Coming out to step forward
Wow. I really didn’t realize how long it had been since I had posted. I guess I better make this worth your time. The reason you’re here is probably related to the title or the tattoo. The title wasn’t intentionally misleading, for the hell of it. I just like being unpredictable. At the risk of offending a very select few, who were previously aware, I feel like I have to do...

TIYSL Style: How ˚That Guy˚ Rolls #1
TIYSL was never intended to be a fashion centric blog. For those new to the freak show you’re rarely going to get two remotely related post back to back. With that said, like my friend Raul, i’m serving a slice of style pie today. Eat it up. It is delicious. *noms* This appearance, of the potentially semi-regular TIYSL Style feature, is the result of a couple of unrelated motivating...
Hey Jude: One piece at a time
When I fist joined the WTFug staff, I expressed my disdain for the “I can’t afford to look good” excuse used by half the ugly avis on the grid. I proposed a new feature, called Corrective Action, with the initial focus being a blueprint for those who just don’t know the ins and outs of looking good on a budget. After consulting WTFug readers, fellow writers, and friends, I...
Teh Bunny nearly took my Second Life
That might be a slight exaggeration, but the bish did choke me. Who would have thought Bunny Brickworks, and myself, would wind up in the same pic fully clothed? Stranger things have happened….. I think. *adjust the ice pack, grinning, with the taste of blood in his mouth* Are you the Rabbit? by Marilyn Manson Battle by Gang Starr PS Comments are fully functional now, so...
SL Designer Tantrums (O teh dramaz!)
People like good deals, and free stuff? *GASP* People (in any world) feel a sense of entitlement? *GASP* Bloggers will lose their mind, and waste thousands, upon thousands, of words to “prove” their side of any issue is correct. *GASP* Context: A few residents (Faery Sola and Ziggy Quirk) have called for a ban on freebies. Ziggy’s post in particular is full of passion and...
The vainest of them all?
Guess that depends on who you ask. Oh yeah… members of a certain group chat don’t get a vote. *grins & plays his part* Click the pic. Page 59. Play your part (pt. 2) by Girl Talk Bananas, lady lumps, and Thunderstruck? What else could you want from a song?
We hate what you're wearing (update)
Seriously. We really do. Click the logo and find out why. In reference to a few IM’s I’ve received recently…. A. New pics coming soon. B. I am considering doing product reviews. Send me a well organized folder, including product, LM, and a notecard with relevant info. Be careful what you ask for.* C. I am considering doing SL photography for others. If I choose to do so it...
SL invades RL: Bats For Lashes
Who knew furries were into BMX? I didn’t until I saw this video. After watching what appears to be a Poetik inspired visual narrative, from the latest alt/indie/pop band, one has to wonder who else is hanging out in Second Life. Semi-related: There’s no word on what Hollywood will be calling the new pseudo-Machio, Jaden Smith, in the re-imagining (aka molestification) of Karate Kid,...
WTFug? NIN saves my Second Life
What did I do to deserve this? I walked the tracks in Rez before, but never considered i’d stumble across such a horrific train wreck. Tinies have always freaked me out, but this is next level. Even if I were to ignore the kazoo, goggles, bat wings, 14 shades of pink and pig avi….. why would she wear those shoes for boating? *smirks* Good thing Trent Reznor was there to help me...
Poetic Poetik and Colemarie Soleil
I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting the Rocker Faerie on the grid. I haven’t caught one of her in-world performances either. After stumbling across her her videos I plan on making a point of doing so. Colemarie Soleil’s latest effortlessly demonstrates savior faire through a remarkable fusion of sight and sound. Don’t take my word for it. Just press play.
Cheap Love Song: Second Life fashion gets a well...
The old adage is “you get what you pay for.” Admittedly, this holds true about 95% of the time. Well made clothing that actually looks good on a moving avi is the exception instead of the rule. When you find these diamonds in the rough they are typically made by talented designers that know they’re good, and it’s going to cost you. The metaverse is littered with poorly textured...
Jenn Villota's dirty word witchcraft
I’m back. *awaits thunderous applause* Let’s move on. This post is long overdue. About a month ago I stumbled across something both disturbing and truly amazing. I have a particular fondness for any form of expression that has real emotion attached to it. I’ll dispense with the formalities and copy/paste the testimonial I just posted on flickr. “We’ll never be...
A new beginning (stretch out my arms)
This blog started with little direction other than a reworked (yet unoriginal) concept. Writing from the perspective of a Tyler Durdenesque character is nothing new, but it’s outside the norm in the SL blogesphere. While over the top cynicism, and tongue in cheek humor is something I enjoy, upon further analysis some TIYSL content has taken a far easier shock and awe path. My subconscious...
Dance the end of the world away.
The next time you feel like pulling out your DCS/WARPS enabled hand canon, and blasting away a zombie horde, do some RP research. Re-imagining is all the rage with the latest incarnations of Halloween and Friday the 13th. Why not expand your role play horizons with a refreshed take on a Jane Austin classic. We’re going down in a bloody blaze of glory. Relax and enjoy it. Everything...
Gaga about my disco stick
I know her…. but an entire video about me? Obsess much, Lady? I’ll admit that her dedication to higher learning is intriguing… but “hold me” and “love me?” The beat is sick, and that ass is kinda thick, but you’ve got to do something abut that hairdo. Maybe i’ll let you cook me breakfast… but then you’ve got to go.
