Backflash May 2011 – UbU, You may never leave…

In the “Backflash” series I select an old entry once a month and present it here. This way I force myself to browse in the archive and to fresh up a few of the many memories. For our readers the new series shall provide an insight into our Second Life without reading back the many posts and it might also give reason to browse through the archives.
For May 2021 I went 10 years back and found this post about the sim “UbU”. UbU was a popular sim in the BDSM scene 10 years ago, in particular after Stonehaven had been closed. And we spent quite some time there. Our Kitty wrote a nice post about UbU – fond memoeries if you read it now!
UbU is long gone as well, I don’t know when it closed, but it must have been in 2012 or 2013 – but the memories stay alive. Enjoy reading!


UbU, You may never leave…

Here’s another report about a sim from Kitty. This sim is particular. For some it is the replacement of Stonehaven, for others with a secret passion it was their playground long before Stonehaven went off. If you’re going to explore it please search the bottle of “Original Stonehaven Lag” which someone hast lost there. Now, here’s the report from our curious kitten…

What happens when a team of passionately creative minds decides to save their favorite playground from vanishing? Just come to the all-new Ubu and see for yourself. Having so many ingenious forces at work, Ubu has turned out to be playground with many different faces. Here are a few:
Bring your tack and board your pony in the midst of fresh pastures at the ranch, a Class-A training facility where services include vaulting, dressage and a racetrack.

If going down under is your thing, find the manhole in the main square and explore an extensive network of tunnels leading to many ‘special’ rooms and chambers.
Some of us love going fishing, while others prefer to watch. And of course, Ubu’s creators were thoughtful and decided to cater to both needs. So, if fishing isn’t your thing, you can still watch it happen – from one of many underwater ‘observation areas’.

Care for style? Go to the Bar Nothing, a sultry nightclub based on a wonderful story by k2ph and tisi. Become part of the story or create your own inside this beautifully designed etablissement inspired by the Parisian style of the ’20s.

If you prefer sensual Asian cuisine over the French, you can learn the ropes at the Shibari Garden. And Ubu’s wonderful management team didn’t stop there.

In case you enjoy ungroomed nature and wilderness more than perfectly-manicured lawns, you can always drop into the eerie darkness of a large forest for a game of hide-and-seek. Of course, you can always opt for a smaller forest – that of one tree – and many interesting devices to explore.
After so much fun, you might be in need for some peace and quiet time. Ubu’s passionate minds thought even of those needs and provide relaxing and rejuvenating MD Podding storage services at your convenience. Still looking for more to see and do? Drop your keys in the key-lottery box at the mainsquare and see what happens. And of course, there is a large pirate ship to visit.

If you like the sim, Ubu Management offers residential and commercial areas for rent. And the credits for all this wonderful work go the dedicated Ubu passionistas: Heidi Shoreland, Tasha Yar Telling, Eve Keneinan, K2ph Drammond, Stacy Fernwitch and all the many others who have contributed and supported the sim and hung in there during construction activities and lag. Thank you all for keeping UbU alive!
