Happy Birthday Idle Rogues, one and all. You make me smile every day, and you add one thousand nuances to my Second Life – chry xx
I know this may be a long shot, but back in my SL hay days, I was obsessed with Digby Small’s voice. Then, life happened, SL was unplugged in my life, and so was the computer that held all of my Digby Smalls Mp3s. I since ran across one, count it one, video of Digby on youtube and remembered all of his songs that I used to listen to. I have also since learned that he unplugged from SL long, long ago. So, I have two questions. One, does anyone have personal copies of the said Mp3s or know how to access them? Two, does anyone happen to know Digby Smalls RL name so I can search to see if he has recorded anything in RL that may be available for DL? Help a sister out 😉
Hi Lea, I am going to post your question to our Facebook page, since it gets a fairly wide audience, in hopes someone can help. Digby was a great performer 🙂
This blogger mentions that she has a lot of his works. This blog has closed but she is still in SL and her profile looks current Cami Mahovlich https://camimahovlich.wordpress.com/2010/06/17/memories-of-digby/
