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.

Ends Of The Earth

Ends Of The Earth

Oh, there’s a river that winds on forever
I’m gonna see where it leads
Oh, there’s a mountain that no man has mounted
I’m gonna stand on the peak

Out there’s a land that time don’t command
Wanna be the first to arrive
No time for ponderin’ why I’m a-wanderin’
Not while we’re both still alive

To the ends of the earth would you follow me?
There’s a world that was meant for our eyes to see
To the ends of the earth would you follow me?
If you won’t I must say my goodbyes to thee

Oh, there’s an island where all things are silent
I’m gonna whistle a tune
Oh, there’s a desert that size can’t be measured
I’m gonna count all the dunes

Out there’s a world that calls for me, girl
Headin’ out into the unknown
Wayfarin’ strangers and all kinds of danger
Please don’t say I’m going alone

To the ends of the earth would you follow me?
There’s a world that was meant for our eyes to see
To the ends of the earth would you follow me?
If you won’t I must say my goodbyes to thee

I was a-ready to die for you, baby
Doesn’t mean I’m ready to stay
What good is livin’ a life you’ve been given
If all you do is stand in one place

I’m on a river that winds on forever
Follow ’til I get where I’m goin’
Maybe I’m headin’ to die but I’m still gonna try
I guess I’m goin’ alone

Ends Of The Earth‘ ~Lord Huron~

Just a song for you today on this cool(‘cold’ for this time of year) Wednesday.

A new month and a new round of FaMESHed! *Just BECAUSE* has released the ‘Stacey Jeans’ and I love them! They fit perfectly, albeit a little snug, but really show off a good butt(I’ve been told I have a good butt, anyway), they make the legs long, and the waistline is perfectly placed to show off a bit of bare midriff. The jeans include both the version with the lace(seen here) and a plain version. They fit the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), and Belleza(Freya/Isis) mesh bodies and come in 2n colours or the fatpack.

I’m sporting the ‘Knotted Raglan’ shirt from Tres Blah, here. It’s on sale right now for 75L$ for each colour and it’s fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), and Belleza(Freya/Isis) mesh bodies.

I dropped in at the NEO Japan event to grab the ‘B&G 087’ hair from DURA Hair.

I couldn’t resist the ‘Bubble Tea, Lemon Tropic’ from Pewpew!. The perfect refreshment that has a bento pose so you can take it with you anywhere. It’s available now at ~uber~.

Also available at the NEO Japan event is the ‘Saitama’ set of poses from Ana Poses, of which this is one of the 5.

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’m hanging out at Little Havana, and I’m surprised I’ve not been kicked out for loitering.

House Where Nobody Lives

House Where Nobody Lives

There’s a house on my block
That’s abandoned and cold
Folks moved out of it a
Long time ago
And they took all their things
And they never came back
Looks like it’s haunted
With the windows all cracked
And everyone calls it
The house, the house where
Nobody lives

Once it held laughter
Once it held dreams
Did they throw it away
Did they know what it means
Did someone’s heart break
Or did someone do somebody wrong?

Well the paint was all cracked
It was peeled off of the wood
Papers were stacked on the porch
Where I stood
And the weeds had grown up
Just as high as the door
There were birds in the chimney
And an old chest of drawers
Looks like no one will ever
Come back to the
House where nobody lives

Once it held laughter
Once it held dreams
Did they throw it away
Did they know what it means
Did someone’s heart break
Or did someone do somebody wrong?
So if you find someone
Someone to have, someone to hold
Don’t trade it for silver
Don’t trade it for gold
I have all of life’s treasures
And they are fine and they are good
They remind me that houses
Are just made of wood
What makes a house grand
Ain’t the roof or the doors
If there’s love in a house
It’s a palace for sure
Without love…
It ain’t nothing but a house
A house where nobody lives
Without love it ain’t nothing
But a house, a house where
Nobody lives

House Where Nobody Lives‘ ~Tom Waits~

Thanks to Vrir, I’ve just listened to pure magic. The lyrics and haunting voice of Tom Waits are a perfect combination and it’s all so true. I’m one who needs a home, I don’t feel complete without somewhere that I can leave the rest of the world and immerse myself in my own world, surrounded by what brings me peace and comfort. Some people say they can live anywhere, and I can’t relate to that. Oh, I’ve lived in different places, but have never felt more complete as when I live here, on the farm. I feel a true connection with the land that’s been in my family for generations and there’s so many memories here, but they’re not a burden, it just makes me more aware of family history and keeping the spirit of the place alive. There’s nothing so poignant as a farm yard alive with it’s history, each building and every corner having it’s own meaning for the various people who have lived here. The saying is ‘home is where you hang your hat’, but for me home is where my heart is and it’s always been right where I am now.

The September round of ~uber~ is on and *Just BECAUSE* has released the ‘Simone Top’ exclusive for the event. The deep V neckline shows a pretty decolletage and the hemline that scoops up higher on the front and goes low on the back catches the eye. It comes in 26 colours, there’s a printpack of 8 prints(one seen here) and also the fatpack is available and it contains all colours and the printpack too. The top is compatible with the Maitreya, SLink(Hourglass/Physique), and Belleza(Freya/Isis) mesh bodies.

The ‘H0919’ from tram is also at the latest round of ~uber~. The soft wisps around the face frame it well and included with this hair is a HUD to change the colour of the inner part of the hair independently. You guys all know how much I love tram, and this is another one that confirms why I do!

The jeans are ‘Jolene’ from Blueberry. You can’t see it here, but I’ve chosen the skinny leg version this time.

As per 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.

This pose is one of the 8(plus mirrors) poses in the ‘Wander’ set from .Infiniti..

I took this picture at Soul2Soul Bay. I’d not been there before, but I’ll be going back to explore again.

Kryptonite

Kryptonite

Well, I took a walk around the world
To ease my troubled mind
I left my body lying somewhere
In the sands of time

But I watched the world float to the dark side of the moon
I feel there is nothing I can do

I watched the world float to the dark side of the moon
After all I knew it had to be something to do with you
I really don’t mind what happens now and then
As long as you’ll be my friend at the end

If I go crazy then will you still call me Superman?
If I’m alive and well, will you be there a-holding my hand?
I’ll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite

You called me strong, you called me weak,
But still your secrets I will keep
You took for granted all the times
I never let you down

You stumbled in and bumped your head,
If not for me then you’d be dead
I picked you up and put you back on solid ground

If I go crazy then will you still call me Superman?
If I’m alive and well, will you be there a-holding my hand?
I’ll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite

If I go crazy then will you still call me Superman?
If I’m alive and well, will you be there holding my hand?
I’ll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite

If I go crazy then will you still call me Superman?
If I’m alive and well, will you be there a-holding my hand?
I’ll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite

Kryptonite‘ ~3 Doors Down~

When I share a song, I try to pick something that means something to me at that moment, sometimes it’s just a song I like………but no matter the reason, I rarely comment about what the song is trying to say. I think a song can mean many things to anyone who listens to it, and who am I to say what the song is actually about, unless it’s spelled out for me, I don’t know what was in the songwriter’s mind at the time. There are songs that are completely baffling, I’m not talking about the ones that are drug induced, I mean the ones that seem to makes sense…..but it’s a little beyond me how. A song needs good lyrics for me to really really like it, it doesn’t mean I have to understand it, I just want to have it move me in some way. Today’s song is just one that I’ve always liked, I don’t feel especially moved by it, I just enjoy it. The video I can do without, but I wanted to share it because how often does a person get to see some old guy with wild hair roaming around in his underwear? I suppose my Mum would answer that with, ‘Way more than anyone should, I’m living it!’. She’d totally say that! 😀

So, for this picture I was lurking behind a bush at Oboeru wearing a very small bikini, which I have to admit I was feeling just a tad uncomfortable. But , I was generally left alone to do my thing. I’m showcasing the ‘LETIZIA’ heels from **UTOPIA@DESIGN**, and these are just one more reason that Utopia is one of my all time favourite shoe and boot makers. It’s all in the details……textures so real I feel like I can touch them, great colour selections with 12 preset colours plus lots of areas to customize, and I love that there’s 5 ‘glossiness’ settings, to make them as shiny, or not, as you want. These are available now at ~uber~, which runs until August 22.

The itty bitty ‘Sunny Bikini’ is from ZK Original Fashion.

The ‘Livia’ hair is from Truth Hair and is available at ~uber~.

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’m looking at this picture and I have to admit, I’ve completely forgotten where this pose is from. I hate when that happens, I should always write these things down, but I’m used to blogging a picture right away, and it’s been a couple days since I took it. I’m sorry….if I do remember I’ll edit it. 😀

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.
