Carpe Diem at the Commune (No.2)

As promised on my previous blog post, I’ve been over to Commune Utopia again this evening for their ‘Woodstock Wednesdays’ evening. Real musicians, real singer/songwriters playing live, at home, and feeding the sound into SL. What a great thing that is!

There’s no story (again). I’ll leave the real stories to the wordsmiths, Ella and Pookes. Instead, I’ve just captioned raw photos to capture a sense of the fun.

In hippy parlance, ‘where it’s at, man!’. Come on, get over to the Commune now!

Pookes turned up right at the end. She and I danced topless, performer Dango isn’t sure what to make of it! 🙂 And that bloody butterfly is photobombing us!

Bric shows off his moves while Hilaire and Mae appear to be deep in conversation.

Pookes and I finally got a sit down. I can’t believe how sad I look in this pic, lol!

A splendid time is guaranteed for all, as it says on the sleeve to the Sergeant Pepper album.


Same time next week, boys and girls? I hope so.


Carpe Diem at the Commune

The plan is to go to Commune Utopia this evening, Wednesday, for their ‘Woodstock Wednesdays’ night. In anticipation of that I teleported over there last night, Tuesday, with the intention of checking out who was playing tonight and also getting a few general overview shots.

The night’s events took a rather different turn and it all got to be such wild fun that I ended up still in SL at 1.30am with a 700am alarm call ahead of me.

Firstly I ran into WTF, a friend of Ella’s, who introduced me to Chim, his partner and they, in turn introduced me to Hilaire, one of the Commune’s helpers.

You know how it works with SLN. First I mention that we should do a couple of group, nude shots and the next thing I know I’m in the middle of a conga line, followed by a jacuzzi crammed with naked bods, everyone chattering away, and then another little naked photo session with new arrivals.

There’s no ‘story’ as such. We turned up, we got naked and we had so much fun it was incredible. Really, is there anywhere in SL that can match the naked sociability of Commune Utopia right now? Clearly it’s all about ‘carpe diem’, seizing the day, and that’s something we did last night. 🙂
