Beefcake: Broder Kubrick (Regurgitated)

I have to say that the Beefcake questions have not changed much since we started asking them, and frankly... we know they are dumb :P I guess that's the point. Some of our beef was kind enough to point out the dumbness too and for that, we thank you, as always :) Sexy and Helpful!

Beefcake: Ben Vanguard (Regurgitated)

Some of these recalled beefcakes were never given the opportunity to introduce themselves properly with a meat n' greet, but we're trying to rectify that now! Haha! I was wondering why they're names didn't just pop up when I started typing labels... well it's cuz they were only sidebarred before!

Here in all his SL Men glory... Ben Vanguard... we proclaim him "Geek for a Day"!

*Favorite Color:
Orange, and black, and white, and purple. Oh, wait! Red too!

*SL Rezzday:
10.18.2006 I'm not so old, but I feel old sometimes.

*Favorite animal and why?
Minks. For the contrast between their brutality and aggressiveness, and the softness of their fur.

*What factors did you take into consideration when creating your av?
Keep human proportions -- fantasy ones, but still human. Then I tried to work my shape to fit male clothing's textures without stretching (or shrinking) them too much, to show the best that I can on my blog ( the wonderful content that designers offer us!

*What's the most embarrassing thing you've done for a girl/guy/furry?
Well, nothing I could remember!

*What's the last book you read?
I read many books at the same time, jumping from one to another. For now, I have: "The French Revolution, a very short introduction," in English, to improve my language skills (god knows i need it!), and because a dear friend asked my advice for such a book, "Okinawa" a book about the healthy diet that inhabitants of a Japanese island have followed for centuries, full of recipes (I love to cook), and "Funky Business" by two Swedish management gurus, explaining why "human" has to be placed at the center of every business in order to have success ;-)

*What's a movie you could watch over and over?
"The Unbelievable Truth" by Hal Hartley; "Psycho" by, well, you know; and the whole filmography of Fran├žois Truffaut.

*You could never date someone who _____________ (fill in the blank)
opens his mouth just to show what a smartass he is!

*If you could trade slives with one other avatar for a day, who would it be?
A great builder! One who can create a whole universe with terraforming tools, prims and textures. I admire them so much, and I wish I had more sltime to actually learn to build, I mean it! Oh, I'm blown away by scripters as well. I'm such a non-geek. I would like to be a geek for a day!

*Who would you most like to collaborate with in sl?
With anyone on any project for which I have a passion. I love team work! What is funny is I'm more of a loner in SL than in real life!

*Favorite thing to do in SL?
Chatting with my friends, I'm still in SL for them. Running my blog, which is more than time consuming but still cool after all this time!

So we meet again, Grasshoppa!

Feels weird being back here on MGG2SL after almost a 6 month hiatus... but nevertheless I'm back betches - well, for the final week.

When Rosie & I gave birth to this dirty little bastard we had high hopes, expectations, ideas and dreams. Awww that *almost* sounds sugar coated. Hah! Little did we know that we'd have the cult-like following that we did in a year's time.

I can still remmy the first time I walked into a store, shopped and was almost instantly IM'd by the creator, "Don't be Mean Girling my shit!" Even now that tickles me. I honestly don't think I've ever come off as threatening, okay, mayhaps that ONE time. Geez!

In this post I was going to talk about what a bitch Rosie is or how big of a whore Laylah is, or even how Kitty is all about self-twat promotion... but decided why? Ya'll know this already, right?

I stopped writing for MGG2SL back in February sometime, I think. Mostly because my SL sweetheart & I became a RL couple (it's time consuming) and I pretty much thought I'd covered everything that needed to be said - But in case ya'll missed it, let me recap:
Whew! If you had done your homework, those wouldn't be new to you. Though it's always good to take a refresher course anyways. That's just my contribution. Orchid took on caLLie cLine with Advertising Diarrhea among other posts. Laylah did her whoring while posting Oh Snaps & other worthwhile reads. Rosie kept us all together & took on the role of therapist with Dear Rosie's. There has been many mean girls that have graced this blog over the past year and each bringing their own bit of zest. I am happy to have had the opportunity to call them my friends, even though really they are quite the bitches.

Though we are saying good-bye to MGG2SL this week - I'm glad to say I was a part of it and I hope to see new blogs that aren't afraid to be honest, don't always sugar-coat and say what everyone is thinkin anyways arise from our ashes. Cheers!

Beefcake: Jonny Dusk (Regurgitated)

Meangirls has been one of those blogs that was very much if it was your idea, then you were responsible for it :P It's with that philosophy in mind that I became somewhat of a Beefcake Wrangler, constantly looking for beefworthy pixels in order to appease the hungry mases ( I Joke!).

At times, Beefcake was the only thing that kept this blog having current posts, haha, we know! I wanted to re-introduce some of our favorites of all time so I'll be posting 1-2 of these a day! Spamming the Fashion Feed with Beefcake! I know! Just try to think of these as tasty lil meat commercials to break up the monotony of fabulous fashun :D

Without further adieu, I present to you Jonny Dusk ~Regurgitated~

*Favorite Color:
- Black ~Khan~

*SL Rezzday:
- 09/29/2004

*Favorite animal and why?
- Kyon (Greek for dog). Dogs live in the present without anxiety, and have no use for the pretensions of abstract philosophy. In addition to these virtues, dogs are thought to know instinctively who is friend and who is foe. Unlike human beings who either dupe others or are duped, dogs will give an honest bark at the truth. - Diogenes of Sinope

*What factors did you take into consideration when creating your av?
- What I think looks cool

*what's the most embarrassing thing you've done for a girl/guy/furry?
- Huh?? Normaly oblivious enough to forego the whole embarrassment thing I guess?

*What's the last book you read?
- Currency Trading For Dummies

*What's a movie you could watch over and over?
- Anything with entertainment or educational value. Like?.. Scarface or Half-Baked. Movie fan so I'll watch stuff till my eyes bleed.

*You could never date someone who _____________ (fill in the blank)
- asked me to fill in the blanks.

*If you could trade slives with one other avatar for a day, who would it be?
- The ones you would think, of admiration and such, probably get the same hassles as I do, so probably one of the lowliest nooblets, to once again enjoy the wonder and amazement of discovery and what not, before reality of functionality sets in.

*Who would you most like to collaborate with in sl?
- Anyone of likemindedness and interest in creating kickassery (honestly there's too many hotass designers and scipters to name)

*Favorite thing to do in SL?
- Logoff?

ROFLMAO uhh ok, probably building stuff >:)P
Dog out ~1!

Jonny Dusk: lol aight I'll get you a better shot, yeah that's my civilized look, normally have some face wrap and a cage on my head roflmao

Pop Goes the Weezel

Ok.. yeah I admit it.. Imma Mean Girl.. Always was and always will be. Come on People, we ALL have that streak in us somewhere, but its not the mean streak thats a problem, its how you use it. Some of us use it with finesse to enlighten others. Some use it to open the door for a well needed change. But there's those that use it for their own personal gain with no regard for anything or anyone outside their own twisted head So with that thought in mind I have decided to get a lil mean for enlightment purposes and expose those who abuse their meaness at the expense of others :P As a long time resident of SL I think I have enough experience in this area to warn fellow residents to this type of predator and my only hope is that these words can spare someone the agony of experiencing and dealing with them. First of all there are "real people" in here who are genuine and find places in our hearts..They are our True Friends and relationships we have with them are endless and boundless. We can talk about our RL's and share bad times as well as good times. Then there's those who use this place and the people in it for amusement at the expense of others. You WILL run into them and lets make sure you're well armed and can run them over when you do:P Let's analyse this a little deeper in case study form using a person we'll call Tiny Toon.. Tiny Toon is a desperate little man that honestly thinks he's all that and presents himself as such. He will start a convo with his usual charm making you feel like this is the 1st time he's ever done this. He may even tell you this IS the "1st time" hes met anyone as wonderful as you. He will take great pics of your avatar and make you feel like you are the sexiest and most desirable girl in here ( all the while hes doing this to 2 or 3 other chicks too.. and more prolly than not.. your good friends. ) He will play songs on his stream and say they remind him of you. Yes, Ladies the "woo'ing" is intense. In some weird way Tiny Toon has a hard time understanding friendships and the loyalties they possess. Valuing friendships seems to elude him and therefore he has no respect for any one else's friendship. He will use one friend against another, whispering half truths and his own point of view in your friends ears and when he does this to the gullible and lovelorn he succeeds and the result is the loss of a friend for YOU and a new victim for him. Tiny Toon lacks the maturity and masculinity to befriend another man, instead he finds fault in ALL men around him. He doesn't seem to have the emotional ego to share this place with other males. On the other hand Tiny Toon is VERY egotistical, when he's not telling you how sexy and beautiful you are, he's telling you how talented and wonderful he is. He sorta fills the whole conversation with his thoughts, words and opinions. He also hates hearing about your RL, especially the happy parts.. If you mention the nice dinner you had with your rl hubby or boyfriend you are accused of being insensitive to his feelings and asked not to do that again. Tiny Toon will however pass you notecards from other women he's currently flirting with in here as "proof" of how lucky you are that he's with you. In the beginning you are in awe of his prowess and intellect but after a while you open your eyes and start thinking "Am I ever right? Do I have any worthwhile thoughts? Why am I feeling hostility towards my friends? and Why cant I talk about my RL?:( This is when the problem starts. This is when you realize that the world he's created for the both of you is only meeting his needs. For a while you try and find what went wrong and you're told it's all your fault cause your not understanding or you take things out of context. In the beginning you 2nd guess yourself and even walk on eggshells around him, trying to be perfect so he will tell you those sweet, romantic things he used to tell you. What you havent realized or dont want to realize is ..He IS saying them.. only to someone else LOL. So Girls Arm Yourself before he strikes.. He moves from friend to friend like locust,, bad-mouthing everyone who even gets an inkling to his true motives. Stay close to your real friends.. Never let a piece of pixel cock come between you and them. I know SL is a playground for this preditor but the more people that are educated and aware of him the better off we all are.. This is PetMe signing off and remember.. Never be afraid to say whats on your mind.. even if its Mean :P. Those who love you won't be suprised and the rest.. well they'll get over it eventually :P

The Final Days

So, after staying wayyyyy too long at the party, it's time to wrap this blog up MG-style and move on and out. It's been a long time since the first blog post on MGG2SL. Since then we've had our ups and downs, seen people come and go. Blah Blah Blah... there will be plenty of time to wax emo at the end of the week :D

So, stay tuned this week for some great posts, insights, and best ofs from the gang at MGG2SL... We've got alot planned! But you never know, at the very least it will be a slew of tasty pixels as we roundup the best of beefcake. Just like it always was, right? Beefcakes + polls!

Buckle up tight and enjoy!

Oh Snap! The Shoe Expo Edition

Okay most of you by now (ESPECIALLY if you're female) have heard that there's this little thing called the SL Shoe Expo going on right now. If you haven't been there... GO!!!!! If you've already been or want to go later, stick around and read.

The event was put together by Phoenix Chapman (whom we actually ran into while we were there) and it's for an extremely good cause. It's also a great chance for bigger brands and smaller brands alike to interact and get noticed by patrons. I know we ran into a bunch that we'd never heard of so it was great to see all the incredible talent.

On the other hand, we also saw some things that should probably have been left in the respective designer's inventories. If I put all of them into this post it would take up 3 pages, so Kaedy and I managed to narrow it down to the weirdest of the weird.

The Whole Frikkin Store?

Guen: We get it, you're proud of your work. But at an Expo you only put up a small selection of your stuff for us to see. If folks like the selection you show off there, they'll be more curious to browse your things at your main store. No point in clicking on the landmark tack in the middle 'cause all the product is RIGHT HERE.

Rainbow Garden Weasel

Kaedy: "Guen! C’mere! You have got to see these! LMAO!" Footwear Fashion meets the Garden Weasel. All I can say is I have got to get me a pair of these! These will make my job of planting my spring bulbs 1000% easier.

Stolen from Grandma's Closet

Kaedy: Over the hills and through the woods, to grandmother's house we go. Yes that’s right... the latest in fashion footwear! Quilts on your feet! For those of you interested in recycling, here is a great at home craft project for you. Just cover those old worn out stilettos with your grammies old quilt, throw on some plastic jewels and you're ready to go. Go to what? I haven’t got a friggin clue. All I do know is that I wouldn't be caught dead there, and since I’m already dead...

Um... Where's the Shoes?

Guen: Okay... the booth itself is great showing off beautiful landscaping (most of it by Botanical) but... where's the product??? You may have to squint and hold your tongue just right to look, but there -is- actually 2 sets of boots in there. I'd suggest next time not using your entire prim limit on presentation.

New Level of Blingtard

Kaedy: As if bling wasn't bad enough, what would have been a really nice pair of sculpty pumps has been ruined by the addition of a "sparking particle" emitter! Not Sparkle.. Sparking! OMG every bimbo in SL is going to be wearing these. We’re going to need a new gesture...

Guen: The photo doesn't do this pair justice. You just have to see them for yourself. Yes they really do sparkle... a lot. Bling is annoying. Particles are annoying. Put the two together on a pearlesque pump and you got... SUPER ANNOYING.

Kitteh Wedges

Guen: Okay I understand these were made solely to give proceeds to the ASPCA charity, but I have the suspicion that if these weren't for charity they'd never be purchased. I'm sorry but this is a whole new level of FUGLY. Making them Transfer Only is ironic, since after buying them you'll be trying like hell to give them away.

Kaedy: And what better way to support the ASPCA than to stuff your foot up some poor unsuspecting cat's ass. Poor kitty.

I will say that these examples are only a small portion of the shoes you'll find at the Expo. Many more designers have brought incredible footwear to this event that's worthy of being purchased. I know Kaedy, Rosie B and I are much lighter on Lindens after going to this thing (and we're all probably going back for a second trip) so please do check it out!

An MG Blawg Post Series. Views on fashion, faces, and unfortunates combined into one general consensus.

If you see something you'd like us to Oh Snap! Please send the pic(s) with full perms to Guenevere DeCuir or Kaedy Ferraris in world.

No Kaedy... you can't take the big shiny shoe home with you...

The Internet Badass

You know what, I might be new around here, but I am not new to the intarwebs. I'm not new to virtual communities of all types, and I'm not new to the very old idea of the internet badass.

Since we've got a couple that lurk around here leaving superduper intellectually stimulating comments as "anonymous" because their secret internet celebrity identities are TOP SECRET, I thought I'd make a comment of my own.

The funny thing is, since I am a contributor here I get to have my comment on the front page, and since I'm not a chickenshit, I won't sign mine "anonymous."

The opinion of someone who needs to troll along to a blog and post a comment without an identifier of who they are, virtually or realistically, matters to me about as much as whether or not my neighbor's dog has a pimple on its ass.

The problem with the unfortunates who delude themselves into a position of superiority from the comfort of their adjustable desk chair and 19" monitor, is they think everyone else is going to think they are SO. COOL. AND. SMART. AND. ULTRA. HOT. AND. AWESOME.

Not really.

Only about as relevant as a pimple on a dog's ass.

Now then, on with the highly intellectual discussion! Be sure to bring up the nazis, whether or not I misspelled something, critiques on my use of punctuation, short sentences (for emphasis), degrade me, belittle me, and throw in something completely unrelated but derrogatory and fictional about me in order to further discredit me.

So mote it be!

PS: If you're an internet badass in SL this probably applies to you, too. Hugs and kisses.

You find the weirdest stuff at Yard Sales

I've been racking my brains for a couple of days now trying to think of something interesting and thought provoking to write about and while walking around a yard sale today it suddenly hit me. Well maybe actually I hit it. I walked head first into a fighter plane. Ok... nobody ever said I was graceful. Anyhoo.. it got me thinking, a dangerous proposition, not only can you find some really cool stuff, but there is some weird ass shit in yard sales.

The first yard sale I went to is AJ Industries Resale Outlet. This is a really cool, full sim yardsale where they buy items from people either individually or in lots and as the name says "resell" it. They have a lot of fantastic items at really great prices there, but also... some stuff that just makes you say "huh???" Here is a list of just a few that caught my eye.

Modern living room sofa and matching chair in chrome and the hottest pink I have ever seen in my life... The kind of pink that makes you see funny colors even after you look away. I'm dyin' to know what the designer was thinkin here.

A bedroom set complete with sex animation bed, blanket trunk, 5 drawer dresser and wall art all covered the aforementioned pink. But not just plain old pink, nuuuu. Friggin PINK BUNNY HEADS!!! This ensemble would make even Heff cringe. A word to the wise, a setup like this and you will be destined to be single forevah!

A totem pole. Ok if you don't have one of these, now is your chance.

Tons of baby furniture including a matching set of his and hers cribs and changing tables... Um, ok... first of all SL babies don't ummmm poopoo... so why the changing tables? Second of all, SL babies don't grow, so they couldn't have outgrown their beds. What happened to the kids? Inquiring minds wanna know. Did they crawl away from home or did Mom and Dad just lose interest now that they don't have that annoying tummy talker squalking to everyone within shouting distance "Hey Lookie Me! Im Preggers!"?

A Not So Fresh baked cherry pie! Who cares how long its been sitting around! Its pie for cryin out loud! Gimme a fork! What no forks??? Well there was a copper spatula sitting right next to it.. when you're in a pinch...

A Kitchen sink. Yes this place has so much stuff that they even have the kitchen sink

And finally... this is one I couldn't believe when I saw it. A bridge! Not a cute little oriental decoration type bridge, you know the ones with the rock garden and banzai trees... but a Sir Lancelot riding his horse over the moat big damn bridge! Just exactly does something like this end up in a yard sale??? And where the frig is the castle?

My second outing led me to Fehlzgud Shopping mall. A yard sale dedicated to SL designers. Some of the items here on the pricier side, but if you're looking for a unique piece of art for your house, its definitely a place to check out. There is some awesomely cool stuff here and some stuff that had me laughing so hard I nearly wet myself.

The first things I stumbled across were the largest grasshopper and scorpion I have ever seen in my life.. what you would do with these I dunno.. maybe hide one in your bed to scare the crap out of your significant other?

I also found a good old fashioned flying saucer type spaceship that you can actually ride in. Not to pricey, but I have no clue where to go flying saucer flying. Is there an SL club for that? And right next to it, a hot air balloon. Now I thought that looked like fun, just for bopping around my island in, but I'm sure my tenant who has a sky box at 600 feet wouldn't appreciate me hovering around outside his windows. O.O

And the strangest thing I found...

Yes this is a toilet with an aquarium in the tank. Complete with fish.

I nearly died when I saw this and thought it was so hilarious I had to show my hubby stupidly thinking he would think it was the most ridiculous thing he had ever seen.

It wasn't. He thought it was WAY COOL!?!?!?!

We now own a toilet with an aquarium in the tank... that will teach me.

Have some fun and check these yard sales out. You may find something your SL life just wouldn't be complete without!

SL Lunchtime Poll Results: SL5B

Meat 'N Greet: Mopsa Soon

*Favorite Color:


*SL Rezzday:


*Favorite animal and why?

I've got a crazy fascination with birds of prey. (I know you said animal and I come back with bird. But its a cool bird.) The peregrine falcon is probably my favorite. They are travelers. Survivors. Wanderers. Powerful. Fast. Cunning. They mate for life and take care of their own. At all costs. That sort of resonates with me.

*What factors did you take into consideration when creating your Av?

I took into consideration that my friend Tara Tagore (of Melino Style) believed my (former) av looked like shit. She taunted me religiously until I let her give me a makeover. I took her creative direction a bit further. I wanted an edge. I didn't want to be your typical muscleheaded av. But I also didn't want to look like the sole survivor of the apocalypse. I hope I achieved that balance.

*What's the most embarrassing thing you've done for a girl/guy/furry?

I don't need anyone to embarrass myself, that's for sure. So I've never embarrassed myself FOR anyone. But when I was a (relative) n00b I did have an incident with a girl. I'd never used any prim attachments. This girl was taking her clothes off so I decided to join her and without realizing it I threw my junk on the floor. And then instead of picking it up, in my panic I turned it blue. There I stood, staring at her, nekkid with no parts and a blue peen on the floor. She logged.

Between that and the backflip I did the first time I was with my (current) partner, I've had (at least) a couple of shining moments.

*What's the last book you read?

A Wolf At The Table by Augusten Borroughs. It ripped me open. As a long-time fan of his stuff, I expected a completely different experience. But it was still brilliant.

*What's a movie you could watch over and over?

There are many. Probably Blade Runner.

*You could never date someone who___________

took herself or her av too seriously. Or didn't have a wicked sense of humor.

*If you could trade SLives with one other avatar for a day, who would it be?

no one. I am pretty happy with my slife. I mean maybe there's a builder or a rich perv-maker like the strokerz guy who out-do me in the accomplishments department. But my low-key, low drama, simple existence is full of great friends, fecking hilarious banter, music, laughter, and real connections. I'm not interested in trading.

*Who would you most like to collaborate with in SL?

hmmm Probably my girlfriend Noirran Marx. I like the way her head works so much, she makes me feel more creative just by osmosis.

*Favorite thing to do in SL?

Hang with Noirran. She's pretty amazing. I'm a lucky kat.
