2elwe

Visit 2elwe at Daffodil here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Daffodil/128/128/22

This cool artsy rainy greyscale sim is by Miuccia and Squonk with a special thank to Dexter Bogdanovich and to Wendy Xeno, for supplying some of the structures and other stuff..

There are quite a few interesting vinette type areas to explore with a long road running through it all flanked by telephone poles and lines and numerous moving picture billboards until you reach "The End".  There are masked or sightless dancing ladies, trees atop two tower structures, 

At one spot along the road written right into the pavement it says,
 "Stuttering, cold and damp
Steal the warm wind
tired friend
Times are gone for honest men
And sometimes far too
long for snakes
In my shoes, a walking sleep
And my youth I pray to keep
Heaven sent hell away
No one sings like you anymore

Be sure  to use their windlights and wander all around, as there are little areas of interest in various places you may not expect. This sim is getting some much needed rain based on its otherwise cracked earth, birds, and stunted trees. Fun explore, check it out.

One of SL's main singing sweethearts has some RL medical issues and her friends in SL are organizing a SL benefit for Toxie.  I've blogged about Toxie before so you may have heard me go on about how she's one of my fav SL musicians and I actually purposefully try to follow her shows around, which says a lot for me.  Anyway.. there is going to be some great music, special items for auction and other activities associated with the benefit drive Saturday May 12th and Sunday May 13th.  This ad poster was made by Caz, Scarlett Cazenove.

And if you want to hear some Toxie check out her schedule at Whispering Sands Live Promotions here: http://wslpromo.net/

The Ruins of Deepmarsh

Owned by River (Moya Mccallen)
The sim info states:
" tranquil haven for those looking for an out of the way place to hide for awhile, especially with someone special. Great for photo ops. No Grieving or Spamming."

This is a relatively new sim build and a great explore.  It has a ton of photo ops, single and couple poses/animations including some adult rated, a super cool cave, art sculptures, a huge moon great for photos, and fun landscaping and a lot of interesting stuff to see. Check it out for a great time.

Spirits of the Sea in Second Life, by Storie's glitterprincess destiny


Visit Spirits of the Sea, a new exhibit by Storie's Helendale, glitterprincess destiny, at Serena Imagine Art Center on Wolves Land here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Serena%20Imagine/0/97/21
The Flickr group is here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/storiesglitter/

(Huge thanks to my friend Saoirse Heart Moore, Seersha for the tip about this great place to explore)

Spirits of the Sea, by Stories
Storie's notecard for the sim states in part....

"S т σ я i є' S
just a GirL, disorganized. But always in ART.
Welcome to my exhibition " Spirit's Of The Sea"
In my imagination I felt to create the sense that spirits or ghosts who inhabit the sea with maybe a untimely demise never the less they continue with their lives as seen through my eyes... or the spirits:) I hope you enjoy it as much as i did creating it:)...
Don't be afraid to walk in the ocean you will not sink :)"

August and I immersed ourselves in Storie's cool exhibit under a troubled sky and atop and a darkened sea filled with large surreal images, 2 giant semi-transparent tunnels that gave the feel of being under water, and a variety of fun little scenic areas to play on, relax and enjoy. I forgot to add my advanced windlights, but the photos can still give you an idea how much fun we had. This is my kind of art exhibit, unique, fun to look at and things to enjoy in an immersive environment. I even purchased one of the images for my SLhome. We met Storie's and she was very sweet and welcoming and even made an image of me while I was in a tube, hanging laundry like one of the images. Poor August was attacked by a shark, but survived and enjoyed playing around in the sim too : ) This exhibit is very worth checking out. Be sure to click around.

The sim also holds some quality shopping and another cool exhibit, "The Last Voyage of Nuestra Senora de las Mercedes" by a big pirate ship and sailing type paintings by Javier (orshini.tarantal) and other areas. The sim info states: Serena Imagine Arts Center hosts new or already known artists to make people enjoying their talent.

Premium Everyone!

I'm just going to say, now is a good time to go premium folks.  I just got my first mainland, come join me.  Here are some of the premium benefits....

" Weekly L$300 stipend*
L$1000 sign-up bonus** for first-time Premium Account subscribers
Priority entry when regions are full of avatars
Linden Home or 1024m² tier allotment for use towards a parcel on the Mainland
Expanded live-chat customer support
Premium virtual gifts
Exclusive access to Premium areas and experiences
Increased cap on missed IMs
Increased group membership limits
Voice Morphing"

I love and use the premium sandoxes, even though I always have my own land.  These are full sim, often empty low lag areas you can toss out huge things or do whatever.  The people who do use them are respectful have great sandbox behavior i.e. no griefing, people go to their corners, etc.

I've recently taken advantage of purchasing mainland/tier allotment for parcel use.. woot!

I also really love the increased groups and love the priority entry when regions are full of avatars.  This is great for shopping events, busy live music events, opening days,  and other events that are busy.

If you are not premium.... just some things to consider.

Sansar and Ready Player One

I went to the theater and watched Ready Player One today in 3D Imax and LOVED it! Then I came home and popped into Sansar to see how it's going there as I heard they have a Ready Player One area.  They do, and that's cool.  I don't have VR at this point, so it's a little harder for me than some I guess.  After that I checked out the live music club "Arena", I visited the beach, then a lazer skyscraper build.  I visited the Skye forest, 114 Harvest, and Lily's Room.  That was enough for one day.  I will say Lilly's Room is very cute.. make sure you make it through the maze and seen what happens in the end.  Of course Sansar is still in the making so my av doesn't look the greatest either, but the graphics are great and I enjoyed my exploring.

If you want to visit Sansar, check it out here: https://atlas.sansar.com/

The first pics are from the Ready Player One area.
