    RL vagaries and our attitude towards SL and virtual worlds in general

    Looks like the decline began around 2010 and 2011, when LL killed the academic discount. Most academics moved to Open Sim or Unity after that. Here's one article about it, but the article was published months after the changes started taking effect in the academic community. When the change...

    Halp - finding legit music for SL instrument.

    That would probably be expensive. Justin Johnson might not be a big rock star yet, but he plays huge festivals and stadiums. I doubt his agent sells his stuff cheap. My first stop for this kind of thing is always the Internet Archive. You probably already checked there, but just in case...

    Nobody Cares about TV and Film

    Social media is weird. This is almost word salad... Tinder is producing a branded, narrative show for tik tok. Who thought this was a good idea? Then again... I'm tempted to install tik tok out of morbid curiosity now. I mean, yeah, it's Chinese spyware, but this is so weird, I want to see it.

    Food for thought regarding VR's #1 Sacred Cow

    LOL, that's one thing I never have to worry about. I never met another Triskaidekaphobia in SL. My full SL name is Bubblesort Triskaidekaphobia. When I first signed up, it took me forever to learn to spell it, so I could log on.

    Food for thought regarding VR's #1 Sacred Cow

    LOL, I haven't thought about Mike Prime in years. He's gotta be out of prison by now. Wonder what he's up to. Probably making bank coding for Russia or something (his SL GF was from Moscow).

    Nobody Cares - Second Life Is Weird AF

    I got a premium account the other day, mostly to mess around with scripting experiences (you need premium to get a key to make an experience). So I went to get my Linden home, just because I'm not in the mood to build a house right now. I found some nice suburban houses called Bellisseria...

    What Is the Worst Movie You’ve Seen Recently?

    I just saw the new Mortal Kombat in a theater, and it was bad. I mean, I didn't expect it to be the 21st century's Citizen Kane or anything, but it was BAD bad. First of all, no song. The song was stuck in my head all day, because I was looking forward to cheesy fight scenes with the song...

    The Race Against Deepfakes

    I think the first government use of deep fakes will not be to educate people. It will be used against minorities. They will somehow deep fake police brutality, triggering protests, which the police will escalate to riots. After the city burns, they will reveal that it was a deep fake all...

    Plant-based beer thread

    Oh come on, you guys can't tell me you never went beer hunting. It's a huge tradition in my family. My father learned from his father, who learned from grandad, who learned it from his father, and so forth and so on, for time immemorial. We always load the blunderbuss with gravel, and then go...

    SL Map Broken?

    I don't know if this is related, but my LMs are taking me to arbitrary locations. Like today I thought I'd check out some old places in my favorites folder, just to see what's still around and what's gone. The LMs are not really old, they are just places I haven't been in a long time. Like...

    WTF Sh*t's F*cked Up and Bullsh*t - a "Who Cares" thread for news

    Swingers are promiscuous, and hook up a lot, but polyamorous people have multiple serious relationships at a time, not just hookups. There is some crossover between the two communities, so that is a common mistake to make. In my area, there is a small, separate polyamorous tribe, who take...

    Rest In Peace, Robin (Sojourner) Wood

    Any word on a memorial service? I know SL has a cemetary on public, LL operated land. I participated in a funeral there once. I think we used to be allowed one prim to build a tombstone or memorial to the deceased there, but I think that's not the case any more.
