Down by the River

Down by the River

Down by the river there's a place I often go
when I've had enough and I need to clear my head, 
when I need my space and I need to be alone.

Way out past town, beyond the end of Surrey Road, 
farther than the fields, past the windmill and the shed, 
down by the river there's a place I often go.

Past the maples and the oaks where the tall grass blows
you can find me there, in a place that's seldom tread
when I need my space and I need to be alone.

It's over where the cattails and the cane reeds grow, 
where the fish and the birds come see you to be fed.
Down by the river there's a place I often go.

When the water's warm I go down and wet my toes, 
sitting on the trunk of a tree that's fallen dead
when I need my space and I need to be alone.

It's there I think of love and times of long ago, 
I think about a girl and where she is instead.
Down by the river there's a place I often go
when I need my space and I need to be alone.

Le poisson du jour : Homebase in SL & Machinimation

Bear with me :-)
I'm always finding something new to learn about blogging so this is kind of an elaboration on some of the things I've experimented with.

It's not always easy to blog about a piece of furniture from a practical point of view ie. how is it to use? I think the SL Grid and furniture makers are divided on this point.

On the one you have makers that excel in design and so the furniture looks great but isn't particularly full of animations that can be considered " Useful" in your Second Life experience.

On the other you have makers that excel in imagination but not execution. So perhaps their furniture looks less "chic" but is irrelevant to you from a role-playing/living point of view.

Then of course you have the few who are good at both - but this also comes with a price tag outside what you might be willing to invest in $L for.

Sometimes I live a little in both worlds in my SL experience ie. The highly aesthetic, "glam" world of art and design - and the more "I can imagine this cardboard box is a castle" world inhabited by people who play.

Somewhere in the middle perhaps is where we might find Homebase Furniture.

Coincidentally Homebase in the UK is the brand of a DIY/Sundries/Garden Centre chainstore.

This Lap dance chair from Homebase SL has a pretty worn and simple aesthetic. The shop does not, at this time of blogging , have a comprehensive presence on MP and any information I have managed to glean about them has been hard won! They have a facebook page  and an in world store which is interesting but slightly chaotic to navigate in. That's ok :) my brain is quite like that myself.

This100% Mesh chair comes in Black or Red and is scripted with AV Sitter to seat two persons without the need for messing around with poseballs. The two sitting arrangements can also work independently, with some single sits to choose from if you are in the chair, and a variety of dances to play with; if you are the entertainment. The chair I have featured here is described as Red but depending on your windlight settings, it can appear closer to being a sort of Russet brown.
There are not many simple casual poses in this piece as it dives straight into the action with a menu for Lap Dancing/Slave Dancing and Sex

To better illustrate the sort of animations you might find in the chair,
I've made this little machinima!

It's really quite a fun little thing and I hope it gives you a little tease. <3

It isn't too hefty land impact wise at a relatively slim 4LI with Copy Mod permissions. I can see this being quite good at clubs.

For the price which is $L250 it won't break the bank and the animations are mo cap. Also being scripted with AV Sitter means you can adjust and save your personal settings if you do not quite fit the animations in its default.

Homebase SL is part of the MFGC network of merchants across the grid.

To Bina with Love

They say we all have that one special thing in our lives. The one item that we take wherever we go. The one item that seek for comfort when no one is around, when we are sad, or when we are lonely. They say this item has been with us since the beginning. For me Bina is my coveted item. He may get me in trouble at times and he may cheat at video games, but I sure do love Bina. We go on great adventures together and he fills up my time when my friends and family are all busy. Bina and I decided to dress up for valentines day and show the world that we can be sweet at times (well I am sweet all the time, he wanted to show is softer side).
