Whatever happened to Gideon Television?

"The last thing I remember, I was running for the door...."

That was eight months ago, at the Aloft. The fog clears, and memory comes streaming back to me, gushing across my eyes like an enthusiastic actress in a hard-to-believe-it's-real stag loop. But as the drugs finally wane, I begin to question. Where am I? Where have I been? Whatever happened to Gideon Television?

Dance this mess around

All YesButNoButYes readers are cordially invited to an evening of mashups and dancing avatars in Second Life, hosted by hot Soho celebrity, DJ Diva. Tomorrow night at 8pm EST. Part of the work I'm doing for Coca-Cola's Virtual Thirst.

Gideon does Pontiac

To all my fanbase - my prolonged absence from these pages has been due to a particularly nasty piece of undercover work I've been performing. The resulting story should hit these pages in the next week or two, and will profoundly shock you all. Maybe.

Until then, I'm pleased to announce I've sold out to the Man, and will be appearing LIVE in Second Life at the opening of the new Pontiac dealership. Next Friday, 10pm EST, where, in the immortal words of Michael Palin, I'll be awarding the grand prize "to the girl with the biggest tits".

Gideon shines at The Aloft

Shining 001
After the humiliation salvation of being kicked from Big Brother, I needed to get away. Some time far from the madding crowd, to get my head straight.

And where better than Second Life's premium hotel destination, The Aloft. What a nice surprise. Bring your alibis.

Big Brother Second Life Diary Day 5 & 6

Two days building and all I have to show for it is one stupid music box. Clearly I am not cut out for a life as a Second Life construction worker. Video after the jump....

Big Brother Second Life Diary: Day 5

Big Brother finally sent down our challenge for the week.

All sarcasm aside, and despite the fact that 99% of you have neither heard nor could care less about Second Life, this is the first truly International Big Brother, open to all, and where peoples of all faiths can come together, set aside their differences, and respect one another's beliefs. When we try to escape the values of the mundane world, and stand side by side as one people - christian, jew, islam, hindu, buddha.

So naturally, our first task was to build a fucking Christmas Tree. Oh come all ye faithful.

Big Brother Second Life Diary: Day 4
The excitement of the opening event fades, the challenges are yet to begin. And so we settle into the day to day existence of life in captivity. It has all the downside of the state penitentiary, except that with...
Big Brother Second Life Diary: Day 3
I awake on Day 3, the machines buzzing in my head. The brass bed I built has all the comfort of a sack of lactating scorpions. I stare at the ceiling fan and croak "Second Life. My God, still...
Big Brother Second Life Diary: Day 2
When I awoke the next day, it soon became clear that I'd missed some fireworks while I was out. More furniture had been installed, more floors had been built, one contestant had been sent to the emergency ward. But...
Big Brother Second Life Diary: Day 1 (Continued)
Put twelve good women in an enclosed room together for a month, and there's a couple of things that you can be sure will happen. Firstly their cycles will synchronize, leading to a single week of hell every lunar...
Big Brother Second Life Diary: Day 1
And so it begins. 15 avatars, one house, one month. And this is my confessional. Of course, there's every chance my fellow houseguests will read this, and I'll be strung from the ceiling like a festival pinata. But you...
Jay-Z in Second Life
Tonight I attended a concert put together by a team including our own Razen & The Muggler. Jay-Z played the Pontiac stage in Second Life, while simultaneously appearing live on the Jimmy Kimmel show. Pics after the jump.......
To whom it may concern
"This note should be pretty easy to understand. All the warnings from the Second Life immersion courses over the months since my first introduction to the shall we say, ethics involved with online relationships in virtual worlds, it's proven...
My rod and my staff
Forgive me, children, for I have sinned. It's been two weeks since my last confession, In that time I have taken hallucinogenics, I've had impure thoughts about my neighbor Lanna, I've fornicated many times (with both women and animals)...
Helping You to Lead the Way™
I guess it was an innocent enough comment, right here on YesButNoButYes: "Is there any sort of drug scene in Second Life for Gideon to explore?" I'd been clean six months, but as soon as I read the words,...
Happiness is a Warm Gun
On Saturday, I finished my last piece, just before deadline. "The Best Little Whorehouses in Second Life". Catchy. With a title like that, no-one would miss the irony. At least, not unless they were OUT OF THEIR FUCKING MINDS....
YBNBY T Shirts
I have a stack of these to give away in Second Life - if you happen to see me, ask for one. No sexual favors required....
The Best Little Whorehouses in Second Life
"I think it's time you gave us something more hardcore". It was Scaramouch, the editor of this digital rag. "A longer form piece, something that'll really show us what Second Life is all about, through the eyes of it's...
Gideon in Vegas
Gideon Television (Superstar)™ reporting directly from Second Life. It's a sorry fact that, when you frequent as many Escort clubs and titty bars as I have to (if only to give those lonely strippers a brief moment of escape),...
I'm Gideon, Fly Me
Gideon Television (Superstar) reporting. When the pain of signing autographs and being recognized across Second Life becomes too intense, I like to kick back at Abbotts Aerodrome, where a parachute and aviator goggles afford me some anonymity. There's a...
