Wizard’s Mathematical Obsession in Second Life

CTRL+Shift+R (moderate)

Wizard Gynoid, that genius of geometry, master of math, virtuoso of virtual construct, is opening her latest advanced lesson in the art of points, lines, angles, surfaces and solids.

This enormous 3D Wireframe Grid – the Isotropic Grid – extends in all directions to Infinity. Find the elevators on the ground that go up and down thru the whole structure.

She’s having an opening party from noon til 2:00 SLT today, July 27, with DJ Jim Tarber. You don’t have to love math – just be amazed at what somebody can do with it!

LEA Grants, a Move & Lists in Second Life

Imagination on Guana Cay (moderate)

If you go visit the current incarnation of Imagination on Guana Cay you might be shocked to see the note that it’s closing on July 27th. Don’t panic! She’s moving to a sim called Dark Bay and the new build is under construction.

I’ll get over there when it’s open for visitors and see what she’s up to.

The Linden Endowment for the Arts has announced the latest round of Artist in Residence Grants and the next group of grants for Core sims will be coming soon. Remember you can apply for the latter at any time.

Most of the 20 AIR installations will remain open until the end of this month. Go to the Welcome Area on LEA3 and you’ll see giant posters which will give you teleports to some very cool immersive exhibits.

I’ve mentioned my lists before, all those things I want to get done. Some are short-term urgent, some are important but not as high a priority.

Livio reminded me that one thing on my list is to calibrate my monitors. This became apparent to me when I set up the second one – they aren’t the same. I’m moving calibration higher on the things I’ll get done even though it means navigating more techie stuff. He’s right though – knowing that object really is red (for example) would be valuable. :)

I’ll go tackle the urgent things – I hate the guilt if I get too far behind.

You should check out the current build on Guana Cay and make a note to visit her new sim once it’s opened. I’ll start an additional list of landmarks I have to change …………..

Delicatessen in Second Life & (yes) Tea Towels

Delicatessen (moderate)

One of the regions I have to check regularly is Delicatessen, the home base for Meilo Minotaur and Capcat Ragu. I revisit this location fairly often and not only because I admire them as artists.

Remember, I’m an avatar junkie and their Meta-Body project has resulted in dozens of amazing creations – all of which are freely available to us. Teleport around (you’ll find the controls in one of the strange objects at sea level, along with some cool options in a big tree) to find a vast array of odd things and beautiful beings.

On one of the platforms you’re told to “follow the teapot”. This reminded me of a story I was going to tell you – because, real life can be just as strange and mysterious as the virtual.

Let’s consider tea towels for a moment. I know there are people (I’ve met one) who not only have a drawer full of them, but they place the newly laundered ones at the bottom of the pile so they all get used equitably. I don’t.

This means that when I’m reaching the bottom of the drawer, trying to find a towel to use, something is not right. When the drawer is completely empty I know there’s a serious problem here.

I mean, come on, they’re tea towels. They don’t just walk off and people don’t steal that kind of thing.

So I do the logical thing. I ask my 93 year old mother if she’s seen the tea towels. “No”, she says. “I was going to ask you where they all went.”

I ask, “Well, is it possible they’ve wound up in your bedroom with your laundry?” “Don’t be ridiculous!” she replies. “I don’t have them!”

I waited until she was outside on the patio and went searching. I found tea towels under her bed, tea towels in her sock drawer, and tea towels laid out carefully on her chairs.

I told her what I’d found and she said “Oh, well I need those.” When asked why, she explained that she puts them on her chair so that after her shower the seat won’t get wet.

I pointed out that she has a huge basket full of bath towels, hand towels, and wash cloths, and could use some of them. Apparently she doesn’t want to get them dirty. sigh

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need more coffee. I have to count the spoons again – something is happening in the cutlery drawer.
