Opening Ceremony @ SL Sci-Fi Expo

Spiffy at the Main Stage at the 2020 SL Sci-Fi Expo opening ceremony

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! 😀
