Haiku Speedbuild-14Feb08

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

2nd Place- Sunn Thunders

1st Place- Alizarin Goldflake

Runners up (no pictures this week– perhaps if you IM them in-world they’d be willing to show you… )-

Peli Dieterle

Ransom Silverspar

Rose Farina

See you on the 21st!


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- 17Jan08

January 17, 2008

This week’s Haiku Speedbuild was a blast, as usual! Excellent poetry, enthusiastic spectators and creative builders make this and every other build a huge success!

This week’s theme haiku:

Behold the ego
Set in glowing emptiness
On the edge of time

1st Place – Dale Innis

2nd Place – Spaceman Opus

3rd Place – Gwenette Writer

Runner Up – Rose Farina

Be sure to join us next week for the next exciting installment of our weekly Haiku Speedbuilds! Until then, you can see the builder’s sculptures on display at Blekinge Sculpture Park (which is highly recommended, because of moving parts and whatnot!).

Gonna keep it short and sweet tonight, cuz my tummy is not feeling well. Blerg.

the carnivorous plants

behind glass

-Jeanne Harrington

Can’t wait for next week, when I’m feeling well enough to actually write about the event…


Haiku Speedbuild- 03Jan08

January 4, 2008

The VAA’s weekly Haiku Speedbuild made a spectacular debut last night with awesome results! The turnout was higher than we expected and we even got a band of extremely supportive (and delightfully strange) spectators to cheer our builders on 😀

From left to right, top to bottom: Photozz Alter, Cyanide Seelowe, Alizarin Goldflake, Thadicus Caligari, Spaceman Opus and Yummie Olsen cheer on the builders with cephalopodic enthusiasm.

The theme haiku for this week was:

The potter’s hands

Gently shape the vase

Out of himself.

-Frederick Gasser

Here are the results:

1st Place- Rose Farina

2nd Place- three-way tie between AJ Sporleder, Jeanni Nishi and Sunn Thunders

3rd Place- Dale Innis

If you have yet to watch or participate in a Haiku Speedbuild, believe me, you’re missing out on a good time! Join us next week, January 10th at 6PM SLT to see what all the (semi-) hype is about! Until then, you can go to the VAA contest area in Blekinge Sculpture Park to view Rose Farina’s 1st Place sculpture in person!
