CINEMA runs until October 31st

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!

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:

Quandary.

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.
