Tell Ty Volume 11!

Yep, it finally happened! I finally ran out of things to write about the jam. I suppose this post could be vaguely linked to jamdom as the two musicians I am featuring in this volume of Tell Ty are both going to be rocking out at the Dallas Jam!

I will skip the shaming of those who are not regular readers of the blog and assume that you will go back and read EVERY SINGLE previous post. I will give you THIS. It just so happens to be a link to the last Tell Ty that I know you are itching to read. Then again, maybe you are just itching and you should really get that checked out but you can catch up on the older posts while you wait in the doctor’s office!

Tell Ty Vol 11

For most of the readers of this blog summer has arrived with a vengeance. It is hotter than balls in a lot of places. If you are wondering how hot that is….well…..you just have to find out for yourself. You know what else is hot? The couple that I am about to hit you with. They are musicians, dual streamers, partners, gamer baes and probably a few other things I don’t even want to think about.

J Lively

  1. Tell me something random.                                                                                      If the planet earth was 0,6 miles closer to the sun it would Burn, if it was 0,6 miles further away from the sun it would freeze making it uninhabitable.
  2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.                                             I have a scar on my back from a skiing accident
  3. Tell me something that not everyone would know about you.                                   I used to be afraid of butterflies and dead leaves as a toddler

After sending me to reply to the first statement J felt the need to add “i bet you didnt think it was going to be something educational betch”. And dammit if she wasn’t correct! I did not think it would be something so sciencey!

Naughty

  1. Tell me something random.                                                                                  First thing that I thought was drummer from Def Leppard only has one arm.
  2. Tell me something that you think I should know about you.                                      I hate socks.
  3. Tell me something not everyone knows about you.                                                  I am like a snowflake one of a kind just like everyone else.

And now I am picturing a one armed snowflake with bare feet. I am positive that is what he wanted to happen too.

Now you know just a nugget more about SL’s musical love birds! Incidentally, they are also one of the few couples in SL that do not make me throw up a little in my mouth.

Tell Ty Vol 9 AND How’d You Get Here Vol 5!

What?!?!?! A Tell Ty AND a How’d You Get Here in the same post! Has the world gone crazycakes! Actually, it has, but that has nothing to do with this post. You know the drill when it comes to both of these much anticipated types of posts. If you don’t then shame on you! Once you realize what you have done feel free to click here and here to find the lists of previous volumes.

She is an icon in her own right. You have seen her at After Dark many a time and at the helm of Guerilla Burlesque. Her image is featured on the After Dark show posters that you see plastered on Facebook. She is a director, producer, photographer, DJ, writer, dancer, explorer and the matriarch of Idle Rogue. She is the one, the only cherryblonde Scribe, aka Cherry to many.  .
As Idle Rogue celebrates its 6th year of greatness on the grid, there is no better way to honor that than by featuring the fearless leader. On a side note, if you have never explored Idle Rogue outside of After Dark, you need to. The sim is utterly amazing. Get out, wander a bit. It is well worth it!
Tell Ty Volume 10
1. Tell me something random.
10-20% of women have never experienced an orgasm. This is a travesty.
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.
I’m not very good at “random”
3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you.
I once made a valve guide for a Harley Davidson to 0.00+/- tolerance. I have also cleaned up a game of pool from the break and topped out on 180 in a game of darts. I have a misspent youth 😉
I have to agree, the fact behind the random statement is a travesty! Those poor things! I would also like to add that there is nothing wrong with a misspent youth when said youth becomes as amazing as cherry is as an adult.
How’d You Get Here Volume 5
Curiously, when I first logged on to Second Life, the major Australian telco had a portal and their own sim, and many Australians came to SL through The Ponds Estate. Because they’re a corporate entity, they didn’t allow music streaming on-sim, you had to listen externally to DJs and they didn’t have live musicians. It didn’t take long to break out of the walled garden though!
I had been to a few musicians but hadn’t really taken to it – surprisingly, because music is my passion – when I got a notice from an art gallery for a live music event. It was JimmyT49 Dukes, and my entire world, in both lives, changed right there. I had been at home with my youngest child for 6 years, and was missing live music in ways that pervaded everything … and listening to Jimmy Dukes, I realised, I could have it back, I could go to live concerts and hear great music.
There’s not as much of the kind of live music I like in Second Life, I’m a rock chick and I love the band sound, which is hard to do and not lucrative enough to draw the kind of talent I dream about. But I’ll wait 😉
Cherry also asked that I add the following statement:
please like me on facebook, I need a friend
https://www.facebook.com/chryblnd/
You really should. She posts interesting things……..not the drivel you see all too often on social media!

Tell Ty Vol. 9!

Hello Tell Ty my old friend……..You’re asking questions once again…..

YEEHAW!! Tell Ty is BACK! Everyone knows that I am nosy and I love to ask questions and Tell Ty lets me do just that without making me look like a total creeper! Since it has been a long time since there has been a volume of Tell Ty, I feel the need to give a bit of a refresher for those who may be new to the blog or for those regular readers who just forget things for whatever reason. Personally, I find the thoughts that roll out of my mind to amusing that I do not understand how anyone could ever forget them. I mean, honestly, my trains of thought are so on the track that it boggles my mind how anyone would forget one……now what was I talking about?

Tell Ty is a quick and relatively painless way to get to know the staff of After Dark and the musicians that groove the stage and rock the walls. I ask three questions. The same three things of every person that participates. 1. Tell me something random. 2. Tell me something you think I should know about you. 3. Tell me something that not everyone knows about you. See, it is totally painless. No staff or musicians were harmed in the making of Tell Ty. If you would like to take a trip down memory lane and look at the previous volumes of Tell Ty you can click here.

This volume features a staff member that I completely forgot I had not accosted with my questions when she officially joined the staff and a musician who is new to After Dark.

Tell Ty Volume 9!

                                                   Hunson Abadeer (tharaddavil)

This volume of Tell Ty begins with a newcomer to the After Dark stage, Hunson Abadeer. Not only is he a newcomer to our stage, but he is possibly one of the youngest performers to have played After Dark. I promise he is legal though. I know you are all thinking “OMG! They let her deal with minors?!?!” Don’t be silly! We all know that would be a catastrophe!

1. Tell me something random.
I bailed the banks out. I spawned this whole house.
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.
Typically, I’m playing drums and writing music for my wizard pop band called The Flabbercasters. Hunson Abadeer is just something for me to do solo, when I’m feeling like less of a dork.
3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you.
I used to be a considerably popular machinima youtuber. I made videos on a game called “Free Realms” back in 2010. It was seriously one of my favorite games of all time. Unfortunately, Sony shut down the servers in 2014, but my Youtube account kept getting visitors and subscribers. It currently has a little over 400 subscribers and my best video has almost reached 30,000 views. I’ve never been as embarrassed as I am proud. I used my real voice and got help from my brother too. Our voices are so high, it’s hilarious. In-game, I used the username “Th3 Raddavil” and that’s where my resident name (tharaddavil) stems from.
Please don’t make me regret sharing this:
https://www.youtube.com/user/FreeRealmRadDavil
You heard the man correctly, wizard pop band. I didn’t know what that was until I met Hunson and now I know that any band that play a love song about Medusa is good by me! And since he asked so nicely, let’s not make him regret sharing the youtube link!

She is the newest member of the After Dark Lounge Staff. She is a fantastic hostess and cute as a damn button but this woman has a dark side, and you are about to see it firsthand! Her replies are about as sassy as the finger she is presenting in the photo above! I present to you, the most judgey Tell Ty responses ever, from none other than Mrs. Shannyn Waverider!

1. Tell me something random.
I like to correct peoples typos…..
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.
I noticed you made a typo in your questions here.
3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you.
Your typo was here in question three, it should have been knowS not know. So something everyone does not know about me? I am an obnoxious bitch when it comes to typos! : )

After Shanny sent me her responses I applauded her on getting them back to me so quickly. Then I read the note card…….then I went through older Tell Ty notecards in my inventory to see if that typo had always been there. Sure enough, there it was in all of its typographical erred glory. 8.5 volumes of Tell Ty, most of them featuring at least 2 people and no one pointed it out till now. Thank you Shanny for being ever diligent and pointing out when I make a mistake!

There you have it folks! Another Tell Ty in the books! Hopefully more to come as well!

♥ Ty

SLACKER!!!

SLACKER!

There are times that I sit down to write this blog, I take my quill in hand and ink the tip (just the tip) and as I set the pen to paper I think “What the crap am I going to write about today?”. Then a barrage of things come to mind, and on occasion one or two of them is appropriate content for our readers. Most are utter trash or filth. As I sat down to write this post I was drawing nothing but trash and filth. I know that our readers can appreciate both on a certain level, but we are not even going to delve into that area of my mind! I respect you all too much to subject you to that!

I thought, pondered, mulled, ruminated, speculated and mused as to what I would write about. Then I took a nap. All of that thinking is EXHAUSTING! When I awoke from my nap it occurred to me that there is a person at After Dark that has not replied to any of my requests for content. Neither Tell Ty or How’d You Get Here. How dare she! So, I went to Meegan and asked her where the heck were her replies. She told me to talk to her assistant. For those who may not be aware, Meegan has a stunning, delightful and charismatic assistant. Her name is Tyche.

So, since Meegan is “too busy” to answer the requests of the most funnest blogger around, and since that blogger happens to be Meegan’s assistant and loves to make stuff up I present you with the completely false but somewhat silly replies that I, Tyche, have come up with on Meegan’s behalf!

TELL TY VOL 8.5

Meegan slacker

MEEGAN DANITZ

1. Tell me something random:                                                                 While it’s up to individual states to determine the color of school buses, most have been painted National School Bus Chrome Yellow since a 1939 national conference recommended it as the shade of choice

2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.                              I learned everything I know about music from a monk who had taken a vow of silence. He had a very, very expressive face.

3. Tell me something that not everyone knows about you.                            I once got busy in a Burger King bathroom!  (Bonus points if you get the reference!)

       How’d You Get Here Vol 4.5

How Meegan Danitz got here!

It was a dark and stormy night in SL, so I turned off the rain particles and set the environment to mid-day. Having just finished my shift at the Rusty Buckle I was looking forward to some quality me time, if you know what I mean! Most of my regular haunts were being overrun with newbies for some reason. Maybe they had heard about the “easy” women that were hanging there. Either way, I wanted something different to do. So off to the search I went. Shopping….no. Horseback riding……no. Trolling sims for fine pieces of as……just no! Suddenly out of the blue, a tiny avatar appeared in front of me and gestured “Follow me if you dare!” I am never one to turn down a dare, so I took the TP. I found myself in a magical land of gyrating pelvises, flailing arms, smiling faces. But this was different than the places where I normally saw those kinds of things. These people were clothed and there was amazing music playing. I asked the tiny avi where I was and where that lovely music was coming from. It replied “You are home, this is live music in SL and you belong here!”

I never looked back. Well, I did a few times but there was this weird dude who could not get the couples balls in the right place and kept dancing all over me whenever he would dip his lady friend.

There you have it! Meegan’s replies as told from the mind of Ty. I would like to note that no Meegans were harmed in the writing of this blog and everything above is completely made up!

Tell Ty Vol. 8!

everyone-seems-normal-until-you-get-to-know-themIt has been a long, long time since we ventured down the road of the silly and wonderful “getting to know you” game that is Tell Ty, but here we are again! As I was working on the blog last week is occurred to me that there was one Tell Ty response that I had sitting in my inventory that I had never posted! Shame on me!!

If you are new to the blog, or if the passing of months leaves your brain needing a refresher course, you can find the previous volumes of Tell Ty here:

TELL TY VOLUME 8!

Vol. 8 only features one person’s reply to Tell Ty. There was an awesome conversation about pictures that goes along with the reply. When I send out the requests for replies to Tell Ty I request a picture of the person I am featuring. For most this is a very simple request, but for one specific person it was a little more of a struggle to decide which picture to use. Behold, the awesome conversation!

SaraMarie Philly: Does the pic need to be square?
Tyche Szondi: nope
SaraMarie Philly: How about circle?
Tyche Szondi: works just fine!
SaraMarie Philly: Can it be shaped like a rabbit?
Tyche Szondi: I prefer a goat, but a rabbit will do
SaraMarie Philly: What if the picture IS of a rabbit?
Tyche Szondi: Hahahaha!
Tyche Szondi: Can you give me a rabbit with your face photoshoped onto it?
SaraMarie Philly: Do you want my whole body, or just my head?
Tyche Szondi: Whatever, I am not picky                                                              SaraMarie Philly: How about I send you about 50-75 pictures of myself and you can choose the cutest one.
Tyche Szondi: That works too. Or a rabbit, either way.
SaraMarie Philly: SL kinda squished me into being a “little person”
Tyche Szondi: I can desquish
SaraMarie Philly: If I send lots of pics, will you make me a shrine?
SaraMarie Philly: I mean…..”wall”
Tyche Szondi: If by shrine you mean print them all off and hang them in my closet…then yes!
SaraMarie Philly: yes yes yes, perfect                                                                         Then this picture was sent:

saramarie in pain

SaraMarie Philly: This one I kinda look in pain. That’s good, right? Very….musical.
Tyche Szondi: I can feel it                                                                                            Then this picture was sent:

saramarie face tattoo

Yes children, “back in the day” After Dark Lounge was known as After Dark at Rhi’s Poem.

SaraMarie Philly: Here’s one of my new tatoo.
Tyche Szondi: THAT is dedication to the venue
SaraMarie Philly: With this tatoo, RHI’s can never fire me.
SaraMarie Philly: Or change my timeslot.
Tyche Szondi: Hahaha!
Tyche Szondi: I might have to use that one                                                        But then…then this picture was sent and all other pictures were forgotten!

SaraMarie Bunny

Tyche Szondi: And we have a winner!!!!!
Tyche Szondi: OMG, I just horse laughed
SaraMarie Philly: I don’t know…..Do I look too fat?
SaraMarie Philly: ahahhaa
SaraMarie Philly: and hairy?
Tyche Szondi: You are rocking it. not everyone can pull it off, but you own it!
SaraMarie Philly: hahaha OK awesome
SaraMarie Philly: At least SL squished me to be thinner instead of the other way.
SaraMarie Philly: Nobody wants to be a chubby bunny
Tyche Szondi: I might have to make a photo montage!
SaraMarie Philly: in your closet you mean?
Tyche Szondi: Everywhere
SaraMarie Philly: hahahahaa

Any person willing to photoshop their face onto a bunny and turn themselves into a meme definitely deserves to not have their Tell Ty reply forgotten! So….without further ado, here it is!

Saramarie Philly’s Tell Ty!

1. Tell me something random.
I really like buttered popcorn flavored jelly beans, though I rarely buy them. I should go buy some.
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.
I love to laugh. 
3. Tell me something that not everyone knows about you.
While I have played keyboard, violin and guitar in my shows and sung a variety of different styles including opera, my primary instrument for the first 4 years of music college was the clarinet.

WOOHOO! There you have it! Another volume of Tell Ty is in the books!

Tell Ty Volume 7!

everyone-seems-normal-until-you-get-to-know-them

You know the drill! I make the three requests and the artists give me their replies. Sometimes they are deep thoughts, sometimes they are silly and sometimes they just leave you scratching your head and saying “Where the heck did they come up with that?!?”. If you do not know the drill or would just like to take a trip down memory lane you can check out the previous volumes of Tell Ty here:
Volume1
Volume 2
Volume 3
Volume 4
Volume 5
Volume 6

Vinnie SL12B

                                                               The Vinnie Show

First up we have Vinnie of The Vinnie Show. He is one of the newest additions to the regular lineup at After Dark Lounge. Vinnie brings good time and both originals and covers to his sets. We are thrilled to have him joining us at After Dark!

1. Tell me something random.
Dom was walking to the bakery and suddenly a truck came out of nowhere and RANDOM off the street.

2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.
I stopped maturing emotionally and mentally at approx. age 14.

3. Tell me something that not everyone knows about you.
I don’t have a belly button.

I can only assume based on the reply to number 3 that Vinnie was hatched from an egg. Seems logical enough to me!

Phemie Alcott Profile 2

                           Phemie Alcott

Up next we have the lovely and talented Phemie Alcott! Phemie is far from new to the After Dark Lounge lineup, she has been a regular with us for quite a long while! She tickles the ivories with a combination of covers and originals from her EP Raising the Black.

1. Tell me something random.     i really love strawberry shortcake
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.  that i’m working on another EP i’d like to release next year in 2016!
3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you.   I am a cancer survivor! 🙂

I am positive that I am not the only one excited to hear that Phemie is working on another EP!!!!!

Lyndon-city

Rounding out this installment of Tell Ty is Mr. Lyndon Heart. Lyndon has been a staple on the SL music scene for more than a bit, and he has always been willing to stand in at After Dark Lounge no matter how last minute we approached him! Lyndon recently joined out regular schedule and we are loving it!

1. Tell me something random. I love kumquats
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you. I’m afraid of crows
3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you. I have a hit 45 on the interwebs from the 60’s

C’mon, I know you giggled when you read kumquats. Ok, maybe it was just me, but like Vinnie I seemed to have stopped maturing at age 14!

Until next time!

~Tyche

Tell Ty Volume 6!

everyone-seems-normal-until-you-get-to-know-themIt is once again the time to be told! You know you have missed it, go with it, embrace it, it is ok…….you know you want to! Obligatory recap! If you are new to the blog (Shame on you….I mean, WELCOME!) you can find the previous installments of Tell Ty here:  1, 2, 3, 4, 5! If you are too lazy to back read, the long and the short of it is that this is a quirky little way to get to know the regular artists that play at After Dark Lounge!

steph1_001

                                                    Stephanniyah Sinatra

Up first in this installment we have the lovely Stephanniyah Sinatra. Stephanniyah is the pint sized woman with a vibrato that can rattle your soul. You can normally catch her at After Dark Lounge every other Sunday at 8pm. Steph was actually one of the very first replies I received when I began Tell Ty, but I am a massive slacker and kept forgetting to snap a pic of her!

1. Tell me something random.                                                                                       I’ve been wearing a tattoo with the name Brian for the last 5 years in sl. There is absolutely no significance to this, I just like telling people I used to love a man….named Brian.

2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.                                              I’m really, REALLY, terrible at editing objects . I’m pretty sure there is a collection of my belongings shoved down in to SL’s middle earth.

3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you.                                              For my first year in sl I had shorty t-rex arms, I’m not proud but I’m not ashamed.

I can’t help but feel there is a man out there named Brian who has a wistful look on his face right now and a large pile of poorly edited objects.

dick and rasp

                                                              Raspbury Rearwin

Up next we have Raspbury Rearwin, or as I like to call him, Rasp Ass. Rasp has been around the SL music scene forever and a day, and was a regular in the crowd at After Dark. Legend according to Rasp is that Meegan would not ask him to play at After Dark. Meegan threw the b.s. flag on that! While Rasp does not have a regular slot at After Dark Lounge he is gracious enough to fill in for us, so long as my boobs do the asking!

1. Tell me something random.                                     supercalifragilisticexpialidocious
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.                                                  I have never had a 3 way
3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you.                                              I’m 25% Chinese

Being from the Cincinnati area, I was curious whether Rasp meant the food or the sexual kind of 3 way…….but alas, no follow-up is allowed so you can just let your imagination run wild with that one!

Grif After Dark 2

                                                      Grif Bamaisin

Last but never ever least, we have Grif Bamaisin, also known as The Electric Brit. He rocks After Dark with his loud guitar licks every other Thursday. Backed by his band members, the Tamborettes and wearing the funkiest pants that can be found in SL, Grif’s shows keep pixels moving!

1. Tell me something random.                                                                                            I don’t make set lists, but pick songs as i go.
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.                                                  I am still nervous playing, on new songs my left leg will shake as I sing, making me pitchy.
3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you.                                        I toured with Rick James (Lighting Crew)

Did touring with Rick James turn Grif into a SuperFreak? That might explain the pants!

There it is! Volume 6 is in the books!

~Ty

Tell Ty Volume 5!

everyone-seems-normal-until-you-get-to-know-themIt is everyone’s favorite time again! Tell Ty is BACK! It has been a long time, but in my defense, there has been a lot going on at After Dark! Now I know that I normally feature a few people for each volume of our silly little game, but today is different. Today I am featuring only one musician. If you need to play catch up you can view the other installments of Tell Ty here, here, here annnnnnd here!

“But Ty, why does this one musician get their very own Tell Ty?”

I am so glad you asked! There is a very good reason. This musician gets her very own installment of Tell Ty because of the amazing way in which she replied. Now, we all know that there are no wrong answers when it comes to this, but the manner in which the musician was presented with the three simple requests and how she replied to them was nothing short of epic!

LizAdaySOLO

                   The Lovely Liz Aday

Let me set the stage for you!

It was 9 o’clock on a Saturday, the regular crowd shuffled in……wait, that is not it, sorry! It was a late night at After Dark and I passed the note card with the Tell Ty info on it to Liz Aday right before she took the stage. She had never seen the questions and had no idea what the whole deal was. Liz started her set then proceeded to have her partner in crime, Glaser (or is it Glazer?), explain the game to her and then ask her the questions as the set continued. Liz gave her answers over the stream and it was so completely perfect! Here are those answers!

1. Tell me something random:  When I was a child I was terrified of shadows of letters and numbers.
2.Tell me something you think I should know about you: I am just a really..ahhhh..a pushover. I am very tenderhearted, A picture of 3 little kittens nursing on little bottles brought me to absolute tears.
3.Tell me something that not everyone knows about you: I am terribly short. I am a short, short person. Like 5 foot 1. 

Was she afraid of shadows of letters and numbers because she was so short when she was a child? I like to think so.

~Tyche

 

 

 

Tell Ty Volume 4!

everyone-seems-normal-until-you-get-to-know-themIt has been too long…..I know, I know. You are have just been chomping at the bit waiting for the next installment of Tell Ty. Every last one of you sitting on the edge of your seats, wondering what odd little nuggets of wonder we will get from the next round of artists. The wait is over! Huzzah! Tell Ty Volume 4 has arrived!

For those who have no idea what I am talking about and may need some catching up, shame on you for not reading all along! I mean….Welcome….you can catch up here: Volume 1                                                                                                                           Volume 2                                                                                                                          Volume 3

Actually…..before I get into the newest installment, I want to give an update to the first Tell Ty. Remember how Frets let us know that he had been “working on something” and would let us know after the first of the year? Well, he did let me know and I slacked off and forgot to update! Turns out what he was working on was healing a broken leg! He is well on the mend and we all wish him the best!

TwinghostWe start this volume of Tell Ty with Mr. TwinGhost Ronas. You all may not know this (though I would be amazed since I kind of mention it at nearly every TG show I attend), but TwinGhost has a voice that makes me melt. We have had to rez a “Caution Wet Floor” sign at his shows in the past.  But enough about all that and on with the game!
1. Tell me something random: To de-skin garlic cloves, place them in a jar a shake.
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you: I fast forward through love scenes in films.
3. Tell me something that not everyone knows about you: I have dyslexia.

Birthday LoreenUp next we have the lovely Loreen Legion. Her sweet, sultry voice is being sorely missed in Secondlife right now, but we hope that she will be making a return very soon! Oh, and those smiles she puts at the end of her replies? She really means them!
1. Tell me something random: my laptop’s keyboard is missing 6 keys.
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you: I can bake a killer brownie 🙂
3. Tell me something that not everyone knows about you: But my stuffed pancakes are better 🙂

I know EXACTLY what you are thinking right now….you want Loreen to make you pancakes stuffed with her killer brownies…..yum!

FunkyFreddy Republic PromoRounding out this installment of Tell Ty is FunkyFreddy Republic. Not only does he write amazing originals and make every cover he has his own, but he has quite possibly the best laugh of any person in Secondlife. A FunkyFreddy show is not complete without at least one bout of that awesome maniacal laughter. Oh, and if you have never had the pleasure of hearing one of his ambient shows, do yourself a favor and check one out!
1. Tell me something random: i had a terrible job for a few months after high school as a phone solicitor….. and got fired for changing the script and pranking a nasty customer
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you: I’ve been a musician all my life
3. Tell me something that not everyone knows about you: i was born on the same day as Neil Diamond and Warren Zevon

And there you have it folks! Another volume of Tell Ty is in the books, or at least on the web! Check back this weekend for an extra special treat….I will give you a hint…there may be statuettes involved!

~Tyche

Tell Ty Volume 3!

everyone-seems-normal-until-you-get-to-know-themWhat time is it?!?! That’s right! It is time for another installment of Tell Ty, the funny little game we like to play to get to know the After Dark dwellers a bit more! If you are new to the blog you can learn about the game here and find volume 2 here!

Mr. Voodoo Shilton

This installment of Tell Ty begins with the incomparable Mr. Voodoo Shilton, mostly because Meegan and I were hounding him to get his replies, so they should darn well be used right away! Voodoo writes and plays music heavily influenced by world music and incorporates loads of different instruments. He also happens to be one of, if not the smartest person I have encountered in SL. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention, he builds a mean nest!

1. Tell me something random.
If you are riding a camel for the first time, it’s really important that you lean back after getting on, then lean forward again once it’s standing.

2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.
My first guitar teacher was my mother… my first guitar a nylon stringed guitar, though for years i played electric and acoustic guitar and only came back to my first love in college. It’s true you always come back home after roaming!

3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you.
I studied south indian classical music in college and for years played as a duo with my best friend on tabla. Our duo was called “Lazy Half Lotus” and we stopped when he had kids and stuff and didn’t have time anymore. I played guitar but with a special open tuning and we played many traditional ragas etc.

You have been picturing Voodoo on a camel since you read the first response, haven’t you?

Oblee

                                                    Oblee

Oblee or Obeloinkment Wrigglesworth as almost no one calls him because Oblee is so much easier to say, is a master of loopage. Playing a metric butt load of instruments and working the magic of the looper like nobody’s business. Oblee recently released his album, as seen above, entitled Wow, Bob, Wow.

1. Tell me something random.
Mushrooms are not actually the “body” of the organism, they’re merely the “fruit” of the mycelium, which is often spread over a large area. 

2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.
I hug trees, very literally. 

3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you.
I spent most of my 20s as a ski instructor and had little time for music

If Oblee hugs a tree, and he is a wooden puppet in SL, is that wood on wood love? I think it is and I think it is awesome!

Mr. Dark Phaeton

                                                       Mr. Dark Phaeton

And last, but certainly not least we have Mr. Dark Phaeton. Dark is one of the amazing hosts at After Dark. Dark is a man of few words except when it comes to greeting those who enter the club, in which case he is quick with a hello and a welcome!

1. Tell me something random. i like pizza
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you. black is my fav color
3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you. i love working on cars

Who would have guessed that black was Dark’s favorite color? It is not like he wears it ever!

And there you have it! Another installment of Tell Ty is in the books! Don’t you worry, I still have plenty more artists to feature and plenty more to hound for responses!
