My Perception of SecondLife

My perception of Secondlife

This week’s Monday Meme from Strawberry Singh is thought up by my Machinima idol Draxtor Despres. I shot my 1 minute at my SIM Binemist under the surface in the SE corner where I have made a little art corner with some of the art that I have collected over the years in Secondlife. The music in the video is Alucination : Beautiful Homes that I picked up from the stream on Binemist. The stream there is a smooth mellow stream from Switzerland called Truehouse. Check it out on truehouse.ch. I have been listening to that stream for years, and I never get tired of it.

So to the Monday Meme

Meme instructions: Make a one minute video at your favourite Second Life location and/or answer the following questions and share what your perception is of Second Life. If you do a video, upload it to youtube or flickr. If you upload it to flickr, please add it to the Blog Memes Flickr Group and don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments.

  1. What is your perception of Second Life? – Secondlife is an amazing place and not a game for me. It’s my creative outlet. At the moment my creative outlet is decorating and designing SIMs. It used to be playing music and being a DJ. I also love the arts in Secondlife. I truly admire the artists and creators of content and when I can I like to support their work by buying it and using it in my own designs.
  2. Do you feel the portrayal or reputation Second Life seems to have in the mainstream media is justified? – I don’t see much of Secondlife in the media. It’s very rarely in the news in my part of the world. I listen to different podcasts about Secondlife, and there I hear what others feel about the portrayal and reputation of Secondlife, but I don’t see it myself, so I can’t say that I have an opinion on that.
  3. Do you talk about your Second Life with your real life friends and family? – Yes I do. I tried to get my husband involved with Secondlife, but he never really got into it. The avatar he made then, I now use as an alt. My husband does however like to come and watch my screen when I fiddle around in Secondlife, and he loves my machinimas. I also talk to my friends about Secondlife, but they don’t really get it. What I hear most is that they don’t have time for it, and I guess that is a valid point as it does take a lot of my time too. But then I don’t watch television.
  4. What is your most favourite thing to do in Second Life? – I love the art in Secondlife. I love to explore art sims like the resent Ruins by Cica Ghost or Spankys by Romy Nayar. I love to take snapshots in-world and I find it very satisfying to go shopping for beautiful stuff I can use in my designs.
