Snowdrop on snow patch .:SHD:.

2 prims (sculpted), no mod / no copy/ transfer, 30L.

For every 30 snowdrops sold, I will donate 1000L to the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief efforts of the American Red Cross (via purchase of Donation Linden bears). (That’s 100% of proceeds and a bit extra.)

You may have noticed that I turned off the music stream in the mainstore a while ago; the reason behind this is a security flaw in SL’s media implementation.

The word “tit” is now also filtered on the SL Marketplace! To draw some more attention to this poorly thought-out word filter, I added another tit to the line-up: the Black-breasted Tit (Rufous-naped Tit, Dark-grey Tit).

This bird is available exclusively on the Marketplace, for the low price of only 10L:

As of November 2010, “tits” has been returned to the list of Adult Filtered Words, and worse,
this time “tit” (singular) has been added as well. (The word had originally been removed from the filter list on June 17, 2009).

This makes it now impossible for me to advertise my tits, and impossible for anyone to find them in search, while accomplishing nothing (there’s a gazillion synonyms for “tits” in the breasts sense, not all of them filtered; there are no synonyms for the birds named “tit”).

A tit is a very common songbird in Europe. Some non-Europeans may not be familiar with it, but that doesn’t change the fact that they’re a daily sight here and if I say that there is a pair of tits in my garden, people will think of the bird first. There are blue tits, great tits, marsh tits, willow tits, coal tits, and more; none of them can now be searched for in SL.

.:SHD:. has opened a new outlet at the Soggy Bottom, the swamp in the sky!

The official opening is later today, and I have some opening specials for you that will be there all month:

— 2-prim sculpted mod/copy Moorhen, sound on touch, 1 L$
— 1-prim sculpted mod/copy Simple Reed, 0 L$

These are only available at the Soggy Bottom for now (they might go on regular sale at the mainstore at full price some time later), so go grab them!

Songbirds: Indigo Bunting .:SHD:.

Indigo Bunting, a blue finch-like North American bird. Comes in 4 sound options (on touch, intervals, intervals/daytime, silent), blinks, wearable (shoulder, sound on touch) and unscripted birds included.

SHD is part of two hunts this month!

Can you solve this murder mystery set in New Toulouse? Find all the clues to claim your prizes!

The mystery runs from February 1 to February 28. To begin, go to Laveau Square, New Toulouse and touch the hunt kiosk to receive your HUD and first clue. Wear the HUD, and follow the instructions on the notecard. When you spot the clue object, touch it to register your find on the HUD and receive your next clue. Continue until you have uncovered all twenty clues, at which point you can go to the prize hall and select your prizes!

While clue notecards will contain LMs to the locations, we recommend clicking the “Show on Map” button and following the beacon rather than teleporting. This will give you a nice little walking tour of New Toulouse!

The SHD prize for the Peace Valentine’s Hunt is an exclusive colour variation of the shoulder lovebird! The hunt will begin February 1st and run through February 15th. (SHD@Peace Island)
