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! 😀 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! 😛

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? 😀

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.

Breathe Me

Breathe Me

Help, I have done it again
I have been here many times before
Hurt myself again today
And the worst part is there’s no one else to blame

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Ouch, I have lost myself again
Lost myself and I am nowhere to be found,
Yeah, I think that I might break
Lost myself again and I feel unsafe

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Be my friend
Hold me, wrap me up
Unfold me
I am small and needy
Warm me up
And breathe me

Breathe Me‘ ~Sia~

This song says it all today, it speaks for me. I’m so lucky to have a man in my life who does all of these, and more…..freely. ♥

The newest release from Carol G Tattoo Studio is the ‘Aura’ tattoo exclusive to the Dubai Event. The front is as beautiful as the back and there’s more on the wrists and arms to make it complete. It’s a highly complex work or art and every time I look at it I see different details not seen on first glance. It comes in black(seen here), henna, and blue and is compatible with the major mesh bodies plus anything Omega driven.

The ‘H0531’ hair is from tram.

And 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.

Vrir and I are using the ‘She’s Like a Fox’ couples pose from Ana Poses. It’s a pose we could really feel with it’s gentleness and comfort.

My Immortal

My Immortal

I’m so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
‘Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won’t leave me alone

These wounds won’t seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

You used to captivate me by your resonating light
Now I’m bound by the life you left behind
Your face, it haunts my once pleasant dreams
Your voice, it chased away all the sanity in me

These wounds won’t seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me

I’ve tried so hard to tell myself that you’re gone
But though you’re still with me
I’ve been alone all along

When you cried I’d wipe away all of your tears
When you’d scream I’d fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have all of me
All of me… me… me…

My Immortal‘ ~Evanescence~

What do you notice when you see me, my lips may curl into a smile but my eyes don’t shine. Do you see that? Do you hear my laughter, but not notice the worry lines that crease my face? You might make note that I always ‘seem’ happy, but do you notice my silence when no one’s looking at me? Everyone wears a mask, or two…….and it’s only certain people that want to know the person inside that will see these things and know that what’s on the surface isn’t all that it appears to be. Through my life I’ve always had a mask ready to wear when talking with anyone. To most people I was the joker….always with a joke handy and a good natured insult for anyone I liked, but what no one knew was how exhausting it’s always been. I could wear that mask for as long as I needed to, but when I was finally alone I’d be drained mentally and emotionally and I’d plummet down into the depths minutes after smiling and saying goodbye. So, when people I’ve know for years find out I’ve struggled with depression all my life, they don’t believe it. How can someone seem so happy and full of life be depressed? Easy…..people pick up that mask…wear it for as long as they need to……then go back to their reality when alone. It’s something that I never told anyone, and generally no one ever noticed, but once every now and then someone comes along that can see through the mask…and when that happens it’s like finding the kindred spirit that’s been missing from a your life!

So, it’s October, and Thanksgiving is this weekend for us Canadians……not a good time to be a turkey! But, it’s also just a few weeks til Halloween. It’s not my favourite time of year, I hate being scared and I see nothing exciting about any of it…….so needless to say I don’t have kids stopping in for candy. But, there are some really cool things that are created in the spirit of the occasion. Sandowl of Wild Roots has created 3 incredible face tattoos and they are stunning! I’m wearing the ‘Cracked Skull Tattoo’ here and it’s available now at The Darkness Event. It’s highly detailed and creepily gorgeous with 3 ink tones included and compatible with the Catwa and Lelutka heads plus any mesh head that’s Omega driven. I could wear a layer of eye shadow at the same time easily so you’re not limited in any way. The Darkness Evet runs until the end of the month.

I know everything else in the picture isn’t clearly visible, but I’m wearing the ‘Fleeting’ hair from Stealthic and the ‘Payton Gown’ from *Just BECAUSE*.

One good thing about it being October is that the Pose Fair is underway and there’s literally tons of poses available for anyone and everyone! I’m using the ‘Apocalypse Sunrise 01’ pose from Bauhaus Movement. I have to admit to having stood on the Bauhaus Movement pose stands for a long time, but damn….they were all sooo good! You can purchase a fatpack of each set or you can purchase the poses separately, you’re choice! There’s lots of gifts available for Pose Fair group members(free to join) and there’s something for everyone there! The Pose Fair runs til the end of the month.
