The Devil You Know

The Devil You Know

You stepped into a dark ride
With cigarette smoke
Feeling alright
The sky looked like black glitter
Tonight you’ll be a winner

You said “I do” to
The wrong side
F*cked me up
And then you play nice
You’ve got to know
I burned your letter
Worse for the better

You made me fall
I’ll make you crawl

You’ve made your bed
Now lie in it (oh oh)
We’re done, we’re dead
Stop hiding it (oh oh)
One step, two step, three step, four

My heart in the trunk
But your body’s on the floor
Horns on my head
You lost your bet

Cause you are the devil
You know, you know
You know (oh oh)
You know, you know, you know

Coming out of a real thriller
Never thought you was a killer
Thunder brings white light
Kovac’s gonna be alright

We used to be easy
But now you are my enemy
Did you enjoy the wolf bite
Now we say goodbye’

The Devil You Know‘ ~Kovacs~

I’m completely enthralled with Kovacs, her voice is incredible and her songs all have a darkness about them that I find completely intriguing. I usually end up listening to this song everyday, and there are so many mornings I wake up with it stuck in my head, considering the amount of music I listen to throughout the day, I don’t know why it’s this one that I keep hearing. It’s not uncommon for me to wake up with a song in my head, heck…..I’ve even woke up with a song that I’ve never heard playing away in my early morning groggy mind. I’m sure if I could write down the words and tune before I got out of bed and forgot it I could be a great songwriter! Yea…….right…who am I kidding! I’d be about as good at songwriting as I am at singing……..which means terrible. I enjoy singing, but even I can’t stand the sound coming out of my mouth, so I leave it to those that can do it, and I’ll stick to things I can do……..like…..ummmmm……yea……I’m sure I’m skilled at something, other than drinking coffee and napping. Maybe I should do both today, I don’t want to get out of practice! 😀

The Whore Couture Fair is still open and there was a bunch of new and exclusive releases at the mid point of the event. Elle Boutique now has the ‘Audrey Backdrop Necklace’ available and it’s something that’s not seen often in the realm of Second Life accessories. It’s a beautiful necklace that extends down the back which compliments anything backless perfectly. ‘Audrey’ is rigged for the Maitreya, SLink(Physique/Hourglass), and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies and the HUD includes 8 metal and 16 gemstone textures, plus there’s 4 extra textures for the gemstones that are an iridescent combination colours inspired by the 4 seasons. Plus, there’s 5 levels of shine when advanced lighting is enabled. The WCF runs until March 31.

To really accent the necklace I chose the unzipped version of the ‘Nikita Dress’ from Dead Dollz.

The ‘Camilla’ hair is from enVOGUE.

I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is from Corpus.

Pryce: Bloom of Spring Campaign

Pryce: Bloom of Spring Campaign

Close your eyes……and feel the soft spring breeze caress your face, inhale the essence of new life as it starts to grow around you, listen for the sounds of spring like the breeze in the shiny green leaves on the trees or the return of the birds that left last fall for warmer climates. There’s so much more to this world than what you see around you and when experiencing nature in all her glory after a long winter sleep I feel renewed and revitalized from the simplest of things. I believe nature holds the key to finding peace and to learn who you truly are because if we use our body to really feel what’s around us we can free our spirit and learn that we are more than just what we see. So, find a sunny spot where you can take your shoes off and feel the grass under your feet and the smells of spring blossoms sweeten the air….close your eyes and feel the sun…..and just be one with the world…..you might find that nothing is as you think it is, it’s all much simpler and more beautiful than you ever thought.

I’d like to thank Lawrence for inviting me to participate in this campaign, it’s a lovely theme and I look forward to reading the empowering words from the other women. ♥

I Want Your Sex

I Want Your Sex

There’s things that you guess
And a’things a’that you know
There’s boys you can trust
And a’girls that you don’t
There’s little things you hide
And little things that you show
Sometimes you think you’re gonna get it
But you don’t and that’s just the way it goes

I swear I won’t tease you
Won’t tell you no lies
Don’t need no Bible
Just look in my eyes
I’ve a’waited so long baby
Now that we’re friends
Every man’s got his patience
And here’s where mine ends

I want your sex

It’s playin’ on my mind
It’s dancin’ on my soul
It’s taken so much time
So why don’t you just let me go
I’d really like to try
Oh, I’d really love to know
When you tell me you’re gonna regret it
Then I tell you that I love you but you still say no

I swear I won’t tease you
Won’t tell you no lies
Don’t need no Bible
Just look in my eyes
I’ve waited so long baby
Out in the cold
I can’t take much more girl
I’m losing control

I want your sex

It’s natural, it’s chemical (let’s do it)
It’s logical habitual (can we do it?)
It’s sensual but most of all
Sex is something that we should do
Sex is something for me and you

I Want Your Sex‘ ~George Michael~

That’s only partial lyrics……the song went on and on but I cut it short….to spare everyone the agony of having to scroll down too far to get to the details in the picture. I’m sure when this song came out there was much ado about the lyrics, oh how times have changed. This is now tame considering what’s released now, and I think it paints an accurate picture of society. The 80’s had a certain innocence about it compared to now, and there’s no going back, unfortunately. It’s when I see what the world has become I’m glad I’ve lived through the decades I have, I’m not saying it’s all bad now…….but there’s been so much change in the way we live. Some things I want back and other things I’m glad are gone for good, remember when Coke changed it’s recipe and the huge backlash it received? But there wouldn’t be a Coke Classic today without that marketing gaff, before then it was just Coke….plain old Coke. There’s a different Coke for every day of the week, now…….who can keep up! I wonder what the next 50 years will bring to the world……no doubt Keith Richards will still be around to see it!

So, about this picture…..Vrir and I had some quiet time at home and what better way to spend it than in each others arms. The ‘Yours V2’ pose from CKEY Poses is available now at the Dubai Event. It’s intimate and loving with a whole lot of sexy thrown in. The bento hands are really nicely done and the pose is relaxed and natural. The Dubai Event runs until April 10.

If I Be Wrong

If I Be Wrong

What if I’m wrong, what if I’ve lied
What if I’ve dragged you here to my own dark night
And what if I know, what if I see
There is a crack run right down the front of me
What if they’re right, what if we’re wrong
What if I’ve lured you here with a siren song?
But if I be wrong, if I be right
Let me be here with you tonight
Ten thousand cars, ten thousand trains
There are ten thousand roads to run away
But I am not lost, I am not found
I am not Dylan’s wife, not Cohen’s hound
But if I be wrong, if I be right
Let me be here with you tonight
And what if I can’t, what if I can
What if I’m just an ordinary man
If there is a will, there is a way
I will escape for sure, I am David Blane
But if I be wrong, if I be right
Let me be here with you
If I be wrong, if I be right
Let me stay here in your arms tonight
And I have been wrong, I have been right
I have been both these things all in the same night
So if I be wrong, if I be right
Let me here, with you, tonight

If I Be Wrong‘ ~Wolf Larsen~

I can admit when I’m wrong, I have absolutely no problem with that, and I will if it ever happens! 😛 Seriously though……I’m completely comfortable admitting it, we’re all human and it happens. It’s when people think they’re right all the time, even when it’s obvious they’re not. Some people will argue they’re not wrong if you look at something in a different way…..that’s more of an opinion than being right or wrong. It’s when someone argues that the sky isn’t blue and that water isn’t wet that it irks me. In the political climate of today, no matter where you are, there’s huge emphasis on right and wrong and it seems that what we once knew as fact is now up for debate. All this has done is divided people….and you know the age old saying, ‘divide and conquer’…yea….that’s the idea. I’m not saying it’s any one group of people, but in today’s world being against each other seems to be the new norm. It’s a shame…when everyone could be so much better off if we all came together. Just sayin!

The Men Jail Event runs until March 28 so there’s still time to get over there for some quality shopping therapy. CKEY Poses has the ‘Ash Series’ of men’s bento poses exclusive to the the event. I’ve always looked for good emotional poses, and it never matters to me if they’re considered men’s or women’s. The only difference for me is having to adjust a men’s pose because of the different shape, but I was amazed at how close this one came to work perfectly for me. I made one little tweak to the left collar to move that hand a tiny bit and I was good to go! The ‘Ash Series’ set contains 5 poses, all completely unique and relaxed to really set the mood for you photos.

I’m wearing the ‘G0511’ hair from tram and the ‘Alicia Robe’ which was an exclusive from Vanilla Bae.

My look all starts with the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I have no lyrics to share with you today, but I do have a song, for which I’m sharing 2 versions with you. The first version is the one that I clicked on first, being lured in to do so by the thumbnail of the dancers. The dance they perform is positively stunning and I was captivated. The second version is the Official video from Yann Tiersen, the pianist and composer of this incredible piece of music. Whichever one you choose to listen to be ready to close your eyes and relax and concentrate on nothing but the beauty of the music. You won’t be disappointed! Oh..and one more thing…..I have no idea what the title of the song means, so if I’ve offended you I do apologize! 😛

I want to show you the ‘Insight Unisex Tattoo’ from Carol G Tattoo Studio today. It covers a lot of the upper body….front, back, and arms with a design of bold lines and an interesting theme. I wore it myself and it looks great on both men and women, this is in black but there’s also a colour version. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven and it comes with 4 ink tones. It’s available now at the 2019 edition of the Skin Fair which runs until March 25. Make sure to visit both the North and South sims so you don’t miss out on anything!

The ‘Couples 2’ pose is from Domizia Poses. I love it’s intimacy.
