In the Hamptons   Leave a comment

From you have I been absent in the spring,
When proud-pied April, dressed in all his trim,
Hath put a spirit of youth in everything,
That heavy Saturn laughed and leaped with him,

Dun dun DUNNNN….! Ok, not really debunking! Frankly bakes on mesh is going to be great. I’m a HUGE fan. You’ll finally be able to wear as many tattoos, moles, makeup and other body mods as you want! Skin makers will be able to give you tattoos that let you mix and match your facial features! Calorie Free Bacon will rain from the sky! Ok, not that last one.. but still some great stuff!

A good discussion from the masters of Omega Solutions on the eventual workings of the now legendary Bakes On Mesh project.  Designers give this a read to understand what’s happening … and what’s not.

Second Life Project BakesOnMesh – StrawberrySingh.com   Leave a comment

For me, this is a great reason to not throw away any tattoo makeup for now.  It’ll mean a heavier inventory, but if I can achieve the same layered makeup on my mesh heads as I did on the system heads, I’ll celebrate!

I love the fact that Linden Lab continues to work on new features to improve Second Life, even after 15 years! Recently they did a blog post, 15 Reasons to Celebrate Second Life, and number 14 on the list was Bakes on Mesh. BakesOnMesh is a new feature that has NOT hit the main viewer […]

French Waltz   Leave a comment

Well there won’t be no stars
Coming out in the sky
Tonight when my baby walks by
Oh they know that they can’t hold a
Candle to the look in his eyes

I haven’t been to Heth Haute Couture for a while, but I’m glad I stopped in recently for the current collection.  Hethwen Collinwood has put forth several fantastic pieces; both myself and Jem stocked up while we were there, in part for a storyboard series I’m working on.  There was also a men’s formal suit, so I sweet-talked Conan into posing with me when I learned of an upcoming event, and how I could put the gown to a second, better use.

I learned of this event while flipping through Facebook.  Blue Heart supports autism awareness, and seeks money to help fund work with the autistic.  Having known two young men on the spectrum for several years, and their needs, I can encourage you to support this group and its goals.  The Event itself will be held from May 17-22; there is also a party on Sunday, April 20, and a fashion show on Saturday, May 19, both at noon SLT.

“The enjoyment of scenery employs the mind without fatigue and yet exercises it; tranquilizes it and yet enlivens it; and thus, through the influence of the mind over the body gives the effect of refreshing rest and reinvigoration to the whole system.”

The woman reflected those words, written on a stone plaque near the entrance, as she strolled along the pathways of the park.  The thing, of course, was that there was much more space available in the 19th Century than in the 32nd.  This small “park” was contained inside a floating force bubble, and was not accessible to the groundlings who “lived” beneath the sky towers.  The woman shuddered at that memory; she had seen the ground levels in the past ….

Now why did that give her a cautionary twinge, as if she could just perceive the makings of a great catastrophe in the future …?  No, there was nothing to worry about; better to enjoy life to the fullest, and the future would deal with itself.

While, thousands of meters beneath her on the surface streets, the future simmered and roiled … and waited ….
