As you can tell it has been a long time since I’ve posted on the Ol’ review website. Do to real life things (I’m looking at YOU limited gigs!!) I haven’t been able to review places in SL as much as I would like.
Due to this I have started a new website that has given me the opportunity to do what I love, write a creative story, and not use up my interwebbings.
Please go and check out my new website! Postcards From Tipsy!
One Otter, A Camper, An Adventure!
Every Tuesday and Thursday I post a postcard for all of my friends telling them about our adventures in SL (As well as…coming soon…our real life adventures.) You know that an otter with a beehive traveling with a cow has to be funny.
We will be adding another day with something special posted in the future but…shhh…..can’t tell you yet.
Please check out my new website and share it with everyone! Friends. Not Friends. Parents. The Dog. That Weird Guy Next Door That Waters His Lawn At Strange Hours.
Thank you for the support!
I’m a couple of hours early this year saying this but better early than not at all. Or whatever.
I wanted to start out by wishing everyone a wonderfully shamrock-y, possibly green liquor filled, “Kiss Me I’m Irish”, St. Paddy’s Day.
Yes…I said St. Patty’s Day in the picture. To those who grammar attacked me right when I posted this. Go fuck yourself. With a shamrock if you’re so inclined.
Back to what I was saying…..
Mr. C. Cow and I have nothing majorly planned for this years drink lots o’ things holiday. We plan on hanging out in my virtual front yard and working on things I need to work on. I know. We’re so exciting! But…as you can see from the picture we do own a still so suck it sobriety!
Someone needs to make me a real life shirt that says “Suck It Sobriety!”
As for real life it’s a freakin’ Tuesday. Blah. Tuesday. Bishop has to work. I have my work that I have to do. It will be 80 degrees out so I might say screw it and take my work to the lake. Nothing makes you feel better about doing shit then doing it next to a body of water out in the sun.
I do have a bottle of nice Irish whiskey that I do plan on drinking a bit of in honor of my Irish roots. Do you REALLY think I would miss an opportunity to drink that is sorta socially acceptable? Of course not silly people!
Also…I just like whiskey. Don’t need a holiday to drink it but damn it I have an excuse on a Tuesday.
I hope that everyone has a wonderful green wearing, binge drinking, possibly kissing people who are pretending to be Irish, as much fun as one can have on a Tuesday!
Don’t be idiots! Stay Safe!
I’m going to start this with a song stuck in my head while I wrote this. It’s fitting.
I like to browse the Second Life fashion feeds just for the hell of it. Most of the time it’s out of boredom or just to see whats up with whatever someone deems worthy to wear. A lot of it is pure shit. I’m assuming that many fashion bloggers couldn’t give a bad review on an article of clothing if it tried to car jack them, stole their purse, threw their puppy, and called them names.
But I’m not getting into that today. Instead I’m welcoming you into my evil little hell world where I’m just going to bitch about female portrayal in many Second Life fashion photos.
We have to stop for a moment and ponder the state of Second Life or many virtual worlds that are out there. These worlds are inhabited by real people with real lives and feelings.
Blah blah blah.
You’ve heard this all before. Be nice to each other and whateves.
Don’t be a dick you fucking dick.
I just feel that a lot of the ways a woman is portrayed in Second Life fashion blogs is absolute bullshit. I’ve seen more photos this week of women on their knees, wearing slut-tasitc outfits, or just flat out letting it all hang out in a not-so-artsy way. I would assume that everyone is on some sort of “OMG A MOVIE BASED ON A FANFICTION THAT INACCURATELY PORTRAYS A HEALTHY BDSM RELATIONSHIP CAME OUT!” kick with the photography lately but I would be way off. It’s been here before and it’s been here after. It’s not going anywhere.
I am not knocking the kink (I love the kink. I am a step above kink. Trust me. I blow your little universe away. Go kink!), My issue is that the constant bombardment of whorish fashion photos just knocks women in a virtual world back a few pegs. Most of us have been through internet harassment, abuse, or constant “Will you have sex with me?” . You’re not helping. You are really not helping to get people who are not asshole jack off creeps to explore the nerdy (Yes….it’s nerdy….don’t you argue with me…) realm of virtual worlds. When you constantly give hardy reviews to horrific fashion that might cover one nipple, let your ass crack hang out, and involves cum stains does not really help anything but once again stick that post it note of “we’re only here for you guys” bullshit.
I would like to see something a little different this year. I want you to look an outfit you are going to review and honestly tell us if it sucks or not. I want to see someone say “Fuck you!” and post a female positive picture that doesn’t make you some sort of hooker blow job advertisement to get guys to eat you out for money. (That has got to be a hard ass road of virtual porn there my friends. Yes…Made myself laugh with that one.)
Instead of forcing everyone to look the same, become big assed (Even though your big asses are my blog bread and butter….you dumbasses with the insanely fat asses pay the bills yo), bottom titty, submissive little twits why don’t we get a little female positive up in here. Screw looking sexy. It’s all about you baby.
Keep It Classy.
P.S. – By the picture you might think that i do not go biggie on Second Life. That is absolute crap. I do all the time to go to places to write about, etc, etc. What the fuck ever etc. I do not bother anymore to go biggie most of the time via sl anymore because to the fashion ideal of how I should look as well as how I am treated. I would rather be told I am “adorable” rather than get asked for sex everywhere I go. When I put my “biggie” on I get Skype invites, sex invites, etc. I’m a social virtual worlds hermit so leave me along unless you have something interesting to say.
I would also like to point out that I am probably one of the biggest sexual positive, kinky, “let’s do this” real life people on the planet. Pro polyamourous/polyamory. Thumbs up on positive bdsm relationships. Sexual education for the win. I totally dig porn. I just despise being talked to like a piece of meat and treated like a piece of shit in a virtual world. Treat me like a person not your virtual eye candy, shake my titties, piece of virtual waste of space. If I want to fuck you I will. If not then go fuck yourself. That is life in a nutshell folks.
….And this is definitely not showing me what love is. Unless you love going out in public in your underwear with invisible nipples. (Trust me. We’ll discuss nipples in a few minutes.)
Where the hell have you been Tipsy?
What? Can’t even say hi? Ask me how I’m doing? Maybe even offer me a drink or a comfy place to sit? I see how it is.
I’ve actually been busy as hell in real life. That’s the place you go to when you’re not in Second Life for those that aren’t sure what this real life thing is. I haven’t forgotten about you I’ve just been busy. And completely uninspired by a virtual world. But…I’m back…and I have a lot to say.
To make it up to you I thought we would discuss this hot little number I saw while shopping at one of those “Big Box Events” that everyone seems to attend to get a good deal on some virtual shit or another. You have to love these types of places as it is the place to be for the strange and the half-naked sightings.
Today I would like to introduce Ms. Titty Titty Bang Bang. I just wanted to say “Titty Titty Bang Bang” so not only did I name her this but I also got to type it twice. Score!
Ms. TTBB (For short) came in suddenly in search of, I kid you not, clothing. I am assuming that she really needed the clothing as it is winter in most of the world. One cannot go out with your bits just flapping in the wind and not expect to catch a cold. Or at least have your nipples fall off. Yes…I am assuming this is why she has no nipples.
Blame it on her not rezzing all the way. Blame it on forgetting to place your nipples on your body. (HAHAHA! Nipple placement) or just blame it on them falling off do to nippy frostbite. I feel like I should start doing public service commercials with really sad music explaining the dangers of nipple loss. Maybe start a support group of nipple loss survivors. Make posters and hang them up around town.
Please Care About Those That Don’t Have Nipples Do To Nipple Neglect Won’t You?
Of course, if you know me well enough, you know I cannot forget one badonky of the most badonka donk ass shots that I can come up with. You know I love the virtual booty sightings more than anything in this lil virtual world. It’s like the bread and butter of SLA Review writing. Horrifying are some (many..most…whatevs.) and then you have some that are not so bad. Doesn’t matter. Still need a good booty shot.
It’s good to be back!
Definition Of SLupidity (Word Made Up By “Tipsy”) – When something is so insanely dumb in Second Life you cannot help but bash your head into your desk until it goes away.
Example: “Wow! That lady with no nipples looks pretty SLupid.”
Once again the Raglan Shire has taken the month of October, changed it to “Shocktober” and added their own spin to this spooky Halloween filled month. Three different offerings from the Shire give you everything from haunted hotels to carnivals to a reminder that sometimes bunnies are not what they seem.
We start out by walking past a scary looking gas station that I am assuming does not offer the best prices when filling up and run by a cemetery that has seen better days to make our way first to the Haunted Hotel (G).
The hotel itself is probably familiar to many of you as it was the same hotel that MadPea used in the Room 326 game/hunt and was recently taken down a while back. They have it and made it their own with horror around every corridor as well as a movie theater and ballroom for the various Shocktober events happening throughout the month.
Next I made my way to the Tiny Ride Of Horrors (G) which happens to be my favorite part of the Shire’s Halloween celebration each year. The person I took with me also feels that this is the best haunted ride that Second Life has to offer.
The great thing about this virtual ride is the fact that each room is put together by various Raglan Shire residents. It’s a collaboration that changes each year and I would like to say thank you to everyone who was involved in building this years ride. I don’t want to give away the various rooms but you can’t go wrong with getting your hair done, being “blown away”, and clowns.
Our final Shocktober area is the Haunted Carnival (G) which is an area set up above the Shire with various games as well as little carnival rides and something called “The Raglan Madhouse” (it use to be a fun house but fun was crossed off). It’s a little maze filled house that’s great for those who aren’t looking for gore as much as flat-out fun.
If you’re looking to spend some time checking out various Halloween themed areas, enjoy a little bit of scare mixed with goofy fun, and having the opportunity to yell “We’ve Got Cows!” (You’ll get what I’m saying once you visit the ride) then I highly suggest you take a few moments or more to come check out this years Raglan Shire Shocktober.
Don’t forget to also check their events calendar for various Halloween themed events throughout the month.

Today’s review is short and sweet because, sometimes, we don’t have a whole lot of time to spend in Second Life. Maybe we only have a few minutes to do something or talk to someone before real life reels us back in.
If you’re looking for a place that only took me about 8 minutes to run through then I suggest checking out the Bay City Halloween Hay Maze (G).
It’s very simple and the decor is scarce (although I do think they hay bales themselves look pretty nice and the sounds are pretty good) but it’s good for a virtual resident who wants to get their Halloween on without spending an hour at one place.
All I can say for a place that took me 8 minutes to run all the way through is go and try the Bay City Halloween Hay Maze (G) yourself and see how long it takes you.
“Tipsy” (The Maze Runner) Cerulean
When I first started to write today’s title I accidentally typed “Goats” instead of “Ghosts”. I am sorry to inform you that, if you are here for goats, there are none in today’s review. I’m sorry to disappoint all goat lovers around the world.
It’s October. Woo And Stuff!
October is one of my favorite months of the year. It’s Fall flavored beer season, leaves turn pretty colors, and Halloween is on my top five favorite holidays list. All throughout the month I shall share the good (and the flat-out terrible) haunted places, costumes, decor, events, and so much more that goes on all month.
Let’s start out with a little place called Hell’s Corner (M) It is sponsored by DarkClaw Land Design and has its own tag line.
“Where the devil visited and demon’s play…what befell this land?”
I’m not one to knock haunted places sponsored by groups/stores/etc. It takes a lot of time and effort (as well as money) to put places together so more power to those that get a sponsor. I do have to say, at no fault of the creator of Hell’s Corner but when will we get some new haunted house builds as well as new decor (Zombies/Spooks/Etc.)? I know this is going to be a recurring theme throughout the month. I yell at decor and get frustrated walking through the same house (that happens to be the same house I’ve walked through last year. And the year before.) I’ll leave the screaming till at least a week into October and carry on with my review.
Breaths. Takes a sip of a martini. Pat’s Hell’s Corner on the head and tells it that it’s not its fault no one is designing new/good Halloween stuff.
This isn’t a bad visit if you’re looking to ease your way into the Halloween horror season. It’s got your scary house full of scary things. A church that makes you feel wonderfully wicked, as well as wandering around in the dark waiting to see if something tries to off you like some bad b movie. Maybe check out a carnival.
OK. So it looks a tad bit evil and you could get eaten by a clown. What could possibly go wrong there?
I do recommend giving Hell’s Corner (M) a peek. Take some gross pictures of yourself doing horrible things. Maybe pray to the devil that someone will design something new and outstanding for Halloween so an honest theme builder can change the face of horror in Second Life.
Happy Start Of The Horror Season!
“Tipsy” (The Terror) Cerulean
Thither art a few things i cannot intermit in this ordinary. i cannot intermit the promiseth of mead, a possible peasant revolt, and the ability to weareth a coronet whenev’r possible.
You’re probably wondering a few things right now. What the hell did Tipsy just say? How did she say it? (Translator Baby) And…why is she talking like that?
It’s that time of the year again for the Raglan Shire to get their medieval on. September is a month full of ratpops, castles, things that make you feel like you walked into a ren faire mixed with Monty Python (Not a bad thing), and the possibility of finding various foods on sticks. (I happened to find a waffle, pancake, cookie, AND nachos on a stick.)
This is the 8th Annual Raglan Shire Medieval Festival and it does not feel stale like many reoccurring yearly Second Life affairs. Every year, from the various events to the decor, it gives you a feeling of ye ol’ days gone by mixed with the silly fun that only the residents of the Shire can provide.
I do want to point out that each year the Shire raises funds to support various adopted animals.
Elish The Giraffe – ZSL Zoo In London
Malayan Tapir Named Fluffy – Sedgwick Zoo In Kansas
You can find where to donate by looking for the signs.
The shire medieval festival only runs through septemb’r so don’t misseth out on this amazing nonce!

Important SLurls And Web Links:
I put together a wee something for this years festival by turning my in-world office into a tavern. Come check out the Ye Ol’ Drunken Bovine!
Summer has official come to a close in my little real life world. Summertime is a time that I stop just about all writing about Second Life because it’s too damn nice to be cooped up in a house. There are trails to be hiked. Places to be visited. Sun to stare at.
Well…not stared at exactly…you know what I mean.
I’m trying to get back into the swing of writing virtual things again but this takes me a few. I need to try to get ahead a little bit in the writing so I’m not constantly going “Holy Shit! I should put something out!”.
Same goes for the Raglan Report Podcast that I am a part of. I need to update that site and actually record a podcast.
The end of Summer is hard.
So…I’m plotting my plots and whateves to start back into another fun-filled explosion of writing proportions.
