Please Stand By…

I have been editing real life stuff up at the moment, so am taking a temporary break from posting  on Moonletters. It may be a week or more before I’m back. I’m alive and well. I’ll still see you in Second Life each evening. I’m just concentrating on a particular thing, so need to give Moonletters a short holiday.

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

A Good Reason to Friend Us On Facebook

From now on, I’ll be announcing the winner of the Bull Riding contest on Facebook and Twitter only unless we have an official sponsor for the event. If you haven’t already, you can friend me on Facebook or Follow me on Twitter. New Moonletters articles are announced there, and I occasionally  post other things, such as new outfits from Subculture, spur of the moment musings, or a silly meme.

Is There Something I Should Know

I think in music. Every situation I get into, every place I visit, every word I read, and everything I see has music behind it. A melody seems to weave its way into every encounter. I’ve gotten dream interpretations in the form of music, and even written funny songs about my cat. For me, life has a soundtrack. When I woke up this morning, this was the song in my head: “I made a

Serendipidy Haven Builds Wigan Casino

Many of you know Seren for her own blog and also for being a Moonletters guest writer. Thought I’d give her a mention for something other than her writing today! Just about every year I’ve known Seren, she has started on some kind of building project, be it for Second Life’s official anniversary event or just her own enjoyment. Recently, she decided to recreate an English building from the distant past. a building

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

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

Planet Earth is Blue: R.I.P. David Bowie

I had something else to post today, but how can I when David Bowie has just died? We’ve just lost one of the greatest rock stars of all time. How can we possibly think of anything else today? David Bowie was one of my all-time favourites. I’ve always been in awe of him and his exceptional songwriting. So original! He was the whole package with his music, flamboyant outfits, and striking beauty. I had just been

Happy New Year Friends!

I posted this in a private Facebook group but thought I’d share it here too for those who are great friends but don’t do Facebook. Just want to say this has been an especially nice year… and it’s all due to having you as friends. You’re a kind hearted, warm, genuine group of people. It’s fun to laugh with you, listen to great music, and just be able to chill

Nazis Attack Penny Lane

“Second Life Nazis. I hate Second Life nazis!” – Jake Blues The Penny Lane sim was visited by griefers today. They filled the place with Hitler photos, swastikas, porn and violence. Fortunately, I was online at the time, so when my friend Viv told me she thought Penny Lane had some kind of virus, I was able to take care of it. Almost everyone is welcome at Penny Lane. Nazi griefers, not so much. It’s

About That Christmas Surprise…

“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!” — Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas The other day I mentioned I had a surprise. I was all ready to announce it, but then I heard some of my friends say stuff like: “Christmas is better closer to Christmas!” “Bah, humbug!” “I’ll

Happy Thanksgiving 2015

Today the people in the USA celebrate Thanksgiving, when families come together, some traveling great distances just to sit down to a meal together. I am thankful everyday, not just on a holiday, but today is a good excuse to voice it! Here are some things I’m grateful for in Second Life: The Penny Lane sim: I’ve been the manger of Penny Lane since it was born in 2010. I’ve seen it go

The Polka Dot Avatar of Doom

Updated my Firestorm viewer tonight. Since I looked like an orange cloud for ages, I decided to turn myself into the default polka dot wearing “girl next door” avatar to make something load on the screen.  So far so good but then to my dismay, I realized my regular skin and eyes were totally missing from the inventory. SL likes to eat my items for some reason, so this did not

Moonletters Is Back

Whether Moonletters is back from the dead or from a long hiatus is debatable, but here we are. The old website with content from 2007 – 2013 is pretty much lost in the ether, but my friend Seren showed me a way to resurrect some of those old articles. I may bring a few of them back if they’re still relevant. Why did I put Moonletters on hiatus after so many years of publishing? In all honesty
