Major Living

Hey guys! How have you been? Even though I know February is a short month, it just FEELS shorter, you know? Last time I remember thinking about the month was right before Valentine’s Day. And now here it is, almost at the end of the month. This month I have started to slowly get back engaged into Second Life. Thank you to everyone who was concerned about me ^^ It’s funny because when we were talking, they would mention that they, too were taking a break or RL was keeping them from being in SL as much. But I guess because they are used to seeing me on, it was different when we kept missing each other.

I have noticed from social media (the bit that I have been on this month) is that there are a number of people who are having a rough time (or should I say continue to have because I noticed this in January, too). It’s sad because we can’t do much to help them except to support them emotionally. And let’s not give them a hard time because they can’t maintain their regular routine.

Recent Changes In Flickr and What It Means For Second Life Bloggers

Since the announcement was made on November 1st that there would be changes to Flickr’s Pro and Free account offerings ( Let’s be candid.), feelings of disbelief, anger, and concern have been expressed in the Second Life community. There is no secret that Flickr has been integral to promoting SL fashion & photography. I have even written a couple of blog posts in the past about the influence of Flickr on Second Life blogging, and my own struggle to get the coveted 99+ faves . After reading all of the chatter for the past several days, I decided to make my own comments on the situation.

MISS VIRTUAL UNIVERSE 2019 – Second Challenge Recap

On Friday, October 5, I attended the show where the Miss Virtual Universe candidates showcased their stylings for the second challenge.

I had some technical difficulties, and combined with Second Life logging over 90% of the audience and participants offline, I was not able to get the amount of photos that I would have liked.

To open up the show, Morgaine read various passages from Dante’s Purgatorio and Paradiso, describing the Zodiac and its 12 signs.

“And now see how from thence the oblique ring,
which bears the planets with it, branches off,
to please the world which calls upon them…” Paradiso X, 13-15

“O glorious stars, O light, that pregnant art
with mighty virtue, from which I acknowledge
all of my genius, whatsoever it be;
with you was born, and in your midst was hiding
he who is father of all mortal life,
when first I breathed the Tuscan air…” Paradiso XXII, 112-117

Carilynn O’Hare Tribute Fashion Show

Last night I went to a special tribute show for Carilynn O’Hare. Although I had never had the pleasure of meeting her personally, I did know of her, and I saw her at SL fashion shows and events. Even though the show was held at 6 PM SLT, there were over 90 people on two sims in attendance – something that I had never seen for that time of night or on that day of the week. In a time where models have come under fire for everything from having disproportionate shapes to not having that much of an impact on today’s SL fashion, it was honestly a good day to be a Second Life model. There was not only so much talent on the stage and in the audience, but to see the impact that one person had on a group of people was truly inspiring.
