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!
….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.”
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!
The Lady Of Libations – “Tipsy” Cerulean

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.
Sim Location: Prim River National Forest (Which will probably be reviewed soon! Woo!)
Summer is an extremely busy time of the year for me in that place we call “The Real World”.
Real stuff always getting in the way of our virtual lives. Bah!
Summer is a time to take a break and a small vacation. Who doesn’t love vacations???!!!???
Assholes. That’s who!
I will be putting things out throughout the entire Summer but it might be randomly put out with no thought to schedules. That’s what the Summer should be all about. A time to go out into the world, soak up the sun, drink a bunch of fancy drinks that have umbrellas in them, pretend you know how to grill a zucchini without it falling through the grill rack, and just flat-out have fun. Just keep checking back periodically and there might be something out. We’ll get back to a normal writing schedule in the Fall.
I have to put a picture of something up so I put one up of my biggie.
So Go! Get off of your computers and have a bit of fun this Summer. Before you know it Summer will be gone.
The Raglan Shire Artwalk 2014 is officially upon us! I get excited each year when the artwalk comes around because it shows that not only can residents in the virtual world of Second Life come together to showcase their creations but people from all walks of the grid converge on the Shire to share their appreciation of art. This is a large yearly event that has over 140 artists that is not just for the folks of the Raglan Shire but the entire grid itself. Big, small, furry, or whatever you are it’s all about the art.
The artwalk spans over six areas so there is a lot to see. I recommend checking out the handy-dandy maps you’ll see around the Shire so you’ll know where everything is. (3d & 2d art as well as sculptures and everything arty)
I live in as well as have the Raglan Report Office in Morning Shire and it was an absolute pleasure to be able to walk just a few steps down the Shire path to see some of the best art shared by so many people.
You never know what you’ll run into at art walk. As I wandered around admiring so much talent a caterpillar passed on by with a few riders.
There is so much amazing art going on that I cannot possibly share it all with you. I HIGHLY recommend you come and check out the talent of so many people, pick up some free artwalk swag at the Tree Stump Swag Area, as well as check out the Shire’s Calendar of events for various art related parties/performances/etc.
Art! On A Hedge!
Important Info To Know:
The Raglan Shire Artwalk 2014 will be around until Sunday May 25th. You can visit the Official Raglan Shire Webpage for more information.

Don’t know what Second Life is? Want to be a part of SL so you can go to such amazing events like Artwalk? Then visit the official Second Life website for more information.
I want to thank those who have worked so hard to put on this years artwalk. From the people who set it all up, to the artists, to those that make it all run smoothly. Thank you for all you do!
A Winter Storm Warning Has Been Issued For Parts Of The Grid Starting At 10am SLT.
Winter Storm Janis Joplin will be rolling in at a speed of about “whoa babe” and “whoa yeah”. Snow might be heavy at times do to “Mary Jane, Mary Jane Lord My Mary Jane.” Please remember to take caution while traveling. Whatever you do please remember “Don’t you go and spoil it babe, by trying to get yourself all uptight.”.
Every year, when we get snow in real life, I like to write a virtual story with pictures about the woes of snow. I also feel it is my duty, as a “serious” virtual worlds writer, that I must share any weather warnings that occur around the grid. This one has taken almost all winter because we’re finally going to get our first snow today. It’s not even here yet but I think I keep hearing voices saying “Doooooom” and “Go To The Carry Out And Get 40s In Brown Paper Bags!”.
I also want to point out that I did make fun of a Janis Joplin Greatest Hits CD by asking “What great hits?” this past weekend so I could possibly be blamed for snowmageddon.
To Everyone That Winter Storm Janus (Janis Joplin) Please Be Safe. Don’t Let It Take A Little Piece Of Your Heart Now Baby….
Picture was taken at my office in Morning Shire – A Part Of The Raglan Shire
We are super worn out.
Since October the SLA Review has put out almost 50 articles on everything from the holidays to events to neat stuff we’ve found around the grid to places to visit (or not). Then we’ve done a lot of work helping out with various things in-world as well as doing our own thing, DJ-ing for various parties, & getting our organizational skills on. Then…don’t forget that we podcast the Tinies On Tape with “St.” Bishop as other musical things. Our plate is always full. (And so is our beer mugs because you have to admit you can’t do all of this without always having beer on hand.)
I am going to try to take the SLA Review & give it a vacation until January 10th. Will still be doing all of the other things but will try to take a review/writing break. It probably won’t last even that long because I get this “I MUST WRITE SOMETHING!!” thing that comes over me. I do want to say that if you have a place you want me to look at or an event/theme coming up let me know & I can review/write about it. If you need music let me know. See…I can’t ever really vacation. I just don’t have it in me.
Don’t cry…we’ll be back on January 10th!
Time To Take A Nap!
December brings virtual snowflakes, dusting off the holiday decorations & changing over the SLA Review & Tinies On Tape Office.
Tipsy’s World (Because I really couldn’t come up with a better name off the top of my head when I named it. I was probably drinking at the time) is home to both the SLA Review & Tinies On Tape (The Official Raglan Shire Podcast Of Great Awesome Wootness). This year we have Santa Claus hanging out by his sled, a great hang out area outside, snow stuffs, & a lot of other neato things to check out when you visit us.
We also have Rambo The Professional Gift Wrapper.
His first profession choice was dentist but he was beat out by an annoying blond-haired elf who has a habit of singing about being a misfit.
Feel free to stop in, hang out, & check out the information for both the SLA Review & Tinies On Tape! And wander around the area to check out all of the nice holiday decorations residents of Morning Shire are setting up to get ready for Winterfest in the Raglan Shire.
