Our favorite Swedish leather-boy blogger took the first prize of 2,000 Linden. See the other hot photos from Folsom Pride over at Bock's blog.
The Gay Riviera is a gorgeous destination, well worth a visit for the stores, galleries, art exhibits, architecture, and the hot Adonis bath house which I have heard about but not visited. It is very evocative of the South of France and is up there in the running for the most stylish place in Second Life.
I took these photos from this location: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Gay%20Riviera/148/113/23

Well worth a visit.
I had superb customer service yesterday in Second Life.
I was being locked out of an account and not allowed to log in because of a credit cared issue -- it expired and I did not change it in time.
Second Life needed to clear up an old balance and told me to call in to resolve the issue.
I stayed on hold for over 30 minutes (granted it was Memorial Day in the United States) and gave up. I hate staying on phone hold.
However, because I am a premium member, I am able to use Live Chat customer support. I should have done this to begin with.
I opened up a live window, and a representative named DeanT Scout could not have been more polite or helpful in resolving this quickly. There was no wait. And the matter was resolved.
I know others probably have horror stories with Second Life customer support, but if only my ISP, Comcast, which must be the most miserable company in the world when it comes to this, were are helpful, polite or efficient!
I will publish your story here if you disagree or agree about Second Life -- remember, as long as it does not attack any inworld resident, I will run it.

30 - year old television actor and model William Levy is a Latin Idol, and if a poll was taken, would probably by considered the best looking native Spanish speaking male alive by 400 million native Spanish speakers around the world. He is incredibly handsome.
William was born in Cuba and migrated to Miami when he was 14. He attended high school, after which he studied business administration on a baseball scholarship. Levy then studied acting in Los Angeles and continued his acting studies in in Miami and Mexico City. At some point in his acting studies he became a top underwear model and has since rarely been photographed with his shirt on.
William appears in Jennifer Lopez's love interest in her music video I'm Into You, released on May 2. I show this as the last video here.

Second Pride 2011 was held from May 22 - May 29 2011.
Four bloggers who happened to be covering the event danced together and blogger Eddi Haskell shot this quick video-- note the film quality could be better due to the stability of Second Life at the time on a very busy sim.
The Four Bloggers from Left to Right are:
and Bock McMillan

These photographs were taken of Ryce Skytower at Second Pride by my fellow bloggers. It is always interesting to see how you (or your alt in the case of Ryce) looks through the lenses of others. I lightened and trimned the original images a bit.
