The Shape of Things to Come

Well it’s late in the hour
And a few more grains of sand will fall
On the colorful flowers
Have grown upon the dust and moss

Now I fear the worst is near
I hold them close and count their years
And pray a ray of light appears
To shine down on us here

Break down in the shape of things to come
But I’m moving on like a soldier
And I say now when all is said and done
It’s not ours to break
The shape of things to come

There’s a crack in the clouds
But only for a moment now
Like an eye looking out, in blue skies
Finds the roads we will go down

I wonder what they hold for us
I hold my family to my breast
I fear the worst and hope the best
Will come to see us blessed

Break down in the shape of things to come
But I’m moving on like a soldier
And I say now when all is said and done
It’s not ours to break
The shape of things to come

The Shape of Things to Come ~Audioslave~

I find it harder and harder to listen to the news, and I’ve always been one who keeps up on current events. But, to keep my anxiety at a manageable level and try to stay positive about life, I’ve had to cut out a lot of the news from around the world. I’m not sticking my head in the sand to avoid it all, but now I get caught up on the current affairs and then make my mind move on to something else. It can be so frustrating, completely immobilizing, and downright scary to hear of what we have become. I don’t know what it will take for things to change, but if this is the shape of things to come, I don’t want to see it.

Sorry to be a downer, I’ll just say that this is a’not enough coffee in the world’ kind of day to get me feeling alive and kicking. But, when I look at the colours of this picture that I took yesterday I feel a brightening of my mind. I just love the tones in this, it’s funny how my emotions can be swayed so easily, I’m just this blob of emotion ready to pick up vibes from something…..anything……*sighs* But, anyway……I’m wearing the ‘Sofia Turtleneck Dress’ from LEGAL INSANITY and it’s a good thing I have curves in all the right places because this really hugs them! ‘Sofia’ is Maitreya exclusive and comes in eight really pretty colours. I’ve opted for the red……so I guess you could say I’m the Lady in Red, if you must. 🙂

This tousled hair is ‘MAYU’ from Argrace.

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. I’ve added one of the 4 options from the ‘Sexy Smokey Eyeshadow’ set from M I L A. My eyes are from the ‘Nissa Eyes’ set from Zombie Suicide.

I was going deep into my poses folder yesterday and came up with this one from the ‘Breathe Easy’ set from Le Poppycock.

I’m at Mother Road for this shot! I love the dry heat of the desert!

You can also catch me on my blog, What a Beautiful Mess!.

Dream On

Every time I look in the mirror
All these lines on my face getting clearer
The past is gone
It went by like dusk to dawn

Isn’t that the way?
Everybody’s got their dues in life to pay

Yeah, I know nobody knows
Where it comes and where it goes
I know it’s everybody’s sin
You got to lose to know how to win

Half my life’s in books’ written pages
Live and learn from fools and from sages
You know it’s true
All the things come back to you

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

Yeah, sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good Lord will take you away

Dream on, dream on, dream on,
Dream yourself a dream come true
Dream on, dream on, dream on,
Dream until your dreams come true

Dream on, dream on, dream on,
Dream on, dream on,
Dream on, dream on, ah

Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me if it’s just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away
Sing with me, sing for the year
Sing for the laughter, sing for the tear
Sing with me just for today
Maybe tomorrow, the good Lord will take you away…

‘Dream On’ written by Steven Tyler performed here by Boyce Avenue.

It’s a musical interlude for you today! I bring you Boyce Avenue with an acoustic version of ‘Dream On’ by Aerosmith. I love when rock songs are done acoustically, it really simplifies the music and puts the focus on the lyrics instead. I love this version from Boyce Avenue, the guitar playing is pure perfection and his dreamy voice takes me away. So, enjoy your day, whichever day it might be where you are. I’m going to get another cup of coffee and spend the next 6 hours watching videos on YouTube!

The January round of Limit8 will be open for business until February 13 and LEGAL INSANITY has the ‘Arla Belted Skirt’ exclusive to the event. The skirt comes in eight colours and can be purchased as a fatpack, which is HUD driven with options to colour the belt and skirt separately. It’s really form fitting with a high waist to show of your curves and the booty is pretty damn fine! It’s fitted exclusively for the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The ‘Neva Top’ is the latest release at the main store of /erratic/ and it’s a perfect pairing with the skirt! It comes in 16 separate colours but the fatpack includes 4 bonus colours, so you know that I had to get the fatpack. It’s really a no brainer when it comes to /erratic/, I know I’ll wear it many times.

The ‘Faith-Hope_Love’ tattoo is from Carol G Tattoo Wear and I love the positive message it sends. I love a chest tattoo, I like to think of it as a test for the guys, they can maybe improve their reading skills while staring where they shouldn’t be staring! It comes with 3 ink tones and is compatible with all the major mesh bodies, including Omega enabled ones, plus the classic avatars.

entangled poses has cleared the main area of the clearance pose sets and now there’s 2 new sets available, both perfect for your posing needs. I’m using one of the 3 poses from the ‘Larisa’ set.

The ‘Shirabe’ hair is from Argrace.

And my whole look starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added a bit of eye make up from the ‘Dark Metals’ eye shadow set from Izzie’s.

I’ve been making Tralala’s Diner my sim of choice, lately. I don’t think I’ll ever run out of neat little areas to take a picture.

Blogging as Art

I have to admit that Second Life has brought me numerous surprises, pleasant and some not so pleasant, but I have to admit that the biggest surprise in the almost 6 years I’ve been a resident here happened a few weeks ago when I opened flickr for one of my regular checks to see what’s going on! I don’t get much flickr mail, so it’s the first thing I go to when I see there’s a message, and what do I find there, you ask? I found a very friendly message from Wintergeist, the owner/curator of Club LA Gallery inviting me to consider exhibiting my work at the gallery. I sat back in my chair and thought this has got to be a mistake, never in my wildest dreams did I even consider what I do art, I’m a blogger! I see sooooo many wonderful pictures from the incredible bloggers of Second Life and I know there is art in blogging, but in other peoples shots……not mine! I thought maybe she was looking for a different TinLiz Winterstorm, but no, it was me she wanted to contact! Well, I answered the flickr mail right away, asking if she’s sure, because I just can’t believe this. The opening of the exhibit is nearing, I’ve been working to get it together and I’ve found choosing the photos the most difficult part, I still have time to make substitutions, and I’m sure I’ll question my choices well past the start of the exhibit, so I hope I pick ones that everyone feels worthy of being there. I do have favourites that are an easy choice for me, but some of the others are my most faved on flickr. If I only went on flickr faves all the photos would be of my butt! 😛 In this shot you get an idea of what you’ll find at Club LA Gallery when the exhibit open. The official opening will be on Saturday, February 3rd, 2018 12-2 PM SLT, dress is casual so feel free to drop in and say Hi. I hope someone shows up, I’ve never worked a room before! 😀

The first thing you’ll notice about this shot is of course, my butt!! Whenever LEGAL INSANITY has a new release I go through my poses to find good butt shot poses because I know when it’s leggings, the focus is the butt! So with the release of the ‘Lana Leggings’ which are available at the January round of District 20. They leggings come in 15 colours and include a straight leg version and one for under boots, which is so handy. They’re Maitreya mesh body exclusive and there’s a belt Add-On HUD that you can purchase separately, so you can customize it and be a ‘Limited Edition’ like me! District 20 runs until February 19.

The ‘Benny Side Rolled Top’ is from Blueberry.

You can just a bit of the back of the ‘Anime 05’ hair from DURA Hair.

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 K. pose from the ‘Alive Again’ set of poses from Carniola Poses.

And as I’ve mentioned, I’m at the Club LA Gallery for this shot, working at setting up my exhibit.

Broken

I wanted you to know I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph, I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

‘Cause I’m broken when I’m open
And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
‘Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away

The worst is over now and we can breathe again
I wanna hold you high, you steal my pain away
There’s so much left to learn, and no one left to fight
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

[2x]
‘Cause I’m broken when I’m open
And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
‘Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away

Broken ~Seether~

It’s a great song Saturday for me today. I love this song…..thought I’d share it.

Today’s post is featuring the ‘Pippa Lace Up Dress’, the newest release for women from LEGAL INSANITY!! It comes in ten colours, and if you splurge on the fatpack the trim, laces, and dress can all be customized via HUD. This is a pretty short mini dress, so I’d advise you girls to remember your panties, but everyone will be so distracted by the lace detailing over your oh-so-sexy décolletage, that no one would ever notice if you don’t!! It’s exclusive to the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya and available now at the current round of Cosmopolitan.

I’m wearing one of my all time favourite hairs, Eva from MINA Hair.

My skin is the lovely ‘Raine’ in ‘miel’ tone from Avada on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I’ve added one of the twelve options in the ‘Satin Eyeshadow’ set from BUZZERI.

This sexy pose is from the ‘Neon Lights’ pose prop set from Le Poppycock. I’m just using the pose here, not the wall prop.

I’m at the super grungy post apocalyptic sim, Tralala’s Diner. There is anything you could ever want there, unless you don’t like utter chaos…then it’s not for you! 😀

Big Butts

Oh, my, God Becky, look at her butt
It is so big, she looks like
One of those rap guys’ girlfriends
But, ya know, who understands those rap guys?
They only talk to her, because,
She looks like a total prostitute, ‘kay?
I mean, her butt, is just so big
I can’t believe it’s just so round, it’s like out there
I mean gross, look
She’s just so, black

I like big butts and I can not lie
You other brothers can’t deny
That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
And a round thing in your face
You get sprung, want to pull up tough
‘Cause you notice that butt was stuffed
Deep in the jeans she’s wearing
I’m hooked and I can’t stop staring
Oh baby, I want to get wit’cha
And take your picture
My homeboys tried to warn me
But with that butt you got makes (me so horny)
Ooh, Rump-o’-smooth-skin
You say you want to get in my Benz?
Well, use me, use me
‘Cause you ain’t that average groupie
I’ve seen her dancin’
To hell with romancin’
She’s sweat, wet,
Got it goin’ like a turbo ‘Vette
I’m tired of magazines
Sayin’ flat butts are the thing
Take the average black man and ask him that
She gotta pack much back
So, fellas (Yeah) Fellas (Yeah)
Has your girlfriend got the butt? (Hell yeah)
Tell ’em to shake it (Shake it) Shake it (Shake it)
Shake that healthy butt
Baby got back (L.A. fits with the Oakland booty)

Baby got back (L.A. fits with the Oakland booty)

I like ’em round, and big
And when I’m throwin’ a gig
I just can’t help myself, I’m actin’ like an animal
Now here’s my scandal
I want to get you home
And ugh, double-up, ugh, ugh
I ain’t talkin’ bout Playboy
‘Cause silicone parts are made for toys
I want ’em real thick and juicy
So find that juicy double
Mix-a-Lot’s in trouble
Beggin’ for a piece of that bubble
So I’m lookin’ at rock videos
Knock-kneed bimbos walkin’ like hoes
You can have them bimbos
I’ll keep my women like Flo Jo
A word to the thick soul sistas, I want to get with ya
I won’t cuss or hit ya
But I gotta be straight when I say I want to fuck
Til the break of dawn
Baby got it goin’ on
A lot of simps won’t like this song
‘Cause them punks like to hit it and quit it
And I’d rather stay and play
‘Cause I’m long, and I’m strong
And I’m down to get the friction on
So, ladies (yeah) Ladies (yeah)
If you want to role in my Mercedes (yeah)
Then turn around, stick it out
Even white boys got to shout
Baby got back

Baby got back
Yeah, baby, when it comes to females
Cosmo ain’t got nothin’
To do with my selection
Thirty six-twenty four- thirty six
Ha ha, only if she’s 5’3

So your girlfriend rolls a Honda, playin’ workout tapes by Fonda
But Fonda ain’t got a motor in the back of her Honda
My anaconda don’t want none
Unless you’ve got buns, hon
You can do side bends or sit-ups
But please don’t lose that butt
Some brothers want to play that hard role
And tell you that the butt ain’t gol’
So they toss it and leave it
And I pull up quick to retrieve it
So Cosmo says you’re fat
Well I ain’t down with that
‘Cause your waist is small and your curves are kickin’
And I’m thinkin’ bout stickin’
To the beanpole dames in the magazines
You ain’t it, Miss Thing
Give me a sista, I can’t resist her
Red beans and rice didn’t miss her
Some knucklehead tried to dis
‘Cause his girls are on my list
He had game but he chose to hit ’em
And I pull up quick to get wit ’em
So ladies, if the butt is round,
And you want a triple X throw down
Dial 1-900-MIXALOT
And kick them nasty thoughts
Baby got back

Baby Got Back

I get a kick out of this song and it’s the first one I thought of when I looked at this picture. I mean, you can’t ignore the fact that these pants have a butt like no other!! This is the ‘MYRA Flared Pants & Top’ from LEGAL INSANITY and available now at Collabor88! I love this little top, the front is cut fairly low to show off a gorgeous décolletage with the sleeves such a great addition, and the pants have wide flared legs cut up to mid thigh for lots of leg showing! Oh, have I mentioned the butt? Yea……it’s a nice round butt! They’re both Maitreya exclusive and come in 8 colours with an option to add a floral lining to both of them and sold separately. You’ll have the guys looking, no matter where you go, when you’ve poured yourself into this outfit……so be prepared!!

This pretty breezy hair is ’94’ from barberyumyum. This is in black!

I’m wearing the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, as usual! On the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

I’m using a pose from -slouch- poses, which is unfortunately no longer available.

I made a visit to Tralala’s Diner! I love the post apocalypse sims! I don’t want to experience it in RL, but it’s really cool in the virtual world.
