Our web site was down. Somehow there was a virus in the database. Is that not the strangest thing? I don’t know if that would affect readers or not, but thankfully it’s been fixed.
I shot these pictures last week. I was still shocked by the Orwellian phrase “alternate facts” that in a healthy society would completely discredit the people who promote them. But, since people no longer distinguish between fact and opinion, alternate facts seem to be growing. Aldous Huxley, though, had the right idea. “Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”
Oh girls. I hoofed it across the expanse of the Hair Fair, walking into EACH AND EVERY booth and I’ve got to tell you, it’s just AMAZING this year.
I demo’d more than I’ve probably ever demo’d – in my pre “mesh head” life I never bothered, but I DO encourage it greatly now as some folks might not make to fit YOUR head and then you’ll be hosed. I highly recommend – if you have not done so, join the DEMO group where all the lovely designers send the demos!

This way, you can try out everything and make your shopping list and battle plans. Planning is key when we’re shopping! Continue reading →
Delta Bluesman Bukka White wrote the Fixin’ To Die Blues and later it was covered by Bob Dylan and by Dave Van Ronk. I thought about it yesterday when Second Life® had another auto-update that resulted in immediate crashes when I tried to take a picture. I thought they are fixing me right out of Second Life – each update and “improvement” making my experience more laggy and frustrating. And yes, I did all the requisite attempts to fix it including a clean install. I ended up installing an older update and crossing my fingers. For whatever reason, though, I cannot save a picture to disk without crashing, even in the older version now. The only way I can take pictures is uploading them directly to Flickr®. Oh well, here they are, raw shots that are not even cropped. The clothes are still gorgeous!
When I was camming around I accidentally cammed in on my face though the street light globe. I thought the effect was freaky and fun.
So this happened. I went to the CHAPTER FOUR because I saw a pic of a cute sweatshirt that FISHY STRAWBERRY had out, and I HAD TO HAVE IT. I’m all SL broke right now bcse QAVIMATOR went to hell but that’s a different story. So ANYWAY – had to have it, I had a cup of coffee barely touched, TP’d right in and went right to the shirts I wanted. YAY I saw the one I wanted, made my purchase and TP’d home, full of joy with my whimsical purchase.
Except I got dressed and it didn’t say what I wanted. I wanted the one that said MORE ISSUES THAN VOGUE. MINE DIDN’T SAY THAT !! I tried both colors. I gave up and shot them as is. And I sent FAE a note, saying OMG MY SHIRT IS WRONG /weeps.
Then I went to plurk and lamented my fate. Because obviously this is a tragedy. Continue reading →
Ever since they started the migration away from Magic Boxes, your Marketplace Shopping Experience has MOST LIKELY improved. I’m not saying you won’t find the freebie sex orb of dubious quality, or someone just selling a landmark for their shop for zero but hey at least it’s zero. I long for the days when people sold pine boxes and listed them as “a box for your stuff”. Those were heady days of online pixel shopping. Continue reading →
