Dusty Springfield Premiere on Saturday



Perhaps one of the most iconic looks of the 1960's belongs to singer Dusty Springfield, with her white backcombed hair and thick eyeliner.  It was a look that so many have tried to emulate.

Dusty, hit the charts in 1963 with I Only Want To Be With You, and from that moment on both sides of the Atlantic, a star was born.  She followed her first hit up with many more, including Wishin' and Hopin', I Only Want To Be With You, I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself, You Don't Have To Say You Love Me, and Son of A Preacher Man and many many more.

Dusty is appearing for the first time ever in London City on Saturday (Michaelmas Eve!) and the party starts at 12pm SL time (8pm UK), the the show an hour later at 1pm SL time.

Lucy wore a wig!



Its a question that millions of people over the years have asked themselves.   Did billionaire actress Lucille Ball own her golden locks, or were they bought?

We all knew she added a bit of colour, but the question that has preoccupied the world for years, is, does that hair belong to her, or is it from the Desilu props department?

Well according to a survey of London City visitors, we can reveal that the consensus by 56% of them, is that Lucy was indeed wearing a wig!

It needs to be mentioned however, that a lot of you vehemently defended Lucy and felt most strongly that her carrot top was her own!

Thanks for taking part.  Another world-stopping survey again soon!

London Support - We're Hiring!





Four years ago, London City became the first of the Linden Lab Official Community Gateways, with new residents 'born' directly into the estate, and starting their adventure in Second Life.

We have a  trusted team of specially trained residents known as London Support, helping new users acclimatise to the virtual-world.

We are currently looking to increase our team of Support Agents, (particularly from 2pm to 9pm Second Life Time).  A shift is typically a few hours and is semi-regular, 3 or more times per week.

We have a familiar faces policy, which means we recruit from the community of visitors and tend not to hire people that we do not know.  It is better for all concerned if we get to know each other first.

You do not have to be an expert, but you do have to be friendly and engaging.

If you are a born helper and like the idea of giving back some of your skills to the new users, and you are able to work within a police guidelines, please see the information contained in the tab Our Team  at the top of this page.



September in London



Enjoy the new season here in London City.

The Asylum




It's the internet, where anyone in the world can access it, and consequently, some are more balanced than others. 

High time, we offered a counselling service in London City.  Presenting:  The Elise Banx Lunatic Asylum.  Head warder Elise, who is famous for her empathetic skills, will dish out useful and practical advice, in the calm Bedlam like surroundings of our comfy sanitarium.




You can visit the Asylum here (but please don't feed the inmates or poke bananas through bars)
