I visited the Mississippi Delta Blues sim for a SL live musical performance.
It's an interesting experience to visit a place in SecondLife patterned after a real life place so near to home. The sim is much smaller than the real delta, of course, but for a couple of Canadian blues fans they did a pretty good job of capturing the spirit of the place.
Compare the "crossroads" sign at the Mississippi Delta blues above with with the real one below.
Not a bad likeness, I think. My only tongue-in-cheek complaint was that the cotton fields were too clean. They needed some johnson grass sprouting up here and there.
They even had a version of the Compson house from Faulkner's "The Sound and the Fury". I half expected to see Benjy running from fence post to fence post looking for his sister to come home.
