  1. Ministry of Trance hiring Hosts and DJs! Apply now! \o/

    I put in an application for being a host but am also looking into DJing again like I used to on OpenSim grids. I just need a refresher on a couple things but other than that I'm eager to get into DJing, too. I'll be online a ton this week if you're interested in chatting.
  2. Friendly neighbourhood queer looking for friends!

    I'm newer to Second Life but I love making friends. Gay male here and a big fan of video games as well as vodka.
  3. Becoming a DJ

    I used to DJ in OpenSim, so I have some knowledge on how to DJ in virtual worlds. But need some refreshing! What software do most use for streaming music? Where do you all get your servers? Do people usually talk on air in their events in SL like in OpenSim? Do many people use stage names? I apologize if this is the wrong category.
  4. Giving it another go!

    I've been so busy with real life. Going back into Second Life again today. If someone could help me get my avatar put together, that'd be great! Next step, getting into DJing and event hosting. Feel free to add me in-world...and to add to my original post, I'm no longer a single gay male from Metro Detroit.
  5. I don't really understand the step-by-step process of applying and using a mesh avatar, a skin, and a mesh head. I currently have a mesh head. I also have a mesh body with the skins that came with it in the purchase I made. I'm unable to get my head to match the body, skin wise. I went through the instructions both provided, but didn't work. I think I'm not understanding the process. I apologize if this is supposed to be in a different category. If someone can reach out to me, that'd be great!
  6. Giving it another go!

    Thank you for the tip! I do want to get into DJing and events so I hope some more people can come why to get me going. Ooh! We can kiki later.
  7. Giving it another go!

    Hi everyone! I'm Calum Ashby. I've been off and on Second Life for awhile, trying to get my feet wet. I've actually played around on OpenSim and non-grid oriented worlds for about 10 years now. I've even gone as far as working for a couple directly. Anyways, I'm having trouble getting immersed. I have a friend that's trying to show me the ropes of how to use the tools in the game to customize my avatar and go shopping; and so far it's a bit overwhelming as there's so many options and terms that I don't know yet. I also would love to get some assistance in getting into events. I used to be a massively big time event planner in virtual worlds on non-grid like worlds with many attendees ranging from racing to trivia, karaoke to card games, DJing to multi-day festivals, etc. -- I'd love to get into that on here in any light that I can and grow from that. I work a routine schedule job in my real life so I know my availability in world pretty well. For the purpose of making friends, my original reason for this post, here's a bit about myself. I'm 23 years old, I go by the name Evan in real life. You can also call me Ev. I respond to Cal or Calum in-world. I'm a single gay male from Metro Detroit. Rather kinky if it matters. I enjoy various music from 80s hair metal and pop to top 40 and EDM. I work in sales and marketing. I love a good cocktail and RuPaul's Drag Race but I also love playing fantasy games or watching something nerdy on Netflix. Just started Westworld on HBO, too. That's enough about me for now. Let me know if you'd like to chat! I'm free in the evenings after 4pm typically, Monday-Friday, or after 1pm on *some* Saturdays if I'm working. Sundays I'm off from work. (All times in SL time)
  8. Giving It Yet Another Go

    So I've decided to give Second Life yet another go. I've been in virtual worlds and opensim communities in the past *before* venturing into Second Life. I'm excited to make some new friends and connections to help kindle some interest in this world that I'm fascinated by. Some background info about me..hmm..I'm 21 years old and my name's Evan. You can call me Evan or Calum, whichever you prefer. I'm from Michigan and I'm a full-time college student studying Marketing. I enjoy DJing and event hosting in virtual worlds. I spend a lot of time on Facebook and other social media platforms so I'm definitely open to adding people there; especially after I create my SL Facebook account. I enjoy K-pop, EDM, video games, traveling, theme parks, food, fashion, LGBT pop culture, modern pop culture, and more. I hope I can find a newbie-friendly club to let me get back into DJing here, too; especially in EDM and Top 40. Feel free to say Hello! I usually don't bite unless you're into that so I make no promises with accidental nibblings.
