Gee, Keeme. What do you want to do tonight?

Putting us both behind the wheel of ANY moving vehicle never ends well.. it does always end with a nosedive into the nearest body of water, however.

Oh, crap! Watch out for that car!

Um… yeah. Maybe we should go before Chug or Radar come back.

Attack of the Pixies

Sometime in December, 2008

I really need to get whatever mysti tool Radar told me about that ejects someone from my house… There are two people outside circling it and trying to get in. My friend Keeme showed me a way to bypass the door and get inside right through the wall, LOL. I won’t repeat how he did it here, but I think it may be time to shop for a security orb. Its a little bit unnerving to see people trying so hard to get inside.

Speaking of Keeme… he came online again the other day and we spent a few hours exploring and getting into trouble. It started off with a motorcycle ride around some sim..

After that, he bought a helicopter and we flew around for awhile.. until we got into a bit of trouble. Somehow, we managed to crash the thing. I had my camera on mouselook at the time, and its pretty interesting to see yourself plummeting from the sky and into the ocean, haha. On our second attempt, I wound up tangled up in some trees on the side of a mountain, LOL. It was a blast. Even if Keeme is a dangerous driver. 😉 Eventually I started feeling a little bit of motion sickness, so we abandoned the helicopter and went shopping/exploring for awhile. He showed me some of his favorite spots and I showed him Botanical Gardens and the Bellagio. At the end of the night, he wanted to take the helicopter out for one last spin over a residental area. Apparently, ban lines and helicopters do not make a good combination. We crashed one more.. this time, the helicopter ended up wedged between a couple of buildings. Keeme and I landed in someone’s backyard. We were just getting our bearings and trying to figure out where we were, when we were attacked by some small, flying security.. pixies, or humming birds, or something.. I’m not sure what they were, but they surrounded me and were making high pitched sounds. I kept getting the message on my screen, “Nika Dreamscape, you better leave!” I got scared so I flew away.. Keeme said they swarmed him next and chased him from the yard, screaming “You are not on the list!” Lmao, that was the best time ever. I hope he comes back again sometime soon. 🙂

The first time I met Keeme..

I’ve been wanting to post on here for awhile, and start sharing some of my favorite stories and memories. I met Keeme in Second Life, so almost all of my posts will be centered around that, since that’s the main context I knew him in. I hope that’s ok- but I think Second Life was a huge part of who Keeme was. And my hope is that by sharing some of those moments here, it’ll give his real life friends and family a chance to see another part of him, a whole other world and community of friends who also loved and cared about him. I used to be a blogger back then, and later a podcaster. (He and I did a podcast together called Diamonds and Rust, which I’ll also share here.) I’m going to be sharing a lot of old posts from my blog, because so much of it was about Keeme. I’ll start with this entry, which was the very first time I ever met him.

December 2008

I was over on Podcast Island the other night while I was afk, and when I checked back again I noticed someone else was in the region. According to the mini map, it looked like they were coming my way, so I stuck around to see who it was. It turned out to be Keeme of the Keemecast podcast. I had actually heard of him before, his name pops up on other podcasts now and then. We got to talking and he turned out to be a lot of fun. He’s a really funny guy. He asked if I wanted him to show me some cool places, and conjured up his magic carpet. The first place we went was a sim called Midnight City, that seemed to be based after NYC. That place is too cool! I loved the cityscape, and the design and architecture looked really nice.

It turns out they have a lot of great shopping also- I went back the next night to explore it further and ended up spending a lot of time there.
The next place we went was Limbo. Following a path up a mountain, we entered a large castle type structure where they have lots of dragon avi’s. The people there were really cool, and it was neat seeing all the dragons. We hung around there for quite awhile before moving on to a huge conference center where he said some companies have meetings or training sessions. He was a lot of fun, and I ended up subscribing to his podcast the next day. Sadly, I haven’t seen him online again since that night. Maybe after the holidays are over I’ll bump into him again.
