  1. Today on 5-01-1931, Herbert Hoover dedicated the Empire State Building. Soon after,a giant Primate engages in shenanigans atop a neighboring building........ sort-of.....
  2. I really have only one insight; pick friends from a venue where you know their track record. Like *this* one (forum) for example :-) Here in this thread, you've seen a lot of good advice from really great *people* who care more than the average avatar. You can see a particular form user's previous postings, and that will tell you a lot about what kind of friend they'll make. Then; say hello :-)
  3. I completely agree, but the answer I got when I asked about that topic was that messing with Presence would somehow mess up vendor systems or cause issues with the economy - so no matter how badly I was being stalked, the only recourse was to make a new avatar. A true "globally invisible" system was not in the cards. I'm not technically astute on server systems, and not even a night at Holiday Inn Express could help me smart enough to make heads or tails of that :-)
  4. This is not going to be some l33t-para-gamer disrespecting Family Roleplay - although what I'm going to say surprises me.... I have been roleplaying in SL since 2005 and my characters (on my RP alt) have been in most of the better-known RP sims. I'm a frustrated writer, so I'm one of those evil "Para-posters" - altho I self-identify as a "Flexi-Poster" (I adapt my style to the group). I've played criminals, cops, "Loose Women", and done the "action stuff" as well as participated in "Dystopian", "High Fantasy" and "Modern Fantasy Sims". I have all the Snobby-Roleplayer Badges you might expect for someone who would say (disdainfully); "Oh, you do Family Roleplay; that's nice" Ok, not all Paraposters are that self-acribed-superior - but looking at some posts on this forum I can see that a few of you have bumped into "RP Purists" who have no time for any RP ideology that isn't theirs.. So when I accidentally backed my way into a Family Roleplay, I was surprised at how much I liked it. My character in a "Modern RP sim" had a neighbor whose character was Pregnant and whose family situation was "unique". Our characters became friends socially, and suddenly I'm all involved in this extended family that really *was* interesting, unpredictable and quite a bit of fun. No car chases, gun battles, fight scenes, drug deals or any of the staples that normally go with the "major" RP sims. ..and it was FUN. Looking back on it, I can see that the allure of Family Roleplay might just be that it offers a chance to simulate what we missed in Real Life. Most of us grew up in an era where Mom Works Too, or maybe Mom is the Only Parent. Family RP gives us a chance to explore a perhaps-ordinary life that's still mysterious to many of us. Its simpler than RL, but in some ways that can be comforting. So, I can understand why we see all the posting about "new Family Sim". Not all are the same - but I'm done discounting it. Roleplay is Roleplay and Character Development is Character Development; it doesn't have to be exotic to be fun as long as the Players are into it. As with all things roleplay; your personal experiences may vary :-D
  5. Imagine the hysteria that night when I came home and my neighbor asked me how work was that day.... "Well, today I helped someone perform a milk-enema......"
  6. The solution was to allow me into the men's-room where he was holed-up in a stall and enduring a LOT of pain. I sent someone to the lunchroom for bottles of milk from the machine; which I handed to him over the door and instructed him to "apply topically" (it helps to dissolve the capsaicin which causes the burn). I'm pretty sure he never ate pickled jalapenos as a snack again, or if he did - he washed his hands thoroughly before adjusting his bottom.....
  7. This would be a follow-up to my original Vanity shot.... Originally, I had posted about the Giant Bunny my partner left me for Easter. Since then "Waldo" has become a permanent resident on our property where he chomps grass and leaves the pet cheetahs we already had roaming the grounds looking very disconcerted. Cheetah #1: "What the hell IS that thing?" Cheetah #2: "I have no idea but did you see the size of its poop?" This updated photo of domestic bliss is of my Partner and I enjoying our cuddle-chair-by-the-pool, watching Waldo guard the house (he's visible up against the foundation).
  8. I've been an Industrial First Responder for about 22 years now. My most mentally-damaging call was not a CPR thing - some guy managed to get jalapeno oil on his hemorrhoids...... I still have nightmares......
  9. I run into people like that from time to time. My theory is that if I keep running into them, they'll back off...... My insurance company loves me......
  10. Not knowing specifically *which* urban and Gorean RPs you are in, I *can* say that "location is everything". There seem to be a lot of hetero males in Crackden for example and I'm sure they are elsewhere. If you're seeing a lot of something you're personally not comfortable with, changing venue is often a good solution mainly because sims tend to "norm out" to various RP cultures. I haven't been around Gor in a long, long time - but as I recall there are a LOT of Gorean RPs in SL to pick from. Something else to consider (and this is one I have to monitor myself on); I come from an age group (age-cohort) that has generally different social customs than people under-30. That means the possibility for mis-cues when old fogies like me deal with younger folks who have a whole different sexual subtext/language; sometimes things seem sexual when they aren't. Not knowing your RL age, this may or may not apply to you - but differences in real-life age-scripting can cause misunderstandings in SL because (usually) we all look under-30 and we lack visual cues other than how we dress. Hopefully that last did not offend; I'm not implying that you're doing anything wrong - that's just something I have seen people run into before. Good luck in your hunt for friends :-) I raised a son and know how important having a male-peer group can be to a guy :-)

    Hello there S :-) Welcome to the Forums !!!'
  12. AmandaKeen

    Looking for...

    I really love roleplay (I am a frustrated Writer) - but SL Roleplay has been contracting a lot recently. Convergence might work for you - but the app used to be longish. i can think of three other sims that met your criteria, but all folded due to RP Purity Wars/Personality Conflicts in the last couple of years. If you find something amazing, please let me know :-)
  13. I can see someone's Busy Response now; "Sorry, I'll get back to you soon; I'm busy breeding my shoes..."
  14. Monso hair :-) (Monso & Mudskin) Really nice "messy" styles and their red-tones are awesome (unlike many red-hair textures).
  15. The Presence system really does seem to glitch a lot and say people are online when they aren't.... ...and some people are butt-heads and sometimes play deaf.......
  16. It truth, two people can live in harmony - but if there are three, two will Anathematize the third and declare some form of Holy War. That works for religions, philosophy, politics and even roleplay-groups ("that's not REAL para-post"). Our tendency towards dis-harmony is only offset by our libido. If humans were not looking for new Adult Relations constantly, we'd have wiped each other out long ago ;-)
  17. In my defense, it really was a massively bad hair day...... and the kids had been rowdy...... and it was tax day....
  18. Non-Mesh will probably continue to have followers, but the supply of new non-mesh skins and clothing will probably thin out dramatically as content creators go where the perceived money is.
  19. I kinda like the following reference and have used it for a while; The Catnap Kitty Body Proportion Kind of like some RL fitness programs project optimal shoulder, weight and hip dimensions based on height, The VERY smart-kittty author bases her SL sizing on head-size. Using it would help make sure the body-to-head ratio was correct. Also, as a question; don't shoe-bases and some mesh bodies throw off the body-height reading ?
  20. A couple of thoughts; (a) - At one time SL had several groups that offered a course of training for Submissives. I will try to dig up information and post that for you as well. If you can locate one of those, it will give you exposure to the terminology, customs and the more Accepted Practices of the BDSM community. It might also get you started off without falling into the hands of a Dominant who does not have your best interests at heart. Once you build up a baseline of experience, you will know more about your limits and kinks. (b) - If you re looking for a Female Dominant, the Velvet Thorn is a very welcoming community (I used to host there in Saturday's). I would reccommend that you go to one of their events, find someone with a Velvet Mistress tag and ask permission in Local to speak to them in IM about learning more about Velvet Thorn and FemDom. They should be able to offer insight and perhaps direct you to a Dominant who can help you. (c)..Be sure of what you want. If you read item "b" and said to yourself "why the hell do I need to ask in local for permission to IM someone ?", then Bondage and Discipline might not be your "thing". If it made Perfect Sense, then continue....... No judgement there, it's just that many people who want -only- erotic bondage really don't want bondage and discipline outside the bedroom, and a big chunk of the SL BDSM crowd are focused on "Lifestyle" bondage that takes place in and out of the bedroom. (d) - I would really reccommend that you start off pursuing the Submissive role. "Slave" is a whole other gig and time as a Submissive would tell you whether or not Slave is really up your alley. Hopefully this helped a little. If you want to chat, feel free to PM me. I am not looking for a Submissive right now, but maybe I can help with information :-)
  21. I'm doing analysis for a multinational group on the upper-end. Trying to explain Pop Culture to other cultural groups is interesting, although it often underscores the absurd points of pop culture :-) "Its not supposed to make sense, its allegedly funny" Some days its fun, some days my brain hurts :-)
