The Future of Foot Tappin Friday

Foot Tappin Friday will be on a hiatus until the first Friday of July, i have an interview with Saffia Widdershins of Designing World for SL8B about the timelord community within Second Life and it takes part next friday…

When FTF returns though a shift in the time will take place.

I tried to fit it in on a lesser covered timeslot of 4pm SLT till 6pm SLT.  However ive started to see that folks dont really start showing up to the event until 5:30…and herein is the problem.  Ive been having to continue a 2 hour set into a 3 hour set and then frantically pick out songs to fill the gaps.  The EU/UK contingent who show up to the events cant stay for long which is to be expected cause the event starts at 12 midnight UK time.

So…here’s whats going to happen…

Foot Tappin Friday will shift to a two part party.

IF (and its a IF) there is enough interest, a new social event will start in Brunel which will be a 1pm SLT start time, specifically tailored to the UK/EU folks which will take place again on a Friday.

Foot Tappin Friday Part 1 will kick off probably around 1pm SLT

Foot Tappin Friday Part 2 will kick off at 6pm SLT

Both events will run for 2 hours.  Since it is right now the only weekly event, and will likley be the only weekly event the city for a while, I think its only fair that most of the time zones gets covered.  It means a little more work for me but the playlist for FTF Part 1 can simply be copied over for FTF Part 2.

Theres also a good chance i can grab another DJ from Babbage who can cover FTF Part 2 now and again so i can kick back and relax…or maybe even have FTF Part 2 jump to various pubs around the city with different DJ’s for each week…there is some possibilites.

    Every now and then I could cover FTF2: Electric Boogaloo.  But with this new RL dating thing that I’m trying out, my Fridays might be busy.

    Maddox Sinclaire wanted to have a go at DJing, could be a good forum for it!

    Oh thank you very much, Victor! We had a lot of fun on at your party but it was mostly too late for us. So we’ll look forward to the 1pm-event!:-))

    I may be able to give it a go if I don’t work late. You’ll have to get with me ahead of time and I can give you a yes or no for that week ^^ I work til 4 SLT on the first of July, so I could feasibly be here at 6 SLT.

    Just give me a holler on here or SL at night (through on or offline message) and we can get it straight.^^

    I’ve only been able to make one FTF and enjoyed it–I’m on SLT time–so I’ll do my best to make the later gig with my dancing shoes on, regardless of talented tune-spinner.

    The earlier time works better for me – even dis old dragon needs some dance time!
