it's kind, the sim was packed with over 90 avatars. Among the performers on Sunday was Keeba and the Tiny Maniacs.
You are invited to an exclusive event on July 29 at 3PM-7PM (Pacific Time).
The entire presentation is 30 minutes, but hang out after to chat in Second Life! Attendees will see the teaser trailer debut, poster reveal and get a first look at the documentary "Attack of the Doc!" with host Chris Gore. Spots are limited, so don’t miss out!
Talking to Chris Gore (and getting the okay to use the conversation, he was enjoying his time in Second Life, "This is cool!" He went on to say, "We do plan to do other events in here. ... We're planning monthly events starting in September. No date set, but pay attention on social media to find out."
While the event was listed in the official blog, it was under "Highlights of the Second Life Destination Guide." So those checking out the blog would notice it while those who just peeked at secondlife.com wouldn't know about it without clicking further.
The Film Threat theater is at Film Threat A/(133/6/23). It's unknown how long the teaser will keep playing.
More about the event later.
Over the last two weeks, the ACS community in Second Life have cast their votes for the theme of the 2022 Relay For Life of Second Life.
259 votes were cast, making this the largest community decision on a theme in our event’s history. This is a good indicator for how excited everyone is about reaching our $500,000 USD goal.
Each year, our theme guides our motivation, inspires our creativity, and gives each season a unique identity. Considering the fact that our goal for next year is the highest we’ve ever set, we know that it will take a “super-heroic” effort from everyone in the ACS community.
This theme can be interpreted in so many ways, all of which are going to make for an unforgettable Relay season and event. The theme that received the most votes is the perfect description for each member of our community. We can’t wait to see how each team embraces our 2022 Relay For Life of Second Life theme: HEROES OF HOPE.
Among the other choices, "Hope Floats" came in second with 27% of the vote. Third was "Decades of Hope" with 12.7%. "Toon Out Cancer" was fourth with 11.3%. And fifth was "Lights, Camera, Hope" with 10.8%.
Chatting with a few in RFL team Sunbeamer chat, there was a little surprise about the choice made, but general agreement that there was plenty of room with the theme to work with. As to why "Lights Camera Hope" came out last, more than one commented perhaps this was a reflection of peoples' opinions of Hollywood and movies in recent years.

For the Bay itself, one notable change is the addition of a mass transit monorail system in the city.the name that started appearing over a year ago on the sim before it changed.

A few days ago, it was announced Ranchan had tested positive for Coronavirus while at the hospital to take care of something completely unrelated. Fortunately symptoms were very mild, and the doctors decided it was okay for her to go home.
Ranchan runs the HV Community sim which contains the Robotech roleplay she GMs, the Xanadu classic rock club, and the SL Newser office.
