Busty Neko Shay

Today I decided to be Neko again after seeing and purchasing the neko ears and tail from Magika. The hair is also from Magika and what I love most is that it comes with a hud so you can change hair colors easily. Great quality mesh hair for sure.

Body is Big Udders BosomMesh by Universal Implants, hands are Yabusaka, Feet and eye lashes by GA, skin and mesh nipple guard by SPANKED.

You can see the full photo spread at: SPANKED Flickr page.

Tiny Little Musicians

Stacia Zabaleta owner of Gatherings has released this adorable Musicians Stool for Petite avatars. The stool and flute is of a sculpt design and only take up 1 prim each. The guitar is so tiny and cute it fits perfectly with any Petite avatar and is all Mesh with super accurate detailed. I know because I made the guitar HAHA!  Not playing favorites here (tee hee ^_^) but this Musician Stool is sooooooo damn cute! If you are a Petite then this is definitely something you'll want to add to your home, back yard, front deck or stage.

Don't Know What Ya Got......

A while ago I wrote a blog review of a sim called Starbase Alpha. I t was called Rediscovering Starbase Alpha and it was about a space themed sim where you could rez ships and RP to your hearts content. It was a great sim and I was there a lot... but sadly..... it's been gone a while now.

Paranth who was the owner of the sim would often send messages out to the group members asking for help in getting people to join and rent space so he could support the 3 sims but eventually he had to close the sims one by one. Some of us thought he'd never close it and we took for granted what SBA offered.

As the old saying goes "You don't know what you got til it's gone" many of us have felt the sting in the closing of SBA. I have searched far and wide and have yet to find anything like it. Yeah there are a few that are trying. Like Mesa 5....... but none of them to date are fully operational or even open for business.

Paranth if you see this.... we miss SBA. To anyone else reading this. If you remember SBA and know a sim that can replace it... send me an IM. I'd love to know about it.

Gorilla Marketing Gone Wrong

In a time in the not too distant past (the beginning of the Internet) I read a book called "Gorilla Marketing for the Internet" and in this book I learned many clever ways to promote my real life business in the "Brave New World" of cyberspace. Tricks like "how to promote a business on a forum without getting ejected" and so on. The book was and is very valuable and still has techniques that work today even though the net has changed immensely. However all the marketing books I read all said the same thing.... "Use tact."

One of the things I have noticed in secondlife is group IMs (instant messages) starting where someone asks a question like "Where can I find clothing for BosomMesh" or some other question requiring a specific answer. But then suddenly as if on cue someone will answer the question with great gusto on a particular name brand. For the sake of discussion we'll create a fictitious name brand and call it "UbberJuggs".

So it will go a little something like this:

Jane: Hey does anyone know where I can find nice clothing for BosomMesh?

Marie Hijack: oh you want UbberJuggs. They have everything and they are the best ever. You can't go wrong with UbberJuggs. They have clothes and skins and butt implants and pregnant bellies and everything.

Susan Sincere: there are other places too like (insert other name brands here) you can check out. What sort of style are you looking for?

Marie HiJack: You want a skin from UbberJuggs. It doesn't matter what clothes you buy you need a good skin and shape has nothing to do with it either. Buy a skin from UbberJuggs they are the BEST EVER!

Jane: ummmm ok umm well I want something formal I can wear to an event with formal dancing. Does anyone know a good place?

Marie HiJack: UBBERJUGGS!! they are so awesome. They have everything. all sorts of sexy dresses and the BEST skins and pregnant bellies!

Jane: do they make formal dresses?

Marie HiJack: They have the sexiest slutty outfits and don't be fooled by the rest UbberJuggs is the best! Their butt plugs and prego bellies are awesome.

Susan Sincere: Jane I'll send you some LMs of places I have shopped at. hope it helps.

Jane: Thank you susan

Marie HiJack: UBBERJUGGS!!!!

Now even though this was completely made up it's not too far off the mark from what me and other content creators and customers see in various groups on a day to day basis. These "loyal" and way over zealous supporters are often the alt or best friend of the store they are shouting about. Yeah.... we know who you are... yes we do ;)

So this is what I have to say to you "Gorilla Marketers" in secondlife. Learn some TACT! Learn to actually LISTEN to the person asking the question and help them by giving them CHOICES instead of railroading them into the store you clearly work for or own. Yeah I said it!

But in the end quality and good customer support wins out over shady advertising practices and group IM hijacking.

Shayna Got a Big-O-Butt!

HEHE I decided to dress a little "street" and gave myself a Big-O-Butt. The outfit is a new project from SPANKED due to be released in my main store soon :)

One thing I discovered is the "MySecondLife" page on the main second life website. What I like about it is you can take pictures of your explorations and share them with everyone. It's really neat. You can see more of my second life by visiting
