Sorry, guys, I was going to be doing a gig at Belle's today (29th) but I have been hit by a summer virus and have to postpone it.

You may know Bluebell already as the nifty builder who has made Beau Belle the wonderful environment it is - or the helpful manager who sorts out your sim problems - or the good friend who is never too busy to respond to an IM - or just the little blonde avi who wears those hats! But last night, she came out of the shadows to take centre stage as she set us all rocking with a sizzling set at Belle's. This was a don't-miss event. The lights alone were worth seeing, and the place was packed; the… Continue

There are changes afoot at Beau Belle! Well, you will know that already, since the sim was down for a day, residents were being advised to retrieve their items, and the management team could be seen having long chats at the Cohen Club. We apologise for the instability (only in SL can your home just vanish!) – it was caused by the man we rented the sim from (a broker) disappearing and leaving things not properly sorted. We hope it didn’t cause you too many problems.

Stephs's Wednesday evening gigs are full of surprises, and this week's St Patrick's day party was no exception. As ever, the music was perfectly chosen; the celtic airs were a mixture of well-known and not so well known, with plenty of that familiar half-drunken sound that only the Dubliners can bring to a bash. The party-goers had dressed the part, with our host in a particularly nifty hat and Lill deservedly winning the best outfit prize for her VERY stylish goth irish look. Green lights… Continue

After a RL patch away from Beau Belle (I had serious withdrawal symptons, thanks for asking :-)) I realised I haven't done any blogging for ages. Blue will take my reporter tab away if I don't get back on the job - or worse still, she will set her horde of trained lemmings on my avatar (aghhh! - I am not Richard Gere!) So, here are a few thoughts,
First, I love the way the sim is getting more and more musical. We already have the wonderful Leonard Cohen constantly being celebrated over… Continue

Have you noticed how sometimes everything just comes together to make a perfect evening? Well, it did last night. The Cohen Club was looking good (Lore and Harry keep quietly improving it.) DJ Eugene Gamba was spinning deep, soulful Cohen tracks, giving us the great man at his very best. I added a blend of light effects. The call went out to members, a voice crying “Welcome welcome”...
And they came. We came. YOU came. The wonderful people who make the Cohen Club such a great place to… Continue

Well, all those who didn't make Stephs' gig at Belle's last night, you missed a real treat! He looked great up there, with his control panel and computers and console and headphones, mixing and streaming an eclectic choice of music. It was slow, smoochy, sensual stuff, packed with emotions - he had been inspired to give us Love and Grief, both very powerful themes in ANY life, first or second. But to lighten the mood, odd things were going on all around. At one point Iris turned into a white… Continue

I guess that by now we have all received Teesa's message that she needs to take a break from SL. I would like to make a few comments about that, and about this wonderful island community that we are all (in my view) privileged to be part of.
First, I think that most people have known what it is to need a respite from SL - I certainly have. Running two lives at once is not easy,and there are times when the person behind the avatar needs space to sort real-life things out and to keep… Continue

It was wild! It was shocking! It was... great!
Yesterday, what started as a party to celebrate Bluebell’s birthday turned into something much more deliciously sinister. Of course, I can only give you hints – we don’t want the Linden police descending on our beautiful island. But the place was awash with alcohol (maybe even the RL kind, a shocking thought indeed). There were psychedelic drugs, handed around by a well-known BB resident who looked totally freaked out all evening. There… Continue

My fellow Beau Bellers, I bring you grave news. Last night there was an attempt to sabotage tonight’s grand opening of Belle’s! While a number of people were innocently chatting (with a little mild mayhem taking place around the edges) a harmless looking briefcase exploded. The noise was tremendous, there were great gouts of black smoke, and then the cafe caught fire and burned fiercely. As if that wasn’t enough, after a number of smaller explosions a second major blast rocked the cafe –… Continue

Beau Belle friends, residents and art lovers gathered last week for the launch of Susan Zunimoor’s art exhibition at the ruins above the Cohen Club.
A Canadian, Susan has been painting and showing her work for more than 20 years. Her art is primarily autobiographical paintings. ”The theme of this show is the concept of native country and cultural mix, as well as the multiple relationships that we maintain with the world around us in time and space.” Susan uses a variety of media to create… Continue

I only know half the facts of this story. I don't know why Lore and Harry were trying to escape from the Cohen Club, and I don't know where they were heading for their week away - all they would say about their destination was "it's a hotel". But they were equpped with lots of huge bulging suitcases (full of Cohen CDs?) and they had loaded everything, including themselves, into a cute little taxi. Lore was driving and Harry was squashed into the back looking very uncomfortable.

If Harry enjoyed his rezz day party as much as the rest of us did, he should be still smiling to himself this morning. But maybe parties are really for the people who come as much as for the overstretched hosts? And come people certainly did, 42 at one point, crowding out the dance floor and lagging the sim as they overwhelmed the birthday boy. Lore had done a wonderful job on the arrangements and the music was superb, with Jordio giving us his soulful piano and Calvin streaming his own mix. My… Continue

Filth! It can’t be overlooked any more. We have to clean up our act, if we want our sim to stay the secure family haven it has become. Purely in the interests of community safety you understand, I am forced to reveal some SMUT – and it’s all to do with BB men.
I don’t want a libel action brought against me, so I will leave you to fill in the names of the people concerned, all of whom should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves!

A big round of applause for the lovely barmaid at the Leonard Cohen Club! Not only is she beautiful, talented and charming, she is WONDERFULLY gifted at cleaning the stacks of glasses behind the bar - give her a soft cloth, and she can make hundreds sparkle in no time at all. Never a speck of dirt on that lovely evening gown either. Want a job in rl, Lore?…

To help you get through the dog days of August and the smoulderingly hot evenings (stop laughing, all my fellow rained-on brits, I can dream can't I?) I have set up not one but TWO new displays to tempt you!
First, I am proud to present my new black and white photography exhibition Stone Bones
