One Night in Bangkok

One Night in Bangkok

The American
Bangkok, Oriental Setting
But the city don’t know what the city is getting
The crème de la crème of the chess world
In a show with everything but Yul Brynner

Time flies – doesn’t seem a minute
Since the Tyrolean spa had the chess boards in it
All changed, don’t you know that when you
Play at this level there’s no ordinary venue

It’s Iceland, or the Philippines, or Hastings
Or
Or this place!

Company
One night in Bangkok and the world’s your oyster
The bars are temples but their pearls ain’t free
You’ll find a god in every golden cloister
And if you’re lucky, then the god’s a she
I can feel an angel slidin’ up to me

The American
One town’s very like another
When your head’s down over your pieces, brother

Company
It’s a drag, it’s a bore, it’s really such a pity
To be looking at the board not looking at the city

The American
Whattaya mean?!
You’ve seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town

Company
T-girls1, warm and sweet (sweet)
Some are set up
In the Somerset Maugham suite

The American
Get Thai’d, you’re talking to a tourist
Whose every move’s among the purest:
“I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine”

Company
One night in Bangkok makes the hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can’t be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me

The American
Siam’s gonna be the witness
To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness
This grips me more than would a muddy old river
Or reclining Buddha

But thank God I’m only watching the game
Controlling it

I don’t see you guys rating
The kind of mate I’m contemplating
I’d let you watch, I would invite you
But the queens we use would not excite you

So, you better go back to your bars
Your temples, your massage parlors

Company
One night in Bangkok and the world’s your oyster
The bars are temples but their pearls ain’t free
You’ll find a god in every golden cloister
A little flesh, a little history
I can feel an angel slidin’ up to me

One night in Bangkok makes the hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can’t be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me

One Night In Bangkok‘ ~Murray Head~

I never used to have a clue what this song is about, but I’ve gotten older and wiser and it all makes perfect sense now. And believe it or not, it ties in with my picture really well. I’m wearing the ‘Chess Piece, Queen’ leg tattoo from Wild Roots, and the only thing I’m missing is my King! The ‘Chess Piece Couples’ tattoos come as a set, there’s 3 ink tones included and they’re compatible with the major mesh bodies, include Omega.

I’m standing out on the deck enjoying the sunset, and wearing the ‘Sideview Bodysuit’ from [VALE KOER], along with the ‘G1224’ hair from tram.

My pose is #83 from MILA.

I want to mention that I got brave yesterday and purchased and installed the ‘Water’ windlights from BATTLESCARS. I’ve never done that before and I was surprised at how easy it is. I’m going to need time to get the most out of them, every picture is a learning experience for me, I never want to stop learning. I love working with windlights, and now that I know how to install them…..it’s another thing I’ll become addicted to! πŸ˜€ You can get your own at the BATTLESCARS Market Place! I’m using one of the 3 ‘Water’ windlights from BATTLESCARS along with [TOR] Sunrise Chernoble windlight in the Firestorm viewer.

Radar love

Radar Love

I’ve been drivin’ all night
My hand’s wet on the wheel
There’s a voice in my head
That drives my heel
It’s my baby callin’
Says: I need you here
And it’s a half past four
And I’m shifting gear

When she is lonely
And the longing gets too much
She sends a cable
Coming in from above
Don’t need no phone at all

We’ve got a thing that’s called Radar Love
We’ve got a wave in the air
Radar Love

The radio’s playing some forgotten song
Brenda Lee’s “Coming On Strong”
The road has got me hypnotized
And I’m speeding into a new sunrise

When I get lonely
And I’m sure I’ve had enough
She sends her comfort
Comin’ in from above
Don’t need no letter at all

We’ve got a thing that’s called Radar Love
We’ve got a line in the sky
Radar Love

No more speed, I’m almost there
Gotta keep cool now, gotta take care
Last car to pass, here I go
And the line of cars drove down real slow

And the radio played that forgotten song
Brenda Lee’s “Coming On Strong”
And the newsman sang his same song
One more radar love is gone

When I get lonely and I’m sure I’ve had enough
She sends her comfort, coming in from above
We don’t need no letter at all

We’ve got a thing that’s called Radar Love
We’ve got a line in the sky
We’ve got a thing that’s called Radar Love
We’ve got a thing that’s called
Radar Love

Radar Love‘ ~Golden Earring~

I’m having one of those days that the unexpected keeps happening……it’s nothing serious, just little things to keep me on my toes. I’ll take this time while nothing’s going on to post this and sit for awhile……enjoying some peace and quiet. Have a good one, everybody!

This gorgeous leg tattoo is definitely one of my favourite tattoos from Carol G Tattoo Studio. The beautiful fall tone roses are so incredibly detailed and with it peeking out from a high cut dress, the tattoo and long leg demands attention. It’s compatible with all the major mesh bodies, including anything Omega driven and it’s available now at Cosmopolitan, but once this round is over it’ll be at Carol G Tattoo Studio main store.

This is the long version of the ‘Mia’ dress from Ison.

The beautiful ‘G1224’ hair is 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 took this picture awhile ago, and forgot to write down the pose I used, which ticks me off because I hate not naming the pose makers….the unsung heroes of SL photography.

I’m at Black Bayou Lake, where anybody who’s anybody is seen! πŸ˜›

Riptide

Riptide

I was scared of dentists and the dark
I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations
Oh, all my friends are turning green
You’re the magician’s assistant in their dreams
Oh
Oh and they come unstuck
Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you’re singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat ’cause
You’re gonna sing the words wrong
Is this movie that I think you’ll like
This guy decides to quit his job and heads to New York City
This cowboy’s running from himself
And she’s been living on the highest shelf
Oh
Oh and they come unstuck
Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you’re singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat ’cause
You’re gonna sing the words wrong
I just wanna, I just wanna know
If you’re gonna, if you’re gonna stay
I just gotta, I just gotta know
I can’t have it, I can’t have it any other way
I swear she’s destined for the screen
Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you’ve ever seen, oh
Lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you’re singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat ’cause
You’re gonna sing the words wrong
Oh lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you’re singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat ’cause
You’re gonna sing the words wrong
Oh lady, running down to the riptide
Taken away to the dark side
I wanna be your left hand man
I love you when you’re singing that song and
I got a lump in my throat ’cause
You’re gonna sing the words wrong
I got a lump in my throat because you’re gonna sing the words wrong

Riptide‘ ~Vance Joy~

I’ve been wanting to use this song for quite awhile now, I was waiting for the right time! And what does today make it the right time, you ask? Yea….I know you’re not asking that……..but what makes today right for ‘Riptide’ is that I couldn’t think of any other song that may be a better fit than this. I actually have no idea what’s going on in this song, so the only reason for me to feature it is because it’s as good as anything else I could feature. I mean, the picture is a close up of my face……with the same ‘Liz’ expression as always….so there’s nothing new to say. Anyway, have a listen to this song….if you don’t like Vance Joy doing it, you might like Taylor Swift singing it or ever Scott Helman. It’s been done by lots of performers, surely one will jump out at you.

Today it’s all about the eyes! Check out the newest release from Veechi……the ‘Vixen Shadow’ is exclusive to this round of ~uber~. It’s compatible with the Catwa, Lelutka, and LAQ bento heads and the set has 9 colour options. ~uber~ runs until November 22.

And speaking of my eyes, they’re from the ‘Soma’ set of eyes from Zombie Suicide.

My eyelashes are from the ‘Natural 2 Eyelash’ set from Mai Bilavio.

The ‘G1204’ hair from tram is one of my all time favourites!

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.

Tied Down

Tied Down

These days the lovers trade their places
Dancing all around each other’s chairs
I can see the numbness on their faces
Jealousy fills up their hearts in pairs
So please could I be selfish with your body?
‘Cause I don’t think I could share you with nobody

Oh when I have you
I’m gonna brand you with my lips
And all of the world will know that you’re mine now
We’ll never lose faith
‘Cause we’ll never forget this taste
My love has the power to keep the tide down

Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh ill get you tied down, tied down

Ohh, late at night you’ll hear the screaming echo
But we all pretend we never heard the cries in the daytime
Don’t you worry my touch won’t leave you hollow
I’m never going to let you change your mind

Oh, when I have you
I’m gonna brand you with my lips
And all of the world will know that you’re mine now
We’ll never lose faith
‘Cause we’ll never forget this taste
My love has the power to keep your tied down

Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied, ohh
Ohh, I’ll get you tied down, tied down

Don’t be afraid to leave your mark
Give me the scars to remind me
Just how good you are (how good you are)
And if your faith turns into to dark
Pull me closer and know
That it’s enough to keep you tied down

Tied Down‘ ~Jaymes Young~

Take two…….I just deleted a whole paragraph of text while struggling to write something. Some days are so easy…and other days the only words I can put together is,’ hey, how are ya?’. Today is obviously the latter! So I’ll keep it short and simple today……..hey….how are ya? πŸ˜€

I want to show you the wonderful artwork of Sandowl from Wild Roots! Her tattoos are always highly detailed and eye catching. This is the ‘Love is Kind’ tattoo and along with the incredible message, it’s perfectly placed to show perfectly to show it to the best effect! The full saying on it is, ‘Love is patient, love is kind’ and it’s words to live by, because there’s just not enough love in this world. It’s compatible with the major mesh bodies, Omega, and classic avatars so no one’s left out!

The ‘Widowmaker’ lingerie set is from [Cynful] Clothing & Co. and it’s available at Collabor88 for a few more days, then it’ll be at the mainstore. The set is compatible with the SLink(Hourglass), Belleza(Freya/Isis), and Maitreya mesh bodies and includes sheer and solid versions.

The ‘G1224’ hair from tram is so feminine with lots of wisps.

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.

This pose is from set 91 from Overlow Poses.

Broken Arrow

Broken Arrow

Who else is gonna bring you a broken arrow
Who else is gonna bring you a bottle of rain
There he goes moving across the water
There he goes turning my whole world around
Do you feel what I feel
Can we make that so it’s part of the deal
I gotta hold you in these arms of steel
Lay your heart on the line this time
I want to breathe when you breathe
When you whisper like that hot summer breeze
Count the beads of sweat that cover me
Didn’t you show me a sign this time
Who else is gonna bring you a broken arrow
Who else is gonna bring you a bottle of rain
There he goes moving across the water
There he goes turning my whole world around
Can you see what I see
Can you cut behind the mystery
I will meet you by the witness tree
Leave the whole world behind
I want to come when you call
I’ll get to you if I have to crawl
They can’t hold me with these iron walls
We’ve got mountains to climb
Who else is gonna bring you a broken arrow
Who else is gonna bring you a bottle of rain
There he goes moving across the water
There he goes turning my whole world around
Turning my whole world around

Broken Arrow‘ ~Robbie Robertson~

Today is ‘Twitter Trending’ day for me…..let me take a look and see what’s going on in the Twitterverse! Hmmmm…..there’s ‘Nashville’, ‘SundayFunday’ and , ‘Charles Wang’………oh wait….here’s a good one! #DeclineAPartyIn4Words ……that’s one I can relate to, not that anyone invites me to parties anymore. Anyone that would, knows that I won’t go, and they know not to put me in the situation of having to decline the invitation. I could just say, ‘no thanks, I’m busy’ but I unless I really am busy I just can’t say I am, when I’m not. I could be rude and say, No way, you suck’, but I hate being rude as much as I hate lying. I could make up all kinds of excuses like ‘no thanks, I’m pms’ing’ or ‘nope, I’m already drunk’. But really, even if the person asking knows nothing about me, they just have to look into my eyes and see my ‘deer in the headlights’ look and they should automatically decline for me! It’s not that I’m not friendly, I just don’t like parties, or going out, or being with people, or people! πŸ˜€

Vrir and I just standing out on the deck watching the world go by, which is much more interesting while wearing lingerie, which is from the ‘Diana’ set from /erratic/. I obviously can’t keep my hands off of Vrir, he’s in the newest suit from Deadwool…..and mmm mmmm mm……he’s looking hawt! πŸ˜€

We’re using the gift pose from HCXII, which is available at the Pose Fair, which runs until the end of the month.
