Friday Find: Second Afterlife Cemetery

It’s “Corpse Week” this week at StrawberrySingh.com. For our Monday Meme we thought about “Landscapes with a Corpse,” and so for our Friday Find it only seemed proper to visit an SL Cemetery. It turns out that many of you have been to Linden Memorial, so today I thought I’d visit Second Afterlife Cemetery.

Second Afterlife Cemetery

As you’ll see in the video, gravesites mark both SL and RL passings. Marking an SL passing in SL only makes sense. And I thought marking RL passings in SL was quite interesting. Statistics are that after the initial events, most RL graves are never visited again, not even once. So to let someone rest in a virtual place where friends anywhere across this earth can remember them is quite beautiful.

Second Afterlife Cemetery is maintained by Lena Anthony, whose own tombstone reads,

Rezzed 10/30/2007
Unrezzed 4/5/2011
But refuses to cross over.

As I understand it, she’s no longer alive in-world, but her ghost appears as needed to maintain the cemetery and help out new internees.

ESSENTIAL: Set your sun position to midnight. Or you might prefer the spring feeling of noon lighting. But for me the darkness helps me go to… well… a darker place.

Syenta

As usual, my clumsy video is rendered almost sublime thanks to the beauty of a soundtrack from CCMixter. “Half Grey Latte” is by Syenta, featuring Kevin MacLeod and KungFu.

Second Afterlife Cemetery is so tranquil, unsettling, disturbingly comforting, and bittersweet, I think it must be more than a blog post. I think I have to move in. I’ll let you know when you can come visit me.

Friday Find: Paradiso

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 →

I met Ebbe Linden!

Friday Find: A Petrovsky Flux There has been a lot of buzz about this sim recently all over twitter and some travel blogs that I felt compelled to go see it myself. I first heard about it through Ziki Questi when she blogged about how it may eventually disappear. So I made a note to […] Continue reading →

Arabian Nights

This is not the typical Friday Find that I usually do every week where I share an image of a location with you, but I will share a couple of locations/slurls that may be of interest. I took the first image at Illusions Arabian Marketplace. It’s a very pretty build with bold textures and I’ve […] Continue reading →
