SL/WoW documentary “Login2Life”


Draxtor Despres today uploaded a documentary video called LOGIN2LIFE on his official YouTube channel which runs for 1 hour and 26 minutes. Second Life and World of Warcraft is featured in this documentary. Woooot! :)

Elaborate digital platforms like Second Life and World of Warcraft offer novel opportunities for friendship, sex, employment, and aesthetic experience in virtual communities populated by cartoon-like avatars.

Centered around people who have found communities online, Login 2 Life profiles people deeply immersed in virtual worlds, including individuals who are homebound because of their disabilities, and attempts to understand what these individuals get from their virtual lives.

Apparently this SL/WoW documentary “Login2Life” will be shown at the Reel Abilities Film Fest in NYC at 10pm on Tuesday 17th March 2015. There will be a discussion panel in Second Life with a RL audience which sounds most interesting indeed.

The Drax Files: World Makers [Episode 26: Absinthe] now available


Draxtor Despres has just uploaded Episode 26 called Absinthe and it’s now available to watch on YouTube. This episode is all about the fashion industry & identity in under 5 minutes.

“Second Life is so multifaceted that you can’t really make a judgement as to whether somebody’s activity is more serious than somebody else’s!” says Absinthe, a virtual super model: “I get up in arms when people put down Second Life as escapism!”

Yes Absinthe, who works with HIV/AIDS children in her day job, fully embraces her SLelebrity status despite the raised eyebrows of friends and colleagues when she mentions what she terms “my hobby”.

Check this out and spread the word! :)

Indeed there is no shortage of articles which dismiss in particular the fashion industry in this largest user-created virtual world as lonely adults playing Barbie & Ken after-hours.

But there is so much more underneath this playful engagement with avatar dolls: exploration of identity, ethnicity, class and embracing the creative impulse in all of us, those are just a few themes that run alongside Absinthe’s story.

Not to mention that her FEROSH project has brought her recognition beyond the virtual realm as this fashion compendium is available in physical print, rivaling RL publications in its beautiful presentation and style.

But let us for now simply embrace the wonderful distraction of some talented women in gorgeous dresses, accessories and hair.

I think this episode is fantastic and I have to say Absinthe is amazing from watching. Thanks Drax for another great episode and I’ll look forward to the next one. Glad that Second Life was mentioned once again. Yay! :D

Merry Christmas!

Fun christmas otter fish slapping fight at Abranimations


Watch this new video uploaded by Saffia Widdershins showing a fun christmas otter fish slapping fight in progress at Abranimations in Second Life. Apparently the owner called Abramelin Wolfe is giving out nice gifts this week. Woooot!

Abranimations is one of the Second Life stores with an Advent calendar this year – and owner Abramelin Wolfe is giving away some great gifts – including these cute otter avatars, complete with animations and wet fish to fight with! So when I went over today to collect my gift and found a grand otter fish slapping fight in progress – well, I couldn’t resist filming it!
