Quality of (second) life

Plurk, a micro-blogging service widely used by Second Life residents, is more known for the self-praising and occasional drama spurs than for its rational adult conversations. Yet, this morning, Kriss Lehmann, owner of Botanical...

Banish the gacha

It’s hard to say this because I know it’s a very popular practice in SL economy right now, but I’m sick of the gacha overdose we’re currently experimenting in this virtual world. There is...

Pergola 1

Nomad no more

I think I’ve finally found a cozy little corner in Mainland. I had to keep looking, almost everyday, for months, till I found this plot last weekend… by accident. You know that the SL map only...

Plane pot 1

Taro on a plane

A quick post: If you hurry up, you can still get these two nice terrarium pots for 50L at Kalopsia. They were released last Friday as part of the Fifty Linden Friday weekly event. Luckily...

Hot Summer 2 0

Seventh

What do I do (sometimes) when I’m bored and “unable” to do something about it? I check Strawberry Singh’s weekly challenges, but not because they are boring too, but because at least I can...

A year ago, Strawberry Singh came up with the “Why do I blog?” meme, which I answered out of boredom. In the end I enjoyed it a lot, so that’s why I’m up to...

Automatic Horse Carriage 0

Of course… a carriage too

Of course: If AnnMarie Oleander/Otoole and Yavanna Llanfair can litter the SL road map with their cars and pods, why can’t AaronM Jenkins have his automated horse carriages too? So there he goes…

Summer is coming

While half the world is waiting for winter to really come –that’s the southern hemisphere, not the other half watching TV– northerners are heading for that time of the year when they pilgrimage to the sea,...

With neighbors like this…

Miliaco sim, Satori continent: There is a very nice parcel, almost perfectly flat land with direct access to a Linden road, that is going for cheap. Only L$2999 for 2496 sq.m. That’s about L$1.2/sq.m., a huge...
