Come With Me Now

Come With Me Now

Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna show you how

Afraid to lose control
And caught up in this world
I’ve wasted time, I’ve wasted breath
I think I’ve thought myself to death

I was born without this fear
Now only this seems clear
I need to move, I need to fight
I need to lose myself tonight

Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna take you down
Whoa, come with me now
I’m gonna show you how

I think with my heart and I move with my head
I open my mouth and it’s something I’ve read
I stood at this door before, I’m told
But a part of me knows that I’m growing too old

Confused what I thought with something I felt
Confuse what I feel with something that’s real
I tried to sell my soul last night
Funny, he wouldn’t even take a bite

Come With Me Now‘ ~KONGOS~

This is just an excerpt of the lyrics, since they were long and there was much repeating. This is an easy song to sing along with, even without having the lyrics in front of you. I’m one of those people that doesn’t need to know the words to sing along with a song. Sure, I’ve butchered the lyrics of many good songs, but back in the day there really was no choice! You sang what you thought you heard, whether it made sense or not. If I have no clue, I then just say gibberish to make it sound like I know what I’m talking about. Hey, I’m the girl that sings along with songs in languages other than English, and I make them sound equally terrible as the ones I know. I come from a family where singing Happy Birthday to someone is something we’d never do with anyone but ourselves, we’re terrible. Most of us out of tune, I’m always lagging a little bit so I finish last and my sister tries to harmonize, but since no one’s in tune there’s no one to harmonize with. I think I’m a great singer in the shower, but my shower’s like outer space…..it’s in there that no one can hear me scream!

You know I’m all about love, well…..I guess not ALL about it! I don’t love a lot of things in this world, but the general message I try to convey is LOVE! So, the new release from !NFINITY is perfect for me! The ‘Love Necklace, exclusive to The Dollhouse which comes in glad and silver and it’s unrigged and scripted for easy resizing. The Dollhouse runs until 8 SM SLT May 20. I’m including the ad for it so you can get a closer look at it! (click on the picture to blow it up real good!)

Ha, I’ve finally done it! I’m wearing a man-bun! This is ‘B78’ from DURA Hair and I think it looks pretty darn cute! I mean, buns were for girls first, right?

The ‘Basic Tank’, from Tres Blah, is just what it’s called! Which is perfect since Ilove basic styles that can be worn with anything, and since it’s almost summer in some places it’s tank top time!

The simple ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink. I wear the HUD for it all the time since it’s become one that I feel naked without!

The ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone, with freckles, is from The Skinnery, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the four eye shadows from the ‘Sexy Smokey Shadow’ set from MILA.

I’m using a pose from the ‘Melaina’ set of poses from entangled poses.

I’m hanging out at my favourite place here, Isle of May.

‘Why fit in when you were meant to stand out?’

~Dr. Seuss~

I’ve never fit in, it’s a fact that I spent many years trying to prove wrong. This fact was the most difficult to deal with when I was young, I just kept trying to fit in, but was constantly alone in my own space. And the sad part about that is, I always thought it was something I had to fix, there was something wrong with me that made me less worthy of being alive in this world. I think society has embraced individuality more now than when I was young, but with bullying such a huge issue, I know that it’s still almost impossible to feel like you belong. It’s not the people that talk about it being OK to be different that do the bullying, it’s everyone living in the round hole that expect us square pegs to fit in. I’ve come to embrace the fact that I don’t fit in, I mean, do I really want to fit in with the people that I don’t even like? No……I choose my friends on the basis of who they are, I accept their differences and want them to feel completely themselves with me. Life’s too short to worry about fitting in and being someone you’re not, be free and be who you want to be, and smile if people look at you funny…….because they just don’t get it! 🙂

I’m wearing the newest release from Tres Blah here. It’s the ‘All Tied Up Blouse’ available now at ~uber~. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass & Physique), and the Belleza(Isis & Freya) mesh bodies and comes in 15 colours.

One of my favourite hair is ‘G1224’ from tram.

The ‘Lila Jeans’ are a fairly new release from Blueberry. I’m rockin’ that butt that Blueberry’s known for. 😀

I want to mention that the ‘Raine’ skin from Avada has been tweaked and I’m super excited about the changes. It’s available now at The Makeover Room, so stop in and have a look. I’ll be doing a close up of my face in the next post to show you how beautiful I am! 😛 I’m wearing the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The ‘Model 823’ pose is from Manifeste and available at the Pose Fair! I absolutely adore the Pose Fair!

I’m at one of my favourite places for this shot, Tralala’s Diner.

Enigma

Smell your skin
Feel your breath
You on my side
I couldn’t resist
I hope I’ll understand some day
What’s the meaning of this crazy game
It is real and pure
T.N.T. for the brain
If there’s no pain
Rules are still the same
I’m with you, just lead me
I’m ready to play
T.N.T. for the brain
Don’t be scared and have no fear
I will show you what it means
If there’s no pain
Rules are still the same
I’m with you, just lead me
I’m ready to play
T.N.T. for the brain
What you feel is insane
It is love and not a game
T.N.T. for the brain

T.N.T. For The Brain‘ ~Enigma~

Today I’m all about summer casual with the ‘Addy Shorts’ from LEGAL INSANITY and available at the current round of Cosmopolitan. They come in 5 colours and are fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass), and Belleza(Freya & Isis) mesh bodies. These cutoff(that’s what we always called them, lol) shorts are a snug fit with a nice round pinchable butt and the low rise waistline accents those curves. This round of Cosmopolitan runs until April 7.

The ‘Akira Tank’ is a new release from PSEUDO and available at the current round of ~uber~.

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin from Avada, and I was so surprised to find out it’s been tweaked and updated! I’ll be giving you a much closer look at my beautiful face in the coming days. It’s on the ‘Lilo’ bento head form Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This in one of the 4 poses from ‘Singles Poses Pack 4’ from The Owl.

I was at the gorgeous ‘Isle of May‘ sim and ran into a whole bunch of familiar names. Always nice to see familiar flickr names and faces and take the opportunity to meet in-world.

Blogging as Art

Blogging as Art

I have to admit that Second Life has brought me numerous surprises, pleasant and some not so pleasant, but I have to admit that the biggest surprise in the almost 6 years I’ve been a resident here happened a few weeks ago when I opened flickr for one of my regular checks to see what’s going on! I don’t get much flickr mail, so it’s the first thing I go to when I see there’s a message, and what do I find there, you ask? I found a very friendly message from Wintergeist, the owner/curator of Club LA Gallery inviting me to consider exhibiting my work at the gallery. I sat back in my chair and thought this has got to be a mistake, never in my wildest dreams did I even consider what I do art, I’m a blogger! I see sooooo many wonderful pictures from the incredible bloggers of Second Life and I know there is art in blogging, but in other peoples shots……not mine! I thought maybe she was looking for a different TinLiz Winterstorm, but no, it was me she wanted to contact! Well, I answered the flickr mail right away, asking if she’s sure, because I just can’t believe this. The opening of the exhibit is nearing, I’ve been working to get it together and I’ve found choosing the photos the most difficult part, I still have time to make substitutions, and I’m sure I’ll question my choices well past the start of the exhibit, so I hope I pick ones that everyone feels worthy of being there. I do have favourites that are an easy choice for me, but some of the others are my most faved on flickr. If I only went on flickr faves all the photos would be of my butt! 😛 In this shot you get an idea of what you’ll find at Club LA Gallery when the exhibit open. The official opening will be on Saturday, February 3rd, 2018 12-2 PM SLT, dress is casual so feel free to drop in and say Hi. I hope someone shows up, I’ve never worked a room before! 😀

The first thing you’ll notice about this shot is of course, my butt!! Whenever LEGAL INSANITY has a new release I go through my poses to find good butt shot poses because I know when it’s leggings, the focus is the butt! So with the release of the ‘Lana Leggings’ which are available at the January round of District 20. They leggings come in 15 colours and include a straight leg version and one for under boots, which is so handy. They’re Maitreya mesh body exclusive and there’s a belt Add-On HUD that you can purchase separately, so you can customize it and be a ‘Limited Edition’ like me! District 20 runs until February 19.

The ‘Benny Side Rolled Top’ is from Blueberry.

You can just a bit of the back of the ‘Anime 05’ hair from DURA Hair.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This is the K. pose from the ‘Alive Again’ set of poses from Carniola Poses.

And as I’ve mentioned, I’m at the Club LA Gallery for this shot, working at setting up my exhibit.

Another Lonely Night

Another Lonely Night

Alone in the dark, hole in my heart, turn on the radio
And the words fall out, but they got no place to go
Wasted on you, high on the fumes
Know I should let you go
But the world won’t stop
And all I got is your ghost, oh, oh oh

Another day, another lonely night
I would do anything to have you by my side
Another day, another lonely night
Don’t wanna throw away another lonely life

No time to sleep, all that I see, are old memories of you
Yeah I try my best, but there’s no one left for me to lose
Tear in my eye, I drive through the night, as far as I can from you
And I don’t give a f*ck if the sun comes up, yeah
It’s just another

Another day, another lonely night
I would do anything to have you by my side
Another day, another lonely night
Don’t wanna throw away another lonely life

No I don’t give a f*ck if the sun comes up, yeah
It’s just another

Another day, another lonely night
I would do anything to have you by my side
Another day, another lonely night
Don’t wanna throw away another lonely life

Another Lonely Night ~Adam Lambert~

Just a song for you today, I took the liberty of slightly censoring the lyrics with a well placed asterisk or two. But, you know what I mean. 🙂

This is a shot I took this morning on a whim. I’m wearing the ‘Kate Cover-up’ in pink from /erratic/. It comes with two versions, one sheer and this one, I’m shy and don’t like to show too much. 🙂

This hair is one of my favourites from -Mina- Hair. It’s ‘Arwen’ from the blacks pack.

I’ve closed my eyes and added the ‘Closed Eyes Applier’ for the Catwa heads from Izzie’s. It really makes a seamless and well defined eyelid.

As usual, my skin is ‘Raine’ from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m using one of the six poses from the ‘A Bit Shy’ set from .M I L A.

And I’m at home with my bed, which is from the ‘Stockholm Bedroom’ set from ~BAZAR~. The house plants are from {what next}. The Armchair is from the ‘Granny’s Winter Cottage’ gacha set from 8f8. And the ‘Fiddle Leaf Tree, in the corner is from dust bunny.
