Happy New Year, Mr. and Mrs. Avatar, and all the scripts in C##!
Friendly greetings to Rod Humble, the new CEO of Linden Lab and King of Second Life... may his reign not rain on our parades.
(Spare the Rod my grief, but spoil the child-avatar?)
Hopefully the Lab all ate black-eyes peas for good luck, because they've certainly picked up their share of black eyes in the press this year.
Want to hear more? There's a new Grid's Honest Truth, sliced and dives by the editor-of-the-year and producer-of-my-dreams Zen Paine. Give it a look, listen, and lick as you break all your new year's resolutions.
As for my own new year's resolutions, I've got one and only one: to one day appear on Paisley's show and look out over a sea of smiling bag-headed faces.
Until then, well, a boy can dream... that's the Grid's Honest Truth!
Guess what, Mr. and Mrs. Avatar!
The Grid's Honest Truth #5 is now online, with #6 and #7 coming soon.
Unless, of course, we have to rollback the Treet.TV servers, which means we'll have to hold yet another star-studded premiere party full of gifts and prizes and...
Oh. That's right. We didn't have one of those.
Instead of a limo and a driver, I get a notecard full of landmarks.
Nothing but the best for your pal SecondLie!
Sure, Blue mars is on the cloud, but you can stick SecondLie where the sun don't shine... in your iPhone in your pocket. (Look up "The Grid's Honest Truth" in iTunes!)
If you've got questions, comments, or just need a smack to the back of your head, this is the place... write me and all your questions will get answered.
And that's the Grid's Honest Truth!
Yes, Mr. and Mrs. Avatar, it's true!
The fourth episode of The Grid's Honest Truth is now up on the site, out on the feed, and available in your pocket!
Texas, She Of The Texas-Sized-Heart, tells me that we're now up on iTunes, helping Steve Jobs take over the world one MacAddict at a time:
Just go to that page, subscribe to the podcast, and iTunes will take care of the rest.
Best of all, it's absolutely free! (After you've bought your iPod and iTouch and iPad and iMac and iGIVEUP iAM iNSOLVENT!)
There's more news to choose to lose coming, so get your saddles on your motorcycles as "Good Game, No Rematch!" Zen chops and slides the Fiveapalooza episode!
Oh, and come on by The Church of SecondLientology on South Chilbo when you've got a chance. It's just barely useful and hardly interactive at the moment... heck, it could be a Linden InfoHub if I were to tell my builders to cool their jets!
And that's the Grid's Honest Truth!
As my third Grid's Honest Truth hits the airwaves, I'd like to take a moment to answer the protests organized by the SLSPCVA
(Second Life Society For The Prevention of Cruelty To Virtual Animals)
regarding my riding a shark like a surfboard.
The shark is stuffed, just like my pants.
As for your concern that my Linden Bears are manufactured using
unsustainable means through unethical business practices, I do not need
remind you that this is Second Life, and there's no such thing as ethical
business practices here, let alone any business practices at all!

The Grid's Honest Truth
GOOD EVENING, MR. AND MRS. AVATAR, AND ALL THE SCRIPTS IN C#!
I'M YOUR ROVING MISREPORTER, SECONDLIE, WORKING DAY AND NIGHT, BRINGING YOU THE GRID'S HONEST TRUTH FROM ALL AROUND THE GRID.
IF YOU HAVE ANY JUICY TIPS OR LEADS, PLEASE WIPE THEM OFF AND THEN SEND THEM ALONG TO SECONDLIAR@GMAIL.COM, OR DM ME ON TWITTER @SECONDLIE. (IF I AM NOT FOLLOWING YOU, ARE YOU SURE YOU EXIST? BETTER CHECK THE MIRROR TO MAKE SURE.)
AND IF YO-
WHAT? I'M IN ALL CAPS?
HOLD ON... ONE SECOND...
(Sometimes my typewriter's Caps Lock key gets stuck... these dangblasted executives can't be bothered to buy me a brand new electric typewriter for my office, and this old Underwood needs a trip to the Undertaker!)
Anyway, stay tuned to Treet.TV's newest show: The Grid's Honest Truth, because nothing's scarier during this Halloween season than the truth... especially to those who don't want you to know it!
No, I won't be showing off the hottest fashions like that Angie Mornington, or interviewing the movers and shakers like Paisley Beebe (I'd like to race her Dirtfield Track any day of the week! What gams!), because we don't have the budget or the time for it... JUST THE GRID'S HONEST TRU-
(UGH HOLD ON.... there, how's that? Better?)
You'll be able to get The Grid's Honest Truth via this site, before most major Treet.TV shows, and eventually through that newfangled iTunes program that's all the rage with the kids these days.
That's the Grid's Honest Truth, and that's no lie!
