baker Blinker's Weblog

First and Second Life at least.

Various… October 5, 2009

Baker Bloch flying near the northwest tip of Corsica Prime. Thought this snapshot worthy of inclusion in this blog because of the nifty play of shadows on the checkerboard landscape.

Back on Big. I, looking at the Victorian House (now full of Chesaw/Pieland related pictures) from the still empty Econo apartment (modified). This structure, although I almost invariably rez it onto any land I’ve rented in the past half year or so, always seems to remain empty. Same story now with the new property at Aotearoa (I’m behind in writing this text, once again!). But a really nice view here; I’ll miss Big I. for sure.

Amazing developments happening on Azure Island No. 1, then. The island is being deleted sim by sim! Almost commiting suicide, it seems. Baker stands on the land he and Baker Blinker once owned in Gliese, looking toward the now empty void that use to be filled by the lovely forest they once loved so much. It’s not just happening on AI #1 (although that’s where it appears most dramatically, perhaps). It’s all over the islands, 1-5. Even though Azure Islands may stick around for a while in SL, it will not be the AI I once knew and loved. It will be different; I will not be a part of it. In the meantime, I must admit that the homestead sims of the Comet Archipelago are pretty darn nifty. Definitely worth a stay there, despite the brevity. Got a good story out of it! (Trivia Ratsuit and attachments).

More shocking pictures from Gliese.

Thought I’d include a snapshot of an Earl Dinkin work. Now Earl is someone both my friend Flynn and I discovered independent of each other. But one perhaps cannot say this is synchroncity, simply because he has so many galleries in SL: 8 at last count according to the latest SL gallery list. This particular gallery, The Man Against Eternity Tour, is in Keswick on the Sansara continent. In quickly checking, it looks like his galleries extend over the 3 oldest continents of Sansara, Heterocera (Atoll), and Jeogeot.

More Comet Archipelago pictures, this time of a green sim, Tuttle. Was *this* where Hucka D.’s reputed Money Pit located?
