AVI POLL – ADVICE FROM 8+ YEAR RESIDENTS IN SECOND LIFE ON WHAT KEEPS LIFE INTERESTING: JOSH (THOMAS1 BELLIC) REPORTING




OK.  So..You are in a slump.  You find that doing the regular circuit of clubs, night after night, week after week, year after year is becoming a bit repetitive.  Surrounding yourself with the same music...same people…same entertainment.  It is bound to become perhaps a bit “overly familiar”.  Now days, during a worldwide pandemic when your favorite sports teams, outdoor concert venues, movie theaters, and in many places even the familiarity and distraction of the workplace has been replaced by teleworking or worse…disbanded altogether…we may seek to engage with others in one of the only remaining “safe” avenues to do so.  SecondLife.  But after a while, even that can seem a bit tired if you let it.
So, with that thought in mind, I put on my intrepid SL Enquirer tag and hit the road, determined to learn the secrets to longevity here in the Virtual World’s most phenomenal platform – SecondLife.  The folks chatted with have established some serious creds here,  They have seen the best of times, and the worst  times.  They lived thru seeing many of their favorite clubs and venues rise to fame...and then disappear just as swiftly.  Places like Greenies, or Toby;s Blues and other favs were here and gone from our lives.  These folks have seen the advent of Mesh…they flirted with Sansar, and now are dealing with the challenges of Baked on Mesh as this most wonderful, most intriguing of social platforms continues to evolve.

So I set out to learn advice from 8+ year old avies about what keeps SecondLife interesting. The first person I met was Amy.  First rezzed on October 12, 2009, Amy has been here 10 years, 9 months
Josh Bellic (JB):  So tell me Amy.  What do you do to keep SL interesting after all these years?
Aɱɣ (amylee.zane): Well my activities in SL is a very busy schedule. I start my mornings with taking care of my SIM which is a motorcycle riding SIM, Then I am part of the SL Coast Guard and I am kept busy with water patrols for now and whatever they offer. Sometimes I go diving, sometimes sky diving and I just completed a medical first aid training. Then I role play as an Attorney on various SIM's. After a complete day I come to relax in a club like Fogbound, where I love to just unwind at the at the end of  my day, kick back and enjoy the people and music.


As I was perving profiles, the next guy just kinda jumped out at me, as having possibly one of the oldest Avis I have ever seen. This Gentleman prefers to remain anonymous, and requested I identify him only by his initials. DZ was rezzed on 21 November, 2004, and has been a SL resident for 15 years and 8 months.

JB: Greetings Sir.  I am a reporter for the SL Enquirer.  This week we are polling long-term residents of SL and asking about their experiences here. Would you be willing to participate?
DZ:  "Well...honestly...I would prefer to decline....I am not one for publicity...The paparazzi can become quite an invasive experience.  The next thing you know my girlfriend is harassed...then the drones over the backyard...Then when I am out on my yacht...they just pull up.
JB:  I understand. Sir. Although I am sure our readers would enjoy hearing a response from one as senior as yourself. 
DZ:  It really has not been so interesting lately. I am just not a very public person. You can blank my name...use my initials…and a shadowed version of a likeness of my face. And, the answer is simple....I find that to keep it interesting I need to want to make it interesting...and to surround myself with interesting people.....The real trick to it is to let your creativity flow and do that in a way that encompasses all the resource here you have available....And, I do not mean by standing around in clubs watching the people dance....You need to create a source of involvement. If you can do that...you can shape everything.

The next person I approached was a gent by the name of OldeSoul Eldemar (oldesoul).  Oldsoul was rezzed on May 19, 2012, and in 8 years, 2 months old.
JB:  Tell me please.  What do you do to keep SL interesting after all these years?
OldeSoul Eldemar:  Do you want a short answer or long?  I joined my RL wife in  SL, while caregiving as a way for us to stay together, thinking it would be much better than phone calls.  It was! It took a little exploring to find my "place" but working with Relay For Life as a Captain and fundraiser is very rewarding,  I have found that working as an event coordinator for events across the grid is a great way to meet folks and discover new worlds.

The next person to answer my question was the lovely Augi (augustlilac.luckstone).  Rezzed on February 4, 2010, Augi has been here for 10 years, 6 months.
Augi:  Can I say that I like having pixel sex with my BF? Can you print that? OK…let me restate “I like how creative some people can be with the animations - especially the adult furniture” How’s that?  I have been here over ten years and in that time I have made some GREAT friends. Some I may never hear from again and others I have had many years. One such friend I have is someone I met the first week 
I logged onto sl. We are still friends. I like the fact that I meet people from all over the world. People whom I would never even known existed being thousands of miles away. I occasionally hostess at a club and I model for HUSH magazine.  This is my fantasy world where I come to relax and get away from RL pressure


JB:  Thanks, Augi. And if I may add, your BF is one Lucky Bastard.



BellaRose (belladarkside) hails from Canada.  She was rezzed on October 10, 2011 and has been a resident for 8 years and 9 months.
JB:  Tell me please, Bella.  You have been here for more than 8 years.  What is it that keeps you coming back?
BellaRose (belladarkside): Well, I enjoy listening to good music.  That is my most interesting use of my time, and there is plenty pf good music here.  I am also very curious about the intricacies of avatar design.  I have followed with great interest the evolution to mesh, and now even the new Baked On Mesh – BOM.  I am an artist myself, so I can say absolutely that there are many really GREAT designers here in SL  I am really impressed.  One of the things I often like to do is go to designer-hosted events here.

Our final comments today come from Mr. Austin Welles.   This 13 year, 7 month resident was rezzed on Christmas Day, 2006
JB:  Austin, you have certainly see a lot in your 13+ years here.  What advise could you give to newer residents here who may be getting bored with their SL experience? How would you advise newer residents who are getting bored?
Austin Welles: I try not to take things too seriously. This is a place to imagine and experience. Live the moments of SL.  One never knows what might be around the next corner.
JB:  Anything else? 
AW: Oh yes.  You should take a break once in a while
JB: A Break?
AW: Yes…well…like a week here or there.  When you return you will find that the colors are always more vivid and the feelings renewed


So there you have it folks.  Feeling bored?  Then change things up.  Explore a new passion. Develop a new skill.  Live long...Love deeply…Laugh often.  These are the true keys to keeping your SL interesting.  Come to think of it, you might try these same things to kick up your RL as well.

Until next time, this is Josh Bellic…Signing off.  Aloha!

GeekSpeak – Will humanity survive the next 500 years? Join the discussion Saturday August 8th at 12PM SLT



Nothing lasts forever.  And there are so many things that can go wrong for our species.  

Can we survive everything that nature throws at us?  Killer viruses, rogue asteroids, a change in the orbit of the earth?

Or do we face danger from ourselves?  Nuclear war?  Or biological warfare?

Do you think we should be worried about human extinction?  What do you see as the most dangerous threat to our species?  Or do you think there is no realistic threat and we should stop worrying about total annihilation?  Come and join the discussion, and bring your friends because you will need them when the shit hits the fan!

IM Vulcan Viper, who teaches a meditation class every Wednesday at the GeekSpeak auditorium at 1pm SLT, if you have ideas for new subjects.

Congratulations are in order for Avalon Chrome! The New Face of LUXE Paris!- Lanai Jarrico Reporting...




This contest took place over a course of a month for judges to vote behind the scenes as the contest came to an end at the finale on Sunday July 26th.  A total of 12 finalists walked the runaway in style and grace  and 12  judges involved in fashion, business and media convened at a 4 hour competition.  


Each contestant was a star in their own right. From a fierce runway model for over a decade to the beginner who handled herself like a pro .  These ladies did a fabulous job! It was a pleasure to serve on the board of judges for the 2nd year in a row and an honor to present the new Face of LUXE Paris… Avalon Chrome!




SLE: Hi Avalon,  I want to congratulate you on your title! After months of hard work it has to feel amazing! What were your first thoughts the moment your name was called? 

Avalon:  Thank you!  I couldn’t be more honoured to be chosen as the 2020 LUXE Paris brand ambassador and am so excited to work with co-owners Parisian Skytower, & Mika Palmyra and COO Julia Brand.  At first, I was in complete disbelief. But once I picked myself up off the floor and let it sink in, I thought, “Wow, I guess hard work really does pay off!”

SLE: Where are you from and how did you discover Second Life and your passion for fashion in SL?

Avalon: I’m from southwestern Canada (British Columbia). I discovered SL right at the end of its beta period, so my first avatar who’s now 17 yrs old,  is one of the originals. That avatar was mostly for RP games as there was really no fashion industry to speak of. But as SL evolved, I created Avalon specifically for the fashion industry as it’s a way for me to express my creativity. I love styling Avalon and then photographing the different looks in unique ways. I also love blogging (www.chroniclesofchrome.com) about it as it’s a great way to support the industry I love so much.


SLE: You have a very distinctive vintage elegant look from beachwear to formal. Can you share with our readers your inspiration for the outfits you chose for the competition?

Avalon: Although I have fun styling everything from glam to AG, to Fantasy, I'm most comfortable wearing stylish haute couture, while adding just a hint of gracious sensuality and a dab of edginess. Thankfully, my style sensibilities seem to be in alignment with the LUXE Paris brand. 
It was how the garments made me feel when I put them on that inspired my styling.  For the Shopping on the Promenade theme, I wore the sassy little polka dot dress called “Larimar”. When I tried it on, I felt graceful and sophisticated and when I added the classy arm wrap and the flowing bow sash from the “Fabulous” gown, I felt like doing the Swan Dance across the room. So I ran (or pliéd) with the whole ballet theme and before I knew it I was wearing en-pointe style heels and choosing poses resembling ballet stances. I playfully named this look, “A Ballet of Polka Dots”.
The AMARYLLIS gown I wore for the opulent Met Gala theme invoked some powerful emotions in me when I tried it on. I was completely taken by how feminine and regal the stunning peach and gold gown made me feel. I was also moved by an overwhelming and unexplainable feeling of hope and joy.  My vision was to express a celebration of femininity while invoking a sense of hope and joy to a world that could really use that right now.  I named this styling, “The Divine Feminine” to not only honour the gown itself but to celebrate all women.  The chiffon train, which pours out of a golden rose bloom, was created from the veils and rose accessory of the KRYSTELLE bridal gown. The regal golden fans I wore on my head and back feature decorative birds to symbolize hope for mankind during these challenging times and the promise of a bright, new future.
And by the way, I chose to mix and match elements of different outfits to show the jury that I am creative and versatile. Also, I purposely added as much gold as possible to accessorize this gown because gold is part of the LUXE Paris branding. 



SLE: What inspired you to enter the contest to be the new face of Luxe Paris?

Avalon:  It’s more of a question of who inspired me. Belle Roussel of Chop Zuey Couture Jewellery, A woman I adore and hugely admire, contacted me one day while  I was modelling in the store. She told me about the LUXE Paris Look of the Year pageant and sent me the link. She encouraged me to enter saying, “I think you’d be perfect for it” followed by some very flattering comments about my sense of style. I really trust Belle’s instincts, so without question, I hopped off that pose stand and raced over to LUXE Paris to quickly get an outfit so I could enter. I had it styled and photographed in about an hour, just making it in time for that round’s submission deadline.  I’m really grateful for Belle, who’s always been so supportive and encouraging of my career. Had it not been for her faith, encouragement and confidence in me,  I wouldn't have had the wherewithal, confidence and determination to enter this pageant and succeed.




SLE: Have you gotten any advice from Quinte; last year’s winner about this role?

Avalon: I had a great chat with her at one of the rehearsals. She’s a lovely person and a wonderful role model. I asked her about her role as LUXE Paris’s Brand Ambassador and what she enjoyed about it. She gave me a few tips but mostly her advice was to have fun with it. I’ll do my best to follow in her footsteps in representing LUXE Paris with grace and elegance.  



SLE: Second Life is a grid with endless creativity and imagination. Would you say SL is just a game or an extension of your real life? How has your experience in this virtual impacted you?

Avalon: First of all, I don’t believe that a social-based MMO environment can be experienced exclusively as a game.  There are real friendships and feelings that develop here that make it difficult to be emotionally removed. So for me, it’s definitely an extension of my RL. 

You’re right in pointing out how endlessly creative and imaginative Second Life is. I’ve watched this world grow from infancy to what it is today and am still awestruck by the ingenuity of its residents.  

Second Life has helped me grow in more ways than I can count. I’ve made some amazing friends here who inspire me to be the best version of myself in RL and SL. On a professional level, I’ve been able to use my SL editorial modelling and photography skills as a means of perfecting my RL technical skills, which has made me a more creative and effective graphic designer. As a result, I now have my own successful graphic design company. SL also provides a balance for me, since I can often get too focused on RL work and forget to have fun. But when I get involved in the process of styling, photographing and blogging, hours pass in what seems like minutes - a good sign that you’re enjoying yourself.



SLE: What are your plans holding this prestigious title? 

Avalon:  I plan to go over and above the traditional role of a brand ambassador by using my RL and SL skills to support LUXE Paris in whatever capacity they need me.  As I mentioned earlier, in RL I’m a graphic designer and I also have an associate degree in public relations. In SL I’m a model, photographer and fashion blogger. So when LUXE Paris needs photography, graphic design or PR services, I’m there for them.  As LUXE Paris’s brand ambassador,  I’ll represent the brand visually and through effective, on-brand communication as well as blogging about the products. Also, as the winner of the title, I was given a VIP membership to the prestigious ONE on ONE modelling agency. So I’ll represent LUXE Paris on and/ or off the runway of any shows that feature their product line.  Overall, I’m completely dedicated to collaborating with and supporting Luxe Paris to help them achieve great heights in their success.



SLE: What advice would you give to models who might be inspired by you to  try for next year’s Look of the Year Face of Luxe Paris Competition?

Avalon: The Look of the Year contest is so much more than a beauty pageant, it’s an extensive job interview and should be treated as such. This is a unique and wonderful opportunity to represent an established haute couture designer for a full year. So, put your business hat on and think in terms of what LUXE Paris stands for. Learn as much about the company as you can. Also, research what a brand ambassadors’ job is and think about what your strengths are and how you could benefit the brand. In other words, think in terms of what you can do for the brand instead of what it can do for you. Also, if the opportunity to improve your skills presents itself during the pageant process, grab it. No matter how seasoned a model you are, be open to learning something new. Show them in every possible way that you're collaborative and perfect for this role. And finally, even though it is a competition, support and encourage the other contestants. As women, we need to elevate and empower each other.

SLE: Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?

Avalon: Wearing this tiara is a big step for me.  So far, I’ve spent most of my time in SL in blissful obscurity and this all happened so wonderfully fast. In all honesty, I’m still in a bit of shock.  Being a brand ambassador to an established designer is something I’ve always wanted but I didn’t think was within my reach.  However,  if winning this title has taught me anything, it’s that if you put your mind to it, push through the difficult times, work hard and have a little faith in yourself, you can make the most seemingly impossible dreams come true.

Events related to Online Slots in 2020

Well, this would normally be a fun old article to write, since online slot events at Slots Baby are fast and furious and plentiful in normal years. Of course, this is not a normal year, and therefore there are issues with this. COVID 19 has taken away the chance for many people to enjoy these events in the format they would normally have been in, and although some are becoming virtual events, others are disappearing altogether. Let’s see what’s what.  

Slot Tournaments

Possibly the biggest event with regards to internet slots in any season, not to mention 2020, are slot competitions. And although these cannot occur in physical casinos as they would have in previous, less dangerous times, they are able to still carry on in a purely virtual model and that is definitely a thing that a lot of individuals are glad to be behind. It is fortunate we have internet, isn’t it? Imagine lockdown without it, and not being able to play slots at all! 
Online tournaments are quicker and easier much to plan than any physical type of slot tournament, therefore it may even be that lots of developers decided to produce competitions where there was not one before. So if you’re bored and you want to find something exciting to do, search online for a slot tournament that you can enter. You might not win, but it will be fun to play. 

Different Games

Although not an event you are able to go to, the launch of several new games is just what we'd like in this unusual time – we have to have something to occupy us, after all! And one can find loads of new video games coming along making everybody happy in 2020. Several of the brand new releases include:
• Pink Elephants 2
• Secrets of the Temple
• The Vault
• Hot Cross Bunnies: Game Changer
• All Win FC
• Electric Avenue 
Each and every one of those games looks a great deal of fun, and remember, it does not matter what sort of slot game you would like playing, because there'll certainly be something that tickles your fancy coming soon. 

The Global Gaming Expo

Today, although numerous significant events are cancelled for reasons that are obvious, the Global Gaming Expo is happening from 5th to 8th October in Las Vegas. This particular situation may change, obviously, but until it does we’re being hopeful and fingers crossed that many people will be able to go to this fantastic event and see the launch of many new games, including slots. 

These gaming expos are usually great fun, and you will meet up with several of the greatest gaming stars and get to play games which have yet to be released!

Is Losing Streak In Slots a Thing?


Unfortunately, the only guarantee in gambling is that you will hit more losing streaks than winning ones. Losing streaks also tend to last longer too. This is hardly surprising when you consider the gambling set up at a casino. All the games come with a house edge and this is vital to the survival of the casino. Slots at Dream Jackpot have the biggest house edge of all games but it cannot be too large otherwise punters will lose interest and not return to play if they can never win. You also have to factor in that your fate is in the hands of a computer chip known as a RNG or Random Number Generator. This microchip actually creates slot spins through number sequences and this also turns the odds in the casino’s favour as well.

A Cautious Approach Is Best 

If you do not have the financial security of high rollers then it is best to be cautious with your slots play and consider all the odds that are stacked against you. Taking up multiple bonus offers at various reputable casinos can help you ride through losing streaks with casino cash rather than your own. You do have to put in your own deposit in to trigger the free cash bonus, but this usually means that you have double the funds and this can give you more of a chance of turning a losing streak into a winning one. 

Be Gamble Savvy 

There is a fine art to gambling and practice and mistakes make perfect. The hardest part of gambling is judging when to cash out. If you are on a winning streak it is very tempting to carry on spinning as you can find yourself in a once in a blue moon situation. A sensible approach is to make small regular withdrawals as you play. This prevents you from losing everything should your luck suddenly turn. Other smart gambling moves are to set deposit limits on all your accounts that accurately reflect your budget. Deposit limits are the best way of limiting your spending and losses.

Other Tips To Prevent Losing Streaks

Some punters swear by the RTP score of slots. This is also known as the Return To Player percentage and the general rule is that the higher the score, the more likely the slot you are playing will return a percentage of your stake back to you. Some players do not touch slots with scores of 95% or lower.  If you want to put the theory to the test then it’s best to spin a game that has an RTP score of 97% or higher. These slots do not guarantee wins, but they could be exactly what is needed to break a slots losing streak.

 Final Thoughts


Slots losing streaks to exist and so do winning streaks, losing streaks happen more often due to the house edge games have over punters. Setting deposit limits and playing games with high RTP scores can help halt slots losing streaks.

Lanai’s Diary: How would you have handled a Bull in a china shop situation?



The craziest thing happened yesterday and I wanted to share it in hope I can get some insight  from SLE fans on what could have been done differently or how you would have handled a situation like this.

In the midst of the Covid 19 pandemic many are staying home and limiting themselves to the people they come in contact with. It is becoming the norm for many people, especially those who work outside of the home. At the end of a long day, people just want to come home, shower, have dinner and relax to repeat the cycle the next day,

So, it is Monday evening. I just finished up dinner with the family and settled on the back deck to just chill and soak up the tail end of summer. I look through the sliding glass door to see a complete stranger waddling her way through my foyer, kitchen and to the back door like a bull in a china shop where she opens it and drunkenly asks where Marie was. Stumped by this display of a stranger's sloppy drunk debacle. My husband got up from his seats asking who she was.  I followed behind as he ushered her back out the front door. Mind you she was not wearing a mask, nor was she coherent enough to realize she just walked into the wrong house.  She reached for her car keys and attempted to get in her car which was in our driveway about 6 inches from the garage door. You can see she clearly hit a curb as her front passenger side tire was low on air.

The girl looked in her early to mid 20’s. My husband told her if she tried to drive off he was calling the cops. That was enough to make her sober up for a second and plead for him not to do that. He asked her to call someone to come pick her up.

By this time, I was on the front porch with my two adult kids who looked completely bewildered at this drunk woman swaying in the driveway. About 10 minutes passed by the time she was able to make out the numbers in her phone and call…. Her mother. I could hear her mother's voices freaking out but could not make out what she was saying. The woman then tried to hand the cellphone to my hubs who was holding his hand out telling her to keep her distance and put it on speaker phone.  He went on to provide our address to the woman on the other end.

Within 15 minutes an SUV pulls up at the edge of the driveway and a man walks out. It must have been her father who seemed to know exactly what to do as if this wasn't the first time he has bailed her out of a situation like this. Her mother was very thankful to us for making sure she did not get back in her car and revealed this was not the first time this happened. Apparently her daughter wrecked her previous car and has no memory of it.

The girl's father got in the car with his daughter. You can hear him scolding her through the closed window as he pulled out the driveway. Her mother got back in her SUV and followed them off. We watched until they disappeared around the curve of the road.


We all went inside to disinfect wherever she might have touched and feeling like WTF just happened.
After thinking about it, I wondered if we made the right decision. Hubs didn't want to call the cops because he felt this young person needed help from her parents and knew that being arrested for trespassing on top of fines and a possible DUI would not be the best solutions.

 I have no tolerance for drunk drivers or alcoholics. Period. They destroy lives and play the victim when their whole lives fall apart. They put the people who love them thru hell.  Some families and friends had enough of the bullshit and gave up on trying to help them. 

My husband handled it like a father who just wanted to make sure the girl was safe and left it in the parents hands to get the girl some help.

Me on the other hand wanted to call the police and get the ball rolling on giving this girl a wake up call.  Sometimes people need to hit rock bottom with no choice but to rise up and do something about their lives.

In my mind, this is a person who could do this again and  potentially kill someone being on the road in that state. This is someone who has no regard for herself or others. Not to mention coming into my home during a pandemic without a mask. Should I worry that this careless person could have been exposed out there and brought it into my safe place? I don’t feel any remorse for a person that has threatened my sense of safety.


How would you have handled the situation? Share your comments below.

Lanai's Diary: An SL Glitch Cramped my Style! Here is how to get your groove back



Isn’t it lovely to kick back and relax after a long hard day of work or doing absolutely nothing to logging into SL to do some more work, play or…. absolutely nothing.

If you follow my rants and ramblings through the years  I’m inspired by episodes that happen to me. I’m a dramatic person by creative writing nature and have an issue with OCD that only my nearest and dearest can navigate around. I'm well aware of my Goddess complex and guess what? I’m all good until something gets in the way. 

For the first half of July I suffered the only wardrobe malfunction,  I was besides myself  like a damsel in distress. 

No... my stuff didn't come flying out off my shirt in the middle  of a hip hop and swing mashup dance competition… It was much worse! My inventory was locked down like fort knox and I was unable to open any folders containing hours and hours of hard work putting together the perfect outfits. 

 I don’t know about yall but I like to dress up everyday. With or without a crown. I like to think I have some kind of fashion sense.  Anyway, for a week I hobbled around in the same outfit unable to change.  It felt like I had a paparazzi of flies following me around. It was dreadful. 

Half way through the second week of trying to clear cache and hoping for the best I was still left looking like yesterday and the day before. It was to the point my Ops Manager Orion was starting to complain.

I tried to create a support ticket but I couldn't even navigate that.  He had to put out the call of distress to the Lindens for help and pass along the instructions. I use Firestorm. So I went through my preferences and cleared all my cache… again.

 Next, I downloaded the latest version of the Second Life Viewer. I logged in and found a low lag place to chill and wait until inventory stopped  “fetching” my items.  Once all was fetched and showed the number of items I have in inventory. I stood around a couple minutes longer  and waited just to make sure. I logged out and went to Firestorms website and downloaded the latest version and did a restart of my system. The moment of truth finally arrived when I logged into Firestorm, waited for my inventory to load and OMG it worked!  

I have to say all sorts of things go wrong when it comes to technology. From lag to crashes, internet failures and whatever else interrupts Second Life, losing the ability to swap out a wig, shoes or go from formal to beachwear in 5 seconds really cramped my style. The worst is over now… I just need to work on my people skills. Apparently, I’m a bit of a drama queen when I can’t find my crown. 



I want to give a big thank you to my Ops Manager for his unbreakable patience and understanding during this ordeal and my friends who acted like they didn't notice I was a repeat outfit violator.

If you or someone you know is suffering from lost inventory and cramped style. Follow the instructions above.
