    Generatives, glitch, and gifs MUGA opening 

    The Generatives, glitch, and gifs opening was held on Friday, June 5th. It was a nice event and there was a good turnout. The artists talked about their work and it was an opportunity for others on the campus and off to meet them.

    Thank you everyone who helped with this event, loaned their work to the aspiring gallery, and attended this event. A special thanks to the artists – Pearl Grey, FeelsEmpty, Elle Thorkveld, and Michael Green – and to Oona for building the gallery.

    The show will run through June 15. Please stop by if you haven’t had a chance to see the show. After that, I’ll try to do one last show, probably machinima.

    Here are some pics from the event:

      Great article Myra 🙂 The show was a great success I think. I’ll be sad when June ends, I love MUGA a lot.

      Great write up & love the pics, Myra. It was a fun opening, thanks to my fellow artists and all who attended for making it that way! And thank you to Myra for curating & facilitating this exhibit and to Oona for all her gallery building. Excellent work.

      I recall participating on one of Feels Empty’s Step Art creations. Fun! Great exhibit.

      thanks so much, everyone. It’s official, now. I want your movies. We’ll figure out how to upload and host them.

    New Collaborations from Pearl & Friends

    Just like the Internet itself, at MU, Collaboration Rules! And no one’s doing it better than Pearl’s Story Board series.

    In her new Man, Woman and Dog project, Oona, Elle, Paypabak, Veyot, and Neeva all offer their vision inspired by Pearl’s image series.


    You guys are so awesome!

    • Pearl Grey 16:55 on 18/05/2015 Permalink | Reply

      This isn’t the newest collaboration; it’s the first one of four that I’ve done. I’ve been posting them to my MU journal blog. It’s come to my attention that content is wanted for MU Creativty and now to KPO Gallery which (yay!) wants to include some writing too. The project has been changing, as projects do, by discovering easier ways and being told what is ‘wrong’ in the eyes of others. This first image/story had only four pictures and five submitted stories. The next two sets of photos, while interesting, were much more ‘prompts’ than photo art worthy of display. The last set, well I did a lot of work on it and it has seven pictures and two stories besides my own. Consideration was given to presentation in the gallery, which Myra is planning for this week, and to the presentation in MU Stories. This first set was the best choice for that. Art Ojula and I are almost ready with the next and last image/story project which has been planned for better presentation on MU Stories and the KPO Gallery. There will be about five weeks to write, it’s very flexible and I will be sending out personal invitations if need be. It’s interesting that so far, some of my favorite stories are from people who say they aren’t writers!

        Thanks for all the background info and for clarifying my inaccuracy Pearl! Wonderful project! Keep up the fantastic work!

    BAOC Award 



    Passing along the BAOC award, I thank MU for this honor.  I would like to give the award to Oona Nostra (msbluerasp) in recognition of her diligent pleasance at MU. And also her especially beautiful bio-prose mixed-media Flickr entries – a diary of the romantic existential,  living on in perpetuity. It is always a pleasure to run into Oona on campus or to participate in a class with her. Thank you Oona!

    6 Hours (May Numbers Challenge) 

    I’m going to buy one of those bottles and stick you in it.

    Ha! Promise?

    Yes. And I’m serious.

    Oh I know you are.

    I’ll let you out but only when it amuses me.

    You don’t have to trap me.

    I know. But I wanna be sure you don’t get away.

    You have to want to get away to actually get away.

    I’ll give you air occasionally. Every 6 hours.


    Yes I promise.

    Four A.M. Pyromaniac (May Numbers Challenge) 

    I remember when
    you took out those matches.
    Pulled the red tip over the matchbox
    and started that fire.

    It happened so fast.
    Your eyes glued to mine.
    Watching me watch you,
    as you threw the flame to the ground.

    Stunned, I watched it burn bright
    lighting up the night,
    I was mesmerized.

    Four A.M. Pyromaniac (May Numbers Challenge)

    I pulled you away.

    I moved my lips up to yours,
    looked right into your eyes,
    as I kissed you.

    Do you want me to?

    Yes… and no.

    I don’t want to.

    I know you don’t. But I warned you about fires.

    Mmmhmm I know.

    Then I reached out, took the matches from your hand, and pulled you down the path, as the fire continued to hiss and crackle behind us.

      I love this poem, Oona. It’s so good I was wondering if it was a lyric. I even tried googling it.

    Z is for Zebra and Ze End 

    Dear Ryan,

    Z is for Zebra

    I wasn’t a fan of blogging before I started this challenge. I might have been kinda negative about them, cause everyone and their cat has a blog. Some people have many more, not that I know any of those people. o_O

    I’m glad you asked me to blog with you. It was fun, hard, time consuming and rewarding. Thank you.

    And although I was prepared to go another round with you in May, you need a break, so I’ll be grateful I can relax for a bit, until you decide to stop being a wuss and do another one with me. 😛

    HELP! Pretty Please Save Our University! 

    If the Help Desk Thinks...


    As talked in proposals and acquisitions or whatever with Vanessa,  I’ve decided to throw together a proposal to do Medici University 2.  I’m sure anyone could do a better job, but my idea was to canvas everyone and compile all the greatness and show them why this place is such a great gem.

    Worse they can do is laugh but the best that could happen, and the scariest, is they could agree with me.

    Anyway.  I need all of you to please pretty pretty please answer these questions for me and I’ll compile them up into one thing.  Along with our Flickr pics that show how much fun we have, and just general guilt tripping, maybe it will happen!

    Notecards would be best (msbluerasp resident), but contact me in whatever way is easiest for you.

    1.  Is Medici University important to you and why?

    2. How did you come to be here?

    3. If you think back on the first day to now, do you see growth in yourself?

    4. Has being amongst like minded creators, improved the amount of time you work on your creative side?

    5. What specifically do you enjoy about Medici U?

    6. Honestly, what specifically do you not enjoy about Medici U?

    7. What would you like to see here at Medici U that isn’t already here?

    8. What would encourage you to spend more time here at Medici U?

    9. Do you think its a good idea to extend or renew Medici University for a second go around?

    Please answer these, and notecard, IM or even answer below.  I’ll likely try to get the proposal all squished together first week of May so please get them in soon.  🙂

    Thank you fellow student/party animals!  <3 <3 xoxo

    P.S. If you only have time for fast and dirty answers, that helps too.

    Thank you to Kyle James at Flickr for his CC photo.

    R is for Regrets 

    I’ve gotten the go ahead to post individual posts for A to Z challenges since there aren’t a lot of us doing it.  I find it easier to keep track of new stuff on MU Talk anyway to be able to know I haven’t missed anything.  So feel free to do the same.  Read about my letter R at Flickr or on the blog I share with Ryan.

    Oona Fawkes & the Grey Dossier

    Are you as excited as me? New Blog Post!

    • Oona 22:18 on 30/03/2015 Permalink | Reply

      “But try to exchange something. And never worry about “losing” something. The most meaningful things in life cannot be lost by sharing. They can only become even more precious.”

      <3 What a beautiful series of words strung together. I will add, I think I’m settled and not ready to move again for about a month. 😛

      • Pearl Grey 21:29 on 31/03/2015 Permalink | Reply

        I’ve been considering different ways that I can exchange at MU, including the learners I’ve never met or that I see around and never talk to. Feel free to contact me with any ideas.

        Anyway, I’ve been mulling over some ideas to do a blog post regarding Bad Ryan’s Agent of Chaos post called “Why Bother?” I just reread it and noticed that comments have been activated six hours ago.

        /me points at it.

        • Oona 18:00 on 01/04/2015 Permalink | Reply

          Hey Pearl 🙂 I’d love hear that blog post about Bad Ryan. 🙂

          As for exchanging with other learners, I enjoy trying to find new ppl to meet that I haven’t before. Its not always easy it seems and sometimes my fear of rejection works its way up into my head, but overall – I’ve had few problems and many surprises. And…. I think I’ve made some of the best connections I’ve ever made anywhere else in Second Life. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, MU is one of my fav places ever for what its about, what it gives and who is here. Its a hidden gem. 🙂

          • Pearl Grey 02:15 on 03/04/2015 Permalink | Reply

            I agree Oona; it’s a hidden gem. And I’ve made a few great connections that will last longer than MU.

            I’ve kept my invitations to collaborate simple to make them more do-able and I’ve had to say no to some because they’re beyond what I can do.

            The rejection part is a little scary, I know. Who wants to feel like an interloper?

            I’ve found that being on the sim at different times of the night and day when possible can result in pleasant surprises.
