Baby Got Book

I try not to post “in” jokes on Moonletters, but in this case my friends may be the only ones who understand why I find this video so funny. Note: I am actually a bible school graduate, so when this video came out it had me in stitches.

Dragon Age Inquisition

Lately, I’ve been engrossed in Dragon Age Inquisition which is the third installment of the Dragon Age series. Like Second Life you can find places to explore within this fantasy world of pixels. There’s beautiful landscapes as you go on quests to save the world from demons, bad guys, fantasy creatures and other various monsters emerging from a tear in the fabric of our realm (they call it a “rift”). Locations

Lost in Counting

Two Fish is an art sim with some head tripping stuff by Saskia Boddeke. In 2010 she produced an installation called Susa Bubble that was both bizarre and intriguing. Here’s a video that shows part of the Susa Bubble story. It’s several years old now, but I saw it while surfing youtube for Second Life stuff. Blast from the past!

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

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.

Man Vs Second Life 2

Back in November I posted Man Vs Second Life, a hilarious blast from the past video created in 2008. Sean Krueger, the guy who made it, did a second video and uploaded that one in 2010. Man Vs Second Life 2 is also funny. I do find it amusing that “Adam Steele” goes on a hunt for SL noobs when he himself is still using default newbie avatar circa 2007 and no AO.

Need More Cowbell

Second Life is a multicultural experience, so sometimes things that make people laugh in one country only produce a raised eyebrow in another. It may surprise some Americans to hear this but the show Saturday Night Live is usually only viewed in the USA, so if Blue Oyster Cult’s song Don’t Fear The Reaper comes on and someone shouts “Needs more cowbell!” it’s likely only Americans will laugh. There are exceptions, but in general

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

Being on Second Life With a Bad Computer

Have you ever tried to access Second Life using a bad computer or inferior internet connection? If so, you may have experienced: 1. Being frozen, then when you can move a barrage of text floods your screen. 2. You can’t respond to the person talking to you at the worst possible moment! 3. You’re unable to move then all of a sudden you’re on the other side of the room. 4. You

Bionic Dugi 1

Bionic Dugi is the first in a series of hilarious videos by my friend Slate McLeod. Slate has made a lot of Second Life videos and usually makes Dugi Rubble the star. This one started it off! Note: In case you’re wondering, the real Dugi did not crash. Slate used a stunt Rubble.

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

Reality in a Different Form

I stumbled upon Creations for Parkinson’s while searching for art galleries. It led me to this video from the Drax Files which is a couple of years old, but if you haven’t seen it, it’s worth watching. Fran Seranade, 86 at the time of the video, said “My avatar represents how I truly feel inside.” That’s what I’ve been saying all along! Barbie Alchemi, Fran’s daughter who made Creations For

The Mighty Boosh

In my early years of Second Life I, along with my closest friend, had a bit of an obsession with the comedy tv series The Mighty Boosh. We loved this show starring Julian Barratt and Noel Fielding, and due to its surreal nature it fit in quite well with our Second Life. On occasion we brought a bit of the Boosh into the virtual world. Are you familiar with the

Man vs Second Life

This video was uploaded to youtube in 2008. It’s not only hilarious but historically fascinating. Those new to Second Life can get a glimpse of what things used to look like back in the old days. And yes, people used to act like this – sort of!
