Tom Jones at The Killing Moon

Tom Jones aka Simon Seurat will be DJing at our local pub The Killing Moon tomorrow at 10pm-12:00 PM UK time (2-4 Second Life time). We don’t usually have “official” events at our pub, but spend our evenings there anyway listening to music, chilling out, and having conversation… Our “house DJ” Barbie Bohemian often spins tunes to save us from the radio, but it’s all  unofficial.  The Killing Moon’s slogan for

Bull Riding Contest at Penny Lane

  Put on your denim, boots, and bring a cowboy hat too. It’s the Bull Riding Contest at Penny Lane. YEE HAW! Oh, all right. That cowboy stuff is not really needed. This is Second Life we’re talking about. Bull riding can be done in a dress and heels! WHERE: The Bull Riding Contest at Penny Lane HOW IT WORKS: 100 lindens will be given to the highest score when I log in on

Selfies

A few years ago I needed a photo of myself for a music page, and at the time I thought it was inconvenient to have someone else take it. I preferred to do it myself because I didn’t want some photographer telling me to turn this way and that or smile pretty, etc. Getting a picture taken is stressful enough for me (no I wouldn’t make a good model, even if I were Elizabeth

Let Them Eat Cake

Last night I went to listen to Simon Seurat DJ at The Hangout, a club owned by Janis Short. Janis is a fab DJ herself and knows loads about music. It also happened to be her birthday! Simon played some 1960’s tunes for us, and all seemed rather normal apart from it being Janis’ birthday. A cake sat in front of her, and when I entered, my friend Slate McLeod

Church of Penny Lane

Hi everyone. Today marks the beginning of the Easter Weekend or “Resurrection Sunday” as some call it. Since many Christians celebrate during this time, I thought I’d draw your attention to the little Church of Penny Lane. It’s not a very big building and there are certainly fancier looking places in Second Life; however, this little church is more special than many realize. Two main reasons I put a church at Penny

Noobs

Noobs. We’ve all been one, and yet we can have very different outlooks on them. I have some friends who go out of their way to help new people, deliberately seeking them out to mentor. I know others who would rather submit to Chinese torture than deal with one. I try to be nice to everyone, be it an older resident or a newbie on their first day. If it’s within my power

Poseballs

When I joined Second Life years ago I noticed there were these little balls everywhere I went, and if I right clicked and sat on one I would dance, sit, or become involved in some kind of movement/animation. The little balls looked weird at first, but I soon grew accustomed to seeing them, so much so that I ceased to notice them after a while. We do not see poseballs too

Connecting With Others

“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” -C.S. Lewis If a new person drops in on my friends and I while we’re at The Killing Moon pub, I can usually tell if they will stay based on what they look like and what their profile says. In general, people with extremely different taste in music tend to leave soon,

Mynerva – For Light and Youthful Skin

I would like to say thank you to Rhapzody Wilde and Zarothan Wylder of the skin store Mynerva for going out of their way to be helpful and make one of their older skins available again. Mynerva recently updated their store so that their skin would be compatible with both regular and mesh avatars, and in doing so they discontinued some of their previous skin. One of those older skins happened to be the one

Free Signboard to Promote Your Place

Hey, check it out. I found a free signboard you can rez that lets you exchange promotion with other places in Second Life. All you do is drag a texture and a landmark into the signboard, display it, and that’s it! The signboard shows random participating places that when clicked bring up the map to that location. So, this is not just good for promoting your own place, but is nice for

The Odd Week

It’s been an unusual week in Second Life. There’s been both happiness and sadness in it, but one thing that’s become more apparent to me is that I truly care about my friends. Though I have known many for years, I have gotten closer to some more this last year than in several other years combined. I feel blessed to know such wonderful people, both old friends and the newer

How to Get Texture Info

This video tutorial from Torley Linden was made in 2007. Though it’s dated, it’s still helpful because explains how to get info on textures and why we should keep the size of them smaller. Note: If you’re on Firestorm go to the Developer drop down menu instead of the Client as Torley instructs.

How Some View The Virtual World

Those not part of Second Life often believe it’s a game, a place of make believe, or in some cases “a waste of time.” I can’t even count the times I’ve heard such comments. They usually come from people who have never tried it, have falsely pre-judged it, or logged in once, saw one sim and decided the entire virtual world was exactly the same. To me, that’s like seeing one webpage and thinking you know the

5 Unwritten Second Life Rules

Linden Lab has given us some official Second Life rules. These can be found in the Terms of Service and on the Second Life website. There are, however, some unwritten rules that can help us get along better with other SL residents. No, these aren’t engraved on a virtual stone, but they’re still good to know. When teleporting to a new sim, we should move from the landing spot. That place we arrive

Gacha in Second Life

Most Second Life residents have heard the word Gacha, but some are still not sure what it is. Since I’m a fan, I thought I’d explain things to the uninitiated. I admit it. I take pleasure in shopping Gacha markets. I like whimsical and quirky things, and Gacha has loads of that. For those who prefer more traditional items like hair, skin, and clothing, though, you can find that too. How Gacha came to be: In Japan people
