First like to say… Welcome to the family:
It took a bit to get everything going but I am happy to say that it is alive and kickin’ ass. Depraved Nation is something that everyone can be a part of. I have done a lot of things in Second Life in the last 4 years. Worked places, ran places, worked more places… the more I did the more I saw what people liked and didn’t like. I became borderline obsessed with SL content creation and have many people I look up to in SL. Incredible talent, sweat, and blood has brought a lot of the things to SL that many take for granted. I have spent countless hours trying to pose as one of these creators :). I bring into Depraved Nation =RAZORBLADE JACKET=, my new main store (see the flickr Feed for releases and the Link on this blog for more information).
I also have had issues somewhat with the way the club system works in SL. I had my own club for a long time in SL and it becomes a fight for traffic count and contest money. I believe this system gets rid of the true spirit of what we are there for.. which is to hang with friends and listen to music. Instead the Depraved Nation has created a DJ Hub. Some of the best DJs I know are part of a group called DEPRAVED AFFILIATION (Free Join just search it in Groups). We send out notices about places and good parties going on all over Second Life. We also have 1 group party a week at the Depraved DJ Hub in the concrete garden. So Join up and come Kick it.
Depraved Nation has also found home to over 40 Creators and Growing at the Depraved Market. One of the most talented group of creators and malls on Second Life. See the Depraved Market Link in this Blog page to view the creators at the Depraved Market. We do Weekly Sim wide Hunts with different Depraved Dealers Participating.
We have also spent a great deal of time putting together hunts and being in Grid wide hunts at Depraved Nation. =RAZORBLADE JACKET= is in an average of 5 hunts a month. We are also hosting an over 150 Vendor Grid Wide hunt in November called “THE DIRTY TURKEY HUNT.” Click on the Depraved Hunt link to see those vendors Participation. We have more regular hosted hunts coming up in the near future.
=RAZORBLADE JACKET= participates in all charity events possible. We are currently in the Call to Couture Fair and Horror fest, both exceptional Charity events. Search them in World.
Depraved Nation is something I am happy to have helped create but it has been a joint effort for all involved. Great, positive, kick ass people that make me enjoy logging on this game every day. Heather Smithson has done a huge amount of work organizing and leading the way, All the creators in the mall… all the DJs that help throw the parties and give us a places to hang out… and mostly – all the people that create a nation of imperfect, fucked up, awesome shit.
This place belongs to all of you and I am stoked you all want to hang around….
Peace (but not hippy peace),
