Sabine Stonebender’s “Ghost of the Depths…”

Sabine took her classic water dragon and turned it into a glowing ghost! Fantastic work by one of SL’s master artisans. Come check out this wonderful piece on Oyster Bay’s waterfront.

A lovely parting gift

I’m off for a weeklong RL vacation, so I thought it might be nice to leave you with one of the best machinimas that I’ve seen in a long time.

Kudos to Lainy Voom on a great film!  And I’ll see you in a week!

A magical evening, indeed!

Sunset on the 1st Anniversary

Sunset on the 1st Anniversary of Oyster Bay

As the first anniversary of Oyster Bay came to a close, Isolde and I took a minute to admire the sunset, gaze out over the water and reflect on a great evening – not to mention an incredible year!

Thanks to everyone who was a part of the Oyster Bay experience since the place opened a year ago.  Hopefully, this corner of the Metaverse made your Second Lives that much richer for having experienced it.   There is so much creativity, so much artistic passion in SL – I just was hoping to spotlight a little of it at first.  Now, we have a full-fledged cultural community!

Isolde also surprised me with a folder full of notecards from so many artists and friends of Oyster Bay wishing me well as the place hit this milestone.  I was totally overwhelmed by the kind thoughts expressed by so many friends.  It would be exceedingly self-serving to reprint them, but suffice to say that reading these notecards was one of the more emotional experiences that I’ve had in SL.  Thanks, everyone!

So here’s to 2008 – another year, another 365 days of wonder, amazement, fun and creativity ahead.  Let’s enjoy the experience, the art and our friendships going forward!

Machinima: MoShang Zhao & Komuso

Osprey Therian was wise (and talented) enough to make this machinima of the aural/visual feast from last night’s gig featuring MoShang Zhao and Komuso Tokugawa playing live – together – while connecting from different countries. MoShang’s in Taiwan; Komuso’s in Tokyo, Japan. Regardless, the music is great. Komuso’s particle show is a treat to watch as well!
