Interviewed by Alpenluft Laws...

Here I am with the in-world sociology and media communications scholar from Switzerland, Alpenluft Laws...

Hey performance art and identity interrogation fans!

I do not know why, but I was starting to feel a bit nervous just before the interview with Alpenluft Laws was about to begin...I felt like I was about to be psycho-analyzed or something. Fortunately, Laws is Swiss and not Austrian ;-)
I guess I just did not feel comfortable in my own skin..sigh! Or..maybe the kinds of metaphysical questions he was asking did not match my particular performance-artist archetype that as Wirxli, I am so dependent on for success!

Well, the questions got too much for Wirxli so I had to change into someone more comfortable...that is, I changed into my alt to answer the rest of the questions but the identity of my alt is confidential so I will not show you any pix of my other persona who chatted with Alpenluft for the remainder of the 2 hours. Although I will not disclose anything that my alt said to Mr. Laws, I will say that Sherry Turkle would have been proud of me because I was practicing the whole lifestyle of multi-tasking between reality-windows...wooo hoooo!

Since you will not get to see my alt, here are some more superficial snaps of me being interviewed by Mr. Laws...

...even his very first question that was part of a series of "general questions" was extremely intimidating...I think I was about to chew off all my prim-nails right from the start! I mean "how many days do you spend in SL?"...gawd! Kind of a deep and personal question, isn't it? Already I felt my inner-alt waiting to be set free!

Did I mention that even his text-test before the interview was intimidating?

Just to give you some recent historical perspective here, I first met him at my PR office on Odyssey Island. When I first met him, I thought I would just be asked some truly basic questions like, "why are you famous?" ;-) Well, I guess he had some alt-erior motives up his sleeve...sigh!
