If Sims Were States

In the bad, old sooty days before methane or carbon monoxide detectors, miners would carry down caged canaries into the dark tunnels with them.

I Wore a Mesh Dress & I Liked It

Rez Power

I live on the balcony of a lighthouse I built, originally, in Second Life. In a world where climate is an aesthetic choice, not a natural condition that can oppress or kill you, I just don’t see a reason to live with a roof over your head. I love convertible cars in the physical world; […]
