Just Because

This Just In.......

This just in……..someone was snapping pictures while Liz Winterstorm was on a break from her long day with photographers at the beach last week. It seems she reached the limit of her patience when one of the photographers asked something of her that she wasn’t willing to do. There’s no word at this time of what that might have been, but she stormed off the set and was seen snatching this ice cream cone from a 5 year old child, while in a fit of rage! The Mother of the child chased after her, but she refused to give it back and then proceeded into the water, not looking back. It’s believed that Liz has become hard to manage when working and an unknown source says everyone around her is fed up with her. “She used to be so nice and now no one can say anything to her without her yelling and screaming and threatening to quit!” says an insider. This isn’t the first incident with ice cream that Liz has been involved in, last month she was seen buying a 4 liter pail of her favourite flavour, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and when she saw someone with a camera she yelled epithets at them while running after them and swinging the frozen pail of ice cream like a weapon. Only time will tell how she manages, if or when she reaches the breaking point, everyone just hopes there’s enough ice cream within reach for her to calm down, while her staff calls the doctors.

Ok, none of this is true..you do know that, don’t you? I came by this ice cream cone completely on the up and up and no 5 year old was deprived of the treat. The ‘Ice Cream Party’ gacha set is part of the June round of PocketGACHA from Amitie. The set you’re playing for has 7 single commons, and 2 multi person RARE poses, all with props included. I’m using pose 2 from the set and although the ice cream isn’t my favourite flavour…it’s still damn good! PocketGACHA is a monthly HUD based gacha fair that’s super easy, with no endless TP’ing to get into the sim and only to find mega lag and crashing. Just stay home….try the demos……play all the gacha you can handle…and enjoy! 😀

I’m wearing the ‘Kandy Swimsuit’ from *Just BECAUSE* here, I had promised you’d see a rear view last time I wore it and I didn’t want to disappoint. It’s HUD driven with on/off toggles for both top and bottom plus the top has a toggle to make the ruffle the only part covering your girls. It comes in tons of colours, including the printpack and as always the fatpack has every colour you could want. The ‘Kandy Swimsuit’ is available at the JB main store for the FaMESHedGo event, which is ongoing til the end of the month.

The ‘G1224’ hair is from HUD A from tram.

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 at Cherishville at Mysteria Cove for this shot.

Fire And The Flood

I was only walking through your neighborhood
Saw your light on, honey; in the cold I stood
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are

I been getting used to waking up with you
I been getting used to waking up here
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are

There you are
There you are

You’re the fire and the flood
And I’ll always feel you in my blood
Everything is fine
When your head’s resting next to mine
Next to mine
You’re the fire and the flood

Since we met I feel a lightness in my step
You’re miles away but I still feel you
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are
Late at night when you can’t fall asleep
I’ll be lying right beside you counting sheep
Anywhere I go there you are
Anywhere I go there you are

There you are
There you are

You’re the fire and the flood
And I’ll always feel you in my blood
Everything is fine
When your head’s resting next to mine
Next to mine
You’re the fire and the flood

Now listen here she said
Boy when you know you’ll know
And I know

You’re the fire and the flood
And I’ll always feel you in my blood
Everything is fine
When your head’s resting next to mine
Next to mine
You’re the fire and the flood

The June round of FaMESHed Go is up and going strong, it’s a HUD based shopping event taking you to the main stores of all participating creators. I’m wearing the ‘Kandy Swimsuit’ from *Just BECAUSE* here and it’s just in time for the summertime fun. It’s HUD driven with on/off toggles for both top and bottom and there’s tons of colours, including the printpack. The top has a toggle to make the ruffle the only thing covering the girls, so you can be a little more daring if you wish. This is one time I’m not showing the rear view, but it’s definitely worthy of seeing. You’ll probably get to see it in one of my shameless butt shots in the future.

The ‘H0527’ hair is from tram and available now at Collabor88.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

As 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.

This is pose 1 from the Tatiana’ gacha set from Poses.

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! 😀

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.

It's a Good Life If You Don't Weaken

When the colour of the night
And all the smoke for one life
Gives way to shaky movements,
Improvisational skills,
A forest of whispering speakers
Let’s swear that we will
Get with the times,
In a current health to stay
Let’s get friendship right
Get life day-to-day
In the forget-yer-skates dream
Full of countervailing woes
In diverse-as-ever scenes
Proceeding on a need-to-know
In a face so full of meaning
As to almost make it glow

O’ for a good life, we just might have to weaken

And find somewhere to go
Go somewhere we’re needed
Find somewhere to grow
Grow somewhere were needed.

When the colour of the night

Find somewhere to grow
We grow where we are needed.

It’s a Good Life If You Don’t Weaken‘ ~The Tragically Hip~

A haunting song from ‘The Hip’, with Gord Downie gone it makes it sad to watch this video. His lyrics are a perfect blend of words and phrases that not only say something, but can instill emotion in a person. I was going to pick out a line that speaks to me, but when reading the lyrics over I realized that every line is perfect and to select one would be an injustice to the song, it’s the message in it’s entirety…not just in one line. I think the song and photo are well suited for each other, both thoughtful with a bit of melancholy, but ultimately hopeful. I find the title thought provoking, and I’ve decided that a person isn’t one or the other, there has to be a combination of the two for balance. I’ve always considered myself weak because I couldn’t endure things that happened in life like others may have been able to. But, having made it through rough times I look back and see how strong I really was. Like Bob Marley said, “You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice.”!

I’m wearing the ‘Payton Gown’, sans scarf, from *Just BECAUSE* here. The colours choices are amazing and with the option to wear the scarf or not, it makes it a little more versatile, though both versions are incredible. It’s fitted for the SLink, Maitreya, and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies.

The ‘G1020’ 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 at the gorgeous Isle of May for this photo.

Pieces

Run away, run away if you can’t speak
Turn a page on a world that you don’t need
Wide awake and you’re scared that you won’t come down now

Didn’t I tell you you were gonna break down
Didn’t I warn you, didn’t I warn you
Better take it easy, try to find a way out
Better start believing in yourself

We build it up, we tear it down
We leave our pieces on the ground
We see no end, we don’t know how
We are lost and we’re falling
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have

Now and then there’s a light in the darkness
Feel around till you find where your heart went
There’s a weight in the air but you can’t see why, why

Didn’t I tell you you were gonna break down
Didn’t I want you, everybody wants you
Tell me what you’re needing, give into your bleeding
Never any feeling for yourself

We build it up, we tear it down
We leave our pieces on the ground
We see no end, we don’t know how
We are lost and we’re falling
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have

Didn’t I tell you you were gonna break down
Didn’t I warn you, didn’t I warn you
Better take it easy, try to find a way out
Better start believing in yourself

We build it up, we tear it down
We leave our pieces on the ground
We see no end, we don’t know how
We are lost and we’re falling
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have
Can you hold onto me
Can you hold onto me

Run away, run away if you can’t speak

I’ll start with the ‘Pretty Roses’ tattoo from Carol G. Tattoo. I could tell you how highly detailed this tattoo is or how it goes down onto the hands for a completed look. I could say that it’s compatible with the major mesh bodies and also anything Omega driven. But, you already know all that, and you don’t need me to tell you that any tattoo from CarolG is done with the greatest of care and with an eye for the tiniest detail.

I’m not in any way talented in the way of playing musical instruments, I wish I was….I really do. But, I’m hopeless, and will probably never be any different. But in Second Life I can hold this guitar like a BOSS, and make it look like I’m a brooding artist struggling to shed my angst! IntoXx has released the ‘Guitar Gacha Set’ for the May round of PocketGacha. The set includes male and female poses with guitar props consisting of 6 common, 2 rare and one ULTRA RARE, which is a set of 3 couples poses(including the guitar). This is the ‘Female.2, RARE’.

The ‘Luma Tube Top’ is from *Just BECAUSE*.

The ‘G1204’ hair is from tram.

The ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone is from The Skinnery, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m at the always beautiful Isle of May for this picture.
