SLRFL is kicking Cancer’s butt! But good!

Holy Schnikes! SLRFL (Second Life Relay For Life) is at L$4,292,497 as I write this! That would cost one about 16 grand USD to purchase that many Linden, to give you non-SL folks an idea of what kinda cash we’re talking about here.

Fund raising started at 2 pm Pacific on Saturday March 15th, and it’s about 8:30 pm Pacific on Wednesday the 19th! Our goal for the entire campaign is to raise $ 150,000 (US dollars), 20% of which will go to international “sister” Cancer Societies, 80% will stay in the USA for research, as well as to help those surviving and fighting cancer.

RadioRadio is one of the 81 teams (at last count) formed in SL to raise funds. We’re running about 18th or so as far as total funds collected but as I pointed out earlier, things are just getting going!

Frankly I’d love folks to donate to the RadioRadio team of course, but really, ANY donations going to the American Cancer Society is the point. Who doesn’t want to see all cancer eliminated, relegated to the history books?

More to come!

Here’s two links with information and suggestions on how to keep internet radio (RadioRadio, NPR, and everyone else inbetween) legal, affordable and doable. The time is now, action is needed or we’ll all lose so much I doubt we can quantify it.

Please understand the danger is real, more than likely if this pile of steaming you-know-what isn’t turned around in Congress, that will be the end of RadioRadio and just about every podcaster, streaming station or interesting bit of audio online that you’ve ever enjoyed or ever might possibly enjoy in the future. This legislation is hateful and nauseating.

Hate Crime Takes the Life of One More …

Andrew Anthos, a 72 year-old Detroit man was brutally attacked on Feb. 13th, and died of the resultant injuries yesterday. I am just sick that this happened, that these types of things still happen and that I know it is yet going to be a long time before hate crimes are relegated to historical fact instead of contemporary issues. Full article here on Andrew Anthos from Gay dot com.

MSN picks up the story of Andrew Anthos’ death.


I Snapzilla’d the vigil for Anthony Anthos, in progress in Provincetown sim.

Actually we kept up the vigil overnight, I loaded up the playlist w/more jazz, blues and ragtime and then let my avie idle there. Folks dropped in overnight, hung out for a while too. So today, Vertigo Paris has the stream now and is continuing with us here in Provincetown sim.

Fresh Snapzilla pic of the memorial and linkage for those of you in Second Life to join us.
