SL12B: Breaking News!


This is Tymmerie Thorne at the scene of an crash at SL12B's We are All Children of the Same World exhibit by Sanna JupiterAuthorities tell us there are no injuries, but that jeep is going to need a front end alignment, at the very least! I hope the owner had insurance - and by "insurance", I mean I hope it was 'copy'. 

What you see behind me is the result of a tragic sim crossing glitch. Unlike many other sim crossings on the grid, no warning signs were posted. Linden Lab staffers - who asked not to be identified - say that that this particular sim crossing has been in serious need of repairs for several years. Questions remain about when Governor Linden will address crumbling SLinfrastructure.  

At this time it is unknown whether or not the driver was DWWD - driving while wearing a demo, which may have blocked his sight. This reporter wonders why the driver didn't undress completely before crossing from sim to sim. Ummm... One moment, Ladies and Gentlemen.... My producers are telling me that most people do not undress when going over sim crossings. Huh.  

Don't forget that the SL12B sims are still open for you to explore until July 4th!

Ask Away!


The lovely and talented Strawberry Singh has proposed on her blog that we share some questions and answers using Ask.fm. It's her Monday meme. I dusted off my ask.fm account just in case there is anything you would like to ask me. Thank you in advance for your questions!

                                                   ask.fm/TymmerieThorne

Strawberry's meme instructions ask us to share some of the questions we get along with our answers, so if I get any that I think I should share, I'll put them in a new post. 

Also, if you have an ask.fm account, please give me your Ask.fm links if you have them so that I can ask you things.

I have to say, I adore when Strawberry does her Monday Meme challenges because they always introduce me to new SLers and bloggers and I love the "community" feeling I get from participating.

SL12B: UFO Rally


This is Tymmerie Thorne reporting live from SL12B's UFO exhibit (by Cathiee McMillan) where we are witnessing history! Today, the field of candidates for the 2016 SL presidential election is widening as a green alien announces his bid for the Non-player Character Party's nomination. 

Running on a platform of "Probes for Everyone", the candidate is addressing a very excited crowd here! The large crowd on the sim is very much in favor of the proposed program. Known officially as the Anal Care Act, the program is often referred to as UranusCare.

Interestingly, he has no actual chance of winning election to an office that my sources tell me does not even exist.

Back to you in the studio!

SL12B: Barf Bag Challenge


This is Tymmerie Thorne reporting from SL12B where I'm about to take the Barf Bag Challenge. This reporter has not faced such a challenge since college, but I think I am up to the task. 

You, too, can try to not vomit at the Zero Gravity exhibit (by Arduenn Schwartzman). It's a ride where you can pretend that you are space walking, but your space craft is nowhere to be seen and you are lost forever so you are left to die alone in the cold vacuum of space. FUN!

This reporter wonders if perhaps this ride is a super secret test of how flying will work in Sansar. Will we be able to go higher than 4000 m? Will that require jet packs? What will happen to the already struggling flight feather industry? What if you ate spaghetti right before you logged on? 

Having zero gravity is exactly what I like best about Second Life: we can fly. As a seasoned reporter in SL I know the importance of being able to hurdle quickly through the air to the scene of exciting news or a hair sale. Flying without getting motion sickness is a critical skill for a SLaction News reporter to have. I'm proud to say that I've never vomited in SL - and that is saying something because I visited B****** B**** once! 

We here at SLaction News wonder: are the developers for Sansar is taking avatar motion sickness seriously? Or is Big Pepto behind this?

BREAKING NEWS! Gacha Trade Needed!


This is Tymmerie Thorne, taking a break from reporting on SL12B, to bring you breaking news from the Cosmopolitan shopping event.

I am standing here, in front of what witnesses (read: me) say is the most evil gacha machine in the entire world. This reporter has spent the equivalent of the gross national product of Zindra (emphasis on the word gross) on this machine but I am still missing one: Tart. I own many, many multiples of every other pose. My sources tell me that the Tart pose ISN'T EVEN A RARE!!!


Tart!
Authorities familiar with my inventory tell me that anyone with an extra Le Poppycock *Idle Fancies* Tart pose can give it to me and receive a reward consisting of a giant handful of the other poses from this gacha PLUS the RARE bikini from the Luas gacha at Shiny Shabby. (ETA: Or I will buy it from you!)

At this point, I'm pretty desperate for the pose. In the photo at the top of this post, you can see just how perfect the pose is for holding my SLaction News microphone. 

If you happen to come across an extra Le Poppycock *Idle Fancies* Tart pose, authorities ask that you IM or email this reporter immediately for a trade!

Plywood & Loneliness


I'm taking a break from my coverage of SL12B so I thought I'd share my comedy set from last week (June 16, 2015) at Lauren's Place. You can come see the show live tonight! I won't be performing, but several really talented people will. The show is at 5:00 pm SLT at Lauren's Place on Cookie.

I wore this dress just in case no one liked my jokes. They could turn off the sound and still enjoy my act. 

Thank you so much, Geo Meek, for getting these performances recorded!

SL12B: Pants Required

Pictured: Area Man (Alqualonde by AelKennyr Rhiano)
This is Tymmerie Thorne live at SLB12 sims! I'm investigating rumors that SL12B has a General maturity rating, despite the great majority of SL itself not being G rated. After exploring SL12B thoroughly, this reporter can confirm that the rumors are true. 

Sources have corroborated that no flying penises have been sighted at SL12B and none are expected. One witness, who asked not to be identified, called the situation, "a damned shame." 

However, others expressed to me that with all of the beds scattered around the celebration sims - due to its theme of "What Dreams May Come" - it was best to keep things classy. One area woman seen excitedly exploring the sims gave me her thoughts on the situation: "Don't you comb your funny looking kid's hair on picture day? Does he always look like that? No. But, it's a special occasion!" 

Interestingly, while watching comedian Lauren Weyland's hilarious, educational, and squeaky clean performance at the Cake stage yesterday, I learned that the first several SL[number]B celebrations were not G-rated. The fact that SL birthdays have not always been G rated causes this reporter to wonder what changed? Who is behind this and why? As one area man complained to me, "Why won't they let us be naked here?"
