Second life turns 16 Lets Celebrate

Second life turns 16 Lets Celebrate

Can you believe it, Second Life is turning 16!!! With a 1950’s retro theme. So get those retro outfits on.

I  remember when I first discovered this crazy land, back in 2003 when I saw something about it on the internet and thought I would have a look at it.

Back then, the olden days of virtual chatting it was very new and so different from all the chat clients that were around at the time. Messenger, Yahoo, ICQ to name a few.

Even back then I loved to find out who you could talk to around the world.

I made many friends from far off places and to this day I am still in good contact with people as far back as 1999.

But Second Life was something totally different and back then, even though my computer and dial up connection couldn’t handle it very well, I knew this was something very unique and I wanted to be a part of. Moving forward to 2007 my organisation advertised to us to join as they had a sim in there a brief period. I joined but struggled again as I had moved to another dial up connection.

Come 2010, I was there and haven’t looked back. Have never regretted and made absolutely some of the most wonderful friends I have come to know both inworld and out of the world.

So now we celebrate. I am not going to credit outfits etc in todays blog because I can save that for tomorrow.

Below in the credits you will find all the information you need to jump around to where you want to go.

HAVE FUN, DONT DRINK TOO MUCH, AND JUST REMEMBER, THERE ARE TAXIS SO SAVE YOUR FEET!

Talking about that content theft person

Talking about that content theft person

Todays Coffee with Isa I had hoped to make less than ten minutes but frankly once I start ranting about something, there is no stopping me!

I need to make it very clear there is no indication that the music artist music SOLOinDisco whose music was used is behind any of this. I have been in correspondence and by all accounts this artist is genuinely shocked and will remove any content this woman had sent him this weekend when he returns home from vacation. So try not to copyright strike him please as he has been misled.

Copyright theft/infringements are a real serious business when it comes to content these days. Why?  Well it always has been, but even more so now since the inception of monetization on various social media platforms and the ability of the content creator to receive reward for their hard earned efforts.

So what do you do when you see someone has stolen something that was yours? Remember if it was yours the minute you uploaded it to the internet a copright was placed on your work. That is all the evidence you need to then go forward and issue a strike against anyone.

Below the video and after the credits you will find links to the offending persons pages.   I have also placed a link to how you submit copyright claims on Facebook in case you struggle with how to do this.

Remember even though your content may not be on Facebook  you can submit a takedown notice because it is on YouTube through Facebook. But my main recommendation is that you use your rl account to submit the take down notice regarding your YouTube works because Facebook wont deal with a “character” .

It is daunting to do but mine was removed today on one of them. Facebook process asks you for your real life details. Only give your name, a phone number and an email. In the section for the address I wrote in there not prepared to share my address with a fraudster. They accepted that.

What I also have done in the past month since I first learnt this was happening, is that I started uploading my content into Facebook and scheduling for release at a later date. This is on my Isabelle Cheren page. This way there are two areas you can pin point a copyright towards.

So upload to You tube for release that day, but also upload to  my Facebook page for release in the future. usually like 2 months later.

If you run Pages  for your video works etc then make your rl person an admin also. They can be a silent admin but that way you have more controls as that real person if that makes sense.

I need to tell someone

I need to tell someone

Here in the UK we are basking in 28 degrees and I’ve seriously seen some sights that I cannot unsee, ever!

Right now as I’m sat on the bus amongst the sweet smells of body odour there he sits. Homer Simpson reincarnate with no shirt on, pale skin and red where he has sunburnt himself. Sweat dripping off his erect nipples as he laughs during his mobile phone conversation.

I’m sure it must be a woman on the other end. He is flirting, I’m sure of it.

I’m sure he is feeling pretty good right now. But the fact that I have him in my field of vision for the next 30 mins all the way home…..What more can I say. I’ve never studied nipples so much. I could write a essay.

I’m traumatised. I was expecting vin diesel today at the very least for this intense moment.

Oh hang on, this is reality!

The candy store

The candy store

Yeah you assumed I was going to recite the lyrics for 50 cents version of the Candy Store, didn’t you?

Actually the minute I got my catwa lolly I couldn’t get the song back out of my head.

Now I’m stuck with it all over again like I was when it first came out. Back then when I used to sing and hum to it without thinking what the words meant.

If anything the lolly matches my dress don’t you think? It’s called coordinating.

My garden of Eden

My garden of Eden

Ok so the scene is wrong. Sunglasses and short skirts in the snow.

Well you know what, in a virtual world you can experience most things you wouldn’t dream of doing in the real world. So let me enjoy my 10 minutes of sunshine in the snow.

Actually as said previously, I cant wait for it to snow and in that vein I have been visiting all the snow sims lately with my build up of excitement to pleading with mother nature to send some to the South East of England.

These photos are actually taken in my back garden  because I decided yesterday to whip out my inventory and get ready for a few months of winter. I haven’t finished yet by any means because frankly it looks like a kid had taken a crayon to the backyard. But once its done I will of course share that with you. For now I’m going to pretend that rolling in that white stuff isn’t cold and that dreams come true.

Are you Sad in November?

I’ve had my fair share of sad lately for a number of reasons. Both SL and RL. 

Sometimes though you just have to escape and pretend they don’t exist.

I’m a master of pretend. But somehow I’m not that good at convincing myself.

All dressed up and no where to go

I’m finding my travels in SL are increasingly becoming more solitary.

Last night I had this gorgeous dress and decided I’d take my pixelated self out on the town. The only issue was that most places were either desolate with people or so busy there was little point as lag and I are not good friends.

I visited a jazz venue, which I will return to in the hope of seeing people there as it was done really well and I do like a bit of jazz.

In the midst of my travelling I decided I’d go to a library and read a book instead.

That was fine until I looked over my shoulder and a couple were naked going at it like rabbits stuck on high speed.

Actually it was pretty entertaining as some essential requirements for any love life appeared to be missing from the dude. I’m wondering  if the woman got anything from that experience.

Personally I found it a hilarious sight to behold and stayed peeking over my book and wondering how the scene would pan out. 

I decided my book in the end was far more interesting.

You have to agree though, I looked pretty classy.

The Phoenix

Rises…..

The song track to this video is called The Phoenix. I produced it in 2015 and actually the making of it was for SL.

At the time Exodus Rock club had closed and suddenly my Saturday nights were no longer spent at the themed events and just enjoying filming and listening to the banter amongst folk. ( folk makes me sound old, but it’s my favourite word at the moment for people).

I really loved those  Saturday nights and when you go back on the history of my SL you tube channel, Exodus features throughout.

When I joined SL in 2010 as my original avatar, it was Exodus I ended up calling my “local”.

Back then I was a noob with the statutory  big boobs and bling earrings and certainly no pixel class. Slowly I learnt about good taste, less is more and about men with bad chat up lines and how to avoid them.

I developed the art of click and sit to animate, and how to build a box, colour it and make it look like a vase. A talent I soon realised wasn’t a talent but actually quite the basic skill you should have.

I’ve come a long way in my journey and been a number of avatars over the years. I’ve never hidden my alts and everyone knows they were always part of my cast when I created a new video.

I’ve had some  truly bad experiences which have taught me to be less naive with people and some also fantastic experiences and people who have become my good friends.

So back to The Phoenix…,
