Digits! ... Dig it?

Erm ... well ... this could (and prolly will) be a quick one for Strawberry Singh's Monday Meme 'What's your Digits?' ... I've done it in 2011 already as you can see here ... and haven't changed my digits since then ;-)

Darn ... I grabbed the wrong ruler ..............

Part 1 - Proportions Challenge Questions:
  1. Do you try and keep your avatar’s body proportionate and similar to the “average” proportions pictured above?   Nope ... I don't care about proprtions neither average nor any other ... at  least not deliberately ... ;-)
  2. What do you dislike the most about the SL avatar mesh?  Like many others I'm not happy about the SL hands and even worse, the feet. But I'm no fan of prim/mesh body parts so I usually just stick to what mother SL-nature gave to me and cover it with boots and clothing when needed ...
  3. Does it bother you when you see other avatars that are not proportionate at all? – Nope, everyone can have the look he/she likes, that's ok. What bothers me is when ppl tell me that I should get a new, more modern/up-to-date skin/shape/outfit ... I don't like to be told what I should look like ... in neither life!!
  4. Even though this is a virtual world and people can be anything they want to be, do you feel when they are in human form, they should try to keep their proportions close to average? Hell no ... if everyone would perfectly match those 'average' proportions, darn, that would be pretty boring ... and actually to have a proper 'average' you need some 'extremes' at all ends ;-)

Part 2 - Sharing my digits:
Sorry ... I'm lazy ... I just post the pic from 2011 ... as I said nothing's changed (since 2006 actually ... lol )

PS. I know that proportions can be pretty important and helpful ... and messing them up can make you pretty dizzy in the head ... but so do roundabouts, love and alcohol ... and we still like it ;-)

Loony tries it the dark and charming way ...

Well ... 'tries' I said ;-)
... as often before, I found this kind of lil game on Rudh's blog ... and like her I couldn't resist ;-)
So I did my best to be dark and charming ... and girlish as can be .................

and now I wanna see your doll from Dark Charming ... ;-)

Those are weird questions?

kk ... lazy blogger-me squeezes in one of the memes from Strawberry Singh, even tho I don't have answers to all questions ... not even weird answers ;-)

  1. Which was the last sim you visited? (Other than your home) Sanctuary Rock (at my last shift for a while)
  2. Does your avatar look like the real you? Erm ... well ... I tried to make it look like me, which was a lot harder than I thought and didn't work as I wanted and my SL me looks a lot younger than me ... sepecially as I didn't change my shape and skin after my first weeks in SL ... but there is a slight similarity as you can see in this pic of half SL and half RL .......
    I know ... it looks creepy ;-)

  3. Do you wear underwear/panties underneath your clothing when out and about on the grid? erm ... should I? ... I don't care much about what I wear, it's mostly the same outfit everytime I'm logged in ... and usually there was nobody around while I redressed for an event ... at least I think there was nobody ... ;-)
  4. If you won a million linden dollars, what would be the first thing you buy inworld? Run to the next Linden-exchange and swap it for € ... hehe
  5. Have you ever bought something in SL and then realized afterwards that you had already owned it from before? Probably not (or I never noticed) ... as I hardly go shopping.
  6. Have you ever done anything in Second Life that would be considered illegal in real life? Well ... nothing too serious ... just the usual stuff ... entering private property without permission, (accidently) stealing a box of jeans from a sales-wall, killing zombies ... and asking my DJs to torture the audience ... ;-)
  7. If you could go out on a date with any other avatar, who would it be? on a SL date or an RL date ??!!?? ... well ... I wouldn't go to any dates in SL anymore ... but I sure would like to have a date in RL with some of the folks I got to know in SL ... erm ... maybe not a 'date' , but just some eye to eye talking and a hug ;-)
  8. Who, in your opinion, was the greatest avatar to ever slive? got no idea !!!! ... that's a really weird question !!!
  9. What is the most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done inworld? erm ... there were a few occasions were I was pretty embarrassed ... and I quickly forgot them ;-) ... Most of them happened when I was a newbie and didn't know how SL worked ... I once was exploring SL mainland together with my daughter ... we found a nice looking pool and wondered about the pink and blue balls in there ... we sat on those balls and were laughing our asses off about the 'action' that was going on, when suddenly the owner of the pool appeared and as he wasn't happy at all about us as guests, we hurried to tp out to the next place we had a lm of, some club, but we had forgotten to hop off the poseballs ... and so we were still in the action-pose, just not together ... that looked darn strange *blush* and I didn't log back in for a while ... lol ...
  10. If your avatar had a mind of its own, what do you think it would say to you? My avatar got a mind of it's own ;-) ... and she said 'Maria, you might be a loony, but take a SL-break for a while and leave me alone' ... and guess what ... I'm a good girl and follow that advice ;-)
Cya ... *hugs*

The RL-me that's kicking the SL-me Meme

... or something like that ;-)
well ... I'm enjoying RL and somehow neglect SL a bit ... and as I just realized ... neglected my blog too ... DAMN IT ... spank me !!!! 
... but not too hard !!!!!

So while being rather passive than active virtual-life-wise ...
I saw on a nice Meme Challenge (originally set up by Cara ) that fits this situation a bit ...
... and tho I did something similar ca. 2 years ago with the Answer with Pix Challenge , I 'm in the mood to do it again (even tho I dropped 4 questions, as I don't watch any television serials, I'm not into any sports, I like all seasons the same and darn, what's in a letter ... *grins*)

you know what to do ... click pic to enlarge ;-)

Favorite Color: all kinds of Green, but the darker the better ;-)

Favorite Flower: Roses, especially those rich smell

Favorite Animal: Cats and Snakes  so this is the perfect pic

Favorite Music: Rock, Punk, Metal ... well and at the moment I'm into bands from Lille (France), I guess ... like Burning Lady, Tyson Boogie and my absolute favs Toxic Waste, of course ;-) 

Favorite Book: all books by Terry Pratchett, Wyrd Sisters was the first discworld novel I read years ago ... and I read them all up to now, I just love them ;-)

Favorite Movie: The 5th Element ... awesome movie ... tho I would actually put a whole list in here with Heath Ledger movies, The Watchmen, In Bruges, Life of Brian, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Payback, Die Hard ... and prolly a lot of movies that just escaped my mind ;-)

Favorite Hot Drink: Coffee ... and coffee ... and coffee ... and coffee ... and coffee ...........
Favorite Cold Drink: usually I drink water most of the time .... but if I had the choice ... mmmmhhh Cider .... mmmmhhh ... cold fresh cider ;-) 

Favorite Food: Cake ... and chocolate  .... and pizza ... and pasta ... and cheese-tomato-basilicum-onion-sandwich ;-)
Favorite Clothing: Jeans and cool Tees ... mostly band-tees, but this one I just bought is made by the guitarplayer from Turbowolf ... isn't it supercool ?!?

Favorite Number: 42 ... what else ??!!?? ... I mean ... it's THE ANSWER ;-)

Favorite Place: well, I like a lot of places, but as I try to pic one (kinda) ... in front of a stage in a cool club with a cool band playing  ... or even better ON that stage ... ;-)

Astrological Sign: Aquarius

Favorite Fantasy Creature: The Reaperman ;-) ... well ... not that I want to meet him anytime soon ;-)
Favorite Hobby: Oh Bugger ... another one that needs a list ... lol ... bass, machinamas, messing with photos

Favorite Song: ... did I mention I need lists ?!? ;-) ... the fav song is usually depending on my mood ... but at the moment I have the album 'Trauma' by Toxic Waste on heavy rotation, therefore the album-cover is my pic of choice ... erm ... did I mention that Toxic Waste are my fave band ?!? ... *grins*

kk ... I see it's too tough for me to choose just one for most favs ... but ... so what ;-)

YaY for Toxic Waste and Les Crevettes

The event I had anxiously been waiting for is already over for more than a week ... 
but it was awesome ...
My fav band Toxic Waste had one of their tour-gigs in a town close to my home ... and to top the evening, Les Crevettes, another fav band of mine agreed to be supporting act ...
how cool is that ;-)))
I wish the evening could have lasted much longer ... but I must admit that, after it was time to say bye-bye the next day, I felt kinda dead  ... 
Guess at my age I need more than 2 hours of sleep ... *grins*
But I'm pretty sure that I will see both bands again ... sooner or later ... and I'm already looking forward to it !!!
Till then ... and as a thank you to those rocking guys ...
here's my very personal Loony's Toxic Waste - Les Crevettes - Mix

Why ... damn it, WHY ... do I BLOG ?!?

 o.o ... Strawberry Singh is curious again ... ;-)
  1. How long have you been blogging? Since Oktober 2008
  2. Why did you start blogging? In the beginning I wanted to show the creations I did for my store 'LoonAtic Wear' .... but as I didn't want it to be a pure 'Shop-Blog', I added pics and thoughts from/about my daily SL-Life and my mood in general ...
  3. How many times a week do you post an entry? It depends ... there have been times when I did several posts a week ... at the moment I hardly do one post  ... tho I want to post more again, if my RL releases me now and then ;-)
  4. How many different blogs do you read on a regular basis? There are maybe 10 blogs I really read ... and maybe 20 other blogs that I look at least at the pics ;-) ... I use Google Reader and I'm already afraid of the time when it closes down in July ... I haven't found a satisfying replacement yet ...
  5. Do you comment on other people’s blogs? I often comment in my head, but then I'm sometimes too shy to really write the comment. So I usually comment only on blogs of friends.
  6. Do you keep track of how many visitors you have? I use statcounter, but as I don't look at it as often as I used to (it's too depressing to see several days with a ZERO in a row, lol).
  7. Did you ever regret a post that you wrote? Well ... to be honest ... I once wrote a post when I was very sad and hurt by something that happened in my SL-Life ... but after a few hours  I edited the post to be less personal ... cause it's no use in hurting someone, just because you've been hurt yourself.
  8. Do you think your readers have a true sense of who you are based on your blog? I don't try to be someone else than I am (apart from the fact that Mayala-me is a pixel character) ... and as I write about my RL sometimes, a reader can get a slight idea of who I am.   

  9. Do you blog under your real name? Nope, I blog as Mayala/LoonAtic/Loony ... tho I think I might have mentioned my real first name now and then (at least in some video-clips) ... *grins* 

  10. Are there topics that you would never blog about? I usually don't blog about other people (SL/RL) without their permission. I don't blog heavy/too serious stuff ... and I don't blog about fashion ;-p
  11. What is the theme/topic of your blog? ... well ... I guess I do not really have a theme, it's more a bit of a mess ... I like to post pics I do for challenges like the Colour Challenge, Single Frame Stories, these memes or stuff I see in SL (tho somehow my time gets less there) ... I love to post my silly machinimas (btw. watch out ... another mad machinima coming soon with a mad hellish race ... *grins* ... ) pictures I do with my RL camera and of course I love to post clips from the concerts I've been too in RL like this clip from last weekend, when my absolute favs, the french PunkRock-Band TOXIC WASTE came over for a visit during their tour (I just LOVE them)   
  12. Do you have more than one blog? If so, why? I actually have 2 more blogs, but both totally neglected ... my pure shop-blog LoonAtic Wear Pure  (but my shop is on hiatus ... and so is that blog) and my RL Photo Blog LoonYpix (I have tons of pics for it, but I'm too lazy to upload them)
  13. What have you found to be the benefits of blogging? I use the blog as a kind of scrap-book ... and love to look at old blog-entries now and then ;-)
  14. So, why do you continue to blog? It's fun ... and I like to share pics and clips and nonsense with people I don't even know (well and of course with friends too ;-p ... )

SL Names and a Rocking Week

YaY ... another meme from Strawberry Singh ... a slightly bit easier than last time ;-)

1. What’s your SL name? Mayala Loon

2. What made you choose this name? 'Mayala' sounds close to my RL name (now you can try and guess ;-p ) and 'Loon', well,  prolly because I've always been a bit of a loonatic, so it just fitted.

3. What’s your SL nickname, or what do most people call you? Loony

4. What’s your SL display name? Why do you choose to have one? I don't like display names, so I don't have one ... I like my name ;-)

5. Do you like your SL name? erm ... Yes! (took me ages to choose it ... lol)

6.  If you could change your SL name, what would it be? I wouldn't want any other name

7. What’s the craziest/funniest SL name you’ve ever seen? As a host I get to see a lot of strange and funny names  lie 'TickleMiPickle Sideways', 'Districtanticarnapping' and 'wickramasinghekosala' ... but as a pea brain I unfortunatele forgot most of them ;-(

8. What’s the coolest (your favorite) SL name you’ve ever seen? see above (I'm a very small pea brain)

and as I just don't find enough time for blogging more at the moment, I squeeze in my reason for RL-Happiness into this post ... cause this week just gets ready to become my top week of the year ;-))
2 of my absolut fav bands playing in the same week ... and I'll be there to see them ;-))
Starting tomorrow with 'Les Crevettes' , a local band that I wish had more gigs around here ...
and Friday my absolute favs, the french punkrock group 'Toxic Waste' stopping by on their lil eastern tour. I'm sure we'll have a pretty cool evening and I'm very glad to welcome them as dear guests ;-))

My 10 SL Firsts

kk ... I left out the last 2 memes suggested by Strawberry Singh ... 
- cause I'm not much into social networks (maybe I'm anti-social ... hehe) tho I have a Facebook-Account that I use rather to stay in contact with bands I like and I use Flickr rather to store pics than to interact ...
- cause I think I don't have any peeves (neither pet nor any other) ... I'm a very patient and optimistic person ;-)

but today's theme sent me on a nice memory trip thru a collection of old SL-Snapshots on my extern hd ... and even tho I won't answer all, I'll give it a try ...

not even 30 days old ;-) ...'Camping' on Bali Hai ... hard earned Lindens ... but at least with my selfmade bass
  1. First SL Friend: I'm not sure who exactly my first SL-friend was ... I think I met Boss (a nice dutch guy) and Bry (a nice english guy) at almost the same time ... and as far as I remember on the same sim, Bali Hai. Bry unfortunately left SL long ago, Boss is still there and we say hello now and then or meet in RL during a vacation in the Netherlands ... always a pleasure :-))  
  2. First SL Kiss: erm ...  no comment /  ... or if you insist ... here's a pic of an SL kiss with Max (my RL hubby) *sniggerz* 
  3. First SLex time/place/partner: OMG good ol' wild days (drools away) ... erm ... no comment ... *grins*
  4. First SL Partner/Girlfriend/Boyfriend/Wife/Husband: erm ... no comment / I felt quite close to some people ... most of them left SL quite long ago tho ... I never partnered in SL and I'm pretty sure I never will ;-)
  5. First SL Job: dancer at Sanctuary Rock ... I send an application to the club sometime in October 2007 with this pic ;-)
    ... and a while after that I started my own shop 'LoonAtic Wear' with renting this cart ;-)
    The beginning of LoonAtic Wear ... and Troy,  a very close friend, who supported me a lot :-)
    I had lots of fun creating clothes and nonsense ... but it's on hiatus since more than a year now, exists only on the marketplace with my old stuff and as sponsor at Sanctuary Rock  ... I just don't find the time for it anymore ;-(
  6. First SL Creation: I think I started to create within the first week ... spent a lot of time in 'Dreams' a very cool and big public sandbox ... but I don't remember what exactly my first creation was (beside the wooden cube) ... but among my first creations was my hair, nose and belly piercing ... and little devil horns for Bry and me as seen in this pic taken at a club called Little Britain (omg ... look at those textures ... and my amazing photo-shooting skills ... hehe)
    ... or one of my first dresses ... I was darn proud of the glimmering and shimmering effect it had when dancing ... too bad you cannot see it in the pic ;-p

  7. First Encounter with a Linden: I never talked to a Linden, but I saw some at Sanctuary Rock ... guess they were checking how much lag an average club visitor can bear ;-) ... I even took a pic of the first Linden I saw ... a 'grid-gardener' ... but I think I deleted it as it wasn't that spectecular ;-P
  8. First Encounter with a SLebrity: I don't care much about celebrities in any life ... I prolly wouldn't even know if someone is a 'celebrity' in SL. Whatever ...
  9. First SL Sim you fell in love with: I don't know if I ever 'fell in love' with a sim (prolly not) ... but the first sims that were important to me were 'Bali Hai' cause it was kinda home for 'homeless me' for quite a long time ... and 'Dreams', the sandbox where I spent so much time creating nonsense ... and I think I let it crash several times with my 'skirt-generator' ... hehe
  10. First SL Blog Post: Totally unspectecular ... lol: Welcome on Oct. 15, 2008

At 'Neva River'

I had seen it mentioned in a few posts and when I read on Neva's blog that there's a photo-challenge, I simply head to go to the Neva River Sim and give it a try ...
And OMG ... what a sim ... I even had to go there several times, spent ages there and filled my hd with pix ...
Too bad that Neva River closes for the public today ... I would have loved to do some filming there too ...
Anyway ... here's a slideshow of a selection of the pics I took ...

and if you wanna see more pix of this amazing sim, check out the flickr group for the contest here

Berry made me procrastinate !!!!

Well ... I actually have quite a list of stuff to do ...
pleasant (like finishing a movie clip I'm working on for a while now, playing my bass, finishing a flyer(that one's pretty urgent)) ...
and unpleasant (darn tax stuff and better not even mentioning darn housework)
But Strawberry Singh made me procrastinate all that and answer a couple of questions instead ;-)

1. What is the rez date for your current SL Avatar that you use most often?
March 1-2007

 2.  Where was the first place you made friends as a newb and got to know people in Second Life?
On a sim called 'Bali Hai'. As far as I remember I got there because I saw the name Anakin Gallacher in an event listing, when I was searching for concerts. I thought it was an interesting name ... and I like listening to Sax-music. It was in the first weeks of my SL-Life and I was quite bored of SL, didn't know what to do there and almost ready to finish my short SL-Live. But the concert was cool and as I didn't know where else to go, I just stayed at Bali Hai ... I met my a first friend there, a nice dutch guy, actually the only person from SL that I ever met in RL too (me waves at Boss) ... and I spend quite some hours there cleaning windows, sweeping the floor and gardening (aka camping) ... and thereby earning my first Linden$ ... ah ... those memories ;-)

  3.  Where do you spend most of your SL time now?
I'm not as often in SL anymore as I used to be ... But I still keep doing my 2 hosting shifts at Sanctuary Rock (kinda the only time I talk to someone in SL now) ... Try to do a PhotoHunt every monday (that way I get to see quite interesting places )... or build nonsens and scenes for my pics and machinimason my parcel.

  4.  Who is your closest friend in Second Life? (only pick one)
There've been 2 persons that I felt very close to, but both left SL long ago. To one of them I talk everyday via msn still tho ... but I never felt that close to anyone in SL anymore, I became a kind of loner, but I enjoy talking to all kind of nice and interesting  ppl at Sanctuary Rock ... and of course I love to push around Rudh (my fav actress) for my movie clips ... ;-)

  5.   What is the most favorite thing in your inventory? (only pick one)
erm ... I got no idea ... I guess that changes with the mood ... 
maybe my hair, cause I made and scripted it, and tho it's far from perfect, posh, realisic looking or whatever ... it's kinda unique and something that makes me ME ... *grins*

  6.  The last thing you purchased in Second Life?
[AL] Promo Bare Tip Toe Foot - Foot Attach  ... I needed it for my 'Single Frame Stories - Edge' pic

  7.  What color clothing does your avatar wear most often?
Black/Grey ... and some green is cool too ;-)

  8.  Do you prefer to walk, run or fly?
I prefer to tp ... ;-) ... or I cam around till I find something I can right click/sit on ...

  9.  What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done in SL?   
I'm not sure if there's really anything crazy you can 'do' ... crazy things usually just seem to 'happen' ... guess I stick to simple fun

 10. Who would you like to play YOU, in the movie of your SLife?
Milla Jovovich  
tho she might be too cool and too good looking ;-)

Darn Sh.......... !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why, damnit, why do they close the services I like ?

I'm not very demanding ... 
when I have something working well for me, I don't need changes, updates, new stuff and whatever shit every few weeks ...
Updating, reinstalling, readjusting ... it's all a PITA

But the worst is taking my beloved stuff, which I got so used to, away from me ...
MSN will close in April ... Scheisse !!!
They say ... use Skype .... so I tried Skype and I think it's crap, well ... at least I don't like it ...
And now I get told that Google Reader closes in July ... Scheisse !!!!
Find something else, they say ... so I looked around for something new ... most of what I found, I didn't like ... and now I tried 'The Old Reader' exported my abos from Google Reader ... imported to 'The Old Reader' and got the message:
 'Thank you for uploading your OPML file. We will soon start importing your subscriptions, which might take up to several hours depending on the amount of feeds you have.
There are 25696 users in the import queue ahead of you.
Great !!!
OK, maybe I should have waited some days till the first run is over ... but what I've seen so far doesn't make me happy anyway ....

So  right now I need something to brighten me up, cause I don't want to spend my precious weekend with bad mood ...

Always a nice idea is trying silly stuff ... 
Rudh had found, tried and posted another SquareFace-Icon-Generator ...
I couldn't resist messing with it myself ... 
So here's another SquareFace Loony ;-)

and now I'm kinda blind, cause I looked too long at that page with all it's super bright colours ... got dots dancing in front of my eyes ... 
Guess I better shut down the pc for a while and have dinner ;-)
... and tasty food kinda helps with the mood too ;-p

My 7 SL Facts ... kinda

well ... I saw this on several blogs, like Rudh's, Dondo Dollinger's, Alicia Chenaux's, Deoridhe's, ...
but it was started by Strawberry Singh ...

You're supposed 'to share seven facts about your SL avatar or your SLife that may or may not be obvious to all your readers'

O... K ... ........ tho I don't have many readers, I thought 'Let's be a Lemming and try this'

Fact #1
I'm stuck with my first avatar since March 2007 now ... darn ... that's 6 years now ... I'm kinda OLD ..............

Fact #2
There have been several times where I was very close to quitting SL, due to some collisions with RL or rather some RL problems that extended into SL ... or maybe I was just fed up in general, but I guess that's pretty normal

I'm still here .. erm ... there ... erm ... whatever

Fact #3
I don't like shopping ... I'm not even into fashion ... in neither life actually ;-)
I wear the same outfit almost every time I log in ... same skin, same shape, same hair (with changing colour and punky version tho)
So I only shop when I don't have the time or the ability to create stuff for my events at SR or my pics and machinimas.

Fact #4
Even after 6 years in SL I still cannot walk, run fly or drive properly ... I walk into walls, fall from cliffs, run over ppl with all kinds of vehicles, crash planes, hang glider and flying carpets ........ but I swear, I'm not drunk ;-p

Fact #5
I love planning stuff for the place I've rented, but so far I've never completed any of my plans ... ;-)
a few weeks ago I moved to a new place (1024 m2) and a few days ago, I was able to rent the 2 neighbour parcels as well (512 + 1344 m2) ... so I'm proud to have 2880 m2 and 658 prims , beach and water for my silly ideas (YaY ... mirrors of SL, here I come) ... *grins*

Fact #6
I'm not very social ... usually I just stand on my parcel, messing with terraforming (desaster), stuff for pix and clips ... or preparing for my events at SR ... or worse, I just stand around while fighting with blender, gimp or power director or try to do a blog-post ;-)
I'm not into that family / relationship stuff ... and I usually just scratch my head about some dramas that I hear/read of ;-)
Funny enough, I love to host at SR, which includes some talking ...
But beware, when I'm in the right mood, it can be hard to stop my talking nonsense ;-)

Fact #7
Except for my appearance and my ability to fly,dance and teleport ... there's hardly any difference between SL-me and RL-me, I think.
So I see my SL just as a creative add-on to my RL ;-)

(extra fact: ... I'm a bad writer ... or rather no writer at all, please forgive me)

Looooony! Did you oversleep?

that was a message from Than on my facebook account ...

yep ... that's how I prolly looked in RL too this morning ... lol

what a way to start a day after a super short night ... lol
I had set my alarm to 6:03 ... 
and when I woke up and looked at the clock it showed 6:52 ... 
only 8 minutes left till the start of my shift !!!!! DAMN !!!!!!
and I sure didn't want to miss a shift where Sundevildaddy was my DJ ...
so I gotta send big 'THANK YOU's and *HUGS*s to  Micheal Veriander who was already ready hit the stage and cover for me (actually a second time already that day, but that's another story ... hehe), but let me have my event ...
and to Than, who sorted it all out for me ;-))
to my DJ SDD and my dancer Violette, who helped me get into a party I was so not prepared for ...
and to the great crowd at Sanctuary Rock, who rocked with us in a fun party ;-))

And now I'm off to have a serious talk with my alarm clock ... cause tomorrow I sure don't want to oversleep on the first day in my new RL job !!!!!

Single Frame Stories - Block

I think, therefore I am ...
but what am I, who am I, why am I ...
darn ... thinking hurts ............

Check out all those other prompts and cool pics for the Single Frame Stories (blog and flickr) !

The last days I was forced to think about something, to make a decision which quite affects my future (RL) life ...
and tho it was the choice between 2 rather positive possibilities, the  'thinking' made my pea-brain (and my belly) ache ...
Finally, after discussions with friends and family and rather bad sleep, I kicked my butt, pushed away the darn grey block of self-doubt and lack of confidence and made a decision ... maybe for the easier way, but I think it's a good one.

Single Frame Stories - Almost

Almost there ........... aaaahhh noooo ... waiiiiiit ............. !!!!!!

guess that comes  with the age ... tho it started really early with me  ... 
first you forget a lot of more or less important stuff ...
and then you remember it in kinda the wrong moment ;-)
at least I didn't forget the Single Frame Stories this week, tho I'm almost late ...

Talking of age ...
Today Linden Lab reminded me of something I haven't thought of in almost all of the recent years ...
REZDAY ... the 6th !!! ... darn ... now I feel really old ... THANK YOU, LL ... lol
Anyways, I won't let pass by a chance to eat some tasty cake ... nom nom nom ...
So do I have to get ready for the seven-year itch now?

Single Frame Stories - Edge

I should rather be dancing on it ...

I know, I know ... not much of a story ... rather a description of my mood sometimes ...

Besides that ... the preparation of the pic involved lots of edges ... so a whole story in itself, including fight, despair, hope and even a kind of happy end ... 
I messed around in Blender and finally, after several setbacks and quite an amount of time, I managed to create a mesh knife and it's matching textures ... YaY

It's far from perfect, but I think it won't be my last mesh-object.
I'm very grateful for the tutorials I could find on youtube ... and especially on the Machinimatrix-Blog.
Creating the pose was rather edgeless tho ;-)
And darn ... now I have even more silly ideas in my pea-brain, not just pics and machinimas ...
Can someone hand me some extra hours every day?

One more Erika & Imdy Reel

 'and now it's tiiiiiime ... for torture' ......

My harddisk is full of snippets and clips of singing DJs ... 
of UC, for example, who is famous for his serenading ;-)
But this time I thought it's time again to do a 
'Best of DJ Erika and DJ Imdy singing' ... 
once more ;-)

captured during several events at Sanctuary Rock in 2012 / 2013
It's always so much fun to have both of them around ... and even more precious, as they aren't my reg DJs anymore, but jump in now and then to cover.

THANK YOU girls! 
... ERIKA and IMDY ... 

Enjoy ;-)

Single Frame Stories - Climb

Climb?!? ... she had hoped for an easier way out ...

Darn ... it's not nice to keep a lil mermaid trapped like that ... but at least they didn't put her into a dry dungeon ...

What's your pic for the Single Frame Stories?

Peaceful Photohunt

After I had missed last Monday's Photohunt, it was good to be back hunting today ...
We were sent to a little 'peaceful' sim, FaeryDreams, and supposed to come back with a 'peaceful' shot.

The atmosphere was very peaceful there, and as I got a new dsl-modem at home, which does an awesome peaceful job, I could relax and peacefully go thru a lot of windlight settings and DOFs and such, while even my son was peacefully playing LOL via the same modem ...
YaY ... Mondays will be a lot more peaceful from now on ;-)
Somehow I could peacefully easy decide which of the 26 pics to upload ... 

and YaY again ... I made the 3rd place, prolly more by chance tho, as it was a close field of beautiful pics again ...
Paco and yeuxbleux shared 2nd price ... and the winner was Reema ;-)

as usual ... click pic to enlarge and enjoy ;-)

Next Monday is high time of carneval in some countries, I'd really like to go to a carneval sim, Venice or something ... a masquerade ... a ball ... whatever ... 
but I'll just get surprised by landmark and theme, as usual ...
Maybe I can see you there too, Monday, 11:30am (SLT) at the Photohunt Gallery ... 
Would be Cooooooool ;-)

Single Frame Stories - Switch

Do not even think of touching it .......

Well ... I'm actually glad there are ppl who still dare to switch me back into good mood when my own natural reset fails ;-)
I just wish I had a better ability to find that switch in some persons too ...

Hey ... I'm early for this weeks prompt 'Switch' for the Single Frame Stories ;-)

Single Frame Stories - Anonymus

Dear Anonyma ... my anonymus love ... bla bla bla ... your everloving Ano Name ........................ !! Shite !!

Writing a letter can be a darn  hard task, anonymus or not ...
and sometimes doing a pic for the Single Frame Stories can be tough too, cause often the story, that formed in my lil brain, just doesn't hop onto the canvas as easy as intended ...
Sorry ...

erm ... when will I find your SFS-pic?

UC goes Marilyn

There are days where I'm glad to have my Fraps ready in time when I enter Sanctuary Rock for my shift after UC's shift ... hehe
So I can present you the super cool performance of DJ UCBlack Legion going Marilyn Monroe ;-)

and as SL ... or my pc or my dsl-connection or whatever ... was trying to drive me crazy by hardly letting me talk in public chat ... and even IMs were pita ... kinda all weekend long ... and not letting me say a proper 'thank you' ...
I do it here now ...

... UC ...
 ... thank you thank you thank you ... 
for making me feel kinda like a loony president ;-)
you absolutely ROCK

Single Frame Stories - Service

Yep ... this service station must have been from the times, when I was young and they did 'full service' still ... 
says ol' Loony with broken voice, shakes her head as she puts the pic down with a slightly trembling hand ... grabs her rollator and turns to walks off ... 

.............darn ... I should have released the brake ...... 
................ could someone help me up, please .............

Out of Service here, I guess ... 

Good thing with getting old is ... you can still do pics for the Single Frame Stories ... ;-) 
So ...  where is your entry?

Ravages of Time

so I've been photohunting again today ... of course  ... it's Monday ...

We'd been sent to a pretty lost island ;-) ... 
spank me, I don't remember the name, but you can find it here (Beguile or something like that)
and the theme was Ravages of Time ...
As you can see, everyone submitted beautiful snapshots and Jewel(3), Cynthia(2) and Jana(1) as well deserved winners.

 Do it !!! ... I know you can do it ;-) ... Click pic to enlarge !!!

As usual I couldn't decide which pic to upload of the 46 snapshots I had taken ... lol
Especially as some pics that I like as they came out, didn't quite match the theme ...
My cam had been caught and distracted by the beautiful Roxy (ChrysTeRox) and her whirling dress ;-)

And as I want to save at least some pix from the cruel fate of getting lost in the growing pic chaos on my hd ... or even worse ... being deleted ;-)

here's a slideshow with my favs

Enjoy ;-)

and thanx, Roxy, for being a wonderful model without knowing ;-)

I found this on Rudh's blog and thought I might try it ;-)

voilà ... chibi Loon

I got no idea what 'Chibi' is, but I like playing with character makers
(did that before with Boulet's Squareheads)
Go to Chibi Maker and create your own chibi ... 
and don't forget to show it to the world ;-)

Single Frame Stories - Flight

I can assure you, Sir, we always come down ......

well ... she didn't mention how some planes come down, did she? ...........

My last flight was ca. 18 years ago ... it was quite nice, but I prefer to stay on the ground actually ...

On the other hand, I'd really would like to do a flight into space ;-))

Check out all those cool Single Frame Stories on blog or flickr !!! 
or even better ... JOIN the FUN ;-)

Single Frame Stories - Unplugged

... turn me up, I can't hear me ...

Yep ... that's quite me ... I'm Miss Clumsy in person ;-) ...
tho ... knock on wood ... I haven't unplugged me live that way yet ... what a nightmare ... lol ... 
this time it was for the Single Frame Stories 'UNPLUGGED' only ;-)

maybe I'll put a clip of RL-me playing 'plugged' a few days ago up here soon, if I get permission for publishing from my co-musicians ;-)
