War of The Worlds Stage Show, Saturday 29th
































On 30th October 1938 long before television, CBS broadcast a radio version of The War of The Worlds.

They mentioned several times at the start of the show that it was a dramatization.

The format of the show was that of a light music program, constantly interrupted by reporters giving an account of the aliens progressive invasion.

What the network had overlooked was that the average radio listener to jump stations throughout the evening.

As the play continued, more and more people tuned in to the War of The Worlds broadcast without realising it was a play. Furthermore the radio broadcast had used real town names instead of fictitious ones, and one by one each town fell into the hands of the Martians.

Panic ensued as whole towns, swept in waves of hysteria, packed their possessions and fled to surrounding areas.


A suicide was reported as one woman said she would rather die than be taken by the Martians. In another town there was a fatal stampede as residents desperate to leave trampled each other.

The following morning CBS were forced to hold a press conference to explain themselves and to apologize for the duress they had subjected their listeners to.

Ultimately with such intense press coverage, this catapulted the actor who has played the lead reporter, a young and unknown Orson Welles, into super-stardom.  Just three short years later, he wrote, produced, directed and starred in Citizen Kane.


Join us in London City on Saturday 29th October for the interactive stage show version of this most famous of classics.

Our evening begins with a huge mass of luminous gas erupting from Mars and heading towards Earth.

Across two-hundred-million miles of void, invisibly hurtling towards us, is the first of the missiles that will bring so much calamity.

Be part of this show.  Come dressed however you like, but to be in the cast and to dance on the stage, please wear turn of the century or steampunk clothing.  Men in cloth caps and working clothes, ladies in bustles or bonnets, or as maids.   Circa anytime between 1880 to 1940.


The event starts at 12pm SL Time (8pm UK)

Hazel O'Connor on Saturday



A special treat as we move towards Halloween.  London City's tribute to Breaking Glass, with Hazel O'Connor, from the 1980's Punk/New Wave scene.

The hit film starring Hazel O'Connor and Phil Daniels, and broke the UK box office in 1981.  The film was called Breaking Glass and charted the success of a post-Punk/New Wave singer 'Kate' from humble beginnings, singing in rowdy back street bars, to sudden super stardom and her eventual meltdown.

Hazel O'Connor wrote and performed all of songs from the movie and just like her character in the film, experienced a brief superstardom in the early 80s with songs, Black Man, Eighth Day, If Only, Writing on the Wall, D-Days, Who Needs It and her most famous of all, Will You, which remained in the charts for 14 weeks.

Come and enjoy our live tribute show on Saturday http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City/128/113/23  

The Party starts at 12pm SLT (8pm UK), with the concert at 1pm SLT

Frame Rate drops update



For associated stories see the blog entries for September 14, and September 4

The bug first appeared after the 31st August update for Windows 10 Anniversary edition. However Microsoft said the problem was due to code inside the NVIDIA and AMD drivers.

Early reports say that the frame rate issue may have been resolved, at least for NVIDIA graphics users thanks to a driver update released today from NVIDIA, version 373.06

Of course it is too early to say for sure, so please keep and eye on the Linden Lab Jira BUG-37795

Update
Overnight many more people have indicated that this issue has finally been resolved and AMD have now also released a new driver to fix this problem.  AMD 16.10.1.    So if you have been suffering the frame rate issue, updating your graphics drivers to the latest release would seem to be the solution.
