The fantabulosa Sharonspotbottom has pointed me in the direction of My Next Favourite Website.
it is Wiikitty and features cats with Wiis and peripherals.

Reason No. 1001 to get a cat.*

*And indeed a Wii!!!

Second Life toolbar

I stumbled upon this. I have probably been underground while everyone else has been happily using this extensively, mind you.

It is a Second Life toolbar which even has an embedded media player in there so you can listen to SL podcasts etc.*

Cool. Now needs to get in there to supply it with its SL channel, and BlogHud needs a spot there with the RSS feeds from other sites...

What a cool little metaverse tool.

Keep the cross over tools coming!

*Actually, on further investigation I think it is just a radio player - I am not sure if you can load it up with podcast feeds yourself. That would be perfect for me.

Geek valentines

So if you are a geek and you have forgotton about Valentine's Day because you have been too buried in code/games/SL/whatever, check out these geek-specific Valentine's e-cards by Mitch on 4 color rebellion.

Introducing the book

Tech support woes are nothing new, it seems. Via Nick on the SL educators' list, via What is the (next) message.

Gamers get more sex

Ha. This is an interesting bit of gratuitous PR. Gametart, apparently the UK's biggest online games rental company, did a little survey - little it was: only 200 women in the sample - which suggests that women who play digital games have sex more often.

Of our sample of 200 women, those who played video games on average had sex 4.3 times a week while those who didn’t play games only had sex just 3.2 times a week. Perhaps even more promising for gamers is the fact that many of the women that we interviewed who have only recently started playing games said that they now have sex more often than before.

Gosh - a whole 1.1 more times!! The 0.1 being... hmmm....

YouTube star goes mainstream

So YouTube funny gal LisaNova has been spotted for her unique take on situations and comedy (very good looking too) has landed herself a spot on the cast of MadTV, a US sketch show. Well done on her. There is much more of this to come, naturally, but good on this particular character. I find her hilarious.

She says she will continue with YouTube, but I wonder if she will a) have the inclination to or b) be allowed too.

YouTube furries

I think I have found some real life furries* amongst some anime "chicks" on YouTube. Check out rabbitinthem00n's friends too**.If you are unfamiliar with furrie culture online, check out Wikipedia. I want "her" anime mask (not shown in this picture, obviously). Her profile says she is 80. Well, no one really pays attention to that - I am 105 on YouTube after all. But, in this case, she could well be. Who knows?***

*Check out this piece for some Second Life furry background.
**Some of whom border on the slightly dodgy.

***Although her hands don't look like they belong to an 80 year old.

Masturbating cat

OK - so I am disappointed that after the Big Brother furore, Channel 4 has decided to axe their planned Wank Week.

Shame, I was rather hoping they would feature this video.

Time for some Tube Gossip

Time for some more Tube Gossip from the manwhofellasleep. I shall be having to do the tube again soon. Oh how fun.

Taken from 28 December 2006
1. She bought it in New Look for a fiver.
2. Yeah, but how can they justify charging so much for soft drinks?
3. Fuck Christmas. Fuck New Year. Fuck London Underground. No. I'm not drunk. Fuck off.
4. You can call me Mr T-Bone Shabazz.
5. Is anyone going to believe that Ewan McGregor grew that 'tache?
6. Good King Wenceslas came to town...fa la la la la.
7. We could get naked children and cover them in bubble wrap.
8. She's a typical student, hates Tony Blair, hates the government, loves Che Guevera... doesn't really have a brain.
9. CSI's got a plot. It's gimmicky graphics and dead people.
10. Meet Pedro, the racist raisin!

Women of Warcraft

An excellent gallery of the women of World of Warcraft - or should that be Phoarcraft - and who would most likely play them in a film. Via Wonderland.

I especially like Troll (played by, er, Pink) and Tauren played by Big Momma.

I had forgotten how great the Second Life photo pool is on Flickr. A fantastic insight into people's lives there...*

*There is a lovely sofa in one of these pictures - I want it in meatspace.

Meta meta

So I have been checking in every now and again with LonelyGirl15 and co. I sort of binge on the videos all at once.

Anyway, given that the news came out today that the ARG Perplex City (or Perspex City, as I have been calling it for a long time, ahem) has been solved (a UK man found a red cube in a Nothamptonshire woods and bagged 100k), I was intrigued to see this set of videos from tigerlilylynn.

Now I have never participated in an ARG - too short an attention span and little patience - so I am not sure about all the language and arg norms.

Whether she/he is part of the action and planted as a guide, or whether she/he is a true ARG nut just being helpful, I am not sure. But this has all sparked my interest again and I will now have to go watch all these other characters' videos. I need to clone my eyes and brain!

Anna Nicole Smith dead

Well bloody hell. Anna Nicole Smith* has only been found dead. Saw the news in a fleeting instant having just logged into my yahoo mail account. Effective eh?

Post mortem is due to be carried out. Tragic story, it really is. Wonder when the film will be made and who will play her? Pammy?

Second Life London Tube station

Going Underground reports via Andy Green that there is a London Tube station in Second Life now. She* muses about a SL underground system. Joke not. This would be great. I advise anyone who tries out Second Life to go to bloghud and do a serach for trains etc. There you will find links to SL places where you can sit on a train and get taken on tours of places - the IBM island has a good one.

This, as in meatspace, is one of the best ways to be a tourist in my opinion. Sure, it's great to walk around and discover bits of cities that no guide book can tell you about. But I like going on organised transport to get a feel for where's where and what's what in the city. I am also, ultimately, quite lazy.

Anyway, off to check out the station and see if it leads anywhere.**

* Great links here too to videos of lego and dancing on tube platforms.
** Just had an initial search for it - can't find the bloomin thing (please can someone sort out Second Life's search functions??!!) and Andy's blog is damn hard to navigate imho!!
