Bursting into SecondLife(tm)


“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it.  Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.”   …Begin it now.


per Wikipedia, this “Goethe Couplet” (the two sentences in quotations above) is attributed to John Anster, based upon his loose translation of lines 214-30 in Goethe’s Faust


It’s been an intense few days/weeks at RL work with an org-wide audit covering a five-year period, and using animoto again has proven to be a bit of a gentle decompressor. I love this animoto tool.  (Thanks, again, to Botgirl for blogging with/about it.)   Happily, I learned from the last time.  This time, it didn’t take me a day and 45 minutes to complete the project.  Only mere minutes.  So much so I finished this a couple of days ago (before the audit stressed everyone utterly out) and scheduled the blog to run now.   (I feel super nerdy with the scheduling point and click, even though I’m sure this is a very simple undertaking for most.)

So, I couldn’t resist creating another video trailer, but this time to present the new creations at the Shengri La Vintage Marketplace.  In all of 29 seconds, the tool showcases (again with free music from the site) some of the gorgeous creations from Balderdash Jewelry; Kicks & Twirls; PasDeDeux; Luminous Designs.  I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that two of the photos are by ober talented Callipygian Christensen.

Those photos a wee bit out of focus or low res?  Uh, yeah…those would be mine.  I like to think that they give the piece a certain patina, as Saiyge would say.

  1. Yay patinas! (Patinae?) Lovely little video (and I didn’t even know you *could* schedule things for later posting in wordpress!).

  2. Laughing, you’re right! I do have more than one patina in there, laughing! I’m fairly hooked on that animoto tool…the music and the creative mixing of the images is pretty fun. You know, I ended up having to press the publish button. Even though I did schedule this post, for some reason it didn’t publish at the scheduled time! Been one of those RL weeks, and thankfully that the audit is over, I can laugh about it now. No worries at all, smiles.
