Weekly Roundup & Friday Find: Xin

Friday Find: Xin

Friday Find: xin.

> SLurl
> Flickr Group

Xin is a mens store owned by Superjaix and he recently redid the mainstore. The sim is very well done, brilliant textures and lots to explore. The store itself is on a small part of the whole sim, the rest of the place has a bit of a post-apocalyptic grungy feel to it. I decided to do a couple black and white images as well. You can see more of my images of the sim on my flickr.

There is also a hunt going on at the sim with a free unisex bomber jacket available, if you find it. You can see an image of the jacket and a hunt hint on Superjaix’s flickr.

Weekly Roundup

  1. Photographer of the Week: Len Douglas – Len’s images have such a natural magazine feel to them, they are incredible. A must follow!
  2. Linden Lab requests SLurls – Linden Lab is asking us to share slurls to scenic places where they will take photo field-trips to. Share your favorite places in Second Life!
  3. Inworld Photo Field Trip – Linden Lab has already announced this month’s field trip. It will be on Wednesday, April 22 at 10:30am SLT at the Trace!
  4. The Drax Files: World Makers [Episode 28: Whiskey Monday] – I’m sure you all have seen this already but since I haven’t blogged Weekly Roundup in a while, I missed blogging it earlier, and I definitely wanted to mention this episode because I find Whiskey Monday incredibly inspirational.
  5. the drax files radio hour [with jo yardley] – Speaking of Drax, if you haven’t caught up on the last few weeks of the podcast, make sure to listen in. He’s covered a lot of the latest tech news, especially the demise of SL GO because OnLive has been acquired by Sony.
  6. Second Life in the News! – There has been quite a bit of positive press about Second Life these days. I thought I would share some of the articles I’ve found:
    > Remnants of Earth: the MMO inside Second Life on PCGamer
    > Second Life is Staying Alive on Good Magazine
    > A surrealist Second Life designer on the role of pure play on Hopes&Fears
  7. The Button on Reddit – I am kind of obsessed with it, but I haven’t clicked it yet! Have you clicked the button?
  8. Linden Lab’s PhotoBooth Contest – Quite a few people have asked me why the winners haven’t been named yet. I spoke to the Lindens and the winners have been chosen and will be announced very soon, they are just getting all the paperwork in order. So just thought I would share that for those that have been waiting!
  9. TerryLynn Melody – TerryLynn Melody is a Second Life Artist who has entered a real world contest for musicians on ArtistSignal.com. I thought I would share this article so the Second Life community can help her reach her goals and win $10,000! Click over to read Lei Lexenstar’s detailed blog post about it and then you can vote on ArtistSignal.com.
  10. What Does Your Taste In Men Say About You? – Obviously just had to do this one.

Have a great weekend! <3

Friday Find: Paradiso Ziki Questi sent me a landmark to Paradiso a few weeks ago. Today when I dropped by, I got a notification that Paradiso might close in 18 days. It’s a beautiful water sim which has a serene feel to it. I’m not sure why it may be closing in 18 days, but […] Continue reading →
