Nicely done, shame however that it wasn't build to scale so you can get a real feeling of how little the house was.

I remember discovering the ASU Johnny Cash sims last spring. They are lovely, especially the exhibit about the town itself, even if you are not interested in country music.

There’s new Johnny Cash documentary on the internet called My Father and The Man In Black, has anyone else heard of it or seen it? It talks about a side of Johnny Cash’s story that many of us don’t know about. Anyway, the article above reminded me of the film, I thought it was pretty cool and I can’t wait to see it! Heres the link to the trailer:

Well. Since I live about an hours drive from Cash's home and visited it before it became a "museum"; I gotta say its fairly accurate, given the limitations of SL. I found the inside to be claustrophobic as per the real house.


And the wood cutting anim in the back was fun too.

Kudos

My aunt and uncle owned this house for many years. I remember laying in my cousin's bed staring at the wood plank walls covered in Teen Magazine pictures and tattered wallpaper thinking "Wow. Johnny Cash slept in this room."

While it was just another home, my family was keenly aware that the house had significant meaning for Dyess and my family's connection to the Cash family (school mates and neighbors).

I'm currently in the process of writing a book titled "Colony" that tells the story of the first year in the life of new colonist focusing on a visit by Eleanor Roosevelt shortly after Dyess died in a plan crash and the whispered rumors of his demise.
