I do love technology. Not in the sense that I have to have all the latest gadgets, no actually I’m quite old fashioned in that respect, I love old tech with valves and tape. But I do love reading about the latest advancements in science and my browser bookmarks are choc full of tech and [...]
I’d like to find new things in SL to renew my passion for writing about it. I actually still explore to a certain extent, though I realize that for years now I’ve been typing the same keywords in to find places and I need to mix that up a bit. Some I tend to type [...]
In Second Life, on more than one occasion, my dress sense has been likened to that of Alice in Wonderland. Not so much lately, but I used to wear this Japanese girly style and 95% of my clothing came from Barerose. Hey, it’s Second Life — don’t hold it against me! If others can wear [...]

Guest Article By Slate McLeod I recently showed my completed mesh Aston Martin to Shauna, and she suggested I write an article about it. I’ve always loved the James Bond Aston Martin from Goldfinger ever since I was a kid, and like most boys of my age had hours of fun with the Corgi toy [...]
I’ve not posted as much lately, but yes I’m still here! I’ve just been overly busy and have a bit of writer’s block. However, we have a guest writer tomorrow: Slate McLeod! Be sure to tune in to see what the king of the mods has to say.
If you’re a man joining Second Life you will very quickly discover that this is not a place of equal opportunities. From your first venture to a freebie clothing store you’ll notice that the odds of finding anything decent to wear are highly weighted against you. And as you progress in your Second Life you’ll [...]
Went to see Star Trek Into Darkness tonight. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Benjamin Cumberbatch aka BBC’s “Sherlock” was the perfect bad guy. This movie trailer doesn’t do it justice.
Just want to say thanks to the gang at Soul Mods for the birthday wishes, to Dugi Rubble for rezzing a load of balloons — I know he puts a lot of time and effort into doing that, Slate McLeod for making a sign, Barbie Bohemian for sending me a pressie on behalf of her [...]
I’ve decided to make the church I built free of charge to anyone who wants it. I don’t usually make buildings, but this is not too bad if I say so myself. It comes with one prim pews with menu driven sits, a cross, and a couple of banners for the wall. You can copy [...]
Julian threw this video together of Comicon.
I didn’t log in to Second Life tonight because I was busy doing the next best thing: Comicon! That’s right, I was at a convention for total geeks — and I mean that in the nicest possible way. There were members of all kinds of sci-fi shows there: Star Trek, Stargate SG1, The Walking Dead [...]
Shauna has writer’s block.
Felicia Ibanez (aka “Feli”) sent me this notice. FUSION DANCE CREW PRESENTS: 1001 ARABIAN NIGHTS TODAY Saturday, May 25 – 1PM SLT @ The Fusion Performing Arts Center Fusion Dance Crew performs five dance routines that present the centuries old myths and legends that became the 1001 Arabian Nights tales of old. Using our signature [...]
I’ll be DJ-ing at Soul Mods tonight, 1pm Second Life Time (9pm UK). If you like The Kinks, The Who, Small Faces, Motown, and ska come join us. Visit Inworld: Soul Mods
Found an interesting place called The Corner of Revolving Time. It has furniture, kitchens, beds, plants, decor, houses, and party items among other things. All looks pretty decent too. But you know what the best part is? Everything in the store is free! So if you need a few things check this place out before [...]
Some interest was shown in the reBourne skybox I mentioned the other day. Since their discount price of $6,250 is still pretty steep for many of us, I thought I’d share a less expensive option from The Dreamer Creations. It’s a Sky Dome 100 x 100 (so yes, you do need to have some space [...]
Founding keyboardist of the Doors Ray Manzarek has passed away today in Germany. The cause according to his publicist was bile duct cancer. He was 74. This is sad news. Our prayers go out to Ray’s family, friends, and fans.
OK it’s not really summer yet, and the livin’ isn’t actually THAT easy EVER, but the weather this weekend has been splendid here and I even got to enjoy a kick-about in the park with my bandmates without freezing to death. Surprisingly even the London air tasted better this weekend, like the blanket of traffic dioxins and [...]
If you want a home in the sky but aren’t sure what environment you’d like with it, reBourne has released a multi-scene skybox. It contains 111 backgrounds to choose from. It does come with a building but that’s really just a viewing area rather than a home. If you prefer, you can remove that and [...]
Hard to believe that I have an entire town in Second Life but no real “home” in the residential sense. Not long ago I was building on one — even had it looking cool enough to invite Paypabak Writer over to watch telly with me. But then disaster struck. Much of the house got ruined [...]
Ever just meet a person in Second Life and while you’re in the middle of an interesting conversation your computer decides to crash? That happened to me tonight. Right in the middle of a chat my computer morphed into a blue screen and said it was going to restart due to some “errors”. There was [...]
While visiting Seren’s blog and having a laugh at her post about being scary, lo and behold I saw myself listed as “officially the scariest person in sl ever.” YEE YAW! I have arrived! (She was just teasing, but I’ll take it as a compliment anyway.)
Hi, my name is Graz and I’m an impulsiveaholic. There I’ve done it, faced my inner demons. Like being at alcoholics anonymous, I’ve stood up and admitted to the world that I do have an addiction to doing random acts. Not just any random acts mind, random acts of a retail nature. This impulsiveness is [...]
Back in 2010 I mentioned the art landscape Susa Bubble which I found memorable and intriguing. Well, today, I visited another landscape by the same artist, Rose Borchovski. It’s a surreal exhibit called The Inevitability of Fate set in an environment that could have been taken from one of my freakiest dreams. It’s really hard [...]
Linus Radford, aka Randal Prater, was one of my first friends in Second Life (and the only person I knew in first life before second life). Yesterday he invited me to hear him play, and though I don’t usually go to concerts in SL anymore I was pleased to see Linus back at it — [...]
Most of the people I hang out with in SL are easy going individuals who just want to socialise, hear a few good tunes and have a laugh. I think once you’ve been a Second Life resident for a few years you tend to recognise the drama llamas, griefers and trolls early on and do [...]
Tonight at Soul Mods the topic turned to politics. While I myself am not keen on political discussions in a club setting (which is supposed to be fun) this was nothing too serious. Most of it was banter, somewhat light hearted and everyone was having a good time — or so I thought. After some [...]
