Avatar Extraordinaire: Jopsy Pendragon

If you are wandering around or just enjoying your Second Life, take a trip (dare I say a trippy trip?) to The Particle Laboratory. If you cannot find it, look up Jopsy Pendragon. This avatar has been in Second Life for a very long time, and Jopsy's home in Teal (on the mainland, of course) is a land of delights. There is the lab itself, where you can learn all about creating particles. Every night from sunset to sunrise, there is the fireworks display, unparalleled in my experience. Jopsy has a house there, and there are other parts of the build to visit. Each part has its own surprises.

Partly Particle-ization

Thanks to Jopsy Pendragon's Particle Lab, and Ferret Bjornson's Easy Particle System, I now have wine that pours for the TSMGO act Cooking with Margaux. If you look closely you can see the wine pouring into the frying pan.

Another Cobra, Another Pungi ...

Osprey showed me this cobra created as a "sculpty", a 3D texture applied to a prim. It was quite lifelike, and it was a package ... snake, pungi, music, animations. Good design ... er you will have to ask Osprey who created this, sorry!

Gaiety Premiere!!

The Show Must Go On troupe has set up at the Gaiety Theatre in Penzance, Caledon. We will be performing there regularly, and our first show was a success, in the sense that the sim did not crash, but we fought some amazingly bad lag. Persephone Gallindo built this gorgeous theatre and the set you see is for the Dancers of the Emerald Isle, an act developed by Maxie Schneider.
