By Laika Saintlouis Slipsters 1Slipsters 2

A couple of rare, rare shots of one of the all time greats wearing some pretend internet clothes. I’m back in SL and I’m really loving that mesh has enabled so many of my favourite designers to experiment with lumpy crotch situations to name but one advancement. This is an important time to be in SL and I feel truly blessed to be back to experience it.

‘Confidence Man’ by Laika

Words and Pictures by Laika Saintlouis

This is the first in a Western (TV shows that star Timothy Olyphant) themed week from us, expect way more sneering and maybe some spitting in the next post as we go back in time a bit for that one. I’m really into Justified lately and this is a great look, it’s western office casual I guess. I can’t dress like this in real life because I’m British which is the polar opposite of a cowboy. I mean, I have some cowboy boots and all but I’d never dare go as far as the hat. It would be fine if I stayed silent but as soon as I spoke it would be crazy town, like that homeless guy who’s voice was the voice of a charismatic radio guy. Confusing! Does anyone else feel sorry for the radio personality who surely exists somewhere in the world who opens his mouth and out comes a low rumble and splutter which somehow conveys all the hunger, torpor and remorse of the world? I bet no-one listens to that show! There probably isn’t a that guy. So anyway that was a reference to an internet thing from several months ago, I guess I just haven’t had a forum for all this super important stuff for awhile. Next week I’ll be covering the bed intruder thing.

Here I’m showcasing some new boots and a new blazer that I really like from Myvegancookbook Bolissima who is the designer for Adjunct. He also has a really great vegan cookery blog, which is pretty apt considering his name, if you name your child that he is obviously going to start a vegan cookery blog.

‘Slipsters do Lula’ by Laika

Words and Pictures by Laika Saintlouis

It’s fashion time again, folks! James and I jumped in our Land Rover or our tractor or whatever it is that people that dress like we are dressed in this post drive and we headed to the newly opened Lula sim, which you should absolutely visit because it’s beautiful, it reminds me of the English countryside that I never went out in while I lived in England because I was too busy playing Second Life. I think it’s supposed to be France though because it’s so fancy! Not like glamazon, driveable prim lamborghini, Vince Zoozoo fancy, more like going to the seaside on a bankholiday and having tea and crumpets at that nice cafe because sometimes it’s nice to pretend you don’t have every flavour of ramen noodles in your cupboard kind of fancy. Speaking of French and fancy, check out Mon Tissu while you’re here, not just because it’s exciting and new and bloggers are telling you to but because it’s really very good. We really enjoyed shopping there, except we didn’t because we’re slebrity bloggers that get everything for free probably lol. Also we didn’t arrive in a tractor we were carried by slaves. No, I’m not for serious, we’re not internet egomaniacs, like your Vinny Xiuxius for instance, just down to earth, keeping it real, taking it easy, regular type guys that you might meet in a normal person bar where they don’t have the more expensive drugs and some of the furniture isn’t transparent. So anyway, Lula is nice! More pics to follow!

(2 out of 3) Slipsters on Tonight Live with Paisley Beebe – This Sunday 6PM SLT

Yeah, so, James and I will be waxing lyrical about the fantabulous world of SL blogging and discoursing til we can discourse no longer about all things hipster (whatever that is). So turn on, tune in, drop out, and all of that. Or don’t, I’m not going to tell you what to do with your life, it’s totally yours and yours alone and you need to take ownership of it, if not now then when? If you wanted to direct your free young lives in the direction of Tonight Live with Paisley Beebe this Sunday at 6PM SLT though then that would be totally rad and who could blame you?


‘Vintage Slipsters’ by Laika

Words and pictures by Laika Saintlouis

Vintage is to be defined in this case as anything more than two years old, because Second Life is only what, seven years old? And it’s only been densely populated by pervs for about five of those years. So that’s our definition of vintage SL and were sticking to it. Not to be confused with ‘retro’ SL fashion, which is contrived contemporary SL clothing purposely made really badly, with copy pasted photo textures and unadjustable gigantic ugly optimus prime-esque prims (hahahah, that doesn’t really and never will exist).

You probably can’t buy much of this stuff anymore, so in the strictest sense this blog entry completely fails in it’s role as an interesting and informative Second Life fashion blog thing  but that being said, it’s still rather succesful in it’s primary role as a thing for us guys to do for personal enjoyment and afterall, that’s what really matters.

‘An Artist’ by Laika

Words and Pictures by Laika Saintlouis

Hi, everyone’s most favourite slipster here, the one whose name everyone knows. Hahaha. I write ironically. So anyway, the other slipster here, the one whose name escapes you. I have a post here, pay attention. So in this one I suppose I’m an artist, I’m not very committed to the role hence why I’m writing ironically, I can never really commit fully to anything, I’m afraid of being hurt if I put myself out there. But this character here is one of those art guys because I found some long, foppish hairs that I liked.

I’m putting paint on canvas alot these days and it turns out that the girls, they love this shit! I am having sex sometimes twice weekly. I’ve gone out in the rain to get some art materials because my bag of drugs is almost empty and most drugs don’t grow on trees. One day I’ll make it, all of my girlfriends tell me so and it’s not like wanting to make it as a rockstar or as a President of the United States of America, it’s more about knowing you’re good and have something really self involved to say and then working really hard and you’ll so totally make it. So of late I’m arting very fast. “Two arts please!” that’s what they’ll all say. Honestly I was more committed to this narrative before I realised my paintbrushes and shit had been deleted by my last sim landlord because I didn’t pay him or whatever, here’s an easel though, so, artist.

‘A Stab in the Dark’ by Laika

Words and Pictures by Laika Saintlouis

So they’re in this big, old mansion right and it is pretty spooky! There’s one of those paintings that is painted so well that the eyes are so good that they follow you wherever you go. That is some very advanced artistic technique right there, this guy probably can’t even do that. So the paintings are all weird and that’s scary and what else? It’s not a very comforting  environment really, Martha Stewart would hate it there. The grandfather clock ticks REALLY LOUDLY, how annoying, and there is a staircase that leads to nowwhere, oh it leads to that room actually, well it has an odd amount of steps I’m sure and that really aggrivates my OCD. The point is if I were you and you were a character in this blog entry I would be quite nervous that at any moment someone might do a murder on you!

James Schwarz, oil tycoon, is the type of person should be especially worried, two of his public school chums (American translation: private school friends. I don’t know why either) have come to visit him and there is quite a bit of tension there. Till hasn’t seen him since 2001 when it was rumoured that James may well have boinked his mother. Laika lost his brother in the Iraq War and we all know what the deal is there. I don’t know, there’s more going on I’m sure, they both look quite angry, YOU do the back-story. The point is: M U R D E R.

So how many hipsters does it take to change a lightbulb?

Well it used to be three but everyone is changing lightbulbs in groups of three now, so now it’s all about four, you wouldn’t have heard of four, four is pretty underground.

I decided to take a day trip to Montreal with my three most unconventional pals, clustered together in the Plateau, Montreal’s most unconventional quarter I discuss my new musical act, I’m calling it Philosofolk, it’s like blue grass meets nihilism, I sing about Nietzsche but I put my own spin on it, you’d like it, you should check us out. The idea is that after listening to one song you’ll feel that existence is meaningless and futile.

We loiter about for a while hoping that if we stand abount looking avante-garde long enough someone might give us modelling contracts or something, because although we reject capitalist society’s perpetuation of the pursuit of wealth as being inherently natural, Tofu doesn’t grow on trees (as far as I know).

‘Look at this f*cking hipster’ by Laika

Words and pictures by Laika Saintlouis
Okay so this is obviously the first direct parody of a look at this fucking hipster entry because oh yeah that’s what this blog originally was, a parody of latfh, or something.  This shirt is actually for sale (lolwhut?) at Cheap Makeup as of tomorrow for Fifty Linden Friday and it comes with a plain white version minus my countenance, which is something you might actually want to wear. It looks better on girls as you can see, but that’s fine because I don’t have a particularly huge gay following anyway, except for that one guy Fernando, who is pretty huge I suppose (hilarious).

‘Lost And Found’ by Laika

Words and pictures by Laika Saintlouis

This post is a sort of homage to one of my favourite tv shows, which is ending this weekend.

Okay so, here’s the hastily constructed narrative; our three slipsters are waiting to board their plane back to LA,  little do they know that the plane doesn’t even have a phalange!

The players are; James Schwarz, international tennis star and heroin addict who is praying that customs don’t examine his racket too closely, Rev. Laika Saintlouis, professor of philosophy and theology and Dr. Till Hapmouche, theoretical physicist, philanderer.

They have one thing in common, they are all lost, they are all looking for something. The question is not ‘what’ are they looking for but ‘when’ are they looking for. Or something? The point is that, I forget. God I’m sure there was a point when I started writing this but it’s lost on me now. Explosions! Mystery! Attractive people!
