Contributed by Shauna Skye Ah, Liverpool in Second Life. A sim that draws creative types from all over the world; musicians, tourists, real life residents as well as those curious to travel to Liverpool but never have. At Liverpool you can find the Cavern Club where the Beatles used to play. Yes, the Cavern Club [...]
I’ve been working on a clothing store, making some unique stuff behind the scenes. The store will be called Subculture, and is not yet open, but you can join our group to learn news and be first in line for free stuff. (Search “Subculture X” under groups inworld.) We have a building for Subculture but [...]
Andalusite Store has a snowman you can wear on your shoulder. Not only is he cute but he brings snow, so wherever you walk you’re snowed upon. I love the way Japanese store owners translate their notecards into English. This time thank you for demanding it. I am happy when I have you like this [...]
Santa showed up at my club. I thought he came to give presents, but instead of a large bag filled with toys addressed to Shauna, he was raising this sign up and down like some save-the-whales hippie. No sled. No reindeer. No presents. Someone needs to fire Second Life Santa.
Lily Lightcloud has created a beautiful ice skating rink at Canterbury Island. Not only is the whole island lovely but here your avatar will skate like a professional with spins and turns. A free pair of skates and socks are provided for your convenience. “I built the ice rink because I wanted a wonderful romantic [...]
I was searching for a dreamland and came across Nirvana’s Neverland, a whimsical sim with giant mushrooms. The sign invites you to “pick” the mushrooms (i.e. buy them). The mushrooms are nice, and I liked walking the trail to see them. Some had poseballs you could “chill” on while on another you could play a [...]
Chakryn Forest and Treehouse is a sim of rare beauty. If you’re looking for a quiet place with a lovely forest and dreamy scenery, give this one a visit. Click the thumbnail to see a large picture of me posing in front of the treehouse.
Contribued by Shauna Skye Ok, I admit it. I dig Star Trek, and the Star Trek Museum of Science in Second Life is a must see for anyone who is fan. I didn’t realize how much the museum had when I first arrived, but the more I explored it the cooler it got. The first [...]
I’ve noticed a new trend in camping. Torture devices the campers must submit to in order to earn a few lindens. At one place I was buried under a huge piece of metal my arms and legs flailing. Another I was under the tire of a car. Fun! In this picture I’m lying in a [...]
Only in Second Life do I find myself intrigued by a garbage can; so intrigued that I just keep digging in it. Somebody stop me! Ok, digging is not the right word. “Harvesting” is what you call it. If you right click the dumpster you have the option to “harvest.” Yay! So what is a [...]
I visited Heron Park for the first time today to see my friend Linus Radford perform. Tola Heron (the owner) was there and I got this show schedule from her picks: LINUS RADFORD: plays here Saturdays at 7pm slt. Indie Musician, Singer/Songwriter, Solo Performer, great music and great fun! FRIENDLY FIRE: Wednesday, Dec. [...]
Most of us have had this happen. A friend gives a landmark to a great location on Second Life. Perhaps it leads to an item we want to purchase, or entertainment we’re looking forward to. We click “teleport” and arrive . . . only to find the place we’re looking for is nowhere in sight. [...]
I got something for the men from Voer. I call this “crouching dragon hidden storm” hair. Ok, so let’s not call it that. Don’t call it anything. Just put on your ninja gear and get this hair and wear it. I bought this hair for one of my male alts. He looked more like David [...]
Here is a guitar you can get at Platinum Resort shopping mall by dancing around on a pad for 120 minutes. I’m kind of new to item camping, being more used to sitting on benches for lindens; however if the item being given away is a guitar, I’m there dude. I had my cyberpunk teenage [...]
Got a group IM from SLiterary saying they were having “wide Open Discussions: cannabis legalization.” This followed that announcement: [20:17] Katarina Malthus: I’d come, but I’m too busy getting stoned, and that’s a long tp [20:17] Lorac Cleanslate: lmao [20:18] Lorac Cleanslate: now thats funny dont care who you are [20:18] Katarina Malthus: Wait… will [...]
I went to all this trouble to get Christmas presents for you. You just need to go to Japan to get them!
Tired of the way your bed looks? With the click of a mouse you can change it. At Primwise you can choose from a number of beds that have changing spreads. Use the ones loaded into the bed or add your own textures to really customize it. Lily Lightcloud, a nice lady I know who [...]
My friend Lol555broek Beatty told me about a 2L Full Perm Superstore where full permissions items are selling for just 2 lindens. That means if you buy the item you can copy it, modify it, transfer it, blow it up, sell it; anything you like. Most of the items in this store I have already [...]
Contributed by Bettyboolean Dagger If you want something a little different style-wise this season why not consider the vintage/retro look? We all like a little glamour now and then, and in Second Life as in real life there is glamour to be found in abundance with many stores catering to almost any period you could [...]
I am Ruth!!! While Second Life was on some unscheduled downtime, I was researching another article and came across OSGrid. The OS stands for Open Source and is a grid based on the open source Second Life grid. (Open Source code means the servers for this grid are available in code form for anyone to [...]
I’ve dealt with camping bots before, but yesterday I met a different kind of automaton: a landbot. I was on the ground of some property I own trying to improve the landscape. I had this idea of creating the SLFix.com Headquarters or something grand, then happened to look around at the neighbors’ floating for sale [...]
When you chat in Second Life do your fingers just peck away at some invisible keyboard? How boring! You need to type in style. Matrix style, that is. Instead of being just like everyone else why not stop bullets with your hand? Are you the one? Do you need me to send you the red [...]
My avatar almost always wears boots. I am picky about the kind I wear though. I got these half boots at Andalusite. They are very nice and only 30 lindens.

At Azure I found skin and shapes for 150 lindens. These are for younger avatars but can look nice on older ones too.
Nonko is giving away a free Kimono for Christmas. Similar clothing here runs around 400 lindens. If you like Japanese stuff this is pretty cool, so grab it while it lasts!
DJ Shayla Juran’s got two turntables and a microphone. (“Where it’s at!”) At Dear Prudence Rock Club Shayla got a n00b too. First he sat on her turntable, then danced on top of it. I said “I’m taking a picture of this for my gossip column,” and he fled. :)
Ever wish you could fight like a Ninja? I usually can in my dreams. In Second Life you can dress like a Ninja. Barerose has a 10 Linden Store with Ninja garb. Yes this is meant for guys but if I can steal clothes from you men I will. I tried this on. I’m ready [...]
In real life if I go to the store and buy a dress that doesn’t fit me I have the option to return it (if the store allows) or to give the outfit to a friend. In Second Life we are supposed to have more freedom than in real life. We can fly, we can [...]
I like taking photos in real life, but lately I find it more fun to take them in Second Life. Why? I don’t have to buy batteries for my digital camera, and its as easy as clicking “snapshot.” I like all that can go with taking snapshots. A photo studio for instance. I bought an [...]
