Kantbe Serious: Rock N' Roll Ukulele?

submitted by Kantbe Thursday

Have y'all ever hear of a Rock N' Roller Uke player? I sure hadn't. At least not until the other day. I was at Archipelago just mind'n my own business sit'n on Coolkat Carver's outrigger with her and Abel Halderman (who was asleep - Kat and I were watching to see if he'd fall in the water) when Colleen Brennan called to see if we could pop over to Tsunami to hear something on the stream. And yes, of course she sent a TP that landed us all in the water.

Sure enough, there was some Rock N' Roll solo sing'n being streamed all over the sim. The surprising part to me was it was being accompanied by a ukulele. Big deal with a rendition of Clapton's Tears in Heaven, right?

Then this mysterious rocker really started crank'n it up. I was totally blown away by Pinball Wizard. How many strings ya got on that thing, Nash Laville?

I've decided I'm going to try to put together an SL rock band. If SLavE Girls will loan me their drums and Nash'll join me, I'm just looking for a good Rock N' Roll bagpipe player. Any of y'all know one? Wonder what we should call ourselves… hmmmm

Mari's Mailbag: Eyes are the Mirrors (Mirrors) of the Soul

reprint from May 31, 2010

"A person's thoughts can be ascertained by looking in his or her eyes." The proverb has been traced back in English to 'Regiment of Life' (1545). But the proverb was known much earlier. Cicero (106-43 B.C.) is quoted as saying, 'Ut imago est animi voltus sic indices oculi' (The face is a picture of the mind as the eyes are its interpreter). The Latin proverbs, 'Vultus est index animi' or 'Oculus animi index,' are usually translated as 'The face is the index of the mind.' The French say, 'Les yeux sont le miroir de l'dme (The eyes are the mirror of the soul).

Since we are in Second Life (SL) we cannot truely see ones eyes, we have to believe in the words spoken. Sometimes those words are elaborated upon, embellishing them to make them sound so full of promise. The person behind the avatar can say things with morals or they can decieve, and it's hard to ascertain what's real. I was always one to want to believe in what I am being told, to not doubt a person but to believe in their words. Without having eyes to look into when told certain things, that makes Second Life tricky to say the least. When you tell someone something, make it real. Be honest or don't say it at all. There really isn't any honor in lying, cheating or stealing. It's destructive and hurtful in Real Life (RL) as well as SL.
