Getting to the Bottom of Anshe’s Press Conference

Yes, devoted Herald fans, Pat the Rat is back! And while you eagerly wait — like little Duran Duran groupies — for the pundits and eggheads to break down the transcript of Anshe Chung’s press conference, I thought I would talk about something that really matters: What kind of footwear is appropriate for an event that — dare I say it? — heralds the birth of the metaverse? You do want to know? Well borrow a pencil, find out how to use it, and then write down what I have to say…

The always fashionable, yet comfortable Anshe Chung sports a lovely pair of platform sandals.

What’s this? Adam Reuters dresses up in a nice suit and tie for the occasion, but are those sneakers he’s wearing?

Good Lord Adam, dressing for comfort is one thing, but those kicks are fucking eyesores!

Catherine Linden wears some boots that would have been perfect if the event were held in Northern Canada in January. Check the weather reports next time, Catherine.

Guni’s shoes are a bit Teutonic for my taste. Lighten up Guni! You guys are millionaires!

John Horner shows how its done when you hang with financial types. His look says “GinkoTec” don’t you think?

Klara Kasei showed she was all about a different kind of business in these ever so cruel boots. Those would scare a Gorean master. Save them for your next trip to the Lost Angel’s kill and rape sim.

Rob Holden, a.k.a. Robert Holmes of wears these very sensible sneakers. Well, they would be sensible at a church picnic in August. For chrissakes Rob, dress up! You’re supposed to be representing real world media here.

Sphere Gasser, who writes for the SLED Picayune and is a grad student in Interactive Communications at Quinnipiac University in real life wins the toe cleavage award. Those shoes can’t be very comfortable, but you probably got the attention of Uri and all the other aging drooling horn dogs in the audience, so if that was your mission: score!

But without question, the winner for best shoes at the affair goes to Frank Koolhaas, who in real life is of course Mario Gerosa, Editor in Chief of Architectural Digest Italia. Ottimo!

    Are you trying to turn SL Herald into SL Style magazine? ..God, you suck.

    (Catherine Linden is sexy in that boots, you’re just jealous.)

    I so want Klara’s boots!

    Why the hell are the insides of our pant cuffs always flesh colored anyway?

    They aren’t if you wear socks! You should try it sometime.

    I find this heavily insulting….I am the admin/designer of Lost Angel’s and we are NOT a rape/kill sim.

    We are an active Dark Roleplay community. Yes theres killing, yes theres sex, but I find having my creation and the community of people that call it home being lumped in with Gor and being referred to in such a shallow manner is nearly libelous.

    Next time you wish to use Lost Angel’s as a reference, at least know what the place is about before you blatantly misrepresent us to your readership.
