i don't get it
« on: January 22, 2015, 08:32:16 PM »
Either my hangover is 10 times stronger than i thought, or this makes no sense.

While i love the banners and articles that appear on this forum board, this one seriously takes the cake:

Can someone of superior intellect explain before i become drunk again and give up altogether?

What bit is it you think makes no sense? Second Life, Lang Lang, or the combination of the two?

Watching the video with a vague understanding of what second life is just baffled me. I think the video itself and the content overwhelmed me.

I remember that.  Piano recital in a virtual environment. 

Crappy graphics, etc.  I think I'd rather have a decent video recording and watch it with headphones or decent speakers.  Not live, but so what really? 


Touring Salzburg... yeah...  ::)  Wandering someone's representation of Salzburg...
