Kistrel's Spotlight: AJ Leibengeist

  Hello and welcome back!  I baked cookies and have the kettle on with the beverage of your choice ready and waiting.  So whether you are taking a break between buoys or having a read between casts, we really appreciate you dropping by to peruse this weeks spotlight.   There is no doubt this is a creative individual based on the different themes across the land.  In addition to that, he is a very welcoming and charming host who made a rather impressive grand entrance on a hoverboard when meeting him at one, of the MANY buoys, found on his land.  Covering 3 Regions and home to 16 buoys,  there is plenty of fishing to be had (amongst many other attractions)!  Collectively called TCGWS and with it's own hud for ease of getting around the many buoys, it is my pleasure to introduce our next spotlight--so let's raise a glass (maybe light a smoke?) and hear it for AJ Leibengeist!  Q:  So AJ, would you care to share any of your Second Life journey including how and when you found Fish

Fishing and Manners-OpEd by Kistrel Hawker

 


One of the really spectacular things about Second Life is the ability to be who you want to be and adopt whatever persona you choose.  For some that can be a non-human life-form whether it is an adorable cat, a cute bee, a scary reaper or a wolf!  For others it is creating the "person! they want to be or see themselves as in this virtual world which may or may not coincide with their existence in "real life" and  that is ok too!

Regardless how an individual chooses to express themselves or live their SL, it is important to remember that behind every avatar (well most at least!)  there is a real person with real emotions and we should always aim to treat one another with kindness while embracing the diversity of our community.   

Now, with any community is everyone going to adore one another, absolutely not and that is life regardless which one you are logged in to!  I certainly know I am not everyone's cup of tea but I am a damn good shot of vodka on occasion but then not everyone likes vodka and some prefer tequila.  I tend to talk too much, am pretty damn open about most everything and can be a bit blunt and I cuss....a LOT!  Having said that, I try to gauge  when that is acceptable (and often fail!) as I don't want to be intentionally offensive towards anyone.

  

Ok so this post is not about me and my faults but I think you get my drift!  It is easy to make assumptions about someone based on how they look, dress, who they hang out with etc. but it is never ok to pass judgment on someone you don't know and it is especially not cool to make anyone the target of gossip.   One of my favourite quotes in regards to this is "Those who gossip with you will gossip about you" or a more blunt one being "Those who stir the shit should be forced to lick the spoon!".  

So enough with my spreading the love and encouraging a group hug and a rendition of "Kum ba yah"  while regurgitating life lessons we all know.      

While I am certainly no etiquette expert by ANY stretch of the imagination the  following are some suggestions to help keep the love and joy at the buoys!!

The landowners are who make it possible for us to fish and earn the lindens!  They should always be thanked if present on the sim and if not, it is just nice to express appreciation for the fish and/or event.

Keep in mind that your fellow fishers may be of a different ethnicity, religion or have different political beliefs that differ from your own.  Unless you are at a buoy with one or two close friends, it is advisable not to bring any of those topics in local chat.  

Not everyone wants to have sex with you and some are interested more in catching fish than your attention.  If you don't get a reply to your IM, take that as a hint!
 
Upon landing at a location, please move away fro the TP landing spot.  As funny as it is to see someone land on top of someone else, it can be especially difficult to move about at busy locations.

If you participate in the Society, always try to personally thank those who have tipped you.   

In the event a tip jar is present and you can afford it, donations are always appreciated by the land owners.  If not tip jar is present, you can always pay into the buoy!  If unable to donate lindens, utilising your weekly g votes is also a good way to express appreciation to the land owner.  

If you are not collecting mats, don't pitch a tent in the mat collecting area.  I have been known to be guilty of this one but am trying to do better!

In closing, I think we can learn from the wisdom of Bill and Ted and I ask that you go forward, fish and "Be excellent to each other!"
 
Happy and harmonious fishing LGH!

Kistrel's Spotlight: Maja Hallison

  On any given day, we gather around the LGH fishing spots that provides us hours of casting pleasure while filling our purses with lindens!  Some are more of the casual fishers, some are hard-core competitors and some are, shall we say, the veterans of the game and it is here I decided to search for a candidate to highlight.   With approximately 363 individuals to date, achieving an impressive 1 MILLION in XP and worthy and deserving of the recognition, I decided to go to straight to the top landing upon the legend that is—Maja Hallison.  With a truly remarkable 62+ MILLION XP, and rising daily; and overall earnings in excess of 3 MILLION lindens, I am in the presence of LGH fishing royalty. Firstly, I would like to thank Maja for taking the time to have a chat with me and share some of her journey within LGH and maybe even a tip or two along the way! Q:  So Maja, would you care to share any of your Second Life journey including how and when you found Fish Hunt with us? A: This was on

Kistrel's Spotlight: Kasabian

    Hey there and welcome back! I am so glad you popped by again for a visit and I hope you will continue to do so, each and every week! I always have the kettle on, homemade cookies, alcohol if that is your preference and I can roll ya' a smoke if you like.  So really, there is no question as to why you shouldn't be here every week. My next spotlight is on someone who I am not sure I have ever seen fish to be honest although I am sure they own a rod--maybe?!?! Then again, I tend to be cammed at the ground the majority of the time just trying to stay on!  ;-p  Having said that, they are very active within the community and have some of the quirkiest and creative builds I have seen AND they are located on some of the most prime real estate in SL! In addition to the main blue Buoy, there are 3 red buoys you will find here. There is a group only yellow at The Jetty too. There are Krafties, games and loads of things to see, do, click on and just have good whimsical fun! With little
