I thought I'd just do a blog to let you know what's occurin'. :)
I got an email the other day from the manufacturers - and my CDs should be arriving here on Thursday! Eek! Exciting stuff though. :) - So now I'm just getting ready for when they arrive. :)
Thankyou for your brilliant comments about about about about love. :P (Especially you TV, I just knew you'd love it! Lol)
It was really great collaborating with Rob and Darren, - two very talented peeps. :) Lyrics by Rob, vocal melody/singing/video by Holly and musical production by Darren. :)
I warn you now - there may well be another cheesy trance tune by Darren and Holly on the way soon. - So keep a look out for that TV! ;)
Ah - also...
I've just joined Second Life. Here's a little bit about it if you don't know what it is...
Second Life is a three-dimensional virtual community created entirely by its membership. Members assume an identity and take up residence in Second Life, creating a customized avatar or personage to represent themselves. The avatar moves about in the virtual world using mouse control and intuitive keyboard buttons.
Second Life’s virtual world also includes sound; wind in the swaying trees, babbling brooks, audible conversation, and built-in chat and instant messaging. Residents buy property, start businesses, game with other residents, create objects, join clubs, attend classes, or just hang out. The rendering of Second Life is remarkable, making it an instant guilty pleasure.
I joined because I've been reading various articles about marketing music and its name has cropped up a few times. Apparently, musicians are able to put on live gigs in Second Life - their live audio playing out as if their little avatar thingy is singing. It's also great for socialising...
So I downloaded it the other day and my little avatar thing got plonked down into this brand new 'Second Life' world. There were lots of people walking around me...(real people, aaah!)...and I couldn't help feeling the same shy/nervous feeling that I do in real life. (Or 'First Life' as I believe 'Second Life' people call it.)
So I quickly switched to 'Edit Appearance' mode where no one could talk to me...what a wuss...and tried to make me look more like me. Admittedly, that's not the point of Second Life...you can go wild and get multiple piercings/tattoos etc., but because I'm on there as myself, as a musician, I thought it best to try and copy my own appearance. If I turned myself into a beautiful buxom brunette, then people would be pretty disappointed when they saw what I actually looked like! :P
I've been on Second Life twice so far. I'm currently wandering round, trying to find a hairstyle that's a bit like mine, preferably a beret that's a bit like mine and hopefully clothes that are a bit like mine. - You can't easily design your own clothes/hair so people make shops which 'sell' them. Second Life actually has its own currency called 'Linden Dollars' - The current exchange rate is about 250 Linden Dollars to 1 US Dollar. I haven't spent any money yet. - You don't really have to - lots of places do things for free. Well, some places. Haven't found a free beret yet though. :-S
I haven't spoken to anyone yet either. I'm a little bit scared. I need the security of a beret and a different hairstyle to do that. You know when a lady says 'Ooh I can't answer the door, I haven't got my make-up on!'? - Well I kind of feel a bit like that at the moment. Lol.
Anyway, I'm still getting the hang of it. There seems like lots to learn about, but once I've got myself sorted out appearance-wise I'll be hanging round the musicy bits for a couple of minutes each day. On Second Life, you can even build houses, get married etc. - it's incredible. I don't think I'll be doing that though. Lol.
P.S - If any of you use Second Life, then I'll post my name on here when I've sorted myself out! Lol.xxx
