On The Web
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 [...]
There’s a new application on Facebook called Bitstrips where you can make “instant comics starring you and your friends.” I first saw it on Divine’s page and she found it from Simon’s page — and I’m not sure where he found it from. It’s entertaining. You create your own avatar for it and can add [...]
At Moonletters we don’t mess around, so when I decided to hire a company to promote this site I knew only the best would do. I’m so proud of this. Thought I’d share this video of Moonletters being promoted. (We’re going to be HUGE!)
Found this youtube video. This is funny for all the wrong reasons!
When people get older they occasionally get set in their ways, right? Well, in Second Life terms I’m like a senior citizen now, so I’ve grown accustomed to having things a particular way — especially what SL viewer to use. When Lindens came out with Viewer 2 I hated it, and I’ve been holding onto [...]
Grumpy Cat is an internet sensation right now. Not a day goes by that my Facebook wall is not filled with memes featuring this fed up feline. Photos show the kitty saying something negative about most everything. Today, though, the cat seems to be seeking a job. How did Grumpy Cat get so grumpy? I’m [...]
Hi gang. Someone has posted all the episodes of The Mighty Boosh on youtube. If you’ve never seen this show it’s British and full of total nonsense — I love it. (That “Nooooooooooooooooooooo” gesture you may have heard a few of us do in SL was taken from this series.) So if you’re up for [...]
Shhhh! You ain’t seen me right? It’s 3.30am and I’ve circumnavigated Shauna’s security systems and broken into Moonletters HQ using a sponge and a rusty spanner. And here I sit at my old desk hammering away at my dusty old typewriter (Shauna always refused to buy me one of those new fangled word processors. “Typewriters [...]
I discovered in my Facebook mail section that, in addition to the messages in my inbox, there’s this thing called “other.” I never noticed it until now, and when I clicked on it I found loads of messages I’ve missed. Some went back three years, so if you’ve tried to contact me and I didn’t [...]
I just created a Facebook group called Mod Subculture. I searched first and there didn’t seem to be anything like it in existing groups, so I thought it would be cool to make one. At the moment I’m trying to figure out the mechanics of being the admin of a Facebook group, so bear with [...]
I got an email today with the title “Mesh Patch Lawsuit Center.” Before opening the mail I just assumed it had something to do with Second Life. I mean, some of that SL mesh is so annoying I’m ready to bring a lawsuit! But alas, this was not what they had in mind.
A cool blog I link to is SpaceCase Munster’s site which is dedicated to interesting free stuff. I just realized SpaceCase also has a group inworld where people can send announcements. A group for sharing freebies, fun, and cool stuff in SL. This group is a spinoff of the blog: http://www.virtualvagabond.com Please share: * Free [...]
Go to google and type in zerg rush. Let me know what you think.
A few of us from Second Life play NationStates on the side. How it works: You are the ruler of your own country. Each day you are presented with a question (or two) about a political issue, and your answer determines how your country turns out. Things can changes daily, usually with extreme or hilarious [...]
This video only has a loose connection to Second Life, but those in the know will understand.
For those interested in the SL9B celebrations you can find information at the SL9B Community Event Blog. The Performance Schedule page will tell you what’s going on and where.
Before Second Life, I used to amuse myself on the internet with stuff like this. See it on the Web: The Jim Morrison Simulatron
My friend Serendipidy Haven is hosting a community writing thing for the SL9B celebrations. She has it all planned out, and you can get the details on her blog here: All Is Revealed.
My friend Josie gave me a link to this. The site is called WTF Are You Wearing in SL, and it spotlights the worst fashion and avatars you’ll find in Second Life. It’s incredibly funny unless you happen to be the one in the picture being laughed it, but even then it’s probably still funny. [...]
As long as I can remember there’s been guys selling swampland in Florida. Now? Florida is passé. Selling land on the moon is where it’s at. Google seems like Big Brother lately. They know the topics I write about and search for, and have recently discovered I’m a fan of the moon. I can’t surf [...]
If you’re visiting Moonletters and wondering what the heck is going on, no need to worry. We’re experimenting with the look of the site a bit, but all of the usual content should still be accessible.
I’m lagging in reporting this, but there are new Phoenix and Firestorm viewer releases (if you didn’t already know). This really sparked my interest. Firestorm FUI Beta 18.104.22.168000 Firestorm FUI Beta has a completely new interface which is a hundred times more flexible than previous versions. We’ve even included an incredible V1/Phoenix skin which hasn’t [...]
BY SHAUNA SKYE I used to play a game called NationStates a few years ago. It came to mind again recently, so I thought I’d go to the site and start a new game. NationStates allows you to create your own country, and you can run it how you like. Do you prefer a democracy, [...]
My hillbilly cousin Karma Avedon has started a blog. She’s not really my cousin, but I thought it would be cool if she were. She’s not really a hillbilly either, but is from the southern USA. Ok, well, maybe she is a bit of a hillbilly. She’d probably describe herself more as a “hippie rave [...]
BY SHAUNA SKYE Yes, I have often complained about Facebook, even thinking of it as “Crapbook” on occasion. However, even I have to admit it has its good points. What I don’t like: If you have friends or family that you’re obligated to have on your Facebook list, and these people are drama queens, there’s [...]
BY EDITOR SHAUNA SKYE At last, the mesh enabled version of Phoenix viewer is available. This is due to the efforts of Henri Beauchamp of the Cool VL Viewer. Thank you Henri! I, for one, appreciate the work you’ve put in. While Phoenix having mesh is good news, on the down side this may be the [...]
BY EDITOR SHAUNA SKYE Thought I’d give a plug to a blog who recently did my store Subculture a nice turn by mentioning it. No, they don’t expect this, and have no idea I’d be plugging them. Apart from the nice feature they gave me, I genuinely liked their blog even though it falls into [...]
BY EDITOR SHAUNA SKYE Paypabak Writer has been writing for Moonletters about three years now. Like clockwork she contributes articles, sometimes once a week, sometimes twice a week, depending on what’s needed from her. She’s always been excellent to work with, has a great attitude, and even puts up with me as editor! I’m happy to announce that Pay has started [...]
BY ASSISTANT EDITOR PAYPABAK WRITER Last month, I issued an SL bloggers challenge to commemorate Banned Books Week in SL, by writing about a favorite book that had been challenged at libraries in efforts to prevent others from reading it. Yes, it happens, and you would be so surprised at what books do get challenged. [...]
