WTF LL of the Day: Um...

It's been a LONG time since I have had a "WTF LL of the Day" post, but I think this counts as one!

Easy fix though (thanks to Dia). I had been a tiny and my body kept folding. The fix: Stop animating my avatar and ta-da! Back to my normal self!

Elle in Kitely

I ran into an old Caledon acquaintance who convinced me to take a look at Kitely. A builder's paradise in that you can get a lot of sim and prims for a whole lot less. Of course, I convinced Phin to noob it up with me and explore it...
 It had a very SL circa 2007-08 feel to me. Having been around in SL back then, it was like being in a fun throwback, except as a noob it was very hard to figure out how to get anything for yourself or what to do next. As in SL, one of the very first places I visited was their inworld version of Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater...
This one was really nicely done and to me, actually better than the SL version of it. I have been to the real life one and found the layout very familiar. I knew exactly where to go...
 There's Phin!
Phin and I always explore other virtual worlds. We joke it is in case we need to immigrate to a new one someday.

Tiny Poetry Slam: Animals

Went to the tiny poetry slam on Monday. Topic was "Animals." Here was my poem, called "In Raglan":

All of us critters
Scampering around
Up in Steve
Down on the ground
Some on 2 legs
Some on 4
Where are the waffles?
Give us more!

The Tier is Too Damn High

It was crazy. Just as I had started really getting into fantasy roleplay in SL, both of the communities that I was involved in--Estara and Mystara--closed! I feel like a jinx or something.

For both, the high tier rates were cited as the major factor behind the closures. I still marvel at the fact that in 2015 they are still expensive. One of the things that could possibly attract people to sim ownership is accessibility price-wise. But I suppose if you can make a killing gouging folks, why change your model?

I know I have always wanted my own sim: to create, show folks something wonderful for them to enjoy. The price was and is so prohibitive. For some folks, just making their regular tier is a struggle, but so many are like me...wanting the space to create and thrive inworld.

Hopefully more communities won't be lost or displaced because the rent is too damn high.

The Robots Perform

 The "Robots" came through to the Steelhead Town Meeting tonight...
And gave a great concert afterwards...
 Their sets are always like a performance art unto itself...
 Who doesn't like floating brains?

Easter Parade

Thought I'd pop through Raglan and join my fellow tinies in an Easter parade through the sim. There was a bounce castle set out., too much fun!
