    Bertram Jacobus: *click*
    Dash Earthboy: did they do All That Jazz on Broadway too?
    Bruce Mowbray: Not that I know of.


    Agatha Macbeth: What was it about then?
    Bertram Jacobus: the movie ?
    Agatha Macbeth: Mm
    Bruce Mowbray: Director/choreographer Bob Fosse tells his own life story as he details the sordid life of Joe Gideon (Roy Scheider), a womanizing, drug-using dancer
    Agatha Macbeth: I like him :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Roy Scheider? He was also in JAWS.
    Bertram Jacobus: very special story - about a broadview regisseur, but also about his dying - with all the episodes which for example madame kübler- ross described ... don´t remember all ...
    Agatha Macbeth: And 2010
    Bruce Mowbray: Yes, a sordid tale -- and a true one.
    Agatha Macbeth: He played Heywood Floyd
    Bruce Mowbray: That name has a familiar ring to it -- Who was Heywood Floyd?
    Agatha Macbeth: Originally in 2001
    Agatha Macbeth: The scientist
    Agatha Macbeth: Don't remember who played him in the original
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh YES! 2001 -- A Space Odessy (never could spell that word!)
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah: William Sylvester
    Bertram Jacobus: sometimes i have the impression, my whole life was a movie ...
    Bruce Mowbray: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0062622/
    Bertram Jacobus: only a movie ...
    Agatha Macbeth: That's the one
    Bertram Jacobus: yes
    Agatha Macbeth: Are you the director or the star Bert?
    Bruce Mowbray: Does your "movie" have an interesting plot, Bert?
    Agatha Macbeth: Movie as Being - I like it
    Bertram Jacobus: oh. it´s more ... sometimes perplexing anyhow ...
    Bruce Mowbray: cool!
    Agatha Macbeth: A film noir eh?
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe . nice view bruce ! :-)
    Bruce Mowbray: (I meant, cool about "Movie as Being")
    Bertram Jacobus: your´s aga ? ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Probably
    Bertram Jacobus: ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: I hate the way the pillars get in the way of the camera angles here
    Bruce Mowbray: yes, especially when it's necessary to pull way back to get everyone in.
    Agatha Macbeth: That's better
    Agatha Macbeth: That's what I mean Bruce, yes
    Agatha Macbeth: And why so many trees too?
    Agatha Macbeth prefers things uncluttered
    Bruce Mowbray: never can have TOO many trees, though.
    Agatha Macbeth: Or a hug becomes a gang bang...
    Bruce Mowbray: Ha!
    Agatha Macbeth slaps her wrist
    Agatha Macbeth: Behave!
    Bruce Mowbray: Reminds me of something I read in a book about SL --
    Bruce Mowbray: university studies have been done concerning what "emerges" from human behavior...
    Agatha Macbeth: Ooh
    Bruce Mowbray: and it has been noted that "ethics" emerges from human behavior in SL.
    Agatha Macbeth: More so than RL?
    Bruce Mowbray: Avatar interactions over periods of time . . .
    Bruce Mowbray: well, in different ways than in RL.
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Agatha Macbeth: It's a very interesting subject
    Bruce Mowbray: I've discovered that myself -- in only the 4 months I've been here.

    Agatha Macbeth: Call us when the divorce comes through
    Archmage Atlantis: still only one


    Agatha Macbeth: Bless the Berti
    Archmage Atlantis: Nice Agatha, plural Bert's in Latin
    Agatha Macbeth grins
    Bruce Mowbray muses: We're voting with our bodies whether we're "lost in the 60's" or not.
    Agatha Macbeth: Like cacti
    Agatha Macbeth: i think mine just voted against
    Agatha Macbeth: It keeps saying 'you think you're HOW old????'
    Archmage Atlantis: And do you answer Aggie?
    Agatha Macbeth: I pretend not to hear dear
    Archmage Atlantis: This life is an illusion
    Agatha Macbeth: Hopefully
    Dash Earthboy: as a young soul I think I'm still in single digits
    Kiki Walpanheim: lost in the 60's?
    Archmage Atlantis: The smartest, most caring, most daring women I have know here have never had trouble stating
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-) (my "soul" is still in adolescence.)
    Agatha Macbeth is lost in the 70s instead
    Kiki Walpanheim: 1960's?
    Archmage Atlantis: I forget, I was born old
    Bruce Mowbray: Halllooooo, Zin.
    Bruce Mowbray: Zon.
    Dash Earthboy: Hi Zon
    Zon Quar: hi again
    Agatha Macbeth looks round for Zin
    Bruce Mowbray: the Zen of being Zin.
    Agatha Macbeth: and Zen
    Bruce Mowbray: and Zon.
    Agatha Macbeth: What about Zan?
    Bruce Mowbray: Zun.
    Zon Quar: Zon sounds best
    Bruce Mowbray: Zon, is cool, indeed.
    Zon Quar: nods
    Agatha Macbeth: Does it mean something tho?
    Zon Quar: sun
    Zon Quar: in dutch
    Agatha Macbeth: Aha
    Zon Quar: ive been told
    Bruce Mowbray: So, Arch, Is Koya also an illusion?
    Archmage Atlantis: The Zin of being Zin, and This, and there are some heiroglyphyics to say that with also
    Agatha Macbeth: I love hieroglyphics
    Archmage Atlantis: Of course, Bruce......Nimbus is my RL cat
    Archmage Atlantis: Koya is an idea
    Archmage Atlantis: Nimbus is a being in this reality
    Bruce Mowbray: Koya's namesake: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0085809/
    Bruce Mowbray: So, Nimbus is NOT an illusion?
    Agatha Macbeth knows it well (Quoyaaniskatsi)
    Zon Quar: arent we all
    Zon Quar: illusions
    Agatha Macbeth: We are pixels
    Archmage Atlantis: Could be Bruce, but the guy knocking on the keyboard would then also be an illusion
    Zon Quar: prentending to be Mes
    Agatha Macbeth: He is :)
    Bruce Mowbray thinks aggers might be what Pamala Clift would call a "disassociative."
    Zon Quar: agger ?
    Agatha Macbeth: Good old Pamala
    Bruce Mowbray: She's FINE -- and no that old, either.
    Archmage Atlantis: Thinks labels are just simple ways to catagorize complex things
    Agatha Macbeth: Lucky her
    Kiki Walpanheim: her voice is beautiful and sounds young
    Bruce Mowbray: yup.
    Zon Quar: all souls are yong
    Zon Quar: its just the bodies that get old
    Archmage Atlantis: Yep
    Dash Earthboy: lovely to see y'all again...time for me to mow some lawn
    Archmage Atlantis: that is why I like text
    Kiki Walpanheim: we are not a body with a soul, but a soul...with a body
    Agatha Macbeth: Go mow de lawan Dash
    Bruce Mowbray: Stay cool, Dash -- and look out for the neighbor's dog.
    Kiki Walpanheim: bye dash
    Archmage Atlantis: When my bf heard my voice, it was higher in tone to his
    Agatha Macbeth: And the neighbour's cat
    Archmage Atlantis: It messed up our roles
    Kiki Walpanheim: there is voice morphing in sl now
    Agatha Macbeth: Was he jealous Arch?
    Kiki Walpanheim: i tried that today, it was fun
    Archmage Atlantis: No, Aggie......he is a kind soul
    Agatha Macbeth: Aww
    Archmage Atlantis: Just not ready of that part of this illusion
    Yakuzza Lethecus: are there a couple of free voices or do you have to pay for all ?
    Kiki Walpanheim: especially when you sing the hyms in a church in SL with voice morphing...


    Agatha Macbeth: Sounds interesting
    Archmage Atlantis: There are hymns here? Tell me where pls.
    Kiki Walpanheim: yeah....didnt try to sing in sl before...and it feels good to do that in a sl church
    Kiki Walpanheim: well....when you sing or when your friend does, there is...
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Kiki Walpanheim: otherwise, the church is generally empty
    Archmage Atlantis: I love chants
    Kiki Walpanheim: me too
    Agatha Macbeth: Gregorian especially
    Archmage Atlantis: Baroque music
    Kiki Walpanheim: nods
    Archmage Atlantis: Do you know what fish that your fish is modeled on Bruce.
    Kiki Walpanheim: ahh....a flying fish
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: A blue goldfish?
    Bruce Mowbray: Nope -- do you know what fish Blub is modeled after?
    Archmage Atlantis: It is a reef fish.....Known as an angelfish
    Bruce Mowbray covers Blub's ears with hands.
    Bruce Mowbray: OK -- go on...
    Bruce Mowbray: ok.
    Agatha Macbeth: Looks like a wrasse to me
    Archmage Atlantis: That's it
    Bruce Mowbray: an "angel fish"?
    Archmage Atlantis: A wrasse would be much smaller, but the color is correct
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh no, wrasse are longer...
    Bruce Mowbray: Angel Fish
    Agatha Macbeth: I just looked on Wiki
    Agatha Macbeth: Definitely looks familiar tho
    Archmage Atlantis: There are fresh water and salt water angel fish.......very different
    Agatha Macbeth: Could be a piranha
    Archmage Atlantis: Nope
    Archmage Atlantis: Nice try Aggie
    Zon Quar: time to go..c ya
    Kiki Walpanheim: bye zon
    Agatha Macbeth: The Zon sets in the west
    Bruce Mowbray: Bye, Zon, Zin, Zen, Zy=un...
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, it is a label....Blub is blub
    Archmage Atlantis: A tautology
    Agatha Macbeth: All fish taste nice
    Bruce Mowbray: yup -- Blub the one and only.
    Archmage Atlantis: yikes.....Carnivores///////uo
    Kiki Walpanheim: btw....the pavilion here is nice...wondering if the higher levels of floors have been tried
    Agatha Macbeth: Sorry, reading about piranhas
    Bruce Mowbray thinks, "Figures."
    Agatha Macbeth: I often used to sit on the roof when I first came here :)
    Archmage Atlantis: How they can eat the flesh off a cow in moments?
    Kiki Walpanheim: oh
    Agatha Macbeth: With their teeth?
    Archmage Atlantis: They feed in schools.....odd word that
    Agatha Macbeth: I bet a lot more piranhas get eaten by humans than the other way round
    Calvino Rabeni: I saw a school of fish the other day
    Agatha Macbeth: Nice view Bruce?
    Calvino Rabeni: the whole school about the size of a CD
    Agatha Macbeth: Small fish then Cal
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, rather small, about the size of "rather" on this line of text
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, there was a school of alligators on tv yesterday..........a planned attack on a food source
    Kiki Walpanheim: lol at bruce's tag
    Agatha Macbeth: What kind of fish were they?
    Kiki Walpanheim: Not-Angel man/ Angel fish....the tag
    Kiki Walpanheim: the white tag below the avatar name


    Agatha Macbeth: A floating text
    Calvino Rabeni: I don't know what kind, there were a few different schools
    Kiki Walpanheim: yeah
    Agatha Macbeth: I wish i could work out how to do them
    Bruce Mowbray: It's Cal's fault -- He gave me the hovering text.
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll ask Wol when she gets back
    Kiki Walpanheim: some script?
    Calvino Rabeni: just off the dock, on a wind-less day
    Kiki Walpanheim: nods
    Bruce Mowbray: Talk to Cal, aggers.
    Agatha Macbeth: Cal gets too technical ;-)
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh come on -- all you have to do is wear it -- and then type /99 and whatever you want it to say.
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah er well...
    Agatha Macbeth: Where does it come from tho?
    Bruce Mowbray: (Should I tell her, Cal?)
    Calvino Rabeni: (Yes, but make it good)
    Archmage Atlantis: Wol is too tech....OMG.....who are you people
    Archmage Atlantis: Wol dumbs down everything
    Agatha Macbeth: That's why I ask her!
    Bruce Mowbray: Well, it is called "hovertext" - and you wear it on your shoulder. . . and Cal can probably give it to you.
    Bruce Mowbray: But you're going to have to start being nice to him.
    Agatha Macbeth: How nice?
    Calvino Rabeni: heheh
    Archmage Atlantis: Good question, Aggie
    Kiki Walpanheim: so cal wrote the script....
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh it's a script is it?
    Bruce Mowbray: Don't know anything more about it than I've already said, sorry.
    Agatha Macbeth: No point asking you then Bruce :p
    Bruce Mowbray: I will try to give you a copy -- but I don't think it's transferable.
    Agatha Macbeth: Useful stuff usually isn't
    Kiki Walpanheim: i think you can see the origin of the stuff, where it is bought, or did i get it wrong...
    Agatha Macbeth: Aha
    Agatha Macbeth: ty
    Kiki Walpanheim: well....i mean...i have a rough idea it seems somebody once told me how to see the origin of certain outfit/avatar/objects where it is bought...
    Bruce Mowbray: YW!
    Kiki Walpanheim: but dont remember how to...

    I now have 'Hello Hello' above my head

    Agatha Macbeth: One more and I'm a policeman
    Archmage Atlantis: and, wrong, right......they are both relative to what each entity sees
    Bruce Mowbray: None
    Kiki Walpanheim: i see archmage's tatoo 天
    Archmage Atlantis: *raises eyebrow*
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes it was given to me, Kiki
    Bruce Mowbray: and his shirtsleeves, too!
    Kiki Walpanheim: oh
    Kiki Walpanheim: it means,....sky
    Archmage Atlantis: I did not ask for it
    Kiki Walpanheim: universe...
    Bruce Mowbray: cool, Arch.
    Archmage Atlantis: The first totem given to me......let me look
    Kiki Walpanheim: totem?
    Archmage Atlantis: can't type.....nim needs to be held
    Bruce Mowbray: I admire Arch for getting his priorities straight.
    Bruce Mowbray: I admire anyone who can clearly distinguish between SL and RL - because I can't do that.
    Kiki Walpanheim: me neither


    Archmage Atlantis: is there an reason to distinquish?
    Agatha Macbeth: I need to go off and sort this out
    Bruce Mowbray: Ask Nimbus that.
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye for now everyone

    At this point, I disappeared to sort out my new hovertext

    Calvino Rabeni: what is "clearly distinguish"
    Bruce Mowbray: Byeeeee, aggers!
    Kiki Walpanheim: bye agatha
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye aga
    Calvino Rabeni: To distinguish or not to distinguish, that was the question
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i can´t sadly
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i am as pam said too immersed
    Bruce Mowbray: "Clearly distinguish" means turning off the computer when RL matters need attending to.
    Archmage Atlantis: What is nobler in the mind....:)
    Calvino Rabeni: REALLY?
    Bruce Mowbray: I am also IMMERSED.
    Calvino Rabeni: TO suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous pixels
    Archmage Atlantis: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Or to take arms against a sea of prims, and by doing so, Ctrl-Q
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i can  ´t even imagine to find such a variation of ppl in rl, and to be surrounded by that many subjects and even ppl whom are deeper involved into these
    Kiki Walpanheim: i think that s for quiting.....
    Calvino Rabeni: To sleep, perchance to multitask
    Calvino Rabeni: But in the sleep of multitasking, WHAT DREAMS may come?
    Bruce Mowbray: Me neither, Yaku. For those reasons, SL is a most valuable resource --- ACCESS is what it's about.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i multitask often since i get too stuck into single subjects easily
    Archmage Atlantis: These are the dreams, they come
    Yakuzza Lethecus: stuckness is my enemy as well unconcentratedness
    Bruce Mowbray: Aye, there's the rub.
    Calvino Rabeni: Horns of a dilemma, Yaku
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yeah, those are i try to balance
    Archmage Atlantis: He/she/it lived many decades ago......this point in existence has been seen....I see you
    Calvino Rabeni: Hmmm, yes, good old "he/she/it", I'll never forget him/her/that
    Kiki Walpanheim: concentration and repeatedly doing one thing is fine....as long as it does not concern others
    Archmage Atlantis: That is why I prefer "e"
    Bruce Mowbray: Whoa, Kiki. Do you really mean that?
    Calvino Rabeni: > <
    Calvino Rabeni: >-<
    Bruce Mowbray: What is >-< ??
    Kiki Walpanheim: well.... they say that whatever you want to achieve , if you spend , say 100,000 pesistently on doing it, it is likely you achieve what you want...that is called diligence....but when it is about unrealistic anticipation towards other ppl, it is not diligence no more...but...
    Kiki Walpanheim: 100,000 hrs
    Archmage Atlantis: Kiki is still typing
    Kiki Walpanheim: i have finished typing
    Bruce Mowbray: ok. I was thinking about Koya -- and the concept of "Balance" on an individual level.
    Calvino Rabeni: 100000 hours is a lifetime
    Kiki Walpanheim: well....that was exaggerating...so...
    Archmage Atlantis: It was not exaggerating
    Kiki Walpanheim: but spending 3-4 hrs a day practicing one thing for 10 years
    Bruce Mowbray: ok. Even ten hours.... if not in balance with the rest of one's life?
    Calvino Rabeni: approximately 50 person-work-years
    Kiki Walpanheim: the time invested would be formidable
    Kiki Walpanheim: well....then subtract some zeros from it
    Kiki Walpanheim: not trying to be accurate....just as a demonstration


    Bruce Mowbray: But -- the point is---- Does something I do for MYSELF (and do in an imbalanced way) affect the world?
    Archmage Atlantis: Once said, the zeros cannot be extracted
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Bruce Mowbray: [written in pixel granite]
    Archmage Atlantis: The answer is yes
    Archmage Atlantis: has to lift nim, brb

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i think i wasted many hours of my live being stuck in my own world believing false things and not communicating enough and not being surrounded by enough diverse opinions
    Calvino Rabeni: Maybe so
    Archmage Atlantis: Yaku, my mother was in the first co-ed class at the University of
    Calvino Rabeni: It's better to believe false thing in good company
    Archmage Atlantis: Florida
    Archmage Atlantis: I choose to believe
    Calvino Rabeni: I do appreciate the value of diversity regardless of its truth value
    Bruce Mowbray: SL must been a valuable tool for you, Yaku -- SUCH diversity here!
    Bruce Mowbray: be.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: how to preserve naturalness each moment ?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: we can meditate, can we forget everything ?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: should we forget everything `?
    Calvino Rabeni: I saw a book in an alternative bookstore - "The Eightfold Path to Complete Spontaneity"
    Archmage Atlantis: Never forget
    Archmage Atlantis: But be free, yes
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i feel a bit sad, good night
    Archmage Atlantis: Rest small daughter
    Bruce Mowbray: I've found that when I meditate, those things that upset me previously have less impact -- I react less . . .
    Bruce Mowbray: I don't know whether that would also work with memories -- but I think so.
    Bruce Mowbray: sad, Yaku. We are listening.
    Calvino Rabeni: The Middle Way would be - it's good to be able to forget a large variety of things on special occasions
    Bruce Mowbray: Do you wish to say more, Yaku?
    Calvino Rabeni: Yaku has been forgotten by this session :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh dear. I'm sorry that he left,,, just then.
    Calvino Rabeni: Although one of us could speak on his behalf
    Archmage Atlantis: Really
    Bruce Mowbray: about our own being sad?
    Archmage Atlantis: is Yaku a he
