Real advice for desperate people: It’s not good advice – it’s just advice.
I asked a few of my Facebook followers to provide me with some questions & problems that they were in dire need of assistance with. I decided to share this advice with everybody so I never have to repeat anything again in the future.
Question: My wife and sister argue non-stop at every gathering we go too. We have to invite both of them or there will be even more drama. What can we do to get them to stop?
Answer: It really boils down to who do you like better? Do you like your wife or your sister? If the whole family takes a vote and decided who is more likable, the winner will be the one invited to all future family functions. The loser will be disowned. If you just want to disqualify somebody without a vote, just research to see if your sister is adopted and problem solved.
Question: My child is extremely addicted to their IPAD and I have no idea what to do.
Answer: Hide the IPAD in an undisclosed location while they are asleep. When your little angel wakes up and throws a bitch fit, spray them with a power washer. You might have to do this for several days until they get their attitude in check.
Question: I have serious road rage. I hate being cut off and I just get in a blind fury. Will drugs help me?
Answer: I’m sure drugs will help you and keep the roads safer. (But if you were that prick behind me this morning, laying on the horn, you can fuck off.)
Question: I am addicted to male porn but I am not gay. I’m ashamed to admit it but sausage parties turn me on.
Answer: You probably are gay with a serious porn addiction. I would not feel bad about it though because the world is filled with freak shows. If you just go ahead and announce on Facebook, everybody will know and be aware of it. The first few days, you will be mocked non stopped or defriended but after that, everybody will forget or not care. Good luck.
Summary: You have an avatar in which you use to socialize with other people.
I thought this was a pretty decent game especially if you are into socializing with other human beings. I did not find the avatars all that great looking and noticed if you wanted to change your look, it would cost some money. At that point, I was just like “Fuck it,” I’ll be ugly. You do start out with an apartment which was unfurnished. I did somehow get a free unicorn and a dog but I am unsure how I did that. There seemed to be a ton of places to venture off too (Bars, parks, etc) and several events that were also going on. My first journey was at a bar because I wanted to know if my avatar could get drunk. I could not figure out how to order anything and then realized that probably cost cash too. So then, I went to a dog park. I left my dog at home though. Time was well spent at the park because I met my first friend, Martin. (He was wearing a ball gag but seemed very nice) He encouraged me to find a job after I explained to him that I needed a lot of cash to get drunk. I asked him what kind of jobs were available to a person of my quality. I told him my interests were stripping and coupon clipping. He said he would help me find my dream job. That was exciting news, I had a new friend and would soon be employed and making lots of cash. After our serious employment chat, I asked Martin to be my mail order bride. I had to log after that so hopefully, he says yes soon.
I would recommend this game because it is casual and relaxing. There was no goal to the game other than finding friends. My only real issue was camera movement and walking. This is a personal issue because I’m really bad at reading directions.
A lot of people have asked me over the years how I take close up pictures and how I make the models eyes look so expressive.
Here’s are some things that I do when I take pictures. I’ll start with my graphic settings for the pictures.
Graphic Preferences: (Click on any to enlarge)
I take my pictures in Ultra graphics. If your computer cannot handle Ultra, try high or medium. They will be at least better than low.
I save my pictures roughly around 6000 pixel width to 3000 / 4000 pixel height. After I am finished editing in photoshop, I will resize the picture to around 2000 pixels in width. It’s better to save your picture as large as you can and then resize after editing. I can try to explain this one all day but trust me, you will want to do this.
I use firestorm as my viewer. I find it’s better for taking pictures then the default SL viewer.
I use photo tools a lot. The main thing I do is change the Depth of view -view angle. I don’t turn Depth of Field on. I just use the view angle on that tab.
DOF view angle combined with the free cam tool, you can use the mouse wheel to zoom in closer than you usually can.

Photography tutorial part 2: How I make the eyes look so expressive.
Emotion in the eyes:
When it comes to capturing emotions in the eyes, I do a few tricks. It’s not natural by any means.
1. I do use mesh eyes. (Catwa eyes to be exact) The hud that comes with the Catwa eyes allows you to move the eyes in different directions. This is helpful when you are posing to have the eyes stay in the position that you want them in. You do not have to use Catwa eyes but it is handy to have that Hud with the eyes.
2. Depending on what emotion I am trying to capture, I will move the mesh eyes up or down. I find if I want to capture anger, hostility or even a sensual pose; I move the iris more towards the top of the eyelid. If I am looking for a soft, sad, depressed or even a more innocent expression; I move the iris closer to the bottom. (See pictures below)
3. I edit my face shape. I have several shapes saved for pictures that I custom made myself. With one shape, the outer corner of the eyes are intentionally turned downwards. (Not a lot because I don’t want to make it super noticeable) This gives the face a natural sadden appearance. When you experience grief or are crying, the outer corners of your eyes will turn downwards. When you are overjoyed or excited, those outer corners will turn up. So based on the type of picture is the shape I use.
4. Not all mesh eyes are created equal. I think we all can tell the difference between noob eyes and high quality eyes. I tend to use eyes that I know will photograph well. There are a lot of good quality eyes that look great but for some reason just don’t photograph well. It’s just like real life when you think you look great and then somebody shows you a picture of yourself from a party and your eyes look like they belong in the black pits of hell. After a lot of trial and error, I have found several people that make wonderful photographic worthy eyes. (I have not tried all the eyes in Second Life – these are just my personal preference – use the eyes you personally like)
5. Here are a list of eye makers to try out if you are struggling: (Again, I use the Catwa Eye system with appliers from the designers below)
a. A R T E
c. Go & See
e. IKON (He doesn’t really update but his eyes are mesh and they come with a hud)
5. Eyebrow shapes are seriously important to your picture. The wrong eyebrow shape can really make your picture look like shit. Here are two pictures using different eyebrow shapes: I think you can see the difference in facial expressions.
Will write up a tutorial for wind lights soon. So look for part three soon.
