Back to Work (w/o Jan. 5)

Go here to learn how you can submit events for the schedule. (Email must have "calendar" in subject header")

Know a musician? Help NN-SL

NN-SL officially seeking donations of MP3 recordings of original songs from any and all musicians for use as part of a collection to be sold on Second Life and possibly itunes as a fundraiser for Netroots Nation in Second Life. Email submissions to We need an MP3 and a brief amount of artist info - a couple of sentences is enough- and we need it ASAP in order to get things put together in time for the inauguration. Not all submissions will necessarily end up in the collection, but the Rev will listen to everything sent in and try to whittle it down to a manageable dozen or so tunes.

Billy Bob Gets His Preach On

New at the Donkey! Billy Bob Neck will help you get rid of the satanic influence of the Godless digital world known as Secular Life with a live broadcast of Billy Bob Neck's Hour of Bein' (Digitally) Good. He'll be answering your questions about why you should stop shooting crack cocaine into your eyeball and follow the path of righteousness laid out in Leviticus written by God himself!
Be there or be condemned in the fiery pit of Hell for all eternity!
God is Love!
Dancing afterward.

Social Justice Discussion- Global Warming & People
What is going on?  How does the way we treat our planet reflect on those within our human spear who are doing the least amount of damage?  Who should flip the bill for cleaning up pollution?

6:00 pm
Social Justice Discussion- Supporting Peace Movements
From Gandhi to MLK!  What are the peace movements which have shaped pacifist thoughts and actions?  How can we incorporate peaceful change?

January Luau at the Yak

Lord knows we need warmth, so DJ Rocky is heating the yak up with summer tunes!  Contests for best summer clothing and exposed realistic white flaky winter skin.  He promises that Don Ho has never sung Muskrat Love.  Yet.

7:00 pm
Dancing Liberally - The Final Frontier

Forty years ago today, Surveyor 7, the last of America's unmanned lunar probes, landed on the Moon. Today, NASA is led by an Bush apparatchik who seems more concerned with handing out cash to contractors and reviewing presentations by  agency scientists for theological and ideological purity.
Let's celebrate the hope we have for a new NASA under Obama with a little discussion and dancing to the digital stylings of DeeJays Jane and Rocky. Dress up in something space themed if you want to win lindens, or just come as you are and hope no one compliments you on your alien outfit.
Cafe Wellstone

Breakfast with the issues! (discussion)
Bring your news, your articles, and your own coffee as we are poor and cheap as hell.

7 pm
