Imploding Wombats From Fnordian Link

Last night, creator Fnordian Link of Fnordian Magic & Gadgets dropped by The Killing Moon Pub to teach us how to play Imploding Wombats. This is a card game Fnord gave me to review and test, so I put it in the pub across from the Greedy table. I’ve been a fan of Fnord’s creations since 2007. He makes whimsical things like talking mirrors, robots that recite poetry, and entertaining business tools, such

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

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

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

Light Your Face, Not The Room

How old is your facelight? Has anyone ever talked about how bright you are, and they’re not talking about your intelligence? Have you heard rumours that rooms become darker when you leave them? If so, you may want to ditch your facelight. For various reasons, some people won’t wear facelights at all; but for those of us who still want a little something, there’s actually a compromise between lighting an entire room and

Mesh Flowers and Mesh Plants

I love flowers, so thought I’d tell you about a place I often visit inworld. It’s called Mesh Flowers and Mesh Plants, and it has more blooming things than you can shake a stick it. The store was created by LovedWarrior Quan who keeps it well stocked with plants. First off, let me tell you my criteria for a good flower or plant in Second Life – and yes, I’m picky! The flowers

Sgt Pepper Outfits

Last night one of the original SL Beatles came to Penny Lane to hang out with us. He used to be “George” in the SL Beatles circa 2007, but had not logged into Second Life since 2012. “John” of the SL Beatles aka Timothy Falta was there too so naturally this reunion resulted in the guys putting on their Sgt Pepper outfits for old times’ sake. I didn’t get a picture of

Free Rockers TV

Did you know that Penny Lane has a ghetto section? It does! It’s in the corner of the sim where you’ll find no charming town, no lovely field or marmalade skies anywhere. Instead, there’s grungy furniture and items you’d usually only get from a seedier neighborhood. I’ve even seen a cannabis plant there, though I’m sure that’s only for medicinal purposes. The woman who runs the ghetto at Penny Lane,

Become a Tree

My friend Timothy Falta changed into a tree last night. One minute he was human, the next he was tall, made out of wood, and waving branches around. If you, or anyone you know, would like to be a tree you now can. The avatar is by Meshers and is free on the SL Marketplace. I think it wood be good to get it before the price changes. Don’t leaf

Getting Excited About Christmas

I admit it. I’ve been thinking about Christmas since October. The reasons why are probably a bit complicated, but the main one is this: I love colourful, sparkly, whimsical things and go giddy for shiny lights. I spent my younger years in Chicago, and it was tradition for my family to put up a Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving. I suppose Chicagoans do Christmas pretty well since winter is
