If you see a faded sign at the side of the road that says
“15 miles to the
Love Shack”
Love Shack, yeah, yeah
I’m headin’ down the Atlanta highway
Lookin’ for the love getaway
Headed for the love getaway
I got me a car, it’s as big as a whale
And we’re headin’ on down to the Love Shack
I got me a Chrysler, it seats about 20
So hurry up and bring your jukebox money

The love shack is a little old place where we can get together
Love Shack, baby (a-Love Shack, baby)
Love Shack, baby, Love Shack
Love Shack, baby, Love Shack
Love Shack, baby, Love Shack (Love, baby, that’s where it’s at)
Love Shack, baby, Love Shack (Love, baby, that’s where it’s at)

Sign says (woo) “Stay away, fools”
‘Cause love rules at the Love Shack
Well, it’s set way back in the middle of a field
Just a funky old shack and I gotta get back
Glitter on the mattress
Glitter on the highway
Glitter on the front porch
Glitter on the highway

The Love Shack is a little old place where we can get together
Love Shack, baby (Love Shack, baby)
Love Shack, that’s where it’s at
Love Shack, that’s where it’s at

Huggin’ and a-kissin’
Dancin’ and a-lovin’
Wearin’ next to nothin’
‘Cause it’s hot as an oven
The whole shack shimmies
Yeah, the whole shack shimmies
The whole shack shimmies when everybody’s
Movin’ around and around and around and around
Everybody’s movin’, everybody’s groovin’, baby
Folks linin’ up outside just to get down
Everybody’s movin’, everybody’s groovin’, baby
Funky little shack
Funky little shack

Hop in my Chrysler, it’s as big as a whale and it’s about to set sail
I got me a car, like, it seats about 20
So come on and bring your jukebox money

The Love Shack is a little old place where we can get together
Love Shack, baby (a-Love Shack, baby)
Love Shack, baby, Love Shack
Love Shack, baby, Love Shack
Love Shack, baby, Love Shack (Love, baby, that’s where it’s at, yeah)
Love Shack, baby, Love Shack (Love, baby, that’s where it’s at)

Bang, bang, bang, on the door, baby
Knock a little louder, baby
Bang, bang, bang, on the door, baby
I can’t hear you
Bang, bang, bang, on the door, baby
Knock a little louder, sugar
Bang, bang, bang, on the door, baby
I can’t hear you
Bang, bang, bang, on the door, baby (Knock a little louder)
Bang, bang, bang, on the door, baby
Bang, bang (On the door, baby)
Bang, bang (On the door)
Bang, bang (On the door, baby)
Bang, bang
Your what?
Tin roof, rusted

Love Shack, baby, Love Shack
Love Shack, baby, Love Shack (Love, baby, that’s where it’s at, yeah)
Love Shack, baby, Love Shack (Love, baby, that’s where it’s at)
Love, baby, Love Shack
Huggin’ and a-kissin’,
Dancin’ and a-lovin’
At the Love Shack

Love Shack‘ ~B-52’s~

So why is this post titled something not relating to the song or the picture? Well, I’ll tell you…….the picture is sad…..but I’m not sad! So I thought I’d try to negate the sadness of the photo with a song that’s happy and makes you want to sing along. And maybe even find a Love Shack somewhere! I’m pretty sure I found one in the middle of nowhere in North Carolina once! It was a little Mom and Pop place with really bad tequila that I insisted on drinking way too much of it. Needless to say I got drunk and felt terrible the next day but I’m not going to say any more about that. That’s not why I’m here…..I’m here to talk about something much more fun and so much easier on the body! Yea….you know what it is…..I’m here to talk about my Second Life and what I do for fun! Well, I’ll leave that for another day and maybe just get on with the deets!

First of all, the pose! Lou of Shadow’s Poses has been busy creating a new release and here it is. It’s ‘Devil Inside’ which includes the pose, a pose ball, and the teddy bear prop. Ok, while I was looking at the picture that Lou included in the package, I was first struck by her use of the pose. She has a look and presence that exudes sexiness that I can’t even come close to matching, so I thought long and hard about how I can incorporate this into my personal style. You know me, my go-to emotion is pretty much always sad so what does a girl do when hugging a teddy bear? I think the last time I hugged one I was crying, so I figured this would be a good time for some soul wrenching sobbing to take place. I’ve had the tears from Catwa since forever and thought I’d give them a try, just to make it a little more difficult on an already difficult day for me in SL with it’s glitchiness. The tears are showing a bit, but I’m far from being able to use them effectively. This just looks like I over did it on the eye drops when I came down with a bad case of ‘dry eye’! Anyway, I digress…..so I took Lou’s super sultry pose and made it sad, I think if there’s a woman on earth who could make crying sexy, it would be Lou!

The ‘G0718’ hair is from tram.

I’m wearing the ‘Acadia Dress’ in burgundy’ from Tres Blah here.

The ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone is from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m in the lovely little atelier, which is at the top of the stairs and to the right in the house at Isle of May!

  1. That’s song guaranteed to get folks dancing and the video is fab 🙂 Especially when Missie walks down the line shaking her accoutrements like there’s no tomorrow *laughs*
