Harlem Shakin’… SL Stylee

CLICK CENTRE OF VIDEO FOR REDIRECTION TO FLICKR

I don’t know if any of you have a group of friends who you play games with, but I do. My group of friends consists mainly of my girlfriend Bethany, her RL friends Ray and Destiny and SL buddies Phemie and Garrett. We play games like Tera, to Minecraft, but today we decided to contribute to the internet phenomenon known as HARLEM SHAKE.

Second Life is a brilliant place for creativity and expression. We all know this, and sadly sometimes the outside world doesn’t. But here I am, humping the thin air wearing a stormtrooper mask, surrounded by individuals with some sense of individualism that can be overlooked in this game, because all that second life is, is individualism. I’m humping the air but at the same time I’m bloody loving it, and the angry person with the troll face behind me, and even the horse, is loving it too. Something inside me wants to facebook this shit to my friends, but I know half of them will be like “WTF IS THIS SECOND LIFE SHIT?” … so therefore I don’t, but thats ok, because not everyone I know understands the virtual world and it’s attractions.

My main point is NOT that Second Life is what you want it to be, it’s NOT that people on the ‘outside’ don’t understand us and will never appreciate… rather it’s that we know how to have fun, in our study rooms, in our bedrooms and in our computer rooms… where our friends join us to do stupid things, pointless meaningless things, together. Friends we might only see once a year, once a millennium…who knows…

… Let us not forget the limits of Second Life, let us embrace the limits it challenges us with, and dare to overcome them.

I have had too much wine, so I’m going now to pass out. Have a merry bloody evening everyone xxx
