My esteemed co-founder of the Virtual Artist Alliance, Rezago Kokorin, was kind enough to share this “bit of inspired insanity”. As such, I would like to share it with all of you. Thanks Rez!

Well, Oyster Bay’s Final Shindig is well under way and will hopefully go off without a hitch.

Sadly, though, I got a pleading call from my boss last night at 10PM– she asked if I could work late into Tuesday’s second shift, which happens to be right when the shindig will be happening. I had to say yes, because… well, I’m sure everyone will understand.

Fortunately for me, there were a few individuals who were eager to help out with the shindig, so it’s still in capable hands! Thanks to Isolde Flamand, Rezago Kokorin and Welcome Doobie for saving my ass and finishing what I started 😀 I’ll be expecting pictures!

February 18, 2008

Yeah, this archive is a little late, and the pictures are of poor quality (immense apologies to the artists… but you should go and see them in person anyway!)– I’ve had a terribly busy week thanks to RL and I lost my original pictures of the event because of the most recent Linux Windlight update… but better late than never! 😀

This week’s theme haiku:

Drifting errantly
The solar winds of our souls
Bring us together


3rd Place- Welcome Doobie

See you on the 21st!


Haiku Speedbuild- 07Feb08

February 7, 2008

Lately, we’ve not only been getting a slew of fantastic builders come to participate in the Haiku Speedbuilds– we’ve also been getting excellent spectators as well! Lately it seems that we get at least one spectator who’s got an awesome hat to share (you may remember the school of cephalopods that came to cheer on our builders during the first speedbuild). Many thanks to Tripster Lowe, who shared his awesome “Aztek Snow Cap” with anyone who asked!

This week’s haiku:

The flap of a bat
Drip drop of monsoon waters
Ancient image stares

-Phil Wahl

3rd Place- Sunn Thunders

2nd Place- Welcome Doobie

1st Place- Synn Mounier

Runners Up-  Ipenda Keynes, Jeanni Nishi, Peli Dieterle


As always, the builds will be on display at Blekinge Sculpture Park until next weeks event. Hope to see you there!


Haiku Speedbuild- 31Jan08

February 1, 2008

Record attendance today with five builders and a fluctuation of spectators that ranged anywhere from four to eight people at any given time! I’m very glad to see that the word is getting around 😀 Unfortunately, we had to deal with the rolling restart today, so the region restarted right in the middle of the build… fortunately, we picked up where we left off almost seamlessly and finished the build without a hitch!

Theme haiku:

Unseen influences
Dream the world into being
Mandala of stars.
~Yvonne Aburrow

3rd Place- Rose Farina

2nd Place- Jeanni Nishi

1st Place- Sunn Thunders

Runners Up- Peli Dieterle and Welcome Doobie

All builds will be available for viewing until next week’s event– hope to see you there!


Haiku Speedbuild – 25January08

January 25, 2008

Despite a sim crash mere minutes into the contest this evening, this week’s Haiku Speedbuild yielded some of the most impressive results I’ve seen yet! We’re starting to see a mix of regulars and newbies show up, so I’m glad to see that the word is getting out there and that the event is worth coming back to! We’ve even employed the use of a countdown clock and a voting board so the whole process is more efficient for the contestants and voters. Hooray!

Theme haiku for this week:

What remains unseen
When you break the whole to bits
Are the holes between

-Yvonne Aburrow

3rd Place – Peri Afarensis

2nd Place – Welcome Doobie

1st Place – Jeanni Nishi

Runner-up – Spaceman Opus

These sculptures will be on display all through the week at Blekinge Sculpture Park. You are even MORE strongly encouraged to attend this week because of the interactive nature of Jeanni Nishi’s sculpture– put on her flexi things and go for a spin!
