Junkyard Blues 5 Year Anniversary

How does a nightclub and community survive for five years in Second Life? Well, you can read what Kiff & Dina have to say on the Junkyard Blues website. And then there’s this, whenever there’s an important occasion, the Junkyard Dawgs come from everywhere, even friends we haven’t seen in a long time. It’s really amazing to see the Dawgs pour in.

It’s Junkyard Blues’ 5th anniversary and this year Kiff & Dina recreated the original Junkyard, a sky platform with all the Junkyard amenities from 2006. I wasn’t here then but I know many of the people who were and it was a real treat to teleport back in time and experience the old club.

In shooting photos of the party and the original club, I kept the Sun at daylight (something I rarely do). I think daylight captures some of that “original” feeling.

Okay, there it is, the original Junkyard blues just like it was on a sky stand where the oldtimers used to jump over the edge for laughs.
Kiff & Dina even put up a photo display to capture the essence of the early days. The thing is, even though the buildings and textures are more elaborate now, the Junkyard hasn’t lost that feel.

Then there was last night’s great party. It was classic Junkyard Blues on that familiar blue tile dance floor. DJ Fiery Otarred was spinning and even though I’d like to mention all the friends who came to the show, there were just too many and I was sure I’d miss someone. Anyway, if you are reading this blog, you know who you are. /me smiles a silly smile

Fiery did the spinning and that’s Dina at the right.
And about the time everyone was wondering, “Where is Kiff?”, he appeared in full black tie, tuxedo, the whole bit. Dina in her beautiful and symbolic peacock feathers and her handsome man, Kiff.

So, today is the first day of the JY’s sixth year. Long live Junkyard Blues.

    I visited a blues club very frequently for years and one night I popped over and poof all gone. I was really surprised cause it was a full house every night. It's sad some sims (like gardens of apollo), or clubs don't survive the Linden prices these days.So keep going Junkyard, think I might visit this one tonight:-)
