  1. I will do my best! Thank you to you and to everyone else for the encouraging words! I much appreciate them! I've thought about asking Joy and Doc if they'd write a history of Campbell Coast for the museum. I don't want to ask too much . . . but it would be cool at some point if it's not too much trouble. 🙂 SL has had an active and sizable aviation community for quite a long time. Due to the widespread abuse of security orbs that put up a bunch of pop-ups and interrupt flights by teleporting people home with little or no notice, most SL aviators tend to fly mainly or exclusively over protected water. For the same reason, airports and other aviation facilities tend to also be right adjacent to the coast. It also avoids situtions where people who buy land near the airport in the takeoff or landing path and setup ban lines or orbs that prevent the airport that was there before from operating. There have been issues of that. Still, the waterfront need not be ugly. I like to think we've done well at making White Star look nice from the sea. 🙂 Not that I'm responsible. I'm one of the owners, but did not design or build it.
  2. I own land mainly to keep things of value open to the community. I have: A small marina that provides a rezzing area with space for helicopters and boats near Mare Secundus; A large area in Koss setup as a nature preserve with old buildings overlooking Lake Zermatt in the snowlands, which also becomes a community holiday celebration area from Thanksgiving through the New Year; Two airports (one I co-own, the other I own outright); and A museum I'm launching for a much beloved art colony that is still in existence in name, but most of the community and the artists have left. Apart from my own house in Bellisseria, that's the main stuff. It's all open to the public and intended for the public to enjoy. No ban lines and no security orbs. A ban is a pretty rare thing.
  3. Campbell Coast was an art colony near and dear to many of us. I had the first ever photography exhibition in my life there and did DJ sets. Many others were artists, performers, renters, and community members. I am eternally thankful to the original ownership for giving me that opportunity as it turned out to be the first of an increasing number of photography jobs in my real life. While Campbell Coast still exists, a change in ownership has made it a different place and resulted in many people choosing to move on. Change is inevitable, of course, and people do move on. That's just life. But I'd like to see that community spirit memorialized and, ideally, continued before the original community of people evaporates and becomes too difficult to find. So, I've managed to acquire an original piece of the Campbell Coast real estate. I'm preserving as much of it as I can in its original condition and using it to start a Campbell Coast Museum in honor of the original place. I've also arranged to acquire an original Campbell Coast building to house it in. And even the land description info is being preserved as close as possible to the original. All who have been a part of the original Campbell Coast are invited to be involved! Some already are! You can contribute items from the original Campbell Coast. Props from events. Photos of events. Anything you find significant from the original Campbell Coast is welcome. Also, people who are not yet involved are welcome to join the Campbell Coast Museum in world. We might even try to bring back some of the old events if people are so inclined. Please contact me with any questions. You can find the museum parcel here. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Laserlight/178/166/150
  4. Wow. Honestly I thought Riot Hax was the slenderman. I am wrong! Wow. Well done! And as one of the Bellisseria characters myself . . . may I just say thank you for adding to the personality and color within the Bellisseria community and for being another character who has entertained us all? P.S. You are still not a more evil cat because you are not a cat. 🙂 P.P.S. Even though I'm evil, I hope your life improves and gets better. I'm sorry it has taken some rough turns. 😞
  5. In fairness, many things in SL are rather petty. Parcel bans, for example. I've been given lifetime bans by people I've never even met. Once in a while they post things in their land description to make clear they are mad at me for an opinion I stated on these forums--usually for saying something needs to be done about orb and ban line abuse. Other times I have no clue who the person is or why my name is on their ban list. I hate to say it, but why should retail transactions be any exception? SL is a community full of all kinds of people. That's part of what makes it so great. Most people are pretty decent. But unfortunately, some people are petty jerks. That includes merchants too. I just wish we had better means of addressing it when people cross lines beyond being merely petty jerks.
  6. The Evil Cat just saw a Bellisseria Slenderman walk past on the relay track.
  7. I was surprised to hear of Ebbe's passing. We all lost someone who was important to us today. I really don't know what to say beyond that except to offer my condolences especially to the team at LL, as they probably knew him best and are probably even more saddened than the rest of us.
  8. So does this mean that the Evil Cat's win in the battle of Bellisseria evilness is official? Many have tried to out-evil the Evil Cat. None have succeeded. The Evil Cat continues on. Sincerely, The Evil Cat
  9. Disturbed by the Bellisseria Slenderman's recent attempts to portray himself as being an eviler cat, even though he is not a cat, the Evil Cat sits in front of the Evil Cat House plotting revenge the next time she encounters the Slenderman. https://gyazo.com/9c12eeef24cd9a3756de698726424ced
  10. Now just hold on a second. Look at the group tags! I object! I object! I object! The Slenderman can't be a more evil cat than the evil cat! He's not even a cat! Plus it's Christmas so I'm nice today!

  12. Happy Holidays, Happy Kwanza, Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Happy Saturnalia, and Happy Solstice!

You are welcome to decorate and enjoy the cabin, the snow shelter, and anything else on the parcel. On January 8, 2020, I will return all items.

I want to show all those who are lonely on the holidays that they are not alone. Please contact me with any questions. Female (female.winslet)
  13. Evil is kinda like Highlanders, you know? There can be only one.
  14. It's the long awaited confrontation between Bellisseria's two main forces of evil. The Slenderman versus the Evil Cat. In the end there can be only one.
  15. FOR SALE! The former headquarters of LiaEx, the Company to call when you absolutely, most definitely do not need it there tomorrow. Or next week. Or next month. This 3072 sqm parcel is in Corsica at the end of a Protected Linden canal and has protected water access allowing you to sail all the way down to Nautilus and the Blake Sea. The parcel is situated on the edge of a sim and across that sim is SL's very own Disneyland! It's across the sim so it won't lag you, but close enough to be fun! 🙂 Asking price: 30,000L I'd very much like to see it go to someone who will use it instead of a land baron who will double or triple the price and let it sit vacant for years. Location? Right here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Paneer/105/14/24
  16. I'm not sure exactly what the question means. Individual tip amounts vary a lot. I would say anything up to 500L is a typical tip, but I have had them go much higher. The total tips for a gig vary. I've been in semi-retirement where I have only been doing special events and such. One time gigs. I do have a client who hires me repeatedly. This is typically 30-60 people. The sets are usually 1 hour instead of the typical 2 hour sets in clubs. I usually have a total tip amount 1500L-3000L for the hour. I sorta kinda came out of my semiretirement (haven't decided if I want to go find a club gig or not) two weeks ago to start doing a regular set at a friend's place. The place is new. The set I'm doing has never existed before. It's only happened twice before. It's a typical 2 hour set, but we're only getting 5-7 people right now. And I forgot to put out a tip jar at all the first. And the first half of the second time. And then I got 750L in tips for the second half of the set on the one time I put out a tip jar. 🙂 Like I said . . . I sometimes am forgetful. I usually forget to even tell people I have a DJ group and if you were to look at the group you might notice I didn't create it. A fan got mad at me for not having one, created it, and invited me to join. So I may be the only SL dj who did not make their own DJ group. I don't have a subscribo . . . I forget to send out notices in the group I do have . . . and, yeah, I hate doing the self promotion stuff and I'm really bad at it.
  17. May I share some thoughts from this from the DJ perspective? I never ask for tips because I figure that if I’m doing a good job, I won’t have to. This approach has worked well for me and I often receive as much as about 3000L in tips for a half-set of one hour in length. I do use tipping as a way to entertain the audience though because, let’s face it, entertaining is my job. It’s not just about playing songs. So I will thank people for their “Linden like” on the mic and talk about how that is oh so different from the “Linden love” that most people say, for example. I don’t like people to típ me less than my host, but I will never say anything to the audience about it. Never ever ever. What I will do if I see that the host has significantly less than me at the end of the set, I will tip them enough to even out the difference. So if they get 2000 in tips and I get 3000, then I will tip them 500 at the end. Now we each have 2500. My reasoning is that the show is a team effort and the host is just as important as I am. The host-DJ interaction is a way to entertain the audience and keep people talking and engaged and having fun kinda like a late night tv host and their sidekick. On top of that, I spend an awful lot of time buried in my DJ software to the point where I often only hear about 1/3 to 1/4 of my own shows. And the fact that I’m buried in DO software affects my ability to chat in local. I also have a real world disability that affects how much I can type in local—in fact, that’s why I started DJing; a lot less wear on my wrists than hosting because I get to talk on mic. Since my audiences are frequently 30-60 people or more, I just cannot keep up with everything in local. So I rely on my host for that. I do encourage people to tip the venue. The reason for that is the costs involved in running a good venue. Land costs add up fast in SL and get really expensive, but i think that tends to get forgotten about. One of the things I try to make a hallmark of my shows is simply being kind. And that includes being kind to the venue owners. If someone comes and does not tip at all, I’m fine with that. I worry more about having people come than I do about having them tip me. If people come, then the green dot effect comes into play where people are drawn to the crowd of green dots on the map. Don’t worry. Some of the people who come will handle the tipping. Aaaaaaand . . . I’ve been known to completely forget to even put out a tip jar, actually. Sometimes I have forgotten for entire sets. Because, let’s be honest. No one is making a great living as a Second Life dj. The only real reason to do it is to have some fun with you and the audience. As long as I can do that, I feel like I have been very well tipped indeed, thank you very much. Anything else is gravy. Not every dj is going to feel the way I do, or course. But I think that putting the audience ahead of my tips makes me a better, more successful dj and does a lot to explain why I tend to get invites for relatively big audiences and why I get tip totals that are rather higher than most. At the end of the day, if I take care of the audience they will take care of me.
  18. I just want to say I like the name. Baked 'n' Beats is cute.
  19. The Evil Cat is kind of like the Queen of England, except higher ranking. Like the Queen of England, the Evil Cat does not need a passport.
  20. However, *Evil* Cats do not run from the Slenderman. They go bat-bat-bat with their paws on those things sticking out of his back.
  21. The Bellisseria Evil Cat is far more evil and scary than the Bellisseria slenderman. Just give the Slenderman some pizza. He will magically become the Bellisseria fat man. 🙂
  22. Because Linden's participate in conversations. (Yay!) And they inevitably drop a little bit of information along the way. That doesn't mean every word they say should be posted.
