Scout Detritus — SLebrity Autobiography

by Scout Detritus

“We chased all the Proks outta there, started buildin’ shit, they said they liked us, and that we could stay and make our money…”

I started SL as a confused and bewildered wide eyed noob as I realized that SL was an endless possibility sandbox…I could be and do anything I wanted from minute to minute and it was awesome. It has changed so much since I first landed here, but I still have a lot of the same friends, as well as the same sorts of interests. SL keeps getting better every day.

My name comes from my favorite literary heroine in Harper Lee’S To Kill a Mockingbird…To me it is fitting…I think of myself as an adventurous and giving person that is well liked in many of the social spaces I travel to in SL. I have friends that are furries, goreans, and pubbies…and I have strived for tolerance of everyone I meet. I am hardly ever complacent myself, I spend most of my time between two shapes and hundreds of different avatar’s and looks depending on what or where or even who I am at any given moment.

In the few years I have been playing this game, I have owned and built several sims, started a few businesses, joined in Roleplay, and designed, built, and coded anything I ever dreamed of bringing to life on screen (lol Ravenglass Fridge). I am both a W-Hat goon and a Woodbury Channer…I believe that in order to enjoy SL you have to do whatever makes you happy, and I pick and choose my life accordingly.


I recently donated my sim Longcat as a sandbox/e-home locale for the members of the awesome Woodbury university…of which I have many connections with in RL, I know many of the educators (its summer rite nao) on the project personally and have been delighted in the changes and direction Woodbury has been moving in lately…Its always exciting to be a part of something as unique and pioneering as WU, especially during these web 2.0 times. (like so meta)


I also wanted to say that I am about to Leave SL until early November. RL responsibility will take me away from ANY contact with a computer (or cell phone)…and I know that when I return, the crazy world we all inhabit will be here waiting for me, somewhere in the wires…a place with Witness X baaawwwring at whatever is fresh and young, Prokofy playing the SL Ann Coulter, Intlibber/Ansche, and the landbarons buying and selling dreamworlds, Fashionistas blogging, Furries thinking all hoomans hate them, SL armies dividing and fighting, all of the uninformed players complaining that LL doesnt do enough (they obviously do not remember telehubs), What and Woodbury pushing the envelope of good taste, and Everyone on the outside looking in, wishing that they knew WHAT THE FUCK is going on and how to cash in on it.


I would like to give some shout outs to my friends: Les White, Azwethinkweiz Barrett, Tizzers Foxchase, DarthBlueAfro Cummings, Phr0zen Katsu, Roberta Beauchamp, Redd Columbia, Trebesan Clary, Alyx Stoklitsky, Kiddoh Korobase, Bridget Zeitlich, Shaun Altman, Madalena Rossini, Zara Linden, Cam Mitchell, Greenlantern Excelsior, At0m0 Beerbaum, Petey…the groups: What, Woodbury and the SLMRA…and everyone I wish I had room to mention.

/me waves!

    ITT: Scout gets tired of my Laziness.

    I like how the third shot contains Rodney Linden quietly chatting away with us, mid sparta-raid.

    Rodney Linden is Rodney Caston aka – the guy who made Megatokyo, I wonder if Linden plans to hire Tycho Brahe or Scott Kurtz next?

    I imagine Tycho has better taste than to be in SL. Scott, on the other hand…

    Scout Detritus is one of the big reasons Woodbury has any toehold on SL at all – he gave his sim to Tizzers Foxchase to run (who can’t manage to stay online, due to being permabanned, along with Trebesan Clary who was banned for using CopyBot to help IntLibber build up Woodbury Sea). Tizzers closed Madelena out of decisions about how Longcat should be run, while at the same time denouncing Scout as “yesterdays news” in his Skype chats with the Woodbury people, and said he was “kicking Scout to the curb”, and that “his time is over”.

    Great friends you’ve got there, Scout. You’ve been had.

    @Witness X:


    Woodbury has Two sims of its own. As for Scout, he is IN THE SKYPE CHAT.

    DURR FUCKING HURR, you fail.

    Witness X, there is no conspiracy here or evil plan to make everybody’s second life miserable as you so like to imply with your constant negativism about Woodbury. Woodbury has made its fair share of mistakes in the past, but your incessant need to consistently barrage the comments with half-truths and skewed facts is extremely detrimental to your credibility (or all the Witness X’s for that matter). Let’s take a gander at some of your accusations.

    -”Scout Detritus is one of the big reasons Woodbury has any toehold on SL at all”

    Yes and no. Woodbury existed without a permanent location for almost a year. It is the people that make Woodbury, not some plot of e-grass.

    -”he gave his sim to Tizzers Foxchase to run”

    Wrong. He donated the sim to the school of Media, Culture, and Design at Woodbury University. It will be around long after I graduate.

    -”along with Trebesan Clary”

    Although the Trebesan was permanently banned, he has returned to Second Life as Merato Zilz with the blessing of Linden Lab and the governance team.

    -”Tizzers closed Madelena out of decisions about how Longcat should be run”

    Madelena voluntarily left Woodbury after moving back to the UK this summer. She is still an adviser on the project and will continue to assist us on PR related issues. She is also one of my best friends in real life.

    -”while at the same time denouncing Scout as “yesterdays news” in his Skype chats with the Woodbury people, and said he was “kicking Scout to the curb”, and that “his time is over.”

    Scout Detritus is someone that is dear to me in real life and is now closely integrated with the real Woodbury University (Where he will be competing his masters degree). He is not going away anytime soon.

    I typically refrain from replying to your rubbish, but I found this outrageous enough to merit a response.

    Love, Tiz.

    Woodbury. The never ending punch line. Grow the fuck up.

  16. At0m0 Beerbaum

    Sep 15th, 2008

    I laugh at how many people get BUTTHURT over Woodbury.

    That’s why Woodbury is such a “bad thing” and people scream at Tizzers’ name being mentioned. People make it out as a bad thing and let themselves get offended. What has Woodbury done to any of you? some claim it raids. The hell it does. some people who were members of the group (and are no longer) raided. Much of that was when Woodbury had a huge open door policy. Now we’re a bit more picky.
    The bad stuff you hear is mostly sock puppetry and certain individuals who either complain about everything that isn’t their own little world view or their own controlled situation. Beyond that are people who will blindly follow someone else’s word.

    It’s much like starting a rumor about someone in High School, a nasty one.

    I could say someone is a pedophile over and over again, and let it spread until a majority of people thought it was true. No one would believe the accused at all because if so many people believe it it must be true, right?

    In short, stop being sheeple.

    Looks like this particular Witness X is probably Maldy, as while Kalel is usually the one posing as X, he generally doesnt lie so badly as this. Maldy is the other primary Witness X bullshitter.

    Don’t worry though, you’re loved by trolls and griefers. loved how a child loves to smash a turtle with a hammer.

    “Looks like this particular Witness X is probably Maldy, as while Kalel is usually the one posing as X, he generally doesnt lie so badly as this. Maldy is the other primary Witness X bullshitter.”

    IntLibber flailing cluelessly away, as usual. I’ve never been Kalel or Maldy. Oh, pro-tip – nobody believes anything you say anymore, IntLibber, you’ve been thoroughly debunked. We even know about your upcoming audit. But you don’t yet. Have fun.

    I got it right, she was sleeping on his couch. So that explains why Tizzers passed his class.

    scout, it takes a real man to do what you are doing, god bless you in Iraq
    (103rd infantry tango battalion company B) and I hope you kill as many towel heads as you borked furries, and i mean that dude.

    so many nights went by that i didn’t get to tell you how i really felt about you bro… and now, I guess the thought of you and a bunch of sweaty dudes sleeping in tight quarters…the smell of desert sand and sweaty balls in the air… well it’s more than i can take guy.

    you showed me that just because i’m a dude, it doesn’t mean i can’t slap on some pink hair, and do stuff to other dudes who also have pink hair ( virtual or otherwise) they call us woodbury fags, but that’s a term you helped me embrace.

    i love you

    p.s. griefing saves lives

    Lol audit eh? More bullshit of course. The only people who have lost all credibility is X and the other spandexfags at JLU.

    SLCC was a blast and the one universal opinion we found there was that everybody now knows that the JLU are a bunch of lying griefing losers in spandex. The one member of the JLU there got a chance to sit down with us and find out the truth about whats been going on.

    Woodburys suite party was a big success, it was at the same time as the Dublin party, cept Dublin tried charging 9 bucks a beer. Woodburys booze was free, and the crowds came and got a chance to meet Professor Ed Clift, Dean of the School of Media, Culture, and Design at WU, along with Tizzers, Trebesan, Berta, Scout, and myself (Shaun Altman arrived the next day). Everybody got a chance to meet the WU delegation and learn that, yes, WU really is a real university, really is accredited, and yes, really is in SL, contrary to the JLU lies.

    Just like in SL, WU traffic at SLCC was the highest on the grid! More people came to our party than attended most of the education track seminars.

    We had so much booze left over we supplied Nexeus Fatales party the next night, and the pool party at the hotel pool the next day (til an afro-suited hotel security guy came and Closed The Pool (Nicole and Trinity LOLed).

    Summed up, in 4 words: Lindens <3 Woodburys Booze

  31. Witness X

    Sep 19th, 2008

    LOLOL – they just told you what you wanted to hear so you’d give them all that free booze, you idiot! I was there, I saw what was going on. I was in the suite, drinking your booze and listening to the bullshit.

  32. Witness X

    Sep 19th, 2008

    Oh, and good job getting thrown out of the pool with your booze.

  33. Witness X

    Sep 19th, 2008

    Oh and FREE BOOZE != Woodbury’s a real university in SL.

    In RL, it has about a third the attendance of the smallest city college within a 50 mile radius.

    Accredited? Yah. Just barely. Most of the rest of its accreditation is low grade or worthless. If you want to learn to arrange furniture, it’s accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation. It’s main accreditor handles places like Guam and handles mostly high schools.


    It’s a diploma mill.

    Then post a transcript Witness. If you were there, you could outline what was discussed easily, couldn’t you?

  35. IntLibber Brautigan

    Sep 19th, 2008

    Once again, Witness X gets caught in a massive and obvious lie.

    Woodbury’s accreditation:

    “Woodbury University is accredited by:

    The Senior Commission of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC: 985 Atlantic Avenue, Suite 100; Alameda, CA 94501; 510-748-9001). WASC granted Woodbury its original regional accreditation in 1961.

    Woodbury University is approved by the Postsecondary Commission, California Department of Education.

    In 1994, the architecture program was accredited by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB).

    The School of Business received its accreditation from the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) Spring 1998.

    In 1991 the Interior Architecture Program was accredited by the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (formerly known as the Foundation for Interior Design Education and Research or FIDER).”

    So, whats next for the next batch of X bullshit?

    Witness you really need to lurk moar….

    WASC Accreditation

    Woodbury University is accredited by the Senior Commission of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). WASC granted Woodbury its original regional accreditation in 1961.

    Woodbury University is currently in the midst of its reaccreditation process with the Western Associaton of Schools and Colleges. All WASC-accredited schools must undergo this process every five years.

    As a part of this process, we have created a website containing links to materials which are not only informative of the process, but documents which have been and are being created out of the process. The website will be updated on a regular basis, so check back often to stay informed of our progress. To visit the website, please follow the link below:

    Woodbury University Reaccreditation Website

    Of major interest to the community is Woodbury University’s Institutional Proposal. As of 11-30-2005, the document was passed without revision by WASC. You can view the document by following the link provided below:

    Woodbury University’s Institutional Proposal

    We are currently working on the Capacity & Preparatory Review section of the Reaccreditation process. Community members can log onto our website using the same information that they use to access their email. When prompted, enter ADMIN\yourusername.

    Wow witness x, so a 22 acre campus is a ‘diploma mill’?? Sounds like Maldy is jealous cause he got denied on his attempt to get a scholarship and take over running the sim. Typical furry ragefail.
