At Grendel’s Children I got an egg with a drakelet inside. The egg is large, and worn on your back. When you find the right spot the egg will let you know, and then you remain in that spot until it hatches. I met someone at Grendel’s who collected the different kind of drakelets, and [...]
Contributed by Shauna Skye In real life if you go camping you might sleep in a tent outdoors or claim a spot in line for tickets to your favorite band. In Second Life if you go camping it means you’ve decided to sit on a chair, bench, dance pad, etc. to earn lindens, the source [...]
Guest Blog Contributed by Art Brute The issue of the use of bots in Second Life is becoming more contentious as the user base expands and new users seek ways to gather lindens cheaply and quickly. What is a bot? A bot is an avatar that uses scripts or other means to complete repetitive tasks [...]
What is a bot on Second Life? The answer is not always cut and dry because opinions can vary, but generally a bot is an avatar created just for camping. If it is serious bot it uses a “resit” script to sit back down on a camping spot that kicks it off after a certain [...]
” George, tell me” ” What?” ” Like you’ve done before.” ” Like what?” ” About them- about the rabbits. Come on George, tell me like you’ve done before! Please-please-please.” —————— I went to TRINKETS and saw the bunnies for sale. Bunnies! Yay! Bunnies! Woo hoo! I’m going to get me some and tend to [...]
I was in Liverpool and came across an old lady with her head embedded into a counter. Nice! Of course I had to take a snapshot of it for you. Visit Inworld: Liverpool
My builder friend Lol555broek Beatty said she had something nice to show me. She took me to a beautiful outdoor area with colorful trees and grass, and there we came to a table in a wooded area. Lol555 requested I get on it. Ah, I thought. This is why she led me here. She’s been [...]
An alt is an avatar you use on Second Life other than your main avatar. Why use one? For privacy if your regular avatar is too popular (or unpopular), to explore another aspect of your personality, to camp, for a joke, for mischief, etc. An alt can be anything. You can use a fantasy creature [...]
Avatar Name: Shayla Juran Style of Music you usually play: I usually play Rock and Alternative music. I also enjoy doing special decade shows that I tie into a theme like all 80′s and teen movies of that decade or all 90′s and the population explosion of people trying to learn how to email and [...]
Does this look like a picture of me exploring Second Life? I’m not. I call this phenomenon “lost in space.” What am I doing? I had flown up to get a better look at a building, but instead of stopping to look at the building my avatar kept going, going, going until eventually my environment [...]
Does your female avatar need a better walk? Awesome Designs can help. They have a free “sexy walk” that replaces the normal dorky Second Life n00b walk when worn. Get it free!
Hairspray is a sim devoted entirely to hair and has stores representing several different designers. What’s cool is they have a freebie section with some decent choices. If you’re new to Second Life and do not have a lot of lindens, but would like to get rid of your n00b hair this is a good [...]
My friend Zues Merlin (aka “George” from the SL Beatles) played Nadima’s Magic Bean Coffee House and Culture Gallery today. The coffee house had a late 60s vibe, the people were friendly, and Zues put on a good show. I liked the artwork inside, and also need to get me a sign like they have [...]
I love the INTERNATIONAL HOUSE OF STYLE. Here you can find clothing inspired by India, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Southeast Asia. My taste in clothes leans toward Asian and Indian, and this Vietnam design was my favorite. It’s georgeous but a little pricey at 325 lindens and non transferable. Also, it is made [...]
CANIMAL has some really cool clothes. Some of it costs a pretty penny but for cheapskates like myself they have a discount section. You can find nice stuff in this discount area, and some of it’s as good as the higher priced items in the main part of the store. Yes, I found something for [...]
If you’re looking for a fresh girlish face HI-ROP has some nice looking skins. These go for 1500 lindens.
If you’ve been “Ruthed” in Second Life it means your avatar (due to a graphical error) has been changed into an ugly n00b default. This condition is often more traumatic for males as they undergo gender confusion, keeping beards but gaining a woman’s chest. For some reason Ruthed avatars often stand with arms sticking straight [...]
I went on a treasure hunt at a western themed shopping mall. Mushrooms were hidden all over the mall and each one had a prize inside. While hunting I found a nice little freebie store called FREE 4 U. There were several nice items there like an entertainment center and art, but the thing that [...]
The avatars are noticeably pretty at SWEETFACES, and this is probably because the creator did not make them all blonde and tan with Pamela Anderson makeup. There was even a vampire lady avatar. Points for that. I liked the Lolita skin and shape best based on the photo, so I invited one of my “alt” [...]
I like TWEET clothing because it’s not cookie cutter and borders on the unusual. The color combinations are not always what you expect. In the store pictures the Tweet models look to be in their early teens, but the clothing fits my curvy avatar well with slight modifications. Cost? What I saw ranged from 200-250L. [...]
The auction for Little Britain ran from 9:00-11:30am (11/9). It began slow but after two hours of bidding Dav DeSantis became the new owner of the Little Britain island and everything on it, buying it from Sally Soleil for the price of 400,000 lindens. The auction was led through voice by Auction Hammerer. On arriving [...]
Avatar Name: Linus Radford RL Perfoming Name: Loomis Lovejoy (kidding!) Style of Music: Mope Rawk Short Bio: Linus Radford writes songs that weave indie, shoegaze, psychedelic, mope rock, and singer/songwriter sensibilities all into one handsome carrying case and then tosses it in the nearest river to see where the stream will take it. Influences include [...]
If you have 4000 lindens to spare you can look like Audrey Hepburn. This skin and shape comes from Ebony & Ivory. It looks nice but for 4000L they should have included the hair, dress, and something from Tiffany’s.
At Shu’s Guitar Shop the guitars are just 480L and they come with a few animations you control via hud. There’s a demo guitar you can try to see if you like it before you buy.
There was so much to see at Max Mountain but the first time I went was just to climb. There are two mountains and one is larger, but on the smaller one you have a platform jutting out to begin a rock climbing adventure. There’s places for your hands and feet and these you choose [...]
