Virtual Girls and Real Men

It was bound to happen and what does it mean to us girls? Today in the Wall Street Journal comes a story from Japan (often a leader in future virtual worlds) about real men dating virtual women. I am not talking about SecondLife. Nope, these are little digital girls (I guess a bit like ozimals who can talk) on Nintendo DS game "Love-Plus+"™

These love girls are actually cute cartoon schoolgirls so before the school year begins the men are taking them on a romantic vacation (in firstlife). YES....YES...AND MORE YES....the men are renting hotel rooms (some actually renting an extra room for their lovely virtual girlfriend.) All of this since next week the girls will be in class (whatever that means? Are they going to Rockcliff University?)

Konami™ is the game creator. But, it's the choice of three girls that make this happen. There's the Manaka, Rinko, Nene. Each has a differently personality. To read more about this go to the article in the Wall Street Journal Wall Street Journal Article 

Anyhow, if Japanese men can spend a $1,000 on a weekend with their Konami™girlfriend I think we girls in SL are just to 'inexpensive'.

Got to love the virtual world

Tuesday

All I can say to all of you are these words from the song "By Your Side" by Sade

You think I'd leave your side baby
You know me better than that
You think I'd leave you down when you're down on your knees
I wouldn't do that

I'll tell you you're right when you want
and if only you could see into me

Oh when you're cold, I'll be there
Hold you tight to me

When you're on the outside baby and you can't get in
I will show you, you're so much better then you know
When you're lost and you're alone and you can't bet back again
I will find you darling and I will bring you home

And if you want to cry
I am here to dry your eyes
And in no time, you'll be fine


See you all Tuesday @ 4:30pm SLT and go see "Inception" with Leonard DiCaprio

Guess the Question

Monday, July 5, 2010

Where in The World is Lauren

Don't want any of you to think I'm gone. I just needed some time to shape up my handler in  firstlife We've been playing tennis, exercising, cooking, working and I've been thinking of a new show for August. (he's not so good at thinking but he's a man so I forgive him.)

For the past three years I've performed in SecondLife thanks to all of you and I felt I needed to weed out the good material from the bad. Also, my handler's body needed a major overhaul. Here I was in SecondLife watching what I was eating and keeping my figure tight and low body fat while he was
eating at the computer and thinking typing was an exercise.
So last month a crazy thing happened. I got to look out of SecondLife and see my handler. I was ashamed to go out with him and told him to shape up or I'd find another handler.

Anyhow, he got the message and by August (SLCC-Boston) he will look OK....not great mind you. But what do you expect? Look what I'm working with.

Dear friends, family and supporters I miss you and I'll be back soon.

Love Lauren

4:30pm SLT tonight (now)

Summertime

Summertime in SecondLife finds many avatars let their handlers go out in Firstlife and gather enough Vitamin D to make it through the future winter.

My handler has been growing tomatoes, beans, herbs, squash and other non-prim/sculptie objects.

Interesting when I've gotten in-world I've had several friends from over a year ago wander in and say hello and many friends away.

Update - my last two shows (possibly until late August) since I am taking performing off for the month of July - are
 June 19th - 9pm SLT Helen Keller - if you've never been before this is an incredible event.
June 21st - 6pm SLT SecondLife 7 Birthday - This will be filmed so brush your hair.

But, I will be back on the blog scene discussing the constant complaints about SecondLife and why the BP Oil spill may come to a sim near you.

Viewer 3.0

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

I want to thank all of you who helped me in the drive to raise funds for "Relay For Life". My goal was to raise 69,696 Lindens over 4 hours. The goal was reached in just over an hour. There are so many people to thank for this but most importantly is where the money goes. I do a few benefits a year close to my heart. One, "Coats for Kids" no longer seems to raise funds in SL. Others don't look for funds. Such as "Helen Keller Day" coming June 19th or SecondPride.

So far I've done 2 events this year for "Relay For Life" and have one more left to do. So Thank You for your love, friendship, support and being my friend.

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. At Relay, teams of people camp out at a local high school, park, or fairground and take turns walking or running around a track or path. Each team is asked to have a representative on the track at all times during the event. Because cancer never sleeps, Relays are overnight events up to 24 hours in length.

Tonight....Talking with Lauren 4:30pm SLT (Wed) - I’m here now. http://ping.fm/DZzQR

When SL Bores You what do you do?

This interesting question was posed to me the other night. We've all become bored at some point in SL. For some it's a reason to say, "I'm quitting SL" as if doing so will get to the root of why you got bored in SL.

Boredom has many tentacles.
  a. Close friends suddenly find another outlet for time they spent with you.
  b. A love connection finally goes dead
  c. Looking at the screen tires your eyes.
  d. Nothing seems new and exciting anymore
  e. You existenialize your SL
  f. You find a cure 

But, as in any life it's up to you to re-spark. And there are many ways to do this either in SL or even out.


One sure way to get rid of SL Boredom is to turn on regular TV. That will have you running back into SL faster then you probably want.
 
Another way, in world, is to simply start off on a new expedition or experience. This can be done by simply searching for something in SL you've never thought of before. (ie. Churchs, comedy -- oops they both start with C and they are both funny.) I have a friend who has created a major bunny plantation. If you had asked her would she do this she may have said 'no.' But she's having a whole new SL fun experience.


Go role-play in a group you didn't think you were interested in. Think of SL like a partner and sometimes let your partner open up new worlds for you.


If you are bored right now I suggest you go see "Alice in WonderSLand" which is a play by the Avatar Repertory Theater Company. (contact Avajean Westland or just go to XStreet and buy the tickets).


Look at your friends list.....there must be someone there you haven't spent time with but yet you made friends. Contact them and see what they are enjoying.


Most important to me is SecondLife is my life just as FirstLife is. I neither can nor want to escape either of them. I will forever be exploring new places, revisiting old and enjoying friends. 


Later I must go in-world and see if there is a sim called "Boredom"


Love, Lauren

Controversy

You'd think we were dealing with the Greek debt issue the way conversation has been regarding Viewer 2.0 (also known as the CryPad and SLVistaViewer.) Besides all the functional difficulties with it there is its 'non-immersive' quality. It appears to be the "You Tube" version of SecondLife. My handler says it doesn't bother him but it's me living in a virtual world not him.

Viewer 2.0 makes me think the M in M. Linden stands for 'mistake.' And mistakes aren't something we can well afford as SecondLifers right now.

Think of this 'Zynga' the Facebook game maker (I think the founders aren't old enough to get off the Teen Grid.) has sold $480,000,000 (dollars...not Linden) of Virtual Merchandise over the past year. Now that's a lot of sculptie skirts.

I've heard, rumor, Microsoft's X-box players get a still cartoon image for their player. Apparently, last year, they bought little emblems (school, football, baseball) of teams they like to stick on their breast pocket. Total dollar sales for MSFT $250,000,000

Three years ago I remember firstlife friends in shocked disbelief (no not because of my avie) but when I said I owned virtual land and bought virtual clothes. Well, those numbers above simply shout out, "Who's laughing now."

If only SL was a web based immersive world tied to the various social networks. Example, when you opened Facebook a small window below would actually be you in SL and you could maximize that if you wanted to. No need to download a program.

And, when virtual merchandise has a 'digital watermark' and therefore can be 'owned' by the buyer to keep or sell we will see 'virtual merchandise' trading at Sotheby's and/or Christie's auction houses for serious money. (Ok.....maybe not them but you get the idea. Everything you buy would be YOURS' to wear, stain, keep or sell.

Perhaps there will be a day when my SL avie can walk into WOW (World of Warcraft) and ask, "Do you know where I can get inoculated against the 'corrupted blood plague' or do you know where the "WalMart" store is in WOW (yes WalMart is getting into the Virtual clothing business.)

Anyhow, thanks to all of you who support me regularly and for those who made my 300th show on Tuesday. I ended the Third Season and am now doing only 'specials' and 'reruns' until September 1st when LaurenLive will start the "Fourth Season" Don't forget, if you missed a show go to LaurenLive@Treet.TV and if you want to email me Lauren's Mailbox

FirstLife vs SecondLife

FL - Carry-on luggage has an additional charge and the size keeps getting smaller (airplane)
SL - Take your entire inventory with you when you fly or teleport.

don't you prefer having all 3,000 of your dresses and 3,000 pair of shoes with you when you travel. Only in SL is that possible. You can take your fine jewelry with you and not worry about losing it.

FL - monthly credit card statement
SL - pay as you go

You can't buy something in SL unless you have the Lindens so there is no tears with a monthly statement. And remember, it's not your spending in SL that's a problem, it's the monthly statement you get in FirstLife.

FL - diet, exercise, eat no sugar, eat no fat and still you look like a People Magazine reject.
SL - eat all the SecondLife chocolates. Enjoy the Southern Fried chicken. Slide bar left.

Okay this should be real simple thought. If you can't figure out which is better you don't need bleach.

FL - Divorce is a lengthy and costly experience.
SL - De-partnering is 25L and you don't even have to talk to him to get it done.


In Firstlife the fight over the dog is way too much and when he says, "do you know how much I spent on you," especially at the wrong time of the month looking for the hammer in his tool kit is way too much energy expended on a jerk. But, in SecondLife you may still be emotionally broken but you can immediately go out clubbing and not worry about the weight you gained during the relationship.

FL - You find the perfect skirt and the right shoes to go with the outfit you've been putting together but they don't have your size.
SL - The store is never out of your size.

There's even more delightful aspects of this. You can alter your clothing right away and be at the ball the same night. And should you find yourself at his house the next morning with your dress crumpled on the floor you can simply get up....click TAKE...click HOME and you don't have to worry if you took your makeup off and you don't need to send the dress to the dry cleaners which in FirstLife could cost you $50 (unless you were wearing suede, then it will cost you the same price you paid for the skirt to have it cleaned.)

Remember these few thoughts the next time you are complaining about the problems of SecondLife. SecondLife will always have issues but so does FirstLife. Both should be viewed for their joys and the nice thing is, what doesn't work in FirstLife usually does in SecondLife.

Linden Lab is not responsible for particle stains, pixel scars and/or prim losses.

Also, this agreement states you realize this is a virtual world and you will get food and water on the other side for sustenance. Should your handler die we are not responsible for firstlife funeral cost but we will be happy to have your avatar turned into one of the stars in world for a small fee of 10,000 Lindens paid in advance. For 25,000 Lindens we will name such star. For 50,000 Lindens we will not tell your mother or wife you were in world.

Spring Has Sprung

Girls it's time for us to put away our winter clothes and get out our spring dresses. You know what that means.......you need to get in shape for SecondLife bikini weather that is just around the corner.

1. Slide bar left (to fit bikini)
2. Shave, Wax, Moisturize
3. Get a new hair style (see below)
4. Get colorful with your clothes and makeup.
5. Don't get pregnant (summer is a terrible time to be in your second or third trimester)

No more eating cake at weddings. No more "I'll just eat the whole box of chocolates." No more, "It's only a pint of ice cream."

Things I'd love to know from those who read this blog.

1. your favorite place to go dance.
2. your favorite sim to go relax

Since I'm going out-of-town till Monday I need to keep this brief but I want you all to know I carry each of you in my heart no matter where I am. And everyday when you are working hard in firstlife either at a job or simply trying your best to get through the travails of life remember let the 'Pixel Power Be With You."

Oh drat, I have to call my stylist and get my prim blond hair colored. I just hate how quickly SL prim hair grows and how expensive the particle dye is. Ooops! Dare I look below?

Lauren Live open mic Wednesday, March 17th @ 4:30 SLT http://ping.fm/2M0EX

Saint Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day Open Mic tonight at 4:30pm SLT (and please don't forget next Tuesday is Treet.TV and LaurenLive make funny.

I am becoming 'virtually' exhausted. There are now 'virtually' thousands of web sites devoted to avatars colliding and then scattering like neutronlogical pixels. Many have already relegated Plurk to the great unknown only to join Avatar United and soon the embed themselves with Avatarmeet.com

How many electrons are wasted in a day Twittering twitless twitters? There is only one avatar I know who can keep up with all of this and that is Crap Mariner. (Well, Chestnut Rau is working on a title in this category.)

We are on the cutting edge of a pixel brain transplant where the 'physical' world will vanish and our 'virtual' world will mind meld. Borg-Vulcanites conquering vast voids of digital garbage.

More and more I find myself 'sorting.' Sort my inventory. Friends have to sort their avatars. I am so happy I'm not a split-personality. Sort my in-world groups and out-world groups about in-world substance.

Oh well, on to the Fashion Fair. I'm talking SL not the NY Times. Though it would be nice one day to see the NY Times Fashion Magazine devoted entirely to SecondLife Fashion.

Wandering around the fashion fair I noticed blue is the new gray. Slut wear never wears out. Prim shoes are still sold. One size does not fit all. And, I am a compulsive shopper. I have countless dresses still in the cute bags with the shops logo sutffed into the single room elfin house Linden Labs gave me for being such a good girl.

My Linden Home resides on a sim i can't pronounce with many similar unoccupied homes. Perhaps they are second homes and it isn't time for those avatars to take a vacation yet.

Back to the Fashion Fair. I was amazed at how many unfashionable avatars were wandering around the fair till I realized there were enough unfashionable stores to accommodate them all. However, I do like the name and the various builds of the fashion fair and I did buy several new outfits.

BTW...does anyone know if there are SecondLife optometrists? ( I accidentally typed the wrong word and spell check came up with this "Ophthalmologist." I don't have a clue what this specialization is but I think some of us could use a "SLopmylogical" for our 'virtual' sanity.

Fantastic.....I've finally written a blog using my highly developed schizophrenia.

See you tonight.........Love Lauren

SecondLife Census 2010

The SecondLife census is an important part of Linden fact finding to discern where funds will be spent and on whom. It also helps land management and other planning for the future of our world. So, please make sure when you get your note card next week you answer all the question truthfully and return the card in the pre-paid self-addressed envelope.

Listed are the questions you will be receiving. This will help you prepare

Please answer every question completely. Sure, we already have this data,
but Viewer 2.0 takes longer to load everything so we thought we'd distract
you by making you fill this out.

1) How many residents are in your household?

You
Partners
Prim Babies
Slaves
Alts
Bots
Stalkers
Lindens using invisibility under God Mode so they can watch you "doing it"
(fortunately I'm an atheist so the God Mode won't work on me.)

2) What level of education has each resident obtained?

Orientation Island (yes Dorothy, Orientation Island is considered education)
The Shelter classes
Advanced classes through Art Door / Builders Brewery

LuShae Jewels

So the question you are all asking me is, "did you get your earrings from LuShae Jewelry?"

Yes, today the beautiful sterling silver CZ princess stud earrings arrived. Now you all know I'm petite and these earrings are perfect for my size. They are beautifully crafted and I wish I could wear them in-world but as you know....these are the 'real' thing.

Now there's more to tell, Sarah kept in touch with me so I can say there's wonderful customer service at LuShae. I even emailed her last night and they arrived just as she said they would, so they can track your package as well.
(btw way...shipping is currently free)
sarah@jewelryartdesigns.com

My first jewelry endorsement and I only wish I had been invited to the Academy Awards this Sunday so I could walk down the red carpet in jewels by LuShae. I think I'm going to order the 'jingle dangles' and the 'curvy cross pendant' and the 'love promise ring' and OMG...I need to cash Lindens in for $'s

Ups and Downs

This blog is really about Lushae Jewelry http://www.jewelryartdesigns.com/jewelry-jad.asp?p=Pendants and that's the big up but more on Lushae in a moment.

Both happened yesterday. Last night I competed in the Third World Asylum comedy contest and I did not win. Am I a bit emotional about losing....yes. But, it also taught me a valuable lesson. Whether my comedy is better or not is not why I do it. It's because I hope I make you laugh. You are why I perform coupled with my joy (read that blond bimbo ego). So, I've decided I will not take part in any comedic contests ever again (I compete enough in firstlife) nor will I perform before, during or after another comic. Instead I will remain independent and hope LaurenLive will continue into it's Fourth Year this June.

Now for the big UP!

Last night I received an email right after I performed. It was from Sarah of Lushae Jewelers (a firstlife company) asking if I would be willing to try one of her pieces and if I liked it to put it in my blog. Now there is nothing a girl likes more then jewelry. (well I guess there are plenty of other things but jewels are good.)

So, I want you all to help me choose and if any of you buy something please let me know what you think of it. Right now I'm stuck on the pendant page The link is the one above or follow this http://www.jewelryartdesigns.com/jewelry-jad.asp?p=Pendants

I am really torn between so many of these pieces. Which should I try?
Pendants
Leaf and Aqua Marquise
Antique Fleur De Lis
CZ Palm Tree Pendant
Summer Bouquet
(OMG I could list six more I love)
There are Dangle Earrings,Jingle Dangles CZ Earrings
Sterling Silver Flower Bud Sterling Silver Princess Studs , Rings 9 pages worth (forget the promise rings I've already been married so that's out)

SO PLEASE GO LOOK AND HELP ME PICK THE RIGHT ONE FOR ME.

And when it arrives it will be so thrilling to open up the box and see Sarah's work and of course to write a blog on the actual piece. THIS IS MY BIG UP....so in an incredible way I won last night.

Oh, and thank you all so much for coming last night

Switching Places

This is one of the more interesting projects I've come across http://graciekendal.wordpress.com/

Gracie Kendal in SecondLife will switch places with her firstlife handler Kristine Schomaker. This is amazing since Kris is physically different. Hair, weight, risk etc. So when they switch many changes will take place.

Kris will dye her hair. Have a nose piercing. Change her diet to lose weight.

Now if you don't know Gracie/Kris she is an artist but I think you should take time to get to know this project. What would you be like (you in SL) if you suddenly were thrust into Firstlife?

What would your friends list look like?
Where would you shop?

Also, please go to kris blog and give her suggestions. Perhaps even help to support her.

Profile for Lauren Weyland (lauren) | Treet TV

Where in the World is Lauren

Do you wonder where I am or what I am doing? Probably not but I'm still going to blog it. There is no joy in trying to wear a bikini in February. Especially when those prim marks from bearing little Lula make one's skin look like it's been hastily brushed in 'silverfish.'

The good news is the bra of a black bikini can always be squeezed a bit to almost increase a cup size which is quite a good look in the firstlife 'emerald' viewer. This particular swimsuit is a favorite. A reminder when everything under the skin knew exactly how to hold itself in place with the grace of an exotic gazelle.

The suit is black with red (almost invisible) stitching. The top has a nice round metal gather in the front and the bottoms are held by two easily untied string bows, one on each side. But this morning I noticed the disturbing white against tan and black (also known as a bikini line or in Brazil as a failure of class.) So this morning I am contemplating going 'topless.'

Well, the rest of them are doing it but I wonder how sensitive my nipples will be after a day of heat from the glorious sun. However, I intend to do this right after my morning breakfast. Today, I've got a wonderful baguette and a chocolate filled pastry. The strong French coffee's aroma has filled the villa's air with sensuous wake-up and I've decided 'butter' known in French as 'beurre' is not fattening. Nor will the morning's cigarette do anything but bring back memories of youth and sweaty love.

There won't be any 'sweaty love' since I am on vacation with a friend and my sweat partner is waiting for me when I return. A twist of fate. But that doesn't preclude one from the recollection of memories. Motorcycle fumes, hot bodies, salt air and a warm sun easily bring these thoughts to my frontal lobes.

Anyhow, this is your girl letting you know I miss you all and want to send you the touch, taste, aroma of sensuality.

Don't forget, I'll be back and on stage February 16th at 4:30pm (sim Tropical Treet) for another "LaurenLive@Treet.TV" but for today I am in my BoDerek 10 mood. Au Revoir Lauren

I'm off for a week...hugs to all of you....please leave my shoes alone. Love Ya....Lauren

The Black Chant

As I leave for a week, I would like to leave you another wonderful work by hadjipt and Veronika. I marvel at the craftsmanship and brilliance these two bring to our world and the many other friends I have who also ease their thoughts between pulsating electrons to become pixelated thoughts. Meanwhile, I'll be gone for a week and you'll find I 'wont' go that way."

Open Mic Tonight 4:30pm SLT at Cookie and after TerryLynn Melody http://ping.fm/aj4DJ

Liars and Tiger and Linden Bears, OH MY!

We are just two weeks away from "Valentine's Day" in SecondLife. Do you know where you avie is?

This is an incredible time in SecondLife. There's a dozen roses someone must have made back in 2005 and is copy, modify and transfer. Nothing says I love you like the flowers you gave to your last 5 loves of your 'secondlife.'

And as sure as March comes after February we will be seeing (and hearing) the new babies of SecondLife. Somewhere by the beginning of spring (March 21st) I'll be out shopping and suddenly in Exorcism green will come, "Your baby is growing inside you and is so happy."

But back to Valentines Day. Does anyone know what the "Linden Bear" will be? Does anyone care? Have you made your SL reservations with your paramour? Have you bought the new red dress that Shouted Couture offered for 100 Linden? (that's what I'm going to wear.)

What about new dances? A clean Xcite Hud, never used before? Don't you think she would be so happy knowing your hud had not been to last year's valentine day party? Don't you think she'd rather see a new, not properly colored cock so she'd know it had never been hiding in some other girl's cave?

In firstlife, the week before Valentine's is often 'break-up' time. Why? Because a guy thinks, "I can skate by without a gift and 'make-up' the week after." Girls, you don't think guys think like that? Yes, and disappointment is just another word to say, "I love you."

So, in closing I may not write another blog before I return from vacation on FEB 14th (yes I'll be back for Valentine's Day.) but 'Will you be my Valentine? Apply Inside."

Oh, for comments....please leave your favorite Valentine Day song? The best to dance to. The best to listen to. The best to cry to. The best to say, "No" too.

WHY, WHY, Why

My friend Josue Habana wrote a piece the other day in response to Karen Myers poorly conceived rant. (you can read her blog here)
and Josue's
(you can read here)

I often don't feel compelled to answer unintelligent negative blogs but this made my Brazilian curl. And even one of the comments got a reply comment from me. Why people have to put down those of us in SecondLife is a reminder of the smallness still surrounding us and the bigotry and hatred seething just below the surface.

Here is my comment to her blog, then a woman's comment and childish reply and my comment to the 'childish reply.'

It is interesting to read a review by someone unqualified to write it. Ms. Myers either found her experience in SL (if she even came in) parallel to her FirstLife and chose to be a prostitute. However, she must have failed at this in the same way her blog fails at depth, understanding or even journalistic integrity. There are many people in SL who create within all the arts. I have bought Firstlife paintings from artists I've met in SecondLife. There are musicians (guess music isn't Karen's thing). And I imagine Ms. Myers chose the batmobile over the poetry, scripting, comedy and dancing. However, Ms. Myers probably watches television, that 2 dimensional avatar world where information is only pushed at her rather then the push/pull world of SecondLife. And, for the record, I have met many of my friends in SecondLife in Firstlife. I've attended plays, concerts, visited their galleries and seen just how talented so many are. Now, Ms Myers, I am not faulting your foray into "Twilight" nor your fantasy of meeting Edward but the rest of us seem to be a bit busy in SecondLife doing real things (like extending our entire lives and reaching out globally in making new friends. Also, I've done numerous benefits in SecondLife raising thousands of dollars for Firstlife causes such as Cancer, Coats for Kids, the Helen Keller Foundation and many more. So, I will leave your great desire to be a journalist with this comment, "I think you may be more qualified as an escort then an explorer."

one other reply:

I am a 55 year old woman who is widowed. I have two grown children and a grandchild. (he's beautiful, BTW) I work full time as a receptionist in a retirement community. I've been there over 20 years. I enjoy reading, movies, and photography. I do yoga and walk as much as I can to ward off the heart disease that runs in my family.

And...oh yes...I have this hobby. It's called Second Life. Please stop insulting me.

the childish reply:

I really liked the article about a second life. I am a middle school teacher and everyone, parents and children, are stuck behind a computor way too much. Get outside, move around find somthing real and productive to do!

Doing somthing make believe is great when you are five but real life can be much more satisfying:)

As to the 55 year old woman, well I am 59 and I feel sorry for you if that's your hobby making believe. Perhaps you should join a literary circle and make some real people contact. I have grandchildren and I go to the park and play, sledding in the snow or take them on nature walks. Most working individuals wouldn't have time for a phoney second life because real life is very demanding.

In conclusion if I want to do somthing I want to really do it, not just pretend, where the self satisfaction in that?

and my reply to her:

It's sad when one person's only way to validate their life is by putting down another. Raising the ante (I'm 59 she's 55) as if to say you are smarter by 4 years is known in all business circles as a small person trying hard to be taken seriously.
You'd have probably advised Ann Frank not to write her diary (confined for 2 years) but get out and join a club. So much of what keeps you alive was created in atmospheres you'd disapprove of.
I'm not sure if your misunderstanding comes from not knowing there is socialization in SecondLife or perhaps the inability for you to be creative (which is not an insult.) Creative people always need readers, watchers, users, followers.
As to your 'most working people,'I have worked for 50 years and am still top in my firstlife business. I have been highly successful (believe me this is accurate and if you need to measure size I'd be happy to) in several other businesses.I travel around the world regularly and will be off to St. Barth's in a couple of weeks. I maintain friends from college to seniors in nursing homes. I could continue with the homes I've built by hand. The songs I've written produced etc. But the most important fact I can leave you with is NOT TO JUDGE others who do no harm. Imagine, your grandchildren wouldn't exist if you hadn't stayed home one day to produce children (when you could have been at a literary club instead of whatever performance art you called your childrens conception.

Happy Peace Day

Plastic Dreams - Ming Bridges' Virtual Music Video

There are times you simply love what your friends make and then you want to share with friends who have never seen. This is one of those videos my dear friend Pooky Amersterdam with others made. Have fun listening

Please Think About Helping Me

I would so appreciate it if you could find the time to vote (each day you can vote again) for me at the Streamy's

Streamy Voting

There is no way any of us in SL can win. This is a big event but all of you can at least make a difference and perhaps they will know we do perform in SL.

These are the categories I am listed in. When you go to the link above you will see you can change to single submission. First vote best comedy and then the others. It's a bit tiresome since it closes the window after each vote.


Best Comedy - LaurenLive
Best Actress in a Comedy - Lauren Weyland
Best Director of a Comedy - Lauren Weyland
Best Writer of a Comedy - Lauren Weyland

Love you all for your support and friendship

Of course when you land on the sim (Tropical Treet - http://slurl.com/secondlife/Tropical%20Treet/114/18/25 ) you will have to head due south. For some reason Treet.TV is trying to keep me hidden.
LaurenLive 4:20pm SLT -TONIGHT- sim (Tropical Treet - http://ping.fm/3uF6B )

2010

2010 - Our own little space odyssey. Just to note Tonight, January 5th at 4:30pm SLT LaurenLive@Treet.TV (sim Tropical Treet - southern end of sim) You'll need to use map to find Lauren's Place.

As we begin a new year and a new decade let us all find new hope and optimism for ourselves and our friends. I am well aware how many of my friends in SecondLife and the entire digital universe suffer from financial stress and physical aliments. We have shared some of our deepest fears and our most profound joys.

(Now, I have to be careful here since if Crap reads this she will definitely do a robotic vomit but what can I say.)

I attended a meeting on Sunday hosted by "World2Worlds". Although it covered many areas of avatar life and soul I found many of the avatars don't allow themselves a 'true view' of who they are. I accept the fact that a vast majority of people are simply trying to find a way to cope with life itself by limiting the larger realm of truth.

And, I also accept that I have pushed the envelope so wide that perhaps I need a larger and more flexible envelope.

However, when I hear avatars say they are exactly who they are in firstlife and or women who have, often used, male avie alts and vice versa make such "exactly the same person," comments I feel they aren't allowing others to see who they are for many reasons. But also, I think their own fear of nonacceptance sends out camouflaged conversation.

And so to the point. If you have an avatar and use it frequently you are more then what you are in firstlife. Example, a full sized woman age 50 has a 28 year old Barbie shaped avatar she associates a part of herself as that avatar so she can't say she is 'exactly' who she is in firstlife and secondlife.

A woman who has a male avatar to enhance her fashion blog and says she has no associated sensory masculinity is hiding a truth. Once you create an avatar that no longer represents your age or gender or shape or in any other way is NOT exactly who you are in firstlife a metamorphosis occurs. You may want to deny it for safety sake but believe me you'd never pass a newly minted psychiatrist with the malarkey of stating 'no change'.

I write this blog so that each of you who read understand the expansion your having chosen an avatar has brought your mind. To understand that even if you have only made an avatar that is younger then the physical you, you've made a private statement on aging. But, I have yet to meet an avatar so single faceted. In fact, the avatars I know have expanded their souls. Some by doing things they never would have thought of as just firstlifers. Others by having beliefs, concepts, attitudes so radically changed there is no longer a world for them without their avatar (and/or alts) to accompany them.

The meeting Sunday with "World2Worlds" was a truly amazing show but at the same time it barely scratched the surface of "Who we are as avatars and How does it affect our Firstlives." Do not deny yourself the joy of what you have created because you fear the witch hunts of Salem but instead embrace the journey.
