6:53pm. Not that you would know it. The sky was saturated with pollution and hovering mechanics that took the place of the stars. I remember stars. I remember my mother. NUGen implants haven’t discovered those memories yet.

I know the rain is toxic, but I let it pour on me regardless. It is the baptism of my generation. We are pestilent Christians every minute of every day. God fucking bless us.

The taxi generator is broken. Fuck. Evening is never easy in the city. I check the digital logs on the screen and buck up. It will be a long wait in the rain.

2nd Annual Gourd Hunt!

I’m announcing my 2nd Annual Gourd Hunt at VAUGHAN’S :: house of curiosities. There are 4 gourds each with a separate color mesh top for free in the my main store.

HINT: I sell boys stuff too!

Here is the TP to start the hunt:
Make sure you collect all four!

Love and Halloween Kisses,

CINEMA opens today!

CINEMA is here and I don’t know about you – but I am seriously excited. I have always been a film lover, and this event was so totally perfect for me. Combining inspiration and Second Life into new creations that are so much fun: perfection.

$350 for one or $1200 for he 4pack.

I love Stanley Kubrick. The man was a directorial genius and visionary. In his film 2001: Space Odyssey, he follows an experimental space crew and their rouge computer. This is where we get the line “Open the pod bay doors, Hal.” Although dialogue is few and far between in the movie, visually it is a stunner. Ride this one out, it’s well worth the ending.

$99L for each set or $250L for the 3pack.

Blade Runner is not only a great science fiction movie, it is just a great movie in general. The story is about a detective who hunts down replicants. These are robots who don’t even know they are robots because they have been implanted with human memories. Based on the the book by Philip K. Dick ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep‘. Too cool doesn’t begin to describe it.

$156L for the port and the wound tattoo.

The Matrix…an easy target for a muse because of it’s own place in popular culture. So why not include a spinal port in my new releases? I say, WHY NOT!

$99L for all four colors.

Lastly, Aliens 3 – the one where Ripley dies in the end. Yeah.. I just loved the fact that in the prison colony everyone has head lice. I think in the future there are some definitely opportunities for lice to get ahead…. *giggles*

Now these are ONLY AVAILABLE at the Cinema event. So be sure and check it out. The experience runs from October 13th to the 27th and here’s the rest of the information for ya:

The 13th is fast approaching, so get your lindens ready for this very cool event.


I have quite a quandary on my hands currently. You may remember my last post talking about the BoobieThon Fundraiser I am doing for the first two weeks in October? Well, that tank was a full perm mesh product I bought on SL Marketplace. It was my first mesh purchase and I was eager to play around with the new tool, as I have just recently been able to SEE mesh for the first time.

When I purchased the tank, I found some things I didn’t particularly agree with so I wrote a mediocre review of the item. Here is exactly what I said:

This is my first full perm mesh purchase. There were no instructions included with the package. I also found the texture maps to be painfully fuzzy. Trying to line up any sort of detail wasn’t worth the time. Overall it was a good “lab rat” to test on, but I am a bit disappointed with the provisions.

I gave the item 3 stars and entitled the post “Okay“. (I am telling you this now, because the builder has since removed the item completely from SL Marketplace.)

Admittedly, this graphic was created to get you to read the full blog post.


When I logged into Second Life next, I was greeted by this message from the builder:

Hi Maris, Thanks for buying and trying the Mesh ladies vest tank top fashion template, i am sorry for the experience you had with it i returned your 200 L$ , i like you to know that i am selling fashion kits templates and my customer line is texture makers for mesh clothes, this top sold almost 1000 and it is for sale on the marketplace with 100s of different textures. no-body has reported problem about the uv maps or textures yet, anychance can you please delete the review and send me snapshop of the problem so i can fix it. also at the future you can ask for demos from me when you decide to buy a clothes from my store. or you can ask for a refund directly when you cant texture or you dont like the item.

My name is Marls, but that’ s okay. Everyone messes that up. I felt it was weird that she had preemptively had given me my money back and directly asked me to take down my review. I thought for a long time about what to say in reply. I had no intention of taking down my review, since it was neither bitchy or incorrect. I was giving simple honest feed back. This was my reply:

While I understand your forward behavior to pay me back and ask me to delete my review. I kindly decline.

I thought it was understated and simple – and I paid her back the $200L for the purchase of the item. I do think it was forward of her to just assume I would take back my words. I felt like she was trying to buy me out of my own opinion. Suddenly, I felt I was in this weird alternate universe – or maybe it was just an election season?

When I logged in this evening, I received this openly hostile message from the builder:

Forward Behavior ? You are leaving negative feedback without contacting seller, when seller offer refund and help aswell on top, you are declining, you are very ill intended person , i returned all your lindens 600L$ back to your for all the items you purchase, please keep away from my store, they dont meet your quality expectation so again plase dont buy again from me. always remember not to buy from meli imako. and delete my items since i returned your lindens and i am taking my licence back for the items. Good bye

I have no idea where this came from? Suddenly, I am a midst some weird cat fight that I had no idea would even start! I thought I was allowed to have my opinions? I thought that was the point of “reviews” on SL Marketplace?

Now, I have no idea what to do. My product is up at the BoobieThon Fundraiser and I don’t really want to take it down. This woman has “taken back” the rights by paying me 3 times what I paid for the original mesh AND I can’t find how to send in a ticket to Linden support!! I don’t want to be in bad with the Terms of Service, but at the same time… This is fucked.

Am I just being a bitch?
Should I just take down the product?
Please let me know your opinions.

I am open to hearing them, sincerely. I will gladly take down my fundraiser item if this blows up into I am being a total cunt. I’m totally okay with that. But if this feels as weird to you, as it does to me, lemme know. I feel like I just entered some weird ass twilight zone.


Feel Your Boobies Foundation!

Yep. Boobies. Second Life is having its fifth BoobieThon and VAUGHAN’S is happy to participate! The event is running October 1 to the 13th! Here’s the TP to my stand:

100% Proceeds go to FEEL YOUR BOOBIES!

Here’s more about Feel Your Boobies from the founders:

The Feel Your Boobies Foundation focuses on one simple mission (and we have since 2004): using media and other unconventional outreach to remind young women to ‘feel their boobies’. Over the past few years, provocative breast cancer slogans have become more popular…and while we’re all about a good chuckle, we’d like to make sure our supporters know that we’re more than a funny slogan. Feel Your Boobies® is a call to action that reminds you about a habit that can increase your chances of early detection and potentially save your life.

Why focus solely on the use media to spread or message? That’s simple. Since 2004, this campaign has run out of our Founder, Leigh’s, home in a small town in Pennsylvania. With a shoestring budget and a few dedicated volunteers and workers, Feel Your Boobies has reached an international audience with its message and saved lives (read our testimonials!). Media (social media specifically) makes this possible. With over 300K “likes” on facebook and more than 1 Million Cause supporters…we’re certainly making waves from this tiny PA town.

Why focus primarily on young women? For women who are pre-mammogram age (under 40), “feeling your boobies” is one of the primary ways to get to know your body and detect changes in your breasts. Even as you get older, this habit can help in making sure you identify a change in your breast as soon as it occurs and bring it to your doctor’s attention. Should the change be breast cancer, early detection is the primary way to increase your chances of surviving this disease.

Their focus on the use of social media and unconventional methods as well as their focus on education and prevention makes this a perfect charity for a community of people who come together from all over the world in a virtual space.

We hope that you will join the fun – and the hard work – again this year to raise money for BoobieThon in SL 2012. Please notecard either Serra (Serra Anansi) or me (Eva Bellambi) in world if you would like to volunteer to create or host an event during this week of fund-raising. Whether you can volunteer in that capacity or not, please do plan on attending several of the fun events during the week (a preliminary list of events may be found below), bring friends, and bring your spirit of giving.

Let’s educate men and women about breast cancer and about how they can save their own lives by the simple act of feeling their boobies at least once a month.

See you there!!

Love and Nipple Kisses,

a new alliance.

I have opened up a new shop on the sim Abduction Alley. Chiana Oh, blogger and photographer, invited me to share a space with her on the sim. After locating ourselves in the local church, we found it to be the perfect little home!

The space is filled with her art and some of my products. We really had a good time working together to bring a mish-mash of styles to you, the lovely buyer. We’ve come up with a joint title called VC INDUSTRIES. I have a feeling we will be spreading our alliance wings and producing some one-of-a-kind items for your amusement.

In the meantime, you can enjoy some favorite products of mine 50% OFF. This is ONLY at the Abduction Alley location.
