MADCHAT – Fears, Fetishes and Fantasies

MadPea has recently released a new product line – MADCHAT, an ice breaker type conversation starter social game that you can play with friends or loved ones. Each MADCHAT pack features 150 questions for $L175 whereas other question packs I have seen only hold 50 questions for $L200.

As of today, January 31st, 2018, there are three different themed packs to MADCHAT: Fears, Fetishes and Fantasies (my favorite so far), Have You Ever…, and Step Back in Time (FREE!). Step Back in Time is actually a group gift with no cost for membership. Free game? Hell yeah! There’s no reason not to grab yourself a copy at the MadPea Main Store now. While you are there, you can see the other themed packs on display and test them out too.

Livvy and I love question packs like these. Sometimes we would find a place to cuddle and pull out a question pack and just take turns answering the questions to learn more about one another. Only thing is, we’ve pretty much gone through them all the ones we have! However, now to expand to our collection, MadPea’s new MADCHAT will give us plenty of new questions to go through! (And I also suspect more will come later to broaden the MADCHAT product line.)

Our favorite MADCHAT pack so far is the Fears, Fetishes and Fantasies. Let me put a disclaimer now and say these questions from MadPea are BOLD! A lot more pointed than than the generic crowd appeaser questions we are used to, and I like it. Definitely an adults only pack, FFF asks questions I’d never think (or dare) to ask. Some examples are:

Have you ever fantasized about fucking one of your teachers?
Do you ever mentally strip strangers just for kicks?
Have you ever watched another couple get it on without them knowing?
Does pain turn you on?
How would you dominate your boss sexually if given the chance?
Have you ever woken up humping your pillow?
Do you believe people can be cured of phobias by hypnosis?

I want to go a little more in depth about MADCHAT, in general:

(Pro) Awesome Deal/More Content: Again, each of the currently available three themed pack contains 150 questions. So that is 450 new questions to go through! I’d have to buy 9 other kinds of question packs at $L1800 to equal the 3 MADCHAT packs for $L350 (1 pack free). The MADCHAT box looks nice too, coming in at only 1LI. It sort of reminds me of the Cards Against Humanity packaging. Very sleek and minimalistic, yet MADCHAT is a blast to have honest, blunt conversations with others. These questions are more for adults. I would not recommend for younger audiences.

(Pro) Copy: Because the product is copy, you won’t have to worry about only having one version out at a time. So if you left your pack at home, you can’t just re-rez another copy elsewhere.

(Con) Opportunity for Improvement: The downside to MADCHAT’s script of randomly reading lines from the question notecard is you can easily get repeat questions in a single sitting session. Therefore, the scripting of MADCHAT is not really geared towards Q&A bingers. But then again, sitting through 150 questions is actually quite a lot so I don’t really see the random questions with possible repeats to be that much of an issue. It would be annoying for those who do want to get through all 150 questions though. Maybe in the future, MadPea can implement a feature so that when the first time the game is rezzed, MADCHAT can be played in random mode or sequential mode. Or, more easily, just two product objects for rezzing, one featuring random play, the other sequential play.

Overall, I am quite happy that MadPea is diving in deeper with their question packs that inspire more interesting conversations. Most of these questions are not very generic. They are like the finer detail things people usually don’t talk about because most don’t think to mention is. In that sense, I really like MADCHAT and will definitely be going through each pack with Livvy. Get yours here now!

A Stockman’s Outback

This international love edition of Erotic Life magazine features a handful of sexies all around the world. I had the honor of representing the amazing country (and continent) – Australia. When I think of Australia, I think of the breath-taking and stunning Outback (and the gorgeous Great Barrier Reef, but that is another story!). Vast, remote land that stretches as far as the eye can see, the Outback is one of the largest natural areas on Earth. Full of wildlife and rich in many different ecosystems, Australia’s Outback is the prime setting for the photo that represents Australia.

To pay further homage to the culture of Australia, I’ve taken on the role as a stockman. Stockmen tend to the livestock at stations, usually sheep or cattle. Traditionally riding horse and using a stockwhip for stock work, stockmen usually wear a felt Akubra hat and adorn a plaited kangaroo skin belt that holds the stockman’s pocket knife. I, however, opted for a bowie knife in the naked version that can be seen in Erotic Life’s magazine here. I mean, have you seen that thing? As Crocodile Dundee says, “Now, -that’s- a knife!”

I’d Pause My Game For You

I’ve been slowly working on my man cave (keyword: slowly) which is pretty much half a gaming/entertainment room and half a sectioned off red room. Despite my man cave being catered to just me, I still like having Livvy there with me. I have a gaming chair for her and a gaming chair for me, though now that I think about it, she really doesn’t need her own dedicated chair because I just have her sit in my lap anyway. She knows that if I am in the middle of a gaming session, she could plop her sexy self into my lap and my full attention would be on her right away.

I'd Pause My Game For You | Mine & Yours

Stockholm&Lima made this nice Subtlety pillow that has found its way permanently in my game room. That is the cushion pillowy seat that I am sitting on with my beautiful love. The pillow serves as a sleek cushion with 12 outstanding singles and 9 bento couples animations:

12 Solo (non bento) animations male/female mixed
4 m/f bento cuddles *exclusive*
5 m/f bento adult animations (in the adult version only) *exclusive*

Ladies and gentlemen, let me take a moment and highlight Stockholm&Lima for a sec. I’ve been a longtime fan of Surrealia Anatine’s work for ages, dating back to when she owned ANA_mations. Talk about blast from the past, right? In fact my earliest items from her dates all the way back to 2010. You might be saying.. Damn, Caleb. Obsessed much? Well tell you what – Surrealia’s animations are worth being obsessed about because I know she makes quite a few of them on her own.

Her animations feel so natural and fluid, and are so well made. She is one of the very few creators I know who make their own quality animations to put in their products. Now, she has created her own bento animations! Though the pillow only has a few bento cuddles and bento adult animations, these are so well made and natural-looking. The face, the eyes, the hands, the fingers, and the body all move in a single animation – AMA_zing! (see what I did there? …. do you see it? lol I make myself laugh sometimes)

Anyway, check out a corner of my man cave gaming room with the Subtlety pillow actually nestled in my bigger gaming chair below.

Oh! I’m going to mention it in the credits, but I also wanted to actually note it here too, you’ll see Ariskea’s [Press Start] Vintage Girl Game[DVA] in the background and you’ll probably notice that your version is not the same. That is because I modded mine. I flipped the outer texture to showcase Ariskea’s original art for the arcade machine of D.Va. I also added my own title texture for the game since it didn’t have one and the rest of my arcade machines had a name to them. So I made up my own, playing off D.Va’s name with a taunt she would use in the actual Overwatch game. I also used the coin slots from Stockholm&Lima: Arcade Machine’s to the Ariskea one just for that retro pay to play style that I am used to.

Manners Maketh Man

I log into Second Life and my fiancée goes, “Why are you dressed like Clark Kent?” Mind you, the previous day I was getting my outfit ready for this Kingsman inspired post and I was shocked that Livvy’s first thought was Clark Kent! I gasp and reply back with bewilderment (and a little offended that my outfit was not obvious enough), “What?! I am dressed like a Kingsman!” “A what?” she questions, clearly having lived under a rock for several years. My brows flatline and I just stare at her. “You’ve not seen Kingsman?!” I thought everyone has seen it! It’s the hip modern version of James Bond! But you, my wonderful readers, surely have seen the movie, yes? Nod yes and everything will be okay.

MadPea made this awesome iSpy gacha set for Man Cave and the -first- thing I thought was Kingsman. So, of course I had to go with the inspiration, right? The set pays homage to the more classic spy whose kit is more low-tech yet cleverly lethal, which is why I immediately thought Kingsman/James Bond.

There are 18 Common and 2 Rare items in the MadPea iSpy gacha set. This set also includes a fun little puzzle that, when solved, gives a special prize and brand new achievement!

There are quite a few wearable and animated prizes that will definitely be a fun surprise for any aspiring agent such as the 15py handgun, blade cane, grappling hook, poison pen, and jet pack!

The 15py handgun comes in black, silver, or steel and fires shots! Just attach the handgun to your avatar and enter mouselook. Click to shoot and a bang of light fires from the weapon.

The blade cane is actually my favorite. Sleek and stealthy, this cane has two animations cycle through while standing with the cane. Then, for some fun action, click on the cane for an epic battle pose animation which will deploy the blade at the end of the cane!

The grappling hook is pretty neat and functions similarly to any other weapon. Attach to your avi, go into mouselook, and click to shoot out a hook!

The poison pen is rather cool. When clicked, the pen activates a poison cloud, perfect for those sticky situations for a lethal ambush with an innocuous looking writing utensil. I keep this in my pocket at all times.

The Jet Pack will raise your avatar and lower it by using PgUp and PgDown, respectively. When pressing PgUp, the Jet Pack turns on, allowing you to fly all around with unlimited fuel! Then when pressing PgDown, you’ll lower until you hit the ground and the Jet Pack will automatically turn off.

Habitat

I saw JIAN’s Panther Chameleon habitat at Collabor88 and was in total utter awe at how gorgeous it looked with its lush green scenery for this amazing chameleon. The detail is phenomenal, and the textures are absolutely beautiful. The habitat is rezzed decor (12 LI) and the chameleon is animated with my favorite animation of it shooting its tongue out. Honestly, as soon as I saw this habitat, it was an impulse buy that I absolutely needed. Even if the habitat wouldn’t really fit anywhere in my house, it’s one of those things where I’d -make- it fit with the house somehow because it is just too cool not to have out.

I wanted to feature this chameleon habitat in a different way from how it is intended (by using it as an actual environment/backdrop) but also really highlight the complete beauty and mystique of this product. In daylight, this habitat is breathtakingly gorgeous. In darkness, this habitat takes on a whole other living form.

She said “Yes!”

Originally written by Caleb… but commandeered by Livvy (green text)

As soon as 2018 came, I asked Livvy to marry me (finally). Being the clever boyfriend that I am, I made her think we’d be spending our New Year’s together very casually (but also cozily in each other’s arms), just enjoying each other’s company as the clock strikes 12. Being that we were online most of New Year’s Eve together, I literally had to set up my proposal scene right in front of her. Thank goodness for AFK time!  (Livvy here: Yes finally … I have been waiting for this slow day to finally come to a head and happen.  But only because I love him so much, and I feel like queen of the world when he is with me.  Mind you this is our 2nd time dating.  Time was not a good factor on our side and we have grown and learned so much to finally come back to this day and be so incredibly happy!) 

My plan was to have our own fireworks display on our land, which is something we normally do anyway like on the 4th of July. So, again, totally inconspicuous. But what she did not know was, I planned to have my proposal show up written like fireworks in the middle of the lit sky when I was setting off in world fireworks.  (Ohh this is story to be told!)

Throughout the day, I distracted her with shopping adventures and a total season of Stranger Things. I had never seen Stranger Things on Netflix yet and after the first few episodes, I loved it. So we binge watched the entire season that night lol, which worked great with my planned proposal because Livvy would not think anything of it. We were comfy in our sweats, cuddling in front of our camp fire, Netflixing and actually ‘chilling’ like normal people.  (Mind you his Christmas present to me was the gorgeous dress I am wearing below, and it threw me off that I was not to wear this for my Happy New Year fireworks! This made me very curious as to what was going to happen.  And watching all 8 episodes of Stranger Things was so totally romantical, because its our thing to watch shows together.  The fact he was so into this one just made me smile the whole time ♥)

When midnight came, I exclaimed, “HAPPY NEW YEAR, BABY!” And she did the same as I proceeded to set off all the fireworks I had set up earlier. These were a mix between my MadPea Fireworks I had from 2016 as well as my {damani} – Fireworks deLuxe from back in 2014 lol. While we were smiling and celebrating our first New Year together, I turned off the transparency of my written proposal in the sky to let it finally be shown. The proposal said, “Will You Marry Me, Livvy?” in all cool sparklers effect to sort of blend in a bit with the fireworks.  (What he is leaving out here is that I didn’t actually seeee the message at first.  It was a blur in the sky, and I thought I broke my av for a moment so I zoomed in, thinking that I could totally fix it .. but that didn’t happen so I zoomed way out and it came clear what the message was and it confused me a bit because I was so not expecting this.  I hit the escape key and back to my av my camera flew and there was Caleb on one knee!!!!)

Will You Marry Me, Livvy | Mine & Yours

We have been on voice this entire time and when I heard her give notice to the image that was coming in for her, I got down on one knee, waiting for her to finally realize what was happening. I was proposing to her and I started saying the following to her on voice:

Livvy Fhang, I met you in 2014. Started dating you in 2015. We went our separate ways but found each other again in 2017. While together, you have made me an incredibly happy man with you back in my life. Ever since the day our paths crossed again, I’ve been smiling ever since… and incredibly in love with you. 2018 is here and I want us to start our new chapter together. I’ve been waiting for this day – this very day… the first day of the year, as I want to start the new year with you as mine in every way. Livvy… will you do me the honor of letting me be your husband? Will you marry me?

(He totally made a typo in that proposal … but I am not going to share it because it should be perfect the way he wanted … even if he wasn’t nervous, I still say he was, that voice that he loves to think was sooo confident I could hear the slight shake, but shhh, he was all man when asking me everything)

While I was telling her how much she has meant to me and how happy she has made me, I could hear the happiness in her silence as she listened. Yes, her silence has a voice – just like how you can hear someone smile… or choke back feelings of elation… or even tears of happiness. I was beaming the entire time and then as I finished my words, a resounding, “YES!” from her lips. My goodness how happy it made me to hear her say that… and how happy it made me to hear her happiness as well.  (I mean I waited a really long time to get this question from him.  Then again he is so slow with things, always wanting them perfect.  Though we were a bit backwards in how we did this.  Most of our plans were already planned minus the asking part.  Which most couples dont do until asked?  But we arent your average couple, we are us and we know how we tend to work, it was a matter of time before it happened anyways.  And he did it in the most perfect way.  I am just impatient and always will be. How he deals with me and still put a ring on it … amazes me! 

I love this woman so damn much (I love you too, baby). I can’t wait for so much many more moments and memories to share and create together. Happy New Year, indeed! We’re engaged! (And I am not letting go for one moment, you are stuck with me!)
