The Privates, The Shenganiguns, The Metaverse and the power of music

By mildandred | Short Films Rock! | 23 Nov 2021


There is no denying that there is power in music. The Privates, a band that should be in The Rocklopedia Fakebandica, discover that there is radioactive power in their music. "On the eve of their first (and possibly last) show, they must decide whether to risk life, limb and legacy for a 1 AM slot on a Tuesday. It could change everything...or nothing at all."

With great power comes great responsibility. The Privates make the very irresponsible decision to go ahead with a show that could catapult them to celebrity status but that could also potentially, you know, kill everyone at the venue.

In my post, "To Metaverse or Not To Metaverse: The Shenganiguns and The Uteo Tour" I use a correspondent of The Vlogtastic Show to explore the pros and cons of creatives like The Shenganiguns, jumping on the Metaverse bandwagon. On one hand, the potential is limitless and will make it more inclusive for fans who would otherwise not be able to access their favourite bands live. 

On the other hand...MarvinScottMarvin, in his article "Facebook is Dead. Welcome to the Zombieverse!" points out all that could go wrong.

Creatives will play a big role in making The Metaverse mega-popular. Vincent Tabora in his article "The Metaverse: A New World For Digital Creatives" writes: "Just like living in the real world, virtual worlds will need some form of amusement and entertainment. This is where creatives come into the picture by providing content that holds real world value and property rights."

What if our creations turn out to be radioactive, frying brains, burning up relationships, zombifying humanity?

Get back what's gone around and you've been keeping"
