Annnnndddd ACTION!!!!

One of my favorite new activities to engage in with Sass in SL (clothed know what, what we do when we press PAUSE is OUR business, damnit! :P) is watching movies. For those of you who may not know, there is a store in SL called LIGHTENING VIDEO . It is basically Blockbuster for SecondLife.

You literally TP over to the store, wander around, they have a bunch of videos on display, and you can rent or buy them. Prices range from about L$150 for a 7 day rental to L$375 for a purchase. Here is a link to their spreadsheet showing their entire stock, complete with prices, IMDB links, and SLURLS that take you right to the video so you don't have to search! LIGHTENING VIDEO STOCK

So far, we've watched Brokeback Mountain - which made us both cry. I swear, that is one of the most beautiful - and SAD - movies I've ever seen! I'd seen it about 5 times, Sass was a Brokeback virgin - had to get her schooled up! She loved it, btw.

Next one we watched - at Sass's insistence - was Magic Mike - the story of the sensitive male stripper (Channing Tatum), working under a creepy Matthew McConaughey. It was actually a good flick, and Sass's reaction to it was quite...enjoyable... :) Also inspired me to get a few new dance moves for Lar's nights...

We started to watch Dolphin Tale 2 but RL interrupted...and - a little tip - when you hit PAUSE for any length of time...DO NOT hit PLAY to restart the movie - it really DOES restart - from the beginning - and there is no FF. Hit RESUME instead. Lesson learned the hard way, LOL.

At any rate - check it out if you and your SO are looking for something enjoyable and peaceful to do. Its actually an amazingly nice feeling to be able to sit down, snuggle up, and watch a movie together. Especially if you are on voice, and can hear reactions and talk during the quiet parts. Its pretty wonderful, actually :)
