SL Destinations: LEA6 – Color Key

Greetings explorers,
This week We decided to revisit the LEA sims and came across one that was very mysterious; LEA6 “Color Key”.

28.10_001 27.10_021 27.10_020

It was interesting enough that we paused to take a look.

1027explore_007 1027explore_003 27.10_009 27.10_024 27.10_001

The build by Rebeca Bashly was interactive and had a hidden meaning,
“It is all about human nature, breaking your spine to find answers that are under your nose.”

1027explore_020 27.10_031 27.10_019 27.10_039

Be sure to check it out as its only here until the 1st of next month and after that its gone forever.

SL Destinations: Notre Dame Cathedral

Welcome Explorers & Photog Enthusiasts!,

In today’s post we head off to a very tranquil location, Notre Dame Cathedral.

Notre Dame Cathedral is a quiet and peaceful area to sit, relax or meditate.

Bold architecture, statues and candle lit pools make this a perfect spot to snap pictures.

Take in the beautiful surroundings while exploring the gardens, woodland and smaller buildings.

Although Roman Catholic in nature, the Sim is presented as a retreat for everyone on the grid and should be viewed as an artistic representation as much as a spiritual venue.

We hope you enjoy Your time at this peaceful spot.
‘Til next time

SL Destinations: The Robot Sanitarium

Sitting high above the ground, inside the head of the Jetsons’ robot, Rosie, stands a Robot Sanitorium .
Ever wonder what happens to those robots that are just a little…off?

Inside lies the answer….

 Bots Rosies Head

The sim “Whimsy Kaboom” is home to the many mentally malfunctioning mechanoids of the metaverse.

Oct02A2013_010
When you arrive, You will notice they have TP points to other fun areas, located on the left.

Oct022013_020
We chose The Space floater 1rst, It is fun and makes for sweet photo ops. Pose balls are already in place, Jump on one and You can soar, swing and float among the stars. There are poseballs for you and a friend to have a wonderfully tender dance as well.

 Oct022013_005 Bots Us Floating Oct022013_009

It was great seeing Sputnik in the scene as well as a trailing Meteor zipping by, We took Liberties of chilling on them LOL.

Bots Us on Sputnik Oct022013_019
Once you are done hanging out in space, Use The rocket ship pad to return to the Entrance of the Sanitorium.

Bots Reception
Entering Inside, there’s absolutely no indication you’re inside Rosie’s bland blue head.

BOTROSIE2 Bots Control hub
The building looks like an old factory, with soot-stained bricks, dark metal grates for the floors, and dirty windows.

BOTROSIE

Ramps and pipes and machinery are everywhere.

Bots Robot maker 1 Bots Robot maker  2

The sanitorium is chock full of robot history, trivia and stressed out mechanical celebrities who needed time out in rehab.
There are PA announcements & warnings not to feed the robots, and to watch out for their cunning behavior.

hedonism-bot-futurama-2942551-800-600

Rebellion is noticed as we see defaced Laws of Robotics posters marked by an anarchy symbol.
Be sure to check out the wall of historic escapes they are hilarious!

 Oct022013_028

They have everything a clinic would have. Rosie the nurse passes out meds, try one and see the effects, its a hoot!

Bots Nurse Oct02A2013_001
Stressed Mechanoids sometimes have the need to be evaluated, & air their concerns with someone who will understand.
No appt needed to see the shrink, walk in and lie on a couch, a robot psychiatrist asks if you are having problems with your motherboard.

“Shrinkbot whispers: Have any problems? Let me help you.”

 BOT PSYCH DOC

There places of leisure for Bots who are making progress in their counseling and rehab. Passes are merited,Only for those on good behavior. They get passes to visit the Beach on the ground level. Use the TP point at the entrance of the building to hang out down there.,

OR…fancy a nice Hot Oil bath? Oh Look, Bender the Celebrity! Shhh, He doesn’t like to be noticed… look away…look away

 Bots Oil Bath

Stable Bots also get clearance to spend time in the Robot Sanitorium Cinema.
“Ticket Giver: Please touch the ticket for entry to the robot theater.”

Bots Cinema
They get to watch TreetTV and classic robot themed movies.

If you think You’d like to experience all this activity firsthand as a Bot?
This infirmary offers the ability to convert your fleshy bioform into a Droid.

Flying fish, brightly colored birds and butterflies will stir your imagination.
