A New Favorite On Glee

I am so happy that Glee's second season is on! What is making it even better than last season (hard to believe right?) is that more of the cast members are getting a chance to shine. Tina, Mike, Satana are getting some well deserved attention and my newest favorite, Brittany!
This girl is an amazing dancer, nice singing voice and has some of the funniest lines.

"I'm pretty sure my cat's been reading my diary."

"So, Hairography. It works best when you pretend like you're getting tasered. So you just move your head around and pretend like you're spazzing and stuff. You guys, it's like cool epilepsy."

Mr. Schue: "Who can tell me what a ballad is?"
Brittany: "A male duck."
Later, as everyone picks names from a hat:
"I bet the duck's in the hat."

"Did you know that dolphins are just gay sharks?" (pause) "Yeah!"

"I've been here since first period. I had a cold and I took all my antibiotics at the same time and now ... I can't remember how to leave."

"People think I went on vacation, but actually I spent all summer lost in the sewers."

At the dentist:
"The room is like the one in the spaceship where I got probed."

Talk Like A Pirate

Sunday is Talk Like Pirate Day which we commemorated at Cherry18 at our Friday party.

I seriously have considered keeping the eyepatch full time, but how would it fit this outfit?

Another cover better than the original?

No disrespect to Shontelle, but I think this cover is better.

Am I a fan?
I so want her voice.

Rah, Rah, Rah!!

I had to show this off. The Second Life Cheer squad has the cutest cheer uniform based on the Cheerios uniform from Glee. where better to show it off than at the SL Cheer Squad Stadium.

I know I didn't crop it down, but i do love the wide screen views I have now.

Decisions, Decisions

With the demise of Emerald what viewer to use?
Do I trust the new Phoenix team, not 100%, but I give them the benefit of the doubt, for now, and they do have the LL blessings at present.
The Emergence viewer as far as i can tell was never meant to be more than a stop gap solution and now that Phoenix is up and running and will be hopefully maintained scrupulously, Emergence seems impractical.
I ran across the Ascent Viewer, which in the past had it's own share of problems with rumors of being a malicious viewer and so on, but apparently cleaned so it is now on the approved TPV list.
I have tested them both out and, at least for now, I am favoring the Ascent Viewer.
No having anything to to do with trust or any of that, it just seems to work a bit more reliably than Phoenix (bouncing boobs very inconsistent in Phoenix-if i can get them to work at all).
It looks and feels much like the old Emerald and the now Phoenix and i just want to be able to get my boobs to jiggle if I want.

I took these two pictures, one on the Phoenix the other on the Ascent and I cant see a quality difference.
So Emerald is dead. Long live Phoenix. Phox and Arabella are banished and rumored to be plotting on “Virtual World Web” and the world has continued spinning SL did not come to and end and the pixel world still revolves without their drama, stupidity and a bit of racism (If you listen to the recordings on Youtube you will hear that sneak out) and let us look for a brighter future (okay even I gagged on that last bit of Pollyannaish hype).
Better said regarding Emeraldgate, "Move along nothing to see here".
P.S. In the pictures, the top is from Nyte & Day, the skirt is from Sn@tch(part of an outfit called Kick and Fling), the hair is from Truth and the shoes are from N-Core.

Requiem For My Old Computer

It had to happen just before the TGIF party but my trusty old Compaq gave it up and I needed a quick replacement.
Fortunately I had been planning on upgrading soon and had my eye on a new Gateway.
Now powered with 8 gigs of ram and 1TB hard drive I am racing through SL and browsing wonderfully fast. I am so pleased this machine is lean and Windows 7 seems like a treat after the nightmares of XP and Vista.

I had most everything of importance backed up on an external drive already so I lost very little in the demise of the Compaq.
This did leave me in a dilemma. Which viewer to use? I had planned on switching over to Emerald, but with Emerald in disgrace now ultimate demise of the Emerald viewer, I wasn't exactly sure where to go.
Imprudence worked quite nice, but I heard a rumor about the Emergence viewer. It appears to be a temporary viewer cleaned up a bit, by a former Emerald developer. It isn't on the approved 3rd party viewers yer but at least it isn't blacklisted either.
Ill be watching to see if the Phoenix viewer ever gets LL approval as a third party viewer. I can't say the team is worthy of a great deal of trust as it is made up, mostly of the former Emerald Team.
I may give it a try with a close eye on the news. I still have Imprudence to fall back on.

Just Catching Up On Some Reading

I am still around just been busy.
