First and Second Life at least.

Changes, Updates… July 5, 2009

Below is the poster Plant and I were talking about that I didn’t want to show in this blog. Changed my mind, just to remember what I’m talking about when I read this stuff years down the road for fun. 🙂

The other day I teleported into the Chromex sim for specific reasons I may get to in a moment involving my SL friend Flynn. I was quite surprised to see these gearchair automatons on the small peninsular of a beach in the southeast part of the sim, which I immediately recognized from Chilbo, particularly the factory on the northwest of town that Karoz visited on his second or third trip to that village, I believe. His tour of the factory is recorded in this May post.

I also decided to pop over to the recently opened adult continent known as Zindra. There are considerable expanses of forests, but all the ones I was able to check contain these 2 types of cypress trees first found in Nautilus City, I believe. And grass in places. Overall not too exciting a landscape, although I assume more trees may be added in the future. Some nice mtns. in areas, and I may change my mind on this, but for now I don’t see Baker Bloch spending a lot of time exploring muchof this continent. And Karoz is out of luck in that department since he has no pay information that Linden Labs can check to make sure he’s an adult. But he doesn’t seem upset about it (he’s still miffed about the same restrictions keeping him from exploring Nowtown, though — don’t think I’ve mentioned that in the blog yet).

Then it’s over to the Noru galleris to check out a couple new additions, including a rotating version of the Blue Feather Sea cube that first appeared, in non-rotating form, in the Something to Chro About Gallery as part of the “E” exhibit (more on that just above). Although I did delete the small, empty gallery #5 on the property (a modified Arcadia Asylum slum econo apt building, pictured here), I decided to hold of any more major changes to Noru until after the “E” exhibit is over in mid-to-late August or so. At that time, I will probably move the giant E that now hangs in the sky above Healy to the Noru complex.

Hucka D.:

Home seems to be a theme tonight for you, baker b. First at the Healy party and talking about home with that nice Russian lady, and mentioning you live in Noru. And then adding Healy. Kelly was there. Want to talk about that in relation to Healy? And other places?

bb:

Home came up, then, in HBA’s post, and then indirectly in Nish’s reply to my reply on her Big Orange Blog. She passed by my home on her Atoll hikes.

Hucka D.:

Is it your home? Remember you’re saying you live in Noru. And Healy. Do you really?

bb:

I *think* I do. I’m set up in Healy again (btb, the “Something to Chro about” gallery has reopened with the “E” exhibit. More on that asap.).

Hucka D.:

It seems like you build around your twinned galleries, the temple and then the Edwardston Station Gallery. You must think about another move.

bb:

I’m not sure I want to do that.

Hucka D.:

Healy is now helping you redirect.

bb:

We haven’t had to have conversations like this since I landed in Noru, Hucka D. Been pretty happy there, with the ongoing story and all. (Summarized now in “E”.)

Hucka D.:

Healy is healing… redirecting. Once again.

bb:

Well, if I did move back to you know where, then what would take place?

Hucka D.:

You would put the correct front back on the temple. It’s out of place where it is.

bb:

I think I need to stay longer on the outskirts of Chilbo.

Hucka D.:

You have another decision. Think of little Karoz. What would he do in Rubi?

bb:

I’ll give it 10 days more and then decide.

Hucka D.:

Remember that original post about the forest where I told you there was a spirit inside? Syd?

bb:

Yes.

Hucka D.:

Your assignment is to read over all those old posts starting with that one, and then making a decision. Next 2 weeks.

bb:

I think I’m going to stay where I am, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

You mentioned ruby slippers tonight. Silver… Rubi… Norman.

bb:

Let me think this out. I have a number of galleries in Noru, but the temple and the Edwardston Station Gallery, as you said, are the 2 I always build around. They are fairly easily moved. I like the circular based gallery, but haven’t managed to put any permanent exhibit in it yet, either in Noru or in Hibdon. Same for the little Econo apt. based gallery. The “Where?” exhibit is in Noru, but really it can just exist on the web. Probably should long term. How would I rearrange?… obviously I’d keep my base and build around it. Want to put the “E” in the sky now. Kelly’s gallery can’t go below it, really. Or can it?

Hucka D.:

You’re not going to be able to make a decision tonight. Let’s talk about The Bill.

Plant:

I want to see Oblong 13.

bb:

Hi Plant. Yeah, I thought about that today. Mountain Lake and all.

Plant:

I want to be in charge of something. Maybe that’s it.

bb:

What would you do?

Plant:

I would examine the center. Center Centre. 200.

bb:

Whats?

(to be continued?)

*****

bb:

You are old, 59, but you want to be 18?

Plant:

I am 59 going on 18.

bb:

You were born from the tension between Chilbo or Chilbol and Crabwoo (or Crabwooton), Plant.

Plant:

Taijitu.

bb:

You are the waterfall in Wheeler 09.

Plant:

Certne.

Hucka D.:

You will go back to “Beyond Rubidoo” tomorrow, baker b. Take pictures. Plants.

bb:

What did I decide the name of the new “town” would be?

Hucka D.:

Einsky I believe.

bb:

No. Rubicam, maybe.

Plant:

Norman. Center.

bb:

Hucka D., there’s a box on Oblong 11 that I wonder has something to do with this piece removed from Ives’ album cover in Wheeler 09. Oblong box, with the 6 pieces of the word “Oblong” within, I assume.

Hucka D.:

Plant wishes to discuss Oblong with you, yes.

Plant:

Yes.

*****

Hucka D.:

Plant thinks that you, baker b., should put Oblong more front and center. Not start people at Greenup but at Oblong. Do that in Noru, anyway. You better log off.

bb:

Thank you both.
