Who let the dorks out?

Leek Love June 9, 2009

So, many of you are most likely familiar with the funny and talented Tarissa Tripsa of Fallobst. If you aren’t, and you are a fan of awesome, then I suggest you check out her blog. Anywho, what you may not know is that she has created a fabulous world of wonder and vegetables…. leeks to be specific. Yes, Leek Island got it’s name from the viral phenomenon Leekspin or Loituma Girl. The catchy clip features an anime girl, Orihime Inoue, twirling a leek around to the song “levan Polkka” by the Finnish folk group, Loituma.

Free Leeky goodness!
Grab your swinging leek complete with song, gesture, or a silent leek if you prefer.

Now that may be more information then you wanted, but the simple addiction of that damn clip is so awesome that it spawned a whole world, thanks to Tarissa! If you are into the Japanese/kawaii/BP*-esque look that is just so adorable in SL, then you will love this cozy little island. There is plenty to explore, like colorful forests and girly-rustic hangouts. Not to mention plenty of photo-ops with cute poses-o-plenty! There’s even quirky giant birds that would make Hitchcock say ‘awwwww’. Don’t forget to grab your own free spinning leek at the entrance created by Duck Nipple’s beanster potato, and if you can, tip the adorable statue from The Little Girl shop and show Tarissa how much we all appreciate a little imagination and fun :).
