coming up at Furillen

We have a few events on the horizon at Furillen, so I thought I would note them down in one place for easy reference.

First. Round 3 of the Furillen photography competition is due to end on Friday 4 March at Midday SLT.

I know that some of you are working on this, but others were a little reluctant because it seemed like too much work, or too complicated. So while there are still almost two weeks left before the deadline, allow me to simplify what this round involves.

Pictures.

Of, and about, Furillen.

Furillen in SL. And also – if you wish – Furillen in RL.

Theme: ‘what Furillen means to me’.

So … if you are holding back from this round because it seems too complex, please think again.

Second. The Furillen Radiohead event – 12-13 March 2016.

RADIOHEAD AT FURILLEN POSTER 3

This is a weekend with a difference, because although I will do everything I can to pull something together that is every bit as rich and as fun as the Bowie event was, on this occasion I wanted to go a step further …

So I am inviting you to make your own pictures and videos inspired by Radiohead songs to display at the sim during the event.

Which give me an excellent excuse to show you this, of Thom Yorke, going kind of apeshit himself …

… and also to brag about being present when this happened – unannounced – during the UK’s Latitude Festival last summer. Thom with Portishead, singing The Rip …

Many people are already working on producing pictures and videos for this weekend. I’d like to make it a really collaborative event in which everyone who wants to contribute, can do so.

If you have an idea but you’re not sure about whether it fits, contact me or Mareea Farrasco, who is helping out with the organization.

The likely answer in most cases is ‘yes’.

Third. Abba. Some of you said yes. But I’d like more. All I have in mind is a costume party, based on one of Sweden’s greatest exports. (I could, of course, have chosen Ikea or Volvo … ?)

Now click this, and I dare you not to be moved, somehow

If you’re a child of the 1970s, or a more recent convert to the music of this great spandex quartet through watching the wonderful musical and movie, Mama Mia, let me know.

Want more bad outfits? OK …

Fourth. Other musical events. Someone – she knows who she is – mentioned a heavy metal show. I can well imagine an event with avatars dressed up to the music of great bands like Slipknot, Kiss, Black Sabbath, Motörhead, Iron Maiden, Rammstein, AC/DC, Marilyn Manson … a Furillen version of the UK’s great Download festival, which I will doubtless be going to.

You might not love the music, but come on … the costumes??

I rest my case.

Enjoy your Sundays!
