The words "Riffage" and "Meatspace" Added to the Dictionary

I've long been a fan of the creation of words by prefix or suffix. English language has taught me that it is only a theory, written by the historian, The Man. Meanwhile the most used words of our lexicon are probably found at Urban Dictionary these days. I've always created words by adding -age , -ish , and -ness to be more descriptive, and I think, just because it's a word not in the dictionary yet, doesn't mean it's not a word.


n. guitar riffs.

Slightly more annoying than making nouns into verbs for no reason ("hold on, I'm Twittering!") is the trend of pluralizing them with "age". No need to say "make love" when "humpage" will do just as well. And hell, we can label all fire alarms with "Fuck, burnage!" to make it that much clearer to everyone.



n. The physical world, as opposed to virtual.

Doubtlessly coined by a level 80 Druid tank somewhere in the World of Warcraft, it's a sad day for the species when what you may recognize as that in which everything exists, needs a special term to differentiate it from the "real" world of Facebook friends and LOLcats.

Soon you'll hear it used in sentences like, "So all of the crops are dying and the air is turning poisonous? Bah, who cares about all that stuff that happens in lame old Meatspace."

Music Clubs in Second Life: A Labour of Love (Editorial by Thunda Masala)

Music Clubs in Second Life: A Labour of Love
By Thunda Masala of "Twisted Second Life"

The biggest attractions and entertainers in Second Life are also the biggest losers.

Music clubs have a special place in Second Life. They are more than their music; they provide a place for people to meet, chat, listen to their favorite music and dance. A lot of social thing goes on in the clubs. They also are places for people to show off their newest acquisition and fashion sense.

Since Second Life does not have a ‘directed’ game plan in the virtual life, it is safe to assume that clubs evolved as one of the earliest means of entertainment on the grid long before voice chat was introduced.
