One of three final glimpses from the last Burning Life, featuring some of the most ambitious projects of the event, redolent with artistic and technical brilliance.

"TAMED FRUSTRATION", an environmental sculpture piece by Lash Xevious.

"It was inspired by a dream I had not too long ago," Ms. Xevious explains. "In the dream I am in different roles. One roles was the girl looking into the box, while other times I was inside the box... And there was an instance where I was just this bodiless entity, observing the whole scene.

"The dream only inspired my build visually. What I wanted to express was the feeling I had from that dream and my surroundings. So mostly it was based on feelings of sadness and fear.

"This feeling that I wanted things out of my reach.

"I think it's my nature in wanting to have the ever vague Ideal. No matter how hard I strive for it, I may never be satisfied. And there's always that rude awakening... you get what you want, and it turns out not so great. I was also listening to my sentimental playlist [when I built it.] I tend to get nostalgic. And sappy. Bleh."

"[The texture for the sculpture was created] from pictures... [but the originals] don't look like [the finished work]. I go into Phtoshop and make the colours richer or add some lighting effects. I like to mess around with the texture filters and see what I come up with. The textures overall have a violet-ish tint to it; that's my colour of choice, I guess. They all have that tone."

Next: ringing in the new Burning Life...

Tiger Crossing's "MUSIC, BOXED", the sound-enabled interplay of falling metal spheres and resonant cylinders, which chime as they're struck. (And hurt you, if you happen to be in their way on the way down.)

"It's just a larger, grander offshoot of the Marimball instrument I made for last year's Burning Life," says Crossing, referring to a site still on display in Celadon. His abbrievated explanation for the building process:

"Create one 3x10x10 cylinder and script it to randomly rotate and position itself in a given 3D volume [in this case, the cage.] Shift-drag lots of copies. Move the few that intersect by hand.

"Create a temporary-on-rez physical sphere that fades into view on rez, and fades out when it drops below a certain altitude. Make a script to rez copies anywhere on a given plain (the top of the box). Ta-da...

"Only took a day or two to put together. Making the spheres damaging if they hit you was the final touch I liked... wild notes caged for your entertainment. Watch your fingers."

If anyone stopped by "Music, Boxed" on the last day of Burning Life, you may have seen the great escape. It seems the Wild Notes sensed their impending erasure, and broke out of their cage, bending back the bars and running free out across the Tow Cows sim: http://forums.secondlife.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=22704&highlight=notes+AND+escape

Lash's display struck a huge chord in me. I like everybody's work in Burning Life, but I found myself coming back to hers again and again. To me, it was filled with a sort of dispair that I could connect with. Made me feel less alone in the world.
Thank you Lash....

After you fall in the grip of erectile dysfunction, you are required to obtain the levitra prescription first before administering the anti-impotency medication for the reason that levitra is a prescription-based drug and as such the administration of levitra without prescription can wreak tremendous destruction to your body. The necessary cautionary measures are to be obtained with regard to levitra administration if you want the drug to yield the desired results. No one can doubt the veracity of levitra effects against erectile dysfunction but the outcome from levitra administration would certainly not correspond your expectations if you fail to take levitra according to the suggestions of the doctor. Obtain levitra prescription online and wage your war against impotency.

Looking good holds much more implications today than it held earlier. But in order to look good it’s mandatory to have a good health and a healthy skin. Health and beauty have a very deep relation. Without the one the other becomes lame.

One of the best ways to the cure of ED is to see the disease in its
correct light. It should merely be seen as a disease, and disease it is,
that has affected the male sex organ. Correct and proper href="http://www.besthealthmed.com/ed_assessment.html">ED assessment is
necessary to do away the disease from one’s life. People attach a lot of
other factors like shame, embarrassment, fear, low self esteem etc and
these make the treatment of erectile dysfunction all the more complex
and difficult.
