Weeping For The Future

I recently received a short missive from my errant brother, Cardinal, which I shall reproduce in its entirety here.


div style="border:1px solid #999; padding: 1em;"> Dear Sister,

I am not ashamed to admit that I have been of very downhearted humour recently, after receiving the news of the latest piece of oppressive Linden Laboratory legislation.

Bedlam Illustrated

As mentioned in the Comments upon my previous entry regarding the excellent Slouching Towards Bedlam, paintings were composed to illustrate it by Sandara - two of which may be seen here, reproduced with kind permission:

<img src='http://ordinalmalaprop.com/engine-old/wp-content/uploads/2007/08/bedlam1.thumbnail.jpg' alt='Slouching Towards Bedlam 1'

Informing, Bedlam

Seventy-Seven Million Paintings

As a very tardy note of something that I should have mentioned earlier: the Second Life premiere of the exhibition of 77 Million Paintings by Mr Brian Eno is occurring this weekend, and will not be reoccurring as far as I am aware after the end of today.

Locations and links may be found at the special page on blueair.tv. I have been visiting the installations myself and would say that they are certainly worth visiting, if you see this in time.

Gumballs and Telescopes

I'm sorry to anyone who is getting bored of my cinematography, but I have such fun making these things, even if they are rubbish. The latest efforts are views of two things from Burning Life. Ms Rebekka Ruff told me about the Steam Powered Gumball Factory and clearly I had to visit that - but on the way I also noticed Jillian Callahan's telescope, and felt that that deserved a piece as well.

Expand your Dimensions

If you have not already done so, I Highly Recommend that you read Hamlet Au's piece on Seifert Surface's "crooked house". This very much falls into the category of "I wish I'd thought of that" - Mr Surface has created an experiential model of a four-dimensional cube (a tesseract) in the three dimensions of Second Life, by means of some trickery. One can walk through a building in a straight line and return to one's starting point.

Watch the video first and see if you can work out how that could be done.

Amazement and Towers

One thing that always amazes me that anyone has ever heard of me in Second Life at all. I fear that I shall never get over the idea that anyone might remember my name or, for that matter, know it without me having met them or annoyed them in some way.
