“Crazy as a Loon’

My title reflects my insane laughter as I merrily skip from grid to grid making new friends and new promises! Another ‘slang’  phrase that comes to mind is ‘biting off more than I can chew’  or perhaps I just drink too much coffee…LOL

The month of May found Sun pretending she was a Movie Star when asked to be in Nara Malone and Fuchsia Nightfire’s 2nd tutorial video on “NPC” fun  , Sun also visited about two dozen grids, went on three HG tours, complied and published the 3rd Issue of VISIONZ magazine (38 pages woot), went to a couple of Metropolis’s 7th Birthday parties, partied at the Tangle grid’s Fashion Expo exhibit, worked on her Enchanted Village (Hidden Glenn region) on Tangle, started progress on a castle for her Fairytopia sim at SimValley grid, visited Kamis Haven  – The River Lands  – Cedar Point and Shoalwaters Bay  regions at her home grid of GCG, hooked up with her dear friends Lion and Kat Ewry and Daisy Coronet and DJTommy Seetan, had Balpien Hammerer visit AAcme City and ride the chopper and then declare it “an amazing build, had fun!” ,  added a couple new blogs to the Blogz “R” Us offices, and of course continued working on tweaking and creating AAcme City with her soul mate AAcme Fall.  Judy Muircastle specially scripted a couple of her awesome vehicles (The Chopper and the Bonnie and Clyde car) so that now anyone visiting AAcme City can rezz a ride and drive all around the 3×3 var (downtown area, country, beach, forest and mountains)  and we finished connecting our paved roads land level to the two story roads hovering above the city.  Phew!

Of course I took lots and lots of pictures which I will display here as slide show (40 images wow and I could added more ☻) instead of my typical laundry list of images 🙂

June looks to be just as busy for Sun. She is so excited to hold the first official VISIONZ magazine meeting now that we have official staff members! And on June 13th, Saturday, Sun is the ‘Guest Tour Guide’ for Metaverse Tours… hope you will join us.  I’ve chosen 3 regions on 3 different grids  hoping everyone will enjoy.  So stay tuned as Sun continues to be Crazy as Loon ha ha ha ha (insane laughter).

As always my valued friends and soon to be friends, Step in Sunshine, enjoying your time!

May Day May Day May

April was such a busy month on the RL Grid I for one am glad we have moved into the month of May!   AAcme City is now completely moved  on to a 3×3 var region on the Great Canadian Grid and Sunbeam has acquired two Fantasy regions (works in progress).  One called ‘Enchanted Village, Hidden Glen’ on the Tangle Grid and one called Fairytopia @ SV-66 on the SimValley Grid. More on those next post.

When not imagining great things that we should be creating and trying to create them,  then I’m  running around the Hypergrid space systems delighting in the awesome builds popping up like magic all over the place.   It’s gonna take forever and a day to see all the glorious things the metaverse has to offer.

Finally made it to a group tour (with Metaverse Tour) and got a couple snapshots.  Sunbeam always plan to go to these event, but somehow time slips away from me all too quickly. Next thing I know its the next day after and I missed everything I wanted to atttend.  Sometimes, like this week I was off running some errands that took twice as long as I believed and ~poof~ missed another tour.  Was really disappointed I missed the new WIP show put on by Serene Jewell and Selby Evans, hope to make it next time.  Sure wish someone would invent a ‘time travel’ code so I could pop back in the metaverse and rewind to any missed events.

After promising TeslaCoyel for weeks and trying in vain to HG to his home grid, the Atek Grid, Steam Punk City Sunbeam finally made it albeit without hair, skirt or shoes. I loved the City and the big ships and the imagination used to create the most wondrous metaverse Steampunk space.  Got myself a Landmark and plan to roam around again soon.

Stopped by to see my long time friend Peter Veliz (IamSambard Kingdom Brunel) who is very active on the Tangle Grid with Expo’s and his own region> Brunel Isle of Steam and the Brunel Museum of Steam. You have got to see his amazing steam engines and vehicles. Some of Peter’s items are built as exact duplicates (1/3 scale) of actual products on the rl grid.   A little birdie told me he does rl models of steam wonders and may put up a website soon.  Gosh, it’s been five or six years I’ve loved and admired Peter’s work and his sweet disposition.  I was thrilled to connect with Peter again after about a year or two since we last interacted.  Quite the family affair, his daughter, wife, niece, sisters (??? who knows who all else) have joined Peter in his favorite past-time torturing prims.

Of all the tours Sun missed we were totally thrilled to be part of the group that traveled over to the Tomb Raiders region on (grid.kitely.com:8002:Tomb Rider , temporarily on display hosted by Min Tigerpaw) created by the most talented artist Avia Bonne (Avia 3D Designs). Since it’s one of my favorite places to roam and get inspired I was excited to see it once again!  If you’re a lover of all things fantasy or you want to pretend you are Lara Croft herself then  jump on over and experience the thrill and joy of this very special region.

One early morning Sun popped into the Tangle Grid (residents mostly European time visits) and attended the ‘Meet and Greet’ with Isambard Kingdom Brunel.  Hooked up with my disco buddies Gary Kling and Leslie Kling and ended up with a second location for my  ‘Blogz R US’ (see separate page this Blog coming soon). Was amazed they still had the fantasy oar from the old Olantica grid where I had designed a fantasy region a couple years back.  Its was great to see Sarah Fairport, a very dear girl and true friend, and meet some new folks that call Tangle grid their home.  Sunbeam felt so welcomed!

The month of April has always been a lucky month for me as my previous blog stated  Sun attended an impromptu Dance Party at the Welcome center on Great Candian Grid (with awesome DJ Stormy Nights) and entered a Lotto drawing.  We walked away with $1,000 Maples WOOOT Hooooooooooooooo! New hair!

Party @ GCG

AAcme and I purchased a 3×3 var region to accomodate the growth and imagination we have for AAcme City’s future.  On 4/20 (yep I said 420… puff puff pass) our var was erected and on 4/27 our OARs were uploaded.  Well it did take two times for the OARs to come in correctly… but we couldn’t be happier with the new lands where we’ll now have a country area and forests surrounding our urban fantasy AAcme City.  Feel free to hop on the next ship heading our way and fly around to see all the improvements  coming soon.

90 Days of AAcme City

Feeling guilty for not keeping up my blog! I read many blogs and love how they know just what to say with style and wit! and then I vow to ‘Add New Post’ to my own but keep getting sidetracked (rl gird and now building 3rg).  Today I joined a new google+ group ‘Virtual World Bloggers’ and felt compelled to finally blog again!

Since most of my online time has been spent building building building on our two regions in 3rd Rock Grid, AAcme City and AAcme City Southside, I decided to post some of the photos I’ve taken as we been building.   Come see us anytime and if you want to have a home or shop for FREE @AAcme City contact me here, google+, Facebook or inworld.

Mermaids and Milestones

Kohana Schimmer Seond Life

The Dude and I have taken to ‘real life’ bike riding around our neighborhood since my Milestone birthday in September.   Enjoying ‘real life’ fresh air.  Yeah Baby!  His bike is faster than mine (of course) so I usually end up a half of football field behind him, toddling along listening to  the songs of the almost invisible birds perched high on the wires.  A far cry from the ocean floors.  While cruising along today my thoughts traveled to Mermaids and Milestones.  What the heck does that have to do with the Metaverse you say?   Well,  in my very first venture into a virtual world (good ol’ Second Life) I found out I could be a Mermaid.  Yes a real virtual mermaid with tail who can stay under water with out oxygen.  Of all the mythical creatures, a Mermaid is what I most desired to be.  Mermaids, Irish, sunken treasures, pirates, adventure.  If only my Fairy God Mother granted me that wish… and swoosh I’d be a Mermaid.   And I was via the Metaverse virtual worlds playgrounds.  Fun memories and lots of milestones were made.  Like:  my first surfing win (3rd place), standing up for my friends at their Weddings, starting my own surf team, organizing a Fashion Show, organizing a Home Builders showcase grid wide, winning my first ‘Builders’ contest, then winning  on a German grid (Global baby global \o/),  dancing with the Blues Brothers, starting my own event business, publishing my own magazine, being an avid builder and landscaper and a dozen others milestones I’d never dreamed I could do.    Then,  making the hard  decision to leave my surf-team, my friends, my busy vw activities and parties to return to the real world.  So I shelf-ed my other “self’s”, as it were. and began taking bike rides in the sun.  Another milestone.

Once in awhile  I will still log on to Second Life, or Metropolis, or Island Oasis, or 3rd Rock or other new virtual worlds as my Mermaid/Pixie self.   Alas, now my toon characters feels shy, awkward, old, out of tune with life in a virtual world. Not like her real self at all which was outspoken, a gesture freak, an organizer, a party gal, a participant, a real player .  I remember back to the times when logging on was the most important thought in my repertoire of mindless existence.  Oh don’t get me wrong, I had fun!  But I also remember the times I couldn’t sleep for wanting to be floating in a  virtual world propelling my Mermaid in the most beautiful under water scenes imagined with music tickling my ear drums.   I could sit for hours and hours  lost in a dreamworld of pixels and colors, always smiling, always happy.  I did make true friends too, because real people pilot their virtual ‘self’ in situations and conversations.  Conversations that surely will continue through emails or Skype or other means of technology always at our fingertips.

Mmmmh… Mermaids and Milestones and Metaverse.  I declare ‘M’ the letter of the day! Enjoy your M’s!

JUNE GLOOM

“June Gloom” the term surfers of southern California use to describe the morning hours of the month June as all along the coastline from San Diego to Los Angeles  clouds hang low, the sky is grey and misty and the Sun is hiding.  I fear I have contracted the June Gloom syndrome in my heart.  For the last six week or more I’ve noticed Sunbeam isn’t wanting to be activated and flitter around from grid to grid as any normal Gridhopper would be thrilled to do.  Her rl typist has lost the zest… at first she called it her ‘get up and go’ GTG… but as the GTG turned in deep thoughts of self analysis and loss of self confidence we become weary.  Tired.  Sleepy.  At first we denied the feeling… joining a new grid even accepting responsibilities to help build and promote said grid … partying and dancing with friend… tweeking a build and rearranging a few items on SunbeamS region in Metropolis… nothing would shake the feeling of ‘what’s its all about Alphie?’ if you get my drift.  I started thinking people were mad at me for no reason at all.  I started thinking my builds and videos and events and all I tried to accomplish were labeled  ‘mediocre’ and ‘who are you kidding?’ ! It got to where each day I logged on less and less until now its barely three or four times a week.  I’m hoping this is just a stage, just a June Gloom experience in the weather of my life and I’ll be sunny and shiny and spreading sunbeams once again … and perhaps bloom.

The few pictures below are of  Metropolis,  SunbeamS region there, Island Oasis sandbox where my friend Kiko made Sunbeam a unique special amazing beautiful  ‘Daisy’ outfit… our favorite flower evah!!! the Daisy! As you can see Sun barely took any photos at all … Sun did do a wee bit of  ruins building for Minethere Always newest Freebie OAR… and visited the new grid Velus Universe (no pictures taken there 😦 sorry)

Trying to look forward to a sunny July! Fly high, seek peace and laugh daily!

May Delay

May was an unusal month for Sun … she was not so active (have been feeling ‘out of sorts’ lately)  even though she did visit at least eight (8) VW and took tons of photos once again. Sun’s rl counter part was extremely busy not to mention her internet connection was faulty (her cable company sux!) all month.  The Cable guy is expected June 2nd to take a look.  One of Sun’s favorite grids (Metropolis) was off line for about 10 days doing maintenance and she really missed working on her region there called SunbeamS.  Sun did attend the Welcome Back party which was totally awesome once the grid was back up!  Pixel Prim built the coolest steampunk venue!

Speaking of Steampunk, Sun started a new game also this month… called “City of Steam“.  Its a web based MMO ‘steampunk’ fantasy, one of her greatest loves.  Sun  is helping to save the world of Nexus (see added page just for this adventure) and is doing a fine job too if I must say so myself.

So although this post is short and sweet, the many photos say 1000 words or more.  So ‘they’ say! Hope you E-joy!

MAY DAY

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

The first day of May brings to mind vibrant colors, ribbons, dancing, flowers and butterflies while the smell of a freshly mowed lawn fills your senses with memories of childhood days gone by.   The last two weeks of April was a most unusual time for Sunbeam.  Why you ask? Well believe it or not, Sun did not make it to one (1) musical event (a first I believe for her) during the last two weeks of April.   She had good intentions and had plans to go to a couple events she saw advertised and that looked like fun, but alas rl took precedence and she missed the events. 

Even still with missing musical events Sunbeam spent lots of time in her virtual worlds busy continuing builds on SunbeamS, Metropolis; Fairytopia, Tundra 3D; Hidden Glenn, Olantica, the Lost World; and Dry Gulch, Lady K & Lion’s Horse World II Island Oasis.  Sun even tried her hand at making an art piece, a Spinning Gold Crop Circle, can you hear the Twilight music playing in the background?   She was lucky to visit many friends on  different grids and took time out to attend the RFL Fantasy Faire event held on 10 sims in Second Life. OMG What amazing builds and imagination!!!! Plus they raised over 15K $$$ for a wonderful charity.  Congratulations!

Sunbeam joined another grid last week called Cloud Party,  a web based grid, which is a bit different with their building tools but hopefully we will get the hang of it.  Sunbeam popped into Kitely grid, and met her friend Minethere Always.  After hanging at the welcome center for a while we explored our friend’s  bladyblue bommerang regions, which were chock full of  Castles and flowers and glowing plants, all of Sun’s favorite things.  Exploring! another of Sun’s favorites things is about the most fun one can have in a virtual world.

While exploring on 3rd Rock grid, Sun found some wonderful creations made by her friend ambiant kukulca/Nicolas Tesla.  His Steampunk items are truly awesome!  A wonderful creator!!!  Sunbeam had the best time  car racing with Hans Ingen on his region Ingen Lab on Metropolis.  What a fun time and the cars went really fast! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!  She may have found a new hobby.  She agreed to take a spot of land to build some fabulous city illusion on the track edges.  Smiles.  Sun did some exploring on Tundra 3D and fell in love with her friend Anan Eebus’ region ‘Unveiled’,  its sooooooooooooo cool and icy and swirly and just fabulous!!!! There is also the newest region Stonehedge, on Tundra 3D, a must see! Sunbeam also spent some time exploring on Virtual Highway and marveled at Megan Cline’s Enchanted Mermaid Isle. Then she visited the Na’vi Museum and had fun paddling up the creek.

One evening while putting sit poses in the hotel on Dry Gulch on Island Oasis grid,  Steve F called and he showed Sun some darlin’ rides he had made for Abby, Scarlet Rose.  We had such fun! It was really great to catch up with the girls on IO too, Kat Ewry, Vickie Day, and a new friend Gracious.  Amazing how fast the time flew by. Girl Talk, gotta love it! Another good friend from IO, Kiko Kenichi stopped by the sandbox to show Sunbeam a few of her latest outfits! This girl is just amazing and so talented.  She even won some Best in “***” contest at the local pub.  (***Black, shorts, hat, mask, etc).

All in all Sunbeam Gridhopped to ten virtual worldz and once again took lots (42) of pictures to share with you my fellow metaverse explorers.  See links tab for information on virtual worlds to visit.  Happy Gridhopping!

ENJOY! Fly HIGH, seek peace and laugh daily!

 

And the Winner IS….

Sunbeam Magic! YAY! whoa! we were shocked and thrilled.  Thank you to Metropolis and everyone who voted for Sunbeam.  She was moved to tears. 

The first two weeks of April was quite exciting for Sunbeam with lots going on in many grids.  First, Congratulations goes to the Metropolis grid celebrating their 5th Birthday (April 2nd thru the 6th 2013).  Sunbeam joined the Birthday Build-Off (urged by Miney)  where constestants were challenged to duplicate an image (image by_Zdzislaw_Beksinski_1978)  via prims.  Sunbeam met some wonderful builders at the contest.  Sun so admires each immensely and will be to follow their works much more closely.    Sunbeam enjoyed parties, readings, concerts and light shows (Torben Asp and Wordfromthe Wise) Excellent awesome fabulous  celebration.   One of the big highlights for Sun during the birthday celebration was  exploring  Cyberbohemia Art region! Galen Dreamrezzer, owner of this region, also did a great video (on youtube) of the fabulous celebrations.  Well worth watching.  

Sunbeam was pretty busy in rl  so she didn’t get around to as many grids as she usually does.  She continues to slowly work on her Fairy Castle on Tundra 3D and recently became a ‘Greeter’ for this beautiful grid.  Sunbeam was also honored by Tundra when they chose her Steampunk Globe for the newly built Observatory by lucio Vallas grid owner.

Sunbeam added another resident to the fantasy free region, welcome Rowland Larkham!!! to Hidden Glenn Olantica. She worked more on the landscape and design at Hidden Glenn and showed her friend Mellow Merryman.   Sunbeam roamed around in her Na’vi avatar while on Virtual Highway grid enjoying the beautiful landscape and flowers by Marianna Monentes creator.  She also visited ‘Winners’ Trixie and Tendrik at their Steampunk region Port Lovelace. 

She visited her friends on Island Oasis grid and especially enjoyed Judy Muircastle showing her the wonderful mansions and fountains Judy has been making and selling in IO. Her friend, Annallisia Ford, in Germany, was hospitalized and Get Well wishes along with some Pixie Dust was sent to Anna.  We all miss her so much!

Sunbeam visited her heart~sis Minethere Always (on Metropolis grid) making a Chinese wall ruins for Miney’s latest FREE oar give away Chinese themed.  She and Miney attended many of the celebrations held for Metropolis’s 5th Birthday together and had the BEST time! gesturing and throwing pixie dust!!!! BTW did I say it was due to Miney’s encouragement that Sunbeam joined in the Build=off contest.  Thank you Miney… you always make me feel like a winner just being my friend!

And that folks about sums up Sunbeams first two weeks of this month.  Sunbeam visited six (6) grids and took lots and lots of pictures once again.  She did two more videos posted on her channel at youtube, Sunbeam Magic, and posted a new puzzle on SunbeamS Jig page.   Hope you enjoy the following Sun as gridhops around the Metaverse.   Until we meet again, Fly HIGH, seek peace and laugh daily.  HUGGS

April Diamonds

April is my favorite month of all!  When I was little mom always made me wear my yellow galoshes~ eccky in April! The rains fell like little sparkly diamonds from the sky and us kids would  jump and hoop and holler in every puddle we found.  April showers do bring flowers! Beautiful flowers! and April brings LOVE!  April 4th is The Dude and mine’s 42nd wedding anniversary! Both our children were born in April! And April has EARTH Day! What an awesome month April is!

The last half of March found Sunbeam working hard in her virtual worlds and thinking about some fun time ahead.  She is thinking of role playing on Virtual Highway grid as a Na’vi named ” Tsawke” meaning Sun of course.  She got her skin, her bow and some cool outfits!  Tsawke enjoys music and plays a flute.  Should be lots of fun!

The Barnyard Bash hosted by Lion and Kat Ewry on Island Oasis was a huge success on the 19th of March with lots of great costumes and fun times with BG Singer and DJVickie Day.  Sun started learning how to make virtual world videos and did a little ditty of the bash.  You can see all her videos at http://www.youtube.com/user/kathiebhess. Lion and Kat Ewry also hosted a impromptu Birthday party for Scarlet “Abby” Rose, Kat’s evening patient who was born with Muscular Dystrophy.  A very special young lady.  Sun did a video for Scarlet too. Smiles!

Over on Olantica grid Sun is still working hard adding details and finishing touches to the Hidden Glenn region.  Free home land for any non-human avatar.   She made the ‘Firesinger’ bakery and coffee shop for new visitors to relax and meet the locals.  There is also a shop full of Zadaroo.com free avatars made by Linda Kellie and some furniture and things to help set up your home.  Most items on the region are Free to Copy … so go take a look!

Sunbeam also got one of the free regions Zetamex offered and had it set up on Metropolis grid.  She called it SunbeamS naturally.  Metropolis also had a Rock Opera performance on the 30th of March (with her favorite actress Minethere Always) which Sun attended and made a video once again! Of course one must go to the show and hear the original songs and feel the message being carried.  The show is called ‘The Change’ and you can search for show times on Second Life or Metropolis grids.

Tundra 3D was down for a few days but as soon as it was back up Sunbeam got her hard hat and tools and started tackling the huge Castle she is making on her region ‘Fariytopia’ there.  The four story staircase is fit for any Queen or Princess to float down to her waiting subjects. He he he.  The Mushroom forest is coming along nicely and Sun recently had her first visitor, Tetsuya from Japan, stop by for a visit.  I just love meeting new people from around our globe.

Sun also visited Tertiary grid to see the progress of AAmce ‘The Dude’ Fall’s newest project… Dealy Plaza, Dallas Texas.  This year is the 50th Anniversary of the JFK Assassination and Dude is making a to scale virtual Dealy Plaza where the tragedy occurred.  To this day, many believe it was a ‘cover up and conspiracy’ while others believe it was a ‘lone nut’ Lee Harvey Oswald.  Will the mystery ever be settled? 

Sun attended one concert on Island Oasis ‘Shanye Jonstone’, a great songtress and fun times with friends!  She also helped her friend Judy Muricastle to test her build rezzer so folx can demo her new mesh homes! Jon came by to meet Judy and help out too.  Always great to be with friends. 

Enjoy the pictures Sun took and as always, if you see this pixie fluttering around any of the grids, shout out a HELLO!  Step in Sunshine.

Marching On

The month of March found Sunbeam quite busy once again.  She enjoyed some awesome musical concerts at different grids, Russell Eponym @ Metropolis, Melodee McDonnell @ Island Oasis,  CelticMaiden Warrior @ Vitural Highway and Torben Asp’s 1000th Show @ Second Life. All were excellent! As far as building, Sun is working on her Fairytopia region @ Tundra 3D, her friend Jillytopaz Wasp gave her a welcome parrot she just loves! Sun is starting on a castle at Fairytopia now.  Speaking of fantasy, Sun started a new fantasy region @ Olantica, called Hidden Glenn. Many friends have come to help  like Judy Muircastle of famed HOBO Amusement Park. Judy set up a carousel and merry-go-round there. Thank you Judy!  Minethere Always has done all the terraforming and donated many many wonderful items.  Sun also imported AAcme “Dude” Fall’s Arcadia Asylm’s grunge truck that is redone in Steampunk.  Textures were missing so Sun had to retexture before giving the truck to Miney for her Steampunk oar. 

Sunbeam is setting up the party area @ Island Oasis on LadyK & Lions Horse World region for the big Barnyard Bash coming up March 19th.    While @ IO Sun and her friend Kat Ewry visited the Steam Isles and had such fun, the maze was very very well done! Sunbeam also made some giant fantasy flowers and shared them with friends for free… always feels good to share!


Sun went on the @ Craft world grid and ‘went inside the belly of a live volcano’ (phrased coined by Virtual Christine) hehe.   Sun then joined a new grid that is Aurorasim powered (she was a ruth for the first time in ages lol).   Sun tried to take time out to clean up her an inventory, a big job considering how many grids she plays! Sad to say she barely made a dent in this work.  
Sun took a well deserved break at her home on 3rd Rock Grid and did some long overdue reading.  Then right back to work! 

All and all, the first part of March sees Sunbeam marching on  trying new things and keeping the fast pace Virtual Worlds are known for.   Sunbeam also started a new page on Facebook, called “Certified Gridhoppers”  for all who also enjoy hopping from one grid to another calling many grids ‘home’.   OH and Sunbeam designed a new logo for her virtual shops too!  Hope to see you hopping around the metaverse real soon.  Say Hello if you see this pixie flying around!  Spring is almost here, our favaorite time of the year! Hop, hop, hop!
