Fireplace Envy

Oh how I wish I had a fireplace in my real life apartment. Or maybe one of those Swedish tiled stoves or any other kind of wood burning stove. I realise that using these on top of central heating because it's "cosy" isn't environmentally friendly, but I would happily trade in the radiators in my... Continue Reading →

Room with a view

For those of us who enjoy Second Life™ photography, the Backdrop City sim is a godsend. It does what it says on the tin: it's a sim full of backdrops . From the main landing spot you can easily teleport to the themed platforms and find the backdrop that suits your needs at that point.... Continue Reading →

Virtual Beach Therapy – Episode 12

For this episode of Virtual Beach Therapy I went in search of something a bit more rugged rather than tropical and thus I stumbled across Soul2Soul Highlands in the destination guide. The creator of this enchanting Scottish Isle was inspired by the landscape of the Inner Hebrides islands off the Western coast of Scotland and... Continue Reading →

Editor’s Picks 2

It was high time for me to do some quasi random exploring in Second Life™. I particularly like scrolling through the Editor's Picks section of the Destination Guide until I see something that tickles my fancy.

Another reason is of course that, even if your SL experience is an entirely wholesome one, there still... Continue Reading →

I semi watched and mostly listened to the light BBC 3 documentary Deep in Vogue the other day which was a celebration of the colourful, queer, emotional and political stories of Northern Vogue. In the past I had watched a couple of episodes of Pose, so I already was familiar with The Ballroom Scene, an... Continue Reading →

Virtual Beach Therapy – Episode 11

Last Friday I "officially" binge-watched a series on Netflix. I tend to pace myself and watch two or most three episodes in one sitting of any series, but I got so totally pulled in by the cuteness of Heartstopper, I simply couldn't stop watching. I was quickly catching feels for that little LGBTQ+ show with... Continue Reading →

The First Rule of Fight Club…

You do not talk about Fight Club. Oh, and on Wednesdays we wear jockstraps. Wait! I think I'm mixing up my cultural references here. Truth be told, I've never watched Fight Club. I do remember that iconic image of a shirtless, very lean Brad Pitt with a gang of people behind him. Surely putting everyone... Continue Reading →
