Virtual Reality
I'm one of those people that play music in Second Life. For me, it
is a second chance to do what i've always dreamed of...being a
part of a real band and playing in real concerts almost every
weekend. Although it is a virtual world where nothing is real, the
music we make and the people that come to listen and watch are
very real.
Many years ago, as a young man, I was in a small band that
never made the "Big Time". But after years of loud music my
hearing was destroyed by tinnitus (ringing ears) to the point that
i can no longer go to real concerts, clubs, or even loud partys. In
Second Life, i can enjoy all those things just by turning the
sound down.
In the story above, the last line is;
"But once that curiosity factor dies, will anybody still care?"
I hope so...but only time will tell...in the meantime, i have music
to make...
