UPDATE TO MYST MOVIE SITE
Spymaster356 – MOUL Forum

Thanks, Spymaster for the heads up. New memo from Adrian about the movie:

“So, I wrote an internal memo today in response to Prince of Persia’s performance in the box office. When a video game movie fails to perform as it was expected while we’re trying to sell a movie based on a video game to the studios, it can get a little shaky.”

ISSIS’ MYST DIRECTORY
Issis Ceriano

Hi Uruites!

I want to promote the SL activities of our family here so I need your help.  At my community site, Serenity Myst Retreat, I’m creating a directory.  The categories are retail, art, writing, and community areas (Myst Inspired wanted, but others ran or represented by fellow explorers welcome also). I will need a texture for the 2X2 image, preferrably a 512X512 texture, and a note card that the image gives the visitor when clicked. If you have more than one type of area, please feel free to submit them separately. Use the note cards as a template (see in-world newsletter for the note cards), changing the title to your name, and get back to me as soon as possible.

BUILDERS BREWERY – ARCHITECTURE AUCTION
A benefit for the Frank Lloyd Wright Virtual Museum
Hosted by the Builders Brewery

Auction starts June 5, 1:00 PM SLT and ends June 12, 6:00 PM SLT
Auction Location at Builder’s Brewery: http://slurl.com/secondlife/Builders%20Resource/104/17/22

Here’s your chance to bid on some of Second Life’s finest homes and select accessories.  All proceeds from the auction go directly to the Frank Lloyd Wright Virtual Museum (FLWVM) capital campaign.  The FLWVM is licensed by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, at Taliesin West, in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Some of Second Life’s most beautiful homes and accessories will be on full display for one week, for you to browse, drool over, and bid!

Rosalie Oldrich, Assistant Director of the Frank Lloyd Wright Virtual Museum in Second Life,  says, ” I believe the Auction will kick off the museum’s capital campaign with a bang! We are planning ahead to purchasing a new sim and paying the tier charges once we have been awarded non profit status by the IRS. Then the museum will be able to double its size and provide more models of Mr. Wright’s work.

We are also looking for volunteers to fill such positions as Archivist/Librarian, Activities Scheduler, Docents/Greeters, Master Level Builders, Script Tech, Membership Coordinator to name a few. Just drop me a note card if you are interested.”

Entertainment will be provided at the Frank Lloyd Wright Museum sim http://slurl.com/secondlife/Usonia/79/79/22 on Saturday, June 5 from 12 PM to 2 PM SLT with a live performance art/game of Avatar Chess as performed by the Vaneeesa Blaylock Company Museum Performance Art, with guest artist Alish Ulsch from House of Alisha Historic Gowns. On Saturday, June 12 from 12 PM to 2 PM Burning Taiko, a percussion troupe offering unique live stage performances of drumming traditions from Latin American, Native American, African and Japanese cultures, will perform.

BIDDING:

Please explore all the amazing items available for auction! The creators will have information available—along with landmarks—to see more of their quality work.

If you wish to bid, take that item’s note card, and read it to confirm what will be included with your winning bid.  The current high bidder on each item will pay the bid amount from their account at the time of the bid.  If you are subsequently outbid, your money will be returned immediately.

All bids are final.  When the event ends, all items will be delivered to the appropriate winners.
