15 days in Liberty City

Here's a time-lapsed video showing 15 days in Grand Theft Auto IV's Liberty City.

It's amazing to me how elaborate virtual sandboxes have become in the last 3 years alone.

2 of 365

I love to visit the Japan Kansai/Mao Sims. I find them very relaxing and a nice change of pace.

There are plenty of spots to take a break and enjoy the detailed textures of the scenery.

These sims also host a roleplaying group set in the time period.

365 days: 1/365

Inspired by Chestnut Rau's blogpost, I decided to forge ahead and begin my own "1 picture a day" project and hopefully keep at it for a full year.

I'm interested in seeing the changes that will be shown through this project. New client-side features, new SL changes, new lighting setups. It will also be a nice retrospective and allow me to remember events that happened throughout SL.

I haven't logged in a few days, so here I am, still in my Hallowe'en costume.

Thanks MJ

Michael Jackson passed away today at age 50.

I have this fun memory of the time my father spent money to buy a brand new radio/cassette sound system for our home.

He purchased these humongous headphones to go with it. After helping him set the whole thing up (hehehe) I plugged the headphones in and turned on the radio. It was around 8 in the evening, and as the sound poured in my ears, "Thriller" was just getting started.

For the first time ever I was hearing perfectly clear music with no outside noise, much better than earphones.

Then there was the time I first witnessed "Thriller" on tv. I was 12 and riveted to the screen as Michael's face was transforming into a werewolf. My uncle Neil then came behind me and screamed. I jumped out of my skin lol.

I'll never forget those times :)

My personal favorite (his peak in my opinion) was in the Smooth Criminal era. The 30's clothes, the moves, the base-ladden soundtrack. Love it.

Thanks for the music MJ.

The future of SL?

This short is amazing. We are moving ahead with virtual tools...I hope I will live to see the day where tools become as ubiquitous as they are displayed here.

...but they keep pulling me back in!!!

Never mind my previous post. 7Seas got me hooked! (pun intended) If I need the need to relax while studying (which, again, I'll be doing probably until June) I log in for a bit and enjoy a nice round of fishing. Leila and I often do it together, sitting side by side at home and online :D

I even leave it on WHILE studying and come back to press F2 ever so often hehhe...add to that a relaxing track from groove salad and I'm all set.

What a time we've had

I just unchecked the "send IMs to my email" in my user preferences of my SL account...

I find myself spending less and less time there, as I find little to do now, or little that interests me.

I'm not quitting, but probably taking a break, with the occasional log ins once in a while. RL has me stacked with a huge amount of studying for certification exams...this will continue until mid-summer.

SL was to me the 60s I've never had. I could be dancing at a party and step on the toes of the person who captured the animation we were all using. Total population was under 90K. New creations were amazing, new features were just being added. It's still like this, but with so many people it becomes hard to stand out.

My last rez day passed unmarked. 3 years. So much has happened since I stepped on there back in Jan 06.

The Shelter is no longer what it used to be, but my Shelter friends will always remain in my heart.

Thank you Shelter. Thank you SL. You have changed my RL for the better, and made me look inside myself.

I'll keep in touch.

I think I want to try out a zune…

I want a zune.

It ties in with MS points (same balance as the xbox live service), it uses the same friends list as xbox live too.


Zune social where you can see what your friends listen to, what their playlists are made of, share music, etc..


14.95/month for unlimited music download, and it’s in mp3 format, NO DRM….I dunno…I’m piqued.
