Samurai Princess

Samurai Princess takes place sometime, somewhere, in an alternate universe version of feudal Japan where people live together with highly developed mechanical dolls. However, excessively developed mechanical dolls start causing harm to the human society, leading to ghastly blood shed happening all over the place. Under the circumstances, Kyoraku, a mad scientist, creates a female ninja mechanical doll. Equipped with 11 types of built-in weapons, the ninja doll is infused with the souls of eleven of her fallen sisters and she uses their combined power to take down anyone who stands in the way. The ninja doll will not die even if she is slashed by a sword or shot by a gun; she is virtually indestructible on her quest to save humanity. (desc taken from youtube)

This may be the worst movie I’ve shown to date!  Asian gore exploitation & a porn star lead actress?  But how can I not??  Recommended for fans of the Troma films, so you know to expect lots of cheesy, low budget gore & violence, & some “mild sexuality”.  **Does contain a rape scene, so this could be a trigger for some people.**

My Market Place

3 Nov

My sales are up a good deal since the new Market Place opened.  Still not a big seller, but I’ve got some new things in the works & have been considering renting some small shop space inworld.  I have the yard sale table at the trailer park, but I thought it would be nice to have something else with a bit more traffic & some dedicated shoppers visiting.  The yard sale at the trailer park is more for a bit of theme fun than anything.  I’ve seen a few places, but nowhere I think my stuff would fit.  I’m still looking.  BTW, the yard sale is for all the tenants, but currently it is just my stuff (not counting a friend’s market boxes I let her park there when she closed her store).

So anyhoo, with the proposed pricing changes to the market place that seem to be on their way in a month or two, I don’t know that I’ll be able to keep all of my stuff on there, monthly listing fees & all.  I’ll probably end up raising my prices on the MP & cutting stuff that doesn’t sale.  Right now what I’m going to do is make a buy 2 get 1 free special.  So, if you buy two items at full price from my store, either the market place or from the trailer park yard sale, send me a note card with your name & dated transaction info, & the item, or equal or lesser value than the items you bought of course, you would like for free.  I’ll will send it to you, probably the same day since I am on pretty much every day at some point.

Here are the links for my MP store & the yard sale & keep checking back to see what changes.  I’ve got a house about ready to go & am working on some more feature rich versions of it.  I have made a few clothes, more than what is for sale atm, & have just gotten some new templates & textures to work on more.  Plus, I’ve started working with scultpies & more animations & scripts.  A lot of this hasn’t made it for sale yet, but it’s getting close.

And Now Halloween Is Gone…

2 Nov

The mini hunt has ended & I cleaned up everything including the Halloween decorations.  I won’t mention how many hundreds of prims I freed up doing that…  With that also went the fishing pumpkin at the taco stand, but the 7Seas is still up at Perfect Taco Lake on Taco Hill.  I’ve also retired the Hella Skela-fish custom.  Till next year I suppose:~)

Now that it’s all gone the taco stand looks so lonely:~(

Events Schedule Nov 1-7

1 Nov

Today is the last day of our mini hunt.  I want to thank everyone who came out to be a part of our first trick-or-treat:~)  I hope you had fun & a found something you enjoy.

It’s NaNoWriMo time & just a month until World AIDS Day & our 16 Days program, so this will be a busy, busy day for me.  I’ve opened the taco up for NaNoers looking for a quite place, & held a kick-off write-in last night.  I’m considering scheduling some regular write-ins, but haven’t decided yet if I really have the time for it (I am also leading real world write-ins).  I’ll also be getting my planning in gear for our 16 Days program on Dec 1.  If anyone would like to participate in the event or it’s planning, drop me a line either here or inworld.

Well, on to this week’s schedule…

Tues, Nov 2 @ 8PM: Video Night!
This week we’ll be enjoying an assortment of videos from Flight of the Conchords.  Prepare to be amused!
