The adventures of Penis power!

I got the second poster finished yesterday night. You would not believe how hard it is a task to get a hold of some of the designers, even for just a moment. Everyone has either been super busy or stressing with pressures from RL. But thankfully I was able to scrounge up some popular Block regulars for a few minutes.

You'll have probably started noticing the posters throughout The Block. And I have been whoring them like crazy. For those that are willing, I'll be sending out a LM-giver prim with both posters in some group notices this evening. So if you were feeling generous you could maybe put them up at your establishment/home/area of interest.

Last night was actually pretty interesting. Trying to think of something new for a Block party I wanted to book some live musicians for the event. I remember a friend telling me that the owner of a live music venue was a big fan of my store. So I thought it would be interesting to inquire about having a musician play for us. The owner 'Lucius' was very sweet and extremely helpful. He managed to organise a demo with one of their regular performers. Apparently he has quite the following so I was excited to hear what the big hubbub was about. I invited Vas, Devo, DT and Posy and we listened to him play two live songs for us. The performer was EXTREMELY talented and I was excited to have him play this Saturday, he has a great voice and I thought his style of music would of gone down well.

However, the performers ego was HUGE. After TPing him to The Block things just started to break down in conversation. DT was there and like a professional was very delicate and diplomatic with his responces...I was so greatful for that because I was just in shock by the things I was hearing. The performer wanted to strike up a kind of deal with us and The Block, have him wear our clothing exclusively so he could promote us. Though he didnt spit it out properly, he basically wanted us to PAY him so he could wear our clothes. You have got to laugh at that sort of mentality folks...thats one of the funniest things Ive had proposed to me in SL. Heres me thinking I was doing pretty well as a business in SL. I didnt realise what I needed to improve sales was have a bedroom singer wear my shit.
After talking with Zab about it later that evening he told me to nix him. The Block has a pretty chilled vibe, so for someone to climb on mic and potentially bombard the audience with ramblings about HOW GOOD he is between songs...well, that probably wouldnt go down too well. So although I wanted to introduce something NEW to the block party...The Block itself needs to be the priority.

I dont quite think he realises how big hes fucked up. The Block Parties have always been pretty popular and this opportunity could of been very good for him...not only in what I was paying him, but his tips for that day and the potential notoriety he could of achieved from playing The Block . Oh well, I'll see what I can do about bringing something fresh this weekend. If anything, at least you guys are safe from having to hear someone tell you that they are sorry they have to leave...but someones screaming for some hot loving. *shudder* Cheese like that is stab worthy. God bless you Mr. Egotistical Performer!

Peace out pretty kitties!
