Down To The Bottom

Down to the Bottom

Baby I need light, I need fire
I need to know, that I’m alive
I need love, baby I need love
I need love

Take me down everybody down, take me down
Down to the bottom
Take me down everybody down, take me down
Down to the bottom

Baby I need hale, she calls my name
Out in the desert, I pray for rain
I need love, baby I need love
I need love

Take me down everybody down, take me down
Down to the bottom
Take me down everybody down, take me down
Down to the bottom
Take me down everybody down, take me down
Down to the bottom
Take me down everybody down, take me down
Down to the bottom

Way down
Way down
Way down
Way down

Take me down everybody down, take me down
Down to the bottom
Take me down everybody down, take me down
Down to the bottom
Take me down everybody down, take me down
Down to the bottom
Take me down everybody down, take me down
Down to the bottom

I need love, I need your love
Hey, yeah, yeah
Hey, I, I, I, oh…

Down To The Bottom‘ ~Dorothy~

I love finding new music so now and then I ask someone to share with me what they’re listening to………and it opens up a whole new world for me. I asked a good friend to share with me his favourites and this was one band in a huge and varied list that he shared with me via note card. I kind of expected a diverse range of music from him….so I wasn’t surprised to see a little bit of everything included. It’s all about how music makes me feel and so to be limited to only certain genres or artists is just too limiting. I can appreciate something from just about every style……and even the artists that mix it up and make a style of their own. So if you have any suggestions of music I NEED to hear…pass it on….I’d love to hear it, so many gems are out there just waiting to be discovered.

I’m just sitting here, thinking and smoking……..using one of the five bento poses from the M.11 set from IntoXx. The set is categorized as male but I’m never one to be pigeonholed…….so I’d call the set unisex….easily tweaked to fit a female avatar. This pose needed no editing….I just sat down, picked up a cigarette and got lost in the music.

I’m using a cigarette from [kunst].

Chevy Van

Chevy Van

I gave a girl
A ride in my wagon
She crawled in and took control
She was tired
As her mind was a-draggin’
I said get some sleep and dream of rock and roll

‘Cause like a princess she was laying there
Moonlight dancing off her hair
She woke up and took me by the hand
She’s gonna love me in my Chevy van
And that’s all right with me

Her young face
Was like that of an angel
Her long legs were tanned and brown
Better keep
Your eyes on the road, son
Better slow this vehicle down

‘Cause like a princess she was laying there
Moonlight dancing off her hair
She woke up and took me by the hand
She’s gonna love me in my Chevy van
And that’s all right with me

I put her out
In a town that was so small
You could throw a rock from end to end
A dirt road Main Street
She walked off in bare feet
It’s a shame I won’t be passin’ through again

‘Cause like a princess she was laying there
Moonlight dancing off her hair
She woke up and took me by the hand
We made love in my Chevy van
And that’s all right with me

‘Cause like a princess she was laying there
Moonlight dancing off her hair
She woke up and took me by the hand
We made love in my Chevy van
And that’s all right with me

‘Cause like a princess she was laying there
Moonlight dancing off her hair
She woke up and took me by the hand
We made love in my Chevy van
And that’s all right with me

Chevy Van‘ ~Sammy Johns~

There’s a bunch of versions of this song, but the original will always be the best!

Check out Vrir’s version here!

Present Tense

Present Tense

do you see the way that tree bends?
does it inspire?
leaning out to catch the sun’s rays
a lesson to be applied
are you getting something out of this all encompassing trip?
you can spend your time alone, redigesting past regrets, oh
or you can come to terms and realize
you’re the only one who can’t forgive yourself, oh
makes much more sense to live in the present tense
have you ideas on how this life ends?
checked your hands and studied the lines
have you the belief that the road ahead ascends off into the light?
seems that needlessly it’s getting harder
to find an approach and a way to live
are we getting something out of this all-encompassing trip?
you can spend your time alone redigesting past regrets, oh
or you can come to terms and realize
you’re the only one who cannot forgive yourself, oh
makes much more sense to live in the present tens

Present Tense‘ ~Pearl Jam~

This is a new song by PJ…….and it’s already a classic for me….such a powerful message that everyone should heed. So……what are you waiting for…..have a listen!

There’s a new release at the *Just BECAUSE* main store…..and it’s lingerie! I love everything that Annie creates, but I’m always super excited when it’s lingerie! This is the ‘Karol Lingerie Set’ which includes the Corset and Panties, the stockings, and heels…….sold separately or as a mega pack. The ruffles/strings/bows and metals on the corset and panties are HUD driven and everything comes in 24 colours. The Corset and Panties come in a fatpack or separate colours……..and the stockings and heels each come in a fatpack but are sold at minipack prices…or…..for the best deal of all get the mega pack! As with everything Annie creates, the detailing is beautifully intricate with nothing overlooked and this set is super sexy and oh so feminine.

I’m wearing the ‘Ilara’ necklace, which comes with earrings and is a group gift from Kunglers and the ‘Intrepid’ hair from Stealthic. The pose is from the ‘Maunus’ set from Ana Poses.

Ghost

Ghost

I tried it once before but I didn’t get too far
I felt a lot of pain but it didn’t stop my heart
And all I really wanted was someone to give a little f*ck
But I waited there forever and nobody even looked up

I tried it once before and I think I might’ve messed up
I struggled with the veins and I guess I didn’t bleed enough
But maybe I’m alive ’cause I didn’t really wanna die
But nothing very special ever happens in my life

Take the blade away from me
I am a freak, I am afraid that
All the blood escaping me won’t end the pain
And I’ll be haunting all the lives that cared for me
I died to be the white ghost
Of the man that I was meant to be

I tried it like before and this time I made a deep cut
I thought about my friends and the way I didn’t give enough
And I should’ve told my mother ‘mom, I love you’ like a good son
But this life is overwhelming and I’m ready for the next one

Take the blade away from me
I am a freak, I am afraid that
All the blood escaping me won’t end the pain
And I’ll be haunting all the lives that cared for me
I died to be the white ghost
Of the man that I was meant to be, yeah

I tried it once again and I think I might black out
I should’ve left a letter but I had nothing to write about
My blood is all around me, I get dizzy if I stand up
The cutting part was easy but regretting it is so f*cked

Take the blade away from me
I am a freak, I am afraid that
All the blood escaping me won’t end the pain
And I’ll be haunting all the lives that cared for me
I died to be the white ghost
Of the man that I was meant to be

I tried it once again and I think I went too far
The man that I was meant to be
I cut a little deeper and the pressure stopped my heart
The man that I was meant to be
I could’ve told my mother that I love her, I’m a bad son
This life is overwhelming and I’m ready for the next one

Ghost‘ ~Badflower~

I know this is a really disturbing song on a topic that so many people want to think doesn’t exist, but mental health is something that everyone needs to be aware of, not just your own but of the people close to you. These are very troubling times for the world and now more than ever it’s important to be aware of how you’re feeling emotionally. For myself, with a lifetime of mental health struggles, I’m very aware of how I’m feeling and know when my anxiety becomes unmanageable and I start to not want to face each day it’s time to adjust what’s around me. It usually stems from taking in too much world news………I have to balance on the thin line between being aware of what’s going on and becoming too caught up in it. As an empath, I take on the emotions and energy around me easily and it’s a very slippery slope downhill when I feel the negativity, fear, frustration, and hopelessness that’s so prevalent today. So, on this Sunday morning in May I breathe deep……and make my world a little bit smaller……..the grass is growing and the trees are leafing…….most of the birds have returned from their winter vacations and the sun is shining….it doesn’t get better than this!

I’m using a pose from the free gift from SAPA Poses at The Pose Fair Market. The Pose Fair group is free to join and every store has a free gift out for you.

The ‘Mai Per Caso’ statue is from Cammino e Vivo Capovolto.

Greatest Mistake

Greatest Mistake

Sitting on the edge of another day
Waiting on the sun to rise
All that I can hear are the thoughts that you’re thinking

Making up with all of my enemies
Memories I don’t like
I’m tired of the feeling of you’re heart breaking

You were there for me, helping me get through
All my failures, my glories
I owe them all to you
You’ve been holding on, for the both of us
You have always been strong
When I am never strong enough

My greatest mistake, is that I never let it show
These feelings I feel, but god I hope you know
How much I love you
I’m never gonna let you go
Let you go

You picked me up when I was down
When I was lost you came and found me
You took the pieces of my heart when they had all broken apart

You were there for me, helping me get through
All my failures, my glories
I owe them all to you
You’ve been holding on, for the both of us
You have always been strong
When I am never strong enough

My greatest mistake, is that I never let it show
These feelings I feel, but god I hope you know
How much I love you
I’m never gonna let you go
Let you go

We’ve got to keep on keeping together
Just me and you
We’ve got keep on keeping together
If we’re going to make it through

My greatest mistake, is that I never let it show
These feelings I feel, but god I hope you know
How much I love you
I’m never gonna let you go
Let you go

My greatest mistake, is that I never let it show
These feelings I feel, but god I hope you know
How much I love you
I’m never gonna let you go
Let you go

I’m still super excited about this, I entered to win a fatpack of the ‘Luna Lace Lingerie’ awhile back on the Tetra flickr and was so surprised when Nata Porola from Tetra sent me the complete set! I don’t often enter anything….and then when I do I get this wonderful gift……how exciting. The bralette and panties, plus a gorgeous necklace(sold separately) make up the set and as always the quality is incredible and the colour palette as gorgeous as ever! The ‘Luna’ set is available now at Collabor88.

The ‘G0127’ hair is from tram.

I’m holding the ‘Coffee on the Go’ from hive.
