(Extra)Ordinary World

First Suzanne Vega, now…Duran Duran?

“When the video revolution began we instantly saw the opportunity to experiment and explore a new form of expression to enhance the musical experience. Second Life is the future right now, offering endless possibilities for artists.”

Rhodes said he hoped the Duran Duran community would help develop the island into a “fully functional, futuristic utopia”.

He said the band was “thrilled to become citizens of Second Life”.

I guess buying Electric Minds wasn’t enough for them. (note: that’s a parody, nyuk nyuk nyuk)

Seriously, this is yet another interesting development, and one that will bear watching. I for one welcome our new New Wave overlords. 🙂
