2nd Rez Day – Retrospective

Posted in Observations, SecondLife®, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on December 16, 2008 by hawksrock

So I have this big tradition of sitting down and writing a reflective post on my rez day to look back and share all my learnings with those younger than myself so hopefully they won’t hafta learn the hard way like I did.   Okay, yeah so I totally just BS’ed that line, and I have only had one other rez day so it isn’t like a long-standing tradition and all, but whatever!

It just feels like I should say something since I did last year here.   Since I did a top 25 list last year, let’s see if I have learned 10 more this year.


1)  Being a premium member doesn’t really enhance your experience any unless you are a land baron.

2)  It is all about the relationships.   Period.  I get more excited about a great convo with friends, than the coolest build in the entire metaverse.

3)  Sometimes it is better to sit a day on a heated post than to post it, but you will get more traffic and honesty if you just hit the go button.

4)  Plurk is quickly becoming my new SL.   If we started streaming music while plurking as DJ’s it would meet about 80% of my satisfaction I get from SL.

5)  Don’t be afraid to cut emo’s from your list rather than just watching them cut themselves and tell you every little detail of it.   It gets pretty old and predictable fast.

6)  Not only do a lot of dudes play ugly women AV’s and think they are hiding it (FAIL)  but also women play hot male AV’s and hide it well (DOH!).

7)  If you start a relationship with someone’s alt.   They are gonna cheat on you within the year.

8)  If you make something you enjoy into work, then you aren’t going to enjoy it anymore.

9)  A long conversation over a slow dance is ten times more meaningful than over IM or while standing around.

10) It is possible to find RL love in SL, and to make it work.   🙂


Starting a Revolution…

Tonight Rosie & I said our final (shup, for reals) good-bye to MGG2SL. We had discussed breaking off from the MG status & creating a new blog for awhile. I believe that in the over a year that MGG2SL was around we did some good, had some laughs, and will always remmy what it meant to us. I removed the rest of the contributors, leaving only Rosie & myself. Hopefully for as long as blogger/blogspot lives, so will MGG2SL in archives.

In our search for a new outlet of non-fluffed SL blogging, Hawks approached me & Rosie with a new idea. What if AWNM & MGG2SL merged & snatched up some other awesome talent from across the grid? What an fucking fabulous idea… and so it was born –


6 of the bestest bloggers + one mediocre one all on one blog, bringing you truth, justice & the SL way!

Twice Stolen!

Stole this off Kitty’s blog, but thought it was cool.

A Day in the Life:

Edit:  I was informed that this is too small and that many of you might be to lazy to click it by my editorial staff, therefore I have a newer bigger one that you can see for your viewing pleasure that only took the editorial staff a mere 1 minute to generate.   Enjoy!

A magician… hmmm… interesting

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on June 27, 2008 by hawksrock

I saw this little tarot card gimmick making the rounds, and for some reason it struck my curiosity… so here is a little more insight into me. Haha

You are The Magician

Skill, wisdom, adaptation. Craft, cunning, depending on dignity.

Eloquent and charismatic both verbally and in writing,
you are clever, witty, inventive and persuasive.

The Magician is the male power of creation, creation by willpower and desire. In that ancient sense, it is the ability to make things so just by speaking them aloud. Reflecting this is the fact that the Magician is represented by Mercury. He represents the gift of tongues, a smooth talker, a salesman. Also clever with the slight of hand and a medicine man – either a real doctor or someone trying to sell you snake oil.

What Tarot Card are You?
Take the Test to Find Out.

Thank you for the bestest birthday evah…

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on June 21, 2008 by hawksrock

So basically my birthday festivities started off last night when I arrived at my place to find it all decorated with balloons and streamers.   What an awesome surprise that was.   Then we had a great day today, where I spent the morning with my kids, and then the evening with Jell attending a free outdoor Jazz concert, known locally as Jazz in the Woods.   The first woman was sort of okay…  lol.   She just butchered a rendition of Killing Me Softly by the Fugees, that just about made me wanna call Lauryn Hill up and be like, can’t you sue somebody over that?   I mean vocal gymnastics are cool and all, but she did it up pretty awesome the first time around… ya know!

Luckily, she was just the opening act and things just got better and better as the evening progressed.   The second guy was Grady Nichols, and man could he play the sax!   Awesome!   I really loved a couple of his songs, especially one he called “Bad Attitude.”   He lost a little coolness factor when he said he was inspired to play Jazz by the Weather Channel when he was growing up, but he made up for it with an awesome sax!

The headliner, was a group called Average White Band.  Of course the first thing you notice is that one of the band members is black, and it kinda makes you wonder how he felt joining up with this band.   Hey man, we got a great gig for you where they are needing a kick ass bass player… and you are just the man for it!   He is like, sweet what a great gig.  Then signs the contract and shows up to his first show, to learn the name of the band is Average White Band, and is like ahhh shit!   lol.   I don’t know the story, but again, they were great and very fun to listen to.

One thing I have figured out though, is that somehow attending a live event with Jell is exactly the same in RL as it is in SL.   We like to people watch…  we like to joke around…  we like to talk dirty…  

Just a couple of general observations:

1)  Gender neutral people (ie women who look like men who look like women) really enjoy events which utilize the johnny on the spot bathroom system, cuz they don’t have to get called out by picking one line to stand in by gender.

2)  When you get older sometimes it is hard to determine if a mosquito is hanging off your ear lobe or if it is a tuft of hair.

3) Old people cuddling/being affectionate is very cute.   Old people tonguing each other right in front of where you are sitting, is kind of enough to turn your stomach.   I still hope I am one of the old people who is tonguing Jell, and making other people squirm someday.

4) Younger people don’t necessarily appreciate cultural things like Jazz, but if there is a big incline hill to roll down, football to be played, funnel cakes, and a 20 ft fountain to run through then all is well with the world.

Most of all I just wanna thank all of you who read Jell’s last post and in your mind’s eye for a flit of a second wished me a happy birthday, but were too down on life to comment!  A big thanks for the good vibes I was getting all day long!  I could feel em transmuting to my brain, via the electrostatic currents.   Or it might have just been all the incense and pot smoking fumes from the concert… not sure which!   🙂

Just messing with ya!   Most of all I really wanna thank Jell for putting on the bestest birthday bash/extravaganza evah, and it is already 10:45 pm and the festivities are just beginning.   I mean we haven’t even had ice cream cake yet…   :p

The Rules of the King… Burger King® that is.

Posted in Real Life, The Traveling Burger King® Crown, Uncategorized with tags , , , , on April 30, 2008 by ♥JellyBean♥

Laws of the Crown

  • Acquire a Burger King® crown from your local Burger King® (don’t have one? You can’t play!)
  • Whoever places the crown on his/her head first, then in a loud voice proclaims, “I am the King!” is from that moment forward, in charge. Rule ends if crown is removed (see Coup d’etat). Crownings can happen anywhere, at anytime.

Advanced Play

  1. There can only be one King.
  2. The King always gets his/her way.
  3. The King must speak with some kind of cool accent.
  4. The King makes all the important decisions governing selection of t.v. channels, movies, radio stations, as well as popular activities like snowboarding, pool hopping, and cow tipping (hahaha! Mooooo! hahahaha!). The King also determines who gets the remote, who rides “shotgun” and, of course, who pays.
  5. Rule ends when crown is removed for more than 3 seconds. (See Three Second Law)
  6. Disagreement with the King results in a “penalty”. This is decided by the King. Common penalties include: forfeiture of fries, surrender of video game controller and banishment from office cubicle.

Three Second Law

The King’s rule ends when crown is removed from their head for any reason, accidental or otherwise. The first person to exclaim, “One… Two… Three… King” may claim the crown.

In the Event of a Tie

If two people crown themselves King simultaneously, the person whose birth date is closet to December 4, 1954 (date of the first Burger King® restaurant opened) is King.

Coup D’etat

If everyone agrees you completely suck as King, your rule may be renounced. This constitutes a Coup d’etat. A new King may be crowned if the group can reach a unanimous decision. If not, the Three Second Law applies.


If you are eating in a Burger King® restaurant, your rules extends all the way to the edge of the parking lot. Off restaurant grounds, your rule extends to a radius of 10 feet around you in any direction.

Warning: The Burger King® crown is made of paper. Your rule may end prematurely if crown is exposed to water and/or flame.

Rosie says, “This is not Burger King® you skank!”

The Blogger Rules of the Traveling Burger King® Crown

Okay so back in the day Aka, Rosie & I had a group in Second Life® called the “Burger King Skanks”. We had gestures, and KO even made us props (BK® bag, Whopper, etc). Rosie came up with an idea of us to play a game called “the Traveling Burger King® Crown” which is just a spin on Aka’s “… says “Hi!” (see Flickr). We take the crown & text pictures to flickr & eachother’s cell phones of places we’ve put the crown around where we live (New York, California & Kansas). We’ll also be keeping track of it with our blogs. So now when you see it on here you won’t be tote confused. You can join in the fun too, just go get your crown, take pics & blog it! C’mon Chestnut, Aly & Cierra, you know you wanna. :p
