I had a press release from Razi Semple of the Ministry of Motion the other day, and it is about a competition they are running there, which is just too good to miss. When I read the prize money, I had to do a double take and look again, just to make sure I was reading right, the prize is 100,000 Lindens, which will be won by one customer on the 31st October 2009, the second and third prizes are fabulous too, with dance animations etc. I’d met sim owner Nomasha Syaka a few months ago when I did an article about him, as he creates amazing Mocap dance animations and makes these fantastic guitars that you can play your own music on in SL. So go over and see his sim anyway, it’s a great place to visit. The competition is being run by the Ministry of Motion and Second Style Magazine, you can find out more about how to enter in Our Virtual Trilogy blog.

When I’d visited the Ministry of Motion sim a couple of weeks ago, I didn’t tell my friends about something that was a little bit shocking but quite funny at the time. I’d taken Hibiscus over there and she thought it was a laugh, then I took Drax over and asked him to sit on the giant apple and see what happens. Soon as he sat, he started to topple through the air and fell into the giant kitchen blender that was there. It’s quite a gory sight all the blood spurts out of the blender and you can see your avatars arms and legs disappearing!
He landed safely back next to me on the platform, but his arms and legs and three hearts (yes three!!) landed all around him and other bits and pieces of grisly looking meat too!
This is all the invention of Nomasha Syaka and very cleverly done!! All in one piece, Drax later came over to my apartment in SL Chelsea as he hadn’t seen some of the changes I had made for a while. I got a lovely painting from an artist who was selling his stuff in the Rose Theatre, his pictures are moving works of art and little stars twinkle on it and vapour rises from the sphere in front of the girl in the picture, I’m glad I bought it, I really like it and Drax did too. I logged off and came back later.
It was the opening of the Jazz club in SL Chelsea last night and real life held me up from getting there for a while. I arrived to see Hibiscus, Ed and Drax all on line and as I rezzed I saw Hib and Ed log off at the same time, then going over to the Jazz club I spotted Drax at the piano there.
He was plainly away from the keyboard of his computer, so I went and sat on the stall too to wait for him to come back and chat, but alas he never did, he just timed out and I was left all alone, my friends deserting me, are they trying to tell me something? Perhaps I put too many of them through the blender!!!
