The X Button and You!

I'm sorry but I am having a hard time understanding this:
As reported by WTF Srsly
Two Belgian newspapers (De Morgen and Het Laatste Nieuws) reported today that the Brussels Court will work together with the Federal Computer Crime Unit to "patrol in Second Life" because of a virtual rape case with a Belgian Second Life user. Brussels police is currently investigating this case and says "It is our intention to find out if a crime has been committed".

How is this possible? I know, okay I think I know, that rape role-play happens in SL. I've never seen it or been involved in it but have heard that it does indeed happen. My understanding was that this was a form of role-playing a couple's sexual fantasy. I never in my wildest dreams could have thunk it to be one-sided and not have both active participants. Alas, I am mistaken. Apparently a woman against her will was raped in SL?

Here's a few things I'd like to point out:
  • What language of text was she raped in? Do they speak Begianish? What do they speak there? Is it French?
  • This was text right? Is not everyone equipped with mute & X-out options or am I just lucky?
  • Rape is a serious thing, in RL you'd fight your rapist, correct? How would you fight in SL? Ahem, this goes back to uhhh, logging out to get away.
  • When did we start treating virtual crimes as "real" crimes? Aren't we safe behind our terminals? Oh the noes!.
  • Are we really in need of policing when people are just plain dumb?
Like I said, rape is a serious offense in RL, but SL is SL. You don't need to know Kung Fu, self-defense, how to mace or thwart your attacker & scream "NO!" with conviction. It's easy-peasy... Just mute, report abuse, click X, or for advanced users Control Q isn't just for Noob gags.

REMIX: According to Vint Falken: what they were mainly doing was researching how they should react on crimes committed in virtual worlds. The newspapers brought the news wrong to have a story.
Thank you Vint :)

Advertising Diarrhea

The Voice Of ...

About a year ago Callie Cline was given the title of "Voice of Women". That's good, I just asked then as I as now - "What women?!" I know it isn't me, and most likely not any woman I know. And what does this voice say? Well its just not in my job description to sling quotes about. I will say that I've been less than impressed with the voice of women and that's probably because that voice didn't say a single thing that my voice would have said.

The ideal of women and cars is not new. As a matter of fact car mags have been slapping nearly nude women alongside pinstriped hot rods for years. Hell my first boyfriend and his friends used to buy Lowrider magazine just because the chicks wore more skimpy bathing suits. I know the mechanics behind it. Pun intended, by the way.

OMG did you Farce?

If you get a SL gig with a RL company - kudos. You've reached status quo - but when you get advertising diarrhea it really makes my ass burn after a while. Not to mention the fact that I'm running out of toilet paper so I've had to smear my shit here. There is a rather bold line in the world of grease monkeys and mechanics between a car enthusiast and a mere fan. I won't go pasting in dictionary definitions as I'm sure most know the difference. Car enthusiasts are the ones that really love cars - or a specific car. John Travolta is a car enthusiast (as well as planes), the writers for Car and Driver are enthusiasts, and mechanics as a whole are most usually enthusiasts as well. Callie, I'm afraid - is a mere fan.

The Thin Red Pinstripe

She states in her blog that the Solstic is a great car in RL and in SL. Her reason why its a better car IRL? Simply because its really fast. It goes to prove that you don't have to be knowledgeable about a product in order to be its spokesperson. It goes back to that whole 'ideal' I've been against since I was probably 11 "Stand there, look pretty, don't say much, and smile a lot." Its actually laughable. The Motorati thing started over a year ago - yet she was surprised that they chose her? Seems like advanced marketing for outsourcing if you ask me. She was definitely thinking ahead which is great! I'd love to have that kind of insight - but don't try to pass it off as coincidence.

Recognisable Faces

After conferring with fellow Mean Girls JellyBean and Rosie we came to the conclusion that the Maxim thing was because of Callie's recognizable face. That's very true. Her face is recognisable (then again I've been seeing it here and there for going on 3 years) but isn't it also true to say that any face you see repeatedly over a long period of time becomes recognisable? YadNi has a recognisable face - so why couldn't he throw on a female av and do such a thing? Maybe he could!

Objects may appear closer than they are

I personally just feel that the whole caLLie coNUNdrum has already been played out. Everyone's all freaking out that she's getting 'attacked' but how is stating an opinion an attack? Its anonymous comments - not a boot to the face. And seriously it isn't as if a few negative opinions really make or break a business deal unless those with the neg views are consultants.

We should all let her ride her train to fame for as long as her ticket is good for. And in SL (as I've already said) days are only hours long - and stuff like this lasts just as long. I would like to suggest though that if you're going to get someone to speak for your product who has any sort of influence at all: just be sure they know about it. I can safely say that if Mountain Dew came to SL and offered me to do something for them - I'd decline and send them to JellyBean. She's a friggin' authority on Dew. As a general rule, know your limits and there's nothing wrong with taking a back seat and merely knowing that by passing things up for the RIGHT reasons that you're doing something good as a whole.

Clutch Grinding

I've just been smelling burning clutch over the fact that once again things have come to who you know and not what you know. As a gear headed grease monkey I've just failed to see the appeal of having someone who makes clothes be any sort of figure head for a car. She sat on a few cars and make a few racing suits, I get it. But couldn't someone who used to or still .. oh I don't know .. build cars, race cars or know how to use a cherry picker actually get the kind of gig they deserve? I realize its a lot to ask of any company - doing all that hard research and all - but come on! I really just can't take Pontiac seriously (and I went through a lot of trouble to drop a 455 into a two bolt main 76 Camaro) after all this. All I can really say is "Meh".

*wipes her hands and wrench on a dirty rag and shoves it in her back pocket* Looks like your diesel engine needs new spark plugs.

We May Be Bunnehs but We're Not Soft and Furry

It didn't really occur to me that when I landed at Playboy I might automatically be taken for a working girl. Decked out in a Stellar short skirt and runned pantyhose, apparently I fit the bill for the Naughty Schoolgirl lookin' for a Head Master with a need to discipline. Asked by a friend to check out the new sim because neither of us had seen it yet, I went in totally unprepared. I had no idea that this opportunity would be ripe for a MG slam as well as fun with the girls.

This particular project, Playboy in SL, has been addressed before but after exploring the sim myself I just had to post my thoughts here. What comes to mind when you hear that Playboy has come to SL? Visions of the recreated infamous Playboy Mansion? Playboy Parties where the celebrities mingle around the pool? Bunnehs lounging all over... plenty to go around 2 to a guy? Yes all of this and more. Given the abilities and endless opportunites to do whatever you want in SL, you might expect something that Hugh himself would be proud of. Sadly, I can't imagine that anyone is proud of this. We all realize of course that Hugh is a lady killer. He could hardly be assed to personally ensure that his legacy was being properly respected inside a virtual world. But surely he didn't get to where he is by hiring half-assed people to perform mediocre tasks. This is yet the latest example of a huge company thinking that marketing in SL would be an easy way to turn a quick buck.

How does a virgin company ensure that they're properly portrayed in SL when they don't have any idea what SL is and how the community works?? My thinking is that maybe (I know it's asking alot)... just maybe... they spend some time researching the environment that they are planning to infiltrate. Overall, I really only liked that the shape of the island from map view is the classic Playboy logo... oh and there was a poseball group in the "Grotto" called 'Hef'. That made me snicker. Other than that, the whole sim is totally forgettable and, in fact, gives you that omg-how-embarrassing feeling as you explore. The build is willy nilly, the textures flat and amateurish. Not to mention there is just a cluster-fuck kinda feel to how the whole sim is laid out. And, I'm sorry, a "Drum Hill" with elven drums? This has to do with Playboy how? I'm not sure who the right builder would have been for this project, but you can bet I'd have found out if it was *my* project!

The main theme, obviously, centers around Playboy merchandise that you can buy to compliment your av (in world) or rl by going online. It's marketing... I get that. In this area, though, some research could help you realize that while it might be realistic to sell a diamond belt in RL for $950, there are no diamonds in sl and 950L for that is laughable. This would only be appropriate if this belt could not only look good (which it doesn't), but also rezz a magnificent mansion complete with waterfalls and lounging strumpets who would cater to all your fantasies and expectations of what it would be like to be a true playboy. So, I'm wondering. Did anyone actually shop in SL before deciding that the prices for apparel and attachments was in line with current market demand? Or did whoever was commissioned to create these objects/apparel simply take full advantage of the opportunity to work for Playboy to hike prices up thinking the general sl public would be stupid enough to pay for poor quality just for the glory of wearing a logo? Seeing large companies enter into the SL collective is an exciting thing. I'm sure there are many more to come. My plea is that someone on staff actually investigate or research,.. do your job! Find the right people to build your legacy in our world. Get out a little... shop, visit great builds, read a blog or something. This to me was like visiting The Edge for the first time. Playboy pictures plastering every available wall... fighting for prim space with poorly made merchandise.

In addition, I'm sure we can all imagine the outcome of placing a Playboy sim into our world. Doesn't this give every Ron Jeremy wannabe just what they have been looking for? Funny how ridiculous some people can be. Playboy sees sl as a web page... browse here to buy our stuff. Yet what a great opportunity for every horny guy/girl to think this is their big chance for some serious bunneh-style boinkage. Case in point: Mr Ron Jeremy look alike himself. I would almost feel sorry for this guy. That he chose to let out his inner playboy on the exact same night that the Mean Girls just happened to be looking for prey. But then he spoke and it was all magic...

“Playboy Pete”: you guys havin a party
Orchid Glitterbuck: All party all the time! Meow
Orchid Glitterbuck: My what a big cigar you have

Blingtard Pride?

Sad to say but our message doesn't seem to be getting through. In fact there's a group of bishes that are actually proud of their blingtardedness & snap themselves. I haven't added them yet to the Zilla album because they haven't tag themselves in the "tag" feature. Umm HI5!?! Normally it's nooblets that run around in bling because they think it's cool to be all shiny & stuff. These bishes know better yet bling anyways. Haha! Of course Luscious Pointe & Kalena Valentine do this for fun and are currently working on a Bling Bikini. :D

I present you... Luscious Pointe, Blingtard of the Week.

Keep sending those pics of random Blingtards to Snapzilla ( and tag them "blingtard".

Hit by the Fat Pack

I'm soooo tired of it!!! The fat pack, you see it everywhere! And used right it's a good thing. BUT!!!! I have been seeing more and more of it used for evil!... Yes I said it.. EVILLLLLLL!!!!! How can it be used for evil you may be wondering.. Well let me tell you!

Everyone knows what a fat pack is.. All colors in one convenient location.. Now you say "yay I can buy all the colors I want and not have to click/buy 20 thousand times!" Yes yes we all know a wonderful thing... But what about those designers who don't separate the colors.. So you HAVE to buy all the colors!?

Now you may be saying, "But Akasha, It's still a great deal and you get all the colors" Yes, but there are those.. *hangs her head* who don't like buying all the colors. Yes, it's true.. I don't like getting all the colors.. I have very few colors that I like to wear and that's it.. I don't want all the colors of the rainbow.. And no I'm not the only one out there. We may be few, but we have a right too! Why can't we just buy the color/s that we want without having to have the hole damn rainbow force down our throats? Now I would mind so much if they were transferable.. I love to share! But most of the time they aren't.. And I ask you why? Why can't I share with my friends or a passing Av? I spent my L to get it.. Why can't I share the rainbow?

Please!! Please!!! Stop the fat pack madness and just let us picky people get the colors we want!

(and just for you people out there who say something like "Akasha, stop bitching about it and just IM the designer" Yes that is one option, but wouldn't you agree it would be a lot more easier on every one's part if they just took a few mins to box the individuals for sale? Few mins of boxing would save a lot of IM headache and of course there are those that have chosen just to sell as is and do not wish to even sell individuals.. so there :P )

Hurt me again LL... Ooo shiny!

I don't know why this has taken me so long to start, but here goes.. SL, well more to the point LL.. WHAT ARE YOU PEOPLE THINKING OVER THERE?

This is something that has been on my mind for some time now and yet I have been quiet and sat back watching to see what will happen next.. MY GAWD.. You dorks brought back Ghosting!!!!!! That clinched it for me.. Yes my darling nooblets Ghosting (when you see an object or an av that really isn't there anymore) is not a new glitch.. in fact it is very old and something that I myself had tons of fun with.

This is a picture from Oct of 04 of a young Mr Leo Gillespie's ghost. Yes I said it.. O4!!! Jelly and I in our nooblet stage also were flying around and we saw him just hanging there so of course I had to say hi in my very own little way.

But this just shows how LL has become.. They give us something to look at *ooo pretty* and then break what they have already had fixed, and it hasn't been fixed for that long.. I have pics of fun times with ghosts up until some time in 05! Yes, we were promised so many things during that time and hardly any of them have yet to be delivered.. And the few things that were fixed *ie ghosting* are broken yet again! I guess the little distractions that LL keep giving us is just there way of lubing us up for the ass reaming they keep giving us. And not just ghosts *although that is my most favorite to play with* But invy issues and just over all performance of the grid it's self..

*bends over* Alright LL I guess I'm ready for my next ramming er update.

Sickeningly Sculpted Hair

I know I haven't muttered a sound in awhile, but now I'm back with a thunderous roar. Everyone has gone absolutely gaga over the new sculpted prim craze. Sculpted clothing, sculpted art, and even sculpted hair!?! Erm, sorry it's not working for me. Newp, not even a little bit. Fad is not fashion people.
Is it my pinkness? Too much hairspray? Have I not washed it for a month? Is it just bad hair? I don't like it. Now don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of Naughty hair, especially since the new pink tones were released awhile back, but I'm not feeling the sculpted mess. It's not just Naughty either, I'm not feeling the Curious Kitties sculpted hair either. I keep seeing Oooo's and Ahhhhh's spewed over every fashion blog there is. Consider this the collective Ewwww from those who do not sugar-coat SL fash (okay, really just my collective... but in my world it matters, shup!).
I know I can't just come on here & say "I don't like it" and walk away. That's just not constructive. So let me state the reasons why I don't like it. The textures look bad on sculpties, they don't flow right & give an awful appearance. I'm not completely sure this can be corrected because of how the sculpties are made.
The bangs on sculpties look like a massive clump. Naughty made one style using flexi prims as well as sculpties (Nicole - picture above on left). The best creations in my opinion will be hybrids (mixtures of alpha, sculpted, flexi, and textures). Naughty took a step in the right direction on this one but fell short on the over-all appearance of it.
In the long run, I think that everyone really needs to find their sculptie legs & not rush to get the product on the shelves just because it's a new feature. People like me end up getting left disappointed and out of Lindens. Why don't you try the demo Jell instead of forking out the 300L per style? Well, the demos DO NOT come in pink so there is no way of knowing until I actually put it on that it's bad bad bad bad in pink. *Sigh* I've never been much of a demo person anyways. I think I'm finally learning my lesson though after 3 years. Lala seems to think I need a Demo Intervention but hey it's just tmlw.
My plea to Naughty is to just take more time working out textures (preferably the pink tones) before releasing the new sculpted styles in the future. Please do not let the sculpties become the be all, end all. We loved the styles before sculpted, please make more. Thank you

The Internet Is For Porn!

A European parent-teacher group called Familles de France is apparently suing Linden Lab to prevent minors from signing up for Second Life, saying the grid contains “pornographic photos and videos in free access [where] users can mimick sexual acts, going as far as rape scenes, bondage, zoophilia and scatophilia,” according to a report on A court hearing is set for June 18, the site states. -PixelPulse Magazine

Who here doesn't know what the internet is for? (PORN) It's called the naked lady machine for a reason. Freedom of speech, digital and otherwise, has led to the internet being full of things no child should see. Net Nanny and other content watch programs have been created to try and curb their wandering little fingers.. but it can only do so much.

So – what do we do? Blame companies and games tailored to adults that have big signs saying “18+”? Sure.. and we sue them.. because we are too god damned lazy to watch our children.

This is a CLIENT SIDE problem... Meaning the problem is YOU, not the computer or the games industry. You people buy your kids R rated games full of violence and gore and turn your head away – what's it's only a game! But, by god, let some whore show her snatch and you're all up on that.

This problem of 'unwanted' porn can be solved very easily and in one step.

Here it comes...


Ever wonder why there are so many online predators? It's because the internet is a harvesting ground of children who aren't being watched. Little girls thinking and acting like adults – wanting the attention of older men. It's disgustingly common-place nowadays. If they don't find them online they'll find them elsewhere. You need to monitor your children ALL the time. No ifs, ands, or buts. No fucking excuses.

Who cares if you aren't the popular parent – at least when Chester the Child Rapist goes on a diddling-spree and kills off his toys you'll still BE a parent. Your kid will have been safely somewhere parent-approved and monitored by a trusted adult.

You're not there to be their friend – that comes later in life once they have grown up and moved out. While they are under your roof they are YOUR responsibility and whatever happens to them is YOUR fault if you don't watch them.

Yeah, ok, so it's a bit of a hassle to watch them – there are a million things you need to be doing like washing dishes, doing laundry, cooking dinner, making more babies so you can fatten your welfare check. So fucking what – You breed it, you take responsibility for it. Not enough time in the day, you say, for keeping an eye on your children? Well then, STOP BREEDING. There are plenty of contraceptives available today to curb this nasty little habit of yours; birth control pills, condoms, Depo, IUDs.. and plain ol' not fucking (I know, how horrible!) Can't keep your legs closed and refuse to use anything else? Well hop on by the Dr's and have him do us all a favor by sterilizing you.

Stop blaming everyone else for what you're too lazy to do. Stop expecting companies to take care of your crotch-droppings.

Agree or not – you've got to see the sue-happy trend that has been gaining in popularity for years. People, it has GOT to stop. You don't want this shit in your living room then turn off the computer, unplug it, and ship it back. No one is forcing you to be on the internet. Want it simply for educational purposes? Then make sure your children are receiving an education YOU approve of.
