This evening, Squonk was just exploring and happened upon a replica of the house from "Psycho." That was cool enough, but just down the road he found Brandi's Diner.
A Christmas party was just starting up. The DJ was decked out as Santa Claus spinning hits of the 50's and 60's, not to mention a bunch of holiday favorites too.
As you can see, Rudolph was a bit...well...different than I remember. Anyway, Brandi's Diner was a fun place. The 50's style look was very well done. Just down the road a SL version of Graceland is under construction. Squonk will have to check back when it is done.

First, Squonk took a tour of the town in The Great Gazoo's spaceship. Among the sites to see are the homes of the Flintstones and the Rubbles, the Bedrock Bowling Alley, Mr. Slate's quarry, and the Bedrock Airport.

Squonk is also becoming a bit more comfortable interacting with others in this virtual world. After complimenting this young lady on her choice of head gear, Squonk joined her at her table to listen to the music. Though his virtual breath must have stunk since she got up and left right after this photo was snapped.

Above you see Squonk Lockjaw taking in some Star Trek related videos in the museum's theater. This particular clip is a well-known internet mash-up where the crew of the Enterprise encounter Darth Vader. Squonk felt a little out of place as the guy sitting in front of him was dressed in a Starfleet uniform.
I am Squonk of Borg...Resistance is futile.

Dancing seems to be one of the major passtimes in Second Life. No, that's not me dancing, I'm the wallflower looking bored on the stool in the background. I guess we'll see if Squonk decides to cut a rug soon.

My avatar's name is "Squonk Lockjaw." Users are allowed to choose their first name and then choose from a long list of last names. Above you can see how he currently looks. It's absolutely nowhere close to how I look, but I suppose that's part of the fun of it.
One of the cool things I've already been able to check out is the Second Life campus of LifeChurch.TV. I started following Life Church's messages earlier this year. Last spring I was a pretty regular attendee at their internet campus. I'd watch their message on Saturday night so I could serve in Children's Church on Sunday morning. The Second Life campus shows the message live on Sunday mornings. Having just visited two of the actual LifeChurch.TV campuses in Oklahoma City about a week ago, it was amazing at how much the Second Life campus looks like the real thing.
There's a lot of great live music going on in world. Last night I was able to visit Molaskey's Pub for a concert by Skinny Shepherd. Skinny manages to do a great job playing despite his unique way of holding the guitar. I'm not one to talk though, I have a feeling that if I tried to play a guitar it would end up stuck to my avatar's forehead.
That's about it for now. Stay tuned for further explorations of Second Life
