  1. KC Couture has a flat called Amy, and it's my go-to for flats. =D https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/KC-AMY-Ballerina-for-Slink-Flat-Maitreya-Belleza-Eve-Meshproject/6288620 I have several alts as well, so I know that feeling as far as budgeting and so on. That said, the price is right if you wish to treat yours as well. 😃
  2. It varies, depending on what I am doing. Just relaxing at home is in the neighborhood of 32 - 50 Out shopping, I tend to go to 64 ish. Will dial down to 32 if it's super laggy or crowded. Might crank up to 80-ish if i need to cam. When building, it depends on the build, and how far I need to "see". Taking pics, it pretty much depends on the locale, and what I want in the picture. 32 - 64 for closeup, 128 or more if I want a lot of scenery in the background. Flying, I crank it up to at least 256 if not more.
  3. I'm not sure I'd care to be friends with just any random stranger. I generally pass at least 19 times out of 20. One best make one heck of an impression on me to accept such a request. Otherwise, only way I'd accept if it's established that one is an alt of a friend, and my friends tend to be good about that. Though that's really not a stranger in that case. Now, if I am reading the profile of a total stranger, and I see something that I don't like, or gives me a bad vibe, or I come to see a large number of groups that I find objectionable, or revolve around sex, I tend to not only decline the request, I also wind up muting/blocking that person.
  4. Pretty much this, and I agree. I must agree.
  5. Been a while since I've put something new up. *^_^*;; Enjoy!
  6. This song has been getting stuck in my head a lot latley.
  7. Pretty much any plane made by Shana Carpool, or Tig Spijkers. ( sp? ) I find Carpool's easy to operate, and very forgiving. 😃 Just need an F-86 or some mid century jet design,and I'll be a most happy camper. That being said, her Cessna 172 is an excellent go to for taking friends on a cruise/flight. Also, Starhelm has some really nice steampunk airships. I am trying to think of the maker's name for this one car. It's on the tip of my tongue, and I'll probably remember it when I log inworld later. XD They used to have lots of vintage vehicles, with a decent script. Inexpensive too! Alas, said cars are discontinued now. =(
  8. Well, there is one thing I've heard of, called a "Fluffer nutter burger", which is pretty much peanut butter and marshmallow creme on a hamburger. Recently tried one, and I must say it was a rather interesting flavour profile. Of course, I don't recommend having too often, lest one's heart protest it quite vehemently.
  9. I am also part of the "Alt promoted to main" crowd. Ironically, it took another alt cosplaying that reminded me of an old comic/story that I wrote and drew many years ago, and I was inspired to bring a character to life in SL. My other toons are still arund, though nowhere near as active as I now. One even still carries all my building materials! That being said, I am saddened and angry when people do use other toons for nefarious purposes, such as having affairs, griefing and so on, especially when there are legitimate uses for alts. To the OP, you have my condolences on your loss. =( I'm also sorry that you had to find things out about him after the fact. With that, do keep close to you all the good memories. Exactly! =D
  10. They have a movie theather set up, and a screen and things where you can pick an MST3K movie by season. Pretty fun. Even has a group so you can see what movies they'll be playing. And even when there's no one there, you can start a movie yourself. Always fun times to be had! =D I can relate to that as well. =(
  11. Largely spend time with family, partner and friends. Hang out and watch movies and videos. Sometimes even check out the Mystery Science Theater 3000 sim in SL, and hang out there. I also enjoy building, flying, and the odd bits of RPing, and DJing. Sometimes shop if there's something that catches my eye.
  12. The Smurfs were pretty fun back in the day. Looked forward to seeing them alongside the Pac Man cartoon in the early 80s. I fondly remember the days of MTV actually Gasp! playing music! What a shocker, eh? Especially once I started getting to metal, and Headbanger's Ball was a thing. Headbanger's Ball kindly hit the "Would you like to know more?" button for me as I started to learn about new bands, along with assorted magazines of that era. Anyone remember Metal Maniacs? And yes, kids have that way of keeping you up to speed on things. Even if you don't have any of your own, nieces, nephews and cousins will kindly do that for you. XD A few christmases ago - this was back when Frozen came out - I was talking with my cousin, and she jokingly told me she was on for a night of constant "Let it go". So, I told her about the song "Happy", and she said "Thanks a lot! Now I have that in my head instead!" XD
  13. For music, my old folks introduced me to a variety of rock and roll that was around during the 1970s. My step-dad was especially fond of Meatloaf's "Bat out of hell". They were also fond of a local rock station that played the likes of Boston, REO Speedwagon and Van Halen, and stuff like that. Naturally, in the mid 80s I too was among those whom discovered heavy metal music. The first metal tapes I acquired with my own money were Dokken's "Back for the attack" and Metallica's "... And justice for all". Just before that, a friend lent me a dub copy of Metallica's other albums, and I got into those. Comic books have also been a favourite of mine since childhood. I read and collected a lot of Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Transformers, Indiana Jones, X-men. Later got into the Punisher as well as Spawn when those came out. Sgt. Rock is cool as well. And I sometimes see ones of like Star Trek, and even McHale's Navy at flea markets and the like.
  14. Watch the movie "Independence Day" aka ID4. Perhaps have a burger, and drink a beer.
  15. Oh, gosh, this a gazillion times over! >=O At home, I have an airfield. Recently, some nob moved in, and put these big blocky things in the sky. Also, holy full bright abuse! >_< That really gets my goat.
  16. Yes, Builder's Brewery is your best bet. Just go to their sim, and sign up for their group. Lots of stuff to do there. 😃
  17. Rocky Jones! =D I got turned on to Rocky Jones, first by way of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Then some years later, I came across a box set of the whole series. Love it, as I have a soft spot for vintage sci fi. I still need to see Forbidden Planet, and it's on my bucket list. In other shows that came out before I was born, my folks introduced me to the likes of Leave it to Beaver, Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, Addams Family, McHale's Navy, Gomer Pyle, Green Acres, Mister Ed, F Troop, in addition to the aforementioned OG Star Trek.
  18. Now, this is what they should put in the new Top Gun!
  19. Oh gosh, toys! =D My primary favourite back in the day were Star Wars, circa 1978-85. I had quite a few back in the day. I also enjoyed G.I. Joe and the Transformers. I also had lots of little spacemen and Army men. Legos were also fun, as well. I had some of the space sets of those. I used to run around in the woods with a branch fragment that just happened to roughly resemble a raygun, or phaser. Was just as fun as something store bought! I was also, and still am a big reader. According to my mum, I read encyclopedias as a wee one. The full fledged novelization of the orginal Star Wars, as well as the Black Hole and 2001: A Space Odyssey were my biggest favourites back in the day. Later on, a friend turned me on to the Hitch-Hiker's Guide books, and I enjoy them thoroughly! For shows I have enjoyed, there were the cartoons of the aforementioned G.I. Joe and Transformers. I also greatly enjoyed the 1970s Battlestar Galactica for my space kick, as well as the original Star Trek, which was allready in re-runs when I was little. I also enjoyed a lot of the 70s and 80s Saturday morning cartoons as well: Looney Toons, Tarzan, Fat Albert, Blackstar were the biggies, as well as Pac Man. Later on, I came to enjoy the A-Team, Knight Rider as well as the Next generation of Star Trek. For the 90s, I rather enjoyed My So-Called Life, and Space: Above and Beyond, as well as the Star Trek spin-offs that were about then. For movies, it's all about the original Star Wars and Star Treks, as well as Indiana Jones, and Back to the Future. The first two Alien movies are also fun, and I loved Transformers: the Movie. 1941 was a nice movie, as well as Stripes. I enoyed 2001: A Space Odyssey, as well as it's sequel 2010: the Year We Make Contact. Ghostbusters is also hella fun, as well as Monty Python and the Holy Grail. And, of course you have to mention a Disney movie or two. Mine would be the Black Hole, and the Cat from Outer Space. There's probably more I could think of, but that should be enough to unpack for now. *^_^*
