Dudes

It’s always nice to find good guy poses, and at Pose Fair this year Londenia Leistone of Ridic has released this guy-friend pose, named simply “Dudes Pose.” So I went in search of some of my favorite SL dudes, Leto and Steel, who are always fun to photograph. Since they also expressed appreciation for Winter Thorn’s Harvest Chairs,  I am including a photo of them sitting there, as well. Thanks to both of them for helping me out with these photos.

Attic

My friend Barely took me to this indie club one night about six months ago and there I met Leto and Steel, owners of the Attic and music spinners extraordinaire.

I’ve been to a few clubs in my time in SL, but this one is different. Leto and Steel as well as every other DJ I have heard play at the Attic are true music-loving (sometimes borderline fanatical) dorks who know their stuff, and I have enjoyed every set I ever heard there. Well, except for the techno-night. But still, there has to be the exception, right? The folks at the Attic are friendly and welcoming so if you’re looking for an non-presumptuous place to hear some good tunes, go sometime. Leto and Steel will take care of you.

P.S. If you are an American Horror Story fan, you’re going to like this place.

Reach for Me

Two of Luna Jubilee’s latest releases were perfect for this snowy day, and Winter Thorns’s sweet hot chocolate machine is waiting for us when we finally get tired of falling down on the ice!

New Year Meme

This meme from Strawberry Singh sounded like a good reflective-type activity for today, so here goes. Thanks, as always, to Bastion for showing up photo-ready to help me out today, although I am a bit miffed that he has a better hat than I do.

010614a

  1. How did you spend New Year’s Eve? At home, with my husband. We watched the New Year’s Eve broadcast from Spain, which always gives us new song and film ideas for teaching our Spanish classes.
  2. Did you keep any new years’ resolutions? No. I feel like I am constantly resolved on doing things and being a certain way whether it’s the new year or not.
  3. What was your biggest achievement(s) of the year? In real life, I built and implemented two iPhone games for my Spanish classes. I also presented the games at the national convention for the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. I know, achievement city right here. In SL, I moved my blog to this new domain. It was a big step, but I am glad I did it.
  4. What was the best thing you bought? In real life, my Alienware computer. I get lots of sidelong looks and questions about being a gamer, but I really love having a powerful computer. I have been creating a lot more visual content for my work and my new machine has really made a difference. And for SL it’s a dream. I also upgraded to Dropbox Pro. It literally changed my life. In SL? Probably my Maya tutorials from Leviathan Flux. I haven’t made anything yet, but I am learning so much!
  5. What do you wish you’d done more of? In real life, I wish I had been able to see more of my family. I am going to make that happen more this year—gasoline prices be darned.
    In SL, I wish I had talked to more people and gone more places. I enjoy the social aspect of SL but tend to hang out on my own rather than intrude in social spheres.
  6. What do you wish you’d done less of? In real life, not much. I worked a lot and played a lot and plan to do more of the same this year. I do wish I cared less about unimportant things. In SL, I wish I had not let my investments become unbalanced. I am working on that.
  7. What was your favorite movie you watched this year? There were two that I previewed for my Spanish Language and Culture class. One is called El Sueño de Iván and the other is called A Better Life. The first is delightful and sweet and the second is heartbreakingly sad. Incidentally, they both star the wonderful Damián Bichir.
  8. What did you do on your birthday this year? In real life, I sang the Verdi Requiem with the Boston Symphony at Tanglewood. It’s probably one of the more wonderful things I’ve done in life, period. In SL, I don’t remember.
  9. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned. You can climb every mountain, you can ford every stream. You can follow all the rainbows, but it’s no guarantee that you’ll find your dream. I try to forget that from time to time, though.
  10. What does 2014 hold for you? In RL I don’t know but I will be satisfied with health and employment. In SL I hope to learn to do basic modeling and improve my photography.

    Oh you got me intrigued by the Maya classes, I might have to look them up. Not that I am looking to getting into designing, but it may be fun to learn something completely new like that.

    Sounds like you had a pretty eventful and wonderful 2013, hope you get the same and even more in 2014. Thanks for participating. <3
