For Sale: Land on the Moon

For Sale: Land on the Moon

As long as I can remember there’s been guys selling swampland in Florida. Now? Florida is pass√©. 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 […]

Some news. I was pleased to hear that a Subculture outfit has been featured on the front page of the Marketplace. Fashion blogger and photographer Harper Beresford is wearing one of my newer outfits as an example of “madstyle.” For those interested, the name of the outfit is “B&W Mod Skirt.” Thanks to Harper for […]

Do You Use SL Search?

I have a few different ways to discover new places in Second Life. One is to check the picks of an interesting person. Another is to find out who created an object I like, and then see if they have a store inworld. The main way I find places, however, is by searching the “places” […]

Inventing a New Language

Inventing a New Language

Since Abhi, aka Shane Wildmist, is like a little brother to me, I often get on his case for using too much slang, saying “lemme” instead of “let me” and making use of acronyms I don’t understand. He usually types like he’s on a cell phone! But something interesting happened today. Shauna Vella: rhR AHW […]

Being a Woman in Second Life

I’ve been thinking about gender roles in Second Life lately, and realized that the recipe to get a “Shauna” is to take one extremely old fashioned girl and mix her with one assertive feminist.
