Well, with room changes, overflowing toilets, blocked Internet, security pounding on the door and flakey software we still pulled off our renegade broadcast from within the real Chelsea Hotel to the SL Chelsea Hotel, albiet 40 minutes late!

Thank you to all of you who filled the sim, and special thanks to my right hand gal at the virtual hotel enola Vaher who kept the crowd entertained while we got the Chelsea bugs worked out.

It was an honor to have author and RL hotel resident Ed Hamilton with me to read from his awesome book on the hotel!

I was also able finally meet in person other hotel residents that I've conversed with via the net for some time.

I took pictures of several hotel features and ALL of the art so look for many updates to the SL Chelsea in the near future.

Unfortunately the new opressive regime alarmed the door to the roof and I was not able to take any pics up there, so if ANYONE has any please send them to me so I can make the SL version more realistic.

Bring Back the Bards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mark your calendar for Saturday Oct. 24th at 5pm. SLT (8pm. EST)
For a once in a lifetime chance to experience the Chelsea Hotel in both worlds!

Ed Hamilton, author of “Legends of the Chelsea Hotel: Living with Artists and Outlaws in New York's Rebel Mecca”

Will be reading live at the Virtual Hotel Chelsea in Second life, FROM the real Hotel Chelsea in Manhattan NYC!

Followed by SL Singer/Songwriter and creator of the Virtual Hotel Chelsea, Mykal Skall performing live FROM the real Hotel Chelsea!

Ed is an aficionado of the Hotel’s History and life within the walls that were once shared by Bob Dylan, Arthur C. Clarke, Leonard Cohen, Thomas Wolfe, etc. etc. and will answer questions you may have about the current state of the hotel, what life is like there, or anything you want to know about the world’s Mecca of Bohemia.

Knowing that life in both Hotels can be "unpredicatable" at times you never know what else we may get into, so don't miss it.

We expect this to be a SIM filling event, so if you can't get in, or choose to listen outside of SL, you can go here to listen live: http://www.musicnotpolitics.com/MYKALL_SKALL.html
