Simploring 2019 (46) Hotel California

For my simploring tour on Tuesday, April 2nd, I picked Hotel California from scoop.it SL Destinations. What attracted me was the name of course. We once had a little private prison, that we called Hotel California because of the song from the Eagles with the same name “You can checkout any time you like, but you can never leave!”

Anyway, this Hotel California has nothing to do with it at all! In the landmark profile it is described as “A war torn land fighting it’s way back to beauty. Life always finds a way.” and it is tagged with “Photography, Scenic, Landscape, Photo, Art, Photographer, Country, Apocalypse, War, Apocalyptic, Garden, Vintage, Travel, Explore

Hotel California – overview

Hotel California is an adult sim owned by Lex Machine (schmexysbuddy) and it is a piece of land clearly torn by war. But the war seems to be over for a long time already and nature takes the land back. This offers quite some opportunities for particular pictures and extraordinairy views.

Hotel California – Landing point and hotel

The landing is on a destroyed bridge, one end is broken, the other leads to a hotel. Strangely the illuminated advertising is still working but the hotel itself is empty, abandoned for a long time already, bushes and weed grow from every crack in the walls. In the open patio, there’s still a table and a few chairs. Many birds fly around the hotel, they seem to have their nests here. Very odd is the small motor bike parked in front of the hotel. The whole area seems to be abandoned, who is living here?

Hotel California – Ruins in the water with “soldiers”

After exploring the hotel I went down to the shore to have a look at the 2 big ruins that peek out of the sea. I came across an old rusty tank wreck and then saw a group of statues in the water, like soldiers that run to the shore to occupy it, or do they flea from the ruins? The statues are not soldiers, they reminded me a bit of those from Mistero Hifeng. The tank wreck, the “soldiers” and the two ruins build an artful installation. I climbed on the ruins, there’s really not much left but concrete and steel. At one corner a huge octopussy peeks out with it’s long tentacles.

Hotel California – Gazebo, plane wreck and other impressions

There’re some more ruins on Hotel California, just 2 buildings are not destroyed, one is a gazebo at the shore and the other one is a large wooden residential home. I went inside of the residential home, all rooms are empty. The only room that isn’t empty is a greenhouse, which is full of plants. On the meadows next to this house animals are grazing peacefully. Strange enough that after some exploring the atmosphere doesn’t seem so violent anymore, despite of all the ruins and leftovers from a war.

Hotel California – Abandoned house

Next to the house I noticed an entrance to something in the underground. It turned out being a bunker and it is the only room that is furnished and there’s someone living in it obviously.

Hotel California – Bunker and other impressions

Hotel California is an one of a kind sim, the ruins in the water with the “soldiers” is a piece of art, the rest of the sim is strangely peaceful … “life always finds a way“.
Thank you Lex for sharing the sim with the public.

Simploring 2019 (39) Baroqued Orientilika

For my short simploring tour on Monday, March 18th, I picked Baroqued Orientilika from scoop.it SL Destinations mostly because that there was no information about the place, just a picture and Japanese characters.

Impressions of Baroqued Orientilika – Shopping in Japan (1)

Baroqued Orientilika is owned by Kamo. It is a complex of 8 identical 3 stories Japanese buildings arranged in 2 rows with 4 buildings each. The buildings are surrounded by an alley of cherry trees on 2 sides, by altars, buddhas, arches and statues of elefants on one side, and on one side by an entrance building with 2 high rise temples on each side. It’s an impressive complex – held mostly in red and very Japanese.

And what is it about? It’s shopping mall, a place to take pictures, an a place to meet. I don’t know if it is a temporary event mall or if it is a permanent mall, I assume it’s open for a limited time.

Impressions of Baroqued Orientilika – Shopping in Japan (2)

The shops are only on the ground level and they are all decorated very well and not just vendors. There are a lot shop spaces that are fill with photo scenes for taking solo pictures or couple pictures within a 3D environment. I didn’t count them, but there’re quite a few.

Last but not least, it’s fun to explore what’s around the 8 buildings, the many temples and the elephants. There’re also some possibilities to sit and chat (with your friends after shopping *winks*) and the cherry alley is really nice and inviting for taking pictures.

As I can’t read nor speak Japanese, I couldn’t find out more about Baroqued Orientilika. But it is refreshing different to the shopping malls, that I saw in Second Life so for. Have a look yourself 🙂

Mistress Jenny’s 11th rezzday

Today is the 11th rezzday of my beloved wife, my property, my partner, my friend, my mistress, my world – Mistress Jenny. Thank you for being inworld for me, Mistress, for your care and for the wonderful journey with you so far. I look forward to many years to come.
I love you, Mistress Jenny!

Simploring 2019 (31) Quebec City

My simploring tour on Friday, March 8th, brought me to “Quebec City / where art & music lives (in the Canadian Spring)“. I came across it by looking up scoop.it SL Destinations.

Quebec City is a moderate sim, owned by a group named “PSY CITY citizen” which was founded by Louise Françoise de Dampierre (felizitas barbosa). I assume that Louise owns Quebec City. The landing point is in the middle of a crossing. Looking around there’s the fire department, a drive-in movie theatre, and a dead end road leading to the coast. In the background you see the typcial mix of highrise houses and lower houses. Quebec City is not dirty, yet it isn’t neat and clean neither, just as you’d expect it.

Impressions of Quebec City (1) – around the landing point and at the shore (lower right)

I first went to the coast and the pier with the motor yacht. There’s also a waterplane and a submarine. I admit it made me smile seeing the lobster sign of Nantucket, that I have seen in several sims already. We’re in Canda, in the French part of Canada. Of course, there’s lobster in Canada, but for sure not in Nantucket *winks*. I loved the dead shark hanging at the pier. The poor fish has even a name: Bruce.

Impressions of Quebec City (2) – at the shore, Diomita meets the shark Bruce (upper left)

Walking back from the shore, I first walked up and down the the street with the open air drive-in movie theatre. Besides the fire department, there’s a police station right across it. On the other side is a gas station, a dinner and an old residential home. This home is private. And as Louise was present and inside, I assume that it is her private home. Across the street of her home is the park of Quebec City, a little oasis in the town. If you blind out the highrise buildings in the background, you could imagine being in pure nature.

Impressions of Quebec City (3) – exploring the town: Police department (upper left), gas station and diner (upper right), residential home of Louise (lower left) and city park (lower right)

I continued exploring the town and found a night club named “Le Lotus Bleu”, I saw a patisserie, a shop for records, a fashion shop and a museum “Musée des Beaux Arts”. I visited the Zoo. Quebec City offers what you’d expect from a larger town. Did I mention that the street signs are French?

Impressions of Quebec City (4) – exploring the town: “Le Louts Bleu” exterior and interior (upper pictures), the zoo (lower left) and inside the “Musée des Beaux Arts” (lower right)

My next stop was the hotel. When you enter it, it really feels like the lobby of a hotel that could be anywhere in the world, a reception, a few chairs, clocks showing the time of New York, Paris and Baghdad. A luggage cart with some suitcases stands in the middle of the room. At the reception is a wall with room keys, some pictures decorate the walls and at the end of the entrance hall is an elevator.

Impressions of Quebec City (5) – exploring the town: The hotel (upper left), the entrance hall with the reception (upper right), the gentleman lounge (lower left) and FIXPOINT PHOTO Agency & Studio (lower right)

The elevator leads up to the gentleman lounge, which offers a bar, coosy chairs, billard, a piano … and two intimate rooms upstairs, one named “Dungeon” and one named “Red Room”. No wonder that I of all people found these rooms in Quebec City! The Dungeon itself was empty though, but had a nice bathroom and the Red Room was also more or less empty. Both are either not yet installed or there’s a new usage planned for them.
After visiting the hotel I walked to FIXPOINT PHOTO Agency & Studio. In Louise’s picks I found that they offer high quality model photo shootings.

I further explored the town and took a few more pictures. I recommend visiting the small chapel at the shore, it’s really lovely inside. I also discovered the underworld ot Quebec City. At some points you can enter the sewers. Last but not least I stopped by the diner once again. There’s a sign welcoming you to “Psy City”. Is Quebec City also named “Psy City”? I have no idea, and I didn’t find anything fitting on the internet.

I

Impressions of Quebec City (6) – exploring the town: The Chapel (upper left), record store and fashion shop (upper right), in the underworld of Quebec City (lower left) and “Welcome to Psy City” (lower right)

Quebec City is worth a visit, a little piece of France in North America. The town offers a lot of what you’d expect and is a great background for roleplaying as well as for taking pictures. I enjoyed exploring it. Thank you, Louise Françoise de Dampierre (felizitas barbosa) for providing this place to us all!

Diary 2019 (28) February 23rd/24th varied weekend

Saturday, February 23rd, Mistress Jenny and I went to club Domme a Domme in the afternoon. As often when I’m together with Mistress, I was in a submissive mood just by her presence. Anyway, I asked Mistress to kneel beside her at the club and she smiled and granted it. Actually she seemed to be very happy that I asked and in the course of our stay at the club she asked me to add the full set of the elegance cuffs. She locked the cuffs and the elegance collar in a way that I couldn’t detach them nor take the keys.

We went home and Mistress teased me until I had to leave to tend to my RL.

February 23rd: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at club Domme a Domme and at home

Mistress wasn’t online at night due to her RL and she had left my cuffs locked with the keys out. This way I could get into trouble and that was her intention. Angelique was inworld and she had dressed herself in a very kinky way. She wore a black catsuit, her chastity belt, leg and arm harnesses, a hood with a pony tail – and a full set of cuffs. It was really hard work for me not to ravish her right away and I managed to refrain from taking her keys all night!

Angelique and I went to club Domme a Domme. It was exciting to be there with her, dressed in fetish clothes and knowing that we both were vulnerable – just a click away from trouble. But none dared to make that click. slave slut cecy came inworld. She’s still leashed at Psi’s realm but I didn’t go there to pick her up. Instead we only had a chat in IM. slave Flo came inworld later and Angelique and I picked her up at home and went to Mesermize Dungeon with her. slave Flo complained about her uncomfortable inverse heel shoes and Angelique took the opportunity to tease slave Flo in public chat. That was fun – but didn’t bring us into trouble either.


February 23rd – Diomita and Angelique dressed up in fetish clothes: at club Domme a Domme, at Mesmerize Dungeon with slave Flo and at Heavy Bondage Club

After slave Flo left, Angelique and I went back to club Domme a Domme and later to Heavy Bondage Club. It was still exciting but nothing happened until we went visiting a friend of ours. But that’s something I won’t share in this diary *winks*. Girls do have their secrets.

I spent Sunday afternoon with Angelique. She wasn’t dressed in fetish clothes anymore but wearing casual clothing, just what you’d do in RL after a long night before. We went to club Domme a Domme again and spent some time there. Then Angelique offered to give a fashion show for me. She had been shopping again and wanted to get my approval or disapproval for what she selected. We went home and I sat down and enjoyed the show. Angelique got some really great clothes, amoung which were pants that really make a great butt *winks*.

February 24th: Angelique and Diomita at club Domme a Domme / Angelique giving a fashion show for Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home

Mistress Jenny joined us later when Angelique wasn’t yet done with her show. Mistress and I caught up with our mutual news while watching the fashion show. Luckily Mistress Jenny unlocked my cuffs and the elegance collar so that I could have a relaxed night, as she had RL obligations again that night. After Mistress Jenny left us, Angelique helped me finding the pants, that I really liked. We got them for both of us!

February 24th: Freaks at club Domme a Domme (upper left) / Diomita with slave Flo and Angelique at Heavy Bondage Club (lower left and 2nd from left) / Angelique and Diomita at club DeLust wearing the new pants

I started my night at club Domme a Domme again and I couldn’t refrain from taking a picture of a couple of freaks there. Second Life is so rich of variety, there’s room for every fetish. I moved on to Heavy Bondage Club and summoned slave Flo to there when she came inworld. And Angelique joined us there later, too. It was relaxed and enjoyable and we stayed about one hour. Angelique, slave Flo and I played a round of greedy at home, then Angelique and I winded down at club Delust. We teased each other there in public and had a bit of fun. Don’t the pants look great?
And that’s it for this diary entry.

Diary 2019 (23) February 11th – 13th Rezzday anniversaries

Monday, February 11th, was my 11th rezzday anniversary in Second Life. After I wrote already 2 entries looking back at my 11th year (see Dio’s 11th year in Second Life Feb 11th, 2019 Part I and Part II) how was the day in Second Life? Forutnately I had some time to spent inworld. Mistress Jenny had tied me up in a corset, that also restricted my arms – and she had set a renamer, so that when I talked, it was not “Diomita Maurer:” but “It is my rez day please spank me:”.
Set up like this she took me to several places in the afternoon, we were at club Domme a Domme, at Heavy Bondage Club and at Mesermize Dungeon. Mistress got several IMs and so did I. But none dared to spank me in Mistress’ presence. It was fun though nonetheless. Thank you, Mistress Jenny for this lovely idea!

February 11th – Diomita’s 11th rezzday anniversary in Second Life: Mistress Jenny, Fatty, slave Flo, slave slut cecy, Angelique and Diomita at several clubs and at home.

At night I did get some rezzday spanks! Mistress and I were at club Domme a Domme and finally someone dared to spank me – although Mistress Jenny had removed the renamer. It was Fatty, who dared and also punished me for calling her Fatty. We also visited club DeLust shortly but nothing happend there. And then we had a night within the family. slave slut cecy was inworld shortly and delivered a spank. And Angelique delivered the full set of 11 spanks! We had a long team round of Skipee (Mistress and slave Flo won this time against Angelique and me). It was a relaxed and enjoyable night as it should be. Thank you, all!

Tuesday, February 12th, Mistress and I met with Angelique and slave Flo in the afternoon. We went inside of our house where I noticed that slave Flo had added an extra harness to her outfit. She defended herself that she was looking for a surprise for her upcoming rezzday and that Angelique inspired and helped her selecting – but adding to the outfit without permission? Mistress Jenny was not amused … or maybe she was. Flo had to get a lesson and thus gave reason for fitting her into the same corset like I was in the day before. Mistress and I had that in mind anyway *winks*.

February 12th: Mistress Jenny, Diomita, Angelique and slave Flo at home (upper and lower left) / Mistress Jenny and Ehesklavin Diomita at club Domme a Domme, at Puerto Esclava (upper and lower middle) and at Heavy Bondage Club with Angelique and slave Flo (upper right) / Mistress Jenny getting spoiled (lower right)

Our night was enjoyable and relaxed. Mistress Jenny and I visited club Domme a Domme, Puerto Esclava and Heavy Bondage Club, where Angelique and slave Flo joined us later. We had fun teasing and chatting, and had a greedy together later. Too bad that Argi didn’t get inworld as it was her 11th rezzday anniversary.
Before Mistress and I retreated to our skybox I prepared slave Flo for her rezzday with a titeler “It’s my 10(!)th rezzday anniversary today” and a renamer “I desire rezzday spanks”. The rezzday fun continued.

Wednesday, February 13th, we celebrated our slave Flo’s 10th rezzday anniversary. When I got inworld at night I found a picture of Flo in my inbox. She made the picture herself. She couldn’t resist adding a long skirt to her restrictive corset making it look like a gown and really festive – really nice.
First thing Mistress and I did was giving our Flo her rezzday spanks, five from each of us. Then we took her to Psi’s realm. It was quite full there but nonetheless only one sub dared to give Flo just one spank.
That changed when BC (Baroness Capelo) showed up on the scene. Once she knew about Flo’s rezzday (and it was really obvious), she began spanking her … and not just one spank per year. slave Flo’s bum really began to glow, the sound of the spanks filling the room. And when BC was done, she said “That were 3 spanks per year on the right buttock, let’s continue with the left”. Fortunately for Flo I brought up the subject that we saw BC’s twin sister in the room. Well, not really, but on guest had the same hairstyle, the same colour, almost the same shape and really looked like BC. BC called her over to have a closer look and stopped spanking slave Flo.

February 13th – Flo’s 10(!)th rezzday anniversary: Flo at home in her gown / Flo getting her rezzday spanks at home, at Psi’s realm with BC and at Lochme / Mistress Jenny and Diomita with slave Flo at club DeLust

We moved on to Lochme with our rezzday girl where she got some more spanks from a nice submissive girl and finally went to club DeLust. Mistress Jenny and I relaxed and slave Flo danced for us and the crowd. She did that quite artistic having her arms tight up beind her back under the corset.

Simploring 2019 (20) Delicatessen – Tell Me a Story

I picked “Delicatessen – Tell Me a story” from scoop.it SL Destinations for another simploring tour related to art in Second Life. It is a homestead owned and created by Meilo Minotaur. And I learned that Delicatessen is already open for more than 8 years with different installation, this one is “Delicatessen – Tell Me a Story

Upon landing your stand in front of 10 boxes, each contains a free artful fantasy avatar. There’re birds, animals, a boy and several girls to choose from. I selected a skinny girl with an Asian touch. Also upon landing you get at notecard with the background and the thoughts from Meilo Minotaur:

“Whoever tells a tale, adds a point,” it is said in Portugal. In english we could say: whoever tells a tale adds a tail. “Tell me a story” is an installation that calls for the participation of the visitors. Contrary to what is usual, in which the image helps to illustrate the story, I ask you to tell me a story that links the various scenes of the installation.
The characters of the island have their correspondence in avatars. They do not have names, you can give any name you think fit them. It will not be necessary to use all the characters or scenes, you will use those that you understand.
The stories will be told as you please: only with text, text and image, video or whatever you want. If you want you can give them an ending or leave them in suspense. If necessary I will add a final scene to the installation. I can choose only one story or several, this part is still open. I still do not know yet how they will be presented, depending on what you do.
I’m waiting for you.
Thank you
meilo.minotaur@gmail.com

That sounds interesting and it is! Delicatessen is mostly held in shades of grey. At one side is a huge mountain and skycrapers are built in a way that they almost snuggle into the mountain. Opposed to the mountain is a large swamp with many trees and their crowns build a platform. On the platform a several small huts, inhabited by birds. And as birds can fly, there’s no stair up there.

Impressions from “Delicatessen -Tell Me a Story” (1)

I encountered several fantasy beings and most of them correspond to the fantasy avatars you can pick upon landing. That’s very obvious when you get to a group of three humanoid avatars with 2 girls and the boy, the fourth small girl in this picture is me *winks*.

Impressions from “Delicatessen -Tell Me a Story” (2)

The seperate scenes seem not to connect at all. A huge grasshopper reading a book to a girl, 2 bird avatars with antlers dancing on the tree platform, a group of animal avatars standing under the hut of a mushroom together with a girl (for some reason that scene reminded me of the three holy kings) or a huge swan holding a birdcage in its bead with two dancing beings.

Impressions from “Delicatessen -Tell Me a Story” (3)

I encountered a few scary stork like creatures standing in groups. Depending on your viewing angle their heads look like skulls, and depending on your viewing angle you see their dense feathering – or not. Another scene looks like a procession for a high priest.

Impressions from “Delicatessen -Tell Me a Story” (4)

The whole scenery with all it’s fog makes Delicatessen looking cold and unreal, which is for sure intended. The 10 characters themself do look not scary, some of them even happy and carefree. The scenery is like walking through a strange dream. Can I tell Meilo a story? Anything combining the seperate scenes? No, I can’t. But I enjoyed exploring and looking at the single scences and searching to come up with something.

For sure “Delicatessen – Tell Me a Story” is worth a visit and it’s very intriguing. Thank you Meilo for creating and let’s hope that you get many inspiring stories.
