Like a Stone

Like a Stone

And on I read until the day was gone;
And I sat in regret of all the things I’ve done;
For all that I’ve blessed, and all that I’ve wronged.
In dreams until my death I will wander on.

In your house I long to be;
Room by room, patiently,
I’ll wait for you there like a stone.
I’ll wait for you there alone, alone.

Like a Stone ~Audioslave~

My music tastes change regularly and I’m always on the lookout for artists that move me. A song has to have good lyrics, nothing else, just good lyrics. It’s not about the perfect 4 octave voice, if the song is well written it doesn’t matter to me about the voice singing it. As proven by my love for Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and to an extent Bruce Springsteen. Bruce really belted out some rough sounds back in his early years. But it’s all about the words, what they convey in emotion is what I’m looking for. There’s nothing more moving than a song sung by someone that feels it, regardless of the voice. As of late, my musical choices have been a lot of early 90’s grunge and some of the newer stuff by those artists. I never tire of Eddie Vedder, whether alone or with Pearl Jam. I listened to Soundgarden back in the grunge years, and although I lost track of Chris Cornell since then, his passing has made me appreciate his talent again. I’ve also been enjoying some Alice in Chains, Mother Love Bone, Temple of the Dog, and Nirvana. So, today it’s grunge, tomorrow it might be classic country or folk. But not current pop music…..never that!

I have a few things to point out to you today, starting with the ‘Bess’ hair from [KoKoLoReS]. The mid length, just-got-out-of-bed look is exactly what any hair lover needs. I’m so not into being perfectly styled and sprayed, so this is the perfect head of hair for me! ‘Bess’ is available at the August round of Hair-O-Logy, which runs until August 30.

The rush of the first few days of the opening of Collabor88 is past, so now you can shop at your leisure all of the guest designers celebrating C88’s 6th Anniversary. Stories&Co. by Flowey is one of the mainstays of the event and the ‘Debbie Bustier’ is this months exclusive. It comes in fifteen colours in vinyl, latex, and metals and is fitted for the Maitreya, SLink, and ‘Freya and Isis’ from Belleza.

I’m wearing one of the nine selections in the ‘Riot Liners’ pack of eye make up from Veechi. It’s a bold eye liner but doesn’t look out of place anywhere. It’s available at the current round of Rewind which runs until September 10. I can’t believe I just wrote ‘September’!

The DWL Classic jeans are from Blueberry.

The ‘Moon Choker, gold’ is from Burial.

As usual, I’m wearing the ‘Luna’ skin in ‘peche’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento mesh head from Catwa, along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya.

My eyes are from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ pack from Zombie Suicide.

There has been a few shake ups at Imitation, but I have no doubt that things will even out and there’ll be exciting things to come. Imitation has been releasing expressive and natural bento poses, some with great props, and I’m sure that will continue. This is from the ‘Isaiah’ set of poses, but is not available at this time. From today until August 18 everything in the store is 50% off, so make sure to stop in and get some deals.

I’m hanging out at the gas pump island at ‘Mother Road‘ at the Ludington sim. ‘Mother Road’ is inspired by the original ‘Mother Road’ sim of days gone by, and with my love for the desert, it’s a place I’ve been frequenting of late.

Happy Fathers Day to All the Dad’s Out There!

Happy Fathers Day to All the Dad's Out There!

I want to dedicate this post to all the great Fathers out there, my own Dad included! I’m very lucky to still have both of my parents with me and I’m thankful each and every day for it! Dad has always been there for me! He’s seen me through the bad times and the worse times. He’s always been my fixer! It’s like he could always fix anything for me, whether it was something physical like a bicycle or some sort of trouble that only listening can help. He may not always understand me, but he always has the best intentions! I do wish he’d learn though, the one thing he always says to me if I start to get mad at something is, ‘Well, don’t get excited!’! I’ve told him, over and over again, that those words have NEVER worked to calm someone down and actually it only makes it worse! But, he continues to say it and I keep falling into the trap of getting more mad! 😀 I guess some things will never change! But, that’s not a bad thing, because we laugh at it after and I call him a B*****d and he calls me a B***h, and all is good again! I love my Dad, I’ll always feel like Daddy’s little girl, no matter how old I am!

I’ll start with the ‘Quinn’ hair from [KoKoLoReS] that I’m wearing here! This is from the Bayalage pack, which has 30 textures to choose from, like all packs from [KoKoLoReS]. I know I’m not blonde very often but I fell in love with this one! ‘Quinn’ is on sale now at the June round of Hair O Logy, which runs until June 30.

The ‘Just Love’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo Wear is the latest group gift and it’s beautiful in it’s simplicity! There’s just not enough love in this world, that’s one thing I know! The group is 100L$ to join, but there’s new group gifts released regularly, so it’s a very good deal!

The ‘Luma’ Tube Top from Just BECAUSE is available at the current round of Collabor88! I couldn’t resist the fatpack, so I’ll be wearing it regularly!

The ‘Malena Denim Shorts, high rise’ from Addams are going to be my go to shorts for the summer! They’re compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza mesh bodies and also come in standard sizes.

The Choker(B) is from C L A Vv. and part of the ‘My Edgy Look’ gacha set available now at Kustom9.

The whole look starts with the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Luna skin in ‘peche’ tone from Sinful Curves Skins. Which is rebranding and will be Avada. I’m wearing the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, too!

The manly pose is from Le Poppycock! I really like male poses, women’s poses never seem to have this pensive look!

I think I’ve got a thing with this little church at The Last Forever! I love this stretch of road and with this windlight it’s kind of eerie!

What’s Your Name?

What's Your Name

I love seeing all the different names in Second Life! I started SL in January of 2012, which unfortunately, was after SL stopped using last names! So, like all the others after that, I’m just ‘resident’! I always type ‘resident’ with a small ‘r’, because I don’t consider it part of my name. I’m TinLiz Winterstorm…..and proud of it! I know TinLiz is an odd name! I’d like to say it was a well thought out name that I had in my mind for a long time. But, that’s not the way it is! When first joining Second Life, when it asked for username, all the ones I had in mind were used, and I didn’t want a number in my name. So, after oodles of tries I finally managed to find a name that is kind of like what I initially wanted, and without a number. After this many years, I finally realized that ‘TinLiz’ is actually a combination of two nicknames I was called when I was a kid. And once I realized that, I started to really like this name. I do prefer ‘Liz” but TinLiz works too! Or even ‘Tin’…I don’t mind that either. Once I put on a last name I liked, I then became who I am in Second Life. Which is pretty much the real me. I don’t have the mental energy to be fake or some kind of pretend person. I’m just me! So you can call me Tin, or you can call me TinLiz, or you can call me Liz…..but please don’t call me ‘resident’!

I’m a little confused with the Fluffy and Fierce Event! Not by what it is….but in how to pick one or the other! So, I’ve picked one of each to show you! Firstly, I have on the Sydney Dress from [QE]! Sidney is fierce and also really pretty! It’s HUD driven with eight colours for the skirt layers and four colours for the top, plus it has three areas to customize. It comes in five standard sizes plus fitted versions for the Maitreya and SLink mesh bodies. While you’re at the F & F Event grab the hints at each booth, then head to the main store to find your free gift!

Also, at the Fluffy and Fierce Event is Pimp My Sh!t with two fluffy and two fierce tattoos exclusive for the event. I’m wearing the Fluffy Tiger tattoo, in medium ink tone, which is perfectly detailed and compatible with the classic avatars, plus Omega and TMP mesh bodies!

Take a gander at these absolutely stunning pumps!! The Krista Stilettos from NX-Nardcotix come in sixteen colours and are compatible with the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza feet. They have beautiful detail, rich colours, and a unique style that stand out from the rest!

These nail appliers rock! There’s sixteen Pussycat Claws nail applier packs to choose from….and in each pack there’s one claw going to opposite direction, which goes on the thumb…a la kitty cat! Hello Dave always has something fun and exciting to paint your SLink or Omega compatible nails with!

The Miss CoCo hair, browns pack is from Vanity Hair and available at the current round of Hair O Logy.

The Mata Hari, high neck necklace from Maxi Gossamer Jewellery is a must have!

And as always I’m wearing the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs, the Lara mesh body from Maitreya , and the high feet and elegant hands from SLink.

The poses are from the Marilyn Series from an lar [poses].

I made a trip to Hazardous for these pictures.

Human Race

Human Race

Knocked me down and I got back up
And i got myself
Back in the race again
Knock me down, and i’ll get back up
And i’ll get myself
Back in the race again

from the song ‘Human Race’ by Red Rider, written by Tom Cochrane

What sad times these are for the human race! The unending hate, violence, and intolerance has made it hard for people to remain positive and optimistic about the future! Where does it end? How bad will it get? Who’s the next target? I’m so lucky to live in a fairly peaceful area, but, I’ll never say it won’t happen here! Anything could happen anywhere! Now is the time to remain vigilant about seeing the good everywhere around us, and being grateful for what we do have…..see the beauty…not the ugly! I don’t mean be oblivious of reality….just don’t be dragged down with it all…..when we live with hate……we’ve become them!

I look like I have a bad attitude in these shots, and that’s what I’m really loving about the mesh head phenomena, that I’m about a year behind in embracing! I’ve adopted the Nelly mesh head from Genesis Labs as the new me and I don’t think I look like everyone else…I think I’m just me! But, back to the bad attitude! I’m really still the peace loving, people pleasing and sensitive woman that I’ve always been, I just like to put on a face that reflects one of the hundreds of emotions that I experience every day! The Rock Attitude Fair 3 runs until June 18 and I’ve donned the entire Gwen outfit from [E]legance! It has lots of parts to make it a complete look and it fits six sizes and the TMP mesh body, with shape provided! The Gwen Heels fit the Slink high feet! There’s lots of options for the entire look and it all adds up to an, “I don’t give a ****!” look! Love it!!

Also, if you zoom in on the necklace, sorry I didn’t add a closer look at it, but, it’s at the Rock Attitude Fair 3 from Indulge Temptation!. The Just Cross Me 3 necklace is HUD driven with three areas to customize with twenty four colour options and also has ten metals options! It can look any way you need it to!!

I’ll get you to zoom in again on flickr(just click on the photo in the blog) and take a look at my nail appliers! They’re from the Body Art ll Hunt and available at !cream spaghetti hair!. The hunt runs until the end of the month and every hunt item is free! The hint for the lovely Denim Print SLink nail applier fatpack is, “I’m relaxing at the corner of the room!”.

The Beetle Tattoo is from Pimp My Sh!t and I love the detail of it! I love how it shows off a bare midriff! Its compatible with the classic avatars, plus the Omega system and the TMP mesh body and the pack contains three ink tones!

The Jin hair is from KoKoLoReS and is on sale right now at the current round of Hair O Logy!

Poses by -slouch- poses, but unfortunately no longer available!

I found a little empty room up on the top floor on a building at Harfax City Mall for these shots!
