Kidaka Resort, our vacation in Second Life


Have you ever been on an all inclusive holiday in Second Life? I haven’t. Well until this week! Huck surprised me with a fancy vacation to a luxury resort, the Kidaka Resort, where he booked a lodge in the wilderness for us. He only told me to pack for ‘safari’ and to take some days…

STÖMOL, what a journey it was!


When Huck asked me to pose for a ‘short video clip he had in mind’, in February 2019, we could never have imagined it would turn out in a full feature-length movie complete with a private premiere, an interview in Second Life’s Live Talk-show ‘Lab Gab’ with Strawberry Linden, and interview in Eclipse Magazine ánd…

Voice-acting in a Second Life movie


When talking to Strawberry Linden in last week’s Lab Gab one of the questions was about the voice acting in STÖMOL and if we hired actors for that. The past year, when I told friends about what we were doing, this question also came up a few times ‘how do you film speech?’ Well, we…

Our talk at Lab Gab and a BIG STÖMOL event next week!


This evening Huckleberry Hax and I were invited to Second Life’s Live Talkshow ‘Lab Gab’, to talk about STÖMOL with Strawberry Linden.

STÖMOL on Lab Gab, this friday!


There is a lot going on behind the scenes, in preparation to the premiere of STÖMOL! Besides getting ready for the premiere and getting the venue ready (not to mention sorting out my outfit and hair!), Huck and I are invited to Strawberry Linden’s weekly live talkshow ‘Lab Gab’ to talk about the movie! Yesterday…

STÖMOL merch (yes)

If you think this is bonkers then you’re probably right. But I’m feeling celebratory. After all, creating STÖMOL took up nearly 18 months of my life (ok, I did squeeze in the day job during that time and quite a bit of other stuff besides). And, when it comes…

Where everybody knows your name


(Advertorial) This week Dutchie came out with a new building: The Red Brick Café! The building is a Second Life house with 3 floors and a traditional Dutch clock gable or facade. It’s built as close to realistic size as possible, which makes stairs and ladders hard to navigate on. Therefore Dutchie added 4 teleporters…
