What started as a crazy idea around a kitchen table in early February is now less than a day away from becoming real. The show opens for the first time this Saturday, April 27th, 2013 at 2pm SLT at the Basilique Playhouse. So how does one actually stage a dance number in Second Life? Well, [...]
My stupid sister Fiona opened an art gallery featuring pix of OUR FAMILY NAKED!? Is she stoopid? Anyway, as you can see in the video “Touts” this kind of lead to a slapping fight between us. Oh well. She deserved it!

Andrea66 Resident sent you a notecard. He hesitated, his heart hammering wildly while the notecard loaded. It covered half of the screen, a sarcastic metaphor sneering at his life. “My Love, I sit here where we usually sit, waiting. I sit here, wondering. An ocean parts our two worlds, an ocean filled with smiles and [...]
This is my 25th post on iRez and I wanted to do something really exciting and spectacular for it but I’ve been so bogged down with work that I just went with a boring old headshot again. Hopefully the next 25 posts will be more exciting! I did want to express my gratitude to Vaneeesa [...]
I think this was the most fun parade so far. I loved being a noob again, walking around without an AO was kind of liberating!
I bite my lip as I hand my daughter Mia over to Frank, my partner. The urge to ‘snatch’ her back is overwhelming. I watch them both like a hawk, not resting for one moment. After what seems hours, but is in fact minutes, Mia is finally handed back to me. The next few days [...]

It’s not Ms. Singh or Strawberry or even Berry… they simply refer to her as The Legend of The Lab. If you visit SecondLife.com and you’re “logged in” you’ll go straight to your dashboard. If you’re not [...]
The doctor walks into the recovery room, her smile hidden below her mask as she places the bundle of blankets into my arms and backs away. I look down at the bundle and as my eyes settle on my daughter Mia’s face, love overwhelms. I look up at my partner, Frank, and see he feels [...]

It’s been a couple of months since I wrote about the new direction I was planning for my second life, a step into Second Life’s sex culture. I was attracted to the idea of a “date auction” but hadn’t really thought about how I’d get there or where this would lead. I simply jumped into the adventure expecting I’d discover what I [...]
When they got back to the café, after burying William Andrews, the mood was somber. Carver didn’t cook. He opened a few tins of fruit, placed it on two plates and poured the syrup over it. “Sarah, we must stick together.” He shifted in the chair, the fruit on his plate untouched. “You do understand [...]
