Although it was a â€œnew releaseâ€ announcement that brought me to jada Tigerpawâ€™s grungy-punky-fantasy clothing and accessories shop Returned Karma, in the end it actually wasnâ€™t the new release I ended up taking home. Not that the new release (a grunge/fantasy outfit called Biter; think Taylor Lautner as Jacob Black) doesnâ€™t look goodâ€”donâ€™t get me wrong, it looks great. No, it was just that, after browsing the small but varied collection of menâ€™s items, I found myself most intrigued by this fantasy ensemble, called Sticky Rice. Read the rest of this entry »

You’ve probably heard of organized weekend shopping events like Fifty Linden Fridays and Sixty Linden Weekends. With their (as you can no doubt guess) discounted sale items, designed to get you in the door, they’re great for bargain-hunters of all preferences and persuasions. I’ve been known to take advantage of these myself, but I’m rarely able to share the joy here, at least not while the sale is still onâ€”the weekends are so short, after all. So don’t get used to this, not at all. That said…I guess there’s a first time for everything. This ensemble was put together all in one stop at JohnnyD Posthorn’s Juice (Jet Lag 97, 119, 21). You too can pick up theÂ Hucker Hoodie, ultra-low-cut Dixie Jeans and unisexÂ Tonka Boots for just L$60 each. Choose copy/mod permissions or mod/transfer, if you want to give them as gifts. But don’t wait! The sale ends at midnight SLT tomorrow (as I write this), Sunday, June 19. After that, you’ll be paying full price.
Sometimes, when Iâ€™m having a particularly lazy day at home, I just donâ€™t feel much like changing into non-lazy (and therefore less comfortable) clothing before going out. Even less do I feel like â€œdressing up.â€ Hey, I figure everyoneâ€™s lucky I got dressed at all. In real life, this usually means, t-shirt, shorts and sandals. (On less slovenly Saturdays, the shirt may be Cubavera, the shorts linen.) But letâ€™s face itâ€”in SL, I can do better than that. I can be hotter than that. We all can. Read the rest of this entry »
One likes a good shirt. And this is a good shirt. A smart shirt. One regrets that the shirt cannot be closed and one’s ties worn with it… it is almost as if the tailor, Mssr Pfeffer, wishes to celebrate casualness. One wonders what good could possibly come of this!? Scandalous! Read the rest of this entry »
Well, okayâ€¦some details now. Those of you who have been following along for a while know that my PC could be best described as â€œold and getting olderâ€. Well, I am at long last taking the plunge and have actually (gasp!) placed the order for new hardware. This has been long overdue but was finally precipitated by one of the weirdest failures Iâ€™ve ever seen: apparently one of the RAM chips in my old PC has failed. The result is that it still runs, but on a half-ration of RAM it runs oh soÂ much more slowly, as you may well imagine. So the time has come and Iâ€™m getting a shiny new toy. In the meantime, Iâ€™m limited on what I can actually do in SLâ€”the client still runs (wonder of wonders, miracle of miracles), but even with graphics settings etc. turned all the way down, complex environments like let’s say for instance shops are not terribly do-able. Itâ€™s only a matter of time, though! Come on UPS Standard Ground Delivery, Iâ€™m waiting!
