Digital Rabbit Hole is not only about showcasing my poetry, and Second Life is not only about making films for me, it’s about having fun and about friendship..and a very important ingredient Live Music!! I sometimes get myself in a rut, and take it all too seriously and forget to kick out now and then and just enjoy it all. It is no secret that Tukso Okey is my favorite live musician in Second Life, and I have done several posts about him, (see back posts) When You Run With Wizards, Karima~Tukso ~The Mistaken Paparazzi~The True Story, Flux Capacitor by Tukso Okey and MenuBar Memorial, What Might Happen If , Tukso Tukso Tukso.
The night before last I missed a great show, that everyone was talking about so, last night, armed with a big cup of Costa Rican coffee, I decided to stay up past my bedtime to catch the 10pmslt Tukso show at Benelli’s Bar. If anyone is reading this who hasn’t had a Tukso experience, I say without any exaggeration, you are missing one of the best things you can do in Second Life…or any life. Can you hear the excitement in my voice? Just make a point of finding where he will be next and catch a show as soon as possible. Each one is a total original, and there is never one like the one before. So, when I arrived, the show was just beginning, and there was a group of guys in perfect sync, right below the stage, dancing to Tukso’s first song…
and the show was on! I had no sooner rezzed, when I got a dance invitation from Kiki to join a pretty awesome Girls chorus line that was forming. I mean watching those Boys do their moves, inspired us Girls to show them ours, and the battle of the chorus lines was now part of the show. As I said, every time Tukso performs there is a special flavor for each show, and this one was flavored in “Hawt &Sync” and as Shesa coined, we were the delicious “Tukso’s Tarts”
“Eat your hearts out Boys…We have our moves too!” But, the competition was stiff, and they showed us theirs,
and we showed them ours…
Then they showed us theirs again…
While Tukso was showing us why he Is The Red Hot Pappa, we were showing him why we loved to be his Tarts… It was one of those spontaneous, lose-yourself-in his music moments.
Every one was a winner in the battle of the Chorus Lines and even a 5.0 Earthquake in my country (Costa Rica) right before it was over, only made me lose the sync a tiny bit..but quickly I was back tightening my line…and It was so much fun.. am I allowed to say that? That might not be the coolest term for blog writing, but Fun is what it was..and what it always is when Tukso works his magic…
and all present at Benelli’s Bar were in agreement..
So, listen Boys, last night was a draw… a tie, but I don’t think Tukso’s Tarts will leave it at that… Right Girls?
So we challenge you to do your thing…and we’ll do ours real soon. Now I better take a nap to be ready to stay up late again, because Tukso is ALWAYS worth losing a little sleep over… Join the group, our Family and jump into the magic that this great performer brings.
