  4. Burning Life is pretty fun. Its like the RL version. Builders from all over come to like 5 different SIMs and build things that you could never imagine and at the end they burn a huge burning man figure its amazing the three years i have seen it. They come up with new things every year. :pint:

    Just a reminder that Burning Life is on this week....go and check it out - I am also a greeter, so you might have me welcome you. But I think it might be good to post some pics of stuff you found interesting whilst you explore the 22 sims!!!!!!!!!:)

    I saw many people used their plots there to plop down what they already had on their islands and put up a landmark. Sort of goes against the spirit of the place. I did see many interesting things made there.

    Did any of you take a piece of land and make something?

    To anybody who wanted to ride the bumper-duckies ride there: The ducks have all escaped and are running amok on the sim. My apologies. *giggles*

    Here are my pictures from Burning Life.....I think we only got to see one sim out of the 22 - I think it should have been longer than a week. Sad I didnt get to see more. Was good fun though!

    As if the desert weren't hot enough already.

    That's Callia, or "debs" on the far right. Aren't we just too hot? :D

    Yes, my friend, don't worry. More pictures are coming. Like this:

    Cheech and Chong were always big in my life.



    [​IMG]
    I should have gotten some friends to join me at The End. It would have made a much better picture.



    [​IMG]
    I don't know what this is. It's just pretty.



    [​IMG]
    That tiny dot beside the three balls and the pool is me. This should give you an idea of the scale of Burning Life.



    [​IMG]
    Here in the desert, even the buildings need sunglasses.



    [​IMG]
    Damn you! Damn you all to Hell!



    [​IMG]
    It's crawling with monkeys!



    [​IMG]
    A nice aerial shot of the general area. Like I said, it's big!

    The laws of physics don't apply in Second Life.

    It appears my equipment is getting away from me.

    A telescope under a tree? I just had to look through it.

    Smily!!! Welcome! [​IMG]

    I'm surprised you didn't get a picture of me knocking all the ducks out of the tub and setting them free! [​IMG]

    Thank you, Polly. I'm glad you like them. :) I have a lot more pictures to post, so keep an eye out for them.

    Kat! :hug: Great to see you! I'm sorry I didn't get a picture of you driving the rubber ducky all over the sim, but I was lagging terribly at the time.

    Anyway, folks, I'll be posting more pictures from Burning Life and other parts of SL. Right now, I'm just trying to get my Stratics signature to work. See you soon!

    Hi Niki! Hi Callia! *Hugs* Good to see you. Hello there, Flippers-type guy.

    Well, back to the pictures.

    He's being attacked by marshmallows. Poor guy.



    [​IMG]
    Looks like one of the marshmallows is injured.



    [​IMG]
    That's me in the wings. Big sculpture, isn't it?



    [​IMG]
    Marshmallow paratroopers.



    [​IMG]
    Looks like one of the parachuting marshmallows wasn't very lucky.



    [​IMG]
    They're calling in reinforcements.

    I didnt see that one those are are fabulous!
     
  22. Great pics! Thank you!

    There was so much to see, and it was over too fast. :( I wish they had extended Burning Life for a week more. I think it was 20 or more sims to try to see and lag through?

    Yep, it didn't last nearly long enough. I think there were 22 sims.

    Cheshire Cat cars. Too cool!

    Yet another enormous Burning Life creation. I'm the tiny blue dot on the right.

    Looks like this place has seen better days.

    More Burning Life pictures! Whoo-hoo! (Man, I hope someone's still looking at this thread)



    [​IMG]
    Yet again, I'm not sure what this is, but it looks really cool.



    [​IMG]
    It looks like some kind of elaborate machine, but it never seemed to do anything.



    [​IMG]
    This is Spike's Vampire Bar, a replica of a popular hangout at the real Burning Man. Boy, it was hot in there!

    This building's got teeth!
