So reads the introduction to Haveit Neox’s latest installation The Haul, which opened on February 5th, 2017 at MetaLES, curated by Ux Hax and Romy Nayar.

Occupying the region’s sea level – loftier reaches being occupied by Chimkami’s Illogism (which you can read about here), The Haul offers an enigmatic setting which is both familiar and other-worldly.

1920s Berlin machinima reaches 20.000 views

Jo Yardley's Second Life

Last March Pepa Cometa, well known machinima maker, made a wonderful video in my 1920s Berlin project.
It was so popular that it didnt take long to get over  10.000 views and it had even been shown on a very popular German television program!

Recently it has gotten some attention again and was shared on Italian and Russian websites, which made the view counter jump up again and just now it reached 20.000 on Vimeo alone!

That is quite impressive for a video that isn’t about trolling, people having babies or doing the hanky panky.

I’ve written before about how I think we need to make more Music Videos made in Second Life because I think they are an excellent bit of publicity for our virtual world.
And this video has proven that point.

20.000 views, that is a great excuse… for another view!
