Did you know that the Starlust Motel is opening tonight? I came for a bit of a wander before the sim opens at 11 SLT (and slows me down so much I can't move).
It's fabulous. The worst thing about Second Life is the urban sprawl, and Starlust somehow takes this and turns it into art. What's the difference? I think it's purposeful urban sprawl with a sense of humor -- creators who could be doing something else have gotten together to make an intentionally dilapidated space complete with sex beds and peeling wallpaper.
I love decay. I haven't waxed lyrical in a long time, but let's pull out some poetry for this nasty green heap of a build, shall we?
Me only cruel immortality
Consumes; I wither slowly in thine arms.
Here at the quiet limit of the world,
A white-haired shadow roaming like a dream.
- Tennyson, Tithonus
The Starlust is the home of a number of cool shops, including Schadenfreude (Allegory's third!), Violet Voltaire, Thimbles' main store, Pudge, Ki2, and uh, other shops I have yet to poked my nose into.
Did I mention the sex beds? I do love those.
Oh yes, there are freebies from all of the shops for the opening. I'm wearing one of my favorites, a Violet Voltaire cameo that she named "OrAch." The name, isn't it suspicious-sounding? This is because I heckled the poor girl until she made me an orange-colored cameo. Thank you, Vi, it's totally gorgeous! (And I'm sorry for the late nights spamming your IM. Grin.)
You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll probably be able to rent rooms by the hour -- at the Starlust.
