Tapas and Clothes - 2.jpg

"Do you ever feel so incredibly alone? Like you’re surrounded by people, and you have the most amazing friends and support system, but for some reason you can’t just get out of your head? It’s like with every moment, it’s just another stone placed on your chest. One stone is fine, and so is two and three and four and exponentially more. Until it gets to the point, where everything feels too heavy. Sometimes you just need to take a step back and remember to breathe." Read more on the blog.

"I’ve taken plenty of breaks from Second Life but I always get back into it and every time I do, I see amazing progress. My most recent return after another three year break has left me in awe of the great advancements in realistic 3D graphics, virtual world features, and the ever-active and thriving virtual world community and creator economy."

"I started last year’s retrospective with “So, 2020. That sort of happened, didn’t it?” So, 2021. That—  Yeah, no. Let’s get off on a better foot than that, and dive right into this post. It’s two days before Christmas as I start writing this, and that’s no time to ‘Bah, humbug’ at the world. Let’s take a look at some of my favourite things from my digital life this year, both inworld and out. And there will be a few more categories this time around, so prepare for a deeper delve than last year." Read more on the blog.

No time for real life - 26.jpg

"We have so much to be thankful for. If I think of material things we can name a warm bed and clothing and family and friends. I also think of the social aspect of Second Life and how it has helped so many people to interact with, especially through the pandemic, but also during times when some could not be mobile to meet people and socialize."

"The opening party for ReConstruct was a great success. DJ Viv gave us two hours of period music to match the 1940s/1950s theme including some songs that reflected the pre-apocalyptic, dark humour of a tougher generation than our own. Cate Infinity of Infinite Productions, Dave of the Limoncello Art Gallery and their guests danced among the exhibition’s artworks in the bombed-out ruins of a building in Tempelhof on a remote, forgotten German island."

"One of the ways in which I keep my finger on the pulse of Second Life is to head to YouTube, do a search for “second life”, then sort the results in reverse chronological order by the time they were uploaded (i.e. most recent videos first). Usually, I scroll back 24 to 48 hours to see what the latest SL videos are, and I always find something to delight and surprise me." Read more on the blog.

"As regulars to these pages will know, one of the aspects of region design I tend to keep an ear out for and appreciate, is that of a well-crafted ambient sound scape. In fact, not only do I listen for local ambient sounds when visiting regions, I also use them in both my public and private builds; hence why I was intrigued when my Redoubtable Region Spy Shawn Shakespeare (SkinnyNilla) passed me an LM to Hear How Your Landscape Should Sound, and decided to hop and take a look (and listen) sooner rather than later."

Sadie : Lament

"Every year like clock work the day of ones birth comes around. In Second Life it is known as ones Rez Day. In real life it is ones birthday. Birthdays are about celebrating life. It is to celebrate the person being part of this universe and how their life might have touched others. To celebrate with them while they are alive. Some people like to throw celebrations and birthday parties. After all, everyone loves a birthday party, right?" Read more on the blog.

Life Of Chuu - 1.jpg

"I was ending a beginning, a pain no one hears,
Efforts are fading, tools breaking, a machine rusting its gears,
A tape bandaging, a heart’s breaking, ten billion pieces I fear,
A sorrow dancing, a joy curtaining, my demon reappears,
A continued suffering, a lesson keeps learning, nobody’s here,
A bright lip radiating, a sorrow concealing, a droplet was crystal clear,
I was faking while revealing, a smile amidst the tears."
