Billy Bob Gets His Preach On

Does the whole right wing/left wing argument leave you asking, "what about the God wing"?  Stop by the Hour of Bein' Good at 6pm SLT on Monday's at the Democrat Donkey Cafe for an hour of no-nonsense sense instead of the pro-nonsense nonsense that everybody else gonna give you.  You're gonna hear the truth straight from God's mouth.  And lest you think I'm gonna judge you, remember that only God can judge you - I'm just here to tell you what he's gonna say.
God is Love!
Dancing afterward.

Dancing Liberally - Love, Fear, and Loathing: A V-Day and and Anti-V-Day party

There are basically three responses to "Will you be my valentine?" They are: "yes," laughter, "I'm getting a restraining order." For some, V-Day is a time to share one's love with another. For other's it's a great day to listen to the screams of cupids as you blow them away with your .44 Colt Python. No matter your perspective, this is the omly Valentine Party you need to attend. So join us at Jillan's place, The Hetstence Ranch. Muskrats Rocky and Jane will be spinning the best love and slaughering cupid songs, and Lindens will be given to those with the most approriate or inappropriate outfits.


7 pm

We asked and you answered! Fez Records went looking for your musical contributions for a downloadable album to raise money for Netroots Nation in Second Life and you came through. Now, its time to celebrate the release of "The Revolution Will Be Streamed"  - available now at Amazon.com and soon on iTunes. We are having an album release party on Saturday from 7 pm SLT with live performances from some of the people who contributed to the album, including podcasting king Caleb Bullen, professional conscience Billy Bob Neck and SL's own Klipe Wirefly. This is an event not to be missed! We will start off at 7 pm at the Netroot Nations Ballroom and play the whole 14 track album from about 8 pm SLT and then keep the party going all night long.
