SL16B – How cute are the new Linden Homes?!


Tonight it was (finally) time for the first of the  “Meet the Lindens”  series, featuring Patch Linden. And with the topic we’ve all been waiting for: the presentation of the new theme  Linden Homes! He had a few surprises to share with us: immediately after the interview a few new homes are added to the…

SL16B: The Auditorium on Dazzle – there be Lindens…


To start with something different than the blogtitle: there is a fun challenge for everyone visiting the SL16B celebrations! It’s easy, so there is no reason to not participate: all you have to do is go to the SL16B Welcome Area, pick up the Party hat, lanyard and flag and take a festive picture of…

SL16B – There’s cake, aliens and more!


Finally open to the public, today: SL16B! SecondLife’s “Sweet Sixteen” with a 1950s retro theme. A theme I am sure many will love – I know I do! What’s there to do? Of course the SL16B sims are great to explore and be amazed by the creations on display, and I am honest: this year…

Endless on a Sunday morning


The snow has melted, the sun is out and I just got home from a lovely, long, walk with my dogs, my idea of a  perfect start of a relaxed Sunday! The dogs have eaten and are taking their morning nap, so I went for some more walking; in Second Life! This walk is as…

My N00b moment and Tralala’s Diner


This morning, after some shopping, I was unpacking my new purchases in peace and quiet, a disaster happened. I am not sure what I did, but all of a sudden my screen was brownish and I could not zoom back to the normal view. I tried to reset the camera position, but it seemed I…

Cobkobo – Russia


This week I was in explorer-mode and I often find interesting and photogenic places when scrolling through Flickr. So many talented SL Photographers post the most wonderful landscapes images, making me somewhat envious at times, but most important: making me want to visit those places! Sadly not everyone includes landmarks to their uploads, allthough most…

Buzz, the new club in town


Clubs in Second Life, they have always been there for as long as I am a resident. And I suppose they will always be there for as long as Second Life exists. I love to go to clubs, for the music, the dancing and meeting people. Well or just dance and listen to the tunes,…

Sunny Day – by Cica Ghost


One of Second Life’s most productive artists must be Cica Ghost! And I love her for it, as she creates the most awesome ‘landscapes’ on her sim Nowhere City. Her current installation is called “Sunny Day” and that is exactly the feeling you get when you visit this whimsical place. A world where everything is…

Oboeru


Summer is coming, not only in real life, but of course also in Second Life – which usually means a lot of locations are turning into beaches and more often than not: tropical. I do not particularly love tropical destinations, so I am always pleasantly surprised to find places to get that summer feeling without…

Butterfly Beach


If you love dreamy beaches, but not the tropical kind, you will love this new place in Secondlife created by Funky Banana : Butterfly Beach. Opened today, this beach is a dream for Second Life explorers and photographers! Butterfly Beach is elegantly landscaped and the decoration is amazing and well thought out, yet not too…
