Apothecary Bottles

This backdrop is tentative ... Osprey was planning to make shelves, but I needed something to size the bottles up wiht, so I made shelves anyway. We have a fun dancing bottle act we are working on. Look for updates later!

Five Years in Second Life!

Today is my rezday. Five years ago today I joined Second Life; it took some time to get used to it, what with typing movements, alternating night and day, and building, but I am quite comfortable there now, with my friends and creative work to do.

This is the earliest pic I have, from August of 2004. I am on my deck somewhere (I don't even remember all the places I have lived), with my purchased patio furniture and rug. Now I make most of what I use, but then I really had no clue how to do anything. Thanks to those who understood building, scripting, particles, and those sorts of things, I am able to be a bit more independent, but I still buy stuff that is beyond my capacities.

Second Life has given my life a new dimension. It is not a substitute for but an augmentation of, my First Life.

Admiring My Work

I found an image of an old apothecary bottle online and made it tonight. I may as well keep working on the bottle sketch as I have little else to occupy my mind. I think it is quite handsome. I tried to upload its numerical label but the server was being uncooperative.

The Show Really Must Go On!

Our Director, Osprey Therian, has decided to step down (or back), and we are attempting to pilot the ship of our variety show on our own (we = Headburro Antfarm, Lucy Tornado and I).

The show has always been Osprey's project, and we worked hard at it. Now we will continue in a different manner.

We hope to have at least one show a month in our home theatre and one elsewhere, but we have not settled on a real plan yet.
