Ooh. =:D Ghostbusters: the Video Game.

Fancy moving to Canada? Calculate your score.

Via timberwoof, perhaps the most savvy electoral candidate the US will see this cycle: Sean Tevis, "an Information Architect in Kansas running for State Representative. I've decided to 'retire' my current State Representative. I'm going to win. This is my story (XKCD homage style) so far."

You may recall there was a proposal to name a San Francisco sewage plant after Mr Bush. It's just been announced the motion is on the ballot for November. ^_^

Somewhere to visit in Second Sweden: Disorientation Station, as Garth Goode puts it. =:) Set high above the sim is a giant six-faceted die, which invites you to come inside. It's then that you find out it reorients itself every sixty seconds, leaving you still affixed to the same surface you arrived on, with a fully furnished interior for each face.

What looks like a very handy tool, especially for LSL newcomers: Scratch for Second Life, permitting the composition of scripts by assembling basic building blocks.

According to Bettina Tizzy, Rezzable's art showpiece sim Black Swan, acting as a test for whether people will pay a one-off fee for admission (L$199), is currently free until August 4th. ^_^

Quite a perceptive comparison of recent sim openings, highlighting several important ways in which different approaches were taken to attempt to ensure a successful debut, and sustained popularity.

The 1913 MA marriage law I mentioned the other day? It's going down: "The Massachusetts Senate voted Tuesday to repeal the law. The House is expected to vote this week." (Well, maybe a bit later..)

Porn for the day: Two for One, recommended to anyone who might enjoy a nice, straightforward latex TF. ^_^

Little bit of LJ news: Basic accounts are coming back. They're still wondering what sort of advertising will get thrown in, though.

Doctor Who may be over for a while, but there is another season of the Sarah Jane Adventures to look forward to later this year. ^_^

 
 
 
 
 
 

I'm strongly of the belief that if you're willing to support yourself, you should be entirely free to live anywhere you choose. Companies can - why not people?

I couldn't agree more, and I may have to quote you on that. :)

Oh, feel free. ^_^ I don't mean to be contentious about it - I simply feel it's such a wonderful world, with so much to be seen and understood.. there's no better way to accomplish both than to live there, and be a part of it all, howsoever minute. I quite appreciate existing residents may feel disinclined to support a voluntary newcomer, but beyond that, it seems like a healthy outlook for a community or country to be happy to accept anyone who'd like to make a go of it. After all, remove that notion of "stealing jobs", and what grounds do the detractors have?

(Not that such people tend to understand just how wretchedly difficult it can be for university graduates to move freely around the world, in skilled employment, let alone newcomers from less privileged, but no less dedicated, backgrounds. Make immigration feasible, and the need to be present somewhere illegally is removed. When laws are held in broad disdain, there's a fundamental problem with the laws, not with the people.
