What an INCREDIBLE 1st birthday party we had at PAL! The whole sim looked amazing thanks to the lovely people at Caerleon Isle Art Collective, with swaying psychedelic flowers, some groovy fractal art and 3D acid trips! Everyone partied in an array of hippy inspired clothing which really added to the 1960’s theme chosen to celebrate Pop Art lab’s first year.
Our visitor counters went into meltdown when we reached 230 people-but the lovely new Class 5 sim did us proud and there were NO crashes-The Linden Lab gods must have been smiling down on us!!
The musicians were all awesome and we were lucky enough to see some new and established acts come and play for us-testament to the absolute professionalism of the musicians who use Second Life as a platform for showcasing their immense talent. Special thanks must go to these artists: Hazideon Zarco, Avvy Barzane, Obeloinkment Wrigglesworth, Engrama, Starflower Orbit and long time friend of PAL-Mankind Tracer.
There was a real feeling of love in the pixilated air as local chat echoed with congratulations and some funny anecdotes-it really was a great crowd of people who came to support us!
Congratulations to the whole PAL team who are some of the hardest working people in Second Life and real life media/music, but extra applause must surely go to Claus Uriza-CEO of PAL who has poured his heart and soul into making PAL the most progressive music project not only in Second Life-but in any virtual world. You rock Claus!!
I am off to sweep up empty beer tins, underwear and other rock and roll items off the floors of PAL and to look back on a hugely successful first year-bring on year 2!!!!!

Persia bit the robo DJ g’nite after 6 hours event 3 AM!
A brief report from last nights event!
Everything worked smoothe and all 5 artists did awesome live gigs. All streams were set perfect and even though a very tight schedule no delay at all.
The local counter read 175 unique guests this morning and only counts in a close range to landing point which means all peeps who TP’d direct to audience area by friends excluded. So more likely about 250 peeps came and went throughout the 4-5 hour event. Good numbers!
Read reports recently claiming live gigs in SL has a downturn at the moment – well once again what to say? Pop Art Lab don’t see this downturn infact we see the opposite… a fast growing group and a fully packed sim! Max Kleene doing his gig fronting 70 peeps crowd
Great respect and thanx goes to Emily Hifeng, Starflower Orbit, Persia Bravin, Gustavo Lionhart and Mozy Pera for helping throughout event.

Pop Vox feat. Mankind Tracer April 8th
Just been uploaded here in glorious HD Widescreen format! Go check out it’s awesome!
Also SL Enquirer magazine just posted an article where Persia Bravin takes us behind the scene of Wednesdays Pop Vox show. Go read here
What an awesome Pop Vox show last night!
A report and how these shows happen behind the scene.We meet 1 hour before showstart MK, Persia Bravin, Yxes Delacroix (Treet.TV) and me. There we set up mikes and audio to test Skype and SL voice. This may sound as an easy job for an hour and well it can be. But being the director of these shows and not the best to let other people do the job I have to deal with access lists, handing out landmarks, coordinate audio/vids for simulcasted etc! Of course all this is planned and handed out days before shows but somehow people loose their notecards, SLurls, schedule and landmarks (and I sometimes do myself too!). No offence here at all just a note to let ya’ all know Second Life planning ain’t like Real Life planning. And oh to catch up this pre hour set up is high speed work leaving me with tons of IMs I try reply while speaking with 3 people same time on voice. Sorry to those I had to ignore.
*The cover of Mankind Tracers brand new CD*
Anyway!!! Pop Vox started 4:02 and we got it all set inclusive the audience. For the first time we invited the audience to participate in the artist interview by sending me IMs with their questions. It was great fun and after Persia Bravin finished her 20 min. interview I asked MK questions from the audience. After the interview which by the way was streamed live throughout the grid to those who tuned in and at SLCN plus Treet.TVs newly designed site we headed to the Q sim stage area where MK kicked off his 45 min live set at 5 PM. About 100 people saw and heard MK at his absolute TOP playing an awesome gig. I can’t wait to see this in HD widescreen qual. when Treet.TV put up in their archives asap. We could have hoped for more people but it was very late night in Europe and to maximize the TV recording it definately helped the sims didn’t lack performance due to higher traffic. Also of note Videopathic had set up a giant Intelli screen above stage where show could be viewed as seen live on Treet.TV.
To sum up it was prolly the most professional and successful Pop Vox show to date!
Huge respect and thanx to all behind this TV production/show.
