Cursed

The lyrics of this song pretty much say it all. So, I’m just gonna let Jacob Lee explain it his way, but I will give you the lyrics this time. *smiles* So, right below are the lyrics and the video is beneath the details of this incredible scene that CandyDoll has created for Epiphany. There are a few more pieces and I’ve added a few from other places, but the over all feel of this scene wouldn’t be possible without the major components from CandyDoll’s Dolly Room Gacha.

Jacob Lee – Cursed

They tell me, it’s all in my mind
They don’t know, they’re yet to try
My thoughts are safer inside
I pray it hurts less this time
They tell me, it’s all in my head
They don’t know they have to check
What lies within is a mess
This pill could fix it, I guess

Don’t say, it’s all in my brain
‘Cause I can’t help being this way
I feel the changes they’ve made
Now I don’t feel the same
Leave my secrets alone
They aren’t for you to know
I hear the knock at my door
As they take me far from my home
They say, “It’s better this way”
But the voices, they tell me I’m sane
They think they’re cleansing my veins
As they hook me up in this place

They say it starts in my skull
Makes its way down through my blood
It’s been with me since I was young
But they can’t explain what it’s from
I think that I’ve had enough
I don’t know who I can trust
Leave my secrets alone
They aren’t for you to know
I hear the knock at my door
As they take me far from my home
They say, “It’s better this way”
But the voices, they tell me I’m sane
They think they’re cleansing my veins
As they hook me up in this place
Leave my secrets alone
They aren’t for you to know
I hear the knock at my door
As they make me vacate my bones

Little Black Riding Hood

So, once upon a time people didn’t mess with fairy tales too much. Once upon a time, Little Red Riding Hood was just a little country girl, whose biggest fear was a wolf that ate her granny. Well, the days of that fairy tale are over. I bring you, Little Black Riding Hood.  Though she wears a hood, she also patrols the hood. She steps out of the darkness like a badass sexy ninja and defeats all the THOTs that circle her man’s place like sharks that have smelled blood. When she’s done destroying them she poses pretty for the paparazzi before returning home to call her grandmother. “Yes, Gma, I took care of those whores!” And this little badass lived happily ever….oh hell naw, here comes somebody else wanting to start some shit.

Pretty Promises

Pretty Promises
an original poem by Sadystika Sabretooth
He promised he’d never leave
Yet, now I’m alone
I sit in the dark with my memoies
When I was young, I was so wild and free
Now I’m locked in my head
Staring at you standing in the door
Telling me you don’t love me anymore
There’s only pieces of me left
Tucked away in a box
Like some antique photograph
Trinkets from what used to be
I can shine for a little while

Flashing my pretty little smile

Sometimes I stumble across myself
The me I was before you
The me worth loving
Before I’m smacked with the truth
That everybody leaves
Vows are pretty promises
Made to be broken
Like aged and brittle bones

Sweet Surrender

It’s a song post, because this is a classic song that I remember from my early childhood. It also kinda fits the mood of the photo. You can read anything you want into this post, but you’re imagination is your responsibility. If you make assumptions, remember that YOU made them.

Bread – Sweet Surrender

Baby I’m through runnin’ it’s true
I’d be a fool to try to escape you
Maybe I’m beat but oh what a sweet surrender
You keep your rights, I’ll take your nights
No one can lose when we turn the lights out
Tastin’ defeat, lovin’ that sweet surrender
I’m givin’ up myself to you but I didn’t really lose at all
I gave the only love I’ve known and it never hurt me to fall
Now that it’s done, so glad you won
I know our lives have only begun now
No more retreat, only my sweet surrender

Wild Horses

“I have my freedom but I don’t have much time
Faith has been broken tears must be cried
Let’s do some living after we die”
~Rolling Stones “Wild Horses”

I was going to to talk about something super twisted, but this isn’t a donkey, its a precious pony. So, I went with one of my absolute favorite songs….cuz wild girl and precious pony. What??? Don’t look at me like that!

Three Phobias

I have three phobias which, could I mute them, would make my life as slick as a sonnet, but as dull as ditch water: I hate to go to bed, I hate to get up, and I hate to be alone. ~Tallulah Bankhead

I chose this quote, because I’ve grown up hearing about Tallulah Bankhead as she was born in Huntsville, AL, which is pretty much where I grew up. She’s got an amazing and very interesting history and if you’re at all interested you can read more about here on Wikipedia or simply Google her. She was definitely a woman to be reckoned with and certainly not considered to be well behaved in her time.
So, when I was asking my dear friend, Dusty, for help with what to write about for this photo, he asked me what did this picture make me feel. Immediately, I thought of women from history that stood out as mis-behaved during their time. It was at that moment that I exclaimed him a genius, while he had no idea what I was talking about until I told him a bit about Tallulah. Had he not made this so obvious to me, I most likely would have posted a song with this picture. Instead, I’ve reignited my fascination with a local legend that passed away shortly before I turned 3 months old.

Play With Your Food

When we were babies our parents pretend our food was on a train, a plane, a roller coaster, whatever thing they found amusing enough to trick us into eating liquid peas and other disgusting mush, right? Then as we learned to use utensils for ourselves, we tried to construct mountains with mashed potatoes and river of gravy, and dog treats from some of the yuckiest vegetables and we were told, “DON’T PLAY WITH YOUR FOOD!” Now we’re adults and we can do whatever we want. Plus there are all these bizarre cooking shows and gourmet meals out there that are definitely nothing like the food we grew up with. The chefs have definitely had a field day creating some pretty interesting dishes. I say its time we rise up and say it once and for all, “I DO WHAT I WANT!” So, if you want to make a french fry mustache or walrus tusks but shoving a few fries up your nose…do it! Play with your food…have fun with it. Life throws us enough crap to take seriously. I say if you wanna play with your food, then do it!
Grace and I are all over the place and having checked in with our road trip in quite some time, but as you can see from this photo…we’re still up to no good. We’re having a blast and yes, we might have been arrested a few times…so if you’re wondering why there’s been no updates…*whistles innocently*…don’t tell her I told you, but it really was all Grace’s idea. *nods & giggles*

Jaded

One of my all time favorite bands ever will always be Aerosmith. Steven Tyler is so kooky, but he’s a good person and I have that on good authority. This song was my earworm while shooting this picture….so naturally I had to make the post about this song. Afterall, the melody is very sexy and so is this gorgeous outfit from Narcisse. So, there ya have it. Enjoy and if you don’t like Aerosmith, I dunno if we can be friends. *giggles* And as I’ve said time and time again, its my blog, so I’ll do what I want! Although, I’m gonna TRY not to do this too much going forward. Cuz..meh.

Aerosmith – Jaded

Hey j-j-jaded, you got your mama’s style
But you’re yesterday’s child to me
So jaded
You think that’s where it’s at
But is that where it’s supposed to be
You’re gettin’ it all over me, ex-rated
My my baby blue
Yeah I been thinkin’ about you
My my baby blue
Yeah you’re so jaded
And I’m the one that jaded you
Hey j-j-jaded
In all it’s misery
It will always be what I love and hated
And maybe take a ride to the other side
We’re thinkin’ of
We’ll slip into the velvet glove
And be jaded
My my baby blue
Yeah I’m thinkin’ about you
My my baby blue
Yeah I’m so jaded
And baby I’m afraid of you
Your thinking’s so complicated
I’ve had it all up to here
But it’s so overrated
Love and hated
Wouldn’t trade it
Love me jaded
Hey j-j-jaded
There ain’t no baby please
When I’m shootin’ the breeze with her
When everything you see is a blur
And ecstasy’s what you prefer
My my baby blue
Yeah I’m talkin’ about you
My my baby blue
Yeah I’ve been thinkin’ about you
My my baby blue
Yeah you’re so jaded
Baby
Jaded
Baby
You’re so jaded
‘Cause I’m the one that jaded you

RED FLAG!!

Alright, let’s talk. Ladies, I’m talking to you and myself. We’ve got to stop taking shit off these fuckers! Pay attention to the red flags! Ya know what? No, I’m not talking just to the ladies….guys, you need to listen up, too! Those red flags? Each new person you meet in SL, use the notes page of their profile, only you can see what you write there. Make a list of those red flags….every single one. Don’t let yourself forget them. Why? Because red flags are a big ass sign telling you to be careful and the more there are…well, run, dumbass! Don’t think you are going to be the one to change them or fix them. You won’t. Especially not in SL. Let’s face it, this is the land of broken souls. Let me list a few like I did with the Go Fuck Thyself post. These things apply to friendships & romantic relationships. Let’s just avoid the toxicity right up front, shall we?
Does s/he disrespect you by making overt sexual comments during your first conversation? RED FLAG!
S/He start IMs with “I’m bored.” RED FLAG!
His profile is full of all his female friends with no shout outs to a single guy? RED FLAG!
Her profile is full of all her male friends with no shout outs to any girls? RED FLAG!
Blank profiles! RED FLAG!
Immediately starts telling you that you need to change anything…from your avatar to your personality. RED FLAG!
Constantly crashes whenever the conversation gets serious. RED FLAG!
Always telling you how perfect you are? No one is perfect. They need to love you AND your flaws. Perfection is impossible and pedestals weren’t designed for two. RED FLAG!
Constantly needing to touch you, hold you too close, know your every move? Clingy much? RED FLAG!
Trying to rush you into a relationship? RED FLAG!
Do they try to isolate you? Keep you from your friends or not interested in meeting your friends? RED FLAG!
Not trying to introduce you to their friends? Claim they don’t really have any? RED FLAG!
Describe ALL of their exes as crazy? Well, you’re crazy if you don’t see this…RED FLAG!
Moody as fuck? Mean as hell one day, charming the next, sullen a day later? RED FLAG!
Super secretive about little stuff? Imagine how they are with big things. RED FLAG!
Sending you on so many guilt trips that you’re acquiring frequent flyer miles? RED FLAG!
They make you feel stupid, insult your intelligence, point out what you don’t know, mock your ideas, convinced they can change your mind? Gaslight much? RED FLAG!
Wants to keep your relationship a secret? RED FLAG!

I’m sorry to break it to you, but if you choose to ignore these red flags…well, prepare for some heart ache. I mean, maybe you’re not that emotionally invested…maybe these red flags won’t apply to you. Perhaps you have some arrangement that works for you and a friend, like FWB. I’m just saying if you want something serious with someone…these are just a few things to watch out for. In the meantime, hang in there, cuz we can do bad all by ourselves.
