If your definition of fusion involves something like french cuisine with an asian twist, then Second Life has some surprises for you.
I landed on a sim named Goth↑ to find a build called Alice is Wonderland (I think it’s a typo, the word is “in” elsewhere) which combines elements of the well known story with steampunk, roleplay, combat, romance, and dancing. It’s doubtful that you could become bored in this type of a world. :)
“Down the rabbit hole” has a variety of meanings – for my purposes, we’ll ignore all of the ones which would get my blog an X rating. I’ve always used it to indicate a situation which is fantastical and out of the ordinary. One which doesn’t necessarily follow the rules of life as I know it. I usually use the term in a positive sense.
You have until noon SLT tomorrow to jump down a rabbit hole that you really don’t want to miss.
The first time I worked on a large community event it felt like I’d entered another world. There was a very large group of people (I mean in the hundreds) involved and they were all working together collaboratively and with spirit. It was the ultimate in the cliche of a large family-like atmosphere. We worked very hard and laughed so much that the source of exhaustion was often blurry. I had the best time of any life I can remember.
If you haven’t already, you have one more day to volunteer for the SL10B Community Celebration↑ and enjoy that type of experience. This will be the 10th anniversary of our world and the event will be very, very, special. Get involved! You don’t have to have mad technical skills – it’s about being a part of a team and creating something. Training will be provided if necessary – the point is to join in and be part of something.
Go to the website↑. You’ll find all the information you need and the forms that are crying out for your information. It won’t be the same without you! Walking through that door will be one of the best things you ever do.

It’s true that I’ve not been posting as much as usual. I feel like I owe you an explanation, but this is just between you and me. It’s a secret and I’m begging you not to tell anybody! This is one of those “once in a lifetime” opportunities and I don’t want to blow it.
I was contacted by a man who represents a woman in a royal family (you’ll understand that I need to keep the names confidential). She has $184 million that she wants to invest in a venture as a silent partner. I know what you’re thinking, but it’s not one of those scams – I have to prove myself.
First I had to give my business profile, a justification for considering me. Then I had to do a proposal that included a guaranteed annual return of 10% to the investor. Now, I have no doubt that my venture will be able to satisfy that requirement but still, I had to make sure it was a brilliant proposal.
I’m waiting to hear if she’s chosen me as her business partner – the suspense is very stressful. I promise, when this happens, that I won’t forget you or the others who have supported me so long. In fact, there’s a box of chocolates with your name on it. I’ll send it just as soon as the lawyers tell me it’s OK to sign the contract.

Yazoo Rang↑ has created a group of mini-landscapes↑ for your exploratory pleasure. You begin with Alex Bader’s↑ tunnel of trees, emerge to find a meadow and a post-apocalytic town in the distance. There’s also a teleport to Death Valley (and who can resist that?).
I took my alt out there this morning – not because I was hiding. This time it was because “the poor dear” had to accept some inventory. I mentioned yesterday that I’ve been feeling guilty because this avatar hasn’t been updated in years, so I finally did something about that.
I realized – as I went through the process of getting new hair, eyes, skin, clothes, and an ao – that I don’t think of this individual as “me“. It would be more accurate to say this is a useful person I happen to know. Having said that, if I’m going to spend much time inworld as this account I’d prefer better scenery (so to speak).
The update process was less painful than I expected, although I think I got scammed on an ao – the jury is still out. In addition, I’m not entirely happy with the skin but it is a major improvement. In any case, I’ll share the new version. I’m no Strawberry Singh↑ when it comes to portraits, but trust me – he is much easier to look at now. :)
