New World Notes: Donate to Help Children of the Late SLer Brandy Maltas

Ham Au at New World Notes passes on a Facebook post from Seth Regan, seeking donations for the family of Brandy Maltas.  Brandy is another Resident who has recently died of cancer (why is it that cancer has such a high rate of incidence among Second Lifers?), and her children are in straitened means.  You will find a link to Seth’s PayPal account at both links above, if you wish to add to the fund; I’ve put in a contribution just before publishing this.

Project Bento User Group update 14 with audio

Bento is getting closer to being available, though it’ll be a while before the clients start catching up with its capabilities. If you find someone selling a Bento shape, be aware that you’ll look oddball to anyone without a Bento viewer. Although photos of yourself will look good

You wouldn’t believe the tussle I had between finding this on social media on my phone, and trying to get it pulled up on the desk computer so I could give Teyara a little more publicity.  But I finally pulled it off.  I love, love, love this mask and lipstick and hair and everything I see here!!!  I’ll make sure to bookmark this blog, so I can see more of her stuff.

It’s Super Tuesday! – StrawberrySingh.com

For us Americans, it’s ‘Super Tuesday’ today. ‘Super Tuesday’ is the unofficial name for a Tuesday (March 1st this year) during the US Presidential Primary election when the largest number of states hold their primaries or caucuses. These are the States participating today: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Vermont and Virginia for […]

(From Harper:)  As of this writing time, you still have the chance to in most, if not all, of the states today.  If you’re registered and you haven’t gone to the polls yet, get there now!  If nothing else, this gives us the right to bitch in the end.

Read the article for details; but it does state in there that the Lab promises SL2 won’t be a replacement for the original platform, that their commitment to the vintage Grid remains.

12 things to check BEFORE you publish your next Second Life blog post

Canary Beck’s list of things to do before you click “Submit” in the sidebar. I don’t do all of these things — as much because some of them are not necessary for my writing. Lately, though, I’ve thrown in some large PNG graphics; it probably slows down the loading on those articles, and so I’m swinging back to JPGs for in the blog, even for those with fast connections. (Multiple large files on a fast connection can be as bad as one large file on a slow connection.) Some things here for all of us writers to consider.

SL Blogger Support

Have you ever published a post only to remember a bunch of things you wish you’d done before pressing publish? I find that one of the most annoying things about blogging is knowing what to do, but forgetting to do it. As blogging gets more and more complicated however, it’s really tough to remember everything. Instead of wracking my unreliable brain before I hit the publish button (and inevitably missing something important), I now use a blog post PRE-publish checklist and a blog post POST-publish checklist for every blog post I write.

When I made these checklists, I thought it might be useful for other Second Life bloggers who would rather not have to remember every single little thing before they publish a post – and instead use a checklist to help them remember everything – and there is a lot!

So here is my 12-Point Pre-publish Blog Post Checklist. Bookmark this…

Paradise Lost – The Movie to open this September

Second Life is about more than fashion, than sex, than dancing and parties.  Second Life is about what you make it — completely and truly.  Fashion and pretty vistas are mostly my thing (especially because I don’t have the tools or time to do the creations I’d really like to attempt), but others have done far more creative work.  For instance, The Basilique Performing Arts Company has produced a movie, based on their very popular performance of Bunyan’s Paradise Lost.  You can find out lots of juicy details here, including how to win a shot at L$20,000 in a photo contest!

Bandana Day At Hair Fair 2015

Writing from Destin, Florida:

Copyright 2015 by Gidge Uriza.

Gidge Uriza sums it up rather nicely in her article at Its Only Fashion, which I link to for today’s big reblog.  Hair Fair every year gives us a chance to stock up on wigs for our already ready-to-explode Inventories, and I’m on of the thousands of avatars who loves to go there, fight the crowds when needed, and purchase what strikes my fancy.  But, if I could get in world today, I’d try to remember to take off my hair and wear some kind of bandanna — because Hair Fair every year is also to support and remember the kids who don’t have the beauty, luxury — or necessity — of hair in even Real Life.

Wigs for Kids exists for the purpose of supplying hair to children who, for various medical reasons, have little or no hair.  We as adults feel it when we have a “bad hair day,” and those of us who have undergone chemotherapy know how embarrassed we feel when we start having to cover our heads as the tufts of hair are falling out.  Children feel it even more, though; they’re at a stage of development where image is so much more important, where teasing can be cuttingly cruel, or where they just want to look like the others around them.  We remember these little ones on the final day of every Hair Fair by wearing a bandanna instead of the “hair” we normally sport.

Wigs for Kids helps these children reclaim their self-esteem.  But it ain’t cheap, not by a long shot.  The mission page at WfK tells us that each wig is custom designed, handmade from human hair, and the average cost is $1,800.  That’s U. S. dollars, people, not lindens.  You can gather from this that the organization needs all the help it can get, but in two different forms, not just one.

The obvious one is what Hair Fair is for.  If you haven’t been there yet, today is your last chance for the year; go find something that makes you look ravishing when you aren’t wearing your bandanna — you did get one of those, too, right?  They’re available in every Fair sim in a special shop, for donations of 50 or 100 lindens, chump change.  But buy some wigs for Second Life, and help by your purchase to buy some wigs for the kids.  Large numbers of the vendors will dedicate at least a percentage to Wigs for Kids from every purchase, and some of the designers sign over all their sales from the vendors during this fortnight to the cause.  Be generous, please.  And, if you somehow miss Hair Fair, or just decide not to go (silly girls and boys!), go to their site and give a direct donation.

But another way to help is to donate hair.  That’s a roger, RL hair.  Like I said above, the kids’ wigs are 100% human hair, no synthetics.  You have to get the hair somewhere.  The Web site also has an aid to finding a salon that will help harvest tails of hair from donors — a minimum of 12 straight inches; pull curly hair straight to be sure — for sending in to the organization.  You can find the details here.  My own family has done this in the past when we’ve had the length, and hope to again in the future.

It’s not a hairy thing to help out here; indeed, the good work here can only grow in length.  (Sorry, that’s the best I can do writing fast here.  Any road, please help out.  And remember Hair Fair next year as well!)
