I have not done a video in a long while, with the introduction of Bakes on Mesh by Second Life to the grid, the release of the new Redux system by Slink gave everyone the chance to see first hand how it could work. They have been working diligently on the newer system for a year or so, and while Bakes on Mesh was not a part of the official viewers it was in beta for a great amount of time, so people could test out features, create content for it to be ready to go. <click here to read more at SasyScarborough>
A week ago today SL lost one of the absolute leading lights in the blogging world, Autumn Rose. Some knew her as Denna, some as Autumn and some by her legacy name candygunpowder. She was the overall winner of last year’s Bloggie for Overall Blogger or Vlogger of the Year and she was my Second Life son’s girlfriend. <click here to read more at the Glamour Sauce>
“At no other time (than autumn) does the earth let itself be inhaled in one smell, the ripe earth; in a smell that is in no way inferior to the smell of the sea, bitter where it borders on taste, and more honeysweet where you feel it touching the first sounds. Containing depth within itself, darkness, something of the grave almost.” <click here to read more at Twisted Euphoria>
It’s no mystery that Missing Melody is one of my favorite destinations in Second Life.
I had, in fact, already written a post and record a short video to remember over time the creative ability of Bambi. <click here to read more from VIRTUALITY>
I am breaking this list down in to a few posts because you all would be scrolling for weeks if I attempted to list ALL of my favorite candles in one shot. The candles I am sharing today are a mix of new and old and are ones I use frequently in my scenes. <click here to read more on ModHause>
It's the weekend! and I really want to get some work done around the house. Getting the front yard closed off in time for fall and a new bedroom set. After so many days of just work this weekend, I was ready to take a one night and day getaway. Come join me for a relaxing weekend. - Quin <Click here to watch the video on Quincy Robin's YoutTube>
"My favorite time of the year is here, with the breezes becoming crisper with fresh, cool air and the colorful palette of fall covering the landscapes in RL and in SL. Tours are in the last stages of planning for the season and you can feel an excitement thrumming through fellow Fall lovers, all eager for the turn of the seasonal clock." <Click here to read more on the Gridwide Wanderlust blog>
"In my little backwoods, middle of nowhere hometown, there is this beautiful old Greek Revival plantation home that was build in the late 1600’s. When I was a child, no one lived there. They did enough maintenance to keep it in good enough condition to sell one day but otherwise, it just sat there…empty. As a child, I always found that incredibly sad and always dreamed of living there."<Click here to read more on the Blended Beauty Blog>
"Just a couple of days left in September and I am so glad to be seeing the back of this month. I always knew September was going to be a hard month but I had my vacation at the beginning. I can at least say this month is starting and ending perfectly…the bit in the middle was not so great. All is on the up again now and I’m back to feeling focused and happy." <Click here to read more on the Glamour Sauce blog>

"Now summer is really over, my favourite season has arrived: Autumn! Being a September child, Autumn always brings back happy memories of birthday parties, a new winter coat, hiking boots and comfort food such as pea-soup and stews!
And yeah, also the less joyful things as rain, wet socks, muddy floors and struggling to get to the weekly market on my bicycle." <Read more at Caitlin Tobia's blog>
"So if you're looking for new release reviews or whatever then move along, lol. I just really want to talk about how much I love Bakes on Mesh. I know everyone else is but...I want to so whatever. XD I have been posting things on Flickr about it, such as HERE and HERE, and probably will continue to. I just love it so much. I practically cried when I was able to wear my freckles again. Here is just a fun look I put together:" <Click here to read more on the Broke by Payday blog>
"Somewhat unusually for this blog, I’m covering three exhibitions of art split across two galleries – Club L.A. and Kiku Gallery – that between them presents three very individual displays of art by Second Life artists, and which are each small enough to make a joint interesting and contrasting visit for those who enjoy art in Second Life." <Click here to read more at the Living in a Modem World blog>

Enchantress of the night

Keep safe all who gather here
Within the protective shelter of your arms.” <Click through to read more at the Twisted Euphoria blog>

"Yesterday, September 29, 2019, the official news came from the owners of Chouchou regarding joining to the Second Region Preservation Society. We are talking about the program that allows the rescue of regions that, without the support of LL, would close.
The owners of Chouchou have therefore made official the decision to preserve their sim and to resurrect the sim Chouchou XVI – The Babel that went off-line in 2013." <Click here to read more on the Virtuality blog>

"Mostly, I've been enjoying RP and organizing my inventory if I'm ever even on SL, so I figured I'd mostly cover that now. I'll also be getting back into photography and sl tutorials. Tell me how you all have been, as well as request some videos you might like to see! xo, Cassie" <Click here to view the full video at Cassie Middle's YouTube page>
"Hello and thank you for watching. You know already how I love to shop and in this little series, I show you some of what I do with items after I get them in my eager little hands...this one covers how to texture an item the simple way, and a few other things in relation to that. Hope this helps, and if there is something you are curious about, let me know in the comments, and if I know how, or can find out, I'll share in an upcoming vid. Please note that I am using Firestorm so if you do not, this MAY only help so much.." <Click here to watch the video in full on Selena Troye's YouTube Channel>
"Things have been a bit quiet on this blog (and on my Flickr stream) recently. You noticed, right? Of course you did. Well, for the last eight months I’ve been working on a pretty large machinima project, a full-blown science fiction movie called Stömol – all filmed in Second Life. It’ll be about an hour long and will feature an original soundtrack by a very talented friend of mine. Without wanting to employ hyperbole, I don’t think anything quite like this has been done before, and I’m looking forward to its release very much." <Click here to read more on the What the Huck blog>
- Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness
- Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun
- Conspiring with him how to load and bless
- With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
- To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
- And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
- To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
- With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
- And still more, later flowers for the bees,
- Until they think warm days will never cease,
- For Summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells."
