I may have mentioned my old home of Murray once or twice but as I stopped going there some time ago I’ve not heard anything about the small spit of land that was once so important to me. Until a few nights ago that is when I received an IM from my old mate Douglas Quinn…
“Have you seen Murray?” he asked.
“Err, not recently,” said I somewhat confused.
“The Moles are doing it up! It’s all gone Tiki!”
Now let me make a couple of things clear, I’m happy the Moles are tarting up Murray and I have nothing against Tiki. But do I think Murray should be a Tiki info hub? Not really. But then am I mad that it certainly looks like it will be? Nah it’s all good. Let’s face it, since the Lab closed the Murray infohub and removed all the seats and signs in late ‘06/early ’07 Murray has been nothing but grass, dirt, a few mangy trees and a shit load of griefing. Hell, even when we (finally) got the Lindens to come over and shut down the build & script perms on the land Murray so the weapons-headz couldn’t cage and warp us all to buggery and back, the place was still only as pretty as a pig, and a pretty plain pig at that.
But having said all that, I can’t help thinking that the old girl deserves better than to be dolled up like some kind of set for “America’s Next Love Island!” so I hope the Moles treat her gently. Still, at least she’ll be home to a whole new cohort of people who will love her for what she is, not what she was. And being slap bang in the middle of some of the oldest builds in SL, I hope they explore and discover more about their new world like I did. Like I say, it’s all good 🙂
Farewell Murray, you served us well. In your place let Murray 3.0 rise from the sands and may everyone who finds it anew be served with a drink in a coconut husk to celebrate its new life! 😀
