GoSpeed's new skin for 17 April 07

One of the drawbacks to posting yourself on Flickr is the IM stalker. You gals know him (some of you guys too). He sees you somewhere and obsesses finally IMing you. Of course this person is not able relate to people normally and usually spews a lot of creepy stuff.

Creep : “Dayum, you look fine baby”

GoSpeed : “Do I know you?”

Creep : ” I’ve seen your pictures on Flickr.”

GoSpeed : “Oh, Ok, thanks”

Creep : “I’ve seen you around too.”


Tell you what Mr ROKILL aka “Creep”. You come around me or my friends and it’s the BEES for you buddy!

Wow, Sunday night was awfully busy for me and GoSpeed. Those of you in the KONA Radio group are aware that Misty Taira of Bellus Lux art gallery is a sponsor of our station. Last night was the grand opening of her new art Gallery in Zabawa. Many were on hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony:

Here is Misty cutting the ribbon with her “SLissors”.

After the ribbon cutting we retired to the club next door to hear DJ Todd spin some tunes.

Basic Black is pretty sexy indeed!

After that was the KONA Radio Sunday dinner:

Right after dinner I rushed over to Paisley Beebe’s first talk show on SLCN. I was very impressed by what I saw, even as a “live” audience member. She interviewed my friend Heath Elvehjem who played a tune and I was also very proud of Yxes Delacroix who worked as a producer on the show. Here’s a link to the prodiced version of the show: Tonight Live

This past week saw the addition to the Sailors Cove estate the Hay Harbor sim. In the space of a week SC estate mangers Izabella Bentham and Tasha Kostolany took a raw island and created this:

Awesome Jobs ladies! Oh, this Izabella gal? She’s my SL partner and my RL wife too 🙂 . I am glad I introduced her to SL. She’s really excelled here at creating communities. Here’s a pic of me and Izzie at Hay Harbor:

On June 1st I changed business models and have come under the umbrella of a small station co-op that pays the licensing fees and royalties. So far so good I must say. Listener levels have remained consistent and my sponsor base has stepped up and provided me with enough donations to cover my operating expenses. I still have room to grow for adding listeners before I would jump to the fee level. If you would like to give KONA a listen and maybe use it in your parcel then please check out this link: KONA Radio

Contact me or GoSpeed Racer in world for the URL if you want it for your parcel / estate. I can also give you a HUD to use so you can launch it when you are anywhere else in SL. Sponsors and donations are of course welcome. Remember, I am paying my fees and royalties, so the artist are getting their take!


GoSpeed's new skin for 17 April 07

So there I was on a Saturday morning in Sailors Cove, enjoying the view. I saw a few people sailing one of the new ACA 32 racing yachts slide through the channel in the Fishers Island sim. Two green dots in the southern end, hmmmm. I head back to the clubhouse and ALT Zoom my camera to observe them. Two naked noobs, male and female and the guy was “ready for business”. Of course the ordinary way of doing things is to talk to them in IM and if they sass you then you eject and / or ban them. I decided to have a little fun with them! Meanwhile my friend Abella Beck says “Did you see them two?”.

“Yup, sure did!… watch this!”

I rezz Ordinal Malaprop’s beehive launcher and dive into the water. Cautiously I swim, getting within 20 meters of the horny couple. I poke my head above the water, go to mouselook and aim slightly above them.

“Phoink!”…………missed, came up short.

I adjusted the elevation a bit higher.

“Phoink!”….. right between the two!

The bees pop out and swarm over the both of them. It’s a thick particle cloud of angry, buzzing particle bees that blind them! I pop another round to make it last longer…. Heh heh, I zoom in for another look and and they are moving around with the swarms following their every move.

Poof! Poof!… They TP out. Mission accomplished and a good laugh is had by me and Abella :).
