Where the girls were: Glam World 1/13/08
The opening of Torrid Midnight’s exhibition at Glam World was the place to be yesterday. “Sure, Burgess,” you’re thinking. “Don’t bullshit us. Your fiancée dragged you to some godawful art opening and you don’t have anything cool to write about today because you didn’t do anything cool and you’re just trying to cover it up.” Wrong. While the rest of you were out tooling around some sim being flogged by RL marketers from Hollywood or Japan, and pretending it was actually worthwhile, I was where all the hot women were.
Whenever I hear guys complain they can’t find a girl, I think of course you can’t, you’re probably looking in the wrong places. The girls are not in the new Bassmaster’s sim trading tips on homemade fish structures. Sure, lots of women like to fish. But they don’t do it in groups. If you want a target-rich environment, you go where they gather. Just click on the photo above and take a gander at the large size. The female-to-male ratio is 10:1. And I took this photo right at the start. It got much more crowded than this.
Torrid Midnight. She gave a gracious interview explaining how she works from the concept to the final piece and set several of her photographs for sale. One of them would be an original gift for your girlfriend, or a good way to impress someone on a second or third date.
The always lovely Gillian Waldman, editor of Deux Looks, without whom I would not have known about the event. She conducted a great interview with Torrid. At least I think it was great. I have to admit I was distracted by the artwork and the hot pixels, and was taking a lot of photographs.
Minnu Palen and Thora Charron. Minnu is the designer of the incredible Minnu Model free skin I’ve been sporting lately. Don’t worry, Minnu, I’m going to go out and buy one from you as soon as I cobble together enough dj tips.
Antonia Marat, the brilliance behind Artilleri. I was wearing a shirt she designed. Of course, someone else told me to buy it. But still, I almost felt like I had taste. I could taste taste.
DJ Duckyfresh Watanabe kept the crowd entertained.
Mygdala March and as she says “a random cool looking dude.” He obviously didn’t make much of an impression beyond this, because if he did, she would have remembered his name. Sable Slade is in the background, silent and gorgeous as ever.
Bongo Oldbull, co-owner of the Doll City sim. He knew where the action was.
Here’s proof that I was there. Staring at Callie Cline‘s carburetor, of course. She went blond a few minutes later. Probably thinking I wouldn’t recognize her.
And now you’re probably saying, “Okay, Burgess, I should have been there. But that still doesn’t explain what you were doing there; you’ve already got a girlfriend.” If I hadn’t gone, I wouldn’t be able to let you know you missed it. I was taking one for the team. Now, can someone please tell me about the I Am Legend sim?
