Firestorm Rocks You Band! 

We here at the Phoenix project have all gotten the music bug! So much so that we've decided to quit viewer development and start a back up band for the famous in world song artist; Mankind Tracer!

We recognize that music bands in Second Life are rare, yet extremely important so we feel we can better improve the user experience by playing silly musical instruments than we can with viewer development! Below is a photo link of our first performance with the legendary Mankind Tracer!



We are looking forward to performing wonderful music for you going forward. Now, if we could just find some decent guitars that have good music scripted into them....

P.S. Happy April Fools Day!

The Phoenix/Firestorm Team.

  19. this wasnt funny given the rash of account hackings lately - I uninstalled phoenix and told my groups to use another viewer .. you might consider some damage control from this bad timing prank! :(

  20. Thank GOD for April fools day... shezzzz... it's bad enough having one person thinking they are better than everybody.. much less having an entire band.....I was about to pull a Red Fox....grabbing my heart and saying...I'm coming to meet ya Martha! :)

  31. I swear.... I was like... NO... NO... hahahaha of course it takes me extra time to figure out that its a JOKE and...

    ReplyDelete
  32. That was mean LOL... I fell for it.
    I closed Firestorm right away. I even thought Backed rhymed with Hacked and phoenix had been hacked into....

    And yelled and screamed in Plurk and Twitter and then I went and changed all my passwords I could find - SL, Google, Flickr, Facebook....

    Eventually someone answered me April Fools.

    But then, I'm blonde.

  34. OMG LMFAO Great one this year guys!!! I just about hit the ceiling when I saw the login page. It took me a few minutes to realize what day it was. LOL I almost closed the window thinking crap I don't want to use a different viewer! Anyone who wants to throw a temper tantrum over it has no sense of humor at all and need to get over themselves. They need to learn how to take a joke. This one was so much better than last year!! LMFAO!!! Keep 'em comin guys!!
