Right now I’m not happy with how I tip the live performers I find here on Second Life. I’m a little bit too concerned with what serves me for money.
I don’t yet know quite how good I am in terms of Linden Dollars. I don’t know how much I can earn. Once my stand-up comic gig at the Blue Moon Bordello comes and goes, I’ll have some idea of how much I can earn doing comedy. Then I can figure out how much I can tip other artists, such as Frogg & Jaycatt.
I’m not sure I should take just about any paying gig that Eliana Paine hands out to me. She herself is a comedy performer quite given to dirty material and cuss words, and she’s not likely to pass me out to the most family friendly venues. Case in point being the Blue Moon Bordello. If it’s really a bordello, why does it need comedians? Don’t they have, um, other entertainments not worth mentioning?
She might be getting her comeuppance in the form of a private paying comedy gig for a SL resident to wants his kids in on the experience. That means for a full 30 minutes, she’s allow not so much as one no-no word or she doesn’t get paid. She doesn’t know how she’s going to survive it.
In much the same way I’m not sure I’ll survive the Blue Moon.
