There won’t be a Designing Worlds show this week. Instead you are invited to join us at SL19B, where Saffia will be hosting the first of the Meet the Lindens events at 2pm SLT at the SL19B Arboretum in one of the three audience regions –
SLB Wonderous: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/SLB%20Wonderous/236/2/25
SLB Fascinate: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/SLB%20Fascinate/4/243/25
SLB: Exhilarate: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/SLB%20Exhilarate/235/233/23

Today Saffia will be talking to Patch Linden, who has some exciting news to share. And there’ll be lots to say about Linden Homes too!

If you can’t join us live, then you’ll be able to catch the discussion at: https://youtu.be/g9UJjr7sZxk

Then, over the course of this week, at 2pm SLT every day in the Arboretum, Saffia will be talking to more Lindens – and the Moles.

On Tuesday, in a pre-recorded session, Saffia will be talking to Oberwolf Linden and Philip Linden, talking about strategy, the Metaverse – and much more!

On Wednesday, in a second pre-recorded interview, we meet the Marketing Team, cosisting of Second Life Marketing Team, consisting of Feuling Linden, Chief Marketing Officer, Brett Linden, Vice President of Marketing, Darcy Linden, Director of Marketing, Strawberry, Senior Social Media Manager, Maveric Lindeen, Senior Marketing Analyst, and Emika Linden, Senior Marketing Manager.

Although these two sessions have been pre-recorded (due to the difficulty of matching up schedules), there will be a chance to discuss the issues raised – and questions that can’t be answered can be forwarded from these sessions to the Lab.

On Thursday, Saffia will be talking live to Grimpity and Mojo Linden about technical issues, what they’s been doing over the last year and plans for the future.

And finally on Friday, we’ll have a chance to Meet the Moles, and learn about the vital work these residents working for the Lab are accomplishing.

All the talks will be livestreamed on YouTube, and available afterwards.

Thanks to Strawberry Linden for the livestreaming and the posters!

Poster designed by Miss Breezy Carver

This week we have a very special archive show.

The Designing Worlds Team was saddened to learn this week of the passing of Breezy Carver, for many years one of the leading lights of New Babbage. Breezy was a keen blogger, a stalwart supper of Relay for Life and, as the owner of Piermont Landing in Wheatstone Waterways, New Babbage, a leading hostess for wonderful Balls.

As a tribute to Breezy, this week we shall be showing the episode in which she appeared – the Theft of the Carver Diamonds, featuring not only Breezy and Edward Pearse but, of course, the indomitable Mr Biggins!

You can watch the show here, or on Vimeo at: https://vimeo.com/510126220

Or you can join us at 2pm SLT today at our Watch Party in the beautiful Designing Worlds studios in the Garden of Dreams!

This is a great show, and includes a tour of Piedmont Landing by Breezy herself. Don’t miss it!

Telethon for RFL 2009

This coming weekend sees the climax of Relay for Life of Second Life 2022 – which we will be covering later in the season. So it seems a good time to look back in this week’s show to a former Relay for Life – in 2009.

You can see the show on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel at: https://vimeo.com/371357132. Or you can join us at 2pm for our Watch Party in the beautiful Designing Worlds studios in the Garden of Dreams!

Firstly we talked to Aeolus Cleanslate and looked at the wonderful New Babbage campsite, from one of the most inentive steampunk sims in the Second Life world – an imagining of an Exposition Universalle, based upon that of 1889 in Paris when the Eiffel Tower was first revealed.  Aeolus Cleanslate explained, how under the Team Captain Breezy Carver, the New Babbage team created this amazing display – and also created the special Mars sim that won the overall prize for best designed sim!

New Babbage Build at RFL 2009

Then we talked to KiVanyel Adria of the Elf Circle, who told us not only about the beautiful build that the Elf Circle had created, but also the full programme of events that the Elves had created to share their community with the wider world. And we spoke with Helena Kiama and Jessie Sinister who were two of the key builders on the beautiful Wonders build, re-creating four of the Wonders of the Ancient World (the ones that they chose were the Temple of Diana at Ephesus, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Lighthouse of Alexandria and the Colossus of Rhodes).

Wonders of the World Build at RFL 2009

And finally we spoke with Zander Greene and Lauren Thibaud of the Friends Fight Cancer group who had created Anatomica, the most amazing sim, which combined information and a great interactive learning experience about the physiology of cells and cancer – with a fast and furious game where you got to dress in a red suit for surfing the bloodstream and blast cancer cells yourself!

And there was also a stunningly beautiful ballroom in the sky for those who ventured up to 1,500 feet!

Filmed at the 2009 Telethon location, the build designed by Dellybean North and landscaped by Anhayla Lycia.

Hunros Mine

In the second of two shows dedicated to the Faire, we talk toZander Greene, and then explore ten of the beautiful regions that made up the Fairelands this year, with the aid of Bain Finch, our camera person – and the other ten and some of the fabulous events that were such a feature of the Faire, captured by our photographer, Wildstar Beaumont.

Temasek, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

Today is one of our Archive shows, falling between our two visits to Fantasy Faire. We will be looking back to November 2012, when we explored the island of Temasek with its owner, Veritas Raymaker.

Join us today, Monday 28th March 2022 at 2pm SLT in our beautiful studio in Garden of Dreams, or watch the show on the web, either here on the blog or on Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/611733367.

Temasek is inspired by the island of Singapore, and Veritas has brought something of the history, geography and ecology, and the culture of Singapore into the virtual world. Ranging from Mangrove swamps and a fishing village to a second world war fort (complete with an aerial attack!) to Concorde and modern builds … and not forgetting a look at traditional food on the way … this is a very rich and exciting environment to explore!

Elrik Merlin was on holiday when the show was shot, so Saffia is joined by Zander Greene as co-presenter as Veritas takes us on a journey around his island from the tunnels beneath to high in the sky!

All this makes for a fascinating show – so make sure that you don’t miss it! Do come and join us at 2pm!

Today, Monday 4th April, Designing Worlds pays a second visit to the Second Life Home and Garden Expo, which, sadly, is now closed. The premium event for Home and Garden designers in Second Life (and breedables too!), Designing Worlds has long been a supporter – and a sponsor too.

From 2pm today you can see the show on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel at: https://vimeo.com/channels/dworlds. Or you can join us for our Watch Party in the beautiful Designing Worlds studios in the Garden of Dreams!

Then with the aid of our terrific machinematographer Bain Finch,, we explore the sixteen homes (and after the showing – we’ll tell you who won!).

We also talk to designers Elizabeth Burleigh, whose store is the Blue Moon Atelier Gallery, and Ethy Ðrαgoste Fιяεнαωк-Knight, whose store is The Crystal Witch – and who is also one of the Expo Organisers about their experiences of the Expo.

And we take a visit to two favourite stores (Little Big Designs and Kaerri’s) before we head for the very special lantern ceremony that takes place each day at the Expo.

It makes for a fascinating show that you won’t want to miss, so come to the Watch Party in Garden of Dreams or tune in to watch on the web!

In this episode, Designing Worlds visited the Second Life Home and Garden Expo, an annual event we have supported since 2009.

In this show we talk to the organiser of the Expo – Kaerri Rae, and learn about various aspects of the event. We look at some of the great international-themed builds we saw at the Expo this year, with a film from Bain Finch, while Wildstar Beaumont shares photographs of some of the amazing gardens and landscaping that was on display. And we meet up with DaveOSaurus to take a look at Waffleville, the community area for tinies and dinkies.

Designing Worlds sponsored the Home and Garden Decorating Contest, and in this episode we take a look at the undecorated homes (thanks to Wildstar’s pictures!). We’ll be showing you what the decorated homes looked like in our second Homes and Garden Expo show – to be shown in two weeks time.

And finally we will the Lantern Ceremony, held every day at 4pm, a time for reflection and remembrance.
