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.
