  1. I don't socialise in RL, as I interact with a lot of people through work, and need the rest of my time to build up energy for the next day. Thus, my SL friends "win", I guess. :matte-motes-big-grin:

  3. Made this pic a while ago, last pic is still the current, with exception of various costumes I tend to wear until they get smelly

Espically when it comes to variety. What sort of male clothing are you tired of seeing being made for males? What types of clothing do you wish there was more of for the guys? I'm tired of abs .. on EVERYTHING! Seriously.. it looks ridicolous. Ok, maybe extra so since I am a kid avatar, but even when in my adult avatar, I don't need abs showing on top of a regular sweater. Oh and also, pecs? Stop it. I'm so sick of finding an awesome top that has pecs that look more like a serious case of the man-boobs. Do not want. As for clothing I want to see more of.. I can't currently think of any. I usually find what I want, and have my selection of favourite stores.
  5. Oh lol yeah I should have specified, my avatar isn't much to go on either I was looking for the men's shoes, so thanks a bunch! :matte-motes-bashful-cute-2:
  6. I'm looking for shoes like the ones used in this pic here. Anyone have suggestions? :D
  7. My first SL account got the name Darion because I always loved the name Dorian... and it was taken I picked a last name that sounded Scandinavian due to feeling slightly patrioyic at the time or something. When I made this account, I liked Twine, because I planned to be a short fellah and that name just seemed to fit with that. I originally thought I might have fun switching between a female and male avatar so I looked for a unisex name that sounded well with it. I stayed a boy though. Not sure what I was thinking at the time.
  8. Griffin Ceawlin wrote: http://www.gaylifestyle.info/ Oh yes, this. Personally I live the "single and spending too much time on the computer"-lifestyle. Not sure if that counts as an alternative lifestyle or not.

Being short, skinny or having a flat chest does not mean you're a kid. PS: Children including fake ones should be banned from the internet. Oh shoot, I thought I was an SL kid all this time, but apparently I was wrong!

And here's the kicker, the first day it was a subte smile, then it evolved into a huge grin. I sometimes make faces on purpose too though.
  11. When I'm in a shopping mood, I often browse the Men's Department flickr group. Good inspiration and ever so often I am reminded of good stores, or discover new ones.
  12. The majority of the region where I live was up for sale a while back. I got me a sliver for more prims, wish I could afford all of it. Currently it sits empty, I think the owners are setting up in the sky.. I've been lucky for the years I have owned land in that region though, the previous owners kept the land nice.
  13. Adult here, and it hasn't changed my SL one bit, regardless of whether I am in grown up or child avatar.
  14. For costumes and stuff. Fortunately for me, I can make due with modding Eloh templates though (love those). (Of course, you don't really get far with a skin that has modify permissions inworld anywhoo...)
  15. Thanks, I'll give those a try. While my computer is all new and shiny, it probably isn't optimal for this kinda thing, but I can at least try and get as close as possible.
  16. Yeah, and it's those tweakings I'm clueless about..
  17. Thanks for the reply, although you lost me at "h264"... Ok so I googled, and apparently the V7 equivalent of that was to be "MainConcept AVC/AAC" (?) I tested that and the quality was horrid. :matte-motes-not-entertained: I either got that completely wrong, or maybe I'm missing a plugin of sort? If I do stick with wmv for now, what should seconds per key frame be? I keep wondering if there are some simple settings I forget paying attantion to that might improve the quality...
  18. First let me say a little about my knowledge level when it comes to video: Yeah that was pretty much it. :matte-motes-bashful: So to the question: I'm trying to figure out how to get the best quality for uploading to youtube - with what I have. Not looking to make any fancy videos, but if I do play around with it, I want a decent quality on it. I use fraps for recording and Vegas 7 for editing and rendering. (The raw file from fraps looks awesome of course. :p ) So, I have figured out that the best file format is probably wmv, but I'm sure there are other settings I need to pay attention to under template, I just have no idea what they should be for the best result. The finished quality when uploaded makes me wanna bang my head on my desk. (Mainly talking about when there is movement, like walking around etc.) For reference I'm adding two test videos, the first was rendered in mpg2, the second in wmv. My graphics card is MSI GeForce GTX 560Ti 1GB. 
  19. "Teen on maingrid" works well, and they react quickly. And yes, they really should update those categories.
  20. Well, I started out as an alt, so I was handed a tiny allowance and a couple landmarks on day one. Started out with a freebie skin and bought me some hair. In the beginning I aimed for "short guy", but I kept shrinking.. Since I couldn't find a skin I felt was suitable for a kid, I used a zombie skin and then went neko for a long while. I haven't changed all that much since I got the human skin, apart new hair and tweaking the shape (I still go cheetah sometimes). I don't have any pics of the evolution of my adult look (apart from day 1), which is a shame. God I had an awkward phase a couple of years back. Now I look like this.

  22. Well, the latest avatar I pieced together (retextured and modded mainly) was this one: And here is my avy pic:
  23. I am an introvert. Being around people exhausts me mentally. Health issues drain me of physical energy, I can go full speed ahead at work, but after that I am depleted. After my workday, where I have to interact with a lot of people, I am happy not to set eyes on another person. Before SL, I passed my time with tv and the web. When SL came along, I found a way to actually socialize but on my own terms. If I feel like chatting, I can do so, and remove myself from the situation the second I have reached my limit. I can make crappy stuff for fun, or I can listen to tunes inworld and keep half an eye on local chat while I surf the web or watch Dr Who/Fringe/Modern Family/What have you. Basically, it keeps me entertained and more socially active than I was before. Also, there are some very nice people here. The people in the tv just ignore me.
  24. This is my standard work outfit. Jeans, graphic tee, and if chilly - a hoodie. (Today was a warm day.. ) Surroundings in the pic do not reflect my work - although I do spend part of the day outdoors.
