Always taking it one-step too far, but in the best way possible, Michael Green (director of the newest Beat D video, btw) is the first person to have created a Second Life avatar that composed a full-length album, which was entitled MEMOIRS. “SELF DOUBT?” I’m not playing with you, OMGv6.0 is taking over (SEE ABOVE).

Like, the entire thing composed in Second Life, MEMOIRS comprises those scapes you only see once, but run for miles within while dreaming. It’s a weird feel to play something virtual/digital for so long and traverse worlds seemlessly on a daily basis. Fucking Lawnmower Man. But also, one summer, I was such a shit talker online, the IRL world left me lost in four physical altercations. And drunk. Though, one can do anything within the URL of things. And OMGv6.0 is purely of self-made fame. The other day, I was chilling on my patio, and fucking OMGv6.0 just walks up, takes a beer (doesn’t ask), and rips the bong I had rolling. Seriously, I threw up data all over and my dog started liking it up: turned into an emoji dog meme gif. I started into the vacant, soulful eyes of OMGv6.0 and saw Michael Green smiling back. And then Being John Malkovich, so I left him there on a quest to find my second-self, listening to MEMOIRS in light of sound tracking my journey. Pure darkness is refracted light within a computer. Black holes only exist in technology.
