L Upon L on SL

Austin Second Lifer Memory Harker checks in on the L-Word village.

Whooo, you know you been staring at the scan lines a li'l too intently when you get a dispatch from a Hottie McHotterpants andro babe in a parallel universe. We hand this GP blog entry over to our sweet pal, Memory Harker (click above the pic to see more pics!):

Here's a big pixelated "Howdy" to y'all from the interactive online world called Second Life, where Showtime's The L Word has been become (virtual) reality and supports a growing and diverse community of the show's fans from all over the meatspace world. Unlike the barren structures visited upon the Second Life world by most real-life corporate behemoths, the lovely L Word island incorporates a variety of local culture (Barnes' Boutique! Shiny Things!) in its mixed retail/residential plans and has greeters on hand to make you feel right at home among the denizens of this nascent matrix. Feel like chatting, dancing, shopping, or just lounging around the Planet cafe? Come on in, and see for yourself!
