I was sitting around in my office chair wondering what I might be doing this weekend, especially with Halloween landing nicely on a Friday. Hmmmm, there must be something going on, but what?
And then I looked up and it was obvious!
Who better to party with and what better a place to go than Foul Whisperings, Strange Matters!
You have a few days to find an outlandish costume, but look for spooky avvies, live music, and fun at MacBeth (229,41,32), this Friday, ... more » »

I am sensing I am near the end of my exploration of this radical new NMC project. I have been all round this place that seems so far from 4 sided prim rooms in Second Life… it seems… alive. Today, I found myself in this murky red room, that I could not really find the edges.
It had a sense of being almost womb like, yet was far from having a nurturing sense. The upper edges have some almost disturbing ... more » »
I was wandering in this place, being drawn to the glow of strong daylight pouring in from above. Being cautious of climbing the stairs, as I almost expect to get trapped on some Escher-like endless set of steps, I am wondering about faint sounds emitting from above.
The exploration here continues as I seek out who resides here. It is as if someone is here that I never see, and I wander places thinking are they just rooms or something more? ... more » »
The new place of mystery shows sign of celebration, perhaps? Maybe the music playing is Eric Burdon and the Animals? Like everything in this place, there is more than just meets the eye, this new build by NMC Virtual Worlds will tease your senses.

You enter a place of deep mystery, of sight and sound– no it is not the Twilight Zone, but a new exciting build from NMC that will take you on an experience in Second Life like no other.
