Where Have You Been? S02E16: The Nature Collective

In this episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?”  we vis­it The Nature Col­lec­tive — or rather, we vis­it the Col­lec­tive’s head­quar­ters and the work of some of their members.

The Nature Col­lec­tive was cre­at­ed with the goal of cul­ti­vat­ing a com­mu­ni­ty around regions, spaces and projects which share a com­mon focus on nature. It is their hope to fos­ter a move­ment to help peo­ple engage and recon­nect with the won­der and joy of nature, in the vir­tu­al world and beyond.

The Col­lec­tive was the brain­child of Emmalee Ever­gar­den, and she has drawn togeth­er a group of ded­i­cat­ed vol­un­teers who share her com­mit­ment to nature spaces, and who form the vol­un­teer staff of The Collective.

To begin explor­ing the near­ly 100 nature des­ti­na­tions that are part of the Nature Col­lec­tive in Sec­ond Life, just vis­it their head­quar­ters and pick up your Explor­er HUD — and off you go. TNC are also mem­bers of the “For­ev­er Tourist” network.

To learn more, catch this episode, which airs on Wednes­days and Sat­ur­days on Aug 10, 13, 17, 20, 24,  and 27 at 12 noon and 4pm SLT/Pacific (8pm and mid­night in the UK).

Where Have You Been? S02E15: Hello Kitty Tribute

In this episode of our orig­i­nal series, “Where Have You Been?”  we vis­it the 4- region “Hel­lo Kit­ty” trib­ute theme park on the Astralia regions. Hel­lo Kit­ty is the lit­tle adorable white cat char­ac­ter who is num­bered among the high­est gross­ing media fran­chis­es of all time.

Astralia Cre­ations is a cloth­ing and décor cre­ator in Sec­ond Life, fea­tur­ing a wide vari­ety of prod­ucts, many of which fea­ture a graph­ic style and col­or palette sim­i­lar to the pop­u­lar Japan­ese char­ac­ter Hel­lo Kit­ty and the addi­tion­al char­ac­ters that make up the Hel­lo Kit­ty brand.

Hel­lo Kit­ty is a promi­nent part of the cute­ness cul­ture, or kawaii aes­thet­ic, of Japan­ese pop­u­lar cul­ture which includes enter­tain­ment, cloth­ing, food, toys, per­son­al appear­ance, and man­ner­isms. In Kitty’s world there are at least ten char­ac­ters, includ­ing Kit­ty her­self, and a host of oth­er objects and details in that world’s sig­na­ture sim­ple style.

This episode airs on Wednes­days and Sat­ur­days from July 27 to August 6 inclusive.

We wel­come you to come along and join the stu­dio audi­ence for this spe­cial live show. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/SLB%20Imagination/110/188/24

Our Fea­tured Music today is relax­ing, tune­ful and large­ly instru­men­tal Smooth Jazz.

***

Because we’re run­ning this spe­cial live edi­tion, we won’t be broad­cast­ing “Where Have You Been?” at the usu­al times today. How­ev­er we will be repeat­ing this live edi­tion in the reg­u­lar time slots on the 29th and July 2nd.

“Where Have You Been?” visits Svarga and discovers SLRPS

In Series 2, Episode 9, we vis­it a fab­u­lous loca­tion from the dim past: Svar­ga. It was cre­at­ed in 2006 by Laukosar­gas Svarog, and even in those days it was a must-see des­ti­na­tion — an excel­lent exam­ple of the vir­tu­al builder’s craft.  It’s immer­sive, and uses a rich mix­ture of shape and tex­tur­ing to evoke the world of the Gods from Slav­ic mythology.

It’s one of the regions pre­served by Lin­den Lab as being of spe­cial his­tor­i­cal inter­est — and we also dis­cuss the SLRPS (Sec­ond Life Region Preser­va­tion Soci­ety) and some of the oth­er his­toric regions pre­served under its banner.
