Breaking The Rules

1 gender bender 1

I’ve mentioned before that I work in a club in Second Life called Breaking The Rules. I’m a host and shift manager there. But I also spend what spare time I can just hanging out, listening to music and having a good time. It’s one of those places where I always feel at home, whether it’s packed to the rafters or if there are just an “intimate few”, as I call it when the numbers of guests dwindle to single digits. BTR runs 24-7, so it’s a great place for insomniacs or for those of us who live on the “wrong” side of the international date line. I wanted to share some of my “happy snaps” I’ve taken there to share just a taste of this incredible place.

While the club itself is a dark, wood and brick warehouse-type building, it’s the people who go there who make it vibrant and alive. From the DJs and hosts to the regulars and those who just drop in to see what it’s all about, you can always count on an incredible cast of characters within the confines of those four walls. I also have a showroom there for Pics by Peep (walk out of the club, turn right and I’m the last shop at the end of the row of stores) and I offer a discount to “Rule Breakers” – members of our in-world club update group.

So, if you’re in Second Life and love rock music, fun people and a party that never stops, click the link above to find your way to the club.

Remember, you’re not having fun if you’re not Breaking The Rules 😉

Photography in Second Life isn’t all about the formal, posed sessions. Some of my favourite photos are candid shots that have been taken in various clubs where I have worked and hang out. The thing I love about clubs in Second Life is that you never know what’s going to rez into the club!

I’ve worked as a host in a lot of clubs and I’ve had the honour and pleasure of working with some amazing DJs there. Two of my very favourites are DJ Maddie and DJ Dax. I never know what will happen when we’re on stage together!

While you may see things in Second Life clubs you would never see in real life clubs, you can count on hearing good music, having lots of laughs and meeting some amazing people. The reasons we frequent clubs in Second Life are no different than those of people heading to their local bar on a Friday night: to unwind, relax and spend time in the company of friends.

Just hanging out, soaking up the atmosphere, havin’ a good time.
