I think I ended up re-writing today’s “March Mesh Madness” article name at least seven times. Almost went with “The Adventures Of Invisi-boobs” but it was too long. I do now plan on using it for the name of my first feature film.
If I ever make one.
Before we can discuss today’s foray into the wild world of rezzing mesh I must first share with you the photo with which we shall stare at and discuss.
You have to love rezzing mesh! It cuts out the middle man of comedy and brings it straight to your eyeballs. I have absolutely no clue what I that means exactly but we’ll go with it anyways. This meshy mess of rezzing has brought us a lack of hair, shoes, and (if you haven’t noticed the GIANT BLANK SPOT!!) boobs. It’s almost like an invisible cloak titty top.
Yeah baby…I’m wearing my invisible titty top. You like what you can’t see?!!?!
I was at a very high traffic area where there was mesh not rezzing everywhere so I was never able to see exactly what was supposed to be in the boob/top area. I like to imagine that it was something really epic like a halter top with a nipple hanging out or something made of fine virtual leather. This is why I love virtual worlds. Everything tells a story. Even the things that don’t appear.
Go forth into the virtual world that is Second Life. Explore. Stare at mesh that hasn’t appeared yet. Have fun with life. Eat a cookie. Stop drop and roll.
I really should have named this article “No boobs. No Ass. No Service.”
I said last week that I am declaring the month of March to officially be “March Mesh Madness”. As to not confuse anyone I want to point out that this has nothing to do with Second Life fashion, shopping, or telling you the best mesh that is out there. I am actually dedicating this month to that point where you first rez into a place.
You know what I’m talking about you virtual world geeks you.
I know that I mentioned it quickly last week but I want to make it clear what we are talking about. A review if you would like to call it that. It is that moment where you get to an extremely crowded place in Second Life and not everything or everyone is rezzed in yet. Some people are gray while other people are half there. When someone has an avatar or is wearing pieces on an avatar that is comprised of mesh it doesn’t always rez right away.
Unless you’re using the ultimate power of the dark side, high shelf liquor, a killer internet connection, and the ghost of Steve Jobs.
That is what “March Mesh Madness” is all about. That weird moment where you see people who might be nothing but a stupid pair of lips or an eyeball. It makes us all laugh. With that laughter comes a time we need to share pictures of some of the greatest rez in mesh moments. It’s a quick moment in time that takes having your virtual camera ready to shoot. Here is today’s March Madness Mesh moment that completely sums up what I am trying to do this month.
I absolutely LOVE this example of mesh madness. Not only are we missing so many various body parts but it is also a great example in what “SLupidity” is. I mean, come on, after I was rezzed in perfectly that tattoo STILL looked like that. Who feels that it looks really good to walk out into the virtual public with a tattoo that looks like a cross between a painting that got wet and some sort of weird stain? To each his own but, holy shit, you’ve got something on your side that looks diseased. You might consider having a doctor check you out. You know. Just to be safe.
I would like to point out that I absolutely love mesh. I am actually one of those people who are glad it came to the grid. I have been able to have such an easier time decorating lands and finding builds that not only not impact my land when it comes to what I can put out but actually doesn’t look like absolute shit. I also think the clothing looks extremely good compared to the system crap we use to have. It also looks EXCELLENT when it hasn’t rezzed in yet. You know who you are you boobless, hairless, messes.
So…here’s to the March Mesh Madness. May the body parts be missing. The humor be plenty. And the sarcasm be super thick.
Definition Of SLupidity: Word created by “Tipsy” Cerulean
Something insanely stupid that can be found on Second Life. Something that makes your head sometimes hit your desk in awe.
“Having a tattoo that is a cross between melted crayon wax and binge drinking vomit is completely SLupid.”
The month of March starts tomorrow and I was trying to think of a great theme to go with the month. After much thought (and sifting through various photos I’ve taken) I’ve officially declared March to be “March Mesh Madness”!!!
I’m not talking about dedicating a month to mesh fashion or even shopping for mesh. I’m talking about those moments when you rezz into a place filled with individuals wearing nothing but mesh. Before everything comes in clearly you see people who are nothing but hair, or an arm. Those funny moments where you can’t help but giggle as their expensive outfits (and we can’t forget those damn mesh boobs/feet/hands) are not appearing as of yet. I dedicate this month to you Mesh Warrior.
OK. Actually I just wanted to giggle at stupid pictures.
As I run into great opportunities of non-rezzed half mesh individuals I shall share my pictures. May we go through March not wiser but at least laughing.
Valentine’s Day may be over but I still said that the month of February was “Luuuuv Month”. To continue with our theme we cannot ignore the blaring fact that the internet is for porn.
Who doesn’t love porn?
When you look up the keyword “love” when using Second Life search you end up with a lot of porn. No. I’m not just using the word “porn” to describe the adult areas of Second Life. Actually areas that just use the word “porn” in their description.
I’ll say this again. Who doesn’t love porn?
Sex is sex and most everyone wouldn’t mind getting some. When it comes to Second Life you cannot not overlook the fact that it is deeply rooted in sex. From the escorts of yor to the free sex areas that are still around to this day. Like you cannot forget that the internet has porn you cannot skip over the fact that Second Life does too.
I had to change out of my regular avatar to go forth into the sordid world of virtual sex. I really don’t think that people would appreciate me showing up to write about things dressed like a sea otter. I was going to give you a few reviews on various sex places on SL but, in all honesty, I got tired of the “Hey baby! Why don’t you come over here and we’ll simulate the nasty.” come on lines. I am also not into “doing it” on Second Life. It’s not my cup of tea. This always makes for interesting reviews when I go forth into an adult area. Amazingly enough this is a pretty positive review today. If you’re into the whole virtual worlds sex thing then I hope this helps you find a new place to hang out.
I ended up checking out Emmanuelle’s Island Of Love (A) because when I looked up the word “love” in search I actually ended up finding a place that used such great words like “gangbang orgy” and “gloryhole”. Emmanuelle’s Island Of Love is, amazingly enough, actually really nicely put together. It’s a beautiful island with a lovely park-like setting that just happens to have a gangbang area.
Who doesn’t want to partake in a gangbang orgy in a park?
Yeah…I am FULL of questions today.
During my visit I didn’t run into anyone so it gave me a chance to wander around. From the lovely nature paths to the ocean itself you wouldn’t know it was a sex area unless you found the sex balls, gangbang area, or that glory hole. I would like to point out that in my few minutes of walking around I never did find the damn glory hole.
Who doesn’t want to find a glory hole? OK. I’ll stop now.
My favorite area of the island had to be the clubhouse. It’s a beautiful setting that is tastefully done. Yes…there are places to have sex but it’s not like they threw in some props and said “Have fun!”. It looks like they actually took the time and had a decorating plan of action. During my visit I did not run into anyone on the island. Sorry but I don’t have any great “Ooops! Sorry to interrupt!” stories. There is a downside and I feel that they kinda went overboard with the clutter in some areas. An example is the gangbang area. I can understand that you need a LOT of props to properly stage a gangbang but between that, couches, pictures, and other items it feels cluttered. Same goes with the area you first rez in at. Besides that it is a very appealing island for the virtual sex crowd.
After visiting Emmanuelle’s Island Of Love (A) I ended up hoping around the search from place to place trying to find something to write about. When I teleported into an empty area then found myself alone with someone who wanted to “get to know me better” I just logged off. I will say that, if you are looking to get your rocks off in a virtual world then Emmanuelle’s Island Of Love (A) is a good place to do it.
Hehe. Do it.
Recently I was asked to collaborate on a sex blog. Write articles for it. I was going to try to put this article out at the same time I put an article out there on virtual sex but I’m not ready to release it just yet. I thought that it might be fun to share since this is a SL related blog and I use Second Life as an example of virtual sex. When it comes out I shall share with all of you wonderful people.
Sometimes I end up having to write about places that I cannot go looking like my normal avatar self. This week was no exception as I am going to be reviewing a SEX (I said that big because…why the hell not) area. Can’t go into an adult area as me.
This forces me to, on occasion, have to actually do some sort of fashion related shopping. I’m not really into having to keep up with the latest in SL fashions for a few reasons.
1. Things constantly change so it’s hard to actually keep up without spending a LOT of money on virtual clothing. I have better things to do with my money.
2. I don’t give a crap about mesh hands or boobs and I’m not going to spend money on them. They are overly expensive and I don’t think that anyone is actually looking at my stupid hands. As for the boobs…bah…I don’t want overly large cartoon chesticles thank you very much. Those of you who have them look SLUPID!!
3. I dislike trying to match skin tone to a foot because it’s a pain in the ass and I don’t have time to waste matching my damn foot.
4. I am actually here for a purpose that is not shopping related. I actually have things to do other than throw my L$ around on shoes and hair.
With that said I actually had to go find an outfit to put on my biggie avatar for when I go to places that I cannot go with my normal one. This rarely happens but you can’t exactly go into adult areas as a small animal. It’s frowned upon. Being forced to find something to put on my big avatar this is what I ended up with….
OK. That was actually my “Second Life Fashion Blog” shot. You people should know by now that NOBODY looks like that in Second Life. Airbrushed pieces of crap. The outfit actually looks like this. Only thing I did was crop the damn picture.
Trying to find a dress that does not make you look like a cheap hooker with a smack problem is a pain in the ass. I like this dress but it is cut WAY more in the boobage area then I would prefer. Still…it is pretty…
Oh. Still don’t give a crap about mesh hands. Unless you want to actually buy them for me. And match them to my skin. I’ve got things to do.
Why am I writing this? Because it’s a great lesson in what we have to go through in a virtual world to look good enough to be allowed into some places. Be it an area that involves sex, role-playing, or whatever. Why would I even bother to have to change me to go someplace that wouldn’t accept me as me? (YES! Say that five times fast!) I can’t successfully run a review site if I don’t review every aspect of Second Life. So I do what I have to do. I would prefer it if I could go as myself but I”m not allowed to. That’s an article in itself right there.
I’m also writing this because I suffer for you. If I have to suffer this week then so should you.
I like sharing.

I am here today to explain what the word “Review” means. It means “To Write Critical Reviews”, “To Examine With An Eye To Criticism Or Correction”. To put it in easy words so you will understand it means that someone takes a look at something (A place/product/etc.) and gives their opinion on if the item/place is good or not. That is what a review is.
I will take this opportunity to point to the name of this site. See how it has the word “Review” in it? If you’ve learned that letters form words and are able to read them then you’ll see it.
Glad we got that out-of-the-way.
If I write a good review about your place then good for you! I have extremely high standards for a place and you made the grade. Pat yourself on the back for a job well done.
If I write a bad review on your place then maybe you’ll have to take a step back, look around, and realize that what you’ve created is probably pure shit. Screaming at me because I thought you had a crappy product or a shitty car wash or place isn’t going to change the fact that it flat-out sucks. The only thing that I will probably do for you is ignore you.
I’ve been writing reviews for seven years now. I’ve seen the good. I’ve seen the bad. I’ve seen the pure shit that the grid can produce. I’ve praised. I’ve slammed. I’ve ripped apart a stripper pole at a race track or two in my time. This is my right. I am allowed to have an opinion on your commodity. I am also allowed to share my opinion with the world. What I say is what I say. What you create is on you.
I’ll take this moment to point back to the word “review”. Reviews review things. Say that five times fast. (If you were able to figure out that whole hooked on phonics reading thing.)
With that said I hope you have a wonder day. I hope that my review on your item/place makes you take pause, be it for the praise or the need to change. May you stray from NO LOVE and maybe reflect on NO FUN. If you cannot take criticism for your creations then, all I can really say to you is, eat shit.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Much love to everyone who actually reads the words I write down.
I took this years Valentine’s Day picture at the Isle Of View (G) which is a Linden Lab location that has been around since 2008. Then disappeared. Then came back. I have always loved how the name makes me think of Piers Anthony .
The whole Isle Of View/Kiss A Linden/Kiss A Volunteer started in 2008 then disappeared in 2012 but now seems to be back for 2014. It appears to be in the destination guide so maybe we’ll see a bit of kissing on Valentine’s Day. I suggest making a quick stop today to the Isle Of View (G) to see if you get to kiss someone as well as take a ride on a swan boat.
Who doesn’t love swan boats?
Valentine’s Day is almost upon you. Maybe you’ve bought your sweetheart some flowers or some virtual chocolates. You’ve practiced your proclamations of love and picked out the perfect outfit to wear. But…have you figured out where you’re going to take your date for dinner?
OH NO! YOU FAIL!!
OK…you don’t fail.
Tipsy is here to rescue you! Take your date to an old standby that still works for a nice virtual dinner. The Brunel Hall Hotel And Restaurant (M) in the Academy Of Industry region of New Babbage has been a wonderful place to take someone special for the past four years.
Make your way to the Muirsheen Durkin Bar and Restaurant which is a self-serve restaurant giving you some of the best atmosphere for prim food and drink. I enjoy restaurants that are self-service because it feels a bit more intimate with a date (And you don’t need to pay for service). The biggest plus for me when it comes to the Muirsheen Durkin Bar and Restaurant is that it that it happens to be friendly to many different types of avatars as they do have a dance ball that is small avatar friendly. Although this is New Babbage role-playing is optional so you do not need to period dress or get into a role to enjoy yourself. (Although I think it would be fun to try it out with a date.)
The Brunel Hall Hotel itself is beautiful with a lovely check in area as well as a giant indoor pool. During my visit all of the hotel rooms were occupied. If you’re planning on, hopefully, spending the night with your date, then you might want to check ahead of time to see if there is space open.
I highly recommend visiting Brunel Hall Hotel & Restaurant (M) because it has become a landmark in Second Life. When something lasts as long as they have then usually it’s a place worth checking out. Especially if it’s a part of New Babbage.
Hope this eases your “Where Should I Take My Date!!???!?” woes.
When you have a giant beehive that happens to have a car stuck in it there is only one thing you can possibly do.
No. It’s not call for a tow truck. You go to a sock hop.
I know that makes absolutely no sense but when you’ve got big hair like this you kinda feel this need to go someplace retro, like a sock hop. I felt this overwhelming urge to grab a paper shaker to dance with, avoid the panty waist, & have a bit of virtual fun.
Yes. I did find a 1950s slang website. Thanks for asking.
First up is the Nifty 50s (G). I thought the description sounded pretty boss with its “Interactive dining coming soon”. What I got was a blast from the 2007 camping craze passed. There are camping balls where, for those that don’t know, allow a person to sit around for so long to earn a few L$. While I was there someone decided to place themselves on a camping ball and walk away from their computer. This ended up leading to a great scene where the ball kept kicking them off saying they had earned the maximum amount for one day. Since they were not actually sitting at a computer they didn’t know this. Because the camping ball kept yelling at them there was nothing but insane chat spam on my screen.
Because of this I didn’t even bother to walk around. If it’s got retro camping going on then I am out of there every time.
Next up was the Starship Diner (M). The place isn’t very large but I did enjoy the fact that they put “No subservience please” in their description. The place boasts a family friendly atmosphere and fishing.
There isn’t really a whole lot to be said. The inside of the diner is wide open so there is room to dance. There is no flashy new prims to be had so it’s pretty basic in design. There was no one around when I visited but there was a chicken on the dance floor.
After visiting the first two places I ended up scouring the search trying to find something that knocked my bobby socks off. So far I had run into a whole lot of “Blah”. My last stop, The Hop (M), wasn’t too bad. They have the diner for dancing, a retro gas station (with nothing inside of the building), and a motel.
Outside of the The Hop you’ll find line after lines of dance balls for people to dance in sync with each other. I’m not big on the dance ball thing because it always looks extremely cluttered. This isn’t the fault of The Hop. It’s just not something I dig. Inside is pretty spacious so there is plenty of room for lots of people to get their sock hop on. It’s not too bad. I’m assuming that, when packed, it might not be a bad place to hang.
If you’re trying to find a good sock hop/retro 50′s diner there are quite a few that aren’t too shabby. Many of them are not new with shiny neato mesh builds. The whole point of most of these places isn’t to look new but to give you a place to listen to doo-wop and maybe hang with a few like-minded individuals. Out of these three I would most likely find myself visiting The Hop again during an event to see how the crowds are. If the crowds are talkative and fun then that’s all that really matters.
SLurls To Each Location:
You know that I only named this article “Love Rollercoaster” so you would get THIS SONG stuck in your head.
February is almost upon us and it’s suppose to be the month of love with the whole Valentine’s Day “Give Me Candy! Give Me Flowers! WHERE THE HELL IS MY ROMANTIC CARD ASSHOLE!!” thing. To celebrate this strange thing we like to call “love” I thought we would officially name the month of February “You didn’t go to Jared? You suck at love!” month.
Let’s throw the commercialized “buy my love” crap to the side and officially name the month of February “Love Month”. Simple name. Simple concept. For the entire month I’ll be sprinkling different articles that involve the word “Love”. They will involve all different aspects of love. From places that involve love to thoughts on things I love. Let me ponder what I love.
What do I love? I love my family. I love my friends. I love Mr. C. Cow. I love porn. I love ripping apart the things that annoy me. Yup…it’s going to be one of THOSE types of months.
Here’s To Looking Ahead To “Love Month” February.
