Second Life: Misfits of Deviation

So I attended a Hallowe'en party in SecondLife, and here are some of my photos from the night.
I somehow managed to win the costume contest. I went as the BlackWidow. If you are someone in Second Life, you have to join us some time at Club Deviation. The DJ's are some of the best around SL!

Sunday October 28

3 Days.
3Days till Samhain. or Hallowe'en for those non-pagans out there. The most important night of the year for me, and I will be doing not much this year. I had planned on having a major episode of Creeping Screams! up on the company webblog but that didn't happen. I was planning on a major party, but since I no longer have a crew and the few people in town are well pregnant, so that isn't happening. The Ninja has plans with the MonkeyBoy. So, even my sister has deserted me on the big night.
Forget going to the movies that night, this town is always crammed with people on any holiday for the cinema.

My Surreal Life

Okay, this is me in Second Life. My hair changes from day to day just enough to represent my style in real life, as do my clothes.
No luck as of yet with a job in SL, or home for that matter. But, aren't I cute as a cartoon?

Second Life

I like having a character in this program.
I am one of those who actually uses it as an extention of myself. I would not/will not do anything with my online character that I wouldn't in real life.

So what has my character done so far? Not much, so far I have wandered around, buying clothes and hanging out in clubs. I have tried to get a job in SL, and a home. It's difficult when you don't have any cash. Second Life and your offline lives can suck in such similar ways without you even trying. And inorder to have cash in SL, you need to have it in the real world -with a credit card.

Let's see if I have better luck as a 3D animation then I do as a flesh and blood person.

What I learned from Sex and the City Part 4.8

When you are stuck in a mind rut, go shoe shopping. Yeap, I was having major writers block once again, so last night I watched some podcasts of Fashion TV, which then lead me to a song they played in one of the episodes, so I downloaded the song from iTunes, then a complete page seemed to write it'self just from the beat of the song. So to celebrate, today I spent the day in Second Life getting shoes for my character. Then danced at a disco in there. Sometimes the internet is good for you.

Rant of the Week -RumorMill

All I can say is what a dick!
I am a major fan of the actors Corey Feldman and Corey Haim. Loved the idea of the A&E show "Two Coreys", I have a collection of movies that the team did (Dream a Little Dream 1 and 2, Blownaway, National Lampon's Last Resort, and of course Lost Boys) and was as let down when watching the episode where Feldman tells Haim that they are doing a Lost Boys 2 but he wouldn't do it without Haim. I just read on Yahoo News that half the cast from Lost Boys IS INDEED in the straight to dvd movie. All but Corey Haim. And guess who has the top billing, right Feldman.
No one likes to see their heroes turn out to be normal people that takes away all the magic but it's just not right to find out someone you gave teen idol status to being such a dick. It makes you question your own views and ego.

Damn, I need a cocktail

Monday Morning Moodrings

I have new neighbours. I hope they don't stay. Or maybe I do? Since they moved in on Friday, the landlord moved out. The landlord's daughter still lives in the building which means so does her 5 year old holy terror. BUT, that five year old has not had one of his tantrums since the new neighbours moved in. MMMM...and with new people in the building they should finally get off their collective asses and get the washer repaired. It's only be broken since last Feb.
You read right. The washer has been broken for 9months. That's harsh.

I got a whole paragraph written over the weekend! WHOOOAA! One whole paragraph on the first draft of the one story I am writing. I wrote a novel about ten years ago about witches. I loved that story. It was very easy to write too, only took me 3 months total. So one afternoon after pinching the bridge of my nose to the point of seeing stars from lack of being inspired, I asked myself when was the last time my work have me hope? The answer was the story I wrote about the witches. So I set to work writing another one. Set in the same place different characters. It's been a full year and I still haven't gotten more then 50 pages done. It's hopeless! I feel useless.
Even Ninja told me "to go back to what you do best" last year when I was in the worst part of the writers block; "go back to the vampires, witches, werewolves and all that jazz".
Let's see if I can get one more paragraph done today....right after I get coffee.

October 13th

Not that ;that seems to mean anything really. Ninja agreed to go see the new vampire movie with me next week, if she isn't overrun with work. Well, let me rephrase that, Ninja agreed to go see the new Josh Hartnett movie with me next week that just happens to be a vampire movie. This is the fourth time in the last two months my sister and I have said "let's go to the movie on your night off." and all the other times the movie we wanted to see was gone already. Fingers crossed that this one stays in town for a full week so we can see it.

Internet wise, I have been hanging out here It is a horror/gothic type of site like myspace or facebook. Nice so far, more relaxed then the other two.

Also, did a new review on my vampire blog for the movie The Thirst.

The first draft of my own novel I think might turn into a novella. It is only 20 pages at this point but I am once again struggling to get these characters to work. I might have to just rip them apart and start this story from scratch. Plus working on the second draft of the film. If you have been following things from last year, you know the troubles with the film. So Ninja suggested just ripping it apart and starting over.
Love Ya Ninja! Though I do find it hard to just rip my baby apart and start over. I almost never make it through a second draft of my work without hitting bumps that I just don't want to change.

Best of the X Division volume 2

I just got my hands on a copy of this dvd. Even though it has been out for months, everytime I went to get a copy it was sold out. That tells you something..."TNA is wrestling".
With some of the highlights from a full year's battle between not two but three of the top X-Division members: Styles, Daniels and Joe. Plus ppv matches and highlights from the first year of Impact.
Anyone who has listened to me rant about wrestling before knows that I love TNA, and knows that two of my all time favourite athletes are Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin and this dvd has many of their highlights as well.
I can not wait for Best of X-Division 3!

Monday Morning

It's been raining since last night.
It's Thanksgiving Day and raining. How more cliched in this city can you get? Every year rain on Thanksgiving and snow on Hallowe'en.
I have been hanging out on this website for the last few months and at first it was cool. Now, it's all about ratings. One person decided to give me a favourite rate, then took it away a few days later, then two days ago it was back, then this morning gone again. I wish they would just make up their minds already! I joined the particular website because of it's library, not for it's popularity contest, but can't have one on their without the other. It just seems to me that life has turned into one large popularity contest. and we all feed it even now, I am proudly displaying my D-List blog status on all my blogs so I am just as guilty as the rest. I just don't get evil about it. It's just hard to watch something you believe in get drowned in crap.
Like I said I joined their site for their database not their games.
9am EST and I haven't even had a coffee yet.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Fay Grim

Loved it!
Parker Posey plays a single mom who's husband ran out on her and their son 7 years ago. Her brother is in jail and a very famous writer. The FBI are looking for a journal that could prove her husband is a secret agent. What is she going to do about all this? Go to Paris and find the missing diary.
Witty, fresh, well written this film is worth the rental fee. A comedic film noir with brains.

Rick Mercer Blows My Mind!

I picked up the book yesterday afternoon, I finished reading it this morning.
What can I say other then "My Canada has Rick Mercer as Prime Minister."
He knows what we need as a Nation, and he knows the major (and sometimes minority ) players and how to deal with them.
This book will have you laughing, nodding your head, and running to his blog for more.

Look into the Darkness...

Copywrite hcvp'07

For all of you who might not have believed me for the last few years, Yes! Butterfly is real!
Here is the very rare photo she let me take...that I took of her changing Mya's dipper that she didn't make me erase.
The other co-founder of hardcore Vamps Prods.,
