Summer’s The Thing

Well I couldn’t resist taking some snaps as I wandered around SUMMERFEST this year. The layout is just adorable, with sweet vignettes set up and so while I wandered, shopped and ate my cotton candy I just couldn’t not contain my enthusiasm.

Is there ever an event that you always truly enjoy, yet struggle to remember? That’s me with Summerfest. It’s a nice layout, always lovely items and just a fantastic shopping experience but for some reason despite the fact that I’m thrilled when it arrives – more often than not it closes and there I sit, forlorn at having forgotten to go.

After the Doom

I come in to the settlements to get news or when it’s barter time, just to make an appearance.  It’s important not to be forgotten out here. Not that anyone would be likely to be helpful if there was help that was needed. It’s more about position, about who you are in the grand scheme of things.

I don’t barter.

I take what I want and everyone can just like it or not.  Mostly, I don’t take anything. No need to create friction, unless I just feel like having a fight. Mostly I don’t.

I come in to the main settlement every few weeks and wander around the perimeter. You never know what you’re going to find in the settlements, newcomers, oldbies with an axe to grind that’s as old as glitchpants, or calm. I am not here for trouble, just to learn what’s new, and to remind them I’m here.

I’m always here.  Continue reading

Last Day of Vacation Blues

I ordered room service last night and fell asleep without eating it. Nice, right? Luckily my all inclusive resort includes meals brought in, so I know there will be something waiting for me downstairs. I’ve missed breakfast though. This rainy weather just tells me to sleep and sleep, so I did.

Yes, it’s definitely lunch time.

I wonder how many people they think are here? Anyone want to come help me eat all this?

It’s a perfect day to relax and do a lot of nothing. I’ve got a good book and some delicious treats. I might even get some post cards sent out – like a proper vacationing adult might.  Continue reading

Wander Away To Tempura

Since it’s not vacation if you don’t put on a swimsuit and do something lovely I decided to spend some time on the waterfront at Tempura Island which just happens to be near the vacation house I’m renting. Convenient, isn’t it? I thought so.

Tempura Island has been here for 10 years,  can you believe it? It’s one of my favorite places for photos, and I was reminded of that today wandering the grounds. It reminds me so much of why Second Life can be such an effective escape for a little while, so much beauty is all around us and in so many forms. It’s a wonder. Continue reading

Magical Forests and Comfortable Boots

I decided to take a hike for my Saturday afternoon activity. CAN YOU BELIEVE that in an inventory of ALMOST 140k items I don’t own one single item called “hiking boots”?  I, like you dear reader, am incredulous of this fact yet here we are. I didn’t own a pair and since I was off on vacation and CLEARLY can’t just teleport to a shop to pick up a pair I had to make due with what I had in my suitcase inventory.

Luckily I had JUST thing thing from ISON – perfectly suited to protect my feet from nymphs or sprites or bugs or whatever it was that is currently inhabiting this place I’m staying for the weekend. Continue reading

There’s Magic Afoot – BakesOnMesh Magic

So yesterday I saw Sydd Sinister on FB talking about BakesOnMesh. She’s linked some info from Sasy and as I read long in the commentary something became incredibly clear.

MAGIC IS COMING.

If you’re old enough you remember when you could wear your jacket on the pants layer and it was a good idea because you needed the jacket layer for your tank top because your underwear layer was for you tattoo of a dying shark saying something in Japanese.

It was just a different kind of confusing, I promise you, we understood it. Then Mesh came along and saved us all and we saw the light and got rid of our clumpy cave man hands and feet and then our heads and finally our bodies and ALL THE THINGS and life was smooth and beautiful.

Apparently someone said “What if we could find a way to slap all those old system layers onto your mesh and make them look nice?” And someone else said “Yes let’s do that.”

I present to you GIDGE – Wearing her mesh with “System Layers” slapped on top. I’m wearing an old Pink Fuel Skin (Alyx), Izzie’s Lipgloss, and a shirt & jeans from Sn@tch. I’m also wearing some cute mesh shoes from ANE (Shoetopia) and some hair from Tableau Vivant.

Mesh meets History.

How does it work? Well you gotta have OMEGA appliers for the stuff you want to apply, and a special hud that makes it all work.

It’s THIS BAD BOY RIGHT HERE.

You also need the right project viewer. 

Get the one that is called BAKESONMESH Channel. That’s the right onw.

I struggled a bit because it’s my preference to just click around. 🙂 THAT’S HOW I ROLL. It tells you to do things like “remove your alpha” that your old body is now cloaked in. If you don’t – your mesh turns red.  THAT IS A BIT DISCONCERTING.

This is all still BETA. Sometimes my eyes are in the wrong place and kind of bug out. I suspect that’s to do with animations. My mouth looks kinda wrong like the system layer doesn’t sit on it right. AGAIN – BETA.  Last night I had some issues with my Mesh layers not going away properly.

However, all that being said – this is demonstrative that something huge is coming. What people will be able to do with this in  terms of creating is pretty interesting.

I hate my old eyelashes. They were THE BOMB back in the day though. Super cool.

Now. I’m gonna eat and put myself back into regular land.

Testing BakesOnMesh 1

Cajsa gifted me the BakesOnMesh Hud and I’m gonna enjoy playing with it some more. It will be fun to see what has stood the test of time!

Sing My Camel Song

So I’m a sucker for the silly things that RC Cluster makes, I always have been they are never things you NEED but there I am buying them up anyway. Much like “MUST” isn’t a word for princes, I find that “NEED” isn’t a word for SL.

For Fifty Linden Friday, that old Dinosaur weekly of awesome, she’s got out ROMANCE NOVELS.

Because, we need those right?

The answer is obviously, fuck yes we need them. Duh.

But this is where the fun starts.  I pop over there and plop down my 50L because I’m a grown avatar and spend my money where I want.  I look at the titles. Passionate Stranger, okay that’s par for the course. I bet he’s a rough type, with a heart of gold. The first time will be rapey but that will be ok because later when she falls in love she’ll forgive him. Right? That’s how these go I think. I’m pretty sure that’s it.

The next title is Down on the Farmhand, and I think we all know what that’s about. This time she’s got hinged heels. My mom used to say that all the time when referring to women of ill repute. Finally one day I asked her what that mean, “hinged heels”. My mother looked over her reading glasses and said to me in a calm voice, “She goes down easy.”

I’m still recovering from that conversation.

The next title though, nearly killed me.

“SING MY CAMEL SONG” – I was howling. I nearly ripped my SLINK body in two howling hysterically. SING MY CAMEL SONG? WHAT IS THIS ABOUT? Why do camels have a song? WATRUDOING REDD????? I was so confused and suddenly I desperately wanted to read this book.

Oh.

“Sing my CARNAL song”. OHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh well that makes more sense now doesn’t it?

I’m blonde. Let me alone. If I weren’t silly and wrong half the time I’d confuse the entire grid.

At least I’ve got my reading sorted for this evening!

 

CARNAL song. It’s CARNAL song.
