REBLOG — This World Needs More Neighbors Like Mr Rogers   Leave a comment

John Pavlovitz

As I promised back in 2017, this blog wasn’t going to stay aloof from sensitive things in Real Life.  We do, however, pick and choose what we fasten on to for speaking on or republishing, which is why the political world hasn’t intruded as much as we might have.

However, this piece, written by John Pavlovitz, needs to be read, please.  If we remembered the core message of all Fred Rogers did, ignoring the surface hagiography that has accumulated since his death, and put those teachings into effect, we might not be in the state we’re in currently.

Please click through and read this.  They who have ears to hear, let them hear ….

I got to visit with an old neighborhood friend today. When I was a child, Fred Rogers always made me feel that his home was my home, and I gladly spent countless afternoons there learning and listening and dreaming. Sitting in a packed screening of Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, a much older, much more cynical… Continue Reading This World Needs More Neighbors Like Mr Rogers

Bakes on Mesh – a basic primer – Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World   Leave a comment

Monday, August 26th, 2019 saw the formal release of Bakes on Mesh (BoM) for Second Life, and with it, an attempt to make system wearables (skins, tattoo and clothing layers) usable on modern mesh a…

Inara has an excellent read for everyone who, as we are, will be experimenting with Bakes on Mesh.  I’m believing, from what we’ve tried so far, that it will be very similar to what we had before the rise of mesh heads and bodies, but with new channels added for some items.  This definitely brings back the ability to layer makeup … and makes me wish I’d hung on to some of my old tattoo packages, as well as old system clothes.

I can say that the old vendors of tattoo-level makeup will be getting fresh infusions of lindens into their accounts, as people start digging into the older depths of Avatar Components on the Marketplace.  Classic skin sellers, such as my old, reliable PXL, will get a fresh lease on their older products as well.

Check with your body and head providers, and see if they support BoM yet, either native or as a relay.  There’s much to learn here about glitches (such as “sparkle toes”), but I think it will pay in the end.

REBLOG — A Word About Blogging in Second Life – Magick Thoughts SL   2 comments

I reblog this article by AmandaMagick for your consideration.  This blog has always been willing to consider publicizing any items submitted to it by designers, provided we like them; but we have remained firmly independent in editorial policy, able to express our own preferences, not bound to pushing any particular product.  The trend of our fellow SL bloggers to hire themselves out is not a happy one to me.

Having said that, it’s the right of any other SL fashion blogger to sign up for such publicizing work.  Just be sure you read the agreement they’re asking you to comply with before you “sign” it.  Admittedly, it would be difficult to enforce such things in a court, yes.  But there’s a moral obligation to live by what you agreed to.

You know what grinds my gears? Rules that are ridiculous that’s what. I mean I understand stores in Second Life have rules for their bloggers to follow and rules they themselves follow in ter…

Announcing some Changes – I am now a Linden Lab Employee – StrawberrySingh.com

From Strawberry Singh:

There have been some changes in my real life that I wanted to share with you and be completely transparent about. I have been hired by Linden Lab as their …

This is going to be an exciting time for Berry.  We’ll miss her in the regular blogging trenches of Second Life, as I’ve already told her on her article; but I understand her feeling that, as an employee of the Lab now, she needs to put a firewall between roles.

As she notes in her article, please don’t contact her directly to solve any problems; that won’t work, and will load her down with unfulfillable requests.  File a normal ticket.  Be a nice avatar.
