read the February issue of rez in Issuu:
We welcome you to the February issue of rez with an
inspiring story about someone bitten. It took very little to convince Cassie
Parker that she could realize in a virtual real what she had so successfully
manifested in her real life passion - - a creative space devoted entirely to
the artist - - a sim called TerpsiCorps Isle, named after the muse of dance,
Terpsichore. Many of us have dreams, but
far fewer have the willpower to realize them in such a grand style. With the opening of this magical sim, Cassie
proves that dreams do come true. Never
will an artist feel more nurtured, surrounded with tranquility to settle the
mind, but also the tools to create, in the form of state-of-the-art rehearsal
and staging space. Cassie has gathered
an array of talent to create one of the grandest theaters on the grid. Chrissy Rhiano deserves a special shout out
for her superlative build and Lantana Silverweb provides sumptuous photos for
us in Cassie’s cover story, TerpsiCorps Isle – The Evolution of an Arts Sim. Amy Inawe delivers a powerful and unnerving
poem, Dark Confidences, about strangers in the night, saying perhaps more than they should. And by now, we all know that Art Blue is very
much alive. Witness his amazing conclusion to his study of past, present and
future, Final Blue: The Origin. Never has a more original writer graced the
pages of rez. We’re lucky to be able to bring his vision to you, alive or dead.
We have an abundance of riches this issue with two pieces by Merope Madrigal,
the first is Mule Deer, a sensitive study of a beautiful and furtive animal.
Mariner Trilling’s sensational And You Danced in the Streets of New Orleans
brings the vibrant Bourbon Street alive, and lets us feel the unfettered joy of
wild abandon in a city where anything goes. Jullianna Juliesse follows with a
timely and wonderful poem, Demon Dialing the Eagles, made all the more poignant
with the passing of Glenn Frye. Wonder what’s up with the Wishbone mission?
Jami Mills brings more to light in the fourth installment, Wishbone One: Grace
of God, where the AI Grace reveals more depth than we suspected. Lift off is
only days away. Adrian Blair returns with a charming and mystifying poem The
Last Magician that simply takes our breath away with the snap of a silk scarf.
Merope Madrigal closes with Boys I’d Like to Fuck #4 (Robert Downey, Jr.),
containing her thoughts about how nice it might have been, for both her and
RDJ, had events transpired slightly differently.
