New avatar: Zechckenyaii the Muscleman

I started building a bodybuilder long ago, but i made a fresh start yesterday. Zechckenyaii developed these muscles lifting books of Kant and Hegel (which he still does when he types), and he looks very good using the standard /muscle gesture. He has a tattoo of course.

I used Eloh Eliot's texture as a base for the face. That skin is available as a full perms freebie, which apparently is a big thing in the world of fashionistas. Pretty common for us hobos though:)

Available at my shops for L$ 250


DX4 grand turismo car

Made a european muscle car yesterday. It has that quality design that was around in the early eighties, when everything was big and square and ugly. This one has a mix of east german and french car design, and it has been left out in the yard for quite a while. But don't worry, I cleaned the windows a little so you can see where you're going.
Available at my shops, for L$ 50.

That's the new swim suit I made btw.

dancing cops

As you can see on their blog, Hansode Miasma and his girlfriend Mina Jun (who makes awesome skins and clothes) have a lot of fun with my police pig avatar. Now they've done a nice video too:

Hansode said they would change the music, but I really like it as it is :)

Yes! Oh my! Yeah!

A letter

Dear Mr. Tooter,

Please be nicer to your brother. Don't make him eat aluminum foil or sleep out in the rain. And please do not beat him. It all seems to be affecting his memory very badly.

I did buy Brunnhide, as was so kindly suggested by him, all those wonderful features will surely come in handy. But he continued to beg after the purchase, forgetting that I did indeed buy just mins. before. Your continued ill treatment seems to be destroying his brain. It must be the tazers.

Thank you,
Firery Broom (sic)

Dear Firery Broome,

thank you for your concern about my brother. Don't worry. He is in good hands. You probably don't know that my brother will some day be the sole heir of the Claxton fortune. However, my brother also suffers from anxieties and together with our medical staff I am working hard to cure him so that he may enjoy his future wealth in good health.

My brother is an agliophobe, which we try to cure with a 'hands on' approach, which indeed does include tazering him from time to time.
But the main focus of our therapy is to cure him of his chrometophobia, which we do by making him sell avatars, over and over again. I hope you understand that leaving a fortune in the hands of a chrometophobe is dangerous and I assure you that everything we do to him is done with the best intentions.

We hope you will continue to support our therapy by buying an avatar from him every now and then. Kicking him in the keister while you do this also helps a lot.

thank you,

Tooter Claxton


I'm in the movies! Mask

I'm a bit late to blog about it (as usual) but my picture is in this awesome morph movie of Robbie Dingo:

Be sure to click on the YooToob logo and watch Robbie's other video's! Watch the worlds is a masterpiece where he rebuilds van Gogh's painting in Second Life. (Too bad that cheesy Don McLean song keeps playing... hurray for volume control!)

new vehicle: John Beere tractor

Damn, it's been a while since i made a vehicle. There's that crappy scooter and motorcycle and the very, very crappy airplane at my shops, but I sort of gave up on vehicles a long time ago. I can make them look kinda good, but I can't script, so they fly and ride like the driver is having a fit. Ah, but not this tractor; I borrowed Arcadia Asylum's script from her yellow cab that you see all over second life, and now it's a nice, smooth, slow ride.
Modelled -sort of- after a 1960's John Deere tractor. I saw on Flickr that fellow hobo and dutchman Rask has already raced it on the Mercedes test track.

Available for L$ 150 at one of my shops.

New avatar: spider

I made this spider a while back with tiny prims, life sized. But now I have scaled it, added a bodycrusher and attached the legs to the limbs and now you can wear it as an avatar too.
The legs were a bitch to align. And it looks ridiculous when you sit down or fly. But hey...

You can buy one for L$ 150 at one of my shops.

boxed freebies

I put my freebies into new black boxes. Even the crappiest stuff gets a bit of class that way :).
Get them at my Salon in Oculea, Zimmy's Freebie Underground (F.U.) or the SLLU freebie shop.


Hobo squat

Zimmy had built a (sorry Zimmy) rather boring and huge structure on a little piece of land he owns, right next to the Calleta Hobo Railroad infohub. This infohub is a wonderful and attractive place built by SL's best dressed man Orhalla Zander which has grown into a meeting place for builders, artists, hippies, banana phone fetishists, rastafarians, newbies, punks, cowboys a.s.o. This Hobo group has a couple of things in common; they goof around and build a lot, help eachother and don't care too much for money.
I offered Zimmy to make a new structure that would fit the scenery a little better and built this favela / ruin. It has three floors, and a lot of little niches, boxes and huts for the hobo's to crawl into.

The outer textures are made from pictures I took of demolition sites in my hometown, the inside walls are from photos of a bombed building in Lebanon.
And again, this one is also free to copy; just click on it. Just be sure to have the edit window open when you rez it, as it consists of three unlinked floors. It was too big to link.
