Tell Ty!

everyone-seems-normal-until-you-get-to-know-them Wanna play a game? Or better yet, wanna watch others play a game?  You know darn well you do! It is going to be awesome, trust me!

You know that awkward phase when you first come to or return to SL? The “What the hell do I do with my time” phase?
We have all been there and done that. I got lucky and met a really cool “dood” (his word, not mine!) not long after my return to SL and he taught me a game that I have since played with many a person I meet in SL. He and I would sit on a rail in a somewhat questionable sim and people watch and play this game for hours.

This game is a great way to find out things about another person. It is also a really fun way to get a glimpse into how another person’s mind works. Three simple statements that require a reply. No clarification or follow up allowed, just the answers as they are given.

1. Tell me something random.
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.
3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you.

Tell-Me-Something-GoodI decided this would be a great way to get to know a little more about the staff and regular artists who grace the stage at After Dark. Thankfully they are all awesome and were more than willing to participate. Some more willing than others, but I am nothing if not persistent! I will be featuring a few sets of replies each week in a piece I like to call Tell Ty.  All answers are posted exactly as they were given by the participants.

Tell Ty! Volume 1

Frets Nirvana Promo

I am starting this off with Frets Nirvana, mostly because his reply to number 3 has me intrigued!

1. Tell me something random. – Life is Too Short for One Groove!
2. Tell me something you think I should know about you. – I was once marketing director for Gibson Guitar.
3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you.  – I have a secret about something stupid I did recently …but I will not tell until January 1, 2015!  So stay tuned!

Now, as the rules state, there is no follow up allowed to the replies given, but you all know you are wondering about that number 3 reply as much as I am!

The incorrigible Miss Cori

Next up we have The Incorrigible Miss Cori, co-owner of After Dark. Her reply to the first statement nearly made me spit water onto my screen when I read it.

1. Tell me something random.
I read today that snakes have two penises. I’m terrified of snakes yet this fascinates me.

2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.
I was a phone sex operator for 13 years.  I still work in the adult industry as a web designer and SEO marketing agent.

3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you.
I have done just about everything “career” wise in SL: musician, manager, venue owner, game host, DJ, dancer .. I’ve pretty much run the gambit and I think it’s given me a very well rounded SL experience.

See how awesome this is? Not only do you get to know about the staff and artists, but you get to learn about the oddities of the animal world!

Rounding out the first installment of Tell Ty is Joel  Eilde of Red Heaven. He had the privilege (or disadvantage, depending on whether you are a cup half full or half empty kind of person) of being the first artist I dropped this on and he played the game just as it should be played. Immediate answers, no over thinking.

1. Tell me something random.
I hate black licorice but I love anise.

2. Tell me something you think I should know about you.
I believe the world is one country and mankind its citizens.

3. Tell me something that not everyone know about you.
I’m fluent in American Sign Language and used to work as an interpreter.

I really hope that you all enjoy these little nuggets of insight as much as I do! There will be many more to come!
