Womenstuff Hunt

Womenstuff Hunt

Join us for today’s Happy Hunting! in the treet.tv studios in Garden of Dreams at 3pm, Friday 30th November, to learn about the great hunts that are going on across the grid, to see an interview with Sequoia Nightfire and ElaraGloriana Scrabblebat of the amazing Peace on Earth Hunt and to get the latest news of The Blackened Mirror!

Rosamoo Mendelsohn of Hunt SL, our hunt reporter, will be on hand with all the latest hunt news, and some examples of the wonderful items she’s found – and this week, she will be focusing on one to keep you busy till the Christmas Hunts really get under way – The Womenstuff Hunt!

Peace on Earth Hunt

Cinders Vale, our host, will be talking to Sequoia Nightfire and ElaraGloriana Scrabblebat of the Peace on Earth Hunt, now in its fifth year! She’ll be hearing all about their plans for what is probably one of the best known hunts on the Second Life calendar.

And there’ll be chance to see again Episode 5 of The Blackened Mirror. There will be a special party this weekend – watch the website for details!

So join us at 3pm today in the studio for the broadcast. Bring along your hunter friends too. We will be glad to have you all join us for the show.

Water Reserve

Today’s jigsaw is another from the wonderful blog of our deputy editor, Honour MacMillan – Honour’s Post Menopausal (View of Second Life). This image is taken from a recent (and hilarious) post – “Ignoring My Testosterone-Challenged Real World Issues in Second Life“. The images are taken from Water Reserve – recently (and gorgeously) made ready for winter.

This sim was also recently visited by Inara Pey, writer of another wonderful blog – Living in a Modem World – which recently was chosen by New World Notes as its readers favourite blog. Honour’s was also honourably mentioned there too. So a sim chosen by both of both of them is well worth a jigsaw as a way opf saying “Congratulations!”, don’t you think?

You can now see Designing Worlds’ visit to Temasek, the Second Life region inspired by Singapore, on the web!

Veritas Raymaker, owner and developer of Temasek, has brought something of the history, geography and ecology, and the culture of Singapore into the virtual world. Ranging from Mangrove swamps and a fishing village to a second world war fort (complete with an aerial attack!) to Concorde and modern builds … and not forgetting a look at traditional food on the way … this is a very rich and exciting environment to explore!

Elrik Merlin was on holiday when the show was shot, so Saffia is joined by Zander Greene as co-presenter as Veritas takes us on a journey around his island from the tunnels beneath to high in the sky!

And this is not the only fascinating build that Veritas is involved with – he also supports the First World War Digital Poetry Archive region, taking it over when the University of Oxford project was coming to an end – and, in the show, we remind ourselves of that iconic build too.

Asian Inspiration

You may have noticed that – at the end of all of our jigsaw posts – we invite you to add your pictures to our Flickr group, and say that we hope to use some of them here as jigsaws.  There are some very striking photos posted to the group – and today’s is one of those.

It’s by Emerald Beningborough (whose photos you can see here), and it’s a photograph of one of her styling projects for the new Inspirations book – the amazing source book for interior design that’s the brainchild of Pitsch Parx and edited by Persia Bravin.  This is the from the second part of the Second Volume – and the whole is the most amazing and visually ravishing treat. Do go and take a look. And also a discreet tissue top mop up the drool …

Let’s take a deep breath and do a jigsaw!

Prim Perfect at the Christmas Expo 2011 – designed and photographedby Eliza Wierwright

Following the success of our discussion / interview sessions at last year’s Christmas Expo – and at the Home and Garden Expo and SL9B, we are planning a further series at the 2012 Christmas Expo.

Eliza Wierwright is building us a pavilion in the tradition of the beautiful and very snug dacha that she created for us in 2011, straight out of an enchanting Russian fairytale, and we’ll be hosting as many sessions as possible!

We’re planning to host events at 3pm every day.  If you would really LOVE to give a presentation, but can’t make that time, contact us and we will see if we can fit you in.

We are happy to host talks, presentations, interviews, question and answer sessions.  It’s an opportunity for designers to share ideas, for people to meet their favourite creators, for communities to come together and talk about their culture and ideas.  We’re very open to hosting what YOU want to tell us about!

If you would like to be a part of our programme at the Expo, please complete this form with your topic and preferred dates and times. We will try to fit in as many people as we can!

Temasek

Temasek

To accompany yesterday’s Designing Worlds programme (which is now available on treet.tv), we have for today’s jigsaw one of the beautiful photographs of Temasek by Wildstar Beaumont that were featured on the show.

Temasek is a representation of Singapore in the virtual world of Second Life, owned and conceived by Veritas Raymaker, to give people a taste of Singapore old and new – with elements of the history, culture, geography and economy of the island state. We had great fun – and learned a lot – exploring the island. We hope that you will too!

But before you view the programme … here’s a jigsaw to tackle!
