China Tang Empire

Valor Renilo's China Tang Empire sim was created to be a little window into the Chinese culture. Tang dynasty was the height, the Golden Age of ancient China. Today, we see parallel, the rise of another Golden Age. I thought a reminder of the past would be an interesting parallel. Valor says there are many people who he has met in SL who have yet to travel out of their own confines, be it their homes, their towns, their citiies, or their countries. For those who cannot explore the world, and who cannot see - aside from books and television, what lies beyond their backyards, SL is the perfect medium for them to embark on their explorations. And hence, the birth of China Tang.

It took a team of three for China Tang, including Cayenne Republic, ryusho Ort
Most of the ground-level builds have been done with great precision and accordance, as much as SL and space allowed, to pre-existing Tang dynasty builds.

China Tang 2

"Although I have picked up Chinese (Mandarin) while growing up in Mahattan, it was not untl much later that I had the chance to spend a year and half in Beijing, China to fully immerse myself in an entirely Chinese environment - to learn the language, to know the people, and to scrape the tip of the cultural iceberg. I have always been enthralled by the Asian culture. My travels and work in different parts of Asia has enriched my experience, and at the same time, shown me how little I know, and how much there is still out there to be explored -- and this underlines the motivation behind creating this sim". ~Valor Renilo

Valor has collaborated to with Moshang and Live n Kickin to add Authentic Chinese Dancers for this weeks Show!

Zen RevnikZen Revnik

Oklahoma City Singer- Songwriter Zen Revnik (John Randolph in real life) merges pop, rock, folk, americana, and jazz. His lyrics honestly explore the depths of depression, but with optimistic self-revelation. He writes about the complexities of relationships, a desire for
acceptance, and a longing for clarity. Using percussive rhythms and jazz progressions with accessible pop sensibilities, Randolph delivers expressive, Appalachian-tinged vocals.

Mind if I add that to the sidebar of Tunes inSL somehow?

I'm trying to make that sidebar less wordy and more module-y.

Go for it! WE don't mind.

Hey, maybe you guys could come out sometime and have a concert from my Ballocki Stadium location, and then after the concert, or before the concert, there could be a big Ballocki match played as part of the event? Kind of like the concerts at the halftime or pre-game of the super bowl in RL... maybe we could work out something and do such an event in SL? Would seem like a win-win deal.

Check out our site, and see if you might be interested in setting up something with us. Seems like a cool idea to me, and having a concert at one of our games has been an idea I've had for a while.

We will be adding topics soon let us know what ya want to see!

Maybe some more exciting entrances or exits... people arriving on chariots, leaving on rocketships. Things that are unique to the platform's capabilities.

Chariots! Now that's a great idea.

I remember over a year ago we did this great video of CyberPiper... he had this one song where his "keyboard coupe" flew up in the air and all the dancers started air-dancing with him. It was amazing stuff, really, makes me realize how much more is possible than we ever see.

[Come to think about it, I just realized that we don't have a section for some of those old shows on our new site. We'll have to do something about that.]

RE: [Come to think about it, I just realized that we don't have a section for some of those old shows on our new site. We'll have to do something about that.] yes like Unday and Toys for Tots that Freestar and I did. Would be a shame if those old shows could not be readily avail to view anymore.

Good point Delinda. They are certainly missing right now, however, the Specials page is the place for these to be added. On the old site it was called On Location.

Right now Specials (http://treet.tv/shows/specials-treet) just has a few clips, however, we'll gradually get all the old On Location shows across to here, including Toys for Tots, Relay for Life etc etc.

Thanks for the reminder. :)

Dude_Gilruth

Toys for Tots is a good deal.... glad to hear that you did a show about it. I have helped with them in RL before. Very good cause! Btw, Delinda you were right, this new website is very nice! Kudos to all the people who worked on it.
