Ravenglass and SL Public Land Preserve Featured on "Designing Worlds"

This was quite remarkable! I was invited to show Ravenglass and SL Public Land Preserve on the "Designing Worlds" virtual world TV program.

The hosts are Saffia Widdershins and Elrik Riel and they do a remarkable job of rendering our world and its experiences. They are both professionals in RL.

Two corrections -- and the mistakes are entirely my fault.

First, the "Italianate" village that we land on in Carlisle that I say is "French or Italian or something" is actually SPANISH. Goddamn, Americans are so dumb. I've been to Europe any number of times, I even studied French and I see Spanish every day in New York but somehow I had "Italy" on the brain with those bright villas. You can tell from words on the stores like "La Lubina" (which means "bass" as in the fish bass in Spanish) that this is a SPANISH build. Also there's a sign for Estrella Damm, which is a lager beer, brewed in Barcelona, Spain. Details, Prokofy! I wonder if the builder (Lichi Moonwall) will be pissed off, but you know, he spelled the lager "Damn" on the sign -- maybe an inside joke? And he named the build "Paisaxe Cuideiru Backdrop" -- which is why I thought "French" -- not entirely unreasonable (paysage?) but in fact it's Galician for the phrase "Landscape Care" according to Google Translate -- which BTW is terrible for Russian and many things which is why you need to still hire live translators like me : ).

BTW, if you want to see what this build is SUPPOSED to be besides jammed into Prokofy's rentals, see this fashion blog or this one or this one. See what I mean? So far I have one very happy tenant here, though, check out the vacant ones, the Bellagio villa in the sky in marvelous.

SO then the other mistake I made that no one but one person will notice -- but that matters! -- the person who is a very frequent visitor to this sim who said it is "the most beautiful in SL" is NOT RUSSIAN. He's BELARUSIAN. And I of all people know this and I can't believe I stupidly said "Russian" like an ignoramus would. Well, actually, he's American now but his heritage is BELARUSIAN which is definitely separate from Russia -- and not getting that is like saying "the Ukraine" -- you just can't do that.

Here's a list of the locations you'll see in the show, both in the film part and the stills taken by Wildstar Beaumont, with the main builders and content creators noted -- but do come and visit and see everything first hand!
