Perchance to Day Dream



"Yoga is Union.
Yoga is first of all the union of the subject and the object of consciousness: of the seer with the thing seen.
Now, there is nothing strange or wonderful about all this.
The study of the principles of Yoga is very useful to the average man, if only to make him think about the nature of the world as he supposes that he knows it.
Let us consider a piece of cheese. We say that this has certain qualities, shape, structure, colour, solidity, weight, taste, smell, consistency and the rest; but investigation has shown that this is all illusory. Where are these qualities? Not in the cheese, for different observers give quite different accounts of it. Not in ourselves, for we do not perceive them in the absence of the cheese. All 'material things,' all impressions, are phantoms.
In reality the cheese is nothing but a series of electric charges. Even the most fundamental quality of all, mass, has been found not to exist. The same is true of the matter in our brains which is partly responsible for these perceptions. What then are these qualities of which we are all so sure? They would not exist without our brains; they would not exist without the cheese. They are the results of the union, that is of the Yoga, of the seer and the seen, of subject and object in consciousness as the philosophical phrase goes. They have no material existence; they are only names given to the ecstatic results of this particular form of Yoga."
from 'Eight Lectures on Yoga' by Mahatma Guru-Sri Pramahansa (orig. pub. 1939)
.:: DoL ::.
There is a subject that I have wanted to discuss for a while but exactly how to contextualise it didn't become clear to me until I visited the 'Daytime Dreams' region created by Dolphin Aeghin (.:: DoL ::.).
(click images to enlarge)
It concerns the relationship(s) between virtual art, education in virtual worlds, human relations expressed through an avatar and why some Second Life sims are clearly more "popular" and "successful" than others.
.:: DoL ::.'s work at Daytime Dreams manages to capture something which I think is important to the success of a sim and, by extension, important also to Second Life itself.
But before we address that issue, let us first take a detour and look at examples which empathetically are *not* what I am thinking of.
I remember being invited to one particular educational sim to listen to a lecture.
They had built a decent-enough auditorium in a semi-circle; seating was individual chairs.
Except...
Expect that the chairs hadn't got a "sit" in them. That is, it wasn't possible to actually *sit* in the chairs (except in a most deformed and ugly manner).
My point is, the educationalists who owned and built the auditorium didn't consider for a moment that avatars might actually want to *sit* in the chairs! To them, the chairs were architectural features necessary for a visual authenticity but, within a virtual world, totally redundant for actual usage.
So we all stood behind the chairs looking like vertically-stacked pilchards, watching and listening to the lecturer.
But the story doesn't stop there.
Because as the lecturer looked down upon us and pontificated about "the purpose of Second Life" and "how Second Life should be used" and "the future of Second Life and virtual worlds", I was thoroughly distracted by the fact that the guy looked like a complete fucking noob!
Worse in fact, because he had obviously attempted to do *something* with his avatar but had clearly decided "this just isn't worth the effort".
As I observed this lecturer's avatar and listened to his words, I realised that he had a massive "disconnect" between himself and his avatar; between the virtual world he purported to be an expert in and his actual existence within that world.
In short, it was clear to me that, although he was *in* Second Life, he wasn't actually *part* of Second Life - he knew nothing about its culture (or sub-cultures) or how people use it on a daily basis.
For me, he lost all credibility at the moment of that realisation.
Please understand, I am not talking here about some lofty point of philosophy like the "Augmentation vs Immersion" argument.
Rather, I am talking about much more down-to-earth things; I am talking about things that people do every day in SL, as normal activities.
I am pointing out that this educationalist lecturer was completely unaware that avatars *do* actually sit down in virtual worlds and that people *do* make judgements based on the appearance of avatars.
I am also suggesting that he had probably never danced in Second Life or hugged or had a blowjob or fucked.
Or felt the hurt and upset of one human being to another through the medium of an avatar.
Or comforted another human in distress simply by the act of two avatars cuddling.
Or broken another's heart.
Or had his heart broken.
He studies a tree but knows not the beauty of a forest; he knows the chemical composition of sugar but has never experienced its taste; he measures the distance to remote star-systems without ever being awed by its wonder.
Similarly, I was once in a club when a very rare bird indeed flew in - The Lesser Spotted Linden Employee.
A number of us said "Hi" or otherwise greeted her - no response whatsoever. I totally get that - she was at work and possibly studying region performance stats or whatever. Who knows what she was doing. But not a big deal regardless.
However, what was remarkable was she had absolutely no control over her avatar! She was walking into walls, bumping into people and even walked straight over a couch. One year in SL and she had no more ability controlling her avatar than a day old noob.
I kid you not.
It was stunning to see.
And as I watched her, I suddenly understood the attitude that must be so prevalent within The Lab that it resulted in the decision to remove surnames when registering for an SL account.
To them, Second Life is just a "technical" or "engineering" matter, a case of "instances of software and servers" or whatever.
They apparently have little or no understanding of the social implications of their decisions within Second Life.
The removal of avatar surnames has created a "class" or "caste" system in Second Life. This was predictable to anyone with any depth of experience of human relations. It is not nice or desirable nor indeed have any positive aspects at all - but it *was* predictable!
Expect, it seems, to The Lab. 
And worse, they show no signs at this time of either understanding or even caring about the negativity that that ill-fated decision has caused in-world.
How can this be?
I submit that the same malady that affects the aforementioned lecturer also affects some Linden Lab employees - they may well be *in* Second Life but they are certainly not *part* of Second Life.
There is nothing especially wrong with any of this, of course.
It just seems to me to be a very emotionally barren approach to virtuality in general and Second Life in particular.
Concretely, I am saying that these so-called "experts" are misunderstanding and missing out on experiencing the single most important aspect of Virtual Worlds - the capacity to conduct sincere and warm human relationships through the expression of an avatar.  
And that brings us roundly back to DoL's Daytime Dreams installation.
Because in most every aspect of this installation, we, as avatars, are able to express ourselves socially and emotionally.
This is not a "dry-as-dust" intellectual exercise  - it is sensual, moving and poignant excursion into avatar emotional expression.
In amongst the various individual artwork and installations on the region are discretely placed couples seating, couples poses and couples dance balls.
The overriding message is not so much "Please admire *my* work" as it is "Please admire *each other* while at my sim".
It is clear from spending quite a lot of time at Daytime Dreams (once before it was open to the public, twice since opening - a number of hours on each occasion) that .:: DoL ::. not only understands SL technically (building/scripting), and understands it artistically (as evidenced by this wonderful "newspaper rose", for example)...
 ...but she also understands it emotionally, socially and sexually.
And these things together - technical, artistic and socio-sexual - represent the runway to the zenith of experience in virtual worlds.
Frankly, I trust the opinions of an artist like .:: DoL ::. regarding SL far more than I do a lecturer or employee who can't be arsed to fully engage in the subject matter that they claim to be an expert in but nevertheless use to pay their mortgage.
You see, in my opinion, .:: DoL ::. has proven her credentials as an "expert" within virtual worlds by creating Daytime Dreams - I challenge the educationalists and Lab employees to prove theirs!
"Yoga is Union."
.:: DoL ::. has create a virtual space which successfully unites technicality, artistry and simple human connections and engagement.
She is to be applauded and thanked.
We sincerely hope that she will also be emulated.

When Is a Shopping Trolley, Not A Shopping Trolley?

Recently I was given a gift from Bryn Oh - a copy of the shopping trolley that she created for her "Anna's Many Murders" installation.
(click images to enlarge)
I am very grateful and honoured.
I hold Bryn's work in the highest esteem.
I think you will agree, the shopping trolley looks just perfect between the latrine and the sack of dung.
I had originally planned to write a long treatise on the philosophy of art - a "What Is Art?" type of article using Bryn's trolley as the central object of focus.
This article would have discussed the nature of art itself and how certain artists have taken everyday items and presented them as art, with Andy Warhol's 'Campbell's Soup Cans' being one of the most well known examples.
I thought it might be interesting to consider what makes Bryn's shopping trolley a "work of art" - is it the prim? the sculpty map? the union of prim and map maybe?
I would have considered the possibility that the shopping trolley in and of itself is not a "work of art" at all but merely one of a number of components which work together to finally form the artistic installation known as "Anna's Many Murders".
But for completeness sake, it certainly would have been necessary to consider the shopping trolley as a "work of art" in its own right, and further, ponder if we should not then similarly consider *any* textured prim as a "work of art".
If not, why not?
If I right-click 'edit' the shopping trolley, I see the Creator is listed as "Bryn Oh" and the Owner "Pixie Rain".
But what if I linked a new root prim created by myself to it? "Pixie Rain" would then be shown as both the Creator and Owner.
Have I just forged a piece of art?

Or have I created something entirely new - a "Genuine Pixie Rain" so to speak, irrespective of any "artistic" claims or merit, or indeed any "history" that may be inherent within the prim, the XML or the asset server database.
What would be the legal and moral implications of such an act?
It certainly would have been interesting to examine what we mean by the phrase "3D Artist".
Surely most any work in most any medium is "3D", ie: having length, width and depth.
Why do we apply the term to those working in artistic software generally and virtual worlds particularly?
All these are interesting and valid questions.
The answers to these questions may provide some insight to the future evolution of software-based art but, after due consideration, I decided to leave these lofty matters to others and simply present these pictures to you, and thank Bryn Oh sincerely for her generosity and kindness.

MachinExpo 2011 - A Worldwide Phenomena

185 machinma entered the contest. 61 were selected for screening. 11 were selected to compete. But there would only be 4 prize winners...
Tikaf Viper, Iono Allen, Pixie Rain, Tutsy Navarathna
MachinExpo 2011, probably the most important of all the machinima festivals, is being held this weekend.
A significant point about MachinExpo is that there are entries from numerous digital media, not just Second Life (SL). In fact, in the top entrants, SL machinima entries are easily outnumber by other forms of machinima.
Iono Allen, Pixie Rain, Tutsy Navarathna, Tikaf Viper
In a few weeks I hope to do a review of 3D cinematic tools such as MovieStorm and iClone - popular and *effective* alternatives to using SL for making machinima.
You'll see examples how these applications can be used in the film links below or by visiting their web sites.
Chantal Harvey, Pixie Rain, Tutsy Navarathna
MachinExpo is broadcast live across the internet from purpose built studios within SL.
Although there is a small studio audience, most avatars watch the broadcast from the UWA Theatre.
But even that doesn't really tell the whole story because, by far, the majority of the viewing audience watch over the internet.
Many of the viewers would never have even been in SL.
Chantal Harvey, Pixie Rain
I was asked to attend with Tutsy Navarathna whose UWA III winning 'A Journey Into the Metaverse' was one of the eleven machinima selected to compete in the contest.
My role was to answer the audience's questions about Tutsy's film and his film making techniques, on his behalf - due to language difficulties and chat lag caused by 
bandwidth deprivation.
The questions that the audience posed were intelligent and knowledgeable - and ranged from machinima techniques, software and aesthetics.
Tutsy's role was to provide much needed eye candy (joke!!).
Pixie Rain, Tutsy Navarathna
All eleven of the competing films are screened at the festival and each Director participates in a Q&A session.
The standard of these eleven films is really quite daunting. The Q&A was very interesting but what stuck me deeply is how machinima really is becoming a worldwide phenomena - and SL just a small slice of the bigger picture.
From the eleven competing films, there are four prize winners.
I have to tell you, all four are sensational.
But what is truly interesting to me is that only one of those four is actually filmed in SL - the others were filmed using alternative software.
"Mastermind" - the 2nd Runner Up - was particularly surprisingly to me personally because I had absolutely no idea that such incredible film making could be done within video games like Grand Theft Auto - even through I was familiar with Ian Chisholm's 'Clear Skies' series, filmed in EVE Online.
All four winning films are definitely worth watching and, imo, *should* be watched and studied by anyone serious about the emerging art of machinima.
In traditional reverse order, then....the MachinExpo 2011 winners are:


3rd Runner Up: The Goalkeeper and the Void by Marta Azparren (Pro Evolution Soccer 09)


2nd Runner Up: Mastermind by Ezequiel Guerisoli (Grand Theft Auto)


1st Runner Up:  A Journey Into the Metaverse by Tutsy Navarathna (Second Life/Real Life)


Grand Prize Winner: Haunter of the Dark by Phil Browne (iClone)




I accepted Tutsy's award on his behalf - electrical storms in India having decimated his broadband connection - and gave the following acceptance speech for him:


"I am so honoured to be presented with this award.
The quality of the entries are stunning in their scope.
It is humbling to be compared amongst them.
Machinima, as an emerging art form and as a form of social expression, is starting to find its own definition.
As early adoptors we are casting the foundations but, it is the future of the form and the changes ahead which are truly exciting! Thank you."


After the Award Ceremony, Bobo Puddlegum & I moseyed on down to the After-Event Party and boogied away with DJ Hathead to '70s dance music.

Making Dick Trickle - Virtual World Tour

Andy Dennis plays the blues live at Old Lar's House every Sunday 11am SLT.


The combination of his guitar, mouth organ, cheeky personality and funny double entendres have made him a firm favourite and won him lots of new fans.


Although he claims to have backing musicians playing along with him in the studio - namely Tony the Terrible on bass guitar and Dick Trickle on drums - they have never actually materialised on stage in Second Life.


Many of us are now doubting their actual existence and until they appear on stage at Lar's, a shadow will forever hang over Andy.


This is very sad because Andy probably has no idea just how much we'd love to make his dick trickle and tony terrible...


See for yourself...

UWA IV: $L20,000 Audience Participation Event

Tutsy Navarathna Joint-Winner UWA III - Photo by PJ Trenton
MachinimUWA IV has attracted over 80 entries. Pretty impressive!

$L20,000 prize pool has been allocated to the three audience members who most closely decide the order of the top ten finalists as decided by the judging panel.

Simply email your top ten to jayjayaustralia@hotmail.com or drop a notecard on Jayjay Zifanwe in-world.

Here is my personal Top 10 (listed alphabetically by film name)  Two of the entries have already been posted on this blog:
1. Tutsy Navarathna's Welcome to the Other Side (which I am proud to appear in!) 
2. Iono Allen's Virtual Love.

I believe each one of the machinima listed below have something valuable to offer - for learning from and for improving our own work.


All are definitely worth watching, if only because they are good films!

What order I finally rank the ten will forever remain a secret between JayJay & I!


Before I get to my list, I especially wanted to draw your attention to the entry from Nina Camplin (Fuschia Nightfire in Second Life). It is both unique and stunning.


Nina is a mural artist from the UK. Her UWA IV entry had her deconstruct "the art of the artists" and reconstruct them into RL paintings. She filmed the painting process as it progressed and used the footage to create this truly amazing machinima.


If you decide to watch only one of the eighty entries, then this is the one I would recommend. The soundtrack, incidentally, features  the singing voice of CoMa whom we blogged in June 2011.







My Top Ten (Alphabetical by Film Name)


Good luck to all contestants!

Meet the Puddlegums!


In Second Life (SL), you get to meet many sorts of people: some are intelligent; others are creative; others still are funny; many are perverted, dirty and uncouth; lots have well-thought out, interesting and attractive avatars; some are imaginative and articulate roleplayers.


Rarely though do you get to meet someone who has *all* these qualities rolled into a single package.
Rarer still do you get to meet a whole family of such people!


And so with all that in mind, it is my abiding pleasure to invite you to come and Meet The Puddlegums!


The Puddlegum family comprise Albanian brothers Solok and Nasty, their cousin Bobo and, the rumour is, Solok's son, Spunky.

Solok and Nasty Puddlegum
Solok himself however, in his broken English, claims that Spunky is not and cannot be his son because, as he puts it, "da skinny tosser's bullocks are too small".

Spunky Puddlegum
For his part, Spunky is very proud of his Puddlegum heritage; he loves his "dad" dearly and admires Nasty above anyone else on the planet.
Spunky is fond of saying, "Nasty is so 'ard, he wears Blakeys in his Airwair".

Bobo Puddlegum
Bobo Puddlegum, Nasty and Solok's cousin, is an elderly midget (not a dwarf!). He took early retirement from his former service as a circus performer (variously employed as an acrobat, human cannon ball, clown, elephant tamer and pickpocket) when his excruciating hernia became so painful that he would scream like a wounded animal every time he landed badly on the trapeze safety net.
Parents, children and understandably enough, his beloved elephants, found this extremely disturbing.  

Nasty Puddlegum
Through wily cunning, shrewdness, stealth and the judicious use of a pick axe handle, Nasty is universally recognised as is the Head of the family.
On occasion, he has been known to ride rough-shod over the other family members.

Nasty rides Bobo
However, they all continue to support, admire, respect and, above all else, fear him.

Nasty
Before returning to Europe to form 'Fuckpig Enterprises' using hard-earned Columbian venture capital, Nasty spent 3 years working alongside Che Guevara as his bodyguard, gym instructor and personal guru.

Nasty Puddlegum circa 1962
However, deep in his heart, for as long as anyone could remember, Nasty yearned to be recognised as a top-class award-winning pornographer.
Finally, 'Fuckpig Enterprises' would provide him the opportunity to realise that dream.
Nasty Puddlegum - Vice President of Fuckpig Films
Under Nasty's stewardship, 'Fuckpig' released a number of innovative and diverse porn films including 'Pregnant Facial Parties Vol 1 to 6', 'Spunk Guzzling Twins', 'Midget Fisters' (staring Bobo Puddlegum), 'Old Farts Vs. Teenage Ass's' and many others.
'Fuckpig' won the coveted 'Golden Labia' award on no less than four occasions. The ground breaking 'Shemales A-Go-Go' is a classic and still considered one of the most influential films of the genre.

Nasty Puddlegum's business card
Arguably, Nasty's crowning achievement as VP of 'Fuckpig Films' was discovering the emerging talent Pixie Rain.
Using his many years experience in internet grooming, Nasty partnered with Lar Jun to launch her career in pornography, convincing the naive girl that "your parents will be proud of you!" and "porn is *not* a waste of a University education!"
Nasty and Lar instigated a joint-venture to sponsor Rain's work and have been living immorally off the proceeds ever since.
'PsychoKiller' starring Nasty Puddlegum & Ziggy Bookmite
Nasty went on to star in one of Rain's machinima, 'PsychoKiller' (2010), alongside Ziggy Bookmite. This machinima is Second Life's first ever snuff movie.
The film was later used by the prosecution at Nasty's trial and proved instrumental in his subsequent conviction and incarceration in the prison wing of a high-security psychiatric hospital deep in the beautiful Berkshire countryside.




Upon his release in November 2011, Nasty immediately went into production with an invention that had occupied his mind throughout the long dark, dank days of his imprisonment - the portable glory hole.

Solok trials the Portable Gloryhole at Old Lar's Place
Long term, however, Nasty hopes that to find investors willing to put capital into his cum-filled syringe insemination programme.
He claims that governments all over the world are showing interest in this programme because it is quick and easy way to improve the quality of a countries' gene pool.
Nasty fiercely rejects accusations of promoting eugenics and quotes the noted 19th Century Albanian nihilistic philosopher Alpert Nietzsche in support: "If I kill you, it makes me stronger."
The Cum-Fill Syringe Insemination Programme
Solok Puddlegum is the oldest and, it is widely and justifiably believed, the most perverted member of the family. He is also the quietest, largely due to his poor understanding of the English language.
He has become adept, however, in making his intentions known using only his eyes, fingers, tongue and an obscene rotating of his hips.
Solok dishwashing at Old Lar's Place
Solok is adamant that he is not Spunky's father despite Spunky's frequent protests to the contrary.
When challenged, Solok has always refused to co-operate in a DNA test.

Solok terrorising old ladies at the retirement home 
"Fuck off," he once explained to the investigating Child Support Agency officer as she tried to re-claim forty years of back payments.
He finally slammed the door in her face when she refused to tell him the colour of her knickers.

Solok relaxed and happy
When not at home masturbating over Nasty or Pixie's pornography, Solok will most often be found masturbating over the bar dancers at Old Lar's Place.

Solok with his last two known lovers
From a very early age, it was clear to everyone that Bobo Puddlegum was destined for little things.
Diagnosed as a midget before his mother had even been trolleyed out of the delivery room, his father sold him to the Albanian State Circus before he was fully weaned.
Only by the Grace of God and the protection of his cousins Solok and Nasty did he make it into teenage.
Bobo Puddlegum cira 1973
Being a teenager is never easy and even more so if you are born a midget.
But young Bobo was a fighter and had one big asset that gave him an advantage over his peers; it ensured he was never without female company...

Bobo's Assets
...Bobo loved to dance!

DJ Bobo before the BPI confiscated his decks and LPs
Dancing is but one of Bobo's many talents. He lists his other interests as baking, knitting, embroidery, sailing, spanking and anal fingering.


Embroidery 
Many of these skills he learnt by necessity from living with Nasty and bed bathing Solok. Other of the skills he was taught when he attended Walthamstow Reform School for Boys in East London.


Bobo baking
Lar Jun, friend of the Puddlegums for four generations man and boy, was the first to offer the young Bobo gainful employment.
Spotting Bobo's obvious culinary talents, Lar had him preparing food in the scullery. 

Bobo prepares food
The exact reasons why Bobo was dismissed has been lost to history but oldbie's at Lar's Place still talk in hushed tones about being served a "The Full Breakfast Surprise".


Breakfast is Served
Bobo has a tendency to dress inappropriately at social events. Nobody really understands why.
For example, when invited to meet Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth Version 2 on the lawns of Buckingham Palace to celebrate 50 years of The Women's Institute, Bobo dressed as a Jester.

Anal Fingering
Salty Seaman
Gadfly
Bobo, always the womaniser, has never been found wanting for female companionship.
However, when he was selected as Playmate of the Month for the popular 'Midget Lovers' magazine, things would never be the same for him again.
Playmate of the Month
Invited to all the best parties, girls offering him their underwear, free lap dances, sex a simple smile away...life was good for Bobo Puddlegum.


Free lap dances
Free ass
But in essence, Bobo is a simple man with simple needs.

Lar and Bobo
Coming from humble beginnings and despite all the trappings and riches that life has presented to him, he is never happier than when in the company of his best buddy, Lar...and his trusty handheld fleshlight.


Custom size fleshlight
Spunky is the most emotionally sensitive of the Puddlegums, likely due to suffering from chronic irritable bowel syndrome.


Spunky Puddlegum defecating
Whereas for many, having a spastic colon would lead to a life of disability and welfare cheques, Spunky has done his utmost to build himself a respectable career.

Queefer's Assistant Manager
Spunky is proud to recently have been promoted to Assistant Manager of his local Queefer's mini mart. He has been presented with the keys to the padlocks on the window security grills and has responsibility of opening the shutters each day and re-locking them at close of business.

Spunky Puddlegum: Sensitive and Proud
He takes his responsibility so seriously and is so diligent that his Regional Manager was moved to report that "Spunky Puddlegum has become an indispensable Yes Man."

Spunky contemplating his career
After his 14-hour shift at the mini mart, Spunky enjoys nothing more than Karaoke at the nearby Wheel Tappers and Shunters Club.
His rendition of Carla Lane's 'Your So Vain' is near legendary but it is his Elvis Presley impression that brings the crowds to their knees...and tears to their eyes.


Elvis Puddlegum
Although his "father" Solok has been married four times in all, Spunky has never been married - a fact that hurts Spunky deeply and on a daily basis.

Spunky practices safe, hygienic sex
His Lonely Hearts personal ad appears every Thursday in the Scunthorpe and Hull Gazette. Sadly, Spunky has yet to receive a single reply:

"Male 60's. Slim, glasses, high sperm count, WLTM 18 - 25 F w/ appetite for mutual masturbation & ballroom dancing. Cooking skills a bonus. Will wash cock for intercourse.
Box #548"

Spunky Puddlegum WLTM 18 - 25 F
Like his father before him, Spunky is partial to masturbating over images of Pixie Rain. He met a sticky end, however, when CCTV cameras filmed him breaking into Rain's production studio and depositing semen all over her computer monitor.
CCTV image used in court as evidence
Spunky pleaded guilty to all charges and was sentenced to 100 hours community service. He felt this would be a great opportunity to improve his social life.
Solok, however, was less than impressed and was overheard saying to Nasty, "Da skinny tosser got off with a puffs sentence. He no son of mine!"
Nasty nodded sagely.


Skinny Tosser
Who am I, you ask? How do I know so much of the Puddlegum story? Why am I so interested?


I am the product of the Nasty's first ever cum-filled syringe insemination programme, twenty years ago - a generic experiment that went catastrophically wrong.
The sperm of the four Puddlegums accidently got mixed together in the same test tube. The contents of that test tube were injected into a female volunteer.


Nine months after that terrible incident, I was born. 


Genetic tests have found traces of Solok, Nasty, Bobo and Spunky in my DNA.
I am the Daughter of all four Puddlegums and all four Puddlegums are my Father.


My name is Pixie Puddlegum.
