Alright, alright…

July 5, 2008

It is time to move on. But first, allow me to make a couple of announcements in regards to the ballet:

email and chat logs make very clear that you did the work for the ballet in a cooperative and open fashion, just as we all do our work for the ballet. at the time, the work was done for the ballet and for the use of the ballet, with no conditions.

then, many months later, you get a hair up your butt and start to assert copyright, send flaky email, etc. such things are best ignored, why feed a troll.

but, what you say in your blog is libel. if i were you, i would think about that a bit, and get off your high horse before it throws you.

Espresso has always been a big man, you see, very quick to make mountains out of molehills and issue threats where they’re not needed. But I digress– his brash remarks, ill-informed as they may be (I don’t think he took the time to look up the definition of libel before writing that comment) made me reconsider my stance on the whole ordeal.

There’s no need to take any of them to court for a number of reasons. The time, the hassle, the money– Inarra simply is not worth the trouble. I never wanted money of any from them in the first place (it was not mentioned anywhere in the agreement I asked Inarra to sign) so taking them to court would be moot.

So, to drive home my point, and to dismount from my “high horse”, pull the “hair out of my butt” and stop being a “troll”, I have decided to release the images that I created for the Second Life Ballet into Creative Commons so that they (and anyone else in the art community) can use them as much as they want for non-profit purposes. It’s exactly like the agreement I offered SLB, except now they don’t have exclusive usage of my artworks.

You can find the works with the CC licenses at my DeviantART gallery.

I think that solves things nicely. On to bigger things!

Shit shit shit…

April 10, 2008

God fucking dammit… I missed Photohunt tonight. What an awesome host I am :\

I’ve had to play some serious catch up at school because of my surgery, so I apologize to everyone who participates in Photohunt– I was consumed in homework! We will resume next week, hopefully with no memory snags on my end… until then, keep snapping, and I look forward to seeing you all again real soon!

P.S. In light of my gall bladder removal, I would like to thank everyone for their support and well wishes– the road to recovery would be considerably lamer if I didn’t have so many friendly comments to keep me afloat! 🙂

Photohunt- 05March08

March 6, 2008

Sure sure, this blog is a day late… but you shouldn’t be too surprised by that 😀

This week’s Photohunt was so much fun! Welcome Doobie (currently the VAA’s only Photohunt moderator) chose Tesla City as this week’s theme location, which is packed full of interesting places to explore, and we nearly filled up all 15 entry boards!

Since Welcome Doobie and I alternate turns between holding down the fort and accompanying the Photohunters to the hunting grounds, I thought I would take a few pictures of my own to pass the time:

They’re not nearly as good as what the entrants came up with, but they were certainly fun to take! If you’d like to see the this week’s entries (as well as archives of all of the contests up to this point), be sure to drop by the Photohunt Gallery to have a look-see!

Photohunt comeback a success!

February 28, 2008

 

Those of you who know me will know that I measure success very loosely when it comes to events like this– if we get a small handful of people (say, three or four) and facilitate their ability to network and share knowledge with each other, then whatever event it is will have been a huge success in my mind.

Well, tonight’s Photohunt, our first that we opened to the public, successfully attracted  a total of fourteen people, contestants and spectators alike! And the snapshots that were taken were excellent, to boot!

You should totally check out the winners for this and last week’s Photohunt matches. Coming soon: a Photohunt gallery expansion to accomodate winners and Moderator picks. Stay tuned!
