Site re-design, new music playlists up, and more…

Hiya folks,

It’s been awhile since I poked at my website, though here we are with a nice update to the theme of the site, the layout (a bit), and most importantly, all of the music pages for my published albums and unpublished works now have in-page playlists, so you can just listen to them from your web browser, or preview tunes quickly before downloading. I’m pretty excited about that. If you find any broken links anywhere (it happens!) let me know, and I’ll fix em.

You’ll notice the front page has a little slideshow showing album covers, a taste of my drawings, a sample of virtual world images, and mentions writings… I’ll be posting up some poems, song lyrics, and short stories to the site soon, along with links to art (well, more specifically, to flickr and deviant art sites where I’ll be posting more scanned images and what not)

For you social media folks, I’ve signed up to more social networks, and you can link to those directly from the front page, if you feel so inclined to check out what I’m doing elsewhere 😉

All the best,

Christopher / StarLord / ChrCal

Tusk video posted to Vimeo

In memory of Second Life’s Tusk sim (as created by Amberly Kinsella) from Christopher Calhoun on Vimeo.

Special thanks to everyone who contributed to this project, especially Amberly Kinsella, the original creator goddess of the world of Tusk!

Backstory:

Shortly before Tusk closed up, I began a machinima project to capture the beauty and roleplay experiences at Tusk (once a virtual world/sim in LindenLab’s SL grid)

However, the island was hit by a large meteor and sank into the virtual Linden grid oceans..

to rest somewhere in the abysmal depths..

along with hundreds of other forgotten worlds..

whose days are also lost to the madness of time…

Tusk will always be remembered though, her magick, her power, and the memories set there, that and the loving memory of my priestess Satoria Exonar, who has also since left the virtual worlds, seemingly never to return..

Thus, since a full-motion gorgeous HD Machinima extravaganza can not be finished at this time (sigh..)

may I present you the nearest equivalent — a motion slideshow set to an original score.

Music composed and performed live by me, editing by me in iMovie on the MacBook Pro.

THE HUNTER by ROXHARDCORE CYBERSTAR

(Guest Writer)
THE HUNTER;

WITH BODY POISED AND SENSES HONED I STALK MY ENEMY,
HIDING IN THE SHADOWS FOR ONLY MY EYES TO SEE,
DARKNESS IS MY LOVER, I RESIDE IN ITS EMBRACE,
PATIENTLY AWAITING THE APPEARANCE OF YOUR FACE,
TIS NOT WITH EGO I WAGE THIS FIGHT BUT ONLY FOR MY SURVIVAL,
WITH PATIENCE AS A VIRTUE I WAIT FOR YOUR ARRIVAL,
AS I SENSE YOU NEAR YOUR HEAVEN SENT ,
WITH STEALTH AND PRECISION I MAKE MY DENT,
LEAVING APON YOU A TASTE OF DEATH ,
AS YOU DRAW YOUR VERY LAST BREATH,
HOLDING IN MY ARMS YOUR LIFELESS SHELL,
A STEADY REMINDER OF MY LIVING HELL,
TWAS ONCE A CURSE BORN UNTO ME,
THAT I MUST DWELL AN ETERNITY.
