A Digression… and flamingos

| March 9, 2010

[click image for larger view] Where have I been? First, I will lay the blame of this post entirely on my current course of medication. This, along with other events, will partially explain my absence from my blog and life in general. As I am not one to whinge about personal matters, suffice it to […]

An Apology & Clothing Permission Commentary

| November 15, 2009

[click image for larger view] First, I would like to make a public apology to Calamity’s creator, Ariel Zuhal, for inferring severe malcontent with one of her creations in one of my recent blog posts. My intent is never to malign – if it were, I would write day and night about creators and creations […]

No Mod Items — A Lament & Sigh

| May 5, 2009

First of all — apologies for my extended absence. Although I returned from holidays (delicate fish was consumed in mass quantities, and creative Tokyo cocktails heavily imbibed) nearly one month ago, I have had to take stock of my life (both RL and SL) and tend to some backburner projects that have now caught on […]

Brief Update

I would like to take better photos, and perhaps playing with these settings will assist me in […]

One Year Later…

| January 30, 2009

Despite the best of intentions, I was distracted by RL and SL to the extent that I was unable to properly launch this blog.  Perhaps round 2 will yield some results. In the past year I’ve been distracted by building (which I’m discovering is addicting) and various and sundry personal endeavours.  I have moved out […]

Welcome Message

| February 10, 2008

Welcome to my humble blog. Please don’t mind the construction as I create some relevant content. Some time last year I had aspirations of creating an in-world regular magazine of reviews and relevant information for the Gentleman shopper (and Ladies who assist their gentlemen). Unfortunately, the amount of work involved in creating an ongoing publication […]
