The Long Walk

The Long Walk

Is there a Hunt at this year’s SL10B Community Celebrations?

Well, yes … and then more yes.

Because if your idea of a good hunt is the chance to explore new places and find amazing things … then all you need to do is come to the Community Celebrations, and look around.

You’ll find the most amazing things – all jam-packed next to each other. And because SL10B is a birthday – your birthday – you’ll find presents all over the place.

But as well as the serendipity of exploring the twenty amazing sims that you’ll find, there’s also going to be something special – The Long Walk.

It’s been devised by David Abbott (who you may remember as the intrepid explorer in the Egyptian desert who guided you through the Hunt in the Desert at SL9B). And he’s been ably assisted behind the scenes by Rosamoo Mendelsohn of Hunt SL and by Whiskey Monday who created the striking poster you see here.

So what is the Long Walk?
Every day for the Birthday Week, David will be posting an account of that day’s Walk on the blog, describing some of the amazing things he sees. You can follow in his footsteps and – along the way – you will discover one or two gorgeous gifts – not in every location he mentions, but in very special places where X will mark the spot!

The walk will continue throughout the week from June 16 – 23rd. In the following week, you will still be able to follow the Long Walk and find the special gifts while the sims remain open.

Keep reading the blog to find out more about The Long Walk – coming soon!

DJ (Power) Stage at SL10B CC

DJ (Power) Stage at SL10B CC

As well as Pictures of the Day from the SL10B Community Celebration, periodically, we’re bringing you some fun and games – such as occasional jigsaw puzzles of elements of the celebrations.

Today we have a view of the DJ stage, created by KT Syakumi. The stage is high in the cooling tower – and it’s stunning. There’s also plenty to find here – in the tower itself, in the tunnels underneath – and in the wastelands that surround it all.

So you can take in a set – and explore too. But – be careful out there. There are Hazards!

Catch up with your Prim Perfect jigsaws (showing images of Second Life and other virtual worlds).

If you’d like to submit a photo of your own to feature as a jigsaw, send it to the Prim Perfect Flickr Group. It should be sized 800w x 600h, or else it will need to be re-sized.

Our latest episode is now available on the web, so join us as we pay the first of two visits to the Home and Garden Expo.

In this first visit, we talk to Nikki Mathieson, the Organiser of the Home and Garden Expo. Cain Maven of Maven Homes and Quantum Luxury Homes. DeAnne Dufaux of Park Place Home Decor, Robin Sojourner of Kick the Can and Sandry Logan of the Virtual Kennel Club – who have some exciting new pets – adding, to the dogs that do what you tell then … cats … who follow your commands about 50% of the time – and then ignore you.

SL10B-CC Photo Contest

SL10B-CC Photo Contest

We’ve reached the deadline for the SL10B Community Celebration Photo Contest – and the Flickr Group is now closed!

But the Linden Lab SL10B Photo Contest is still going on – and you can find out more about how to enter that here!

The organisers will be displaying the top entries to  the SL10B Community Celebration Photo Contest at the SL10B Community Celebration event – and you will all have the chance to vote on which are your favourites!

This week’s Quest for the Golden Prim features a dilemma for some of the characters.

Dilemmas for Nan, Ralph - and Lola!

Dilemmas for Nan, Ralph – and Lola!

Nan thinks that the dashing Ralph Montcalm is thinking altogether too much about that wicked female pirate captain that he met and fought back in the woods of Steelhead.  A woman who had, we should remind ourselves, proved herself ruthless in kidnapping Nan and addicting poor Minnie to opium.

And Ralph … well, he thinks he’s thinking too much about the dashing female pirate too. But then there’s Nan …

Even Lola the dog has problems (in Finnish).

Can you advise the lovelorn three?  That’s the fun project associated with this week’s Quest! Read their letters, and see if you can advise them …

Arcadia Asylum Living Library at SL10BCC

As well as Pictures of the Day from the SL10B Community Celebration, periodically, we’ll be bringing you some fun and games – with news, for example, of the Hunt we are planning – and occasional jigsaw puzzles of fun things we have found too.

This exhibit has been created by Prof Grey, the Curator and Creator of the Arcadia Asylum Living Libraries. His goal is to help preserve the works of Aley (A.K.A. Arcadia Asylum & Aley Aria) and help to distribute them for all to enjoy.

These fantastic freebies are to be found in many places across the grid – and you have probably come across some on your travels. Now you can admire, and learn more, at the SL10B Community Celebration.

And you can do a jigsaw too!

The Lake Stage

The Lake Stage

The twenty Community Regions are now open, and there’s a lot of building going on!

As we did last year, we’re going to start posting pictures of the day of the builds and the stages, chosen as they appear on the SL Community Celebration Flickr Group. You will need to be a member of the group to post – and by posting to the group, you give consent for the organisers of the event to use them in publicity and for pictures of the day.

Encounter in a Lily Pond (at the A’stra Stage)

Some builds are incomplete, and some we are asking people not to post pictures of … yet! After all, we want visitors to have a few surprises when they join us! So please avoid posting pictures of clearly incomplete builds, or where there are signs asking you not to take pictures.

And if you don’t want pictures taken of your build yet, please put out a sign or rezz a prim to hide your build till the moment you are ready to share it with the world!

So submit your pics … and see them on the SL10B Community Celebration blog!

All today’s pics were taken by me, to get the ball rolling!
