Thoughts on SL architecture

I’m diving into SL architecture again. I think that SL architecture really needs a shake-up. Badly. For a few reasons:

It’s a virtual world, which means nothing is real, so why are we holding so tightly to the realistic constructs of physics, weather and time? Why do all houses and stores have to have the basic all enclosing walls, doors and roofs. Are we warding off mud flinging Read the rest of this entry »

I has a sadface. QQ

So, I get back from holidays. I log in. What do I see in the region name at the top of my screen? Xeniversity Sandbox.  Bit what’s right after it?

‘- SANDBOX IS CLOSED’

!!!!!!!!

What do you mean, closed!  I pretty much LIVE there! I’m there 23/7! The only sandbox I’ve ever sen that’s not full of griefers laggy moons and the dregs of SL!  Nooooooooooooooooo!  I cry.

Well, thanks for the good times Xen, I really appreciated it while it lasted<3. Anyone know of another GOOD sandbox that's not all nooby and greiferey, and us actually still open?

In other news: I saw a bike infested with honey bees today

So, android is rad.

So now that I have a wp app on my phone, ill probably post a more constant stream of nonsense chattering.  Last night I viciously cut my finger…. on my PINKY TOENAIL! Instead of QQ-ing, I drew eyes above it and made a face. But its right on the side of the knuckle so every time time I bend my finger it pulls open, and hurts.  “Well, don’t bend your finger,” you may think, but it’s on my index finger… my INDEX finger.  So my creativity will be down.

I have made some earrings! Little crocheted. Voodoo/string dolls. Pain-painstakingly shadow-mapped with the shittiest program for sculpts EVER, 3ds max. Nothing lines up.  So after much tweaking and swearing, they’re done.  I’ll post a link to them in the marketplace when I get them listed.  I’m also making the dolls in real life, because I have 21 hours on a plane in my near future and they don’t require knitting needles or crochet hooks, because, you know, knitting needles are terrorists go-to weapon of choice.

hiatus much?

yeah so, I kind of disappeared for a bit. not cool but whatever.
I needed a break. I’m finally starting to get inspired again, and I finally want to create and explore again. I think I might start making a line of modular prefabs – rooms that you can slot together into a house/skybox/ hotel/ shop/ whatever however you want. I’ve made a bedroom that I really like, so I’ll just make some more bits and pieces and see where it goes.

unrelated

Ahh, it’s been a long last couple of days. A long couple of days that makes me happy I don’t go out more often. I realise that I’m not great at interacting whit people in person. So I think I’ll just avoid doing it.

Apparently if you go out with someone for their birthday, and their little brother drags you off the dance floor and tries to make out with you, you should not get your face near his ear to tell you that you don’t want to make out with him because you are too old, too sober, and too married, because she’ll come around the corner and find you, and then accuse you of cheating on your husband, with her little brother, and threaten to punch you in the face, and tell your husband, and then subsequently refuse to speak to you ever again. FANTASTIC!

whew!

Wow, personal advertizing/PR is a LOT of work! Over the last few days I’ve got together my twitter, plurk, and avatars united accounts. I’ve totally overhauled my SL profile, my SL wiki page, and my personal website/blog. I’m wondering if I should do koinup, MySpace, and facebook too. I don’t know if I can be assed!

Lordy

This was supposed to be a simplistic lazyblog.  stated out on wordpress.com earlier today, but i couldn’t customize it so i moved it to my domain.  Now I’ve spent all damned day doing this.

whatever it will all be fancy and work nicely now.  Im gonna use this as a CMS framework.  go me.

It better let me us php in my pages though, or imma get stabby pretty fast, and nobody wants that.

ohh! a blog, i bet you've never seen one before have you!

hey, My name is Alexis Stapovic.Well that’s not my real name, but I like to parade around and pretend that it is.  I use Second life.

In my non SL life I am a pretty fab web designer, and a graphic designer also!  I could have installed wordpress on my own domain, but guess what: I’m too damned lazy.  I wanted some place I could go and spew unprocessed drivel without expending too much effort.

I like this theme, its nifty eh?  I think I’ll use this one.  I choo choo choose you!

I plan on writing whatever I want without much regard for what anyone thinks of it..  I might elate some people, I might offend some people.  All of my links go right into SL, not to the stupid slurl page.  ‘Cause that page is lame.

New build, new makeup (rl)

So, not that anyone goes to my store, or reads my blog, but I have (another) new build. The hole in the wall to envy is gone, because envy moved away/closed that location. She also sold me one of her little plots, which I’m just using for prims.. so have a little lawn space beside my store. and i needed more space. so skins are downstairs, eyes are upstairs.

What makes me all concernicus, is my freaky desire to use pink in the build. I don’t even like pink. In fact, I HATE pink. But because of MAC’s damned Hello Kitty release (more about that later) I feel inable to create anything that isn’t black-white-pink-grey. I’ve included my own color change script in most of the pink things so when I finally snap put of this, it won’t take me 20 years to get rid of all of it.
