Desperado

Desperado

Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses?
You been out ridin’ fences for so long now
Oh, you’re a hard one
I know that you got your reasons
These things that are pleasin’ you
Can hurt you somehow

Don’t you draw the queen of diamonds, boy
She’ll beat you if she’s able
You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet

Now it seems to me, some fine things
Have been laid upon your table
But you only want the ones that you can’t get

Desperado, oh, you ain’t gettin’ no younger
Your pain and your hunger, they’re drivin’ you home
And freedom, oh freedom well, that’s just some people talkin’
Your prison is walking through this world all alone

Don’t your feet get cold in the winter time?
The sky won’t snow and the sun won’t shine
It’s hard to tell the night time from the day
You’re losin’ all your highs and lows
Ain’t it funny how the feeling goes away?

Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses?
Come down from your fences, open the gate
It may be rainin’, but there’s a rainbow above you
You better let somebody love you (let somebody love you)
You better let somebody love you before it’s too late

Desperado‘ ~The Eagles~

So, I don’t have a story to go along with this song, other than to say, I like it! I don’t have a story to go along with this picture either, so I guess the song and the picture do have something in common! This is blog post #997, and I’m drawing a blank on something to say. I’ve been here before, I’ve admitted to everyone that I have nothing to say and then carry on with the blog post, but today it just doesn’t feel right to do that. Since I started this blog, 4 years ago today, I’ve tried to be entertaining or though provoking, and there are times that I’ve been neither. But one thing I can say is, I’ve always written honestly and openly about myself. I’m not sure if I have anything worth hearing, I’ve never cared about that, but what I have discovered is that through these last 4 years, I’ve learned things about myself that maybe I wouldn’t have if I hadn’t written about it here. I think about my years on this earth and what I’ve experienced and how it’s shaped me and I can see things more clearly. So, even if no one looks at my pictures or reads my posts, that’s okay……it’s been an incredible 4 years! I still love doing this, each day I log in-world looking forward to working on something blog related and I’m proud of where I’ve come from, I keep striving to be better and I’m still learning. So I look forward to many more years doing this, and if I think I have nothing to say now……..I can’t imagine how blank my mind will be in another 4 years. I started out with one follower on flickr, and I’ve just hit the 4K mark, and I thank each and every one of you, for the faves, comments, and views……just one thing, though…….please…someone….help me out now and then by suggesting a topic for me to talk about……input people…..I need input! πŸ˜›

Ok…….I’m wearing the ‘Jewel Roses’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Studio and this is simply stunning! I’ve never worn many coloured tattoos, but the tones of this one are all my favourites, somewhat muted and full of autumn tones. It’s available now at the current round of Cosmopolitan, which has another week to go. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven and it comes in 4 ink tones, this is 75%.

The ‘H0906’ hair is from tram and available right now at the Hair Fair 2018. The crowds should have eased by now to make it easier to grab those styles you need, and I have to admit that tram was one of my first stops when I got there. For more info including slurls, you can check out this link.

You can just see a bit of the ‘Hera’ dress from *Just BECAUSE*, it’s a little mini dress that covers the neccessities, and not much more!

As always, I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at the beautiful Little Havana for this picture.

Mad About You

Mad About You

Feel the vibe, feel the terror, feel the pain
It’s driving me insane
I can’t fake for God’s sake, why am I
Driving in the wrong lane

Trouble is my middle name
But in the end I’m not too bad
Can someone tell me if it’s wrong to be
So mad about you, mad about you, mad

Are you the fishy wine who will give me
A headache in the morning
Or just a dark blue land mine
That’ll explode without a decent warning

Give me all your true hate
And I’ll translate it in our bed
Into never seen passion, never seen passion
That’s why I am
So mad about you, mad about you, mad

Trouble is your middle name
But in the end you’re not too bad
Can someone tell me if it’s wrong to be
So mad about you mad about you
Mad about you mad about you, mad

Give me all your true hate
And I’ll translate it in your bed
Into never seen passion
That is why I am
So mad about you, mad about you
Mad about you, mad about you
Mad about you, mad about you, mad about you

Mad About You‘ ~Hooverphonic~

I love this version of this song, the orchestra just adds so much depth to it and her voice…..perfect! And the video has such an old fashioned feel with the combination of her outfit and being shot in black and white, gives it the prefect ambiance.

This looks like a typical ‘Liz’ shot, I know….and it is….but usually I have one item for you to look at…….this time I’m wearing new stuff from 3 of my featured designers! I’m listing them in no special order….I love them all equally! πŸ˜€

I very rarely wear lipstick……well……when I say ‘rarely’ I actually mean never……it’s been a long time. But, I when I saw the colours in the ‘Moroiter Lipstick Palette’ from Avada I wanted to try them. The set consists of 24 colours and I tried most of them on, then settled for this one. It’s kind of a shock for me to see my lips painted up….so I went low key to start with…..maybe next time I’ll be a little more daring. These are compatible with the Catwa, Lelutka, and LAQ heads, sold separately. It’s exclusive to the VERSUS event that opens on July 1, so mark that on your SL calendars!!

The newest release from !NFINITY is the ‘Vin Necklace’, which is exclusive to the June round of Men Only Monthly. It’s a really intricately detailed cross that comes in silver and gold and the gems are HUD driven with 6 colours for them. It’s resize on touch, so even though it’s sized for men originally, I had no problems getting it down to my size. MOM runs until July 15.

Since I left the house this morning without putting a top on, it’s a good thing I remembered a jacket! πŸ˜› As you can see, I’m wearing the ‘Rose Breast, colour’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo. It’s the perfect accent for a……..ummmmm………yea……..it looks great where it is! lol It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven.

The ‘Miri Denim Jacket’ is from /erratic/. It fits perfectly over pants and comes in lots of colours, with the fatpack having 3 bonus colours.

The ‘G1020’ hair is from tram. I’m not sure if anyone notices, but I adore tram hair, it’s so photogenic and one of the most detailed hair in SL. I always get HUD A, for a great selection of colours.

My skin is ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the 4 options from the ‘Sexy Smokey Eyeshadow’ pack from MILA.

This pose is from the ‘Live Free’ set of poses from Le Poppycock.

I’m at Mother Road for this picture, I love this car! Although I normally favour anything MOPAR……..a Chev will do in a pinch! πŸ˜€

A Little Bit of Happiness, yeah

A Little Bit of Happiness, yeah

What you gonna do?
What you gonna do with people like that?
What you gonna say
What you gonna say that will make them change their minds

Who you gonna find
Who you gonna find to listen anyway
Where you gonna go,
Where you gonna go to try and get it straight
I once found the recipe, for what to do to cure my needs
I packed some things just what I need
Only bare necessities
Asked Mrs Walsh to feed my cat
Calling Lord Tate to tell him that
I’m going home where my people live
Need a little bit of happiness, yeah
Who’s it gonna be
Who’s it gonna be who’ll tell it like it is
Who you gonna blame
Who you gonna blame for all our differences
Where’s it gonna end
Where’s it gonna end if anywhere at all
Where you gonna go
Where you gonna go if you can’t take it all?

I once found the recipe, for what to do to cure my needs
I packed some things just what I need
Only bare necessities
Asked Mrs Walsh to feed my cat
Calling Lord Tate to tell him that
I’m going home where my people live
Need a little bit of happiness, yeah

Write a little note and apologise
To the next door so they realise
Call up little Max and her sister Jean
Say sorry for inconveniencing
Order a cab, take it to, the bus station up on 42
I’m going home, where my people live
I need a little bit of happiness yeah

Happiness‘ ~Johnathan Jeremiah~

What’s going through her mind? She looks to be in very deep thought, not fully aware of what her surroundings are and the intense stare is somewhat unnerving. Is she thinking of her past, and the hurt and pain that’s been such a large part of it? Or maybe, how she overcame that and has become a person that she can be proud of. She might be thinking about past relationships and what part they play in the woman she is today. Or maybe what’s on her mind is the time she’s spent worried about the past and the future with no regard at all about how to enjoy the today. And how can someones thoughts not go to the unpleasantness of losing someone close, when there’s always something to remind who is lost. There are so many things that could be in her mind, and maybe they’re all there, in some way, but one thing’s for sure……if she was a guy…..he’d be wondering if there’s any leftover pizza! Ah, the most basic difference between men and women……they can share the exact same look, but the thoughts inside are as different as night and day! Gotta love it! πŸ˜€

I’m wearing the ‘Saron’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo and I have to say it’s one of my favourites! It comes in black and pink, each with 4 ink tones and the amazingly complicated lines combined with the gorgeous roses on the front and back make for an eye full. It extends onto the hands and the rose and little line of flowers connect it all perfectly. The line of flowers down the abdomen is also eye catching. It’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies plus Omega. It’s available now at Cosmopolitan Events which runs until June 16.

The cute little top from the ‘Irma Bikini’ is perfect for getting lots of sun! It’s a fairly new release from *Just BECAUSE*. It’s fitted for the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies and comes in tons of colours, the top and bottom are both on/off with toggle and there’s a mini pack of prints that can be purchased separately, or it’s included with the fatpack.

The jeans are the ‘Lila Rolled Cuff Jeans’ from Blueberry.

The ‘H0125’ hair is from tram.

As per usual I’m wearing 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 sitting at the easel near the landing point at Isle of May here, but I’m using a pose from the ‘Bored’ set of poses from K&S Poses.

Don’t You Wanna Stay

Don't You Wanna Stay

I really hate to let this moment go
Touching your skin, and your hair falling slow
When a goodbye kiss, feels like this

Don’t you wanna stay here a little while?
Don’t you wanna hold each other tight?
Don’t you wanna fall asleep with me tonight?

Don’t you wanna stay here a little while?
We can make forever feel this way
Don’t you wanna stay?

Let’s take it slow, I don’t wanna move too fast
I don’t wanna just make love, I wanna make love last
When you’re up this high, it’s a sad goodbye

Don’t you wanna stay here a little while?
Don’t you wanna hold each other tight?
Don’t you wanna fall asleep with me tonight?
Don’t you wanna stay here a little while?
We can make forever feel this way
Don’t you wanna stay?

Oh yeeah

Oh, you feel so perfect, baby
Yeah, you feel so perfect, baby

Don’t you wanna stay here a little while?

Don’t you wanna stay here a little while?
Don’t you wanna hold each other tight?
Don’t you wanna fall asleep with me tonight?
Don’t you wanna stay here a little while?
We can make forever feel this way
Don’t you wanna stay?

Don’t You Wanna Stay‘ ~Jason Aldean feat. Kelly Clarkson~

This picture is all about the ‘Embroided’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Studio! It’s full sleeves right down onto the hand, and right up under the jawline, for complete coverage on the shoulders and onto the chest to create an artistic and sexy dΓ©colletage. ‘Embroided’ is exclusive to the May round of eBento, which runs until the end of the month.

In Restless Dreams I Walked Alone

In Restless Dreams I Walked Alone

Hello, darkness, my old friend.
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping.

And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone.
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a street lamp.
I turned my collar to the cold and damp

When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking.
People hearing without listening.

People writing songs that voices never share.
And no one dare
Disturb the sound of silence.

“Fools,” said I, “You do not know:
Silence, like a cancer, grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you.
Take my arms that I might reach you,”

But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence.

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming.

And the sign said,
“The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls.
And whispered in the sound of silence.”

Sound of Silence‘ ~Disturbed~

I’m sure everyone knows this song, Paul Simon wrote it and him and Garfunkel made it famous, but this isn’t your Grandmother’s version! It’s got a bit of meat to it, the video is haunting and his voice is almost angry. I love it when a well known song is changed so completely….when it’s in a good way, like this one is! πŸ™‚

I hope you’ll understand if I’m a little short on words today! I’ve been gone all day and had way to much exposure to people, for this introvert! I need quiet and alone time, and maybe some chocolate! Everything is better with chocolate. Anyway, I’ll get on with why I’m here. A new round of Cosmopolitan Events is open and Carol G Tattoo has the ‘Buddha Tattoo’ for the women available! The detailing in this is so good, with the intricate circles, the flowers and on the back the likeness of the Buddha! It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies, including anything Omega driven and the Catwa, Lelutka, and Vista bento heads, it comes in red or black and each with 4 ink tones. This is one spectacular tat! Cosmopolitan runs until May 5.

The ‘Daisy Top’ from *Just BECAUSE* is one of my favourite summertime tops! It’s super sexy with the zipper open a little bit to show off some cleavage. It’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies and comes in tons of colours. Or…maybe just go for the fatpack for all kinds of options.

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram.

You can just see a little bit of the ‘DWL Jeans’ from Blueberry.

The skin is ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery. I’ve added one of the 9 options from the ‘Blossom Smoke Shadow’ set of eye shadows from Veechi.

I’m using a pose from the ‘Milan’ set by Ana Poses, which is available now at Shiny Shabby.

I’m in the atelier in the house at Isle of May here.
