why don't you give yourself a rest, oh give yourself some room

There's a fellow who's reproduced his entire house--on an 18:1 scale--in Minecraft. That takes an insane level of devotion, and also...insanity.

(from the bizarre album)

Yeah, so...sometimes we get steroid warriors in SL: champions of the more-muscles-means-hotter macho school of avatar creation, and seriously, a lot of SL--in terms of skins, shapes, and tattoos--are designed for these musclebound yahoos.

This is the first time I've seen the look on a fur, though.

(from the bizarre album)

But he poses well, doesn't he? (Thanks to Sphynx for capping the shots.)

And I am shocked and appalled, I say, SHOCKED and APPALLED that no one bought Chitty Chitty Bang Bang when it was listed on eBay recently. Even at that price. What's wrong with you? GO BUY THAT THING. Good gods, the steampunk street cred alone...

And...Tim Burton now has the rights to Dark Shadows. Oh gods.

First up, before you hit the link, what you need to know about the Daily Drop: Buncha geeks pick one object a day to drop from a measured height. This is then filmed.

That's it.

The Drop I want to draw attention to: Ted the Cat. YES YOU HEARD ME.

Trust me, you want to see this, it's not animal cruelty, and it's fascinating to watch. Plus it's only two minutes long! Go onnn...cleeek the know you want to.

Really. You do. Go. Now. We'll wait.

Back? More from the pit build in Minecraft.

(from the Minecrafting album)

I stayed in the earthen hut for a couple days, until I ran out of chest room--and had rebuilt the structure four times due to creeper attack.

(from the Minecrafting album)

A shot of the original construction, showing the full glass floor for the first level, the ladder on the wall leading down, and part of the all-cobble wallwork finished (we'd decided to use all sandstone only for level one; all levels beneath were fully cobblestone-lined.

(from the Minecrafting album)

Looking up at the glasswork of the two previous levels, starting on level three.

(from the Minecrafting album)

And Hank in the corner of the build, contemplating a better way up and down. A solid ladder all the way down one wall seemed cumbersome, somehow. So he worked out a better way.

(from the Minecrafting album)

While he did that, I was stuck with a Press 'I' for Inventory popup on the screen. It took me a few hours to figure out that, with the new update, I could only clear this message by going into singleplayer Minecraft.

The overmuscled furry av actually works if it had a head to scale. Which is of course the problem of the non-furries as well.
Wait...I see a market niche :)
Giant overmuscled prim avatar heads. It could be the next prim boobs!

It could!

And you know guys would buy them. Or hells, make a gift board option, for girls (or guys) to buy for their significant others!
