The results for the SL Avi Choice Awards were announced over the weekend, and the Favourite Group Award went to the Builder’s Brewery group 🙂
It was a well-deserved victory for a very worthwhile group who have been running in-world for years, and have thousands of members. They run regular building tutorial events and really have contributed a massive amount to the SL experience – so we would like to extend our congratulations to our worthy opponents.
Once again, Sword and I would like to thank all our dear friends and guests for nominating the Caffeine Nights group. Just being involved at all in the ceremony was a great thrill and we are honoured and touched at being nominated.
Sword was presented with a trophy as a nominated and participating group, which is on proud display at the club for anyone who wants to come and see it 🙂
And who knows……maybe next year 😉
We are deeply honoured and touched that our lovely guests have nominated our little club and it’s associated group of Caffeine Nights as their favourite group in SL! 🙂

Sword & Anouk
The very lovely Mr G-Winz played a magnificent set at Marcel’s last night – running through the entire album of The Who’s ‘Pinball Wizard’. It was a real treat to hear all those great songs again, and with G’s snippets of storytelling throughout the evening, we could all re-live the complex, dark and twisted tale of Tommy, the tormented deaf, dumb and blind pinball playing whizzkid.
Listening to the tunes and hearing G tell the story really reminded me of just what an outstanding piece of musical rock ‘opera’ musical this was, and it’s definitely made me want to get the Ken Russell movie to add to my collection. If you haven’t seen the movie and you’re a Who fan, I would highly recommend it.
I know I will probably get battered by the Who purists out there for saying this, but much as I loved hearing the original Who soundtrack last night, I have to say that I personally preferred the movie version of the soundtrack, where the tracks were performed by the various artists playing the roles in the story. Once you’ve heard Tina Turner belt out her version of ‘Gypsy, The Acid Queen’, the Who’s version pales in comparison.
So thank you again to Mr G-Winz for a fabulous evening, and as ever, here are a few piccies from the event. (I had a great time dressing Lord Andy for the night, so that he could come as our own pinball wizard).
