The Plan

  • Ezekiel Jones III said "hey, would any of you be interested in an extended project to catalogue all the museum gallerys in malton?"
  • xryanx1 said "It would be kinda boring, but then, day by day I grow weary of the sedentary life. I may partake in your quest Zeke." (7 hours and 51 minutes ago)
  • Ezekiel Jones III said "see, the wiki lists 250 museums (http://wiki.urbandead.com/index.php/List_of_Museums), and 18 types of exhibits, but ther is currently no resource for knowing what can be found where." (6 hours and 41 minutes ago)
  • Ezekiel Jones III said "such a resource would be handy when seeking out decor for the library, and, i believe within it's spirit of collecting and cataloging knowledge and culture"
  • gimbo said "I could possibly be up for helping out with a museum tour, I think..." (3 hours and 49 minutes ago)
  • Lilandryl said "I'd be happy to help w/ the museum tour...I could do the northern-most horizontal line of suburbs...."
  • gimbo said "I don't really care where I go - give me a list of museums and I'll visit them." (29 seconds ago)
  • Ezekiel Jones III said "ok then, i had origionally though that we'd devide this into horizontal strips, but it does'nt really matter, so long as everybody takes 20 suberbs." (2 hours and 34 minutes ago)
  • Ezekiel Jones III said "buddahgazelle; as you have taken first pick, you can cover everything between Grigg Heights, and Williamsville, that leaves the Dakerstown-Havercroft, Chancelwood-Starlingtown, and Roftwood-Miltown blocks," (2 hours and 29 minutes ago)
  • Ezekiel Jones III said "as well as the strip down the middle between East Boundwood and Wyke Hills open to whoever wants them." (2 hours and 28 minutes ago)
  • Ezekiel Jones III said "i'm willing to personally take on the Dakerstown-Havercroft block, as it looks like the most dangerous, but i'll wait for everyone else to have their pick first." (2 hours and 27 minutes ago)
  • Yiddish killed a zombie. (2 hours and 23 minutes ago)
  • Ezekiel Jones III said "as to notations in the wiki, i think we should keep it simple for now. go to http://wiki.urbandead.com/index.php/List_of_Museums and copy the relevant portion of each museum's description (ex: …currently displaying a selection of European art.)" (2 hours and 22 minutes ago)
  • Ezekiel Jones III said "to a sub bullet under each museum's entry (notation is **). keep in mind that each one is listed twice, first alphabetially, then by suburb," (2 hours and 21 minutes ago)
  • Ezekiel Jones III said "i might think up a beter template later, so keep you eye on the article's discussion page, and please keep a copy of your own incase the wiki copy gets screwed up. now i'm down to my last ap, so i'll be here for at least the next 25 hours in case anybody" (2 hours and 18 minutes ago)
  • Ezekiel Jones III said "has any questions. or thoughts on the project. that said, goodluck." (2 hours and 17 minutes ago)
  • SFYO installed a generator in the building. (2 hours and 15 minutes ago)
  • ignoti said "Thanks Lil!" (2 hours and 7 minutes ago)
  • Ezekiel Jones III said "oh, and three more things: 1 some individual museums have wikipages which list the exhibit, might be useful but please look with your own eyes to be sure. 2 update the building description list with new ones. 3 lets all keep in contact via mobile phone." (1 hour and 44 minutes ago)
  • You heard a loud groaning from very close by. (29 minutes ago)
  • Lilandryl said "we should have at least one POC here in the library that we can call w/our descriptions, so the people here can also know." (12 minutes ago)
  • Lilandryl said "Honestly, I was going to take all 10 northern suburbs: Dakerstown - Dulston" (11 minutes ago)
  • Lilandryl said "Also, I was thinking of trying to search for at least one item per museum...if possible" (10 minutes ago)
  • Dr Kimba said "I'd be happy to stay, I have a phone...where's the tower in this suburb?" (8 minutes ago)
  • Dr Kimba said "Someone please strengthen the barricades...I'm too sleepy to do it." (6 minutes ago)
  • gimbo said "OK. I'll take Chancelwood to Starlington, minus the top row if Lilandryl's doing that. So that's Raine Hills to Starlington. Could even make it Raines Hills to Dentonside if that'd help." (31 minutes ago)
  • gimbo said "I'd better go find myself a mobile phone first though. Never needed one before. :-) Good luck, everyone!"
  • Ezekiel Jones III said "branagan and dr kimba, we would be most greatful for both of your help" (11 hours and 19 minutes ago)
  • Dr Kimba said "Gimbo just said: I've just done the Pretty Museum in Pimbank (African glassware) and updated the wiki and the talk page. I'm gonna spend 25 AP searching in each location. Don't know if wiki format is as desired, but it's a start. I started a talk page too" (4 hours and 44 minutes ago)

The Journal

18 April, 2007

19 April, 2007

  • Sleeping in the Library, gathering strength for the crossing to Shore Hills. Gimbo reports finding African glassware in Pimbank's Pretty Museum. I'm thinking about altering my original plan so as to spend more time (25AP?) searching each museum for as long as I am alive.
  • Voyage has begun. In Stanbury Village I observe ninety zombies outside the southwest corner of the Nichols Mall. No samples taken. Other than that horde, the Village seems to be a quiet, well-barricaded suburb.
  • Galbraith Hills is gray and desolate. The Rhoden Museum is the only lit building I've seen in the whole suburb.
  • Arrived in Shore Hills, also a grey and foreboding suburb. Having miscalculated the amount of effort it would take to make the crossing, I lack sufficient AP to get to The Spurway Hotel. Instead, I'm overnighting in Wadham Cinema, an extremely heavily barricaded and almost-empty building on the suburb's edge. Next door, The Hardinge Arms have three zombies sleeping with survivors. Here in Wadham I share the dark auditorium with The Swan and Iluliaq. Swan is a Warrior and Iluliaq a Black Beret. I suspect Iluliaq may be Finnish or Estonian. I greet Swan and Iluliaq, tell them of my mission, and invite them to the Talent Show. Iluliaq informs me that she's a harpoon sharpshooter:
  • Iluliaq said "Hello, buddhagazelle! You are the first QSL member I've met, be welcome! What sort of talents will you be showcasing? I'm an excllent markswoman with a harpoon...." (58 minutes ago)
  • Iluliaq said "I've not ventured further southwest than this since the Big Bash, so I cannot speak for most of the SW suburbs. Locally, however, you may wish to speak to the Descript Survivors in the Hardinge next door. They're a strange alliance of Buffy fans..." (1 hour and 32 minutes ago)
  • Iluliaq said "...and vigilantes, who tend to spend their entire energy bantering and drinking, yet somehow have held down this area through some of the worst times. I could not speak for the nuances of their linguistic habits, however, being a non-native speaker myself" (1 hour and 27 minutes ago)
  • After sharing some stale, slightly green water, we go to sleep on the sagging cinema seats.

20 April, 2007

  • I journey onwards to The Thornhill Museum, its collection of work by conceptual artists now thick with dust. I find:
  1. 2 conceptual paintings.
  1. A Conceptual Painting.

21 April, 2007

  • From the Hewlet I go southeast to The Burrows Museum, its selection of African art ransacked by looters. The door is blasted open and cold night air wafts in. As I construct a barricade I search the rubble and find:
  1. 2 torn paintings.
  2. 2 African paintings.
  • From the Burrows I travel northwest to The Harrold Museum, its unusual exhibition of impressionist puppets now thick with dust. The Museum appears to be a safehouse for the Bandit Queens. I introduce myself, invite them to the Talent Show, and collapse on the floor, exhausted.

22 April, 2007

  • Having met Whiskey Dick, I search the Harrold. Diligent looting, however, reveals no artifacts.
  • On to The Uzzell Museum, its collection of conceptual sculpture now thick with dust. I find three conceptual sculptures and go to sleep. Tomorrow I will search thirteen more times.

23 April, 2007

24 April, 2007

  • I travel on to Greentown and The Deed Museum, its exhibition of tapestries ransacked by looters. Two survivors greet me here, and I invite them to the Talent Show. I find a Torn Tapestry and fall asleep. Tomorrow I will search sixteen more times.

25 April, 2007

26 April, 2007

  • I travel on to The Cornelius Museum, its collection of work by conceptual artists now thick with dust. A young zombie guards the museum rubble, so I am unable to search. I ask the zombie politely to leave temporarily, and then go sleep in a nearby building.
  • In the Cornelius I find two conceptual paintings and three fire-damaged paintings.

  • In the Beacham I meet Ishwar of the Poopypants Zombie Brigade. He welcomes me to Lockettside:
  • Ishwar said "Well shit the bed! a QSG member all the way down in these parts!" (8 hours and 18 minutes ago)
  • Ishwar said "i just happen to be good friends with a Literate or two myself." (8 hours and 17 minutes ago)
  • Ishwar said "What i can tell you of this here Museum is that it is maintained by the Nobel Ran Valiant." (8 hours and 15 minutes ago) ...and again. (8 hours and 13 minutes ago)
  • Ishwar said "We've been doing our best to lively up the place as of late and Mz. Nipple over there is quite the gal too." (8 hours and 12 minutes ago)
  • Ishwar said "i'm sure if you look around a bit you'll find an African Painting or two to take with you; or if you like the Browne Museum next door has a nice selection of tapestries." (8 hours and 6 minutes ago)
  • Ishwar installed a French tapestry in the building. (8 hours and 6 minutes ago)
  • Ishwar said "Nice." (8 hours and 6 minutes ago)
  • I walk next door to the Browne Museum, its exhibition of tapestries ransacked by looters. I find a mouldering tapestry, a French tapestry, two torn tapestries, and a print of a tapestry. Tomorrow I will move on to South Blythville's Dommett Museum.

29 May, 2007

  • In the Browne:

* Ran Valiant said "Hell, Buddhagazelle! You are most welcome to this side of the city. I would really appreciate if you come and check our exhibitions. In the second floor of the Beacham Museum you will find a very fine collection of surrealist art." (6 days ago)

  • Ran Valiant said "It took a while to collect it during the current crisis. But being sieged by zombies is no excuse to stop learning about art and culture. Anyway, It's nice to know that you guys are interested in us. Please invite your fellow scholars to come." (6 days ago)
  • Ran Valiant said "I would love to discuss byzantine matters with all of you. Just be sure to stay out of the way of the Black Mesa group. Check their wiki page to see proof of their PK spree against promoters of the culture. I don't know why, but they just hate museums." (6 days ago)

  • shadow2 installed a French tapestry in the building. (17 hours and 39 minutes ago)

  • I sleep long and hard, and wake up a zombie. In my dreams, however, I recall a friendly zombie attempting to warn me away from death:
  • A zombie (Avenir) brought down the last of the barricades. (2 days ago)

14 June, 2007

  • I've been enjoying quiet rest as a zombie, relaxing and recording their speech. I have the great pleasure of encountering Wolfgang Puck.
  • A zombie (Wolfgang Puck) said "GRAAAAAHahahaha! Mrh-gaaz! Bananabranz!" (16 hours and 10 minutes ago)

  • I go south to Crooketon and the Lawler Museum, its exhibition of pottery now thick with dust. The museum is so badly ransacked that searching is impossible. I introduce myself to two friendly zombies-- qber and a nameless. I ask them to assist me in repairing the building, and retire elsewhere to sleep. Tomorrow I will return to the museum, and hope to find it in a condition where searching will be possible.
