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 :).


Hi! This is GoSpeed Racer!

I’d like to thank Ravishal for giving me space in his Blog. We seem to travel in the same circle of friends so it only seems right we share a blog. So where did I get the name? Well when I signed up I saw the name Racer and Speed imeediately came to mind, but darned if it was already taken. GoSpeed Racer was the next best thing. Didn’t do too much with my account until right before Christmas. At that time I looked like this:

GoSpeed and Diana

That’s me on the right, Diana Allandale is on the left.

As nice as the free “caramel” skin was I wanted something better. So I went to Bare Rose and got this one:

Not too bad, slightly asian I suppose. But I still wanted something different and I began to look around SL. I noticed that avatar’s of “color” were pretty rare. One day I found myself in the Mischief sim and found this nice gem:

GoSpeed Racer

WOW! It sure did make an impact with all my friends, and yes it was pretty unique. Still it’s a bit lacking, the make up is not quite right, I got overly light areas under my eyes and the skin takes a greyish tone at times. Sort of like I had talcum powder sprinkled on me. I just saw a nice skin by Nora Skins on Sonata that I will be checking out real soon.

Well, when I’m not trying new skins I love live music events, especially Bill and Pam Havercamp. I also sail sometimes, but mostly I hang out with my friends. I’d also love to recognize Heath Elvehjem, Kori Travanti, Louis Volare, and Kirsten Corleon. They are truly great and wonderful artist I have had the pleasure to meet in SL.

I’ll have more later… byeeee!!!!!!

As I promised, here is the latest skin for me: Noraskin Espresso!

GoSpeed's new skin for 17 April 07

So I wonder, what ethnicity does this most look like? African? South Asian, Pacific Islander? North American mix??? LOL

As many of you know I own and operate KONA Radio which streams 24/7 into SL. Server uptime has been pretty good for me so far but you know when they advertise 99.5% uptime then sooner or later you’ll experience that 0.5% downtime at some point. The stream went down for a couple of hours Saturday night. Here is an excerpt from Janie Otis’s status site :


The electricians are now onsite replacing one of the main power breakers, which blew when the center switched back from generator power to mains utility power. The center was running on generator power due to the recent storm weather in Texas.


Jamie has been pretty good about responding to any problems or queries I’ve had in the past. I’d highy recommend him to anyone who shoutcasts in SL.
