I am so behind due to a surgery as a consequence of a small accident 2 weeks ago and the ART IN HATS - HATS IN ART event and this has a lot do to with reliability. For this event I collaborated with a team and I had to watch how they started to quarrel and one by one left the project. What really still let me staying in slight shock is that nobody had scruples to let me standing in the rain although I had nothing to do with their dramas. No, upon on that I am the bad guy now because I dared to insist in commitments. 2 times we had to postpone the opening, a catastrophe for a 100% person like me and at the end I stood more or less alone to finish the project. As much as I am happy that all turned out so good now, it is payed with anger and sadness this time. And I ask you: Of course we are here in Second Life to have fun. But is that really an excuse to take the own sensitivities more serious than commitments?
I bet you guess my answer. And so I went to LEA17 today and more are on my list. Pink Floyd belong to the greatest, most innovative and influential artists in music of the last century. What I like especially with this band is the live concerts of them as one can hear that aging is a gift for artists when they use it to really mature. The same old songs sound much deeper and more touching today. Solkide took motivs of their epic works and brought them to 3D. Of course the music stream is running Pink Floyd. I am still hearing it in SL while I am here writing. The guitar sounds make me almost crying. It was fun to sit on the Flying Pig, to have a ride though the work and to guess which songs the motifs are taken from. But I have to admit that I was thinking "Solkide, that is all fine. But where have you lost your good taste?" All was dark and blurred until....
