Getting away from the noise in Kowloon.

The Back Story.

I decided to get away from it all in a far off land (far off to me, anyway). The shape drama on SL is getting craaaazy, peoples (see also Alicia Chenaux’s pithy “Stop it” piece). Am I sensing a ground swell of consumer revolt against the grump-face pony-rider shape? A final smack down before the demise of a fad?

Whatever it might be, remember folks, that these avatars we play around with are not our corporeal bodies. They aren’t even as materially substantive as a doll that you can hold in your hands, for that matter.

I just recalled an incident from when I was five years old. A neighbor boy made fun of the way one of my dollies looked, and I whacked him upside the head with a pointy metal thing. He had to get stitches. I got grounded. Over a damn doll.

Yeah. Dumb. But I was five and had skin about as thick as nanofilm.

The Back Story.

I hit one of those cart sales tonight. Mostly there’s a lot of flotsam and jetsam, but every now and then I run across something, and then something else, and then another little tidbit here and there, and before you know it, I’ve cobbled together a pretty nifty little ensemble. I like digging through a pile of stuff and just randomly trying things on to see what works, eventually turning out something acceptable. It’s joy.
