Second Life: Coming & Going

I’ve been hanging around Second Life for awhile. I’ve checked out some land for sale and have found that self-styled land barons have bought up a huge number of the desirable lots; they try to sell it at exorbitant prices or rent it. Sure, that’s a classic real estate play but it assures me that I don’t want anything they are selling. I’ve also been hanging out at a couple places I still love to visit.

A nice place to come home to

I even rented a room at the Blue Moon Motel in the Junkyard Blues sim complex. The nice thing about the Blue Moon is, it’s not over-priced and is kind of cool. It reminds me of olden times when my family rented motel rooms at the coast.

And a place that’s gone

Since dropping my premium account I’ve been landing at the abandoned club, PIER. I’ve written about PIER several times in the past. I have a place in my heart for the joys I found there when I discovered PIER back in 2007. Sadly, it’s gone now.

That’s me this past weekend at the site where PIER once stood.

Ambrosia — Always Cool

The only other night club I visit regularly anymore is Ambrosia. I’ve written about the club many times in the past, but thanks to Phil Kearny, it is still going strong. I think part of Ambrosia’s success is the enthusiasm of Phil’s personality.

That’s the quintessential Phil, but you have to be there to really get the experience.

And this is the Ambrosia Dance Club before the crowd overruns the place.

I’m not sure how long Second Life will exist in its present format, but I’ll keep checking in. The one thing I always come back to is the music and dancing, especially on special holidays. Also, I have to remember to get back to the Motel and pay my rent each week.

  1. Yordie!!!

    I’ve drifted away from SL a bit recently. But “Vanessa’s Place, Coffee + Conversation” is still there. Even if the “conversation” is a bit low at this point.

    1 – feel free to hang out/use the space anytime!
    2 – if you’re still thinking about buying a parcel, the person who owned a big space right next to me has moved out. It was really big, and she’s split it into 3 separate lots for sale. It would be so awesome to have you as a next-door-neighbor!! 🙂 (even if I’m an absentee neighbor ATM). If you like a space but want it smaller, she might negotiate it with you, or I could buy a space with you and we could split it up from there.

    Wherever your travels, virtual & physical, take you, have a happy day, Yordie!!!
