Play Me

Play Me

She was morning, and I was night time
I one day woke up
To find her lying beside my bed
I softly said “Come take me”
For I’ve been lonely in need of someone
As though I’d done someone wrong somewhere
But I don’t know where, I don’t know where
Come lately

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me

Song she sang to me
Song she brang to me
Words that rang in me,
Rhyme that sprang from me
Warmed the night, and what was right
Became me

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me

[Instrumental]

And so it was that I came to travel
Upon a road that was thorned and narrow
Another place, another grace
Would save me

You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me
You are the sun, I am the moon
You are the words, I am the tune
Play me……

Play Me‘ ~Neil Diamond~

It’s been a really quiet Saturday, so far…..and I don’t expect it’s going to change. I’m going to keep it simple in order to not overtax my brain, so it’s just a song for you today! And of course a photograph…..of me…….again. I hope you’re all having a great weekend!

I’m using one of the poses from the ‘Bodyache’ sets of poses from Le Poppycock here. There’s 2 sets with 7 poses in each set and they’re all a nice variety of standing, sitting and laying………and all perfectly sexy! The ‘Bodyache’ sets of poses are available now at The Chapter Four.

I’m wearing the sexy ‘Anyway Bodysuit’, in black, from Asteria. It comes with both a solid and a lace version here with the option to wear the belt or not. The metals are HUD driven with 4 options each for the belt and the neck.

The ‘Bloom’ hair is from TRUTH Hair.

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 on the ‘Distressed Piano’ from Nutmeg and the sheet music is also from them, and both are available now at Shiny Shabby.

The ‘Sepia Peonies’ are from Nomad.

I visited the ‘Cafe des Arts’ at Summers Wind for this picture. Imagin@rium Art has an exposition by Giancarlo Perini, from RL to SL, and it’s outside, plus there are some nice pieces inside, which is where I am here.

Moondance

Moondance

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

[Chorus:]
Can I just have one a’ more Moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love

Well, I wanna make love to you tonight
I can’t wait ’til the morning has come
And I know that the time is just right
And straight into my arms you will run
And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure that you’re never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true, dear
There and then I will make you my own
And every time I touch you, you just tremble inside
And I know how much you want me that you can’t hide

Moondance‘ ~Van Morrison~

It’s cloudy and cool, a bit of drizzle coming down and a light breeze from the north makes it cooler than the temperature suggests. The lights are low and the house is warm as I sit in a mostly dark computer room, with only a salt lamp casting a dim light beside the computer. The dog’s stretched out on her bed, sound asleep, and everything outside is tucked in for the night, which leaves me here to sit quietly and think. I’ve had far too much coffee today, I’ve seen too much news, and although the day was quiet, I’m a little unsettled. I can enjoy this cozy solitude though, I have a beautifully scented candle burning and I’m really tempted to get the furnace to kick in to have it really toasty in here this evening. This is my reality at this moment, but what I want to be doing? The picture is worth a thousand words, snuggled warmly in Vrir’s arms, both of us elegantly dressed, the piano awaits someone to play so we can dance long into the night, pressed close together. Because it’s a marvelous night for a moon dance, with the stars up above in the sky. And I can’t deny it’s a fantabulous night to make romance ‘neath the cover of August(?) skies. Tonight in my thoughts I’m going to dance like no one’s watching and love like I’ve never been hurt. ♥

I’m wearing the form fitting and elegant ‘Nadine Gown’ from *Just BECAUSE* for the evening of romance and dancing. It’s a new release at the main store and it’s truly gorgeous. It’s simple top leaves the perfect amount of skin for the imagination, the flowing skirt that trails beautifully behind, and the brocade detailing all make this a classic. It comes in 32 colours and is fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass), and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies.

The gorgeous ‘Bloom’ hair is from Truth Hair, this is from the ‘Multitone 1’ set.

The ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink.

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.

The pose is one of the animations from the ‘Distressed Grand Piano, dark’ from Nutmeg and available now at Shiny Shabby.

The ‘Sepia Peonies’ from Nomad are on the piano.

Superman’s Song

Superman's Song

Tarzan
Wasn’t a ladies’ man
He’d just come along and scoop ’em up under his arm like that
Quick as a cat
In the jungle

But Clark Kent
Now there was a real gent
He would not be caught sittin’ around in no junglescape,
Dumb as an ape
Doing nothing

Superman never made any money
For saving the world from Solomon Grundy
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man like him

Hey Bob,
Supe had a straight job
Even though he could have smashed through any bank in the United States,
Well he had the strength,
But he would not

Folks said
His family were all dead
Planet crumbled but Superman, he forced himself to carry on,
Forget Krypton,
And keep going

Superman never made any money
For saving the world from Solomon Grundy
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man like him

Tarzan was king of the jungle and Lord over all the apes
But he could hardly string together four words “I Tarzan, You Jane”

Sometimes when
Supe was stopping crimes
I’ll bet that he was tempted to just quit and turn his back on man
Join Tarzan
In the forest

But he
Stayed in the city,
And kept on changing clothes in dirty old phone booths ’til his work was through
And nothing to do
But go on home

Superman never made any money
For saving the world from Solomon Grundy
And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man like him

And sometimes I despair the world will never see another man like him

Superman’s Song‘ ~Crash Test Dummies~

I’m short of words today, so all you’re going to get out of me is a song, by the Canadian band ‘Crash Test Dummies’. If you never click on the link of the songs I share, I suggest you click on this one, it’s worth a listen.

I have to admit to being completely in love with shoes from **UTOPIA@DESIGN**, it’s all I’ve been wearing for quite some time, and here are a pair of my favourites. These are ‘Odette’ and I will confess that there are times that the only thing I wear are these shoes. The HUD has 12 preset colour combinations, plus 6 areas to customize with 10 colours, plus metals and there’s 5 levels of glossiness. They’re fitted for the Maitreya(seen here), SLink, and Belleza mesh feet and I’m proof that they shape the leg perfectly and make it look like I have legs right up to there!

I made a quick trip to the August round of Shiny Shabby and it’s a good thing it was quick, because it didn’t take me long to bog down from the lag, it was like Boxing Day shopping in August. I grabbed what I went for, which is the newest release from Nutmeg, the ‘Distressed Grand Piano’ and accompanying accessories, which can all be purchased in a fatpack. The bench, music sheets on the floor and standing, along with the vintage metronome along with the piano with 4 different colours of drape with it all make a gorgeous setting for a picture as the centerpiece of a scene or a backdrop to show off some shoes. Shiny Shabby runs until the end of the month.

I’ve added the ‘Sepia Peonies’ from NOMAD to the scene for a little bit of floral decor in gorgeous muted tones.

The pose is from the ‘Frequency’ set of poses from Le Poppycock.

Comfortably Numb

Comfortably Numb

Hello,
Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone at home?

Come on now
I hear you’re feeling down
Well, I can ease your pain
And get you on your feet again

Relax
I’ll need some information first
Just the basic facts
Can you show me where it hurts?

There is no pain, you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I’ve got that feeling once again
I can’t explain, you would not understand
This is not how I am
I have become comfortably numb

I have become comfortably numb

O.K.
Just a little pin prick
There’ll be no more aaaaaaaah!
But you may feel a little sick

Can you stand up?
I do believe it’s working, good
That’ll keep you going through the show
Come on, it’s time to go.

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying
When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown
The dream is gone
I have become comfortably numb.

Comfortably Numb‘ ~Birdtalker~

I have a fairly large collection of lingerie and I’m always looking for more. I bet everyone is sitting there thinking this is what I sit around the house in when I’m not doing anything, but noooo, I keep it on hand for when I have to be sexy, because I don’t consider Liz sexy in everything she wears. I’m not sure if ‘sexy’ comes naturally for Liz, I think it’s something she has to work at being and like most women sexy usually means lingerie. I have a few favourite lingerie makers and BigBeautifulDoll is one of them. The ‘DAISY’ set of lingerie is the newest release and it’s available at ~uber~ until July 23. It’s fitted for the Maitreya and SLink mesh bodies, the stockings come with 3 colours and the set includes bra, panties, and garter.

Also at the current round of ~uber~ is the ‘G0531’ hair from tram.

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’m sitting on the ‘Accent Gift Chair’ from Nutmeg for this shot.

The pose I’m using is ‘simply sexy 9’ from evolove. I was doing some pose shopping at the Mystic Timbers sim, which has an array of stores to shop along with all kinds of photogenic areas, including the newly opened platform with a post apocalypse theme. By the way, the ‘Mystic Love Challenge’ is on and you have until Juyly 15 to submit your photos for judging. Mystic Timbers and evolove are sponsoring this contest so you can get all the rules and details by dropping in at Mystic Timbers.

Ooohh Ooooh Oooh Oooh

Ooohh Ooooh Oooh Oooh

Do you hear me, I’m talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky, oh my, baby I’m trying
Boy, I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

Lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

They don’t know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I’ll wait for you, I promise you, I will

Lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we’re in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I’m sailing through the sea
To an island where we’ll meet
You’ll hear the music fill the air
I’ll put a flower in your hair
Though the breezes through the trees
Move so pretty you’re all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

Lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I’m lucky we’re in love in every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Lucky‘ ~Jason Mraz (feat. Colbie Caillat)

I bet you’re wondering what the heck’s with the title for this post. Since finding the right title for a new post is one of the hardest things to do, I started using the name or a phrase from the song I’m featuring. Well, the name of the song is ‘Lucky’ which didn’t thrill be and while scanning the lyrics of it nothing really jumped out at me. So, instead of trying to say something profound, I opted for the more generic ‘ooohh’ part of the lyrics. I wish it had had some ‘mmmm’s’ or some ‘uh huh’s’, but the ‘ooooh’ will have to do. You know people have written blog posts about naming blog posts, giving all kinds of hints on making it say what you want. In the beginning of my blogging I’d spend more time thinking of a title for it than it would take me to write the whole thing, slurls and all. I do try to make it mean something, but there’s no promises, as you can see by the title of this one! Ooohh oooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, etc etc!

I know the month has has been speeding by and I’m just now telling you about the ‘Hester Top’ from *Just BECAUSE*, but I’m hoping the saying ‘better late than never’ holds true in this instance. This top is available until June 6 at Collabor88 and with the hot weather upon us, at least in my part of the world, a cool top is needed. It comes in tons of colours with the fatpack including 26 colours plus 4 bonus prints, the ruffle has an on/off toggle and it’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique) and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies.

The super versatile ‘Lila Jeans’ are from Blueberry. The fatpack includes tons of colours for the denim and metals, plus both ‘cutie’ and ‘Blueberry’ bootie options.

The ‘Lakia’ hair is from +elua+, this is from the ‘cafe’ pack of colours.

My look all starts with the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya. I wanted to look kind of happily dreamy for this one, so I’m putting my animations HUD from Catwa to good use.

I got into Shiny Shabby on the first day and the ‘Old Tricycle’ in green, from Nutmeg, caught my eye. It has male and female poses made by RK Poses, but of course I have to be different and use a pose from the ‘Single Poses set 16’ from The Owl.

I’m at the always lovely Neverfar sim for this picture. I’m a group member to make rezzing possible.
