      I love that, the ‘The soup on the tables was still hot. Plates of petits-fours were virtually waiting to be eaten. We gorged. Could this really be called a walk?’ so fun, rMarie! Great read, ty. 🙂

      I know we’re admonished to be nice, but I’d like to submit some critical feedback. Off with your heads.

    Documenting Jane’s Walk

    I’m working on documentation of the Jane’s walks I led now.

    Unfortunately I was unable to join the walks led by rmarie or Pearl & Feels. Will you all be doing blog posts on your walks? I’d really appreciate it if you’d do a little something. A few words and images would be fantastic!

    Pearl & Feels:
    Forbidden City

    Hi, I am going to take a walk in Provence Coeur at 6pm SLT. Please join me as we stride around this nice 18th century French place. Revolutionary gear ok! Here’s to Jane.

      I’ve posted pics and will include more on a blog post soon. I was on the Forgotten City walk.

      I’ve just linked to my main blog post about the Forgotten City Walk in the above post here.

      There are 3 of my photos of the FC Walk and one of Marie’s walk in the MU Flickr group. (It’s the indoor one called ‘walking, tea and crumpets.) And like Pay said, she has pics there as well.

      While we did quite a bit of walking during Marie’s, my photos turned out to be more wildly bouncing around ones. I will see if I have any more and post them.

    Dead Artists’ Jane’s Walk Sunday 

    Thank you Feels Empty for reminding us all that today is Yves Klein’s birthday! What a great idea to have a “Dead Artists'” walk on Sunday!

    Medici University is such a vibrant place filled with so many living people, meetups, and collaborations. But we are also inspired by so many artistic spirits. From our Jane Jacobs inspired campus to the Barnett Newman Broken Obelisk sculpture not far from my own studio, to Yves Klein, to our very own Provost, and even me.

    Please join me in celebrating artistic spirits past and present this Sunday at 9am!

    Guy Fawkes Day @MU 

    photo of fireworks over parliament with the superimposed caption "Have a Blast! Guy Fawkes Day!"

    Yesterday my step-brother, enfant terrible, and MU Director of Facilities, Ryan Medici let out an early notice about the upcoming Guy Fawkes Day at MU.

    For anyone who may have been upset by the notice, I apologize. Let me remind you that this IS Medici University! No one ever has to do anything here!

    The Details

    Guy Fawkes Day is, of course, the fifth of November. Since there is no 5 November in Spring Semester, we’ve decided to do a “half-Guy Fawkes Day” and rotate it by 6 months to 5 May.

    • 1 May – Friday – Mayday Celebrations at MU
    • 1, 2, 3 May – Jane’s Walk 2015 – we’re so excited that for this 9th annual Jane’s Walk, MU will become the 1st ever Virtual City to participate in the global event!
    • 4 May – The Monday after Jane’s Walk weekend is Jane Jacobs’ actual birthday
    • 5 May – Tuesday is Guy Fawkes Day @MU

    It’s Always about Choice

    If you’ve familiar with the foundational ideas of MU, espoused around our websites, then you know that no one, not Ryan, or The Chaplain, or I, or anyone else is here to force anyone to do anything. If you want to pick a spot and never move, that’s great. If you want to make a lot of work in that spot, that’s great. If you want to rez a gallery and never come back, well, that’s not great, but it isn’t a violation of any rule since we don’t have any rules, other than be nice to each other, try to get along, be tolerant and inclusive, be supportive, look at each others work, blog about it, share links, and so on.

    Wow! That was a lot of rules for no rules! Basically we have no rules. Except for the golden rule: do unto others as you would have them do unto you. That’s it. It’s really that simple. Oh. And while not “required,” we do encourage working your ass off and doing amazing things!

    At times we might suggest things like Studio Roulette, and before you dismiss it out of hand, I’d urge you to really consider the possibilities, but it will always be your choice. Opt in. Opt out. Your judgement. The only thing that isn’t a choice is that come 1 July, we’ll all be gone and LEA23 will become someone else’s art project and it will look very different.

    Guy Fawkes Day

    Our 5 May Guy Fawkes Day celebration is indeed an optional Studio Roulette. When we get a little closer to that time, you’ll be able to very easily opt-in or opt-out of Studio-Roulette as you like. Even though MU is all about creativity, change, innovation, new ideas, new connections, new pathways, risk, trying different things, and so on, we all have a tendency to get comfortable and set in our ways. Even though we know we’re getting tossed out on 30 June, we still like to set up fortresses and protect them like they’ll never change. That certainly includes me. Ryan. All of us. Guy Fawkes Day / Studio Roulette is an optional invitation to nudge ourselves out of our comfort zones. An optional invitation to interact with different MU Learners. To see the campus from a different vantage point. To be closer to the center, or more out at the frontiers.

    Men are animals of the earth. They come from Papa, the earth mother, and make their homes on the land. They walk the ground, like Pig and Rat. Walking animals do not know the spirit of motion, as you do. Their world stands still for them, and their footsteps fall always against the steadiness of rock and soil. Winds blow and they crawl inside houses. The red floodwaters rise and they climb to dry caves and sleep poorly in the stale, cold air. What do they learn in these houses and caves? Stillness. Calm. They hope things will never change. Men hate change. But that is not the way things are. Light and darkness. The currents. Death. That is the order. When these men speak, their voices are little because nothing pours into them. They do not want other powers. But the man whose chest swells like the tides, who leaps the sea cliff to hear the roar of the fall, and dives straight into the ocean like a spear — this man is not like the rest. His mana is not only of the earth, but of the sky and water. He swims the lagoons and outer reef to watch the fish. He stands tall on the mountaintops. When he speaks, he will be listened to.

    — Maui, The Demigod, Steven Goldsberry

      I have all kinds of fireworks and I love setting them off! Go go Guy Fawkes!!

      • Izzy 18:17 on 23/03/2015 Permalink | Reply

        Awesomesauce! You certainly don’t have to wait till May for an MU fireworks show! You can call one anytime! Or maybe team up with an Emma Roof Rave.

        But yes, come may, you can be the official MU Pyrotechnician!

    • Neeva 19:09 on 23/03/2015 Permalink | Reply

      Come July 1 this sim will be flooded by Neeva’s tears. Then it will dry and we will start planning the Medici University reunion party and inking MU merchandising deals. How about MU the movie? Imagine one just like this university, but filled with movie stars, only everyone is naked….and then…Sharknado!!! I’m switching to the MU creative writing program and starting my script now!

      P.S. I have a lovely, centrally located studio for studio roulette. Well maintained, lightly used. Looking to trade for studio with indoor swimming pool and 60 prim garage + cash in an amount to be negotiated at closing.

    • Fanny 19:28 on 23/03/2015 Permalink | Reply

      Guido Faukes still seems to be very popular. SL search found 43 Avatars with “Guy Fawkes” in their name.
      I am looking forward to the fireworks!

      Neeva, I guess there will be enough tears from us to flood the whole sim. Maybe we should warn the neighbors? And I agree to naked!

      P.S. None!
