Second Life Destinations for Halloween Week: The Abandoned, The Most Twisted Place on the Grid - Must Visit



The Abandoned has it all:

A twisted haunted elementary school with children sticking their heads and vanishing into noisy television tests

A hospital that has to be the most sadistic place I have ever seen

A totally sick circus with evil clowns gone wild.

It is a completely sick psychopathic vision of Halloween horror that makes it a must-see destination on the grid. Highly recommended. I felt like vomiting when I left.

75 Years Ago Today: The Most Infamous Radio Broadcast in History Terrorizes the World: Orson Welles Broadcast of War of the Worlds



75 year ago tonight, on the evening of October 23, 1938, 23 year old wunderkind Orson Welles terrorized the world with a special Halloween radio broadcast of H G. Wells War of the Worlds. The broadcast, an adoption of the famous 1898 science fiction novel War of the Worlds by H. G Wells described an invasion of the Earth by Martians who first landed in the town of Grover's Mills New Jersey.

Although the broadcast was announced as a dramatization before, in the middle, and after the broadcast, many people turned in to the station "surfing" the radio dial, and just heard the very realistic terror that was being broadcast. The fear that gripped the United States, and the world, cannot be exaggerated.

If you would like to hear the entire one hour broadcast in its actuality here it is. It really is gripping.

Great Second Life Destinations for Halloween Week: The Nightmare Halloween Walkthrough


The Nightmare Halloween Walkthrough and Scavenger Hunt is a Second Life editor's pick for this week.  It is a long walk, with many destinations included falling tunnels, sewers with strange creatures in them, and radioactive scenes with dead people colored a deep read from too much radiation.  Little touches, like realistic bodies floating in the pool, and baked people laying dead on the floor in the sauna are nice.

The destination says that prizes and free items are available to any souls willing to brave a terrifying journey through darkest terror - although I skipped this part of the tour.

The destination is best experiences at a Midnight light setting, with sound on high, and a Mouselook view. I had to do a regular view to take these images, and the walk through was still enjoyable this way.  I toured the destination as a skelaton wearing a stiped suit which you can see in some of the photos below.

Recommended for a visit. SLurl:
