Since I returned to Second Life about a year ago, I’ve been trying to recapture a sense of community that I had lost. It’s time to admit to myself that it isn’t going to happen. Too much has changed, too many of the places where I felt at home are done & over with.
Le Cimetiere isn’t coming back.
ArthOle isn’t coming back.
Fracture is over (for me, at least).
The art scene is over (too corporate now, & only certain types of art & artists get any attention).
The world of Second Life moved on without me while I was gone. I don’t have a place there anymore, though I might still come back to build for fun.
It’s time to move on.
Saturday 16th January 2016

With a specially prepared Bowie-themed installation, music, and dancing.
Join us to pay tribute to one of the greatest artists of our time.
Located at the Doors of Perception installation at Intermundia, Kress — the home gallery of veteran SL artist Nebulosus Severine.

Chewy, one of the 2 stray cats we’ve been feeding & sheltering for about 12 years, is missing.
She showed up on our doorstep when we first moved into this house about 12 years ago, and if we hadn’t already had cats, we probably would have taken her in. We assumed that someone in our neighborhood who moved probably just abandoned her. We named her Chewy because, when you’d pet her, she’d be so happy that she’d kiss & lick & eventually bite you gently. We took her to the vet somewhat regularly to make sure she at least had her shots & all. During the colder months, we insisted on taking her inside to live in our basement where she could stay warm & safe, despite her reluctance to come indoors. She was always eager to get back outside again when the weather got warmer. She never strayed far from our porch and was always there to greet us as we came & went. She has always been an affectionate and gentle girl and seemed to have a happy life.
We haven’t seen her in 3 days, and for a day or so we assumed she was hiding out from the scary, noisy road construction that has been happening right in front of our house. But, she hasn’t returned, even at night time when everything is quiet, not even for food or water. At this point we are starting to realize that she may have passed away. We could tell she was getting up there in age, but had no clear signs that anything was wrong with her. She was probably at least 14 years old. I will really miss her, she was a very sweet cat. I feel a bit guilty too, thinking that we should have done more to make her life better. We love you, Chewy. 😦
I feel like I’ve only just returned to the metaverse, and now it’s time to return to my avatar to stasis yet again.

Some of you may remember me as a veteran SL artist. I was a very active member of various SL art circles (ArthOle, Not Possible in Real Life, Brooklyn Is Watching, etc.) up until about two and a half years ago when my PC died. Since that time I have only been able to log in sporadically with an old laptop that can only run a text client of SL. However, I am staying with my RL/SL partner until late March of 2015 and I am able to use their laptop for SL on most days.
Thus, I am looking to get involved with some projects again. I have land available and am planning to create gallery/artspace with thought-provoking, groundbreaking, subversive installation and interactive art to exhibit not only my work, but that of other artists too. The total land space will offer about 1100 prims. Additionally, I will be running some fundraising events to help me raise the money for a new laptop. I recently completed my Associates degree in Fine Arts and want to continue to further my education, but need a powerful machine to help me do that.
Please contact me if you have any interest in collaborating! I miss building and making art here and am looking forward to getting into it again soon.
THE POWER OF BUNNYKEN COMPELS YOU
Now that school is over, I have time to focus on things like self-promotion and…updating this blog! I’ve been meaning to do a crowdfunder-type thing for quite awhile now. That said, the laptop fundraiser is now LIVE!! If you aren’t able to donate, please at least signal-boost this to your friends!
