Pinoy Hideout

Pinoy Hideout (click here for a raw shot)

I went to a new sim, Pinoy Hideout, earlier today to explore and look around. The sim was designed by the talented Neva Crystall. The owner of the sim is Lovelykitten Resident and there is also a photo contest for those that like to explore and take images.

Even though I have a somewhat decent computer, it took me quite a long time to get it all to rez, and even in these images, you can see that some of the ground textures are not fully rezzed. This happens to me in lots of places.

Then I logged in and went there using SL GO and everything rezzed right away, with no issues. Isn’t it funny that a mobile app works faster than my computer? I don’t know, I must be doing something wrong in my settings.

Pinoy Hideout

SL GO has recently started a “Refer-A-Friend” program. Anyone can earn $10 for every referral who converts to a paid SL Go subscriber. This offer is only good for a limited time, until January 7, 2015. I thought I would sign up for this program and share my link with you guys, but then realized that whatever money I earn from this will probably be spent on new shoes for me. So I figured instead of doing that, I’ll share Draxtor Despres’ link. He says the money from this program will be put towards the weekly Drax Files podcast. If you’ve never heard the Drax Files Radio Hour podcast before, click over to the site now and have a listen to some of them. They are very informative and help me keep up to date on all the events in Second Life and throughout the tech world.

Draxtor also did a little ad for SL GO recently which features himself and his son…and a Torley Linden right at the end! It was rather amusing as he played on the stereotype that SLers are all anti-social and don’t go out anywhere. Also, he’s got some serious skills on the skateboard! Click over to check out the ad on youtube, also embedding it below.

Ready, set, jump!

I’m trying to be a bit more social in SL these days and approaching people I admire to come join me on the blog. Ms. Hillany Scofield is one I’ve wanted to collaborate with for a long while. Not only is her face and avatar incredibly striking to me, but her pictures are so sensually […] Continue reading →

Murder Mystery

A few months back I did a book meme where I talked about books that I love to read. I mentioned a lot of book genres that I’m interested in but one that I failed to mention are murder mysteries. I actually used to be completely addicted to Nancy Drew and Agatha Christie. I have […] Continue reading →

Say Cheese!

I was so excited to see the Tee*fy Vintage Camera Collection for the Arcade Event. I think I’m going to have to wear one of these cameras in all of my photoshoots from now on. I wore one in the photoshoot this afternoon. :P I’m totally sporting the lazy photographer look. In these pictures I […] Continue reading →

Mirror Mirror

So I’ve been seeing a few people doing mirror images a lot recently, like this amazing one by the infamous Mr. Jefferson, and I thought I’d give it a try. I have to admit, Mr. Jefferson totally encouraged me to do it. He linked me to all the appropriate tutorials and even sent me the […] Continue reading →

Ever wonder…

“Don’t you ever wonder maybe if you took a left turn instead of a right you could be someone different?” Over the course of our lives we reach many pivotal moments where we make decisions that affect us for the rest of our lives. I too made many of those types of decisions. At times […] Continue reading →
