  1. I would describe Second Life as an on-line, multiuser enviroment that is only limited by a user's imagination and the time and money they want to invest in it. Its main uses are to facilitate social interaction between users via their avatars and to provide a creative platform for self-expresion and/or to make money.
  2. Tuesday hugs to you Val and everyone. Another cute photo. :smileyhappy:

Pilot friends of mine also mentioned that the same happens when learning to fly. You end

You must be used to a different game, which is another example of different controls not feeling right to what you are used to. I think most people have a difficult time getting used to the movement and camera controls of Second Life. It takes time to adjust. On my first free shopping expeditions I made my avi walk up and down the stairs, trying to get used to controlling her walking and she ended up falling over the raillings a couple of times. Good thing there's flying in SL. :smileyhappy:

  6. Here is a link to another thread on this form about facelights: To wear a face light or not?

  9. Did you come across any "smile" animations? Are there such things? I hung out with a male avi for a brief time that would smile every once in awhile in the middle of dancing or sitting or standing. (I wish I had asked him about the smile since I found it appealing.)
  10. If I ever get back into the game I will be customizing my AO and looking for new hair, and off cource always tweaking the shape. I did like the free flexi hair I had except it was too long. I'm not completely happy with mesh hair either so it could be difficult to find something. I love seeing all the before and after pictures. Everybody is looking pretty good now. Great idea for a thread.

On the other hand, there are three items that I think are absolutely vital to one's look for which I ultimately decided I couldn't rely upon freebies: skins, hair, and animations. Possibly, again, I am being picky, or maybe the importance I accord these three items just reflects my own personal predilections, but I finally broke down and bought all of these. I also spent countless hours tweaking my shape, but that's another story. ... I completely agree. In the last 6 months I've spent less than an hour in game so the transformation of my avi hasn't progressed

  13. Don't take it personally. I knew that as soon as you used the word game there would be someone to bring up the endless discussion here whether SL is a game or not. Some people have a more narrow definition of what a game is and seem to need to contradict those who do not. Just ingnore it or this thread could devolve into another one of those discussions.
  14. Good luck with your venture. I'll be interested in the results even if I don't have anything to contribute to its creation.
  15. Yes, loved the video Coby. We had a cat, Mittens (she had an extra toe on each paw), who was best friends with our 95 lb German Sheppard. She would ambush him by leaping out from behind a tree when he ran by when we threw the frisbee for him. She also would throw herself down on her back in front of him and paw at his muzzle. They slept together and you knew when her claws dug too deep when she kneaded him because he would leap up out of bed with a yelp. Soon after we moved to a new house Mittens was laying on the ground in front of a big pine tree in the front yard when this aggressive

If you are wanting my OK to appreciate the paintings now, I have no problem with that. I even appreciate listening to Jackson 5 songs now even though I have no doubt that Michael would have had a happier life if he had been allowed to have a childhood instead of being pushed into being the bread winner of his family at such an early age.

I can't even begin to imagine how a painting of a naked child, displayed hundreds of years after the child's death (again if the child is a real person in the first place) can be harmful for this child in the same way as

A child is a child regardless of which era they were born in. You still have not given us a reason WHY? One reason is the same one for the statutory rape law.

Take for example the work of Robert Mapplethorpe or Sally Mann. I think whether a painting or a photograph is art or pornography depends on 2 things - the artist and the viewer. What was the intent of the artist, what were they trying to convey and how does the viewer perceive it.

That's why they're classics. ... The suggestion that the paintings are lacking because they don't move reflects more on the author than the art. ... I totally agree. The only picture that I appreciated being animated was one of the first that depicted the water rippling in the light, but then I like landscapes better than portraits. Edited for spelling
  21. It sounds like fun. I'm intending to go in world soon (haven't in several months) and this sounds like the perfect opportunity. I have something else scheduled for this afternoon but maybe I can make it before and/or after. Take lots of pictures and let us know where we can view them, just in case. (I've noticed you take really good pictures, as well everyone else in this thread.)
  22. Yes, I'm better. You get alot of snow in your area so I guess you do have to clean it off as it accumulates and you just know as soon as your snow blower dies you'll get a big storm. Hope the snow delays until you can get it fixed or replaced.
  23. Happy Friday. I'm back in sunny Florida. Got home yesterday after being sick for a week. Almost every time I go north to visit family for the holidays I get sick. Whatever anybody has I catch it. But today is warm and sunny - shirtsleeve weather. Plan on going for a walk in a little bit. Hope everyone has a great weekend. P.S. Maddy do you need to shovel? Just walk over the snow and pack it down, unless it is very deep. How much do you have? Coffee/hot chocolate breaks are something to look forward to, at least.
