The Follow Returns to Second Life 11-21-14 at 6pm SLT

Visit here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Dragons%20Meadow/128/128/2

 I ran over to PRMC home sim - NO CARS , Dragons Meadow (109, 134, 465) - Moderate where The Following will be playing Friday and ran into Anek Fuchs who actually owns the venue for this show, and his partner built it. The area has a multi-level bike track. I asked how many levels it is as it's hard to cam and tell and he said 3 primary levels, but it winds the rest the way down to ground level so more than 5 and he said it changes a lot. It's a very cool place and looks like fun to ride with tunneled areas and nice landscaping winding around and down.  He also told me they will have bike give-aways Friday too, so it should be a great event overall. Powers Avon also showed up to start setting up for the show stage and audience area. The event note card states:
"www.TheFollow.SL is where you can go to teleport to any of our shows With any SIM crash, relocate to The Follow Music Hub until the host SIM recovers
��  or http://tiny.cc/TheFollow
www..TheFollow.com is our little place on the Internet
http://www.thefollow.com/
Calendar: http://tiny.cc/TheFollowCalendar

The Follow always puts on a great show, so be sure to go early and grab a spot.  Take a landmark and try out the public use tracks too!  Be sure to check the links as they give information about their new RL album "K" that is scheduled for a Dec 1 release date. 

I cammed way out and took a pic of the sim/track but can't do it justice at the distance as it really is beautifully landscaped in there with colorful fall trees, interesting tunnels etc., but at least you can get a feel for how the layers wind round. Anyway, hope to see everyone Friday. It's sound be a great show.

The Bad, The Ugly, and Finally the Very GOOD in SL


The bad, the ugly, and finally the good.....  I hate to share this first link perpetuating attention for someone who must not have taken any time exploring the good SL has to offer, or decidedly chose a narrow path, one which many of us easily avoid in SL. But I will, in part because it's the age old stereotype of SL that needs dispelled... which is by a response I link below.  This first post was written Nov 14th using ancient photos and reeks of someone who may not have actually ever entered SL or made any reasonable effort to do/find something productive in SL vs searching for what they obviously were looking for.   Here: http://moviepilot.com/posts/2014/11/14/these-strange-stories-prove-second-life-isn-t-the-dreamworld-you-believed-2429911?lt_source=external,manual,manual 


THEN I felt some sense of normalcy reading Inara Pey's eloquent response today here: http://moviepilot.com/posts/2014/11/18/the-strange-stories-about-second-life-that-totally-miss-the-mark--3-2445543?lt_source=external,manual,manual.
  I really enjoyed Inara's post in spite of the bitter taste left in my mouth by the  "other" post precipitating my finding Inara's.  Inara's is well worth a trip over to her blog to read and also enjoy the attached videos regardless of the reason for her post.  Enjoy the good in your Second Life!

The Secret Affair, Opens Today With Great Fantasy Shopping And a Wonderful Explore

Visit here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Ippos/128/128/37


This place is an amazing explore with a wide variety of settings to get involved in.  I went there looking for a shopping event (which I haven't even found yet and have run out of time for now so will have to log back in later to look some more) and just was enveloped in beauty.  I took a quick shot last night and grabbed the link today.  I am not sure what is going on here yet, but I will find out soon.  In the mean time.. it's gorgeousness all over.  (see addendum below for the event details)






Ok I just found the main event... it's "The Secret Affair".  It's located up in the sky via a teleport from an area that is also wonderfully landscaped near the Cemetery area on the edge of the sim (water area).

Tuty's is a great place to get AOs, skins, shapes, poses, freebies, avatars, elderly avatars, etc.  This is the place I send noobs for free good male and female basic AOs too.  Anyway.. right now in their freebie section they have this cute little pup in purse and they also have a Christmas version that is the same but pup has a little santa hat on.  This item is super cute and highly detailed.

Explore The Pines at Jacob's Pond

Visit here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Jacob/128/128/22


After a long weekend I sulked off to a cute relaxing winter sim to just get away and unwind.  I've been having major computer problems and struggled just to even get some photos.  But finally things were working, at least for a while, and I got a few photos of this nice place to share.  The sim is "The Pines at Jacob's Pond" by Holly  (dacotah.longfall). Holly saw and greeted me welcoming me to her sim and indicated it is open to the public and all are welcome to visit.  This sim was found at a great time for me and I just hung out by myself for a very long time.  So if you too are wanting to relax in a wintery nature area this is a nice spot to check out.
