I’m just a virtual girl in a virtual world…

  • /me wants to (fight lag and) go!

  • The event sounds good, but they have done no favours by putting many of the SL acts onto a tiny parcel known as chill island…only 25 avatars can fit there..LOL….it seems like some kind of cruel joke, or set up. Anyway..the SL acts will be genuinely live and the avatars will be controlled by the acts themselves, unlike the RL acts if you are popping along..make sure you are early and come and see us!!
