I wonder if you know, I wonder if you think about it

In a week, if all goes well, Something Awful hits space. I'm not sure how I feel about this.

The sim of Gawk was one I arrived in on the ZombiePopcorn hunt:

Gawk,Second Life,shopping,fashion,build,art,virtual worlds
(Magnificently detailed ship outside Gawk's main store.)

Gawk,Second Life,shopping,fashion,build,art,virtual worlds
(Debris and old display models outside Gawk's main store.)

Gawk,Second Life,shopping,fashion,build,art,virtual worlds
(Mysterious foundry space next to Gawk. Have your sound on; you'll hear the I-bars moving, and the stamp of the foundry press.)

Gawk,Second Life,shopping,fashion,build,art,virtual worlds
(Again, gorgeous detail work on this train outside the main store.)

Gawk,Second Life,shopping,fashion,build,art,virtual worlds
(I had clearer pictures of the derrick rig outside, but I liked the glimpses through the industrial grill work of the cargo containers.)

Gawk,Second Life,shopping,fashion,build,art,virtual worlds
(Wonderfully craggy, aged, detailed four-prong anchor beside the steps up to Gawk.)

Gawk,Second Life,shopping,fashion,build,art,virtual worlds
(Torso display models in a rusted cage.)

Gawk,Second Life,shopping,fashion,build,art,virtual worlds
(The lighthouse at the back of Gawk's sim.)

Gawk,Second Life,shopping,fashion,build,art,virtual worlds
(And light pouring into the upper floors of Gawk.)

All in all, it's an amazing sim just to wander--small, but realistically shaded, aged, perfectly proportioned...I was deeply impressed.

Another nice sim find. If they had an insane asylum I'd be tempted to compare it to Shutter Island. XD

Nah, FallnAngel's Sanitarium has Shutter Island beat. :D
