Event: Bootie – Second Life, Mashup my mind!

Sorry, but I have to yawn while I am excited. Why? Let me explain. In real-world on my side of the planet it is 7:52 AM on a much, much to early Sunday morning with 28.2°C in my room, this makes me yawn. On the other side of the planet in there is an event in a real world club which makes me to be excited. Oh yes, sure there is a bit more to it than a club on the other side of the world. The DNA-Lounge at 375 Eleventh Street,San Francisco, CA 94103 and the Club Republik in the virtual world of  SL . Right now, they are doing a mashup bootleg party. They share the same music, a video stream from the SL club is displayed in the real-world club’s silver screen and the club does stream a live video into the internet. So the worlds can share the event.

This is what my PC screens does look right now. On the left screen the real world event and on the right screen the event in second life. Both sides seam to have much fun.

And while I am messing around with wordpress to blog this for you. The world’s first live mash up rock band is performing some great songs on the DNA-Lounge stage.

The Simulator in SL is getting more and more busy to handle the 46 avatars being in this place and teleporting in all the time, the real-world people are lining up outside the DNA-Lounge to enter. The DNA-Lounge bouncer seems to be more busy than the SL botted one.  ;-).

So far I can tell this early morning event is a total WIN for me. While I am nipping  my coffee, while I am listening to really great music I am watching people having the best thing in all worlds, FUN.

And oh yes, after being here and there too…err..wait…where am I? In SL ? In SF via the video stream, or in front of my PC? The border is fading. Following my definition I am where my mind is. No need to have a physical presence at the moment.

And while the only person which is presented at booth sides right now, Keela Latte, is doing her great DJ set I lean back, stop to blog and enjoy the event like some hundred people do. Life is great in what form of presence  you may like it the most. Today my choice is to be an avatar. Tomorrow , who knows. Enjoy life, Enjoy yourself and goooood morning world.

  2. wow, this was a nicely written post – you painted a vivid picture of your experience (including being so frigging hot in your rl room – ugh!)

    next time i’m in San Fran, i’ll have to check out the DNA Lounge, there are some really awesome clubs there like Bimbo’s 365 (it’s a real club! and very very fun)

    thanks for the peak inside your sl experience =)

    Hey there, Bootie mashup party here!

    Thanks for the great post! We’ve been sending it around. However, just a quick note. DNA Lounge is the venue we throw our party at, but it’s BOOTIE (our mashup party) that set up the Second Life party in REAL life!

    We’ve been working with Keela and various people before her doing a Bootie in Second Life for a few years now, and Keela pitched us on bringing Bootie SL to REAL life, which we did this past weekend.

    So this was purely a Bootie event, not a DNA Lounge event. (Although we LOVE our venue DNA Lounge, as it allows us to stream live audio and video of the party, which has allowed us to do Bootie Second Life).

    Again, thanks for the thoughtful post! Very well written and it really shows what it was like. We’ll be doing it sometime again in the future.

    One last correction: That’s DJ Mysterious D from Bootie in the photo at the bottom, Keela (from SL) WAS there LIVE, but was behind the laptops keeping her avatar and the Second Life Bootie party going in another locale (not actually DJing). The music comes from the live stream. Bootie Second Life DOES have it’s own DJs, they usually do warm up sets in SL before the party begins to stream live. They get the Bootie SL party going before ours even begins! 🙂

    Many thanks to everyone who helped make this possible. We WILL do this again!

    • Thank you for your comment and for the corrections, which are very welcome and valuable . Sometimes it is confusing who is who an how things are organized and connected, even more when you drop into a live event 🙂 . Good that you did post it here! And thank you for sending around. You are doing a amazing good job and it is truly exciting. You got a new fan now 😉

    Awww, thanks! No worries regarding the corrections, we know it can be confusing knowing who is doing what — especially in an event within an event within an event, virtual and real “mashed up”! We LOVED your review and even posted it on our site:
