Gorgeous Scenery on Don’t Be a Dick Day in Second Life

L’Arc en Ciel (moderate)

I followed Bitacora Viajera to Asa Vordun’s beautiful sim, L’Arc en Ciel, this morning. These images focus on the bucolic aspect of the island, but there is much more.

Now, before anybody accuses me of going all photobitch on this landscape, I assure you I used the region default windlight. I suspect there’s pollution off in the distance and that this affects the cloud colour.

I was thinking about pollution, or at least polluted minds, as I did my chores today. It seems to me that one of the advantages to being older is that I won’t have to live with the consequences of all the stupidity being marched across the world stage these days.

I’m not talking about people blowing each other up – that’s all just too evil for words. Instead I was contemplating the idiots that have seem to have no hesitation in displaying their unqualified dick-headedness.

So, on this Don’t Be a Dick Day, allow me to share 3 recent examples of the type of person you don’t want to be … at least out in the open … where people can hear you.

If you’re a politician, and you want to be taken seriously, announcing that “women should not laugh in public” is self-defeating. They do vote you know.

In that same vein, if you’re somebody with a senior position in the local area Party organization, and you’re really hoping that your team will be re-elected, and you’re asked if you can have a candidate who beats up his girlfriend, don’t say “Well, why not?”. You won’t like the answers.

Finally, even if you’ve made a career out of being a dick, are known for your dickness, in fact have set the standard for idiocy in the dick area, saying that what a woman brings to marriage (more than anything else) is her “youth” and that this “is a fragile and diminishing resource” is pretty extreme.

Saying all that while sitting on a panel with 4 women puts you in the pantheon of the oblivious. I guess he’s been married 5 times because his wives keep losing their most “valuable asset”.

May you all enjoy a dick-free day. :)

Still Life with Furnishings in Second Life

Fuubutsu-dō (moderate)

Typically, when I go visit a sim, I’m attracted to/fascinated by the outdoors; the streets, building facades, and landscapes. This is almost invariably true for store locations.

I can’t show you any of that today. My camera refused to leave the display areas of Fuubutsu-dō.

I didn’t actually make it to the store. What I wandered into were tiny groups of wooden buildings with arrangements of furnishings, and other household items, that are available somewhere else on the island.

I wish I could show you everything I saw – you’ll just have to go experience the tea ceremony (among other things) yourself. I realized at one point that I had spent 30 minutes in just the sick room. Who would think that subject could look like art?

Fuubutsu-dō (moderate)

I’m going to go back and find that shop – there are pieces I really want to have. First I’ll have to finish exploring all those little structures though.

You can find her blog here, and check out her blog roll. There are some more gems on that list I plan to put on my itinerary!

Note: I stopped putting the large version of my images here because they took too long to load for many people. You can usually find the clearer full sized photos on my Koinup page.

Wizard’s Mathematical Obsession in Second Life

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!
