Effie's Designs Enters a Brave New World

Last year a friend of mine talked me into testing a newer virtual world. Effie's Designs was there for a short time. It did not end well due to poor management. However, during that time I made some new friends that I have continued to keep in touch with.

About two months ago, one of these friends invited me to InWorldz. She had already set up a store for me. I just needed to move in. I find it extremely heartwarming that Nox has so much faith in me that she knew I would come.

So, Effie's Designs is also now located in InWorldz. Although the whole product line is not there, many of my items are. I will be working on getting some more current products as well as new products there.

Did I really need a Third Life? No... lol. However, I thought this would be a good time to diversify.

If you would like to visit us in InWorldz, the coordinates of the store are:

*** Ultimate BLUES Evening ***

Friday, October 15, 2010

It's a party that you will feel in your soul...

****Ultimate BLUES Evening****

Your limo to the event:

4:00 KelvinBlue Oh
Born in 1953 in Houston, Texas, Kevin got his first guitar when he was 9 years old.

But Kevin's epiphany came one day when his father grabbed his guitar, wanting to play. Then he took a bottle and started playing slide and when Kevin heard that, He told himself, 'Man, that's what I wanna do.' And it's what I've been doing since."

While much about Second Life, including the live music scene, is about experimenting and pushing the limits, Kevin, or Kelvinblue Oh, and his beloved Fender Strat, Miss Blue, have proven that even in this virtual world, it is still soul that counts.

From lowdown roots blues to boogie woogie to flaming covers of his idol Hendrix, Kevin has become a real star in Second Life, which has allowed his honest performances and down home humor to instantly connect him with an international audience that knows and holds on to real talent when they see it.

And most everyone who watches him knows his many original songs by heart and "sing" along with him. It isn't unusual either for someone in the audience to say they're jamming along to Kevin on their own guitars or keyboards or some other instrument in RL or real life.

5:00 Lightnin Lowtide
Lightnin Lowtide is a singer songwriter with his own unique style, he covers songs of Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Eagles, Elvis and many more, as well as his own original songs. Deep in his soul, Lightnin, loves the blues.

His sidekick is his Red Fender Stratocaster, Ruby, which he talks sings and dances with at each show. It may make you wonder about his sanity; however, you will definitely know his love for music and sharing goodtimes with friends.

Lightnin's RL avie is a Southern California performer that has been playing clubs, bars and festivals since 1994 with Bands and Solo performances like the ones in Second Life.

Our hostess, Miss Effie, is so impressed with this talented live artist that she occassionally helps Lightnin out by hosting some of his shows.

6:00 Clairede Dirval
Clairede Dirval has been a RL musician for over 25 years. Her powerful, amazing, sultry voice is accompanied by her guitar. She sings a variety of songs and styles from country to rock to blues.

Clairede gives a sensational performance that is funny and a tad naughty. And, her music just finds its way to your soul.
