Simploring 2019 (68) Devin’s Eye

For my 2nd simploring tour on Sunday, June 2nd, I picked Devin’s Eye from scoop.it SL Destinations. Devin’s Eye is a homestead, rated general, owned by Roy Mildor and his partner Ally Mildor (Ally Daysleeper). It consists of three parts:
The ground level offers a nice island with a bit of everything, a long pier, a nice beach, spots to sit and watch, nature, horses and other animals, a garage, a zip line and a bungee tower.
On a seperate platform in the skies above is Roy Mildor’s store “Top Striker“, a shop for tattoos.
And on another platform in the skies is another landscape, a sand desert with an oasis in it’s center.

Devin’s Eye – overview and first impressions

The ground level is a great spot for taking pictures and to retreat and enjoy the peaceful setting. There’s not a real theme for this island. I couldn’t tell if it is in Europe or America, but it is not in the Caribbean nor is it in the Mediterranean. I liked in particular the bungee tower as I didn’t jump before in Second Life (nor in RL). That was fun.

Impressions of Devin’s Eye (1)

It made me smile seeing a rock formation at a canyon that looked like a springboard – and there was a sign with a skull “Danger”. I found several spots that were inviting to sit down and for taking pictures. I think my pictures give an impression of the ground level of Devin’s Eye.

The 2nd landscape can be reached by using on of the teleport boards that are at Devin’s Eye. One is at the beach. This 2nd landscape is really different and also comes with an extra. You can ride a beach buggy and as it is a desert, that makes fun. At the oasis you can watch animals, camels, hippos, giraffes, zebras, tigers, birds and elephants.

There’s a tower that you can climb up to get a nice view. You can also use a hot air balloon for getting a bird’s eye view. There’s a romantic rope bridge between 2 huts. The bridge leads the oasis, the huts offer the opportunity to sit and enjoy the view. It somehow looks a bit misplaced. But when you use it just as a backdrop for a picture, then it is nice with the elephants drinking and playing with the water just close by.

I had fun visiting Devin’s Eye. Thank you Roy and Ally for providing your homeplace to the public. I always appreciate when shop owners combine their business with a nice environment for all to enjoy.

Simploring 2019 (67) Heaven, art installation @LEA1

I selected “Heaven” from scoop.it SL Destinations for my simploring tour on Sunday, June 2nd.

Heaven, art installation @LEA1 by Oema and Van Loopen

 

“Heaven” is a drawings series thought to add a value of women. The evocative church is the 3D part, and the fascinating media lights are the machinima part of this installation for LEA. Media enable are very important to see optimally.

“Heaven” is created by Oema for the “Linden Endowment for the Art” in collaboration with Van Loopen.
18 drawings in black & white by Oema showing female faces a presented at the walls of a cathedral built from mesh. This way the church is just a frame. In the altar area colourful forms appear permanently changing, giving the impression of fireworks. The experience is accompanied with music and other holographic figures that you can see hoovering through the cathedral if you look from farer away, if you look closer, the figures are made of net as well.

This all makes a visit to “Heaven” a virtual experience. I recommend reading Oema’s text about Heaven in her blog here and to watch the machinima she published here. Then go there and get impressed.

Thank you for providing this piece of art for us all, Oema and Van Loopen.

Diary 2019 (82) June 2nd / 3rd Quiet but enjoyable days

Sunday, June 2nd, I was inworld several times. In the morning I checked old landmarks and deleted a lot of them as they weren’t valid anymore. I went on a simploring tour later in the morning.
In the afternoon I roamed a bit, had a kinky meeting (no, I didn’t take pictures, and no nothing really happened *winks*). Finally at night I went simploring again. These days with Jenny and slave Flo on vacation I get more time for myself.
After my simploring tour I went back home and wrote the simploring report until Jenny came inworld. We had a lot to catch up about RL and SL. Then Jenny mentioned my addiction and she cared about it. It really was about time I got licking and tasting her again.

June 2nd: Jenny and Diomita at home (left pictures) / Jenny and Diomita with slave slut cecy (right Pictures)

slave slut cecy was inworld and when Jenny and I both were satisfied we went down to our house to see her. THen Jenny had to leave and to continue enjoying her vacation. I took slave slut cecy back to Psi’s realm and teased her a bit about her RL orgasm … and went to bed.

Monday, June 3rd, I made no simploring tour but spent some time in the afternoon at Heavy Bondage Club and at club Domme a Domme and enjoyed eye candy and reading profiles. At night I had Emmi (RileyLynch) with me, selected a corset, cuffs and gag for her and tied her up to my likes. She’s a perfect bondage doll toy. When Jenny came inworld Emmi went working on her wardrobe. Jenny and I caught up with our news and I got my treat to satisfy my addiction (and Jenny’s addiction).

I ended my night with Emmi at Psi’s realm.

Simploring 2019 (66) Mystic Timbers – Extra worlds

On Saturday, June first, I continued exploring Mystic Timbers (read Simploring 2019 (65) Mystic Timbers). This time I focused on the 6 places offered by the teleport board next to the landing point at Mystic Timbers: Rain City, Road to Nowhere, Red Room Spa, Roofs of Paris, The Rendezvous, The Retreat. All these places are located in the sky above Mystic Timbers. They offer particular backgrounds for photographers and some can also to used for roleplay or for adult scenes. That’s why Mystic Timbers is rated adult.

I started with Rain City. As the name implies, it rains there. Rain City offers apocalyptic urban street scenes with crashed and burning cars. Most of Rain City is just facade. You can enter a boxing studio though and I did. I even tried boxing against a sand bag.

The subway entries aren’t fake as well, if you walk down you get some great bakdrops for subway stations. And there’s also a red light district that can be used as backdrop. Of course I posed there a bit although this time I wasn’t dressed for it but still in my summer outfit from our Friday night party.

Road to Nowhere is a scenery of motel located at a lonesome highway in the middle of nothing, a desert is around the motel. The bike in front of the motel offers some nice poses and the scenery itself it once a again a nice backdrop.

Mystic Timbers – Road to Nowhere

The Red Room Spa is an adult place, very luxurious with a big spa, some bdsm gear, a lovely bathroom, a seperate corner for dressing, a stylish living room and a big hall for party and events.

Mystic Timbers – Red Room Spa

The Rendezvous is one single room with windows looking out to London City. Basically it is a bedroom, for sure nice to meet your loved one.

Mystic Timbers – The Rendezvous and Roofs of Paris

The Roofs of Paris is a scenery that I did see before, yet I don’t remember where. The landing is on a roof. I didn’t find any poses, you have to rezz those yourself for taking pictures with this background. But be careful, you might fall …. down to Msytic Timbers

The last place I visited was The Retreat. Again that is just one room. All furniture is covered with sheets as are the pictures on the walls. But the furniture has adult poses and the rug in front of the fireplace has whole scenes. It might be a great place to take Jenny to, as it is not that obvious what’s hidden there.

Mystic Timbers – The Retreat

All the 6 extra worlds offer different backdrops and sceneries for photographers and together with Mystc Timbers itself there’s almost everything covered. Not that I persoanlly miss that, but sc-fi is not covered, nor fantasy (but there’re enough other places for that).
Mystic Timbers is owned by a group of 9 people: Graice (graice2), Soffy Ronwood, Elise Sirnah, Grace Sixpence, Morgan (morganmonroe1), Lofty Lemur, Bee (filipa emor), Silivren (Neida Rae) and sol (solking)Thank you all for providing Mystic Timbers and the 6 extra Worlds to the public! I enjoyed my visit and had fun exploring the different areas.

Simploring 2019 (65) Mystic Timbers

For my simploring tour on Friday, May 31st, I picked Mystic Timbers from scoop.it SL Destinations. Mystic Timbers is located in a full region rated adult. As far as I could find out, Mystic Timbers is owned by sol (solking).

According to the landmark description Mystic Timbers is in the English countryside. It has a bustling harbour, promenades and a narrow beach, there’re vibrant shops to persue at your leisure and there’s a gallery. Mystic Timbers is intended to be a place for photographers and bloggers or just to have fun and to enjoy the environment.

Mystic Timbers – overview

The landing point is in the town close to the harbour. Right next to the where you land is a teleporter board to access 6 different places, that are on skyplatforms. Also quite close to the landing point I found an office with a bit more information. Although Mystic Timbers is an adult sim, you should refrain from nakedness at least on the ground level. You can rent some of the houses at Mystic Timbers.

Impressions of Mystic Timbers (1) – around the landing point / the gallery

I decided to postpone a visit to the sky platforms and to explore the ground level first. I started with the gallery and had just a short look inside and at the current exhibition called “Winter and Kazrakk”. I postponed a more detailed visit to the gallery as well.

Impressions of Mystic Timbers (2) – the beach and the main street

I started my visit walking to the beach and I had a look at the 2 small beach houses. Then I walked along the main street of the town. It is quite picturesque and some of the shops are occupied. At the end of the street you reach a lovely park. In it’s center is a pond with some ducks, a swan and a swan boat. And of course there’re several spots to sit and enjoy. Close to the park is also a spot just for photographers where you could pose in front of decorated pieces of a ruin.

Impressions of Mystic Timbers (3) – around the park

At one edge of Mystic Timbers is a farm with all what you expect there, farmers market, a tractor, horses, a stall, a windmill, almost every farm background is available. Along the shore of Mystic Timbers you find various residential houses, from a small hut to a larger manor. As far as I checked none of those are furnished, hence I assume they might be available for rent.

Impressions of Mystic Timbers (4) – around the farm / residential houses

Quite outstanding is the large rotunda. From there you have a nice view on the lighthouse and and to the beach. A large and nicely decorated terrace invites to take a break and to enjoy. Inside of the rotunda is swimming pool that is used for sea plants. You can for sure spend some romantic time in the rotunda.

Impressions of Mystic Timbers (5) – residential house with another beach / the rotunda

What else? I saw the ruin of a gazebo and the chapel with a graveyard. I saw some hidden romantic spots to cuddle. I saw many backdrops for pictures. And I saw what seems to be an artists’ colony with  funny houses (one seems to be an old circus trailer).

Impressions of Mystic Timbers (6) – gazebo ruin / chapel / artists’ colony and a look up to the rotunda

Mystic Timbers is a quite varied sim that offers a bit of everything for photographers and for people who just like to enjoy a lovely picturesque environment. Thank you sol (solking) for providing the sim to the public! I enjoyed my visit and exploring it a lot.

P.S.: When this post was published I talked with sol who told me that actually a group of 9 People own Mystic Timbers. I asked for a list …. and here it is. Mystic Timbers is owned by: Graice (graice2), Soffy Ronwood, Elise Sirnah, Grace Sixpence, Morgan (morganmonroe1), Lofty Lemur, Bee (filipa emor), Silivren (Neida Rae) and sol (solking). Thank you all!

Simploring 2019 (64) Binary Radiation at the Gallery La Serre

Sunday, June 9th, I visited the exhibition “Binary Radiation” at the gallery La Serre. The gallery La Serre is located at VeGeTaL PLaNeT. I came across across VeGeTaL PLaNeT during my visit to the latest exhibition at La Maison d’Aneli (read Simploring 2019 (56) La Maison d’Aneli in May). VeGeTaL PLaNeT is created by Vroum Short, who was one of the artists presented in May at La Maison d’Aneli.

The exhibition “Binary Radiation” opened on Monday, June 10th and I visited before it opened. Aneli Abeyante, owner of La Maison d’Aneli, had sent an invitation for the opening to me. Aneli is also curating the gallery La Serre.

“Binary Radiation” by Nino Vichan at Gallery La Serre (1)

Binary Radiation is an installation by Nino Vichan. The walls of the gallery are covered with integrated circuits. In the center of the room are two projectors sending light beams to the opposite wall. The light beams consist partly of the digits 0 and 1. The silhouettes of humans seem to operate the projectors and they also seem to control a spherical device in each beam that constantly changes it form obviously following fractal rules.

The whole installation is full of light effects and the pictures I took can’t really express what you see when visiting in 3D. You will be caught in a world of 0’s and 1’s, literally diving into a binary world, caught by artificial intelligence? In which way you interpret Nino’s work is up to you. I was impressed by the effects and the countless different forms and circuits I could discover only for seconds before they were replaced again. It is also intriguing to take a closer look at the two silhouettes.

“Binary Radiation” by Nino Vichan at Gallery La Serre (2)

Aneli, who was present during my pre-opening visit, told me that Nino is Italian. He’s not only doing installation with light effect but also creates drawings and other forms of art. She gave me two links, one about “Desert Abstract“, a series of abstract images from 2014 that Nino made inspired by a visit to Nevada. The other link shows some of Nino’s drawings that were exhibited in Second Life in 2012.

Aneli also told me that she is going to move her “La Maison d’Aneli” to VeGeTaL PLaNeT. The first exhibition there will be opened mid of July.

Thank you Nino for this great and inspiring installation. I enjoyed my visit a lot.
Thank you Vroum for providing the gallery La Serre and thank you Aneli for curating the gallery.

Diary 2019 (81) June 1st – Kinkploring Saturday

I went on another simploring tour Saturday, June 1st, in the later afternoon. At night I grabbed the newest group gift at “Nice but Naughty”. It’s a lounger, that offers some kinky animation, but it is also great just as a lounger. I placed one opposed to our main house at home. Then I went to Heavy Bondage Club for a while and had some chats there, but most of the time I read profiles – and that reminded me of my “kinkploring” list, where I make notes about kinky places to have a look at later. The first place I visited was the homeplace of a domme. I had grabbed the LM from her profile a while ago. Homeplaces to tell a lot about a person or community, about their kinks and passions.

The next place I visited was the House of Sensations. I saw the landmark in the profile of a domme named Devi while I was at Heavy Bondage Club that night. The landmark led me to a sky platform and I saw that Devi was on the ground. I went down to the ground and was quite surprised seeing a stylish manor, nicely decorated outside. I rang the bell but none opened the door and after a while I peeked in. Devi was on the 2nd floor but obviously absent. And there was Essanem Spark but she was absent as well.

June 1st: Impressions of the “House of Sensations” (1)

Devi logged off and Essanem woke up and said hello to me. She turned out to be very nice and she gave me a tour through the manor. It is her place and she told me that she loves to create places. The manor is really built with love for the detail and the kinky stuff is well hidden in furniture and not seen on the first glance. Essa took me also back to the platform where I landed first and gave me a tour through the castle up there, which is really humongous. You can easily get lost in it. I had my problems following Essa and got lost twice during the tour.

Finally Essa showed me her beach house. She invited me to the House of Sensations group and allowed me to return. I look forward taking Jenny to the House of Sensations during my next green light.
