I wasn’t in-world much yesterday and in the afternoon I had guests in RL. I had setup my DVR to record a CNBC program about video games which was advertised to include a segment about Second Life. So, in the evening I watched the show and it was all very interesting, then came the segment about Second Life.
Second Life was presented well but rather superficially, and there was the profile of Britney Mason. Oh my! Britney Mason is actually a married man with several children and he apparently earns a living or second income as a female avie doing “consulting” in Second Life. He theoriezes that his female persona is necessary for his business, sort of his “brand” and yada, yada… yada, yada.
Anyway, Britney has big bosoms (the kind guys prefer for their female avies) and he spends US$400 on his avie’s wardrobe each year; all for business purposes, of course! Hehe. I wish I could spend $400 a year on my wardrobe; that’s roughly L$100,000!
This morning I was still curious about Britney and took a look at her SL profile; that’s her standing in front of a “liarsofsl” sign. I didn’t see anything about Britney’s business in her profile; no Picks, just a reference to her website.
Naturally, I had to checkout Britney’s website ( britneymason.com) and was surprised to discover that the last post was April 22nd:
April 22nd, 2008
Is up and at you!. Learn about Ashlee Simpson pregnancy rumors! American Idol chat! Ivanna Trump married again! Who left CSI? All this and much much more!
Hmmm? I wonder what kind of “consulting” Britney does? Also, Britney is apparently “Adam’s Girl” (that’s what the profile says) and this caused me to wonder if Adam knows his girl has a fierce beard shadow. Hehe. Well, he does.
Britney Mason isn’t the first guy to choose the role of a woman in SL, the SL Offical Guide includes surveys that indicate that upwards from 18% of female avies are actually males. Of course, everyone has a right to play the role they choose in SL; however, it was a little wierd being presented with a televised introduction to the man, his wife and children.
Britney wasn’t an awful looking guy or anything, just an “average Joe”. And I suppose his wife can be thankful that he spends his days and nights and weekends running around SL, instead of chasing her around the bedroom in his finest lingerie. Hehe.
I also wonder what color his spectulum is. Hehe.
