  2. We’re excited to announce our very first live-streaming show - “Lab Gab” with Xiola and Strawberry Linden. We’ll be coming to you live on YouTube every two weeks or so, starting Wednesday, August 28th at 3 pm SLT/PT. You can join us for these live streams on our Official YouTube Channel here when we go live! (We’re working on bringing Lab Gab to more streaming platforms in the very near future - so stay tuned!) What’s Lab Gab? Well, it will be a variety show of sorts - we want to explore Second Life, answer your questions, talk to Residents from all over the world, and stream it through the internet and into your homes, phones, and wherever you get your quality entertainment. In our first show, we’ll be introducing ourselves, talking a little bit about what Lab Gab is, and interacting with you through YouTube live. In the future, we will invite special guests to come visit us on the set and talk about events and issues that impact the communities in Second Life. As long-time Residents and now Lindens, we can’t wait to get gabbing! Tune in at 3 pm SLT on Wednesday, August 28 for our launch and stay tuned to our social media and blog for updates about future shows.
  3. The Hair Fair has been an annual staple of the Second Life event scene for several years now. Residents look forward each year to the opportunity to shop for new hair for their avatars and do so for a good cause. Sasy Scarborough, Mel Vanbeeck, and Whimsy Winx have organized another Hair Fair this year (now through September 1st) with a wealth of options for even the most discerning and selective of hair shoppers. Three Regions and Cam Shopping areas are sure to provide a rich shopping experience to those who visit. Exclusive items are marked with percentages of proceeds that are given to the non-profit organization Wigs for Kids - and Hair Fair has raised tens of thousands of USD in donations made from inworld sales and purchases by Second Life Residents. That’s an incredible feat and one that Sasy, Whimsy and Mel are grateful for. You can visit the Hair Fair through September at any of the following destinations: Hair Regions Hair Fair 2019 - Redhead Region Hair Fair 2019 - Noirette Region Hair Fair 2019 - Blonde Region Cam Shopping Regions Hair Fair 2019 - Streaks Hair Fair 2019 - Brunette (aka Perm) Hair Fair 2019 - Foils Be sure to allow yourself time to explore all three Regions so as not to miss anything. This week’s Destination Video gives some further insight into the event, its purpose, and its creators - watch the video below or on our official YouTube Channel.

  8. One of the many incredible things about Second Life and virtual worlds, is that you can travel to places that may be otherwise out of reach and experience some of the culture and adventure without the jet lag or the travel costs. These places can be outside the scope of our world - eras long past or places that never existed - or they can be inspired by places that exist in the physical world. France, England, Japan, and many other countries are just a teleport away. Monash University’s Chinese Island is a place that virtually represents a Chinese township, where you can experience some of the things that reflect everyday life in China. Kaylee West teaches students about Chinese language and culture at Monash University in Australia, and he has created and curated Chinese Island in Second Life as a way for anyone to get a taste of the Chinese culture from wherever they may be in the world. You can visit the website for more information about the project. To catch a glimpse of what Chinese Island is like, you may watch this destination video, but we highly recommend that you login to your Second Life account and plan a trip to visit it inworld - just use the Destination Guide link here or below the video. (Note: If you don’t see the language captions automatically, be sure to turn them on for the full translation).

  14. Since its beginning, artists have found Second Life to be a means of expression - from installations and exhibits like Bryn Oh’s work, to galleries and fundraisers like the Raglan Shire Artwalk - art has always been a key element of the Second Life Community. With recent conversations about the ending of the initial iteration of the LEA, and what may be soon to follow in its spirit, it is clear that not only is art in Second Life important to artists, but it is also important to the community. Acclaimed French artist, Patrick Moya (Moya Janus in Second Life) has an impressive and expansive breadth of work that spans over 40 years, and includes dolls designed for UNICEF, ceramic sculptures, video and projection art, and the work he’s done in Second Life at “Moya Land.” Moya Land is a space in which he says he can realise a dream - to be a character who lives inside of his own work. To find out more about Moya Land and the artist, watch this Destination video and login to check out the Moya Galleries in Second Life. If you do not speak French, be sure to turn on closed captioning to English. University of Moya Explore this creative, messy and chaotic art space by Patrick Moya. Visit in Second Life
