the drax files radio hour [with jo yardley]

broadcasting without permission from an attic somewhere in Berlin [about the metaverse – naturally!]

one month to go but so much news

go outside & smell flowers!

smell flowers?

hey guys, drax here. jo is working on hooking up cables at the recording studio in berlin.

well, we still have one month to go before the start of the broad/pod/radio/whatever-cast and there is so much breaking news concerning the virtual realm: shoetopia,the speed-build contest, fitted mesh making qarl angry and furries being investigated by the NSA. so frustrating that we can’t cover these things right now because of our arbitrary start date….

anyway: to pass the time let’s do this: call us on Skype “draxfiles” and share your story: have you ever encountered a friend/family member/colleague who [perhaps] involuntarily insulted you deeply by dismissing Second Life as a place for [take your pick and/or add] sex-crazed housewives, lonely overweight truck-drivers or underage loudmouths?

have they perhaps expressed to you that online engagement in 3D persistent digital realms is a sign that we are all going to hell in a [hand-woven] hand basket? at least in terms of civilized culture?

now i personally have nothing against truckers at all least alone housewives and i do live under the same roof with a [super sweet/smart] underage loudmouth – our goal here is to gather accounts of ignorant statements concerning SL.and perhaps to find ways to combat them in the future? or at least have a good laugh?

we will put these submissions together in a nice audible collage and air it on the show. fun? hell yes, but only with your participation. so call away!

and oh yes – above pic taken at Eupalinos “Moving Islands” project – the funhouse and dead kids by Scottius. have a splendid weekend everyone! [ps: the first 10 commenters on this blog will again secure an on-air underwriting spot for themselves, their business or….maybe their moms? a trucker friend?]

    What a great idea, Drax! I wonder, though, if some people might be more comfortable sending you their quotes in text, rather than voice; maybe that could be an additional option? I think the things that have been said to us about SL, taken together, will be a stunning statement.

      absolutely text will be fine – we will read them out loud on the show! best to send notecard to avatar “draxfiles”.

    I am a man of few words and I am not sure how my images will look on the radio. Maybe I can talk about my wonderful oatmeal recipe. That only leaves 57 minutes to fill…..

      if that oatmeal recipe contains ignorant statements about the virtual world please share your story 🙂

    Actually, nowadays the most common response that I get is either : “Second Life? What is that?” or “Oh, I did not know that Second Life was still around.”

      call us & tell us a personal encounter of such! or send notecard with a fun story to avatar draxfiles!

    Thanks Drax – first I love the idea of a podcast. I was a serious fan of the few SL/virtual worlds focused podcasts in the earlier years of SL. So am looking forward to yours coming up. I am more than happy to share thoughts on the various media outlets/reporters who have come calling and offered up the least common denominator opinion of what they thought SL was good for (or not). We all know it is much more of course. 😉

      Spread the word and encourage folks to call, leave voice message or send audio in the mail radio@draxfiles.com – we depend on voices to make a good show for the ears 🙂

    Very cool Drax, I think I might be able to share some statements I had to counter regarding how strange people think it is to pay for virtual things. Where they often forget that they for virtual things all the time.

    Yay, I think I’m #10! Oh, wait, I have to have a comment about SL? Bummer….. How about “Second Life is still significantly relevant to Open Sim and VR in general. It’s still a standard that many entering VR for the first time hold up for comparison.”

    • draxfiles

    only thing I ever heard on topic I think was ‘escapism’. and, yea, what should I have said. a smile had to be enough reply and didn´t take away so much time from my next escapade.
