Flight Attendants

Flight Attendants by mudslinger-ning on deviantART

Gave my two main secondlife avvies (Claire & Muddy) some new outfits.
There wasn’t many locations about to get a good screenshot with the airlines on display so I bought my own. Turned out better than I thought.

And NO! – I know what you guys are thinking – but these babes aren’t joining the mile high club! …. yet…

Meme: NOOB Hope poster

Strawberry Singh’s Monday Meme challenge time. This time the instructions were:

Take a RL meme and bring it into SL. Or, if you prefer, create a new meme of yourself

Aside from posting a previously made meme: http://fav.me/d5rblog

I also made the following picture (and may make one or two more during the week):

How high is the virtual sky?


Ok so I’m starting to look for a way to do these comics regularly – to help with this I’ve joined Tumblr to run an “Ask Muddy” type of blog to encourage activity.

for for my first response I give your the following comic. It didn’t appear as good as I hoped on the tumblr site but I think with some adjustments future posts will turn out better. (I might go back to it to fix the pics up later)

Oh and “Vera” gets to make an appearance in my comic – so now it’s not all just one character now. More characters may appear in later episodes.


My comic is also posted on:

Second Life Movie Poster Meme

This post is a response to Strawberry Singh’s regular Monday Meme challenge. This week’s challenge was to make a movie poster theme for your avatar. I must say I sure have a number of ideas brewed up to meet this challenge – but only a limited amount of time to do it all. I may later make more posters but here is my first quickly rushed attempt.

Full size available at DeviantArt

It took me a while to make it but it seems to have turned out ok for a rushed attempt at roughly copycatting a movie poster. And it was also convenient that two of my VERA robot avatars already had their TRON outfits pre-arranged so setting up the main screenshot was greatly sped up.

Second-Life Names Meme

I figured I’d make this post to join the bandwagon for a meme I saw via Google+. started by Strawberry Singh.

Basically it’s a simple little questionnaire about one’s Second-Life identity.

So here goes my version:

  1. What’s your SL name? Mudslinger Ning
  2. What made you choose this name? “Mudslinger was a carryover from a character I had when once playing the online game “Anarchy Online” where my character was a martial artist who didn’t need to weigh his hands down with weapons. The “Ning” surname I picked kinda fitted best at the time because it felt like there was some connection with the “Knights of Ni!” (Monty Python and the Holy Grail)
  3. What’s your SL nickname, or what do most people call you? (if applicable) I am often called “Mud” or “Muddy”
  4. What’s your SL display name? Why do you choose to have one? (if applicable) Muddy – because it now feels simpler and opens more opportunity for new people I meet to not need to say the whole name in conversation.
  5. Do you like your SL name? Yes
  6. If you could change your SL name, what would it be? Right now I don’t want to change it.
  7. What’s the craziest/funniest SL name you’ve ever seen? I have seen so many but one that sticks in my mind is “Whowants Mayo” (which was actually created by a local RL friend) – otherwise just look in the people directory for anyone with the “Sideways” surname and you’ll be giggling for a while…
  8. What’s the coolest (your favourite) SL name you’ve ever seen? Do I really have to pick a favourite? I can’t seem to pick out a specific one…

And in some recent shenanigans I made this avatar pictured below just for the sake of messing with the name – I don’t really like the guy (apart from a couple of songs) but for some reason I had the urge to create it.


VERA talks again!

For a while now I’ve been running these robot-controlled avatars going by the name of “VERA”. They had been opearting fine as entertaining chat bots in a couple of my regular places up until recently the pandorabots server that was hosting her chat brain kinda tripped on it’s own power cable.

This left VERA with no chat function for a while. So I parked her over in a corner with with some of the other garbage. While she was there it appeared a fellow friend tried to clean her up by putting her under a shower.Snapshot_018_small

When the services eventually came back it turned out the whole VERA chat account had been lost and had to be recreated. So in short she’s been “reset” back to basics. Although this time I’ve started to tweak some nuggets of her knowledge a little so some of the regulars who pester her might get some different results this time.

Let’s see how she develops this time…

Copycat Claire

I found a cool pic the other day:


I liked it so much that I felt an urge to simulate the appearance a bit using readily available resources in Second Life on one of my main avatar characters.
It’s not a perfect match but meh – it’s close enough to make me happy…

Flux Pony v2

Flux Pony v2 by *mudslinger-ning on deviantART

After the initial creation of my Secondlife Flux Pony.
Someone else got inspired enough to make a working version of the backpack. [link]
So as expected – since my original concept was not a functional one – I upgraded my flux pony!
Oh and it got new goggles for a sleeker effect.

You may see a bit of my pony avvie in action towards the end of this video: http://youtu.be/HZPuB7y8f-I

Second Life Parody song – raw vocal samples


Parts of a parody song based on the theme from “Team America – World Police” but with a Second-Life twist.

It is part of a machinima project I have started on. The audio track isn’t the completed song – this is audio samples being made for a friend (and anyone else who wants to get involved) to play with to see what musical mixes they can make with it.

If you create an awesome version of the parody tune using these samples and other “free” royalty-free or self-made resources. Share it back to me as a royalty-free copy and it might get included in my machinima where I may create the visuals to the music along with putting your name in the credits of the entire production of the project. I am hoping to get a couple of versions for use with the machinima – however if I get a range or really cool remixes I might help promote all contributors by putting out a compilation download for any potential fans out there.

In a way I’m testing the waters here on a possible strategy to try and achieve any kind of completion of my Machinima project – I admit my singing is crap and that I don’t have much of a music mixing talent – I will be focusing mostly on the planning & visual aspects. This is a project where I am likely to gain a number of collaborators for various aspects of the production. Anyone who helps out will get some credit for recognition

For the latest information I’ll be blogging about each bit of progress of my project via my blog colinnashonline.com
