  1. Finally, it's in: data extrapolated from Nicecast/Icecast files played in SL clubs between 2010-2020 reveals this to be the most played song ever
  2. I had another dream about SL last night! The Lindens had organized a 'cowpat-throwing' fight with residents in Sandbox Goguen. But then Ebbe ran in, distressed, and announced that the new investors had logged in and that everyone had to pretend to be building, and not to swear. The investors walked around the sandbox, prodding objects and giving each other WTF? looks, while Ebbe explained that they were witnessing a professional building class for very important CEOs. Unfortunately, at that very moment, SL Donald Trump entered the sandbox with his neko ninja bodyguards and started yelling into a megaphone about how SL restaurants were funded by the WHO, and that everyone should only eat at his inworld KFC outlets. When the investors asked what the hell was going on, SL Trump told them to drink some Dettol. Then there was a massive explosion: SL Trump's arch-enemy, SL Jenna Jameson, had stormed the sandbox with her legion of scantily dressed pole dancers on winged white horses, and was shooting exploding Zooby babies at Trump. One of the investors pulled out his mobile, to call his bank - and then I woke up.
  3. Last night I dreamt Donald Trump was on SL (in a Donald Trump avatar), using his (RL) wealth to buy up chunks of land, on which he'd build all-prim, flashing red KFC stores. Residents and neighbours complained but, technically, he hadn't broken TOS. so he carried on buying up as many places on mainland as he could. There was a big inworld dispute after he blocked the Blake Sea with badly placed ban lines. In response, he branded his critics ' terrorists'. Then I was in a sandbox, watching SL Trump build yet another KFC store in the middle, when a furry fox woman approached me, sobbing, "My little ones have been stolen." I promised I'd track them down for her. I located them in a cage in an MC sim; the bikers were planning to sell her kids to an animal testing lab! The bikers came at me with studded clubs but I pulled out my orbit pistol and sent them rocketing into the sky, where they screamed as the sun burnt them to a crisp. I took the furry toddlers back to their mother, who rewarded me with a 50% stake in her gacha machine repair business. Within minutes, I was a million dollars richer and able to buy my dream sky castle. However, just as I was about to make my payment, the seller apologised and withdrew his offer - SL Trump had beaten me to it! I watched in disbelief as SL Trump deleted the castle and installed a massive, 200-storey fullbright KFC branch on the land instead. When I asked why he kept on doing this he told me "that's a nasty question, a very nasty question" and ejected me.
  4. No good news to report. Seems the bondholders' money has been taken out of SL, most likely through a chain of alts, and the person responsible has deleted his account. It's had a calamitous effect on SL/LL revenues, and could be a key factor in the Lab's recent decision to sell off Sansar.
  5. Wondering now (not stating for sure) whether a few of the LL layoffs have anything to do with this fiasco. Clearly a lot of questions that still need to be answered. If anyone needs to speak confidentially regarding how this has affected them, please IM me inworld - I intend to write up a report about this (anonymity guaranteed).
  6. Still so many unanswered questions. Like, how did the people managing these bonds get away with sinking the money into an unprofitable skybox business, without approval from the vampire community? Why has one of the fund managers suddenly disappeared from search?
  7. And now the hammer blow to the SL economy is revealed: British Pound Sterling 1 GBP = 417.51 LD Linden Dollar
  8. A lot of angry residents tonight calling for Ebbe's resignation.
  9. Vampire bonds are down -1.0% since the latest announcement. Could this be the end for SL? Haven't seen such a drop since the breedables market collapsed.
