DJ DOC aka Holocluck Henly

On Saturday, June 22, DJ Doc aka Holocluck Henly of RFL ADvocacy played a special set of NERDTUNES, a mix of scifi and movie music, novelties, parodies, cult favorites and more. The venue was Merciless Ming’s at the SciFi Con. What a great set and we hope Doc will spin more again in the near future!

This was the 6th year of the Second Life SciFi convention with six regions of pure scifi bliss and many many scifi based RFL teams with booths. If you didn’t make it, put the event on your calendar for next year!

One World, One Fight – Foundation Org

I would love to showcase one of the many amazing teams taking part in Relay For Life of Second Life, a team from Brazil called Foundation Organization for Life.

Foundation For Life_002

This is their second year participating in our Relay group and I have attended many of their events.  I do have to say, they bring a very unique flavor and style to their events.

Like all of us, they too have been touched by cancer, and like all of us, could not stand still.  They chose to fight alongside all of us.

Foundation For Life_003

Foundation Org is captained by Luna Portio (lunavonrandolf Kenin) and is a tightly knit group of friends.  Geez, do they know how to party!  They bring some of the best music to the fight which has you asking: who needs a vacation when you can TP to a Foundation event.  Absolutely wonderful.

For me, what is amazing about Foundation Org is the noise they make on Facebook and I strongly recommend you check their group out and given them a “Like” at this group link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/166247130149474/?fref=ts

Foundation Org has also created a website, where they host a pile of info about the team, pictures of their events and even video.  http://foundorgforlife.webs.com

Coming from Brazil, English is not their native language, so communications doesn’t come easy to them, in a group populated mostly by Americans, Canadians and Europeans. But like all of us in Relay, we stand tall to challenges.  Some of us are learning Portuguese, others use the tools at hand available in SL, in the way of translators. One of the ones I found is from Metanomics available on Marketplace for $20L and has come in very handy on more than one occasion during my time on the committee. https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Metanomics-Translator-v21/4416485?id=4416485&slug=Metanomics-Translator-v21

Foundation For Life_001

I urge you to stop by a Foundation Org event, fill their kiosks with your Linden Loving and support a very hard working and caring team of Relay fighters. What better way to demonstrate our understanding that we understand, cancer is a world fight.

Plans do go wrong

WoW, just made it through a crazy week and looks like, that is not going to change for the next two as I try to juggle all the items on my plate.

As some of you know, I am a mature college student, taking an advertising and marketing program and I am down to the wire with the last few weeks of the course, so the workload is at heavy, as it will ever get.  And if that not enough, I am still actively trying to do what I can, with my team for Relay For Life of Second Life.

This past week, my part of the RFL ADvocacy team, held two events.

The first was a multi team event held with the team of Aether Chrononauts called the RFL Cartoon Caper of SL was people were encouraged to wear cartoon avatars.

The second was an idea Aryon Dagger presented to me, centered on the idea that this year being the 100th anniversary of the American Cancer Society, to host a Formal Birthday Ball.

Formal_019

Now as anyone knows, the best plans do often go astray, and both events had their measure of that.

At the Cartoon Capers, Aryon Dagger‘s DJ program decided to eat the play list and only play sound effects and was not able to perform the task at hand.

At the Formal Birthday Ball, the area we had set up the venue was on a different parcel to the one I had access to and didn’t discover my error, until the time it can to start the event. This oversight required me to move the whole venue across the sim and in so doing, lost the dance machine we had for the event.

However, the incredible thing about the people in Relay For Life of Second Life, is they are more than willing to help out and bless them all, helped pull off both events with grace and in the end, made both even a success. I am so humbled for everyone’s contribution in my time of need and crisis.

In the case of the Capers, DJ Al Red Rider stepped in to cover for Aryon time slot and I own him a debt of gratitude.

In the case of the Formal dance Gem Sunkiller and Sasha Fairywren team Captain of Team Shadow, both stepped in, to offer the guest a ride on their dance hud and we carried on, to what turned out to be another wonderful event for the team.

Holocluck Henly and his team members of RFL ADvocacy, have been busy too. Together we raised about $20,000 lindens this past week, and I am so delighted with everyone efforts.

However, the big and most delightful surprise was came from Jennifer Wolf when she was at a local event and the subject of Convio came up. Being the person she is, quickly put it out that she had a Convio account for her efforts in Relay, and bless her and her cousin’s best friend, donated $200 USD to the team.

I do have to say again, I am so thankful for everyone efforts and thankful for those that step in, to help in a moment panic, to carry the torch forward. I do not have the words to express my gratitude for what this did. Just saying thank you, just does not cut it.

But I also know, that at the core, this is the root of the One Team Ideal, that is Relay.

We are all in this for one reason, to do what we each can, for the HOPE we all carry in Relay. We are in this fight together, and problem is just another word for challenge, and challenges are to overcome, so that we all move forward as one. In this, I am delighted to do my little part and being a part of something, that is so big as the global fight to end this thing, called cancer.

Another Weekend Fun

Another crazy weekend around Relay For Life.

Friday had us over at AXtion 3 for a most excellent live concert by Lightning Strikes with their tribute performance of The Bangles and the place was hopping. Besides their Friday night parties, AXtion 3 has live events booked every Saturday, Mondays and Wednesdays. So hit them up for a group invite to catch them, when they pay tribute to your favorite band.

Saturday and Sunday was a Country Music Fest Teams R Us event with nonstop music and fun on two sims. RFL ADvocacy had a stall complete with a Beam Bag Toss game, some wonderful cakes made by the amazing Cherish, a roaring fire to warm up by and lots of coffee to keep everyone going.

Holocluck Henly held a 7 Seas fishing derby and had a great turn out, wish I could have caught it. Once I catch up with him, I’ll get some pictures hopefully. Hugs thanks Doc!

Country Music Jam, RFL TRU 2 (53, 219, 22) - Moderat

The highlight for me, was watching and listening to my dear friend Aryon Dagger do a set on Saturday night.

Aryon_001

The unfortunate part for me is that this was Easter weekend and was busy with family dinner on both days. Saturday I drove my folks to my brother place for the day and Sunday to my sisters for dinner. So I only managed to catch about 3 hours of the Country Music Fest.

And poor Panza weekend was a bit frustrating when on Saturday a storm blew though her area and knocked out the power for the remaining of the day and on Sunday when she lost her internet.

Guess that life in the virtual world for ya.

The Second Life Cheerleading Squad is a virtual cheerleading team dedicated to bringing Spirit and Fun to the residents of Second Life.

Started in 2007 by Christi Charron, the SLCS has blossomed into the largest and most successful Cheerleading group within Second Life. The beautiful, intelligent, spirited, professional, and fun loving girls are always ready to “Bring it On” for many events.

SLCS has an extensive outreach on the grid which includes Relay for Life. Their inspiration is to make a positive difference in SL and to help those that need it.  According to Team Co-Captain Kristina Curtau along with Co-Captain Valkyrie Twine, “We have members affected by cancer. We feel like it is our duty to help in anyway we can. Just that we love RLF and really appreciate the chance to help.”
