I’ve decided to take a picture a day, every day. Its to improve my skills, practice, experiment, and show you all my world.
This first POTD is the view out of one of my windows in my apartment.
The March issue of Prim Perfect is now out for your SL reading pleasure!
And now I can reveal that I have a substantial contribution to this month’s issue. Read the issue to find me talking about the historical background to this month’s featured sim, Al-Andalus. Discover my list of ten places to visit in the sim of Al-Andalus. And if that wasn’t enough, I even have an interview with one of the designers of the sim, who kindly walked me around, chatting about his interests and his design efforts.
And as a bonus, some of the pictures in this month’s issue came from the arranged screenshots of yours truly.
Along with the numerous other features and articles of Mel and her team, this month’s PP may be the best yet.
A dramatic rendition of the story of Oliver Cromwell and his friend Sir Thomas Fairfax, in the lead up to the deposal of King Charles I in the 17th Century. To Kill a King stars Tim Roth, Rupert Everett and Dougray Scott.
I’ve waited a long while to see this comedy of a British slacker whose pathetic life gets enlivened by a zombie attack.
Next, a martial arts action movie vaguely resembling Remo Williams or Big Trouble in Little China with its mixture of seriousness, action and humor. Bulletproof Monk stars Chow Yun Fat and Seann William Scott.
It’s so good to have a working DVD player again!
Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas is an animated feature with the voices of Brad Pitt, Catherine Zeta Jones, Joseph Fiennes and Michelle Pfeiffer.
Sci-fi guru Arthur Clarke dies at 90 – Space- msnbc.com
Arthur C Clarke, author of 2001, 2010 and many other books, has died in his home in Sri Lanka.
As much as I like 2001 as a cinematic achievement, my favorite novel of his probably is Rendezvous with Rama. One of the original and best, Big Damn Object novels.
The purple robed man opened up the scroll. A charm vocalized the written words, only for his ears. In the center of the scroll was a stylized painting of a white haired being. The Sidereal studied the painting.
“Good morning, Phelps. The being you are looking at is is none other than the Mask of Winters, the Deathlord who recently conquered the City of Thorns in the southern area of the Threshold, also known as the Scavenger Lands.”
“We have received information through unusual channels that the Mask of Winters next target is the Horse Clans realms to his north, centered on the ranch town of Mishaka. We believe that he is attempting to create shadowlands as a threshold gate to move a force directly into the region around Mishaka via the Underworld rather than heading overland.
Your mission Jim, should you choose to accept it, is to stop the Mask of Winters efforts for a possible invasion. As always, should you or any of your IM Force be caught or killed, the Bureau Head will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This scroll will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Jim.”
Next up is the fourth book in Charles Stross series about a clan of world-walking drug dealers, the Merchants War shares the strengths and the weaknesses of the previous volumes and ramps up the action and plot nicely.
