I laughed writing the title of this blog. Some of you know, and many of you don’t, that I used to own and run a Rock club in Second Life. For over five years !Exodus! played all genres of rock music from modern hard rock through to classic rock. alternative, indie and punk…if you could put the word rock after it you could play it. It was an eclectic mix and I thoroughly loved finding new music and bands I had never heard of from the amazing line up of DJ’s that word there. At its peak !Exodus! was 24/7 with over 100 staff and was extremely successful.
There weren’t a lot of rules other than don’t be a douche, don’t play Sail by Awolnation and don’t play country!
Just like the DJ’s who worked at the club that introduced me to new bands and genres, my partner Zedekiah has been determined to turn me on to country music. And, it’s worked. I had always associated country music with Dolly Parton and Glenn Campbell (my Dad overplayed Rhinestone Cowboy as a child to the point where I come out in hives if I hear it).
In addition, at our home, which we’re hoping to open to the public soon, Reincarnate, there is an area of the sim that is very much country styled, with a farm and an ‘unbarn’ (that’s kinda like a barn but not). While I was decorating the other day he told me that I was embracing the country and he half expected to log in one day and find me in cowboy boots and hat. I couldn’t do the boots but here’s the hat!
