Editor's Note: I first thought the sim was going away. Well, it is, but it isn't. It's getting a new name and owner, but the old appearance will be going away.

From Trader Whiplash. Fuzzball Ortega has a reputation for being a less than sterling driver. Trader Whiplash shared this picture of him behind the wheel in an out of control moment.
It's a little book shop located on the forum in Colonia Nova. We have free mesh books we're giving away, that include a copy of the book and a synopsis notecard inside. We can't give away the text of real books of course, due to copyright, but these synopsis will give you a good idea of what the book is about, and a nice mesh book display for your home or office.
If you'd enjoy finding new books when we put them out, then please join our group "Books of Distinction". You'll find a group joiner in the bookshop. Eventually we hope to stimulate discussion about our book picks, or maybe your book picks!

For those who haven't done the latest "Gift Grab" from Linden Lab yet this week, (described in their blog post of the event and briefly at the end of our June 22 article of The Birthday), this week's area is a bit on the creepy side. The hint is, "Come and visit for a spooky stay. Once you enter you may never go away!" It is in the Falmouth Hotel in the Falmouth sim in the Bay City area.
The description of the place is, "The Falmouth Hotel will reopen soon after some slight superatural damage is repaired." The scream I heard just after I arrived was a sign that it wasn't. The hotel was one creepy place inside and outside, with some low spooky music playing. Getting to the room where the gift was located, it was a bar with a bloody zombie bartender and some creepy-looking teddy bears. They were old, bloodstained, and had their eyes redone with buttons. One group was drinking what looked like blood in teacups and the other one had a desert bowl of eyeballs. There was some occasional childish giggling, and once in a while the teddys would break out into outright laughter, often while their heads were turned toward someone in the place. Creepy.
The room had been made by Governor and Michael Linden and Squishy, Crazy, and Silent Mole. What they were thinking of, who knows? A certain Bay City resident spotted me on her radar and messaged me, "Say hi to the teddy bears for me." I went ahead and got the Crystal Anniversary gift, and headed home. There, I rezzed the crystal it was packaged it, and got the contents.
This is Week Eight of the Gift Grab, which lasts until late September in which Week Fifteen is for those who got all fourteen of the previous gifts.
Following the demise of their virtual home, InWorldz fans have been either checking out other virtual worlds, waiting patiently for it's owner Beth Reischl to make another place, or both. But several days ago, it was announced on the Metaverse Traveller that some former members of the InWorldz team have been getting together to make their own virtual world: Infiniti.
Talla Adam talked to Lecktor Hannibal, who told him that he and two others on the Infiniti team, Legion Heinrichs (John Arnolde), and April Chung "were part of the original six founders of InWorldz along with Beth Reischl." Lecktor stated he and others left the team due to differences with Reischl. Neither David Daeshler, whom left in late 2016, and Jim Tarber whom was on the team when InWorldz closed and has stated he will not be involved in Reischl's new virtual world, are involved with Infiniti. "It is with great sadness and pain that we've watched InWorldz deteriorate over the years and what motivates us to this project," Lecktor stated, "We are all excited however with the prospect of helping the Opensim/InWorldz community heal from the hurt."
The link to the website Talla gave, http://www.infinitigrid.com, was broken when this article was being written. But there was some information on a Google Plus post.

From the SL Newspaper sometime in late 2009, when pet turtles were popular.
"Oh, I so miss being on the beach. Then again, those humans might toss me around like a frisbee."

Taken at Club Cutlass. Another avatar and clothing combination that got me wondering how could something like this happen in real life.

From CNN Money in February 2010, "Brad Reason, a real life DJ, finds that the virtual world offers more abundant and enjoyable work." This several-year old video is a bit dated, and Doubledown Tandino is a bit mistaken when he says there were few other DJs at the time he started out. Also, most of the DJs I run into don't usually make what he does. Still, it does describe how life for someone who enjoys DJing in Second Life can be, "I don't want to ever leave, because I know this is the future"
