Der nächste große Name, der aus SL verschwindet …

„Reel Expressions“, formerly known als „Luth“ will close it’s doors.

Unbelievable. One of the first pose shops I visited four years ago.

Understandable the reasons.


Der nächste große Name, der aus SL verschwinden wird. „Reel Expressions“ – den „Alten“ unter uns besser bekannt als „Luth“ schließt seine Türen.

Alle Preise wurden um 50% reduziert. Schnäppchen sind es auch danach nock keine, aber die Auswahl ist riesig. Der Shop bleibt geöffnet, solange die Verkäufe die Tier einbringen.

Login failed. Despite our best efforts, something unexpected has gone wrong.

Absolutely brilliant. Rather fitting that when I try to log in for the first time in almost a year, this is the message I get.

The short version:
– Due to school/work/kung fu/life I haven’t had the time in almost a year to log in. Let alone make anything.
– Dropped all prices by 1/2.
– My store will be around until it no longer pays for the sim.
– If anyone is looking for 3/4 of a $195/month sim to rent, let me know.

They dropped by 1/2. No real reason other than I no longer take L$ out, it all goes towards paying the sim. It messed up my taxes last year – something about being self employed and not being able to get the big tax breaks for being a student – so in Jan I started to let it accumulate for the sim.

The store/sim:
I honestly don’t know if I’ll ever make any more poses. I don’t know if I’ll ever log in after today. I may still want to dink around if I ever get the time, but who knows. At this point in time, I’d rent the sim at cost if I could keep a small shop and workspace on the off chance I’d want to.

If not, I’ll either sell it or just give it up once the L$ runs out.

The personal bits:
Last fall, I took a full time job in the graphics department of an ad agency. As well as starting a graduate degree in game development. Lack of time and just a general disinterest in anything SL related ended up with me just not logging in since.

My first year of school was completed yesterday and I have a week until summer session begins to get things in order. I’m going from part-time to full-time so I’m going from almost no extra time to defiantly no time. Classes are oddly fun and a bit of a challenge, but I’m really enjoying programming. It’s nice to think mostly with the other side of my brain.

I had been thinking about this for a while now, but since I’ve been waiting all day for my new computer parts to arrive (hurry up UPS) I decided to go ahead. I suppose this way I won’t have to install SL.

Creating for SL was a big part of my life for 6 years. It was fun, thrilling, frustrating and annoying usually all at the same time. It was great to see SL grow and change over the years, but I think my time here is over.

Thank you all for the support.
