Freespirit Crumb was recommended to me by a friend of mine who said “[She] is probably the hottest hobo on the grid.” As I’ve seen quite a number of SL Hobos, all of them interesting avatars, I was especially interested in meeting a hot one. I was not disappointed, and she goes a lot beyond just good looks as you'll see. It is a great pleasure and an honor to introduce this week’s Post 6 Grrrrl, and our first Post 6 Hobo, Freespirit Crumb. ~Timothy Morpork]
I like to live on my own terms. I have never brought a cent of my money into any online world, and I never will. I believe that there’s more than enough free stuff on this planet, the real one and the virtual ones, to keep me alive and happy. So I move from place to place, see the sights, and move on when I’m ready.
Ken and Barbie don’t interest me, never did. I like the one-eyed GI Joe and the rescue hero who’s missing an arm. Ken and Barbie like to talk about their Abercrombie encrusted souls fully confident that we care what they think, and prepared to whip up some drama when our interest in them lags. My GI Joe and battered rescue hero friends don’t need to make drama, they’ve survived the real thing. It’s hard to be bulimic when you don’t have enough to eat.
That’s not to be heartless toward all the tweens and teens who suffer from self image issues and other crap that they picked up from television. Our society is creating them by the truckload and we will soon be a western world full of prescription pill zombies afraid to say or do anything original for fear of being judged. There was a lot less of this, I feel, before Big Pharm, of course, but also back when tweens and teens went to bed early by choice because they were exhausted from doing their chores on the farm, or working at the family business. Suburban life breeds assholes and angst. Kids- turn off the computer, go outside, volunteer somewhere. Tire yourself out. Living in your head and on your computer will just make you miserable.
So you read this and say “What a horrible bitch” or something. I don’t care. I’ve been given “usually a few paragraphs” by Timothy Morpork to speak to thousands of people, so I’m going to say something meaningful. It’s a nice system, I show you my tits and I get to talk to the masses. I may go long because I showed you my cunt too. Did you know that Word underlines cunt as misspelled, but not tits?
I think that Second Life is a magical place. I don’t spend as much time there as I like because I borrow internet access when I can so as to stay off the real grid as best I can. I have met a lot of wonderful people in-world and I cherish them all, but it took some searching, I must say.
If I were the Lindens, I would offer people two big buttons when they first rez in-world. One button is shaped like a brain, the other button is shaped like tits. Whichever you choose, you won’t ever see anyone who chose the other as they are two separate grids. Not judging here, just saying I had to wade through several thousand guys hitting on me for every smart and genuine person I met here. We might like to shake our tits on the brainy grid too, but that’s not ALL we do.
So, I’m packing my bindle and getting ready to pad the hoof to the next good flop. Until I see you again, may you travel safe and carry the banner. I’m no Angellina, so while my name may be “crumb”, know that there ain’t none on me, so if you see me, let me call in to your fire, more than a few have said I’m blowed-in-the-glass. Peace.
