...another one opens up.
It's the end of an era. Yesterday, an announcement was made via email that Motorati Island would be closing it's doors on December 31st. Pontiac are withdrawing their interests in SL and therefore that means that the 7 sim complex is vanishing forever. We've decided to go out with a bang, not a whimper and there will be a cruise, street racing, oval racing and a massive party coming up in the next few weeks, before we all take our builds down and say goodbye to the place forever.
Personally, I'm going to miss the place. I started my SL DJ career there, drove my first car there, built a club and car workshop there as well as took on a role to help out the community that operated there, giving something back. It was fun.
However, plans are already being drawn up for a new car culture community, to include Parkade and Underground Resistance, as well as other Motorati Island refugees. Watch this space for more information.
Keeping up the happiness, it's also time for this month's BootieSL party, happening at Parkade tonight (for the last time in this location). As usual, I'll be spinning at the Mash n' Grab session from 7-9pm PST and then we'll link up live with the DMA Lounge in San Francisco for the BootieSL event, from 9pm PST...
See you there!!!
