What am I down with?

Hey y’ulz. What l’il symbol shall I stick on my twavatar so ppl know what I’m down with?

As y’al know, I have a very carefully sculpted personal brand. Some might even call it a ‘work of art’. I have a dream, it looks like this:

Anyways been noticing that some of y’ulle have small l’il symbols on ur twitter avatars, & since I don’t have one I’ve been feeling like a ‘tard who missed the adoption curve bus and now has to lie in this bed of mud that I’m stuck in because I made it’. y’all ever feel like that? Kind of felt like that when everyone was hamming around in shutter shades and my sunglasses were all lame and ‘complete’. Never want that to happen again.

Hate having to overcompensate.

Decided to check out my options:

1. Can put a green filter on my avatar to show that I am ‘socially conscious & aware’ of the bad things happening ‘in the east’ and if you’re a political bro who knows that ‘liberal’ doesn’t actually mean ‘drinking a lot and having sex with ur friends’ then I am ‘down to fuck’ with you.

2. Can put a pink ribbon on my avatar to ‘show my support for breast cancer research’, probably because someone ‘close to me’ has died or suffered from the ‘scourge of the millennium’. Wouldn’t mind this but worried it will reveal that I don’t get that ‘cancer is what happens when u repress ur emotions’ & that enlightened ppl will mutter ‘go work in a soup kitchen’ under their breaths like that poster about how design is cancer.

Wish design didnt cause cancer yall.

Wish design didn't cause cancer y'all.

3. Can put a Silicone Cape twavatar but this will make me look like a ‘tard who didn’t read the part in Outliers about how pioneers don’t move in flocks’, but not rly sure anyone actually ‘read’ all of Outliers because it was a pile of crap.

Unique. Just like everybody else.

This is not going to be an easy decision. Can someone make me a penis symbol? Might as well tell people that ‘I like the cock’, if nothing else. Feel like I should probably address basics before I get onto lofty things like politics, disease and religion. Forward me any suggestions. Peace y’ulz.

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.
