180: Facebook shutdown

I arrived home last night to learn that my Facebook account had been shut down ... because I'm not a real person, apparently.  I cannot reactivate it, so that's it; game over.  Right now if anyone is looking for my photographs, this is where they will be, and I'll be thinking about what else to do.  It's unlikely to involve Facebook, though.
I'd love to put a photograph of how I feel about Facebook at this point but I think a photo of a large steaming pile would violate Blogger's TOS, and I haven't got many outlets left ;-) If anyone has comments or suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

179: Friday night Groove Therapy with DJ Lledge

I did say I wasn't going to do party reports, didn't I? Well, I had a good time last night listening to some deep house music courtesy of DJ Lledge and host Novs Morlim. I'll make up for breaking my promise by not adding anyone's name... I forgot to write anything down, since I had my headphones on and was chair-dancing to the music.
  My weekend doesn't really start until I hear Lledge's playlist on Friday; if you like
house, this is a great place to hear it. Friendly host, friendly naked guys too. What's not to like?

178: A walk around 3Bears

 I was trying to think of an interesting place to take some photographs -- to show off my neat new winter jacket -- when I realized I live on the very scenic sim 3Bears.
  Not only is it my own back yard, I noticed that the 3Bears guys have got some nicely designed little houses and installed them in attractive, friendly neighbourhoods. There's a lot to be said for starting your SL in a place like this,
with just over a hundred prims. You have a place to change clothes, rez your purchases, decorate a little, and install a piece of sex furniture with 700 combinations in the menus ;-)  That's all you need when you're starting out.
  The little brownstones here are a very nice space, 117 prims for L$350 a week. I rather liked the boathouses here, 146 prims for L$440 a week, because there's a boat dock at ground level and one big room above. It's actually more effective to have a single room than two floors, if
you have a strict prim allowance; you can focus your decoration more effectively. Less, as they say, can be more.
  I'm not sure about the effects of the recent prim upgrades; we tenants haven't seen any effect of it yet, but I've sort of been expecting it.  Mind you, I'm not sure of the conditions defined by Linden Labs. The 3Bears folks know better than anyone at this point.
  The gentlemen at 3Bears are easy to get along with, responsive to your needs,
and have a nice taste in public decor. Talk to Galileo Bear-Michalski (galileo.michalski) and tell him I sent you. He will be surprised, because I decided to give you this little tour on my own; 3Bears doesn't pay me, I just think you might enjoy these little houses. If nothing else, you can wander around and take some pictures, but Gali will help if you have questions.  Enjoy!

177: Woodbury Falls

Tonight I went and took some pictures at Woodbury Falls; I got the idea from a listing in the Destination Guide. Very cool build and I had some spooky fun!
You can find the link here.

176B: "Travel" (2 of 2)

And in this, the second of two little photo shoots I had some fun with, I was riffing on the theme of "Travel".  There are some amazing sims out there; they make it easy.

176A: "Patterns" (1 of 2)

Tonight I went out and did two photo shoots that I thought came out rather well. I thought I'd share a few shots with you.  I just did what came to mind ... in the first instance, the shoot below about "Patterns", I just tried to pack as many patterns into the shot as possible.  The second shoot will be next, "Travel".
