Look over to your right. See my Twitter feed?

For some reason, the Twitter feed function from SL is working to send text, SLURLS AND Photos, but the Postcard function doesn't send the photos.

It works maybe 10 percent of the time with Typepad, I can't get it fixed (it was fixed by LL for awhile, and broke again).

It's SUCH a chore to download photos to your hard drive, remember to save SLURLS manually, and texts, on a Notepad that you have to save, and then regroup all that later with an uploaded blog post. Too many steps for what it is, which is just occasional little posts about events.

 

So follow me on Twitter - @Prokofy

 


Ravenglass and SL Public Land Preserve Featured on "Designing Worlds"

This was quite remarkable! I was invited to show Ravenglass and SL Public Land Preserve on the "Designing Worlds" virtual world TV program.

The hosts are Saffia Widdershins and Elrik Riel and they do a remarkable job of rendering our world and its experiences. They are both professionals in RL.

Two corrections -- and the mistakes are entirely my fault.

First, the "Italianate" village that we land on in Carlisle that I say is "French or Italian or something" is actually SPANISH. Goddamn, Americans are so dumb. I've been to Europe any number of times, I even studied French and I see Spanish every day in New York but somehow I had "Italy" on the brain with those bright villas. You can tell from words on the stores like "La Lubina" (which means "bass" as in the fish bass in Spanish) that this is a SPANISH build. Also there's a sign for Estrella Damm, which is a lager beer, brewed in Barcelona, Spain. Details, Prokofy! I wonder if the builder (Lichi Moonwall) will be pissed off, but you know, he spelled the lager "Damn" on the sign -- maybe an inside joke? And he named the build "Paisaxe Cuideiru Backdrop" -- which is why I thought "French" -- not entirely unreasonable (paysage?) but in fact it's Galician for the phrase "Landscape Care" according to Google Translate -- which BTW is terrible for Russian and many things which is why you need to still hire live translators like me : ).

BTW, if you want to see what this build is SUPPOSED to be besides jammed into Prokofy's rentals, see this fashion blog or this one or this one. See what I mean? So far I have one very happy tenant here, though, check out the vacant ones, the Bellagio villa in the sky in marvelous.

SO then the other mistake I made that no one but one person will notice -- but that matters! -- the person who is a very frequent visitor to this sim who said it is "the most beautiful in SL" is NOT RUSSIAN. He's BELARUSIAN. And I of all people know this and I can't believe I stupidly said "Russian" like an ignoramus would. Well, actually, he's American now but his heritage is BELARUSIAN which is definitely separate from Russia -- and not getting that is like saying "the Ukraine" -- you just can't do that.

Here's a list of the locations you'll see in the show, both in the film part and the stills taken by Wildstar Beaumont, with the main builders and content creators noted -- but do come and visit and see everything first hand!

Ruthless Review and Editing of Redeux Gifts

SO, I'm never sentimental about free gifts at events, I think they should have less of them. I examine each one before I take it, then I still throw some out when I get home and unpack.


BTW among this batch you will likely see an earlier Redeux gifts round I didn't get to.

Tuliptree

This is Tuliptree, where I have 0.66/prim rentals but you have to have PAYMENT ON FILE. It's my one community that has that, where people can hide from abusive partners who make alts.

Tuliptree_001

So here's the Redeux loot, and maybe some other stray stuff.

Tuliptree_002

So here's a Roawen sub stump -- nope, I never put out anything like that. A sign labelling somebody in disgrace to humiliate them? No thanks! In the bg there you can see the best thing out of this bunch -- the flower rack. I will put that out at the Whispering Witches and get a better pic.

 

Tuliptree_003

This is from Myth, it did not make the cut even for motel art at the Flamingo.

Tuliptree_004

The rugs are ugly, but shelter/tent things like this I tend to keep for the camp.

Tuliptree_005

Spyralle had a Korean lamp -- there it is. Suitcases I collect or I'd throw this one out. I hate signs with words, and especially this Elizabeth Warren type stuff -- delete.

Tuliptree_006

Simply Shelby's butterfly I might toss as I don't like words but it's good for the Hippie Witch. Tiara's crown is great, a keeper.

Tuliptree_007

This wonderful. A nature mask. 30 prims. But I'll put it out at the Dryads' Retreat. F&M is the author.

Tuliptree_008

This is Shelby again -- a shelf that I can't figure out, can't understand where I could fit it, so it goes.

Tuliptree_009

The colour is what annoys me here.

Tuliptree_010

Spyralle's hair comb, I think from an earlier round, is a keeper and this Myth crown from this round is also a keeper.

There was a dandelion poofer too -- can't find it now, will keep.
