I should have done this yesterday, but I was still a little worn out by all the excitement and partaying and emotions that flowed on Sunday, beginning with the Awards at the UWA where the sim had to be “stretched” to accommodate everyone. I was not able to cam there, and so, could not take pictures, but it was a very exciting event, and very emotional. It was Jay Jay’s last public event for the UWA and so it was a highly-charged mixed moment of nerves for the awards, sadness for Jay Jay leaving, and emotions hearing La Piscean speak about Second Life and his love for it.
You can read the whole transcript on the UWA blog here
The title, “The Long Kiss Goodbye” should give you a feeling of how poignant the ceremony was. We were very thrilled and excited and blown away to have received the Third Place Award. This means a lot for Nat and I, that the judges this year, found our efforts worthy to be in the Top 5! It stimulates us even more, to keep creating. I also want to point out what a great stimulus it was to see all the Likes and comments and views on YouTube along with the views in SLArtist. It drives us on to keep making better films, each time, and that we really do have an audience to entertain and who truly enjoys our films.
Soo, we took this Team picture after the event on LINC Island and just was sorry that Maria, who looked adorable too in her Team uniform, could not stay to be with us. Thank you to my sister Diz (DzinWiz Babii) for getting up as early as we did and giving us moral support at the Awards event.
What I do have, are some great photos of the dance I held at my bar, Kari’s Bar and Dance, after the ceremony. It had recently moved back to my home sim, after 9 years in New Toulouse.
Thanks to Dale Innis and Natascha, I will put up some images of the Celebration, with DJ Outlaw, and at times 30 friendly, dancing avatars:) Here they come…..
Thank you everyone for all your support, and thank you Jay Jay, LaPiscean, Pookymedia,Chantel Harvey, Singh Albatross, for this beautiful challenge, “Art of the Artists”
Hope to invite you all back to Kari’s Bar and Dance on LINC City…real soon:)
