The Weekend in Video Review

What a superb weekend, yielding some of the highest online traffic in Second Life this year.

Here in London City, on Sunday night 109 avatars were present, which is quite remarkable considering that not more than 100 visitors should be able to be in the same region at the same time.

It demonstrates that when a region is full, if you persevere and continue to teleport, or better still, walk over from a neighbouring region, you can bend the grid to your will!   It also makes us wonder just how many people would have been here if Linden Lab did not impose agent limits!

Enjoy the video of the weekend in the London City, the single most popular destination since 2010.

Male Accessories in London City3

Going back just three of four years, finding clothing, accessories and other male bits was hard as it appeared that nearly all content was aimed at female avatars.

It's good to see that times have changed radically and that some emerging brands of a few years back are now key players in male apparel.

The London City estate now has a huge collection of male oriented stores and today we feature just some of the stores in the region London City3 tailored specifically towards the male shopper.

Check out the fabulous male skins, clothing and accessories available in just one street of London City Victoria.

Roby's sells photo real skins, shapes, eyes, hair and muscles!
Skins and Shapes: Roby Style

Clothing fashion from smart and formal to sexy and scanty
Fashion: Peckers

Sexy look clothing for men, including mesh avatars with big muscles and appliers.
Muscles, Skins and Avis: RGDW

The most essential bit of kit for your avarar is available from VAWs with 3 stores in the estate
Essential Tackle: VAW

Facebook buys Oculus

We're not surprised at all.

The super lightweight 3D interface is barely noticeable when worn and is frankly so comfortable that I forget I am wearing it.  In fact, I often leave the house with it still attached as I head off down the road to Tesco's.

Personally, I cannot wait to view facebook via this discreet gadget and if I ever need to see Billy, rather than looking across the room at him, he can logon and take a place in my viewing queue.

More about it here

This is definitely a step in the right direction.  Who wants to be surrounded with the world, when we can live the real thing on the internet?

I just hope they refine the power supply.

Ruby Babylon returns to Madame Lala's

Two years after her sensational sacking for being drunk in charge of a microphone, the semi-sober, extra wide icon, Miss Ruby Babylon returns to the stage at Madame Lala's London Revue.

Ruby Babylon returns with a brand new regurgitated show from the days when the club specialised in show tunes and cabaret.

What's more, the club interior has also been regurgitated to best represent the initial concept and reflect the reality of its real life counterpart.

Madame Lala's is a camp and glitzy club full of chintz and 'ladies' with large wigs and lashes.  Everyone is welcome, all you need is a sense of humour.

Madame Lala's complete with its original set and music, returns on Friday at 3.30pm SL (10.30pm UK) with a show not to be missed!

Visit Madame Lala's:

Great White Shark - Lydia Tracking Station

A Great White Shark will soon be in British waters and you can monitor her route towards the English coast at London Seaside.

News sources report "Great White shark Lydia continues crossing the mid-Atlantic, heading towards the United Kingdom. First caught and tagged with a tracking device off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida, in March 2013 a great white shark nicknamed Lydia has travelled more than half way across the Atlantic. Her last satellite check-in had her 745 miles off the Irish coast."

"Lydia has meandered up the U.S. East Coast to Nova Scotia, Canada following a rich chain of aquatic life that includes sea lions before turning east for Europe. Lydia is one of the few female great white sharks to be tagged. She is thought to be in her early twenties and may be pregnant. If she enters the Mediterranean, she may swim to a known shark birthing area near Turkey."

Now you can track Lydia's progress across the Atlantic Ocean as she heads towards the UK by visiting the 'Lydia Tracking Station' at the London City Seaside.

We continue to monitor the waters off the coast of London City and will report the sightings as they happen.
