Third Anniversary Thoughts

Fri, 23 Jun 2006 17:40:18 -0700

Well it's been a crazy day with an event interrupted repeatedly by protests and problems. We forgot to turn off rez/scripts in the stage where I spoke, and also couldn't get the audio stream to work, oops! Nevertheless, I am...

Deeper Beauty

Sun, 17 Apr 2005 21:42:58 -0700

I was asked to judge (along with our own Jeska Linden) a beauty pageant on thursday night. The first place winner, for the 'talent' part of the program, rezzed a huge hot dog with mustard and flew it around the...
