Hasani Means Handsome!

I've always had a fascination with Egyptology. When I was living in Denver I had an opportunity to view the Ramses II exhibit and found it completely spellbinding. The advanced society of the Egyptians in the 13th century BC was beyond my imagination. And the beauty of the artifacts on display was breathtaking.

The most exciting adventure on my bucket list is a trip to the pyramids. But my bucket is currently collecting dust in the shed :( This is where SL comes in! I can visit the pyramids in a virtual world with a click and a tap. When I get there I want to meet a handsome and mysterious man who can teach me all about Egyptian culture and cart me off to the great pyramids of Giza. Hasani looks like just the man. Say iiti to Hasani!

Bonnie Knees – A Word on the Kilt
By Sredni Eel

The Bonnie Knees Contest is a real life event, where you line up a few kilted men and allow blindfolded women fondle the legs to determine who has the nicest knees. One of these days I may suggest such a contest to someone inworld just to see what would happen. There’s also a truism about the kilt; if you wear one you will always be asked if you’re wearing anything underneath it. This is, perhaps, why the contest always goes over well with the ladies.

The kilt has risen in popularity on the Grid over the past year or two. In the “old days” it was difficult to find a decent kilt and, in fact, the available kilts either did not have a real clan tartan associated with them, or the price was high enough to make any good Scot catch his breath and beat himself over the head with a rogue Haggis. Now you can get an inexpensive kilt in any tartan you wish.… Read the rest

Flattery gets you everywhere and CONTEST, people

Loooooooooooook!


Journey blogged the beach hut



Oh my that girl has flair. I need prims and I need 'em NOW.

Shamelessly stealing her photo but do look at the interior shots too. Wow.

She can take photos like a dream, including fashion shots that make me want to go spend Lindens I don't have. Take a look at her blog PrimGameProper in the sidebar because it's one to add to your must-read list:


Back to the contest though: read on




Here's a bit of the tree house which you can win by sending me (Ariadne Korda) a notecard in the next 2 days remember? Contest in yesterday's post and see both that and the beach hut and then get writing.



"Dear Ari I need your tree house / beach house to live in because I am a homeless elf / dreamer / beach bum and you are the greatest most fabulous most modest builder in SL"


That would do it.


Been meeting some great people recently I have to say, including Em Ellesmere of Sleek Home: also just added because (no not just because she blogged me) she's fun and also has a flair with decor.… Read the rest

Dubious Fun with the Dangerous Diving Board


Someone nailed this diving board together years ago and nobody has taken it down yet...

...so you and your friends can still risk life and limb like you do every year down at the old watering hole.  Climb on it, hang off of the end, sunbath on top, peer over the edge, pretend you are a hero, lean against it and look cool, suspend yourself upside down from the side... heck, you can even dive off the thing if you are really brave enough! There are ten different poses to choose from in the interactive menu, and you can get five avatars on it all at the same time!
This is a collaborative effort between the building skills of Weather! or not? and the posing imagination of HopScotch. It's only six prims, including the shadow, and features all original sculpting and pose work you won't find anywhere else. 
Get yours in-world at the Weather! or not? Main Store. Down by the water you'll find one already  rezzed to take a look at. Our collaborative partner, HopScotch, also has them for sale!… Read the rest

Keyboard adventures and Yet Another Beach Hut and it’s free, sort of

I don't really think it's worth saying 'sorry haven't blogged' after a couple of weeks' silence (well, unless my massive following of 8 need a rambling and bad photo fix really badly).

My laptop -  and main working tool  - died, see. No, this is not a plea to buy my stuff to help me replace it (unless you feel like buying about 6 million of my builds).

I was halfway through this (see below) when it happened.



Uh-huh. Yet another beach house: they seem to be all the rage in SL but I built this one for a friend who had a real one and sent me a photo of it. It's 19 prims plus 2 for the optional deck below. And sort of free this week at Vent du Sud - read on!

I should really box it and sell it with lots of breathless prose, right? (No blogging, little building = few sales and my Linden balance is almost as sick as my ex-Vaio). Not sure how much it should be but around 300L I think.

But breathless prose is hard for one particular reason: I have finally bitten the bullet and after decades (!) of touch typing on a Swiss (qwertz) keyboard have migrated to a French azerty one.… Read the rest

Cavernous Fountain


This Mod/Transfer, highly detailed natural decorative fountain is only 27 prims. Animated water is accented by particle splashes.

When the owner clicks on the base of the cavernous fountain, ambient sound is toggled on or off.

The cavernous fountain uses specially formatted particles that recalculate size, speed, radius, and other variables automatically when the entire object is scaled.

In other words, this is a modifiable object and unlike some particles you may have seen it will not break when you change the scale, just manually resize the entire fountain and after a second or two the particles will automatically be adjusted to match its new size.

I know this is a bit on the early side, but it'll give you plenty of time to put this on your calendar :)

The Society Club presents A Night of Great Tunes.  DJ Sredni Eel will be spinning all the best in goth and dance from the 80's, 90's and now!

Friday, August 27
6pm - 8pm

THRILL to My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult!  MARVEL at the Lords of Acid! Kick up your heels to David Bowie, Dr. Steel, Ministry, and KMFDM!  If that isn't enough, there will be some obscure New Wave songs to dance to.  Remember Celebrate the Nun?  Industry?  New Order?  Still unconvinced?  Let's play a round of Stump the DJ.  If the song you want cannot be played, you will win an exclusive prize from AVATAR BIZARRE!  Even if you prefer just to send your requests for the sake of hearing a song, all you have to do is whisper in the DJ's ear.

The Society Club is a  "Gentlemen's Club" with a Steampunk flavor.  Victorian, Edwardian, Formal and Steampunk attire are preferred, but we relax the rules for dances, so let's see what you've got!  This is an adult sim, so no child avatars allowed.  I'd love to see some of you at this event, because I love playing your requests.  You folks come up with some fun ones.… Read the rest

Fishing for boots at Avatar Bizarre

On 16th August 2010 · By Sredni Eel · With Leave a comment
In Avatar Bizarre, Second Life
I took the plunge and got my store a 7Seas fishing kit. If you're in the mood for a bit of fishing, with the possibility of dredging some exclusive boots or eyes from the Children's Wading Pool, head on over, grab a seat and a beer, and have at it.

If the shark scares you, there's fish in the barrel.

I'm sure you can catch stuff in there, too!

Here's one of the nifty things you might find swimming around in there:


These boots are not for sale in the store anywhere yet, so be the first to get them! Just to make that picture a liar, they're transfer while they're in the fishing pond, if you want to send them to a friend.
