A Month In SecondLife

I decided to take the month of July off from performing.

(The way guys in SL go through women I think one of them should write a book called, "A Month With Betty." --see "A Month in Provence". It's a book not a sim. Are there still books? Who are those Amazon people anyhow?)

A month off (well 3 weeks so far) and I have gone shopping...and shopping...and shopping and dancing...listening to various singers and shopping..BUT...BUT...What has been the most fun?

One is being a member of NPIRL and reading the blog (just google NPIRL). This month I was thrilled to visit the new installation by Bryn Oh. If you haven't gone.....you really should...(you can find info, lm etc on that blog.)

But the other day I went to visit the new Sin Continent. Yes Mommy, they still have sex in SL but they are moving it to a new fresh continent so the rest of us don't have to get STD (SecondLife Temerity Disease).

I decided to travel by motorcycle. SinWorld is over 200 sims with roads and 'amuse bouche'. A pun of course but you could Google "amuse bush' if you need to.

Governor Linden is the largest Sin sim owner but i found a tiny spot in one sim toward SouthWest corner) where I could rez something...my famous motorcycle. And it was there I convinced Bryn Oh to join me on our exploration.

Sin and the Single girls.,..In order to get to the first road I had to engage flight controls on my cycle and carefully maneuver around the red barrier and a no sim area. (why are there 'red barriers' in adult land?) But get there I did (because if you crash you must start from the same place). I could drive over fields and on roads...all over the continent. With Bryn as my navigator we traveled from the eastern most shores to the west coast. We rode the streeets of the northern cities and sped over the vast plains of prairie grass sims we came across without crashing.

Sims to the left of us, Sims to the right of us. Rode SecondLife's Thelma and Louise.. Sometimes we had to turn to a different heading but in the end we traveled over a 100 sims (maybe 150 or more) without a crash. (Well, we crashed once at the beginning but not after that). Clothing stores crammed with sexy little prim outfits from early 2005 were sprouting up everywhere. Cages, collar and pose balls from yesteryear yearned to be tried.

But the new item that caught my attention (which may well be 'not so new') was the Lotus Pussy 2.0, a real revolutionary pussy. It still had all the good things from 1.0 like peeing, climaxing, creampies. But there was a new HUD where you can attempt to color match your new pussy to your skin. I was sure this item was in need of a proper girl's consumer report so I bought it. (review to come later)

Back to the thrill......on we traveled Lauren & Bryn. Here's an interesting question regarding my travels...after 100 plus sims....I couldn't move so I logged off and logged back on. My motorcycle was still there and I sat on it and it worked. I didn't have to rez a new cycle (therefore I don't consider the circumstance a crash.) Bryn also relogged at one point due to an 'out of world' experience. And so our journey proved something had changed in SL. The "Kessel Run" had been well surpassed (which means some type of scripting had changed Punky Puglist told me) If you are unfamiliar with the "Kessel Run" I suggest you google it as SL. It was taken from Star Wars and applied to an epic event in SL that only Arcadia ever completed (i believe).

Oh, about the new Lotus 2.0 pussy....do you really want to know? Should I write a review from an unwed mother of secondlife's POV?

Profiles and other Dark Thoughts!

What is the thought process behind some of the profiles people dream up?

How many times I'll see a profile that says (paraphrasing)

"I am a very nice person please do not contact me or I'll cut your pose balls off."
"I am so happy with my SL partner Prickly Rose." and in the partner box is a different name.
"I am a real person so please............" (are there robo handlers?)
"I don't take IM's so drop me a notecard" (I'd rather drop you from a high building)

Or the Picks page

One woman had 5 different picks. Each was a different male avie who was her 'soul mate'.
One Guy had three picks and they were all the same pick......BLANK!
Others fill in everything about themselves elsewhere and have no pix.

How about those who say their firstlife is very private and then have a link to their firstlife myspace page?

Do we still need the page that has boxes to check.

How about the firstlife page comments.

1. I made you look. (yeah and now I never want to know you)
2. taken in firstlife and secondlife (I wonder, Do people ask for marriage immediately in SL?

There is so much nonsense here to mine and I am doing that. LaurenLive 3rd Season (which will open late August or early September) will bring new meaning to SL Profiles.

Profiles I'd like to see.--- "
My firstlife name is Dexter. I am a serial killer. I am in SecondLife trying to recover. Please send me your firstlife address and phone number."

Trouble in Wonderland

This is just a simple link to a story effecting all of us in SL. Most important, this should be thoroughly reviewed by Linden Labs and a transparent speedy result should ensue.

http://tleinsl.blogspot.com/2009/07/tle-educational-network-current-status.html


BTW, last night's open mic was one of the best on record. Since we have combined open mic with a show after "JWheels Presents" our audience has increased to well over 40 people (in the middle of the summer WOW). A few of the most important avies in show biz, Linden Labs, builders, creators and lunatics showed up.

As you all know LaurenLive Second Season ended last week and the third season is scheduled to open in late August. I will also be starring in Cinderella as the step-mother in September. During July Hypatia (a play by Skylar Smythe) will debut. You can pick up an lm and notecard at Lauren's Place in cookie sim (on back wall by dance floor). Or, contact Skylar Smythe for a schedule.

During my shows I try to recognize as many of the avies as I can and what they are currently working on. So, Wednesday's is a great way for you to tell about what you have coming up. So come, dance, laugh and guys....enjoy your skirtcaming.

SecondLife Seasons

These are the times that tries avatar's souls.

Summer (for most Secondlife residents.) takes many of us outside. We breathe the warm air, swim, walk and rejuvenate and our Firstworld friends gobble up more of our time. Many SL'ers question "why am I in a digital world" and that thought coupled with the multitude of Secondlife repelling forces make us who remain wondering, "Should I sort my inventory?"

If you perform you'll notice your July and August patrons are so much less it makes you worry about your own relevance. Putting together a cast and having them show up has increased difficulties and tensions for the producers and directors.

Tossed into these 'summer doldrums," are other movements playing in the background. You may have noticed "The Rezzables" have pulled out of SecondLife. Well, they left a sim, Greenies, as if an explorer discovered the New World ( a world not so far away as the moon but more like the discovery of the Western Hemisphere) and having built an outpost there, of reasonable size, decided to pack everything up and leave. Behind, they left a marker, a used candy wrapper , hoping that would be enough to have future travelers follow them to find their new civilization.

I've been to "Heritage-Key". It is far more rudimentary then SL was 4 years ago. It has crashes, avatar fright and of course blonds cannot be found. But most important, it's a closed world. An island without pretty girls and handsome men. An island without pina coladas. Already their candy wrapper in SecondLife has blown behind a rock and is decomposing.

Rezzables is no different then many other corporate pioneers. The corporate entity is after 'profits'. If the future didn't hold any and the past did, the corporate world would find a way to go back in time. Captive audiences are another desire. But, the most important ingredient in corporate success is an expanding customer base. Customers filling the capability of the corporate entity and then expansion filling a larger baloon.

Now, all the variou Metaverse open grid worlds face the same problems. Lack of quality and lack of customers.. In actuality, these "Open Grid" systems are closed entities when it comes to "content." Oh, someday, perhaps all these grids will connect and a new SecondLife type metaverse will develop similar to what we have today with the sims not under one umbrella. Will it work? I don't have clue but I know it won't yet.

So, as the Twinities, Google Livlies, OpenGridies, Wannabies, Rezzables and others open and try their hand at a closed/open system and a closed society they will either disappear such as Google Lively or perhaps in the case of Rezzables they will simply watch them slowly derez into a lost tribe.

In the end, Avatarity will prevail as Humanity has regardless of the corporate desires of the new Endrun's sprouting up alone today.
