Episode 5 – Its All About The Sheep

We had such a busy week, so there was plenty to cover in this episode of Diamonds and Rust. And many, many pictures to go along with the show notes this time around.

The war between SL Under The Radar and Diamonds and Rust continues, but its unclear who has the upper hand.

Protect your land and terrorize your enemies with Guard Bot. Guard Bot can be set to patrol, fly, attack, and has customized friend and enemy lists. Its also copyable so you can make an army of Guard Bots. Find this on the Boardman sim at the Galactic Mall.

Brooklyn Is Watching

Welcome to Brooklyn is Watching. “Here” you will be able to be seen by visitors to Jack the Pelican Presents, an art gallery in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. Do something ‘here’ and ‘you’ will be watched, thought about and commented on.. whatever.. leave ‘something’ ‘here’ and it will be chronicaled on our blog (www.brooklyniswatching.com ) and talked about on the Brooklyn is Watching podcast or.. possibly.. ignored.. or possibly.. mocked. Visitors to the gallery might take snapshots or write about what you do, but to be sure its documented, document it yourself post it to the web and send links to posted videos or snapshots to watchable@brooklyniswatching.com

We also got feedback from Will Ross, aka Traveling Avatar, Will Pitre in world. He has a podcast novel out called 118 Migration. http://oneeighteen.libsyn.com/

You can also still listen to his other podcast, Traveling Avatar. There is a lot of great tips, hints and other information for people who are new to Second Life. (And he’s funny! So listening for the entertainment value is worth it, even if you aren’t new to SL.)

Episode 4

This one could be considered our ‘coffee-cast’, as we recorded with Keeme running on no sleep, and Nika having just woken up.

 Keeme won a contest! We discuss Crap Mariners ‘100 Word Stories’ podcast where people submit stories to be voted on, and Keeme tied for third place with his story. This weeks theme was ‘Cake’. After much arm twisting, Nika did get Keeme to insert his story at the very end of the podcast, after the closing song. But shh, we won’t tell him thats mentioned in these show notes. 😉

For more information, go to http://podcasting.isfullofcrap.com/ and be sure to subscribe to the podcast.

The ‘podcast wars’ are brewing, and the battle ground is the mall in Podcast Island. Go visit the podcaster suites to see who has the current upper hand.

Nika’s second art exhibition is coming up on Monday, March 24th from 7-8pm SLT in the S&S Gallery of Fine Arts. The slurl for that is:

The art that will be featured in the exhibition is all new and will not be available for viewing until the exhibition starts, but you can find her other work on Onrez. http://shop.onrez.com/Nika_Dreamscape

Relay For Life was last week, and was a huge hit. Lots of money was raised for the research of cancer, thanks to everyone coming together in Second Life for a good cause. Many of the designers were on hand for the event, greeting people at their shops. Nika ran into Nyla Cheeky of http://www.houseofnyla.com and Callie Cline.

Episode 3

Can you believe we’re already at episode 3? This week, we give a special thanks to Jennifer Holmes who created the “Diamonds and Rust” logo. Nika talks about going to see Tuna Oddfellow’s visual art performance in Second Life. Every week or so he hosts an event that is something not to be missed. As said in the podcast, its extremely difficult to explain. So here is a little youtube sample of what he does.

Episode 2

Welcome to Diamonds and Rust! This is our first ‘official’ podcast, where we discuss anything and everything thats on our minds. The main focus is on Second Life, but you know how podcasts are. We get off on one tangent after another, and talk about everything from why Nika hates Donkey Kong and why Keeme hates Slingo, to the production of Hamlet in Second Life. And of course, there is plenty of banter back and forth. Be sure to do a group search on Diamonds and Rust if you’d like to join our group. You can leave feedback for us here under comments, or email us at:  darpodcast@gmail.com
