Kurk Mumfuzz presents

  • * * * * * * L I G H T S O V E R A M E R I C A * * * * * * * A Particle Lights Event @ Calas Galadhon’s Truck’s Trailer Park TONIGHT!
  • Sunday, 3 July 2022 at 7:00 PM SLT

P L E A S E N O T E -> Show begins at 7:00 pm SLT but please arrive at least 15 minutes early for a better experience as I will be flashing textures into your viewer cache. This pre-show display will help you to see the particles more immediately when I throw them…

Please note also that the particle display works so much better when I am not competing with heavily scripted avatars for the sim server’s attention, and that is why I ask you to please reduce your script count and complexity by as much as your vanity will allow…


If this is not your first experience with particles then you probably have your settings just as you want them…

If you are new to particle lights or not sure, don’t worry. Kurk’s lights don’t require any special settings. Just make sure you have the following set in your Graphics Preferences (these suggestions are primarily for Firestorm users)…

-> Draw distance set to 256 meters up to 512 (if you can)
-> Graphics Quality set to High or Ultra (if you can)
-> Max. particle count set from 4096 to 8192 (if you can)
-> Render Attached Particles (checked in Rendering tab)

Also, set your viewer to “Use Shared Environment” (World > Environment > Use Shared Environment)…

Be sure to render Kurk Mumfuzz fully…

P L E A S E N O T E : I should warn anyone who might be vulnerable to any kind of seizures (such as epilepsy) that I can create a lot of bright flashy visual noise and this particle display should probably be avoided. I strongly recommend that anyone who might suffer any kind of seizure should not attend this event…

Finally, a word of appreciation to Ty Tenk and Truck Meredith and all the friends of Calas Galadhon. Please be generous with your donations to Calas Galadhon…

This program is a celebration of America and the American Dream. We don’t always get it right. But our core values and intentions are good and right…

And one afterthought from historian Sarah Churchwell:

“The American Dream” has always been about the prospect of success, but 100 years ago, the phrase meant the opposite of what it does now. The original “American Dream” was not a dream of individual wealth; it was a dream of equality, justice and democracy for the nation. The phrase was repurposed by each generation, until the Cold War, when it became an argument for a consumer capitalist version of democracy. Our ideas about the “American Dream” froze in the 1950s. Today, it doesn’t occur to anybody that it could mean anything else.
