Sex and Candy

Sex and Candy

Hangin’ round downtown by myself
And I had so much time
To sit and think about myself

And then there she was
Like double cherry pie
Yeah there she was
Like disco superfly

I smell sex and candy here
Who’s that lounging in my chair
Who’s that casting devious stares
In my direction
Mama this surely is a dream
Mama this surely is a dream
Dig it

Hangin’ ’round downtown by myself
And I’ve had too much caffeine
And I was thinkin’ ’bout myself

And then there she was
In platform double suede
Yeah there she was
Like disco lemonade

I smell sex and candy here
Who’s that lounging in my chair
Who’s that casting devious stares
In my direction
Mama this surely is a dream
Mama this surely is a dream
Dig it
Mama this surely is a dream

I smell sex and candy here
Who’s that lounging in my chair?
And who’s that casting devious stares
In my direction?

Mama this surely is a dream
Dig it
Mama this surely is a dream
Mama this surely is a dream
Mama this must be my dream

Sex and Candy‘ ~Marcy Playground~

Just a picture and a song for you today…..I’m not sure what I’d talk about with this picture, so I’ll just step back and let you look! 😀

This bento pose is ‘Whispering’ by CKEY Poses and it’s exclusive to the Pose Fair:After Dark event that’s going on right now. I know not everyone appreciates the R rated poses but I like trying to capture the moment, even though it’s a little bit out of my comfort zone. But spending time with Vrir is always perfect. ♥♥♥

Clouds Across the Moon

Clouds Across the Moon

“Good evening. This is the intergalactic operator. Can I help you?”
“Yes. I’m trying to reach flight commander P.R. Johnson, on Mars, flight 2-4-7”
“Very well, hold on please (beeping) you’re through!”
“Thank you operator!”

Hi darlin’ ! How are you doing ?
Hey baby, where’re your sleeping ?
Oh I’m sorry, but I’ve been really missing you !

Hi darlin’ ! How’s the weather?
Say baby, is that cold better now ?
Oh I’m sorry, is there someone there with you??

Ooooh…since you went away, there’s nothing goin’ right !
I just can’t sleep alone at night… I’m not ashamed to say
I badly need a friend…or it’s the end

Now, when I look at the cloud’s across the moon
Here in the night I just hope and pray that soon
Oh baby, you’ll hurry home to me

Hi darlin’, the kids say they love you
Hey baby, is everything fine with you?
Please forgive me, but I’m trying not to cry…

Ooooh…I’ve had a million different lovers on the phone
But I just stayed right here at home
I don’t think that I can take it anymore this crazy war

“I’m sorry to interrupt your conversation, but we are
Experiencing violent storm conditions in the asteroid belt at this
Time. We may lose this valuable deep space communication link
Please, be as brief as possible
Thank you.”

Or it’s…or it’s…”Hello?” “Hello operator?”
” Yes, we’ve lost the connection! Could you try again please?”
-“I’m sorry, but I’m afraid we’ve lost contact with Mars 2-4-7
At this time.”

Clouds Across the Moon‘ ~Rah Band~

I was around for the 80’s, albeit not exactly in a place where it was noticed as much as in large cities. The flamboyant fashion and hairstyles weren’t seen as much here as what I was watching on MTV. Looking back I know we all had big hair and shoulder pads, but not like elsewhere. So, having been around during that time I honestly had never heard this song before today when Vrir sent me this link. Oh those 80’s, what a decade it was……..when people talked face to face and enjoyed a concert and maybe held a lighter up instead of holding the phone up to record it. When no one was available 24/7, and life seemed so much calmer. I don’t romanticize the 80’s in any way, it was a decade that I remember well, but maybe not so fondly. Now, if I could turn back time………but I can’t so it’s all just a ‘what if’.

I love this outfit, it’s so…….so…….incredibly different from my usual looks, but one I love just as much. The hat just tops it off perfectly. The ‘syuka’ outfit in ‘liquid black’ is from R2 Fashion, and the ‘general cap’, in black and white, is a group gift at the main store.

I’m using the ‘You Don’t Own Me’ pose from Shadow’s Poses here. The pose comes with a paddle to hold, but I opted for a riding crop that I had in my inventory.

Andlast but not least, I’m using the ‘SciFi Cube’ backdrop from cm MESH. It’s one of 3 group gifts out right now, the group is free to join.

Girl From the North Country

Girl From the North Country

If you’re traveling the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
For she once was a true love of mine

If you go when the snowflakes storm
When the rivers freeze and summer ends
Please see if she has a coat so warm
To keep her from the howlin’ winds

Please see if her hair hangs long
If it rolls and flows all down her breast
Please see for me if her hair’s hanging long
For that’s the way I remember her best

I’m a-wonderin’ if she remembers me at all
Many times I’ve often prayed
In the darkness of my night
In the brightness of my day

So if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

Girl From the North Country‘ ~Bob Dylan feat. Johnny Cash~

I’m not sure if I’m THE girl from the north country, but I am Canadian and I’m female…so that’s close enough for me. I think the girl in the song has a lot more mystery than I ever will. I’m just a straight forward woman, I can’t be anything other than who I am and I’m content with that. Sure, I could be a better person, I’m not perfect……..I swear too much, and that’s not good………but you know…….some things just p*ss me off! Now, the term ‘p*ssed off’ is one of some confusion, depending on where you’re from. In my part of the world it means to be angry or mad……….or……..you can tell someone to ‘p*ss off’, meaning to get lost or leave. When we say we’re ‘p*ssed’, we mean drunk, whereas in the USA that means to be mad. So…..it can lead to a lot of confusion……whether one is drunk, angry, or being told to get out. But I guess no matter what, it’s always better to be p*ssed off than p*ssed on! 😛 That topic of conversation went downhill fast! 😀

So, I worked on this picture 2 different days……..I struggled with angle, mostly…..but after doing a whole bunch of pics of this scene yesterday…..I logged in today and got it in one shot. Go figure….but the good thing is I’m pretty happy with this one. I’m using a pose from the ‘Eloa Series’ from CKEY Poses. The set of 5 poses are all bento with intricate hand poses to add detail and mood to any scene.

The ‘Stacey Jeans’ and ‘Luma Tube Top’ are both from *Just BECAUSE*. They’re fitted for the major mesh bodies and come in tons of colours.

My hair is ‘G0127’ from tram.

And 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’m at the always inspiring Grauland for this shot! I almost took up residence there, I took so long getting a picture. 😀

Summer Girl

Summer Girl

L.A. on my mind, I can’t breathe
You’re there when I close my eyes, so hard to reach
Your smiles turn into crying, it’s the same release
And you always know, and you always know

I’m your summer girl
I’m your summer girl
I’m your summer girl
I’m your summer girl

Du-du, du-du-du-du
Du-du-du-du, du-du-du-du-du
Du-du, du-du-du-du
Du-du-du-du, du-du-du-du-du
Du-du, du-du-du-du
Du-du-du-du, du-du-du-du-du
Du-du, du-du-du-du
Du-du-du-du, du-du-du-du-du

Lightning in your eyes, you can’t speak
Falling from the sky, down to me
I see it in your face, I’m relief
I’m your summer girl

I’m your summer girl
I’m your summer girl
I’m your summer girl
I’m your summer girl
I’m your summer girl
I’m your summer girl

Du-du, du-du-du-du
Du-du-du-du, du-du-du-du-du
Du-du, du-du-du-du
Du-du-du-du, du-du-du-du-du
Du-du, du-du-du-du
Du-du-du-du, du-du-du-du-du
Du-du, du-du-du-du
Du-du-du-du, du-du-du-du-du

Peer around the corner at you
From over my shoulder I need you
I need you to understand
These are the earthquake drills that we ran
Under the freeway overpasses
The tears behind your dark sunglasses
The fears inside your heart as deep as gashes
You walk beside me, not behind me
Feel my unconditional love

Du-du, du-du-du-du
Du-du-du-du, du-du-du-du-du
Du-du, du-du-du-du
Du-du-du-du, du-du-du-du-du
Du-du, du-du-du-du
Du-du-du-du, du-du-du-du-du

And I can see the angels coming down
Like a wave that’s crashing on the ground
I can see the angels coming now
Like a wave that’s crashing on the ground

Summer Girl‘ ~HAIM~

Do I look happy, or what? 😛

Picture Show

Picture Show

A young man from a small town
With a very large imagination
Lay alone in his room with his radio on
Looking for another station
When the static from the mouthpiece
Gave way to the sound below
James Dean went out to Hollywood
And put his picture in a Picture Show.
James Dean went out to Hollywood
And put his picture in a Picture Show.

And It’s Oh Daddy get off of your knees
Mamma why’d you have to go
Your darling Jim is out a limb
I put my picture in a Picture Show
Whoa Ho! Put my picture in a Picture Show

Hamburgers Cheeseburgers
Wilbur and Orville Wright
John Garfield in the afternoon
Montgomery Clift at night
When the static hit the mouthpiece
Gave way to the sound below
James Dean went out to Hollywood
And put his picture in a Picture Show.

A Mocca man in a wigwam sitting on a Reservation.
With a big black hole in the belly of his soul
Waiting on an explanation
While the white man sits on his fat can
And takes pictures of the Navajo
Every time he clicks his Kodak pics
He steals a little bit of soul.
Every time he clicks his Kodak pics
He steals a little bit of soul.

Yie Hi! Put my picture in a Picture Show
Here we go!
A young man from a small town
With a very large imagination…

Picture Show‘ ~John Prine feat. Tom Petty~

I have the CD of John Prine’s that has this song, and it brings back so many memories when I listen to it. I’ve not heard it in a long time, but when I searched John Prine on YouTube I found it. This whole album is great…but this one is my favourite. The album is ‘The Missing Years’, released in 1991, and I listened to it mainly in 1997, having just discovered John Prine. I was on the road, and this song makes me think of long hours behind the wheel in the northern Alberta and BC….it was about this time of year, but it already felt like early fall and the huge pale blue sky made me thankful to be alive. Of course, that was during the few minutes I took to appreciate what surrounded me each day….otherwise I was stressed out and always anxious about everything that could happen. None of it ever did………but that was never the point…….it could, and that’s all I could think of. Now, my days are mostly spent appreciating what I have and where I am in life, with only few moment spent being anxious about what could happen. I’m much happier now.

The ‘Nickie Top’ from *Just BECAUSE* is new and exclusive at the August round of FaMESHed. It’s super cute and so versatile, the long part of the sleeve can be toggled on/off, making it come to just above the elbow and it comes in 26 colours with the string being HUD driven for colour change. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies, including Legacy.

The ‘Ela Shorts’ are from Blueberry.

The ‘H0527’ hair is from tram.

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.

The pose is from Corpus.

And, I’m at the beautiful Summer Edge for the picture.
