Tied Down

Tied Down

These days the lovers trade their places
Dancing all around each other’s chairs
I can see the numbness on their faces
Jealousy fills up their hearts in pairs
So please could I be selfish with your body?
‘Cause I don’t think I could share you with nobody

Oh when I have you
I’m gonna brand you with my lips
And all of the world will know that you’re mine now
We’ll never lose faith
‘Cause we’ll never forget this taste
My love has the power to keep the tide down

Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh ill get you tied down, tied down

Ohh, late at night you’ll hear the screaming echo
But we all pretend we never heard the cries in the daytime
Don’t you worry my touch won’t leave you hollow
I’m never going to let you change your mind

Oh, when I have you
I’m gonna brand you with my lips
And all of the world will know that you’re mine now
We’ll never lose faith
‘Cause we’ll never forget this taste
My love has the power to keep your tied down

Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied, ohh
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down

Don’t be afraid to leave your mark
Give me the scars to remind me
Just how good you are (how good you are)
And if your faith turns into to dark
Pull me closer and know
That it’s enough to keep you tied down

Tied Down‘ ~Jaymes Young~

Take two…….I just deleted a whole paragraph of text while struggling to write something. Some days are so easy…and other days the only words I can put together is,’ hey, how are ya?’. Today is obviously the latter! So I’ll keep it short and simple today……..hey….how are ya? 😀

I want to show you the wonderful artwork of Sandowl from Wild Roots! Her tattoos are always highly detailed and eye catching. This is the ‘Love is Kind’ tattoo and along with the incredible message, it’s perfectly placed to show perfectly to show it to the best effect! The full saying on it is, ‘Love is patient, love is kind’ and it’s words to live by, because there’s just not enough love in this world. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies, Omega, and classic avatars so no one’s left out!

The ‘Widowmaker’ lingerie set is from [Cynful] Clothing & Co. and it’s available at Collabor88 for a few more days, then it’ll be at the mainstore. The set is compatible with the SLink(Hourglass), Belleza(Freya/Isis), and Maitreya mesh bodies and includes sheer and solid versions.

The ‘G1224’ hair from tram is so feminine with lots of wisps.

As always 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.

This pose is from set 91 from Overlow Poses.

Black Velvet

Black Velvet

Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rogers on the Victrola up high
Mama’s dancin’ with baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin’ like molasses in the sky
The boy could sing, knew how to move, everything
Always wanting more, he’d leave you longing for

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Up in Memphis the music’s like a heatwave
White lightning, bound to drive you wild
Mama’s baby’s in the heart of every school girl
“Love me tender” leaves ’em cryin’ in the aisle
The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true
Always wanting more, he’d leave you longing for

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Every word of every song that he sang was for you
In a flash he was gone, it happened so soon, what could
You do?

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please

Black velvet and that little boy’s smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring ya to your knees
Black velvet if you please
If you please, if you please, if you please

Black Velvet‘ ~Alannah Myles~

Isn’t this just about one of the sexiest songs there is? It goes back a few years, well way more than a few, but to me it’s as good today as it was back then. Alanah Myles is Canadian, if anyone is interested in that bit of trivia! Hey….speaking of trivia……..from my point of view as someone who knew life well before the days of having Google at my fingertips 24/7/365, …….one thing that having that level of access to information has taken away is the debate! You know those conversations where I say it was so-and-so in a movie, but you argue that it was that other guy. We then embark on a heated exchange about why I’m right and you’re wrong. All anyone has to do now is plug the name in your smartphone and voilè….instant answer. It completely negates the need for a face to face discussion, that can make a person laugh, get annoyed, or even mad while trying to convince the other of their opinion. It’s too bad, because it was always a great way to learn about someone, practice your debate skills, and it was fun! Nowadays the question is posed……both parties agree they’re not sure about the answer and both then refer to the smartphone for the answer. What fun is that……that’s just wanting instant gratification……..and there’s so much more that can come out of that. Back in the day it would have been really nice to have the answer eventually, but now it’s way too easy. I make a point of not letting anyone get the answer until it’s been discussed completely and we can at least have some face-to-face exchanges. Sure, everyone went around singing the wrong lyrics of their favourite songs all the time, but that just made life interesting…..to this day does anyone know the lyrics of ‘Blinded By the Light’ by Manfred Man…..I’m pretty sure they’re not what they sound like!!

I’m sure all you Halloween fans know it’s counting down to that day, for me it’s not a factor in life. I’ve never been a fan of it, even back when I was a kid and got the pillowcase full of candy. I just never saw the point. Well, here in SL there’s something that I do like about it….and that’s these boots from **UTOPIA@DESIGN**! The ‘HALLOWEEN Boots’ are a great design of spider web on fabulous thigh high boots, and they come with 2 versions. The leather with spider web design comes with or without blood spatter. Since I’d not been involved in a crime scene or some such thing, I chose to go with the no blood option. I’ll save them for a time when I finally lose it and feel that violence is the only option! They’re front and center at the **UTOPIA@DESIGN** main store.

OMG….the ‘Faith Dress’ from TETRA is incredible!! The buttons are threatening to come undone, the decolletage, and the short hemline all make this so sexy! It’s available now at Collabor88.

The ‘G1224’ hair from tram is another one of my favourites.

As always, 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.

This pose is one of 6(plus mirrors) of the ‘Viktoria’ set of poses from Imitation. The set’s available til the end of the month at the Pose Fair.

NEW favourite sim alert!! Black Bayou Lake is perfect for photographs, all dark and spooky!

Ship Of Fools

Ship of Fools

On waves of love my heart is breaking
And stranger still my self control I can’t rely on anymore
New tides surprise – my world it’s changing
Within this frame an ocean swells – behind this smile I know it well

Beneath a lover’s moon I’m waiting
I am the pilot of the storm – adrift in pleasure I may drown
I built this ship – it is my making
And furthermore my self control I can’t rely on anymore
I know why – I know why
Crazy on a ship of fools
Crazy on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around – back to my loving ground

Who claims that no man is an island
While I land up in jeopardy – more distant from you by degrees
I walk this shore in isolation
And at my feet eternity draws ever sweeter plans for me
I know why – I know why
Crazy on a ship of fools
Crazy on a ship of fools
Turn this boat around – back to my loving ground
Oh no, oh no – ship of fools —

Ship Of Fools‘ ~Robert Plant~

I don’t have much to say today, I’m sorry to say. I suppose I could make up a story about why I’m laying on a piano with a skull, but I don’t have it in me today! I suppose I could give you a weather report, but I ask myself, ‘does anyone even give a f***?’! I could say that I saw Robert Plant way back in the day for his ‘Now and Zen’ tour, but again I’d ask that same question. And honestly, I don’t think anyone does….heck……I know I don’t! 😀

The October round of the Pose Fair is open for the entire month and Le Poppycock has the ‘Necromantic’ gacha set exclusive for it. The set contains 14 bento poses, with props including skulls, skeletons, butterflies, and violins. Perfect for October spookiness. I’m using the ‘Possession’ pose with skull and butterfly prop, I have to admit there’s something weird about laying naked on a piano with a skull, but I’ve never been one to shy away from weird! 😀 There’s also a group gift available for Pose Fair group members and like I said, the Pose Fair runs until October 31.

The enchanting ‘H0928’ hair is from tram and available now at Collabor88. There’s 2 versions included, and as always, I got HUD A.

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 laying on the ‘Distressed Grand Piano, dark’ from Nutmeg. And the ‘Sepia Peonies’ are from NOMAD.

Ends Of The Earth

Ends Of The Earth

Oh, there’s a river that winds on forever
I’m gonna see where it leads
Oh, there’s a mountain that no man has mounted
I’m gonna stand on the peak

Out there’s a land that time don’t command
Wanna be the first to arrive
No time for ponderin’ why I’m a-wanderin’
Not while we’re both still alive

To the ends of the earth would you follow me?
There’s a world that was meant for our eyes to see
To the ends of the earth would you follow me?
If you won’t I must say my goodbyes to thee

Oh, there’s an island where all things are silent
I’m gonna whistle a tune
Oh, there’s a desert that size can’t be measured
I’m gonna count all the dunes

Out there’s a world that calls for me, girl
Headin’ out into the unknown
Wayfarin’ strangers and all kinds of danger
Please don’t say I’m going alone

To the ends of the earth would you follow me?
There’s a world that was meant for our eyes to see
To the ends of the earth would you follow me?
If you won’t I must say my goodbyes to thee

I was a-ready to die for you, baby
Doesn’t mean I’m ready to stay
What good is livin’ a life you’ve been given
If all you do is stand in one place

I’m on a river that winds on forever
Follow ’til I get where I’m goin’
Maybe I’m headin’ to die but I’m still gonna try
I guess I’m goin’ alone

Ends Of The Earth‘ ~Lord Huron~

Just a song for you today on this cool(‘cold’ for this time of year) Wednesday.

A new month and a new round of FaMESHed! *Just BECAUSE* has released the ‘Stacey Jeans’ and I love them! They fit perfectly, albeit a little snug, but really show off a good butt(I’ve been told I have a good butt, anyway), they make the legs long, and the waistline is perfectly placed to show off a bit of bare midriff. The jeans include both the version with the lace(seen here) and a plain version. They fit the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), and Belleza(Freya/Isis) mesh bodies and come in 2n colours or the fatpack.

I’m sporting the ‘Knotted Raglan’ shirt from Tres Blah, here. It’s on sale right now for 75L$ for each colour and it’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), and Belleza(Freya/Isis) mesh bodies.

I dropped in at the NEO Japan event to grab the ‘B&G 087’ hair from DURA Hair.

I couldn’t resist the ‘Bubble Tea, Lemon Tropic’ from Pewpew!. The perfect refreshment that has a bento pose so you can take it with you anywhere. It’s available now at ~uber~.

Also available at the NEO Japan event is the ‘Saitama’ set of poses from Ana Poses, of which this is one of the 5.

As always, 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 hanging out at Little Havana, and I’m surprised I’ve not been kicked out for loitering.

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! 😛

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.
