Pooping Rainbow Bubbles

First a big Thank You to Mira who bravely fed my bunnies!

Secondly…I’M BÄCK! Well, I’m back for a week, but I was very busy getting back into old habits like spending ridiculous amounts of time in front of that evil machine and clearing up unread blogs, Plurk, Flickr, in-world messages.

My beloved two readers know I like sitting on my blogy fence (aha?) but the last few days even I felt an urge to say something….I’ll make it quick/short/not too blahy.

I like to scan WordPress for Second Life related blog posts through this feed. This gives me the occasional random post about SL by a non-SLer or a newbie which can be interesting, but lately (I don’t have to tell you, I hope) there were a lot of random blahs by non-SLers thanks to the beloved (ex-)couple. As I like to keep it short…erm…I’ll keep it short.

  1. Just because there’s one guy having a prostitute in a virtual world, this doesn’t mean that we all do it! Not anyone is into slex.
  2. Why is it so hard to understand how sex’s is happening in SL? Everybody of a certain age will have some understanding about phone-sex and won’t question how genitals could be squeezed through the wire. SL makes it possible to do that on different levels (voice, text and most of all visual).
  3. Get a life!, Get a hobby! and Reality check! is causing bad skin reactions on me. I have a life and so does everybody else enjoying SL. SL is a hobby for me, for others it’s a platform to escape their FL/RL, which I believe is a healthy thing as long as you don’t forget it’s your second life and not your first. Other people collect stamps or empty beer cans. I feel that those people (often mentioned on those look at those weirdos-posts) have a general allergy against computer-related hobbies.
  4. Whenever you read something about Second Life (Thanks media for picking up the bad stuff, who wants to read about creative, intelligent people?) how can you assume every resident/customer (harhar) is the same? I’m not “those people” or a “weirdo” just because that lovely couple shares a hobby with me.
  5. Has anyone of those weirdos understood the story in full? It seems to me “Second Life” “leggings” and “sex” causes the same instant reaction for many bloggers out there. Second Life has absolutely nothing to do with their inability to have a healthy relationship!
  6. I’m done…I think…I hope.

Fashion Blah from here!!!

This outfit is one of my favourites, something that I’d like to pick if I have to change quickly to something normal(ish). Both, top and pants are from beloved Twosome, which, as usual, come in 3000 layer-options so you could wear anything you like under the knitted vest…or over it. The top is available in different colours, the pants are only coming in blue, but in two versions (the other being more shiny). If you’re an angel like me *coughs* better wear some knickers under those pants, otherwise (depending on your skin) hair might be visible.

Since there wasn’t enough colour in it for me, I combined it with all time favourites: Hair from my very first hair-fat-pack (aww!) from Naughty, my usual flats from Periquita and the not for sale skin made by Tokoro on base of a Another Skin…er…skin.

Fur the full rainbow poop please click the pic! 🙂

  2. I agree as well with your blahs 🙂
    I wish us residents weren’t so stereotyped just b/c some people got in the news. It’s never the good stuff- like Wheelies and people who are disabled who use secondlife and it gives them new purpose.

    I guess it’s not newsworthy, though I think it’s more interesting news than virtual cheaters.

    Keep poopin rainbows! 🙂

  4. Hey Tarissa,

    It’s nice to have you back. I’m glad I kicked your arse so this lovely post could come to light 😉

    I kinda sorta agree with you on your first part of the post, and I kinda sorta I’m annoyed at the bad publicity… like you say enough of that blah!

    I’m not into SL fashion, BUT I gotta tell ya I like that skin A LOT, and because I’m into photography, I think you did a darn good job with the photos.

    Enough of that blah!
