Don't make me call The Dance Police... Take 22

I take a lot of photos of dance performances.
Maybe too many.

Sometimes, I smile.
Sometimes, I wince.
And then there’s the times... well... you know...

I like to call this portion of our trip:
Don’t Make Me Call The Dance Police.

Did you get all the chickens I sacrificed to you?
Can you sign my autograph book for me?

Poledancing should be an Olympic event, but based on the strip club around the corner, 15 year-old Russians will still win all the Gold medals.

Some venues forget the catering, so the dancers have to eat their hair accessories.

Sure, The Fiddler on the Roof has a rough job, but the Fiddler in the Cesspool Tank and the Fiddler in the Middle Of The Busy Freeway are just waiting for that job to open up.

I caught Lina doing a backflip, but the line of women with Laura in it? Nope. But in my defense, five women, so quintuple backflip, right?

One Billion Rising - February 14 2018
I'm there for irony's sake.

Nouveau Ensemble - One Billion Rising - February 14 2018
It's kind of vicious to stamp the set with the number of fired backup dancers.

Oh. My. God. How many damn shows did I go to this week? I thought this would NEVER end!

Thank you, and stay tuned next Sunday for the next thrilling episode.

  • Gloria G is the member of the group newest to SL dance. 
  • Chagen Sanchez is a performer with the Lightning Productions Tribute Band, His 3 years of experience in those shows has lead directly to his being dragged into dance with his wives' dance group.
  • Our MC and DJ will be Sara Cao Rang who musical interests are both wide and deep and has been sharing them via deejay shows for nearly 10 years.

The CMNF Lounge is an Adults only venue, and Fab 4 You does feature female nudity. However, all audience members are encouraged to keep their clothes on for the comfort of all in attendance.

Casting Call for Scandalesque

An open casting call on behalf of Spice Hancroft:

Please join me in opening a new Burlesque/Cabaret Club, Scandalesque. 
I currently am looking to hire a sexy-voiced DJ/Host with own stream, a PR person, and at least 2 sexy dancers that don't mind partial nudity.   
Scandalesque is a tiny club that, to start with, will be open once a month, and also to start tips only.
The music is 20's to 50's Ratpack style, so you should enjoy that music era. If you are a Dj /Host you should be funny, classy and sensual. You will double as host. 
The  PR person will be responsible for sending notices, writing blurbs for Dance Queens, and any special shows that the club produces. 
Dancers perform in a group or solo, create their own dances that are burlesque theme and cabaret style, and perform as a group for opening and closing shows. Set building is not necessary, as the club is too small to use large sets, there is a backdrop, that can be changed through edit. No total nudity, but serious teasing. Male dancers are encouraged to apply.

Please contact Spice Hancroft if interested.

The New Firestorm...

So, the Firestorm Team recently released a new version of their viewer. A lot of y'all wait for a while to download new software until there's patches and fixes for the patches and fixes in the initial release. I totally get that, since I do the same with the iOS on my phone. ("Don't be a hero, skip the point-zero.")

There's always time to do it later...

Winds of the Sahara - February 11 2018

However, there's something important about this release that you should be aware of:
All SL users are going to need to update within the next month or so. Linden Lab will be disabling some old inventory code soon, which will break legacy inventory fetching for all previous Firestorm versions and any viewer not supporting the new and much-improved HTTP asset fetch functionality.

You kind of need your inventory, right? I mean, sure, it would solve all your "My inventory is a disorganized mess!" issues instantly, but then you'd have some pretty serious "Where the hell is my everything!" and "Why is nothing rendering!" issues.

Seriously, this isn't a time to foot-drag on the Firestorm upgrade. The back-end is changing, and the older versions can't get a nice tight squeeze on that back end. (...PHRASING!)

Even though most users can perform a basic install and things will work, we strongly recommend that you perform a clean install. There's no telling what crap Windows or MacOS will leave in there that'll trip up the new code.

(NOTE: With either option, SpaceNavigator users will likely need to re-configure their macros for the new Firestorm version. I tend to do left-button as null and right-button as Control ~ for snapshots, so no big deal there.)

I know, I know... not everybody is a drooling fanbot of Firestorm like I am. (<3 Jess!) So, what about other viewers?

Well, if you're on Linden Lab's Second Life Official Viewer, you should be keeping up with the newer releases with automatic downloads already (and grumbling when you hit Control-S and things don't resync). And if you're on some other breed of viewer, Inara Pey's Viewer Roundup Page is an excellent resource. (I highly recommend Living in a Modem World as a whole, and not just because I write a dance column over there, mmmmkay?)
