Splash Aquatics (SLurl) has updated the prize for their coin hunt so if you missed the L$250-value Piranha pack, sorry. But you are in time to try for the L$900-value river creation kit. Some of the bits are shown here. With full mod/copy perms you can shape these elements to make your land a natural wonder inSL. An example is shown on site and soon I'll have my custom river all set for you to explore on my newly acquired land adjacent to Splash (I love the place so much that when land was available, I snapped it up).

Designer Showcase Network

You may have seen one of these 45 or so kiosks in-world (like this one at the Isle of Lesbos - SLurl) and wondered "What is it?"

The "Designer Showcase Network" is a service connecting content creators of Second Life with prospective customers. Residents of SL can subscribe to the DSN free of charge via any of the various kiosks, and chose among 9 channels. The Network then delivers promotional samples from the participating designers to them - no more than one per day and channel, randomly selected.

I'm subscribed to the Gadgets, Vehicles and Weapons and the Business, Tools and Services channels. and this morning I was given a *Stinkeye Armpit Hair* and a language translation services kiosk. Who knows what I'll get tomorrow. Check out the "Featured Designer Archive" (Web) to see some of the past freebs. As a merchant myself I'm thinking about how I could best leverage this for my business, but I know that I'm recommending this to all the vendors that I know and would like to have sending some freebs to me.

Crossover FanFic - LKC (Furries), Splinter Cell, Guitar Hero

"Your challenge is to write crossover fanfiction combining Splinter Cell and Guitar Hero. The story should use furries as a plot device!"

Serenity: As long as I'm left outta fanfiction, I'm all good.

A challenge? hehehe

And so the story begins. Serenity, a.k.a. FluttahBulletKitteh or FBK for short, quietly sharpened her Guitar Hero drum sticks as she contemplated the best way to breach the terrorist enclave, kill every last mutha f***a in the room, and save the hostages.

FBK: "Hina, you're on point, Kira take up the rear," she whispered.

Kira: "Dun worry FBK, were gonna rock these mutha f*ckas ALLL nighhht Long," says Kira as she caresses her Guitar. "I've been practicing something, Special," says Kira as she quietly tunes her Guitar.

Meanwhile, Hina puts the finishing touches on the song he had carefully crafted for the Ocarina of Time

FBK: Gives the order, "Breach and clear on my mark."

Kira readies the Cupcake bomb

FBK: "Mark!"

Kira hits the button on her Guitar Hero guitar, and the door explodes with Clitter Sparkles. Hina storms the room and melodically begins playing the Ocarina, followed by FBK who uses her amazing Ninja Kitteh skills and sharpened Guitar Hero drumsticks...

Kira hears screams of amazement and wonder "La Chupacabra!!" and then runs headlong into the room.

FBK: "Lock and Load!'"

Kira looks from FBK to Hina, and then says, "Alright muthaf***ers, time to ROCK!" she then breaks out into Metallica's Enter Sandman.

Kira: "Say your prayers little one
Dont forget, my son
To include everyone"
"Tuck you in, warm within
Keep you free from sin
Till the sandman he comes"
"Sleep with one eye open
Gripping your pillow tight"
"Exit light
Enter night"
"Take my hand
Off to never never land"

The terrorists give up immediately at the sight of FBK and her squad.

FBK: "We're an elite guitar playing, terrorist killing, squad of furries and hybrids. They send us in when nobody else can get the job done."

Kira: "Well, now that we've saved the hostages, I'm off to claim a Lucky Chair."


Ohhh yeahhh.

ROck on!

Thanks to non-Kitty Daniel Voyager, fresh from the Teen Grid, for finding this timely Freeb (SLurl). And don't forget the ballerina pig from Wynx Whiplash's Extrovirtual Lucky Chair (SLurl) to ward off the flu.

Bewk Blogs XStreet

One of the places that is often over looked for freebies is XStreetSL. Serenity, logically does not post group notices for those items, and not many of the freebie blogs cover them entirely. So, I thought I'd have a go at blogging some things I found.

$0 - Amarylis Halter Top - This cute halter top is good quality. Nice pattern, good seams. Comes on two layers. If you like it, additional colors are a mere $25.

$0 - Victoria Jeans - Pair the halter with these freebie jeans, and make what I think is a pretty nice outfit. They also come in 15 other colors (not shown), and you dont even have to pay one penny for them!

$1 - Classic Black Heels - I spent about an hour searching for a pair of matching shoes for this outfit. This is the best I could come up with folks. They're black. They're heels. A staple in any wardrobe.

$1 - Pffiou! Standoffish Poses Set - I used "Deliciously Snooty" and "Part Deux" for this post. The pack contains 4 other poses, which is a steal for $1.

Ninja Cookie Posing @ The LKC HQ

$0 - Censored Cover Up - With all the drama going in world about "Adult Content", you might want to pick this up. Just slip it on if you see any Lindens around and you're sure to be covered. :P

$0 - Noir Lolita Shutter Shades - I still dont understand these. I guess they're more of a fashion thing than a functionally thing. Anyways, they're unisex and they look pretty fierce. This set also comes with a white pair of the glasses (not shown).

$0 - MiaSnow Wild Woman - Hair from the lucky chair.

$0 - Imagen - Irene/Este/Humo - Skin from the lucky chair.

So there was no way I was allowed to make a post without Damien. He's my smexy male alt. *OW!* Oh alright. And he wants me to tell you that he's available for the ladies for date night. *rolls her eyes*

On Damien

$0 - Victoria Jeans - Yep. Girl jeans. I slapped them on him, adjusted the crotch and bagginess. Et voila! Freebie jeans for the dude.

$1 - Bender T-Shirt - I'm trying guys! I'm trying! Grab this funny shirt to complete your ensemble.

More guy stuff soon I promise.

On Bewkie

$1 - Laynie Wear "Not Your Mothers Stripes" - This is an oldie and not the BEST shirt ever. But truthfully, it goes with the shoes which are fabulous. This set also comes with a pair of long stripey socks (not shown).

$0 - Victoria Jeans - Just showing how versatile these can be. I tinted these for a darker black jean color.

$1 - Lilith Lime - A nice pair of pumps with a ribbon bow on the front. This is a quality pair of shoes. While this yellowy color might not be your color of choice, they're only $1 and might be worth looking into the other colors for the full price.

$0 - Eden Earring "Yellow" - A cute pair of earrings to round off your yellow outfit. These are just a perfect size for my ears and they have a slight glow to them (if you have your graphics set to at least medium). And best of all, NO BLING!

$1 - CnS In Good Hands - Pretty cute pose.

*WHEW!* This blog entry took me nearly 4 hours to type up. (And as of yet I still haven't editted the photos to go along with it.) Hopefully, you all enjoyed it. Let me know what you think, and if you think I should write some more. Let me know by commenting, or by shouting at me me in world.

Until next time, keep your crotch tents in check!
