I Met Dr. Phil in Second Life!

Mr. Draxtor Despres asks me to help him out from time to time with certain projects he has going on. Recently he messaged me to help him with locations so he can show a celebrity around Second Life. That celebrity was none other than Dr. Phil himself. His avatar even looks like him, don’t you […] The post I Met Dr. Phil in Second Life! by Strawberry Singh appeared first on StrawberrySingh.com.

We Can Wear More Than Five Layers Now!

I needed a photo for this post and I had this extra one from SL12B. (Dreaming of Dragons by ash3rah throne) 
Apparently the real news in the blog post I did earlier today was not adding vs wearing. It is that now we can wear more than 5 layers of any type, up to a total of 60 at once. That's system clothing layers, tattoo layers and alpha layers. 

Linden Lab apparently lifted the limit, but no one in the entire organization realized how big this news was. This should have been the entire theme of SL12B! There should have been a press conference! And a LL photo contest! And a commemorative Linden bear! Since I hadn't heard about it, I assumed that everyone knew already and I was late to the party.  

In conclusion, Linden Lab is still clueless about the community wants and needs and about communicating with us. But at least they stumbled upon this nice improvement. 

Quick - someone check to see if we can have last names again!

What Second Life Means to Me

To celebrate Second Life’s 12th birthday Linden Lab has introduced a video share project called “What Second Life Means to Me” in which they have asked some Second Life residents, as well as some Lindens themselves, what Second Life means to them. I was very happy and nervous when I was asked to be a part of […] The post What Second Life Means to Me by Strawberry Singh appeared first on StrawberrySingh.com.

Visiting the Moonbase: What to Pack

The first time I went to Moonbase, I didn't wear a costume and it was nice. The next time I went, I dressed up as an astronaut and it was a blast. Coincidence? Nope.

Have you been to the Moonbase? You have to go. But before you go I have some packing tips for you. You can pack lightly, but be certain to bring: 

Moonbase is very detailed and looks great. I absolutely recommend that you go explore and take cool pictures. In fact, I need to you go there and explore so that you can figure out how to get inside the buildings and tell me how you did it. 

No matter what I tried, I couldn't get inside the buildings. You would expect that you would be able to get inside and stay a while (The change of underwear is for a longer visit.) because the inside of the buildings are really intricate. I found chairs, a locker/changing room, and buttons to click that actually do things inside the buildings.… Read the rest

X is the Loneliest Number

Sometimes you just have to embrace the quirks of SL. Even when it might affect your bowing game. I'm not going to blame the lack of mesh ball return machines or the blinding neon for my poor game, but I am not going to blame myself either.

Do you know what makes regular prims and neon decor look better? Black and white photography. Consider that another SLife Hack from me to you.

I ended up here at the Land of Giants bowling alley after glancing at the SL events calendar and finding a bowling tournament. I was desperate to find something to do besides shop and explore. I like bowling as much as the next person and I thought it might be a chance to meet some new people. 
I got all dressed in bowling shoes and everything, but no one was there!!  I didn't want to bowl alone, but I did because no one on my entire friends list was in-world. (That just goes to show why I need to meet new people, yes?)
The Land of Giants is an interesting place. If you ever had the chance to visit Greenies when it was around, then you'll understand when I say that this place might have been inspiration for it.… Read the rest

Common Woes

Jiminy Christmas, how difficult is it to get a common out of this damn gacha machine?? I don't even really want these shoes anymore at this point. I will probably just rage wear the pair I want if I ever even wear them at all. 

I will trade 4 pairs of the Shiny Shabby event Eclipse oxfords for one pair: I'll give you a black common oxford shoe, a vinaccia common, a brown common oxford, and an oxford plateau brown RARE from Eclipse in exchange for one pair of white (or is it gray?) common oxford shoes. In fact, I'll give you several of the black commons; you can pass them out to your friends and start a shoe gang. 

While I  wait to hear back from someone who wants to trade, I will just lie here and think about how ridiculous my SLife has become.

Linden Lab’s Photo Booth Contest

Linden Lab announced a new contest yesterday that they will be running throughout the month of February. The Photo Booth Fun Contest encourages residents to share silly photo booth style images for a chance to win some linden dollar prizes totaling L$19,000! Unlike previous Lab contests, this time the winners will be chosen by a […] The post Linden Lab’s Photo Booth Contest by Strawberry Singh appeared first on StrawberrySingh.com.

Fat Tuesday at Lauren’s Place

People decided to dress up for Fat Tuesday for Lauren Weyland's comedy show last night. That's me toward the right, in pasties and a purple feathered mask, half hidden by selfie-taker and comedian Bubblepop Unplugged. I'd originally dressed in a much more conservative outfit - a purple and green tank top and skirt. When they asked me to get more risque, I obliged. Which means, sadly, that if you want me to take off some clothes, just ask. 

When lag made it difficult to find my sequined bikini bottoms, I dashed behind the bar at the club (really) to hide from cameras (or at least make it slightly more challenging for people to cam over and see my bits) until they rezzed. Thank heaven I hadn't trashed my old Mardi Gras outfits - I came close to it today while sorting inventory.  

We decided that since we all looked so festive, we'd get a group picture before the show. That's when Bubblepop decided to get in on the action.… Read the rest

Oh, Sileny

This is what the SL community has come to. Just two days into gatcha trading insanity, I found my friend, Sileny Noel, hovering over the gutter at a yard sale. 

I was nice: I poked her and asked if she was ok. Happily, she was both OK and too disoriented to protest when I told her I needed to get a picture. Apparently, she had ended up in that position somehow and decided to just go with it. That is why I like her - she's making SLemonade out of SLemons.

I couldn't think of any other first aid I could render except for checking for her wallet. For insurance information! Of course, if you've seen my gatcha trading list, you wouldn't blame me for looking for cash, too. 

Really? You can't see anything I'm wearing any way. Ok. Fine. Hair - D!va, Mayumi3 (Type B); Romper - MIMI NOIRE, Playsuit, mint glade; Shoes - *CASHMERE*, Cassidy Heel, mud

In RL, I Would Have Cried

As you can tell by by my clever disguise, I had been planning on doing a post about robbing that bank right behind me in order to fund my Second Life shopping. Of course, this is a role play sim and I would only be role playing the robbery. Then, I will actually mug my typist for cold hard cash.

However, something derailed my SLife of crime. SLociety can breathe a sigh of relief that this happened while I was posing for pre-robbery photos:

[19:41] Random person: hi
[19:41] Tymmerie Thorne-Darwin: Hi :-) 
[19:41] Random person: are you pregnant
[19:41] Tymmerie Thorne-Darwin: No. But TY for asking. I think.
[19:41] Random person: oh lol sorry it just that you looked like you had a cute lil baby bump 

Well. I guess I won't be wearing this dress ever again.

Save a Prayer

I'm here at the First Church of Rosedale because I have some things I'd like to have happen, so I thought a prayer or two might yield some results. 

I'm going to be praying for creators stop putting cats on everything. Also, I hope that creators are inspired to make more medium length hair and that their hearts are turned away from the evils of middle parts. 

I'll pray for some skilled creators to make mesh King Cakes because Mardi Gras is coming up soon and I only have one from RC Cluster that is no longer for sale and if Jerremy and I eat the whole thing this year, I won't have one for next.

I also hope to be showered with the blessings of rare items from gatcha machines and for my $Lindens to be fruitful and multiply.

I'm not just praying for stuff for me, either! That would be selfish! I'm also going to pray for all of the cross eyed avatars I see on the blog feeds to be healed from their affliction. Finally, I'll ask for miracles for the poor, broken-ankled avatars in hopes that they are blessed with "boot fixers." 

So here goes:

Dear Ebbe2sexy4U1962

So, ummm... why does Ebbe get a last name? I call foul. He should be Ebbe2sexy4U1962 Resident. If not, give us back last names, dammmmmmit! Umm. I mean, "please." 

Obviously, if they can accommodate Ebbe Linden and provide a last name, there is still something about SL's technical guts that allows last names. His shiny, new last name is a big, neon reminder that last names are indeed valuable - but that we (the paying customers and future paying customers) are not valued enough by Linden Lab to have access to them. 

So, I made a little something for him. And, I wrote him a letter:
Dear Ebbe2sexy4U1962;
Please let us have last names again. As the new guy, you have a unique opportunity to do something positive and significant right off the bat by restoring something that was unique to our world. 
Back when we all had last names, the clever and fanciful pools of last names helped people come up with a name for an avatar. Now, the process of starting SL is more difficult: since there can't be more than one Bob or BillySue or Ebbe2sexy4U1962, new players have to go through the frustration of trying to think up a name that's not already taken. That's easily solved with surnames.

Does this restaurant make me look fat?

I've been trying to pay more attention to what I eat in RL because I threw caution to the wind over the holidays. Since I don't have handy dandy shape sliders in RL, I need to be careful. So, when I ran across a place called the Reality Check cafe, I decided to see if it could give me ideas for getting back into fighting shape. Apparently, it's a restaurant where you select a meal and then learn how long it would take you to burn off the calories from that meal. 

When I visited, it was a steak restaurant (apparently it varies). Perfect! I love steak. I ordered a lettuce wedge with blue cheese, a rib eye steak and coffee. Then, since I love a good role play, I RP'd asking the waiter to take the invisible bread basket off of the table and bring me some stevia for my coffee - because I decided to RP low-carbing

After my meal, as I exited the restaurant, I was instructed by the Reality Cafe gods to leave and walk directly across the street to the Avatar Fitness Health Club!… Read the rest

People Person

Do you ever have those days where you want to be around people, but you are too shy to IM people on your friends list? I'd feel bad if I interrupted someone who was busy doing various perverted and/or depraved things that required their full concentration - something I always assume about my entire friends list just to be on the safe side.  

That was me this week. Therefore, my shy self has been reduced to hanging out at the Mingle game sim (Mingle Start Location) and helping people with tasks so they can complete the game and get the fabulous prizes. Am I nice for doing that or am I just creepy? Wait! Don't answer that.  

I ended up with several J tattoos (For my love, Jerremy.), about a billion Valentine cards, much improved virtual mini-golf skills, and the prizes from when I did the game the first time for myself. When Mingle ends, I'll go back to doing my low-risk socializing by exploring, hanging out at the occasional welcome/help center, and by keeping Plurk open. 

What do you do when you get the urge to be around people?… Read the rest

Blocky Has Some Questions

The lovely and talented Strawberry Singh put forth a challenge to find someone to interview us and then write about that interview. I haven't done a challenge from her in a while and this one seemed fun. I wasn't sure who would want to interview me, but then my prim son Blocky volunteered in lieu of nap time, so I let him do it. Here is the interview:

Me: Oh! Wook at Mommy's widdle investigative weeporter! Blocky: mmmmmmmmmm bbbppppptt? Me: Great question. It's actually pretty easy to juggle being a pretend prim mommy with blogging because I don't take you out of my inventory all that often. Blocky: mwwwwahhhh pffffffffffffffffftttt?  Me: Well, mostly because it's not easy to find a babysitter. And between running Thorne Industries, shopping, exploring, doing hunts and spending time with your daddy, we'd need a sitter all the time. Besides, unlike a babysitter, an inventory folder is free. So there you go!  Blocky: bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbtttttttttttttttttttttfffffffff?… Read the rest

Pre-Game Preparations

Almost there! I made it to New York and I'm slowly making my way to the Superbowl game in New Jersey. I heard that there'll be some pre-game festivities in Times Square, so I'm going there first. 

The first thing I noticed when I arrived was all of the oxygen. Lordy. I feel super-human at sea level. I think our team will benefit from the lower altitude. But here's a tip: don't breathe too deeply in the subway. I learned that the hard way.

After several weeks of wearing various orange and blue cheer costumes, I was starting to run out of them. But luckily, the lovely and talented creator Lexi Morgan, owner of the shop Stellar, read my Plurk pleas for mesh cheer outfits and she made some - just in time for the Superbowl this weekend! There are ten color combinations - including some matching the Denver Broncos' and the Seattle Seahawks' team colors. They come with matching mesh pompons, too. Check her blog for a quick look at all of the color combinations. 

Since I am already dressed for the big game, I'll bet you're wondering what's in my suitcase.… Read the rest

A Cheerific Time at Lauren’s! UPDATED!!!

This is a just a quick post to show off a picture! This is the lovely and extremely talented Lauren Weyland posing with me before the pre-Superbowl Lauren & Friends comedy show Tuesday night. I performed and I'll link to the video of the show when it gets posted. The other comedians were awesome, as usual!

I love the way Lauren decorated the stage for the show. It went perfectly with our outfits. We didn't even call each other beforehand to plan what we would wear! However, I should have taken the opportunity to challenge her to a Bring It On style cheer battle. (Next time, Lauren, next time.)

UPDATED! Here are videos of the performances:

Radiant SLorchid

Apparently, Radiant Orchid is the Pantone color of the year for 2014. And we are almost a month into the new year, I have failed at Radiant Orchid-ing.

I didn't remember that particular crayon, so I had to do a little research. What I came to realize is that Radiant Orchid (RO) just seems like the kind of color you'd get tired of quickly. Like purrrrrrple. But not like puuuuuuuurple. But it's pink.

Now, I know that some people will say that RO is purple. But, I would tell those people that they are wrong.* I would even tell Barney the Dinosaur that he is wrong. And Americans would never sing "Radiant Orchid mountain majesties...", right? Exactly! Because mountains are not pink.  

I actually found and bought a Radiant Orchid texture set in SL. It was the first and only thing in search. I was actually pretty shocked that anything showed up at all! I used the textures to make the box I am sitting on up there in the top picture.

I have mostly failed RO-ing because my hometown Denver Broncos football team is doing so well this year.… Read the rest

Gimmee a J-A-I-L!

The whole media world was very excited about Justin Bieber getting arrested in Florida yesterday, when they really should have been much more excited about the fact that there are now cookie dough flavored Oreos

Anyway, I thought I would go visit JB in jail and give him a piece of my mind, but he had bonded out by the time I got there. No worries. In my cheer outfit, I am inspired to make up cheers for any situation, so I made one for him. Here it is:

Hey there, Justin! Have you heard?You're not above the law! That's the word!
We doubt that those were Smarties that you snorted!Get yourself together or get yourself deported!
Rehab's the greatest! No doubt about it!Talk to Ke$ha! She'll tell ya' all about it!
Don't become a has-been!Go! Fight! Win!
Well, that's why I only cheered for one year. Good thing I still looked cute cheering it at the SL jail I found. I think my SL cheer costuming has been going well so far in the run up to the Superbowl.… Read the rest

I’m back… and promoting One Voice

I've had to take a break from Second Life for a few months, in order to concentrate on getting my RL health back on track.

I was slowly easing my way back into my Second Life this month, when I heard about a disturbing situation regarding a copyright infringement dispute involving skin designer Gala Phoenix of Curio:

Curio's Gala Phoenix is currently in the midst of legal issues which have resulted in her content being removed from the grid, pending the outcome of her legal battle. The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) process in Second Life requires that when there is legal action taken against your content, Linden Lab will remove it from the grid until a ruling is made. Gala's fellow content creators have come together to host a fundraiser to help with the substantial legal costs she will incur in contesting these baseless claims.

This fundraiser, One Voice, is currently underway on the Mesh sim, and runs through July 22.

I've decided to contribute four outfits to the event.… Read the rest
