jason walked in with half a box filled with Lindt balls after lunch. it sent amo into a shrieking fit, so dan poured them all over her. happy times.

The balls destroy Dan’s Low GI resolve.

cool stuff i’ve seen around

sneaks

sneaker goodness, old pic of mine from a shoot. shoes and legs belonged to Leannie, the stylist on  set.

wolf shirt

wolf shirt! i want to start a wolf shirt picture collection, send me yours if you have any. this was in a strange little bar in pretoria on my first night in joburg.

pokemon shoes

emma brought these back from topshop in london, but they didn’t fit her so she was giving them away. sadly they didn’t fit me either.

duckie

another rad thing from the design files of my friends jean and stuart, this giant rubber duck was floating in their pool at their housewarming, also from @Home. it doesn’t look giant but it’s big, trust me.

second night in second life

i’m not really feeling it yet. my connection is quite slow though, it’s taking a long to to render my surroundings. especially in the busy places – like “The Shelter” – where you can be eased into how it works and learn basic stuff like How To Dance. so i end up hanging at places like this:

panda place

what is this?i vaguely remember clicking ‘little japan’ and then ‘teleport’. you click a lot of things in this game. guess this is it. it’s listed as a ‘Popular Place’ according to traffic. above the panda there were some words saying ‘Panda Store Teleport’ and then i right-clicked it and found myself in a mall of sorts, advertising everywhere, so much so that it made me feel nauseous. i quite literally got lost in this one store window – wait, a store window – for 5 minutes.

window

it appears that sometimes the screen goes just goes all wonky and your legs stop moving and you bumble around in this arb world going what the hell is going on, and then you walk out the store window. it was like a bad dream. i still don’t have any friends. but i do have leopard skin boots and i’ve let my hair down. and that’s about all i can stomach tonight.

a narrated foray into Second Life

so for various technical reason i haven’t been able to get stuck into Second Life yet, but last night i discovered that they are now Vista compliant, and my fancy little graphics card can finally be put to some sort of use. the sign up was fairly painless – the hardest part was deciding on a surname. they don’t have the greatest selection. eventually after umming and ah-ing over names like Dustblood and Krostwaithe, i settled on Nester. TheHyrax Nester. then i walked around a bit, just trying to orientate myself, before discovering that i could take off all my clothes and walk around starkers if i wanted to. which is exactly what i did.

¬†Second Life has created its own genre in advertising and branding so i’m going to be exploring it slowly for the benefit of our clients, and for my own personal education. it must be known that things like Second Life take up a lot of time, and for the moment all i’ve got time to do is walk around naked. i’m hoping to work out how to dance on one leg naked by the end of the week.
