Grace Buford on CNN (video)

I have hardly been active in Second Life anymore but I still attend music shows in-world on a regular basis.  My favourite musician is Cylindrian Rutabaga (Grace Buford in RL). I met Cylindrian  about 2 years ago. She’s become a very dear friend, not just because I love her music but because she is such a nice person.

Recently, she was featured in a CNN show. I wasn’t able to post the video here because one of the drawbacks of wordpress is, you’re not allowed to embed external flash objects. However, I can use the built-in youtube player, so good thing the video is available on youtube now. Yay!

For those of you, who can’t view the video in your country check out the original CNN link

 
Here is a snapshot I took of the both of us a while ago. She invited me to relax on her piano while she was giving a concert 😀 If you have a SL account and are interested in a virtual live music performance, send IM to me (Jenilia Congrejo). I’ll add you to Cylindrian’s fan group, so you can receive notices about her future concerts.

Last.fm radio – 3€/month

I was pretty surprised to read the new blog entry on last.fm:

Tuesday, 24 March 2009

Today we’re announcing an upcoming change to the way Last.fm Radio works in some parts of the world.

In the United States, United Kingdom and Germany, nothing will change.

In all other countries, listening to Last.fm Radio will soon require a subscription of €3.00 per month…..

So, they want me to pay 3 Euro? Me, who lives on Christmas Island? Why is there a separation between the USA/UK/Germany and “other countries” ?  The blog post doesn’t tell.  I guess, it’s about time I moved to one of these countries, and I will do.  😛
