Opening Ceremony @ SL Sci-Fi Expo

That was a blast, literally! 🙂 Not only one of the biggest audiences I’ve had for one of my Gorean Whip Radio shows, but also one of the biggest audiences I’ve had in-world too. Of course, the flip-side of that was lag, and lots of it, to the point where I had to switch away from Firestorm to get my streamer controls to respond! But I soldiered through, and had a load of fun riffing off the crowd in front of me.

Benjamin Brougham, the organizer and lead for the Sci-Fi Expo, provided me with a list of songs he wanted to be played during the ceremony, plus a prepared speech to broadcast. (We’d discussed the possibility of doing that live over Discord, but given that I knew it would be laggy I suggested that he pre-record instead.) I filled around that playlist with my selection of themes from TV shows and films. 🙂

I wasn’t expecting to have such a nice DJ booth, nor have a light-show to accompany it. Thanks to the Sci-Fi Expo team for arranging that. 🙂

And this evening they dropped a new promo video for the event, which features the audio of the audio promo I created earlier this week for Gorean Whip Radio. 😀

Yes, that’s my voice! 😀

2020 SL Sci-Fi Expo Starts Today :)

I’ve been a very busy alien the last few days! The 2020 Sci-Fi Expo is happening from the 14th to the 28th October, and Gorean Whip Radio is the official station for the event. In previous years it has been help around November / December time, so I was caught off-guard when Irish Breen informed me that it was happening this month! 😮

This year they’re raising money for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and the American Cancer Society.

Spiffy’s DJ Set @ BURN2 “The Multiverse”

As promised, here’s the audio recording of my DJ set from Saturday at BURN2 “The Multiverse”. There weren’t as many people this time, compared to my previous appearance at BURN2 VRC at the end of August, but the upside was that I could actually type in chat without horrible lag! 😛

BURN2 “The Multiverse” Show Incoming!

Just a reminder that I’ll be DJ-ing today at BURN2 “The Multiverse” in Second Life, from 12pm to 2pm SLT (8pm to 10pm UK time).

Here is the link to the landing point if you’re in-world. Be advised that it could get very busy, so remove any scripted attachments, HUDs or other items that you don’t need before arrival.

If you can’t make it, you can tune in to my DJ stream here. I will also be streaming to Gorean Whip Radio, but as I’ll be squeezing in between two other shows there you might miss the start of my set. Never fear if you can’t listen live, I’ll be recording my show and posting it here tomorrow, along with tracklisting. 🙂
