Reader Submitted: "Bixyl Shuftan True Facts"
From DJ Tantari, with introduction by Bixyl Shuftan
When the Second Life Newser had it's Fifth Anniversary events, Tantari Kim was the DJ at the one in "The Vinyl." For those who haven't been at one of Tantari's events. she usually likes to narrate her music sets with trivia and factoids about the song currently playing or its subject matter. In the case of the Newser party, she decided on doing a "roast" with a list of lighthearted humorous flattering lines aimed at yours truly, which she called "Bixyl Shuftan True Facts." It got chuckles from the audience, and yours truly alike.
Recently, Tantari requested that her list be published. So here it is, Tantari's ribbing of Second Life's original "Fox reporter."
