Boi Ach by Mourna

Mourna, queen of the super-hot kilt look, dressed me up today. She suggested a kilt and a vest with nothin' underneath, so I absolutely took her at her word. I think boy Ach looks like a Louisiana swamp goth straight out of Ann Rice here. Thanks for the suggestion, Mourna!

[Research]

Late last night, up because of my daughter, Allegory and I stared at some poseballs that I was trying to make for my stone circle. Poseballs come in three parts -- the physical ball, the script that makes it do stuff, and the animation. I decided to use some AO animations, and Allegory provided a script that would make it work. For some reason, the script made my SL body leap into the air when I typed! This looked unnatural, so we spent a sleepy hour poking at it.

I contemplated what I was trying to do. I was trying to create realistic-looking ways to sit around my stone circle garden, ways that didn't break the laws of real-world physics. The stone circle is a cross between a public and a private space -- unlike houses, it doesn't keep people out by a facade or a roof. However, I find that I am protective of the space anyway. I want people to wander through, but not if they aren't respectful of the space I'm trying to build...

Perhaps there's a literacy of space and physics that I'm attempting to touch upon here. I want the space to 'read' in a certain way that invites people, but only if they choose to sit, walk, and think in a respectful way. To me, this means shadowy trees, realistic meditation poses, and a place to sit and contemplate the water. But I'm not sure that my 'writing' can get through. We'll see if it does!

[End research bit]

In other news, I have a larged winged thing sitting in my skybox right now, crying about the lack of good MMORPGs now that he's maxed out his levels in WoW.
