  1. Well, I'm an idiot. There's no way I'll be ready to do this thing Friday. I have various other projects that need my attentio0n, plus I'm getting ready to take a vacay with my wife in just over a week. So I'll have to postpone. We can do it on a date after we get back, like mid-July maybe. Sorry!
  2. Houseboat Party! June 14, 6 PM SL / 9 pm EST I'll be spinning two hours of Caribbean vibes, ocean-inspired tunes and groovy electronica from the rooftop of my new Linden houseboat. Come dressed for the beach, or that fancy island resort you keep meaning to jet to every summer and bring a friend, significant other, random stranger or favorite snuggle-partner for an evening of music under the stars and by the waves. Afterward, there might be a late-night sail as well. Ahoy!
  3. Friday, 6 pm SLT @ The Listening Room A somewhat impromptu spin session comprised of "complex" music, which could include "complicated" music, "convoluted" music, "contorted" music and even "confused" music, a condition which was may all find ourselves in by the end of the night. If you've never been to The Listening Room, fear not; it's not a club and no one is encouraged to tip. No one is encouraged to dance, either, but people always do. 💃 The joint is open to anyone who wishes to attend. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Edloe/208/213/21
  4. Good gravy. Yeah, I may have an "event" or two coming up in the near future. I'll post something here if I do.
  5. And the overcoat would be a fursuit.* * Not that there's anything wrong with that.
  6. DM me, if I'm about I'll invite you over to the house with E. 😁
  7. /rant mode on Back when applications for performers for SL16B were announced, they specified a WIDE range of dates - over two weeks, if I remember correctly. My wife and I have a vacation already planned, so I chose dates before and after our trip, in the hopes at least one of them would fall within the celebration's timeframe. No. The confirmed dates for performances are 8 AM June 23 - midnight July 1, SL time. I will be away with my wife the entire time, and while I may be able to log on and enjoy the festivities as a guest, I will be unable to DJ whatsoever. The staff reached out to me "in the interest of fairness" to pick different dates and times to DJ, and I informed them that, because of this, I am unable to DJ at all. The birthday celebrations are the one SL community event I give a flying fiddle about. I've DJ'd the past 4 or 5 birthdays in a row and look forward to the event all year; the crowds are always great, I get compliments from both partygoers and staff on my sets, and everyone has a blast. "In the interest of fairness," they should ask for applications AFTER the dates for the celebration are cemented in place, not before. But that's just one llama's opinion. I'm going to go play RIFT and pout. /rant mode off
  8. Correction: HAD a Tumblr. My new address is: https://llamasbooks.wordpress.com/ This is just to make everyone aware that the previous link is dead.
  9. Indeed! I'm crap at texturing anything. I'm barely able to texture prims appropriately. So having to learn the whole AO and UV thing is on a learning curve. I'm going to use a pre-made mesh for the hardcovers, as I can't make anything with mesh at all yet. The texturing will be enough of a project on its own.
  10. I am in the process of replicating my real-world bookshelf in Second Life. This primarily consists of making prim books, but the hardcovers are going to require my (finally) learning how to use AO and UV maps for mesh objects. I'm taking the photos myself as much as possible, and am only doing the books I've actually read thus far. I have a Tumblr to detail the trials and tribulations, for whoever might be interested. https://llama-books.tumblr.com/
  11. Rioko! We're all good here, I think ... you logging on again?
  12. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who showed up for the 2nd set at the Hangout. A huge success! Lots of cool people, everyone liked the set and the props ... I had a great time, too. You guys are the best ♥
  13. Hi kids ... just a note (and I promise to make a full-fledged return to posting here because I don't want to come off like a nincompoop who only shows up to spam the forum) that I'm holding a music/dance thing on Friday, April 12, at the Cartel Hangout. Deets: April 12th. TWO sessions: one at Noon SL time (8 pm London) and one at 6 pm SL (9 pm New York City). Come to both! No one is checking passports. Theme: It's "The TV Set," two hours of music and mayhem revolving around the wonder/horror that is television. Requirements: bring your avatar, that'd be super helpful.
  14. Really! Color me uninformed. Thanks, Lil. I thought the tag would have been a requirement, like for rezzing objects, etc.
  15. I know ... the poor Europeans get left out of our North American evening shenanigans. I have actually given this some thought, because (in part) I don't really know how many active members we have that are European - or residing elsewhere, for that matter. I'll have to devise a poll or something to find out for the next event, which will be in about a month.
  16. The Cartel Alt Party is from 6-8pm SL time at the Hangout. The Hangout grounds will be set to "group only" at 5pm SL; wear your Cartel group tag to get in. / goes back to not posting in forums /
  17. A few things: 1. You have no privacy in Second Life. It's an illusion. Yes, you can set your parcel so that those outside the parcel cannot see you, and so your chat and even avatar sounds don't cross the boundary, but the minimap still shows you're there. If someone crosses into your parcel, even at great distances above or below you, you can be seen and heard. 2. There's no way to kick a player based on camera position - or at least, no way to kick a player off one parcel for caming in on another as far as my own scripting knowledge goes. But, in reality, you have no real way of knowing if someone IS camming into your parcel unless their viewer is set to broadcast that information. Furthermore, Residents can cam across server boundries, negating even a parcel function that DID work. Always assume someone can see your butt. 3. Orbs are inworld objects, and this is the help wanted forum. You don't hire an orb, you buy/script one.
  18. Actually, the "Wanted" forum would be a better bet. http://community.secondlife.com/t5/Wanted/bd-p/Wanted
  19. With all due respect, this is a public forum and we'll debate your employer's methods all we like. These other DJs make good points.
  20. It's still possible and is still done. You mght want to seek out Treet TV.
  21. I don't know if this is related - I suspect so - but several times today, upon being on sims that restart, I neither get a warning that the sim is about to restart, and I do not get kicked off the sim or tp'd home. I freeze in place (cannot move, cannot tp, cannot bring rezzed objects into edit), and shortly after I crash. Looking at those sims on the map, after I log back on at home ... the sim appears darker in color, meaning that it's offline I imagine, but I also see green dots of other avatars still on the sim. Other Residents stuck in place? Just an fyi.
  22. The way to make the most money in Second Life is to find a thing that you love doing well and do *that,* instead of working for someone else. Learn to build and create objects. Learn to script. Learn to DJ well, or create art. Open a place of your own on a G sim and draw your own crowds. What really pays well in SL is talent. Talent for business, art, music, entertaining, creating. Any of those areas will give you not only a measure of success here, they can also give you a measure of success outside of SL too. If you don't have those skills you'll have to learn them - but that's what makes the difference.
