New Pics! Train Party & Halloween

18 Oct

Here’s a  few pics from the train watching party yesterday (can you believe I didn’t get one pic of a train? lol), some of the decorating I’ve done around the trailer park, & the custom catches I made for the 7Seas this month.

SCOTS Party Fabulous!

17 Sep

Tuesday’s The Kudzu Ranch party for the latest SCOTS album was awesome!  I didn’t get an exact count but there were over 20 people there having a good time.  Yay!  There was actually lag in the trailer park.  There’s never lag.  And Books made t-shirts in celebration for all the party guests.

There was plenty of fried chicken & tacos.  I even made fried chicken sploders over the dance area.  Also, an Intan dance system was bought for the party & a singles dance ball rezzed over the lawn.  The Intan was the standard package from DMC, so it came with 14 dances in it, & I added a quickstep & the SLindy Hop.  Alas, that was my dance fund right there, so the singles ball was still packed with freebie dances.  Though… with the tips from the evening I was able to purchase a nonfreebie dance!  Hurray!  I splurged on the copy version so I added it to the dance ball behind the taco stand & the ones on the Taco Hill side (Taco Hill, Heart Beet, & Soul City).  After the party I moved the Intan to Soul City, & added remotes to Heart Beet & Taco Hill.  So now you can dance with your sweetie!  Don’t forget the stream in Taco Hill is controlled from the jukebox in Soul City, which is accessible by anyone.

I got a few pics, though I had to turn my graphics down because of the lag, especially since I was running the Shoutcast stream at the time.

Tonight! SCOTS & The Kudzu Ranch Listening Party @ 6PM

14 Sep

Till when?  Till whenever!  Show up & we’ll close down the trailer park.  I’ve got the brand new SCOTS album, The Kudzu Ranch, along with a few others, so we’ll be ditch digging & pork forking for hours tonight.  And if we run out of that before we run out of steam, don’t worry I have more of my favorites lined up & ready to go.

Like Toad the Wet Sprocket?  I do!  How about Ani Difranco?  Me too!  Tres Chicas?  Angie Stone?  Lyle Lovett?  Snoop Dogg?  Got it.  Got it.  Got it.  Got it. And If you promise to keep it a secret…((I even have songs by Jennifer Lopez & Ashley Simpson))  Oh, & we can’t forget Aretha, Nneka, Beau Hall, Peter Searcy, Jet,  Nelly Furtado, ZZ Top, MSTRKRFT, Cat Power, Stray Cats, & on & on & on.

I even bought an Intan couples dance ball loaded with 14 dances, & added a great Quickstep & the wonderful SLindy Hop to it!  Plus, I’ve been working on some special items for flavor.  Tonight is going to be a blast!  The stream will run on both sims, so if you’d rather swim, fish, play pool or darts, query the magic eight ball, or make out while enjoying the music, not a problem.  We will of course have a full bar, free tacos, & fried chicken.

All out trashy or Sunday mornin’ classy, be there or be square!

*beep beep*  Your ride is here!

I am pleased to announce The Perfect Taco taco stand has branched out!  You can now find us at Shilo Falls Old West town:~)

In addition to the Taco Stand you can find several rides & games – my favorite is the haunted house ride.  But, I have seen a couple of roller coasters he’s considering…

SLRR Rail Jam 2010 Post Post

18 Aug

So, here is the post post I promised about Sunday’s SLRR Rail Jam.  The rubber banding of my trailer park & taco stand delayed it, but it has been rebuilt.  It gave me the perfect opportunity to make some changes I had been considering, but were impractical giving I had everything set up already.  But once everything was back in my inventory (& Cherry’s – sorry dear>_<), no more excuses!

Ok, now that I have out of the way, on to the Rail Jam!  I started out riding in a trolley with lander Bracula of Shilo Falls, Old West Town amusement park.

I made it as far as the first sim crossing…  I didn’t get pics of it, but I found myself stuck in the air, with no option but to teleport out.  So I teleported home, & by that time I wasn’t sure where the train was so I just stayed at the taco stand.  There were a few people there watching the trains, so it was nice.  I gave out tacos & beer.

After the last train passed, we went to Calleta to watch them pulling into the final station.  Hobo Town was the end of the line – & the roughest sim crossing.

There was a crash, worsened by the pile up behind it.  One train even blew up!  Of course my nosy ass was standing right there (munching a taco), so I was showered by metal & smoke.

Pile up!

It was my first train event & it was a lot of fun!  I had never been to hobo town, so getting to see that was a lot of fun, too.

To see the rest of my pics, see my web album.  If you see yourself or your train, place, etc, in any of my pics, please leave a comment, & so I can credit properly.  Also, if you’d like to have a copy of one of the pics, contact me with your email & I’ll send it to you.  I believe me pics in the album are set so no one can copy them.

Thanks for reading!

SLRR Rail Jam 2010

15 Aug

The Perfect Taco is located between two set of tracks on the Second Life Rail Road; one of the things I love about my spot.  Prior to moving here I had not heard of SLRR, but they are popular with many people.  Who knew SL had so many train enthusiasts?  So most of my drop-in traffic comes from people traveling the tracks.  (& it’s not just for trains – their is a Union Jack Mini Cooper that regularly passes by & beeps.)  Speaking of drop-in traffic, I’ll also take a moment to brag – if you do an inworld search for ‘tacos’ The Perfect Taco is at the top of the list:~)  Not sure how many people are looking for tacos in SL, but for those who are…

So my point with this post is, today at 11am SLT (pacific for you real world people) , the SLRR group will be hosting SLRR Rail Jam 2010.

For those interested, here is the info copied from their note card:

The SLRR Rail Groups ‘Rail Jam’ is a fun Rail event on August the 15th 2010 – 11:00 AM
Everyone can join it. Bring your train to Bagha Station

It will be a run from Bagha to Calleta station along the public main line of the SLRR.
–   If you want to join be on time to rez your train.
–   If you want to watch just pick a staition along the main line to do so

The Virtual Railway Consortium hopes you enjoy the event hosted by the fellow
SLRR Rail Group.

Comments, Questions or Remarks you can send to DOUGIE Flossberg of the
SLRR Rail Group.

If you want to ride, but do not have a train, just grab one of the free ones they have along the tracks.  I know they have them at each end of our land.  Or, if you show up in time, you might be able to hitch a ride!  If you would prefer to just watch, come watch at The Perfect Taco! We’ve got a perfect view being on a hill over the tracks (a tiny hill, more of a ledge really, but ledge sounds so dangerous).  We are also right across from the Pini Station.

& FREE TACOS & BEER! to all Rail Jammers!

If you’re watching, come by the taco stand for tacos & beer.  If you’re riding come by after, or IM me (Bianca Duncan) & I’ll drop them on you:~)  You know I’ve got the best tacos in SL!

Want your own ride, but something a little more pimp than the freebie train?  Here is what Xstreet has to offer.
