Exploring the Crystal Gardens - Second life

Exploring the Crystal Gardens - Second life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

During my explorations, I found the fabulous Crystal Gardens. 1 I think I’ve mentioned before that I have a thing for lighthouses – probably because we don’t have any where I live. :-P There were a ton of areas to explore on this sim, and the landscaping was just gorgeous.

The Summer of ’42 in Second Life

The Summer of ’42 in Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it
HI INARA! I HOPE YOU’RE WELL. I DON’T KNOW IF YOU’VE EVER SEEN THE MOVIE SUMMER OF 42, BUT I’VE CREATED A NEW REGION BASED ON THE STORY. I HOPE YOU CAN MAKE IT BY ONE DAY.  – Justice Vought

So came the invitation from Justice Vought, owner of Oxygen (see: Getting some :oxygen: in Second Life) and also the engaging Once Upon A Time, celebrating Second Life’s most famous residents, the Greenies, and Chocolate Factory, a homage to both Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, starring Gene Wilder (1971), and 2005’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, starring Johnny Depp.  Given this heritage, I hopped over to take a look as soon as time allowed.

Grauland’s Art Park in Second Life

Grauland’s Art Park in Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

I first visited Grauland, the Homestead region held by by JimGarand and home (in the sky) to his M-1 Art Pose business in March 2019. At the time, I was immediately struck by its genuine uniqueness, offering an environment that expresses art as a landscape.

Since that time, Jim has continually revised the region on a regular cycle of iterations, some of which have continued that idea of art-as-landscape, others of which might be regarded as more “natural” settings – tropical beaches, oriental gardens, deserts – all of which have been highly engaging and kept me returning to the region to write about many of them.

Letting off steam with Zany Zen Railway in Second Life 

Letting off steam with Zany Zen Railway in Second Life  | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

Back in April 2020, I wrote about Rydia Lacombe’s work in mapping all of Second Life’s railway networks (see: Mapping Second Life’s mainland railways). I ended the article by musing the idea of doing an occasional series about the Second Life Railroad (SLRR) network, even going so far at to contemplate a title for the series: From the Footplate. However, in June of 2020 the Lab launched a video series on the subject, prompting me to put the idea onto the back burner.

However, had I gone ahead with that series, I would have started with the Zany Zen Railway (ZZR), located in the heart of Jeogeot.

“My Greece, My Cats” by Slatan Dryke – Kultivate Loft Gallery - Second Life | Second Life Destinations | Scoop.it

I love to travel – not that I’ve had much of a chance to do so the last few years (even before the SARS-CoV-2 situation brought a halt to travelling around for just about all of us); I also have a love of cats (I’m the Chief Meal Giver and Dish Washer to two). So when an art exhibition combines both travel and cats, I’m going to hop along to take a look.
