K-Pop with me

K-Pop with me

Would you believe I ummm never knew what K-Pop was until Jonny from Paragon brought in the new Annie Jooz K-Pop dances?

I kid you not, I didn’t. Then I heard BTS sing Dynamite and saw the dances.

Well I’m now hooked.

I may drive you nuts for a while till I get over another obsession with some new dances. So here’s my first video of these.

Avatars are humans too

Avatars are humans too

I have set up my YouTube with a playlist specific for my Ramblings of a woman in her later years.

I decided that in all seriousness I don’t have that much time in my day to monitor duplications on all my social accounts.

Seriously who does?

It will make for “interesting” viewing if a non virtual viewer drops by anyhow. I think they may feel like they’ve walked into the Matrix or something if they were to explore the virtual videos. BUT it may also spark interest in our world, which may be a pretty positive thing. Or not. Time will tell.

Certainly it’s time to show people that real normal people inhabit Second Life. It’s about more than trolls and selling sex. It is about creativity, imagination and real people discovering the world from the comfort of their living room. ie a wonderful opportunity to meet so many different cultures without having to travel.

After all all avatars are humans too.

Another new home

Another new home

Im like a moving butterfly, flying from leaf to leaf looking for my forever home.

Yep moved again!!

The beautiful place Rosie and I had is no more, since a nightclub opened on the other half of the region and basically shoved out scripted this and that and our lag went from perfect to lets walk in treacle. Nature of the beast when you share a sim or a region. You have no control of the out look beyond your own 4 lines.

Rosie had done a great job of the vram police and making sure that everything on the land meant there was no drain on the computer when we walked around etc.

In one week that changed and frankly that was it. Move.

So here I am again showing you a new place but also showing you the old place as a visit down memory lane as I hadnt really got around to the full show off. Clearly I am rambling again which I tend to do .

Funny thing SL is a great place for not feeling too sad when things like this happen as you just each time create your own fantasy and its like going home.

Balancing when it could break

Balancing when it could break

Seems my wee virtual world may be getting a shake to it.

My computer is having issues and my hard drive keeps disappearing . Not to be found in the normal way either.

So it’s currently showing, but softwares stored there have been corrupted and I’ve had to uninstall and Re download.

On top of that, the computer now regularly gets the blue screen of ooops we had to shut down and restart.

I’ve got a 1TSSD drive arriving tomorrow to assist with the issue but part of me is feeling the days are numbered.

I do have a gaming laptop but it runs like me so thats no positive!

In the meanwhile I’m just biding time and making the best of the ticking clock. Getting used to being in the middle of something then getting kicked.

What will I do? Cry maybe or , yeah no I’ll cry.

Thing is my blog and my filming etc are what keeps me sane in a rather insane world. They’re my peace and stress relief and a way of expressing myself.

Without that. Then there’s me. I’ve always said if Second Life went down tomorrow I’d start being me and real. But my god can you imagine it!!

The real Thelma, Isa, Harriet, Aunty VaGina and Beverley!

So let’s hope you won’t be forced to meet the real characters. On a serious note, if I had to use my laptop it just means meh graphics and tasks would be a lot slower to complete. We shall see.

I wonder if a dance video …..

Virtual blogger rant!!!

Virtual blogger rant!!!

Wake up and smell the tangerines!!!

That’s what I actually pictured in my head doing this photo but then things came to my attention and for some reason it seemed quite fitting.

I’m not referring to a certain event in this blog as frankly I do not wish to taint the gorgeousness of this outfit nor this lovely creator, but I   will say I work with a number of creators and events managers who behave in a very professional fair way. If I have ever had issue believe me I wont let it sit I deal with it. So those that I blog for I appreciate with all my heart for their professionalism.

 

I have removed the video as I was approached by the person this affects to do so and because I value this person as I do I have done so. . Is it gone. No it sits on my hardrive.

I will be discussing the issues surrounding copyright etc and will liaise with other vloggers and long time bloggers on this for the benefit of all the bloggers and vloggers out there.

Let me say to you all now. If you are having issues in Second Life and feel you are pushed into a corner and have to jump two foot higher than you realistically need to.

You dont! Reach out to me and I will happily talk to you and offer some advice. At the end of the day no one ever needs to feel pushed into any corners because of any reason in this virtual world

You have rights in reality and you have rights in virtual reality.

I leave the blank video down below as a reminder that my words were very loud and clear in that video.

Constant Reflecting

Constant Reflecting

Good morning everyone. Hope your Sunday has started well.

I’m regularly finding myself taking time away from sitting at a PC lately.

I’ve been reflecting a lot lately about how we all tend to disappear into ourselves to ignore reality and pretend it doesn’t exist. Either through virtual worlds, gaming, films etc.

Well I hate to break the news. It exists in abundance and I hate to say the bad news, we have to go back to it often in order to change it.

It is easy to pop a switch on and press log in and we transport ourselves into our own fantasy. The harder part is returning to deal with our reality. But we have to.

The reality isn’t so great for many of us.

A constant worry about what life is going to be like due to this COVID pandemic and now looming recession. People passing away before their time and us not knowing what our futures are.

Reflection is important as it is time to prioritise and give thought to yourself and what you personally need in your life.

For me, it’s blowing away the negative forces of COVID, lifting the fog and seeing a positive future for all my family friends and ultimately myself.

I still want to travel and “find myself”. I still want to find my soul mate. See my children thrive and my grandchildren grow.

My message is simple. Remember your realities and don’t give up on knowing you have a big part in deciding the path you want it to go down. Enjoy the virtual but don’t rely on it to change that reality. The reality as dismal as it may feel, requires your regular interaction to make something of it.

Make it work for you!!!

Look after yourselves and take time today to smile at those close to you and be thankful for all the wonderful ways we have to reach those we love and care about.

I’m dressed!!!!

I’m dressed!!!!

I always struggle with nipple covers. I mean really! If I as going to wear these knickers and heels, I wouldn’t cover my nipples in reality.

No sir I wouldn’t!!!

I tell you why shall I?

Because I’d be hard pressed to find the damn things to stick the boobies cover over!! The gravity is real, very real. that’s all I’m saying.

Lucky in pretend land, no such reality issues. Free gift from Entice at the SL17B.

Time to reflect and relax

Time to reflect and relax

I have a 4 day weekend which started the moment I logged off my pc yesterday after work at 4pm. Complete relief to shut that down and just find some time to indulge me.

The past few weeks have been a real onslaught and a bit of a struggle trying to work in an environment of constant distraction (other person here) and juggling now 6 people I’m trying to support with my union hat on.

It’s funny how COVID19 has either brought out the great leaders who rise to the occasion. Yet has also highlighted those people who because of distancing feel able to behave less scrupulously in managing situations.

Both in work places or just out in the community.

For example the spate of local thefts. I’m serious. People are home and I guess the idea of burgling homes whilst people are present must be some kind of thrill. My housemates bike was stolen, right under everyone’s noses in a gated private area, where it was chained with all the other bikes. Where all the ground floor neighbours could see. Opportunists or thrill seekers?

But for the next few days I have a don’t give a toss attitude and am going to do my best to disengage from the world of stupid and do my own thing.

I’ll ignore my emails because frankly those people can wait till Tuesday and I’ll eat, watch films, read, walk and do what I love best. Being creative. It’s raining here so I can’t throw in laze in the sun, because I cannot find it.

Under the waterfall

Under the waterfall

As I stand here by the falls . My tears fall silently upon my heart but cannot be seen.

I’m going to be brutally honest here.

I cry inside with the pain of a mother’s heart that is separated from her children.

I have not seen my son nearly 3 months now and my daughter fleetingly a few weeks ago with my grandson outside on the pavement.

I was excited in many ways that I’d be able to have either of my children come here and come inside and hug from this weekend. Spend some real time together.

But you see that’s not going to happen.

Because I share my home with someone who hasn’t exactly followed the social distancing rules and in turn that means I can’t take the risk. Actually flouted a few times those rules. Don’t get me started on how. The government in its wisdom didn’t consider people like me. So on it goes.

The risk for my kids who won’t now be able to come here and that makes me sad inside. I’m at risk daily and I can accept that. But I can’t accept that my children are so close but feel so far away.

Technology is ok, it has its uses and ya da ya da ya da. Ultimately I’ve learnt that the most important thing for me is to stand in the same room with my family. Nothing else is important. Everything else feels superfluous and meaningless.

So I’m sad inside but also very angry. Angry that people are so selfish and self important and don’t think of others.

I’m angry that the world is right now behaving like a cesspool of hate and people have lost their minds. I’m angry that while I stand here feeling this, the world is behaving like it always has.

People kid themselves with all their self gratuitous statements and trying to be noticed and relevant.

The protests and the violence at a time we are meant to be united disgusts me. The hatred spread through Facebook and other social media’s like a silent virus, branching out and grabbing people along its way.

People victimising and bullying and accusing.

What has the world become? Unity lasted how long? We united because of a disease and then suddenly one police officer changed the world.

The people who have used that moment to gain social media fame and presence disgust me.

The irrelevant models, actors and businesses who exploit it to become someone in a world in turmoil. To behave like parasites using the time to be on stage and feel relevant.

The criminals who loot and commit violence. The people who choose to protest but social distancing becomes irrelevant. No cause is worth that right now. We are supposed to be overcoming something.

I’m tired and worn.

So, as I stand here under the waterfall and my tears fall inside my heart, I know that no one has learnt anything at all.

Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela are the true speakers. They both believed in peaceful protest and the power of what that could convey.

Everyone else? Missed the message.

No matter what way you want to mix it up or kid yourself. No one really knows what they are doing.

That beautiful image this weekend of a BLM protestors who go in and help a racist. That’s human!! Here’s the story Here

Love is in the air

Love is in the air

VaGina is wallowing in the heady feelings of love.

Yorkie has taken her fancy as he has moved in across the water. Or rather VaGina, tracked him down and moved in across the water to be near him.

Yorkie is an amiable neighbour, friendly and just showing he is a good neighbour by introducing VaGina to the local activity.

However, VaGina has her heart set that these are rumblings of a shared passion towards her.

What will happen next?
