The SL Parade: Come Celebrate Our Grand Reopening!

This is an exciting time for The SL Parade, moreso because we will be having our Grand Reopening Celebration Party on Saturday, March 18, 2017 from 12 Noon SLT – 2 PM SLT!

Falbala Fairey, The SL Parade’s Grand Reopening DJ…

The SL Parade is also honored to have DJ Falbala Staheli (falbala.fairey) act as our Grand Reopening DJ!  Hailing from Germany, Falbala has been actively DJ’ing since 2008, and loves when others enjoy the music she shares.  The SL Parade recently caught up with Falbala, and when we asked her what her favorite thing was about DJ’ing she said, “I love taking my listeners on a trip full of emotions…all as a way to enjoy music on a different level…”

In addition, The SL Parade would like to not only introduce Justcallme Egipt as the acting host of this event, but also announce that Egipt has recently been hired as The SL Parade’s Event Coordinator.  As Event Coordinator, Egipt’s responsibilities include maintaining ReRe Sandalwood’s schedule, as well as plan and logistically coordinate all SL Parade events and activities. In terms of ReRe Sandalwood’s schedule, Egipt is sincerely needed because ReRe has become quite busy and needs to make sure she attends events scheduled inworld.

Because The SL Parade has had some challenges with the inappropriate use of its Headquarters, the Headquarters had to be temporally shut it down.  During this shut down process, readers may have noticed that no stories were posted on The SL Parade’s website; this was due, in large part due to restructuring efforts implemented to not only create a wider and more interactive parcel, but to also implement a new security-based protocol.  In terms of the latter, VP Sandalwood will now act as security for The SL Parade, and will actively oversee our newly remodeled parcel.

Justcallme Egipt (right) talks to ReRe Sandalwood on The SL Parade’s Red Carpet…

The SL Parade’s mission is to create an interactive parcel that emphasizes fellowship and education.  These two staples also act as the basis of showing that there is a firm connection between Second Life and Real Life.  Thus, with this mission and changes in mind, The SL Parade also introduces its new Kiosk; this kiosk is an interactive one, allowing patrons to animate their avatars and look as if they are reading a copy of The SL Parade!  Created by Aphrodite Shop, this kiosk offers patrons a menu of options.  These options include getting an SL Parade Headquarters landmark, as well as getting a Contributing Writers application and an invite to join The SL Parade’s inworld group.

If you join The SL Parade’s inworld group using the Kiosk, The Aphrodite Shop will give you a free gift!  All this and more will be featured at The SL Parade’s Grand Reopening Celebration party, so please be sure to come by and ENJOY what The SL Parade has to offer.  The party’s location is as follows, so please click here to get to The SL Parade’s Red Carpet…complete with a video camera and our on the scene host and reporter!

And please, do not forget to donate…without you, there would be no SL Parade!  Here is a breakdown of the upcoming party:

Who the F#$k Shot VP Sandalwood?

VP Sandalwood discusses the day he got shot in Second Life…

On February 20 2017, I was standing in The SL Parade Headquarters living room, minding my own business.  I remember being a tad bit annoyed because it was President’s Day, and thinking to myself, “Sheesh, this is more like ‘Celebrity President’s Day’ because of Trump being in office.”  Anyway, I decided to distract myself from said national holiday by listening to some music on Youtube. 

Vp Sandalwood stands in the area where the griefing took place…

I began to relax, and even sing along…that is, until my sister ReRe IM’d me.  She got in my box and told me to friend one of her sl friends; I remember feeling honored by my sister’s request because I know how important her SL buddies/business partners are, so I happily added the suggested avatar…which meant that I now had a new friend to talk to.

I was still trying to relax though, so I continued to listen to the music playing on The SL Parade Headquarters Youtube screen.  Then, all of a sudden, there were two random avatars standing in the living room! I had never met, nor heard of neither the male avatar standing in front of me, let alone the female one that was standing beside him.  While I know The SL Parade Headquarters is open to the public, I never expected anyone to rezz directly in front of me while I was watching Youtube.

For this reason, I initially dismissed their presence as being part of the video I was watching….until they started to independently move away from the screen.  I continued to stand there in disbelief, wanting to convince myself that my eyes were playing tricks on me.  

One of the griefers that invaded The SL Parade’s Headquarters…

As they continued to move in a haphazard fashion, a million emotions began to baffle me. Like, who the hell were these avis, and how did they get in with the security system up? Though my emotions were going haywire, it didn’t matter at that moment because then, they started talking to each other! 

Still in shock, all I could say was, “What are you doing in my house?!” I then froze and stayed silent,  but was still slightly curious, not to mention a bit infuriated by their presence. 

It felt as if two minutes had went by as I continued to stare at them, but in actuality it was really about 10 seconds because, within that 10 seconds, the male avatar SHOT ME! I didn’t initially realize what had happened until I saw that there was a splatter of red stuff all over the carpet and on the walls.

In the meantime, I continued to stand there, completely confused by what I was seeing.  However, I still managed to take a slight step back and was able to better see the red stains on the carpet.  It was then that it finally dawned on me:  OMG that is supposed to be MY BLOOD! 

Yet despite being shot, my initial calmness related to the realization of what had happened instantly turned to PURE RAGE.  I thought to myself, “I was just shot in my own sim!”

I then locked my attention on the male avatar, and remembered what ReRe told me a few weeks prior:  I have the ability to eject avatars from our home and ban them from ever coming back.  I initially doubted my own ability to do this, and asked myself, “….but how? I have never done this before!”  Yet somehow, I thought quickly and clicked on the avatar.  With I sigh of relief, I noticed that there was an option to eject him in what seemed like a blink of an eye.  It was then that I proceeded to eject him first by pressing that handy ejection button.  I smiled as I watched his avatar disappear from the sim, and even began to do a mental “happy dance” as evidence of my accomplishment.

I then turned to the male avatar’s female partner in crime; I initially paused for a moment because I realized that while yes, she was this guy’s partner and all, but she had not attempted to shoot me like that male avatar did.  That thought must have went through my head for a split second though, because I still ejected her in the same way that I ejected her partner.

Once I kicked and banned them both, the horror and anger slowly began to fade away…not totally, but just enough so that I could regroup my thoughts and alert my SL sister about what had just occurred.

In the end, I realized how precious life is, because a situation like that could very well happen in Real Life, too:  like me, a person could be chilling out, minding their own business in their own home watching television.  Then, with no warning, criminals can simply bust in and kill you for no legitimate reason at all.

Life is precious and what I hope that if you are reading this, that you will take a moment and tell the people in your life that you love them. This might be SL, but I still take the time to tell ReRe how much I care about her…with her big-headed self.

Vp Sandalwood and ReRe Sandalwood…

The SL Parade Implements CHANGE for the Holidays!

vp-and-rereIt’s that time of the year again, and while I am very excited about the holidays, I am also implementing some changes to The SL Parade!  Most of the changes are very positive, and I wanted to use this time to share them with our readers…

For starters, The SL Parade will no longer offer advertising packages for purchase.  As a budding new editor, I have found that these ad packages do not fully represent what The SL Parade can do for the community.  For this reason, The SL Parade will be implementing a flat rate charge of $1000L for all advertisements.  This flat advertising rate will cover two full months of service, but will also enable all advertisers to have a permanent ad placed in our “SL Advertisers” section of the publication.

flat-rates-1This $1000L flat rate charge will also cover the following costs:

  1. A feature article about your product or service, complete with photos and one on one interviews with not only the business owner, but a few of their clients as well.
  2. A feature of your article in The SL Parade’s  website’s Slider, providing your business with week long exposure on our front page.
  3. Advertising your feature article in Facebook groups (please see slideshow below)
  4. Advertising your feature article in inworld, Second Life groups (please see slideshow below)
  5. An ad board featured in The SL Parade’s classroom
  6. Honorable mention on The SL Parade’s new radio show, “The SL Parade Talks” (scheduled to start the third week of January 2017)
  7. Your photo advertisement inserted in various, non-controversial articles

The SL Parade will also be offering space for wedding announcements, as well as for Rezz Day shout outs and wedding anniversary announcements on both our website and on our radio show.  The rates for these kinds of ads will be as follows:

  1. Wedding anniversary announcements and in depth reflection on its significance, complete with a a full article write up, photos of the couple and evidence of the sl and/or rl life they have built together, and an announcement in all inworld SL groups (as listed in accompanying photo):  $1000L
  2. Wedding announcements, complete with a two-paragraph long write up, photos of the couple, and an announcement in all inworld SL groups (as listed in accompanying photo):  $600L
  3. If a couple becomes engaged, and want to share their announcement with the SL community in a congratulatory fashion, or if a member of their family wants to publish a couple’s engagement announcement, The SL Parade will publish the announcement on our website:  $100L
  4. Rezz day shout outs on “The SL Parade Talks”:  $100L
  5. Rezz day party announcements and/or shout outs on The SL Parade’s website:  $100L
  6. Rezz day party coverage, complete with photo layout, two paragraph write up and accolades from well wishers:  $600L

Please note that The SL Parade has the right to use discretion when it comes to ad placement, and there is no guarantee that we will agree to publish your advertisement simply because you are willing to pay.

II.  No SL Awards Coverage

cultural-diversity-bias-prejudice-discrimination-3-728The SL Parade will no longer cover SL award-themed events, with the exception of “SL’s Got Talent.”  In our publication’s opinion, many of these SL Award shows are inherently bias and award individuals who exhibit behaviors that completely conflict with the awards they are afforded.  This problematic behavior includes, but is not limited to:  unethical practices, cyber bullying, promiscuity that many try to keep hidden; prejudice against other nationalities, genders, races, and ethnicities, etc.

While The SL Parade takes this position, we still wish all SL Award-themed event participants and founders the best in their SL, and look forward to keeping this neutral stance as it pertains to events of this nature.

III.  Creating A Donor’s and “In Loving Memory” Section on The SL Parade’s website

Because The SL Parade relies on donations from the SL Public, we aim to encourage significant donations.  One way this will be done is via the publication of donor names, as well as the amount they have pledged to our publication.  Thus, if you or your organization donates $1500L or more to The SL Parade, your name will be permanently listed in the newly implemented “Donors Section” of our web page.

keep-calm-and-be-a-donorIdeally, The SL Parade would like to publish photos of the donors, but will only do so with the donor’s approval.

We also encourage donations that honor the deceased.  Similar to our “Donors Section,” all donations of this nature have to be $1500L or more in order to qualify for publication.  Thus, if a loved one of yours has passed on and you would like to honor their memory via a donation to The SL Parade, we will not only publish the individual’s name, we will also publish any affirming comments that offer remembrances of this individual’s sl and/or rl contributions.

If the donation is $2200L or more, The SL Parade will extend our duty to the community we serve by doing a full-length article on the deceased.  This full-length article will include interviews with the deceased loved ones, as well as a full photo spread.  These photos can be SL and/or RL photos, as long as those involved approve of their publication.

IV.  Conclusion

The SL Parade encourages any feedback, including comments, suggestions or concerns about these new implementations.  Thus, if you would like to get in touch with The SL Parade’s Editor-In-Chief, please feel free to contact me at either reresandalwood@theslparade.org or via Facebook here:  Arreba Sandalwood.  Of course, I can also be reached inworld at ℛᴇℛᴇ Sandalwood.

Sometime around July or early August, The Care and Hope Center, along with The SL Parade, will collaborate and have a class discussion on a subject that all of us can relate to…bullying.  ReRe Sandalwood and I will concentrate on the topic of cyber bullying since Second Life is an online form of social media.

ReRe Sandalwood, The SL Parade’s Founder and Editor-In-Chief…

The SL Parade is working hard FOR YOU! In preparation for the upcoming SL Parade Launch Party that will be held at the SL Parade Headquarters, ReRe Sandalwood, acting Founder and Editor of The SL Parade, has collaborated with some great SIM and club owners.  DJ KRSNA, one of many DJ’s gracious enough to help The SL Parade, is going to make it possible for Jill Scott to come and perform on Saturday, August 1, 2015 at 4 PM SL Time!  Scott, along with a very special SURPRISE guest, will offer a virtual performance filled with positive vibes and energy!

To insure The SL Parade is launched off in a fun, positive and vibrant way, there will be a two day celebration taking place on Saturday, August 1, 2015 and Sunday, August 2, 2015.

Huanita

In anticipation of this two day celebration, ReRe Sandalwood has also joined forces with party throwing veteran, Huanita Wunderlich.  Sandalwood, along with Wunderlich are not only friends, but business partners who plan to offer a combination of life entertainment and DJ Fueled music to patrons.

For those that may not know, Wunderlich is the owner of Club Lion, a Club that not only specializes in offering the SL Community live entertainment and performances from world renowned singers, but also bolsters a photography studio and an array of intimate sitting areas for patrons.  What makes Club Lion really special is that it has been open since 2008, and has recently celebrated seven years of success inworld.

Because Club Lion has recently moved to a new SIM, Wunderlich is planning a SIM Opening Party for not only Club Lion, but for The SL Parade, too.  This is because both buildings are housed on the same land, acting as virtual neighbors that share a surrounding ocean, as well as a beautiful sunset.  In turn, this enables patrons to venture on both sides of the SIM and enjoy the beautifully laid out scenery and foliage.

The tentative breakdown of the SIM Opening/Launch Party for Club Lion and The SL Parade is as follows:

On Saturday, August 1st, 2015, Club Lion tentatively presents the following activities:

Ricardo Avalira, who is an active and thriving Live Singer at Club Lion, will perform Saturday, August 1 from 12 PM - 1 PM...
