Congratulations to my friend, Liverpool artist Richard Morrison. His painting Lichtenstein Pastiche #17 was selected for the Williamson Art Gallery and Museum in Birkenhead, UK. Really cool to see that on the first life wall!
Happy to announce that the person who got high score for riding Zorro the Bull this week is Barbie Bohemian. Yay! Woo hoo! Congratulations Barbie. You will receive your prize tonight at Soul Mods 1:pm SLT. Visit Inworld: Zorro the Bull
We can look however we like in Second Life, from being an idealized version of ourselves to another gender, race or species. We can change our appearance whenever we like, and I love this about SL. It’s cool that people can look on the outside how they feel on the inside. I tried to make [...]
If you like Victorian, rustic, or western furniture and decor, check out Bargain Basement at Tombstone. They have great looking stuff in there, and everything is under 50 lindens. I bought a load of things, from a realistic looking elf statue to a 1 prim chair that looks fab. Visit Inworld: Bargain Basement
Are you tired of SL photo contests where people vote for friends no matter how bad the image looks? These contests are more about who can get the most people (and alts!) to go vote rather than being about the photos themselves. I would like to hold a photo contest in mid July that does [...]
Ok, this experiment was not exactly scientific since I tried it for less than a day and the goal was to satisfy personal curiosity. However, I saw all I needed to see rather quickly. For a laugh I got hold of a traffic making device just to see what would happen. How it works is [...]
This video only has a loose connection to Second Life, but those in the know will understand.
Ugly plants and trees. You see them at even at the nicest of sims, and put out by people who normally have excellent taste in decor. It’s not that the species of plants are ugly, it’s that the things just do not look like plants at all. Ok, they do look pretty if you view [...]
“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art…. It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.” –C.S. Lewis
I was recently talking about how vampire fiction is not what it used to be. Some of the fun has been taken out of the stories, because the idea that vampires should be frightening has been lost on many modern writers. Rather than scaring the pants off us, these days vampires are often broody, have [...]
I will be DJing at Soul Mods at 1pm SLT (9pm UK time) playing The Who, The Kinks, Small Faces, ska, motown, soul, and this and that. Come join in for some nonsense and the usual banter. Visit Inworld: Soul Mods
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.
To the men who have children, happy father’s day. Going to use this post today to honour my father. Here goes… Ok, first off, my Dad was not a perfect man. He was, however, the best father in the world in my book. I learned more from him on many subjects than I did in [...]
The weekly bull riding contest is back to its usual frenzy. Last week’s winner Dugi Rubble has a “sore arse” due to riding it so much, and DJ Slate McLeod returned from his Vegas holiday to hop right back on. We women have been giving it a go too, especially Barbie Bohemian, Aston Mindes, and [...]
Photo by Karma Avedon One of my best buddies, Karma Avedon, is the proud co-owner of Avedon Park along with Aura Firehawk, another sweet lady who graciously gave me a tour. These two have made the place look lovely and have opened it to the public. At the moment not many people are using Avedon [...]
If you own land in Second Life, you have the option to share audio with your visitors. This is one of the privileges of having a place, and the main reason I set out on my own in SL. But how does one find good radio? Where do I find my stations from? I am [...]
Noticing a lot of vampires lately. One female vamp sat on a bench at Nowhere Land for a couple of days, while others have been roaming Penny Lane and eyeing up the people who are afk. I was even propositioned by one! What do I think of vampires? I’ve seen them evolve over the years. [...]
Ok, you will rarely see me write about skin unless I’m poking fun at some guy who still looks noobie circa 2007, but I’m going to make an exception today. First off, while I try to get the best skin I possibly can, I’m also not a fan of changing it regularly. I’ve probably changed [...]
A club owner friend said she’d gotten into an argument with a new DJ who tried to instruct her on how to run her place. Most of the advice centered on more ways to advertise, more ways to get tips, and basically make the place focussed on making money. My friend will put up with [...]
Just some quick Penny Lane gossip. We’ve had lots of new faces around the sim, and some individuals like to stay all day and night. I restart the sim regularly, and yet they still return. Hey, not complaining! They’re doing no one any harm, and their presence makes for interesting conversation. (No they’re not bots, [...]
Before Second Life, I used to amuse myself on the internet with stuff like this. See it on the Web: The Jim Morrison Simulatron
Saw two little girls shopping in Subculture today. One had a mix and match of more than one of my outfits to make her own look, right down to the coat and maryjanes. I thought they both looked adorable so asked if I could take their picture. Note: Their names are Laci LuikOk and Loto [...]
I was surprised to see a woman having a rant on Facebook about how someone “cammed” her in Second Life. She was not in her private home in the sky when it happened, but was on the ground at a sim she was visiting; and the woman who cammed her was someone who worked at [...]
My friend Betty gave me a goose yesterday, a species which apparently likes Betty’s home town of Liverpool, England, since she’s seen a lot of them lately. Betty knows I love animals and thought I could use one at Moonletters town. It’s an awesome present. (Thank you. I’ve named him Richard!) The goose looks cool, [...]
As you read this it is my birthday, but I’m writing this post the evening before. First off I would like to say thanks to the gang at Soul Mods for throwing a birthday party for me on Friday. Dugi, Aston, and all the friends who came or wished me happy birthday, it was very [...]
Before I started Subculture Clothing store there were only three or four stores I would shop at in Second Life. One was Izumiya, a little shop located on a quiet Japanese sim. It would have been my favourite of all time due to being unique and stylishly modest, not to mention prices so low even [...]
Obsessive bull riders were surprised when Jellie Arrowmint, who had not even been interested in riding the bull and only got on because she was encouraged to “just try it,” snagged the top spot on her very first ride. How did this happen? It could be beginners luck, or it could be that Jellie is [...]
