Good day Ladies and Gentlemen, and welcome to Virtuallanomaly. This is Beks speaking, and I am very pleased to make your aquantance.
Firstly, a little about the blog.
Here at virtuallanomaly, we will post about a little bit of everything. Mainly things both me and Sky love in the virtual game, ‘secondlife’. This will be clothes, places, people, artists and random items/furniture. On top of your usual ‘secondlife fashion blog’ we will also post about our day, and just things we enjoy in this world. There could be posts about, artists, other blogs, our real life shenanigans, food and more. You never know what may happen here at virtuallanomaly, but be sure it’ll cover all things odd.
So, with that in mind, please stay tuned. [Give us a while to get our shit together, we’re wanting to make this blog absolutely brilliant, but it’ll take time and commitment, so watch this space.]
For future reference, in case you didn’t stumble across this blog via our flickr’s, you can catch both of us, see our ‘art’ and contact us via the following links.

Before I talk a little about the music for this post, and the artist – Parov Stelar, I’m going to talk about one of our favourite stores – Contraption.
Contraption was founded by Faust Steamer + Fluxa Core, two very talented entrepreneur’s, who see the world different to most.
Come, join the rebellion in an alternate world where new ideas and invention are most coveted.
Recently, Contraption have been participating in many events around the grid, so make sure to keep your eye on the flickr pages of Fluxa and Faust. As well as joining the secondlife update group, and popping along to the mainstore in secondlife, every once in a while – as you don’t know what may be newly released!
Not only have they been working on items for events, they have also been working on a whole other story line for Contraption, which will run aside the current story line. Contraption 2088 – Contraption’s cyberpunk line, which is set in the year 2088, away from the wars of 1988 in the original story. Many of the items I will be posting here, will be from this up-coming collection, so keep your eyes pealed. Faust is estimating some releases before Halloween, and I quote ‘Walton F Wainwright “that’s the goal, since – you know, halloween”.’ – so prepare yourself.
Now, before I bore you all to death with my essay writing, I’d like to talk a little about one of my favourite music artists – Parov Stelar.
Parov Stelar, AKA, Marcus Füreder, is an Austrian Musician. He performs with his band “The Parov Stelar Band” as well as Djing worldwide. Parov Stelar is the head of Etage Noir Recordings.
He first gained experience as a DJ, in the mid 90’s, then he found an interest in producing music. His first work was under the pseudonym, Plasma and his real name. He also became a partner of the label Bushido Recordings.
In 2004 he started producing under the pseudonym Parov Stelar, which was the same year he founded his own label: Etage Noir Recordings. His first release, for Etage Noir, “KissKiss EP” and the soon after released LP “Rough Cuts”, provided him immediate breakthrough on the international electronic music scene. His unusual and specific approach to music production lead to a massive reaction in his audience, which gave him the reputation as one of the founders of a new genre – Electric Swing. If you would like to know more, go ahead and google “Parov Stelar”, as well as checking out his music on Spotify and Youtube.
Thats all for now folks, hope you enjoyed today’s post!
