Say Something

[Justin Timberlake:]
Ooh
Yeah, alright
Ooh

Everyone knows all about my direction
And in my heart somewhere
I wanna go there, still I don’t go there

Everybody says say something, say something, say something
Let’s say something, say something and say something
I don’t wanna get caught up in the rhythm of it

But I can’t help myself, no, I can’t help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No, I can’t help myself, no, I can’t help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it

[Justin Timberlake (Chris Stapleton):]
Maybe I’m looking for something I can’t have
(Maybe I’m looking for something I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking for something I can’t have

[Chris Stapleton:]
Everyone knows all about my transgressions
Still in my heart somewhere
This melody and harmony
For you and me, tonight
Whoa, I hear them call my name

Everybody says say something, say something, say something
Let’s say something, say something and say something
I don’t wanna get caught up in the rhythm of it

But I can’t help myself, no, I can’t help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No, I can’t help myself, no, I can’t help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it

[Justin Timberlake (Chris Stapleton):]
Maybe I’m looking for something I can’t have
(Maybe I’m looking for something I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking for something I can’t have
(Maybe I’m looking for something I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking for something I can’t have
(Maybe I’m looking for something I can’t have)
Maybe I’m looking for something I can’t have
(Maybe I’m looking for something I can’t have)

[Justin Timberlake & Chris Stapleton:]
Sometimes the greatest way to say something is to say nothing at all
Sometimes the greatest way to say something is to say nothing at all
Sometimes the greatest way to say something is to say nothing

But I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no
Caught up in the middle of it
No I can’t help myself, no I can’t help myself, no, no, no
Caught up in the rhythm of it

Say Something‘ ~Justin Timberlake feat. Chris Stapleton

I just can’t stop listening to this song! I don’t know what it is about it that I find so enthralling, it could be the relentless beat that draws me in, or the haunting voices that go so well together, it could be the merging of genres that this pair have created to such great effect, it doesn’t matter what it is, I’m caught up in the rhythm of it! The link to the song is the official video, but my prefered version is from the Jimmy Kimmel live show.

I must say that this is one of the most romantic, classiest, and downright most gorgeous gowns…..ever! Annie from *Just BECAUSE* has created the ultimate in formal wear with the ‘Payton Gown’ which is available in the inaugural round of FaMESHed Go. You can find out all you need to know at the FaMESHed Go website or visit it’s headquarters. This is a main store event so if nothing else, just head to the *Just BECAUSE* main store and grab it. It’s compatible with the Maitreya, Belleza(Freya/Isis), and SLink(Hourglass/Physique) mesh bodies, it comes in loads of colours, the scarf is HUD driven with lots of colour choices and an on/off toggle, and it hugs a girls curves so perfectly you’ll have everyone staring!

The ‘Miriam’ hair from TRUTH Hair is the perfect updo for this dress, with the whisps flowing down the back.

The pose is from the ‘Candice’ set of poses from Pose Maniacs.

I’m using the default lighting for the Isle of May sim here, which is perfect for this colour of dress, IMO. I didn’t plan that…it just happened!

Insensitive

How do you cool your lips, after a summer’s kiss?
How do you rid the sweat, after the body bliss?
How do you turn your eyes, from the romantic glare?
How do you block the sound of a voice
You’d know anywhere?

Oh, I really should’ve known
By the time you drove me home
By the vagueness in your eyes, your casual goodbyes
By the chill in your embrace
The expression on your face that told me
Maybe you might have some advice to give
On how to be insensitive
Insensitive
Insensitive

How do you numb your skin, after the warmest touch?
How do you slow your blood, after the body rush?
How do you free your soul, after you’ve found a friend?
How do you teach your heart it’s a crime to fall in love again?

Oh, you probably won’t remember me
It’s probably ancient history
I’m one of the chosen few
Who went ahead and fell for you
I’m out of vogue, I’m out of touch
I fell too fast, I feel too much
I thought that you might have some advice to give
On how to be insensitive

Oh, I really should’ve known
By the time you drove me home
By the vagueness in your eyes, your casual goodbyes
By the chill in your embrace
The expression on your face that told me
Maybe you might have some advice to give
On how to be insensitive

I’m so excited to welcome Shadow’s Poses to my little family of featured designers! I’ve been following Lou on flickr for some time and I’m always amazed at her super sultry and sexy looks. I know I won’t be as mysteriously steamy and sensual as Lou herself, but I’m going to put my own spin on her poses and hope I can do them justice! I’m starting out fairly innocent enough……I mean…what’s more innocent than a little pink teddy bear? Have I ever mentioned I had a teddy bear when I was a little kid? I did….it was pink and the fur had all matted from overuse and over washing, I loved that little guy so much! Well, Lou has included this little guy to go with the ‘Babydoll’ pose. Included in the pack is a pose ball, the animation and the teddy bear so you can head to bed with your little teddy bear, too.

I’ve wearing the ‘Galera’ lingerie set from Addams here. It’s all lacy and pretty to make me feel super feminine!

The ‘M103’ hair is from CHEVEUX.

I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the options in the ‘Shoreline’ set of eye shadows from War Paint.

Stay With Me

All I can say
Is that my life is pretty plain
I like watchin’ the puddles gather rain
And all I can do
Is just pour some tea for two
And speak my point of view
But it’s not sane,
It’s not sane

I just want some one to say to me,
“I’ll always be there when you wake.”
You know I’d like to keep my cheeks dry today
So stay with me and I’ll have it made

And I don’t understand why I sleep all day
And I start to complain
That there’s no rain
And all I can do is read a book to stay awake
And it rips my life away,
But it’s a great escape
Escape… escape… escape…

All I can say
Is that my life is pretty plain
You don’t like my point of view
You think that I’m insane
It’s not sane… it’s not sane.

I just want some one to say to me,
“I’ll always be there when you wake.”
You know I’d like to keep my cheeks dry today
So stay with me and I’ll have it made

And I’ll have it made
And I’ll have it made
And I’ll have it made oh no no no
You know I’m really gonna
Really gonna
Have it made
And I’ll have it made
Ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah

No Rain‘ ~Blind Melon~

First off, I want to thank Atomic Cowboy for posing with me here! He’s a long time friend in Second Life and we finally managed to get together for a picture. I hope we can do it again, he’s super easy to work with and patient….although I only needed 8 shots to get one I liked, so the test will be when I’m having an off day and it takes me 3 different attempts, with 20 pictures taken at each one! That could test the patience of a saint! 😀

So, the pose is ‘Touched Soul’ from EMOZIONE.

My hair is ‘G1224’ from tram..

I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery with the ‘Catwa Closed Eyes Appliers’ from Izzie’s, all on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa.

Wild Horses

Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady you know who I am
You know I can’t let you slide through my hands
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn’t drag me away
I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn’t drag me away
I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I don’t have much time
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Let’s do some living after we die
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day
Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day

Wild Horses‘ ~The Rolling Stones, feat. Eddie Vedder~

I’ve never been a fan of The Rolling Stones, they’ve just never appealed to me, but while winding my way through songs on YouTube I came across this version of Wild Horses, and since most of the songs that are picked for me include Eddie Vedder, I’m surprised I hadn’t seen it before now. My love of EV far surpasses my dislike for Mick Jagger et al. so I had to have a look and a listen. I have to admit…..I really like this version. This song is already one that I could like, but having EV singing it makes it a hit in my books! I think he’s performed with just about everyone at some point in time. He’s with Tom Petty for “The Waiting’ and he rocks ‘Highway to Hell’ with Bruce Springsteen. He helps REM with ‘Man on the Moon’ at their HOF induction, and he was with Roger Waters for ‘Comfortably Numb’. He sang ‘Redemption Song’ with Beyoncè, and ‘You Can Close Your Eyes’ with Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks. I’ve watched the video of him with Neil Young performing ‘Rockin’ in the Free World’ and it was rockin’! Yup….EV can sing pretty much anything with anyone and sound great. On another topic, of absolutely no interest to anyone, is the fact that I used to have a couple of horses and one was kinda wild! I’ve thought about getting one or two again, but just haven’t done it, yet. I like horses, but they’ve never been my number one love, cows always came first for me. I think it’s the fact that horses are sneaky! I could just about always predict a cows movements…but a horse was always full of surprises, and when one is on their back….surprises are not welcome!

I did a little bit of inventory diving today and look what I found! The ‘Elias Bracelet’ from !NFINITY is men’s size when you add it, but with the resize script in it I easily got it down to size for me. It includes left and right versions, black or brown strap and it’s HUD driven with 5 metals and 10 gem stone colours. You can find it on Market Place or at the !NFINITY main store.

The ‘G0911’ hair is from tram. Since I’ve been wearing this skin I’ve bought half of the tram store!

The ‘Bella Tank Top’ is from Tres Blah. This is the ‘nude’ version.

You can only see the waistband of the ‘Kimi Skirt’ from Blueberry, but trust me…it’s snug and short. Makes me feel casually sexy!

And this skin that I’m wearing? It’s ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery. I’m wearing the freckles version and it’s on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the 4 eye shadows from ‘Shoreline Set’ from War Paint.

This is pose 83 from MILA.

I’m at one of my favourite sims right now, Isle of May.

Out of the Blue and into the Black

My my, hey hey
Rock and roll is here to stay
It’s better to burn out
Than to fade away
My my, hey hey.

Out of the blue
and into the black
They give you this,
but you pay for that
And once you’re gone,
you can never come back
When you’re out of the blue
and into the black.

The king is gone
but he’s not forgotten
This is the story
of a Johnny Rotten
It’s better to burn out
than it is to rust
The king is gone
but he’s not forgotten.

Hey hey, my my
Rock and roll can never die
There’s more to the picture
Than meets the eye.
Hey hey, my my.

Hey Hey My My‘ ~Neil Young~

Guess what guys, I have a story for you today! OK….so here’s a link and the lyrics to a Neil Young song, one of my favourites, I must say! I saw him in concert a few years back, and I will admit I’d never been a huge fan, but my Mum really wanted to go and there was no way Dad was going, so I volunteered to accompany her. I’d gotten good seats when they came on sale so we were sitting where all of the die-hard Neil Young fans were, and as I looked around I noticed that it was an older crowd. Since Neil Young was in his early 60’s at the time, it was expected. Now let me fill you in on my Mum! She’s had a full head of grey hair for lots of years and as she gets older it’s gone to almost completely white, so although it was an older crowd, very few had the white hair my Mum did. As we were waiting for the concert to start we’d scoped out who was around us and what the crowd was like and I commented to her that including Neil Young himself, she was the oldest person there! She gave me a dirty look and I chuckled, the people around us had overheard the comment and were looking at us and smiling. It’s at this time that a guy up and over a bit from us leans down and taps Mum on the shoulder, we both look around to him and he says, ‘You’re not going to cause any trouble tonight, are you?’! Well, everyone guffawed and laughed and tittered away. Mum said she’d try to control herself, and I swear that everyone in our immediate area had a bonding moment.

So that’s my feel good story for today, since seeing him in concert I have become a big Neil Young fan. You know how much I love lyrics and how music makes me feel…it has nothing to do with having the voice of an angel! If it did the angel that sings like Neil Young must have had an addiction to whiskey and cigars! 😀

So, today, it’s all about the ‘Call of the Wild’ tattoo from Wild Roots! It’s a full body tattoo and I really did a disservice to it by not showing you the back, but take my word for it…it’s a work of art. It comes in colour and black & white, which is what I’m wearing here. It’s compatible with the Maitreya, Belleza, and TMP mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven. It also comes with the tattoo layer for the classic avatars of this virtual word.

One of my favourite lingerie sets is this one! It’s ‘Shirley’ from Big Beautiful Doll. The set also includes a garter plus stockings appliers for a complete look. I like just a simple bra and thong, personally! This is the ‘champagne’ colour!

Since my change of skins I’ve found that I’m now a dark blonde, light brown, or almost red head! And hair from tram is perfect with it. This is ‘H0316’!

The skin is ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone with freckles from The Skinnery.

This pose is ‘penlinio iii’ by Grafica Poses.

I’m kneeling on the ‘Saxton Bed’ by jian.
