The Duchess’ Closet - Up, up and away!

Our fire’s high and the airbags tight
Food’s low but the skies are bright
Props spinning all through the night
We’re low on cash but seen another target

~ Abney Park, “Airship Pirates”

One of the things I love about fashion in Second Life is the ability to quickly find a unique ensemble within minutes that you can simply toss on. But if you were to try and find a similar outfit in real life, it would take you days, or perhaps months, of shopping or working with a designer to have something custom-made. A perfect example of this is steampunk clothing. Second Life has many designers creating steampunk clothing these days, all with fun and fabulous details, so you can instantly become an Airship Pirate, Intrepid Explorer or Clockwork Doll! I have added three new steampunk outfits to my closet recently that I simply must share with you.

If you want to be an Airship Pirate, then you need to look like one! My closet now contains this perfect steampunk outfit, made specifically for flying the kr…

Grand Opening of the Seraph Club - 7-9pm SLT

On behalf of Edward Pearse, I cordially invite you to the Grand Opening of the Seraph Club this evening from 7-9pm SLT in Seraph City (  If you have never visited Seraph City, it is a Dieselpunk sim, which means a 1920-1940 theme, with a dash of Film Noir and some Science Fiction.

Edward and I will be playing the music for this event together on Radio Riel's Main Stream.  You'll hear classic Swing and Big Band, Swing Revival and some Movie Soundtracks! Edward plays the kick off from 7-8pm SLT and I'll take the microphone from 8-9pm SLT.

Gentlemen, put on your swankiest Zoot Suits!  Ladies, put on your stunning Dior gowns!  And please join us this evening at the Seraph Club!

Farewell to a Friend

This evening I have the honor of providing the music for Greg Merryman's Memorial Service.  Here are the details for the service, provided by Mr. Aeolus Cleanslate:

These 24 hours of programming on Radio Riel's Main stream are going to be determined by you, our listeners!

Each hour during the day will be up for grabs for a specific donation amount. Reserve an hour by paying the donation amount, and we will play the music of YOUR choice for that hour! Here are the parameters for the day's programming:
We determined the pricing structure for the donations according to the number of listeners per hour that we have averaged on every Sunday in the month of June. Hours with more listeners are more expensive than lighter hours We priced the donations so we will raise $100,000 L in the 24 hours You can reserve as many hours as you want Your program must be from music that is already in the Radi…
