Buh Rumpa Bum Bum

Posted in SL® Fashion with tags , , on December 14, 2009 by Rosie Shark

Yes, it’s like Christmas barfed all over the feeds. You can’t avoid it. And look! Soooooo cute, why would you want to? I’ve been toying with this Tattered Christmas Dollie set w/ao all weekend. Ask people! I’ve annoyed them with the jingling of the happy puppet cross bells above my head.

This adorable creation is new for the holidays from The Dollhouse by Lvs & Co. and comes in 6 festive colors! The flouncy petticoats make me happy and the vibrant red is just the thing I need to get me singing more christmas songs :P I just needed to put on my Dutch Touch Jolie Pip skin to make the whole thing come together!

The most fun for me about this Dollie was the AO supplied. The puppet AO gave me the most hilarious stiff-legged walk, and cutest wave, stands and sits! All photos taken were using poses in the AO. What’s important to note is that The Tattered Christmas Dollie, complete with AO and puppet strings cross is only L$100! All the time. All dolls at The Dollhouse are L$100! Add with that the always-fabulous customer service provided by Ravenlynn Templar, and it’s a steal!

The puppet cross that comes with the set is sooo cute I wanted to snuggle it… even though it jingled over my head endlessly with it’s magical tinkling bells. It features scripted puppet strings that attach to your ankles and wrists as an on/off option when you click the green present on the underside that the lil gnome/elf is holding. Note: it’s important that you have your Max. Particle Count set to above 0 to see the strings :P It was worth it to me to do an extreme close up like seen above to point out the charming details on the puppet cross! It comes in w/snow and w/o snow versions, various santas having a good ol’ time, and has twinkling xmas lights!!! Annnnnd the fabulous musical bells I believe I mentioned :P

We’re All Stars in the Freakshow

Posted in Review, SL® Fashion with tags , , , on June 27, 2009 by Rosie Shark

So there I was… getting ready for the Hair Fair.

ARC… whut? Nah, haha, Kidding!

Courtesy of Nitestar Albion, Jell and I got outfitted up in !Freakshow gear. The latest in post-apocalyptic couture, Freakshow offers a pretty decent-sized initial collection.

jbfreakshow3

Though she plans to do more clothing designs, Nitestar’s real passion is prims… mega boots, bracers, belts, backpacks. I’ve known Nitestar since my very first days in SL and it was so exciting to see what she’d created.

You will find that the offerings are made up of the grimy, the almost indecent, and the prepared for battle. And look! OMG the Mean Girl Back Pack!! Isn’t it to die for?!

jbfreakshow

I’m truly thrilled with the level of detail and quality that Nitestar has put into her items. Tattered, nippled, weathered, and worn… Freakshow lends a bit of authenticity to your rough second life :D

If I Were a Lin-den [na na nana na...]

Posted in lip-sync with tags , on June 5, 2009 by Rosie Shark

*sung to the tune of Gwen Stefani’s Rich Girl*

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
[2x]


If I was a Lin-den (na, na….)
See, I’d have special powers on the grid, if I was a Lin-den girl
No one could log my failed request, my powers would never end
Cause I’d have special powers, if I was a Lin-den girrrrrrrrrrl

Think what that power could bring
I’d run everything
Clean out Nyte’N’Day
In my LeeZu Baxter gown
No, wouldn’t just have one hood
A Barnesworth mansion if I could
Please hook me up with VIP status at your fancy club

All the L$ baby, won’t mean anything
All the L$ baby, won’t bring what this high can bring
All the L$ baby, won’t mean anything
Don’t need no other baby
Lin-den is better than gold, and I know

If I was Lin-den (na, na…)
See, I’d have all the power on the grid, if I was a Linden girl
No mysti-tool could see me, save you from griefers baby
Cause I’d have all the power on the grid, if I was a Linden girrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrl

I’d get me four fashion bloggers to (uh huh)
Inspire me and they’d come to my rescue
they’d dress me up wicked, I’d give them names (yeah)
Fetted Inner Core of wub
Save me from the linden library

All the riches baby, won’t mean anything
All the riches baby, won’t bring what status can bring
All the riches baby, won’t mean anything
Don’t need no other baby
Philip is hotter than M, and I know

[Jell]
Come together all over the grid
From the hoods of the SL, Harajukubox girls
What, it’s all love
What, give it up
What (shouldn’t matter 4x), what
Come together all over the grid
From the hoods of SL, Harajukubox girls
What, it’s all love
What, give it up
What (shouldn’t matter 4x)
What happened to my slife
Turned upside down
Blogs that blew ya mind, ding, it’s the second round
(Original track and ting, mmm)
You know you can’t buy these things (no)
See Rosie and her BAN, I rock the Fetish
People, you know who I am

Yes ma’am, we got the style that’s wicked
I hope you can all keep up
We climbed all the way from a n00b to the top
Now we ain’t gettin’ nothin’ but love

If I was Lin-denl (na, na…)
See, I’d have all the power on the grid, if I was a Lin-den girl
No one could test me, n00bs would impress me, style would be part of the TOS
Cause I’d have all the power on the grid, if I was a Linden girl

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Here… Drink Mine Instead!

I love Hawksrock Gunawan.   He is sort of like my personal idol at the moment.   Who else could take an event he knew next to nothing about, be annoyed with it even though he’s so over SL in general, show no regard for people he admittedly has on his ‘friend’s’ list, spout off some propaganda about hypocrisy (oh the irony!), lure people to his post through that ever-useful plurk as a marketing tool, get them to read, and then get like 30 days, tops, worth of free publicity from it with everybody singing his praises. I think this represents the best in megalomaniacal (I might have made that word up) self-aggrandizing (I might have made that word up too!) soapboxing  genius I have seen in a while.

I have no doubt that hawks is a super nice sweet individual who wanted to do something for the blog-reading community.   I am proud to have him on my friends list, though I’d be shocked to actually get an IM from him.   I also am pretty sure that he knew that giving the people out there who read stuff something to go :O at was going to score him some great clicks.   I hope he doesn’t expect there to be a Hawksrock Gunawan is the awesomest person in the universe day, but I do think he expected this gesture to gain some negative feedback, because I am of the opinion that whatever faults you wanna throw at Hawks he has proven time and again that he has big smarts and an even bigger spoon.

I am however just a little bit shocked and dismayed at how quickly our band of blog readers out there are ready to line up like ducks at the shooting gallery.   They realized that if they tried to express a little involvement and levity and let’s say admitted they liked something everyone else did (HEAVEN FORBID) that they would quickly be banned from commenting on the Rev and miss out on all the free dramz.  Hawks says dance, they dance like mofo’s.   The same can be said of the quick rapid rise of Hawksrock Gunawan to take up Hawksrock Gunawan is the supreme god of the we’re-not-sheep-looket-satirez-i-has-it philanthropic association day, all because he took time to share his uninformed opinion? To my knowledge Hawks was pretty cool before this whole venture, but now that they scored drama he is EVERYWHERE!   Lord knows we wanna make sure this becomes an annual event, and maybe even other people will take up the cause of appreciating our band of hard working-hound-your-gf-to-edit-your-vid-for-you, overuse flowery adjectives and hopefully remmy the little people bloggers out there.  Isn’t it ironic, dontcha think?

Tell Me Baby…

Posted in Op/Ed, Satire, SecondLife® with tags , , on April 22, 2009 by Rosie Shark

Once upon a time, the adoption agencies that populated the grid were the answer to the prayers of some of the barren residents of SL. SL child welfare authorities were busy and happy… matching loving avatar couples with the creepy-grown-adult-playing-a-child spawn they so craved. The sounds of “Sissssssssssssssyyyyyyyyyyyyy” and the lilting “I love you buh bye” were music to the ears of parents to be everywhere.

Sadly this is no longer the case. As adoption agencies now turn away the rising number of unwanted and orphaned child AV’s due to overcrowding, one must wonder what the reason is.

Meet Baby Chris 1.0. Previously known only for peddling pets, Zooby’s has launched onto the child-for-sale scene with their introduction of      Baby Chris.

“Things used to be so complicated,” explains Baby Chris in a rather gravely and raspy voice. He throws back a shot of whiskey as he ponders his next words. “With kid aveez, parents were always havin to deal with personality and crap….,”

BC erupts into a coughing fit and stares at the lit end of his cigar accusingly. “Me? Well, I’m the new generation. HA HA HA. There’s no ‘person’ behind this baby,” he continues, punctuating the air around him with his finger quotes. “Log out for a few hours a day so I can get some damn peace and quiet and I’m good to go.”

Touted as SL’s best babies, Zoobys are quickly taking the grid by storm. One look at their angelic faces and guaranteed cooing and awwing will follow. Plus, there are so many options, your SL will be fun-filled with an adorable accessory you can show all your friends!

Amazingly life-like, they can sleep, crawl, talk, sit, and even breastfeed! “Except that Morgan one!” BC sputters. “Poor sap all handicapped with those fangs… good thing he doesn’t care he’s missin all that melon action. Know what I’m sayin’? HA HA HA.” Once again, Chris is interupted by coughing fit as I subtly roll my eyes.

Seems like these itty bitty, cooing, sweet-smelling angels are a dream come true, right? We were not convinced. We decided to get another perspective from one orphaned child avatar, named Star (real name changed to protect the wanna-be minor).

Star explains her need to explore her inner child through the use of a creepy child av,”I didn’t feew wike I had the reaw wife chiwdhood I detherved. Sure, my parenth were rich, and I wath thpoiled but I need to feew dithipwine, and I kinda wike getting thpanked.”

What did the unanticipated arrival of Baby Chris 1.0 mean for Star?

“My parenth were no wonger interethed in me,” Star says and the corners of her pouty mouth turn down. The details of the ordeal that followed are horrifying.

“I wath wocked in a cewl while they pwayed wif their new toy,” she says. I can see the big puppy dog tears welling in her eyes at the memory. “My SL parenth woved me I thought.” One fat tear rolls down her face.

It was the natural progression of your slife. Be a noob, find a poseball partner, make it official by adding that person to your lil box, then the palatial estate and marriage. The next step will always be to start your new family. Perhaps with a repressed guy from South Dakota who would like to rp as your new bouncing baby boy.

For one child who had enjoyed such a charmed existence – safe in the loving picks of her ‘parents’ – thoughts of driving cross country in her own diaper to gain closure over the failed parent/child relationship began to seem reasonable.

“Messy!” declares Baby Chris. “Folks are so needy. You won’t get any of those nagging emotional needs to fill with a Zooby Baby.” He winks as he looks at me, “what you will get is a guaranteed bundle of motha effing joy, pink cheeks and the silencing of your biological whosit.”

“Thure, theth babieth are great if you’re a thocially awkward, materiawistic fathionithta who needth a lil thomething new on their arm,” adds Star bitterly.

This has  been a collaboration of JellyBean Madison and Rosie Shark. We’ve all seen the craze. What are your thoughts on Child AV’s and prim babies?
