[I'll be editing this with more details in the near future -- but meanwhile it seemed best to get the story on virtual paper! -- Shava]
Thursday night we were up nearly all night preparing for the trip, and after a couple hours of sleep, I took my mom to the doctor’s for a check up, and we gathered our “tour kit” (several days of clothes, the laptop bag, and various promotional materials) for departure.
We left for NYC on Friday’s 3pm Fung Wah bus from Boston to NYC, arriving about 7:30pm — and our tickets for The Residents (Fish’s 40th birthday present) were for an 8pm show at The Blender Theatre, twenty minutes away. We cabbed it, and got to the line, finding Frog Foden and Spagandy (Frog and Spagandy of the Singing Lawnchairs) in line with friends from the area. They had come all the way from Florida for this show. We’d never met in person, so it was one of those odd first-meeting-and-reunions one has with friends from Second Life the first time you meet in the flesh.
The show was amazing. (more…)
Talking with lawyers makes my brain hurt. Just sayin’.
In addition we are negotiating to do a mixed reality show at Arisia this year. Stay tuned for more news.
Fish took his birthday gift card to Borders and got a nifty reference book on Augmented Reality tech. Some of this we’ve seen, and some of it we haven’t. But it should enrichen our plans for Oddfellow Studios, and also our performances, coming soon!
Yes, we live, breathe, and even dream this stuff, but I can’t complain!
On Saturday, October 11th from 6pm-10pm Eastern, Fish and Shava (and Tuna and Shava) will be performing at Jack the Pelican Presents in Brooklyn, host gallery to Brooklyn is Watching. Filthy Fluno (Jeff Lipsky IRL) will be there to document the event in pastels, as live art. Simultaneously, we’ll be doing a special Odd Ball in Second Life, at about 7pm-9pm Eastern (4pm-6pm SLT).
The gallery has named the show “Gateway” — we’ll be talking as much as we can about the tech at the foundation of Oddfellow Studios.
Y’all come! One world or the other!
Here’s the art from the postcard we made for the show (check out the stylin’ graphic from Tillie Ariantho, and the Tuna portrait by Crap Mariner) –
Welcome to the new home of Oddfellow Studios, home to Tuna Oddfellow, performance art star of Second Life, and his beautiful assistant Shava Suntzu.
Many of you also know these two by their real life counterparts, artist Fish Fishman, and entrepreneur and writer Shava Nerad.
This is Shava, opening up our new company blog — I will try my best to keep up the folks interested in our performance and our business interests here!
Welcome to the Tunaverse!
