Secret (?) Interview
Ciaran Laval has an interview with Xiola Linden that is well worth the time to read. See: The Mystery Of The Secret Interview With Xiola Linden
Loki has tried a new style of machinima. You can see it in his blog. This machinima is made in the anima style, something rare for SL. He did a good job. I’m impressed. It is short and, I think, corny. But, I think both were intended. Whatever the intent, it is cute.
Heard Around the VW
In response to a question of whether women are getting tired of over muscled male avatars…
“I ain’t “getting tired” of them. I been rolling my eyes at them since I joined SL. It’s a form of over compensation, I’m sure of it. The Hulk Manchunk avatar is right up there with Boobzilla Frankenbarbie when it comes to weeding out people with zero personality. =^-^=” – Imnotgoing Sideways
I love the name/term: Boobzilla Frankenbarbie.
Invisible Avatar Bug
BUG-8769 – Avatar does not load up some times. In viewer Second Life 3.7.26 (299610) Mar 5 2015 – RC Maintenance version, this is a known bug. You can relog to clear it.
To stay away from the bug bites, change to another RC viewer or the Main viewer.
I’ve seen this cave before. But, it is too good not to share again and the video via a drone is new.
The beta testers are talking a bit about what is going on with those tools. It seems they are testing grid wide Experience Keys, Parcel Experience Permissions, Estate Experience Permissions (I’m thinking multi-region but short of grid wide), and some measure of free Experience Keys for Premium members. No one is sure exactly what the Lindens have in mind or how it all fits together or what is in Phase I and to be in Phase II.
Lindal Kidd has an article up titled Kinky Pixels. It is about sex in the virtual world… more precisely the types available in our strange as life world.
If you think you are sexually free and have a good knowledge of sex… test what you know against Lindal’s list of kink in Second Life. I was totally mistaken about what FinDom is… I keep seeing it as F E M when it is F I N.
And there are a couple that are just WAY out of my reach. As Lindal describes them, “Ewwwww!”
