My Second Life


Watch the video

I finally made it. I'm in Second Life. Here is my first day in a social setting. It's some sort of welcome area, I think.

I dont' seem to be able to walk up stairs. I go through them instead. But, I did manage to get rid of a pesky bald spot by giving myself bigger hair.

Virtual vlogging in a virtual world.

I don't understand these PC based playgrounds for adults!

You seemed to be intelligent but boom.

There goes another one!

What do you do all day?

And with the countryside I saw you living in...what a shame...

Oh Anne, if I played Second Life I'd be your friend.

hey zudfunck!

well, second life, i would argue, is another internet platform. it is a playground but also so much more.

besides, i have had an interest in forms of communication and self-representation for a very long time and this is a further investigation of those things.

besides. i can fly in there. :)

i haven't spent much time in second life so far. just a couple of look arounds so far. i hope to be able to locate some of the other vloggers and go to some conferences there.

what do i do all day? depends on the day. i don't get out nearly enough. that much is clear.

I dont know what I was expecting. But you are now up there with Josie and the Pussycats (mmm the original cartoon version). That Ms Apogee has a great arse. ;)

I have been wanting to try this out myself but it looks waaay to addictive. I had to uninstall the SIMS when I started to find myself playing it when the sun rose on the weekends sleeping for a couple of hours and then playing the rest of the day... I'll wait till after I graduate to even peek at second life... Have fun!

hey Monika,

i haven't gotten addicted yet. probably because the learning curve is pretty steep for non-gamers like myself.

once i figure out how to walk properly, i will probably enjoy the experience of it more...smiles

I'm so glad some dude approves of your character's butt.

Meanwhile, that was a funny video. I think it's cool that you can't "walk" in SL because that's your name! Ha! Though you did change it...did the two have anything to do with one another?

I won't pretend that Second Life doesn't freak me out - it definitely does - but I think you, Anne, could put it in perspective for me more than some people who have tried. Thanks for sharing the first attempt with us!
