Dear Nico – ‘Shame, shame, shame’


Hello dear readers! It has been a while since my last contribution to this blog, my apologies. It’s not that I haven’t received any letters from you, on the contrary. My absence had to to with an unfortunate incident involving a scrub bucket, hair dye and a crossbow. I might get into that story some…

Cloven Forest – Magical!


Over the past years I’ve seen my share of forests in Second Life, but for some reason I can’t get enough of them. Specially when they are beautifully landscaped and have a touch of magic! Today I visited Cloven Forest, which is described in the land information as follows: A quiet calm and stillness will…

A Desert Canyon and how I lost my shape


Last week when logging in I got a disturbing notification. My shape could not be located in inventory and I rezzed like a n00b in some default form. Not a pretty sight I can tell you! Not panicked at that moment I cleared cache and logged back in into Second Life in an LL region,…

Planet Idun


The other week I explored Planet Idun, a Sci Fi jungle planet. Great for free form roleplay and photography. I took some pretty pics (if I may say so) and planned to return for some more exploring and information for a blogpost. So I did tonight, alas the region is closed, open only to certain…

White Binemust


Sunday evening, time to relax and prepare for another busy week. I’ve enjoyed White Binemust this evening before bed. A perfect serene, white world created by Bine Rodenberger. Have a great week! Slurl to Binemust

Golgothica, time to Elf up again!


I’ve spent so much time in all kinds of clubs and sims, that I almost forgot I’m an Elf! Not really, of course I know what I am. But yeah, it was time for some serious Elfing around and so I headed to Hera’s new sim: Golgothica. Hera (zee9.resident) is world-famous in Second Life for…

The Handmaiden Estate


While my country is in lockdown and now also has a curfew till at least 9 february, it’s a good thing we are able to travel the world in Second Life. I’ve done this for the past 13 years anyway, so in all fairness I do not feel all that much different with all the…

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…

Underwhere


“Art for arts sake, no real purpose beyond that” says Hera (zee9.resident) in her notecard, telling about Underwhere. Hera’s latest sim, or art installation as you will, is very different than her previous cities. If you are expecting a new Drune or something Cyberpunk, you will be disappointed. If you want to be amazed and…

SL17B : The Gift Boardwalk


Of all the amazing regions for Second Life’s 17th birthday, I wanted to highlight a rather unique one: The Gift Boardwalk! Yeah, that’s right: a boardwalk filled with kiosks that are filled with gifts. Stuff for free. Lots of stuff! Poses, hair, clothing, accesories..you name it. Oh and did I mention it is all for…
