People from Other Countries

I started thinking about people from other countries tonight. My friend Franz had a piano and I started to play Beethoven on it. I really like to play the piano. Franz sat and listened dressed in, shall we say, a slightly informal attire. Anyway as I was playing I started thinking of all the people I meet from Europe. I used to think people from Germany were very good at engineering things but never realized how complicated the German culture is and how complicated people can be. As I played I realized that people in the US are really sort of simple and easy to figure out. We elect people for office who think they are in a bad cowboy movie and don't understand why the rest of the world gets upset with us. Well maybe now we put someone in who has more sense - maybe people will start liking people in the US more, at least I hope so.

I think that is why it is good to have friends all over the world, at least that is what I have learned. Well enough of that. (This picture to the right makes me look like a crazed vampire.)

It was very nice to be in a homey place and that is what this house feels like. I am not sure "homey" is a real word but I think it must be. Homey or homie? Hommy? no. Homey must be a word. Some languages have really good words that mean "a home like comfortable atmosphere" so maybe someone has a suggestion.

Franz and I were talking about being one year old tonight. SL is so surreal in some ways. I don't like to say anything is "surreal" because it is used so often by people who don't have a clue what surrealism is all about. But I do feel that life in SL is another level of reality or something. When I first started I would have dreams that I was rezzing to a new place or something like that. That may have been because I stayed up so late inworld. Anyway that's my blog tonight.

Happy Holidays

Well this time of year everybody is busy with things. Even if you are a pagan there is a holiday soon, Yule. They sometimes say people get real depressed this time of year. I am real lucky and have nothing to feel depressed about. In fact I am rather happy, so much so that I took a picture in this Santa Hat. My friend Franz gave me the hat. He is going to take some time away from SL so I will miss him.

The other day I was at a kiss auction to auction kisses to raise money for a SIM named Chiaroscuro. I forgot to take a picture but it was decorated very nicely for the event. I must not be the kissable type, or else it was late and people were auctioned out or something because my bids were, well how shall I put it? - not so high. But fortunately my friend Leigh came to the rescue.

Well I hope everyone is happy, healthy, etc. and has a happy holiday. I will try to put more interesting things in my blog, this was sort of a dulls-ville blog. In fact as I am writing it I am amazed at how totally dull it is. I guess this will be my New Year's Resolution - to make the blog more exciting. Well bye for now.

Sometimes You Have to Be Kind of Crazy

Well I came back to SL after several days. Then I thought I should write some stuff. But then I started thinking that maybe I would sound like a stuffy person. Then I started thinking that I should not worry what I thought people would think. We are all so funny, we think what people will think. When I talk to my friends I can only say what I can type. And I think my friends can "read between the lines" sometimes but it is almost like a new way of communicating.

I guess I am just thinking too much.

Language is such a strange thing. We use words and hope the power inside of them can express our souls. I guess humans invented language as a tool just like we invented hammers and knives and such. Language is very good but sometimes it is not perfect.

I am hoping that my friends don't think I am going off into cloud 9 or something.

The other night I went to a strip contest. My friend Leigh was at it. He didn't win the contest but it was good to try. Also I talked a lot to my friend Franz. I think sometimes you just have to not worry and dance a crazy dance. Well that is all I can think of saying.

Hello all my friends - I may not be around for the next few weeks due to some RL stuff but hope to see you all soon.

A Mix of Jokes and Some Not Feeling Well

I had not been in world for a few days and met up with Franz. Poor Franz was not feeling well and I could tell right away. Sometimes I think he has a hard time to get to sleep. I have had that sometimes and I know how bad it can be. I took this picture while we talked about stuff and it looks like we have giant legs! Franz I hope you feel better soon.

Then I met up with Leigh. We went to this place where they play old radio shows and you sit around the camp fire and listen. The radio shows are mysteries and science fiction and stuff. Leigh said they don't normally run The Jack Benny Show.

Then we started telling jokes. I am not sure you would call them great jokes, in fact they are not even OK jokes, well let's be honest: they are BAD jokes. These jokes could stay in private chat cyberspace but since I want to torture the whole world here are highlights: (or lowlights)

[18:07] Rammy Urriah: i ate some KILLER eggplant tonight - i have an upset stomach

[18:20] Rammy Urriah: the woman: yes
[18:20] Rammy Urriah: the rabbit: "well i am just westing"
[18:20] Leigh Eel: OMG
[18:21] Rammy Urriah: i guess it should have been Elmer Fudd in the refridgerator
[18:21] Leigh Eel titters depite himself

Fish Guy

This picture just looks so cool. I am a Pisces. Franz found this for me for a Zodiac dance. It just really looks cool.

And I won the contest!

Stress and More Stress

You know how some days you just feel stressed out? I have been feeling that way. I am not normally a stressed person but I was not feeling so good yesterday and today. I think stress comes when stuff happens that you can't control and just have to wait and wait and wait until it happens.

I went to my friend Ricardito's house in SL but he was not home. I haven't seen him for a while. In fact I haven't seen a lot of my friends for a while. I was out of world for a few days.

I don't know if it is me but everyone seems to be mad at Linden Labs these days. I wonder if people will leave? I am not sure what I think - but I am not mad at them. I will have to think on this more.

Well hope everyone is well in SL land - and I'll be seeing you. (or from the TV show The Prisoner "be seeing you" - if anyone knows what I am talking about)

"You are number 6"

"I am not a number - I am a free man"

Sofa Talk With Friends

Dear blog readers, sometimes I think and think before I write something. I was just sort of sitting around with Spanki, Franz, and Quagmire, then a new person (I feel so bad that I forgot his name - Areo I think) came. Perhaps I will met him again so I can put him in my blog. Anyway I felt like even though I was typing and typing a bunch of stuff, I really couldn't be real. I mean I wanted to really communicate but I could only just type. It really felt so good to just sit around and talk about stuff. I think that maybe my friends know me better than I think though so maybe it is OK.

Last night I had a weird dream. I dreamed I was watching cars drive down the road. One of the cars started to fly. I thought to myself "that is odd for a car to fly". I started thinking the car will fall to earth and crash. And it did. It fell and the crowd watching all gasped. It crashed and smashed up probably killing the driver.

My friend Leigh had a very shocking and sad thing happen in his RL the other day. He called in IM so I went over to his his house. I hope he is doing better today.

I like to write blog posts that are sort of funny that people will have a good feeling and laugh with me but I guess I am not to funny tonight. Well I hope everyone is well and will see you all soon.

Feeling Small

I don't have anything to say. I saw Dougg and we went to the Greenies house. I saw a big box of instant turnips - yum.

Sometimes I guess I feel small in the universe. Before I learned to read I would look at pictures in a book and try to guess what the stories were about. I would look at the printed words and try to identify as best I could with as little as I knew. I am guessing that if I saw a picture of me looking at a giant box like this I would be very curious what it was about. But I really don't have a story to go with this picture. So I will just have to leave it as people asking "Why is Rammy walking around a giant kitchen?". But it does look like a cool picture.

I guess my little life is not very important when you think of all the zillions and zillions of stars in the sky. But I think our lives are important to other people sometimes - so maybe that is the secret to life. Maybe we are just here to help other people. But what are the "other" people here for?

Three Times Rule

Dear blog readers I am so sleepy I don't know if I can even type tonight. Leigh and I were talking tonight. Dougg came by for a little while but he went away. Dougg is very small and I hope we did not scare him away since we are bigger than he is.

I had a theory about three times. If you think one of the things you want to do real badly is to ride a roller coaster you shouldn't just want to have as your goal to ride the roller coaster. That's because if you really really want to ride on it the first time you ride you will have so much adrenaline that all you will remember is holding on for dear life. Then when it is done you get off and say "well I rode on the roller coaster".

The second time you ride it you will start to learn where all the curves are and you can sort of appreciate it more. But the third time you will know all the curves and how things feel and all that. So I think if you really want to do something you should not have a goal to just do something but the goal should be to do it three times.

I Build A House - But It Ends Up Looking Goofy

Well dear blog readers I was wishing I had a house and figured that I can build one. But the results didn't look so good when I got done.

First I thought maybe I will use lots of patterns and colors since I like color. It started out square so I thought I would put this really cool dome on the top. I thought I could make it look like a little Hagia Sophia. I put some colors in the dome texture. I thought why not use many different textures so it would look bright and exciting? Well when I finished I stepped back to check it out.

Instead of a masterpiece it looked more like a house built by Moe, Larry, and Curly. Then I didn't have a door to put on. I will have to learn how to write door scripts or find a freebie door I guess. I stepped back and come to the conclusion I may need to think before I build, rather than just throwing stuff up like a goof ball. But then when I think too much I make stuff that looks boring. I guess the best thing is to be 50% goof ball and 50% super planner freak.

People Leaving

The other day I saw Andrej and had not talked to him for a while, at least a month. I took a picture. We talked about a lot of stuff.

My friend Franz has gone away. Maybe he needs a vacation. I hope he doesn't go away forever. It is good to take a vacation if you want to think about things. I hope I see him again someday. I hope he reads this.

I have keep talking to other people who say they are not into things in SL like they used to be. Maybe that is how things go. I wanted to do a lot of stuff at first but never really did. Well this post is just a mess. I don't know what I really want to say.

Blogs, Dancing, and Leaping Lizards

Usually at dance clubs people just sort of blurt out a lot of goofy chat lines and say stuff that looks like a picture with the text. Sometimes I get nosy and start looking at people's profiles. I noticed Karl Herber's profile (that's his picture) and saw he had a blog so I thought I would take a look. I enjoy it when people write a whole lot of stuff and we started IM talking. I put a link to his site and one he writes on SL freebies (a handy thing to read) on the side.

As I was talking to Karl it made me think of blogs and SL and why people write them and why people read them and who reads them and so on. Different people look at the world so differently and it is good to share that.

OK so if you look at the title of this blog you are probably wondering why I put "Leaping Lizards" in the title. Well a title is an important part of a story and just "Blogs and Dancing" seemed like it needed something else. Little Orphan Annie always said "Leaping Lizards" but I never knew why. Did they have lizards in New York City cartoon land?

Cleaning Out and More

I forgot to take a picture last night but I found an old one to put it tonight's blog. It is of me playing the piano. I got a freebie shirt and it says "Star" on it. Once I was wearing it and a person I didn't know walked up to me and just said "Hey take that shirt off - you ain't no star!". That was rather mean to just walk up to someone and tell them to take their shirt off like that. But I think he was just joking because he said "LOL" after.

Anyway my friend Leigh was cleaning out some stuff and was sort of worried he should not have of thrown some stuff away. So a poem was written to document the event:

life is rough - so use less stuff
when in doubt - throw it out
set them free, set them free
if they return it was meant to be

It is sad that people do loose touch with each other. Sometimes I think life is just like a big bus station. People sit down - wait for their bus - and leave. And then you wonder what bus they got on and where they went.

Die, Der, und Das

OK now let me tell you what I have learned. In German you can have something that is either male, female, or neutral. At least in Spanish there are only two genders but three! Well Die is for something that is female. And silly me used to see the word "die" and think it was pronounced like the English word die, to stop living. But it is just like "dee" ryhmes with "the". That makes some sense. It is like diesel, the fuel invented by Rudolf Christian Karl Diesel.

So Die katzen, and Der hund. Well so far so good. But then my brain went into overload with Das. I remember the movie Das Boot (not to be confused with DOS Boot in computers) so a boat is neutral. BUT not if the boat has a name. But wait - there's more! Sometimes rivers are male and some rivers are female. Well I guess a lot of things are both male and female.

Anyway the whole point of how Franz and I got into this discussion and how I learned a lot of cool new stuff about the German language is because of spiders, if you can believe that. That is because we say "it" when we talk about a spider in English. And sometimes we say "it" when we talk about animals.

Well I still don't like spiders.

Cellar Doors and Ball Peen Hammers

Well readers you may wonder why in the world did I choose "Cellar Doors and Ball Peen Hammers" as the title. Well let me tell you the story.

Leigh and I went to see Burning Man in SL and he suggested this writers party for people who write and love literature. I was almost too embarrassed open my mouth because everybody sounded so smart. I was afraid I would say something dumb and people would think I was running for US Vice President or something.

Then somebody said something about "hula" or something and I remembered I had a cool hula hoop. I started giving them to everybody. Then Leigh remembered he had a pogo stick and started giving out them. Before long people started to pogo AND hula! It was sort of funny to see a very literate group of probably college professors and serious writers all pogo-ing and hula-ing while talking about DH Lawrence and Virgina Wolfe.

For some reason (I can't remember why now) Leigh said something about a "ball peen hammer". Those are those hammers with a round ball head. I like the sound of the word - ball peen hammer. Then he said a writer mentioned the word cellar door as a word that had a nice sound. So I guess that's all I can remember .

Nothing But Sitting On The Balcony

Poor Franz made a really nice notice for the club but it said "Thursday, September 24" not "Thursday, September 25". What a drag. I've done that sort of thing before too. I told him before it went out and he was going to change it.

We sat on the balcony talked some - just a boring day - just talking. I think the frat house is going to closet of Franz's inventory.

Now I must make a confession before my conscious gets to me. Last night there was a really fun Octoberfest party and I tried to look "German". I wore a handmade black, red and gold shirt to match the German flag. Some people said it was quite creative, thinking I had made it myself. Well I must confess my friend Leigh Eel made it and gave it to me before hand. I just let people believe I made it. Now the truth is out - Rammy Urriah - guilty of shirt fraud!

One Should Not Be Verkrampft

Here is a picture of Franz, Quag and myself. We were talking and talking and Franz gave us a new word - "verkrampft".

I think the Germans have so many really good words and since I an English speaker I guess I like to snatch good words and put them up in a great big word collection box. Verkrampft is similar to feeling cramped up or tied up in knots, at least that is how I understand it. I think the word "cramp" must be a relative of it.

Franz says it is the opposite of easy. I will have to think and see if I can start to use it right. (Franz if you are reading this I hope I have this right)

I keep learning so many different things by just being around people. Maybe one day I will go to Germany and see it for myself. I will have to learn a whole lot more German words though because I don't want to visit a place and be rude by not knowing the basic words to be polite.

Making Clothes

I was really feeling sick in RL last week - what a drag. But I had joined a magick group and have been unable to get to the meetings the past few times. (magic with a "k" means a more spiritual type of magick in my mind, as opposed to "magic" which is the rabbit out of a hat sort of thing) I got a notecard that said to get a magic cape and I did. Then I decided to make a whole outfit to go along with it. I kept finding odd pieces of material and felt just like I was making a quilt.

Then I thought - well let me put my glow ball on my head. I made a glow ball so I would look like I was in an Italian painting. I was not sure why I made it but it seemed to go with this.

Well I was very happy with my clothes although some people on the internet may just say "Hey Rammy, you look like a goof ball!". Well I guess when we go through life if you were always worried about being a goof ball then we would never do anything and just become fat slobs who sat around watching TV all day.

Isn't the idea of fashion really strange? We put these pieces of cloth on us and it is sort of a way of expressing who we are. It is like we are always covering up or something and people never really see who we really are.

I felt so bad when I was sick I started talking to Franz about stuff that was very depressing for some reason. When I felt better I was so sorry I sounded morose. I guess when you get sort of ill your mind will go to strange places. I hope I can send good energy to all my friends - so hear it comes - if you are reading this right now - here comes - buzz - buzz -buzz - a great big positive vibe.

Not Feeling Well in RL

Hello blog readers. I took this picture of Rickie, Franz, Quag, and me sitting at a bar. It looks like we must have had 3 or 4 of those blender drinks! I don't know who did the sitting animations for these bar stools but they certainly put us in odd positions. I am not feeling well in RL and think I better try to rest. I have a really bad cold and it is making me feel sore in the joints, throat, nose, lungs and so on. I hate to be sick. I don't think it is pneumonia, but it may be old monia.

Well last week my friend Rico came back in world and I am glad he is back. If I didn't feel so &#@! miserable I would like to write more. Sorry I can't say much. To all my friends - hello and please have a fun!

Blogs are Diaries Upside Down

Blogs are really funny. When you write in a diary it is secret and you lock it up with a key. But a blog is a diary but you put it out for the whole world to read. It is very strange. Yesterday Franz, Quagmire and I visited Leigh Eel. I took a few pictures and this one, that looks just like an Alfred Hitchcock movie, was the best. We were in Leigh's windmill that he built.

Well some people start blogs and then stop writing after a while. I don't have anything to say today, but I knew a blog post was inside of me somehow. Then I thought that maybe this post is about introducing friends to other friends. Sometimes when you do that you get nervous that one set of friends may not like the other or something like that. But I think it is good to keep generating friends. I just hope my friends list does not explode and cause Linden Labs to catch on fire due to large numbers!

Earlier this week I went to a funeral for Niambraa Lykin in SL. It was a strange idea to have a SL funeral and I am not sure how I feel about the idea. But it was a nice funeral. Here is a picture.

Tamra Sands Live

Saturday started really good. First I met Leigh Eel and Ricardito Castaignede at a drumming circle. They introduced me to a new friend, GeraldWay Destiny. If you don't know what a drumming circle is, I always think of it as a way to make your brain put you in a new place. First everyone goes to a drum and starts drumming and drumming and drumming. You get the idea. Then before you know it your mind starts to make you feel things that you would not normally feel and start to think and say things that are different from what you would normally think and say.

But later that night we heard a live performance, and I want to tell you about that. When I say live I mean live. Tamra Sands (RL link) actually sang to us and Trip Potvin played a live piano. Trip had some visibility problems but he was there in spirit, that's why you don't see him in this picture. Phantoms don't photograph well.
Tamra has a very good voice, I could hear it clearly with my little ears. It was both rich and sweet at the same time if that makes any sense.

I think everyone should try to get to hear a live SL performance, I think if you search for Broadway Live you should find some good places to start.

Anyway there is something very magical about live performances. When you watch a movie you may get into it but it is always watched. But when someone does something live, you are really there participating in a sense. You can feel the energy of the human who is performing. It almost is like riding a roller coaster, sky diving, and skiing at the same time. I don't know a lot about theater, so I can't say a lot of intelligent stuff, so sorry if my descriptions sound goofy.

Art at Verlaine by Leigh Eel

What a mess tonight started out as! People I know were very upset about stuff. I won't go into details - but I will say that I hope they don't stay unhappy because life is short and I don't like people to be unhappy.
Then I decided to wander around and look at art. I went back to see Leigh Eel's show at Verlaine to get a better understanding of his work. I would recommend a visit if you are able to spend the time to look deeply into it.

What you need to do is stand in front of each work and zoom in. That way you can see all the details. The drawings are mysterious so I read each note card to see if I could understand more. I decided artists' explanations of their work are only good for raising even more questions, so don't look to note cards for answers but look to them to embellish the mystery and provoke even deeper pondering.

All of these are very personal drawings and it is just like looking at someone's private notebook. I think that is one of the things I like about them. Sometimes when you look at art it looks like a lot of wowie zowie sort of stuff. Don't get me wrong - wowie zowie is fun too - but it is good to see the insides of people who are willing to share it.

So I hope all who can will take a look at this before it leaves.

Someone I Should Talk About

Last night I saw Dougg Eebus and we talked and talked. Let me tell you about Dougg.
Well dear readers, I took a picture but it came out sort of bad, you can't really see Dougg too well - so I will take another picture later to show him to you.

Anyway Dougg likes to look like a small cat, so Franz named him the kitty. Well sometimes I call him Kitty as a nickname. Some people in SL are 7 or 8 feet tall but Kitty likes to be small because that is the character he likes to be.

At first I though he was bored with me because he is so quiet but then I learned that is just part of his nature. I think everyone has something to say and offer, and it is deep inside of them. That is one thing that I have tried to learn.

Strange Soup of the Brain

Yesterday I went over to Ricardito's Blue Fairy House and talked to Rico for a while. He had on a weird getup - he looked like something from Anatomy 101 or a late night horror movie. It was really yukky looking if you ask me. He and I talked and he used my picture to test out a script he was writing. He has a lot of exciting things out of this world going on now - I am using my magic thought powers (9 volt battery of positive energy) to hope good things will happen to him.

Then I saw Franz. He had been on a long time and I thought it would be good if he slowed down so I suggested we lay in the hammock. It all makes me think about the stuff in my brain about people. Even though people here are just made by a computer, we each have unique personalities. I guess I can't explain it. We all know we are kind of playing but we also know we are real and can have hurt feelings and all that. All of my friends have a little different personality too that is underneath their images they are made of.

Then I started thinking about what people like to do in SL. Some people like to make money, and I guess that's OK but I just think it's cool to do stuff without trying to make money. I think when you think about money all the time you can get sort of sick. But I guess I don't know all the answers in life, so I just work on the things that are sensible to me. That is enjoy your friends as best you can because it will make you feel good.

The Power of Friends of Friends

Well I have not been in SL for a while and went back today. The last thing I was wearing before I left was a cat suit, I had white skin, tail and ears. I left sort of fast and did not have time to change. Quagmire Juran gave me a friend card but I did not have time to talk too much to him. I sort of was worried he may think I was rude or something so when I arrived I called him to talk to him.

It is so strange to make friends. When you first met people it is very exciting. As you talk more you wonder "What does this person think of me?" and "I hope this person does not become mean or anything" and so on. You may think that you can not have friends in a world where you can just type but I don't think that is true. I think that as you get to know people you can see their souls or spirit or something. Sometimes I have dreams of the people I meet in SL. That sounds like I must be some sort of wacko or something - but I swear it is true - I do dream about my friends.
Well I don't know Quag very well at this point so as time goes by maybe I will more and he of me.

Now I must change the subject to an important topic. I like to try on clothes some time and in fact I crashed from changing my clothes too fast. Anyway - this will sound stupid - but I think it is really important to be sure one's butt looks really good in what they wear. So I tried on some swimming trunks and zoomed around to check out my butt. I think these trunks make my butt look pretty cute. Well I know a lot of people do the same thing. It is important to have a cute butt because you never know who may be looking.

Well aside from all of this I hope to write more on different subjects - some about my friends and maybe some about clothes, art, sculpture, relationships, decorating, and so on. And maybe about how we all check out our hot butts from time to time.

To All My Friends

Well I haven't written too much the past week and hope to do better soon. But I just want to send a message to all my friends that I must be away for a while but hope to be back soon. Everybody stay safe, healthy and happy!

Mathmatics and Wings

Last night I was playing around with building objects that had light in them. I made some "glow balls" that were invisible but would have light coming from them. I was so tired and sleepy that I fell asleep at the key board and when my face hit the keys I said "aieaofhgkeaf". Fortunately no one was nearby to hear this.

Anyway tonight I was wondering around by myself. I was feeling very lonely. I took a picture of myself laying in a pose ball bed but as you will notice there is no one as the "other" pose ball. I just had to lay there by myself. I told myself not to IM people all the time since I didn't want to be an IMing pest or anything. I did IM Franz but he was busy. Fortunately Ricardito called and I was glad.

I went over to Ric's sky house and was showing him some green skin I made while he showed me some skin he had to match his wings. Then when I was showing him some glow hair he said I should try it a different way. Stupid me clicked on my rainbow wings and ended up messing them up. I was so upset I felt like crying, I really liked those wings and now they were ruined. But Ric said it is just like math, just a matter of getting the math right. Then he went off.

It turned out Rico was right, I did get my wings back after working with them. So dear readers the lesson here is when you want to get things back in order when stuff gets messed up, don't panic and to keep a cool head.

Cewlers and Wowers

I wanted to get this in before I had to leave for a few days. Leigh Eel was not busy last night so we went to the moon as you can see. I forgot to write down the name of this place in case you want to visit - but I will put it in when I get back.

We talked about building things with light shining around such as a flashlight. That got me to thinking about building something that has the property of light being given off but the texture is clear so you don't see it. I am not sure how it will look - but it may make a wild sculpture. It is good to think of ideas even though my objects probably are not as cool as others. I think when you start doing something it always looks sort of goofy at first but the best thing is just to try things and see if they work.

Now you are probably wonder what cewlers and wowers are. When we were looking around last night there were two people who were walking around but we could not see them, however they were close enough to hear them. We tried to find them. They were not talking in long sentences, they were just saying "cool" and "wow". Leigh said "Let's see if we can locate the cewlers and wowers". However when we found them they did not say hello back to us. I guess they were too wrapped up in what they were looking at or something.

Talking With Franz

I was glad I got a chance to talk to Franz last night because I was worried he was depressed. I don't think that just by talking to me someone could magically get UN-depressed or anything but I think when you talk to people it can help some.

One thing I always notice is that people who are real good at creating things can have many swings of mood and emotion. I don't know why but I guess that is just the way it is.

Franz and I sat on some rocks looking at a really nice splashy ocean. The waves would hit the rocks and explode into a relaxing mist. The sound was quite calming. I hope Franz feels better soon.

My Dinner With Andrej

Well I had not talked to Andrej for a while but did the other night. I am calling this My Dinner With Andrej after that movie where those two guys just sat at dinner and talked. Actually Andrej and I did not eat dinner but that would really wreck up a good blog title. I told him some of the stuff I had been up to and he had some that he had been up to.

I met Andrej at this crazy American High School - but since I dropped out I will not mention the name. It was fun to be there for the first time but I kept getting confused at the classes. Everybody talked all the time and you could not really understand what was going on. I don't think I really like High Schools, at least the American style.

What I liked to do at this school was to swim naked in the pool, but I think some of the students were sort of freaked out about that. Andrej used to be on the gymnastics team at the school and he had a uniform and everything.

Well the last thing I am going to say about American schools is that I keep thinking that there must be something not right in the U.S. if this is what schools are like. It is almost like throwing all the students into a big machine and chewing them up.

Exotic Dancing

Last Saturday Franz asked me to fill in at the last minute to be an exotic dancer. I got to wear a tiny thong (that is where people stuff dollar bills) and dance around a pole. If you think about it, it is sort of a crazy thing to do but I figured you should try to do different things. Well Dear Readers it was fun but I am not sure it is really who I am. I didn't take any pictures to show you either.

Tarot Sculpture of Madcow Cosmos

I can look at tarot cards all day and keep wondering about all their meanings. There are so many ways to interpret what they could mean. Today I saw a whole deck in the form of sculptures. I think I will go back and walk around again. These sculptures by Madcow Cosmos have many details to look at. The whole thing blew my mind, and I can't believe how much work it must have taken to build the whole set. You can go there this way. I liked the work so much that I had to put it in my blog so people would not miss it.

I really like to write about art and creative stuff that I see and I think a lot of people would enjoy it too. I thought maybe I should be an art critic. I am not sure I am smart enough to be an art critic though. I figured I should go to the library and look at all those fancy art magazines so I can see how it is done. I read the reviews about shows at galleries and then the oddest thing would happen. Right after I read an article I would turn the page and there was a big full page advertisement for that artist at that gallery. I guess it was just a coincidence.

Ricardito Castaignede's Waste Dump

Last night Ricardito showed me the finishing touches on the toxic waste dump to go a along with the new musical The Toxic Avenger. It is located near the theater (which is in Broadway Live South) - sort of near the side. Just go past the yellow ribbons and barricades. Here is how to get there.

Don't forget to turn on the midnight look - that makes it look real creepy.
Ric and I talked for a while. I took a nice picture I was going to use but I must have not had film in my camera or something because I could not find the picture today. What a bummer. Ric must like to go fishing a lot. He said to be sure and mention what a nice cod piece he has.
Oh well - more later.

Big Cruise Ship

People sure do like to build things that remind them of things they like in RL. Yesterday I was at a dance for an art exhibit on a cruise ship. I took a picture of Franz and I talking on a deck so you can see how big it is. At the dance I asked people who may have known more about the ship if this was the Titantic but they laughed and said no. But I am so embarrassed - I forgot to take my reporter's notebook and forgot to write down all the important stuff. I forgot to even write down the name of the artist, I think her name was Gracie something. Well I will just have to go back to get the facts.

Since I started this blog I find that I like to write about things people do and build and behave. And I like to write about the stuff people make up in their head and then make it exhist so other people can look at it. It is so cool to just walk up to artists and talk to them. Sometimes artists are famous but I think a lot of them tell you stuff about what they did if you just walk up to them and start asking.

Well I have learned a lesson Dear Readers, from now on I am going to try to take notes better. Well let me close now and send my best wishes to all.

Sunday, July 6, 2008


I got a very strange note card message yesterday, it said that someone on my friend's list had committed suicide. I am not sure what to think. The note card said it was from her sister who had logged on to her account to send out the message. My friend Franz knew her much better than I and was understandably quite upset.

I just don't know what to make of this. Is it real? I can not imagine someone staging this in this way, so I am thinking it is real. But then I am not sure. I hope it is not real, just a bad choice of a way to leave the world.

The only good that has come of this is seeing that Franz must have some good friends in Mikal Mikoyan, Jojo Mandel, Kyne Tigerpaw, and JC. I guess humans were made to connect with each other deep down inside.

Real Real Artists Doing Cool Things

Well Dear Readers I had a bad problem computer earlier this week and did not get to visit SL on the day before yesterday. I had to play computer doctor, but the patient lived. Yesterday Ricardito invited me to an artist place and I was real glad I went.

I like artists because they make stuff that you can look at but will also make things happen in your head. I don't know if you are supposed to say that because that doesn't sound like real art talk that you would say when you visit a museum or something. I hope people don't laugh at me when I try to write about art.

This group is called the Rezzable group I think. (I hope I got that right) I will have to write more and go back again. Last night I had dreams about the big tower like thing that I flew up into. It made me feel like a baby being born or something. I took a picture of me traveling in a bubble transporter.

Then Ricardito took me to where the Greenies live. Here is where it is.
The greenies must live in a house and must run around like mice. When you go into the house you go through a mouse hole, then you realize you are in a doll house. Suddenly you are in a GIANT house OR you are VERY SMALL. It feels just like Alice in Wonderland or something.

Well there is so much that I must write about but I will have to save it for later.

A Toxic Advenger Musical Catches My Interest

Yesterday started out sort of normal, Franz, Tree Ahat and I went shopping. Tree wanted to find a new shape and maybe a different look. Somehow we all got lost so I am not sure what Tree finally came up with.

Then I called to say hello to Ricardito Castaignede and he invited me to see what he has been working on. That's a picture of him (blue) and me in a very urban world he built. Now I should talk a bit about Ricardito. He is a blue faery sometimes. He has a really good eye for cool psychedelic colors and shapes and makes things that are very wild to experience. I have only met him recently but he is a lot of fun to talk with.

Ric (I hope he doesn't mind my shortening his name) has been working on a project to support a new Broadway play based on the B movie The Toxic Advenger. I never saw that cinematic gem but it sounds like a cool idea for a musical, why not? I will provide more info dear readers, as soon as I get it so you can visit the sim.

Magic Sky House Idea

I have in my head an idea to build a magic sky house. I'm not sure what a magic sky house actually is except it is 1) in the sky and 2) not like a house in RL therefore a magic house. Yesterday someone named Aarun Carter (see picture) called me and invited me to a platform in the sky. It was sort of empty but looked like one of those plays you see where the actors don't have any set or backdrop and you have to use your imagination.

I meet people who have houses that look like their dream house in RL and some that have a sort of ancient or medieval theme. I would think it would be hard to be perfectly historically correct all the time. But now that I think about it, it would be hard to be perfectly realistic as well.

Well I am so lazy sometimes I don't know if I will build my magic sky house anytime soon, but I'll think about it more. I think I will make in sort of a house from the future and a fantastic past at the same time.

My Friend Franziskus

Now I should say something about my friends in SL. One of the first people I met was Franziskus Ninetails. We were both born about the same time and he told me many things about how to dress and use pose balls and so on. I showed him how I had learned to build buildings and he became very good at it, now he is probably much better than me. Sometimes he has different adventures from mine but we get together every now and then. We have done many things together - once we had a snowball fight, once we went inside a pyramid to look around. Sometimes we have done some things that were not rated G, if you know what I mean. He gets unhappy sometimes about things and I worry about people when they are unhappy. He has become a Neko tiger lately as you can see in this picture from this evening. Well I'll write more later.

Art Opening of Work by Leigh Eel

I recieved an invitation to an art opening from Leigh Eel the other day. It turned out to be a great show and I highly recommend it.

It is located in the Verlaine Cultural Center in Chilipepper (29,162, 23). In the downstairs gallery is BilliArt Burnham - very engaging photography.

Leigh's work is upstairs - ink drawings that you can look at for a long time and study. Drawing is so direct - unlike painting, photography, and so on - you just think it and then you do it. I had a great time.
Well I wanted to put this in my blog. I have so much more to say about other things and hope to get them in here soon.

Hawk Boy Plays Piano

For some reason I have been wearing hawk wings and wanting to fly a lot. Other days I like to turn in to a Neko Boy. I think neko means cat in Japanese. I think humans like to make themselves in to half human forms and have been doing it in all cultures since ancient times.

I read some thing about a group called the Radical Faeries - sort of a gay hippie pagan group. That got me interested in being a fairy (or faerie). In my faerie persona I try to be a healing helpful faerie, not too mischievous. I made some green skin but I am not sure I like to wear it – it makes me look kind of sick.

Last night I wondered around and went to a place called Chiaroscuro. It has some great sky houses that are good for meditation. I was hoping maybe I would meet people and maybe make friends since it seemed like a place that had the same state of mind I had at the time. But no one was there at the time. I saw a grand piano and started playing. I hope the owner doesn't mind my doing that, I really wish I could play like that in RL.

Later I went club dancing. Dancing is fun but it gets confusing trying to chat sometimes. After a while I think I get tired and need to rest.

My Crazy Life

Well if you are reading this I guess you have either met me or are wondering who I am. I was born in the last part of 2007 and have learned a whole lot in that time. When I was first created I looked very goofy with a helmet head hair style and no skin definition. Now I am looking more like the person I really am - not a super macho muscle guy who is 7 feet tall - but an average looking guy who likes to have fun and make friends. Don't get me wrong - I am very open minded about enjoying my body - and am certainly not uptight about it. But I like having friends to talk with.

Well I have so many things that I would like to say that I thought it would be good to start recording them so when people met me they could learn more than you can learn in a chat dialog. I am going to try to document my adventures and hope to be honest about my good and bad so blog readers can know who I am. When I I tell about the people I meet I am going to try to never be bad or mean - because I really don't ever want to be mean to anyone. Well enough for a first post.
