Get A Life, A Second Life with the Gallifreyan Embassy and Doctor Who: Podshock
Once again, we will be meeting up via Second Life for another exciting and fun meet up. Best of all, you don't have to drive there to attend. No matter where you may live in this world (or any other), as long as you have a broadband internet connection and a relatively contemporary computer you can join us!
After a very successful return to Second Life last May after having our first in 2006, we received tremendous amount of interest on us doing this on a more regular basis. We listened. We are now holding these meet ups seasonal.
Next one up is next week on Saturday, the 15th of August 2009. Come by any time you like that day, though you will not want to miss the special events taking place that day starting at 1pm SLT (Second Life Time = Pacific time in the US) when Victor1st will be giving demonstrations of the TARDIS console. There are various Doctor Who and Torchwood simulations which many had not seen last time because they did not want to leave the party. So before the DJ and party begins, you now will have a chance to check out the various incarnations of the TARDIS console room, peruse the virtual Doctor Who museum, and more. Perhaps even visit the Torchwood Hub (if it is still standing).
Then at 3pm to 6pm SLT the DJ and dancing begins. Join the fun.. it doesn't matter if you can dance in your first life or not, you will be able to do so in Second Life. Meet up with other Doctor Who: Podshock listeners, hosts, correspondents, regular contributors, Gallifreyan Embassy members, and Doctor Who and Torchwood fans.
We will be recording for an upcoming episode of Doctor Who: Podshock at the meet up as well.
So be sure to make plans to attend this upcoming Second Life meet up. It is a great way to meet an interact with each other without the cost and expense of a plane trip or traveling hours by car to get together. In fact, in Second Life, you can travel by TARDIS!
It takes place in Katrina (Cardiff and the Doctor Who Experience) on Second Life like last time (clicking on the linked Katrina name will bring you to the location in Second Life). See the video below of Victor1st giving an introduction to Second Life and the land of Katrina.
Please note that this video above was prepared for our meet up last May, the times have changed for August. So please be aware of the new schedule for August while watching this video.
We thank Terry Lightfoot and Nik Hewitt along with Victor1st and HBK, for their collective help and efforts putting together these amazing events on Second Life for us and Merlin McCarley for suggesting it back in 2006.
