Beaten Down

If I gave you the truth, would it keep you alive?
Though I’m closer to wrong
I’m no further from right
And now I’m convinced on the inside that something’s wrong with me
Convinced on the inside, you’re so much more than me, yeah
No there’s nothing you say that can salvage the lie
But I’m trying to keep my intentions disguised
And now I’m deprived of my conscience and something’s got to give
Deprived of my conscience
This all belongs to me, yeah

I’m beaten down again, I belong to them
Beaten down again, I’ve failed you
I’m weaker now my friend, I belong to them
Beaten down again, I’ve failed you

The deception you show is your own parasite
Just a word of advice you can heed if you like
And now I’m convinced on the inside that something’s wrong with me
Convinced on the inside you’re so much more than me, yeah

I’m beaten down again, I belong to them
Beaten down again, I’ve failed you
I’m weaker now my friend, I belong to them
Beaten down again, I’ve failed you

I’m beaten down again, I belong to them
Beaten down again, I’ve failed you
I’m weaker now my friend, I belong to them
Beaten down again, I’ve failed you

Truth‘ ~Seether~

fame femme has released the gorgeous and extremely comfortable ‘Milana’ dress for the February round of N21. The simple lines all lead the eye to the knotted hemline that allows a peak of the thigh. This is the ‘nutmeg’ version, one of the twelve colours available. N21 runs until March 12.

I opted for boots to go with the dress, and the ‘KALISKA’ boots from UTOPIA are perfect! As my sisters said, ‘if you look up supple in the dictionary, these boots would be pictured’. They’re gorgeous!

The hair is ‘Boys & Girls 76’ from DURA Hair.

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

The pose is 67 from .MILA..

I’m at Tralala’s Diner for this shot! I just love it there, so much to see!

Let Her Cry

She sits alone
By a lamp post
Trying to find a thought that’s escaped her mind
She says Dad’s the one
I love the most
But Stipe’s not far behind

She never lets me in
Only tell me where’s she’s been
When she’s had too much to drink
I say that I don’t care
I just run my hands through her dark hair
Then I pray to God you gotta help me fly away and just…

[Chorus:]
Let her cry, if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing, if it eases all her pain
Let her go, let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
Let her be, let her be.

This morning I woke up alone
Found a note standin’ by the phone
Saying maybe, maybe I’ll be back some day
I wanted to look for you
You walked in
I didn’t know just what I should do
So I sat back down and had a beer and felt sorry for myself saying…

[Chorus]
Let her cry, if the tears fall down like rain
Let her sing, if it eases all her pain
Let her go, let her walk right out on me
And if the sun comes up tomorrow
Let her be, let her be.

Let Her Cry ~Hootie and the Blowfish~

A musical interlude today, I know it’s not ‘cool’ to like Hootie and the Blowfish, but I’ve never been one to worry about being cool.

Metamorphoses Tattoo has a new release and the cat lovers of the world will rejoice! The pretty black kitty face is perfectly highlighted with delicate pink roses, which makes it super feminine. It comes with 2 ink tones and is compatible with pretty much any mesh body there is plus classic avatars. You can find it in the Metamorphoses Tattoo main store or on Market Place.

I’ve rarely(meaning never) had occasion to wear the ‘Kinky Latex Dress’ from Kaithleen’s, so I thought it was time! It accents what needs accenting but still leaves a little something to the imagination. It comes in 16 colours with each one having 4 button options and 8 pantie colours, or you can go without the panties if you feel a little more daring.

This is the back of the ‘Anime 05’ hair from DURA Hair.

I’m wearing the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m using pose 27 from M I L A Poses.

Dammit Jim.......I'm a Blogger, Not a.......

………..oh, you’re not saying I’m anything but a blogger, Jim? Good good, because you know I’m not a doctor! Well, the term blogger is a very general term, and what does being a blogger really define someone as? Well, anyone who expresses themselves in some form online is a blogger, in my mind. Whether it’s writing or photographs or anything that you want to show to your readers. It’s all blogging. I can only speak of blogging in terms of Second Life, so my form of blogging is showing off virtual fashion and poses, and sometimes decor or buildings, from some of my favourite designers. It all starts with choosing something to focus on in the photo, usually it’s fashion or a pose, sometimes home decor or buildings. Then there are times that I just want to take a picture that shows a little bit of myself, focusing on lighting and mood. So I put together an outfit and choose a pose, then it’s finding a location to take a picture at. I love finding new sims or new areas of sims I’ve been to, and then to see these places in different lighting is one of the things I’m OCD about. Just one more windlight, always one more, to see if there’s a better one. Needless to say, my picture taking does consume a bit of time with me trying so many! I then work on camera angle, trying to get the best vantage point to make everything look it’s best. At this point I want to add that, like anyone else, not all days go well. Some days the technical part of it isn’t working for me and Second Life is being it’s glitchy self, some days I’m just not feeling it, and this makes every picture different, with some being better than others. It’s just life…..I love it when it all goes easy and I get a good one, but it’s OK if I have to work a bit at it, and redo the shot…again and again and again. Like I did for this one. I had a shot I really liked, but then I noticed something that didn’t sit right with me. And when that happens, I can’t see anything but that…so back to Tralala’s Diner I went , recreated everything like I had it, and took new pics. It’s not the first time it’s happened, won’t be the last…I try to look closely at the image to check for, what I call, flaws. You know….the finger stuck in the hip, the hair through the neck, or the shoes below ground level. Since I don’t use Photoshop, I have to make it as close to flawless as I can in-world, which isn’t always easy. After I’ve got a picture, I then think of what I want to say in the post. Some days I have lots of things to say….and then there’s the days all you get is song lyrics or a poem. But, even though I’m not using my own words to say something, my choice of lyrics or poem are speaking for me. Once I have it all done, then there’s nothing left to do but post it, and it’s links to my various social media accounts, telling all of my faithful, and much appreciated, followers that I have something new for them to peruse!

I’m wearing the ‘Leather Jacket and Dress’ from fame femme and it’s a beaut! I like that word, ‘beaut’! 🙂 Anyway, the jacket comes in 10 colours and the dress is HUD driven with 10 colours to choose from, and it’s fitted for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from Bauhaus Movement and it’s part of the huuuuge ‘Hearts Burst Into Fire’ fatpack available now at The Liaison Collaborative. You can also purchase any of the poses individually.

The ‘Boys & Girls 70’ hair with headband is from DURA Hair.

My skin, although altered with the windlight, is ‘Raine’ in ‘miel’ tone from Avada. I’ve added a bit of shadow from the ‘Satin Shadow Set’ from Buzzeri. And, it all starts with the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

Gaze Long Into the Abyss

I’ve just spent 45 minutes trying to make sense of Friedrich Nietzsche and I can now report that that is not enough time! I was going to write something meaningful and profound, but while doing some research on the ‘staring into the abyss’ quote, I realized that there’s no way I can come close to saying anything that wouldn’t make me look like a complete idiot. I do have an open mind, and am will to try form thoughts about how I interpret things, but this is ‘waaaay out there for me’! It’s not that I don’t get the very basic meaning……but to actually write about it, is a whole other thing. You know the saying, ‘it’s better stay silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt’? Yea…that was meant for me….and I know when to keep quiet!

I’m always drawn to poses of sadness, so the newest set of poses and props from Le Poppycock are perfect for me! The ‘Heartache A & B’ pose sets are all gut wrenching in their emotion and you’ll probably be seeing each and every one of them here, eventually! This one is called ‘Secret Sorrow’ and includes the rose with falling petals. This set is perfect for anyone that feels alone during this time of year. With everyone throwing their love and romance at you, when all you want to do is put on your jammies and watch a good movie while eating a pint of ice cream straight from the container! The ‘Heartache’ sets contain six poses each, with rose props and are available now at The Chapter Four.

I’m wearing the newest release from DURA Hair here. It’s the ‘Boys & Girls 82’ and available now at The Men’s Department.

The ‘Betina Tank Top’ is from Addams.

I made it over to the flash sale at Blueberry last week and grabbed the ‘Kimi Skirt’, among other things.

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

I found the incredible Neverfar sim. Joining the group does give rez rights, but worth every penny.

What Are You Lookin' At?

Hey….you…..yea you……stop staring! Just because I’m wearing a short skirt and may or may not be wearing any panties doesn’t give you the right to stare! I know…I know….I’ve been showing my butt a lot, I understand that, but when my designers create fashions that enhance or emphasize a certain part, I’m obligated to show it, it just so happens that there’s been a few more items than usual that focus on the butt! I just blog what my wonderful designers release!! 😀 Next month it could be more rings or shoes, or maybe even home decor! Yea, it could be a butt-free month for all I know! If, on the other hand, you choose to look away until my blog is free of butt pics, I’ll totally understand, not everyone wants to see someones a** all the time. I’m starting to wonder if I should complain to Catwa or maybe try a different bento head, since no one ever says I have a pretty face……or heaven forbid that I have a good personality!

This outfit’s a little out of my comfort zone, I will admit. But, instead of trying to work around the shortness of the skirt, I thought I’d embrace it, you know the saying….’If ya got it, flaunt it!’. So, I’m flauntin’ it, baby!! This outfit comes in a few parts, so you can go all in or not, depending on your style. The ‘Futura Skirt, Sleeves, Thigh High Plats, and Top’ are from [QE] Designs and exclusive to the The Darkness Chamber Fair, Cyber Edition. They’re all Belleza, SLink, and Maitreya mesh body compatible and include twelve vibrant colours in the HUD. The Darkness Chamber Fair runs until February 10.

Other than that, my hair is ‘Anime 05’ from Dura Hair.

And like always, 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 18 pose from M I L A Poses. It’s in one of the pose stands that have the single poses at the landing site.

I’m using the ‘Illuminate 3’ backdrop from Minimal here. It’s at the current round of The Epiphany.
