Naughty Me

There are few things I enjoy more than investigating a sim that is new to me. This is Verdigris, a heavily warped, steam punkish build of small shops and lots too see. I promise I will not grief, brandish weapons or bite while I'm there.

Rezzable Unrezzed

It's with great sadness that I have to report the passing of an era in Second Life.™ The Greenies are going home.

Near as I can tell, the Greenies first landed in SL around July of 2007. For SL that's a really good run. How many places in the virtual world disappear within months of their creation? Or the Avatars you've met that you never see again?

The folks at Rezzable who built this truly awesome sim have over the years opened many other wilder places, but the Greenie's Home has always been my favorite. Slowly they have been moving their stuff over to OpenSim. I can't say I blame them, it's very expensive to maintain sims in SL, and OpenSim is about a fourth cost.

They will be having one last blow-out on June 23rd before it all disappears to another metaverse. That's not a lot of time to get here if you've never visited, but it's definitely worth the trip. 

Party on Greenies, and good luck in your new home.

Philosphy and Light Houses

In the velvet darkness
Of the blackest night
Burning bright.
There's a guiding star
No matter what or who you are.
-- Richard Obrien

I was exploring the Blake Sea region of SL™ when a friend announced that SL™ was all about escape.
I'm not sure. It's true that for many of us, myself included, running around a virtual world is an escape from the pressures or dreariness of Real Life™.  But then there are escapes and then there are escapes.

Certainly if you spend time creating an avatar and running around in a virtual world you are taking a break from reality on some level. But does that necessarily mean your life is bad? I don't think so. Sure mine could be better, but whose couldn't stand some improvement? You the Elizabeth II is really happy in Buckingham Palace? Lindsey Lohan is happy with her millions of dollars, fans, and probation violations?  I really don't think Life (© God)  is all that bad myself.

On the other hand, if you are interested in the deeper conversations of Life, the Universe and Plato, I have a clothing optional recommendation. Rhiannon Dragoone leads discussions in classical Philosophy at http://slurl.com/secondlife/Philosophy%20Island/112/56/40 and she'd be happy to have you attend too. One of these days I'll get over there but I'm afraid it'll all be over my head.

And in case you were wondering, I think the light in the darkness of this reporter's Second Life, may be over at the Frankenstein place.

Strip Poker

The event: strip poker.
The contestants: Cal Kondo, Cain Odgar, and Zimmi Warwick.
The stakes: looser gets tied up and interviewed.
The results: the following interview.
The winner:  you!

After the game we dismissed to a nearby dungeon so that we could tie up our interviewee. After finding the proper cuffs we got her attached to a Saint Andrew's cross. My honorary photographer (who also chose to be naked) noticed that Cal still had her panties on, and suggested she remove them. "If you want the panties you have to take them," she told him. So Cain happily snatched away her last vestige of modesty in a ham-handed fashion, leaving her squirming.

Cain Odgar: Is making her squirm during the interview fair?
Zimmi Warwick watches as Cain teases Cal, "Oh, Interviews make lots of people squirm
Cal Kondo: I'll be brave.

So very bravely, Cal told us about herself, been in SL for years now, builds, runs a couple of businesses, and plays strip poker about once a week. " I don;t always loose.though…. Once. I was playing with a guy and he lost. I made him become a girl. And I dressed him, he was cute."  The vainly trying to pull her legs together while Cain snapped some pictures she explained her worst forfeit. " I had to find a guy at a sex club. He hid. He dressed me as a slut to start. I had 10 minutes to find him, then I had to be naked. Then I had to follow any requests I got...but I found him just after the 10 minutes."

Cal doesn't think she's a nudist, "I like clothes. I just adore taking them off."  Like other people I know she likes to be seen nude, but isn't really into the nude beach scene. " Well, when you do that. it's not sexual. but some people find it sexual. I don't want to be in those sexual situations. I like to tease. I like the erotic.I like all sorts of erotic things. Just not running through 100 animations on a sex bed in silence."

My photographer Cain seemed to be getting a little frisky at this point, asking her if she liked to be teased too, and who she had been hoping would loose the game. " I played the game honestly. I tried not to lose. I honestly didn't care. That's the fun of strip games. You do not know what will happen. no expectations. just see where it goes, and be surprised! No drama or emotional games. I love these sorts of experiences. I wasn't really expecting it today though."

You can find some of Cal's builds at Table Warehouse and Dakoira Cao Latex. And look forward to reading some of her adventures right here, as she's our newest Naughty Reporter.
