Yee-haw! It’s the blog roundup.· A Netherlands court decides Second Life goods have real life value, and sentences teenagers to community service for nabbing another player’s amulet and mask in a virtual reality game. In Japan, a woman faces jail time for murder of virtual ex-husband.

· Meanwhile, back in real-reality, here’s a Golden Orb Weaver (aka a really friggin huge spider) chowing down on a Chestnut-breasted Mannikin. Ew.

· Now cleanse your eyeballs with a photo of a really cute squid (Helicocranchia pfefferi) that appears to be a hybrid of Piglet and Gonzo.

· Scientists develop a teeth-operated piano pedal for paraplegic musicians.

· Work off your carbon footprint by boogying down at Watt: the world’s first sustainable dance club.

· Then grab a bottle of Tap’d NY: “Not From the Top of Some Far Away Mountain.”
