Machinima: Christmas 2007 at Oyster Bay

Rummaging through my old machinima footage, I saw that I recorded Madcow Cosmos’ incredible Christmas tree at Oyster Bay (links here and here).  A little video editing later, and we have my Christmas gift to you!  It’s not the greatest footage ever shot, but hopefully it brings back warm memories.

Note the Viggy “Christmas card” on the dock of Oyster Bay at the end of the piece…what a monstrosity!  No wonder this year’s piece was so tame.

Thank you for your generous support of my SL Live music experiments.
Please enjoy this 50 minute sonic snak pak of 2008 live music cuts from both SecondLife ™ and Real Life (tm*2).

Komuso’s SonicSnakPak is donationware, so if you like it and have some spare change feel free to drop whatever you want on me in L$ in SL or US$ via paypal at

I’d also mucho appreciate it if you could pass it on to your music loving friends who you think might like it! Your enemies even!!;-))

The SL tracks are all genuine SL Live gig recordings. I record all my gigs at 24bit 44khz before it goes out on the stream to SL so I always have a high quality master recording in case I actually play some blues instead of mistak…er, jazz!
