The Sound of Bones

The sound of the bones is soothing. They clatter gently in the evening breeze, each touch a hollow sound, echoing into the night. 
conversations4bsThey know things, the bones. The older they are, the more they know. Secrets long forgotten, secrets taken to the grave, secrets buried deeper than the graves ever were.

conversations2bs

If you listen well, if you can hear with more than your ears, you can catch their whispers, the faded words, the forgotten languages.

conversations5bs

If you listen to the silences between the hollow sounds you will understand. Understand and be able to ask questions. Ask, answer and to have whole quiet conversations within the dead echos of the worlds; ours and all the others.

Gothulon Travel

“Explore the dark reaches of the universe! Come see the space bunnies of Fluffzoid 8!” That’s what the ad said. Absolutely irresistible. There was an adventure to be had! Space bunnies to see! No one said a thing about waiting in line. At least there were comfy gear chairs.

travelagency1bs

“Excuse me, sir, I would like to book an adventure trip to Fluffzoid 8. Yes, I’ll pay extra for guaranteed space bunny observation. Yes, I’ll pay extra for the camouflage cloak to get really close to them. Yes, I’ll pay extra for… what life insurance? They’re fluffy bunnies! Lepus galaxicus pythonae! Why would I… oh alright, if it’s mandatory.”

travelagency2bs

“Holotickets securely marked on the genetic display, it’s time for an adventure! The trip seems to take place in adorably archaic saucers of beam transport, guess it involves close experiences of the star systems on the way.”

travelagency3bs

“Now to prepare these elderberries as bait and all will be absolutely perfect!”

Gothulon Travel at Futurewave might or might not be able to send you to interesting locations, it all depends on the amount of imagination in your genetic compilation. It is fun to visit, regardless! In case you find yourself confused: it is not a shop, it’s an amusement location for hanging out and taking photos in.

A lot of Gothulon Travel is made out of items for sale in Futurewave, like the usb2 tree by 22769 ~ [bauwerk], gear chairs by NeverWish and small flying saucers by Bliensen + MaiTai.

Vanda de Galaxiae

The Blue Orchid of Ganymede, the Andromedean Nova, the radiant Vanda de Galaxiae is the indisputable governess of the kinetic arts.

orkidea1bs

Her performances hail back to the ancient movements of what was once referred to as ‘dance’, but elevates it to the current standard with the aid of precision programming of her custom-designed body.

orkidea3bs

The marvels of Vanda’s body provide it motions not usually available to humanoid life, showing that the only limit she has is her boundless imagination.

orkidea4bs

The lighting is especially constructed blue spectrum from Betelgeuse, a colour palette so loud that de Galaxiae never uses audio-additions in her shows, relying on the shivering humming sensations the blue spectrum causes within bio-organisms.

Vanda de Galaxiae performs at the Orchestration Nebula on the eleventh unit of the local day cycle. Permission codes still available, check your personal holo service.

Departure

“I can smell the change in the air: not unlike autumn it’s a sudden crisp feel, a moment of clarity, the sharp realization before the haze of hibernation. The spin of the Spiral is reaching the last rounds before the transformation begins.”

departure1bs
“The trains are still awaiting for the last of the passengers and I should hurry, I do not want to get caught in that last twirl of no return. I used to, I think. Surely I did not leave the Spiral on my first shift? I wish I could remember the cycles before these last two, but that is the Spinner’s Nature: there is only the Spiral, and the Spiral is always Now.”
departure4bs
“I like traveling now, I like being able to remember beyond the immediate existence, I like being able to look forward further than the end of the current Dance. That said, I also like to be able to return home, for somewhere within the twists and turns and changes of the Spiral I came into being.”
departure3bs
“Sometimes I wonder if they are always the same, the people. If the Spiral changes only the surface, if the cores are the same, eternally dancing within its serpentine rise. I must compare, document, research. The next time.”

A Clockwork Spiral is turning its last spins and will vanish from our reality on October 1st at 6am SLT. Go catch its last moments before it fades for a year! I have had such fun with the return of the journalist and even more so: being able to see others get into the spirit of the Spiral, wander around, shapeshift accordingly and simply enjoy themselves.

At the Core

Landing at the data core was a remarkable experience. It’s surprising how intact it still is despite all the stubborn attempts of the surrounding world trying to cover it up, grow around it, suffocate it, hide it away… who knows how the global plantmind works.

headhunter4csI managed to connect rather easily to it, just had to make sure not to use any tech newer than from Before Growth. It still had perfectly operational tracking parameters in its routines.

headhunter1csIt even had galactic sniffers in it still. Oh yes it did. Intergalactic location coordinators sure made the work of law enforcement easy once upon a time. Just like they now eased my task. Thank you, Ancients!

headhunter2csNow the only problem is to decide which one of the targets to go after first…

Almost all of the look is available in Futurewave that still keeps zooming on at light speed. The headhunter here consists of an outfit by Graves, boots, wings and cut cables in the back by Death Row Designs (DRD), skin by Pink Fuel, eyes from ~*By Snow*~ and earpieces and neural net by Chaos, Panic, and Disorder. The typing overwriter discs by Stuck Products are a fun freebie and the masks by Blue Falcon Industries can be won in a gacha, all of this in Futurewave. The hair and hairbase by Adoness are available in The Thrift Shop.

Code for Club

There’s this club, you see. A really shiny one. Shiny, but dark. Just the way I like it. I want to get in, but it’s early. Way too early. So what I did was called my friend who has certain… experience in adjusting robot protocols and gave him the bouncer’s code.

spaceclub3csThe bad news is that the bouncers are damn well coded. It took at least quarter of a unit before the ‘apologies citizen you are not authorized in this area please revolve and advance in another direction‘ litanies ceased.

spaceclub1csBut after that it was all smooth flying! My friend even snuck in a few codes for dancing! Not particularly bendy dancer, but very firm grip.

spaceclub2csPsst, while I keep him distracted, all of you can come in and party any time you like!

The best part of this all is of course that the club is real and it’s really a club! Club Gothika’s Mobile Unit in Futurewave is fully functional, operational and such things and you can find their schedule when you scroll to the bottom of this post. Today (Monday) there’s both the builder and the organizer of the whole glowing glory playing for you one after the other!

Monday 2/17 :  8-10pm SLT – Lokii Violet (Monday Night Spiral)
Monday 2/17: 10-midnight SLT – Bronxelf (The Monday Night Dark and Sticky)

The bouncer might not be present, but who knows, he could! He is actually one of Chip Midnight’s droids for sale in the event. Nicole Twigvald of Smileyorc graciously agreed to transform into one for the purposes of pictures, post and entertainment. The sneaky club visitor is wearing mostly :{MV}: (dress and boots), GALLACTIC (body suit pants pretending to be tights), Pin Me Down (eyes and makeup), Beautiful Freak (lipstick & nails), Chaos, Panic and Disorder (ear pieces and bracelets), .:ellabella:. (chest piercing) and Pink Fuel (skin), all available in Futurewave. The hair by Analog Dog is available in Collabor88.
