The Follow - World Tour In A Day Press Release

Group Notice From: Kalli Birman

Attached is the press release for THE FOLLOW - WORLD TOUR IN A DAY 2 powered by LimeCoral.

The Follow will be holding their second World Tour In A Day powered by LimeCoral on September 24, 2010

The Follow in SL is:
Troy Shoreland - Vocals/Guitar
AJ Darkwatch - Bass/Vocals/Samples
Powers Avon - Drums/Samples


BAND TO TOUR THE WORLD IN A DAY VIRTUALLY FOR THE SECOND TIME

The Follow will be holding their second World Tour In A Day powered by LimeCoral on September 24, 2010. Through the virtual world of Second Life this band from Columbia, MO will be able to continue their efforts of having an eco-friendly tour. The Follow's tour, kicking off in Australia at 5am PDT, has them traveling around the world, stopping in five countries and coming back home to the USA for their final show at 9pm PDT. There will also be real life venues across the world that will be hosting the live concert via video.

Influenced by U2, Radiohead, and Pink Floyd, The Follow have enjoyed sharing stages with various artists such as Plain White T’s, Billy Corgan’s Zwan, & Gravity Kills. With six albums, one DVD, and hundreds of live performances, The Follow received airplay on college and commercial radio across North America while supporting the releases by touring in the United States and Europe.

The Follow entered the virtual world of Second Life (SL) in 2009 as way to continue touring in a more globally conscious way. The band members drive a Honda Insight hybrid to the broadcast location, they use energy-efficient LED lights for their show environment, and most distribution to national and international radio & press is accomplished digitally eliminating plastic CDs, paper envelops, and transportation resources.

The Follow have partnered with LimeCoral Apparel Company, a Pura Vida surf wear brand based out of Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. Their commitment to create an environment conscious product has inspired the creativity of the product line while infusing it with their “Powered by Green” philosophies of an eco-aware business.  The "Powered by Green" philosophy relates to awareness of the earth we live in and the opportunity for progressive and positive change in all aspects of life.

The driving force behind the band is their friendship and the spiritual connection that they have with the music. The Follow grabs your heart and your soul. They celebrate with you, they cry with you, they shout with you, they rock with you! With the help of technology, they are bringing their passion to the entire world while also trying to protect it.

Group Notice From: Jayjay Zifanwe

NISH & HERICK WIN AGAIN - AUGUST WINNERS, UWA 3D ART & DESIGN

Nish Mip's powerful and enveloping piece, THE LAST OCEAN takes the top prize (L$5,000) making it an unprecedented 3rd time she has won. In the FLAGSHIP Challenge, Herick Straaf narrowly beat 5 time champion Nyx Breen to take the top prize for a 2nd time.  Jesse Keyes, Alizarin Goldflake, Nyx Breen & soror Nishi picked up L$6,000 each in winning Legacy Awards.




Details:

NISH & HERICK TRIUMPH ONCE MORE - AUGUST WINNERS OF THE UWA 3D ART & DESIGN CHALLENGE

103 entries of the highest quality to the final August round of the UWA 3D Art & Design Challenge, and what happens? Nish Mip's powerful and enveloping piece, THE LAST OCEAN takes the top prize (L$5,000) making it an unprecedented 3rd time she has won First Prize for the IMAGINE Challenge breaking a tie with Bryn Oh & Igor Ballyhoo, both of whom won the Challenge twice. Lee Supermarine and Eliza Wierwight shared honours in taking 2nd Prize. In the FLAGSHIP Challenge, Herick Straaf narrowly beat 5 time champion Nyx Breen to take the top prize for a 2nd time. Jesse Keyes, Alizarin Goldflake & soror Nishi picked up L$6,000 each in winning Legacy Awards for their work across the year for the IMAGINE Challenge, while Nyx Breen took home the Legacy Award for the FLAGSHIP Challenge.

The final month of this year long L$600,000 challenge, August saw a record shattering 103 submissions to the IMAGINE challenge with 6 Flagship Builds pushing the total across the year to 841 entries from more than 300 artists and builders. 6 of the 7 continents of the world are represented as entrants hailed from  Venezuela,  Belgium, Mexico, Wales, Canada, the USA, the UK, Uruguay, Scotland,England, Spain, Switzerland, Italy, France, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Denmark, Holland, Ireland, Portugal, Austria, Cuba, Serbia, Tunisia, Germany, Japan, New Zealand and Australia.

Commenting on the win, Nish said, "My thanks go to  Jayjay and quad for putting so much work in to organising these competitions. They deserve the biggest round of applause for their efforts and to everyone else involved through  support and sponsorship in whatever way and that includes the artists, judges, and the people who come along to look and appreciate this  great boost for second life art.  I really feel proud to have taken part in these competitions. I only  came looking for a sandbox to finish my Butterfly house off, but  I think everyone in whatever life they have wants to feel that they have a purpose and  I’d like to make a special thank you to  JJ for spotting something that I hadn’t realized I had and am still even now finding  hard to believe. I can only put my success down to being a bit of a perfectionist and never being satisfied with what I’ve done. Perhaps that helps, I don’t know, but these competitions have definitely paved a way forward for me that I really appreciate.  Thank you everyone who’s made that possible.  I know with the dedication that the UWA in SL has put in to the virtual  art world they will go from strength to strength and I very much look forward to the coming years and to hopefully participating  with UWA  in making our second lives so much richer.  I love you all. "

In acceptance, Legacy Award winner Jesse Keyes said, "I am honored that i managed to hang on long enough to receive the UWA Legacy prize.
Its been a long year and I look forward to making and entering more contest builds in the up and coming year. I would like to thank all the people that have worked on  setting  up the contest and to Jay Jay Zifanwe for puting bugs in my ears on when the build is due (they were real bugs). Thanks again UWA for hosting such a great event". She emoted, "gets drunk and falls off the podium, waves to every one, uses trophy to crack walnuts."

soror Nishi, fellow Legacy Award winner, and winner of the Honourable Mention Prize for JOY for August, with 'Dotty the Dragon' chimed in, "It's a great thing to feel that what you try to do as an artist, that what you try to 'say' has been understood. An award is like someone saying 'yes, soror, I agree'..and it makes it possible to go on creating, trying to express difficult 'stuff'."

The biggest winner on the night in terms of the number of awards won was Eliza Wierwight, whose cleverly named entry, THE SATIRICAL POLEMICIST won the 2nd overall IMAGINE prize (L$3,000), 2nd Prize in the People's Choice Award (L$500) as well as the Rain Prize (L$1,000). "What an interesting journey from working in isolation for such a long time, then the genuine  feeling  that I am a part of the Arts Community  family in Second Life as I do now. I'm smitten. While I'll know I will always seek time to get delightfully lost in the process of creation in seclusion,  it's a  reaffirming  joy when I head back to shore to find such warm welcome as has been expressed in these awards I've been honored with today. If I was to  say that  a position in the People's Choice is like an embrace, then the Imagine Challenge Prize and the Rain Prize on top of that had me  floored with delight. My huge and genuine thanks to the SL  Community , the University of Western Australia, my precious friends,  my muse , the delightful Miss Q (quadrapop Lane) and the genuine and astounding Jayjay Zifanwe whom I am still honing an ever  developing artistic temperament on just for the sheer amusement of it. Again, for everything , my sincere thanks."

The Non-Scripted IMAGINE prize was won back to back for the first time every, by prim wizard nessuno Myoo with THE UNICORN  WOOD EDITION. "I'm really happy and I want thank all for the great opportunity to show my works alongside all this masterpieces. For me it is a great honor." Only he and soror Nishi have more than one piece in the reckoning for the Non-Scripted Grand Prize.

Corcosman Voom, who wan an Honourable Mention for the Legacy Award (L$4,500), also took the  Bohemian Ghost Prize (L$1,000 + 600 prims on the Summerland SIM). "I was very pleased to have been awarded an Honourable Mention UWA Legacy prize and The Bohemina Ghost prize in this, the final round, of the UWA 3D Art & Design Challenge. It has been my pleasure to be able to exhibit my art this past year in the company of work by so many talented artists. I am very grateful to UWA and everyone associated with the Challenge for the opportunity it has given to so many people. Most of all, I appreciate the dedication and hard work  Jayjay and quadrapop have put into making this project a success. Thank you both for making this a great year."

A paradigm breaking piece called 'ANTARCTICA - AN INDIVIDUAL EXISTENCE' by Glyph Graves won the Honourable Mention Prize for Second Life Wizardry. This must see work, uses real time data from weather stations in Antarctica to create an enchanting symphony of sound and light. The technical expertise required to create such a work is mind-boggling.

Gleman Jun was also a multiple award winner as his 'STOP FEAR' won the People's Choice Award as well as the Honourable Mention (HM) Prize for Emotion. Other award winners included Oberon Onmura (Legacy Award HM),  Oldoak Merlin (Casey Prize & FLAGSHIP HM), Blue Tsuki (HM Prize for Immersion), Gingered Alsop (HM Prize for Scripting Magic), Pinkpink Sorbet (Anton Mesmer HM Prize).

Joining the extended judging panel for the Grand Prize are art philanthropist & founding patron of UWA-BOSL Amphitheatre, Phillip Vought, Paisley Beebe,  CEO of Perfect World Productions TV and Jopsy Pendragon, creator of  the Particle Laboratory Learning Centerhave who have all stepped in to take the place vacated by M Linden. They will have the entire month of September to make their decisions.

UWA is grateful to Bohemian Ghost and the Summerland Estate for raising L$33,000 which was put toward the Legacy Awards. Bohemian Ghost will also be part sponsoring the People's Choice Award for the Grand Finale, along with the Residents of Artemesia who have been sponsoring the monthly People's Choice Awards.

The Grand Prize Round is now open, and there is a People's Choice Vote for this. There has been a beed over the past few weeks to rezz all the past winning flagships across the grid. We would like to acknowledge all those who have given up valuable prims and space to allow UWA to put up these flagships till the end of the voting period which is the 30th of September. They include Caren McCaw & Nyx Breen (of the Annapurna SIM), Dijodi Dubratt (Toor), quadrapop Lane (Poorlatrice), Kip Yellowjacket (Virtlantis), Lilli Field (Mysten), Phillip Vought (Acquitaine), Cuwynne Deerhunter & Eliza Wierwight (Patron) and the Linden Endowment for Arts (LEA).

This is the first time LEA land is being used and opened up to the public. One SIM of the LEA cluster has been opened up for this purpose.

The machinima challenge, MachinimUWA II: Art of the Artists, is ongoing, and closes on the 20th of September. & works have come in thus far from Tutsy Navarathna,spyvspy Aeon, Bryn Oh, Megan Merlin, Missy Restless and Yesikita Coppola.

Art Breaker: Two month exhibition of interactive digital art - An established music venue in Second Life, Pop Art Lab will host a major event starting on the 4th of September, 2010. This event, titled "Art Breaker", is a collaboration of eight major Second Life artists. They have been challenged to set up an exhibition made of visual and sound art, aimed at being interactive and reactive to the visitor. The artists are (Second Life names): Bryn Oh, Abstract Baroque, Sunn Thunders, Miso Susanowa, Misprint Thursday, Sabrinaa Nightfire, Binary Quandry, Sledge Roffo. This collaboration will take place over a full sim (virtual piece of land of 65000 sqm). The artists have been allotted a parcel each and been given free hands to their creativity.

Art Breaker: A celebration - To celebrate the beginning of this major exhibition and also remembering that this date is the anniversary of its creation, Pop Art Lab will organize on the 4th of September, 2010 a worldwide event.

About POP ART LAB

Pop Art Lab introduction - Present in Second Life since Sept. 2008,  Pop Art Lab is a virtual music venue, aiming at bringing real life music industry into Second Life thanks to three major actions:

1.            Promoting music by broadcasting brand new music in-world. Four full CDs are constantly played inside the venue and are changed on a bi weekly basis. This allows visitors to listen to the latest releases, sometimes even before they are actually available in their countries and stay tuned to music industry news.

2.            Supporting singers and musicians who want to break into Second Life by organizing concerts and TV shows. Pop Art Lab regularly hosts in-world concerts, inviting performers to play in front of a virtual audience. Pop Art Lab also hosts TV shows, where musicians are interviewed before playing their songs. This show is made in partnership with Treet TV and has included artists like Greg Hawkes (The Cars) and Max Morgan http://treet.tv/shows/popvox.

3.            Pioneering the collaboration between real world major music companies and Second Life activities.

 Pop Art Lab also sets standards in virtual venues design, giving its visitors a unique experience. Taking advantage of Second Life technical abilities, the place has nothing in common with real life - being there is being in your fantasy land!

PRESS RELEASE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Friday, September, 3, 2010


David Rumsey, known in SL as Map Darwin, is a revolutionary and world renowned cartographer, and he is looking to share his 21st Century approach to history with the Residents of Second Life.  To enlarge his presence in Second Life and attract more visitors to the Rumsey Island, Mr. Rumsey has now partnered with the top business solutions provider in Second Life, AboveBusinessSolutions.Group®.

The Rumsey island, which is a completely non-profit sim, consists of massive interactive maps, and 40 wall maps and objects, including globes. These are on display and free to visitors to place in their homes, sims, etc.

After sharing his map collection with the over 250 million users of Google Earth, Google Sky, and his website, David Rumsey.com, Rumsey's expansion into SL is completely motivated by his desire to "give his maps away again and again."

Part of our project is to offer David Rumsey Maps kiosks, at no charge, to Second Life Residents.  The eye-catching kiosks contain information about and a landmark to the Rumsey Island.  We encourage you to become part of this movement today by placing a free David Rumsey Maps kiosk on your land.

To receive both kiosks so that you may choose the one which best fits your location, simply IM Katharini McBride or Diceyy Arabello.  If neither of them is online, simply send a notecard which includes your name and your request.

Warmest Regards,
Neo7899 Collins
CEO, AboveBusinessSolutions.Group®
