Reimagined

Its another song post, but I’m hoping you’ll kinda feel the connection between the picture and the music. I’m a little obsessed with this band at the moment and if you’re not familiar with them…well, check them out. So, as always I’m providing a YouTube link and the lyrics. You also have the option of scrolling on down to the credits, because hands down this dress is a must have and believe me, you really want to fork out the extra lindens for the fatpack on this one, cuz the Cynful team has gone above and beyond with this Subdub Dress!

The Contortionist Reimagined

When I found the point of life
It came creeping towards me
In the shape of eyes

It was all this reimagined
It was a different kind of speak
It was repitition
It was what you want it to be

When I saw the shape of sound
Everything came spiralling

It was all this reimagined
It was a different kind of speak
It was repitition
It was what you want it to be

Breathe
Breathe in
Once you found the breath you lost you’ll breathe again

Breathe
Breathe in
Once you found the breath you lost you’ll breathe again

It was all this reimagined
It was a different kind of speak
It was repitition

And I am exactly what you imagine me to be

Justify My Love

That’s right, I’m going with one of the sexiest songs of all time. Of course, I’m providing the lyrics and a YouTube link.

Madonna Justify My Love

I want to kiss you in Paris
I want to hold your hand in Rome
I want to run naked in a rainstorm
Make love in a train cross-country
You put this in me
So now what, so now what?

Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love (my love)
Hoping, praying
For you to justify my love

I want to know you
Not like that
I don’t want to be your mother
I don’t want to be your sister either
I just want to be your lover
I want to be your baby
Kiss me, that’s right, kiss me

Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love
Yearning, burning
For you to justify my love

What are you gonna do?
What are you gonna do?
Talk to me, tell me your dreams
Am I in them?
Tell me your fears
Are you scared?
Tell me your stories
I’m not afraid of who you are
We can fly

Poor is the man
Whose pleasures depend
On the permission of another
Love me, that’s right, love me
I want to be your baby

Wanting, needing, waiting
For you to justify my love
I’m open and ready
For you to justify my love
To justify my love
Wanting, to justify
Waiting, to justify my love
Praying, to justify
To justify my love
To justify my love
I’m open, to justify my love
My love

You Lookin’ At Me Lookin’ At You

I took a step away from writing about myself and have been writing more fictional tidbits and short short stories to accompany my photos. I have to admit it has been a lot of fun. However, there will be times like now, that a song just fits how I feel about the picture more than anything else. Today is one of those days. So, I’ll give you the YouTube link and the lyrics. Its up to you where to go from here. Either way, I wish you love & laughter, seems we could all use some of that, right?

Ozzy Osbourne You Lookin’ At Me Lookin’ At You

Pictures building in my head
Nothing done and nothing said
Talking to me with your eyes
What they say is no surprise
Things are so much different now
But nothing lasts forever

You, looking at me, looking at you
I wanna talk to you
You, looking at me, looking at you

Carry on from day to day
Even when we touch it seems miles away
I know you know I know too
Is it me or is it you?
Things are so much different now
But nothing lasts forever

I had a dream that we were through
I can’t imagine nights without you, yeah
Looks and fixes can we repair
Talking good and we just stare
Waste of love is waste of life
Save our love from the final knife
Things would be so different then
Our love would last forever

well now

Welcome To My Darkness

“Welcome to my darkness, I been here a while
Clouding up the sunlight, hurting for a smile
Or something, but something always turns into nothing….

….Acting like I’m heartless, I do it all the time
That don’t mean I’m scarless, that don’t mean I’m fine
But you’ll see, when someone else makes you this way”
Bishop Briggs – Dark Side

Its no secret that I have a dark side, I make jokes about my dark side being the side of me that likes pink, girly things like unicorns and cupcakes. I’m actually not a huge fan of those things, but its hard to hate things that bring so much joy to others. The truth is that my dark side is probably my truest side. Few people in my life have seen the darkest parts of my soul and I doubt anyone else ever will. I work really hard to keep it in check, because it can frighten people. It makes life harder than it already is.
Even the mild hints at my dark side tend to frighten people. My fascination with black clothes had my mother convinced I was a devil worshiper when I was only 19 and at one point I had black hair with blonde roots, as I am naturally blond. I was obsessed with Robert Smith of The Cure and did my make up a lot like his. Goth wasn’t a thing then, not like now. At my last job, all my co-workers had scriptures and crosses…family photos decorating their cubicles. I had skulls and dragons. When I told them I’m not a Christian, they assumed I was a devil worshiper, too. I had to explain that atheists don’t believe in the devil either. *laughs*
As, I’ve grown older, I have found more of a balance between the dark and the light. It’s helped me quite a bit and opened my world in ways I never imagined possible, but I will always embrace the dark as much if not more than the light. Its just who I am. Just like I will probably always go to sleep with the TV on…the only shows being those about crime, naturally….preferably serial killers. *grins*
I’ve recently made some changes to the way I’m blogging. I’ve been writing short stories or scenarios to go along with the photo. This is just a way to bring that balance into my creativity. I love writing, but I will admit that I’ve enjoyed writing the scenes much more than opening myself up and sharing such intimate parts of myself. I can’t promise that I will always write a story or scenario for each post, but I do think I’ll be doing it a lot more in the future. I hope that you, my readers, enjoy them as much as I do. If not, there’s always the option to just scroll on down to the details. ♥

Look What I Can Do!

When I was a kid…okay, who am I kidding, I’ll still do it, if no one is around…but I love doing handstands in a pool. Probably because its the only way my fat ass has ever been able to do a handstand at all!  I do love swimming and playing in a pool, but as I’ve said before, at this point in my life swimsuits and I are not friends in the real world. Luckily, there’s no shortage of them in Second Life and this glitzy little number from Scandalize is a must have! And do you see that adorable little pug? Yeah, Jian, did it again! This pack comes with chihuahuas and pugs! How can you resist that? Oh and this handstand I’m doing? It’s not a blogger pose, nope! Its an animation that’s built into this awesome above ground pool from VOID! You can find all the details below the picture, but this is one summer we can all have some fun…even if its just in the virtual world. I, for one, have had some of the best times of my life with my Second Life friends.

No Angel

Its a lyrics post….cuz I’m sort of on a music kick and sometimes lyrics say more than I can. Its a rock song, so if you don’t like rock…don’t listen, but this is where my head is at this morning…sooooo…yeah.

DAVEY SUICIDE – No Angel

Would you take me, if only for one night
I’ll be gone by sunrise, live forever in your mind, in your mind
Would you face me, look me straight in the eyes
Swallow all of your pride, just to take me for one night, for one night
It’s a small price to pay
Come and take the best of me
She’s got the eyes of an angel
I’ve got the thoughts of the devil
I’ve fought off all I can
Broke the halo deep within
She’s got the eyes of no angel
Is it a far cry, renting space in my mind
When I close my eyes, I think of you all the time, all the time
Nothing’s standing in the way
Come and take the best of me
She’s got the eyes of an angel
I’ve got the thoughts of the devil
I’ve fought off all I can
Broke the halo deep within
She’s got the eyes of no angel
I’ll put you in my rearview
You’re the page I’ll turn back to
Nothing’s standing in the way
Come and take the best of me
She’s got the eyes of an angel
I’ve got the thoughts of the devil
I’ve fought off all I can
Broke the halo deep within
She’s got the eyes of no angel

Keep Your Head Up

I spend an inordinate amount of time in Second Life and there’s still not enough time to do everything I want to do, to see everything I want to see, to talk to everyone I want to talk to….so whenever I hear someone in Second Life say they’re bored…well, first I want to slap them. Secondly, I want to steal their time from them, because there is ALWAYS something to do! I’m sure I’ve written about it before, but I am never bored in either world. Aside from shopping, cuz let’s face it, sometimes we do go broke…there are live music shows, dance clubs, and there are new sims to explore all the time. Not to mention there are sims that have games for the avatars inworld. How can anyone be bored here?
If you find yourself getting bored, try hitting the destination guide. I used to play a game with my friends ages ago, too…you could give it a try. We’d pick a place and the first person we saw, we’d open their profile and teleport to the first place listed in their pics. Mind you, this can send you to someone’s private land, but it can still be worth a laugh. At each place you land, another person takes a turn finding a profile to perv and find a landmark. You’d be surprised how interesting this can be. So, keep your head up, there’s loads of things to do in Second Life and if you honestly can’t find anything to do…then log out. Go find something to do in Real Life…I bet you’ve got some household chores that could use your attention. I mean, really, when was the last time you cleaned the baseboards in your house? *grins*

Final Destination

Alright, so this story has absolutely nothing to do with the picture, but as I struggled with what to write about I was also looking for something to watch on Netflix. That’s when I remembered the first time I saw the movie Final Destination. Now for those of you that have not seen it, let me give you a brief little spoiler free description provided for us by IMDB: “After a teenager has a terrifying vision of him and his friends dying in a plane crash, he prevents the accident only to have Death hunt them down, one by one.”

So, the first time I saw this movie, I was living alone and I had gotten a copy of it from a friend. Okay, it was a bootleg copy and it was a very long time ago…so not the point of the story. Please don’t judge me too harshly. So, I popped it into my computer and turned off all the lights, because that’s the only proper way to watch a horror movie, right? Now I should probably point out something for those that haven’t seen it…when people die in this movie is it very bizarre circumstances…the kind of stuff that would be on that show Curious and Unusual Deaths. Okay, so its dark…I’ve watched the movie…I’m alone. The movie ends, I’ve jumped out of my skin more than I expected and its time to get ready for bed.
I’m not afraid of the dark, obviously. I know my way around my own 760sq ft one bedroom apartment. After all, I was a property manager for the apartment complex, I’ve shown this very apartment many times before. So, I get up and make my way to the hallway, forgetting that I had left the vacuum cleaner in the dining room, but plugged into an outlet in the living room. I tripped and crashed into a wall in the hall…I feel something graze my face and realize its a shelf I have on the wall, that looks like an open window. Holy shit, that could have put my eye out! Whew! That was weird. I make it around the corner to the bathroom, turn on the light…I’m not taking any chances after the hallway. So, I’m brushing my teeth when my black cat, Jasper, comes into the bathroom and starts doing circle eights between my feet. I lose my balance and almost impale myself with the toothbrush! WTF!?!?! That’s it, I’m going to bed!
I manage to change clothes without incident and I climb into bed. I notice the wind is blowing outside and I think to myself, “Oh a storm would be nice. I love sleeping to the sound of rain.” However, it was just a really windy night and my sliding glass window is rattling something fierce. Did I mention the window was directly over my bed? Yeah, so I’m thinking…the hallway…the toothbrush….oh hell no! I get up, I move my bed to the middle of the room. Away from anything that could fall off the wall and kill me. Now, I can relax, right? WRONG!
I’m laying in my bed, listening to the wind on the window, smiling to myself for being so smart and moving away from the window. Then I seem to have developed super sonic hearing, because I’m hearing the ceiling fan wobble with each rotation. Tick, tick, tick, tick, tick….oh god, that’s going to fall right onto me…its right over my bed! ACK! Nope, the bedroom is NOT safe! I grab my comforter and my pillow and head back to the living room…no worries, I was turning on all the lights all the way there. Slowly inching my way back as I turn them off again.
So, I’m all settled in on the couch against a blank wall. Nothing to trip me nearby (I put the vacuum away) and the path to the bathroom is clear. Got it. I can hear the wind on the living room window which is a safe distance away and I’m loving the peacefulness of it all. I’m finally going to relax and get some sleep. Suddenly, out of nowhere something heavy lands on my stomach…I scream…he hisses. Goddamnit, Jasper! Yeah, I didn’t sleep that night.

Waiting Game

Alright, so this is going to be another lyrics post and I’m going to add a little something at the end. Feel free to listen, read along, or skip to the details. *winks* You know I’ll never know.

BANKS – Waiting Game

I’m thinking it over
The way you make me feel all sexy but it’s causing me shame
I wanna lean on your shoulder
I wish I was in love but I don’t wanna cause any pain
And if I’m feeling like I’m evil, we’ve got nothing to gain

What if I never even see you cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

Baby I’m thinking it over
What if the way we started made it something cursed from the start
What if it only gets colder
Would you still wrap me up and tell me that you think this was smart
Cause lately I’ve been scared of even thinking ’bout where we are

What if I never even see you cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

What if I never even see you cause we’re both on a stage
Don’t tell me listen to your song because it isn’t the same
I don’t wanna say your love is a waiting game

need you now

I played this song for Josh while I was preparing this post and he just wrapped me in his arms and whispered, “It was smart.”
I melted as last night was our 7 month anniversary. For some that doesn’t seem like a long time, for others its an eternity. For me, its something pretty special, because I honestly thought I had a four month expiration date as the last 3 people I dated in SL never stuck around longer than 4 months, regardless of who decided to end it. So, to Josh, I have this to say, “If your love is a waiting game…I’ll wait.”♥
