May the brine find you fine.

¡Album re-release! VVINTERMVTE (2016, KPO10) is now HOTELGNOMES. Have done some eq-ing and crunchy distortioning to fix-ish/make worse? some awful, sub-bass-infested original mixing and bring out the juicey anxiety juice that this album is full of. Listen on Bandcamp or notttt. Probably wisest not to tbhhhhh.

Updated the sub-deities diagram on the Lore page.
Update to the Lore Page. Now version 1.3...
Finally, a proper currency!
The impossibility of scarcity has been long established in my film-world lore, but somehow for some reason things are still for sale in places like Mr. Wonderful's restaurants, Gibbon Marts and shopping malls and such. The... loose term... logic behind this has now been dealt with through having cow-boigirl-knight-sisyphuses carrying Beans of Gold up a mountain of hats and squares.
The new glossary entry is available here.

Worlds-Within-Worlds have access options which are decided by their creators or current owners (if they changed ownership, like the Ziggurat City), so some are public-domain and are like shops, towns, etc. and some are propreitary and private. They were kinda like this already, but now it's IN THE LORE.
Sub-deities and similar body-less figment-entities now should all universally have inhuman pronouns 'it', hopefully to make it clearer that these aren't characters per se, more like... abstractions?
Some alterations to clarify that the Pear People were (probably) created specifically by learning about hotels from Henry, not by some vaguely magicky stuff Henry was doing or anything.

Following from my previous post about building a gallery-ish place in Second Life, which was almost exactly a year ago...
I moved to a different continent in December! From Heterocera to Gaeta 5; a more modern landmass, from 2008 no less. As is err... clear-ish in the picture above, my new location is a kinda beach-y balm-y sand-y sorta place. The ocean starts (out of frame) not far to the right. Further up the road is the HISTORIC Blue Moon Theatre (SL's number one owl-run venue), further down the road is a little airport.
Along with changing location, I have changed buildings. I am now using the 'Flower Shop' from a gacha by PLAAKA, which, while much narrower than my previous building, has some fun characterful features, such as the arched doorways, pink and green interior and an upstairs courtyard-space--partially visible in the picture below--which I have (over)filled with tropical plants Brand New Cherry Flavor style.
I feel like the narrower interior suits the smallness of the paintings, and it is nice not have a white cube space. The colourful walls and floors keep things appropriately non-serious. I am hoping to put a gift shop out in the back room, but I need to come up with some... well... gifts to sell.
The upstairs has no exterior windows, so is a sorta world of its own. Currently it is raining up there, thankfully no damp problems so far. The restricted space makes for a cozy clutter-y feel, having the courtyard as a semi-secret outdoor area keeps things from being overly claustrophobic. The whole thing is some weird combination of trailer and hobbit hole.
The gallery is currently OPEN o.O! It can be visited at Clemence, 209/162/25.
