What I Like

I’m so glad that there were a handful of responses to my blog, “Dangerous Proposition.” In fact, not all of them were from close friends. One of my readers, Starr, asked, “What style of blogging do you enjoy? Images with zero texts just concentrating on the quality of the image or using imagination to create a story or what?” I actually enjoy both. Obviously the photos are what grab my attention, but if the writer grabs my attention with the first few sentences I am likely to read the entire post. However, if the posts is merely describing events or the clothing, I won’t bother reading that. My best friend, Kess, does both in her blog. The first half is usually a personal story or antedote, then the photo, and then she has a section “about the stuff.” I rarely read the about the stuff part.
If the blogs are long winded stories that are filled with superfluous words, I’m likely to have a hard time comprehending and squirrels will quickly lead me astray.  I do love good quick little antidotes or stories though. It would be mighty hypocritical of me not to, considering I’m guilty of all sorts of writing with my posts.
I’m still open to questions and/or topic challenges, so feel free to comment here or on the original post. Or you can contact me inworld: Sadystika Sabretooth♥

To Turn or Not to Turn

To turn or not to turn the wheel….THAT is the question. Its like putting a shiny flashing button in front of a child and telling them not to push it. I don’t know about you, but I know my lil ass would have pushed the button. So, putting a giant wheel in front of me isn’t much different. The real question will be whether or not I’m strong enough to turn it and can I do so without breaking a nail? *giggles*

Artistic Influences

Today’s post is the answer to another question posed by Troy Nelson in response to my blog, “Dangerous Propositon.” He asked, “Who are your artistic influences?” Well, this question has me stumped, because I can’t cite any really. I just do my own thing. Sometimes I’m inspired by a song. Sometimes and outfit or accessory or even an item of decor just sparks my imagination and I’m off. Actually, there are a few SL photographers that inspire me to try something different. I doubt seriously if you’ll recognize most of their influence in my work, but a few will be pretty apparent. So, in saying that, I’m going to list a few names and each name with provide you with a direct link to their flickr account. Sabbian Paine, Ados Oldrich, Wendz Tempest, Rina Edenflower, Grace Sixpence, Kess Crystal, Brandon TaselianLoverdag, and so many others that I could fill a page listing them all. These are artists that I not only admire, but that inspire me to try new techniques. So, I guess I stand corrected, I can cite a few…*laughs* I just needed to really think about it for a minute.
I’m still open to topics and questions, so by all means feel free to leave comments. I promise that I do read them all. ♥

Why Do I Blog?

So, I did a blog post called “Dangerous Proposition” where I asked my readers to give me topics to write about, because my creative well seems to be running dry these days. The first response I got was from my friend, Troy Nelson. He gave me four topics to start off with and this was the first one. As promised, I’m going to answer the question.
I started blogging for the therapeutic value. It was a creative outlet for both my photography and my passion for writing. Not to mention, I’m rather proud of some of the outfits I put together, so there was certainly some fun in it, too.
Now that I’ve been blogging consistently for over 18 months, I’ll compare it to heroin. This is something I’ve said many times. I blog now, because I’m addicted to it. If a single day goes by that I’m not taking a picture for a blog or at the very minimum working on a scene for a picture…well, let’s just say I’m not so fun to be around. So, there’s the answer to your first question, Troy. I’ll approach your other questions separately, each will be its own blog post.
I’d like to take a minute to thank Troy and Grace for submitting topics so far. I can honestly say, I’m already enjoying the challenge. Keep em coming!!!

Guarantees

There aren’t many guarantees in life, even the stuff sold with “satisfaction guaranteed” can’t really hold true. However, there’s one thing that never fails a woman with large breasts. Tanks tops! Sleep in a tank top or some slinky little nightie with spaghetti straps and you are guaranteed to wake up with one if not both of your titties out.

Between the Lines

When doing this picture, I had this song in my head the whole time, so here we go again…I give you a link to the video and the lyrics are below. I hope you enjoy it. ♥

Stone Temple Pilots – Between the Lines

Lovely disguise, read between the lines
You rock the magic plane with no abbreviation
Three, four you sell what you bought
And there ain’t no magic pen to get back what you lost

I like it when we talk about love

I like it when we talk about love
You always were my favorite drug
Even when we used to take drugs

Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take

Penguins don’t fly
Crocodile Sunday smile
Really like to fish but don’t like superficial people
Shoe store heard it all before
From pearly whites to pearly gates
What do we have to argue ’bout

I like it when we talk about love
I like it when we talk about love
You always were my favorite drug
Even when we used to take drugs

Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take

Leave me all alone before
(Get out the way)
Never did what she was told
(Get out the way)
Seems to play at time of war
(Get out the way)
Less is big and listens more?

Lovely disguise, read between the lines
You rock the magic plane with no abbreviation
Three, four you sell what you bought
And there ain’t no magic pen to get back what you lost

I like it when we talk about love

I like it when we talk about love
You always were my favorite drug
Even when we used to take drugs

Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take
Even when we used to take

Careless

“Whoever is careless with truth in small matters cannot be trusted in important affairs.” ~Albert Einstein

This is a lesson it took far too long for me to learn. Once upon a time I defended the lies on small matters ready with justifications for other people’s lies, not to mention my own. Over the years, I’ve learned that Einstein was all too right. Those little lies are resounding red flags and alarms. I could have saved myself quite a bit of heart ache had I learned that lesson sooner. They say wisdom comes with age, but sometimes I think its really just a matter of taking too damn long to wake the hell up.
I suppose I could expand on that a bit. Whatsoever makes us feel it necessary to tell those little lie is should set off an alarm. We shouldn’t have to lie about ourselves in order to be accepted. We don’t need to puff ourselves up for outside validation. If we feel the need to do that, something is wrong. The same is to be said for accepting lies when we know the truth already. I’m not suggesting confrontation. I’m merely saying that we should take a look inwards and figure out why we would accept or project such lies. Clearly, these lies are indications that something is wrong.

Inventories Are Like Kitchens

I’ve spent an entire day sorting through my inventory. I look at it and feel as though I’ve barely made a dent. I’m quite blessed to have so much and I am grateful, believe me. Yet, I’m quite furious with myself for allowing it to become such a dreadful mess in the first place. To make matters worse, as I drop folders into sub folders, I know that those sub folder are in desperate need of sorting themselves. Worst of all? Even if I did not shopping or take on anything new until I completely sorted this inventory (never going to happen)…it’s only going to start AGAIN with the next event! It’s worse than a family kitchen…the work will never be done!

Red Witch

There were rumors about the red witch, called that because she always wore red clothing. There were no witnesses to speak of her leaving her home and people only entered her shop after dark in desperation. It’s been said that she can tell fortunes, conjure the dead, and even cast spells. Those that visit refuse to speak of their visits.

How do you know when to seek the help of the Red Witch? Word has it, she’ll come to you in your dreams.
