Swing Dance at The Seraph Club

Before the silly season is fully upon us.

Two hours of Swing Revival, Jazz and a little Electro-swing, as only Edward Pearse can do.

Seraph City sim surround

For years the edge of the Seraph City sim headed off into water. But being a pushy sod I bugged Pumpkin about it and finally said I'd give it a whirl myself. They're probably a bit primmier than I'd like but it may be that rerendering them in mesh may reduce the land impact further.

Until then we at least have an immersive feel to being inside a city. I think it will help a lot with photography too.

Babbage Travelogue: The Fells

North of Babbage Palisade, this sim was until recently called The North Fells, now simply The Fells.

It is essentially a postcard view hiding the Babbage Engineers' Sandbox high above.

There are highland cows, occasional sheep and wild ferrets to be found in the area. Thankfully the Aether crabs have been exterminated.

Breakfast in Babbage: Literary Edition!

Songs based on or inspired by the written word. From Kate Bush's Wuthering Heights to Leonard Nimoy's Ballad of Bilbo Baggins. More often than not song get based on the movie adaptation of a book, rather than the book itself. This month we take you through some songs where the authors were so inspired they wrote music about it. Rachel Bloom even wanted to do things to Ray Bradbury that would probably have given him a heart attack.

Join Edward Pearse at the Clarendon, now on the new Winterlight Savings Time!

2:00 - 4:00 pm Saturday AFTERNOON, SLT

Grand Re-Opening of the Seraph Club

Seraph City's classiest nightspot is, after some minor renovations (that involved moving the entire building), finally ready to reopen to the public.

Dust off the dinner jacket and buff up the bead work.

Join Edward "the Duke" Pearse for some swing revival and help bring the Seraph Club back to life.

7:00pm - 9:00pm SLT Saturday 10th November.

Babbage Travelogue: Academy of Industry

The Academy of Industry sim is in it's second incarnation. Originally a sim by the same name went in shortly after Wheatstone rezzed but it was short lived. The current sim landed in 2009 and has helped Vic Mornington in his OCD need to rebuild his hotel every 6 weeks or so.

New Babbage Travelogue: Babbage Palisade

Babbage Palisade was the 5th of the New Babbage sims to arrive. Over the years it's been home to a bordello, the original spot for Coco-Java, Stormhaven, and Gatsby Szuster's original house before its burnt remains were replaced by the gasworks.

Palisade Gate and the airship mooring tower and Mr. Collins' balloon.

The Wall's clockwork guards

The weaponry really makes you wonder what enemies are out there
