In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company

In Hell I'll Be In Good Company

Dead Love couldn’t go no further,
Proud of and disgusted by her,
Push shove, a little bruised and battered
Oh Lord I ain’t coming home with you.

My life’s a bit more colder,
Dead wife is what I told her
Brass knife sinks into my shoulder
Oh babe don’t know what I’m gonna do.

I see my red head, messed bed, tear shed, queen bee, my squeeze
The stage it smells, tells, hell’s bells, miss-spells, knocks me on my knees.
It didn’t hurt, flirt, blood squirt, stuffed shirt, hang me on a tree
After I count down, three rounds, in hell I’ll be in good company.

Dead Love couldn’t go no further,
Proud of and disgusted by her,
Push shove, a little bruised and battered
Oh Lord I ain’t coming home with you.

My life’s a bit more colder,
Dead wife is what I told her

Oh babe don’t know what I’m gonna do.

I see my red head, messed bed, tear shed, queen bee, my squeeze
The stage it smells, tells, hell’s bells, miss-pells, knocks me on my knees
It didn’t hurt, flirt, blood squirt, stuffed shirt, hang me on a tree.
After I count down, three rounds, in hell I’ll be in good company…

In hell I’ll be in good company.

In Hell I’ll Be In Good Company‘ ~The Dead South~

Before anyone clicks on the link to this video, I want you all to keep an open mind! I can enjoy music from all genres so when a band is cubbyholed with a certain label, I’ll still give it a listen to, because no one genre is all bad. With that said, this song is by a band from my part of the world, the video shows some great scenery from this province and the song is catchy as hell with the band being down to earth and wholly entertaining. I found this video when it had just over 59 million views, and it wasn’t that long ago…….I don’t think I’ve watched it almost 14 million times, but it’s been a lot. So, give them a listen…if it’s not your thing that’s OK…..just carry on to a different video and I won’t hold it against you! 😀

I had a quiet Second Life evening yesterday and while looking around on the Mother Road sim I decided to stop in at the little chapel and sit and think for a bit. It’s the Jessenia Wedding Chapel by Trompe Loeil, but there was no wedding while I was here, although it’s a beautiful building if a wedding is in your future. The sign says Jesus is coming and no….I’m not ready…but I’ll put the coffee on.

Wild Love

Wild Love

Don’t know what to say to you now
Standing right in front of you
Don’t know how to fade in and out
Don’t know how to play it cool
Lose a little guard, let it down
We don’t have to think it through
We’ve got to let go

I wanna give you wild love
The kind that never slows down
I wanna take you high up
Let our hearts be the only sound
I wanna go where the lights burn low and you’re only mine
I wanna give you wild love

Tried to call you to feel you close
From a runway in Tokyo
Let’s leave the atmosphere, disappear
There’s always something left to lose

But I wanna give you wild love
The kind that never slows down
I wanna take you high up
Let our hearts be the only sound
I wanna go where the lights burn low and you’re only mine
I wanna give you wild love
I wanna give you wild love

(Love, love, love)
(Love, love, love)
I wanna give you wild love
(Love, love, love)
I wanna give you wild love
(Love, love, love)

Let’s be reckless, unaffected
Running out until we’re breathless
Let’s be hopeful, don’t get broken
Let’s stay caught up in the moment

I wanna give you wild love
The kind that never slows down
I wanna take you high up
Let our hearts be the only sound
I wanna go where the lights burn low and you’re only mine
I wanna give you wild love
I wanna say I wanna give you wild love
Give you wild love
Wild love

Wild Love‘ ~James Bay~

Another morning, and up early as usual, it’s been hot here lately so I keep my windows open for the night cooling the place off, and it’s so nice sleeping with a light breeze(hopefully) blowing in. The biggest downfall is that I have a flock of chickens that includes 2 roosters, and you know what? They’re noisy……very noisy, once 4 AM rolls around they’re sure everyone should be out of bed. It works well….if I wanted to get up at 4…but most days I don’t. There are days I do get up, getting a head start on a blog post or something productive(?). It really is the best time of the day and an early summer morning in the prairies is wonderful. It’s early in the haying season so the air carries the wonderful smell of freshly cut alfalfa, the meadowlarks are singing in the hay fields to the south, the dew is glistening in rays of the rising sun, and the roosters…….oh those roosters….just never shut up! 😀

I’m enjoying an early morning outside the motel at Mother Road here. I have my steaming mug of coffee, thanks to the ‘Coffee Break’ set of poses with coffee mug props from [KoKoLoReS] and available at the July round of The Pose Fair. The mug is HUD driven with 6 textures and it’s also resizable via the HUD. The poses are bento and fit me really well. Have a great day all!

The ‘H0531’ hair is from tram. You might guess that tram is one of my all time favourite hair makers…….it’s like they’re all made just for me! 😛

The ‘Sabrina Top’ is from /erratic/, one of my favourite summer tops.

You can just see the top of the ‘Lila Jeans’ from Blueberry. Love the fit of these!

The ‘Infinity Necklace’ is from Cae and the hearts are HUD driven for engraving.

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.

Mad About You

Mad About You

Feel the vibe, feel the terror, feel the pain
It’s driving me insane
I can’t fake for God’s sake, why am I
Driving in the wrong lane

Trouble is my middle name
But in the end I’m not too bad
Can someone tell me if it’s wrong to be
So mad about you, mad about you, mad

Are you the fishy wine who will give me
A headache in the morning
Or just a dark blue land mine
That’ll explode without a decent warning

Give me all your true hate
And I’ll translate it in our bed
Into never seen passion, never seen passion
That’s why I am
So mad about you, mad about you, mad

Trouble is your middle name
But in the end you’re not too bad
Can someone tell me if it’s wrong to be
So mad about you mad about you
Mad about you mad about you, mad

Give me all your true hate
And I’ll translate it in your bed
Into never seen passion
That is why I am
So mad about you, mad about you
Mad about you, mad about you
Mad about you, mad about you, mad about you

Mad About You‘ ~Hooverphonic~

I love this version of this song, the orchestra just adds so much depth to it and her voice…..perfect! And the video has such an old fashioned feel with the combination of her outfit and being shot in black and white, gives it the prefect ambiance.

This looks like a typical ‘Liz’ shot, I know….and it is….but usually I have one item for you to look at…….this time I’m wearing new stuff from 3 of my featured designers! I’m listing them in no special order….I love them all equally! 😀

I very rarely wear lipstick……well……when I say ‘rarely’ I actually mean never……it’s been a long time. But, I when I saw the colours in the ‘Moroiter Lipstick Palette’ from Avada I wanted to try them. The set consists of 24 colours and I tried most of them on, then settled for this one. It’s kind of a shock for me to see my lips painted up….so I went low key to start with…..maybe next time I’ll be a little more daring. These are compatible with the Catwa, Lelutka, and LAQ heads, sold separately. It’s exclusive to the VERSUS event that opens on July 1, so mark that on your SL calendars!!

The newest release from !NFINITY is the ‘Vin Necklace’, which is exclusive to the June round of Men Only Monthly. It’s a really intricately detailed cross that comes in silver and gold and the gems are HUD driven with 6 colours for them. It’s resize on touch, so even though it’s sized for men originally, I had no problems getting it down to my size. MOM runs until July 15.

Since I left the house this morning without putting a top on, it’s a good thing I remembered a jacket! 😛 As you can see, I’m wearing the ‘Rose Breast, colour’ tattoo from Carol G Tattoo. It’s the perfect accent for a……..ummmmm………yea……..it looks great where it is! lol It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven.

The ‘Miri Denim Jacket’ is from /erratic/. It fits perfectly over pants and comes in lots of colours, with the fatpack having 3 bonus colours.

The ‘G1020’ hair is from tram. I’m not sure if anyone notices, but I adore tram hair, it’s so photogenic and one of the most detailed hair in SL. I always get HUD A, for a great selection of colours.

My skin is ‘Maddie’ in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery 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’ pack from MILA.

This pose is from the ‘Live Free’ set of poses from Le Poppycock.

I’m at Mother Road for this picture, I love this car! Although I normally favour anything MOPAR……..a Chev will do in a pinch! 😀

Hood Ornament

Hood Ornament

Has anyone noticed the lack of hood ornaments on cars? That’s what used to make a vehicle interesting back in the day! My Dad used to have an early 50’s Ford truck and it had this huge airplane on the hood, I mean it was HUGE! It was one of the most noticeable things on a vehicle and made each one distinguishable from the rest. Nowadays, everything looks alike, at least for me. I have no idea how I’d identify the make of a car if I needed to! Unless I see the back with the name on it I don’t have a clue. I mean, I can tell the difference between the ‘H’ of a Honda versus a Hyundai, but most of the basic sedans are all the same to me. So, if you happen to commit a crime with me watching you’re pretty sure to get away, because when the cops ask what the vehicle looked like I’d have to say it was a sedan…..make or year, you ask? Ummm……….could have been a Ford or Chev…not sure…maybe a Subaru….maybe from somewhere between 1998 and 2015? *shrugs* I’m better with trucks, which were always called ‘half tons’ here, until we adopted the more American term ‘pick up’! Oh….and here it has been known as an ‘end gate’ not a ‘tail gate’, but now I’m splitting hairs! Anyway, just thinking out loud this morning!

I may be one of the more unique hood ornaments in recent memory! I’m not sure what this fashion style would be called, but a friend did say, ‘that’s not gangster!’….and since I’m a farm girl from Canada, I’m about as far removed from ‘gangsta’ as a person can be! I started out with the ‘Dina Denim Mini Skirt'(ephasis on the word ‘mini) and the ‘Gigi Hoodie’ which are 2 of the 3 parts of the ‘Lush’ outfit from [QE] Designs. The outfit includes the ‘Aly Boots’, which I’m not wearing here, and the whole thing is on sale this weekend at the main store. The hood on the hoodie is detachable and I chose not to add it this time, to be a little cooler in this desert environment. 🙂 All parts are HUD driven with lots of colour options and fitted for the 3 major mesh bodies.

I absolutely love the ‘Flowers Galore’ tattoo from Wild Roots!! It comes in colour and black and white versions, with 3 ink tones and is compatible with pretty much any body you may be using. I’m a huge fan of flora and fauna so this was a no-brainer when choosing a tattoo to wear. The detailing is amazing, as is to be expected from Sandowl Violet, and this is one of the more spectacular works! It’s available now at The Skin Fair 2018, which runs until March 25. I’m not sure if it’s slowing down at all but here are the slurls for the north sim and the south sim.

The ‘Jessie’ hair and hat combo are from a collaboration between Besom X Flite. It’s from a gacha and it’s my go-to hair when I want to have a bit of attitude!

As always, my looks 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 a bit of eye shadow from the ‘Tiana Eye make up’ set from Zibska.

This is the ‘Jump Me, male’ pose from Del May!

I’m on top of the car beside the ‘Better call Saul’ billboard at Mother Road.

Someone Say Road Trip?

Someone Say Road Trip?

Destination? check
Map? check, no GPS for me…I’m old skool!
Music? check check
Munchies? checkaroo
Drinks? yup yup
Sunglasses? uh huh
Purse? oh yea!

Looks like I have all I need, if someone wants to join me, you’re more than welcome, but you have to be prepared to sing along to the music and be OK with random stops to grab lots of coffee, take pics and look around. This isn’t going to be a fast trip, but it’s going to be fun! What’s that? A reliable vehicle? Oh…….nooooo…that’s not necessary, we just go and take our chances, knowing that what happens, happens, and it’s all part of the experience! It’s not at all like it used to be, when breaking down meant time on the side of the road until someone came by who would help. No, with cell phones it takes that element right out of it, a rescue is just a phone call away. By the looks of the truck I’m taking on this road trip I better have a fully charged battery and lots of money for repairs, it could be a long trip!

A road trip in real life does require a comfortable outfit, but it’s not as important in Second Life. But, I’m keeping it casual with just jeans and a shirt, and of course great shoes! The ‘Britta Bootie’ from Ingenue is the perfect footwear for this kind of thing. First and most important is it looks good, second…..the full foot coverage makes traversing adverse terrain easy and safe, third……the lower and chunky heel is easier on the foot when not on cruise control, and I don’t think this truck has cruise control! Oh…and fourth…..did I mention it looks good? It’s fitted for the SLink and Maitreya mid foot and comes in 12 pretty colours, this is ‘toffee’. It’s available now at Collabor88.

The ‘Mindy Tank Top’ is from Just Because. I love tank tops and can’t wait for warm weather to make them a wardrobe staple again.

The ‘DWL’ jeans from Blueberry are the perfect fit and the soft denim is so comfy!

The ‘ARARE’ hair is from Argrace. This is from the blacks pack.

I’m wearing the ‘Cozy Tights’ applier from Izzie’s here, to cover up the bare, and chilly looking ankles.

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

This pose is from the super versatile ‘Live Free’ set of poses from Le Poppycock. They all revolve around going on a road trip and loving your vehicle! 😀

I’m at Mother Road for this shot.

The cooler is from the ‘Open Road Collection’ gacha set, and the oil bottles are from the ‘Garage Collection’ gacha set, both from Consignment. The gas can beside me is from 7 Emporium. The ‘fresh gasoline’ gas can is from zerkalo.
