Film Noir

       Two destinations that delight this week. Grid addresses at the end of the post as usual.
        If you have not visited Avacon Grid yet, put it on your 'Must See' list.

         Not only is Avacon closely associated with the organization and prep work that goes into the annual Opensim Community Convention (held over on OSCC Grid), it is also home to some interesting regions, including the Building Tutorial region Primland, you may remember it being originally on Fleep Grid; some nice work-in-progress Library regions belonging to Rockcliffe University, and of course Nebadon Izumi's regions bursting with interesting free stuff, called Oni Kenkon Creations.

Safari Goes Down Under

               Three stops this week, with the added bonus of some teleport hullabaloo. Addresses to our three destinations - all impressive grids and regions worth your time - at the end of the post.
Camping on the beach in Australia

                We gathered, as usual, at the Safari Clubhouse on Francogrid, on a region called hgsafari so reasonably easy to find. This week had an Australian emphasis, and although our first stop was not on that continent, our second destination host managed to be with us from the start, pretty impressive since he lives on the other side of the world where the Safari starts at about 6 am, not 9 pm as it is for those of us in Europe.

Walk-through Safari

             Each Safari trip lasts about three hours. Sometimes, that's divided into three one-hour visits, and sometimes into two ninety minute encounters. This week was of the ninety-minute-times-two variety, and for good reason! Our destinations were on OSgrid, Metropolis and Mobius grids (huh? three grids for two destinations? You'll see.) and all the HG Addresses are at the end of the post, as usual.

Safari goes from the Foxx to the Absurdists

"In the simplest terms, Absurdism is the belief that universe is 
too vast and unknowable for for human beings to ever know anything for certain. 
Because of that, we do not possess the ability to say or know for certain 
what, if anything, has meaning of value objectively. 
This causes us to comprehend the absurd nature of our existence: 
we cannot exist without meaning but we are incapable of determining meaning."

The Absurdists were Post WWII writers, like Albert Camus, who you perhaps haven't heard of, or like the book Catch 22, which you have heard of. So now you've Googled that, you'll agree that nothing really fits the hypergrid paradigm better than 'you have to be crazy to work here'. Yesterday proved we're crazy like a fox, in this case, Foxx Bode.

The planned destination was on Foxx's Red Dragon Club X, built when Foxx first discovered opensim back in the year dot. Sadly, this didn't work out, so we decamped to the Safari clubhouse on Teravus Plaza. But do take the time to go and see Foxx's historic OSgrid build, HG Addresses are at the bottom of this post, as usual.
